Garn (Vampire) Inorganic Unmanned Aerial Assault Drone

The Garn, or Vampire as it was named by the United Earth Expeditionary Forces for reporting purposes, was an unmanned aerial drone used by the Invid Regent’s faction. They were tasked with patrolling the skies and orbital areas of Invid occupied worlds. Part of what was commonly referred to as the “Series Two” of Inorganics, the Garn was manufactured by Karbarran industry during their period of occupation. Though unable to operate on their own without direct connectivity to an Invid Hive-Brain, when in combat Garns showed a remarkable level of cooperation in their tactics. Typically, they would patrol in groups of two to eight, and would use tactics such as a single mecha lure enemy forces into set-piece ambushes. After the capture of Karbarra, Garns became a relative rarity on the battlefield.
