Vultures are very fast anti-ground skirmish units which are very efficient against Light units. When upgraded with Ion Thrusters, Vultures are the fastest-moving ground units in the game. They can also be upgraded to lay Spider Mines, which burrow into the ground and wait for ground units to come into range before detonating. Certain ground units, those with the Hover attribute, do not trigger spider mines. This notably includes workers and other Vultures.== Unit Information ==
