Another thing, pretty minor, and more a selfish desire than anything: No planes.
Seems a shame you can utilise any sort of fixed-wing air cover or call in air strikes. Being able to call in close air support from some A-10s or Sukhois in a tight spot would have been fun!
But like I say, that's more a personal desire than anything.
Overall, the game is thoroughly enjoyable, and though there isn't any attempt to offer historical element to the battles to engage you (past the justifications for the conflicts) what they do give you is an engaging and enjoyable slice of very strategically minded real-time strategy. Let's just hope it's the start of a series!
