Flare SC2 DevGame1

A flare

A flare is a piece of terran technology used for illumination.

During the Guild Wars, Confederate soldiers could fire green flares, used to light up landing zones and illuminate enemy targets.[1] Also, the A-13 grenade launcher was originally used to provide illumination on the battlefield, before being configured to fire flash grenades.[2]
