Star Army of Yamatai Starship Speeds

In order to make calculations easier for battlefield commands, the Star Army of Yamatai instituted an extensive upgrade program through Ketsurui Fleet Yards that synchronized the conventional and faster-than-light speeds for most Star Army starships. From an out of character standpoint, this is here to simplify conversion to the Starship Speed Standard.

Interstellar vehicles are divided into nine categories:

Cat Starship Type Example Classes Sublight Engines Distortion Field Hyperspace Drive
1 Standard Warships Chiharu, Kyoto .375c 18,750c (~2.14 ly/h) 394,470c (0.75 ly/m)
2 Star Fortresses Iori, Zodiac N/A 3,652.5c (10 ly/d) 262,980c (0.50 ly/m)
3 Scouts and Fast Escorts Yui, Nozomi, Yuuko .375c 19,723.5c (2.25 ly/h) 447,066c (0.85 ly/m)

  • c = The speed of light in a vacuum
  • au/h = Astronomical units per hour
