In the Balkans rocket base, pasted on the door of a badly scorched airplane hangar at the airfield, there is a note warning air crews about cooking coffee in the fuel destillers, as this can cause explosions. The note is written by a major Vorsichtig, german for "Careful".

Throughout the game, there are plenty of strange rocket planes, jet planes and flying wings. Although most of these are just fiction, (at least) two are actual WWII German designs:
  • The Ba317 "Cobra", used in B.J. Blazkowicz' escape from the Balkan rocket base and general "Deathshead"'s escape from the X-labs in Norway, is actually the Bachem Ba349 "Natter". The only difference is the lack of external booster rockets. However, throughout the game you see posters with the blueprints for the Cobra, and the booster rockets are shown attached. Also, "Natter" is German for "adder", not far from "Cobra".
  • The odd jet plane being produced in the bombed out factory in Kugelstadt, is actually a Heinkel He162 "Salamander".
