Russian term or phrase: nominative/accusative plural of traktor
Just want to know what the plural is. Trying to confirm that it is 'traktora'.

Explanation:
I think that in the case of these words which can take a plural in "a", this is often a less common alternative than one in "ы", and I think that is true here, although there are some words like "поезда" for which it is always "a". But the opinion of a native Russian speaker would be worth more than mine.
