I read somewhere that they were originally going to use the VF-19, but it just looked too similar to the VF-25 in the action shots, so they went with something else. It makes sense, so it's as good an explanation as I need.

In-universe, we can simply put it down to different fleets deciding to field different variable fighters. We already know that the laws aren't uniform between fleets, so it's not a very big stretch.
