The Drone Fighter was an unpiloted craft used by U.N. Spacy primarily for combat exercises. Its armaments included a beam cannon and six high maneuver missiles, but the latter were typically unarmed for combat exercises. Instead of taking off on its own, the Drone Fighter was deployed from larger aircraft like the SB-10/10 Starwing bomber. In early 2040, multiple Drone Fighters were used in combat testing as part of Project Super Nova on planet Eden.
