This was a nice  (I think) feature in Aftermath where you could delegate a mission to the state regular army instead of sending your own troops. Of course there was only a small chance to successfully complete the battle that way and there was no alien material gathered that way.

We could have for instance an option for that and a short sentence after 2-3 hours time telling us if soliders have succeeded or not. This would be matter of probability; ex: at the beginning of the game 40% success; then at mid-game 30 %, then 10%

Also that may depend on the game difficulty.

Well, you can also consider that IF there's a UFO activity somewhere, that means the local  army has failed already... :?

"Seargent, I've got a mission for you"

"Okay sir, what is it?"

"I want you to go stop creatures with armor we don't understand, using weapons that can burn holes in our tanks, that fly around in ships that don't have wings we recognize, using training and equipment that are outdated."

"I see... sir..."

"Please update your will and see the chaplain on the way out.  Dismissed."

Maybe a nice feature on some maps would be a few burnt out tanks, dead soldiers, crashed helicopters and few panicked soldiers who have survived a failed attempt to intercept some aliens...  Artists!  Where are you?

Alex, now that sounds interesting... maybe I will try this when I'm done with my current map...
I think theres a list with suggestions for maps in the wiki, how about you put it in there for now?
