Another Knightmare Frame franken? two out of three finished Knightmare Frame Projects, complete!
This is the Caennard. It's a Limited Production version of the Justine, with various weapon, design and functional elements taken from the Guren SEITEN Eight Elements Type, such as the Radiation Wave emission capabilities and similar energy wing propulsion systems. Suffice to say, it's like the Justine and Guren SEITEN had a baby that was splashed with gold, vanilla and black.

This is a Franken designed by me and thus not an original, from-scratch creation, though it includes -a lot of- original tweaks and parts in the design. Arts used belong to their original creators and not me.
The request for this Franken came as far back as 2 years ago, on August 26th, 2008. Through several thousand bouts of laziness and no drive to finish it... I've finally finished it!
Though it's completely de-railed from the original request, I like the way it turned out. Colors inspired by Saber from Fate/Stay Night.

Probably one of the last few frankens I'll release, since it's been ages between this one and my last one.
EDIT: Since the link I provided doesn't seem to want to link to the direct post, but the overall topic instead, I've decided to post the wall of text here for those who wish to read it.

Technical and Historical Notes:
A successor unit to the Bedivere design, based off of two failed blueprints originating from the time of the Missing Generation, and some time before the reformation of the Britannian Military after the death of Emperor Lelouch (Generally referred to as the Constantine and Constantine Mk. II, though they had no official name on paper). While the Bedivere was designed as a general successor to the Lancelot while featuring time-proven perfected technologies, the Constantine Mk. III goes farther by incorporating the latest in Aesir technologies with the know-how of Britannian engineering, creating a deadly ground-combat machine. While utilizing the general outline of the Bedivere, the Constantine Mk. III broke the general frame design and became it's own stand-alone model. The idea behind the Constantine Mk. III is "back to the basics", and the frame was built around such. It is a high-performance Knightmare Frame geared towards a ground combat specialty, so much so it has no need for float systems; the Constantine Mk. III doesn't come to it's enemies in the air... rather, they come to it, whether by choice or through force.
The Constantine Mk. III's primary focus was ground offense while having superior defense against modern anti-knightmare frame weapons. To that end, it employs the "Constantine Custom "Liftless" Weight-reduction and Enhancement System". While this system has its roots in float system development, its focus is directed elsewhere. The system cuts the weight of the Constantine Mk. III's body by more than half, giving it a base weight less than the 7th generation knightmare frame Vincent. It's extremely hefty weight is attributed to the synthetic metal material used to construct it's interior frame and armor; a thin but heavy material with strong durability. Suffice to say, anti-Knightmare Frame weapons of the past and present, especially ranged weapons, do little exterior harm; as such the only way to truly engage the Constantine Mk. III is in close combat. Even then, it's not a push-over; the system applied to reduce its weight can also be temporarily transferred when touched by the frame... as such, it can lift over twice it's body weight. This allows it to pick up and throw enemy Knightmares, which regain their base weight once losing contact with the Constantine Mk. III. This is only made possible due to a special muscle-style fiber wrapped around the Constantine Mk. III's arms, which tranfer the flow of energy from the liftless system to the hands.
When it comes to armaments, the Constantine Mk. III focuses more on deadly close combat weapons, but doesn't get shy of ranged equipment. The large shield-like weapons mounted to it's shoulders are actually giant slash harkens, which conceal extremely powerful MVS swords within. They can act as hand-held weapons, or as extremely long-range slash harkens with boosters, allowing them to change direction constantly in mid-flight and "hunt down" aerial enemies, entangling or penetrating them and dragging them down to the ground to be destroyed by the main body. It's primary hand-held weapon is a sword known as the Dyrnwyn, designed based on similar principles to the Galahad's Excalibur. When held by the Constantine Mk. III, a intensely focused blaze of particles engulfs the sword, allowing it to cut through weak barriers and physical objects with ease. It's only form of hand-held ranged armaments consists of an advanced LAPIS rifle (as used by the Edinburgh and Bedivere), which features three barrels instead of one, as well as a larger size design. It's body-mounted low-output hadron blasters are intended for close range rather than far, usually used in conjunction with the slash harkens; enemies are ensnared and pulled in close, then pelted to death by the hadron blasters.
