If I have the Officer Training School upgrade Lead by Example and I have squad of 6 colonels, who will be the leader of the squad?

  • Generically, if all your troops are the same rank, how is the leader chosen?

The highest ranked unit is your squad leader. If two or more units have the same rank, the foremost-unit on the squad-selection screen is taken to be the leader.

6 colonels

With 6 colonels, this is always the third unit.

  • hmmm so that's how is it, but say we have an instance that, that lead have a lesser will than any of them, does the will of those will have their will lessened because they have a lesser willed leader?

    @ken I'm not sure, ask that as a separate question. Jun 5, 2014 at 5:24

    And prior to buying any increased squad size, it is the second soldier from the left that is chosen - that soldier is always in the same physical location on the screen, regardless of squad size.
