This is only one data point but in my FLDP interview with a top A&D company, we had zero technical questions. All were fit-based in every stage of interviewing.

Thanks, did you have to do a case study or anything along those lines?

Also, about how many offers do they generally give per superday?

We didn't have a case study- just four 30-minute interviews spaced throughout the day. At my company they do 4 superdays: one on the west coast, two central ones, and one on the east coast. On average they give 5 offers per superday, and on average they interview 10-15 people at each location.. But these are averages, sometimes they give more or less offers at a location if they like the crop. But still, they give 20ish offers out of 40-60 interviews.. pretty decent odds.
My only advice is to make sure you have a good answer prepared for when they ask why you want the job. Start big and end small- talk about why you want to be in corporate finance, and then why you want to be in that industry, and then why you want to be at that company, and then lastly why you want that role. Listen to the last earnings call, read over the 10k, read recent articles about the company. Your goal is to show that you truly want to work for that company, and are not just looking to get into an FLDP.

Had a superday with Ford and there was a case sent out beforehand that we reviewed during the interview. Pretty basic question of where a plant should be based, with different costs given. Had another with an industrials company that was mainly fit as well. Would recommend reading the company 10k and having some questions prepared for the interviewer.

It depends on the company. My company asks basic valuation questions and accounting questions. I remember interviewing at other FLDPs and most were behavioral. Some companies will definitely have cases but I don't think that's the norm in corporate finance out of undergrad.

You will definitely be quizzed on the company. Make sure you read their 10k and any other investor relations reports.

Definitely depends on the company, but you are less likely to get technical questions if you have a good GPA and go to a school from which the company does OCR.

You will generally get basic finance questions if you do get any technical questions like questions regarding the financial statements.
