The Delano 7 is the Delta-class gunship flown by the Bounty Hunter Sylux in Metroid Prime Hunters. The ship's hull is predominantly blue with green accents and is believed to be a stolen Federation prototype.
Samus encounters the ship twice during the events of Hunters. She first sees it on Alinos, where it flies overhead. She later sees it during the fight with Sylux, where it aids the hunter in battle. It has a cannon on its lower hull which automatically fires on targets. This cannon is vulnerable to weapons fire, but can only be temporarily disabled. This is the only hunter gunship that Samus encounters during Hunters other than her own.
The Delano 7 in Corruption
- "Sylux's delta-class strike fighter is believed to be a stolen federation prototype. Due to an unresolved design flaw, the autocannon can be temporarily disabled by several direct hits to the ship's hull." — Logbook "Delano 7" (Metroid Prime Hunters)
- "Tanabe also considered the cliffhanger tease at the end of Corruption wrapped up too. The mysterious ship that tailed Samus at the end of the game is actually a character from Metroid Prime: Hunters, tying that spin-off into the main sub-series.
"So it was Sylux, another hunter from Metroid Prime Hunters at the end of Metroid Prime 3. Personally I'd like to create a story centring around Sylux and Samus," he said." Next proper Metroid Prime "would likely now be on NX", Eurogamer
