Heavier than aerofighters, these mecha, as their name implies, maneuver in hover mode as well as flight, rather like a helicopter. Unlike aerofighters these mecha can be equipped with turrets.

-3 MV, +0 TR. Helicopters, VTOL aircraft, and the like. Most mecha lack ANTIAIR weapons, so it effectively has an MV 3 better than the listed value. Note that you cannot use cover while flying, so your best defense is speed. HoverFighters get a 25% bonus to Flying Thrust (calculated toward speed).
