Instruction Booklet:

1/100 scale VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie Alto Custom
As of 2059, the VF-25 a new-generation variable fighter whose development advanced as the successor aircraft of the New Unified Forces' VF-171 main variable fighter.  Based on the airframe date of the prototype YF-24, which was designed by the Earth New Unification Forces, the VF-25 was an improvement development by the Frontier Fleet's private enterprise, the L.A.I. Co., and the Shinsei Industry Co..  At present, with the purpose of being a a test run, it is deployed to S.M.S..  It can transform to the 3 modes that define a VF: fighter, GERWALK and battroid.  Even though the form of its outward appearance emulates the VF-1, the transformation mechanism is truly different.  The VF-25 design values aerodynamic characteristics, and as it's whole body is slim, it can also convert while equipped with armour parts.
At the same time as the VF-25's airframe, such things as super parts, armour parts and reconnaissance packs were developed as performance extending modules.  By exchanging modules, the VF-25 can be expanded to the multiple purposes of fighter, attacker, fighter bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, and unmanned fighter squadron command craft.  The fuselage is custom-made and suited to the pilots and mission characteristics of S.M.S..

Saotome Aruto
A high school student who attends the Mihoshi Academy High School's Pilot Training course.  Even though he is often mistaken for a woman from his clean-cut face and long hair, he is a vigorous young man.  He has a personality whose usually rebellious and takes on a defiant attitude.  Even though he was born into the lineage of a distinguished kabuki family, he has an eye on being a Valkyrie pilot because of his yearning for the sky and discord with his father.  Even though Aruto bore anguished feelings living in the Macross Frontier, by attacking the Vajra he got into the latest VF-25.


Macross F: Macross Frontier
The Super Galactic love story that intersects love with the fates of friendship and planets.
It's 2059.  It is a half-century after the First Interstellar War.  Earth's mankind, who were on the verge of destruction in an interstellar war with formerly giant aliens, have started on journeys to every quarter of the galaxy searching for new worlds, with the main objective of continuing the species.  "Macross Frontier", counted as the 25th Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet, has sailed into the vicinity of the center of the galaxy.  In the space fleet live more than 10 million people around a residential ship that is integrated with a combat ship and has an environment produced by the population that isn't changed whatsoever from that of Earth.  The "Macross Galaxy", the 21st fleet, is in the midst of sailing in the neighbourhood.  One day, the "Galactic Fairy" Sheryl Nome, a top singer originating in that "Macross Galaxy", visited the "Macross Frontier" on a concert tour.  Ranka Lee, a girl in Frontier who admires Sheryl, meets pilot cadet Saotome Aruto by chance while en route to Sheryl's concert.  And then, Sheryl's concert started...

VF-25F Messiah
Even though it was originally Henri Gilliam's airframe, who was the attacker in S.M.S., Aruto inherited it after Gilliam's death in action.  The secondhand item, which is the standard type of VF-25, reflects the pilot's ability the most.  It's speciality is the coordinated attack of such things as the gun pod gun, laser machine-gun and missile bombardments during high mobility.  The airframe colour is a white base, with red x black marking lines.
