Plans for Reactive Armor for the VF-0D?

Recommended Posts

Is there any indication of plans for a Reactive Armor for the VF-0D?

Unlike the VF-1D which seemed to be very uncommon Valkyrie, the VF-0D is produced in similar numbers to the VF-0A.

While the VF-0A should have little problem using the same gear as the VF-0S, which share the same body, the main issue with the VF-0D would be the wings, which fold in a very different way from the VF-0A/S.

Then there's also the issue of the two-seater VF-0A (VF-0B?) and single-seater VF-01D (VF-0C?): The VF-0B could require a larger chest armor section, which could be usable by the VF-0D, and the VF-0C could use the same chest armor as the VF-0A/S.

Either way, if at some point there do were to plans mass produce a Valkyrie based on the VF-0D, plans for a reactive could have been around as well.

I don't think so, the reactive armor was more of a one off test than an upgrade for all VF-0 units. Strapping a ghost unit to the back of the VF-0 was far more effective and could be used with the VF-0D.

I saw an image showing a variant of the Reactive Armor which had additional missile launchers mounted on the legs. Also, saw a model kit with two spare gunpods mounted on the left shield. Are these supposed to be different configurations of Roy's unit or different test units?

On the other hand, could there be an VF-0S that has the body frame of a VF-0C/D?

All the VF-0's have the same body frame - they only differ in wings, tail fins and head units. The D variant has slightly different lower legs to allow the delta wings to rest flush up against it.
