The G-42 (nicknamed "Crush" after the turtle from Finding Nemo due to its similarity in shape to a turtle) is the backbone of the UPIG's air force. It is able to use the jets on its fins to hover in place, making it very effective at laying down massive amounts of fire in a concentrated area with its dual plasma miniguns and four beam cannons. The jets mounted in the back of Crush give it the capability of traveling at speeds up to mach 2. While the G-42's firepower is exceptional, it handles about as well as a Boeing 747. Most G-42s are decorated in the typical black and lime green color scheme of the Epsilon Squad, but usually members of other squads are permitted to pilot them.
