In the future, could you able to make it possible for scenario designers to place enemy recon unit in friendly main deploy zone, and vice versa? (Only for scenario editing mode, not normal mode)
I know that this game have penetrate option for dismounted infantry, but sometimes penetration is not enough. I served in Army (not US army though) as a LRRP team long ago, I served in recon battalion under infantry regiment. Depending on the scale of operation, we were able to infiltrate to AO long before any operation started. Or we even choose very long circumventing route to penetrate. This make it possible for us to infiltrate deep, hide, and observe enemy assets and HQ position and track them. Sometimes we attempt to raid on enemy HQ tent, but usually we call artillery or air strike. In this game, infiltration during set up phase is limited by enemy LOS. But in reality, (case by case) recon teams are able to infiltrate behind enemy line without being detected by several methods.
So, if this game allows to place recon team into enemy territory from set up zone during scenario edit mode, that would be help to create some interesting scenarios for scenario designers. Of course, there should be a limitation that such recon teams, placed deep in enemy deploy zone, should not have direct LOS from enemy. So, they should be hidden in mountains or buildings, and their default SOP value should be set as not engage against enemy right after start.
We could introduce one or two SF teams like GRU Spetsnaz, VDV Spetsnaz, Green Berets or Detla (I think it is possible to introduce them via database modding, as infantry team with very high training, morale, move speed, sight and detection, and etc. Maybe we can add some new weapon for them). Then, scenario designers can make some interesting scenarios. We could make hunting of SF teams, or assault on ammo depot or enemy artillery using SF teams, or combined assault of mech infantry + armor supported by spec ops / recon team in AO, and etc... Some of them were in our team's exercise scenario.
ps) Could you please help me with zones.bmp question I asked above? Thank you!
