The optical camo soldier serves as the elite infantry for the Consortium. They come with stealth capabilities, allowing them to launch devastating attacks against foes without stealth detection, though their stealth capability is temporarily disabled when attacking. However, they do plenty of damage with their guns and can hold their own against Delta Force, even though they can detect them. Their stealth capabilities and powerful weapons are balanced by their high cost to train them. They also make for good escorts for Akula tanks, mainly to protect them from enemy infantry and helicopters.
