Scanlation: has 2009, February, MACROSS BEGINS. (My impression is that it is not talking about a new series. The *real* Macross starts? Speaking of which, the events of Macross 0 take place this month (2008.09). Which is perhaps why the next episode of Macross F is called "True Begin(ning)"?)

- the first, with the English "Separate from..." (Ranka Lee and Brera having left Aruto).
- the second, "3 ways, 3 futures".

Colour picts of the 1/72 fully transformable VF-25 Messiah, Aruto
A main fighter that the NUNS could use - for the anti-Vajra extermination battle, a custom machine that's been throughly tuned up from the previous encounters with Vajra. Aruto's fighter has the same colours as his favourite aircraft up until now: the VF-25 Messiah.
The latest mecha for the NUNS appears on the scene
The aircraft spurred on by Aruto and Luca, who transfered into the NUNS. They have been given new aircraft - an anti-Vajra use VF-171 based on the old model.
The flagship of the Frontier Fleet, a Battle Class Variable Stealth Attack Space Carrier, with the greatest firepower in the fleet. It is the core of the NUNS [in the Frontier Fleet].
