A completely radical type of weapon made by combining multiple Knightmare Frames, the Raikō (雷光, lit. Lightning) is a special type of armament that the Japanese resistance makes use of. The Raikō was originally developed by the Japan Liberation Front as a heavy siege weapon.

Design and Specifications[]

A massive coilgun built from four Glasgows or the Burais variants. It fires a type of canister shot: a high-velocity shell which releases two-dozen steel ball bearings that can tear through Knightmare Frames, as well as most other targets with ease. The four Knightmares are arranged along both sides of the cannon for support, and their heads are attached to a circular disc on the top of the cannon for a 360-degree field of view. The cockpits of the two Knightmares on each side are linked to create a two-seater cockpit.

In addition to the main cannon, the arm on the open side of each Knightmare is replaced with a linkable cannon, creating four secondary cannons in case the main cannon fails to destroy the target.

Operational History[]

Only two of them are used in the series, the first by the Japan Liberation Front in the Japanese Liberation Front Hotel Incident and the second by the Black Knights during the Assault on Tokyo Settlement. However, both were destroyed by Suzaku Kururugi.
