One of the new ZAFT mobile suits. The impulse has similar features to GAT-X105 Strike. As such it can equip different armament.
The Impulse Gundam was designed to improve on the original Strike Gundam (multiple weapon systems) but utilized an in field deployment system that the Strike did not have. Shinn Asuka quickly mastered the ability to deploy any (and often) multiple systems at one time. The Gundam itself is made up of three parts, the Core Splendor (the ship that houses the cockpit), Leg Flyer (leg units) and Chest Flyer (upper body). If any part of the leg or chest flyers are destroyed (save for a fatal blow to the main body), Shinn (and later Lunamaria) could eject it and summon replacement flyers (as Shinn did in his battle against the Freedom Gundam).
Force: The most used weapon pack is a flight pack that gives the user increased speed, agility and flight. No additional weapons accompany this Silhouette.
Sword: A back pack that when attached alters the Strike's blue armor to red. This is a close combat weapon pack and provides the user with two anti-ship beam swords and two beam boomerangs.
Blast: A weapons pack that alters the majority of the blue armor to green. Equipped with missles, long range beam cannons, rail cannons and a beam javelin.
