    - Support ships may not be present in the game, since they "have little purpose in a game centered on combat".
    What does that mean? I think that supports ships always have purpose in a game like this. If i cannot rearm,refuel or restock my fleet, how is supposed to achieve my goals? unless your are planning short campaigns in the game. And from the enemy side, there would be a great target to hit. Ask England about that, when we hit the Atlantic Conveyor on Malvinas war, with the Chinooks and a lot of stuff for the infantry people.

    Regards.

    As in, the campaign is broken up into manageable 'scenarios', as opposed to multi-week missions I suppose resupply is imagined to happen between each scenario.

    Although that would be an awesome style of campaign to mod into the game after launch

    *Britain not England as you fought Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland too.

    *Falklands is the name in English not Malvinas. (joking of course, it tends to depend on what side of the argument you sit)

    At the moment the answer is yes. For a more detailed explanation of why this is the case see the 11th post in that thread.

    - Time compression available in singleplayer to speed up the game, although active pausing will not be possible.
    What does this "active pausing" mean? Do you mean in multiplayer, or no pausing in the single player game? Or do you mean making commands while paused?

    No pausing at all, though 1:1 time is slow enough that you don't really need it.

    No pausing at all? Is this Atari 2600?

    You pause the game by pressing Esc (bringing up the menu).

    You cannot issue orders in paused mode, though. The "R" in RTS

    Okay, then. I was worried because 1:1 time doesn't stop phonecalls from happening while in combat, for example.
