** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with St. Gloriana's, which befriends Ōarai after defeating them, because they made such a good show.
** The straight version of this trope is {{Lampshaded}} by Darjeeling in Episode 10, after some of Miho's former opponents come to greet her and wish her luck in the finals of the tournament.

* CastOfSnowflakes: They made sure that ''everyone'' in the humongous cast -- '''32''' main characters ('''five''' of them being the ''main leads'', '''three''' of them being the ''secondary protagonists'' and the rest being ''supporting protagonists'') in Ōarai alone, a similar number of important support characters, and ''another'' similar number of minor characters which still have enough distinctive traits to be noteworthy even if they don't say anything. The only ([[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals intentional]]) exception is the Public Morals Committee trio.

* MsFanservice:
** In episode 2, Yuzu somehow winds up washing her team's tank in a two-piece bikini.
** Hana and, surprisingly enough, Momo in the second OVA. For comparison, Momo's bikini was basically two strips of cloth down her front and a collar while Hana's bottom was one string away from revealing everything.
** In ''Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu'' Chapter 3, the Anteater Team girls have risque swimsuits.
** In the Christmas chapter of the above, Maho wears a sexy Christmas themed dress, whilst Erika wears a rather...flattering...Anglerfish dance outfit.

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: One that can ''expel'' students for choosing an elective different from that imposed by the Council upon them, or erase conditions that would lead to expulsion if students play along. Lampshaded by Saori and Hana, who outright accuse the President, Anzu Kadotani, of being a petty tyrant abusing her powers. [[spoiler: It shows how desperate Anzu is to save Ōarai from closure, going so far as to strike a deal to keep Ōarai open were it to win the upcoming Nationals, [[ExactWords and if they fail, Miho won't be at Ooarai for her third year]] because the school ship will no longer exist. It wasn't an expulsion threat after all.]] This is justified in OVA 3, which shows that each School Ship's Student Council are in charge of the crew, itself entirely made of students, giving them ''higher'' seniority than a normal Council.[[note]]A good simile would be a big university's top level student's representatives, which also explains why they get to negotiate directly with MEXT on matters pertaining to the whole School Ship[[/note]]
** To clarify, it's a city-size ship with a city on it's deck run by high school students and governed by its student council, which controlls a massive budget, has access to tanks, planes and pretty much anything they can get their hands on, and negotiates directly with the government. But they're nice people, so it's OK.

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: All of the tanks seem to drive the same speed. The best example happens in the battle with Pravda, where Oarai can't outrun the persuing Soviet tanks, but Pravda can't catch up with them. In reality, most tanks have vastly different speeds given their horsepower to ton ratio.
** It's not clear if [[spoiler: ships the size of the school ships]] are actually feasible to build in real life - and certainly, due to the SquareCubeLaw, it's monumentally unlikely they'd look like carbon copies of WWII carriers.

** Maxims of the Nizishumi style as explained by Shiho and Maho: "Nishizumi-style Senshado means always finding a way to move forward. There is no running away in the Nishizumi-style. If you shoot, you hit, if you defend, you defend strong, if you advance, you advance without falter. Iron rules and a heart of steel. That is what defines the Nishizumi school."
*** Even Miho shares a part of that opinion: "There's no path a tank cannot traverse! Tanks move forward even under enemy fire... No matter how tough it is, we must think of a way to overcome!" The key difference with her mother is that she emphasizes teamwork toward a common goal over the idea that everything must be sacrificed to victory.

** Ami runs her Type 10 over the Principal's Ferrari F40. ''Twice''.
** Episode 12 features more extensive use of the trope.
*** The ZanyScheme to handle the BossBattle relies on this rather than firepower. It [[spoiler:succeeds]] spectacularly.
*** When their ''Film/KellysHeroes''-inspired plan fails to work [[spoiler:a second time]], Team Rabbit is forced to fall back upon this. It's the Creator/JackieChan variety with a tank. He would be proud, as it's most likely a ShoutOut.
*** Two much larger enemy tanks try to crush Duck Team between them.
*** Erika, [[spoiler: in a vain attempt to reinforce Maho]], manages to drive her Tiger II over the [[spoiler: the wreckage of three tanks]] and under a very low gap.
** Happens in OVA 7, between Hippo team and Cappricio's Semovente 75/18.

*** In "Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu", they are also shown as [[GermanicDepressives almost completely humorless]], and, except for [[OnlySaneMan Koume]], mistake Maho's inviting them to a Christmas party for punishing them for their mistakes.

In a move that [[HilariousInHindsight surprised no one]], the makers of ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' [[http://gs.inside-games.jp/news/423/42302.html and Studio Actas cooperated in creating in-game exclusive content related to the anime]] in celebration of the creation of a Japanese server cluster for the game.

In RealLife, certain Japanese martial arts are considered [[LadyOfWar highly compatible]] with [[YamatoNadeshiko traditional womanly ideals]], including ''[[ArcherArchetype kyuudou]]'' and ''[[NaginatasAreFeminine naginata]]''''[[BladeOnAStick jutsu]]''. In this show, [[FantasticFightingStyle one of those martial arts]] is ''sensha-do'' -- the "Way of the Tank".

*** The History Club girls are, obviously, named after historical figures, namely: Erwin (UsefulNotes/ErwinRommel), Saemonza (Oda Nagamasa), Caesar (Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar), and Oryou (Narasaki Ryou). Honorary member Yukari chooses Guderian (Heinz Guderian). Their real names, on the other hand, are based on the names of people who worked on the series. Caesar's real name is Takako Suziki (Takaaki Suzuki, Military researcher), Saemonza is Kiyomi Sugiyama (Kiyoshi Sugiyama, the producer), and so on.
