General Details
Name:  Glider ProtoMechs
Type (Category):  Core (Other)
Reference:  Interstellar Operations (p. 99)

Description:
Uniquely designed for bipedal Ultras as a consequence of the designís specialized motive systems, Gliders are low-altitude, limited-flight ProtoMechs that rely on a combination of thrust and glide wings that effectively mimic how LAMs operate in AirMech mode. Their elaborate flight systems, which include an adapted form of ProtoMech partial wing technology, modified jump thrusters, and a specialized musculature, are specifically designed to give them greater mobility in the air. As a result, Gliders have very little ground speed. Glider ProtoMechs can be deployed in vacuum or underwater, but they are incapable of using their WiGE-style movement capabilities in either situation.
