Description
During the Dominion war, waves of attack fighters were used against Dominion and Cardassian warships with little effect. The primary issue faced was their lack of shielding, maneuverability as well as their lack of effective fire power to actually damage capital vessels. To address this the Gladius module was designed with an additional heavy duty shield generator located on the dorsal surface of the fighter craft between the nacelles. This allows the Gladius incredible stamina and staying power during dogfights while the addition of fusion reactors creates more power to be used by all fighter systems. While bombers are the primary unit used to attack and destroy capital vessels, they still require escorts with enough strength to defend them as well as run interference for them while they complete their mission. The Gladius, named for the main weapon used by the Roman Legions is meant to be a heavy fighter thrusting into the thick of a dog fight or providing a screen for bombers or the command ship alike.

The Gladius module provides pilots and commanders a heavy duty space superiority fighter meant to take on both fighters as well as assist in engagements against enemy capital ships. The module itself, slots in behind the core unit and uses the already present matter/anti-matter reactor from the core fighter to power its warp nacelles The addition of two fusion reactors powers not only the impulse drives, but also gives additional power for use in both the added shield generator as well as the addition of two new pulse phasers. The size of the module allows for a larger magazine for torpedoes and the addition of two dorsal mounted micro-torpedo launchers allows for heavier firepower when used.
