Copy Production Fourth Generation Knightmare Frame
The Burai (無頼, Burai) is a remodeled version of the Glasgow manufactured by the Kyoto House and used by the Black Knights and the Japan Liberation Front. It is basically the same as a Glasgow, except for the head, which has fang-like cheekbones which give the appearance of an oni. It also features a torso-mounted antipersonnel machine gun. Its hands have also been refurbished so that they can guard, a feature exclusive to the Burai. Lelouch pilots a customized unit with a red head module and golden horns resembling those on a samurai's helmet. Like the Sutherland, variants exist including close combat and electronic warfare types.
Design and Specifications
Though Japan was easily conquered by the Holy Britannian Empire, its surrender was forced by the sudden death of Prime Minister Genbu Kururugi at a point when the military was still eager to fight. As a result, even seven years after when the renamed Area 11 is firmly under Britannian control, the region was a hotbed of resistance as former soldiers and Japanese nationals fought back as best they could. One method of resistance was provided by the Kyoto House, a group of Japanese industrialists who fund and support anti-Britannia groups in secret. Using their resources, the Kyoto House constructed the Type-10R Burai, a Knightmare Frame heavily cannibalized from the RPI-11 Glasgow. The biggest changes to the Glasgow's design were the addition of a samurai-styled head and protectors, small shield-like bracers that allow the Burai to defend against enemy attacks. Initially developed for the Japanese Liberation Front, the Burai was later sent to the rising Order of the Black Knights, with one customized unit piloted by Zero, the Order's mysterious masked leader.
