if you look at the UFOPEDIA in fight simulator some of the STR_ appears.

Bug or feature Magma Security has a slightly better armor than Magma Heavy

All I found was one terrain, anything else?

I guess, they have lighter armour to carry heavier weapons? I can't remember, but seems likely.

The easiest way to take out the tank is to blow the trashcans with the tank but it will destroy the gear pile.
You can have somebody going out shooting the trashcan but it's long
In this map a trashcan also block one side door (manageable with laser)
The skymarshall is at ground level, that causes problems on several maps., if you open the door without steeping  out. I remember some years ago landing with FMP in the jungle with vegetation in the ship.
Maybe having it 1 square above ground like the skyranger could avoid some problems.

Sorry, without a save I can't say anything. There have been no other reports of any problems with this mission, so I have no idea where to start.

If you still can't upload the file for any reason (though I can't see any potential one), you could join the X-Com Files Discord channel and just drop it there in #bugreports.

I can upload the file now. Weird. Maybe I couldn't because it was my first post and I wasn't fully approved yet?

Anyway, now that I can upload it, I don't actually need to. Looking at the save file I see that it's so much smaller than every other save file I have. Weirdly, it seems to have deleted every line that doesn't have to do with the battle. I'm guessing that I get a game over when I load it because the file doesn't have any XCOM bases, so I guess the game thinks the aliens won?

Have you ever seen saves getting ruined like this?

No, I haven't encountered anything like this. Looks like your save is ruined, might be a disk error. Sorry about that.

I've made a WIP for XCF (here https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,7872.0.html ). And I realized that the black sprite you used to cover hands is a 3x3 one (the one I used for covering the scabbard). It covers Quick draw slot a bit in my WIP for the suit armor)

Well, maybe you need to modify it :) Or move the quick slot, if it makes sense.

I will change it as soon as I know how. But since it's a potential bug, even if harmless one (and something we tend to forget) I have just reported it here.

I have researched the webwear , got it in ufopedia, has already extracted some silk. but I can't see it in the production panel.
EDIT: My bad,  I had put it within Hidden, surely with a bad click.

Small shotgun has the wrong HANDOB (looks like a regular shotgun).

one small bug the webwear is described as a 2x3 item in file, the item itself only takes the place of a 2x2 item, but it's a 2x3 item, you can see it if you make a stack of it the number is at the bottom of the sprite.

from a deep one mission I got 3 Human sacrifice, and has no research linked to it
