Name: Specter (Japanese: 幽霊, Yūrei)

Specter is a Blue Moon CO, Kanbei's nephew, and Sonja's cousin. He attended military intelligence class with Sonja under Yellow Comet before transferring to Blue Moon to begin his army training. Learning the ways of deception in warfare means he specializes in enhancing Stealth Units in the field of battle. He keeps close ties with Sonja, often working together during different conflicts to accomplish resounding results.

Abilities:

Firepower and defense of Snipers, Stealth Fighters, and Submarines are raised to 120%. Stealth Fighters and Submarines use 2 less fuel when hidden. All other units have no special bonuses or penalties.

CO Powers:

CO Power – Hide And Seek: Firepower and defense of Snipers, Stealth Fighters, and Submarines are raised to 140%. Stealth Fighters and Submarines will have no fuel penalty the next day.

Super CO Power – Stealth Strike: Firepower and defense of Snipers, Stealth Fighters, and Submarines are raised to 160%. Stealth Fighters and Submarines will have no fuel penalty the next day. All other units have their firepower and defense raised to 110%.

Tag Breaks:

Specter has Tag Breaks with the following CO's:

  • Sonja, 130%, “Cousin Comradery” (3 star)
  • Kanbei, 120%, “Family Ties” (2 star)
  • Grit, 110%, “All Ghillied Up” (1 star)
  • Sami, 105%
  • Eagle, 105%
  • Von Bolt, 90%

Tactics:

Specter's abilities and powers mainly affect only three units: Snipers, Stealth Fighters, and Submarines. He is otherwise a very all-around CO to play with. However, the boosts he gives to Snipers mean he can somewhat control the field against enemy Infantry units in the early game. Once he acquires Airports and sea Ports and enough funding to produce Stealth Fighters and Submarines, he can excel in the late game with the right strategies. With the increased firepower and using less fuel each day, his hidden units can do lots of damage to high-cost and high-priority units. His opponents need to have a unit adjacent to his hidden units before they can attack them. By keeping his opponent's units occupied with finding his hidden units, and only a few units can actually engage them when they are hidden, he faces fewer attacks against his own units, thus taking less damage overall.

Specter can also be beefed up with the right set of CO Skills. Both Sneaky and Stealthy can stack together to reduce dive/hide fuel cost by 3. Backstab gives a 15% increase in Dive/Hide attacks. And Mistwalker hides all of your units during Super CO Power. On top of that, all of your units being hidden means they will benefit from the increased firepower to hidden units. Furthermore, during the enemy CO's turn, when they attack your units hidden under Mistwalker, your units will attack first during the counterattack, doing more damage to your enemy's units at that moment.

Trivia:

  • Specter's name is a synonym for "Ghost," which translates into Japanese as "幽霊, Yūrei."
  • Metaphorically, a ghost is mostly hidden, much like units that have stealth tactics.
  • Specter's Tag Break with Grit, "All Ghillied Up," is a reference to a mission/level of the same name in the video game "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare," where the player character, Lt. Price, and his CO, Capt. MacMillan, both wear Ghillie Suits in order to stealthly infiltrate enemy lines in order to assassinate a target with their sniper rifles.
