24 x Gun Drone

The Drone Frigate was developed as a flying platform capable of the deployment of 24 Gun Drones, each one of them was controlled by AI systems on the frigate, mixed with tracking devices housed on each drone. Two frigates mixed with a Gravity Generator could easily destroy several squadrons of fighters and corvettes without risking any damage on it's own. Puppeteers were unique frigates containing high-tech systems. Most of their hulls were filled with small docks allowing to Launch and Retrieve drones each time it was required. An onboard phased disassembler array allowed the frigate to supplement drones when some of them were destroyed. Finally, a large transmitter placed on the nose section of the ship allowed it to transmit commands to each of the 24 drones at a time. In Homeworld: Cataclysm, it was replaced by the new Hive-class advanced Frigate.
