The Kyoto (originally called the Capital-class Infantry Carrier Ship, named after the battle of Ayenee Capital City of the Chaos/Hive/Nerima war), was designed to meet the needs of the Grand Star Army's 20,000-soldier infantry regiments. Each ship can carry and provide long-term support to a Star Army Infantry Battalion of 5,000 soldiers. The Capital ship had been in the design stages for some time, but was not actually finalized under after the creation of the Horizon-class Colony Ship. Rather than see the Infantry Regiments placed on a single, vulnerable ship, KFY engineers quickly finished the Capital, using the latest advances in technology that had been added to the ISFC.
Year introduced: YE 24
All one hundred ships of the first two production runs were already issued out to units and were in use by the time the Lamia Power Armor came out, and not all 1b variants had them. The 1c variant, introduced throughout the Star Army in YE 25, replaced both 1a and 1b variants. Key improvements include additional mecha. The CICS was the last KFY-built ship design to be upgraded to a PANTHEON-type IES by Kessaku Systems. The IES was added in the 1c upgrade.
