  • Description and History

    The massive Mobile Fortress Vajra is designated "Bishop" and like all vajra vessels, the craft is a living spaceborne organism. This enormous ship - a class of some 10-20 kilometers in length - servres as a nest for the Vajra Semi-Queen. These mobile fortress nests are defended by multiple layers of bio-energy conversion armour and armed with bio-heavy quantum beam guns, possessing a fighting strength equal to that of several 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.
