DavePat, the issue you are talking about here is the limitation of the ability to project conventional combat power.

But is that not the major limitation faced by real world militaries?

We, the US, are a conventional superpower only due to our experience and capabilities to rapidly deploy our limited forces anywhere, anytime and support them. That capabability also absorbs a large part of our military resources.
All tail and little teeth?

In game terms, I won't question your expertise, but I seem to have the impression that the latest series of changes to the war engine heavily favor the attacker. With limited offensive forces, cannot a targets defenses be eliminated allowing a WMD coup d'grace?
And once the "Nooks" start falling, the target nation is pretty much screwed?

I will ask others with more recent experience to comment on that.
