How We Got Our Name

DragonSpears was inspired by the U.S. Air Force’s AC-130 Spectre gunship, code-named “Dragon Spear.” This fixed-wing aircraft uses sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire-control systems to arrive undetected and ensure support for ground troops. We work the same way, arriving without fanfare and supporting your team when you need it most.
