That would leave very little room for translations on those buttons.
There are languages much more verbose than English, support for those is more important than creating interface space.

"Build a new base" - can be replaced with a construction icon.
New bases in the game are not built too often.
Other functions are similar.
In the tactical interface, none of the buttons have an inscription. But even without translation, everything is clear.

There is a ton of free space for new features without such dramatic changes.

If you take the Warhammer 40,000 universe (where each "military camp" is treated as a separate military unit), then in fact each "X-COM base" lacks the functions of managing it as a military camp. (At least at the level of the military Company)
This means that players will definitely ask for platoon, company and regimental functions for managing personnel and the facility itself..

But this is X-COM, not Warhammer. Base interface spacing is fine as is. Underlaying idea is to stay vanilla-compliant.

If we consider X-COM as a simulator of a military organization, then the simulation of all the main functions and structures of a military organization is indispensable in the future.

If someone decides to create in the game (modification) such a strategic level that is present in the game "Civilization" or "Total War", then the number of bases in the game will be equal (needed) to the number of regions on the globe. That is more than eight.
(To establish control over the region - you need to capture the base in it)

It's useless. Negotiations have been underway for several years now, but the number of bases has not increased because of this. In addition, modding capabilities allow you to have dozens of ships and combat squads on one base, so there is no formal need to increase the number of bases.

What exactly has been changed?

Layered armors optimization and validation was reverted back.

I guess:
As soon as there are people who are able to implement the strategic concept of Total War (economic control over the territory through military control over the "city" (Base) located on this territory), then there will be people who are able to increase the number of bases to the number of regions.
In the game "Total War" (Civilization), the player can also have a dozen armies in each city. But economic control over the new territory is achieved only through the military capture of enemy cities.

When press the button New Battle -

likely just some side effect of modding... delete `battle.cfg` file and try again pls

...or maybe even upload that battle.cfg file here so that I can check what failed and try to handle it a bit more gracefully next time

Excuse me, as for the layered armors, please might someone explain what this feature readded in openxcom extended 7.5.2 does/allows to do?
