Russian Technology at its finest!
A relatively simple structure, the Radar Outpost provides radar coverage for any commander that has it and enough power to operate it. It can now also operate in four different modes.
Since the Command Bunker cannot mount any radar installation of any kind, the mission of providing radar coverage for a certain area was deferred to the Radar Tower. Filled with humming radios, reliable sensors and a lot of radar plots, this unsophisticated building is a must-have for any logical Russian commander. Now, with large parts of Russia's elaborate anti-air radar network crippled after years of extensive fighting, the Federation is now using smaller Radar Towers in order to maintain full coverage and protect its population from airborne attacks. The Radar Tower can operate in four different modes: The Active Radar mode is initiated by default and grants access to the radar map. The Passive Radar mode reduces signal emissions to a minimum which allows the Outpost to render itself untraceable while detecting hidden enemies in the vicinity. The Air Raid mode optimizes the system for aircraft tracking and allows nearby AA to defeat airborne threats more efficiently. Finally, Russian commanders with the necessary clearance to order electronic warfare operations can activate the so-called Blackout mode to scramble enemy communications and sensor readings.
Once built, these outposts will provide radar coverage for the Russian army, but they may also be upgraded into two other types of outposts with more specialized functions but which no longer provide radar coverage:
