Official Entry: "The development of the Retaliator shifts the emphasis from exploration to attack. Our Engineers have at last produced a craft which can match the capabilities of many of the Alien ships."
The Retaliator is the fourth X-COM designed hybrid aircraft. It is the mid-weight of the X-COM fighter aircraft. With the right armament and equipment, this aircraft is very formidable in combat.
The Retaliator has two large 2×4 shaped weapon hard points on the sides, and one 2×3 front weapon. The equipment space comparable to a Hawk Air Warrior with a capacity of 4×4 equipment slots.
The three large weapon hard points allow Retaliators to arm a host of powerful weapons including the Medium Disruptor Beam and the Disruptor Bomb Launcher. With enough of these, it's not uncommon for a small wing of Retaliators to shoot down capital class UFOs while taking minimal damage in return.
|Weapons Slots||2x4 2x4 2x3|
- 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.
