AFFILIATION: United Earth Directorate
The Medics of the United Earth Directorate follow a time-honored tradition of selflessly

The sole defensive armament of the Medic is the A-13 Flash Grenade Launcher. Originally
designed as a way to provide illumination to the battlefield, both the delivery system and
the projectile have been modified to discharge a maximum burst in the visible white light
as well as ultra-violet spectrum. This has the side effect of severely damaging the retinas
or photo-optic receptors of any targeted unit.
