    If you're talking about the speed applied to the Drones, it cannot be fixed visually, but the boost is applied. The flight time should also be extended.

    ?? I'm not sure what description you're talking about, best I can tell the special doesn't differentiate. This is all I see on the blueprint:

    I'm pretty sure it's worked with all squadrons/swarms/drones before, regardless of damage type. But like SEAL Corps 1 says, sometimes the visuals don't match. Old bombers are a great example, they don't visually speed up, but you can tell it's working because they'll start firing from much farther away.

    Edit:
    Ok, I found a description on mobile:


    But this special pre-dates xeno damage by at least six months, again, I'm fairly certain the "regular squadrons" simply means non-elite squadrons, i.e. without this special.

    I personally don't have elite squadrons on a paladin, so I can't test this myself. To the OP, do you have a video example by any chance?? Or can you make one showing the different between fury and the other drones?

    I used Elite Squadron special on my Paladin before having that Harmonic Agility Credit, and it worked well with Yellow Jacket Drone. When I swaped it with Harmonic Agility, I can see and experience the difference; shorter flight time is the most visible one.

    elite squadrons bost only regular squadrons so all not xeno damage type squadrons (but it bost alien squadrons)
    xeno axis squadrons will soon receive an special bost item probably in this month in decimation

    Have you tested this?? Or have a source for your statement??

    According to Mr. Topgear's ship calc, Hunter swarms (which have alien damage type) on a Paladin are boosted by this special.

    Hunter -  Example Link.
    2000m/s Speed
    30s Flight time

    Hunter with Elite Squadron III - Example Link
    2600m/s Speed
    60s Flight time

    Based on that it seems reasonable to expect fury drones would also be effected by this special. But if anyone has proof either way I'd be interested in seeing it.

    well i saw picture with xeno elite drones as leaks on my coalition group
    so probably yes regular drones are not those xeno type but are alien drones because they have the same damage types as regular squadrons so elite squadrons are all energy projectile explosives types not xeno damage type

    Maybe the word alien is confusing here, Am i right in that what you're saying is;
    'squadrons' and 'swarms'(alien squadrons) get the bonus but 'drones'(axis squadrons) don't?

    there is no indication anywhere that fury drones WOULD NOT be boosted by elite squads - if this is a problem, take a bunch of screenshots of your fit and then your fit battling another carrier with elite squads without fury to show the difference in fuel - then post a ticket (and give us an answer here) Thanks

    The time of 30 seconds more doesn't get applied to the fury drone but all other drones

    "Cannot" and "will not" are two totally different things.
