Yugumo Fleetworks

The Yugumo Corporation developed its Yugumo Fleetworks brand and shipyard division during YE 42, but the official branding of their designs did not start until YE 43.

History and Background

The Yugumo Fleetworks brand uses the main company logo and refers to their line of starships, small craft, space stations, and their respective subsystem designs. Beyond the branding, Yugumo Fleetworks also applies to the actual production division that produces the branded products. The Yugumo Corporation's corporate lineage started with Motoyoshi Fleet Yards in YE 29 and then Motoyoshi Hanei Kaisha in YE 34. Shipbuilding is a passion of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, over the years she has contributed several designs used by the Star Army of Yamatai; like the Chiharu-class Flagship “D” refit, the Takumi-Class Expeditionary Command Cruiser, the Ascendancy-class Flagship and the Hummingbird-class Colony Ship.

The reason the branding and division were not made immediately when the company was founded in YE 41, is because Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko demanded that the company have a direction for their design ethos, a unique aesthetic, and an understanding of the local market before the brand would be launched. In YE 42, development finally headed in a satisfactory direction with the designs of the Misha-Class Explorer, Asuga-Class Tug and Shuryoku-Class Super Freighter, in response Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko authorized the creation of Yugumo Fleetworks.The full brand and division were then activated in early YE 43.

Design Ethos

Misha-Class Explorer 1A The majority of Yugumo Corporation upper management is active-duty or retired Star Army of Yamatai personnel. So their ideas of what qualified as a powerful example of Yamataian design mostly revolved around Star Army Starship Classes. Motoyoshi Fleet Yards designs tended to be bulky and industrial which was a turn off for Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko from the beginning, she had no desire to bring back the YE 30s look to anything the new corporation built.

The company's first shipbuilding project came in YE 42, it revolved around the idea of using salvage from the Ayana-Class Escort which they had an abundance of in storage. The design that resulted, after several different variations was the Misha-Class Explorer. The design boasted a sleek maritime-esque hull, stylized CDD Nacelles with a notable taste of Sakura-class Light Gunship molded into its shape.

Further development came with the modified Misha-Class Explorer, the ISS Shiori. It would be the first ship produced by the Yugumo Corporation that would have the blue-black gradient hull pattern that would become standard on future ship designs. It was fielded in YE 42, on designs such as the Shuryoku-Class Super Freighter and Asuga-Class Tug. As of YE 43 it had become the standard and was named Yūzuki which translates to (夕月, ”Evening Moon”) in Yamataigo (邪馬台語).
