Phoenix Hovercar (Apocalypse)
Official Entry: "The Phoenix is manufactured by Marsec mainly for military purposes. This sleek but rugged vehicle is used for reconnaissance in dangerous environments such as the Mars colony. A variety of weapon and engine configurations can be used and a well equipped Phoenix is more than a match for a police Hovercar."
The Phoenix Hovercar is a simple military flying car for agents that want to fight in style. It sports two standard small weapon hardpoints and a normal upgrade module slot. It's a cheap combat vehicle that is small and fast enough to dodge most incoming hostile attacks. It's best used in groups or as support for hoverbike fleets.
The Hovercar gets renewed viability in the late game thanks to Disruption Shields. Its 2x2 cargo bay can fit a shield, giving an extra 200HP buffer that more than triples its endurance. This lets it survive against alien missiles and weapons that would otherwise destroy swarm craft.
