LR-69 “Dyakka” Mobile Command Vehicle
Developed in 198X to replace the older LR-32, the Dyakka is designed to support a squad of agents in the field, with a full communications suite, and mini-data center. It is capable of holding up to four of the larger Kittan heavy battlesuits, and provides recharge stations for the Yoko power armor. Needing something large but unobtrusive, the CoK designed the Dyakka to look like a standard 18-wheel tractor trailer.
Lockheed C-5 Galaxy
In 198X, the CoK obtained four Lockheed C-5 Galaxies for use in transporting their personnel and equipment around the globe. They are all camouflaged as United States Air Force craft, but can be identified by those in the know by the CK prefix in their serial numbers. One, CK-66785-90, was lost in action in 199X, but the other three remain operational.
Formerly the Imperial Japanese Navy heavy cruiser of the same name, Takao was taken as a prize of war by the Allies at the end of World War II. Originally slated to be sunk as a target, Takao was instead handed over to the CoK for use as a deep sea monitoring platform (DAMP) from which they could monitor R’lyeh for signs of activity.
Takao was refitted, retaining her main guns, but replacing the remainder of her armament with underwater combat weapons. Her sensor systems were also replaced and upgraded, and, in 196X, she was converted to nuclear power. Takao was originally crewed by specially-trained volunteers, but she was converted to AI control in 198X, due to the mental strain on people who spend too much time too close to R’lyeh and its sleeping occupants. Takao’s AI system, initially designed as a simple data transmission and weapon operation system, mutated for some reason in 199X, and gained a full-blown personality. Initial concern proved unfounded, and since the personality actually improved the cruiser’s efficiency, it was allowed to remain.
