United Nations Space Command


"Prepare for our stealth vessels to make an approach on their flank."
―Fleet Master Biranus

"Ordnance incoming! How did they discover us!"
―Brute Stealth Shipmaster

The Raijin-class Escort Destroyer is a modified version of the Indra-class Destroyer, removing the keel MAC gun on the prow and replacing it with a multi array high power Magnetic Array. This is similar to the one found on the Obsidian- and Minerva-class Prowlers. This, in conjunction with a vast suite of counter ECM and stealth detection systems allow it to discover what can potentially be enemy stealth fighters or stealth ships.

Its equipped with a PAVE RAVEN Magnetic Array. This array detects magnetic anomalies caused by ships, through long-range electric and electromagnetic field detection arrays of great sensitivity and uses this to home in on them. The Magnetic Array is incredibly accurate and has a long range of 400,000 kilometres and is highly resistant to jamming methods, detection and interference. On top of that, stealth systems, such as RADAR resistance and optical camouflage, don't affect its capabilities.

The Raijin is used for long range sensor capabilities, being capable of detecting starships at exceedingly long ranges, even warships with stealth capabilities. It can pick out a ship, the tonnage and power output, even in dense debris fields or asteroid fields, inside planetary bodies, or even through celestial bodies. This allows it to perform long range threat detection for escort duties or for battlegroup support.

Mímir-class Escort Destroyer

The Mímir-class Escort Destroyer was a subclass of the Raijin-class. The class was aesthetically the same as the Indra-class, but had an W/AS M21A 'Tsunami' DIC replacing its MAC gun. This subclass was employed extensively during the latter stages of the Necros War.

UNSC Comments

"The system is flawless; you send out intermittent pings and probes from behind a frigate and destroyer screen for five minutes then within 3.9 seconds your AI has your answer."

"I see these ladies get deployed in one of three ways. Deployed with wolfpacks of Frigates and Destroyers, scouting systems for targets, covering flanks of fleets or covering convoys in conjunction with Raijins and Indra."
