** Main protagonist and [[TheLeader leader]] of the titular BadassArmy, Robert John Page has a namesake that is a composite reference on behalf of the musical tastes of his creator; Page shares the first, middle, and last names of ''Robert'' Plant, ''[[OneSteveLimit Johns']]'' Jones and Bonham, and Jimmy ''Page'' - the members of the famous rock band Led Zeppelin.

** “Douglas Stanford” is the product of combining the first and middle names of two period RAF fighter aces: ''Douglas'' Bader and Robert ''Stanford'' Tuck.

** Geoffrey Talbot is also the name of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Talbot a medieval English knight]], while "Talbot" is the name of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talbot an automobile brand]], on par with the character's auto racing career. Additionally, in a rather amusing homage to the character’s [[OfficerAndAGentleman personality]], the Talbot name is also shared with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talbots a chain of women’s clothing stores]].

** Charles Fodder shares the name of a character from ''Clear Skies'', a machinima series based on the sci-fi adventure game ''EVE Online''. Additionally, if one abbreviates his first name, the result is C(annon).Fodder.

** Commander Smollett's surname is taken from Captain Abraham Smollett, of the Robert Louis Stevenson novel Treasure Island.

** Perhaps one of the most odd examples: [[AlliterativeName Sebastian S. Smyth]] is also name of [[http://glee.wikia.com/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe the homosexual villain]] of the musical TV series ''Glee'' after its second season. His creator maintains that this is unintentional, but the jury is still out.

** Carter's [[NamesTheSame name is the same]] with Larry Hovis's character in the World War II comedy series ''Hogans Heroes''; [[http://hh.wikia.com/wiki/Andrew_Carter Technical Sergeant Andrew Carter]], and with [[http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/cartean01.shtml a pitcher]] of a much-loved baseball team of his writer, the Philadelphia Phillies.

** Operation Lancer, which takes place at the start of the war in Poland, is a reference to the popularly known aspect of World War II that elite Polish cavalry undertook futile charges in defiance of German tanks. The reality was actually a half-truth with a dose of misinterpretation; a Polish horseback regiment actually did launch a charge in the opening shots of the war, but against a battalion or so of German infantry instead, not a full on armored unit. Despite suffering losses, the Poles came to be successful in driving their dismounted opponents from the field, but were eventually forced to withdraw as the odds came against them. In the aftermath of the battle, a German panzer division swept the area to secure it, bringing platoons of international journalists and reporters along with it. Seeing the corpses of cavalrymen strewn across the field now marked with tank and vehicle tracks, they misinterpreted the sight as the result of courageous but futile Polish defiance against the industrial war machine of the Third Reich - and thus the popular mythos was born.

** Operation Falkland is an overt waving of the operation's Atlantic South American setting, with the British controlled Falkland Islands being in the geographic proximity of the hunt for the German warship Graf Spee.

** The creator's reasoning for this title (which he has gone on record as regretting) was actually pinned on a reference to the Battle of the Falklands in World War One, where the forces of Admiral Graf von Spee were annihilated by the battlecruiser squadron of Admiral Frederick Sturdee. The author, in reflection, thinks that the name of one of the battlecruisers present (Inflexible) would have been a much better name for the operation.

** Operation Guillotine plays this straight with the setting of the mission being turmoil spilt France under German invasion in mid 1940. An interpretation of the title taken [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] can have the squadron being sent in as the French government is decapitated once again in history, but at the hands of a foreign military than its own people.

** Operation Mordred bears the name of the Arthurian character whom betrays Arthur and dies fighting him at the Battle of Camlann. The role-play itself takes place at the height of the Battle of Britain on British soil, with 319's home base at RAF Tempsford under assault by elite German special operations raiders led by none other than Major Konrad.

** Operation Cambyses shares the namesake of the great Persian emperor who expanded his empire into the role-play's primary setting of Egypt and southern North Africa.

** Operation Taurus can sprout many interpretations over the intent of its name due to the fact that the astrological symbol of the bull can mean different things. First off, the physical constellation of Taurus is one of the largest and most prominent in the winter skies of the northern hemisphere, with the annual Taurid meteor shower radiating from the general direction of the constellation in late November - the timeframe of the operation.

** Secondly, the constellation Taurus has strangely come to be accepted as closely associated with various romance and fertility goddesses despite gaps in time and culture; to the Mesopotamians, the Bull of Heaven was linked with Innana, to the Greeks, it was Venus. Here's where things can get a little weird: In the Mesopotamian ''Epic of Gilgamesh'', one of the earliest works of literature, the goddess Ishtar sends Taurus, the Bull of Heaven, to kill Gilgamesh for spurning her advances - one can interpret this as a rather darkly humored joke regarding the strained relationship between Page and Isabelle.

