The R-DP series was an attempt to create a close combat R-craft capable of piercing through thick enemy armor. Unfortunately, it took a few models to get the system right as it didn't make it far into production. The Wave Cannon energy unit was removed and replaced with a bunker busting, explosive-tipped metal spike, launched forward with alarming speed. However, the very short range of the weapon made the craft unfavorable for pilots, and the low demand returned this model to the drawing board. On the plus side, though, it did offer pilots with a large selection of missiles...which were sorely needed, given it's relative lack of ranged attack.


[Pile Bunker Unit]

Equipped with an ultra-hard metallic spike. Built for close combat, it was ineffective in the Bydo War(s) and was not mass-produced. The shields on either side of the fighter prevent scraps of pulverized enemies from entering the engine air intakes, but they serve no defensive purpose.


Unlocking the R-9DP requires 120 minutes of general flight time after unlocking the R-9DV Tears Shower.



Bit Device

This craft is named Hanrasan in the Korean version of the game.
