The Aopoa Qhire Khartu ( kyexiin: Kuail Kal2tu(Proper); SRX: Kuail Kal’tu (Proper); literally dire fly light fighter; )[1] is the light attack craft of the Xi’An military. Contrary to Human ship design, the Khartu doesn’t have a traditional main thruster, instead featuring an array of maneuvering thrusters on articulated rigs. This design allows for incredible agility, making them the bane of UEE pilots, who bestowed the nickname ‘Quark’ because when all of the thrusters are firing, the ship looks like a spark flying through space.

The Qhire Khartu is used by the Xi’an military as a scout ship.

History

During the Cold War with the UEE, rare reports claimed that unknown Xi’an scout ships were sighted evading border patrols.

On 2896-01-15 SET, the UEE successfully captured one of the scout ships as it had been found derelict and pilotless by a naval recon squadron. It was taken immediately to an undisclosed bunker for further study, where Imperial researchers spent years trying to decipher and understand the damaged technology.
