Stingray Missile

The Stingray is an adequate weapon, capable of taking down Small and Medium-sized UFOs. It has a longer range (30 km) than the armaments of Small Scouts, Medium Scouts, Abductors, and Harvesters, and an Interceptor armed with dual Stingrays can usually down even the Medium-sized crafts.

Large Scouts have a weapon range of 34 km; against them, your Interceptors will sustain some damage if armed solely with Stingrays or other short-range weapons.

The Stingray is not suitable against Large and Very Large UFOs.

This weapon is used in UFO: Enemy Unknown. For the Terror from the Deep equivalent, refer to the AJAX.

The reload time given in the in-game UFOpaedia is incorrect; the value stated here is based on empirical tests. The Stingray's accuracy of 70% is the ONLY craft weapon accuracy to be correctly stated in the in-game UFOpaedia; all the others are incorrect due to a bug. The Stingray coincidentally having the same firepower and accuracy may have been responsible for this bug being missed during development.
