** [[BadassDriver Shinobu]], the driver of the Duck Team and flag tank in this match manages to pull off some insane feats of driving, somehow dodging a literal hailstorm of gunfire from Pravda's forces to buy time for Team Anglerfish and Hippo to shoot down the enemy flag tank. This includes, at one point, balancing the [[TheAllegedCar Type 89]] ''on its nose'' for several seconds before righting it again. Even better, when the tank finally was hit by Pravda's ColdSniper at about the same time the enemy flag tank was blasted, it just barely managed to avoid fatal damage that would have made it immobilized, being able to feebly hobble forward a few more meters and thus indicating Ōarai's clear victory.

** Helps put in context exactly how awesome this is, that in a much later chapter we see a similar operation done in an amateurish (no recon, no plan, "just barge in") way by other [[spoiler:adult]] tankery players, which are plainly far less well trained for that kind of operations than Duck Team.

** Rabbit Team also get a slice of the awesome as, after spending most of the battle running away, they eventually end up in pursuit of Anzio's other two Semovente... and manage to actually take them out.

to:

** Rabbit *Rabbit Team also is a series of subtle and unseen awesomes in the Anzio OVA.
**The day before the match, finding that they had a deficiency in driving, they rectify it in one day.
**In the actual match, Azusa finds two low-profile small Semoventes stopped and in the shadows before they see her large moving tank in the sun. Aya then hits it, casually, on the move.
**They then
get a slice chased but Azusa and Karina control the tank so well that none of the awesome as, after spending most shells hit, using no more than gentle S-turns and without speed-killing, wheel-shearing maneuvers (this demonstrates an excellent understanding of the battle running gunnery OODA loop).
**When it is finally their turn to counterattack, Aya and Ayumi land shots to within a car-width of the Semoventes despite moving at maximum speed against zigzagging targets close to their maximum speed at ranges of over a kilometer.
**Azusa then had her crowning moment of awesome. She stops the tank to direct fire. Let's consider her challenges. 1) The cupola has no magnification (neither, by the way, do the gunnery scopes of the M3 Lee). 2) It also has no reticule markings. 3) She is correcting the fire of a second gun using the shellfall of a different, non coaxial gun with grossly different ballistics (fire correction is usually done with the same gun). 4) The targets are safely over a kilometer
away, they eventually end up moving fast in pursuit of Anzio's zigzags plus are climbing a hill, thus requiring a lead computation in 2-axes. 5) She has to command the firing which is less precise than pressing a button. She (and her crew) pushes past all these odds to land a kill first-time.
**They then chase the
other two Semovente... Semovente, which is only less than 1200m from Anchovy and manage the M3 is over a kilometer behind. In an unshown display of massive driver skill superiority (the M3 does have superior catalog speed, but it is not close to actually take them out.twice as fast), they moved so fast they got in ahead and around the Semovente and waited for it to show up, killing it immediately after it rolled down a cliff. No one in Anzio ever saw it coming.
**Sometimes, the best awesomes are those that are subtle or even unseen.

** Doubly awesome in that the sheer weight of Leopon doing this causes the stone bridge they're crossing to collapse behind them - preventing Kuromorimine from following.

-->'''Erika''': There's an unspoken rule that everyone knows: schools that will just embarrass Tankery stay out of the tournament.

* A non-Tankery example happens when Mako gives a [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] retort to [[{{jerkass}} Erika]] that leaves her unable to respond with anything except a glare (by contrast, Erika simply told Yukari to [[ShutUpKirk mind her own business]] when she defended Miho).

** The same OVA shows us Anzio's tankette crews effectively using the [=Carro Veloce L3/35's=] main drawback (their very light weight and tendency to tumble) as a GodMode by letting their tankettes roll with the impact. Literally. Also [[MultiTrackDrifting do 180-degree turns]], fire at their pursuers, then drift again back forward. Repeatedly.
