A Swallow is an decoy drone used to lure enemy heat-seeking missiles away from a Colonial vessel.

These devices were deployed from Raptor 478 to successfully lure away two missiles shot at it by a Cylon Raider during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (Miniseries).

The Raptor pilot deploys these and other devices by order to the ECO.
