The Aegis Gladius Valiant is created as part of the Masters of Flight series in conjunction with the flight-sim Arena Commander, it pays tribute to famed defense pilot Condi Hillard for being the first Human on record to defeat a Vanduul in combat.

This Gladius comes equipped with a specialized dogfighting focused loadout and a custom special edition livery honoring her iconic ship.[1]. The Valiant boasts a new array of energy weaponry over the standard Gladius, giving it an edge over Vanduul attackers in longer engagements. A more varied missile set gives the Valiant the versatility to respond to any hostile threat

Condi Hillard

On the day the Vanduul attacked Armitage, Condi Hillard was patrolling the sector in her personalized Gladius. Organizing local patrol groups, Hillard led a strike team to destroy the Vanduul threat before the outpost came under heavy attack. In recognition of Condi Hillard’s bravery and resourcefulness, a limited edition Gladius with a special tactical loadout has been issued that will proudly bear her legacy, codenamed the Gladius Valiant[2]

Development

The Gladius was designed by Gavin Rothery (Freelance Concept Artist)[3] and directed by Paul Jones. Other contributors include Foundry 42's Bjorn Seinstra (Lead Vehicle Artist), Phill Meller (Lead Designer), Neil McKnight (Senior 3D Artist), along with Chris Roberts.[4]

In 2017-07, the Gladius received a cockpit rework to accompany the new item 2.0 system. The center monitor is removed to provide better visibility for the front turret. The side monitors are enlarged to show additional information. The cockpit reworked is deployed in Star Citizen Alpha 3.0.0.[5]
