About the Taka-Class Shuttle (1B)

The 1B variant of the Taka-Class Shuttle, outfitted to Star Army of Yamatai standards. Taka (鷹) means “hawk” in Yamataigo.

Mission Specialization

This ship is ideal for fulfilling the following mission profiles.

  • Away Team Operations and Support
  • VIP transport
  • Cargo operations
  • Troop transport

Appearance of the Taka-Class

With the typical Yugumo Fleetworks combination of sleek and chunky, the Taka features sharp angles and an aggressive, somewhat maritime look. Even if more angular and less curved than ships like the Misha, it still fits in well with the current design ethos.

With the exception of the systems upgraded to Star Army of Yamatai standards, the interior is identical to the base model.

SAoY Variant

The Star Army of Yamatai variant differs from the civilian 1A variant by the installation and upgrades of a few additional, restricted systems. Many of these systems are taken from the Ke-V9 "Nodachi" Assault Fighter.

The SAoY variant's nomenclature is Yu-T1-1B.

Signature Reduction and Stealth

The armor layer is impregnated with an Omnihue matrix, allowing effectively unlimited control over the coloration, pattern, text, and insignia of the surface. This serves as thermoptic camouflage and signature reduction, if set properly. The inclusion of the Type 44 Star Army Electronic Warfare Suite increases these capabilities by utilizing Xiulurium to replace the Sitearium coating on the 1A variant, and leveraging the stealth capabilities of the ICFS.

Computers and Electronics

The Taka-class Shuttle (1B) is equipped with Compact Integrated Electronics System (CIES) as the master system, with its included communications, targeting, interface, and sensor systems. KAIMON is still installed, but it plays a secondary role and serves to facilitate the ELECTRA-Passage. It also has the uplink and PANTHEON/SYNC connect module.

In addtion to its KAIMON Kagami sensors and CIES sensors, there are also a Mineral Scanner and SachiTech Tech-Scanner available to the pilot.

Electronic Warfare Suite

Taka-class 1B are equipped with Star Army Electronic Warfare Suite, Type 44, the Star Army of Yamatai variant of the ELECTRA system.


To better facilitate low-altitude operations and NOE flight courses, the Taka 1B is equipped with the Sorakagami Aerospace Operations Suite integrated from the factory.


The Taka-class Shuttle 1B has the Umikagami Subsurface Operations Suite, enabling a range of sub-aquatic applications.
