I just noticed that tactics is now a synonym of warfare instead of being a separate tag.
As someone who spent 3 years involved in planning the tactics of warfare, 3+ years involved in determining the actual tactics of police operations, and more than 10 years involve in developing tactics for business operations - I cannot see the reasoning in including tactics and warfare as absolute synonyms.
Before even moving into the ability to ask about tactics in areas outside of warfare I must point out that warfare strategy does not equal tactics. I have a full argument in a separate post but the main gist is:
There is a difference between operational planning, tactical planning, mission or course of action (COA) planning, and actual orders.
This means that for questions involving warfare the more appropriate response would not be making this a synonym but adding the actual levels of planning (as tags) that organizations use. Or leave strategy & tactics separated (strategy is open-ended most of the time but that is a different conversation).
To add my argument, beyond warfare strategy, the tactics I had as a military police officer vs. as military member (Marine) in warfare is just a gross miss-interpretation of tactics in a general sense - and yes, I still have orders from both instances and the variance is immense.
I can expand on length & with multiple examples if needed but a clear example could be "no warning shots" vs. "disabling shots are the first priority" and "close with and destroy with fire & close combat" vs. "disable & apprehend all suspects involved with incident".
I would link to the discussion on this within meta but I cannot find a single one.
I may come off a bit defensive about this but that comes from years and years of experience and the fact that my police actions using police tactics do not equate to my actions as a military member in combat
