MS-14BR are MS-14B with removed calve armor and better thrusters installed. 2 were built and sent to A Bao Qu and a MS-14B was converted from spare parts to make a third(guessing this one is Vincent's). 2 of these belonged to the Chimera corps and survived the oyw apeearing in MSV-R Return of Johnny. No aspect of MS-14C in it's design, the beam rifle over the shoulder, is just a beam rifle mounted on the backpack(can't be fired from that position).

ZII: The same unit that was deployed during the Neo Zeon conflict, which is a nod to Mirage of Zeon.

Geara Doga: An early deployment machine.

Efreet Schneid: The fifth machine out of the original eight produced. It has been passed down to various pilots through the ages and as of 0096, being Brett's unit, it is equipped with kunais to match his fighting style.

It still says トーリスリッター, which no way no how equates to "Todesritter". We haven't been able to match this to a German word yet, but that just means we need to keep looking.

And suddenly my middle school German comes in handy! My best guess at the name would be "Töllesritter". As noted, "Ritter" means knight, while "Tölles" can mean either crazy/wild/mad or amazing/fantastic, but since it possesses the EXAM-like HADES System I'm leaning towards the former. So "Mad Knight", a pretty apt name all things considered.

Can't "ritter" also mean "rider", to parallel "Pale Rider"? Or is that "reiter"?

"Reiter" is indeed the German word for a rider, while "Ritter" specifically refers to an armored knight; all three words actually derive from the same origin word, the Old English "ridere", which means both "one who rides" and a mounted warrior.

It's definitely "Ritter" in this case. "Reiter" is written ライター in kana, so whatever the name means, it's a knight not a rider.

As for the first word, I think the kana トー would correspond to a German "to", rather than "tö" with an umlaut (which would be written テ). For example, "toten" is written トーテン, while the verb "töten" is written テーテン.

At this rate, I think the best option may simply be to wait and see if they publish the actual name in Romanji at some point. We don't seem to be having much luck guessing at it.

I figured the "tö" was the best translation for the long vowel sound in トー, but I readily admit I could be wrong. Probably better to check with someone whose German isn't 16 years outdated. :P

It's more a question of the conventions used in transliterating German to Japanese, which are pretty hard to guess even with a grasp of both languages. But for all that, they seem to be quite consistent; this brief kana-to-German translation chart is pretty handy if you ever need to do this sort of thing. :-)

Really bizarre. Surely one of these - the kana or the Romanji - must be a typo.

So looking at it more closely i don't think the todesritter has traditional incoms at all, rather the tri-blades from driessen it has are connected to those back fins they're docked in by a wire. This could be a means to have a multiple vector melee weapon, at the very least make the tri-blades re-useable

It appears that the AMX-018 has replaced the Breda.

On another note, AMX-004G/AMX-017 is for the MP Qubeley, but AMX-017 also refers to the G Generation original Gigantic.

The Tri-Blades are indeed the Incoms for Todesritter. Pale Rider space configuration has model number RX-80PR/S.

Well, I wouldn't be that sure, since the linked page makes a few other questionable assumptions.
For instance (besides a couple of weird German transliterations) it lists an otherwise unknown version of Jagd Doga for Nanai labeled MSN-05, and has as Axis or Neo Zeon models the two Xekus.
Moreover, as far as I know, the Breda (also spelled as Bread or Bredda) is correctly labeled PMX-005 or YPKW-006, depending on teh version at issue...
But perhaps I'm going off-topic!

Spoiler
Show
-Pilot of the Pale Rider is a loli named Chloe. She still pilots the Todesritter
-UC 0090 is about destroying Glemy's remnants. Annerose appears in red rebuilt Queen Mantha with Marchosias emblem on the chest. Queen and Todes destroy each other but the pilots escape. Vincent has a child with Chloe, Travis is engaged to Annerose.
-Yuu heards Marion while pushing Axis.

This game's production values are seriously lacking outside the main campaigns and Blue Destiny. Like, wow guys, put some effort in so your game doesn't look like a machinima.
