The Spy Plane is called in as a special power from the Internet Center. Since it requires enhanced intelligence gathering equipment from the Internet Center, the Spy Plane special power can't be performed without upgrading the Internet Center with the Satellite Hack I upgrade first.
When called in, it will appear on the edge of the map nearest the Internet Center and continue on to the targeted area. After it reaches a certain distance from the targeted area, it will already start to reveal the terrain in a straight line. The revealed area is much bigger than the GLA's Radar Van Scan and a little wider yet narrower than the USA's Spy Satellite ability.
When combined with Satellite Hack upgrades, the Chinese army now gathers field intelligences much better than in the original game. The downside is, like any other cargo plane or bomber, the Spy Plane can be shot down and will not reveal the target area if it goes down before reaching the designated area. Good thing Spy Planes are a lot tougher than most aircraft.
