The Recon is a commonly-deployed unit that can handle most infantry on its own. In the first Battalion Wars game, the Recon was split into two subcategories, Light and Heavy. The Light Recon utilized higher speeds, but the Heavy Recon was equipped with stronger armor and a player-controlled machine gun. The Recon of the second game combines these aspects of the two older units.

Dossier Intel[edit]

Western Frontier[edit]

"Speed and maneuverability make the MX-500 ideal for its role as the "roving eyes" of the Frontier army. With minimal armaments on the base model, this unit should avoid entanglement whenever possible."

Tundran Territories[edit]

"Produced in vast numbers at the Gorgigrad factory complexes, the Volgonorsk sleddoo crawler is a dual-purpose agricultural military vehicle. The combination of a sled-and-track drive and a rear winch guarantees that the ditches of Tundra pose no obstacle."

Solar Empire[edit]

"The Type-2 "White Tiger" reconnaissance buggy can penetrate deep behind enemy lines to rapidly deploy field experts, such as demolitions infantry. The vehicle is rarely utilized, many Solar commanders considering stealth tactics of this nature dishonorable."

Anglo Isles[edit]

The Anglo Isles have not developed this unit.


"The Vladswagon is one of the first "People Carriers" to be adopted for military use. The addition of armor plating and two HMG turrets made a wartime workhorse of this mass-produced family car."

Iron Legion[edit]

The Iron Legion has not developed this unit.
