The Knight class (NUNS designation) was a carrier inhabited by the alien Vajra. Although characterized by humans as a “carrier,” the Knight class was actually a living organism that could survive in the vacuum of space. The Knight class organisms were powered by fold quartz and capable of super long-range bio-folds. Their defenses included a cannon with power equivalent to the Macross Cannon from a New Macross class stealth carrier, and it was also armed with many smaller cannons. The Knight could also transport large numbers of Heavy Soldiers and Mobile Soldiers.
