Armed Assault contains quite a few visual puns, jokes and inside information. As these are often visible out in the open, they may or may not live up to a narrow definition of Easter eggs as hidden information visible only when triggered by the player. In general, the former type of inside jokes can be subsumed under the category of intertextual references, or simply strange or funny sightings. This is by no means an exhaustive list, feel free to expand it.
