The new show celebrates the 25th anniversary of the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross TV series (1982–1983), and is chronologically subsequent to Macross 7 (1994–1996). This third TV series introduces Earth's latest main variable fighter, the VF-25 Messiah and a new ship called the Macross Frontier.
Introduced in 2059, the VF-25 Messiah is a cutting-edge variable fighter utilized by the New United Nations Spacy. Independently developed by Shinsei Industries, Macross Frontier Arsenal Original Development, and the LAI Corporation, it stems from the YF-24 Evolution prototype, aiming to surpass the VF-171 Nightmare Plus, the existing primary variable fighter. Distinguishing itself from its predecessors, the VF-25 features the Ex-Gear cockpit system, enabling pilots to endure high G-forces and facilitating wired or wireless remote control for the aircraft.
Equipped with a variety of offensive weaponry such as a gatling gun, beam cannons, laser guns in the head unit, and a close-combat knife in the shield, the VF-25 Messiah is a versatile variable fighter designed for multipurpose missions. Its adaptability allows customization based on the pilot's preferences and mission requirements. Through the exchange of multipurpose modules, the VF-25 can function as a fighter, attack craft, fighter-bomber, reconnaissance craft, and command craft for unmanned combat aerial vehicles.
