Airframe was modified for journalism based on the double-seat training variant of the VF-11 Thunderbolt, the VF-11D. The large-sized camera pod serves as both a powerful directional-communications system and is equipped with a camera which has super-long distances photography capabilities equal to a military force-reconnaissance airplane.

It is equipped with an A.I. model, which specializes in instant news editing, has the specifications matching a broadcasting station of a small immigration ship. Hence, "The moving studio". Because it does not have the thrust to follow AVF or similar, it uses a custom Super pack depending on the mission, like races.
