The PVS Scarab


Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

The Scarab is very similar to our Centaur: We believe the Vasudans stole the design of this ship from us. It is used for in flight rearming of fighters and bombers. In longer engagements, these ships can mean the difference between victory and defeat. The major difference between this ship and the Centaur is that the Scarab is unmanned.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


All support ships in both games are pretty much the same, they're pretty much sitting ducks so don't expect these things to make it through a firefight, and if they should explode, make it far away from you.


The only difference between this and the Centaur is that it has the stop speed of only 70 m/s, while at the top setting, the Centaur has 100 m/s.


Despite the tech room saying that the Scarab is unmanned, examination of its debris will reveal a dead Vasudan.
