I've been playing around with radar's - detection ranges, "stealth" AC, SAM's and other things, and one of the things I have noticed is that when you have a unit selected, the map display gives the player information such as

Side

Course

Speed

all can be important information to have, but when trying to calculate things like detection ranges, and trying to plan attacks on units while "hiding" from radars and such, wouldn't having a unit's altitude (even if on the ground) displayed be something that would be helpful?

For example if I'm planning an ARM mission, knowing that the radar I wish to target is on a hill at 400 feet as opposed to being at "sea level" might allow me to plan out my attack mission better by making use of the ability to hide behind terrain and of course using the earth's curvature, to avoid detection as long as possible.

Could the target's elevation be listed as well as "side, course, and speed" ?

You can but ask for new features etc.... https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4709794
In the right forum more people and the devs may pick up on it sooner ànd it won't get missed as a request?
Cheers

Altitude\elevation used to be on unit panel for facilities, was very useful for just this sort of thing, it got removed at some point, probably cause someone thought or complained that "facilities" don't need altitude, like you, I beg to differ.

I didn't realize it was there previously, but I guess that shows how much attention I was paying.

NO WONDER I've always gotten my ass kicked. It's beginning to make sense.
