Detection is a unit condition that can be toggled by various events.
Detection is triggered by returning a strong enough radar signature or by being within visual range. The player can see all enemy units that are detected by any ally unit. Detection can be used as a conditional to trigger events in the Mission Editor, but there is not way to toggle the flag directly. It is unknown if the detected status can be reverted such as when taking evasive action.
The condition has several game uses
- Detected units appear on the NAV map.
- When allowed, wingmen will automatically break off and engage new threats.
- The condition can be used for triggers in the mission editor.
