|Primary User||Space Corps|
The Space Corps needed another mainstream fighter to fill the ranks. Though other R-craft were more than capable of fulfilling most missions, only a few models were mass-produced. The R-9S Strike Bomber was mass-produced model not unlike the R-9A Arrowhead and R-9C, meant to be a mainstay of the Space Corps' forces. This ship was one of the mass-produced models, but the Wave Cannon upgrade and its technological contribution overshadowed its own usage in the Bydo missions. Though it wasn't as popular as the previous models, it's creation led to the powerful R-90 Ragnarok.
[Enhanced Mass Production Model]
Built after a second re-evaluation of the R-9C. Mass-produced, but it did not surpass the R-9K in number of units. The birth of the R-9S led to the development of other superior models. Use of a stronger Wave Cannon was made possible by a return to the Standard Force.
