Available for unlock by GLA 3-star generals, Rebel Ambush allows the general to instantly deploy a group of Rebels and Tunnel Defenders anywhere on the battlefield, seemingly appearing from thin air. Quite how these GLA troops managed to appear in such a way is a mystery, although it is mostly attributed to their stealth training.
A Rebel Ambush often proved an excellent distraction technique if nothing else. A busy enemy commander might not notice a group of GLA troops appearing in his base and they might at least have been able to take out or capture some units/facilities before themselves being killed. The Camouflage upgrade added greatly to the usefulness of the Rebel Ambush, as stealthy GLA troopers placed deep into enemy territory could act as spies. With High Explosive Caches, a group of Tunnel Defenders could cause serious damage to enemy facilities with their TNT charges and the fact that they, along with the Rebels, will explode if crushed by enemy vehicles.
