The competition between General Galaxy and Shinsei Industry is meant as a parallel to the real-life competition that was held between Lockheed and Northrop to determine the newest tactical air fighter, the YF-22 or YF-23. The YF-19 valkyrie in macross plus retains several design features of earlier craft, as did the real YF-22, while being cutting-edge. The YF-21 valkyrie's design was heavily influenced by the real YF-23, and both share the stigma of being grand departures from what is considered "standard" aeronautical design in both real and animated worlds.

what can i say ?this has to be one of my all time favourtie mangas movies from the soundtrack to the animation to the story to the dogfights this film had me hooked .It follows the story of a young maverick test pilot and his rivalry against another rival test pilot and former childhood friend(they both also like the same girl who now voices the famous popstar sharon apple) when they all meet again add cool visuals transforming mecha into the mix and you get the cool anime that is macross plus.It reminded me a little of topgun .I first saw this film when i was 8 years old I'm 17 now and it still stands up against the likes of todays animation standards in fact they just don't make em like they use to.i bought the whole set o DVD as soon as i found it and its well worth it i recommend this to anyone who likes manga 8 out of 10!
