The German word for Tank is Panzer, hence why every "Tank" is called "Panzer".

Agreed. In 1942 German tanks were named after predatory cats. Tiger and Panther = panzers. Germany's Leopard II of today is a panzer. Daimler-Benz built the most panzers for the German Army in WW2, while Chrysler was the prime contractor on the Sherman. Nowadays the two have teamed up to form Daimler-Chrysler for peaceful purposes. Fiat, Baretta, Daihatsu, and Mitsubishi are other examples of Axis contractors which survived the political regimes they once served.
