The gunpods have been modificated to fight against th Vajra.It is a multipurpose fighter as it serves as an attack fighter, a bomber or a recon plane as well as a command machine for unmanned planes. This fighter can be customized depending on the pilot and the mission that is going to be carried out.
It is reinforced by an EX gear, a reinforced exosqueleton and a new inertia capacitor which allows it to exceed the limits of manned flights and reduces the burden on the pilot, and as 2040 the pilot isn't a burden anymore for the fighter to reach its true potential which has been achieved with the latest technology in VF's. The VF-25 unlike the VF-1 can transform with the armor on while the other one only had it on, in battleroid mode.
