The tac fighter is a combat support ship used by the Hyperion.

The game unit cannot be selected or clicked upon.[1]

Hyperion LaunchEdit

  • Fighter Strike (W): The Hyperion launches a group of tac fighters, which attack for a period of time. The fighters can be individually destroyed, and rebuilt using repair bots. The number of tac fighters is based on level:
    • Level 1: 6
    • Level 2: 8
    • Level 3: 10
    • Level 4: 12[1]


  • Rarely upon death, the tac fighter will exclaim "they came from...behind," which is a quote shared by the gyrocopter unit of the Warcraft series and is a reference to a quote in Star Wars.
