  • Type: Variable space fighter-interceptor.
  • Equipment Type: Variable Vehicles
  • Government: UN

The VF-1 Valkyrie series proved to be clearly inadequate against enemy battlepods as a "space superiority fighter." This was compensated by equipping it with augmentative parts, but the military pressed for the development of a "complete space fighter-interceptor." The project was drafted on the Macross as it was travelling through space.

The resulting prototype VF-X3 was seen as a significant step above the VF-1 series. The armor was doubled, overall power output was increased three times, and the statistical firepower was increased 32 times over the standard VF-1. However, since there was no inertial control system sufficient for it, the burden on the pilot increased, and the project was canceled due to numerous accidents that occurred. A unique feature of this series is the lack of the VF-1's GERWALK mode. This is because the GERWALK mode has little useful value in space.


  • Two liquid-cooled electrically-charged particle beam launchers.
  • Two three-grenade grenade racks. Seven infrared laser systems.
  • Two micro-missile phalanxes.
  • Six missile bays.



These are specifications created for The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Remember Me, Skull Leader, and Love Stories Pc games by FamilySoft. Just as in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross II: Lovers, Again, FamilySoft's game trilogy used Studio Nue's mecha designs without its participation in the story.
