A friend told me about this ability of commandos to 'jam' SAMs and mobile AA units just by being next to them.
He confirmed this ability by mentioning that the commandos emanate some sort of an aura when the supposed jamming is going on.

I have seen this aura before but I haven't paid much attention to it. Also, I ahevn't been able to test the veracity of his observation so I'd like to ask if anyone here has any idea that commandos can jam both mobile AAs and SAMs

Allow me one qestion here: Special forces are invisible while standing. If they jam, are they still invisible?
I.E.: Do they jam only 'fire' ability or they jam 'spot hiden units' ability too?

Commandos are NOT invisible when jamming

I thought they were, of course, you'd think that a great big blue cloud would kinda give you away.

And yes, they jam mobile AAs too.

Thanx for the info.

Played a game today, and a seemingly strange thing happened:

It was a East/West map, and we went all the way into info age. My opponent sent a small group of choppers and started to take out my refineries. I had built 2 SAMs nearby, but I saw that the choppers weren't taking any damage and the SAMs didn't seem to be firing. I was looking out for commandos but yet, didn't see any. Didn't observe any aura or blue cloud either.

So, is it possible that commandos can actually jam the "spot hidden units" ability as well?

2 possibilities. You either failed to spot the commando or there was a commando there under the protection of a general with ambush.
I'm not sure the latter works because I've never tried to use it in this way. But it seems a logical explanation.

Commandos/Spec. Forces only jam the AA ability of Static and Mobile AA Guns. They can be seen by the Static AA Guns always (since they are always within sight range of the AA Guns), but, if they are in the middle of a battle away from the Static AA Guns, they can jam Mobile AA Guns w/o being seen (as long as they stand still), unless you have some other method of detecting invisible units.
