Anyway, I can't help but notice that Trotsky is still "just" another general (albeit with excellent stats and abilities), and that he demands the first promotion to army command. I remember discussing this in another thread, but I don't think a solution was ever settled on.
The problem is, of course, that it's grossly ahistorical. Trotsky is supposed to zip from front to front, pitching in where his help is most needed, not taking personal command of any single front.
As I see it, there are two solutions:
1) Keep Trotsky as a general, but make him a 1-star, non-promotable, very low seniority general, so that it's not necessary (or possible) to give him command of an army.
2) Turn Trotsky into a support unit, keeping the name, graphics and abilities of the current unit. This means that Trotskys strategic rating, offense and defense stats have to go, although I believe he could still influence those stats of other units present (much like signal troops). I personally prefer this solution, since it seems to be most in line with history, that is Trotsky appears somewhere briefly, giving a major boost to all kinds of stats, boosting morale, and helping cohesion recovery, then he goes somewhere else where he's more needed.
Anyway, what does everybody think? Any other suggestions?
