A simple, quickly constructed form of unmanned fighter/remote gun turret that can independently track and attack designated targets, as well as be remote controlled directly if desired. The devices come shaped as a cube, then unfold into a 'spike ball' like design. The Alterran drones are a cheap way of adding fighters to the mix without having a full crew to fly them.

Primary uses:

  • Fighter craft
  • Picket line
  • Sacrificial scout(unmanned)
  • Diversion
  • Alternate angle of fire(can flank around opposite side of enemy)
  • Pursue multiple targets from one ship.
