Technology & Combat Characteristics
Used by Mahiru in the 14th Gunpla Battle Japanese U-19 Championship, the Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification) is one of two modified ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam Gunpla used by the Song Dynasty Vase Team. The team's other Impulse Gundam based Gunpla is the Impulse GM wktk Custom, both Impulse GM do not contain the original Impulse Gundam's Core Splendor or its modular body design. Both Impulse GM shares the same basic body structure but have different head and backpack design. The Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification) has a G-Bit type head, and a backpack with small rectangular thrusters and a small downwards pointing fin. In addition, both Impulse GM use the same kind of handheld weapons, but they differ in their design. To support the YMS-15KRT02 Gyancelot in battle, both Impulse GM have a unique feature where their backpack can detached and combined with their handheld weapons into a large flying mecha known as the 'The Northern Pod' that can be used to ram enemy Gunplas.
- MMI-GAU25A 20mm CIWS
- Like the origin Impulse Gundam, the Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification) mounts two CIWS guns in its chest to shoot down incoming missiles or enemy units at close range.
- M71-AAK "Folding Razor" Anti-Armor Knife
- The Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification) retains the pair of "Folding Razor" Anti-Armor Knife that are stored in the original Impulse Gundam's side skirt armor.
- Beam Rifle
- The Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification)'s main ranged weaponry. This beam rifle has the same grip design as the Impulse GM wktk Custom's beam rifle but the barrel design is different, it has a larger rectangular barrel.
- The Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification)'s main defensive weaponry. It is a handheld, kite-shaped like shield.
Special Equipment & Features
- The Northern Pod
- The backpack and handheld weaponry (the shields and the beam rifles' grip part) of the Impulse GM wktk Custom and Impulse GM (Mahiru Specification) can detach from their respective Gunplas and combine into a large flying mecha known as 'The Northern Pod'. The Northern Pod can surround itself with high energy particles, taking on a pinkish firebird-like form, and launch a devastating ramming attack on the enemy Gunpla. This attack can turn the tide of the battle if successful, and is strong enough to break through the beam shield form by SD-237S Star Winning Gundam's guard bits. If the attack is stopped by the enemy, the mecha can disassemble into its components, which then return to their respective Gunpla, allowing the pair of Impulse GM to continue their fighting unhindered.
