The short version is that each ship in a given mission has a % chance to stop that mission on being shot down or beaten when landed. The % chance is set independently per ship and mission. So for example a fighter in a gold transport mission might have a 100% chance to interrupt, but a fighter for a pogrom might be 2%

I never thought I'd see the day when alien infiltrations (or sway local govts in this case) can finally be completely stopped instead of just delayed.  Truly, Xcom is the best game ever.

What am I supposed to do in this Bounty mission (c)?: It is the mission with the cat and one enemy.

I read the description, but don`t find more then the one man and the cat in the mission.

description says they're in the car, you need to breach it

i'm not sure if hellerium grenade can destroy the doors on high roll, you can try equipping the girl in hover with all grenades that you have and then dumping them near the door

this is why you need a stash on your ship, if you're limiting yourself with what your gals start the battle with you're basically playing on challenge mode.

It the green craft at the top of the tower, you need to break in with something, hammers or pickaxes if nothing else.

Does the new interrupt rule also affect UFO ground assaults (e.g. raiding a landed excavator)?

each ship in a given mission has a % chance to stop that mission on being shot down or beaten when landed

So depending on how the mission parameters are set up, raiding landed excavators might affect later excavator waves in that particular mission.  You could probably check the rulesets if you want the cold hard numbers rather than just make guesses.

Decrypted data discs can also give the gatling lascannon for free.  No such luck with the implosion bomb launcher, though.
