Ghost are the ERL's primary scout vehicles.
Ghost are fairly well exposed and have two plasma repeaters. However, these repeaters are typically only effective against infintary ,but its not uncommon for infintary to destroy these ghosts with grenades or concentrated firepower. The ghost is also a fragile vehicle that can be destroyed by rockets or grenades. Brute choopers can ram right through these vehicles with no issue and speeders are much faster then ghosts.
Ghosts only travel 20-50 miles an hour. They are easy targets for rocket launchers or artillery. Normally they are simply used to spot enemy positions then retreat to inform other forces. Also everytime ghosts are engaged they wind up being destroyed. Ghosts typically travel in groups of 2-4.
