The end result, of course, was the Reticulan Burger. Heh.

On Topic: ... Though in the case of the BETAs I don't think it's viable. Hmm, come to think of it, in the aftermath of the Kyoto defense, there's a suspicious lack of BETA corpses lying around compared to the sheer amount of human dead (as shown by the mass graves and bodybags).
I remember there was a dead Fort class shown, but not dead tanks or destroyer class. Put it down to poor scripting of the show or insufficient funds that more was not shown.

There might be a reference to eating BETA, check out the Gen thread

Why wouldn't they be? They're carbon based, after all.

Hmm, lesse:

Destroyer: Taste like chicken
Grappler: Crab + chicken. Best part is the claw, assuming you can pry it open
Soldier: You'd rather not eat these...
Laser Class: some people love them, similar to blowfish they produce light tingling on the tongue but prepared incorrectly and they can melt you stomach from the inside

I guess you will have an enlightening experience then...

Don't forget to get rid of depleted uranium fragments spices from the body first though.

There was a joke in "Schwarzesmarken":

{{ By the way, Walter, you know that joke?}}Irisdine spoke in a level tone, as if she hadn't noticed the enemy at all and was asking about the weather.
{{ Which one?}}
{{ Someone sends a question to the Berlin radio: are the BETA edible at all?}}
{{ ...And?}}
{{ They answer: of course not. Unless you're British.}}
Several muffled laughs could be heard in the comms. The dreadfulness of the rations distributed to the British army, stationed in the DDR under UN command, was legendary even among East German personnel, and Walter chuckled appreciatively:
{{ Yes, and there's so many of them here... we should export them to the islanders, they'd probably thank us.}}
{{ Right, - so first, let's turn those over there into paste.}}

Ironically British rations are supposed to be among the better-tasting rations in the world; there are anecdotes of brisk barter trade between UK and US forces for MREs during Desert Shield.

Supposedly now US MREs taste better than everyone else, so i hear.

And?

That has no bearing whatsoever on the story.

Eroge are not made with the intention to sell toys considering that the toys came later

Of course they must all be hot blooded, cook in TSFs, and hunt for their ingrediants.

The alternative history of your nation includes enhanced levels of badassery, apparently. For specifics, of course, you'll want to ask that question in the thread Muv-Luv Franchise: Military Tactics, History, & Geo-Politics .
