Default The Tau's air caste operates the same way as the Rebellion in Star Wars??

I found this out awhile ago, but in the 3rd level of Fire Warrior, going up the spiral staircase before you have to set charges to the anti-aircraft turrets, you can hear a Tau pilot saying "This is red-5, standing by" I was like: omg... first they take the AT-ST design for sentinels and now this? :O then I lol'd

I'm sure that the rebellion in star wars uses a very standard way of communication.

This helps with clarity. Imagine:

"Okay! Guy on my left we you have a enemy behind and under you!"
or
"Red 2! Bogey at 6 and under!"

Or you can say it the modern military way: (callsign), bogey on ya tail, or (callsign) bogey at 6 o'clock low,

Its even possible Red-5 was an homage to Star Wars...

Possible it's a homage to Star wars. Could also just be because thats how the military divides squadrons. You usually get a colour for each squadron and a number for each pilot in the squadron. So red 5 would be the fifth pilot of red squadron.

I was guessing it was a homage, an awsome one too.

But what was he doing in the game? Firing his barracuda's missile pods into an exhaust port?

No, he just says that he can't land until you take out the anti-aircraft guns.

That was a joke about star wars - the whole missiles down the vent from "Red 5"?
