  1. What is the meaning of "Zeak"? I have never heard of this name before anywhere. And that reminds me: if VF-19ACTIVE does not have "改" in its sub-model name, then are we to infer that there is an entire line of Nothung units?
  2. Can a mod adjust this thread's title to properly render "Walküre" with an umlaut? Or is that not possible on this board's software?

    Do we know for certain if the SV-52 Oryol is named for Oryol the city / Oryol Oblast? I would guess as much, but Macross the Ride didn't exactly have a high romanization budget. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oryol

    What is the naming intent behind the Fz-109 エルガーゾルン / Erugāzorun (Elgersorn? Elgerzorn?) and the Az-130 パンツァーゾルン / Pantsāzorun (Panzersorn? Panzerzorn?)? Are these some kind of German portmanteau? Are we to assume that the Megaroad-13 / Varauta colony included many humans of German descent?

    Ooo. Maybe they’ll be radical and include a potential same-sex pairing in the new series’s main love triangle.

    Alright, thanks for clarifying that!

    http://www.macross2.net/m3/macrossf/vf-27.htm When MMM, courtesy of Macross Chronicle?, says that Galaxy never informed the N.U.N.G. of the VF-27 reaching production and deployment, is that true of the TV telling of Frontier or the movie telling?

    What's the real-world naming intent behind the YF-29 Durandal? For a fighter that basically supplanted the VF-25 Messiah as the designated rival to the VF-27 Lucifer, I don't see how "Durandal" is supposed to thematically oppose "Lucifer". Relatedly, why is YF-29B Perceval rendered in Japanese as パーツィバル / Pātsibaru? Where does that pronunciation come from?

    Wow, so the invasion of the Vajra homeworld, as depicted in Sayonara no Tsubasa, was the proving debut for the YF-29, eh?

    Was Alto’s YF-29 the first one to be built?

    Holy smokes the NUNS sponsored the development of a biplane?

    I thought Kawamori was busy with a second project while Delta was running. Isn’t there some common idea that a lot of people like Plus as a whole more than 7 because Kawamori has more direct involvement in Plus?
