A few post-war planes are referenced as well. M'Quve's second in command, Uragang, is named for the Dassault Ouragan, first fielded in the early years of the ArabIsraeliConflict.

* In ''Literature/CaptainFrenchOrTheQuestForParadise'', it's not uncommon for people on Solaris to be named after 20th century cars, such as Dodson '''Chrysler''' Sarmishkidu and '''Benz Fiat''' Shalmunazar. A bit strange, considering the events take place 20,000 years from now.

* One of the members of the Kamikaze team in ''Film/DodgeballATrueUnderdogStory'' is named Suzuki Toyota Oshinawa. Presumably, given how Japanese names work, it's probably not his birth name.
