 The VF-38 Adriel is a limited production, high performance variable fighter developed as a replacement for the VF-23 and VF-26, and as a supplement to the VF-29P Percival in the special forces role. It is a derivative of the VF-33 Evolution. It was built as a partnership between L.A.I and Grunder Industries.

Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Capable of combat performance that exceeds the standard VF-171 Nightmare Plus and VF-37 Sylph II, the added advantage of pilots with either cybernetic or ESPER characterictics or a dedicated combat A.I allows the VF-38 to achieve high performance beyond what a flesh-and-blood body can withstand. Beyond these noteworthy capabilities, the VF-38 features an unusual four-engine design that mounts two, high mobility boosters upon the main wings (the boosters also house two internal micro-missile launchers each). A single FF-3011C/II engine on the VF-38 produces slightly inferior thrust to that of the VF-37 FF-3001C engine, but the total of four engines in the VF-38 can produce overall thrust that exceeds the VF-37. Firepower is comparable to a VF-37 Sylph with Super Parts. Despite all these remarkable advantages, the VF-38 unfortunately suffers from a low air frame versatility that has made the variable fighter unsuitable for mass production.
