* The KV-2's usage in the opening battle is shown to the extreme with its [[{{BFG}} 152 mm howitzer]] ''demolishing buildings''. Mind you, this is suppose to be a competitive match.
** The movie also puts away any doubt that [[PintsizedPowerhouse Nina's strength]] is anything to joke about. She and her fellow co-loader (who looks just as young and short as her) have no problem reloading a gun that uses ''40 kilogram'' (''88 lbs.!'') shells . Comparing to historical notes, a 152 mm gun will be good enough to shoot 3-4 rounds in a minute, these two loaders manage to load three rounds in ''30 seconds!''.
* [[spoiler:Rosehip's match-saving]] TakingTheBullet in [[spoiler:the opening battle]]. Not only had she managed to crash and almost completely wreck her tank, she managed to keep it going just long enough to [[spoiler:intercept the potentially game winning shot]].
** [[spoiler:Actually, the shot would have missed anyway; [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy Momo-chan]] was gunner, and you can actually ''see'' the Hetzer's gun pull up and to the right just as she fires. This goes a long way to explain why her aim is so poor. Chalk it up to [[WorldOfTanks World of Tanks]] style RNG madness.]]
** The actual game-winning TakingTheBullet moment was when [[spoiler:Katyusha's T-34-85]] appeared at the top of the stairs instead of the [[spoiler:Churchill, allowing Darjeeling to beat the Panzer IV's reload.]]
* [[spoiler:Saunders']] rescue of ''all'' the [[spoiler:Ōarai's tanks]] that were about to be [[spoiler:"taken into MEXT custody" after closing down Ōarai school]]: they ''landed a'' [[spoiler:''[=C-5=] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_C-5_Galaxy#C-5_AMP_and_C-5M_Super_Galaxy Super Galaxy]]'' in the schoolship's gardens, loaded all tanks]], somehow managed to take off again (despite the load surpasing the plane's stated maximum capacity - [[spoiler:Saori]] was worried they couldn't manage it) and flew them all to safety - only to return [[spoiler:a few days later to the Ōarai girls' provisional lodging]] and deliver them via an [[spoiler:''eight'' tanks [=LAPES=] drop]].

Granted, she claims she's doing it so that Kuromorimine can have a chance to defeat them in a rematch, but when the {{Jerkass}} CorruptBureaucrat ordering the liquidation claims that Ōarai won out of luck, she slams her cup down and snaps back with the grace and sharpness of a katana.

* Rabbit Team's plan to [[spoiler:force back the University's tanks after they corner most of Ōarai]]. Shooting the supports on [[spoiler:the ferris wheel to turn it into a rolling wheel of destruction]] is probably one of the craziest plans in the series, and is all thanks to the rabbit's film knowledge.
