                                                                             Market Analysis

Up and coming technology firm Beacon Advanced Industries with a wide base of research and products ranging from computer software, advanced avionics, telecommunications, materials research, robotics, and molecular science has raised their EPS by twenty six percent according to their recently released quarterly earnings report (ten percent higher than projected) which includes the successful launch of the NightNight Gun. Lightweight and versatile, basically a miracle born of engineering and biochemistry. These custom tranquilizer weapons are the perfect tool for stopping someone without killing them. Constructed of new proprietary compounds the weapon weighs just under one kilogram. The weapons fire nonlethal 'bullets' with heavy stopping power. The pistol utilizes eight forty five caliber cartridges in a semiautomatic firing mode that break up under the subcutaneous tissue releasing a therapeutic dose of the proprietary formula of the GMO dendrotoxin of one hundred nanoliters, incapacitating the target long enough for them to be secured without any harmful side effects in the process.                                   >>>continue reading>>>

Well, but for WO, it is not that weird. WO is still an officer(and is have the same authority with the commissioned officers and are not the NCO), and is have the different branch with normal officer titles. Also while WOs are considered as mid to high ranked officers, they are tend to be assigned to the special jobs which needs intensive training and are rarely commands a force. A high ranked WO can even respected as much as a general, but a WO don't command a division, for example.

For armed force level, still doctors are need to be regular officers since they may take a hospital or even a full medical branch, but for low ranked doctors WO is not half bad either.

ALL regular military doctors are commissioned officer with rank of Captain(or O-3 grade) at least, else they must be demoted after their promotion. I heard that some nations are gives O-2 grade for interns, though, but that's still higher for normal officer who must start with O-1.

Although it depends on the various military traditions, but most military traditions are based on our current era, and I don't think that most armed forces are stupid enough to not respect doctors, thus doctors are expected to start their career as the commissioned offficer. Among the humanity only Clans does if I remember correctly, for Clans doctors are not the warrior caste. But even for Clans, scientist caste is on the high echelon among the castes.

Nurses are depend on the curriculum to classified as either NCO or officer. But anyway they are also NCO at least. The reason is same as doctor.

Unless you want something akin to 'civilian personnel' that is civilian but work for the military, they surely shares the same rank structure with rest of your officers. And I don't think that doctors are suit for this and you should take your own military doctor with officer rank. Doctor is essential to the business which always push the personnel to the harm's way so you never make it without one, and is a profession worth enough to earn the commission. Also doctors with military rank have the authority to say no for ridiculous orders given by the other military personnel, which is an another reason why they have the officer rank. You may a master tactician, but your doctor is the better person if you want any medical aid unless you are also a doctor as well(and you will need an another doctor for you are also need to command the rest of your force).

You may outsourcing the medical service if the size of your company is literally as it is or even smaller. But if you have the force with enough size to have a permanent branch of your own medical teams, you need at least one doctor and nurse each with officer rank. You probably needs much more.

You need more British Public Service in your life. They have the best non-swearwords.

Which is ironic, since it was coined in profanity-laden The Thick of It before transitioning to usage by real-life opposition MPs.

I assume that the Sea Foxes made that one as a weapon demonstrator.

I always bought it as a super weapons trainer. One of everything for the shooting range.

I'm wondering why the Daishi X got reprinted without any mention of who came up with the configuration or how they used it.

Really, I wish we'd have gotten something else, like a variant with three headcapping weapons and 5 improved jump jets, or a stupidly large amount of LRMs, or some other "go nuts" configuration instead of a reprint of the Kitchen Sink.
I am working on it. There is always another NTNU.

I could see Kitano Takeshi as Theodore Kurita.  Any era, I feel the actor's done that thing where you age into a more serious version, just like the character did.

Part of me wonders whether Tom Cruise is viable for Victor - he's a suitable height.
