The radar van was a GLA-owned van with a mobile radar uplink, used during the War against the GLA.

Background

Purchased from an arms dealer, the radar van provided a mobile radar uplink. It could be upgraded with the radar scan technology, allowing it to periodically reveal areas of the battlefield otherwise invisible, and also reveal stealth units.

While this unit was not a combatant unit, it could be used in base patrols. This mobile radar solution also meant that unless the commander would not lose radar even if his command center was destroyed or affected by an EMP blast. This also meant that if the radar van was hit by an EMP blast, its owner's radar would go offline unless he had several radar vans operational.

Trivia

  • There was a cut ability associated with the radar van, called the "radar jammer". It allowed the radar van to cast a shroud in the surrounding area, similar to the mobile gap generator from the original Red Alert.
