The Corvette is one of the Alien's initial methods of assaulting cities in terror missions and attacking Xenonauts bases, it is also used in conventional ground attacks. However the Corvette's land attack roles are eventually replaced by the Landing Ship.
Successful ground recovery of Corvette leads to automatic research description of Corvette, thus opening a new research project Alien Electronics.
The corvette is a notoriously difficult UFO to assault, and also becomes one of the most commonly seen UFOs in the mid game as it will eventually preform almost every single Alien Mission at some point before being replaced.

At this point Officers start making their first appearance in the game and the Androns make their debut. Guards remain the mainstay of the alien forces. Non-Combatants start becoming fewer in number with only a single non-combatant onboard each UFO (barring Andron UFOs, they don't have non-combatants).
Corvettes are also the first UFO capable of preforming Terror Missions and Base Attacks.
