There are many plot cards that require the discarded a soldier: Market square b., amsterdam s. attack, military base attack, frankfurt s. attack etc., (case lead must discard a soldier..).
Question: Are the soldiers discarded only soldiers belonging to the player using the Asset? Only soldiers already deployed to the threat? Only undeployed soldiers?
There is a similar question on bgg(Dar Adal), which responded gf9, by analogy, it turns out that discarded soldiers need only undeployed(in the pool of the player)? from the threats cards of soldiers can not discarded? Correct?
Undeployed Soldiers (in a players pool)
When Gold Intel or Fallout card states discard soldiers it will be from
the named players pool e.g. Case Lead of resolving threat.
May substitute for Burn an (activated) asset depending on Fallout of
Deployed Soldiers (on a threat card)
When Gold Intel or Fallout card states discard deployed soldiers, normally from all threats.
Otherwise they are only discarded when threat is removed via a drone strike or after threat has been analysed (resolved)
