Chris commanded the Comet. And after learning to work together with the crew they defeated the other tanks and won. He earned the boys and girls respect.

What do you think so far ?
I've said my piece on the insistence-on-a-boy part so I won't repeat it. But if you are trying to emulate Miho's first little game, don't you think you should be giving Chris something other than what is arguably the best tank on that list? The BT-7M simply isn't competitive (though it is fast so if you stuff Chris in it he can use it well and win), nor is the Grizzly. The StuG IV is better but it has limited traverse and its gun's firepower is not really greater. The closest is the Firefly but the Comet faster and is a dedicated design for a gun only mildly inferior to the 17-pounder while Firefly's 17-pounder is a "glue-on". The best tank winning just doesn't let Chris show his stuff in a way that might win over anyone.

Coalition-SV will be clearly post-Cold War. Even Smerch and BMP-3 are quite close.

Because of the fact that a vast number of watchers of the show (and hence the mostly likely to write fanfiction about it) are guys. Either they feel that a fanfic NEEDS a male perspective, or discard it entirely and put on the yuri goggles full-time (see the amount of doujin ready to be released for the next Comiket via their samples on Pixiv).

As for the stance of the two manga on the matter though: no men, ever.

As for how much Senshado has permeated society, it seems to be on the level of Formula 1 racing (remember, one of the Auto club girls actually dreams of owning her own PROFESSIONAL Senshado team) -- it's well known globally, but if you don't know about the specifics of the sport itself people won't look down on you.

Speaking as a male writer (although I've abandoned fanfiction due to developing an active distaste for it), I found the predominance of male main characters in my own earlier works to be annoying after a while (yeah it's an easy perspective to write: it's freaking MY perspective. Cop out!), and I abandoned it entirely to write stories with female main characters. That forced me to make perspective characters that couldn't simply be self-inserts, and I believe it was helpful in teaching me to more fully develop my characters.

If someone wishes to use fanfiction to address the concern of death in senshado matches (I wish they wouldn't do it where I'd be exposed to it, but that's my personal issue), there is no need to use a male character for that purpose. Everyone wants their character to be special, and making a player in an all-female sport a male would automatically make them stand out, that's true, but it's not necessary. An ordinary female player could be known for having done something extraordinary: having won a particularly noteworthy match under particularly adverse circumstances, for instance, or perhaps have a reputation for doing such things. Perhaps they responded quickly to a terrible accident during training or a match, something more significant than Miho's river rescue, and gained fame for saving a number of lives while still accomplishing their mission. Perhaps any number of other things. There are a number of ways a character can be made into someone special without having to violate the established rules of the setting. It may require more thought, but story would generally be considered to be better written for having put in the time and effort.

On fanfiction topic, I want to recommend that insted of male, you can always used existed characters in GuP universe.

For example: Remember that Blackforest's girl who came up to thank Miho to safe her life before the match? If you want someone to talk about moral or safety in Senshado, you can use her.

I amazed they're willing to go belowdecks, given what happened last time. I mean, that thing literally has miles of corridors. It seems entirely possible to find a section of the ship that no one has been in for years, and that no one will be in for years. There could be a lost civilization down in some forgotten corner of the ship and no one would even know it.

...Really, that thing is scarily big.

It makes me wonder what other Panzers might possibly be lurking around down there in that abyss, lol.

Well I suppose you can lose a Maus in a ship that is over 4 and a half miles long.
