The Gloucester is a knightmare frame produced and utilized by the Britannian Empire as an ace exclusive design in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

Its original incarnation, no design changes made. However, non-ace piloted models (i.e. units not used by Cornelia, Guilford or those associated with them) are now painted in standard Britannian blue (i.e. the Sutherland's scheme) instead of the dark purple of the main series. Units operated by the Eildons are in turn painted white.

Description[]

Developed from the highly successful Sutherland, the close combat oriented Gloucester was a knightmare reserved for only the best pilots Britannia had to offer. Equipped with more powerful landspinners for greater mobility and a slightly more aerodynamic frame to allow better ease of motion, the Gloucester was initially the fastest and most maneuverable knightmare ever developed when it first came off the assembly line, although this also made it harder to control than a Sutherland. Though it shared most of its weapons with the Sutherland and the Glasgow that came before it, the Gloucester's primary weapon was a unique heavy lance, inspired by the knights of old. This weapon incorporates a set of expanding prongs on four sides, allowing it to easily trap and disarm enemy weapons. Combined with the Gloucester's sheer mobility, the lance is a fearsome weapon, and can be used to penetrate right into an enemy knightmare's cockpit, killing the pilot and preventing him from escaping via the standard ejection system.

History[]

Initially, the Gloucester was used almost exclusively by pilots that displayed the most skill in battle, such as Princess Cornelia li Britannia and those under her service, as well as the elite Knights of the Round. Such pilots were permitted to have their Gloucester's equipped with cape-like attachments to display their elite status. Following the Devastation of Japan, the Gloucester would be produced more heavily to serve as a commander exclusive unit, while still maintaining its original high performance. While remaining quite effective in battle, especially in the Great World War, the Britannians have slowly begun to phase this proven design out in favor of more advanced seventh and eighth generation knightmare frames, such as the Exeter.

The Eildons would also make use of the Gloucester for their own forces. 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 Gloucester 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.
