* From the "russian" four-pointed star on the Pravda uniforms it seems that the series takes place in the ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' universe. Probably there's still enough of Neuroi threat remains to base schools on land. Either that or the Neuroi are gone, but left some poisonous shiat behind as a scorched earth tactic. We're in WMG so [[SincerityMode it's a nice crossover theory]].

** Against 122 mm you ''[[ArmorIsUseless really don't want to get hit]]'' no matter which tank you use so in that case you use an option which limits your offensive capabilities the least. ''[[TheAllegedCar I-Go]]'' has the least effective gun due to extremely low muzzle velocity an if they use [[TheAllegedCar Type 89A]] it is completely useless in these weather conditions due to the engine. For what (little) is worth, they use a late model [[TheAllegedCar Type89B Otsu]] (recognisable for the turret), whose diesel engine was maybe the ''only'' thing worth saving. It's ''still'' a worthless tank that doesn't hurt the team's capabilities by not being actively used.

* Inverted: Momo has perfect eyesight in both eyes (Lasik, maybe?), but she chose to keep her old prescription glasses in the form of her improvised monocole. Must have been a very strong prescription if it screws with her vision that badly.

* From a purely logical point of view, Women are smaller on average than men. Given that making the crew space smaller means a smaller overall tank, well, do the math. GUP-verse quite likely was less sexist from the start, Men and Women both enlisted, and it's quite likely that both were, atleast initially, before tankery culture really established itself, were given assigned to tanks, but as the war wore on, and tanks were built with crew size restrictions that women fit under more easily, Tanking was seen as more of a woman's skill than a man's. The Military itself is still more egalitarian, but tank crews are still dominantly women, while tankery has become almost entirely a woman's sport.

At least one station was ready to broadcast on January 9th, but because the show will be renewed, they had to completely redo Episodes 11 and 12 to allow a second season. Girls Und Panzer is popular enough to creat a seacond season. As the main page states, the show was a runaway (and unexpected) hit. The first two BDs sold about 30,000 copies each. A typical show does more like 4,000. It'd be odd if the production team ''weren't'' at least contemplating a sequel/second season. Indeed, according to TheOtherWiki, the Japanese newspaper ''Joyo Shimbun'' reported on December 24th, 2012, that a sequel is tentatively planned.

** Volley ball team will get an M60 Patton upgraded to a turkish M60T Sabra, Histroy team will get a Raketenjagdpanzer 4 or Jaguar 2 (a tank destroyer with TOW missiles rather then a gun) the student council a swedish S tank. The fresh men will be split into two T-64 tanks, the displine team will get a PT-76 light tank, the gamers get a french AMX-30 tank no idea what Miho will get since i can't find a five man battle tank.

The performance of Nishizumi was far less than one would expect from THE elite school that Nishizumi is [[InformedAbility played up]] to be. They seem to have only one tatctic: confront the other team head on and smash them with superior tanks and this tactic seems to be enforced by Miho's mom to the point of dogmatism.

* When Miho mixes things up with her Tank Impersonation in the finals, they fall to confusion and dissaray because they are used to being a hammer. When you have the ablity to bring in the kind of guns they did, (Tiger, Panthers,Jadgpanther, Jagdtiger and Elefant) then your only tactical concern is getting as much armor as you can in the enemy's face (proverbially speaking given the range of those guns) and hitting them with as soon as you can. Brute force smashing is a valid tactic if you have the guns and armor for it. As for tactics, they place this hammer into position to smash and little else. In the finals, this hammer emerged from the forest because Maho knows Miho's first move is the safety of the forest, and moved to deny that.They sought to thwack it at the correct nail right from the start, but what happens if the nail turns out to be a slippery one?

* Miho on the other hand has a ragtag group of tanks that are not nearly as capable as there opponents in every match up. She has to be tactical and has to be cleaver in order to win. Black forest has Hammers to which all they see are nails, destroy all enemy tanks then go for the flag, in that order. Miho has a pocket knife she has to some how use like a swiss army scalpe to pull of her wins, deftly going for the flag tank. Previous generations of Nishizumi school wer based on highly flexibile tactical combat which is characteristic for Miho. This characteristic is called "hersey" by her mother.

It will either be chosen by prebattle vote, or set to the top or bottom tank in any match (highest tier and lowest respectivly) one tank will be chosen to be the Flag tank. if the flag tank is killed, game over for that team. Also it will either be Tank Companies or Clan Wars only. Random public matches would likely be lost if an idiot became the flag.Ask [=SerB=] to implement it. The developers are not averse to hear from the fans.
* Jossed: This was asked at a Reddit "Ask Me Anything". There was originally an 'Escort' mode where three random tanks were the only ones who could claim, and if all three were destroyed, your side lost. (Basically, THREE flag tanks). The inability even for their supertesters to protect the escort tanks put the kibosh on the idea, as public players would be far, far worse. It makes sense why this would happen. Discounting artillery, which would only need somebody on the team to have Line of Sight on the Flag Tanks, World of Tanks players would rather single-mindedly go for the objective tanks rather than trying to "soften up" the enemy as seen in GuP. Another possible problem is most certainly a Sensha-do arena is at least four times the size of a World of Tanks map (Which is set at no larger than 1 kilometer by 1 kilometer), meaning the Escort gamemode should be tried again after WoT has larger maps.

In addition to planning to disown Miho, she may [[YouHaveFailedMe become very displeased with Maho]] if Oorai manages to win. Miho may end up having to defend her style of Tankery to her mother, possibly by bringing up how she was fighting for the sake of the school, and wasn't going to allow herself to lose for that reason.

