Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Lysithea class cruiser, alongside the Adrastea class battleship, form the heart of the Zanscare Empire’s Motorad fleet. Deployed in UC 0153, the Motorad fleet is the brainchild of Duker Iq, a member of the Zanscare’s Gachi Party who is obsessed with motorcycles. The ships of the Motorad fleet are equipped with massive tires, giving them the appearance of enormous motorcycles. When flying in space or in the air, the tires separate in half and function as propulsion units. However, their main function is to travel across the ground and crush entire towns and cities under their tires to clear away the empire’s opposition on Earth. The Lysithea is armed with multiple main and secondary guns, plus missile launchers.
