As I understand, correct me if I'm wrong, each race has "detector" units which can see all cloaked units.

Is there a list of these buildings or units for each race?

Duplicate with this question? I don't think there's any differences from detectors versus just being able to reveal cloaked units? Admittedly, the answer here is much more in-depth, so that gives more weight towards a close in this direction, though. – Grace Note Jan 26 '11 at 21:04
@Grace it's a duplicate, and this question (and its answer) are of higher quality. – Oak Jan 26 '11 at 21:21
@Oak That's why I figure I should close in this direction. – Grace Note Jan 26 '11 at 21:22
