Technical and Historical Notes

 

The VC-079 Civilian Valkyrie was a commercial variable fighter manufactured by Tachikahoff Corporation. As an unarmed commercial unit, it omitted the Battroid mode used by military variable fighters. Unlike most other variable fighters, the VC-079 had a large cockpit that accommodated a pilot and passenger and featured a transparent canopy on both the top and bottom. The VC-079 was capable of launching from Earth into space, but it required a booster. In 2092, reporter/pilot Hibiki Kanzaki and cameraman Dennis Lone launched in a VC-079 owned by the Scramble News Network (SNN) to cover a battle between U.N. Spacy and the alien Mardook. Hibiki flew the VC-079 into a Mardook ship to get an interior view for Dennis, which resulted in Dennis being killed in an explosion and Hibiki smuggling the Mardook Emulator Ishtar back to Earth. Later, Hibiki flew an SNN VC-079 from the Moon into battle to return Ishtar and save U.N. Spacy pilot Sylvie Geena.
