Best guess is they surrendered their spot to Ooarai.

Well for the Koala Forest Academy there would probably be the AC I, III, and IV. Some variants of the Matilda II, and possibly the M3 Grant. The Best possible tank for them being the Centurion Mk 5, which would also be the best possibility for St. Gloriana and BC Freedom.

Maginot Girls mainstay would probably be the Somua S35 and the Hotchkiss variants. Or they may have a real mix including the B1 Bis, AMC 35, and various Renaults. If they're lucky they might have an ARL 44 and AMX 13 to give a little firepower.

As for BC Freedom, undoubtedly two or three Rams. Not necessarily of the same Mk since there are two configurations and two different hulls. A Valentine Mk VI. Maybe a Grizzly or two. And I'd hazard a guess towards the possibilities of the Churchill Mk I, and either the M3 or M5 Stuarts. Not sure if they'd have M10s or M4A2s with different suspensions and the 76mm.

My guess is they all use various nationalities' vehicles to some extent.

What I really wonder is how they manage to minimize the risk of injury to their crews. And also why it's an exclusively female martial art.

Looks like we'll be getting a glimpse of Episode 11 early, according to here. Supposedly, the Girls Und Panzer Carnival on January 27 will show short clips from 11 alongside a showing of episodes 1-10, so the wait will be easier.

Waiting is never easy, but managible. At least one doesn't have to wait 33 years for new episodes to appear on television. (though only about 25 years for a new film)

Many Japanese martial art these days are nearly exclusive to women, even though they originated as male dominated fields.

The two main ones I can think of are Kyūdō and Naginatajutsu. Neither are meant to be feminine as such, but men just dropped out over the centuries because for one reason or another, there are more masculine alternatives. And the higher the ratio of women participate in them, the more socially feminine it got.

There's an exact answer already in setting. These tank had protected by Carbon "something" Corting interior, it absorb most of shock from impact of incoming shell and explosion. And Shell was specially made by Sensha-Do Comittee, those warhead is completely inpenetratable (maybe fracturelize at impact), and had transmitter microchip inside. It transmits many data, Type of Warherd (AP, SAP, HE, etc.), caliber and weight, propelled time for calculate muzzle velocity and distance, and angle of impact. Then, Tank's Computerized Simulator will made exam by these info from shell and exterior sensor, to judge shelled tank's damage grade virtually. If simulator judge for "Out of Action", then White flag raise automatically, that tank should be halted and never allow to leave. If something go wrong (damage on Sims or Player disobey rule and will continue fighting, or in serious accident), there's a human judge in field will pronounce for stop game. These rule settings is official. Safety for Sensha-Do, it's not war. Don't worry, be happy.

And now, at GuP world, boys had Galley-Do, they having fun in row-row-row-the sweep and ramming and boarding, tweeted by some Anime Technical Supervisor in joke!

Because, Finnish winter war called as 「継続戦争」in Japan.  School No.16 is written in Japanese term as「継続高校」. That's why.

Then, Why Finland chosen?

Because, both Finland and Japan fight defensive war against Gigantic Russia(Soviet) and succeed once (but too sad to say, not at last.....), many military otaku had some sympathy on Finland.

And GOOD NEWS!! Dacia Sa*ahem* I don't know why, but this list drops マズルカ学園(Mazurek HighSchool)from entry. Don't worry.

Actually, that's a completely wrong statement.


Kyudo is still practiced pretty much equally, except that due to the popularity of kendo pulling in the boys, in pure numerical standards it may appear that the girls are the majority.

Naginatajutsu became "feminine" because it was the prime weapon of the onna-bugeisha due to the advance of history. The use of firearms meant there was not as much of a need for the naginata as before (with the yari, the spear, becoming more important), and this led to the use of the naginata as both a symbol of the social status of women of the samurai class and for actual use in home defense.

I think more than a few of us tried World of Tanks because of the show. Can't say I'm too surprised, as I'm guilty as well, though only the most hardcore try for the tiers higher than V (where you see the iconics like the Sherman, the Panzer IV, and the T-34).

Seems like it's worked out pretty well.

Meh, I've always liked tanks, but I never saw the point of being completely solo in a game like WoT.
