If it's done this way then it can mean that you cannot attack enemy infantry units until they're about 1km away from one of your units, maybe even closer. That's quite a change...
Another issue is the AI artillery. If I leave it as it is then the AI won't call artillery to the unknown targets that are detected via ground spotting, so it will be even more passive.

BTW, if a unit is identified as enemy it may be useful to retain his identification for some time (5-15 minutes?) even if the LOS if broken so we won't have to reID a tank that just disappeared for 30 seconds in a low ground.

That's true. It can cause a chain reaction so if there's a big clump of enemies all of them can be revealed. We just have to decide what's a proper radius for it.
I was going to make it permanent...

I don't understand how a chain reaction will happen. If a unit is IDed, it'll generate an event that marks everyone around him as hostile, but those guys won't be IDed so they shouldn't generate the same event.
Isn't it logical to assume that all vehicles in the formation are on the same side? This applies to the passengers too.
