Kan "Early Type"

Post by Tachyon » Thu Jun 09, 2005 1:54 pm

I was wondering how much people here know about the mortar headd Kan Early Type. Is is a prototype that is later refined to make the Kan or is it an early model Kan that went into mass production before the final Kan. Perhaps it's just a Kan with different armor plating?

I'm asking because I want to add the Kan Early Type to the Kan page.

According to Knight Flags, Kan Early is what's called a "Pre-Mass production Model".
It was built for Major Revenheit to test this brand new MH design.

Because Empire Cornerra is a newly established dynasty MH Kan is their first and only homegrown MH.
It is based on the design principles of the LED Mirage, but essentially built from scratch.

So they hired an experienced HL like Revenheit to test it.
The two antennae sticking out of Kan Early's head are for transmitting test data.
It says the variation on the soulder and waist armors is Revenheit's preference.
Otherwise, Kan Early is almost identical to the final production Kan.

I see that you left the Meight info blank.
It's Dr. Walter Hudra. (Val-ter Hyuu-dra)
You can see her in April 2004, p.83
From what's on KF, it sounds like Kan was developed in a joint venture with a company called Otari.

extra
1. Episode Guide lists Gasten Colt as the Meight.
2. There is another MH called Roxanne, aka Kan Type A in the Cornerra fleet.
3. The Kan adopted by the GODS Knights of AKD is called Kan α.
4. You may already know this place, but a great place to get FSS data is http://www2.odn.ne.jp/ihatov/JIA/FSSlis ... .html#CONT (Some outdated infos)
