The VF-19  is a Multi-Generation Variable Fighter that entered service with the UCR Military in late 2557. Starting in 2579 UCR began phasing out the VF-19 with new 4th Generation Variable Fighters.

Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit

This fighter is the pride of the UCR Armed Forces for nearly 22 years. Aside from superb flight, strong stealth capabilities and robust combat performance, it has top class acceleration performance and a two-dimensional thrust deflect nozzle which also gives it outstanding maneuverability. Its preemptive strike power, called "first look, first shoot, first kill", is fitting for an aircraft with the name "Excalibur", a venerable master of the skies.
