While there's a list of firing intervals on the UFOpaedia page about UFOs, there's no such list for TFTD. Does anybody happen to know them?

It's been a few years since I looked at these but from memory they're unchanged from EU. Just part of the quick re-skin of EU with very little actually changing under the hood.

If you check the Talk pages of the relevant Ufopedia articles there's a slight chance there might be a data dump.

Also see if I did a Firepower chart for TFTD USOs. I was drafting one but I don't know if it was ever finished enough to publish it. If I did, that would have the RoF in it.

I remember there being a lot of uncertainty about how to interpret the game file data for USO RoF.

Did a code dig myself. They are, indeed, the same (with the exception of difficulty modification). Also cleared up some old myths while I was at it.

What myths did your code dig clear up? (There's plenty!)

I edited the UFOpaedia with all of them at the time, but:

- UFO's Battleship gun has a power of 140, not 148
- UFO's Battleship has 3,000 HP on DOS (not 3,200)
- TFTD's Battleship has a gun power of 140, and the Dreadnought 120 - the opposite way around from UFO, which has 120 for the Terror Ship (equivalent to TFTD Battleship) and 140 for the Battleship (equivalent to TFTD Dreadnought).

(Of course, the Dreadnought is still a fiercer foe than the TFTD Battleship due to its huge health and greater range.)
