Paramedics are common to all armed forces of the thirty-first century, attached to combat squads in order to provide battlefield first aid for wounded soldiers.[1] The medics of the Magistracy Armed Forces are well known for their skills, able to preserve the lives of wounded soldiers until they can be transported to a field hospital.[2] The Magistracy is also notable for providing a higher ratio of medics per troopers (1:7) compared to other states (1:20).[3]


The two paramedics in the squad are protected by five soldiers carrying Federated Long Rifles.
