This page contains the history of the NH-33 Series Nekovalkyrja.
The design process began around the same time that the NH-32 was started in YE 32. The NH-3x as it was called was also influenced by the shifting role of the NH-29 Series Nekovalkyrja, becoming the primary ship bornetroop and the NH-32 specialized for Infantry. This shift is why the Tennyo is no stronger than the NH-29. With the NMX manufacturing their own NH-29 as soldiers and infiltration personnel, the designers wanted NH-33 easier to identify, starting with a change in the hand structure. Also a number of internal systems were modified, namely the cardiac and respiratory were based on the NH-31 Minkan. The respiratory system was upgraded with the ability to store oxygen, to help improve survivability in situations where a ship's structural integrity was compromised, specialized for space service, and equipped with several security enhancements.
The reason the new NH-33 is called the Tennyo is to distinguish from the NH-32. Tennyo means Celestial Maiden, in Yamataian, and given that the NH-33 is primarily for Shipboard service, the name was considered descriptive of the new role.
The Designers from Star Army Research Administration and Ketsurui Zaibatsu carefully considered the various attributes of the various NH-Series to come up with a homogenous design. As the design work went on into the following year the project was renamed the NH-33. It became available in late YE 33.
Ketsurui Zaibatsu was surprised by the trend of NH-29 Series Nekovalkyrja having younglings. Because of this trend, they decided to give the NH-33 (Tennyo) the freedom of choice regarding having children, without requiring a body transfer.
