==Biography==
 
The Searcher Mk II System is an operational, advanced fourth generation UAV system derived from the third generation original Searcher. The Searcher Mk II is built to meet your present and future challenges. It has excellent engine and aerodynamic performance, superior deployment and handling qualities and a new advanced universal UAV mission ground control center compatible with all MALAT systems. Both Searcher systems are in operational use.
 
   
With more than 120,000 operational hours, IAI is an established pacesetter in integrated UAV systems solutions. Shown is the SEARCHER II Tactical-Operational Multi-Role UAV system with IAI's EL/M- 2055 SAR/MTI UAV reconnaissance payload.

"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.

HistoryEdit

StrangerealEdit

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 universeEdit

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