The Ghedo Vakka is a Knightmare Frame of the Kingdom of Zilkhstan, serving as the primary Knightmare unit of their forces. As a mass produced unit, the Ghedo Vakka's individual performance is not as powerful compared to the newer generation Knightmares of the Black Knights and the Britannians, instead relying on mass numbers and firepower to overwhelm the enemy.

Design and Specifications[]

With Zilkhstan being a minor faction in the world, the Ghedo Vakka's design philosophy differs from the Britannian, Europian and the Chinese Knightmares. At the same time, however, it incorporates some of the design elements from each nation. It bears the speed of the Gun-Ru, the firepower of the Hummel, and the flexibility of the Britannian humanoid KMFs.

The Ghedo Vakka's legs, while in standby mode, can be folded into compact form for ease of storage and transport. Its Cannons also possess great range and firepower, perfect for bombarding enemies from afar and its mobility from its four Landspinners ensures the Ghedo Vakka will be able to quickly change its location and get to safety if needed. Likely, it was designed to do this in the first place so as to be used in hit-and-run tactics. However, unlike the Gun-Ru and the Hummel, both of which possessed limited melee capacity, the Ghedo Vakka possesses two clawed arms which double as the unit's Slash Harken. In the hand of a capable pilot, the Ghedo Vakka can more than hold its own and defeat any enemy that might come close. It also possesses machine guns for anti-personnel use.

In addition to its impressive armaments, the Ghedo Vakka has another piece of equipment that greatly increases the KMF's overall effectiveness, that being an AR (Augmented Reality) headset which grants the pilot a perfect unrestricted view of the enemy and environment outside through the use of AR technology, a necessary tool to have because of the KMF's cramped cockpit and lack of visual as observed by Kallen Kōzuki when battling against Warden Bitool. The headset was most likely added in the later development stages of the Ghedo Vakka. This KMF also shown to possess two Factspheres, one in the front and one in the back.    

There is also a specialized custom unit variant based off the Ghedo Vakka called the Jarja Vakka, piloted by Shesthaal Forgnar.

Operational History[]

The Ghedo Vakka only appears in the 2019 movie Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection. In the Wailing Prison scene, several of these are deployed to apprehend C.C. and her team as they attempt to restore Lelouch. Two of these were commandeered by Kallen and Suzaku to engage the prison's guards and Warden Bitool. During the invasion of Zilkhstan at the finale of the movie, whole armies of these units appeared at multiple points. They were shown accompanying Bolvona Forgnar, Warden Bitool, and Shalio as they intercepted and battled Cornelia, Kallen, and Suzaku respectively. One was also taken by Shinichirō Tamaki and Kaname Ohgi as they infiltrated the country's capital, Gralbahd.

Trivia[]

  • Ghedo Vakka is strikingly resembles to the TK-53 CGS Mobile Worker from Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, another anime series created by Sunrise, Code Geass' Animator.
