B.A.T.S. are the perfect Cobra Troopers. They never question orders, complain about the chow, shirk duty, or surrender. They require no leave-time, sick-pay, or benefits of any kind, and they are cheap and easy to replace. On the other hand, B.AT.S. do not react very well to changes in field conditions, nor do they discriminate between targets. They will shoot at anything that moves, be it friend, foe or anímal. They also have an unfortunate tendency to burst into flame when hit from behind.
