Notorious arms manufacturer Zeklov Corporation realized Eckhart’s vision beyond his wildest expectations. Taking the Nouvelle French dueling combat frame CCF-09V Veillantif as a starting point, Zeklov sought to create a German analogue that would embody the Teutonic fighting spirit. Whereas Veillantif was quick and agile, excelling at hit-and-run tactics, the new unit would be built for power and toughness while being capable of making bursts of speed to close with and demolish opponents.
Following his design principle of refashioning Gallic concepts in a Germanic mold, Zeklov armed the new CF with a massive two-handed sword. As a final touch, he lined the blade with a rotating chain set with superheated teeth. The resulting weapon delivered equal amounts of crushing, burning, and slicing damage to anything foolish enough to stand in its way. Enhanced arm servos allowed the CF to wield this giant weapon with startling speed. A retractable punching heat dagger was installed in the bracers mounted on each forearm as backup weapons. Finally, an advanced ECM suite was installed to confound ranged weapons’ targeting systems and allow the CF time to get in close for the kill.
In terms of standard ground and air speed, the new CF performed only slightly better than a CF-06 Grenzmark II. However, additional booster rockets were installed on the unit’s legs, allowing short bursts of speed in excess of Mach 2. Opponents deceived by the CF’s bulky appearance found themselves caught off-guard when the Zweihänder-swinging combat frame charged into melee range in the blink of an eye.
Zeklov assigned his new creation the model number CCF-017K and presented it to Eckhart, who christened the centerpiece of his new CF force the Kurfürst after the prince-electors of old. The Kurfürst would receive its first live combat test in CY 2 when Wehrbund Bavaria made its move against rogue Coalition Governor Ronson Troy.
