Default Stealth awareness

I was reading in the Seeking Arrow thread that a Stealth Army was 'Discovered' and the next turn a BUNCH of Seeking Arrows came and took out a lot of Commanders.

I understand the Seeking Arrow part...

What I don't understand is HOW do you 'discover' a stealth (like Vanheim) Army?

Does High PD help or perhaps a Scout in a province...is it just luck.

OR, since Vanheim troops have a +25 stealth do I need a +25 stealth unit myself to spot them?

Or is there just no way for sure.

PD 10 or above has a chance to discover stealth units.

You have more chance of being discovered if leading a stealthed army through enemy provinces than a lone individual. Basically the bigger the stealthed army = bigger chance of discovery.

Other than that only patrolling will discover stealth units. Nothing else.

There is of course a exact (if slightly complicated) formula that gives you a very exact % chance of being discovered in the manual.

Please try reading your manual before posting. Stealth is covered in detail (and mostly accurately) there.

As usual the manual is your friend here. Page 67 in this case.

I appreciate your input on where to look and when...

I find that with all the patches, Nation nerfs and helps, that I don't trust the Manual to be the definitive answer.

If you would like to tell me thay you know for sure that the mauual written over a year ago is completely correct I will bow to your request.

I try to ask specific questions AFYER I have read the manual to see if it still remains accurate.

So agian, I thank you for your input and I am sorry I took your valuable time having to direct me back to the Manual.

The manual is correct in this case (as it very often is).

Vanheim glamour units are very hard to detect, even with patrolling. That is part of their allure. I'm horrible with math, so I usually don't do the numbers. But it comes down to a ridiculous amount of troops patrolling to actually find Vans.

The Heliophagus with +40 stealth is also ridiculously hard to detect.

Markata scout has stealth 50. Best scout in game actually. Who cares about that small monkey?

Unfortunately, in CBM Markatas got much lower stealth value.
