Jaeger Light Infantry Recon Squad is the elite infltration troops of the Oberkommando West's Scavenge Doctrine in Company of Heroes 2. They appear by infiltrates an empty neutral building through the Jaeger Light Infantry call in ability. If the target is not an empty building, they will spawn near the base similar to other call-in. Jaeger Light Infantry excels in ambushing, flanking and harassing the enemy's supply line.
Jaeger Light Infantry Recon Squad has sight range of 50 (compare to most other infantry 35). Like Obersoldaten, Jaeger Light Infantry Recon Squads can booby trap territory points.
Jaeger Light Infantry Recon Squad squad is armed with 3x Kar98k bolt-action rifles and a scoped G43 semi-automatic rifle. The scoped G43 has the ability to kill infantry with less than 75% health. With these rifles the squad is effective against other infantry at long range.

Jaeger Light Infantry excels in ambushing, flanking and harassing the enemy's supply line.
Spawning from a neutral building is extremely useful in decap-ing the enemy's cut-off point and flanking weapon team.
Ambushing needs a bit of preparation. First setup booby trap on an important point, then position the squad cloaked nearby. When an enemy squad tries to decap it, the trap should cause heavy damage. Any survivor can be easily dealt with the G43 snipe.
