RP-11 Glasgow

Rpi 11

Production Data

Influenced by the success of the Ganymede prototype, the Holy Britannia Empire begins researching the use of Knightmare Frames as combat weapons. The fruit of their labor is the RPI-11 Glasgow, the first combat-capable Knightmare. Building upon the foundation laid out by the Ganymede, the Glasgow relies upon its small, light frame and landspinners for high-speed combat, allowing it to outflank ground forces such as tanks and APCs. The Glasgow also introduces the slash harken, a wired projectile weapon that can double as a grappling hook, or be used to help the Knightmare descend from aerial transports safely, and becomes standard equipment in all Knightmares thereafter. The effectiveness of the Glasgow is proven when it’s deployed during Britannia’s invasion of Japan. The Glasgow’s participation makes the brief war a complete route, allowing Britannia to easily take over the island nation, which is then renamed Area 11. Seven years after the invasion, the Glasgow is still seen as venerable, but outdated, and is slowly phased out of production in favor of the newer RPI-13 Sutherland. Many units are refitted into police-use.
