The Bradford (ブラッドフォード, Buraddofōdo) is an experimental transformable Knightmare Frame developed as the prototype for the personal and dedicated Knightmare Frame of the Knight of Three, Gino Weinberg. It was designed by the Steiner Konzern, a conglomerate run by the Steiner family, an engineering noble family that served the Weinberg family. For the sake of obtaining operational data for its successor, the Tristan, the Bradford is assigned to the Glinda Knights soon after their return from Béjaïa. Its initial test pilot is Marika Soresi, before it is given over to Leonhardt Steiner, the heir of the Steiner family.

Design and Development[]

Developed for the purpose of obtaining air superiority among Knightmares, the Bradford is the first Knightmare to utilize the transformable "Fortress Mode" function with the ability to transform into a fighter jet. However, because the Float System has yet to be generalized and mass-produced, it is instead equipped with an electric-powered plasma propulsion motor for flight. Like most Glinda Knights Knightmares, it has a red and gold colour scheme, and its overall design is very similar to the Tristan's. Also like the Tristan, it is equipped with two giant "Megiddo Harkens" on its arms, which it can launch in both Knightmare and Fortress mode. It also has two specialized weapons known as "Dual Arms" attached to its legs, which can be used as hand-held and combinable Tungsten Steel Blades in Knightmare mode, and Linear Cannons in Fortress Mode. It is also equipped with a weapon based on the Hadron Cannon known as the "Hadron Spear", which is activated by the Bradford firing and combining its Megiddo Harkens, which gathers a sphere of energy in the space between the Harkens and then fires it as a straight Hadron beam that extends for very long ranges.

The Bradford also has the ability to dock with the back of the Lancelot Grail in "Direct Link" mode, thereby forming a combined Knightmare known as the Grail Air Cavalry. It can do the same with the Vincent Gram and become the Gram Air Cavalry.

Variants[]

Grail Air Calvary

Z-01/T+ RZX-3F7 Grail Air Cavalry

Grail Air Cavalry[]

A combined Knightmare formed from the Bradford (in Fortress Mode configuration) docking to the back of the Lancelot Grail in "Direct Link" mode, designated as the Z-01/T+ RZX-3F7 Grail Air Calvary. In this form, the Lancelot acts as the main unit while Bradford serves as a support pack, directly connecting the Yggdrasil Drives of both frames and giving the Lancelot Grail the ability to fly. The linkage between the two frames is performed by automatic guidance. Unfortunately, the Lancelot Grail's "Schrötter Steel Sword" rack must be unequipped in this form, but in exchange the Lancelot Grail can utilize the weapons of the Bradford, including:

  • 2x exclusive-use Dual Arms (Knightmare mode: combinable Tungsten Steel Blade, Fortress Mode: Linear Cannon)
  • 2x "Megiddo Harken"
  • Hadron Spear (formed by the combination of the 2 Megiddo Harkens)
