Hi guys, I just made this topic thread so that we can collect all of the tank nick names you have.

 

Here are some of mine

 

French

- M4A1 Revalorise = Revolver/super sherman/"Thor's hammer"              (Gun looks like a huge hammer)

 

German

- Kanonenjagdpanzer = Can opener/Tin can               (good gun, bad armour)

the more common nicknames, I can remember at the moment :) (some of them are very old, and probably unknown by new players, since the game changed quite a bit)

For most hightier tanks without a specific nickname, the ending number/number+letter is the "nickname", e.g. T110E3/4/5 are E3, E4 and E5, or Obj.140 is just 140, or AMX 50 100 is 50 100...

 

British

-FV215b 183 = Deathstar (II, JagdpanzerE100 was the I)

 

German

-  Pz.Sfl.IVc = Toaster / Flak Bus

- Pz.Kpfw. 38H 735 (f)  = Mini-Maus

- Leichttraktor = Lol-Tracktor

- Jagdpanzer E-100 = Deathstar I / Jagaru (before the FV215b 183 was introduced, it was the Deathstar. Jagaru  is the only nickname I really "hate", in german it kinda sounds like a name for a sweet, small tank:child:....)

- Panther/M10 = Manta / Panverine

- VK 72.01 (K) = Fail-Löwe

- Durchbruchswagen 2 / DW2 = Douche-Wagon

- Ferdinand = Ferdi

- Waffenträger E-100 = Waffle

- Rheinmetall Borsig Waffenträger = Borsig

 

French

- AMX 40  = the Duck

- Bat.-Châtillon 25 t = Batchat

- ARL 44 (especially with stock turret) = the Barn / Fridge

- S35 CA = Bathtube

 

China

- Typ 59 = China Firecracker (it's more a german nickname: "China Böller" )

 

Russia

- SU-100Y = Box-Tank

 

USA

- T95 = Turtle/Doomturtle (old)

 

not in the game anymore:Aufklärungspanzer = Awful Panther

 

oh and, All Artys = Clicker :P

Well I recon the new tier 1 Czech tank should be known as the Boob tank, for fairly obvious reasons ;)

Don't know if you know, but that is the actual name for the tank in Israelli service...

 

Also, the french name for the tank ingame is made up and is complete bullshite... also, the tank isn't french but Israelli... 

Sure, the french had a hand in it's production, but they only supplied parts for it (namely the gun and it's stabilizer)

The tank was created due to israelli lack of tanks that could take out T-10Ms and T-64s from long range...

 

M50/51 Super sherman:

M50: 

M51:

 

Edit: Stronk grammer on my part :hiding:
