What does a German self-propelled gun named after a cricket have in relation to George Foreman?

 

Anyway, I call the "Conway" British T9 Tank Destroyer (the turreted one) the "Kenway" after the guy from ACIV: BF. I'm surprised almost no one played it though; it's decent.

 

I've played it. It's alright I suppose. Currently going through Unity right now, in French of course.

Terribly sorry for necroing, but I have new nicknames:

-Ikv Swedish TD series: Ikeavagn; after their abbreviation combined with a popular Swedish furniture brand.

-WZ-120-1G FT: Mao's Sickle; similar to Stalin's Hammer in appearance and gameplay, and I had to make a joke about the most popular symbol of communism as well as their two most notorious leaders. Alternatively, the Type-59-54, as it has a distant relationship to the SU-122-54.

-SU-100y: The Fridge: My friend calls this tank in WT this. I personally think boombox fits better.

-Caernarvon: Carnivore, as a pun and to avoid tongue-twisting.

Nicknames, more of them please!

Covenanter= Covvie, as a pun and a fun way to refer to it. Also,the tank is quite the cute guy.

STG= Sturmgewehr, since it's abbreviation resembles the German abbreviation of the word, as in Stg 44 or Stg 77 (the Steyr AUG in Austrian naming parlor). Also, STormGuard, after the unique camo version.

Probably because of the original stock turret (now removed), which was literally shaped like a house.

TOG II: I personally call it Banana tank, because it just looks like one.

 

I can pronounce the M4A1 Revalorise correctly, so I don't use any nicknames for that. 

 

 

Also; I call the HWK 12 the H&K 12, after the famous German firearms brand.
