Hi Guys! I just took a moment to try out the battleship, and have nailed down all the controls for you guys:
UP/DOWN: Change altitude. UP = higher, DOWN = lower.
LEFT/RIGHT: Change direction.
BOOST: Throttle up. At a certain speed, you will start using your boost energy; once you run out, you will be unable to turn or change elevation until the energy bar refills completely!
MAIN WEAPON: Throttle down. This does not fire guns - if you find yourself constantly flying backwards, there's your problem!
SUB-WEAPON: Main Cannon. It will automatically track a targeted enemy, but its shots do not home. Good when a nearby enemy has just set down on the ground, or picking stragglers off of your hull.
GUARD: Close-In Weapon Systems - the little machine guns. This one's on the central hull. Doesn't actually drain the Weapon Meter when used by itself, so it's good for laying down suppressing fire.
SPECIAL WEAPON 1: Close-In Weapon Systems - these ones are on the sides. Use it to peel off any hitchhikers.
SPECIAL WEAPON 2: Close-In Weapon Systems - mounted on the bottom. Open up with all three and you'll officially have "Enuff Dakka"!
SPECIAL WEAPON 3: Missile Swarm. A good all-around weapon, especially against enemies on the ground.
Well, that's about all. Have fun with it!
edited for up=not down, down=not up
edit2: added guard's CIWS
