No Red Baroness?
I wonder how come there isn't a female version of Manfred Von Richtofen ("the Red Baron") during the First Neuroi War? There's an Immelman and Boelke, but no Richtofen?

Just to be safe, I am posting here the Japanese text about the Operation Bifrost that I found. It seems that it is originally from one of the Booklets.
Erica is wearing something that vaguely looks like an SS-uniform or perhaps a Wehrmacht Panzer uniform, as the Panzertruppe wore all black, like SS did.
Gertrud is wearing something that vaguely looks like the classic gray Wehrmacht-uniform.
Minna is wearing something that doesn't look anything like any German uniform I've ever seen, as to my knowledge none of the German armed forces used dark green coloured uniforms.
Has there ever been any official confirmation on this? None of them wear Luftwaffe blue, which you would expect them to wear. Some Luftwaffe pilots wore the grey Wehrmacht uniforms on occasion and the Fallshirmjäger wore their own uniforms, styled after Wehrmacht uniforms, before starting to use camouflage uniforms in '42 or so. Her uniform actually looks more like what a VVS-pilot would wear - Orussian.
In any case, the final paragraph is thus wrong but I wanted to bring this up on the talk page first, in case I've missed something and am horribly wrong22.214.171.124 20:30, November 19, 2012 (UTC)
Ignore me, I just realized that Minna is wearing the Luftwaffe jump suit shirt.126.96.36.199 20:34, November 19, 2012 (UTC)
I think Erica is wearing a black leather jacket. I thought I saw one in the WWI movie Blue Max. Maybe the Germans/Karlslanders wore them in World War 2/ Second Neuroi War.

iirc erica is wearing a leather jacket, as is marseille. ursula wears the same bluse as erica but with a lab coat instead of the jacket. Waltrud is presumably wearing a lufwaffe blue uniform. --Snugglemuffins (SW talk) (SG talk) irc.rizon.net#aliveandwell 04:37, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
Counterparts of real-world religions
Are there counterparts of the Abrahamitic and other religions in this world or was that simply not addressed (best way to avoid controversy around religion is to never mention religion)--Boris Baran (talk) 09:07, February 27, 2019 (UTC)
As it seems to appear the Abrahamic religions do in actuality seem to exist in the Strike Witches world.... that being said however, said religions are not the same as we would know them in our world, as well as not being the only religions on the block. Due to a lot of evidence we see and can glean from various source matrial, from the existance of an Orussian Othodox church with minimal to no iconography (Brave Witches), a Rommangan solider wearing a Christian Cross (Witches of the Sphinx), Egyption women wearing various types of Arabic garments and clothing of their choosing (Witches of the Sphinx), the outline of the European nations borders, and the flags for some nations having a modified verion of the Nordic Cross are some of the strong indicators. That being said, aside from the witches themselves not only existing and wearing eponimous witch style attire and how underware and swimsuits are modern in their style compaired to our 1940's and the apparently progressive and more liberated attitudes that seem to pervade regaurding bodies and sex and sexual oritention; it appears that the Abrehamic religions are less puritanical, less dogmatic, less conservitive and less militeristic than our worlds versions of said religions... at to some varied, arbitrary degree depending on the specific Abrehamic faith. That being said the aformentioned Abrehamic relgions may be anti-Neruoi to some degree between them. It also seems likely that the Abrehamic religons seem to share space rather genialy with various pagan and non-abrehamic religions. Existance of Common Wealth of India means that Hinduism is highly likely to exist in some form, and it goes without saying that Fuso has Buddhism and Shintoism. Romanga and Greece likely have Hellenism/Olympianism still kicking aboutgiving some of the impications gleaned from the broad culture and even flags of the nations, and Egypt likely still has it's Ancient reliigion around in some form alongside a strong Islamic/Muslim Majority and Christian minority. That being said, these details are mostly subtle and are not exactly the main focus of the series, so it's likely they are downplayed for the most part.-- Briano The Liberator (talk) 02:06, June 23, 2019
