They're a thing, they just don't get much focus.
I believe Tank Witches might actually be more common in-universe, as land strikers require less magic to use (which allows the user to focus their magic on bigger guns and better shields), but of course they are useless against flying Neuroi.
Land Strikers are basically giant metal legs, the witches can walk around with them or use the deployable wheels to dash.
The series focuses on international Joint Fighter Wings, which are only for aerial Witches, while Tank Witches mostly stick to their respective countries. The girl in the OP was originally a Tank Witch for the Fuso Army. Aurora now leads a support unit for the 502nd, who's main job is to carry Nipa's stuff back whenever she crashes.

Does it ever explain why they never wear bottoms? I assume it's so they can get into and out of the strikers. I mean, I know the *actual* reason is just so they can show their pantsu all the time, but I mean canon.

I stole this but it's worth stealing.

You just don't get it, do you? Try to remember the time when you first watched it. You fire up the first ep, ready for some good fanservicey fun, maybe a couple of pantsushots here and there, a couple lewd jokes, some innuendo, all set to the backdrop of not-WWII. But what's this? Genderbent ace pilots? It's okay, you've seen more hardcore shit. Slight yuribait, okay, I mean everyone does that. But why aren't they wearing pants? Ep 1, nobody wears pants. Nobody bats an eyelid. Ep 2, ep 3, ep 4, the story steadily progresses, and you find yourself charmed and endeared by the cast, and the seiyuus are great, but still, no pants. Never directly addressed. Never explained in a neat infodump. They're just no wearing any pants. It's a bizarre alternative reality in which there are witches that don't wear pants. Why? How is this possible? Who allowed this? And then at length you come understand why. It's all being done for you. You. For your pleasure, and your satisfaction, the norms were casually broken and decidedly discarded, and then you realize that the minds that conjured this delightfully cheesy scenario are so like your own. You feel the unseen presence behind the idea, you feel the ocean of the imaginative mind of your fellow man slowly stir to present the glorious lack of pants in the most complete way, gratuitously emphasized by masterful shots and wonderfully contrived situations, as the means and the end in and of itself, and you feel, at peace. You feel at home, among your equals, you feel one with them, the ones that present the beautiful spectacle of no pants, and the ones enjoying it along with you, all, as one, united, linked, chained together by the inherent similarity of their daydreaming minds, all as one, one and the same. We are.

This whole concept is kind of weird. Like half of the original two seasons were SoL shenanigans in the first place and seeing it in this low-budged CGI omake kind of thing is a bit jarring even compared to Brave Witches. I should rewatch that sometime to see if they managed to make it look passable in the BDs.

This is still cute though.

I am still watching and loving it. It's a well-made parody spin-off. My only complaint is the wide differences in spotlight time among the different witches, but it's better for the staff to follow whatever good jokes they have than to feel forced to spend equal time on all witches.

Japs just record it or download off perfect dark or whatever. There's plenty of anime streaming on niconico douga and other web services too. It's not some perpetual 1980s land. And CR also releases discs. You'll see their disgusting orange bunghole all over shit if you can manage find a surviving video store somewhere.
A bit ironic now you're talking about CR like it's a good thing when it was the studio who did the first season of witches that originally sold their soul to that devil. Not that I'm much better having comfortably settled into the HorribleStatusQuo.

There's official anime streaming for modern shows on niconico. Jap Amazon too maybe, I don't know for sure.

As for illegal streaming. You can find plenty of Japanese videos on youtube or niconico that make use of English or Spanish subbed anime which likely comes from Western streaming sites. Just off the top of my head, this series of videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrcP30yoREs). You can find all the rest on niconico since I don't think all of them are archived on youtube.
