How about this:
The higher command levels are abstracted. Give each side a few tokens to represent the overall effectiveness of command. They can cash in one token to get an activation or salvage a failed roll. One-use.
You could keep it simple: (NATO pro’s get 4 per battalion, Warpac first line get 3, NATO conscript 2, Warpac minors 1, USMC 0 🙂 ) or tie it to certain conditions.
Since you solo game, I’d be inclined to give Warpac forces a bonus when following the plan and a penalty when deviating from it f.x.
