Most jets/planes/attack helicopters will always just be referred to as CAS due to their similar role.
The only ones for which people use the nicknames are the out of the ordinary or the famous ones like the A-10, the Apache, the Cobra and of course the Hind to name a couple.

Through land vehicles are usually named by their nickname (or their official designation such as the T90) and sometimes nicknames are made for some vehicles such as the Beast. Through there are still a lot of vehicles that have difficult to pronounce names without a nickname which are just referred to by it's role/size.

Point is, if someone doesn't know the name they will prefer to use either their own nickname for it or the function of the vehicle. If we would stamp the military nickname knowledge in to everybodies minds they would still rather just use their own nicknames or designations.

The only nick-name I have is "fake-spandrel" for the WZ550(Chinese ATGM vehicle).


Dont question the wikipedia! Just because it reports different things on different languages does not make it unreliable source!

Well, being cramped and lightly armored leads to a lot of problems, fires being one of them.
