Signed. Let them study the many soldiers in VA hospitals that are suffering from traumatic stress disorder and leave the poor animals alone. Thanks Simone.

So you desire to deprive your soldiers of medics and surgeons trained as well as possible in saving their lives when they are injured on the battlefield?

Your request is unethical.

The pigs might not even suffer, since most likely they can be under anaesthetics for the duration of the training and dont have to wake up afterwards.

The training procedure I know of a pig is anesthetized and then shot.
One possible task is then to save the pigs life and make its stable enough for evacuation.
Another possible task is to perform surgery treating the injury.
When the training is done the dose of anesthetic is increased until the pig dies, so no pain or suffering is felt by the pig.
