Macross: The Thunderbolt Legacy

The name "Thunderbolt" brings with it a great deal of history. In WWII, the P-47 Thunderbolt was used as an attacker as was the A-10 Thunderbolt II. Both aircraft excelled at destroying hard targets like armored vehicles, earning them the title of "Tank Buster". 

The VF-11, known as the Thunderbolt III continues that tradition in the next century, carrying a gun pod in the same caliber as it's grandfather, the A-10 (30mm). While it's a fighter first, the VF-11 makes a lethal tank killer when attacking ground targets.

-Excerpt, Sky Angels Volume IV, 2060

Hello:
 I have no idea why I didn't see this one before :( .

 The details are amazing, you made the VF-11 to look as a very mobile combatant but not in the super-slim (and totally unfeasible XD ) way like the Valkyries from Macross Frontier onwards are. This one really looks tough and it surely excels in it's roles :) .

Hello:
 The VF-11 is a favourite of mine aswell, it's first appearance in Macross Plus was amazing :iconblamblamplz: :) . I just wish they were made them worthy in Macross7 though.
