Land Based RadarEdit

  • T1 Land Scout: Range of 45
  • T1 Stationary Radar: Range of 115, drain of 20 Energy
  • T2 Stationary Radar: Range of 200, drain of 250 Energy
  • T3 Stationary Radar: Range of 600, Omni (radar, sonar, sees through cloak) Range of 200, Energy Drain of 2000

Air Based RadarEdit

NB : T1 Air Scouts are not equipped with radar, though they boast a wide direct vision range (42).

Sea Based RadarEdit


Radar is one of the Intelligence types. Only specific units have radar, including T3 air scouts, T1 land scouts, immobile Radar structures, as well as most Naval units. Radar can determine location of opposing units, as well as orientation (structure or mobile unit) and terrain status (over water, over land, or flying).

Any units with Stealth cannot be detected by Radar.

Radar Jamming reduces the effectiveness of radar by producing confusing fake signals, but does not eliminate its effect.

Due to its small size, a radar installation is the best structure in the game to take advantage of Adjacency bonuses. By building only 4 T1 power plants around a radar you can reduce its operational costs by 25%, which saves you 500 energy when you upgrade it to T3. If you build it adjacent to a Hydrocarbon Power Plant before building 3 more T1 power plants you can save even more.
