Attack Craft is a catch-all term used for the small spacecraft and aircraft that are deployed from larger starships' launch bays in support of naval warfleets during combat operations. They are divided into three general categories depending on their size and role:

  • Fighters are the smallest Attack Craft, using their speed and firepower to intercept and destroy enemy Attack Craft and ordnance.
  • Bombers are lumbering spacecraft that lack the speed of fighters, but carry enough firepower to threaten capital ships.
  • Assault Boats are small, spaceborne transports designed to pierce the hull of an enemy starship and desposit a squad of soldiers for a quick hit-and-run attack.

The most notable Attack Craft of all the major starfaring species in the galaxy are listed below.

Imperial Attack Craft

Imperial Navy

Space Marines

Chaos Attack Craft

Dark Eldar Attack Craft

Eldar Attack Craft

Necron Attack Craft

Ork Attack Craft

Tau Empire Attack Craft

Tau

Tau Allies

Tyranid Attack Craft

The Tyranids use a wide variety of organisms that are roughly equivalent to the other starfaring species' fighters and assault boats, but their vast diversity defies categorisation into distinct classes.
