Originally terraforming drones deployed from the #deca CPU ship, these ships appear to have been modified along with #deca to perform a defensive role.
The #deca.deaf has a spindly, blocky construction, with its main guns mounted in a forward-protruding bay.
With a turret for missile defense, the #deca.deaf has an advantage over other M4s in that it isn't as vulnerable to being one-shotted by medium missiles. This gives it a better chance of survival when fighting other small craft.
As an M4, the #deca.deaf lacks the durability to be a frontline fighter. It is fairly quick and well shielded for its class though, so makes a very effective interceptor.
