The VF-2SS Valkyrie II SAP was essentially the default configuration of U.N. Spacy’s space optimized variable fighter, the VF-2SS Valkyrie II. The base VF-2SS’ armaments were limited to a pair of beam cannons, but the Super Armed Pack (SAP) added multiple weapons, including a large railgun, a medium-size railgun, six long-range missiles, 54 mini-missiles and five auto attack bits. The auto attack bits were drone units that can support the VF-2SS, but were not capable of functioning independently. Aside from the extra armaments, the SAP also included a large antenna and communications pod. During the Mardook War of 2082, the Valkyrie II SAP was notably used by ace pilots like Nexx Gilbert and Sylvie Geena’s Fairy Squad.
