The SODAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging) Array is a Foehn support vehicle that not only detects nearby hidden enemies, but once deployed, it also enhances the firepower of all units wielding Golden Rocket launchers.

Official description

Yuri's psychic illusion technology is a major threat to the Foehn forces. Constant attacks with cloaked and subterranean units brought many casualties to their already limited armies. A dedicated unit for early detection and warning was required and the answer came with a unique SOnic Detection And Ranging system. Using a wind profiler based on Foehn's wind manipulation technology it became possible to measure and read the scattering of sound waves by atmospheric turbulence and detect any sort of suspicious activity from objects not noticeable with the human eye or standard radars. In order for the system to work, a SODAR Array must be deployed first, it does not work in its mobile form.

The SODAR Array is also capable of collecting and sending data on wind behavior to the units which rely on the so-called "Golden Rocket" weapon. This data allows them to set the launch coordinates and modify the rocket's flight path more accurately so that it hits their targets with bigger precision and deals even more damage than usual.[1]

Overview

Assessment

+
  • Can detect cloaked and submerged units.
  • Increases the firepower of nearby Golden Rockets by 15%.
  • Fairly large radius coverage.
  • Quite durable.

  • Expensive.
  • Unarmed.
  • Lightly armored.
  • Vulnerable against aircraft and anti-armor weapons.
  • Must be stationary and deployed to function.
  • When deployed, this unit can not be affected by Tech Machine Shop or repair structure command (like MCV's). It can only be manually repaired by Minermites and other repair vehicles in this state.
