I think I can hear them...
- Listening Outpost

The Listening Outpost has changed since its last deployment as part of the Iron Dragon. Found much too useful to remain in its previous role of a late-deployed surveillance unit, Listening Outposts have been recognized as the perfect reconnaissance unit for Chinese commanders to gain the intelligence they need as soon as they deploy to a battle zone. As such, a concerted industrial effort has streamlined the production of the Listening Outpost and allowed them to be assembled quickly and easily, with no stringent support requirements, at Chinese Command Centers. They maintain their watchful communications scanning gear, the effectiveness of which is enhanced when the Outpost parks at a location - a location Outpost drivers are still trained to pick carefully, in combination with on-board systems making them blend into the background when stopped.
