* On a meta level, something that would go in the YMMV or trivia pages (a case of the author making a science mistake when explaining something instead of just {{Handwaving}} the issue) goes straight to the FunnyMoments page. Why? Because it's a matter of getting a science fact wrong in the middle of accurate military tech trivia, ''[[HilariousInHindsight right after]] the author {{lampshade}}s the cliche of Generals being good at military stuff but bad at science''.

It ''may'' be a fail of researh, or it ''may'' be a deliberate lampshading. Don't caring about which one here: it is hilarious either way.

* The absolute anticlimax that is the first angel kill in the story. The story goes all-out in showing what a badass Appoloin is, tossing Memnon like a ragdoll and making a BadassBoast that sends the demon fleeing for his life. Then he sees Stevenson letting the '[[GagBoobs girls]]' out after being stuck in a tank all day and approaches, calmly telling her to cover herself. Those are his final words before being blasted by a tank shell and torn up by a 25mm machine gun. Even the tank crew's reaction is just kind of "Huh, so this is an angel. Eh, we were coming to kill them too, so whatever."
