The Ritter III (German for "Knight III"), formally known as the Panzerkampfritter III (German for "Armored Fighting Knight III"), is a fifth generation knightmare frame utilized by the Eurasian Union in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

This unit is based on the Gouf from Mobile Suit Gundam, but KF-ied. Aesthetic changes include a shorter "snout" (a la Gouf Custom) from the original Gouf, as well as the lack of heat rod and finger guns (similar to the A-model). For colors, it's usually painted in the EU's standard hellgrau color scheme, though a large number of alterations exist.

Description[]

The third iteration of the Ritter series. Based on the preceding Ritter II, the Eurasian Union's Ritter III was designed to capitalize on its predecessors' strengths as well as to correct some of their weaknesses; in other words, it is to the Ritter II what the Gloucester is to the Sutherland. Although on paper it is little different from the preceding model, the Ritter III is equipped with heavier armor to increase the pilot's survivability, while speed and maneuverability have also been increased enough that the Ritter III is on par with the Gloucester. For weaponry, the Ritter III uses the same set as the earlier models, though it replaces the original battle axe with a larger bladed sword and complimenting shield (the latter functioning as a sheath for the former).

History[]

Much like previous Eurasian knightmares, the Ritter III has met with great success in battle, as its ability to take great punishment and respond in kind as well as its unexpectedly superior mobility make it a true juggernaut. In the modern day, the Ritter III still remains a deadly combatant and can be found on frontline units throughout the Old World. However, with the introduction of seventh and eighth generation knightmares upon the battlefield, the Ritter III is now almost outdated and slated to be replaced by more modern machines.
