Anyone else notice the A-26 in the background in the hangar has "Trooper" Eddie painted on the tail?

 

Spoiler

 

Anymore Easter eggs?

Ok at this point I have spotted 9 Iron Maiden references in the Hangar, as well as a possible Eddie standing near the A-26

I'm terrible at Easter Egg spotting. Who's Eddie?

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Eddie is Iron Maiden's zombie mascot.

Oooh. So they have an Iron Maiden tie-in? Or is it just a comment on how the game is just shambling mindlessly forward?

UPDATE: Your correct OP. Its Iron Maiden. I suspect it was Lesley_Knife influences from the RU forums.

Shame Bruce n the boyz tied in with this pos property at this stage of the game.  Best war song?  The Trooper would get my vote before Aces High.  Speaking of Aces, listen how fast paced the song is, under 5 minutes...that's what the early version of this game was, with three tier spread, discernible traits between all the aircraft, and full 15 v 15 human gamers.  Too much of a challenge for most whiners players, absent marketing department, and a moronic self absorbed dev team got us here.

 

I still have my posters:  Number of the beast, Piece of Mind, Aces High.  I used to have the full door height Stranger in a Strange land cyber Eddie, but haven't come across that in decades...

:D Glad everyone is enjoying the cool tie-in we have going with Iron Maiden!

 

There will be more cool IM things to come in the very near future, so keep an eye out for further features.

 

And, yes, this is the partnership I was discussing last week!
