It should also be noted that the student council team all have names based on fruits. Anzu = apricot, Momo = Peach, Yuzu = er, well, Yuzu. Yuzu is a grapefruit-like citrus fruit.

Speaking of the student council team, I often find it amusing that while this anime is often compared to Strike Witches, Saki, and Taisho Yakyu Musume, the three council members are played by the very same VAs of the main characters (though Takahashi Mikako was only for the drama CD ver.) Makes me want to cheer for the team even more!

Beside Yukari (tank otaku as same as me ), Momo is my favourite character, I like her appearance and personality.

Some interesting stories from Chinese anime forum(veracity not guaranteed).

Some guy happened to show this episode to a former Russian T-72 platoon leader, who is now running a restaurant in China. His comments summarized:

-Nonna (Uesakaya Smirnova) speaks relatively good Russian;
-The formation of Pravda tanks is praised as beyond expectation;
-The "strike formation" is better than he (the T-72 guy) could direct;
-The tactics are, however, unRussian, because of lack of preparatory artillery bombardment. (Understandable though)
-His grandfather, a former T-34 crew during Great Patriotic War, also watched this episode, and even drew on-paper simulations, discussing with his comrades.
-One of the mainstream tactics used by T-34 against Pkf.IV is to bump and clash, then finsh it with PPSh and grenades.
-
Why is there no real Russian? asked the grandfather.

That's pretty amusing. And awesome.

 Easy lecture from Japanese. That fruits' name "Yuzu" is describe as two Kanji charactors. "柚子”, each charactor has sounds "Yu" and "Zu”, but "柚" also had both sound in one charactor, can read as "YuZu”. It is usual matter one Kanji charactor had many sounds, but don't worry, we also confuse many time as foreigners did, especially in Name (Person, Place, etc.....), needs confirmation every time. Never mind.

Ambitious but rubbish. Remember The Hammerhead i-Eagle Thrust.
Too sad to say, there seems to be no DIY shop or low budget second-hand tank dealer near tournament field. I hope Man-lab could help Ooarai team.......but it's Girls Only, not for Man.

The nicknames of the three girls on the Discipline Committee are allusions to:

Sodoko (medium hair) --> Sodom (the name of an ancient city)
Gomoyo ( long hair ) --> Gomorrah (the name of an ancient city)
Pazobi ( short hair ) --> Italian film director (d.1975) Pier Paolo Pasolini who directed "Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom" in 1975. Set in 1944 Italy, it is an allegory about Hell, based on a work of Marquis de Sade and in turn based on Dante's Inferno. NSFW.

Kind of surprised of the Pasolini reference. He's not really that known aside Italy, AFAIK.

The film is somewhat notorious, though. At the very least, it completes the theme with the other two crewmembers' names.

Since you started let me finish. And because "柚" can have the sound "Yuzu" by itself and "子" can have the sound "Ko" that people usually associate with names that end in ~Ko. That's what people assumed and the error originated.
