Technical and Historical Notes

The VBP-1 Variable Glaug was a unit that married the design of the Zentradi Glaug tactical pod with the three-stage transformation of a captured U.N. Spacy VF-4 Lightning III. In this new design, the original Glaug’s default configuration served as the GERWALK mode of the Variable Glaug. The Variable Glaug also implemented standard variable fighter technology like SWAG energy conversion armor. The Variable Glaug’s armaments were similar to the original Glaug and included a large-bore beam cannon, two medium-bore guns and a pair of small-bore laser cannons. The Variable Glaug was initially piloted by a Zentradi girl named Moaramia Jifon in 2018 on the planet Cristrania, where she engaged Dancing Skull Squadron ace pilots Maximilian and Milia Fallyna Jenius. After that battle, U.N. Spacy created its own version of the Variable Glaug for miclone pilots (designated as VA-110), as well as an unmanned variant, the Neo Glaug.
