On a stealth mission it is somewhat of a nuisance to always be checking in on your fire team to make sure they are not being engaged, and if they are, telling them to open fire. I think it would be a lot easier if there was a return fire command so you could get your AI in position and not worry about them not defending themselves if they do come under fire.

It is there already:
"GREEN" (Hold fire - defend only)
When a player orders his units to "Hold fire", the units are set to combat mode Green.
They will defend themselves and automatically exit hold fire mode. But it could be made more obvious and clear. I too worried about my AIs and managed them manually, until I've accidentally found that they can open fire when in trouble.
