The “Glaive” is the official United Empire of EarthNavy (UEEN) designation for a fighter spacecraft operated by Vanduul forces. The Glaive is notable for its double bladed wings, in contrast to the Scythe’s single bladed wing, as well as the inclusion of a missile rack and a neutron gun. Glaives appear with a much lower frequency than Scythes. Owing to their proficiency in battle, there is some indication that they are typically flown by veteran Vanduul pilots, though this has yet to be proven. Human manufacturer Esperia has produced limited numbers of a Glaive replica spacecraft for civilian sale.
