The Incunablis Machine Empire does not use its fighters against enemy military craft. Rather, it uses them against under-defended enemy strategic targets such as remote asteroid mines and research stations, forcing the enemy to spread out its fleet over many disparate locations in an attempt to stop these harassment attacks. The common tactic used with these fighters is to Drill an Incunablis Carrier into the oort cloud of a system, then send its fighters, who have a long endurance due to the use of cyborg pilots, to harass targets all over the system, before returning to the Carrier and Drilling out. While ineffective against armoured military ships, the Incunablis Fighter's Reaper Battery is not limited by ammunition and is perfectly suited for killing "soft-skinned" civilian targets.
