Game Description[edit | edit source]

Vanguard Starships are issued two loyal Jem'Hadar ace pilots. These expert pilots fly their own Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Raiders (Alpha and Beta) in formation with you, never straying far from your side. Their extensive experience in team-based tactics allow them to execute powerful maneuvers. All Maneuvers share a cooldown, and only one may be active at a time.

Wingmen may not be ordered to attack specific targets, but will instead rapidly update their targeting parameters based on your chosen target. If destroyed in combat, each Wingman will automatically rejoin you after a short lockout period has passed.
