OverviewEdit

The 'Night Owl' Series Recon Vehicle, otherwise known as the Recon Vehicle is a vehicle in Battle Nations. A standard, overall vehicle, it provides average Offense and Defense, and is relatively inexpensive for a motorized unit.

Early in the game, it offers some decent firepower with its above-average offense (for a multi-hit attack) and range. Its high defensive stats, along with some damage reduction against Damage crushing and Damage piercing damage types, gives it degree of added survivability. However, the Recon needs some additional ranks to beef up those stats, especially Stat-HP HP.

Once the player gets to higher levels and more unit options, the Recon loses its place on the battlefield to more dedicated damage-units (e.g. Snipers and Rockets) and dedicated front-line units (e.g. Tanks).

In PvP, the Recon could be an interesting choice considering its high defensive stats and high offense combined with its low Unit Value. Also, it can target flying units which might allow it to dispose of any low-level aircraft like the Sopwith Spiderwasp. However, any sort of armor will invalidate its Machine Guns.

Players can get a free Recon in the mission Rescue to the Recon. Another can be obtained during The Siege of Marin. In various locations, wrecked Recon vehicles can be found, and they will provide a few Gold if raided. However, they cannot be recovered like the wreck in the Rescue to the Recon mission.
