Didn't have any idea where this fit, either the Gameplay section or the off-topic section, but nevertheless, here it is.
This is a thread where you can discuss all about tank nicknames; whether or not a tank deserves a nickname, when you have a nickname to give to tanks, anything related to fan nicknames on tanks (like Bert The Avenger for the FV304, or Stalin's Hammer for the SU-122-44).
I'll start; I have at some nicknames I use for some armored vehicles I played on the live/test server.
Bishop- Viper the Dust Demon (I played the Bishop first during the 9.17.1 test server a few months back, and I loved it; I put a "Viper" sticker and "Dust Demon" sticker on opposite sides of the tank and that nickname has since stuck with me). Also "Crippled FV304" since it's basically just a slow FV304.
Object 252U: Defender of the Front (a faint reference to the Defender camo, and because this is such an infernal thing to penetrate the frontal armor, although none of my tanks have more than 194 pen, t I hear even some Tier 10s are also having problems getting through the front, and if even T10s have problems going through the front, what does that say about T6-T9?)
AT-15A: AT-15 "Armor": 225mm+ of frontal armor at T7 is crazy, and it only sees up to T8. Only TDs and a bunch of other tanks with over 240mm penetration will get through it (discounting weakspots), and since it only sees up to T8 the 171 pen isn't so much of a problem, especially with the heavenly gun handling (fast aiming time, excellent gun accuracy and lightning-fast RoF) it gets.
