I call Leichttraktor the "LOLtraktor" (Pure coincidence, I swear  :Smile-hiding: )
Panzer II "Deimos"
Panzer III "Backstabber" Don't ask me why  :Smile-izmena:
Panzer IV "no-name" mounted with the 10.5cm gun, "The mini-derpist"
VK3601 "Walter" or "Champion"
Tiger "Sharp shooter"
T-26 "Spitter", cuz of the nice damage  :Smile_great:

my VK3601H as "Skinny Tiger" because it looks like an anorexic tiger.

Lowe "Pillow Fluffer" because the gun has excellent penetration but has less ouch.

churchill (back in beta), Boattank

T1/M6 "battle fridge"

M24 Chaffee "bobbles" due to the second upgraded turret.

Panther "Kitty"

umm... let me correct you: The Pain Train = Der Zug der Pein.

SU-85     -  Borscht Blaster
M41       -  Long Duk Bomb
T1        -  Boxcar Willie
M4a3E8    -  Arty Choker

I'm reserving "Armadillo" for my Fatty if I decide to take the M4 Sherman out of mothballs.

It's Der because Zug (train) is masculine in German. Pein is feminine, yes, but is the genitive to Zug in this case, so the 'the' points to Zug in that case.

KV w/ 152mm: Thor -> shells hit like Mjolnir.
T34 w/ 57mm: Rocky -> its the underdog that beats the big guys.
T50: Zerg -> If you've seen 4 of them bum rush the enemy you'll understand.
SU-14: The Battleship -> School Bus isn't as fun a name.
M5 Stuart: Yakety Sax -> Tune plays in my head while i drive it.

I've not named my tanks specifically, though I have dubbed the PzIII/IV 'WaltzPanzer', and the T82 'ScootCannon'.

I have however, named the .50cal AAMG on some American tanks 'Johnny'.

If it was easier to type I'd refer to every E-50 as this, but as it is I'll just stick to giving the name to mine once I buy it (hopefully today): Black Tiger
Fits quite well, as the E-50 is pretty much a simplified hybrid of the Panther II and King Tiger.
