The Chinese Federation VTOL Gunship serves the same role as its Britannian Counterpart, which is to provide aerial combats and air support to the ground troops. Manufactured by the Chinese Federation and used by its military the Gunship also managed to found its way in the hands of other.
During the Invasion of Kyushu the Japanese Forces led by the exiled former minister Atsushi Sawasaki. Deployed Federation Gunships and ground forces around Fukuoka Base to create an impenetrable perimeter around it. Even causing Cornelia great frustration when planning to retake the base, that is until the intervention of Avalon.
During Season 2, episode 6 the Black Knights found other uses for the Gunship and used it as a limited form of air taxi for its Knighmare Frames, during its mission to rescue Governor Nunnally from General Upson's forces. During episode 10 the Gunships were also deployed by the Eunuchs council to "rescue" Empress Tianzi from Zero, but failed to do so.
DescriptionThe Gunship featured a single dorsal Ventral cannon, two rocket pods on its wings and a bubble cockpit. It is among the two Gunship that made an appearance in the series. The Gunship is the only one seen that can also be used in a utility role which is to carry its Knightmare Frames into combat, probably as the group's answer to the Britannian VTOL Carrier, albeit a limited one. While being used in an "air-lift" mode though the Gunship cannot make any sudden maneuver because it is weight-down by the Knightmare Frame it carrying, causing it to be vulnerable.
