The new Advanced FTL Edition offers many new things to the game, including Flak Weaponry. Do Defense Drones shoot down flak projectiles?

Yes, both defense drones can shoot down flak projectiles, but each piece is a separate target. The drone can get one or two pieces but it won't stop them all.

Does this apply to both the Mk I and Mk II? – Max May 11 '14 at 10:10
@Max Yes. Edited it into the answer. – Studoku May 11 '14 at 12:05

I just tested it: Defense Drone Mark I does NOT shoot down Flak.

Welcome to arqade. Could you provide some evidence? Because it contradicts the accepted answer. – 5pike Jun 25 '14 at 20:22
