With a far superior range and power than the Cannon and Stingray missile, it is capable of bringing down most UFOs, although with medium and large UFOs it may be beneficial to intercept with multiple craft to minimise damage and missed shots. The Avalanche is overall a great starting weapon, although it will often destroy smaller Scout-class crafts, which should be shot down with smaller weapons or attacked while landed.
