I wasn't criticizing, I just meant that it's been in every RTS I can remember, this "Click twice on a unit, get them all free".

Fernspäher, Paratrooper and maybe some other infantry with accuracy 10 have in fact a better accuracy than 10.

(14 for Fernspäher and 12 for para if I remember well)

Just tested this. I do not get corrected shots without recon. Ever.

It's a very peculiar thing, I think it has to do with being able to still get a corrected shot after having seen something but the unit with LOS is destroyed, but often cases it ends up happening in situations where no recon has been able to see it.

Of course, every time I bring it up or look for it, it never seems to happen. When I'm just dragging the mouse over, finding the best shot, or zooming into see it, it will just happen.

Did you know that USSR had not one but two Naval Infantry Brigades stationed at Kola and a bunch of MRDs within the coastal troops?

...maybe i do not understand the meaning of resilient or small arms, but Fusiliers and Paras can shoot down Apaches relatively fast :)

are you sure about fusiliers?

to me it feels a bit like this:
HE1 infantry is pretty much SOL against these helos
HE2+ infantry will give them a nice beating

I think what he means with resilient is that they are able to deal damage but take longer for it.

So a Mi-17 is more robust than a Mi-8 fot instance even tough they got the same amout of lifepoints.
