Trivia[]

  • Heinz (in place of Hans) is obviously taken from the ketchup/beans manufacturer of the same name, while Faust was a German who sold his soul to the Devil for knowledge.
    • Faust is also the German word for "Fist". One well-known use is the "Panzerfaust", a German anti-tank rocket launcher used in WW2, which can be translated as "Armored Fist".
  • Stuka comes from "Sturzkampfflugzeug", meaning "dive bomber". Yes, the Stuka was a German WW2 fighter bomber! The particular model Heinz flies - er, drives - is a 1937 Junkers Ju-87.
    • The Stuka divebomber is tied closely together with tanks (panzers) through blitzkrieg tactics, where ground attack aircraft closely supported the attacking tanks.
  • In TDR 2000, the King Merc appears as a new model, driven by Hans Kristoff Havocstein.
  • The original Carmageddon's King Merc was apparently based on a fourth generation Mercedes-Benz SL, despite having SLK rear lights and a body similar to a W140 coupe.
  • Judging by the mug shots, Heinz picked up some scars during the first Carmageddon.
    • His scarred eye is now glazed in Reincarnation.
  • Heinz's scarred eye

    Heinz Faust wears a German uniform and drives a German car which he converted into a tank.
    • Heinz Guderian was a German general and famous commander of great panzer divisions during WW2. In the last year of the war he became Chief of the General Staff of the Heer.
    • Additionally Heinz Guderian was one of the key figures in developing the Blitzkrieg tactics in the interwar period, as well as giving guidelines for the panzer development before the WW2.
  • The number "four" on his tank means "vier" in German which is exactly pronounced like the word "fear".
  • The Reincarnation design for Heinz includes rollerboots with tank tracks... it's been done.

  • The Blitzkrieger is very closely based on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
