Technical and Historical Notes

 

As its name implies, the GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam is designed for a sole purpose: massive destruction. At more than triple the height of the average mobile suit, the Destroy Gundam is closer to a mobile fortress than a mobile suit. Nearly every part of the Destroy Gundam is equipped with a weapon. Armaments include head cannons, detachable arm cannons, chest cannons, missile launchers and a positron reflector shield. When transformed into attack mode, additional armaments include two high-energy beam cannons, and the backpack is lined with 20 beam cannons. At least ten Destroy Gundam units are built for use by Logos, the secret organization that controls the Earth Alliance. The first unit, used by artificially enhanced Extended pilot Stella Loussier, is sent to destroy Berlin in retaliation for Europe sympathizing with ZAFT. That unit is destroyed by Kira Yamato's ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam, but only after heavy damage is inflicted upon Berlin. Soon after, ZAFT initiates Operation Ragnarok and attacks Heavens Base, the Alliance's supreme headquarters in Iceland. Five Destroy Gundam units launch to protect the base, but they are all destroyed in combat by Minerva Gundam pilots Shinn Asuka, Rey Za Burrel and Lunamaria Hawke. A Destroy Gundam is also used by an Orb pilot working under the command of the Phantom Pain unit, but it's destroyed by Ergnes Brahe's MMF-JG73L Turn Δ. Later, after the Requiem cannon destroys several PLANTs, ZAFT attacks the Alliance's Daedalus lunar base and is again confronted by three more Destroy Gundam units, which are destroyed by Shinn and Rey.
