I have quite a bit of virtual servers to IP address mapping which I would like
to export / extract out.  Heard these are in ucs file format.

How can I read / export them out?

UCS is just another zipped file and once you exported that into your machine, just open the archive (as you can to zip or rar) and look for the "/config/bigip.conf". this txt file contain the virtual servers

below is the listing of all config file content scope

Stores all configuration objects for managing local application traffic, such as virtual servers, load balancing pools, profiles, and SNATs.
Another mean is via the tmsh of the partition e.g. to get the entire config is to use tmsh save sys config file /var/tmp/myconfig.txt @ https://devcentral.f5.com/questions/listing-a-complete-config-with-partitions-tmsh
