ES-14 Janus light sensor/attack drones
is similar to the Oracle
drone in its mission specifications, but it is half the
size and can carry only two of the modular sensor packages.
The advantage of Janus is its relative speed and
maneuverability, as well as the Low Observability technology
it employs to disguise its position during combat operations.
Because of its greater acceleration and speed, the relative
mass that Janus can bring to bear in an attack can
be far greater than the destructive power of Oracle.
Janus is also more portable than its larger counterpart
and easier to maintain, though it lacks a command and control
capability for hunter-killer packs.
