Just love the look Suzaku had toward that newly painted Lancelot . He was really feeling bad for it.

Lancelot's new name:

"I dub thee Burning Lancelot!"

I still wonder why they reverted it back to its original specs. Why take out the extra shields?

Maybe working to make it easier for C.C. to pilot. Don't need the Spinzaku kick shields since she's unlikely to do that .

Because the Conquista and the original are two different machines. The Conquista is trashed. The original still works.

Site said they were the same machine. Otherwise why would they be attaching new arms to it in this ep?

Conquesta was fine. It just needed new arms and legs and minor repairs.

Probably because they had to paint them. They can't the the same machine, because the chest armor is different on the two models.

They modified it. That's why Suzaku didn't have it when he first started Ashford again in the beginning of the season. But it was the same machine. Only Albion was a different model.

That's more than a modification, that's a complete overhaul. They'll probably never explain it, but I'm still inclined to believe they're separate units.

Um, last I checked, in episode 6 it was called the Lancelot until the Conquista Unit was installed on top--therefore, the Lancelot Conquista is nothing more than Lancelot with perfected Float System and a Striker Pack.

It also has shields on the legs and chest, and the center portion of the chest is pointed while the original is flat like the one C.C. has painted pink.

I'm aware of the cosmetic differences, but it means nothing. Lancelot Air Cavalry and Lancelot Conquista are more or less the same units, otherwise Suzaku. Knightmare Frame construction is modular, its possible the original chassis for Air Cavalry was kept, and they just needed to plug spare parts into it to rebuild it. This new Lancelot is certainly a separate unit, but the Lancelot Air Cavalry and Lancelot Conquista are one and the same.

Yes but its still the same machine aside from a few extra shields. Compare that to Albion which is almost nothing like the original except the head. Note the changes to Guren throughout the show. It's still the same machine frame base. It's possble to modify frames.

That much I realize. I'm just saying that the difference in chest armor is more than cosmetic. It's not something that gets slapped on.

Which is why it took awhile.

Then again the chest could be part of the head unit like the Guren's was. So it could have just been slapped on. Since the chest was damaged in 18 they put the old one on since important frames apparantly have no spare parts in Geass.

Like I said, they'll probably never explain why she's using the original and not the improved version. All I know is Lloyd's previous assessment that the Core Luminous in the Conquista was in bad shape, and it didn't sound like repairs were possible. I figure they just dragged the old one out of storage.

Like I said spare parts don't exist for unique units in Geass. Since they had to turn Tristan into a Frankenstein mesh of Tristan Galahad and had to make do with it using the broken pieces of Excalibur as a weapon they obviously have no spare Conquesta parts. So they used the old ones.

In the end of R1, Lloyd and Cecile attached the spare parts for Lancelot to a Sutherland chassis.

Those were test parts, not spare parts.
