You are a fighter pilot of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, and you're currently squaring off with a Martian heavy-fighter ("Steam Sled") and a long, needle-shaped interceptor (dubbed "the Prick" by typical GI imaginations.) On your wing is an unidentified P-38 Lightning with a seemingly psionic pilot descended from Argus himself. Your radar operator is still trying to find the Lightning pilot's frequency, but the Martians have paired off and are turning to execute the merge. You have a few options:>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning takes on.>Fall back and cover the Lightning's tail.>Something else? Specify.
>>20153146>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.This guy seems like he can handle himself well enough.
>>20153146still waiting on planefag
>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.
Thatch weave the martian thatch weave? Sounds like a plan. Just make sure the Lightning doesn't get fucked.
Awww yeah.>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.
>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning takes on.
>>20153146Is that a real gun?
>Fall back and cover the Lightning's tail.Cover the guy
Oh my god it's SWQ what the fuck am I supposed to do?Shit umm...>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.
>>20153146>Fall back and cover the Lightning's tail.Were here to provide support, not get kills.
>>20153146Meanwhile, Minna's thighs.Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.

>>20153203Yup The Second Century is super retarded
>>20153219>Latch onto Minna's thighs
>>20153260How do I buy that gun? Looks cumbersome as fuck but I bet it'd be fun to shoot or atleast a cool trophy piece for my coffee table.
>>20153146This guy better be fucking Robin Olds.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_Olds>Eject drop tanks before diving on German planes>forget to switch over to regular fuel tanks>engines die in mid dive>give no fucks and continue anyways>score 3 kills
>>20153295...Robin Olds got turned into our sister, mate.
>>20153146>Not having Shirley M1911 master race>2012
>>20153305So following SWQ logic we are Robin Olds?
The lightning pilot is the dude from Thunder and Lightning. Yay sub-story crossovers?
>Latch onto the fighter the Lightning doesn't take.we are now officially hero. so act like one...with a deadwish
>>20153328I assume thats a toy.
Robin is our sister. I believe she's currently on our wing.
Fuck yeah, Strike Witches Quest!I feel like double-teaming whoever the Lightning takes is probably the better option...unless we're feeling cocky, in which case go for the other.And it's usually safe to assume that we're feeling rather cocky.
Let the faster fighter take point. Keep his ass safe with those turrets!

You line your nose up on the Steam-Sled as the Lightning squares off with the 'Prick. It's developing into a classic 2v2 engagement. The enemy fighters roar in, and soon you're jinking and jiving to keep ahead of any snap-shots the bandits might assay. You've got mere moments till long guns-range. How will you merge?>Straight-through, vertical/chandelle reversal.>Straight-through, Split-S or low yo-yo reversal. >Build horizontal separation before the merge and go for a hard turn. >Build vertical separation and maneuver for an energy advantage. >Other?
>>20153608I could buy one of each then transfer the design to the real one! It's possible! Right....? guys? right?
>Fall back and cover the Lightning's tail.
>>20153617>Other?Question lack of tripcode.
>>20153415I have to imagine the logic behind this was."You know, how do we make a 1911 more killy?""Strap another one to the side?""GENIUS!"

High Yoyo and Fuck the alien in the ass. Also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_combat_manoeuvring
>>20153696Yeah, that's mybad.The "merge" is when you and the enemy fighter first pass each other, after approaching each other head-on. Naturally you both turn to fight the other. In WWI this is what resulted in fighters "chasing each other's tails" in a circle, which looks exactly like what happens half the time when two dogs get into a fight.Hence, "dogfight."Your options are to do a half-loop or a climbing turn, losing airspeed but using the pull of gravity to tighten your turn. Or you can do the same thing, but underneath (an upside-down half-loop) losing altitude but gaining airspeed, which is good.Or you can try to get some distance from the other guy, so you don't pass almost wing-to-wing, giving you room to start turning into his ass-end.

