Does anyone know the exact hitbox of the Vic Viper T301 ship in the game Gradius V?

Searching the web, I have read that it is the cockpit of the ship, about a 2x2 pixel hitbox.

However, when I was battling the first core ship just a bit past the start of the Stage 1, and I had just finished powering up to Force Field, it looked like when one of the four lasers fired from the ship hit below the center of the ship on the tip of the wing that the force field lost one hit each time one of the lasers hit that section.

Any ideas?

The hitbox is indeed only 2x2 pixel, it's tiny! However, with a forcefield on your hitbox gets MUCH bigger and probably contains all of your ship.

Here's an image for the hitbox without forcefield, of course:

Thank you, that plus the information that the hitbox increases with the force field will me help a lot in trying to learn the game.
