To illustrate the plans being generated, here is Gantt chart generated for Russian attack forces in the tutorial video mission (click image for full size):
In the mission, Andrei and Boris are 18 men dismount corresponding to the Dmitri BTR-80 IFV platoon and Evgeni BMP2-D platoon respectively. Fedor is a 3-tank T90 platoon, and Grisha provides air-defence with a section of BRDM2 9P31 SAM vehicles. Igor is a howitzer battery and Leonid a section of Mi-24 Hind rotary wing gunships. Note how A and B mount the vehicles of D and E in order to move to the assembly area. G stays near the assembly area (providing air defence) during the attack, and joins the attackers after the attack.
Pre-planned fire support is synchronized with the start of the attack with artillery first and gun ships once the artillery mission is completed.

|The limit on planner steps has been increased (to 800 from 200), so more complicated missions can be planned to completion.|

After seeing a few testers getting stuck defining their missions, I've added better warnings and guidance in the site logo (example screen shot on the right).
