The deluxe cabinet is a large simulator. The player sits in a seat in front of the monitor and both tilt 45 degrees to the left or the right depending upon the fight path.

The Galaxy Force cabinet was much more impressive. The Galaxy Force II machine is somewhat simpler.

Technical

The are additional PCBs for the two motors and position switches. The game is mechanical and contains no hydraulics. Two simple motors with a belt control the turn and tilt of the machine. The motor driver circuit contains several hard-to-find MOSFETs.

Fixes

The stop switches and pots of the deluxe cab do break. These are easy to fix, but when they are not functioning, gameplay is still possible, but without movement. Also the motor PCB´s do fail and are easy to fix as long as you can find the parts. Some original spare parts may still be available from Deith Leisure (UK).
