Computer Games: The French mirror real life

Even in the virtual world of computer games the French are represented very close to their real world counterparts. I just installed the expansion to Empire Earth, Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest, a real time strategy game, and the French have a very interesting ability that their units can use.

Power: Camouflage
Available in Epochs: all
With the power of Camouflage, units that have remained idle
for a short time are automatically cloaked. When a unit becomes
active again, it will lose its cloak.

Not quite the same as running as fast as they can in the opposite direction, but the hiding thing must be good for a few laughs.
