They were champions for the past 9 games consecutively, and hinted to have gone against Pravda on a very frequent basis until the latest one involving Miho's incident. They obviously done something right.
But your post said "I can see why Black Forest was considered to be the champs just based on specs alone..." If you're not talking about the tanks that we actually saw, then what are you referring to?

I would have assumed that Black Forest were champions so many times because of superior tactics and planning, what with the "Nishizumi style" and all the mystique that goes with it.

That's the best music in the show so far. And you can find that music everywhere; it's almost like a show where the best music is "Also sprach Zarathustra" or "New World Symphony" or something like that. Hamaguchi Shiro has done a great job with arrangement though, and his selection of pieces has been excellent.

They do, and quite awesomely at that too.

A fun bit of trivia is that Uesaka Sumire, the VA for Nonna aka the long-haired Pravda girl this episode, is a well-known Russia otaku, and is fluent in the language. It's quite apparent in the song that she's well versed in the language, adding that extra bit of awesome to it.

Well, there was the Ave Maria in Jinrui, or La Corda D'oro's pieces

Anime really needs to abuse classical music more.

She's notably better at it than Cure Peace.

I agree, but how would they go about selling the OST? I mean, even if you like the music, would you go out of your way to buy something like a Princess Tutu soundtrack?

Who would buy an Evangelion soundtrack where people sing different renditions of "Fly Me to the Moon"? (Please nobody answer this one )

By the way,

Currently watching the episode.

From the dialogue during the introduction of the new B1 "Duck" team, it makes it seem like Oarai school ship is really gonna get scrapped/abolished.
Momo says that the next match is against Pravda, last years champion and they must win, if they lose it's the end. The juniors says that even if they lose, there's a next time. Momo interrupts and answers that it's no good, followed by silence and Anzu repeating that they must win. No reason explained but all puts a very ominous air to it.
To further add to the ominous air is the council inviting Miho to dinner. the little bits talked during it like reminiscing about the good old days at school. And in the end they didn't tell anything to Miho.

And btw the volleyball is Ahiru or domestic duck. And discipline committee is Kamo or (wild) duck.

The challenges posed to Oorai is so steep. I really wonder whose idea it was that Oorai must win against reigning champions with less-than-adequate vehicles. Someone is obviously insane, and something tells me the disciplinary committee is somehow connected to the investors/owners of the school.

OUTLOOK IS PESSIMISTIC!

Seriously, if I was a student at Oorai, I might as well just transfer. Sure the school may be closed down, but wouldn't transferring be an easier option?

And every school ship is bigger than Oarai, this time the Pravda one inspired by the Russian Kuznetsov class carriers.

And they put Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker as the BGM during Pravda's intro to the Oarai team.

Actually, the Pravda carrier is based off the earlier Kiev class carrier, right down to the placement of the buildings emulating the SS-N-12 Sandbox missile launchers on the bow ramp.
