OverviewEdit

Scout SC1 CineFuryXelNaga1

A Scout under fire

The Scout is a versatile and powerful protoss fighter[1] though are generally considered by the protoss to be more for scouting purposes.[2] However, Scouts are easily a match for most other craft, employing anti-matter missiles against aerial targets and dual photon blasters against ground targets.[2] The Dark Templar maintain(ed) their own Scouts and equipped them with technology to engage in FTL travel through the Void.[3]

Scouts flying high

In their days of service, Scouts served as point guards for the protoss fleet,[2] being maintained in the hangars of carriers,[3] though were often called upon to engage hostile forces.[2] Shortly before the war against the zerg, recent developments in enhanced sensor systems and high-power engines further increased its effectiveness.[1]

Since the end of the Brood War, the Scout is steadily being phased out by the Phoenix.[4] However, it is still used by the Tal'darim[5] and Daelaam.[6]
