The Exeter is Britannia's first eighth generation knightmare frame. It is a mass production unit based on the Mordred and Lancelot, meant to become the Empire's mainstay unit in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

As said, Megiddo's take of a mass produced Lancelot. The main difference is that the Exeter has a faceplate akin to the Vincent Ward's, as well as a forehead mono-eye camera. As an actual production unit, it is also colored like the Ward, though ace custom versions exist. For the latter, Cornelia's unit is colored in her trademark regal violet, Helena's is tinted in silver, Sokkia's is colored in the red and gold colors of the Ceridwren Knights and Sheshtal Forgnar's is painted in desert tan and brown. Units operated by the Eildons are painted in their traditional white.

Design[]

Following much of the design lineage of its ancestors, the Exeter is meant to be economical and easy to produce, yet also retaining much of its predecessor's superior performance. By the estimations of Camelot, a single Exeter is equal in power and performance to a squadron of Sutherlands, though obviously not quite as equal to the Lancelot or Mordred. It namely does away with the original Dual-Eye Camera Sensors and "Blaze Luminous" shielding, but otherwise retains all other armaments and features.

History[]

Following the overwhelming success of the prototype seventh generation knightmare frame Lancelot, the Britannian Empire sets about creating a new mass production model inspired by it. After some years of further research and development, engineers at Britannic Defense Systems, Britannia's primary knightmare producer, would create the Exeter, Britannia's first eighth generation knightmare frame. Meant for mass production, several "Block I" units were developed for field testing and passed to some of Britannia's most accomplished devicers.

One unit would be given to Princess Cornelia li Britannia, better known as the "Witch of Britannia" for her valor and prowess in battle. While Cornelia would indeed take an Exeter on as her new personal unit, she would withdraw herself from military service after the Devastation of Japan. In this self-imposed exile, Cornelia would only utilize the Exeter in mock battle for evaluation purposes as well as training any new recruits, while passing all opportunities to engage in actual combat against Britannia's enemies. However, this would all change in March of 2025, in which the newly reemerged Black Knights would launch a daring raid against the Britannian capital of Pendragon, thus forcing Cornelia to engage them in true combat. There, the Witch of Britannia would reclaim her title and reputation, making effective use of her Exeter while fending off Black Knight General Kyoshiro Tohdoh and his Zangetsu.

Another unit, meanwhile, would be given to Dame Helena Rowe, Prince Schneizel el Britannia's knight of honor. Though her duties to her liege meant Dame Helena could only rarely engage in battle on the Western Eurasian Front, the occasions that she did would win her further renown as "Schneizel's Sword". Indeed, many Eurasians would take the presence of her silver Exeter as a sign that the battle had immediately shifted, both for obvious reasons and for the White Prince's likely presence behind it.

A third unit would likewise be passed onto the Ceridwren Knights and assigned to Captain Dame Sokkia Sherpa. Painted in the red and gold livery of her order, "Crasher" Sokkia would make effective use of her Exeter in the service of her liege, Princess Marrybell mel Britannia, upon the Far Eastern Front. Notably, Sokkia would often fight alongside fellow Ceridwrens Captain Sir Leonhardt Steiner and Captain Sir Tink Lockhart - each piloting a Preston and a Kirkwall (production versions of the Elyan and Hector) respectively - through these battles.

And finally, a fourth unit was given out Major Sir Sheshtal Forgnar, commander of the elite Imperial Crusaders. Since receiving his own Exeter, Sheshtal would remain vigilant in Area 18's (the former Middle East) defense, ensuring that Britannia would retain firm control of the region despite the innumerable insurgent groups contesting them, up to and including Zulfiqar.

Outside of Britannia, the Eildons would also make use of the Exeter. Adorned in the secret order's traditional white coloring, these machines have been modified on some level to be used against Geass Users and their (possibly enslaved) followers, purportedly with technology either based on or outright reverse engineered from the enigmatic First Civilization. As a result, these Exeters have both superior performance and higher efficiency compared to Imperial Army units, though such only warrants so much in the hands of Eildon devicers who, being more oriented toward clandestine operations against irregular forces as opposed to conventional battle, are ultimately inferior to their "actual military" contemporaries.
