19XX: The War Against Destiny is a vertical shooting game released by Capcom in late 1995, and copyrighted in 1996, on their CPS2 hardware. It is the fifth game in the 19XX series, and the last to be developed by Capcom. Unlike previous games in the series, 19XX takes place in a fictional war.

Story

During a fictional war set in the 20th century, a lone pilot tries to defeat an entire army/evil organization from starting another World War, which soon escalates to a nuclear apocalypse.

Planes

There are three planes that the player may select from, each with their own strengths/weaknesses and special weapon:[1]

  • Lightning: A well-balanced plane. Medium Power, Medium Speed, Strong Homing. Its special weapon is the "Vulcan."
  • Mosquito: A slow but powerful plane. Strong Power, Weak Speed, Weak Homing. Its special weapon is the "Missiles."
  • Shinden: A fast but weak plane. Weak Power, Strong Speed, Medium-weak Homing. Its special weapon is the green "Laser."
