Automated Fighting Drones are basically UCAVs in SPEHSS.

They are used and utilized by the Demiurg and are armed with some sort of weaponised mining laser, probably the same as those found on larger Demiurg ships, just on a much smaller and tactical scale. They bear some resemblence to a miniature Demiurg Bastion-class Commerce Vessel and only appeared in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. They look similar to the Automated Bombing Drone, however, they are much slimmer and less wide than their bomber brethren.

In Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 1 & 2[edit]

Automated Fighting Drones only appear in Demiurg fleets and are faster than their Tau Barracuda counterparts. Although this makes them superior, they could only be launched in the Cruiser and Battleship range.