** A much more serious theme could be seen in the ancient Egyptian Taurus, which was associated with the renewal of life and fertility in spring. This was because when the spring equinox entered Taurus, the constellation would become covered by the Sun in the western sky as the season began; thus, one can interpret the use of Taurus in the sense that the squadron, or more specifically, its commander Page, will plunge into a dark winter in its history to be reborn in the spring - which can easily correlate with the latter's captivity in German hands and ultimate rescue weeks later.

** It should be noted that Operation Taurus was also the name of a planned prosecution by the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), the British police force in Northern Ireland from 1922-2001, against the Sinn Féin (Irish republican) politician Martin McGuinness.

** The creator later revealed, somewhat flattered by the level of analysis demonstrated here and embarrassed by the relative simplicity of his actual reasoning, that the actual line of logic that led to the name was "Spain -> bullfighting -> bulls -> Taurus". There's also some underlying relation to the metaphor of a bullfight to the actual outcome of the operation, with Excalibur being the bull and the SS force the matador. Hes comfortable with any of the other interpretations, however.

** Operation Highwire's decisive meaning can be deciphered simply by glancing at a dictionary: a high wire is a tightrope that is stretched very high above the ground, referencing the climatic hijacking scene in which Noble leads the squadron in breaching the German transport plane carrying their captive comrades mid-air using grappling lines shot from harpoons. It also is a metaphor for a risky job, undertaking, or operation.

** Operation Southern Cross draws its name from the constellation of stars known as the "Crux". This constellation is easily visible from the Southern Hemisphere and it's distinctive shape earns it the commonly used nickname "The Southern Cross". The Southern Cross is most usually associated with Australia, New Zealand and Brazil (appearing on all three national flags) but it also can be associated with South Africa (the host nation for OPERATION: SOUTHERN CROSS) and it's people, particularly the Afrikaans. There is also a small town, located in the Western Cape of South Africa called "Suiderkruis", which, in English, translates to "Southern Cross". [[spoiler:Its also meaningful because Excalibur gets betrayed (i.e., crossed) during the operation.]]

** Finally, Excalibur Squadron itself. The name refers naturally to the sword of Arthurian legend, but less known is that Excalibur is the (semi-)official symbol of the [[BritsWithBattleships United Kingdom Special Forces]]. The [[http://www.martinfrost.ws/htmlfiles/sas_badge.gif Special Air Service ]] cap badge is a 'downward pointing Excalibur, wreathed in flames (often incorrectly referred to as a winged dagger)' worn with a Sand beret. The [[http://www.loeser.us/flags/images/england/special_boat_service.gif Special Boat Service]] Cap badge is an upward pointing Excalibur superimposed over waves and oriented with the motto to appear as if it is an anchor, worn with a Commando Green beret. The [[http://www.militaryimages.net/photopost/data/563/SRRCapbadge_800x594.jpg Special Reconaissance Regiment]] Cap badge is an upward-pointing Excalibur with a corinthian helmet superimposed over it and the word 'Reconnaissance', this is worn with an Emerald Grey beret. Finally, the [[http://www.eliteukforces.info/images/sfsg/insignia.gif Special Forces Support Group]] Cap badge is a downward-pointing Excalibur with a red and black lightning bolt superimposed over it, worn with a Maroon (P-Company trained) or Commando Green (Commando trained) beret.

* ShellshockedVeteran: The whole squadron will inevitably become this, however the process had speeded up regarding Page, Talbot, Pat, and Michael after their brutal ordeals as prisoners of war. Noble grows from an uptight intelligence officer to an active field agent, engaging in the same brutal violence as her male comrades. Talbot does so after a personally insisted reconnaissance wrong ends up killing his copilot, whilst Page, Vegesack, and Carter both do so during the Spanish Civil War. In the case of the latter, the Second Sino-Japanese War ends up making him so.

* BritishAccents: Plenty, also including Scottish and Irish variants accents, with one of the most pronounced being Smythe's 'almost unbelievable' Received Pronunciation.
* BritsWithBattleships: 319 Squadron operates under RAF jurisdiction - it's a British military unit. Thus, a large number of its personnel, including its commander will be . . . That should be enough.



* {{Paris}}: The setting of the final showdown of Operation Guillotine: Excalibur is forced to evacuate the city during the very hour that German forces enter it on 14 June, 1940. A fun fact: the city's distinctive ". . . wide boulevards also had the rather unfortunate effect of leaving the city wide open to attacking armies - including [German] tanks - who could use the wide boulevard to march right to the heart of the city."
