"It wasn't much of a plane. More like a trash can with wings."
Avril Mead[1]

The Searcher, referred to as Marker Drone in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, is a reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle. It is one of the earliest unmanned aircraft in the Strangereal universe and considered to be a pioneer of the technology.

History

Strangereal

A Searcher drone was featured on the cover of Our Science's "Era of the Drones" magazine in early 2006. Avril Mead spotted one flying over an Osean scrapyard.[1]

The Yuktobanian military operated Searchers as short-range recon drones. At the onset of the Circum-Pacific War, a Yuktobanian spy ship deployed several Searchers near Sand Island Air Force Base. The Wardog Squadron destroyed all of them before they could return to the vessel.[2]

The Estovakian military modified Searchers to provide guidance for the P-1112 Aigaion's Nimbus missile system. The Republic of Emmeria Air Force first learned of the drones during the battle of the Selumna Peaks. Garuda Team shot down most of the drones to help other Emmerian pilots in retreating from the area.[3] The Aigaion later deployed the drones again during the liberation of San Loma, but Emmeria's foreknowledge of them allowed them to dodge the Nimbus strikes and minimize casualties.[4]

Infinity universe

During Operation Gambit, the Sons of Troia deployed Searchers on a reconnaissance mission above Tokyo. Bone Arrow Squadron shot down all of them.[5]
