Unit Description:
      Given the high rate of casualties and the proportionally dwindling number of pilots, in 2010 the SDF-1 sought new ways to make their fighters more effective. Lacking the time to develop entirely new craft, they instead concentrate on ways to upgrade their existing Valkyries. Following the success of the Armoured Battloid, the Super Valkyrie upgrade involved the attaching of additional engines and missile pods which would function no matter what form the Veritech took. The additional thrust gave it performance abilities above and beyond the Zentraedi Gnerl, and the multitude of missiles allowed it to engage multiple targets for an extended period of time. Unlike the Armoured Valkyrie, the attachments of the highly praised Super variant were almost never jettisoned unless the pilot was forced to enter the Earth's atmosphere, where the bulky additions to the Valkyrie gave it the aerodynamics of a brick.
