Another point well brought up here is the point of Medics and what they can
do. I personally am an advocate of the Medics NOT providing a 5+ "recovery
save" after the unit is dead. Instead, let them give infantry within their
range a normal save that is modified as normal. Thus they CAN save
infantry taken out by small arms and other light weapons, but hit them with
a Defense Laser or Plasma Cannon and they are just smoking holes in the
ground, Medic or not.

>I didn't see anyone stating out "every infantry stand of race XXX need

Thank the gods they do. Makes them a little tougher (as they should be)
and helps identify them as being better than other infantry.
