Esperia Glaive

Esperia Glaive  -  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.

Absolutely love the look of this fighter. Kinda reminds me of the Cylon Raiders.

Well...technically the glaive you describe is a Vanduul ship.  The Esperia Glaive is a human-made replica used by UEEN Aggressor squadrons.  For those who don't know, an Aggressor Squadron is a friendly unit that purposefully flies enemy craft to give the most real training experience possible.  Of course, the Aggressor pilots fly more than anyone else, so they are just about better than everyone else, even if their ship is something lame like a Glaive.  

Esperia was contracted to produce identical copies of the ship for the Navy and a limited number for the civilian market.  

I think, and hope, that in the future they'll make it 'more human' and less Vanduul-such as giving us a normal Esperia HUD when those begin to come out and perhaps a conventional ejector seat.  Perhaps even regular weapons mounts so we can put human guns on them.  Unlike the Scythe, this one is human built from the ground up and really doesn't need Vanduul weapons for lore purposes.

I just copied and pasted from RSI's ship overview of the Esperia version (Agressor squadron). Hence me posting under Esperia vs Alien ships. 

Bad ass looking ship regardless. Love the paint job too.

      61 Million: Esperia Prowler!
       

       
      At $61 million, you’ll unlock the boarding ship…
      Esperia Prowler – Named after the UPE military designation, the Prowler is a modernized version of the infamous Tevarin boarding craft from the First Tevarin War. With the recent discovery of the lost Tevarin planet in Kabal System, Esperia’s engineers were given unmitigated access to examine the preserved ships found in several of the caches, before meticulously recreating the design choices. The Prowler’s effectiveness as a rapid personnel deployment vehicle was mainly due to its silence. The boarding was constructed using a variety of techniques to minimize its signatures and get close to unsuspecting vessels before quickly deploying their boarders via EVA. With the updated Prowler model, you will find the perfect fusion of two culture: the elegance and effectiveness of the Tevarin war machine combined with the reliability of modern UEE technology. (While lacking some of the upgrades of the modern version, vintage Tevarin-built Prowlers restored for modern spaceflight are prized by owners lucky enough to locate them.)
