MQ-96 Support Drone
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The MQ-96 is a small support UAV designed to operate in support of infantry units on the ground. This is achieved by way of the drone's numerous sensor and camera feeds, alongside a high-energy laser weapon designed by Isabel, which allow the drone to provide both cover and reconnaissance for its operator. The MQ-96 boasts impressive compatibility with a wide range of complementary systems and equipment: these include TACPADs such as the MC5 Individual Data/Net Terminal with hardened UNSC battle network uplink, which allows for a user to track and operate their drone. They may also be used with Target designators such as the H-165 FOM, or the PZY-955SSA WILLOW remote sensor package, which can be used to identify targets for the drone.
MQ-96 drones are widely used by the operational forces of UNSC Spirit of Fire. They were used by Sergeant John Forge in conjunction with his personal Warthog, with another used by Corporal Turpin of the Orbital Drop Shock Trooper team Sunray 1-1 to support the team. They are commonly paired alongside M121 Jackrabbits, in particular their "Veteran" loadouts, for support and reconnaissance even when removed from the wider UNSC support network.
