The country once provided air support to a secret US mission involving Steve Austin. After landing in Nairobi, he was taken to the Kenya-Mgunda border. From there, he flew to a location inside Mgunda. The Mgundan military then air-lifted Steve across the Mgundan-Kataran frontier, after which he parachuted into Katara. (Little Orphan Airplane)
- Captain Braco - Mgunda Air Force
- Mgunda's military assistance to the US is curious in light of a treaty between the major powers which foreswore the major powers from getting involved in squabbles between "new African nations". It may suggest that either Mgunda is not so "new", or that the US was playing situationally loose with the treaty.
- The nation may be an analogue for Tanzania, the real-life nation across Kenya's southern frontier. Like Katara, Mgunda is a relatively rare example of a wholly fictional country on The Six Million Dollar Man.
- In the subtitles of the DVD for this episode, Mgunda is spelled with a "y" as Mygunda.
