I do notice that unlike modern armed forces, the EFSF prefers to use rookies
as test pilots as compared to, let's say the USAF using experienced
veterans. I also noticed that they tend to send out prototypes/test units
out into combat even to the point of having part of a whole battalion filled
with test units (08th MS). Why do you is this so?
