"Well, the melee is your standard light Demi. Thin, lightweight armour, pretty quick and agile. It's got two hands, so it can use virtually anything. The ranged is a bit heavier than usual, bit on the slow side. The armour is decently thick, though a bit on the cheap side, and and it's only got one hand, the left forearm ends in a circular shield."
>How engineers are assigned
"Well, they're generally chosen based on your psyche profile. They get picked on the basis they'll work well with you, though they are their own person, so there will be conflict now and then. The two Demi have two different pilots though, one specialized for assisting with aiming systems, while the other will help with balance so your close combat skills will be smoother, less likely to send you to the ground on a bad step."
>Choice of equipment
"Melee has a choice of short sword and buckler or a two handed axe. Ranged only has a light rifle, your choice of bayonette or scope."
"Well, you're still a soldier, expected to follow orders. As a pilot though, you're assume to be intelligent and adaptable enough to be able to go through with those orders in the way you deem to be best."
