The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

The radar tower[2] was a terran structure that scans for enemy signatures inside a wide radius within the fog of war. Uncloaked units in the fog appeared as small red exclamation marks on the map. The tower emits an alarm when enemy units are detected.[3]

The radar tower was not a detector, but it granted detection to nearby missile turrets.[4] The position of the radar tower and its sensing radius is visible to enemies.


In earlier builds the radar tower was an upgrade to the sensor tower.

The radar tower became the sensor tower with the name changed. The new version of the radar tower (in the WWI 2008 build) remained as the same appearance and abilities of the old sensor tower.[1] However, it was later renamed again to the sensor tower.[5]
