These stealthy hunters are the only race to have developed a cloaking device. When not cloaked, their ships are graceful, elegant, and jet black. They are the masters of the hit-and-run, popping out of stealth (a prerequisite to firing their weapons), swooping down at lightning fast speeds, and then disappearing before the alarm can be raised. Their ships are designed with speed and stealth in mind. They boast the fastest mass-produced ships in the galaxy. In a prolonged fight, Drow ships do not tend to survive, which is why they try to avoid out-and-out warfare, preferring guerrilla tactics. Their shields function while cloaked, but not their weapons. Like almost everything else about the Dark Elves, their drive system is a well guarded secret.
