p. 21 covers TERROR effecta vis-a-vis PANIC.
p. 41-43 covers TERROR effects vis-a-vis Infantry Close Assault.
These are the only places that I found it mentioned. Also, the section
specificly says that TERROR effects should be agreed upon or designated
ref, and also says that TERROR effects can depend on the type of troops
side. This leads me to conclude that is could be resonable for some
be subject to TERROR from a specific source while others are not. e.g.
well equipped regular forces w/nomex undies do not receive TERROR from
weapons, but conscript forces and volunteer militia w/o fire resistant
do. Or newbies who have never encountered or even heard of
xenomorphs/bugs/Posleen are ready to kick butt, but veterans who have
their buddies swarmed under do suffer TERROR from such drooling
So you could say that well equipped NAC, NSL, and IJF professionals have
skivvies, but the ESU doesn't waste funds on such frivolities for their
