    I'm glad they were all dead...

    It would be the end of Corporal Hicks!! When I entered the ship there was 4 dead aliens together... I wonder if they were all alive, Hicks would have turned into grinded meat... or worst!

    Lucky you, CPL. Corporal Hicks
    I usually send in my backup rookie (I take the guy just for this occasion) with a grenade in hand to blow up the powercore beside them. It usually kills all aliens in an instant and the explosion ends right next to the doorway in which the rookie usually stands.

    I assume the UFOs will get a lot more interior tiles to them. I haven't seen anything bigger than the larger scout, and even it felt really barren. That one is just sad.

    Yeah they will, I've seen some unused tiles in game folder which could go nicely to the interiors of the ufos.
    But I think the corvette is just to small, it should have at least 2 levels, imho. It's weird that aliens can cramp whole terror mission crew in such small space.

    LOL, yeah, I think it's good to take the disposable rookie in all missions, so they can go inside the ships kamikaze style
    I was thinking there would be only 1 alien, as usual... So I thought that Hicks could had taken care of it!

    I also agree that the corvette should be bigger, It's so big in the air combat screen, and so small on ground combat... 2 Floors at least!!!!

    Think that one has less floorspace than the Large Scout in EU

    Even the aliens have to downsize due the the economy!

    Or this is just the version of the "Small Scout" in EU, which means that the Corvette is at least 50% bigger...

    Well, yeah, rough times, you have to cut corners. But seriously what were they thinking? Having warships shot down by 70's jet planes is downright embarrassing.

    On a more serious note, I'd like to know what changes xenonauts made to their airplanes, compared to Earth's nations. It raises some eybrows that xenonauts are so hugely successful in downing alien ships and rest of Earth's forces is just crap.

    I'm thinking the "Polarized Armor" from the show Enterprise

    or, as the fluff states, some sort of painted material that dissipates energy projections.

    Aha! Thanks, I missed that. Come to think of it, these weapons must be riddiculously powerful, when Corvette can down your interceptor with just 2 shots. And its near impossible to dodge Corvette's shots!

It would be really nice if we had crash sites caused by the army of determined country, wouldn't it? Like "Crash site 39 - UFO downed by Russian Air Force", something like this.
    Well, that would kinda go against the whole "Player guided organisation vs Aliens" theme, I think. National guard getting theirs asses kicked in ground missions is good enough for me
    And when we get Military bases tileset it will be even better!
