But if we were to only base this on precognition, that would make those of Palpatine or Millenial higher then Thrawn in tactics. I am talking about full on tactics, not abilities to boost your awareness. Now, pretend that Revan could not have force precognition, would be more skilled then Thrawn in tactics.
All well and good but what else? What feats does he have apart from the usual? I mean does he scale from anyone who is also a tactician? What do they have going for them? I can only really recall like...3? That he can perhaps scale from.

Thrawn is likely the better tactician/strategist on average. The guy made even some of the best minds in the Empire(inc. Vader) look like droopy-eyed armless children.
Now if precog is allowed, then it would help level the field a bit, but much like Vader, it still wouldn't be quite enough for Revan to come out on top as a tactician. Just MO.
"The Grand Admiral was smart and subtle, but never used his brilliance to show up or humiliate anyone.
He demanded results, but never perfection, and had amazing stores of patience for those who were truly working to their fullest ability.
It was a pity Thrawn's style of leadership hadn't spread through the rest of the navy.
If that happened, he suspected, the Empire would stand forever."

Weren't the Mandos beating the ****ing shit out of the Republic before Revan stepped in?
How is that not a valid enough feat? Then again he was humiliating the Republic AND the Jedi, if he hadn't been turned, he might've started a reign that lasted even longer then Palpatine's.
The only time Revan has seemed to have "failed" is when he's not in command of large forces, or he gets betrayed. I guess you could say he failed at The Foundry, but thats one small failure in a factory, as opposed to multiple campaigns he was always winning.
Even as a deranged, insane zombie, Revan was doing incredibly well against the combined forces of the Jedi and the Sith.
Seriously, every time Revan steps onto a battlefield, or plans out attacks with large forces, he absolutely wrecks.
He almost killed The Emperor on his own ****ing planet with only the aid of 2 other people on a Dark Side nexus (which only REALLY aided the most inferior of the bunch) while probably still drugged like crazy. He could have thought up a better plan, but he did pretty well as he was.
Revan wins, imo. He's a brilliant strategist.

Yeah, because Revan convinced them to join the war. They weren't fighting until he stepped in. It is not that they were fighting and losing, is that they weren't fighting until Revan changed the council's mind.