You grip the yoke with white-knuckled strength as the steam-sled barrels in, his invisible cross-hairs itching over your skin. You yank the yoke into your belly as you lean on the rudder-pedals, twisting the Widow skyward. No longer able to resist, the Martian noses up for the snap shot, purple tracers zipping by your canopy as you roll over the top and pull your fighter towards the ground. You gained just enough separation to gain advantage as you pull your fighter through a loop. The Martian followed his foolish climb by pulling it into a loop of his own, and thanks to your separation you pull onto his six by the time you're both finishing your first loop and climbing skyward for a second. He breaks to one side, changing his loop into a steep diving turn as he comes over the top. Ten bucks says he'll develop the maneuver into a barrel roll as he pulls out, to throw you off.>Latch on and follow through? >Grab altitude and pounce on him? >Extend away and size up the situation?>Other?
>>20153998>>Grab altitude and pounce on him
>>20153998>YOU'RE ON, BUST EM
rolled 1 = 1>>20153758You barrel on and push the red button, activating WEP to gain more energy, pulling back on the stick and climbing with your fat cow of a beloved Widow.The intercom tells you to snap roll it. You obey, despite what the manual says, because fuck, PILOT. GNOME PILOT.The intercom barks at you again not to snap roll it, but to snap roll it. You snaproll again, and the other fighter drops back a bit more.The third time, you instead have your ears bombarded with an icy, calm "Snap out of it!" You blink, finding yourself halfway through a snap-roll, but with no WEP- after all, that's activated by pushing the throttle through a safety wire, not a big red button. What were you thinking? The laughter of a martian echoes as Sean madly manipulates the controls, audible through the intercom, trying to keep the ALIENS from killing you with THEIR minds.
>>20153998I have no idea. But I see the word pounce which can only mean bounce.>Grab altitude and pounce on him
>Grab altitude and pounce on him? Pounce and bounce

These martian psychic attacks are increasing with frequency. Maybe they have some kind of structure amplifying their abilities? Or perhaps they worked out how to do it normally and are just now levying their attacks? In any case, get TESLA on a solution.
As the Martian breaks into the predictable barrel roll, you haul into a vicious yo-yo maneuver, climbing almost straight-up. As your fighter quavers at the edge of stall speed, you stand on the rudders and execute a nice Immelman-slash-Hammerhead to fall sideways, towards earth again. Looking up through your canopy you espy your quarry again, about to enter the bottom of his second barrel roll. Slamming your radiators shut, you unload the controls for velocity, aiming at his predictable location. From the heavens you plummet like an arrow of divine wrath... and thumb the cannon triggers. Your quarry reacquires you at the last second and rolls hard, barely twisting and slide-slipping away from your thundering cannons. You blast past him, diving fast. >Dive away, extend? >Zoom climb and re-engage? >Other?
>OtherWe is the P-38?
>>20154313>Zoom climb and re-engageWhere's Robin? She should be on our wing and able to take a shot at the steam-sled.
>>20154313I keep seeing that picture. Always with that title.I don't get it. Would someone explain?
>>20154164Now that I think of it... the P-61 manual stipulates there's a butan on the throttle that activates the WEP. I dunno if the P-61 had "reserve boost," 110% power, for take-off and such. Guarded by a safety wire across the throttle channel. I think it did... and of course in some early-war fighters that "extra" boost WAS the WEP system... I doubt the P-61 had that, though, since she used Double Wasps. Early-war, they put a few Double Wasps on test-stands and ran them all-out for, like, a week, and concluded that the full output of the engine could be used almost constantly without damage, instead of only in brief sints as emergency power. So it was written and so it was done. I'd have to read that manual again.

Re-engage For the re-engage god
You throw your heavy fighter into a steep zoom-climb, rapidly trading the kinetic energy in the frame of your massive fighter into upwards acceleration."Long-six, nine-hundred yards!" Sean calls up to you. Shit. The little weasel must've rolled inverted and dove after you almost as soon as you passed him. Wat do?>Begin barrel-rolling.>Begin scissors.>Drag him into the lower air.>Try to out-climb him.

