Unit Description:
      Though the massive fleets of the Zentraedi Clone Army are vast, the emptiness of space is even vaster. In order to find their prey and bring the full force of Zentraedi warmachine against the enemy, the fleets deploy many smaller scout ships with advanced sensor arrays. Typically deployed to the perimeter of the fleet, these small vessels come the depths of solar systems and other areas to locate the enemy. Because of their size, they are woefully armed with only a couple of laser and missile batteries aligning its hull. Any weapons, including its wing of Aerospace fighters, are typically used only in a defensive manner as the Tou Redir will usually avoid combat. The usefullness of the Tou Redir was increased in 1815 when the ship was equipped with the smaller theatre scout, which almost doubled its potential search radius. Many Tou Redirs were destroyed in the holocaust, as they formed the majority of Dolza's fleet, but many more still exist in both the survivors and in rogue fleets.
