You need Gliders for all the Major Nations (United States, UK, Russia, Japan, Italy, and Japan) There are 2 of each glider for each nation.

Purchase: Gliders must be placed at a factory when produced

Movement: Gliders move with their base unit, which must be either a strategic bomber (unless stated otherwise) or an air transport.  Such an aircraft has its range reduced by 2 when towing a glider.   A glider can otherwise move “1” in non-combat movement.   A glider remains in the zone it attacks and does not return with the towing unit.

Transporting Units: A glider can transport 1 infantry in combat movement. That infantry need not be an airborne but may not be a mechanized infantry.

Attack: Gliders must be delivered to their destination and have no combat move of their own.   Upon reaching their destination they and their towing aircraft are subject to AA fire.   After AA fire, Gliders land in the zone and units from them can participate in the attack.  Units attacking from a glider may not retreat.  Gliders are destroyed if the territory is not captured by the attacking units.

Restrictions: Gliders may never be launched from a carrier.
