Ghosts are covert infantry units which can be produced from the Barracks as long as the Terran player controls a Ghost Academy. They can Cloak to become invisible and immobile to use their rifle to attack ground with an above average range (8). They are able to mark a target location for a Tactical Nuke strike, which will be then launched from any Ghost Academy with an available Nuke. They can also deploy Sensor Drones, cloaked structures which increase the speed of neighbouring biological units. Altough Sensor Drones do not have vision, they can reveal the presence of enemy units nearby by displaying a " ! " where a unit is present. (Like a SC2 sensor tower)
Note that the Tactical Nuke Strike cast range is greater than the Ghost's sight range, even if the Ghost is moving.