Little is known of how Martian craft actually FLY. They have no apparent wings, as such, and only some of them have the "lifting body" fuselages the engineers speak of. What you DO know is they move in ways subtly strange to anybody with innate feel for how aircraft maneuver - they're slippery, quite slippery. And they generally turn like a bastard. But for whatever reason, they can't roll quite as well. Their exact capabilities are unknown, and in the hands of an aggressive, experienced pilot - like the one on your ass right now - previously unseen performance could emerge and bite you in the ass. But if there's one thing you're confident in, it's that the P-61 can spin like a mad bitch when she wants to.And you?You want to.
Listen to me and listen good Comrayde.Unless you like watching little girls strap on airplane legs and never wear any pants ever in between bouts of KAWAII UGU~U and pantsu-laden fanservice, Strike Witches is not for you.With that said, you should read Strike Witches Quest.

You break right, into a desperate, energy-wasting guns-defense turn, and hold it long enough for Sean to start screaming horrible threats about soul-fucking you in hell before you dip the nose and reverse - slowly. Naturally the bandit out-turns you handily, and you reverse direction again, rolling the P-61 slower then a pregnant sow. The steam-sled keeps on you easily, and once your airspeed drops below 200 MPH, you declare yourself officially "slow." Which means you've got the son-of-a-bitch right where you want him. Just as you feel the 'sled's crosshairs creeping over your skin, you snap the P-61 into a maximum-performance roll, the spoilerons providing instant feedback at the low speeds. Your Black Widow reverses directions on a dime, leaving the 'sleds purple tracers chewing thin air. You dive a bit as you reverse again, to spoil the 'sleds snap-shot, and soon you've reversed four or five times in quick succession. "He's yo- nevermind," Sean calls forward, and you grin wickedly. At low speed the 'sled can't counter by simply popping into the vertical, and it doesn't have the acceleration to just step on the gas and go from 0 to climbing in no time flat. He's low, slow, and in your domain. With almost supernatural instinct you sense the Martian's grasped his situation and will try to split away on his next scissoring run. As you both swing by each other, you just keep turning to one side and perform a split-S. Sure as shit, there's the 'sled, out in front and trying to disengage. You're on his long-six, and within cannon range, if he wasn't jinking so hard. And that's when a loud, strong voice punches into your earphones:"WIDOW BREAK BREAK BREAK-">Evade, but keep behind that 'sled!>DIVE DIVE HIT YOUR BURNERS PILOT>Other?

You break-turn violently, standing on the rudders to help haul you through the turn and into a slightly-spiraling dive. Just as you do, Sean starts yodeling and purple tracers sing by your wing. You accelerate the spiral, throwing the radiators open for a little more drag, but the tracers keep chopping at your wing. Sean's warnings subside to grunts as G-forces assert themselves. It seems the 'Prick the Lightning was tussling with took the chance to go for your tail, and he's following your deep dive. >Commit to the defensive spiral and go for the kill? >Steepen the dive and bait the enemy for the Lightning?>Shake the bandit and go from there?>Other?

>>20155105Their "Big Guns" are a bolt-action AT rifle and a nine-barrel multirocket. The former is bolt-action, so useless in a dogfight (More bullets = better), though this is somewhat negated by ~=Sparkle=~, and the latter is pretty damn cool.Why not Panzerfausts for Witch Heavies though? Give each witch a Faust or two, give the Americans a Bazooka and a few rounds.

>>20155167The main reason is lolmagic. There's a limit to how much they can carry. Using stronger Strikers, they can carry more. The max load of any witch is probably about what Sanya has. With Jet's though, Trude can carry a 50MM and 4 30s, plus ammo.

Go home Planefag. Quest threads aren't welcome on /tg/
"Bait and switch!" you shout into the radio as you lay into the spin. Sean is calling out ranges and angles as the 'Prick maneuvers for a shot on your tail, and you hover over the dive-brake control, ready to pop them and leave that 'Prick talking to himself if he gets too close for comfort. Finally, you roll out of the spiral and tuck into a steep, straight dive."Sean, take the turret-""-aye!" You yank back on the stick violently, climbing hard to increase the deflection angle, for the 'Prick is certainly on your tail. If he climbs to keep inside the radius of your (vertical) turn, he'll also be into the upper-sphere coverage area of the remote top-turret, giving you some rearward defense. There's a shout from Sean, and you shove the stick forward, cancelling your developing loop and hopefully spoiling the deflection shot of your pursuer. Purple tracers zip overhead as the turret's quad-fifties roar behind you, and -"-the Lighting lit 'im up! Multiple cannon hits, he's in a dive!" You nose over quickly before you stall your ship, making a wide turn to scan the area. The 'Prick is still airbone, but smoking badly and bugging out to the East, towards Martian air cover. The P-38 is zoom-climbing in the distance, but his steep bounce-dive took him almost to wave-top height, five thousand feet below. Ian cries out, and you look up in time to see the 'Sled diving at you, out of the sun. >FLY TO MEET HIM>Break-turn hard as hell

