Well, Soviet coordination wasn't their selling point, and often scenarios have a limited time frame so they don't really have time to operate smoothly under a new formation. There should be a malus when two units from different formations operate togather, as it's historically accurate. This malus, however, should be limited to big units (from battalion upwards at the very least).
I thought the malus was handled by setting units / formations to various support levels. E.g., "Internal Support" ... as is the case w/ many Soviet formations in (e.g.) D21 or Russo-German War ... so that formations / units set to "internal support" fight not so well with other units not in their formation / support group?
I forget what the levels are ... "Free" support (fights well with all), "Army" support, "Formation" support, "internal" support levels. I forget what they all are. I just try to keep the colors together, and watch for "internal" support units, and keep them together. Otherwise, they don't do as well?
Is also the case in scene France 40 ... most formations are IIRC "internal" support level, at least for Allies ... I found at least one French formation at "Army" support level. But most are internal support. So you have to be careful to keep those together and not hot dog them around.
Isn't that the malus?
