So on the gyrocopter craft. in the description it says: "Can strafe" and "Turn 1/16" what do these mean exactly?

"Strafing" means moving sideways. Most of the 1x1 units can strafe (hold "ctrl" when ordering to move), which saves few TUs, because gal doesn't have to spend them on turning around.
"Turn 1/16" I can only assume works like with other 2x2 vehicles with turrets that not only can turn themselfs in 8 directions, but also their turret in another 8.

Actually, no; it means that turning is slower than normal. Normally it's 1 TU per a 1/8th rotation (so a full 360 degrees takes 8 TU); but vehicles take more than that.

What does political pressure do? Is it a recurring bonus/penalty to infamy?

It is not recurring. It is one time.

Rallehop,
Not sure if that not trolling. There is a research topic litterally called "We Need Craft Weapons" wich will give you first 14mm for free, further research will open manufacturing and finally contacts to just buy 25mm.

Recently I've started a new game in the Europe and political pressure there works as a recurring penalty, every couple months I get hit with -50 infamy event. It also regularly provides more nukes, so I'm fine with this

That is not political pressure, it's just a recurring event.

Notably, Fuso and also Turan have events like that. Fuso positive, Turan negative.

rocket from rocket launcher hitting a turret uses side armour or under armour?
According to UFOpaedia units on the impact tile and the eight tiles immediately surrounding it use under armour, otherwise they use side armour facing the explosion. This fits with my experiences while playing.
Quotes from wiki:
Quote from: Explosions#Ground_Zero_Effect
Units at ground zero (center of blast) and the eight adjacent tiles (GZ+1; nine tiles in total) receive damage through their Under Armor. All others receive damage to the side facing ground zero (never Under Armor).

This is true regardless of whether using thrown items (grenades, Hi-Ex) or shot/launched explosives (AC-HE, HC-HE, Rockets, Blaster).
Quote from: Damage#Effects_of_Armour
Armour is the protective plating found on any of the possible sides that the attack may hit. Its role in the damage calculation is simply to reduce the final calculated damage after the random roll and damage modifiers have been applied.

For firearm damage, units can be hit from the Front, Rear, Left and Right armour.

Explosive and area-effect stun damage will target Under armour if the target is at or adjacent to the centre of the explosion (i.e. a Direct Hit). For all other ranges in the blast radius are treated as directional damage originating from the centre of the explosion.

Well, I thought one was reffering to the 'political pressure' line that EVERY CONTINENT has, most of which have no impact beyond one time.

@room

This month, Bootypedia's website went down.

We couldn't figure out what happened and how to fix it.

The invited specialist also could not help.

Kato's Online Bootypedia has been declared deceased.

We disclaim the responsibility to maintain the site xpitatez[.]wtf, because we are not sure that such unsolvable (for us) problems will not be repeated on another hosting.

We would like to thank everyone who helped financially with the maintenance of the site xpitatez[.]wtf

The unspent balance is included in the Kardalak artist salary (seven slides for the new X-PirateZ cutscene, which is not yet in the game).

Now please use Baturinsky's Online Bootypedia (the author of the xpedia engine, the project is actively developing) https://baturinsky.com/xpedia/

Since the publication of this post, OAK C.G. has nothing to do with any Online Bootypedia existing on the Web; for all questions, please contact the site administration of https://baturinsky.com/xpedia/ or the administration of other Bootypedia sites, if any.

Since the publication of this post, OAK C.G. is not related to any sites using the xpitatez[.]wtf domain, if any.

This post is the answer to any possible questions regarding the Online Bootypedia, residing at xpitatez[.]wtf

Thank you all for browsing,
OAK Creative Group represented by Osobist, Alexander and Kato.

Would my hideout benefit from dojo, if it already has Revolution HQ?
(I mean for various trainings, not for freshness recovery bonus)

As far as I can tell yes, it adds that many more training spots. Just like Onsen and Luxury Spa stack training spots. So you can train up more gals/units
