The Nihontu is a fearsome Imperial starship equipped with banks of Lance turrets and heavy armour, and is the pride of the Ma'Kao dynasty of Rogue Traders. Lady Sun Lee, the matriach of the Ma'Kao, is paranoid about losing the ship in combat, however, a fear which prompts her to never leave port without an escort of three raiders. The Nihontu itself is a Dauntless-class Light Cruiser with a crew of approximately 65,000 men and women sworn to the service of House Ma'Kao, featuring a prow Dragon's Breath Lance weapon as well as various Ryza Pattern plasma weapon batteries.
