This Force is a near-duplicate of the Standard Force C, though the lasers share identical names, the effects are different. The Blue laser is an improvement upon the Green crystal from Super R-Type.

It allows the pilot to use the following beams with the appropriate Laser Crystal:

  • Red: Shotgun Laser: Fires a large shell forward that quickly bursts into four diagonal fragments.
    • Level 3: The shell explodes into eight fragments.
  • Blue: Search Laser L45: Fire a burst of four pellets ahead that can make minute adjustments to hit approaching enemies.
    • Level 3: The Force now fires eight shots at once.
  • Yellow: Anti-ground Laser: Fires two beams above and below the craft that will travel along surfaces.
    • Level 3: The beam is longer.

When detached:

  • Level 1: The Force has a single forward-firing shot.
  • Level 2: The Force fires in two 45 degree angle shots.
  • Level 3: The Force fires in four directions; one above and below, and two at 30 degree angles.
