The Aegis Dynamics Gladius is a small 1-person fixed-wing light fighter. It has three weapon and four missile-rack hardpoints and is capable of short-range quantum travel. The Gladius was added to the development as part of the $42 million Stretch Goal.
|“||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.||”|
The Gladius is equipped with a fixed size 3 Mantis GT-220 Gatling on the nose and two fixed size 3 CF-337 Panther Repeaters mounted under the wings. The armament is completed by four Ignite II (size 2, Infrared) and two Arrester III (size 3, Cross Section) missiles. A weapon rack that can hold two rifles is integrated into the ship hull on the starboard side and accessible from the outside. The ship is fitted with a ejection seat.
