Do you have numbers broken down to back these claims?
Unless something major has changed in the last few (2 or 3) versions, the Lascannon has average DPS (~3.4, rank 15-ish) for a trained pilot. For an untrained pilot it places higher (~2.7, rank 10-ish). However, this assumes that the enemy craft is unarmored - in other words, the Lascannon is an excellent weapon for taking out the trash and/or doing pilot training, but against anything armored, it's useless. Okay, it is better than Ramjet and Gauss Cannon, but that's because those two suck. If there's a complaint to be had, it's that the Ramjet is useless when you get it: given the range of most enemies, 50 isn't a (big) advantage and the Ramjet has atrocious damage output (worst DPS of all heavy weapons). A slight damage bump to 45 or even 50 would make it a weapon that one can actually consider to use.

EDIT: Typo.

Does the interception (and consequent shoot down) of Armored Ambulances trigger retaliation by the Academy?

There might be a point where the game engine breaks but i've never found it. That said about 5-6 years is average.
Probably 2 147 483 647. If you manage to get that high before dying of old age yourself, congratulations. :D

In 0.99J10 as stated here seems that there is only one mission which reqjires the airbus to be engaged. What is it?
The X-Prison mission from the Dr. X story line can only be done with the Airbus/-van, or Rail Pod.

Oi lads, I need some help. Enemies just destroy my new base that does not even have anything in it yet, except, fire mines, hangar and extractor. I cant find a way to prevent it. I am building flak, but I cant finish it in time.
Ship everything out and sell all buildings. Sometimes you just have bad luck and lose a base.

I think the negative score might be from something else (conversions?), or a combination of 'something elses'.
There was a Conversion mission - if left alone, that's 1400 points just from the landings - and even more from the fly-overs. ;)

That high activity in north africa is most probably caused by ratman patrols looking for my base. Yet they have not found it, while it was attacked by Academy and Doom monsters meanwhile.
Well, the Conversion mission that happened in North Africa will have done more damage than the Ratmen Patrols did.

I just tried the City Raid mission, and i put some of my gals in thief gear, but the others became 'boxed'.
Box armor is the hack used to handle players using armor they shouldn't for a mission. You can't break them out of that.

Liber occultus or its translation?
You need Human Mage, #001, BH Brass Badge, and Ye Old Magic Shoppe. The later needs Soulsense, Persuasion, and VooDoo (which can be gotten different ways, including a Liber Occultus Translation. Or through a Human Mage, which you need anyway. ;)).

Not sure this would count as a bug, but I've got a church ship doing an influence mission.  I looked up influence to get an idea of the later waves, and it specifically mentions the Academy and Guild doing them.  So I guess it would be a bug if the church isn't supposed to also do them.  I don't know, I wasn't sure where else to mention it
Ufopedia is incorrect - Influence missions are done by the (non-military versions of) Church, Academy, and Guild.

I've noticed several times where an enemy has his back to me, then i shoot at him or melee him a bit, and walk away...he hasn't seen me at all so far. But then while i'm walking away, he suddenly does a 180 and fires at me. Why does this happen and why don't my gals do the same?
Once you shoot/attack an enemy, he can "see" you. If you then do an action that is worthy of a reaction check (like walking), it triggers. Since this is after attacking, your TU is likely to be very low and thus the reaction check succeeds.
Your Gals act the same. Just keep more TU in reserve to experience it. ;)

Where I can find "Secure Freight" (item)??
Down a Heavy Frighter and plunder it.

The 'Trojan:Script\Foretype.A!ml' is a known trojan and therefore the likelihood of a false positive is (in my opinion) quite small... so you probably have a real infection... but the file was infected after you have downloaded piratez, because nobody else seems to have this issue.
Windows Defender is very bad in indicating heuristic results (as in, it doesn't do it at all), so not necessarily. I'd upload the file to first before entering panic mode - takes all of five minutes and if he's infected, nothing new will be stolen in that time.

So the hideout and the cutoff aren't related?
When you lose a country to Zero Tolerance Policy, a faction base is created in it. So they are related - but destroying the base won't get you the country back.
