The Glaive is a symmetrical version of the Scythe. Generally flown by Vanduul with more combat experience, they are better armed and have two huge blades/wings as opposed to one on the standard Scythe. This model is a human reproduction created by the manufacturer Esperia.

Official Description

A long-rumored version of the iconic Scythe fighter, the UEEN-designated Glaive has now appeared in a variety of systems. Initially attributed to one of the more notorious Vanduul aces, military intelligence has confirmed that there are indeed multiple versions of the symmetrical fighter in a number of clans. Analysts theorize that only the top pilots are given these powerful and resilient spacecraft, indicating that it may even be a recognition of rank within the Vanduul clans. Pilots are advised to exercise extreme caution should they encounter a Glaive and its pilot.[1]
