Forget your Steel Panther tactics; they won't work here. The best
way to play Combat Mission is as if you are fighting for real. If
you employ tried and tested small unit tactics, you'll do well.
Leaders are crucial. Keep your platoons in command whenever possible.
Not only do the troops respond more quickly to orders, but they also
rally more easily.
Combined arms are important for victory. A tank without infantry
support is a sitting duck when traversing city streets and ground
adjacent to woods. By the same token, both tanks and infantry need
artillery to loosen up tough enemy defensive positions.