Suddenly your plane hits a pocket of air and sudden;y you're spinning out of control. Sean looks at you in horror as you enter an endless spin, heading for the ground.For miles around the explosion can be seen, a marvelous spray of metal and flames and a burning hole in the ground.Posthumously you are awarded several medals for your bravery.
>>20155349Nah, he's got a point - the P-61 has great low-speed maneuvering and rudder authority, essential to that slice-back maneuver Bob described, and in a zoom-climb you're trading your existing energy (usually from a dive) into a climb, immediately. While heavier fighters do zoom-climb a little better, the #1 factor is, how fast you were already going entering the dive, since that's where most of the kinetic energy is.Except the bandit was already trying to match speeds with you in the defensive spiral, so a zoom-climb followed by an Immelman/sliceback would probably have worked. Something to think about for NEXT TIME.

>>20155712Like it or not, quest threads are here to stay. If you want to do something, but Moot to make a /quest/ board instead of bitching at us about it.
>>20155712udz stop trollan
SWQ is a gateway quest threads of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and MARTIANS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the thread itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
>>20155733bug moot rather.>STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE

Yall niggaz feedin them trolz
Boelcke's sixth dicta states "If your opponent dives on you, do not try to get around his attack, but fly to meet it." You apply that knowledge now, throwing your Widow's nose skyward to engage your diving foe. Vertical attackers usually rely on gravity to make their kills easy, keeping their enemy from pointing their guns at them as they attack freely, but despite your low airspeed the Widow has huge wings, and your new, turbosupercharged engines and WEP save you. Staggering at the edge of a stall, your fighter just manages to bring her cross-hairs towards the 'Sled... but they're a few degrees low, and fighting against gravity your Hispanos need more then that to score. You thumb the trigger anyways as you fight for a few more degrees of upward pitch, but the Martian (has?) balls of steel, refusing to flinch from his attack run even as cannon shells zip past his undercarriage. You miss by inches.Ian doesn't. Your vision explodes in purple as the P-61 bucks and shudders, and thunder fills your ears.
>>20155712OBJECTION!the mod specifically stated>Quests are /tg/ materialdid you not understand.also, his quote> As much as I personally hate *this* quest linesuggests he disliked the magia quest he posted in, rather than quests as a whole.you assertion has no evidence to back it up!

>>20155810Aww yeah.Now look around. What the hell is going on?
>>20155812And do you have any proof he wasn't referring to quest threads in general?
>>20155830It happens all the time.
>>20155810Oh good.We're receiving the blessings of Thor.
>>20155844You mean after we stopped having waifu wars? The only time it was an issue was earlier when people were coming from our /a/ threads, and trying to line up with their SW waifu, instead of someone that makes sense in canon.
>>20155864Wait, are you arguing against your own point now?LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SHIT JUST GOT INTERESTING.
>>20155864Do you have proof that he was?
>>20155810GENERAL CHENNAULT IS PLEASED.
>>20155864The burden of proof is on the accuser, not the accused. You prove he was.
>>20155864You know copycat Accelspammer, if you shat up MSQ Or Ego's shitty quest, it'd be a win-win for everyone.
>>20155912I like this suggestion. Copy-Accel, compromise?
>>20155810From across the plane Sean shouts over to you. "We should get out of here now, she can't handle much more."You shake your head, trying to get your baring, let alone consider escaping. Sean did have a point, if you ran, it was probably for the best. But with no-one to back you up, the Maritian bastard would be free to do whatever he wants. >what will you do now?
>>20155864 he explicitly refers to "This thread Line" while posting in a specific quest thread that was not particularly popular.Had this occurred in a Meta thread, one could construe it as disliking the party line, however a mod is far more likely to have referred to it as "that rule", as very few people use the word "line"to refer to a law.

