WRONG

He did something wrong, that's why Lacus is still alive. All he needed to do to win the war was to clone Fllay Allster, have this clone get Kira Yamto to work for him.

Gilbert "Duran" Durandal was the true hero of SEED Destiny

Destiny plan was stupid

>>13732685

Pissed away a perfect victory because he couldn't deal with a world that wasn't doing everything the way he wanted?

Yeah he did wrong. He wiped out Logos and made the naturals and coordinators start to get along. He won, and would have made Kira and Lacus look like fools in comparison if he just left it at that.

Not to mention, he could thrown some major mud their way and it would be legit. The Archangel did engage in terrorist acts during Destiny and Kira was using banned weapons tech. Using illegal weapons constitutes a war crime in real life.

Didn't soldiers under Cagalli rough up Yuuna to find Djibril? If so, that's also a war crime.

He lost to Lacus.

He couldn't really call him out on that after episode 37 because he himself started using nuclear mobile suits too.

How would he even know about this? Also she had him arrested and stripped of his rank and title and told them to take him into custody. Soldiers and police are allowed to get physical when arresting people.

For some reason when the catalog was loading and the picture wasn't up yet, I thought it was going to be Gil Barg.

I was interested in how anyone could defend him.

Sounds great on paper!

Put his trust in scientists who assured him having the Destiny launch in pieces for mid-air combination in combat EVERY FUCKING TIME was the most efficient way to do it.

Anyone who accepts that kind of idiocy isn't fit to lead humanity in any capacity.

>>13733186

To be fair, adhering to that rule in SEED D would result in just about every leader being brought before a firing squad - Gilbert included.

He tried to create his own version of the Archangel with Shinn as its Kira.

He wanted there to be a second Kira Yamato.

Let that sink in.

His plan was space comunism and brave new world. How could anyone think that's alright.

>>13732685
What was the deal with him and gladys? She leave him or something?
>>
>>13735689
It's kind of funny, when you look at it from the voice actor side of things.

Durandal's VA is the same as Char's, and Gladys is the same as Kycilia's. Kycilia's VA used to be married to Amuro's VA, but they got divorced.
>>
>>13735689
Couldn't have children because coordinator fertility issues. Gladys leaves him for guy she could have kids with.

Durandal discovers his NTR fetish, hopes to spread it with the Destiny Plan which forces lovers apart in favor of assigned partners instead.

Only once the EA broke the treaty first. And Lacus had been hanging onto the Freedom since that treaty was signed.

>>13737260

His entry in the Japanese Wikipedia have some interesting bits

- His family runs a tofu store and he is apparently quite proud of that when asked about it
- He was married with Koyama Mami (VA for Kycillia/Talia) after he graduated from university (so basically early 70s), but they divorced in 1983. However he remained friends with her after
- He used to not drink alcohol often

What exactly are you referring to, here?
>>
>>13738748

Most likely the N-Jammer Canceller
>>
>>13738771
Those weren't banned, though. Neutron Jammers were what got banned at the end of the Bloody Valentine War.
>>
>>13738748
The Junius Treaty, signed at the end of the Bloody Valentine War, put a ban on the military usage of nuclear tehcnologies like the Freedom's N-Jammer Canceller. Using the Freedom could be classified as a war crime if Kira were ever to go to trial.

Additionally, Lacus's Terminal organization stole the Strike Freedom and Infinite Justice. These units and their data were sealed by ZAFT in the spirit of the Junius Treaty, but when the second war broke out Terminal stole them for their own armament.
>>
>>13738779
>>13738780
From what I've been able to find, you're both right. Neutron Jammers and Neutron Jammer Cancellers were both apparently banned.

That doesn't make any fucking sense though. If N-Jammers are banned, why ban the method of getting around them? Why then use that method of getting around them all over the Earth?
>>
>>13737883

There is literally nothing wrong with this plan.

>That doesn't make any fucking sense though. If N-Jammers are banned, why ban the method of getting around them? Why then use that method of getting around them all over the Earth?

It's military use of those technologies that's banned. N-Jammer Cancellers were installed into the EA's powerplants in order to get them working again following the war. Granted, this means N-Jammers are pretty much worthless now since the EA is vaccinated against future usage.

As for the cancellers, that's to stop people from using nuclear warheads and nuclear-powered mobile suits/armors.

I get the feeling that these worldbuilding details were written without Fukuda's input and he never bothered to glance over them.

>>13738780

>These units and their data were sealed by ZAFT in the spirit of the Junius Treaty, but when the second war broke out Terminal stole them for their own armament.

Actually the plans were stolen by Terminal before the development was completed according to the MG manual for Strike Freedom

>>13738863

Mirage Colloid was also banned too, but that stopped no one
>>
>>13738863
What I mean is, it doesn't make sense that Neutron Jammers are banned for military use, but Neutron Jammer Cancellers are too.

It'd be like if poison gas was banned in warfare, but gas masks were banned too.
>>
>>13738888

If NJC is not banned for military use, the moment a war starts it'll just be EA trying to throw waves of nuclear missiles at PLANT again just like at the end of SEED
>>
>>13738888
> It'd be like if poison gas was banned in warfare, but gas masks were banned too.

Yeah, but would using the N-Jammer Canceller to fix the damage done by N-Jammers count as military use? It would be more like economic recovery which would be fine under the treaty. After all, they've already installed them in powerplants despite the Junius Treaty as part of the post-war recovery.
>>
>>13738906
But Neutron Jammers can't be used militarily. So them affecting military units would be violating that.
>>
Why didn't anyone develop N Jammer Canceller Nullifiers to counter Nukes/Nuclear powered gundams?
>>
>>13738863
>I get the feeling that these worldbuilding details were written without Fukuda's input and he never bothered to glance over them.

They were mentioned once to say how evil the EA is.

And that was it. Kira uses Freedom and nobody cares. In fact it's nuclear reactor is never even mentioned, and the only way you'd know it has one if you didn't watch Seed was because of the readout on the cut off button which most Japanese people probably can't read anyway.

And Durandal rolls out two nuclear Gundam's of his own and nobody cares, and then Lacus pulls out two more. And they never even try to explain what the Destroy runs off of.
>>
>>13738943
Because that make the whole canceling a canceller that cancels nuclear reactions thing even more assinine than it already was.
