Can be done by giving ground units ECM, though the issue is that ECM would need to be split into categories if Eugen doesn't want ECM to also affect "dumb" weapons like RPGs and tank cannons. Misdirecting GBUs is still not a sure thing, though the 80s saw Shtora in use for TOW (and similar) systems, again not requiring a massive timeline jump. The vast
majority of AGMs do not use radar for guidance, and no ground vehicle operates radar jamming, so that's a similarly moot point. And since most ground-targeting cruise missile mainly fly by inertial guidance, radar jamming would do jack shit to them as well.
Basically, most of the EW stuff could be done in the 80s already without diving into the much harder to balance stuff that comes in the late 90s. There's also a fair bit more actual information on those older systems than on the new stuff. Less speculation.

Arena would be death to nearby infantry. And EMP to disrupt intel gathering? Seriously? Those systems intercepted and shot down incoming rounds, they didn't jam them.
My initial opinion that you don't have a fairly good grasp of electronic warfare stands.

True, no AEGIS... but so what? It's a naval system. It's also a C3 system to improve battlefield awareness and provide guidance for targets faster and more accurately... almost like what can already be done in Wargame as soon as an enemy unit is spotted...
