Tyranid Fleets are massive swarms of spacegoing Tyranid Bio-ships. Centered around the giant Hive Ships, Tyranid Fleets seek out new planets for consumption, clearing victim worlds' orbital defenses before delivering an uncountable swarm of creatures to the surface. Being entirely organic, Tyranid Bio-Ships emit no electromagnetic signatures and thus are impossible to detect until it is already too late.[1a][1b][2]

N.B. - Italics indicate subspecies of a greater species.
