It's pretty much impossible to find out on the internet, so i can just about believe that.

Know any of her album titles? Would really like to hear more of her stuff, especially after that song you just linked.

But anyway, back on topic...

I just picked up the new issue of Newtype Ace today, and, completely apart from a total mindfuck episode of Macross the First, it had some info about Macross Last Frontier, including some pretty awesome YF-29s.

Spoiler for YF-29s:

Huh, how can they do a mindfuck issue of Macross the First? I thought it's almost a straight retelling?

Is this really confirmed? I've never been able to find out in the past.

Judge for yourself:


It's Emilia's voice, yes?

So the human mecha are giant robots with a pilot while the Zentadi mecha are more like battlesuits. Hmmm. I wonder if the Zentradi (or their new human friends) ever tried to design a giant robot mech that would basicaly be the same scale difference as a human to a VF-1 just for Zentrati.

The rebel Zentradi Variable Glaug was a attempt of cultured rebel Zentradi to copy the capability of VFs to transform into three modes.

Spoiler for Zentradi Variable Glaug:


UN Spacy captured one and created a Miclone version of it.
Spoiler for UN Spacy Variable Glaug:


UN Spacy also built an unmanned version without the battroid form.
Spoiler for Neo Glaug:


As for the question the VA-14 a cousin of the VF-14 Vampire hints as such. But we aren't sure as we've never seen a VA-14 per se. Some speculate the Varauta version of the VF-14 is the VA-14 but that would make it miclone sized VF.

So there are a far as canon goes two VF-14 variants and the unseen VA-14.

http://macross.anime.net/wiki/VA-14
Quote:
* Type: Variable fighter-attack craft for Zentadi pilots.
* Equipment Type: Variable Vehicles
* Manufacturer: General Galaxy/Mikoyan
* Government: U.N.
* Customers: UNS, including Macross 05 fleet.

Development began around 2025 on the VA-14 as a variable fighter-attack craft for Zentradi pilots. The VA-14 has a larger frame compared to the VF-14, but the two units share the basic structure and transformation system. It also has comparatively heavier armor and weaponry, but because the engine thrust was increased along with wings being completely redesigned, it has higher combat maneuverability within the atmosphere. Mass production began around 2030 as the main attack craft primarily for Zentradi colony planets and fleets. Many are still in service.
Spoiler for VF-14 Macross 7 Plus Spiritia Dreaming and Macross Plus version:


Spoiler for VF-14 Macross M3 Max and Millia versions:

I was thinking more of something huge were the Zentradi sit in a tiny cockpit (like there miclone cousins) and the big robot can tranform around them in the same general scale difference as th VF-1 The less than 2 meter high human verse the what 10 meter high mech, vs a 10 or so meters tall Zentradi verse a mech somewhere around 50 or 60 meters tall.

Fanfic related question:

Anyone got any ideas on how to make sense of the mix of missiles the VF-171s carry? They seem to carry two long range types which are often fired simultaneously even though one type looks like it ought to have a longer burning engine (due to the weapon's own greater length).

I'd thought perhaps the longer missiles could be some sort of high speed anti ship missile which had secondary anti-fighter applications thanks to a multi function fuse with proximity mode. But the missiles are narrow in profile, more like an air to air weapon than an anti-ship weapon.

To complicate matters further, the VF-171EX mounts containers on one arm that are supposedly for anti-ship missiles. However these missile containers don't seem like a good fit for any of the underwing ordinance or practically any missile at all for that matter due to their shape (look at them head on -they narrow out at either the top or bottom -what the heck type of missles are in those?).
