After failing a mission I want to reconstitute some of my squads with leftover LATs. I have enough Fire Teams left over to reconstitute a squad but I want to know if the squad comes back as Line since the Fire teams were never casualties and they started out as Line members of their respective squads. It makes sense that if I used Paralyzed or Litter team LATs they would return as Green squads but do these Fire teams?

Fire teams all have Green experience level, only assault teams are Line.

So that's even if they were split from a Line squad?

That's correct. Even if they came from a Vet squad they'd come back as green.

However, if you have a 2-Step Line Squad and add a Green Fire Team, you end up with a 3-Step Line Squad, so take that into consideration when re-forming. Likewise a 2-Step Vet Squad taking on a Green fire team would remain Vet.

Yes, its a decision you make when you split teams off from their squads;
gives you more flexibilty and potentially less casualties but there are drawbacks.

For example they don't obey platoon orders anymore, each team now has to be given individual orders.

You can try and be clever here with the pyros that all units may respond to but I have found that it's much better to retain platoon integrity.

The exceptions to this are fire teams which were generated because a weapons team ran out of ammo, etc. They return with their original experience.
