Hello. First of all i would like to apologize for my bad english since i live in France :). For some time now i'm wondering how the so called ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam can weigh only a silly 79.44 metric tons since he is equipped with one MMI-714 "Arondight" anti-ship sword, if i take a an example the weigth of the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam's anti-ship sword, she weigh about 9 metric tons. Then there is the M2000GX high-energy long-range beam cannon x 1, if i take the "Agni" 320mm hyper impulse beam cannon x1 from the GAT-X105+AQM/E-X03 Launcher Strike as a template, who weigh about 19 metrics ton, of corse there in this pack there is the shoulder with the barrel gun and the Agni is bigger than the beam cannon, but still i guess the Destiny's canon should at least weigh 6 or 8 tons, probably more. Not to mention the Wings of Light device wich certainly is a kinda bulky and robust thing to deliver so much power and speed. We can also quote the P202QX IWSP Integrated Weapons Striker Pack : "The IWSP Striker Pack was an Orb Union design to combine the primary characteristics of the Aile, Sword and Launcher Striker Packs into a single unit. As such it was very heavy, very powerful... and very, very expensive", wich is basically what the Destiny is made for, combine all the type of existing weaponery to make him ready to every situations. So how the Zaft's engineers made it possible ? Did they use some specifics alloys to make the Destiny's frame so light ? How the suit can weigh so few with such heavy weaponery on his back ? I don't implicate that the real Destiny's speed is not what she seems since the Wings of Light appear to be an extremely powerfull mean of propulsion, but to me it seems that the official weigth of Destiny's had been underestimate and cheated to avoid making him the fat mobile suit of the Destiny,S Freedom,I Justice and Legend quartet , and probably to make him ligther than his rival unit the Strike Freedom wich weigh 80.09 metric tons, to make him appear one again faster than the others suits. Don't you think this is odd ? Does anyone can enlight me ? Well maybe i'm mistaken :). Thank for reading ! ∞InfiniteFreedom 00:18, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
It would be nice if we can add this animation to the article :p .
Destiny's reactor Edit
I removed a reference to Destiny's "hyper capacitor" as that is not a feature exclusive to Destiny. Every Gundam, at least, in SEED is shown to have a hyper capacitor. I don't have screen shots, but check the original SEED animation. Every shot of Strike's battery running down clearly shows that it also has a "hyper capacitor". It can be reasonably concluded that "hyper capacitor" is a fancy term for "battery".

Destiny's Physical ShieldEdit
It's not stated in the article, but what exactly does it do besides being a shield? Mostly why does it open up? --Silver Mage 12:45, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
