I liked the rotating ship you pilot in Delta

Radiant Silverguns ship (called Radiant Silvergun). Looks awesome, has an amazing array of weaponry to choose from which can be leveled up to an insanely destructive level and also has a sword stashed away to negate and absorb certain bullets which can then be turned against the opposition in dramatic style. The ship would be unstopable if the game wasn't so damned hard!

The R9, the simplicity and effectiness of the design is timeless. It's a ship that can be adapted and built on like a Harrier Jump Jet or an F14. This adaptability can be seen in R-Type 3, Delta, and Final.

The souped-up version of your ship in Thunder Force IV, when the claw weapon gets powered up and they drop an extra bit in the top.

The Silvergun, ironically from Radiant Silvergun, is a fantastic designed ship. Very appealing lines and general unique style make this my favourite.
Other kick ass ships would include Rynex from Thunder Force 4, Raiden MkII from Raiden 2 and beyond, and of course, player one in Ikaruga.

That's not ironic, that's just eponymous.

'And isn't it eponymous - doncha think?

It's like raaaaaaa-hee-aaaaaaainn,

in a game called It's Raining.'

R9, because it always felt so fluid, any mistake was very much your own. And if you are very careful you can touch scenery with it, heck on some levels its the only way thru!

Vic Viper by a mile. Simple, elegant and has its own personality. I'd love one of those models. The R-Type ship comes close mind. And an X-Wing.

I'd also choose the wasp from Apidya but that's not a space craft is it? That's just silly.

Probably the ship from Xenon 2: Megablast, that had some awesome (if pricey) power-ups!

I love it when you get the ship from 'Mag Max' fully powered up and it becomes a giant striding robot of death :D

Connecting all 3 parts of the spaceship together in 'Mooncresta' always makes me smile too :)
