The 6 Steps to Victory
1. Command and Control
4. Troops in Contact
5. Fire support
6. Combat Engineering
Cycling through these steps in battle will help you keep on top of things. The fluid nature of Close Combat precludes winning with any rigid set of tactics.
Close Combat 3 was the most enjoyable and challenging real time strategy game I'd ever played at that time.
