The Kestrel was a fully-automated attack drone helicopter employed by the Coalition of Ordered Governments in the post-Locust War era. It was designed to provide air support for DeeBees, and was armed with two frontal machine guns and a missile launcher. Damaging the Kestrel's engines would lead to the aircraft's destruction. They were capable of carrying a single drop pod.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Kestrels can appear in boss waves in Horde 3.0.
  • In a cutscene, Gary Carmine was able to destroy a Kestrel by firing a burst at its main rotor with a Troika, though attempting this with a turret in-game won't have the same outcome.