>>20155932I wouldn't see the point, everyone already ignores us.Well 'cept for Ego. Fucking bitch that one is.
We have the lightning and Robin to take the other one. Bug out.

>>20155961Still reeling, you mutter to Ian and without warning, your plane suddenly begins to climb. If the aliens don't catch you now, it seems he plans on Immelmann turning back towards the base. Your hands grip tightly to your seat. If you could, you'd probably cross your fingers but instead you grit your teeth and pray to your god as the plane begins to arc back.As you fear for your life, Sean shoots you a strange look, only momentarily, looking you directly in the eyes. You wonder what it could mean but now isn't the time to think about it. For now you need to consider if you're going to just head straight back to base.
While we're waiting, who wants to discuss what happened to Robin, who was supposed to stay on our wing like a lamprey to our shark?
>>20156083Or we could post some Sanya
>>20156083Martians have tentaclesCOME IN, KOTTERS
>>20156101Sanya is always nice.
>>20156101Sanya is always related
>>20156083This is definitely troubling.If Robin was with us, she could have shot the Prick while it was concentrating on us. Same with the steam-sled.
>>20156101works for me. Hail the Adorable Cossack.
>>20156083my guess is planefag really wanted to focus on the dogfight.

>>20156276Too much fanservice for my taste, not mention not enough time.
The Widow stalls out and enters a dive, and once you realize you're still alive, you dutifully pull her upright again."Wat." "Smoked his ass good!" Sean crows from the back. "He's above the waves and bugging out, fast!" "HEY!" Robin calls out. "What happened?" "Stuff," you say, getting a visual on Robin as she returns from running off the two Martian's three wingmen. "Ian?" you call. "I put a long burst of .50 cal into his belly," he replies. "Bastard's lucky he's still flying." Ian seems a bit put out. "No thanks to your flying, I've got a few craters in my windscreen."You eye your own windscreen. "How many?" "Three.""Yeah, well, fuck you, pussy," you comment, counting over eight craters and small holes in the thick piece of armored glass that makes up your front windscreen. "Radar's shot to hell," Sean replies from the back. "Time to pack it in, I think.""Hey Widow, are you intact?" "All but our shorts," you reply shakily. "Nice bait'n'switch.""Nice work yourself. Saved me some ammo." "Anders!" a new voice breaks into the radio. "What the hell did you do?"
>>20156276PFHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHATHIS NIGGERTHIS ONE RIGHT HEREWHAT A FUCKING JOKER, HAHAHAHA
>>20156293You scan the sky rapidly for another aircraft, and, seeing none, conclude it's a Witch. "Go away, bitch," you snap. "Find your own wingman. I claim him!"There's a moment of silence as outrage builds across the airwaves."Wha-What did you just- I never- UGH! And I thought our pilots were rude!""Ladies, ladies," the P-38 jockey replies. "There's plenty of me to go around.""Hey!" Robin shouts. "I thought Ghostrider was MY wingman! How could you!" "Oh lord, seducing the young?" the new Witch exclaims. "How could-""P-P-PERVERT!" Robin exclaims, revving her engines hard and dashing away towards the new Witch. "HE'S M-M-MY BROTHER!?!" "INCEST!?" You reach out and turn off the fucking radio.
>>20156295so when do we get more fapfics?

>>20156379Good thing I run it for 3-5 hours like clockwork.
>>20156381This can be arranged.
You've gotten shot up, engaged the enemy successfully, and even made some NEW FRIENDS! You conclude it's high time you head for home. >Fly home with altitude, better for BOUNCING.>Fly home at wave-top height, better for NOT BEING SEEN.
>>20156400Wave-top.We can be waveriders.
>>20156400>Fly home at wave-top height, better for NOT BEING SEEN.
>>20156400>Choice of bounce or no bounceBOUNCY
>>20156390The quest is several times better than the anime. I didn't start reading this quest because of Strike Witches, I started reading it because I liked how planefag runs things.
>>20156295Different anon. While I wouldn't say it's good, it throws enough WW2 jokes and references around that it's entertaining to watch. For example, the engines inside of the Strikers look like their air faring counterparts, Yaeger breaks the sound barrier, they make the occasional nod to performance differences in the different Striker (Aircraft) models and the joke about Hitler's hat.
>>20156400Fly home with altitude for bouncing.Who's to say there won't be a target of opportunity on the way back?
>>20156400Wave heightWhile singing surfing songs.and radio Robin that we're heading home for refuel and re arming

