Description[edit]

Described as a brutal weapon, the Koroshiya is an advanced Draconis Combine heavy Aerospace Fighter designed by Wakazashi Enterprises of Chatham during the middle of the thirty-second century. Entering production in 3138, the Koroshiya is intended to be an effective if not blunt and durable fighter. The fighter is intended for assault missions and when used in a squadron formation is effective in the role of anti-DropShip.[5]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The design was engineered to take severe punishment, utilizing 18.5 tons of Naketsu Nagareboshi Reflective Armor to protect its hull. With this protection, the fighter can endure considerable amounts of enemy fire despite the specialized nature of its armor type. Also enhancing its means of fending off attacks on it and its charges is an advanced Angel Electronic Countermeasures Suite.

Designed not unlike the Lyran's Eisensturm Heavy Fighter, the Koroshiya relies on its big guns to fulfil its mission objectives. Its weaponry comes in the form of a pair of Lord’s Light 3 Heavy Particle Projection Cannons and an Apollo FCS guided 40-tubed Medium-Range Missile launcher found in the craft's heavily armored nose. The launcher is supplied with two tons of ammunition to allow it to fire twelve volleys' worth of the missiles.[6]

Notes[edit]

The name "Koroshiya" is Japanese and translates to killer or hitman.
