New set of KMF's! The Equitess F-Type and M-Type. Obviously standing for "Female Type" and "Male Type".
The M-Type Equitess is a mass production variant, forgoing all the F-Types stealth systems in favor of an integrated float system package in the thighs and more hardpoints for standard weapons. It's primarily rolled out to replace an aging line of Norn Mk. III's (A unit which is pretty much a 9th Generation Norn Mk. II, yet to be designed).
The F-Type Equitess is a single unit produced alongside to the M-Type, using the original blue print design for the Equitess model. Rather than an integrated float system, it sports a Justine-inspired "Black Wings" float system on its back (Sort of like a combination between a standard float system and the energy wing system), and the legs have been overhauled with powerful shock absorbers and new hydraulic systems to allow it to run as silently as possible across the ground.
It has a "candy-coating" layer of special nanomachines over its body that refract light when responding to a specific frequency, allowing it to become invisible to the naked eye. It also supports a heat collection and dispensing system on its back hardpoint that collects heat produced by the unit and storing it in a special container, allowing it to become invisible on infra-red sensors (Lasting for up to an hour, until it has to release that heat and appear as a big red blob on infra-red sensors).
It doesn't use Gefjun Disturbers for stealth like the Gawain, as in the storyline its from, they've been rendered useless due to the use of new anti-gefjun technology. Anyways, aside from slight aesthetic and internal changes between the two units, they share a lot of the same parts, though the F-Type sports a considerably higher performance grade than the M-Type despite the additional weight. The F-Type is piloted by an ex-stealth op officer from Britannia, who was thrown into an insane asylum for yet to be explained reasons, and is rather psychotic on the battlefield; even more so now that she can turn invisible and gorge herself on death to her hearts content.
This is a Franken designed by me and thus not an original, from-scratch creation, though it includes some original tweaks and parts in the design. Arts used belong to their original creators and not me.
