The Spy Plane is a support power available to Commanders from Nod. Its GDI counterpart is the Radar Scan.

Strategy

Usage

The following is a list of differences for the Spy Plane from the Radar Scan.

  • Advantages:
    • Gives CP by revealing enemies (+10 CP per enemy revealed; limit is 100 CP).
    • Effective radius is greater than Radar Scan.
  • Disadvantages:
    • With enough skill, enemies can shoot down the Spy Plane before it can begin revealing them. Surprisingly, the Ramjet Rifle is one of the best weapons to take out the Spy Plane due to its armor piercing bullets that can hit the plane near instantly. On the other hand, rocket launchers (be it infantry or vehicles) with lock-on will have a hard time achieving this task due to the speed of the plane and the limited range of the lock-on.
    • Cannot reveal enemies through obstacles such as terrain and buildings.
    • Enemies are revealed lesser in the minimap.
    • More expensive than Radar Scan.
