In the file diplomats.c is the code for diplomat/spy contests.
It is in the function diplomat_success_vs_defender.
The base chance for these contests is 50%
A spy attacker or defender adds 25% to this.
Then a second addition or subtraction is done depending what level the spy or
diplomat is. The code multiplies the level by 15. This is clearly a mistake.
It is too high for hardened and elite units.
The chance for a green spy to beat a green diplomat = 75%
The chance for a veteran spy to beat a green diplomat = 90%
The chance for a hardened spy to beat a green diplomat = 105%
The chance for an elite spy to beat a green diplomat = 120%
This is an important bug. In the last longturn game my spies eliminated over
60 enemy diplomats without loss a few hours after espionage was researched
