- Seeing the need for better protection of military grade equipment transports, the United Space Command submitted a requisition to ship design teams for a heavily armoured transporter with capacity for high-volume freight. Following trials of multiple submissions, the Mars-designed Hayabusa was the model deemed most suited to the USC's needs. Multiple layers of armour plating on top of a triple-hull, paired with military-grade power systems and finely tuned engines enable this ship to ferry highly sensitive equipment through anything the universe can throw at it. The designers boast that it could easily run through an AGI blockade while fully laden with minimal damage.
