|The SF Scorpion|
FS1 Tech Room Description
We originally thought the Scorpion was the Shivans best fighter. However, we now believe that the Scorpion is nothing more than a Shivan scout ship. Their vast numbers and seeming unimportance to the Shivan war effort leads us to this belief. Regardless of its purpose, the Scorpion is highly maneuverable, fast, and difficult to destroy. It can also do damage equivalent to our space superiority fighters.
In the event that you encounter Scorpions, regard them as a Class C threat.
The Scorpion is lighter and more agile then most Shivan craft, but not particularly fast. Armament is middle-of-the-road and neither impressive nor laughable, while protection is on the lightish side but still capable of standing up to enemy fire briefly. It does posess the unique abilty to move in three dimensions at once, something not often seen on lower difficulty levels but very annoying on higher ones.
All in all the Scorpion is quite comparable to the GTF Apollo. It does most of the same things with about the same level of competency at them.
