Prior to the start of the Second Bloody Valentine War in C.E. 73, ZAFT introduced the New Millennium series mobile suits in the postwar era, starting with the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior. The next mobile suit in the series was the ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited. The prototype version, designated X2000, introduced several new features. Unlike the ZAKU series, the GOUF (Guardian of Unity Forerunner) Ignited did not use interchangeable Wizard packs and was instead equipped with a flight pack that functioned in Earth’s atmosphere or in space. The GOUF Ignited was armed with a pair of 4-barrel beam guns, a beam sword and a two whip-like heat rod that can deliver electrical shocks. During the developmental phase of the GOUF Ignited, ZAFT also produced a close combat variant, the ZGMF-X2000CQGB&S GOUF Crusher. One orange-colored GOUF Ignited prototype was used by FAITH pilot Heine Westenfluss, who was assigned to the battleship Minerva by PLANT Supreme Council Chairman Gilbert Durandal. Heine was killed in action in a battle at the Dardanelles channel by Stella Loussier’s ZGMF-X88S Gaia Gundam.
