They are built inexpensively and deployed in vast numbers. The carry a crew of one: pilot/missile gunner. The squad of 12 marines is lead by a junior officer trained in forward observation, who is assisted by a senior NCO. They are equipped with chameleon combat armor, grav belts and Gauss weapons. They use a flight grav harness which allows them to use their wings to fly, their armor has titanium and carbon fiber talon augmentation which makes them deadly auto-mechanical rending claws in close combat.
