Trivia

3D Studio Max

On December 20, 1999, Red Storm released a 3D Studio Max plug-in for Rogue Spear, giving more modding power to users.

German version

In the German version, all blood effects were removed and killed enemies disappear almost instantly. All corpses which can be found during the missions were removed.

Title

"Rogue Spear" is said to be the US Military name for theft of a nuclear device, but such name does not exist, as it was coined by Tom Clancy himself.

According to the story, the proper term is "PINNACLE EMPTY QUIVER", which stands for "seizure, theft, or loss of a nuclear weapon or nuclear component".
