the only mission i know of that gives fighters is the Vault mission (not to be confused with the Vault queue mission). it gives the scorpion fighters consumable that goes into a device slot,it launches 3 fighters and recharges fairly slowly, like hangers if they are alive long enough, you can have 6 of these out.
after 49 uses your pretty much out, since the 50th charge makes them dissapear completely. so you only get 49 uses.
