* CanonImmigrant: The entirety of this game's campaign could be argued as being canon after the Loren L. Coleman novel, ''Trial Under Fire'' was published, using the ''Pirate's Moon'' names of Connor Sinclair for the protagonist and Thomas Sorenson for the MFB intelligence officer.

* TargetSpotter: C3 Computers in [=MW LL=] relay radar data to all allies within 1 kilometer, which is necessary for the [[DeathFromAbove Long Tom Artillery tank]] to get enough data for accurate firing, as its radar only extends to 1250m (less against enemies with ECM or passive radar), while the Long Tom cannon can smite enemies up to around 1800m. C3 computers can also be linked together in "chains", so long as they stay within 1 kilometer of each other, allowing for much further detection. The Target Acquisition Gear laser is a line-of-sight laser which guides friendly missiles, particularly useful for the Arrow IV artillery missile, which has a max range of about 3500 meters but can only achieve lock-on within 1500m, and TAG locks give no missile lock-on warnings to its hapless target - and TAG lasers are invisible to the visible spectrum . NARC missiles have the same function, but are fire-and-forget (at the cost of being detectable and giving missile warnings) - peg an enemy with it, and watch in amazement as [[MacrossMissileMassacre every friendly missile within 1000 meters]] homes in on the poor bastard.
