Mobile Sensor Arrays were used by GDI and Nod in the Second Tiberium War. Their only purpose was detecting cloaked and subterranean units and buildings.


In order to be used the MSA it had to be deployed. This was necessary because the highly sensitive microphones and scanner arrays were otherwise distracted by the vehicles own vibration and motor noise.

GDI commanders used these units to early detect incoming Nod surprise attacks. Also it was valuable for assaults on cloaked bases.

Nod commanders on the other hand used the MSA to detect either enemy Nod commanders, mostly during the Nod Civil War. In addition to that, Limpet Drones could be uncovered and destroyed to prevent infiltration. They were replaced with better sensors, based on lighter, combat-worthy scouting units.
