Kinetic Kill Vehicle (KKV) was a projectile weapon devised by captain Nathan Scott, to employ rewired Takaran faster-than-light Scouts to deliver extreme amount of damage. Its development were spearhead by Doctor Abigail Sorenson along with the Corinairans on board the Aurora.
The KKV basic working principle is similar to many other projectile weapons such as bullets, that accelerate and direct solid objects toward a target to achieve damaging effects by direct application of kinetic energy. By travailing at faster-than-light it substantially limit the amount of early warning detection time, and can inflict a lot of damage on stationary targets or those with predictable course.
