Man that guy is funny... Neither of the other sides really gets good surveillance. I mean I wouldn't count the radar van scan as surveillance. Mig scouting is about the best thing you can do. I mean Migs are hella cheap, and you could do a flyover through a few patriots if you have a group of them. I gotta say it is a great advantage to get that little spy drone right from the go ahead, but it can also be pretty easily thwarted. You'll notice that both GLA and China have easy ways of detecting the spy drones and other stealthed units. GLA can use a radar van, and the Chinese Lotus can detect stealthed units too. So there you go. Equal sides. Very equal. Indeed.
