[RELEASE] v8.0.5 - Asisstant Squad Leaders!

We're back again with another update! This update adds the long-awaited Squad Leader's Assistant role!

Squad leaders can now assign a squad member as an assistant, allowing that player to place constructions and mark enemies on the situation map. This will allow the squad leader to focus on rally point placement and leading the squad into battle!

More to come!

See you on the battlefield,
