Units with Vanguard Deployment are able to deploy outside their army's normal deployment zone, during the deployment phase before a battle commences. However, they cannot deploy inside the enemy's deployment zone, and must still stay inside the white map borders the same as other units.

Vanguard Deployment can be useful for surprising enemies, or closing the distance quickly.
