Alien Bomber (Apocalypse)
The Alien Bomber (UFO Type 7) will be used mainly on attacks made by the aliens on hostile organizations but from time to time will also perform subversion missions and escort other UFOs. To carry out its primary mission it is equipped with a Disruptor Multi-Bomb Launcher capable of dealing immensive damage to X-COM craft and buildings. Its armor/constitution and the use of a Large Disruption Shield makes a tough target.
The Alien Bomber is equipped with an unusual missile launcher that splits into multiple, independently targeted missiles. It also has a light beam weapon to deal with close air combat. There is a limited crew on board.

The Bomber is a craft that the Aliens will keep using until the Control Chamber is destroyed.
The bomber has a double door at the south side of the screen, and a single entry with ramp at the north side of the screen. You must have a squad on each side or else poppers and micronoids will flank you and surprise you outside the ship.
The Bomber is seen during the opening video, though it does not appear ingame until several weeks after the initial incursions.
Bombers are the only Alien ships that carry Micronoids as part of their crews.
