Izumo's default armaments include laser cannons (non-homing) and missile launchers. These are most likely standard issue for battleships of the Izumo's model. It is equipped for ship to ship combat and large scale KLF deployment. It can house at least 88 crew and a platoon of Mon-Soono. The Izumo's propulsion, attack, and carrier capabilities make it at least a match for the Gekko during several early encounters.
Large engines were added to enable the ship to perform "trajectory flight", a low outer atmosphere technique used to quickly traverse vast distances on the planet. A homing laser and a larger hangar were also retro-fitted onto the ship. At the behest of Captain Jurgens, the Super Izumo was also painted red.
