General Information

Apoc ufo2 icon.png

Like the Alien Probe, the Alien Scout Ship (UFO Type 2) is an unmanned and relatively harmless vessel that does not have any serious impact on the research. However, one major difference is that Scout Ship can and will drop alien raiders into the city buildings. Although it is usually a good idea to destroy them before they do so, you might want to let them drop the troops so you can capture them and their equipment. The raiding party apparently dies a slow (or fast), horrible, and incredibly painful death if the Scout Ship is shot down, so you don't have to fight for the wreck. The small disruptor beam and shield are either destroyed in the crash or the crew spent their final moments destroying it, because they are unrecoverable.

This vessel appears to be a surveillance craft. Its structure is very strange and there is no evidence of any crew or cargo. The craft's internals appear to have been intentionally destroyed by the Aliens from a remote location. The craft is armed with small beam weapon. The craft does not appear to be a great threat to the city, but can only be a precursor to more dangerous incursions.
