A death glider is a two-man attack vessel designed for combat in both space and an atmosphere.
Death gliders are outfitted with broadcast speakers to allow the pilots to terrorize the populations beneath verbally, as well as with their weapons. They are outfitted with removable staff cannons, two to three times larger than standard staff weapons, but utilizing the same form of energy.
Gliders are capable of landing on smooth terrains, but are primarily designed to facilitate terror and obedience from those beneath. They are, however, more than suited to function as a fighter screen, and engaging in ship to ship combat with other fighters. The most prolific ship of the Goa'uld fleet.
