In late CE 73, ZAFT created a new series of advanced mobile suits to succeed their previous generation of Gundams, which were all lost in the previous war. Since the Treaty of Junius banned the military use of the Neutron Jammer Canceller, these new Gundams use conventional battery power instead. However, technological improvements over the last two years mean that battery efficiency is improved. One of these new suits was the Impulse, a multi-role unit similar in concept to the Earth Alliance’s old Strike. The Impulse was designed simultaneously with ZAFT’s new battleship Minerva, which includes a catapult exclusive to its use. Using this smaller catapult, the Impulse launches with its modules divided, while combining in flight.
The Impulse was initially piloted by Shinn Asuka, who was selected personally by PLANT Supreme CouncilChairman Gilbert Durandal. Shinn performed very well with Impulse, destroying over a dozen enemy warships, numerous mobile suits, and the stolen ZGMF-X31S Abyss. He even managed to defeat the ZGMF-X10A Freedom. After he received the new ZGMF-X42S Destiny, Impulse was reassigned to Lunamaria Hawke. Lunamaria first piloted the Impulse during Operation Ragnarök, the invasion of Heaven’s Base in Iceland, where it assists Shinn’s Destiny and Rey’s ZGMF-X666S Legend in defeating the base’s GFAS-X1 Destroy squad. Impulse was heavily damaged at the end of the Second Bloody Valentine War in the battle near Mobile Space Fortress Messiah byAthrun Zala‘s ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice, however it’s ability to regenerate proves it’s survival.
An additional four units of the Impulse were built during the course of the war. These four units were all equipped with θ Destiny Silhouette, with two suits being piloted by Mare Strode and Courtney Heironimus. Courtney Heironimus once explained that there are plans to fit ZGMF-X24S Chaos Gundam, ZGMF-X31S Abyss Gundam andZGMF-X88S Gaia Gundam with Core Splendor system, meaning that they are developed to collect data for new Silhouette Pack that would allow Impulse to have better performance in specific environment. Upon hearing this, Jess Rabble immediately imagines how ZGMF-X56S/δ Chaos Impulse Gundam, ZGMF-X56S/ε Abyss Impulse Gundam and ZGMF-X56S/ζ Gaia Impulse Gundam might look like. This plan seems to be abandoned by ZAFT later, most likely due to the theft.
