Mad Bomber

Mad Bombers, first appearing in Chapter 3, have the same uniform as the Comm Trooper, with the exception of the helmet and the detonation harness (they also never wear tabi boots/greaves). It is not clear whether all of the bombers are "mad", i.e., whether their primary task is suicide bombing, or whether they're explosive experts assigned to demolition tasks, merely ready to use suicide as a last resort. Phrases like "We're all doomed" and "Happy to die?" are hardly ever heard ingame, so the extent of the Bombers' nihilism is understated. Since Muro's Strikers are essentially maniacs, it is interesting to give consideration to the question, "Just what do they believe in?", and the Bombers are an important piece of the puzzle.
