Kagai-Class Assault Ship

The Ge-C2-1a Assault Ship is Geshrinari Shipyards ship designed to carry and deploy a Star Army of Yamatai Star Army Century; it became available in YE 34.

About the Ge-C2

The Ge-C2 is an Assault ship designed by Geshrinari Shipyards and submitted for a contract with the Star Army of Yamatai. The Kagai is the same size as the Urufu-Class Light Cruiser which was designed for strike mission. The Kagai is capable of carrying a Star Army Century and all its support equipment.

The Ge-C2 is also equipped with a squadron of fighters to provide air support for the Star Army Century while deploying.

Kagai-Class Above


After the success of the Ge-C1, the company when it heard that the Star Army of Yamatai was looking for a ship capable of deploying larger numbers of troops, looked to their earlier design and investigated how they could modify it to meet the new specifications. The upper section was relatively unchanged except for modifications to the weapons to make it more appropriate for planetary assault, and the lower decks were extensively modified. The prototype class ship keel was laid in third quarter YE 34.

The Urufu completed its 5-year review early in YE 37 and was reauthorized until at least YE 43 and that authorization also extends to the Kagai.


The upper hull of the Kagai-Class hull is a tapered diamond shape. It is painted Star Army Blue and features the Star Army Hinomaru and registration on the top. It has a pair of wings along the forward hull to improve atmospheric performance. At the base of the wings the two torpedo tubes can be seen. Along the aft there are four Aether Plasma Drives painted gray which propel the ship for STL travel. The non-retractable weapons are visible. The underside features a large flattened cylinder which provides the added space for the larger load. On either side of it are two field deployment modules. These have multiple hatches which the Infantry can unload their equipment.

  • Length: 110 m
  • Height: 10 m
  • Width: 20 m


The usage of the bays is the same regardless of which side they are on.

Emergency Release

Explosive bolts that attach the Pods can be used to detach them from the Kagai once they are placed on the ground. This allows them to serve as bunkers for the unit while establishing their base of operation. However this means a lengthy time on the ground to reattach them.
