Liset Mantis Nightwave Scimitar Xiphos

The Mantis is a Landing Craft, which can serve as an alternative transportation choice to the Liset. It comes with the Med-Tower air support ability, deploying a Med-Tower resembling a Life Support Capsule, that heals for 100 Health upon each activation, with each Med Tower providing up to 20 healing charges that can be activated by any player.

The Mantis landed in Update 17.5.


Building the Mantis requires the Landing Craft Foundry Segment.
