Science Vessel

Terran Science Vessel

Description Edit

The Science Vessel is high-tech aerial support unit used to detect cloaked or burrowed units. It has the innate ability to cast Matrix, providing targeted units with additional health, and can be upgraded to use the powerful Irradiate and EMP abilities. Has a below average speed for being an air unit but a good speed relative to other casters, and isn't particularly durable. Has no basic attack of its own.
