The Swarm is essentially a high capacity communication hub linked to an AI and a thousand drones, wrapped in a thick layer of armour. Originally intended to supply drone cover to vessels too small to carry their own, the Swarm project was cancelled following the 870AE decision to cease use of all manned vessels below the size of light cruiser for military and exploration work. While some still debate the need for a carrier type ship, the Swarm has now entered service in fleets along the Syndicate border following reports from Aurora on the probably composition of any incursions from that area.
