Not sure how much of a solution that really is tho.. if you activate target optics it puts you in red alert.. that red alert however is only 3 seconds long, the one you want to happen would have to be a real red-alert at least.

That still wouldn't be much of a solution to science player's buffing nanite health monitors from different kits tho.

In space when you buff someone with a healing ability and switch the boff after it the healing ability is canceled i wonder if the same could be done for ground.

Maybe switching a kit should generally put all the abilities from the kit on a full cooldown in the beginning, but even that would still present some benefits (like doing nhm then switching physicist), so canceling buffs is something that may be still needed in some way.
