High Command

High command enables commanding squads in the same way that squad command works for subordinates. If you are allowed to take the role of a high commander, switch to High command using [Left Ctrl+Space].
Units are represented by NATO markers that vary according to group type and size.
You can assign command either in 3D view or on a map. The map offers more possibilities.
