Name of Weapon: ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam

Type of Weapon: GUNDAM Mobile Suit(ZAFT)

Appearence: My signature(and a demonstration of power)

History: The Strike Freedom is armed with new advanced weaponry, giving it several times the combat capability of the original Freedom thanks to advancement in technology which takes place in the roughly two year gap, chronogically, that separates their constructions.

Apart from the head-mounted CIWS and "Super Lacerta" beam sabers, the Strike Freedom is equipped with a pair of "Xiphias 3" rail cannons on its hips, a smaller and more refined version of its predecessor, and a chest-mounted "Callidus" multi-phase beam cannon. It also carries two high energy beam rifles that can combine into a longer, more powerful weapon similar to the GAT-X103 Buster's ability to combine its main armaments into a more powerful weapon. These rifles can be stored on the hips by having the rail cannons swivel to the rear of the suit. For defensive purposes the Strike Freedom is equipped with beam shields which are mounted on its forearms.

Much like the suit it’s based on, the most distinctive feature of the Strike Freedom is the set of wings housed on its backpack/thruster array. These wings give the Strike Freedom an updated HiMAT (High Maneuver Aerial Tactical) mode akin to the Freedom. In addition, it has the "Voiture Lumière" booster engine on its "wing", first employed by GSX-401FW Stargazer and Delta Astray. Unlike its predecessor, the wings are part of the Strike Freedom's weaponry as the blue sections of the eight wing components can detach and operate as remote "Super" DRAGOON units, each mounting one beam assault cannon.

Like its predecessor, the unit is equipped with hardpoints to dock with the METEOR (Mobile suit Embedded Tactical EnfORcer) weapon system. The Strike Freedom utilises an updated version of the Generation Unsubdued Nuclear Drive Assault Module complex operating system.


In the anime, Strike Freedom features incredibly high firepower, high accuracy, and high defensive capability, which some consider it as nearly equivalent of a Super Robot concept among mobile suits in the Cosmic Era universe. Unlike Freedom, which can be categorized as a medium range mobile suit (note that despite of this, Kira often uses the Freedom as a close combat mobile suit, using its high speed), Strike Freedom excels in various range. For close combat, aside the CIWS and the twin combinable beam sabers, its chest and hip mounted cannons can also be utilized (shown in episode 42, during close combat with Destiny), not to mention its already high speed. In medium range combat, two beam rifles and various cannons are available with or without the multi lock capability. For long range, the combined beam rifles and the powerful chest cannon can be used. It has remote weapons, the DRAGOONs, which can be used for either close (shown in episode 39 of the TV series, when cutting GOUFs' heat rod), medium, and long range combat. For defensive purpose, the two powerful beam shields generators also mounted on each of its forearms. This is contrast to its close combat companion, the ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice which has massive close combat weapons and tends to be close combat specialist.

The "trademark" feature of Strike Freedom is that it has capability to lock onto multiple units. This multi lock capability allows the pilot, to target several enemies at once with multiple weapons salvo firings. This ability is known as "Full Burst Mode" in the master grade model kit manual and Arcade/PlayStation 2 video game, Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED Destiny: Rengou vs. Z.A.F.T. II Plus. This ability is also shared by the original Freedom, as well as the MVF-M12A Ootsukigata. Also, the ZGMF-X09A Justice and ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice also have this capability for use with the METEOR weapon system.

The DRAGOON units seem to use the newer ZAFT technology which allows pilots lacking enhanced spatial awareness to operate remote weapons. Together with HiMAT mode, Kira Yamato was able to attack multiple targets in, Full Burst Mode. Also noted that the reason why the prefix "Super" is added to Freedom's DRAGOON system is because it was originally planned to be named "Super Freedom".

Strike Freedom's modified "Voiture Lumière" booster engine on its "wings" can generates visual effect similar to ZGMF-X42S Destiny's Wings of Light. This has been shown to be achievable only when the Strike Freedom deploys all of its DRAGOONs, leaving the thrusters laid out in the remote weapons' docking sections to create this effect. It is unknown whether it functions in the same manner as Destiny's "Wings of Light" (which also spread Mirage Colloid gas to create holographic after-images to confuse enemy radar/pilots when in dogfight).

As of Freedom, the unit is compatible with METEOR (Mobile suit Embedded Tactical EnfORcer) weapon system to augment its already impressive firepower.

The Master Grade 1/100 model kit also shows a feature, which never shown on the TV series, that the Strike Freedom's Hi-MAT system can be deployed into an Extended Hi-MAT mode, where the DRAGOON-bearing sections extend outwards, revealing gold plating similar to its arms and joints. In same model, it is also revealed that inner part of Strike Freedom is golden-colored plated.

According to the model's manual, The Strike Freedom's golden joints is used to endure ultra-mobility beyond the limits of its design, as power is distributed across all parts, producing a luminescent effect in which light is emitted from the variable phase shift armor of the joints. This is similar to chronogically earlier mobile suit, which announced to be one of the predecessors of the Strike Freedom, the DSSD's (Deep Space Survey and Development) GSX-401FW Stargazer, which also features golden body parts and seem to have some effect on the propulsion system. Also in this manual, stated that activating HI-MAT Full Burst mode and using Super DRAGOON at the same time, is virtually impossible unless the pilot is a super coordinator.
