I loaded ORBAT creator to get the faction names.
I'll use Blue Mil Placement(MIL.OBJ)
I set the following:
Force Faction: BLU_F
and used CUP_B_GB to 'override the Infantry etc etc
Same process for the RED (OPF_F), but used
Force Faction : OPF_F
then used a combination of the units listed above
Go into game and get
TACOM: no Groups availible
Use ZUES and there are no spawned BLUE or RED units down the left side
Remove the 'other units' , just have the force faction correctly filled out and all is fine
What have I missed, yet again!!
