Following the creation of the Z-01 Lancelot, the Britannian Special Technical Dispatch used leftover parts from its development along with the base of an RPI-13 Sutherland to create a second Seventh Generation knightmare frame. This machine, designed to be the Lancelot’s sister unit, was formally dubbed RZX-7 Lancelot Club (or simply “Club” for short). Due to budgetary concerns, the Club lacked the Sakuradite-heavy frame of its sibling; though its performance was lower than the Lancelot’s, it was still superior to the Sutherland. Furthermore, the Club could make use of a “sniper mode” which, combined with its VARIS rifle, gave it exceptional accuracy. Elements of the Lancelot Club, including the lance-type MVS and the shoulder-mounted factspheres, would be applied to the mass production version of the Lancelot, the RPI-212 Vincent.
