I assume they meant "Panzer Four", as in the Panzerkampfwagen IV (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzer_IV) ?

The loltraktor is just a nickname.

'Panzer vor!' is a phrase that originated - atleast for the purpose of WoT - in the anime 'Girls und Panzer'. It's originally german and means 'tank forward' or 'tank, ahead'. In WoT It's basically meant as 'drive!' or 'let's go!', a phrase to indicate the start of a battle, as well as a somewhat discrete way of letting other GuP fans know that they're one as well.

Leichttraktor is called Loltraktor because it's tiny, awkward, laughably awful, yet incredibly fun, and 'loltraktor' is a lot easier to say for english speaking people than 'leichttraktor'.

Panzer vor = german for 'armor(tanks) forward'  i.e. 'Move out!'
currently popular because of anime 'Girls und Panzer'.

Wouldn't it be "Panzer, vowarts!", or "Panzer, sich vorn!" ?

Panzer, nach vorne!

Panzer is German for Armour or Tank. Vor is forward or march. Loltractor came around because its a funny looking tank, also its easier for Non Germans to say than Leichtraktor(its proper name.)

I get a  kick out of that series.  The early episodes reminded me of 'noobie days' in WoT.

ahahaha!!! I love these :D

I'm definitely a guilty party, cause I think I say this at the beginning of EVERY battle now.

"PANZER VOR!!!"

It's my way to say hi. And seeing if anyone else there has seen the show too. It's like.. the two-word phrase for bonding ^^

Plus it's boring when no one speaks for 30 seconds...

I have. Achtung-Panzer is almost a blueprint for the next 4-6 years. Hitler is quoted as saying, "If I had known your production figured (in Achtung-Panzer) were correct I never would have started this war!"

No kidding sherlock.
