    I would love to have this feature implemented on units. Basically you tell a tank to attack a spot on the ground and it shoots at it. Right now you can do this with pds. Ie you see a Group of dox coming from the opposite side your turret is facing, you can attack the ground in their direction to turn it.

    For units this will help with bombing moving units and killing trees. It's really difficult to bomb the front dox of the group from strategic view as they have tiny select size.

    I understand this will interfere with attack move but we could have both?

    A "Force Fire" command sounds good to me.

    No you can't do that for units, but defensive structure are able to do that. If it's a unit it will just attack move.

    I'd rather just have a facing command.

    I'd like a force attack command myself, it definitely future proof the game for updates & mods (especially those who decide to add stealth <modded in>)

    Distinguish between attack ground and attack-move: yes, please!
