General Information

Official Entry: "The Valkyrie is the standard military vehicle manufactured by Marsec. Its sleek lines appear reminiscent of old rocket designs, but it is a fully capable anti-grav dependent craft with a variety of engine configurations. There is space for many types of armaments and equipment loads. It is capable of solar system travel and is feared by the criminal cartels when it is used to police the space lanes to Mars and beyond."

Cityscape Information

The Valkyrie Interceptor is a troop transport with some combat capabilities. It offers two long weapon hardpoints capable of mounting the long-barreled Lancer laser cannons. It provides three standard modules worth upgrade slots. Because it's much larger than the Hovercar and has a slow turning rate, it makes for a poor combat vehicle on its own. It's best used in transportation roles and for providing medium support fire for Hoverbike or hovercar squadrons.

Both the Valkyrie and the Hawk Air Warrior can function as bomber craft as well. By outfitting them with the extremely long-range Retribution Missile Launcher and hovering at maximum altitude, you can strike enemy buildings with pinpoint accuracy from a very long distance. This is useful if your sole purpose is to bankrupt a specific organization by destroying their buildings, as it's possible to fire the missiles from an extremely long distance, then turn back and dock at base before they can send out craft to intercept you.

Note that the initial Valkyrie with which X-Com begins the game comes equipped with one Cargo Module and one Passenger Module. Purchased Valkyries do not arrive with these modules.

1 Armor is given as Top/Front/Left/Right/Rear/Bottom. The in-game Ufopedia rather misleadingly displays only a single armor value, the sum of the values on all six of the vehicle's facings.


The beta name of the Valkyrie Interceptor was "Starfire Interceptor".
