Do some of the names for the mercenary tanks sound like they could be a wrestler name?

I think they could be, they've got just the right amount of cheese to be used in such a way, but what mercenary name would you have on a wrestler were you the one giving names and not taking them in tanks?

 

Plaguebringer sounds about right for that purpose. :D

A Tag team combo with Ramrod would definitely be nasty.

The nicknames aren't out of place with real world nicknaming examples and all nations likely had nicknames for combat vehicles. 

Fat Man

Priest

Big Bertha

Easy 8

Honey 

The M4 had unfortunate nicknames like the Ronson and Tommy Cooker. 

They are just a smidgeon of the known ones.  Tank commanders and crews probably gave their vehicles nicknames too. 

 

The nicknames reasonably emulate reality, the design elements of the vehicles are are pure fantasy.

Problem is, these idiotic fantasy tanks were not/are not real tanks ...

How is that a problem? It’s certainly not new or exclusive to Merc tanks.

There was a show called  avatar the last airbender on Nickelodeon on a few years ago.  Go look up the fight between toph and the boulder on youtube.

majority may be fantasy but some designs like the big top or plaguebringer are based in reality

The name of one is actually the same term used for a portable bathroom bucket for people who camp or woods hunt.

 

If you're a wrestler and want that name, you might want to rethink that life choice. 

 

:D
