YSS Illustrious

YSS Illustrious, (nicknamed “Lusty”), NB-X1-10, is a Sharie-class Battleship built at Ketsurui Star Fortress by Ketsurui Fleet Yards in YE 31 for the Star Army of Yamatai's First Fleet. Her motto is “Nothing Is Unreachable.” She is commanded by Shôshô Rufus Sydney.


The YSS Illustrious was an SP/JP forum based plot under development by Wes to replace the stalled YSS Senbu plot as the site's main “carrier” type plot. It focused primarily on life aboard a battleship during the Second Mishhuvurthyar War and the missions of the ship's fighter squadrons.

  • October 9, YE 31: The third block of 15 Sharie-class Battleships is completed.

The 52 ships prepared to penetrate the NMX blockade of the KMS North Gate. The initial mission was to deliver the 15 newer battleships to the fleets near Yamatai.
