As being part of a family who owns a PMC, it's actually cheaper and more bang for the buck to use us. We generally have superior training, or are on
par with most specialised units, if we werent, we wouldnt offer the service. There isn't an up roar when we die, we keep it quiet.
We can also get away with things the government can't, and we create a legal safety net if something goes wrong; in most cases we get blamed like we
should be for failures and our employers get to point the finger too.
We also tend to actually have better equipment then the government agencies unless you get their " elite " teams called in who actually have up to
date tech, and not an over priced rock.
Remember, the same meters we can buy for 5000 bucks costs the government about 10000 - 15000 dollars per unit. So we can get things done more
efficiently and actually costing the government less.
All of our teams are equipped with dragon armor as i call it, or skin, for example; a far superior protection system to that pos interceptor system,
also much lighter.
I am not a contractor, we just own a company.
Also note, most contractors, in a specialised field in the company, has come from government positions. EOD, Line units, Pilots, Snipers, ect. In a
contractor company you can greatly expand your knowledge. Contractors are nothing but improvements, mostly.
We actually consult and train some of these units. We generally end up with the latest and greatest before most government units know it exists; the
government will send their instructors to contractor schools and we will train them on the new tech.
They also see much more live action or actual combat than many government units; of course, this depends on the company too.
