W0X Type-01 Alexander
Prototype Generation Knightmare Frame
The Wyvern Has Landed
The Alexander (アレグサンダー, Aregusandā), a new Knightmare Frame, has the concept art of an unusual-looking Knightmare Frame, whose appearance suggests Sixth Generation or later. It is a special operations model used by the secret "W-0" unit of the E.U. army and was developed by Captain Anna Clement. The Alexander has been employed exclusively by Eleven soldiers so far and one of these Knightmare Frames was piloted by Akito Hyuga. It is an unusual Knightmare Frame that uses a hybrid mode of movement. Alexander can quickly shift between standard landspinners, bipedal mode, and a quadrupedal mode depending on the situation.
Design and DevelopmentEdit
Completely unlike the Knightmare Frames used by the Holy Britannian Empire and the Black Knights, the Alexander is a high-spec Knightmare frame that utilizes original technology developed by its designer, Anna Clement. With a specialized "Insect Mode" transformation mechanism, a light-weight body and a high-performance frame, its mobility vastly surpasses that of the E.U.'s Panzer-Hummel and most other Knightmare Frames. The cockpit block is on its back, but it isn’t equipped with a Cockpit Ejection System, because the actual battlefield forces of the E.U.’s special-ops unit “W-0”, the former Japanese (Elevens), aren’t counted as a loss in fighting strength even if they are killed in battle. Its armaments consists of two WAW-04 “Judgement” 30mm Linear Assault Rifles which can be either handheld or attached to sub-arms on either side of the cockpit, two fixed "Uruna Edge" (ウルナエッジ) knifes that are stored underneath the wrists of the Alexander and are capable of piercing through the armor of Knightmares, and two spike-shaped Tonfas that are attached to the arms and are handheld in use.
In the real world, this mechanical Knightmare Frame was designed by Akira Yasuda.
The Alexander Type-02, a variation of the Alexander, is a mass produced Knightmare Frame used in the Special Forces Unit "W-0." These Knightmares are piloted by Leila Malkal, Ryo Sayama, Yukiya Naruse, and Ayano Kosaka from the "W-0" group, each with a customized feature (a sword for Ayano,...)
- Landspinner Propulsion System
- "Insect Mode" transformation mechanism
- Sub-arms (stored on each side of the cockpit)
- 2x WAW-04 30mm Linear Assault Rifles “Judgement” (can be mounted on sides of cockpit)
- 2x fixed Uruna Edge knives (stored within arm shaft)
- 2x stake-shaped Tonfas (stored on arms, handheld in use)
The Alexander might be named after Alexander the Great of Mecedonia, son of king Phillip.
