"Kiss my kupecheskaya, Chikatilo."

--It's not as dirty as Daina makes it sound.

Other notes

Errors

  • The gunner of the plain H.I.S.S. tells the driver of a H.I.S.S. IV that his tank is more advanced. The gunner in the H.I.S.S. II claims he's the most advanced.

Items of note

  • First appearance: Col. Bin Ismael, Dr. Eleanor Chen
  • Pretty much every version of the H.I.S.S. Tank appears in this issue.

Real-world references

  • Steeler references Raiders of the Lost Ark.
  • Ilya Muromets is a Russian epic hero (like Beowulf is in the west), and a bylina is an epic poem.
  • Kupecheskaya (Купеческая) directly translates as "merchant," but in this case it refers to Kasha Kupecheskaya, a traditional Russian buckwheat dish. In other words, Daina is paraphrasing Flo's catchphrase from Alice, "kiss my grits!"
