The Two Minutes to Midnight is an airship loyal to the Radesha Raft City and flagship of the Radeshan Fleet. It is one of the most renowned vessels of the southern seas, rightly feared for the role it has played in the sacking of large Traction Cities and aquatic settlements. The Two Minutes to Midnight is a floating fortress of canons and rocket tubes, making it the most deadly of the Radeshan Battle Cruisers.
- Following a similar naming scheme from the authors Philip Reeve and Iain M. Banks, the vessel has had it's name taken from a cultural reference. In this case it is from the song Two Minutes to Midnight by Iron Maiden, which in itself is a reference to the method of illustrating how close the human race was to global disaster, the Doomsday Clock.
