The R-90 Ragnarok is the only ship available, and is more than up to the task. It can equip 3 different Force units (but only one at a time, which is chosen when the mission begins), use the Round Bit and the standard array of Missiles, and accepts Speed Ups. Like all other R-craft, it comes equipped with a Vulcan Cannon. Most of it's power, though, comes from it's versatile Wave Cannon. The R-90 is capable of switching between the Mega Wave Cannon and the Hyper Wave, which induces a Heat mode after use (preventing further Wave Cannon attacks) as the ship cools down the system. While firing the Hyper Wave, any Bit Devices possessed fly quick orbits around the ship for defense. Switching the Wave Cannon from Mega to Hyper in the middle of a charge will cancel the current charge; this is one of the few exceptions to the normal rule that a Wave Cannon cannot be discharged except by firing it. Because of these features, the R-90 is one of the most powerful R crafts in the series

Classified as a "Hyperdrive System Fighter", the R-90 is based on the R-9S frame, but with improved performance and firepower. It's frame is just strong enough to stabilize the firing of a Hyper Wave Cannon.

Description:

[Hyperdrive System Fighter]

Has just enough stability to use its rapid-fire Wave Cannon. Based on the R-9S frame, but with performance and firepower improved. A rapid-fire Wave Cannon is on every designer’s wish list, but this was the only model to make that wish come true.

Requirements:

Pilots need to log 30 minutes of flight time with the R-9S Strike Bomber to earn this craft. The R-90 has changed in this mission as it loses the ability to select multiple Forces and only has the Hyper Wave Cannon.

Armaments:

Trivia

In Norse Mythology, Ragnarok means "Final Destiny of the Gods", and stands for the final battle between the Norse gods and their frost giant foes, and the major events that led to that final battle. The Ragnarok's mission was to wipe out the Bydo once it for all, and it was completed, until 500(Import version)/20(Japanese version) years later.
