- The term "bandog" is rarely used in modern English and was once used to refer to a bailiff or a prison guard. This matches with the depiction of the 444th Air Base as a prison.
- Unlike other AWACS units in the series, Bandog seems to have very little respect for the player squadron, directly insulting and scorning them on multiple occasions, calling them "bastards," "cowards," and to Spare 15, even "dumbass". He doesn't even seem to be very concerned with the squadron's safety when they enter hazardous weather in Yinshi Valley. This is natural, as Spare Squadron is comprised entirely of felons.
