Medical Personal
« on: September 29, 2021, 01:14:35 pm »
I always thought this game needed medics.
A couple medical personal to go on missions.

Their TV rate- 100.
Their armor and health- very high.
Their only job- to heal wounded soldiers.
Not sure if possible- Have them undetected by aliens- so they are not fired at.

I would even have them in white hospital clothes.
Maybe carrying only a small pistol for defense.

In World War 1 and 2, military forces frequently would not fire upon medical personnel as just a rule of honor. But the aliens have no such honor. If you want medics, they are going to need to be the toughest of the tough. I'd make them fully combat ready, and just have them focus on mobility and capacity to carry supplies around. They should perhaps be a generalized support/combat unit capable of several roles, medic being one of them.

Just tossing ideas.

During the WWI I broadly agree.
But for WWII I am sorry to contradict you !
So much so that medical personnel were not required to wear any distinctive signs!
But I agree about the aliens!  ;)
That's why I don't hesitate to shoot aliens dressed in white! ;D
