When I saw this, I thought a Rivet Joint had a bad day.

Don't ruin my pedantic posting with pesky facts.

I had a similar thought, but not Rivet Joint as those are RC-135V/W's and all 12 1/2 versions of the Boeing EC-135 have long been retired.

Don’t forget the Looking Glass mission. It did that for years.

I think there's some French influence here and there (like the Finnestron), but the single-biggest influence I've noticed is the AFM, which was written in German, converted to French, and then translated to English. I'm convinced that's why you "Vent" the engines instead of motor them. Crazy Frogs.
You sure they don’t mean the engines “vent” that way and ze rotors “vent” another?
