General Notes

Jean-Claude du Lione's CCF-09V Veillantif combat frame emerged from the Battle of Kisangani victorious but severely damaged. The Nouvelle French monarch resolved to not just repair his prized dueling CF, but to use the occasion for upgrading its already high performance.

Adding a second pair of circulating heat blade-edged wings doubled Veillantif's offensive and defensive power on its rear arc. The extra wings also increased stability and maneuverability in flight. To offset the additional weight, Jean-Claude installed two more rocket thrusters, plus four more maneuvering thrusters for an overall speed increase. Zeklov technicians improved upon Veillantif's already powerful generator with a cutting-edge reactor approaching the prototype series XSeed threshold.

Zeklov christened their latest masterwork the CCF-09V-2 Veillantif Kai. Jean-Claude simply continued calling his trusty war mount by its original name. Arming his dueling CF with its trademark heat rapier, shield, and heat whip, he resumed his vigil against all threats to Nouvelle France.

One of which would come in a form he did not expect.

Brutal mech action!


  1. Been waiting for this one for a while. Beautiful to see. It looks like a phoenix, really. And mechs are just plain better with swords. Looks like it would be at home dancing on the battlefield, which fits the actual use exactly.

    Also looking forward to the Emancipator/Eisenpferd mashup.
