So I have been trying to get my head around the Russians, after a couple of false starts where I tried to use them like the US and get my long range sniping on I switched to trying to do more set piece attacks with some serious artillery support.
Apart from my generalship screw ups the main issue I am having is spotting the Americans, it feels like unless they actually stand in the open on a clear day or I am literally on top of them I can't spot them.
In one of my latest outings I am defending against a US attack so I put out a trip line of scouts and snipers, the best I have got before most of them have been killed is a ghost contact. One unit of snipers was killed by a tank they never even saw...they where snuck up on by a tank while hiding in woods!
Basically help! IS there some way I can actually get eyes on the US without resorting to dropping artillery on every location they could be hiding?
