Simply having these five commands would (IMO) greatly increase the effectiveness of the SL. These commands sum up all the actions a SL would need his squad to perform, meanwhile keeping the commo-rose uncluttered and easy to use.
These commands would preferably be accompanied by 3d objective markers viewable by the squad only (with the exception of mortar strikes, obviously).
As far as whether I would rather have a map or a commo-rose... I honestly would want both. This isn't a cop out; there are cases in which a map is more useful than a commo-rose, and vice versa. For example, if the area I want to shell is out of my line of sight or hidden by a building, then a map proves invaluable. Likewise, if I want my squad to attack a distant objective, a map is once more the medium of choice. However, If I'm in a heated firefight and must quickly point out where my troops should direct their fire, a commo-rose is a necessity.
If I had
to take one, I would have the commo-rose. If at all possible though, I would take both.
Just my $0.02; thanks for reading
