You must spend some time (like 2+ years) abroad to appreciate this joke in full. Quite a few everyday items are called by the name of inventor or first well known comercial brand. F.e. rubber boots are "Wellingtons" or "wellies", ballpen is "Byro" and vacuum cleaner is "Hoover". Also I think Hoover was some mid XX age president of US. So it makes "hoovertank" double hilarious.

Huh? You've never heard of J Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI? Or of President Herbert Hoover after whom the dam was named? Or the Hoover building in London alongside the A40, a superb example of Art Deco architecture? Or of the most well-known manufacturer of vacuum cleaners? So well-known in fact that "hoovering" is used as a verb to mean using a vacuum cleaner!

Maybe the OP is planning to clean up all the rubble on so many maps :) I think I'd prefer a longer handle though, like the L/100 handle on the PantherHoover or my back will never forgive me for all the bending down to use the Hoovertank.
Or maybe it's for all the female players? Next we'll have Cookertanks and Washertanks and Fridgetanks and ....
