Quick question. When on an escort mission, does the escorted person/thing count as a grunt for all intents and purposes, including targeting and numbers generated by the PEF?
I think that depends on the rules, I guess In Star Marine 5150 there's a table with the description of Escort Mission that tells you who you're escorting, and another to generate the stats. That's on page 42.
