They were watching Kelly's Heroes. It's an old war movie in 1970 about a group of American soldier who tried to rob a bank far behind enemy line.

The scene they were watching is around 1:56:00 when Oddball and Kelly, the main character, shoot down a Tiger, the same tank with Kuromorimine's tank.

Notes:

  • The girls seems to use the same tactic against Elefant, they manages to outmaneuver Elefant, and shoot it down from behind in a narrow road. Initially, they shouted, "Operation: Kelly's Heroes".
  • When Yukari infiltrated Saunders, she called herself "Sgt. Oddball, third class" from the "6th Armored Division." Which I believe came from Oddball from Kelly's Heroes
