General Information

Dimension Probe
Dimension Probe UFOPedia picture

This unmanned automated probe is designed to explore the Alien Dimension and has minimal armaments and defenses. The Probe will enable X-COM to test its new adaptation of the Aliens inter-dimensional technology. Exploration is a vital requirement for developing further knowledge of the Alien threat and the probe is just the first step.

This is the first X-COM-created craft. It is a test vehicle designed to be able travel through the Dimensional Gates, and is a springboard for development of further advanced aircraft.

It carries an extensive sensor package for analysis of the Alien Dimension, allowing further progress in the Biochemistry lab.

The Dimension Probe only has one 2 × 2 weapon slot. It can be equipped with weapons such as the Light Disruptor Beam to harass invading alien craft or to support standard vehicles when not exploring. Fairly capable of dodging most attacks, it can be a nuisance to a foe, but not much more unless in sufficient numbers or as a back-up for other combat units.

The Dimension Probe draws energy directly from the Alien Dimension and does not need to refuel. In addition to Dimension Gate travel, this is one of the hallmark features of all X-COM hybrid aircraft.

1 Armor is given as Top/Front/Left/Right/Rear/Bottom. The in-game Ufopedia rather misleadingly displays only a single armor value, the sum of the values on all six of the vehicle's facings.
2 Falsely assigned to MarSec ingame. Normally, all equipment and craft that can be manufactured is assigned X-COM as manufacturer, this here seems to be an oversight from the Debug/Beta versions.


  • The use of this ship to explore the Alien Dimension for the first time is strictly optional. Any hybrid aircraft can be used for this role.
