Cyclone is the best Confederate scouting tool. It is a flying unit with huge sight range (10) an incredible amount of speed (85 at the base). On top of this it is a flying unit so going over obstacles, cliffs, water, and basically, every terrain is no issue for this bird. This unit takes over the scouting role from Assault infantry and takes it to the whole new level. Scouting forests for hidden Resistance infantry or water for Submarine units, Cyclone role is cemented in mid to late game and as such you need to have few of these birds at all times. The only problem with it is maybe little bit high CP cost, but considering how unforgiving is lack of information on enemy movement or invisible units, it is the cost one should be glad to pay.
