Among other things, they attempt to retcon the pantslessness. One explanation: the Strike Witches can't wear pants because they get in the way of wearing the Striker Units. And the Strike Witches have become famous and are idolized by girls all over the world, who have started imitating the pantslessness. I don't buy it, but it's a nice try.
A different observation: they pointed out that the story in Strike Witches is pretty much a replay of the Battle of Britain. I should have realized that; as soon as I read it I kicked myself.
UPDATE: I did not know about this:
Despite being a show about 13-20 year old girls in panties fighting an evil alien threat, many WWII references were made in both moefied and non moefied ways. The example of Erica Hartmann stealing panties was Hitler's hat being taken by Ace Pilot Eric Hartmann.
Still, I like yours much better and they should concede and replace "Refuge in Audacity" immediately. Never let pride stand in the way of making things better.

I actually proposed that very thing back in July. I'm not sure if I should be proud or ashamed that I put that much thought into it.
