  • "Vault Hunters sighted! OPEN FIRE!" (Mission only)
  • "I've had it up to here with you Vault Hunters."
  • "We fight until the last of us falls!" (Mission only)
  • "Yeah, DIE, DIE, DIE."
  • "Don't let up!"
  • "Eat lasery death"
  • "Special delivery."
  • "Are you ready for a missile massacre?"
  • "I'm retreating -- cover fire, NOW!"
  • "Bombs away!"
  • "Charlie, Foxtrot, I'm outta here cover me."
  • "I've had about enough -- you guys pound on 'em for a while!"
  • "To the last!"
  • "Stop your belly-aching and love the bomb!"

  • RK5 is a re-spawning boss after the mission is completed and has an increased chance to drop the legendary The Sham shield and the HellFire submachine gun.
  • RK5's critical hit locations are its missile pods, cockpit, and the engine.


  • "Raum-Kampfjet" means "space combat jet [aircraft]" in German.
  • A ship similar to the RK5 appears first during a cutscene in Eye to Eye. It deploys Colonel Zarpedon's Mech to the arena and drops a couple of Lost Legion Soldiers before it leaves.
  • Two Dahl crafts sharing RK5's model appear in The Dawn of New Pandora. They do not attack and are ranked 10 levels above the character, but can be shot down. They have lower health than an equal-level RK5.
  • Crashed RK5s can be seen where Lt. Bolson and Lt. Angvar can be encountered.
  • Multiple copies of RK5 can be seen at Outfall Pumping Station. They are static and only serve as game scenery.
