This Space Police tanker drone is widely used for inflight refueling of all sorts of craft.
About this creation
The Dragonfly navigates with 5 front-mounted ocular sensors, capable of viewing from visible light into the infrared spectrum. To orient itself with vehicles preparing to refuel, it also carries a medium-range radar reflector, mounted facing the rear.2,331 gallons of fuel can be carried in the Dragonfly's two tanks, which can be offloaded at a rate of 250 gallons/minute.

This photo is of a UA-66 Banshee gassing up from the Dragonfly. A disproportionate percentage of Dragonflies are posted with Banshee squadrons, because the assault rotorcrafts need to be refueled so often. To a Banshee pilot running on fumes, the sight of a circling Dragonfly is a relieving sight. For this reason, Banshee pilots have dubbed it the "Orange Angel." Although not as powerful or flashy as some of the fighters or interceptors flown by the SP, the TQ-109 is one of the most helpful of the Space Police vehicles to its pilots.
