Very first impressions, and only based on 2 hours of use so far.
1. Could stand a few basic printed tutorials that walk you through things step by step. Videos are fine, but sometimes being able to refer to something that is right in front of you to work from as you go along is even better.
2. Needs a better way of depicting terrain height and contour. Even using the "paper" map, or the ISO views to get an idea of the different elevations, it is still difficult. I'd rather have the paper map look like a standard 1:50000 tactical map from the eras depicted. Maybe in the standard view, terrain height could be shown by graduated color variation with the highest being the lightest, and then getting darker as elevation decreases? ISO mode I take it is supposed to be a sort of 3D look, but for me it doesn't do much at all. Just my opinion though.
3. Overall graphics are very good when it comes to vehicles and aircraft. Anything that can depict for instance, American vehicles in Olive Drab, MASSTER, and MERDC camouflage by time period gets my vote!
4. A short set of instructions on how to create a new, or modify the existing database would be very helpful.
There is a lot of great potential here. As I get more experience I'm sure things will get more and more intuitive, but I still think written examples and tutorials with illustrations should have been included with the initial release.
