Battle System MechanicsMedic companies are support units that consist of seventy-five soldiers trained in first-aid. They are lightly armored, usually wearing the same armor as light infantry units, but unlike light infantry, medics don't carry shields and they only have swords as sidearms for when things get problematic.
Can reduce casualties
Support all adjacent units
Almost no Damage Reduction
Poor melee skill
Always nice to be bandaged while stabbing one's enemy.
Medic units are horrible at combat and should avoid getting into fights. Without armor and shields, medics have one of the lowest Damage Reduction ratings and the best place to keep them is surrounded by friendly units. That way they won't be flanked and they will be able to provide all those units with their Potions & Lotions special ability.
