VF-1A Block 1 Valkyrie Veritech Fighter in Battloid mode outside the student barracks on Macross Island, circa 2008. This picture is notable, due to the fact that it is widely reported that the VF-1 Valkyrie was restricted to fighter mode while in public areas, prior to the beginning of the First Robotech War.
