One of the classic fighters that really does bring back memories from the original SDF Macross. Zero is the currently the best and prettiest series yet in my opinion.

Manufacturer ~ Shinnakasu

External 55 mm Howard GU-11 gunpod with 200 rounds firing 1200 rounds per minute, mounted under central fuselage.
Mauler RÖV-20 anti-aircraft laser cannon (one in VF-1A, two in VF-1J and VF-1D, four in VF-1S) firing 6000 pulses per minute, mounted on head turret under the nose.

Four pivoting hardpoints under the wings.
Up to 12 AMM-1 multipurpose missiles (three on each hardpoint), 6 RMS-1 anti-ship reaction missiles (two on each outbound pylons and one on each inbound pylon), 12 Mk-82 conventional bombs (three on each hardpoint) and four UMM-7 micro missile pods carrying 15 Bifors HMM-01 micromissiles; or a combination of any of these.

A nice model with standard armaments that meet between the VF-1A and VF-1S in terms of laser cannon heads. Must buy for True SDF fans.
