The Radar Van was the GLA's solution to the need for battlefield radar.

Background

Purchased from an Arms Dealer, the Radar Van provided a mobile source of radar for any GLA commander. The Radar Van could be upgraded with the Radar Scan technology, allowing it to periodically reveal areas of the battlefield otherwise not visible, and also reveal stealth units.

Whilst this unit was not a combat unit, it could be used in base patrols, with for example Quad cannon's which could detect, and quickly deal with enemy covert agents. This mobile radar solution also meant that unless the commander would not lose radar even if his command centre was affected by EMP. Of course this also meant that if the Radar Van was affected by EMP radar would go off-line unless he had several radar vans operational.

As this unit was a non-combatant it is unable to gain veterancy by running down infantry or by collecting scraps from the battlefield.

Trivia

  • Gen1 Radar Jammer Icons

    Radar Jammer icons

    Radar Jammer is a removed ability of the Radar Van, which allowed it to set itself and the near surroundings in shroud, similar to the Mobile Gap Generators from Red Alert 1.



  • ZH Unused Radar Van Scan Icons

    Unused icons

    It seems that the developer team created a new selection picture for the Radar Van Scan in Zero Hour. The problem is that it uses the same name as the old selection picture in the game, therefore this one is overridden and never shown.
