    Description and History

    The huge Heavy Battleship is a breed of vajra that roughly corresponds to a flagship-class vessel. This deep purple-colored vajra is roughly 3.5 to 4 kilometers long and is protected by innumerable Mobile Soldier Vajra and Heavy Soldier Vajra swarming within the interior spaces and surrounding airspace. The ship is a deadly combat vessel carrying 3-barrel heavy quantum beam gun turrets near the stern that have an offensive power rivalling a Macross Cannon. The vajra also has a large number of heavy beam gun turrets scattered around the hull and a powerful defensive fold barrier able to withstand a direct hit from a Macross Cannon. The interior of the creature is home to many fold quartz "towers" which are used to power its weapons and barriers. A vajra space combat group typically includes 10-20 Heavy Battleship Vajra.

    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.
