|Faction||Empire of the Rising Sun|
|Brief||Fast moving Imperial scouts relay information on the enemy by sometimes driving right through them.|
Despite the Empire's reliance on high technology, the Imperial military is no less dependent on proper reconnaissance than any other army. While the Allies prefer to utilise spies and SR-8 Thrush planes, and the Soviets can easily turn on of their many surveillance satellites onto the battlefield, the Empire's lack of even radar has forced them to take a simpler solution; mount a group of trained soldiers on speedy motorcycles and dispatch them to speed across the battlefield.
Equipped with powerful radios to relay enemy positions and forces, the recon team speeds from position to position, most of the time fairly safely due to the lack of reaction time that the enemy has to recognise and target the threat. Despite this, the fog of war quickly renders such information moot, meaning that the gathered intel is best acted upon as quickly as possible.
