Jovian Federation Interceptor drones (referred to as Grasshoppers or Batta by the UEAF) are sophisticated robotic assault units capable of functioning on land and in air, sea and space. They appear to be large yellow bugs with four legs and are both strong and highly mobile. They are armed with vulkan cannons on either side of their heads and their shells conceal thirty micro-missiles that can all be fired at once to rain down destruction on enemies. Grasshoppers are highly maneuverable in air and space, their agility hampered only by their machine intelligence. In space, they gain additional protection in the form of graviton-wave shielding.
