The Foundry is one the most important buildings in Long War; as with the default game, it is essential for upgrading existing equipment and unlocking new items for further development. The Foundry is unlocked very early during the campaign and it is highly advised to get one up and running as quickly as possible. Besides enhancing and creating new technologies, the foundry also counts as a workshop for adjacency purposes.

Foundry projects are generally passive upgrades and whilst their effects may seem small, they can have a subtle but long-lasting impact on a campaign as they cover everything from boosting the chance of scoring critical hits with pistols, to enhancing the amount of materials recovered after combat. Unfortunately, these projects also require a significant investment of resources, especially meld. They also often require other rarer or more unusual materials such as corpses, wrecks, or UFO components.

Each project has an engineer requirement, while you can still start the project without meeting this requirement, the time to complete it will be significantly longer than usual.

One of the most important upgrade paths that the foundry gives access to is Interceptor upgrades, making them viable against the Alien UFOs. For a full list of some of the new items unlocked by Foundry projects, refer to the Equipment page.

Many foundry projects bear the same name and effects as their original incarnation, though with differing costs, requirements, and time.
