Named after the Whale Shark, the Rhincodon is a three-story transport aircraft and tanker. Rhincodons were used extensively by Neucom early in 2033. They were first seen transporting military supplies from the Comona Islands to the Petrol Coast, but were intercepted and destroyed by UPEO fighters in the no-fly zone over Expo City. Although passengers are awake and not connected to the plane's interface, the Rhincodon is still piloted by COFFIN. R-501s can be used for long-distance bombing runs, paratrooping, parashooting supplies, refueling, and even commercial transport.
