The Wise Man was a dedicated effort to improve the Standard Wave Cannon XX and implement it on a ship-wide scale. It uses an integration system akin to the R-13A Cerberus, only it's far more draining on the pilots. Aside from Wave Cannon research, nothing has changed from its predecessor.

As a whole, the R-9W series were mainly prototypes for different Wave Cannon models. Omitting the Wave Cannon, and with the addition of the R-9WZ Disaster Report's Shield Bit conductor, all of the R-9W series ships have the same offensive loadout.


[Magnetic Wave Cannon Test]

The R-9W series was specially created to test the viability of the Magnetic Wave Cannon. Demands a lot mentally from its pilots. The test tube-like canopy is made to snap in and out easily. When changing pilots, the whole canopy section must often be removed as well. Due to extreme exhaustion, the pilots cannot get out of the fighter on their own and must be pulled out.


Logging 15 minutes of general flight time after obtaining the R-9Sk Principalities will unlock this craft.
