Armoured Vehicle Recognition Acronym?

#1
Good evening Chaps, just a quick one,
I am doing a short presentation on the Challenger Two for my MTQ2 (OTC) exam, and wondering if anyone could remind me of the acronym for remembering the key parts of an armoured vehicle when attempting to identify it. If i recall correctly, there was a similar one for aircraft as well,
thanks in advance

Presumably along the same lines as "Tap, tap, tap. Bail out, Chieftain"?

THAT = Turret, Hull, Armour and Tracks?

Tracks? implies is it wheel or tracked? I would always stress for my guys to make a point of counting the road wheels. A wheel count can make all the difference when ID'ing a side on view between the likes of an early Leo 2 and a Japo Type 90 - they look almost identicle except for the nip just having th 6 wheels for e.g.
