The AGMF-X56S/a Impulse Gundam Arc (インパルスガンダムアルク Inparusu Gandamu Aruku?) is a Gunpla that appears in the Gundam Build Divers series. Based on the ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam, it is built and piloted by Emilia.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
A Gunpla based on the Impulse Gundam and used by Emilia. It excels in firepower, aerial combat, and acceleration, and is also customized to fight in cooperation with its sibling unit, the Impulse Gundam Lancier. The combining structure of the original Impulse has been simplified, and because of this, the Impulse Gundam Arc can only separate into the Chest Core Flyer (upper body) and Leg Flyer (lower body).
While the original Impulse's Silhouette System is omitted, its concept is retained, with the Impulse Gundam Arc and Lancier being able to swap their Leg Flyers to change their performance characteristics. The combination of Arc's Chest Core Flyer with the Lancier's Leg Flyer resulted in the formation of the Impulse Gundam Arc-lancier, which is controlled by Emilia, and excels in melee combat and top speed like the Lancier.
- Arc Rifle
- The main weapon of the Impulse Arc. It was created under the concept of turning the ZGMF-X56S/γ Blast Impulse Gundam's "Kerberos" High-Energy Long-Range Beam Cannon into a portable weapon. The Arc Rifle is lightweight, has a robust barrel structure, and can adapt to various ranges as well as fire high output beams effective against ship. It also serves as the nose of the Chest Core Flyer and can fire in this mode. When wielded by the Impulse Gundam Arc-lancier, the Arc Rifle is used as a bludgeoning weapon.
- Beam Cannon
- A pair of beam cannons are stored in the side skirt armors and they can also be used in Leg Flyer mode.
