Yes, you can assign scientists and workers to multiple projects if you so choose. That's the main difference.
Aaand that flexibility is the reason why those 2 categories were in the original Xcom too  ;)
I agree that Medics are kinda redundants, because a hospital wing is usually fully staffed, the patient will heal itself and that takes time, no matter how much doctors are involved.
Research or engineering projects, on the other hand, have so many tasks to do that having more people to help can speed up the process.

What I'd like to see is some variability in Scientists or Workers.
Perhaps they could have a small (like 5%) bonus in their expertise field, like biology, mathematics, particle physics, composite materials, system designs, weaponry... Some are better at repairing, others at making brand new stuff or pulling appart alien stuff...

Just my 2 cents  ;)

As far as nostalgia goes, I do have very fond memories of the XCOM Blaster Bomb... No need to repeat the huge blast radius, it was still the ultimate guided missile. Turning around corners was just awesome for players but it was rerely used effectively by the aliens. A great way to instill the fear of grouping soldiers and a fast and dirty way to give exeperience to rookies  ;D

Self-destructing combat robots (Cyberdisk anyone  ::) )

Oh and someone mentionned Chrysalids... I DO hope some kind of egg-laying horror like it gets added, it was especially terrifying on a Terror mission at superhuman level (where it took several explosions to kill even one), but once we had the flying suit they became much less of a problem, unlike the tentaculat from Xcom2, too damned frustrating in it's ambushes   :'(

I did'nt see anyone mentioning some kind of "Phasing" technology, to allow a craft to escape from a single hit, or a soldier to pass through a wall...
