Unit Description:
      The medium mobile hive is believed to be the standard Hive for the Invid. Far superior to its smaller brethren, the Medium Hive has additional thrusters, increased shielding and dramatically more mecha for combat. It has also displayed greater firing options, suggesting more sophisticated handling of the plasma and computer systems. With heavy defenses, the Medium Hive is a decent match for Zentraedi Cruisers. Like all Mobile Hives, it has the inherent difficulties in fighting protracted battles. Since much of its offensive firepower comes from its built-up store of plasma, intense battles can quickly exhaust these reserves and leave it dependant upon its mecha. On the ground, the hive is well defended and for the resistance forces on Earth, attacking a base of this magnitude required considerable resources and planning. The Medium hives served primarily as sub-regional control centres, helping to regulate the areas in and around them while the Larger hives still retained overall control.
