However, the Human blockade of the Jump Gate that connects the Paradiso system with the Combined Civilization limits alien replacement options and the renewing of equipment and troops.
After all, the Combined Army is an expeditionary force, with logistics complicated by the variety of races it is composed of. Moreover, its supply lines are constantly menaced by the units manning the blockade. For this reason, the presence of the Med-Techs on the front lines is a tactical imperative to recover hard-to-replace personnel and equipment.
