Heaven's Base is a military facility that appears in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny.

Overview

It is the high command center of the Earth Alliance on the island of Iceland in the northern Atlantic Ocean. It is therefore a stone's throw from Gibraltar, one of the largest bases of the ZAFT ground forces. It is a major military base for the Earth Alliance with base facilities and military arsenals on the scale of a small city, and is the largest of its kind since the collapse of JOSH-A, which was destroyed during the First Alliance-PLANT War.

History

Second Alliance-PLANT War

Chased by a mob of people who had been turned into a mob by Gilbert Durandal's speech, Blue Cosmos leader Lord Djibril and other Logos leaders and Logos and Blue Cosmos faction troops of the Earth Alliance gather and lock themselves up in the base. ZAFT, the Republic of East Asia, and other anti-Logos forces of the Earth Alliance formed an alliance, and both the Earth Alliance and PLANT camps issued official statements demanding the surrender of the Logos leaders at the base, total disarmament, and the abandonment of the base facilities. The ultimatum was answered by a barrage of rockets, signaling the start of the battle.

The combined anti-Logos forces were met by a powerful defending force consisting of a large number of GAT-04 Windams, GAT-02L2 Dagger Ls and old GAT-01A1 Dagger mobile suits on the ground and in the air, and aquatic GAT-707E Forbidden Vortex and GAT-706S Deep Forbidden in the water. The base also fielded for the first time the new TS-MB1B Euclid mobile armor, and the defense force also included five GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam units. The heavy firepower of these machines inflicted heavy casualties on the attacking forces, and when ZAFT launched an attack wave from orbit, the Nibelung anti-aircraft weapon was activated, destroying all ZAFT forces coming from above.[1]

However, the defense forces of the base began to crumble when the LHM-BB01 Minerva launched the ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam, ZGMF-X666S Legend Gundam, and ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam, resulting in the defeat of the five Destroy Gundams. Thanks to the success of the Destiny, Legend, and Impulse, the battle gradually tilted in favor of the Anti-Logos Alliance, and the base fell. Just before this, Lord Djibril abandoned the Logos members and fled by submarine. The other members were detained and put on international trial by both the Earth Alliance and PLANT.[1]
