VF-1S Block 1 Valkyrie Veritech in Battloid mode.
The VF-1S’s most distinctive feature of course was its head, which mounted four Mauser RoV-20 lasers. These early laser had a relatively week output, but were enough for the anti-missile role for which they were designed.
These utility arms were unique to the first two production blocks of VF-1s. Though all Valkyries had provisions for their installation, they were rarely fitted from Block 3 onward.
VF-1S Block 5 Valkyrie Veritech in Battloid mode.
This VF-1S Block 9 was the Veritech used during production of the hit movie “Do You Remember Love”. It was painted to portray the Valkyrie piloted by Commander Roy Fokker during the First Robotech War.
