A Death Glider is a two-seat fighter craft designed for combat in both space and atmosphere. They are the most prolific ship in the Goa'uld fleet. The Death Glider is a crescent-shaped vessel with wings stylized to look like that of a bird. The wings curve downward, making their tips the lowest point of the vessel. When stored on a Ha'tak, the wings fold in to save space. The cockpit has room for two people; the front seat is the pilot's chair while the rear position controls the weapons. A single pilot can do both, however. Gliders are piloted by means of a large red sphere. Direct thoughts and spoken words seem to control the craft as long as the pilot touches this device. They are used by the Axis of Empires,Alliance of Nations and the Imperialist Alliance.
