Unit Description:
      Similar in concept to the Glaug Eldare Officer's Vehicle operated by the Zentraedi, the Boosted Scout involves the removal of an Iigaa's leg assembly in favour of a powerful thruster unit. This addition basically doubles the size of the small mecha, giving it more durability and more importantly much more thrust. The boosted Iigaa is the weapon of choice for space engagements by the Invid. Because of its larger size, the Mollusk Transports can carrier only half as many boosted scouts, however each of those units is all that more effective as they can engage enemies of the Invid on a more equal footing. Like the standard Iigaa, the Boosted version also comes in an unarmed version. However because of the lack of legs, engaging enemy units in hand to hand is often more difficult, and as such this unit is used almost solely for reconnaissance.
