I'll just place three further suggestions to interface simple improvement.
1. A formation window mimicking the group composition window. To be able to view all counters on the formation is more intuitive than the present formation report (which could be kept also). It is easier to distinguish the counter type and we have attack/defense strength separated.
2.. The ability to scroll the map with the keyboard arrows while a window is open. This would allow to check location of units while keeping a report open, to check for places while reading the briefing, etc.
3. The ability to display hex coordinates (a on/off switch) or, at least, to allow the status bar to display location coordinates while keeping a window open, which would combine with the ability to scroll the map to make the coordinate info in some reports useful. As it is, you have to close the window before scrolling the map while hovering the mouse over the hexes or press B in order to find a location.
I like all three of those suggestions. +1. Also, it would be really cool if you could click on an item in the inventory report and get a list of the formations that have that equipment in their unit. Saves having to open every unit that might have it and take a look. Hide and seek.
