Unit Description:
      The Iigaa Light Mecha is the standard combat craft of the Invid Forces. Deployed enmass from the Mollusk Transports, any major combat against the Invid will see a sky full of these light craft. Small, fragile and piloted by an expendable and undeveloped stage I invid, they are not very effective on their own, unless acting as simple reconnaissance scouts. However in combat they are never alone, and always appear in great numbers, such that the enemies of the Invid simply don't have enough guns to shoot all of them down in time. Because of a relatively high thrust, the Iigaa can be effective in both space and the atmosphere. The mecha also comes in an unarmed version, known simply as the Iigaa Scout. As its name suggests this craft is often reconnaissance and patrol. During the occupation the Iigaa was one of the craft most dreaded by the resistance as its appearance often heralded the coming of larger, more powerful mecha. The Iigaa scout can also engage enemy units in hand to hand combat with its claws.
