The Brunor is a prototype assault Knightmare Frame in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

More or less the Ahuramazda from Akito the Exiled. The only change is that the autocannon pods do not use Gatling guns, but rather oversized single-barreled guns akin to those seen in Warhammer 40K. The guns also lack the ability to "spread" as in Akito.

Design[]

Developed as part of the "Missing" Sixth Generation of the Knightmare Frame, the Brunor was meant to showcase a (once) radical concept: the Assault Knightmare. As opposed to the prior fourth and fifth generations being built around speed and mobility, assault type Knightmare Frames were to be heavily armored, such that they could weather virtually any attack launched against it, as well as equipped with equally heavy firepower to match. Essentially the reintroduction of the Main Battle Tank in Knightmare form.

The Brunor followed upon this concept and more, holding the armor and overall durability of three Sutherlands put together. Though this greatly diminished its maneuverability, the Brunor was more than capable of taking several hits while charging headlong into the fray, something that no prior Knightmare model could hope to match. For offensive power, it was equipped with two tri-barreled heavy autocannon pods as its primary weapons (whose barrels were as large as the Brunor itself), two hand pistols for backup weapons, two short lances for some level of melee capability and two slash harkens were likewise placed in its chest. As the autocannons each had extremely high firing rates, multiple clip shaped ammo drums (nicknamed "slabs") were placed on the cockpit pod, with the bullets fed into each autocannon via chain belts. With this arrangement, the Brunor had enough ammo to sustain up to three minutes of continuous fire.

History[]

Though a revolutionary concept, especially when compared to the Knightmare Frames of the prior Fourth and Fifth Generation, the Brunor was not produced due to its heavy cost as well as it (at the time) being considered the antithesis of a "true" Knightmare. As a result, only one Brunor prototype would be produced and promptly forgotten for a time. The concept of the Assault Knightmare would also be forgotten until the Lancelot's success in Area 11 reestablished interest in the Knightmare Frame, with one side effect being further experimentation on alternate applications. In particular, the Brunor would serve as a major influence of the Hector, the chosen steed of Knight of Six Anya Alstreim, and its production variant, the Kirkwall.

As for the Brunor itself, it would eventually end up in the ownership of one Schutenkin Gordiengo III, who was said to have used both his military and nobility-based connections to obtain it. Though it is unknown if Gordiengo had used the Brunor in any of the Eurasian fronts during the Great World War, he would utilize it against the Black Knights - namely Major Kallen Kouzuki and the Guren Nishiki - during the Battle of the Bering Strait. Against the Red Dragoness, whose performance and notoriety from Area 11 were well known and recorded, Gordiengo and the Brunor would initially perform spectacularly, easily overwhelming the Guren and its devicer (herself still recovering from the previous attack on Pendragon). However, before the killing blow could be made, Kallen would mysteriously recover and, after some additional fighting, ensnare the Brunor in her machine's radiant wave surger and obliterate it.
