History

Godzilla: Final Wars

The Karyu fires its laser at Anguirus in Godzilla: Final Wars

The Karyu was dispatched to stop Anguirus's rampage in Shanghai, and fought him to a stalemate. Anguirus was eventually taken away by the Xiliens, but released again when their plans were uncovered. With Anguirus deployed to Shanghai once more, the Karyu arrived to fight him again, but this time had to contend with huge 'clouds' of Xilien Fighters as well. While the Karyu managed to defend against the alien ships, it quickly began to sustain large amounts of damage to its engines, and caught fire. With the crew distracted, Anguirus launched himself at the Karyu, slamming it into the ground and destroying it in a huge explosion.

Wait, so that thing at the bow is literally called a blade?

…..

Nice. Wonder if it could be used like a battering ram. Or, in this case, a battering "blade."

Yup. The Rumbling has a Magnum Maser Cannon, Eclair has an Iron Ball Maser, and this has a Blader Maser.

I KNEW IT! I knew they had to have Maser Cannons! Does this mean that they also have the dual Miniature Plasma Maser Beam Cannons, too? Asking cuz it seemed like the firepower was seriously lacking with a couple of them. Specifically,...

1. Gotengo (Cuz why not?!),

2. Karyu,

3. Rumbling,

and 4. Éclair.

But now, I'm relieved to know now, on the Masers!

Lemme rephrase that list. It's the order of greatest to least amount of firepower.

All three battleships have miniature Masers, MA-PM020 missiles, and their respective special Masers.
