The Predator Drone is USA's tier 2 scout unit. This fast and inexpensive drone is the only aerial scout unit in the mod. They are particularly effective at spotting targets for artillery and as decoy for protecting US aircraft from heavy anti air fire.

Lore

Once only able to be requested from sources outside of the normal battlefield chain of command, the Predator Drone has become of crucial importance to the USA after the sudden development of anti-satellite technologies in the 2020s meant it could no longer rely on orbital reconnaissance as much as it had done for decades.

Now, these simple but effective unmanned drones can be readied and launched from any American airfield at a moment's notice, providing crucial long-range intelligence data to all USA forces. They are particularly effective when spotting targets for artillery or spying the way for other aircraft - but they should be considered entirely disposable, as stealth technology proved too expensive to implement to their default design and they possess no real armor. They can be upgraded to remedy their weaknesses in armor and can use their Scanner Sweep ability to detect enemy units and become stealthed much like the former Spy Drone.
