The F99 Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle, commonly known as the "Drone Fighter" or "Wombat", is a carrier-based air combat vehicle used by the UNSC Air Force.

History

During the Battle of Mombasa and Battle of Voi in late October 2552, numerous F-99s were deployed in recon elements numbering two to three aircraft to the city of New Mombasa and the city of Voi from UNSC Aircraft Carriers stationed some distance off the coast. They acted as air support for Marines in combat. One of these drones somehow crashed into a statue in front of the Uplift Wildlife Reserve, and its ejected optics package was found by a lone ODST.

Behind the Scenes

  • The F-99 was originally going to be featured in Halo 3 under the name "F99 Wombat", but didn't appear until Halo 3: ODST.[2] It was featured in the Art of Halo 3 book.[3]
  • Several F-99's also appear on nearby ships in Longshore[4]
