In this universe, you;ve have the counterculture (male) tank crews up against Nazi SS panzers (who might be women, but if the film remains as is, than are also male crewed).
Yes, Oddball, as fun as he is, is the main reason I have suspension of disbelief, among other things, whenever I see this movie. There's absolutely no way a guy like him and his crew would be running a tank platoon in 1944 Europe. The fake Tiger is also very distracting, but that's just my nitpickiness.

family or something, it's just a sport!!
Good point of view. There is similarity how SAMURAI became weaker, rely on tradition and family pride long time in Tokugawa Period instead of real combat skill. When Sengoku period ends, Tokugawa lays total disarming on nationwide heavier than Toyotomi's disarming campaign. Tokugawa's domination continues almost 260 years, in that environment, Samurai was only few people to allow wields arms, there's no competents except some criminals. They had total brutallity for the unarmed weak popularity long since, in reverse effect, They became Armed beaureaucrats more than warrior. They didn't need to fight, but show their weapon. I think domination of total power by Kuromorimine & Nishizumi-Ryu combination is became like Samurai on Rearmost period of Edo, as you pointed out. They fated to loose in future somewhere. Well, this is the time, Ooarai ! Raise your fist !

My Prediction time again! Believe or not, I can hit targets like MomoChan!
I think Kelly's Heroes had a clue. Did you remember, who saw it at game beforenight? And what scene they're watching? And how Shaman tank can beats Tiger tank?
Yes, that's it. Rabbit team became true Killer-Rabbit as their emblem. What's wrong is, Maho choose Tiger tank for flag-carrier, then Rabbits watch Kelly's Heroes already! Ha-Ha!

Why do I get the feeling we will be getting 11 and 12 right before 13 and 14 etc..., in other words the beginning of season 2.
Spoiler for speculation:

Be interesting if they lose, but by what Maho considers a cowardly victory (say shooting the helpless flag tank in the water by her second in command). Not sure if her family way is victory at all costs, or an honorable victory by always advancing.

If that was the case, than Maho's Tiger by default will not retreat, nor hide like the Pravda and Sanders flag tanks. But on the other hand it is a Tiger I...there isn't much it needs to fear, and what can hurt it out there, it can also kill.

Kinda make sense... As the original character designer for Girls und panzer is the same as the character designer for some Shinkis(Arnval, Strarf)...

Any idea when episode 11 will air?(I know its march, but is there an exact date?)

It's not like she tried to be clever and got outsmarted. It was all rather straightforward.
Actually, King Tiger, Ferdinand and JagdTiger are not fast, they're slow and big, moving to forest with those is very difficult, because their size, trees will slow them down, not mention they can be stuck in mud due their weight, if tank try to move itself to out the mud, it will catch in fire just like Tiger P, especial the Ferdinand which use the same chassis of Tiger P but heavier. So most of cases, tanks avoid moving to forest unless they have engineer corps or pointmen open path for them or they're light weight and small tanks. Thus Miho think they don't make a shortcut throught he forest.

In terms of being slow, part of that is because of their engines simply not being strong enough to make up for all the extra weight of armor on them (like with sinking into the mud, as you mentioned), which is why pushing them resulted in them catching fire so easily or just breaking down.

In terms of the idea of them not being able to make it through the forest also makes me think of the invasion of France in 1940, when the Nazis took the British and French by surprise by cutting through the Ardennes; a place where they believed they wouldn't be able to get through with their tanks, thus leaving their flank open. (Also ironic that it was also in the Ardennes that Hitler made his "last gamble" with the Battle of the Bulge.)

The German go through the forest with the support of Engineer corps and Scouts, while the Black Forest don't has that support.

Thx everyone for clarifying, I do feel strange as why Miho is surprised when they get fired upon. Like someone said, for someone who don't know much about tanks it is all about Math and Physics (distance and velocity)

So normally tanks do not go through forest (that is what Miho is calculating on), but black forest is so awesome that they can. (like during the match vs Russian the inexperienced morality squad cannot drive their tank through snowy hill but Mako can, because Mako is good at it).

Who knows? With that many girls on the team, I would be surprised if they had some that doubled as engineers. Ooarai does have the godly car mechanic team. And recon is obviously allowed, as both Pravda and Ooarai left their tank to spot the enemy in the previous match.

Still, even if they had that, it's a bit inconceivable that they got through so dang fast. I'm just passing it off as an homage to Ardennes; a bit pushing it, but you can't have the match go on for days, so...

Still behind on episodes (other things have distracted me), but I've seen reviews of them. On a scale of 1 to airstrike, how badly are our girls outgunned in this final match?

I get the feeling that the last match is happening at Higashifuji (East Fuji Maneuver Area) although I don't recall there being that many trees there.
