The FAS is a massive aircraft with the capability to carry up to 80 MQ-101s at one time. When these drones are launched, they are dropped from their holds in the aircraft's wings, flipping over and extending their wings to take flight. The FAS does not appear to feature any defenses otherwise. Instead of jet engines, the FAS utilizes large propellers for thrust.
- The FAS resembles the Northrop YB-35 with its flying-wing design and rear-facing contra-rotating propellers.
