Reconnaissance Patrols are groups of soldiers fighting for Hyrule. They normally do not fight, and are in charge of collecting intelligence of the enemy. Patrol 1 is lead by Sheik.
This is the Reconnaissance Patrol lead by Sheik. They do not fight, but if they have to, they are well armed. They use tiny, radio/speaker like devices to communicate with each other. These cannot by jammed by Ganondorf, but are in such sort supply, only Reconnaissance Patrols can use them so that they can stay hidden.
