The Yellowjacket Drone is an extremely powerful Energy squadron with massive health but short range. It can only be equipped on Xeno Division Hulls or better.
Strategy and Setup
Yellowjacket Drones are extremely difficult to take down; even most A.X.I.S. Ship Weapons take a full volley or two to completely destroy them, especially at level III. They often survive the trip to their targets and inflict lots of damage before being forced to retreat.
Yellowjacket Drones have poor scramble range, allowing them to be outranged by lower-tier swarms such as the Gladiator Swarm. It is recommended to use a fast ship (cutter) to push your Paladin Carrier to get it in range as soon as possible.
Yellowjacket Drones also have relatively slow speed, giving enemies more time to destroy them, although this is most probably outweighed by their toughness.

- The Yellowjacket is the first drone-type ship squadron released to players.
- The Yellowjacket is probably a reference to the Yellow Jacket, an annoying insect.
