The Red Pod is a Bit Device first seen in Image Fight, an Irem game released in 1988, and absent until R-Type Final.


R-Type Final

Red Pod


By using the Cyber Connector interface device, the pilot’s will is transmitted directly to the Bit, and missile direction can be controlled.


The Red Pod fires in the direction opposite of the pilot's flight path. Skilled pilots can make minute adjustments to attack hard-to-hit enemies.
