The Population Boom card says that it doesn't effect Fireteams, but I don't see the word Fireteam on any other card. Am I missing it?

DEF: A fireteam is a small military unit of infantry. It is the smallest unit in the militaries that use it. Usually 2-4 soldiers.

IN GAME: The infantry cards that have a weapon, Anti-Tank Javelins, Mortars, Stinger SAM's etc are fireteams. You will find "Fireteam" on these cards sub-types, just under the Name of the Card.

USAGE: If not a fireteam, the infantry unit will be a "Squad". And Squad-based units WILL be affected by a draft, or "Population Boom". BUT? Just because there are more people in the quad doesn't make the actual Stinger SAM or mortar round any more powerful, right?

e.g. http://www.powerthegame.com/cards/120mm-mortars/
