Sensor pods are the main weapons for the Orca. They can allow the fighter plane to detect Nod or Scrin units that are stealthed, while out on patrol from their Airfield. These are researched at GDI's Tech Center building. Orcas used these after the recapture of Langley Air Force Base, near Hampton Roads Naval Base against Nod opposers. A Deploy Sensor pod is another weapon for them to track down enemy movements and stealthed units on duty.
