The Loewe (German for "Lion") is the Eurasian Union's next-generation Knightmare frame in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

This design is based on that of the Gelgoog from Mobile Suit Gundam but KF-ied as with the rest. Standard color is hellgrau.

Design[]

Developed as the Eurasian Union's breakthrough eighth-generation Knightmare frame, the Loewe was one of the most cutting edge designs to be fully produced and fielded in great quantity. Based on the seventh generation Koenigsloewe, the personal Knightmare frame of General Joachim "Desert Lion" Rommel, the Loewe, much like most eighth-generation Knightmare frames, does away with many of its predecessor's "excessive" features to make it more economical and easier to produce, but still retains high performance. In that area, the Loewe is on par with its fated rival, Britannia's Exeter.

From the onset, the Loewe is designed primarily for a combination of durability and offensive power, featuring dense armor to weather attacks as with most Eurasian Knightmares, enhanced speed, and mobility and an assortment of next-generation weaponry. Within the latter, the Loewe is the first production type Knightmare to utilize blitz weaponry, specialty weapons that utilize ions. Researched heavily upon by legendary scientist Nikola Tesla, this weapon type's destructive power is akin to that of the Britannian hadron cannon and Black Knight radiant wave weapons.

For the Loewe's armament, it mounts twin blitz swords, a pair of forearm mounted blitz vulcans and a hand-held blitz rifle, weapons comparable to those first experimented on by the Koenigsloewe. Though they appear similar to the MVS weapons utilized by the Lancelot, the blitz swords function by generating streams of ionic energy along the blades, superheating them so that they can cut deeper as well as allowing them to "short out" most electrical systems with each cut. As for the latter, the vulcans and rifle are essentially miniaturized ion cannons, each capable of launching ionic bursts over a long distance. That being said, whereas the vulcans fire short to mid-range rapid-fire bursts, the rifle can fire far more powerful bursts over long-range, which can also be rapid-fire or in concentrated beams.

History[]

At the onset of the Great World War, the Loewe is still in the experimental stages and much like Britannia's difficulties with the Exeter, the EU has some initial difficulty deploying it among its various forces. However, Krauss-Clement has managed to ship out several first-line units to the EU's best pilots, if only to gather further data for production.

In 2025, one such unit would be sent to the North African Front and assigned to Colonel Erich Hartmann of the 32nd Panzer Battalion. Hartmann would use his Loewe to combat the Britannian assault in the Libyan city of Tobruk, before staging a duel with the Britannian commander, Prince Lelouch vi Britannia, and his Mordred. After an intense fight to the finish, Lelouch would manage to destroy the Loewe at the very last moment, killing Hartmann in the process.

On the Far Eastern Front, a Loewe would be provided to General Sergei Zhukov's 10th Army for the defense of Moscow against Princess Marrybell's legions, which had just crossed the Urals and were moving well into the west. This unit would be taken up by the General's son, Major Andrei Zhukov.

Further into the war, Eurasian Central Command would form Kampfgruppe Chimera. This force would be comprised of the very best devicers the EU had to offer, all meant to do battle against the likes of the Knights of the Round or the Order of the Black Knights' Zero Squadron. Due to its elite status, Chimera would utilize the Loewe and its derivatives almost exclusively.
