I have played several scenarios which hinged upon using older reconnaissance aircraft, e.g the Russian side in Korean Missile Crisis. In those scenarios, reconnaissance pods have a maximal range of 5nm. This contrasts with 50nm for the Mk. 1 Eyeball.

I am curious what is meant by the 5nm range. Does the pod identify everything within 5nm? Most things? Or is it limited like eyeball visual?

The 5nm range seems both too small for large targets and too large for infantry in the open. Is there some rule being applied which isn't immediately clear?

I believe certain ground units have hidden modifiers for concealment value. Like a seal team is harder to spot than a tank platoon I believe the pods remove or lower that modifier based on level of technology
