Yup just the thing is, it'll be a lot harder to fool a well equipped opponent with decoys than in the old days. Multi-spectral or even IR sensors will easily tell the difference between decoy and the real thing.

I think I'll have to agree here. There is so much information gathered before ordinance and personnel are committed now that you almost know the targets by their given name. Here are a few useful items for Recon.

And tactically this little reorganization on your part could give the enemy the temporary advantage it needs.
Well it depends on the situation I think, usually intelligence is able to gather some information about enemy placement, with all the high tech equipment. Surley its not only the weapons that use the kind of technology for spotting and determening the threat of the area. When you have recived the intelligence on possible targets and roll in, with artillary etc
