Force Recon is a Mission Supports.

NON-Defcon ability that allows a player to call in regular army troops to defend a location such as an uplink or to attack enemy forces.

For a battalion to be able to deploy force recon it must be researched at the barracks; there is a total of three upgrades (force recon 1, 2 and 3). Each level will deploy a stronger force of regular army troops. It is highly useful as it sends in helpful troops to either defend a location or tie down an enemy force.

OverviewEdit

Only a large Force Recon units are strong enough to defeat a few forces of their more elite counterparts from the Joint Strike Force, European Federation Enforcer Corps, and Spetsnaz Guard Brigades; but will be easily pulverized if outnumbered or outmaneuvered by a competent tactician unless the player uses them wisely. Deploying them in the open is also inadvisable because they are weaker than player-controlled forces. They can also deploy tanks to help out at level 2 and 3.

Bear in mind that Force Recon units have no shields or advanced combat systems: a regular Army tank unit will be obliterated by a player-controlled tank unit, even though it can potentially destroy player-controlled transports/riflemen.

During a battle the level of Force Recon is affected by the number of command points available to the player (i.e., it takes up to 6 CP to call in a level 3 force recon support). It also only limits you to only having 4 "levels" of Force Recon on the battlefield at a time, for example after deploying one level 3 Force Recon and one level 1, more cannot be called until some of the forces are destroyed.
