^ It takes place 8 years after Frontier.
Looking at the display with the three modes, I noticed that the fighter and gerwalk modes have the ordnance container that the YF-30 has but is not deployed or taken out in the battroid mode.
The trailer also shows the ordnance container in battroid mode but its details are obscured by the sun's glare.
The faction with the Drakens gave me a medieval vibe. I wonder if it's a recycled from a concept that Kawamori had when he was involved in an anime project that would eventually become Escaflowne. It was tentatively titled, Air Cavalry Chronicles, and had knights piloting variable fighters armed with swords. The antagonist VFs have Germanic names (some of them became the Varauta VFs from Macross 7).
