The Gladiator Tactical Unmanned Ground Vehicle (TUGV) is a remotely operated unmanned ground vehicle employed by the United States Marine Corps.

The Gladiator is designed to be able to operate at all times of the day through the use of image intensifying or thermal devices. It is designed to support dismounted units in all environments and terrain and is modular to allow the fitting of mission specific payloads. The main uses for the Gladiator will include direct combat, surveillance, reconnaissance, and personnel obstacle breaching. It is equipped with a Thales SWARM remote weapon station, which can operate a variety of weapons. Most are equipped with a 7.62mm M240 machine gun.

It is built by Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, with MillenWorks as a subcontractor.

192 Gladiators were expected to be deployed in 2007.
