Unit of the Day highlights Cartel’s skilful unit, the Scout CGS.
Originally, the “Cadillac Gage Scout” was a 4×4 light reconnaissance vehicle designed for the export market that was first announced in October 1977 at the Association of the United States Army in Washington D.C.
After it was bought by Indonesia and Egypt in the eighties, the Cartel’s attention was drawn on this light and sneaky vehicle. The shadowy organization always kept an eye on new military technologies. Keeping in mind all the upgrades it could receive, the Scout CGS appeared like a very useful vehicle to them.
Indeed, in Act of Aggression, the newly baptised Scout CGS was upgraded with the “Cartel treatment”. Its rear turret was equipped with a dual Heavy Machine Gun in order to blow infantry up.
Cartel beloved optical camouflage was also applied. And a vision technology improved significaly the unit’s range of sight.
And the four soldiers that can fit in are over-protected by the fact that the Scout can fire without breaking its stealth.
If the enemy is not aware of your presence, you can strike from nowhere and leave unnoticed.
An improved version of this 4 wheels, more lethal, saw the light. Still stealth, its dual HMG were replaced by a flamethrower. Granting them a better range and a damage, but removing the optical camouflage when firing.
As their sight range were increased, they were granted the ability to detect stealth units.
