Hankyu (Bow)

This article is about the infantry weapon. For the BattleMech, see Hankyu.


The Hankyu is a Shortbow of Japanese descent found particularly in the Draconis Combine. While of superior construction, making them harder to find and more effective in combat, it is used for largely the same purposes as the more common shortbow.[1] It was also the name given by Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery forces to the Clans' Arctic Cheetah during the first Battle of Luthien.
