Not to be confused with STEALTH (Specialization)

Stealth technology is the use of advanced materials and design to drastically reduce the radar signature of a vehicle.

Battlefield 3[]

"Engine tuning and fuselage coating materials disguise your vehicle's infrared signature, increasing enemy locking and tracking difficulty and decreasing the time you are revealed to the enemy from being spotted."

— Battlelog description

Stealth is a vehicle specialization in Battlefield 3. It is the air vehicle counterpart to Thermal Camo. When activated, the spotting radius for enemies is decreased, and any successful spots will disappear faster. Stealth also reduces the radius for weapon lock, protecting the user from heat-seeking weaponry. It also increases the lock on time by 35%, from 2 seconds to 2.7 seconds.

Battlefield 4[]

"Special plating that increases the time it takes for enemy targeting systems to lock onto you."

— In-Game description

Stealth Coating is an air vehicle specialization in Battlefield 4. It functions in a similar manner to that of the Battlefield 3 counterpart, forcing enemy combatants to take more time in acquiring a successful lock-on to the operator's vehicle. This can be useful if the player is actively performing Hit-and-Run tactics, allowing them to escape the area before a lock-on can be achieved by hostiles.

A similar specialization, Thermal Camo, is available for ground vehicles, offering the same effect.

Battlefield Hardline[]

"Special care taken with this vehicle's heat and audio signatures decreases the time your vehicle remains spotted by enemies."

— In-Game Description

Counter Surveillance is a vehicle upgrade featured in Battlefield Hardline. Functioning in a similar manner to past counterparts, it decreases the time a vehicles remains spotted by enemies.
