"Knowing? Half of the battle? Seven-tenths still doesn't cut it."

Tactical Analysis

  • All Seeing Eye: The Starlight Intelligence Vehicle is a unit unique to the IPDI. When deployed, it is capable of establishing comprehensive vision coverage over an enormous area, and stealth detection over an impressive (albeit smaller) radius as well. This enables IPDI commanders to easily keep track of large areas of land around their bases, and keep tabs on their enemy's movements.
  • Omniscience: The most powerful tool of the Starlight however, is the ability to intercept enemy communications. Using a powerful decryption engine, enemies within a certain distance of the Starlight will have their current issued orders displayed to the IPDI commander. This allows the IPDI commander to see exactly what the enemy commander has planned and react accordingly. (Do note: this system doesn't work against undetected stealth units).
  • Powerless: Naturally, the Starlight is completely unarmed. The sheer amount of equipment in the truck also makes it heavy and relatively slow. In addition. the lack of armor makes it easy for an enemy to pick it off. Starlights also take considerable time to deploy or pack up, and are thus ill-suited for constantly moving front lines.
