1) Of course radars were originally intended to only see aircraft, and thus everything else is stealthy. What I'm saying is to take out radars, give every unit shorter-range radar, and make only infantry stealthy.Warlord Zsinj wrote:IIRC, radar in AATA was only going to be to detect aircraft. If this is the case, then everything is technically "stealth".
The cloaking idea would only work if units would only cloak while motionless, and uncloak as soon as they moved. Anything else would defeat the purpose, and either overpower, or underpower.
I'm guessing that a player would certainly have 100 infantry; but they certainly wouldn't have 100 infantry in a single place, ambushing. If you have 100 infantry, grouped together (in clear ground for even worse realism ) in ambush, and I spot them, I'll click my artillery, and indundate the area with fire in moments. Having that many infantry in an ambush is it's own discouragement. You'd never be able to pull off the ambush effectively anyway.
The only time having masses of infantry cloaked would be helpful would be when they are back at your base, and you want to conceal them from the probing eye of a reconaissance flight (or some artillery observers!), which seems realistic enough to me.
2) Nonsense on the last paragraph. Having masses of infantry cloaked would always be a good idea; if you can hide your infantry by simply ordering them to "hold position" in an open field, it would always be to your advantage to do so unless the infantry were in a fight, or on the march, simply because invisible infantry is better than visible infantry.