>>20156400>Fly home at wave-top height, better for NOT BEING SEEN.I'd say we're just about bounced out.
>>20156400If you run into trouble, you want to be able to bounce.Wavetop means no height currency in a hurry.
>>20156434Forgot about that one. Have they been keeping time?
>>20156400>Fly home at wave-top height, better for NOT BEING SEEN.We HAVE to mess with Robin when we get back.

>>20156477And if we run into an ally in trouble?
>>20156477Better to have it/not need it then Need it/not have it
What the actual Fuck? This is a Question of Bounce and no bounce. We shouldn't be able to say anything but Fucking Bounce.
>>20156507They we come up from underneath and surprise them.REVERSE BOUNCE
>>20156315Wait, that one's really planefag!Pffhahahha.>>20156400I vote height.>>20156455This is true...but...yeah, we'd have to lure them down to the wavetops ANYWAY and we need energy and height to manipulate them properly to prevent them just high-side-turns (what's that called again) strafing us while we can't do shit.On the other hand, it'd make us less likely to be spotted...I'm uncertain, but I stated my preference.Get the GPE so you can convert it to KE.
>>20156526Bouncing isn't always the best choice and the MC is maturing past being a 1D pilot stereotype... slowly no thanks to chucklefucks like you.

>>20156527Welp you convinced me.>>20156400>Fly home with altitude, better for BOUNCING.
>>20156527>climb to attackI know nothing about dogfighting, and even I know that's fucking retarded.
Fuck you guys, we skim the tops of the waves.
>>20156571>>20156576You slowly sneak up and surprise them. I never said charge in willy-nilly.
>>20156400>STAY HIGHAltitude is your friend, especially if you might get into a scrap. And if you have to run, you can trade it for airspeed. Plus not get pinned to the fucking deck.
>>20156603>SlowlyThats the problem.The P-61 doesn't climb that well and with our airspeed way low, the moment they dive for us, we'll be in trouble.
You form up with the P-38 pilot - apparently named "Anders-" and his wing-witch "Genie." Radio reveals the oddly-modified B-17s, with the rest of Anders flight and Kathy's Marines are a safe distance away, already feet-dry over England. With this info in hand, you four agree to return to Barin together, climbing for altitude in case you need to dive away from any attackers - or pounce on any unaware Martians. You climb to 10,00 feet or so returning to Barin, so you come in fuel-light and a little later then you would otherwise. The cloud deck is descending rapidly, and a fine hazy rain has begun. In the distance you espy a small, lone dot approaching fast on your 6, but it proves to be Yeager, who smugly tells you he spotted you a good five minutes before your group noticed him. Eagle Eyed bastard. Ahead, you can see Barin.The castle is burning.
>>20156400I vote altitude. It'd be nice if we could make it back without being spotted, but knowing our luck that's not too likely even if we do hug the waves, and if we get caught that low we're in a lot shittier position than if we have some altitude to work with.
>>20156652I FUCKING KNEW IT
>>20156652OH FUCKRADIO IN IS ANYONE STILL ALIVE?

>>20156813My God...they're just interplanatary prohibitionists. This whole invasion is about getting us to give up our booze!
Long towers of wispy smoke reach into the sky from Barin, just a small edifice on the horizon. You can just make out the distant dots of patrolling aircraft and the almost-visible hints of movement and bright blue that are Witches patrolling with them. A voice snaps into your earphones as Sean switches the main radio back into the intercom circuit: "Enemy force approaching Castle Barin from south, bearing 1-1-8. Observe at least two fighter squadrons, heavies and escorts! Say again, enemy force approaching..." "You got 'em?" you ask, keying your mike. "Roger, ten-o'clock," Ian replies. "Right under the cloud deck, I'd say angels twelve." "There's something in the water," Robin calls to you. "Wat?" You cautiously roll the Widow inverted and peer through your canopy top at the water below - then jerk the yoke hard as a heavy, full-sized Martian rocket rips through the air near you."Yeah, and they're shooting at us!" Robin exclaims helpfully.
>>20156743>Recieving no communication from anywhere in the system... not even beaconsYou can HEAR the choking and detached, shocked despair in his voice.I hope those voice actors received a fucking medal.

