Modern tanks are used, but used in actual military work rather than Senshado.

Also, a character named Katyusha?

You know, after Strike Witches, Sky Girls... Moe National Socialism, something like this was obviously going to follow suit. The difference? It doesn't take itself too seriously, which is a very good thing.

And finding out the entire community exist on top of a carrier deck was a pleasant surprise indeed.

I like how the Pz.Kpfw. IV is used as the main crew's vehicle. It was the workhorse of the German army, a very stable, versatile and customizable unit. I wonder if we will get to see other armament options later in the series. Hell, I wonder if the Tiger would become a mid-season upgrade

Dunno. I used Google translate to translated their names, so perhaps there're several spelling errors everywhere, can't help it.

In my defence, the AMX-13 was designed late in the war, and only shipped in early 1950s.

It's more likely to be the final boss actually, given that it's used by Nishizumi Maho and her crew.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with the name though, as Katyusha is a legitimate Russian name. it's just incredibly rare in anime.

While we are comparing this series to World Of Tanks, let's not take the comparisons too far shall we? For instance, we don't have prototype tanks running around.

Sure the AMX-13 appears in the manga as a background explanation example, but until tanks of that era actually appear jumping the gun wouldn't be wise.

I think it's more a reference to the "Katyusha" multiple rocket launchers that the Soviets first developed in WWII. That would tie in with all the WWII equipment we've seen in the show up till now.

I'll stick to "Watashi no ai wa HOTCHKISS" then.

Somehow, Everyday Katyusha seems more appropriate now.

*Goose is shot by OCT snipers*

Sorry, wrong Katyusha. Ironically, in the original russian, Katyusha is the equivalent of "Katie", and the diminuitive form of "Yeketarina" (Catherine).

Also, given some discussion on another board I frequent, it seems that Captain Ami's little stunt with the Type-10 might just be possible afterall; the M1, which at 70 tons grossly outweighs the 48 ton Type-10, was tested for airdropping, and LAPES has been proven to work with the M551 Sheridan and M8 Buford, so all things considered, it probably is possible to do that stunt IRL. Not practical at all for the battlefield... but certainly doable to make an attention-grabbing entrance.

The senselessness of this anime is getting to me... I dreamed of them riding through the Iraqi desert with the volleyball team blasting Diamond Eyes from a 1980s boombox.

Miho was using one in the past (or so the flashbacks show), so I'd think that Miho's crew will be using one at some point later on against a stronger opponent.

Spoiler for Manga:


Also, just when you thought Garupan (seems that's the shortcut for it now) couldn't get any crazier, they give you this:

Spoiler for Episode 3:

Heh Although the vehicle that stands out the most is the pink M3, and it was made by the Yanks.

The banners on the StuG III are: Shinsengumi, Tosa (the Austrian-ish one), Sanada Yukimura, Takeda Shingen. Which fits well with Caesar's colors. I wonder what Erwin (Rommel) added to the design.

That's the name that stood out to you instead of Orange Pekoe or Darjeeling or Assam? And the worst name goes to the poor girl Anchovy.

It probably is. But the rocket launcher was named after the military song; which in turn was from the woman's name Katyusha. So they probably got it right after all!

I like the Tiger I, but I don't think it's a good choice because Teru Maho is already using one. A Panther would be much better for diversity, although I'm still hoping for a Comet.

On a similar note, what can possible used to upgrade the M3? I can't think of any late-war non-prototype tanks with 6 crew.

Gotta remember they're still girls riding those tanks afterall, that was to be expected.

Looks like next episode will feature the bulk of the battle against St. Gloriana seen in episode 1. Looking most forward to all the tank action, especially after how glorious this episode was in that regard

Aside from it being a StuG III in the first place, I'm not seeing any Rommel influences. Maybe the tan top? But that's really minor compared to the sashimono and VENI-VIDI-VICI.

Although that picture is a good way of showing all five tank commanders.
