Cyberdisc

The Cyberdisc is a flying heavy weapons platform equipped with a devastating plasma cannon and covered in tough armour plating. When first encountered the Cyberdisc will be in a closed disc like form not unlike a miniature UFO. When the Cyberdisc is ready to attack it opens up to reveal a terrifying mass of tentacles bustling with heavy weaponry. It will take a lot of firepower to take down and it also comes equipped with alien grenades. They are one of the fastest ground units and can fly, using both abilities to overflank your soldiers.

The Cyberdisc will explode on death, damaging everything in a small radius.

Note that Cyberdiscs will always work in groups with Drone units. The Drones can repair the Cyberdisc. You might want to kill the Drones so the Cyberdisc cannot be healed. Just make sure the reward in doing so is greater than the risk.

  • If killed during a successful mission a Cyberdisc Wreck will be recovered.
