I invested into S.H.I.V tech and I have a hover S.H.I.V and a alloy S.H.I.V ready in my barracks. However, I'm unable to edit the loadout of these units (everthing except "dismantle" is greyed out) and when I take one on a mission, it comes unarmed which makes it pretty useless except for scouting.
I read somewhere that it might be a bug that occurs when you lose a S.H.I.V in battle, which is exactly what happened to me.
So the question is: Is this a confirmed bug or is there anything I'm missing? And if it is a bug, is there any workaround? Can the save-game be edited to fix this somehow?
