The Gladius comes with its own unique equipment that will help you survive and achieve your goals in the verse.


The weapons of the Gladius are quite good for a light fighter. Three size three mounts give to the pilot the ability to experiment with many different combinations of strong weapons and create an effective loadout.

To complement its weapons, the Gladius also carries six strong missiles. Four size two and two size three missiles to be more precise.

For its protection the Gladius relies on two small shields. This combination of strong weapons, decent shields and superb speed is what makes the Gladius to stand out among other light fighters.

The Gladius is mainly using military components. This is in order to increase its performance and this is the upgrading path its owner should follow.


The Gladius is not offering any kind of utility since there is only place for the pilot inside the cockpit. Four screens and a 3D radar help with navigation and monitoring the ship’s status.

The visibility from the cockpit is excellent though offering better control of the surrounding area.
