  • Description and History

    Like the other ship breeds of the Vajra, the Carrier Vajra is a large spaceborne organism bred to carry other vajra over long distances. The Knight Class is a warship but also a carrier that can utilize a super-long range bio-fold organ cluster capable of navigating through Fold Faults. When in battle the Carrier Vajra opens its mid-section like a mouth and exposes a Macross-grade main gun within.

    NOTE: The spacecraft of the Vajra civilization are a special breed of vajra organism. Although common vajra can easily travel through the void of outer-space, those with fold capability can only travel short distances. Therefore, the vajra breed much larger organisms with far more powerful fold quartz "towers" (fold quartz core/reactor?) to achieve long-distance space folds that allow free navigation over vast interstellar distances.
