The Taka (Japanese for "Hawk") is a multirole aerospace fighter utilized by the Order of the Black Knights in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

General design is that of the Mitsubish F-2, but refined for the Code Geass setting. It is normally colored in its host organization's black.

Design[]

Though the Knightmare Frame is by and large considered the vanguard of modern warfare, the lack of a viable airborne model has ensured that the traditional aerospace fighter remains the principle air weapon. As a result, fighters remain commonplace throughout the various military forces of the early 21st century, and the Order of the Black Knights are no exception.

Similar to other Order units, the Taka is a reverse-engineered craft, cloned from the Britannian Falcon air superiority fighter and refined/enhanced throughout its development. Compared to the Falcon, the Taka has a twenty-five percent larger wing area, yet is constructed with composite components to ensure lighter weight than otherwise as well as a reduced radar cross-section. The enlarged wings also grant it greater maneuverability and ordinance carrying capacity to the Falcon. In the latter case, the Taka features space for up to eleven hardpoints (eight underwing, one on either wingtip and under the fuselage), in which it can carry a variety of weapons (air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground missiles and rocket pods) as well as tactical equipment (sensor pods and jamming pods). Such armaments are in turn supplemented by the Taka's mounted autocannon.

Once again similar to other Order (air) units, the Taka was also designed for STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) in mind, so that it can deploy and return to more isolated airbases (such as those in the Ryukyu Islands). As a result, the Taka can take off from and land on virtually any airstrip (albeit those properly rated for jet aircraft), allowing the Black Knights to field these fighters from and to almost any area of the world.

History[]

The Taka would first be utilized during the Red Rebellion, in which they would perform air-to-ground support for the Black Knights' main incursion forces, as well as contend with Imperial Typhoons simultaneously. From that initial success, the Taka would go onto take part in other fronts, up to and including escorting the air cruiser Tsuru into the Arctic Circle for Operation Fubuki.
