Jump to navigation Jump to search
This vessel appears to be a surveillance craft. Its structure is very strange and there is no evidence of any crew or cargo. The craft's internals appear to have been intentionally destroyed by the Aliens from a remote location. The craft is armed with small beam weapon. The craft does not appear to be a great threat to the city, but can only be a precursor to more dangerous incursions.  From: Apocalypse Ufopaedia

The Alien Scout Ship (UFO Type 2) is the second type of small UFO. It is mainly used to infiltrate (alien drop) a small squad of aliens into any building (an infestation) within Mega-Primus. Scout Ships will escort larger UFOs in the near future. A single small shield will be equipped to extend its usefulness once stronger and larger UFOs are common. This craft can also be used to search for an X-Com base. It will not attack buildings.

A simple UFO which is a minimal threat unless multiple craft are firing on a slow and large X-Com vehicle. It has low damage tolerance and is easily disabled, or destroyed, by basic craft guns or beam weapons. Missiles may heavily damage or destroy a Scout Ship since its speed is slow compared to its common escort, the Alien Probe.

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

Alien Scout Ship research does not lead to other exotic discoveries.
