Types of Armor

There is 6 armors you can research but your X-Com solders start out with the default armor called Body Armor which is very weak.The second one is the Carapace Armor which is a Medium Armor and gives you +4 HP Another one is the Skeleton Suit which allows the wearer to use a grappling hook and it gives the wearer +3HP and +10 Defense and is a medium armor. The Titan Armor is a Heave Armor that Gives +10 HP and immunity to fire and poison Archangel Armor is a heavy Armor Gives +8HP and allows 6 total moves of flight you can upgrade to allow for more fuel per mission. The Psi Armor is the last armor given in the game and only can be used by solders who have Psi-Abilities.

Chitin plating

This is going to be a hard armor to get because you will need 4 Chryssalid Corpse's per plating you make  and one needed to research which do not come until you play your first terror mission.Besides the Corspes you need you should have 15 enginners already if you did the satellites really good you will need Alloys which only are from the aliens and I do not remember how much it costs The reason why i think you need it is because you get 4 more hit points but the most rewarding is that it will reduce all melee attacks by at least 50 percent so put on the guys you use to attack Berserkers Zombie Chryssalid so that they can survive. So even through you need 5 Corspes in order to make one for the first time (4 any other time) This is needed for all front line guys

Info about Chryssalid,Zombie,Chryssalid Infant

Chryssalid is a big problem when you meet him for the first time because of the the health,defense,mobility and will

Stat            Easy  Normal   Classic     Impossible

Crit Chance    0     0               10             10
Defense        10     10              10            10
Health            8      8                  8             8
Mobility        20     20                20        20
Will               120     120            120     120

Now the main problem is that the Chryssalid will make the civilian or an unlucky X-Com officer that it killed by itself pregnant which will make them a zombie for 3 turns before they hatch an Chryssalid infant which kills the zombie but makes another Chryssalid you have to worry about DO NOT TRY TO USE THE ARC THROWER BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT BE CAPTURED I recommend using the rocket launcher on the Chryssalid and the zombies if they are together even in a new ship it will piss the scientists because you will have blown parts of the ship but it does not really matter.

The Zombie is also a big problem because even through he is the undead he is still a big pain in the butt

Stat                  Easy     Normal  Classic  Impossible

Critical Chance  0                0     10             10
Defense            0                 0     0               0
Health             10                10   10             14
Mobility            8                 8     8               8
Will                120               120     120     120

You will have to kill the Zombie in 3 tuens unless you want another Chryssalid in the field and The same with the Chryssalid DO NOT TRY TO STUN HIM BECAUSE HE IS IMMUNE TO BEING STUNNED

The defense of earth

when there is a alien threat comes to earth There is a military group called X-Com which helps defend the earth. The missions you will have to do (not all the type of missions) is a terror mission a council member friend needs help, a UFO(unknown Flying Object) that you have to intercept or a ship that has landed instead of being shot down. You are the commend of the group called of X-Com  which will kill the aliens and will defend the earth. You will have a home base around the world which you can choose and many other places around the world where you will have satellites so you know where a UFO is and where a UFO is and where the aliens are killing citizens (also known as terror site missions) You will be in control of a squad which has to defend earth no better what happens sometimes your whole squad dies if you are not careful or you can be lucky or good and not lose any guys. You can name your characters anything your heart desires and you can rename your characters nickname when he/she gets it
