Yep, but if the soldier dies you can slap it on someone else. You can also use it to "salvage" a high ranked soldier that had piss-poor randomized skills and no psy ability.

Why would you need to wait with colonels? I don't want to piss away meld and money on troups that are half-disposable. You can reuse the mec suit, you can't reuse a gene mod on a dead soldier. Converting MECs late does kinda make sense if you want to have high aim. I found early-conversion resulted...

Start with mecs. They have amazing utility, especially with kinetic fist, and they are really tanky for a low cost.

Late game you want genes, because then you will have the research, the meld, and the material (colonels) to work on.
