Currently, player control only one faction because that is how things worked during the Cold War*. However, since 1991 the level in the military hierarchy at which regular multinational interaction takes place has lowered. For example, the British Army of the Rhine would typically have co-ordinated with its allies at Corps or Division level. Nowadays, multinationality occurs within brigades or even battalions.
As we do plan to expand towards modern era, we realised that we will need to implement a new system allowing for such co-ordination, also because some factions (particularly smaller NATO members) lack some basic combat systems to wage modern combat independently due to post-Cold War military reductions. However, we are not yet sure how we will implement that; we might implement a new mode allowing to “borrow” allied formations.
*a notable exception was Korean War with Commonwealth Division (and integration of some smaller contingents within UN Command) but even in that case we talk about units with common language, doctrine, equipment etc.
