The standard melee weapon carried by all Cylon Centurions. Crafted to resemble the ancient Roman Gladius, the weapon is crafted of metallic composites and honed to a razor-sharp edge. A cross-guard protects the wielder’s hand and can prevent the attacker from disarming. On average the blade is two feet in length, not including the hilt.

Many Colonial warriors tend to take the Gladius blades from fallen centurions as trophies, and a few have even learned how to use the weapon.
