Tier One units as "races" for military settings

First of all, this is for a military setting game, and a high-leveled ones at that, but making Legendary starting characters takes a while so as much as I love detailed military settings I think starting a game a Seasoned for high leveled (i.e. Tier One, or veteran for the highest levels of Tier One units like AFOs) is much easier to make and gives the player a sense of progression for the character. Just remember these aren't balanced like normal, nor will these units be equally balanced as some are newer or better trained than others, even at this level. This stacks with the free edge a human gets (I did say high-level).
