In-game description

A Critically Wounded Soldier (sometimes abbreviated to CWS) is a type of dead player that can be submitted into a Field Hospital or Hospital in exchange for 4 Soldier Supplies after 10 minutes. When a player is downed and expires or is killed, they have a 5-10% chance to turn into a Critically Wounded Soldier which can be carried by other players. Critically Wounded soldiers can be distinguished from corpses as they are always lying on their side and are not covered in blood. To pick-up a Critically Wounded Soldier, simply press 'V' on the corpse and your character will pick them up. You can submit Critically Wounded Soldiers into an Ambulance or Field Hospital by pressing the 'Submit Large Item' button on the relevant vehicle or building interface. Once submitted to a Field Hospital/Hospital the Critically Wounded Soldier will appear in the building inventory.

CWS is a Large Item.
