Macross VOXPlus Mod: YF-19 Colour Schemes
The YF-19 is the "hero" mecha from the show Macross Plus.
The Macross Mecha
Manual gives a good description of this great variable fighter:
"The YF-19 was designed with several technologies that would become the standard
for those next generation variable fighters built to fulfill the operational demands of the UNAF/UNS. These
technologies included an active stealth system, an anti-projectile shield, an optional fold booster for
interstellar travel and a fighter-scale pin-point barrier system which sheathed portions of the variable
fighter in an energy barrier that could move across the hull to intercept and defeat incoming fire.
Installed Shinnakasu thermonuclear engines provided the YF-19 with unparalleled thrust, also allowing the
variable fighter to attain orbital velocity over an Earth-class planet unassisted. The VF-11 achieved much
for Shinsei Industries with a stripped-down, basic design but the YF-19 benefited from advances such that
Shinsei built the craft with much greater standard ordnance. Superior miniaturization and the larger
airframe of the YF-19 created space for internal missiles mounted in the engine/leg units that maintained
the variable fighter stealth capabilities. With up to four internal missile palettes, the YF-19 additionally
utilized a fixed rearward anti-aircraft laser gun turret, two semi-fixed converging energy cannons in each
wing (optionally laser cannons) and a new Howard GU-15 standard external Gatling gun pod (with field-replaceable
magazines). The YF-19 was initially a difficult craft to operate in the testing phase and was flown by seven
different test pilots during various trials. Shinsei was nonetheless determined to move forward and the YF-19
achieved incredible success in the Super Nova AVF, proving that Shinsei could rely upon practical proven methods
for a superior next generation variable fighter."
