General Information

Apoc ufo1 icon.png

The Alien Probe (UFO Type 1) is the unmanned basic ship of the Aliens in Apocalypse. It is more of a nuisance than a real threat, as it is lightly armed with Light Disruptor Beam (which is apparently destroyed in the crash, since it is not recoverable) and does not transport troops or have any crew. It is very fragile and easily destroyed even early in the game, so salvaging one of these can be tricky. The Probe usually accompanies Alien Scout Ships on their raids.

The structure of the vehicle suggests an organic construction process. The skin is composed of a strong and unusual compound that allows the craft to travel without harm through the Dimension Gates. This unmanned craft is equipped with an unusual type of beam weapon. Its limited capability suggests that it is purely designed to collect information and then return to the Alien Dimension.

Cityscape Information

Alien Probe

The Aliens will cease production of this craft after week four, however, it still may be available to the Aliens as an escort if some remain in the Alien Dimension. The Probe does not provide any further research except its own Craft entry, so recovery of one is not a priority.
