Since the question came up how to nickname the RU-251, I thought I'd make a poll with the proposals.

 

Here is the thread where the proposals came from:

Thank you for participating.

I can come up with some better names than those in your poll. Think about:

 

Zippy, Lucky, Shizzle, Spot, Bugatti, Maglev, Tsunami, Cheetah, Wasp, Musquito, Bolt, Schumacher :trollface:

>It's going to be called Nyancat

 

Guys, if "Nyancat" wins, you're never to refer to it by anything else ever again, unless it's a proper name.  Not even to explain what tank you mean by 'Nyancat'.

Some proposals didn't make it to the poll. Why didn't you include them ?

i tried it on test server for some 20-30 battles,and as the turtle(tortoise) is used,it should be called "slug" or something like that.

i find it really hard to achieve those 80km\h,and it sucks going uphill. but then, those 101km\h on el halluf makes "the rock" nickname quite suitable. why the rock? because it is hard to get it going,but once you do that,you can't stop it :)

(that is just my opinion)

CHEERS!!!

It's a baby leopard in its play-style, so it's official nickname should be that.

I'll still call mine Kitteh' :3

I would call him Kette Cat , in the style of Kitty Cat , you have all of the important ingredients in the name , the Felidae and the Transmission ,

which both are the characteristics of the cat and the tank , the speed and the bushwhack of the enemy aka the prey.

You have the german word Kette in it and the english word Cat , proving the tanks background and entitlement in the german army and also

in the NATO , which is obviously a treaty guided by english speaking countries like the USA , the UK.

 

Can not wait to get my Kette Cat in my Garage , everything is prepared , the Garage Slot , the experience , the Crew , the credits.

I even bought a pack of Kit Kats ™ that i will enjoy while waiting with my Kette Cat in some bush spotting enemies for my team to

give full scope of their killings skills on the prey.