A number of other minor technologies went into the production of the Constantine, mostly pilfered from data obtained from the remains of the Prototype Einherjar. This includes a Britannian-made version of the Einherjar's Sakuradite Turbine Amplifier. With the ultracompact reactor technology in their hands and the ability to amplify minor energy into major energy for prolonged operation times, the Constantine Mk. III can employ energy-consuming barriers that have become obsolete due to their high-energy cost. While it cannot produce similar effects to the Prototype Einherjar's amplifier, the technology quickly allowed the advancement of new and improved Yggdrasil superconductors, which are designed in a way that can easily replace the conductors in older generation models. The Constantine Mk. III has broken the mold imposed by energy shortages for military weapons, and as such has become a great symbol on the battlefield for Britannia as a high-performance machine not bound by modern military weapon limitations.
A Knightmare Frame produced a long time after the end of Emperor Lelouch's reign, when the Britannian Special Forces broke away from the country to form an independent nation hell-bent on restoring the nobility to power. The Bedivere is loosely descended from the Lancelot Albion, featuring most of the technologies developed for the frame and enhancing the features. Its Energy Wing Float System is integrated into the shoulders, and it features two large pile bunker-like arms infused with sakuradite, capable of easily punching through and blowing a Knightmare Frame into scrap metal by emitting hadron particles.
It did not help that the Bedivere was piloted by an extremely skilled and merciless pilot at the time; a Britannian Prince of quite the fame, who led an army of Edinburgh units through the battlefield and completely decimated the European Front, in order to expand his territory. The Bedivere became a bane to the Aesir Mercenary Forces aiding the EU on the front; many of its skilled pilots died at the hands of its raw close range offensive power; even the Prototype Einherjar, despite its powerful defensive capabilities, was blown away by this machine.
While the unit has been damaged considerably on several occasions, its durable build has prevented it from being completely annihilated, and with each repair it is further reinforced with updated technologies. In this regard, despite being a Ninth Generation model, at the hands of its pilot it can be said it's capable of taking on an Xth Generation Frame on equal standing.

My first ever attempt at creating a custom Knightmare Frame from the anime series Code Geass. I think I did a pretty decent job if I do say so myself.
The summarized backstory to this guy is basically that 50 years after the events of Code Geass, KMF technology has been at a standstill because of the lack of a need to use them. However, people begin competitively fighting with refurbished KMFs and a new sport is found in local KMF fighting tournaments. This knightmare in particular though, shares parts with an unknown KMF, found badly trashed under a heap of broken down units. It's restructured into the Vagabond Type 1. To differentiate it from the numerous other KMF's it fights with, the pilot engraves an "X" onto its chest, simply because in his opinion it looks cool.
Since I've started on this, I might as well say I do plan on making upgrades to it possibly until I can have a Type 2 and 3, all increasingly customized until I can get it as original as possible. Who knows when this will happen though.
Here we have the reason I pushed out the battle damaged Type 1 out without giving it my usual effort. I noticed a patter of each new franken I make usually being better than the last in terms of design and overall quality and here I'd say this is example of that. I'm very pleased with how this turned out and it just might make the beginning of me churning out even more Knightmare Frames if I don't run out of ideas.
Tech Specs: Model Number: GNX-609T-[GE] Model Name: GN-X Ground Enforcer Type Unit type: Experimental Ground Combat Mobile Suit Head height: 19.0 meters Overall weight: 71.1 metric tons Equipment: GN Tau Drive Armament: GN lance w/rifle x 1, GN vulcan gun x 2, GN claw x 2, Modified GN shield x 2, GN beam saber x 2, GN beam rifle x 1 Information: With the Reemergence of Celestial Being, A-Laws is forced to devote most of their forces to defeating the Gundam Meisters. With Katharon still waging war in the middle east the Earth Federation experiments with one of its proposed designs for a new GN-X model. The GN-X Ground Enforcer Type is completely devoted to ground combat, featuring a modified thruster system for more output at a more efficient rate, modified feet design for a GN-hovering effect providing speed and mobility, a heavier E-Carbon armor for extra protection, and two modified GN shields mounted on both shoulders providing even more protection. A suit designed specifically with countering Katharon in mind this GN-X proves to be a highly effective force against previous generation suits. With the higher cost to convert the GN-XIII to this variation and A-Laws dominating the federal budget only four Ground Enforcer Types are completed and put into service in the middle east.
