Technical and Historical Notes

 

In C.E. 71, ZAFT unveiled its revolutionary DRAGOON (Disconnected Rapid Armament Group Overlook Operation Network) system in two mobile suits: the YMF-X000A Dreadnought Gundam and ZGMF-X13A Providence Gundam. Unfortunately, the DRAGOONs utilized by these two units could only be controlled by pilots with high spatial awareness. However, in late C.E. 73, ZAFT introduced the ZGMF-X666S Legend Gundam, an upgrade of the original Providence Gundam design. The Legend Gundam featured a new quantum communication system that allowed normal pilots to control the DRAGOONs. The Legend Gundam features two types of DRAGOONs, also used by the ZGMF-X3000Q Providence ZAKU. Two beam spike DRAGOONs mounted on top of the backpack were capable of piercing the positron reflector shields used by Earth Alliance mobile armors. Eight general type DRAGOON units were stored on the backpack and waist armor. The Legend Gundam was also equipped with a pair of wrist-mounted "Solidus Fulgor" beam shield generators, which are also used by the ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam. The Legend Gundam's armaments were rounded out by a pair of head vulcans, beam javelins and a high-energy beam rifle. The Legend Gundam's systems were powered by a hyper deuterion nuclear reactor, a violation of the Junius Treaty. This new design stored power in deuterion form, providing a continuous deuterion charge and, in theory, an endless power supply. However, it was possible for the suit's power to be expended before the reactor could replenish it.

 

The Legend Gundam was initially assigned to FAITH pilot Athrun Zala by PLANT Supreme Council Chairman Gilbert Durandal. However, after Athrun defected from ZAFT and escaped from the Gibraltar Base, it was reassigned to Durandal loyalist Rey Za Burrel. Soon after, the Legend Gundam played an important role in ZAFT's Operation Ragnarok, an attack on the Alliance's Heavens Base headquarters. Rey, along with Destiny Gundam pilot Shinn Asuka and ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam pilot Lunamaria Hawke, destroyed five GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam units guarding the base, paving the way for a ZAFT victory. The Legend Gundam also participated in Operation Fury, an attack on the Orb Union intended to root out Logos leader Lord Djibril. When Djibril escaped to space and fired the Requiem cannon at the PLANTs, the battleship Minerva returned to space and launched an attack on the Alliance's Daedalus lunar base. During the battle, Rey destroyed two Destroy Gundams as well as the battleship Girty Lue, killing Djibril. Later, when an Orb space fleet attacked ZAFT to seize control of Requiem, Rey engaged Kira Yamato's ZGMF-X20A Freedom Gundam. Rey, a defective clone like Rau Le Creuset, was momentarily confused by Kira's statement that his life was his own. During this moment of confusion, the Legend Gundam was heavily damaged by Kira. Rey then flew to the space fortress Messiah, where he fatally shot Durandal. Soon after, the damaged fortress crashed into the Moon, destroying the Legend Gundam and killing Rey.
