Technical and Historical Notes

Due to the VF-1 Valkyrie being unable to escape a planetary atmosphere under its own power, U.N. Spacy utilized an escape booster that could attach to the variable fighter. Subsequent advances in OverTechnology in later generations allowed variable fighters to escape an atmosphere unassisted, thus eliminating the need for escape boosters.
