As to answer your question, i'll quote myself.



Quote:
I guess the designers of the "New Macross" Class had a change of heart. [About Transforming Ship]

After all, they too thought it wasn't necessary, hence the predecessor "Megaroad" Class. [non-transformable ship]

I suppose when they order came though that they needed a "Battle Ready" Flagship to protect a fleet, they turned to the reassuring design of the SDF and Valkyries.

A.K.A Mankind's Saviour.

Hence why they can transform to the point that they even have "fingers" to pull a trigger on a weapon the size of a small ship.

But there are advantages to a separated Cannon, especially one the size of a ship, versus an integrated system. [and the humanoid shape itself]

Maintenance: It's far easier to service a ship-size weapon as a ship. m9ove it out to a spacedock. etc etc.

Design: It is far easier to devote an entire frame the size of a ship.... within a ship. Why be constrain to an exposed subsystem such as into an arm or backpack? Got more space and potential to devote an entire dedicated ship power plant to the weapon.

Battlefield Practicality [Humanoid Shape]: If the ship cannon is damage, just detached and grab another one. No need to worry about a shared power source.

It can be used as a physical weapon in emergences, without fear that it will damage the commanding ship itself.

:P

Who was that pink Valkyrie fighter that shot Alto's rifle when he tried to save Luca? Is he on the Vajra side? I mean near the end of the episode it's in fold space and we see other valkyries with him (Are those UN as well?)

Okay I thought you meant him, but I don't see the resemblance. A fake eye alone doesn't really connect them. (he's got a beard and mustache, and an "eye"-thing in his forehead, too)

I think its the similar bald pattern *ROFL*

On a side note:

Hmm, so Infinity is the new song.

Oh, Mr. Hoshi as "lone bad ass" is confirmed as per the credits
