Credit for the Super Shinden goes to XzAceOfSpadeszX.

Once you finish the game on WingKing it unlocks a Super Shinden. When you are selecting your plane go to the Shinden and press Y instead of A. I finished the game with all S ratings on my first try with 8 fighters left over.

You get an extra fighter at every 500,000 plus there are 2-3 1 Up tokens to be found. The point of that being is that you don't have to worry about dieing, to a certain degree. On each boss use your missles and then your bombs and then just pound away on their center spot with your normal rounds. If you die, use your missles and your bombs again first.

For the final boss you really want to die a few times so you have more bombs and missles. Assuming you have 3 fighters left when you get to him then don't worry about dodging anything, just put the boots to 'em.

Duing the game, I always picked up health to keep more fighters in reserve. If I had full health then I picked up bombs. If you pick up bombs and don't worry about your health and then die, you lose all of your bombs anyhow.
