VF-1X Plus Valkyrie
Version 0.1 - Last Modified: 01/11/02
The VF-1 Valkyrie is widely regarded as the most popular variable fighter ever made.
Between 2009 and 2015 over six thousand Valkyries were constructed. In 2025 the UN Spacy
approved a program to update the remaining Valkyries with modern technology. Valkyries that were upgraded
were reclassified as VF-1X Plus Valkyries. They new Valkyries were comparable with the younger
types of variable fighters of UN Spacy, ensuring many more long years of service.
The main upgrade for the Valkyries consisted of replacing the long-outdated FF-2001 thermonuclear reaction
turbine engines with Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Rolls Royce FF-2079J engines. These new engines were
approximately the same size and weight as the original FF-2001s, but provided far greater thrust and
maneuverability. In addition, the FF-2079Js had much lower fuel requirements than the older engines, so space
and weight formerly devoted to fuel could be used for armor and system improvements. Other improvements
include an improved combat computer, heads-up canopy displays, a redesigned control panel layout, improved
radar and sensor systems.

Like the Valkyrie itself, the standard issue armament for VF-1 was upgraded
to take advantage of new technological advances. The GU-11 Plus gun pod's
(normally just called the GU-11) main difference from its predecessor is that
it uses clips of ammunitions, instead if the internal drum. This allowed for
