Blarg Heavy Interceptors were a type of low-altitude aircraft that shined a light towards the ground, if Ratchet) was caught in the light it turned red and would activate all of the small machine gun turrets placed around Blarg controlled sections of Gorda City. They were first encountered on the Gorda city ruins on the planet Oltanis. They were created by the Blarg to search for survivors in Gorda City and alert Blarg forces in the area of an enemy presences.
In the year 5354, several Blarg Heavy Interceptors were sent to Gorda City on Oltanis after the city was bombed. The interceptors were sent with the primary purpose of locating any survivors so that they could be wiped out.
An improved version of them were the MegaCorp sentinels in Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. Another improved variant were the Sentinel bots utilized by the likes of Nefarious and Qwark for security in Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
When Ratchet was caught by an interceptor, it would not only turn on the alarms, but also "close" its four propeller looking parts and spin. When it became back to its normal state it would turn on its spotlight thereafter would come in its position. Before that, Ratchet could shoot them and they would take their spinning alarm position, but without actually being in this state, rather they would keep searching.
