Unit Description:
      Developed in tandem with the Glaug Officer's Battlepod, the Eldare is a battlefield upgrade which can be performed on a standard Glaug pod. The upgrade involves the removal of the mecha's legs and affixing of the main pod to a larger 'sled'. The Eldare Armoured Vehicle provides the Glaug primarily with aerospace and atmospheric combat capabilities, essentially turning it into a mecha / aerospace fighter hybrid. Each armoured vehicle also contains a large missile bay, which significantly increases the number of short range missiles on the Glaug to lethal and sustainable levels. In addition to these missiles, the pod retains its three particle cannons while gaining significant amounts of both armour and structural frame. It is the Glaug Eldare which is most often seen leading Gnerl Aerospace fighters into combat, as the standard Glaug can neither keep pace with these craft, or follow them into an atmosphere. The Eldare enhancement is not permanent, and a Glaug can changed to standard configuration after battle.
