History

The Kyodaina Heavy Cruiser is a Q-Ship freighter design made early on by the Yuandong shipyards to combat pirate raiding. While physically large, they use a combination of light and heavy thrusters and even a pair of forward facing engines to make the Kyodaina very agile for it’s size. It also has a unique cargo container docking system that can allow it to quickly load and unload cargo in PACS space, as they have matching systems. These special cargo containers however are different than the ones that tend to be used in SA space as they are meant to facilitate loading cargoes and not holding the cargo from end to end.

The Kyodaina is possibly best known for it’s internal spinal mount heavy railgun that fires into the forward arc of the ship. It is heavy enough to cripple most lighter vessels in one barrage, which is just as well since these ships only carry a dozen rounds of ammo for it. To back this up it mounts 4 heavy railgun turrets and 12 rapid fire railgun turrets.
