EffectEdit

This ruse allows the player to create decoy units to simulate an army. Decoy units are produced and then launched in this sector in order to simulate an attack. However, decoy units do not do any damage of their own. According to some players, decoy units can be detected due to their brown hue. An example of what appears to be a Decoy Offensive is displayed in the first trailer for R.U.S.E when one player sends over boatloads of semi-realistic figures simulating a real attack while his real force hangs in wait, and then attacks when the enemy is confident, and also exposed.

Decoy offenses come in the form of three separate ruses, each of which function identically, save for the type of unit it produces:

  • Decoy Air-Raid deploys a squadron of whatever aerial vehicles you currently have available.
  • Decoy Infantry sends in battalions of foot-soldiers; again, whichever have been made available.
  • Decoy Armor sends divisions of cardboard tanks to dupe your enemy. As with the other two, the Ruse makes use only of the tanks you currently have access to.

Decoy units can be commanded around the battlefield just as any other unit, they will be destroyed in one hit and the enemy will be notified that it was a dummy unit that has been destroyed, thus moving your decoy army around avoiding any enemy fire can sustain the illusion for a much greater period of time.
