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.

      Hi everyone /
      I think it's about time that I share my collection of ship albums that I use for The Base chat that I've had for a while now
      I only have ships that are either from lore, concept, development or being re-worked, not for ships that are flyable and I do add more to the albums. Enjoy.

      I am not selling. I am just looking to help someone in the org who wants to obtain one.
      How: 
      I will melt mine and maybe the token slot will be freed up and you'll be able to buy it. We can coordinate on TS or Discord.
      I don't guarantee that this will work but if your desperate enough, it's worth a shot. 
      The glaive is $350USD. You'll also need to have the new 2946 aggressor badger by completing Vanduul Swarm. 
      Nevermind, apparently this doesn't give it back to the pool. I've melted it.

      I am willing to part with my Esperia Vanduul Glaive LTI as seen in the Screenshot for $590.

      Buyer must be PayPal verified. If you are interested please let me know via PM.
