The article claims Police Hovercars are "always on active patrol" - but are do they actually patrol at all? I believe they scramble if an illegal flier appears, or if someone directly attacks a Megapol building, but otherwise stay put. Also, maybe I'm taking it too literally, but they don't seem to be Phoenix Hovercars used by the police, either - they have substantially less staying power. Darkpast (talk) 22:59, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

It looks like some artistic license taken with the prose. I think it would be better to say that poor relations will cause any police hovercars responding to incidents to also attack X-Com craft. They are indeed about half a Phoenix Hovercar at best. Their main value comes from (usually) being the first responders to engage with incoming threats. NKF (talk) 05:04, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
