Escort Drone

Tyranid Escort Drones are heavily armed (albeit slow and ungainly) Destroyer-class[3] Escorts that serve as the last line of defense for a fleet's Hive Ships. As such, they can usually be found clustering around the flanks of those massive Bio-ships.[1]

War Drones[1]

Wardrones are designed solely to fight and protect the Norn-Queen and the Hiveship. They are dependent entirely on the influence of the Hive Mind in order to operate. Wardrones vary heavily in size and shape, and usually fight in swarms, using weight of numbers to perform their tasks.[2]

Stalker Drones

Stalker Drones are smaller defence ships which dart around the Hiveship, reacting immediately and frenziedly to anything that threatens it.[1]
