Exactly. They are small units, easily killed and must be used with care. Historically, glider crews, especially pilots, were ordered to get to the read (if there was a rear!), and report to an HQ unit.
Naturally, this was easier said than done. The Army wanted to avoid training more pilots and use the same ones again in the future. Thus they were a valuable commidity.
In MC-SE they are armed as described and probably will have to fight (as did the real ones). I remember the story during the last big drop of a group of glider pilots (usually officers or non-coms) that formed their own unit and fought effectively. As has been said, "Never were so few commanded by so many."
Use them, Rich. You'll probably need them and a few more besides
