The SMND-1200/A Imp is the swarm aerodyne of the Phoenix Mercenaries. The Phoenix swarm is a group of small one man fighters with high stealth and speed but almost no armor. Their weapons are weak but attack in a large mass to quickly wear down an enemy.
The Phoenix Swarm aerodynes are piloted by the most daring Phoenix soldiers on Crim-12. The swarm consists of very small one-man planes with less armor than even the scouts. Because of their speed and maneuverability, the swarm travels in large numbers and weaves a complicated pattern around each other. They carry the lightest possible weapons and count on their combined firepower to take out their targets. Once their numbers dwindle they do become less of an offensive force, but given enough time, they can whittle down large targets.