"Looks like a cruiser and some attack boats," Genie observes calmly as she enters her own evasives. "We flew right into their AA envelope.""Sumbitch, they're going to shell Barin!" Sean points out. "Or their bombers will get through while we go for the fleet."You grit your teeth and activate your mic. "Ghostrider to Barin! To Minna, Bader, anybody! We've got a Martian fleet making a run towards Castle Barin, bearing..." - you eyeball it - "1-0-0 true! Looks to be composed of two of their little torpedo boats escorting an unknown kind of warship, smaller than one of their dreadnaughts. We need anti-ship munitions on these bastards now!”But you know that anti-ship munitions will be slow in coming. The Lexington and Saratoga have committed their complements, and Barins one runway, one DAMNED runway, can't turn fighters around fast enough for a quick re-arm. Eddington Strip is right nearby, on the shore, but you don't even know if they have bombs there, or if your big, heavy P-61 can take off bomb-laden from a flattened grass airstrip. >Maintain altitude advantage, look for more inviting targets?>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think about?>Divert to Eddington strip and try to re-arm?>Shadow the fleet and wait for help?
>Maintain altitude advantage, look for more inviting targets?Just in case we need to drop hammers. Can't do that from the deck with no smash.Then again, we have no radar.
>>20156905you haven't even seen her final formyou have no idea
>>20156947>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think about?send them straight to hell!
>>20156947Besides guns what else do we have left?
>>20156947>Maintain altitude advantage, look for more inviting targetsAttacking will do nothing. We need to wait for a better opportunity.
>>20156947Dive and strafe to give the fuckers something to think about.
>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think about?We have to do something. And if there is one thing I have learned from hollywood, strafing heavily armed ships with machine guns always guarantees a kill
>>20156986We never had anything else.
>>20156947Can we maintain altitude while we call Eddington to see if they DO have any bombs at all?I mean, their radio still works, right?
>Maintain altitude advantage, look for more inviting targets?
>>20156947>Maintain altitude advantage, look for more inviting targets
>>20156947SHOOT THERE BOATS UP!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJX0GYGn0vU
rolled 9 = 9>>20156947>Other>Strafe Alium command bridge with cannons
>>20156947>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think about.It's what we are good at ain't it?If we need the biggun' taken down fast we could always shove a widow up it's ass.No matter what happens we need tesla to give us more dakka.
>>20156999... surprisingly, it has. Accidentally the ammo lockers. But against a Martian? eeeaaaaah
>>20156947>Dive to the deck to pick up speed.>Open fire on their waterline, coming in just above the waves.Lets put a few holes into them.Anders should head to the Eddignton strip to rearm while the witches help provide air cover.
>>20156947>Divert to Eddington strip and try to re-arm?We have no radar, nothing that will actually hurt the boats, and sitting around asking to be shot at will get us, well, shot at.
Now wait as a flight of heavy bombers comes in after you fools wasted all our ammo.
No, we stay high and fight bombers.
>>20156947>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think about?
>>20156947Not much we can do to the huge bitch without rockets/bombs, we CAN shadow em and wait for our heavy hitters to get nearby and then bounce the imminent interception
Divert to Eddington We need fixings and more BOOOLEEETTTS
>>20157020I'm with this anon. Attacking is just suicidal, and we've been making strides in shaking our suicidal streak.But it's not really a good idea to go running off to Eddington without checking to make sure we can actually get an appropriate loadout there.
>>20156947>Divert to Eddington strip and try to re-armEven if they can't give us bombs, we need more bullets and fuel at the least.
>>20156947>Dive and strafe those fuckers to give them something to think aboutI think diving into that massed AA is an excellent strategy.
>>20156947>Divert to Eddington strip and try to re-arm?All we can do is rearm. We can always throw the plane at the enemy but that'd sorta kill us.
>>20156947>OTHERTake CAP for the heavies we brought!! 75mm tank cannons are much better than out quad 20's!
