Also known as the R-9 Custom, this ship is a small improvement upon the R-9A Arrowhead. This ship is specially designed for sub-space missions. Design emphasis focused on offensive weaponry, and the ship earned the title of 'Monster' for it's armament. The R-9 Custom was built after the first Bydo war, based on tactical data obtained from pilots, and flown in the second Bydo encounter.

The R-9 Custom operates nearly identically to the Arrowhead, except with more firepower options and an additional Wave Cannon.

Description:

This ship was constructed to improve upon the Arrowhead's capabilities. R-Types give this description:

  • Model Name: R-9 Custom "Super Power Spacecraft" Custom Model
  • Length: 13.5m
  • Height: 9.2m
  • Width: 4.2m
  • Weight: 22.0t

The design of this units incorporates data from the first Bydo encounter. It is used in sub-space combat, and is equipped with the powerful Spread Wave Cannon. This weapon has amazing destructive potential, and it is no exaggeration when it is referred to as "The Monster Weapon".

Parts:

  • Spread Wave Cannon: The R-9 Custom ship has been equipped with this large energy capacity weapon, so that it has enough power to destroy the A-level Bydo.
  • Armored Canopy: Different from the ordinary canopy, which provides a wide range of visibility. The armored canopy is equipped with sensor elements that read external data and projects the image on the inside of the canopy.
  • Bit Conductor: Same as the Bit Conductor for the R-9A Arrowhead. The Bit device was not modified at all and there is no improvement in this model.

Armaments:

Bit Device

Missile

Wave Cannon

  • Standard Wave Cannon
  • Diffusion Wave Cannon Prototype: This weapon is available to fire when the Beam meter is flashing. If not activated, the meter will cancel it, giving the pilot the option to use the Standard Wave Cannon, and flash again in a few seconds to signal that the Diffusion shot is ready again.

Cannon: Standard vulcan mk.1

Construction was based on data gathered in the first war with the Bydo. Specially made for combat in sub-space. Loaded with a Diffusion Wave Cannon, and designed with an emphasis on firepower. Sometimes called the “Monster” for its armor-piercing capacity and raw destructive power.

Armaments:

Since R-Type Final sticks to the primary Laser Crystals, the green and gray crystals were reincorporated into the Standard Force K's loadout. The R-9C also loses the Standard Wave Cannon. This is also where the R-9C gained it's name, "War-Head".
