Yes, not only will the mission confuse them, but they will confuse each other as well.

Not if i'm in that team. I will conquer DCS world by myself in my T-55 and my lonewolf team supporting me.

This will be cool, because the hot shot A-10C drivers will probably be circling around on the wrong side of the map trying to find out why they can't plug MGRS coords into their CDU when it is in LL mode

Lonewolf can be effective. If you don't expect singletons, they can sneak up on you. Useful tactic sometimes.

Best regards,

Not against well organized teams. Granted, you don't really see that, either.

To win a fight, a lone wolf needs only to stay on the ground.

What Combined Arms features sounds great already, but how much cooler would it even be, if you could additionally control (give orders) to AI aircraft and helicopters! For example, in their announcement ED stated that reconnaissance planes will now finally get their true meaning - but as long as you can't direct them to a specific location, I wonder how that will work actually... Maybe I just lack imagination though.

Also, it would be nice to see provisions made for adjusting artillery fire. This means the artillery commander would need to be able to designate an Observer-Target (OT) direction and issue adjustment commands (left, right, add, drop, up, and down) to the artillery fire, with "left, right" etc in perspective to that OT line. Additionally, the human artillery commander in Combined Arms should be able to designate how many guns of the battery fire, how many volleys they fire, and what munitions they fire.
Bump This would be really nice
