The ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited is a close-quarters combat mobile suit. it was featured in the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. Its most notable pilots are ZAFT ace pilots Heine Westenfluss and Yzak Joule. GOUF is an acronym for "G uardian O f U nity F orerunner".
GOUF Ignited was originally a candidate to be ZAFT's next-generation mass production MS but lost to the ZAKU series. Development of the MS however continued due to its high performance, resulting in the ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited which was then put into production when the main battlefield switches to earth and as the ZAKU's production lines reach its limit. The production type ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited seems to be identical in all areas to the ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited except for the paint scheme.
Unlike the ZAKU, GOUF Ignited does not mount the Wizard Packs and is instead equipped with a flight pack, granting it higher mobility and when inside Earth's atmosphere, flight capabilities comparable to the AMF-101 DINN. The suit features both close and ranged combat armaments, but excels particularly in close combat. It is armed with 4-barrel beam guns mounted on its forearms, along with multi-purpose heat rods. In addition, a shield storing a double-edged beam sword can be mounted on its arm and some of the suits have also been seen carrying the M68 "Cattus" 500mm recoilless rifle. GOUF Ignited is mainly used by commanders and elite/ace pilots.
A Mobile Suit developed as a part of ZAFT's New Millenium Series of next-generation mass production MS. The GOUF Ignited's inital design was rejected in favor of the ZAKU series. However, the design's high performance saves it from being cancelled and its developmemnt was allowed to continue. Later, a handful of prototype version of the improved GOUF Ignited (which is the current ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited) were deployed in battle. The GOUF Ignited piloted by FAITH's ace Heine Westenfluss and painted in his personal color is one such unit. Heine and his GOUF Ignited are assigned to the Minerva shortly after of the Battle of the Gulnahan Ravine. but it is destroyed in action shortly afterwards by Stella Loussier 's ZGMF-X88S Gaia. killing Heine in the process during a 3-way battle between the Minerva. the Earth Alliance and its allies from the Orb Union and the Archangel crew, who tries to prevent this battle.
When it become clear to ZAFT that the ZAKU series is not sufficient to meet combat needs by itself anymore, the GOUF Ignited is put into production to supplement them, it is given a blue paint scheme and designated ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited. A production-model GOUF Ignited is stolen by Athrun Zala and Meyrin Hawke in their attempt to defect from ZAFT, but they are shot down by Shinn Asuka 's ZGMF-X42S Destiny. A custom white and gray colored unit is later piloted by Yzak Joule.
