|Add combat capabilities to Von Neumann Probes|
This project becomes available when you lose the first probes in combat with drifters. This in turn happens shortly after they have a population of 1M, and begin to fight your probes.
It displays space battles, which are added to the game shortly before the project is unlocked. Your probes will attack and reduce the number of drifters depending on the Probe Trust allocated to this option. Until you unlock it, your probes will be defenseless and thus will be killed (a counter for "Lost in combat" appears).
New counters will also appear: "Drifters Killed" and "Drifters" (note: sum is equal to that of "Lost to value drift" above it).
