Description:
A valuable unit which can heal your units

Warning: This unit seems to be bugged. The Heal-Function does not work.


This is a unit who can heal your men when they get shot. These guys are extremely important as every man is needed alive to survive as long as possible. Sadly, they are very rare. It is best to keep them in the bunker with protection so they won't get shot and moving injured men to the medic when a VC wave has only few men alive so they won't end up slaughtered in the open. It's also good idea to move soldier a from the bunker to replace the injured soldier (if your men are positioned on the trenches).

They are similar to MnB2 medics, but they are armed.


Real Life

Combat medics (also known simply as medics) are trained military personnel who are responsible for providing first aid and frontline trauma care on the battlefield. They are also responsible for providing continuing medical care in the absence of a readily available physician, including care for disease and battle injury. Combat medics are normally co-located with the combat troops they serve in order to easily move with the troops and monitor ongoing health. In 1864, sixteen European states (referring to themselves as "High Contracting Parties"), adopted the First Geneva Convention to save lives, to alleviate the suffering of wounded and sick military personnel, and to protect trained medical personal as civilians, in the act of rendering aid.

Traditionally, medical personnel did not carry weapons and wore a distinguishing red cross, to denote their protection as noncombatants under the Geneva Convention. This practice continued into World War II. However, the enemies faced by professional armies in more recent conflicts are often insurgents who either do not recognize the Geneva Convention, or do not care, and readily engage all personnel, irrespective of noncombatant status. For this reason, some modern combat medics are armed combatants and do not wear distinguishing markings. Combat Medics in the United States Army and United States Navy Hospital Corpsman are virtually indistinguishable from regular combat troops, except for the extra medical equipment they carry.
