Maybe im just blind this morning, but I can't figure out how fighters determine their speed and damage amounts and such. I see them as a component, but the only setting is "is unit". I don't see them in the vehicle list, and i can't figure out if they even have changeable components. The manual just says they can be launched, but not a whole lot more. Any help pointing me in the right direction is greatly appreciated.

Check out main_enemies.txt in the campaign folder.

This file has 3 parts.

Part 1 is global, it lists components that every AI fighter, ship etc. must have.

Part 2 names particular weapon combinations that the AI uses.

Part 3 shows the vehicle entries. Here is where you can adjust shields and armor, etc. The field "Weapon Preference Name" refers back to Part 2. You can edit the weapons by either just putting in a new (existing) preference in this field, or by going back to Part 2 and creating/changing a preference.
