So I managed to get "The Giant" Pack-a-Punch Camo texture. (It's only a 256x256 image though)

 

On it you can see ~

  • The Iron Cross
  • Nucleus symbol
  • Roman Numerals that = 9 3 5
  • A Crazy Monkey Bomb Head

This confirms this quote:

"Perhaps we ourselves created this device on one of our previous yourney"

-Either Dempsey or Takio.(couldnt find this one online for some reason other one pulled straight from the wiki)

And lets put this right under

"This machine was created by a good man. A blacksmith in the old west."

— Richtofen When Pack-a-Punching

you know because of the 935 thing

 

 

Also i just noticed the ace of spades in the corners

THen i looked up the origin on wikipedia.org (not the wiki i reffered to above obviously)

War[edit]

File:OperationBaker1967Vietcongaceofspades.ogg
 
US Army footage from 'Operation Baker' 1967 showing US troops putting Ace of Spades in the mouths of dead VietCong/NLF (can be seen 1:53 min:sec & 2:34 min:sec into the video footage)

The ace of spades has been employed, on numerous occasions, in the theater of war. In the Second World War, the soldiers of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the American 101st Airborne Division were marked with the spades symbol painted on the sides of their helmets. In this capacity, it was used to represent good luck, due to its fortunate connotations in card playing. All four card suits were used for ease of identification of regiments within the airborne division following the confusion of a large scale combat airborne operation. Battalions within the regiments were denoted with tic marks or dots, marked from top clockwise: headquarters at the twelve o'clock position, 1st Battalion at the three o'clock, etc.

Some twenty years later, the ace of spades was again used by American soldiers—this time as a psychological weapon in the Vietnam War. US troops believed that Vietnamese traditions held the symbolism of the spade to mean death and ill-fortune, and in a bid to scare away Viet Cong soldiers without a firefight, it was common practice to leave an ace of spades on the bodies of killed Vietnamese and even to litter the forested grounds and fields with the card. This custom was believed to be so effective that the United States Playing Card Company was asked by Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment to supply crates of that single card in bulk. The crates were often marked with "Bicycle Secret Weapon".[8]

The ace of spades, while not a symbol of superstitious fear to the Viet Cong forces, did help the morale of American soldiers. It was not unheard of for US soldiers and Marines to stick this card in their helmet band as a sort of anti-peace sign.

More recently, in 2003 a deck of most-wanted Iraqi playing cards was issued to US soldiers during Operation Iraqi Freedom, each card had the picture of a wanted Iraqi official on it. Saddam Hussein got the nickname "Ace of Spades" as that card bore his image.

 

If you'd like to read more there is a website int 1995 html layout talking about it so it must be good(pulled from wikipedia.org sources)

I would say the images in the corner look more like a fluer de lis, which represents a lily flower, but was used for anything from war insignias, to religious symbolism.

Also, I'm not seeing a warped monkey bomb head. That thing looks like a demon, with long sharp teeth. My guess is this could just be a early concept of a keeper, or something from their realm.
