The Kneall Prototype is an Alien AI ship and is part of the Kneall Fleet.


The Kneall Prototype is a Kneall fleet ship added in the recent Alien AI update, along with a few others (like the Bruiser and Outrider).


Unlike other Kneall Ships, the Kneall Prototype will maneuver to a range of 0-500 studs away from its target. It is able to fight more effectively with this closer range allowing it to usually turn its side to the enemy.
