Terrorist numbers

I'm am not sure if the numbers given for the terrorists on this ship are always correct. This week I downed a gillman ship on a surface attack mission which was guarded by 10 Xarquids. Difficulty was superhuman and I am using the dos version with the 2.1 patch and the survey ship and dye grenade are patched as well. Unfortunately I did not keep the savefile.--Tauon 18:27, 10 October 2010 (EDT)

I concur. I am right now on a Battleship crash recovery mission, difficulty is Veteran. I was just curious and edited UNITPOS.DAT (normally I do that only when I can't find the last alien) and it turned out there are 8 Tentaculats. Save can be found here. --N21 (talk) 05:52, 23 February 2014 (EST)

I've done some testing and can confirm that the above comments are correct. Aliens present on Veteran difficulty terror missions (used X-Com Hack v3 to check):
  • Three Gillmen missions: soldier 6-7, squad leader 2, technician 1, terrorist 5-7
  • Four Lobster Man missions: soldier 5-6, squad leader 1, technician 2, navigator 1, terrorist 5-7
  • Three Aquatoid missions: soldier 5-6, squad leader 1-2, technician 1-2, medic 1-3, navigator 1-3, terrorist 6-8 --Darkpast (talk) 12:43, 13 July 2014 (EDT)
