Variable hiring cost for squad members

I’d love to see a system such as that used in Jagged Alliance whereby the hiring cost for different soldiers varied based on the starting attributes, perks, and equipment of those soldiers.

One criticism levelled at both modern and old Xcoms is that once you lose your A team soldiers that any replacements brought in will be a bunch of duffers, so what if instead there were A team replacements already out there and available to hire, but maybe just unaffordable at the beginning of the game?

Good point. This was exactly how JA2 dealt with restocking your troops and increasing the squad size later on: you simply went for high-end mercs who were already good enough to match your now levelled up squad. They even brought their own advanced weaponry too
