Yep, this would be sort of like CTP2 where you have listeningtowers and 
sonarbouys etc, to increase visibilty...
These would make a great improvement to freeciv, but needs the concept of 
land improvement first..

but AWACS is something that sounds very good... (what about boats with 
sonars, to locate submarines etc,
on top of the aegis cruiser (it's the aegis that can see subs right?)
