The AGMF-X56S/l Impulse Gundam Lancier (インパルスガンダムランシエ Inparusu Gandamu Ranshie?) is a Gunpla that appears in the Gundam Build Divers series. Based on the ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam, it is built and piloted by Karuna.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
A Gunpla based on the Impulse Gundam and used by Karuna. It excels in terms of melee ability, aquatic combat, and top speed, and is also customized to fight in cooperation with its sibling unit, the Impulse Gundam Arc. The combining structure of the original Impulse has been simplified, and because of this, the Impulse Gundam Lancier 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 Lancier and Arc being able to swap their Leg Flyers to change their performance characteristics. The combination of Lancier's Chest Core Flyer with the Arc's Leg Flyer resulted in the formation of the Impulse Gundam Lancier-arc, which excels in shooting and acceleration like the Arc.
- Lancier Javelin
- The main weapon of the Impulse Lancier. It was built under the concept of turning the ZGMF-X56S/β Sword Impulse Gundam's 'Excalibur' Anti-Ship Laser Sword into a weapon with a long handle. It can generate a laser over the blade on the moment of impact, enhancing its attacking capabilities. As its name suggests, the Lancier Javelin can be used as a throwing spear, and its power can easily penetrate large ships. The weapon can also shoot beams from its tip for range attacks, with even more powerful beams being fired when the Impulse Gundam Lancier-arc is wielding it.
- Missile Launcher
- Missile Launchers are stored in the side skirt armors and they can also be used in Leg Flyer mode.
- Defensive armament mounted on the left forearm. It can combine with Lancier Javelin to form the nose of the Chest Core Flyer.
During the Force Battle that pitted the Force Build Divers and its allies against the Coalition of Volunteers, Karuna and his Impulse Gundam Lancier took the elevator down to the underground waterway as Emilia was worried the enemy may sneak in through the waterway. As the elevator reached its destination and open its doors, Karuna and his Gunpla came face to face with the Build Divers' PEN-01M Momokapool. After recovering from the shock, Karuna engaged the enemy with his Impulse Gundam Lancier.
