ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam is a mobile suit secretly developed by ZAFT Forces and was designed to work in conjunction with their newest flagship, the Minerva. The Impulse was originally assigned to ace pilot Shinn Asuka, but after upgrading to the Destiny Gundam, it was handed down to fellow pilot, Lunamaria Hawke. Based on the Earth Alliance's old Strike Gundam, the Impulse functions as a multi-purpose combat mobile suit, equipped with special "Silhouette" packs that grant it special armaments and abilities, depending on the situation. These new mission packs also cause the machine's Phase Shift color to change as well.
The Force pack grants it the familiar colors and is based wholly on the Strike's Aile pack, giving it greater speed and mobility along with atmospheric flight capabilities. The Sword pack gives it a red color and comes with two large anti-ship swords that can be connected at the pommels to form a polearm as well as two beam boomerangs. The Blast pack gives it a black and green coloration and comes with a number of long-range weapons including beam cannons and missile launchers as well as a retractable beam javelin. The Impulse's frame was built on a new Core system that separates the machine into three different components that can be assembled during battle and even swap out damage parts for spares. This, along with a new Deuterion energy recharging function, allows the Impulse to continue fighting by recharging and replacing used parts.
