comment Is there any way to guide what class a rookie will become?
I never, ever used grenades or rockets. I got almost even numbers of each class - 4, 4, 3, and 3 (in some order) out of 14 soldiers. Also, this answer doesn't mesh with the upgrade that makes new soldiers squaddies.

comment positioning with different heights
If you want to move to a particular spot, pay attention to where it WOULD be drawn on the screen if the roof weren't in the way. You should be able to mouse onto that spot and move your soldier there.

comment What is the benefit of launching a satellite “a few days before the monthly report”
Another point of interest: The country and continent benefits of the satellite also start from the moment the satellite is launched. So there's very little incentive to launch the satellite before the last day of the month. Also, if you're broke, you'll be able to quickly hire an interceptor with the next month's payment so the satellite doesn't get shot down.

comment How many weapon fragments do I receive from killing an alien?
I don't know, but I think it's a constant number of weapon fragments per enemy weapon, probably two or three. When I was observing - late-game, when research speed was really high and weapon fragments were scarce - I noticed that the number was always even, and always close to double the number of aliens I killed.

Cleaned up grammar.

comment How does cover work?
A nitpick: "being flanked" doesn't really mean anything in the game; it's just an indicator that, yes, you have cover, but no, it doesn't count if it isn't between you and the alien.
