* ImprobableAimingSkills: Whenever a tank hits an enemy tank by firing on the move, they are performing a feat that ''very'' few extremely lucky WWII tankers achieved. Most WWII tanks did not feature vertical stabilizers for the main gun (the M4 Medium tank was an exception), and although the British and Soviets tried teaching their men to fire on the move (though usually at infantry) by matching the motion of the tank over rough ground, both ended up retiring the doctrine until the introduction of better stabilized weapons during the Cold War

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: All of the tanks seem to drive the same speed.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalJerkass:
** An odd example comes with Anchovy, since the manga was released before the anime showed her match with Oarai. In the anime, Anchovy's competitive but fairly good-spirited, and after losing, invites the Oarai crew to eat with her and the people who set up the match. In the manga, she starts off by accusing Miho of having a "weak" way of tankery, and at the end, accuses Miho of costing her old school the championship by abandoning the flag tank.
** Erika is a {{Jerkass}} in the anime, but mainly to the extent of being snide and condescending toward Miho (for example, in the finals, saying that Oarai must be weak if she became its commander). In the manga, between the semifinals and the finals, Erika flies over to Oarai, confronts Miho, and angrily accuses her of not just costing them the victory, but abandoning them in their time of crisis, and vaguely insinuates that Miho traded her vice-captaincy of her old school for captaincy of her of her new school. She's significantly more vicious and angry in that scene from the manga, and leaves Miho in tears at the end of it.
