After developing better Fulton extraction devices, you will be able to extract objects as well, including vehicles, materials containers, and weapon emplacements such as machine guns and mortars. * The success rate of Fulton extractions depends on factors such as your Support Unit’s level, the weather, and the subject’s physical condition.
* You cannot perform a Fulton extraction when there is a ceiling above you.
