in one of the facts of the day you mentioned that many of the amestrian military characters were named after real life military related things. i was wondering which ones those were?
Pretty much all of them, actually. I can’t give you specifics as I’ve never been able to find any sources for them (And no, the wiki is not a source), but they definitely all share names with at least one military aircraft or vehicle. In the Q&A omake in volume 15, Arakawa says, “For the military characters, I usually take names from the manufacturers of fighter planes.”
