The Energy Wing System (エネルギーウィングシステム, Enerugī Uingu Shisutemu) was developed by the Camelot research group using data from the captured Guren Flight-Enabled Version as the basis for development. When the Energy Wing System was completed, the result was the creation of the first Ninth Generation Knightmare frame called the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. Eight Elements. It did not take long for the Britannians to equip the Energy Wing System into one of their own Knightmare Frames, the Lancelot Albion. Even when both of them are destroyed, the Energy Wing System will surely influence many new Knightmare Frame designs for years to come. The Energy Wing System, when activated, has a characteristic rippling effect that causes the air around the Knightmare Frame to create a ring of light that mimics the color of the the Knightmare Frame Energy Wing.
Design and DevelopmentEdit
The Energy Wing System is an improvement of the Air Glide System first developed by the Black Knight chief scientist Rakshata Chawla. The design was later perfected by Lloyd Asplund and Cecile Croomy of the Camelot research group, and installed into the captured Guren MK II Flight enabled version, upgrading it into the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. Hakkyokushiki. The only other Knightmare frames to have the Energy Wing System are the Lancelot Albion and an unnamed black Knightmare frame appearing in Code Geass R3.
The theory of the Energy Wing system is that upon oscillating the blaze luminous wings from the base, high speed movement could be achieved. This results in clear afterimages due to the aerodynamic ignoring properties of the system.
The Energy Wing System performs marvelously in combat, enabling the user to destroy multiple enemies in a short amount of time. The Guren S.E.I.T.E.N Hakkyokushiki performed high speed movements and manoeuvres during the Second Assault on Tokyo Settlement when it destroyed the Valkyrie Squadron and defeated Luciano Bradley, a member of the Rounds, without trouble. Lancelot Albion, which has the same technology, showcases the ability to fire crystalline projectiles from its energy wings, easily destroying three Knight of Rounds and their personal forces during the Uprising
It is hinted that the number of "wings" a Knightmare wields, would define its unique power/ability. The Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. Hakkyokushiki, which has four wings, has extreme speed while the Lancelot Albion, which has three wings, is capable of shooting crystalline projectiles from its wings.
