How would the Death Star attack run have been if the Rebels had VF-1s instead of X-Wings/Y-Wings?

Max doing some sort of 0-g momentum spin like Vader while transforming a bunch while cruising down the trench would be pretty cool
>>
The critical flaw of the Empire was fielding insignificant numbers of TIEs for area defense, which isn't helped by giving the Rebs valkyries.

VF-1 battroid looks dumb sometimes. The legs aren't even attached to anything there. But yes Valkyries would wreck shit in Star Wars universe.

>>13462072
Which one is faster, an X-wing or a VF-1?

>Episode 7 will not have a space bard flying around in his custom X-Wing, shouting at Empire remnants and New Republic to stop fighting and to listen to his song
>Episode 8 & 9 will not be about said space bard fighting the not-Vong with rock and roll

Watch that clip closely, one of those missiles is painted like a Budweiser can!

Logically, the X-Wing would have to be faster in order to escape the atmosphere, but atmosphere's don't seem to work the same way in Star Wars that they do IRL, so I might be wrong.

VF-1 is obscenely more maneuverable, so it wins out. There are some faggots that try to argue the VF-1 can't penetrate the X Wing Shields (hence why proton torpedoes have a coating of plasma to break enemy shields) but they seriously overestimate the actual protective capabilities of said shields.

Macrossfags are literally gigantic autistic spergs, who would've guessed?

well on the one hand no force shot. On the other I guess it's moot when you can turn into a stationary robot and just you know. Shoot straight down

!!
But they can, they'll just kill the pilot.
>>
There would've been a gigantic cyborg Grand Moff Tarkin at the end of the trench so Luke would have to transform his Valkyrie into Battroid mode and riddle his face with bullets

Ackbar's flagship transforms into a giant robot and blasts its way into the Death Star then?
>>
>>13464790
They slam dunk the Death Star into the Maw.
>>
>>13462072
They would capture the Death Star instead of destroying it because they could walk around inside of it.
>>
I dunno, some of the later VFs I don't see having any trouble doing this but is the VF-1 really that good?
>>
>>13463084
Yeah, the shields never seemed to accomplish much besides get blown out.
>>
>>13463084
Pretty sure escaping the atmosphere is done with repulsorlift assistance. X-Wings never seemed particularly fast by /m/ standards.
>>
>>13465012

If it was a later era VF, they wouldnt even need to do the trench run.

Pinpoint barriers are fucking bullshit, man.
