HS-AZ1 Tâvygoavyma (Torpedo)

The Tâvygoavyma is a Torpedo weapon system that the Poku Saeruo Degonjo has put back into service in 754 CY YE 35. It is launched by the Myora'ate Tâvygoavyma (Torpedo Launcher).

About the Tâvygoa

The HS-Z1 is an updated version of a design that was used before the loss of Otâgolisoy (Birth world). It is a self-guided projectile that can be redirected after launch. It is coated in electro-magnetic absorbent material to make its detection more difficult. The Tâvygoavyma only fires its engines for course changes or velocity adjustments.

HS-Z1 Series


The Clan used Tâvygoavyma before the Norka (The Exodus). The use of missiles fell from usage shortly after arriving here. Because resources were critical so the only weaponry used were energy ones, because they did not destroy valuable materials. Work on the redesign that became the HS-Z1 began after the Poku (Clan) entered an alliance with the Yamatai Star Empire. The Tâvygoavyma is intended to be used only on larger ships and installations.


The Tâvygoavyma is a slightly flattened cylinder with rounded ends. It is colored with standard clan paint. It has four plasma drives mounted on the aft, and there are four fins on the front which are antenna for updates. The front of the Tâvygoavyma is a darkened area which contains the sensors.
