Pinned Unit sight range

    • Unit sight range

      Greetings everyone,

      I am an old hand at S1914 that decided to give CoW a try. So far I have been very impressed with terrain features which is something S1914 sorely needs.

      Anyway I have been lurking for several weeks now reading up on the very useful guides you all have posted but I cant seem to find any info on unit sight range.

      I noticed the other day that when I moved my light tank away from a province that I was defending with infantry/aa/at I lost the count of the enemy troops I got the ? while previously I had a detailed count.

      I immediately ordered the tank back to the city and it lit up the enemy troops again. Thus clearly different units have different sight ranges does anyone have a list?

      Many thanks in advance
    • I believe the sight range for the majority of units is 42 Km clear view, 70 km "fuzzy" view.

      Armored cars have the longest sight range at I believe 50km clear view.




      The expert is @DxC if we can get his attention :)



      Edited to add a couple of key words for better searching. Sight radius, Sight range, visual range, visual radius, how far can units see, distance unit can see.

      If they are stacked in a wing do the lower radius aircraft also damage unit outside it's range, but in the range of the higher radius aircraft?
      Yes, the largest existing radius applies to all planes in a stack.
