Even though enhancements were made to create the R-9B2 Stayer to be the ultimate long-range unit, the Space Corps eventually found a need to increase the power of their mid-range units. Thus, they scaled back on the long-range boosters and overhauled the basic R-9B. The result, this craft, was superior in nearly every way, with a new Force, Wave Cannon, and added Bit options.
[Enhanced Mid-distance Cruise Unit]
Strengthened with an enhanced Defensive Force, but the operational range is slighty shorter.
- 2 x Round Bit
- 2 x Shadow Bit
- 2 x Shield Bit

R-9B3 Sleipnir -Bomber-
Fast long-range bomber with powerful missiles, though it lacks close-range weapons like the Vulcan gun. Also, no Wave Cannon.
