X-Project Player Ships
The X-Project was designed by Professor Hagan, prior to his disappearance, and built by EDF in an underground hangar on the Moon, under the supervision of Dr Benn. It was designed to maintain peace in Earth's Solar System and consists of the X-Bomber and three fighters that transform and combine to form the Dai-X.
You can fly X-Bomber, the Dai-X or any of the three Dai-X fighters at any time.
Further ships are available for you to use. These can be selected from the game's Start menu.
X-Bomber is a 260-metre-long prototype space battleship, launched unfinished in 2999. It is a fast and powerful carrier-ship for the three Dai-X Fighters, transporting them over long distances and re-arming them after missions.
Its shields can withstand a good deal of weapons fire. A quantum reactor powers a devastating array of energy weapons.
X-Bomber is the toughest and best-armed ship in the game, making it good for new players. However, it is not especially agile.

Press Select 1 and 2 (Shift and Ctrl, by default) to cycle forwards and backwards, respectively, through X-Bomber's primary weapons:
1 x augmentative X-Impulse system echo (2*10*50)+(100*2); ?>, echo (2*5*3*50)+(100*2); ?> (Full), echo (3.25*5*9*50)+(3.25*5*50); ?> (Super)

X-Bomber carries three advanced astrofighters:
When flying X-Bomber, press and hold Select 1 (default Shift) to launch the Dai-X Fighters. X-Bomber flies off-screen, allowing you to attack the enemy using the fighters.
The two unselected fighters act as your wingmen; flying in formation and attacking the enemy. They cannot be harmed by the enemy, do not consume your power-ups and repair themselves slowly for later use.
If a fighter is destroyed, the game is not over. The remaining fighters return to X-Bomber automatically and you can continue to fight using X-Bomber.
Each Dai-X Fighter has the following primary weapons plus its own special weapon:
BrainCom - 4 x High-explosive cluster bombs: echo floor(2*8*40); ?>
MainBody - 2 x High-energy beam cannons: echo floor((4*50)*2); ?>
LegTrax - 1 x Graviton blaster:
The three Dai-X Fighters transform and combine to form the Dai-X; a 70-metre-tall robot that can fly and operate in space or within a planet's atmosphere.
The Dai-X is well-balanced. It is equipped with a range of powerful weapons, is relatively agile and can withstand a substantial amount of damage.
To assemble Dai-X, launch the Dai-X Fighters by pressing [Tab]. Press [Tab] again to start the docking sequence then move your fighter to the middle of the screen to dock with the othero.
To return to X-Bomber, press [Tab] once more. The Dai-X Fighters detach from eachother, the X-Bomber flies onto the screen and the three fighters dock with it.
