Katyusha (Катюша, Kachūsha) is one of the supporting characters of Girls und Panzer.

ProfileEdit

Katyusha is a student from Pravda Girls High School and the overall commander of the school's Sensha-dou team; she operates a Soviet T-34-85.

AppearanceEdit

Katyusha is a girl with a short blonde hair and a pair of light blue eyes. She has a very diminutive stature, making her age hard to determine. However, she is the commander of her school's team, so it can only be assumed she is 18 (3rd year) like the other school commanders.

PersonalityEdit

Katyusha is well known for her arrogant and childlike personality; arguably because of her small height (which she raises by having Nonna giving her piggyback rides), she feels she has to 'stand above' anyone else, friend or foe alike. While her arrogance is coupled to her tactical skill, it sometimes might get the better of her (as her request for a surrender arguably gave time for Ooarai to assess the situation and execute a breakthrough, squandering her advantage); also, she does not hide well her emotions, openly showing her anger, and breaking down crying right after her defeat (although she denied that).  She seems very close to Nonna, with which she is seen almost always.

She has a habit of calling Miho "Pirozhki", which is Russian for 'pie'.

BackgroundEdit

Katyusha led the Pravda Sensha-dou team against Ooarai Girls High School during the semi-final round of the Sensha-dou Competition (and it's implied she was in command last year, when Miho's actions gained her school a victory); her strategy of luring the Ooarai tanks to an ambush almost worked out and Ooarai's tanks were forced to hide into a dilapidated church to escape the onslaught. After that, Katyusha offered them surrender conditions, among which the condition that they would have to bow in submission to her; however, after learning that losing the match would cause Ooarai's closure, Miho refused. While recuperating, Miho sent some scouts to locate the position of all of Pravda's tanks and they resumed the match. Katyusha expected that the whole Ooarai team would chase their flag tank or possibly strike at the weak point she deliberately left in her line, but Ooarai's tanks attacked their vanguard, stunning her. She then instructed Nonna to take out Ooarai's flag tank, while Ooarai's Anglerfish Team and Hippo Team pushed into the town in order to corner Pravda's flag tank. The two flag tanks from both sides were hit at the same moment, but miraculously Ooarai's flag tank (Duck Team) survived, leading to Pravda's defeat. After this, Katyusha revealed a surprising grace in defeat, openly acknowledging Miho's prowess and shaking her hand.

Together with Nonna, she later appeared as a spectator in the Finals.

TriviaEdit

  • Her favorite flower is Chamomile and her favorite tank is the Soviet KV-2.
  • Her name comes from the Katyusha rocket launcher fielded by the Soviet Union during WWII. The truck on which Katyusha and Nonna arrive to greet the Ooarai team before the battle is equipped with it. The rocket launcher was named by the famous traditional song "Katyusha" (Song they were singing at the beginning of the semi-final round)
