A drone that has boosters to get out of trouble, heat seeking rockets to target things, homing missiles, and cryo rocket missile bombs. Also, there are pivoting jump thrusters and shields. This is based on bees. That was a mouthful.

A little automated fighter that keeps a distance between the enemy and itself and shoots Missiles.
Two turning speeds and two shield clusters, depending on where enemies are detected.
Also two firing triggers, close range and laser for long range.

Just for fun, a background description + download for giant worm to burrow through planets

 

The Ferro Mortem, also known as the steel worm, is a massive space borne predator, capable of destroying entire planetoids with their burrowing. It is undoubtedly mechanical, but acts with its own feral intelligence, and has been seen in various forms, sizes, and lengths. Many theories exist for its creation, most common of which is that all specimens of these worms are rogue drones from some unknown factory, now spread throughout the cosmos without discernible purpose.
