|Army: Yellow Comet|
|Kanbei’s daughter. An intel gathering genius.|
|Units have great range of vision. Keeps unit HP hidden from enemies. Is plagued by constant bad luck.|
Extends vision range of all units. Shows enemy units hidden in woods, reefs and other areas.
“Brains are the key to victory, not brawns.“
Sonja, as the Fog of War specialist of the game, gets +1 vision for all her units. Plus, her unit’s HP is hidden from the enemy! However, she suffers from constant bad luck, with her luck rolls changed from the normal +0 to +10% to a much worse -15% to +10%.

| CO Power – Enhanced Vision
Enhance Vision increases Sonja’s vision by two spaces, and it allows her to see woods and reefs with no need of being next to them. All her units get the standard 10% boost in attack and defense.

Sonja is underpowered in comparison to the rest of the cast, and that has a very easy explanation. Her weakness (a quite crippling one, at that) is always present, while her vision strength is only available in Fog of War. For this reason, playing Sonja outside of Fog of War is a very hard thing to do…
But luckily, she can still perform decently when FoW is present, and she has the useful ability of hiding her HP, which can make for a few interesting mind games. Always keep in mind her damage percentages are not reliable.
Sonja’s Fog of War strategy should be a well-thought plan consisting of Recons, Indirects, and highly mobile directs. Set up all your units; take advantage of woods to hide your recons as vision points, and to hide your indirects in strategic points. Lure in the enemy with a false sense of security, with your directs, and counter them when they attack. Remember, they have no idea of what your HP is; low HP units can be very useful. A 1 HP Medium Tank can cause fear into your opponent’s army. What your opponent will see is what your opponent will think; your strength is to make him see the wrong thing ;).
|CO Power Strategy
Enhanced Vision should be the epitome of your strategy. After a big set-up, you conclude with activating Enhanced Vision and attacking like a mofo. It can also be very useful to foresee and counter your opponent. Remember, it won’t be useful at all if don’t have high-vision units to take advantage of it! It’s sadly useless outside of FoW though.
|Maps to play on
Sonja should play mainly on land maps, with tons of forests and chokepoints. Keep away from open maps, Sonja’s not fit for head-on battling.
