"the average lifespan of a Guardsman once deployed is under 15 hours"
So comparing the other options in the diferent tiers i think tier 1 for an IG is be more than enough xd.
Well, reading about common nemesises IG meets, I'd say it require very professional soldier to live through active tyrannide assault or Drukhari raid for 15 hours!
Not professional, just hundred or thousand of them, after all its not the imperial guard soldier the one who makes the difference in the battle, is usually their numbers so that they can resist until reinforcement arrive, or their tanks and their air support. But the soldier??, without a commisar...
Edit: i wanted to add too that you cant think that an imperial guard soldier is at the same lvl that a commisar, sister of battle, eldar ranger, an ork kommando or a scout space marine, all of them are really out of the league for the common imperial guard.
