Being a military man in real life, here is my idea for the military:
1. Unit Organization: I like the way you can create Division and Battalions but those are large organizations. What happened to Platoons and Companies? Plus only the Army and Marines use those. Air Force uses Flights, Squadrons, Groups, and Wings. I would like to be able to organize specific Platoons (I.E. an Engineer Platoon and a Armor Platoon together in a Civil Engineer Company) without getting too many weapons.
2. Allow users one military in regards to offense and defense. Have one large military and deploy troops from it as needed, and the rest will obviously be defense. And why use two different bases?
3. Add Naval Stations. If you have a Navy, you have to have Naval Stations.
4. And here is an idea for icons... on military maps of the U.S. we use Green Tanks for Army bases, Blue Planes for Air Force Bases, Red Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (USMC Symbol) for Marine Corps Bases, and Black Ships for Naval Stations.
Just some ideas. I must say I like most of the military stuff you have on there already!

Some of these ideas are great, some are already on the wish list. The new war engine is not finished yet so we suggest you wait for the next update, which will be a major step forward and for info on the following steps.
As to smaller units: This may be introduced later. The current armies are huge and the units as we have created them are already a major step down in size. We expect armies to become smaller, with much higher quality weapons and as they become even smaller, we will be able to introduce smaller units.
Smaller units are possible even now as you decide on the size and their names. They may however be too small to have any serious effect in the war game.
