The Aegis Dynamics GladiusThe Aegis Dynamics Gladius

Built by Aegis Dynamics, the Gladius is an older design which has been updated over the years to keep up with modern technology. In military circles, the Gladius is beloved for its performance and its simplicity. A fast, light fighter with a laser-focus on dogfighting, the Gladius is an ideal interceptor or escort ship. Fewer moving parts than the Hornet means new pilots can adapt to the ship more quickly and ground crews can keep them flying more easily.

Classified weapons technologies have been removed from the spaceframes, but they can be outfitted with a variety of civilian-grade weapons. The decommissioning process has also made room for civilian standard upgrades such as jump drives.

The Gladius has been so important to the UEE in their battle against the Vanduul and other forces that threaten the Imperator. Civilians can now experience this workhorse of a ship and it will now appear in your hangar! Flight is coming soon and when it does there may be a new king of Arena Commander.
