I'm thinking about starting over now though. I didn't start building satellites soon enough, and now I've got countries dropping like flies. I didn't realize I could build satellites and have them ready before having the uplink facilities to launch them.
I can also recommend focusing on pistols for snipers. I completely missed that on my playthrough - and it was obvious towards the end that they'd have made a huge difference because of the Overwatch limitation on snipers.

BTW, I made the same mistake with satellites in my game - but I managed to pull through until the very end - where I lost 2-3 countries.
