Tightrope shows the new control groups of COH3 here on Youtube

So now you can assign a squad to multiple groups, as in this image, where one tank belongs to 2&3 and the other to 1,2,3:

Do you have examples, where this becomes really useful in gameplay?

Yes, I can imagine now you can dodge nades and rocket artillery like a god if you have let's say a 3-squad "blob".

The whole blob is in control group 1, and squads 1 & 2 are in control groups 2 & 3, respectively. Now you press each control group + move order into different directions in quick succession and the squads scatter super fast.

I know this is possible in coh2 already with TAB key but that one is way more far away from the main hotkeys

The whole blob is in control group 1,...

jup, I can imagine this being helpful for blobs I cannot micro correctly in a give moment.
For example, have 1 for four grenadiers. Can be helpful in a 2v2 to move away from base. Then two of them have LMGs in group 2 and move on attack-move while the other two are in group 3 and need to go closer.
Things like that. Big groups to move in a direction, subgroups to micro further once you get closer to the frontline.

All inf can be in one group, all tanks in another; then groups 3 and 4 could be combined arms tank + inf

Pretty cool. I mean I don't think I'll use it that way, but still.

Main issue for me is sniper, that one always needs his own group, might be handy having him in a subset of the inf group
