The Scourge is a Scorpion Cell's anti-tank infantry mixed with EMP technology.
With Rashidi's personal training and advanced weapon-crafting talents, the Scourges joined his ranks after the Scorpion Cell suffered a series of severe losses to heavy enemy armor on its own home territories. The custom weapon he is equipped with is extremely destructive to tanks, although its shots cannot be concentrated at a single point due to its strong recoil, making it a rather inaccurate weapon.
The key characteristic of the Scourge's weapon is that, shockingly to the Cell's enemies, it actually makes use of a short EMP effect. The Allies whose outposts' have already been raided by these troops believe that the Scorpion Cell may have scavenged a Soviet base of their failed African campaign, and reverse-engineered the looted EMP equipment. However, there are those who believe Rashidi has received help from someone even more familiar with the EMP technology.
With a Psychic Amplifier in Zaire we managed to acquire the Cell's Scourges. These troops seem to be designated for anti-tank combat with EMP weapons.
