They gave it to Vincent, but when you're working with Lloyd I'd have to wonder if he has the mindset of 'If Lancelot gets destroyed what would be the point to Suzaku anymore. Might as well leave it and spend the money on more float packs instead' >_>

Think the net was specially developped for the Lancelot though

Not really, the radiation wave is a weapon first and foremost, I think it's just because Anya and Gino's Knightmare's are so tough they managed to stave it off. But put this in combination with the Gefjun Net against say a battalion of Sutherlands and you'll have four words; fish in a barrel

radiation blast:
-mid-range attack
-only a momentary burst of energy
-Guren can't use the arm for anything else while performing it

G-Net:
-long-range attack
-is an ongoing effect
-can be used in conjunction with a standard radiation wave attack.

clearly you can see that despite having a similar effect, their specifications make it so they don't particularly overlap.

What exactly was it that Anya shot out from her knightmare when Kallen stepped on her?

Small missiles?

I seem to recall them being listed as missile launchers on the official profile or some such, so yeah, more likely than not.

Were they Hadron infused missles or something? Is that possible?

Oh, right. Hmm, is it possible we might see cloaking technology in the future? Or do we have that and I'm just forgetting about it?

Are there any further weapons or upgrades we haven't seen yet that could be possible?

Cloaking technology, if it shows up in a mecha shw, generally had to be heavily nerfed. Not the least because the audience isn't interested in seeing (or not seeing, as the case may be) two invisible Knightmares fighting.

If it appears, the tech is almost always restricted to outside of combat.

Nukes.


I would say that having nukes will seriously empower whoever has it until the rest of the world develops it.


Also add in ECS, the Palladium Reactor, and the Lambda Driver (Full Metal Panic!)

Well, I was mainly thinking of it's use in stealth missions or surprise attacks which seem something Lelouch might do. Still, you are right that it's uses would be limited in a show like this.

Given Nina, I think we'll see Britannia pull something off quite soon though it certainly isn't a good thing.

Since it seems Nina has been making progress, I'd say we should see something in the second half and I bet that when they are used an important character will die.

Hmm, those things could be new developments as well though they would already have to be in development. Maybe we'll see something on some of the new projects going on soon.

Yeah, at worst, maybe at the end of it, we'll see Nina make some nukes that she drops on Japan saying "BWAHAHAHA! BECOME DUST DAMMNED ELEVENS AND ZERO!"

Perhaps.


I do find it interesting that she's Nina Einstein.

That would suck. I could imagine Schneizal ordering the use of nukes on the Order as a way to test them.

I believe that it was intentional for her to have that name. She may very well be related to the Albert Einstein of the CG world, though he didn't become the great scientist he was in our timeline.

And there has been evidence in season 1 that she was researching nuclear technology and given her new position, she has probably made great gains in her research.

Or the EU. Or the Chinese. Or the japanese/the order indeed. And, yes, it would suck, but that may well be the way it becomes...

Yeah, her name clearly foreshadows the possible coming of the atomic bomb in the Code Geass universe... well, it isn't for certain - but well see what happens...

Given that Britannia is the one with the scientist actually experimenting with nuclear technology, I would think she would be the first to come up with such a thing. Of course, Lakshata could always do something too I guess.

The introduction of nukes would certainly have effects within the power system. I'd have to wonder how other groups would respond.
