I also noticed that he didnt add any ECM or Armor to his aircrafts.
Not adding ECM is an error, but in my experience armor isn't worthwhile—the hit to speed and range is just too big for what you get in return.

I watched LP by FrontFox and this guy has found 2 IMHO exploits/bugs:
- Bazooka as a sniper weapon. Ducking soldier has 70% to hit from whole map distance.
- Stucking aliens in UFOs, like this (I can see it with IR goggles):

Already fixed in 2.5

- Stucking aliens in UFOs, like this (I can see it with IR goggles):
Sandro pushed through a commit recently to try to reduce this from happening. But a proper solution will take a lot of work to rework the AI.

Aliens blocked by an obstacle, too dumb to find a way around.

I don't have time to make an "official" gameplay video that properly shows how the game works, but I do have a YouTube account that I've had for a long time, I'd be happy to upload a proper video under my account if someone else makes one.

I also have professional pro audio recording gear including some very good vocal mics for a professional narration, and non-linear video editing software to add final touches and put it together.

EDIT: Well, OK, I suppose I could make the time to put together a short video that shows a few missions at the start of a game, but if anyone wants to see stuff that is only shown later in the game, they'll have to submit recordings for me to include a few clips.

That GermWelfareNewMedia guy is politically incorrect in a rather hilarious way :) Just a few quotes:

"I'm a Yankee ... er, Northerner, I haven't done a honest day's work in my life" (talking about the farm map)
"Romney approves!" (after killing some civilian clad in Arab dress)

.. and there are more :)
