   -Battloid/Soldier mode: May use all of the pilots own personal combat skills, such as Brawl (or Martial Arts), Brawling Parry, Doge, Melee Combat, Melee Parry, Sneak, Blaster (for GU-11 Gunpod OR other 'aquired' weapons of blaster type), and even Thrown Weapons.

   -Guardian/Gerwalk mode: May use the same skills at half the skill dice, EXCEPT Melee Combat, Melee Parry, Sneak, or Thrown Weapons.  The Guardian mode may attack in hand-to-hand, but only to punch (Brawl) or block an attack (Brawling Parry), as shown above.  While the Guardian may lack much of the abilities of the Jet or Battloid modes, it can hover in place (the Jet CANNOT hover), perform Vertical Take-offs or Landings (VTOL), and skim across the ground at max speed.  While skimming ground level, it may Dodge at full skill dice, and also make use of ground structures for cover to help evade airborne enemies.  While in Guardian mode, the Veritech may also target Walker scale vehicles with no penalty to the dice rolls, Speeder scale as Walker scale, etc, because of the increased stability in this mode.

   Other Equipment:
      Fuel Capacity: With Protoculture, micronized reactors and the science of Robotechnology, it has a useful lifespan of about 12 years, half that with constant use, so it can have a constant burn indefinitely for this period of time.
      Radar: 200 miles/321.80km, can track up to 48 targets.
      Motion Detector/Collison Warning System: Close range 200ft/61m, sounds alarm and red light warns pilot of impending collision and/pr immediate target.
      Radio/Video Communications: wide band and directional, radio/video telecast capabilities.  Range 600 miles/965.4km, or can be boosted indefinately via satellite relays.
      Laser Communications: Long range, directional line-of-sight, 150,000 miles.
      Laser Targeting System: Range 200 miles.
      Combat Computer: Calculates, stores and transmits data onto the cockpit computer screen or Heads Up Display (H.U.D.).  Patches in with targeting computer.
      External Audio Pickup: Sound amplification system, range 300ft/91.5m
      Loudspeaker: External, amplifies the pilot's voice up to 90 decibels.
      External Video Surveillance System: Video camera relays images to a cockpit monitor.  360 degree rotation.  Range 300ft/91.5m.  Telescopic magnification 6x.
      Telescopic Optical Enhancement: Range 1600ft/488m.  Field of Vision 20ft/6.1m.
      Shoulder Headlight/Spotlights (Battloid mode): Range 300ft/91.5m.
      Hydraulic Pilot Chair: In Battloid mode, the head can open forward like a hatch and the pilot's seat can rise out of the veritech 10ft/3.0m and retract back inside.
      Ejector Seat: In emergency, the pilot's seat can instantly eject, in any mode.  In Battloid mode, the head moves aside, and the chair rockets out of the top.
      Utility Arms: Set of small, retractable armshoused in right forearm, to perform delicate work and effect repairs.  Each arm has a Strength/Hull of 5D Speeder scale, and allows use of the Repair skill, as well as other skills that could be applied through use of these arms outside the Veritech, perhaps even Computer Operations/Repair or Demolitions.  GM discretion.
      Self-Destruct: Last ditch effort to prevent capture of the Veritech, usually preceded by ejection.  8D damage, Starfighter scale, 10ft/3m radius.
      Heat/Radiation Shields:  An extra armored plate can cover the transparent canopy of the cockpit to help resist extreme heat and radiation such as atmospheric reentry or other such environments.  When the shield is in place, add +3D to resist elements that would affect the pilot, including direct assaults on the cockpit.  Otherwise, the Veritech uses its normal 5D Hull dice.
      Independent Oxygen and Circulation System.
      Detachable Pilot's Compartment: In situations where the Veritech is damaged, powered pown, or otherwise unable to move or be used, the cockpit can be detached by the pilot or another pilot in a Veritech or other applicable mecha/walker (or simply someone who has the right tools on hand) to save the pilot if the fighter is not salvageable or canot be moved (such as in the middle of heated combat).  The cockpit (entire nose section of the Veritech) can be attached to the lower arm section of another Veritech (like the Gunpod) and carried for rescue.  Will be placed on the underside in Jet mode.

Description:
-Robotech:  The Super Veritech is the state-of-the-art design for veritech Fighters.  In appearance it looks very much like the ordinary VF-1A, J or S models with the usual different head mounts.  However, it is slightly taller (45.9ft/14.1m) more heavily armored, and mounted with twin booster jets which enable it to reach incredible greater speeds, break orbit by itself, and provide greater mobility in space or atmosphere.  Additional weapons include twin missle launchers built into the boosters and forearm missle launchers for use in Guardian/Gerwalk or Battloid/Soldier modes.  Acceleration and mobility have been greatly improved upon for this model.
-Macross:  The differences for this modle in the SDF Macross series are about the same as the normal Veritech Fighter.  Also, there is another version of this fighter, the Advanced Super Veritech/Valkyrie, which replaces one of the Booster Missile Launchers for a Double-Barreled Beam Cannon, and a scratch built model online shows a home made version with two of these beam cannons replacing the booster launchers completely.  Both will be written up in the future.
