* GratuitousSpanish: Cayman Global dropships are called "Rapiñas", as in RapePillageAndBurn[[note]]Lit. Spanish for rapine.[[/note]]. Considering Cayman's idea of "covert extraction" involves sending an Agent and a small army of troops to shoot up a skyscraper in the middle of Manhattan, all to kidnap ''one'' [=EuroCorp=] "soft asset", it's an [[MeaningfulName appropriate name]].
