A Nightmare fighter, from the old Reciprocity generation of nightmares.

NF Unknown (Nightmare Fighter)
NB Agaddah from Shadow Genesis


Original Tech Room Description

The Nightmare fighter is more commonly referred to as a 'swarmer'. Small, weak, but well armed and agile, these fighters can overwhelm foes in seconds when used in swarms of 6 or 12. One on one, these fighters are inferior to GTVA fighters, but the Nightmares appear to create and deploy them at a massive rate and seem little bothered by massive casualties incurred. The GTVI has theorised that these fighters may be advanced drones, but this cannot be confrimed until one is captured.

Shadow Genesis Tech Room Description


Light Bomber

Asmara Astae

The Agaddah seems to be a smaller, lighter brother of the fearsome Guali bomber. Faster, more manoeuvrable and agile, but more lightly armed and shielded, Agaddah is widely used in Nightmare attacks against Alliance cruisers and convoys. Squadrons of these bombers inflicted heavy damage to civilian convoys during the evacuation of Spica system in the first stage of the war. We believe that Agaddah is younger, not fully shaped Guali bomber deployed for smaller engagements in its adolescence in order to gather experience on the battlefield... if it comes back to its mothership.

The HTL is actually larger. In Shadow Genesis it comes as a light bomber.
