Unit Description:
      During naval battles against the Invid, it was not uncommon to see Invid mecha, especially those without armament, attacking REF ships by ramming them. Such tactics initially took the REF by surprise, as not even the powerful Zentraedi had shown such wilfull disregard for their own lives. The Invid however were a different breed, and the stage 1 pilots were all but automatons directed by the queens as an expendable means to victory. It came as no surprise then, that the Invid would later employ mecha especially suited to this task. Boosted Scouts packed full of explosives began to slam into allied ships with great effect. It was soon clear what mecha these were as the boosted scouts rarely engaged in combat. Even so, the REF had a hell of a time stopping these suicide units before they dealt their damage. Used in conventional Invid forces, singling out the Assault Mecha for destruction was like target a couple of bees in a swarm, one couldn't pursue them without getting stung in return.
