My take on Medics.

Most large weapons like lasers and such are not actually slicing through
the bodies of soldiers. Yes, a few do get sliced in half, but most of
the men are taken out by the shrapnel. The Medic patches up the men who
have been hit by the shrapnel. He gives them the drugs they need to
fight on for the rest of the battle. He does not bring the dead back to

Although he is powerfull in the right situation, most other Specials are
a better buy, like Titans! I think the medic is fine.
