The ZGMF-X2000CQGB&S GOUF Crusher is a prototype close-quarters combat mobile suit, it is featured in the original design series SEED DESTINY-MSV.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A close combat variant of the initial GOUF Ignited design (not to be confused with ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited which is actually a modified form of this initial version) that was created to showcase the design's changeable limbs concept for adapting to various situations. The GOUF Crusher features an enlarged right arm with higher strength and output to allow it to use its MA-M757 "Slayer Whip" Heat Rod linked Spherical Breaker effectively. The left arm meanwhile is equipped with an impact vise that is capable of crushing PS armor on the elbow joint. The test results of the GOUF Crusher is excellent but its design is not adopted as the initial GOUF Ignited design was rejected in favor of the ZAKU series. The main weakness with the changing limbs concept is that its mix and match capabilities pose a logistical and storgae problem for ZAFT and its battleships. Although the GOUF Ignited design is later modified and put into production as ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited, the same treatment does not seem to be given to GOUF Crusher.


Armaments

  • MA-M757 "Slayer Whip" Heat Rod linked Spherical Breaker
A heavy flail-like hammer that consists of 2 parts, 1) a Spherical Breaker that is stored on the backpack when not in used, and 2)the MA-M757 "Slayer Whip" Heat Rod mounted in the right arm. It is possible that the heat rod can be used on it own without the Spherical Breaker, which contains rocket thrusters to increase its attack power. This weapon is similar to the hammer used by GAT-X370 Raider Gundam.
  • Impact Vice
A vice-like weapon mounted on the left elbow joint, when in use, the left forearm will swing back while the vice swings forward. The impact vise is powered by an explosive cartridge that allows it to produce a maximum crushing power of 3 million Gs, destroying normal armor in 1 hit. Another ignition method for the cartridge is used when facing PS armor, as 20-30 continuous hits are needed to destroy it. The cartridge is ejected upon ignition.

History

A variant that is created to showcase the changeable limbs concept of the initial GOUF Ignited design. Despite its excellent performance, GOUF Crusher's design was dropped as the GOUF Ignited design at that time lost to the ZAKU series. The lone unit produced is put into rapid response mode and stored. Later, it is reactivated for the Battle Of Heaven's Base and is assigned to Henri Eugenie, its pilot during the test phase and also a member of the elite FAITH detachment.
