The Dusk Wings are a terran mercenary organization. They were one of the first Banshee squadrons deployed by the Terran Dominion until they deserted, finding that they made more profit as a mercenary group.

HistoryEdit

During the Second Great War, they offered their services to Raynor's Raiders after the recovery of the xel'naga device component from Typhon XI; the Raiders acquired Banshees of their own at the same time.[1]

Doubles the amount of time Banshees can stay cloaked.

Wolfe Industries offers a new model of Banshee that embeds light-dampening materials into the hull. This new hull material requires far less energy to conceal and makes it much easier for the Banshee to maintain cloak once initiated.[3]

NotesEdit

The Dusk Wings were originally mercenaries that were based on the Wraith, rather than Banshees. This is can be seen in the editor, where the Wraith version remains only as an incomplete unit.
