Code Geass Knightmare Frames

Knightmare Frames often have a humanoid shape and are usually between four and five meters tall. In addition to the standard range of bipedal movement, Knightmare Frames are equipped with Landspinners, self-propelled roller skates attached to the ankles of the machines, which allow them to achieve high mobility and speeds on most terrain. Visual data is gathered through Factsphere sensors, which have thermographic capability and an array of other data-collection functions which are collated in real-time. Factspheres are commonly protected under a layer of armor which can be retracted to improve system sensitivity. Knightmare Frames are piloted from a cockpit set in the protruding 'hump back' in the unit. The cockpit is a self-contained control center which can be ejected in case of emergency.

3rd Generation - Archetype

The 3rd Generation Knightmares were combat-effective platforms that used Sakuradite. It also marked the creation of the Ganymede Prototype, made by the Ashford Foundation. The test pilot was Marianne, who was famous for her piloting abilities.

4th Generation - Implementation

The 4th Generation Knightmares were the Glasgow which was the first mass production weapons platform. This is the reason why Britannia got Japan so easly. They eventually moved on to become the baseline unit for the army, and are used by Cornelia and her group.

Some Glasgow units are still used as Knight Police for law enforcement and some countries have used them as a base in their own knightmare frames.

5th Generation - Implementation

Following the success of the Knightmare Frames against conventional weapons of war, attention was turned to creating Knightmare Frames intended to destroy similar weapons, including other Knightmare Frames, reflecting the Chinese Federation and the EU's development of their own equivalent units. The Sutherland is the result of this. Second Princess Cornelia and her bodyguards make use of the Gloucester, a Sutherland variant designed specifically to combat other Knightmare Frames.

6th Generation - Evolution

The Sixth Generation featured almost no improvements in Knightmare Frame technology, earning it the moniker "Missing Generation" The most visible member of the Sixth Generation is the experimental Gawain, but most of its technologies are not mass-adopted.

7th Generation - Continuation

The creation of the Seventh Generation experimental Lancelot marks the first significant innovation since the mass adoption of Knightmare Frames, being the first Knightmare to employ electromagnetic shielding and MVS weaponry. The Lancelot becomes the template for the mass-production Vincent, which bears many similarities in design to the Lancelot but lacks many of the more-experimental technologies. The Seventh Generation also sees the mass adoption of Float Systems (first innovated in the Gawain) via modules that can be fitted to the backs of different Knightmares.

8th Generation - Continuation

The Eight and Ninth Generations represent the highest level of Knightmare technology seen in the series. Britannia's efforts are led by Camelot heads Lloyd Asplund and Cecile Croomy while Rakshata Chawla produces advancements for the Black Knights. The Knights of the Round use mostly eighth-generation Knightmares, as does Lelouch when he acquires the Shinkiro. The Ninth Age sees the introduction of the Energy Wing, a Float System giving unrivaled agility and allowing for blinding speeds; but being highly difficult to control. Only two Ninth Age Knightmares are known: the Lancelot Albion and the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.

9th Generation - Aspirations

The Eight and Ninth Generations represent the highest level of Knightmare technology seen in the series. Britannia's efforts are led by Camelot heads Lloyd Asplund and Cecile Croomy while Rakshata Chawla produces advancements for the Black Knights. The Knights of the Round use mostly eighth-generation Knightmares, as does Lelouch when he acquires the Shinkiro. The Ninth Age sees the introduction of the Energy Wing, a Float System giving unrivaled agility and allowing for blinding speeds; but being highly difficult to control. Only two Ninth Age Knightmares are known: the Lancelot Albion and the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.

Guren Models - Guren Models

The Guren Mk-II was orignally a prototype Knightmare Frame model designed by Indian engineer Rakshata Chawla, manufactured by Japan, and built by the Kyoto House. It is radically different from its Britannian counterparts, and its technology is on par with most seventh generation Knightmare Frames, a fact that is a source of pride for its manufacturers. The later Gekka models were based on the Guren's technology. Unlike Britannian made Knightmare cockpits, the Guren Mk-II features an unconventional pilot seat shaped in the form of a motorbike seat, and a helm-like outgrowth surrounding its retractable head. The only existing unit is in the possession of the Order of the Black Knights and piloted by Kallen Kozuki.

Lancelot Models - Lancelot Models

The Lancelot was originally developed by Lloyd as an experimental model. As the show progressed, the Lancelot was upgraded, further enhancing its capabilities, allowing its pilot, Suzaku, to excel in combat, and eventually, even surpass the skills of those of the Knight of Rounds.

Shen Hu Models - Shen Hu Models

The Shen Hu was a Chinese-based model developed in secret by the government. It was designed to be a top-notch killing machine, but it was tossed aside because no one could pilot it. Xingke proved to be an exception to the rule.
