Description and History

Large-scale construction in space was just one of many new endeavors brought about by the development of OverTechnology. To assist in zero-g construction operations, the U.N. Spacy contracted equipment manufacturer Glamor to build a multi-purpose craft for use in space. The Glamor Spider Bug was developed to meet the needs of construction in space and to assist with any other general-purpose functions. With four large manipulator arms, a heavy-duty grasping claw and a large fuel tank, this one-man space craft was soon employed in hundreds of operations all throughout the Sol system. The U.N. Spacy often kept these units aboard many of their spaceships. One such Glamor Spider Bug was seen inside the hangar of ARMD-01 when Space War I began in 2009.
