Girls und Panzer (2012-2013)

Girls Und Panzer (ガールズ&パンツァー Gāruzu ando Pantsā) is a anime series that aired from October 9, 2012 to March 25, 2013.

In an alternate reality, "tankery," a sort of paintball with tanks using live ammunition that somehow never kills anyone, has become a form of sport. Sensha-dō, meaning the "way of the tank", has risen in popularity among women and has been running since the 1920s. Enter Miho Nishizumi, a new transfer student to the Ōarai Girls' Academy. Coming from a family of distinguished Sensha-dō tradition, she transfers to Ōarai, a school not having practised the sport in 20 years, to escape from tankery due to a past event, only for the school to bring back their Sensha-dō program and her two new friends, Saori Takebe and Hana Isuzu, to become very interested in it.

Despite her reasons to leave Sensha-dō, she agrees to attend when urged by the student council and touched by her friends' faith in her. Along the way, Miho picks up Yukari Akiyama and Mako Reizei as friends too. The Ōarai Sensha-dō group then began to salvage tanks left behind by the previously established Sensha-dō organization. After restoring a Panzer 38(t), a Type 89 I-Go, a StuG III, a M3 Lee, and a Panzer IV, the Ōarai Sensha-dō group are organized into teams to begin their competitive lives in the Sensha-dō community, with Miho as the team leader due to her experience.

Miho and her friends use the Panzer IV with her as the commander, Saori as the communicator, Hana as the gunner, Yukari as the loader, and Mako as the driver. With the team organized, the biggest challenge now awaits Miho: bringing the no-name school of Ōarai into the championship of the 63rd National High School Sensha-dō Tournament against other high-tier schools!

M16 rifle series

While Yukari tells Erwin a story about a joint JSDF / US military exercise, US soldiers are seen with a variant of the M16 rifle series. As an aside, Erwin is Hippo Team's (co-)commander and radio operator, however their team doesn't make any further appearance on this page, as their Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III) has no firearms.

M16 - 5.56x45mm
US Soldiers in one of Yukari's explanation montages with M16s. (OVA #5)

AK-47

In an explanation of the American MREs, Yukari is showing why the MREs are called "Meals Rejected by the Enemy", with soldiers holding stockless AK-47s.

AK-47 - 7.62x39mm
Soldiers with stockless AKs rejecting Yukari's MREs. It's unclear if Yukari is supposed to have a holstered pistol or if it's something else. (OVA #2)

Unknown Assault Rifle

In an explanation of military rations, one scene shows soldiers eating with two holding assault rifles. Though, not enough details seem to shown to make out the exact kind.

Soldiers eating rations by a fire. Closer inspection on the left two soldiers shows the weapon seems to have a triangular front sight on the left guy, but has a sliding stock of a HK on the guy to his right. (OVA #2)

Machine Guns

MG34

The WWII German tanks appearing in the series are all equipped with coaxial and hull mounted MG34s. Kuromorimine Girls High School all-German tank force (Tiger I, Tiger II, Panthers, JagdPanther, etc.) all have tank-mounted MG34s as well.

MG34 Panzerlauf with stock fitted - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Saori, Anglerfish Team's radio operator, mans a MG34 without its stock (as is normal when the Panzerlauf is mounted) inside a Panzer IV. Part of the brass catcher seems to be missing here, since if fired like this the gun would simply cough out spent casings into the right-hand wall of the hull. While it may appear she is holding a second gun, this is actually the extra pistol grip and second trigger group of the hull-mounted version: the arm going to a piece of metal on her head is also part of the gun mount, intended to stop the radio operator's head bouncing around when using the optical sight on the hull machine gun while the tank is moving.

A MG34 with a stock (which is abnormal when the Panzerlauf is mounted, as noted above) inside Erika Itsumi's Tiger II. Note the feed tray to carry the belt from the ammo pouch mounted on the right-hand side (tank's right, left in the shot) of the turret to the belt feed opening on the MG34's left side: the right side of this feed tray acts as a brass deflector, with a catching bag attached to it.

In November 21, 2015, a movie for the anime, Girls und Panzer der Film, was released in Japan. The film is a direct sequel to the anime show. Though announced in 2013 and initially slated for a 2014 release, but was pushed back twice to Summer of 2015 to the final release date.

Maxim Machine Gun

A single shot of the command tent shows a "Motor Scout" parked next to it. This 1889 quadricycle carried a .303 Maxim machine gun and shield, 1000 rounds of ammo and 120 miles of fuel, making it the first armored fighting vehicle. It was designed and built by British manufacturer Frederick Reginald Simms, but never entered service: it was, however, the ancestor of wheeled armored cars.

Who would have brought this to the match, Darjeeling?
