I've noticed some of my soldiers occasionally have a green ^ or a red ^ (upside down) next to their cover icon.

What is the meaning of this?

These indicate stat penalties and bonuses. For example, if a unit is suppressed, it gets a -30 aim penalty. This unit will then have a red downward arrow next to the shield to indicate it has a stat penalty.

I'm looking for a list of penalties and bonuses, but I'm at work at the moment, so I can't look too hard. – SaintWacko Dec 4 '12 at 15:05
I assume if I examine the unit's info panel it will say what the active influences are, yes? – Shaderach Dec 4 '12 at 15:07
I believe it will, yes. – SaintWacko Dec 4 '12 at 15:08
