The Waterbug is an amphibious Migou assault landing craft used to deliver Fireant mecha and their supporting Scarab powered armors directly onto defended beaches or harbor facilities. It can carry up to two Fireant and nine Scarabs. While the Waterbug itself is unarmed, the mecha and powered armors it transports can use their weapons while embarked, being secured in half recessed alcoves along the landing craft’s hull.
