General Information

Official Entry: "The first manned inter-dimensional vehicle produced for the initial exploration of Alien structures. The craft only has a small equipment and armament load and must conduct its excursions with great care."

Cityscape Information

The Explorer is the third X-COM ship that can travel to the Alien Dimension, with the design focus shifting to fighter aircraft. The Explorer is the lightweight of the X-COM combat aircraft.

The Explorer is identical to a Hawk Air Warrior in terms of armament, with hard points for a 2×3 forward weapon and a pair of 1×4 weapons on the sides. The Explorer has much more restrictive module space than a Hawk, having only 4×3 slots.

As with all X-COM interdimensional aircraft, the Explorer does not require fuel and can stay in the air indefinitely.

Despite its respectable combat abilities, the Explorer sees a disastrously short shelf life. This is because by the time X-COM can build an Explorer, the UFO prerequisites for the Retaliator are already available and likely underway. Do not expect to build more than one Explorer before it becomes obsolete, if any at all.