Hmmm... Strange but lately i started uploading art of Knightmares before thy were showed in anime or games. Anyway This one is one of the first design of Lancelot. As you can see major difference is in coloring and some ornaments. Beside that it look the same as final version.
Another early version of knightmare design for Code Geass: Lost Colors game. This time Rai would pilot it if he chose Britannia Empire route. It doesn't look bad, but is still think that Lancelot club is way better than this one.
Here is my knight mare I made it take me a while, but it looks awesome,
it has claws and an tail that holds his sword. it was special ability to transform to a beast (which I will draw it later and also my pilot) you can see that he is on side of the Zero and his black Knights.
Britannian Force Development teams newest weapon. It is a seventh generation Knightmare Frame that was developed by Llyod. The ratio of sakuradite in the core luminous, the center of the Yggdrasil Drive (the source of power of Knightmare Frames), is high and that is where it gets its high combat skills. There are also various places in the body where sakuradite is used, and therefore surpasses the ability of the Knightmare Frames before it. However, because of this it restricts its pilot options. It is equipped with two SLASH-HARKENS and two FACT SPHERES. The MASER VIBRATION SWORD (MVS) equipped on the two sides of the cockpit slashes its prey using high-frequency oscillation. The VARIS (a rifle, short for Variable Ammunition Repulsion Impact Spitfire) can control the repulsion of its ammunition.
Constructed under the auspices of Prince Schneizel El Britannia, the IFX-V301 Gawain is a highly unusual Knightmare Frame. Larger and heavier than practically every Knightmare produced up to that point, the Gawain features many experimental technologies, most of which are incomplete at the time of its first deployment. Instead of the ejection block cockpit standard to Britannian Knightmares, the Gawain features a two-seater cockpit, though only one pilot was needed to operate the machine. As a result of its unorthodox design, it remains unknown if the Gawain even features such standard Knightmare technologies as the factsphere sensor camera. What it does include is the advanced tactical computer called the Druid system, the flight-capable Float system, and the powerful but uncontrollable hadron cannons. Initially, Schneizel plans on using the Gawain's Druid system to analyze the mysterious ruins found on Kaminejima Island, but his plans are disrupted when Zero and Kallen Stadtfeld of the Order of the Black Knights steal the Gawain in order to escape from the Britannians.
After returning to base, Zero has the Order's resident scientist Rakshata Chawla install a Gefjun Disturber, which regulates the hadron cannons' power as well as providing the Gawain with a degree of stealth. The Gawain becomes Zero's personal Knightmare, co-piloted by his partner C.C., the only Black Knight to know Zero's true identity as Lelouch Lamperouge. During the Black Rebellion, Lelouch comes under fire from Jeremiah Gottwald, enhanced by Britannia's Code R project and piloting the experimental Siegfried. In order to deal with the threat and allow Lelouch to rescue his abducted sister, C.C. pilots the Gawain solo and grapples with the Siegfried, pushing both machines to the bottom of the ocean. Over a year later, the Black Knights recover the ruined Gawain, and Rakshata uses whatever components she can recover to build the Black Knights' airship Ikaruga, as well as a new knightmare for Zero, the Shinkirou.
Knightmare Frame for an old Code Geass fanfic. this thing was supposed to be the personal Knightmare Frame of Emperor Charles, intended not so much for combat as for looming above the battlefield ominously so Chuckie D can give fascist fist-waving speeches. which is an obviously wise and necessary expenditure for an imperialist military superpower.
This will be the final update of this AS. Changes in this version are the following:
New GRAW-2 Monomolecular Cutter New 57mm Sniper Rifle (Now fold-able and can be mounted on the back) New set of Feet Remodeled Head, Back Hatch and Chest Added a Multipurpose Weapon Latch Overall height increased by 2%
