From Macross Compendium

Shinsei Industries VF-19A Excalibur


  • Manufacturer: Shinsei Industries
  • Equipment Type: Variable vehicles
  • Affiliation: Shinsei Industries

Air race model that the Shinsei Industries Frontier Fleet-branch sent into Vanquish.

When the company placed this unit into the race in 2056, it received criticism that they were trying to win the race by steamrolling through financial power.

Although the airframe is a VF-19A, which is the direct mass-produced variant of the YF-19, data from the C-type and P-type are actually reflected. Although it is not certain, there is a theory that an experimental model developed under the update plan, "Fire", for the VF-19 using the operation data from the VF-19s in the Macross 7 fleet, which Shinsei planned for the YF-24 Evolution Plan, was placed into the races.
