Airships

Final Fantasy XII's Airships come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, and are mostly named after traditional Final Fantasy summons. Also, the interior of some Airships is used as "dungeons" throughout the game.

Owned by Balthier and Fran, the Strahl becomes your party's main method of transportation for reaching many important Locations in Ivalice. In fact, some areas can be accessed no other way.

Aside from travel, Airships are used for fierce battles and are a vital part of the storyline.

Sage Knowledge

"Airborne craft, developed by Moogles centuries ago. They float by the power of skystone, and are given direction and speed by means of propeller or glossair ring.

Currently, they are one of the most popular forms of transport in Ivalice, and the skyroutes are comfortably the busiest of the highways linking the major cities.

Airships range in size from private yachts to giant military warcraft.

Unable to fly in jagd, where skystone is ineffective."

No. 1 Light Cruiser Class Airship belonging to the 8th Fleet of the Archadian Imperial Army. Ordered to return to Rabanastre after the Nethicite fragment known as the "Dawn Shard" was recovered, but sank in an explosion thought to have been caused by the relic before she could make port.

Strahl

Airship designed and built by YPA, a shipwright's guild of Archades. Officially named the "YPA-G847 Test Combat Fighter," production was halted after the completion of a single test model due to dissatisfaction on the part of the Imperial customer with the costly dual-movable-wing design. Scheduled for scrapping, Balthier liberated the ship at the last moment and has since modified the Strahl to his tastes with a new engine and numerous other augmentations, making it a very different ship from the one envisioned by its YPA inventors.

Bahamut

No. 1 Sky Fortress Class Airship, belonging to the Western divisions of the Archadian Imperial Army, a mobile fortress and tactical base, under the control of the commandant of the Archadian forces, Lord Vayne. This was the last sky fortress designed by Dr. Cid, powered both by ordinary skystone and manufacted Nethicite, the latter absorbing Mist from its surroundings to generate the massive amounts of energy the fortress requires to function.
