General[edit | edit source]

The Redhawk Drone is an all-round Explosive squadron with moderate health and range. It can only be equipped on Xeno Division Hulls or better.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Redhawk Drones are essentially Bomber Squadrons on steroids, having many times more health and damage.

They are fairly tanky, requiring Xeno Division Ship Weapons or better to take them down quickly, and can effectively fight other carriers as the range disadvantage is not that much even against Hunter Swarms.

Redhawk Drones are best used in conjunction with other squadrons as cannon fodder and/or damage dealers; the multiple speeds of different types of drones makes it extremely difficult for enemies to take them on all at once.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

While Redhawk Drones are decent in every aspect, they fail to excel in any one of them. They are significantly less durable than Yellowjacket Drones and lack the long range and speed of Bluetail Drones, which is not ideal if you want to specialize your Paladin Carrier.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
