The ovm-gd Glud was an anti-stronghold heavy mobile suit, and like the ovv-af Danazine and ovm-lce Reganner, was developed for the invasion of Earth. It was also meant to be a commander type Earth-use suit, and to maintain the soldiers’ morale, it retained the humanoid shape and was one of the few Vagan ground combat units to do so. The Vagan final battle plan consisted of two phases: securing a path to Earth and invading the planet. The original plan was to deploy Glud in the second phase, but as the plan never got out of phase one, the landing forces were ordered to deploy near the end of the battle. Due to its humanoid shape, it could use handheld weapons from other Vagan units without any modification. The Glud’s missile launchers were loaded with special homing missiles. Unlike normal missiles, these missiles did not have a solid warhead but instead a beam bit warhead that was derived from X-Rounder bit technology. The missiles’ homing capabilities still reloed on traditional technologies. As it was a heavy mobile suit, all its thrusters and boosters had greatly improved power.