* There are so many signs pointing to this; the existence of 7-km long acedemy ships with islandscapes on top, some tanks being able to move faster than they should (Type 89...), Miho's ridiculous jumps in Episode 11, the Porsche Tiger's bridge collapse stunt, the Maus not outright flattening the Hetzer with its 188 ton weight and the many, many tanks that flip over and/or are flung short distances by tank shells all indicate that their universe has lower gravity than ours. Maybe their Earth is smaller?

Remember the Porsche Tiger? Notice how it's found in an lower deck storage room, not all that bigger than the tank itself, and that is not accesible except for small passageways. Also notice how it's found fully assembled, but then, there's talk of how "it's not gonna be available" for the Anzio and Pravda battles. Finally notice how in episode 10 they mention that the Automovile team just assembled all its scattered parts, even though it was found fully assembled. [[FridgeBrilliance Corolary:]] The only way for the tank to exit (and enter) the room is disassembled. Plainly, the Tiger (P) was originally lost because of an ''Film/AnimalHouse'' - style [[PracticalJoke prank]] - the classic "disassemble a car and assemble it again inside their room" one, but UpToEleven.

Just an obvious extrapolation, given the clearly-caucasian slant of the most visible Saint Glorianna team (Darjeeling, Assam, and Orange Pekoe), as well as the higher-than usual ratio of blondes and redheads in Saunders (as shown by Yukari's infiltration). It's especially noticeable compared to Oorai, a school without a National theme, whose members barring two exceptions (Akebi and Nekonyaa) feature hair colors are normally what could be found among real-life Japanese (mainly black or shades of brown).

Inpsired by Oorai's underdog victory, other schools might decide to try and enter the nationals (not necessarily to save their schools, but perhaps just for the money and prestige). They might have a mix of tanks from all nations like Oorai or go for a themed team.

Much like Formula One racing, companies that produce the tanks use the Sensha-do tournaments to promote their products. While professional teams are their main customers, they may sponsor the tanks for schools to showcase their engineering. Thus schools with a good track record (like Saunders, St Gloriana, Pravda and Kuromorimine) have excellent material while poorer schools have to make do with what they can afford like Oorai. There are reasons they are not covered in sticks like [=NASCARs=]:

However, Miho made the logical leap backward, evolving back from Orthodoxy style to the 'neo' style that was now shunned. This is why her mother got so mad and disgusted at her style of tankary, it was NOT (to her) how Nishizumi style should be done. But since Miho won the tournament she proved the 'new' or rather older style was not only effective, but still proper Nisizumi style.

* In the ''Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu'' manga spin-off, Erika gave off something of a BrokenPedestal vibe when talking to Miho. She accused her of abandoning those who had worked so hard beside her in Kuromorimine's Senshado Team. Erika also noted that Miho appearing as the captain of another team dealt a blow to Kuromorimine's morale; it was one thing for Miho to abandon Senshado due to her guilt; it was quite another for her to defect to another team.

\n* From a purely logical point of view, Women are smaller on average than men. Given that making the crew space smaller means a smaller overall tank, well, do the math. GUP-verse quite likely was less sexist from the start, Men and Women both enlisted, and it's quite likely that both were, atleast initially, before tankery culture really established itself, were given assigned to tanks, but as the war wore on, and tanks were built with crew size restrictions that women fit under more easily, Tanking was seen as more of a woman's skill than a man's. The Military itself is still more egalitarian, but tank crews are still dominantly women, while tankery has become almost entirely a woman's sport.




There will also be a Nishizumi family dinner where they, after much arguing, decide on an exhibition free-for-all match between all three of them, or alternatively, Shiho vs. her daughters.

! Rather than disarming and de-militarizing Japan, the United States focused on Japanese Nationalism and Xenophobia.

It's almost ''certain'' that Japan is much more militaristic than in our world. At the same time, just ''look'' at how ridiculously multicultural the academies are.

* Viking Fisheries High School: Their tankery program probably utilizes Swedish tanks.

! Shiho will continue on the path of grudging respect and acceptance of Miho in season 2 and Maho will help her along

Not only has she displayed a rare moment of appreciation for her younger daughter when she was alone (which means she didn't have to put up an act for anyone, so it was genuine), she has also stepped in to give her school another chance to be saved. While Maho will remain the "true" heir of the Nishizumi doctrine, Miho will be seen, instead of a defector, as a founder of her own school of Sensha-do thought and a [[WorthyOpponent worthy rival]] rather than a pest to be destroyed.

Added DiffLines:


! Mika is actually Alice's older sister.

First, the most obvious parallel is that put side by side with Alice and her mother, Mika bears a great physical resemblance to them, with brown hair and eyes and similar eye shape. In addition, Mika has appeared in official art where the only other characters featured are Alice, Miho, and Maho, further implying a sisterly connection. Finally, Mika's fighting style greatly resembles how the Shimada-style of Senshado works, by relying on surprise, lightning attacks, and unconventional tactics to catch the enemy off guard, which she demonstrates during Operation Kill Serve.

If true, it would put Alice and Mika as direct parallels to Miho and Maho. Like Miho and Maho, Alice and Mika would be heirs to a long and respected Senshado tradition. However, the difference lies in Maho stepping up to take the mantle as heir to the Nishizumi-style to protect Miho, while Mika ran away and left Alice to inherit the Shimada style instead. Separation from the strict Shimada lifestyle could by why Mika is so laid back and carefree, and why she's enrolled in the extremely poor Continuation High School similar to how Miho is enrolled in the financially troubled Ooarai.

\n** POSSIBLY ''Confirmed'' by the movie, in which the [[spoiler:High School All Stars team on 30 mixed, overall inferior tanks holds their own against better tanks with far superior skills, in single tank victory, because their mixed status lets them cover each others weaknesses]]
