* The unit of time used in the game engine/data script is in milliseconds by default.

* All energy values that appear in the game are divided by 100 from the actual engine/data script values.

* Player-controlled units will receive -60% incoming damage and increased manoeuvrability, as well as alternative firepower.

* AI-specific parameters such as flight altitudes or attack patterns are completely ignored when the unit is directly controlled by the player.

* AI-controlled air units can override their pre-set flight altitude values when targeting player-controlled vehicles above them, or when attacking host stations.
