* A variant of this trope is present with the Ooarai Girls' Academy sensha-do club of ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer''. While the members of the club are Japanese, their tanks are from units from different countries: Germany (Panzer IV, [=StuG III=], Tiger(P)), France (Char B1 Bis), [=USA=] ([=M3=] Lee), Czech Republic (Panzer 38(t)), and Japanese (Type 89, Type 3 Chi-Nu). Justified as these tanks are the remnants of the then defunct sensha-do club of Ooarai, and the better tanks were sold off in the past.
