The Model 32 Gigamishhu Carrier is a single massive NMX soldier built into an armored hull that contains massive storage areas and an entire NMX command facility.
Developed in YE 32 by MORGAN primarily to support the development of Higaflan into a breeding ground for NMX soldiers, the Gigamishhu carrier combines massive storage space with support tentacles capable of building a wide variety of structures. Entire logistics engines, Armies, or captive populations can be stored inside of the ship and onboard equipment allows for rapid construction, deployment, or processing of cargo through use of construction tentacles, drop pods, or an onboard prisoner processing facility.
Though lightly armed, the Gigamishhu is far from defenseless and is capable of deploying thousands of gunboats, bomber pods, and battle pods. Backing this up is a FTL particle cannon array that uses intense particle beams transported by the FTL field generated by a NMX: Model 32 Projectile Launcher for transport. Defensively, the entire ship is capable of phasing allowing for stealthy entry and exit of a battlespace. The massive size allows for a level of protection against the radiation generated from phasing but the immense resource cost for building a ship of this scale using the relatively untested phasing technology ensures that only a few ships of this class can be produced.
Due to the nature of the ship, the Gigamishhu carrier can currently only be produced in the Higaflan system’s shipyards one at a time using a re-purposed Shlarvasseroth-class construction facility.
The gigamishhu is encased inside of a massive armored shell. Engines protrude from the shell in the rear and a hole for the cannon array is at the front. Along the underside numerous pieces of equipment stick out of the hull. At the front are two large blue 'eyes' which act as the main sensors. Pink docking hatches and dark brown and grey lift engines are right behind the eyes. Cylindrical pink drop pod bays are behind those. In the middle are three force field guarded launch and recovery bays for gunships, transports, and battle pods. Directly above these bays are the massive star ship manipulator tentacles, each of which is hundreds of meters long with numerous appendages that extend from the tips capable of preforming a variety of tasks. Behind this, and in front of the engines, are the gigamishhu's birthing organs. Along the top are the defensive blisters and a large retractable roof which covers the internal warehouse capable of storing thousands of cargo containers.
Prisoner processing is carried out towards the rear of the craft, starship maintenance and construction in the center, soldier's quarters in front of this, and command functions towards the front. The entire upper decks are cargo space.
