The Minori-Class is named after Ketsurui-Chinomai Minori and is the replacement for the Jihi-Class Medical Ship. The goal was to make a smaller, more versatile ship while reducing the cost in manufacturing. The Minori-class also features the latest medical equipment available to the Star Army of Yamatai. The Minori is fully capable of fulfilling the objectives of its predecessor.
During the first year of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War casualties were heavy, fleets were decimated and planets were ravaged for seemingly no more reason that to cause pain and suffering. The need to rapidly deploy medical services increased. Design work started early in YE 32 with the first prototype rolling out near the middle of the year. The Minori-Class was a balance of providing medical aid, resurrection, and soldier creation on a mobile platform that can go where ever it is needed quickly.
The Minori has the same basic lines as the Nougaku-Class Agriculture Vessel it has the Star Army Medical emblem on the top as well as the Star Army Hinomaru. Its hull is painted Star Army blue, and the fins are painted teal. The point defense system of twenty Star Army Anti-Fighter Turret, Type 31 can be seen dotting the perimeter. The three large Turbo Aether Plasma drives are also prominent.

Due to their proximity to the shuttle bay, it is recommended that the aether engines be turned off during shuttle takeoff and landing operations.
The Minori is armed strictly for defense. Its only weaponry is as follows
