The Sutherland is a knightmare frame utilized by the Britannian Empire and many other military forces in Code Geass Megiddo.


Its original incarnation, no design changes made. Outside standard Britannian blue, units operated by the Eildons are tinted in white and those otherwise acquired by Peace Mark are colored dark brown.


Designed and developed after the conquest of Japan (Area 11), the Sutherland was at one time the pinnacle of knightmare technology. More of a refinement to its predecessor, the Glasgow, than a new design, the Sutherland was the first knightmare frame in existence to be designed primarily to combat other knightmares; this proves to be an essential development, as the Glasgow's success in the Second Pacific War meant that the other superpowers, the Chinese Federation and Eurasian Union, would soon field their own knightmares. To that end, the Sutherland features a redesigned, simplified cockpit system with improved life support, as well as the landspinners being refined for higher speed and efficiency and extra armor being added to the frame itself to increase durability. Those aside, however, the Sutherland was not a far development from the Glasgow, which had caused many to believe (for a time) that the knightmare frame had reached the summit of technological advancement.


In only a few years, the Sutherland would replace the aging Glasgow as Britannia's main battle unit, as well as being used as the basis for numerous variation designs such as the Gloucester, a high mobility close combat specialized knightmare meant for Britannian aces and commanders. The Sutherland would see usage in many conflicts, from the Japanese Insurrection in Area 11 to Operation Lionheart in the Middle Eastern Federation, later conquered as Area 18, and then to the Black Rebellion and the current Great World War. However, by 2025, this fifth generation knightmare would become conceivably outdated and overshadowed by the development of seventh and eighth generation knightmare frames.

Outside of Britannia, other, oft less conventional forces would make use of the Sutherland. Among those is the militant organization Peace Mark, which would utilize brown tinted units in their drive to "end war" and bring about "complete world peace". Several of these Sutherlands would survive the organization's destruction in 2018 and continue to be used by Orpheus Zevon's remnant faction in Far Eastern Eurasia.

The Eildons would also make use of the Sutherland 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 Sutherlands 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.
