[b]Technical and Historical Notes[/b]

Build alongside the Blaster Matey, the Knight Matey was designed to test the feasibility of having remotely operated Mateys, controlled by a command unit. Patterned after an olden days knight and his squires, the Knight Matey made an imposing figure on the battlefield. Because the Squires were designed to provide most of the Knight Matey's offense, it's armour was made considerably thick and sturdy, to keep the command unit well protected. When the prototypes were completed, the project was canceled for some unknown reason, and the Knight Matey was sealed away.

Many years later, a MRC cell under the control of Colin Vong discovered the Knight Matey and it's Squires. Colin claimed the Knight Matey for his own, and later took it into operations against the 51st Combined Arms Regiment. It was eventually destroyed by the R-Matey, killing Colin Vong.
