They also differ by countries. Different countries are represented by their respective flag: American, British, Chinese, French, German, Soviet, etc. American and British tanks typically have easily remembered names, often implying (or being) a surname. French tanks are interchangeably named for surnames and typical vehicle names. German tanks have names in German, naturally, like Leichtrakktor. Soviet tanks usually have a one- or two-letter prefix, while Chinese can be any of these.
