The Mark-47 Decoy Drone was a small missile type device used by ships. The drones carried beacons that mimicked the signatures of ships from starfighter to capital ship. When launched the beacon would activate, appearing on sensors as the ship it was programed to mimic, either a generic class, or a specific ship. An Ion engine powered the drone through subspace, and a small Hyperdrive thruster allowed the drone to travel through hyperspace for a short time. Mark-47 Decoy Drones were commonly used by Phoenix-class Strike Bombers in their Electronic Warfare loadout.
