** In addition, researching and building them each costs a singularity core, which can only be recovered from raiding a battleship, i.e. the strongest UFO in the game (minus TheUnfought Dreadnought). So you can only get the Fury once you demonstrably don't need it anymore.

* BarrierBustingBlow: The racial ability of the Androns, as well as [[spoiler:Sentinel power armors]]. Also possible with the more powerful heavy automatic weapons (laser, plasma, [[spoiler:magnetic]]), with the first few shots in a ten-round burst vaporizing the barrier in the way, and the remaining ones making Swiss cheese of the target.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Female Xenonauts can be shown to have been recruited from special forces units that don't allow women in their ranks, such as the U.S. Navy [=SEAL=]s.

* ItsUpToYou: Averted. While obviously the Xenonauts are the only organization that can really go toe to toe with the aliens, police and military forces will sometimes be on maps which will fight against the aliens when they can, and occasionally local forces will even bring down one of the smaller UFOs for the Xenonauts so they can execute a ground mission.

** The Hunter Scout Car IS the [[BritsWithBattleships Ferret armoured car]], even being referred to as "ferret" in the game's code.

** Though it is less justified than in [[VideoGame/XCom]], since, unlike in X-COM, your soldiers have what unit they were in before joining the Xenonauts listed in the equipment screen, as well as any previous combat experience, meaning you can have female soldiers coming from units that didn't allow women to join in 1979, and some of which still don't allow women to join.

** It ends with [[spoiler:him saying that "nobody has done more than I to ensure the survival of the human race", though he has little doubt that the commander's name will be written in the history book just below his. And commenting that he could destroy the entire planet in seconds if he wanted to, even though you, the commander, are the one in charge]]


Added DiffLines:

* MultiNationalTeam: Just like in X-Com, though even more noteworthy as it is set during the middle of the Cold War, includes soldiers and base personnel from both the west and the east, and the various interceptors are based off of designs from both the US and the USSR
