Technical and Historical Notes

 

The FF-08WR Wivern is a Federation Forces aerospace fighter designed for use at high altitudes and in low Earth orbit. The Wivern's delta-wing form is ideal for hypersonic flight, and because it resembles the waverider form of the Zeta plus series this fighter is often used as a trainer aircraft for transformable mobile suit pilots. The Wivern is powered by hybrid engines that can switch from turbofan to rocket mode at high altitudes. Because these engines consume a great deal of fuel in rocket mode, it can be equipped with external fuel tanks. Its movable tail stabilator allows the Wivern to perform AMBAC maneuvering like a mobile suit, and its nose is based on that of the Core Fighter series, further increasing its suitability as a transformable mobile suit trainer.
