Deploy Swarm icon (Federation).png

Deploy Swarm activates numerous attack drones in your hull, ultilize them as a weapon, and fend off anything comes near the ship. This ability will lower your maximum hull hit points and gives a bonus in flight speed and turn rate. It is only available on Section 31 vessels: Section 31 Command Heavy Battlecruiser and the Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser.

When activated, hundreds of fighter vessels will pour out of your ship, and fire on anything hostile that approaches you. A number of these drones will frequently peel off from the main swarm to attack any larger vessels that approach you.
