* Sokolov says that the Shagohod uses rockets based on the ones that propelled the Vostok spacecraft and Yuri Gagarin into space. However, these so-called rockets have what is clearly the compressor intake of a turbojet engine at the front. So are they rockets or turbojets?

Added DiffLines:

** If you look at Naked Snake's character model, you'll notice a canteen among his equipment so presumably he drinks from that during his mission, but the need to drink is abstracted away in a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation. He probably refills it whenever he gets a chance, e.g. the times when he rests with EVA, and presumably also when travelling through running water. There's no indication he eats his instant noodles dry either, given how delicious they're said to be and how much fuss is made over the novelty of instant noodles, so he must use water to cook them, therefore he must be carrying water at all times since you can eat the noodles whenever you like.

*Snake finds plenty of things to eat during the mission which is all well and good but at no point is he shown having anything to drink plus itís never established if any of the bodies of water he passes on his travels are drinkable. Thing is, although their would be plenty liquid in the animals and noodles etc that he eats, he would surely need plenty water in order to avoid becoming dehydrated. Just how does he get enough drinkable water to survive throughout the game?

* And if we mention that, it's either more or less sad that it seems that the death of the Boss was actually unnecessary; maybe a couple of dozen people actually know that she exists, and it's not like her body was ever recovered (or, presumably, needed for proof), since the Migs napalmed it into oblivion. Speaking of which, I need to go edit the Wild Mass Guessing for MGS.

** That is what the [MiG] fighter jets The Boss radioed in were for. Remember that The Boss told Snake that there was a 10 minute time limit to defeat her or jets were going to release bombs over their position and kill them both. If you actually let the 10 minute timer run its course then you are treated to a game over cutscene where Snake and The Boss are killed by the bombs, with The Boss closing her eyes accepting her coming death. Naturally she would prefer that Snake killed her and that her beloved pupil survived but the jets were there as a contingency plan if he failed.

** I'm guessing the Migs were to ensure that they'd both die if needs be. The Russians would inspect their corpses, be able to confirm Snake's identity, conclude that they fought to the death when the Migs attacked in retaliation to Snake nuking Groznyj Grad. The main loss here would be an end to The Boss' memes and the Legacy. Fortunately, or, I suppose unfortunately, given what happens later, Snake won and survived.

*** But if you leave it (say, you have an inventory full of non-perishable stuff alreddy and just wanted MK22 suppressors/ammo), then let them wake up, they run over to it and excitedly eat it.

**Because Volgin is a horrible person who probably wouldn't think of that- even if he did, he is probably well known for his power and cruelty, so it's unlikely he could get a following that way. Even if he could, would he make good on his promise? Likely not, would earn him his own coup down the line. Hence, he takes a more explosive route.

* What exactly made The Fury so special as to be in the Cobra Unit? Rocket fuel flamethrower, jetpack that also runs on rocket fuel, space suit, insanity. He wouldn't have had any of these things (except for insanity, but he probably wasn't as crazy before and he is now) until AFTER he went into space, which was after WW2. And if you take away his equipment, he'd just be a regular soldier. He may be tougher than the standard soldier, and he probably specialized in regular flamethrowers back then. We could argue that maybe before the space gimmick, he was a BadassNormal like The Boss, maybe even almost as good at the whole all around thing, but then that'd play more of a role in his character. So what would have set him apart from the average flamethrower wielding soldier of WW2?

* How did the Boss do to not only be part of the army, but to lead an unit in WW2, when she was a woman ? And more importantly, how did she do to participate in D-Day while pregnant ?

*** If its any consolation as well, you can get a [[MoreDakka M63]] after you break out, unless you took a detour a few hours ago to Syvatogornyj East and picked it up there. There should be one in an small armory just north of the manhole entrance to the sewers in Groznyj Grad.
