>>>Mother Hen is nice but this game needs to keep the isolated feeling it currently has. Karl gets briefed and executes the mission. There is no option to contact mother hen on secure frequencies so comms are limited to outgoing emergency captured enemy radios.<<<
That's fine, and a good example of the more portable comm equipment available at the time, admittedly bulky, but that could be carried in a back pack. Mother Hen couldn't be too far away even for the tabletop unit, and if enough maps are near water, line of sight wouldn't be a major issue if she were on a support ship nearby. I agree about the isolated feeling. That's part of the suspense factor and adds to the atmosphere. I'm not talking about constant communication, just a bit more often that only at mission start.
