Scouting is the act of revealing the position of enemy units and buildings.


Any unit can be used for scouting, however, some units are much better suited for the job thanks to their high visibility radius and/or their speed. In addition to that, the Allied GPS and the Soviet Spy Plane can be used to scout from a distance.

Suitable units Edit

all Aircraft are extremely well suited for scouting. If that is not possible, the following units can be used instead:

  • Ranger - Excellent speed, excellent radius, weak armor
  • APC - Good speed, moderate radius, moderate armor
  • Mobile Flak - Good speed, moderate radius, excellent armor
  • Submarine - Cannot be seen by ground units.
  • Spy - Can sometimes be embedded in bases unnoticed.
