 '''Ammo Rack''' - ammunition storage, the function is clear: To store and to protect ammunition. However many compromises have to be made with regards to the amount of ammunition, thus ammo rack is always a weak part of any tank. '''Ammo Rack''' - ammunition storage, the function is clear: To store and to protect ammunition.

?'''Armor''' - Basic attribute of tank, armor grants it protection from enemy fire. Armor has usually varying thickness and slopes and is usually split into front armor (incl. '''glacis'''), side armor (often split between upper and lower with different thicknesses/slopes) and rear armor.+'''Armor''' - Basic attribute of tank, armor provides protection against the enemy fire. Armor has usually varying thickness and slopes and is usually divided into front armor (incl. '''glacis'''), side armor (often split between upper and lower sections with different thicknesses/slopes) and rear armor.
  
?'''Armor Skirts''' - Additional armor designed to protect weaker-protected parts of tanks, usually hull sides. Introduced by German designers to protect primarily against 14.5mm antitank rifle projectiles and 76mm HE shells, it was found this additional armor is able, in good conditions, to damage capped AP projectiles (see '''APC''', '''APCBC''' and '''APBC''') and to degrade penetration of HEAT weapons (though at angles around 90°, it actually augmented the penetration in some cases).+'''Armor Skirts''' - Additional armor designed to protect weaker-protected parts of tanks, usually hull sides.

?'''Bow Machinegun''' - Forward-firing auxillary weapon, meant to give more protection to the tank at short ranges. Usually mounted in a flexible ball mount to provide atleast some field of fire, however since it was generally used for suppression fire, some tanks mounted bow machinegun in a fixed mount, fired by driver and set to hit the ground 200-300 meters in front of the vehicle.+'''Bow Machinegun''' - Forward-firing axillary weapon intended to protect the tank from infantry at short ranges.

?'''Chassis''' - General term used for all parts of hull connected to engine/transmission/suspension. Often vehicles use the chame chassis, even though they serve completely different purposes.+'''Chassis''' - General term used for all parts of hull connected to engine/transmission/suspension. Often vehicles use the same chassis, even though they serve completely different purposes.
  
?'''Engine''' - The core of the tank, providing power and source of devastating fires. In WWII, usually rear-mounted. Petrol engines were considered more flammable than diesel engines, but the difference was not all that important usually when a shell hit the tank.+'''Engine''' - The core of the tank, providing power and source of devastating fires.

?'''Fuel Tank''' - Storage of the fuel for '''engine'''. Always source of trouble, as it is storage of highly flammable material - usually found whereever there is enough free space and still not enough, some tanks mounted also external fuel tanks. Diesel fuel is somewhat harder to set on fire than petrol, but to compensate it is also harder to put off once it starts burning. Damaged fuel tank raises the risk of fire on further hits.+'''Fuel Tank''' - Storage of the fuel for the '''engine'''.

Diesel fuel is somewhat harder to catch fire than petrol, but in turn, such fire is also harder to put. Damaged fuel tank increases the risk of fire on subsequent hits.
  
 '''Fenders''' - Thin metallic protection of tracks, serving mostly to catch mud flying off them. '''Fenders''' - Thin metallic protection of tracks, serving mostly to catch mud flying off them.
