-Descended from the [[corp:​kage:​project_thought:​tsubame_fighter_prototype]],​ the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A is a long-intended upgrade to the Starfighter line using technology derived from Project Thought’s efforts to develop the [[yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​keiko_thought_armor]] and [[yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​kirie_thought_armor]]. ​ Unlike them, however, it can be used by pilots without digital minds in a conventional configuration while allowing for improved control and visibility. ​ Developed with the resources of the Seventh Fleet in secret, this machine is intended to expand upon and improve Yamatai’s existing armaments through an upgrade program to existing Hayabusa V6D and Hayabusa SD frames. ​ During this time, [[:​character:​murasaki_emiko]] served in the same fleet, and concepts of the [[stararmy:​small_craft:​ke-v9_nodachi_assault_fighter]] were integrated into the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A design not only to solve various problems, but also to ensure compatibility.+Descended from the [[corp:​kage:​project_thought:​tsubame_fighter_prototype]],​ the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A is a long-intended upgrade to the Starfighter line using technology derived from Project Thought’s efforts to develop the [[faction:yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​keiko_thought_armor]] and [[faction:yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​kirie_thought_armor]]. ​ Unlike them, however, it can be used by pilots without digital minds in a conventional configuration while allowing for improved control and visibility. ​ Developed with the resources of the Seventh Fleet in secret, this machine is intended to expand upon and improve Yamatai’s existing armaments through an upgrade program to existing Hayabusa V6D and Hayabusa SD frames. ​ During this time, [[:​character:​murasaki_emiko]] served in the same fleet, and concepts of the [[stararmy:​small_craft:​ke-v9_nodachi_assault_fighter]] were integrated into the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A design not only to solve various problems, but also to ensure compatibility.
  
 While the earliest concepts are only two years old, the technology in the craft has been in development for four years – a notably long development period. ​ This is due both to security concerns regarding the core technologies of the project, and the fact that it is an offshoot design – a deviation from the original Power Armor focus of its designer. ​ However, the intent of the machine to slash response time and give the pilot an edge is the same as in its Power Armor cousins, and it uses many of the same technologies and software. ​ Overall, this is intended to notably improve hit ratios and generally re-establish Yamataian superiority in Starfighter combat against brain-slave controlled NMX craft. While the earliest concepts are only two years old, the technology in the craft has been in development for four years – a notably long development period. ​ This is due both to security concerns regarding the core technologies of the project, and the fact that it is an offshoot design – a deviation from the original Power Armor focus of its designer. ​ However, the intent of the machine to slash response time and give the pilot an edge is the same as in its Power Armor cousins, and it uses many of the same technologies and software. ​ Overall, this is intended to notably improve hit ratios and generally re-establish Yamataian superiority in Starfighter combat against brain-slave controlled NMX craft.

-Built into the frame of the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A is a PT-M1-R3200 [[yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​scalable_graviton_beam_projector]],​ designed for the purposes of both grabbing onto surfaces and items securely, as well as for towing. ​ Though they are intended mainly for this use, it is also possible prevent other craft from going to FTL, to throw off an unshielded enemy’s aim by manipulating the gravity in their area, or any number of other useful ways yet to be discovered. ​ Since some NMX craft can only use their FTL once in a set span of time, effective use of this method may disrupt NMX battle tactics with a bit of luck.  It is also possible to use this system to “cling” to the hull of a friendly craft, effectively permitting the craft to support and carry more Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A than their facilities would normally allow.  ​+Built into the frame of the Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A is a PT-M1-R3200 [[faction:yamatai:​ketsurui_fleet_yards:​scalable_graviton_beam_projector]],​ designed for the purposes of both grabbing onto surfaces and items securely, as well as for towing. ​ Though they are intended mainly for this use, it is also possible prevent other craft from going to FTL, to throw off an unshielded enemy’s aim by manipulating the gravity in their area, or any number of other useful ways yet to be discovered. ​ Since some NMX craft can only use their FTL once in a set span of time, effective use of this method may disrupt NMX battle tactics with a bit of luck.  It is also possible to use this system to “cling” to the hull of a friendly craft, effectively permitting the craft to support and carry more Hayabusa Ke-V6-2A than their facilities would normally allow.  ​
  
 The Graviton Beam Projector is powerful enough to tow another Hayabusa or even a [[stararmy:​small_craft:​ke-v8_kawarime]] under full power, though at a predictably reduced acceleration at STL and at FTL.  This makes them able to aid in the recovery of various probes as well.  Depending on the type of engines used and the configuration,​ care should be taken not to damage the towed craft with the device’s exhaust. ​ It is often recommended to use the CFS for propulsion in this situation, or to tow the craft from a fair distance. The Graviton Beam Projector is powerful enough to tow another Hayabusa or even a [[stararmy:​small_craft:​ke-v8_kawarime]] under full power, though at a predictably reduced acceleration at STL and at FTL.  This makes them able to aid in the recovery of various probes as well.  Depending on the type of engines used and the configuration,​ care should be taken not to damage the towed craft with the device’s exhaust. ​ It is often recommended to use the CFS for propulsion in this situation, or to tow the craft from a fair distance.
