* CoolBoat: HMS Llamrei (formerly TP-2112), a Q-Ship 1st Class, is incredibly cool. It has booze in it, you can sleep in it, it's owned by the SOE, and it's basically a clandestine aircraft carrier. Basically, it's an important fucking boat.

* AnOfficerAndAGentleman: Talbot - itís small surprise that various young women take up important roles in his life. Vegesack in a more elderly form, as he drops womanizing as a feature of his declining youth; instead however, he manages to blurb out a rather complicated and articulate vocabulary, even during stress of combat.



** Geoffrey Talbot is also the name of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Talbot a medieval English knight]], and as well as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talbot an automobile brand]] on par with the character's auto racing career. Meanwhile, in a rather amusing homage to the characterís [[OfficerAndAGentleman personality]], the surname Talbot is also the title of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talbots a retailer of womenís clothing]].

* FragileSpeedster: The German HE 100s seen in Operation Guillotine fit this trope. They're monstrously fast, but can barely turn, and aren't particularly heavily armored.
** This is purely extrapolation on the part of the author. There is remarkably little firsthand information on the combat performance of the Heinkel HE 100/112/133, due to a combination of factors. These include the extremely small numbers in which they were deployed, their role in a German misinformation scheme to deliberately exaggerate their numbers and capabilities, none actually surviving the war to test these capabilities, and finally, the destruction of the Heinkel factory carrying most (if not all) of their production documentation. As a result, the author based his characterization of its abilities on what little there is known of it, and exaggerated it a little for dramatic purpose.
