Description

The Sparrow is a light scout that can be built from a Radar Tower, making it the only plane that is available without a Plane Factory. Such an accessible scouting option is invaluable to those without access to planes, but is generally outclassed by the faster Swift and larger Owl.

Tactics and Strategy

The Sparrow is unarmed and fragile, but has the benefit that it can be morphed from a basic radar tower. This makes airborne scouting in the early game available regardless of which factory is chosen.

It can also be built directly from the Airplane Plant, but is mostly inferior to the other choices available there like the Swift and the Owl.
