I propose to use this widget:

because commander can blow your or ally units too. So info about blow radius is allways useful

I am not a fan of excessive ui clutter, but maybe you would consider the following?

How about only showing the blast radius for your own commander in flashing yellow and red if you have issued it a self destruct order (you still have 5 seconds to cancel anyway), and only showing the enemy commander's blast radius if the enemy is in LLT range (or closer).

Maybe even if your comm and any enemy comm is within blast radius, draw all the circles for all commanders inside that multi-blast area.

Also, should handle the modoptions of air commander blast as well (difficulty +3!)

I can do all that

I tihnk there's no need to display anything when reduced air comblast modoption is on, because those explosions don't kill anything (well, anything with >400 health). When the air comblat does full damage it can work as normal, but of course slightly reduce radius due to sphere.

(didn't implement the flashing, also didn't implement a check to show only if enemy coms are close, but might do both in future)