>All these Eddington votesDid /tg/ just change it's mind?
"Lets get them!" Robin says eagerly."Not much we can do without eggs," Yeager tells her. "We're better off keeping our altitude and dropping onto something we CAN kill.""There's a furball developing over Barin," Anders points out. You see the distant clouds of dots over the island merging as the combat-air-patrol mixes it up with the incoming Martian strike package. "Shit," you opine, still hanging in the straps, staring at the big Martian cruiser steaming towards Barin. You peer a bit closer. "Is that thing IN the water?""Yeah," Sean adds. "I've heard of that. They're making purpose-built ships now, not just dreads flying right off the water to save on... whatever. Do they even use fuel?"The thing below you is a big vessel, and you pick out trapeziod-shaped things that look a lot like gun turrets, complete with what look like maser barrels poking out. The little green men, as always, are quick studies. And then, your anti-ship munitions arrive.
This is because we destroyed the Pillow Fort - our casual disregard for its glory has come back to hit us like the karmic fist of an angry god.
>>20157164Yeah, that's good, but don't forget that we're starting to get light on fuel, and we don't know what our ammo situation is (except that we used up some).
>>20156947Nien.Obviously the right answer is for Barkhorn to turn up wield a flak cannon.
>>20157196SEND EM DOWN TO DAVY JONES
>>20157197>we destroyed the Pillow FortThere is no "we" here motherfucker. That was full on planefag runnin the choo choo train right on over to fuckyoukistan.I hate planefag. Ruined my fort.
One of the escorting Martian attack boats vanishes into a towering mushroom cloud, the blast audible even at ten-thousand feet. Flaming bits of debris fly away on graceful parabolic arcs, and on the other side of the Martian cruiser, a huge column of water KWHOOMPHS into the sky. "What the HELL was that!?" Yeager asks. "Coastal artillery?" Anders guesses. "No, look!" Robin says, pointing eagerly."We can't see where you're pointing, kiddo.""By the castle, dammit! A huge-ship! There she goes again!" You right the fighter in time to see the bright flashes on the distant surface, followed quickly by another series of flashes. Even you know what that is.A warship finishing her gun salvo.
>>20157258No, like most things it was Zucchini's fault. Who the hell builds a pillow fort on an ACTIVE RUNWAY?!
so wait since strike witches is set in WWII dose that mean that the civil air patrol had been formed, can witches be in it? and what would they do anyway
>>20157258Yes. Yes, I did. And I'm not done, either. Every time that FUCKING "pillowfort" vote popped up - even after I wrote in "Club Ghostrider" to pacify you - for every irritating shit-vote for that fucking fort I received, I will destroy it again in the story, and consequently destroy what remains of Luuchini's childhood. Fucking Italians.
>>20157290It wasn't on the runway.
>>20157292Witches are far too valuable for such low-tier duty. But with the influence of Witches through history, female fighter pilots are certainly in the CAP. And, come to think of it, they're not too far from actual overseas combat, at this point in time.
>>20157304I'll never forgive you. Never.[nospoilersontg]Actually that shit was hilarious.[/createpillowfort]
>>20157304Well see, now that you've said that you're just going to get people spamming pillowfort suggestions just to torment poor Lucchini.
>>20157304She never had one to begin with, what with her being a Witch in wartime, but I appreciate the thought. Maybe you could just kill someone off instead?
>>20157304Cool. I vote we ignore the fight, land and build a pillow fort.
>>20157304YOU'LL NEVER DESTROY THE PILLOWFORT IN MY HEART PLANEFAGGAN.
>>20157347This. I vote for Cupcake to Buy The Farm.
>>20157365What exactly is going on here?
>>20157347Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
>>20157304>I will destroy it again in the story, and consequently destroy what remains of Luuchini's childhood. Why not just do it the easy way?
>>20157398i think luuchini is implying sexual relations with erica
>>20157304>Luuchini gets killed off>suddenly MC has no interest in witches or sex in general
>>20157427>THIS MANGA.FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.EVEN NOW I STILL RAGE AT THAT ENDING.
>>20157420Pretty sure I wouldn't understand any of this even if I spoke japanese.
>>20157398>>20157406Battleship moored at Castle Barin, probably.
>>20157365you lost me
