"Enuff dakka" is a particle of the phrase "Der iz not enuff dakka", where dakka stands for firepower.
Usually it's a phrase used by the mercenary group called "Greenskins".

A huge prewar tank, fitted with enough guns and firepower to gut a Galleon in one shot from it's main cannon, and as tall as 5 men standing on top of one another.  The most famous is The Fortress of Arrogance, a black beast of a machine dwelling deep within Anglea, being worked on day and night.

Angleans always loved heavy armours and mechanised infantry.
The dreadnaught is the combination of the two, permitting a single soldier to be as dangerous and as durable as a tank, while also giving them a more than decent amount of mobility.
The earlier prototypes were called jokingly by the engineering crews "Killer cans".

A meteorological event that mixes the vast arashi desert land with occasional water.
Being large chunks of the desert made by impermeable sand, the water and the sand don't mix, creating this mirage-like event, with water and sand coexisting.

Anglea is a very cold and harsh place, if you get really badly hurt there, you are most likely to die, slowly and painfully.
Killing a persone in such a miserable state is considered acceptable, as you are saving them from an otherwise slow and painful death.
To grant such a death to opponents or prsioners with death sentence is seen as a honorful, rightful and compassionate act.
So, executing ''An Anglean Coup De Grace'' is to grant a person a quick and painless death, to save them from agony.

A snide remark often used by Yeshans, implicating weakness.  The same remark is used by Angleans to refer to the innovative technology of Chaladon, as they are the only other faction with high technology.

Due to the frequency in which Angleans tread through, oil, grease, blood, mud, and various other fluids, the phrase has been used to mean a thing is so filthy, that it is liable to cause a serious infection.  Angleans, by the way, are fond of stomping on their opponents.
