Technical and Historical Notes

 

The ZGMF-X56S/α Force Impulse Gundam is the ZAFT equivalent to the Earth Alliance's GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam. The Force Silhouette pack provides the Impulse Gundam with increased mobility in space, as well as atmospheric flight on Earth. The Force Silhouette pack is stored on the Minerva's dedicated hangar for the Impulse Gundam and is sent out onto the field via a computer-controlled Silhouette Flyer craft. The Flyer delivers the pack to the Impulse Gundam and automatically returns to the Minerva. The Force Silhouette pack docks with the Impulse Gundam via a laser lock. The only additional armament carried by the Force Silhouette pack is a pair of beam sabers.
