The Officer's Battlepod is issued to most higher officers in the Zentraedi armed forces, when they are in the field commanding forces of Regult Battlepods. Both in space and on the ground, the Glaug offers its pilots a heavy armament, excellent mobility and adequate protection. Usually, this mecha is colored in a white/grey scheme, with ochre canopy and feet.
Although the Officer's BP is large and not thickly armored, its protection is superior compared to that of the standard Battlepod. This is partly because it is thicker, but mostly because the Officer's BP is better at deflecting incoming fire due to its streamlining. It also has a heavy cannon armament, with three beam cannons, including a large, long-range cannon on top, and four smaller projectile weapons in the chin and in the arms. In addition, there is a 'last ditch' missile battery with six missiles.
The Officer's Battlepod is both a capable ground fighter and an effective space fighter. In the latter role, its four main engines and numerous smaller engines make it quite nimble. In addition, the mecha can travel short distances under water, usually to and from Zentraedi dropships. In combat against human mecha, the heavy armament and mobility often offset the lesser armor.
