In FRED 2 (the mission editor program), place a ship (such as a SJ Sathanas) somewhere, then place another one so that they take up the same space. This is easier if you have "View Models" or at least "View Outlines" enabled, since you can place the second ship so that its center is just off the surface of the first one. The second ship you place will automatically be named "U.R.A. Moron 1".
During "Endgame" mission 25, the developers accidentally left 99 UD-8 Kaysers available in the pre-launch weapon selection screen even though the weapon is not acutally introduced until much later in the game. Use them. While they cause a significant drain in your power reserves when compared to other weapons, the Kaysers are the strongest primary weapons in the game and will destroy the waves of NTF fighters you encounter during this mission.
