About the PDF:
Specialist troops offer advantages the wise commander can exploit, or prevent the enemy from making use of their own advantages. Anti-armour and anti-aerospace specialists level the playing field for other troops, whilst recon experts provide vital information and commandos take advantage of it.
Specialist Forces presents information on these experts, along with rules governing their functions and equipment for their use.
