The Gulvi-ka Mui, or Sword of Mui is the most unique class of ship that the Poku'vonai have constructed since the Poku Movi Vamâqi (Clan Void Berth) was completed. It was commissioned after they encountered the Defilers of the Dead. It is a warship built to carry emissaries to the Warrior Cat Women Clan. It is armed so that the Vonai-Rya'ka (Emissary) can do so from a position of strength. There are only two of them built. It was designed and constructed under the guidance of Kohaku Syali.
The Sword bears a strong resemblance to the Sakura-class Light Gunship. This is because it was built using parts of the hull of several Sakura. It has a single sword blade in the bow; from which it takes its name. It is painted in standard Poku Saeruo Degonjo colors. The shuttle bay can be seen on the upper stern, and two Tinvymai Tyokame (Plasma Drives) are present on each wing. From the end of each wing a Âmanus Rotyka (Annihilation Cannon) protrudes when active. The Sword is 37% larger than the Sakura-class Light Gunship.
With the outbreak of the sector wide Second Mishhuvurthyar War; the mindset of the clan was changing. Isolation had been their way, but Mui (Clan Leader) Tarbah Leyto realized that for her people to survive change was inevitable. When she appointed Kohaku Syali as Vonai-Rya'ka (Emissary) she took a page from their history. Emissaries were always sent on a formidable ship of their own design. So she gave Kohaku Syali control over the design.
Kohaku Syali started reviewing resources and wanted a ship that would be unlike any other clan ship, but embody its attributes and add some aspects of the ships she served on in her prior life.
She found several Sakura hulks that clan had acquired. She chose them to be the frame work for the design. They were brought to the Poku Movi Vamâqi (Clan Void Berth) where they were stripped of their Yamataium hull and systems. The frames were then cut and spliced together to create a longer silhouette, and the Sword was born.
Since the Clan admired the Blade ships of the Poku Loi Daho'ai (Clan of Female Warriors) she chose to keep the upper blade from one of the ships. Modifications soon followed with the addition of dedicated shuttle space, and expanding the upper hull.
The interior was completely reworked and standard clan interiors were installed.

Unlike the warships of the Hidden Sun Clan, the Gulvi-ka Mui uses a Jodau Yoqajo (Integrated Brain) for its primary computer system. Many sub-systems and stations use Iginâ Jodau'ta Fiqorka (Neuron Processor Module) for additional computational power.
The first Gulvi-ka Mui was also equipped with a resurrected MEGAMI, to facilitate data transfer with the Poku Loi Daho'ai (Clan of Female Warriors). Upon completion of negotiations, the system was removed and given to the Star ARmy. Other models of this design will not have this equipment as it was removed upon completion of negotiations.
The Gulvi-ka Mui is equipped with the standard Ta'te Goly Norjopa (Far Talking Systems) for talking to clan vessels.
