I think they will replace the Mutant merauders, won't they?
Would be logic in my opinion

Either that or they're...Allied Basic Infantry? I know it's streaching it a bit, but...

Well you mentioned Capitalism, and it's possible the Allies would hire Mercenaries to be (at the very least) cannon fodder for the more elite troops.

That, or possibly the mysterious third faction (who I still at this point think is Yuri for some odd reason...or possibly the "Tech Thieves" from those really old RA3 rumours that predate Generals).

Sir_Shockwave I think you r thinking about 19th century french legionaries, not mercenaries. 20th century mercenaries are expensive and on some cases necessary in the lack of a professional army or for missions where you dont want to compromise your own country's name.

in reality too expensive for mere cannon fodder, no , for that several nations use children soldiers.

I like the concept art, but you would expect private contractors to be better equipped and maybe carrying non-conventional weaponry, or stuff that is usually banned by current treaties and NATO, like incendiary ammunition for small guns for example.

The concept is great! But these guys as Allied Infantry?? No way... This would be terribly wrong if they were main infantry of allies.

Why main? ;) And why capitalists can't employ mercenaries? It is good practice, look at the USA (see black ops).

Well yes, as just SOME infantry, they sound good. But because allies are capitalists, that doesn't mean they have to have an army of recruited people who fight for money...

Just NVM. I'm just saying that Allies deserve lot better army of peacekeepers as MAIN infantry, not just mercenaries...

why make mercenaries available to just the Allies, their loyalties lie on the person who's giving them the money to carry out the mission right, why not make them available to all factions, they'll be an excellent wild card but if you hire them (depending on the price of the merc) you'll be charged interest of that price every few minutes or so until the contract is terminated or until time runs out.

(this is just an idea)

"We are soldiers of fortune. The one who pays - that our owner. Our house - Outer Heaven, but our fidelity belongs only to who has more than money. Capitalists generously pay for our work in local wars and black ops, therefore while we are necessary to them - we have a purpose and we are live."
- Big Boss - the leader of mercenaries, circa 19**.

Small riddle - guess to what party this unit belongs :)
