Stacks of NATO units in a hex is a very inviting target when spotted by recon units. That's two hard lessons. Spread out. Kill enemy recon.

Correct. Personally, I avoid stacks of more than 2 units (2 platoons, about 70 men). Also, stick to wooded terrain and built-up areas. It makes you harder to spot. When close to the enemy, deliberate movement is better too, for the same reason.

I was complacent and this is the result.

With the last patch I have a deep hatred of AI Artillery, (Either Soviet or NATO) ...I feel it ‘knows’ exactly where you hide
your unspotted your HQ’s, Arty units, and Dug in Combat units...
they get a real hammering, stacked or singular, I give them immediate move orders but to no avail, to slow,
a second stonk usually wipes them out or are so reduced to be worthless for combat.
I’ve put my Arty units on Counter Battery watch with bugger all results.

I’ve just played ‘British Steel’ scenario as Soviet three times now, and managed only a one Tactical and two contested results.
Just when you think you get the upper hand along comes Tac Air and Artillery to wipe the floor, a very brutal scenario.. Bah! :)
