1/100 scale YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie Alto Custom
The YF-29 Durandal is one more fuselage that was developed from the YF-24 Evolution in order to oppose the Vajra, unknown space creatures.  Its development is advanced centred on engineers of such organizations as the L.A.I. Co. and the Macross Frontier Fleet.  With the installation of 4 thermonuclear turbine engines with great output, the YF-29's development was advanced as a fuselage that has epoch-making manoeuvrability due to that great engine output.
On the other hand, even though a lot of fold quartz was needed to manifest it's presumed performance, it's development was a success due to the Vajra remains on hand.  Innovative devices were invented, such as the Fold Wave System which enables an inexhaustible supply of energy, and at last, the YF-29 was completed.
The YF-29 was built to oppose the Vajra.  However, having taken in that capability, it means that the existence of the YF-29 itself approaches that of the Vajra.  It not only an overwhelming fighting ability, but brings about a mysterious capability.....

Saotome Aruto
A second grader in the Mihoshi Academy's Spaceflight Department's Pilot Training course.  Starting with the Vajra invasion, he enlists in the private military provider S.M.S..  He participates in the fight as a newcomer Valkyrie pilot.  Even though he was born into the Saotome clan, a distinguished kabuki family, he resisted advancement on the road that his parent had decided.  At present, he is currently disinherited from the family.  From a young age he had strong aspirations to "fly in the air", and he displays talent as a pilot.  Starting with the Vajra invasion, he enlists in the private military provider S.M.S..  He participates in the fight as a newcomer Valkyrie pilot.  While repeatedly fighting, his bonds with Ranka and Sheryl deepen.
