Related Matter: VF-1J Armoured Valkyrie
In the Battle Of Saturn's Orbit, a VF-1J (J model) Armoured Valkyrie is confirmed in the SDF-1's direct-defence unit. However, there aren't any other known examples of the J model being operating aside from this, and it is believed that few [J model craft] were deployed.

Caption: The J model Armoured Valkyrie jointly undertook the defence of the SDF-1 with the Destroids.
