Can I use the Medkit for my own selfish needs, for example?

Michael,

Sorry for the delayed reply, but the answer is simply that, no, you can't use the med kit for the purpose of healing your own casualties.

This was a platest suggestion, however, and so this is not the first time that the idea has been proposed, but the casualties that are simulated by the game are serious enough that it's assumed someone is totally out of action, not merely lightly wounded.

As a point of fact, the Special Forces, when they would go out with medical equipment normally intended for villagers and locals, et cetera, brought the kinds of things meant to treat the common kinds of ailments that you might expect to encounter in a town or a village (penicillan, denistry items, bandages, and so on), not anything that could deal with a serious gunshot wound to the stomach or so. :)
