Geshrinari Shipyards Logo A TC Company

The Ge-T1-2a is an upgrade to the venerable Ge-T1-1A - Transatmospheric Shuttle. It became available in YE 33

Hikiuma Shuttle

About the Hikiuma

Hikiuma is available as either a new craft or a refit to an existing Ge-T1-1A - Transatmospheric Shuttle. They kept the overall appearance of the shuttle but replaced the original nacelles with more streamlined ones and upgraded the propulsion and other systems. Hikiuma means draft horse in Yamataian.


After years of selling the reliable Ge-T1-1A - Transatmospheric Shuttle Geshrinari Shipyards decided it was time to update the design. The effort consisted mostly of upgrading the various systems, to improve the performance of the shuttle.


The Hikiuma comes with a white hull, the new nacelles are mounted onto the original winglets on either side. There are the dorsal and ventral docking hatches, and a hatch on the port side. When the CDD are active they glow with a rainbow like effect. When they are inactive they appear dark red.
