The structure of the vehicle suggests an organic construction process. The skin is composed of a strong and unusual compound that allows the craft to travel without harm through the Dimension Gates. This unmanned craft is equipped with an unusual type of beam weapon. Its limited capability suggests that it is purely designed to collect information and then return to the Alien Dimension.

The Alien Probe (UFO Type 1) is the most basic of alien crafts. Probes are primarily escort craft for other small UFOs and cannot infiltrate or bomb buildings but may be used for searching for an X-Com base.

A simple UFO which is a minimal threat unless multiple craft are firing on a slow and large X-Com vehicle. It has very low damage tolerance and is easily destroyed by basic craft guns or beam weapon. Missiles may not be fast enough to hit. A probe is fast but when near its escort objective, the speed advantage is minor.

Crash Recovery
Unmanned. UFO is recovered without battlescape combat. The Probe has a small number of alien lifeforms onboard. If downed, the crash-landing is fatal to all aliens and will also destroy the weapon.

Research Alien Probe research does not lead to other exotic discoveries. X-Com air vehicles can ignore this nuisance craft unless wanting to complete all possible research.
