From Sonic Retro
It's similar in design to Hornets and have the ability of tracking enemy movement. The Egg Flyer is equipped with a hovering unit built into their central hull which extends to the back, twin engines below the hull that allow steering and a vulkan cannon. The Egg Flyer has a poor defence, taking one hit to the core to destroy. Groups of them can often be found hovering in formation, just asking to be used as stepping-stones in a Homing Attack barrage - for example, during the Egg-Genesis boss fight.
It has an advanced model, the Egg Buster.
