Destiny is a Mobile Suit in the series Gundam SEED Destiny, and namesake of the series. It is piloted by Shinn Asuka. Destiny was designed to be a multi-purpose MS without the need for exchanging equipment in battle; the unit is capable of handling a variety of combat situations. For close combat, the suit features not only two Beam boomerangs that double as beam sabers, but a large Anti-Ship Sword; it’s the preferred weapon-of-choice of Destiny’s pilot, Shinn Asuka. In addition, the Palm Beam Cannons are used in close combat. For long-ranged battle, it is equipped with a Long-Range Beam Cannon and a optional Beam rifle. For defense the Destiny mounts a small physical shield as well as two Beam Shield Generators. Lastly the suit is equipped with a standard set of head mounted CIWS.
The most unique aspect of Destiny is its Hyper-Deuterion Nuclear Reactor and its Wings of Light. The Wings of Light is a propulsion system that uses mirage colloid properties to create an illusionary effect on Destiny. When activated, the rear releases its propulsion system, taking the appearance of a pink energy “feathers.” Destiny would create multiple illusionary versions of itself to confuse the enemy as Destiny attack for a high speed melee attack.
The Hyper-Deuterion Nuclear Reactor is Destiny’s primary power source, providing the necessary power to support all of it’s energy consuming abilities. The Wings of Light is by far the most power consuming function to be used; as such, the Wings of Light tends to be reserved for only more difficult opponents. When executed, the unit has a very limited time to destroy its target before Destiny’s power is depleted. Should the enemy unit still stand after utilizing its wings, Destiny will be at a temporary disadvantage as its overall systems can’t be properly utilized until properly recharged. For unexplained reasons, Destiny can’t be easily recharged as Impulse can; the unit has to return into a hanger to recharge in order to return to battle. See details
