Easy 8 refers to the Sherman M4A3E8
nicknamed easy 8 due to its suspension being a much "Easier" ride than its predecessor.

Edit to add,
Yeah, the "E8" designation possibly had something to do with the "easy 8" nickname also.
Like with the "GP" becoming the "Jeep" there are several potential reasons for the name.
My grandfather was a crewman on an M4, and he told me it was due to the easy ride.
He says that the guys used "Echo", not "easy" for the letter "E".
::shrug::: Dunno. take your pick.

Originally the VK was called that, but when the Hotchkiss was discovered to be as awesome as it is... well that changed.  ;)  Honestly forgot the VK was ever called that until just now.

What are those completely bullocks abbrevations? What has KIA to do with the game? And Loltraktor describing low-tier light tanks? From what times? What are you people smoking? This is topic where you post actual meanings of words, not come up with random stuff just to mislead people or to popularize your false meanings.

I use RT for Artie, Arty, Artillery .... but SPG would work too. Fewer letters the better .... no?

There is a thread in the beta section I believe as this has been discussed before.

Really? So 'Bend Over Here It Komes Again'.

Actually I think a player uses that as a name and I laughed to myself when I first saw it.

I was always under the impression that, "derp" meant a fail, or just a moment of stupidity? a screwup?
http://www.urbandict...e.php?term=derp
It really isn't an alternate word for, "retard" or the like. Just saying...

how about autocannons? Low-tier, small-caliber guns that fire fast but deal low damage. (eg, 2cm flak.)

That would be me failing at spelling. So BOHICA it is.
