The TQ-19 Gun-Ru was a 4th-generation Knightmare Frame originally designed and produced by the Chinese Federation as their mainstray forces. In TNB, however, the old frame is now retired and is no longer produced. Many Gun-Rus are still actively used, however, for terrorists acts by various anti-government groups.
The same as the original in the anime. The coloring varies depending on the group.
Larger than its Britannian counterparts, the Gun-Ru's body was dome-shaped and painted green or red with smaller legs and manipulators that fold into the body, giving it an almost frog-like appearance. The Gun-Ru's armament consisted of a pair of machine guns and a pair of cannons, mounted on the shoulders of the main unit. Unlike other Knightmare Frames it does not feature a cockpit ejection system, requiring entry and exit from the front. Though much weaker than Britannian Knightmares, the Gun-Ru's were cheaper to produce, allowing the Chinese and later various terrorist organizations to rely upon the strength of numbers when using them.

In an attempt to match the effectiveness of Britannian Knightmare Frames, the Chinese Federation designed the Gun-Ru, which were weaker than cheaper to mass-produce than other Knightmares. The Federation deployed the frame in various conflicts and battles, included the attempted invasion of Japan in 2017 a.t.b., where the vast numbers of Gun-Ru managed to match up against Britannia's Sutherlands. Even in 2018, when the frame was easily becoming outclassed by new Knightmares such as Britannia's Vincent Ward and the Black Knights' Akatsuki, the Gun-Ru was still used in large numbers by the factions of the dissolved Chinese Federation and the Black Knights.
After Britannia's entrance into the UFN, however, the Gun-Ru was quickly phased out of production as the Black Knights added both the Vincent and Akatsuki frames to their forces, thereby removing the need for any 5th-generation or below models. However, many Gun-Rus are still used by terrorist groups who oppose the current order throughout the world, particularly in regions within Asia. It is believed that these groups obtained their frames from black market military contractors who continue to produce the frame for money despite the ban on all military industry.
