"Why did you cave in like that? We had her by the short hairs!" You exclaim, frustration written in your voice. "Another minute or two and I would've had her!" You are the Commander of the M26 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you didn't have anyone, let alone the student council."I-I saw that I had friends. They were willing to help me, but I didn't want you to get in trouble for it. Besides... the President was right- I'm the only person in the school who knows Senshado." Miho, who had been the one caving in, manages to look as determined as someone can while eating sweet potato ice cream. Yeah, it exists. Probably the third oddest food combination you've seen since arriving in Japan.On the other side of Miho, her friend, the buxum redhead sighs. "Do you think Anzu would've really expelled us?" She asks, worriedly."I don't know... the student council has a lot of power..." Hana, the tall, dark-haired and... Jesus how much ice cream was she pack away?>"Anzu wouldn't have expelled you... You really didn't have to do this!">"It'll be good to have you on the team.">"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"
>>24690672[x] "Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"
>"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"
>>24690672>"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."
>>24690672Ahh, my Tuesday is now better! >"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"
>>24690672"It'll be good to have you on the team."
>>24690672Damn you BlackJack, your quest schedule matches my sleep schedule near perfectly!
>>24690672>"Anzu wouldn't have expelled you... You really didn't have to do this!"Probably this. Maybe
>>24690672>"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"I mean, she's perfectly at liberty to make her own life choices, but holy fuck this girl is a doormat.We probably would have been totally fine maybe with her as just a strategic consultant.
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."She already made her decision guys, lets support her.
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."Might as well be nice to her
>>24690672>>"It'll be good to have you on the team."Support the Miporin.
>>24690672>"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"It be nice to have you on the team, won't lie about that. But if you're not into then ...
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."grrrrrrGRRRRRRI want to tell her to fuck off on principle, but I can't think of a legitimate IC reason to do so.
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."Cause seriously, it will. We're bad ass but only in one on one.
>>24690672>"It'll be good to have you on the team."She knows a hell of a lot more about team tactics then we do, so we should let her lead until she goes full doormat mode.
>>24691020And then kick her ass only enough so she's not a doormat.
>>24691020>>24691065Why not try to be some sort of support for her then?
>>24691150I agree, but there's only so much non active support you can give. Granted she develops but /tg/ is going to want her to develop faster. Like, is we get to Pravda, we're probably gonna shoot the SC in the ass to get them to stop.
Senshado rules, just for the record
>>24691188we don't know how effective it is until we actually go about doing it.
>>24691272Also true. So lets see where it goes. Hopefully we can get her out of automatic doormat mode and into at least mild suggestion mode before the big things come.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP9wtpIHsWE&hd=1 daily dose. Tank is easy~
Fuck yeah, Girls und Panzer Quest.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlmBeQFDBxgWe will be Sensha-do champions.
>>24691298To be fair to her though, I think that if she had known that the school was going to be closed down unless they won, she would have been much less of a doormat. Especially in the Pravda battle.At that point, she didn't really care about winning as much as making sure everyone else had fun
You lean back in your chair, defeated. "Well, regardless. It'll be good to have you on the team." You say, eyeing the small bowl of sweet potato icecream. You shrug inwardly and take a bit- it's really not bad, just... sweet potato ice cream. "From what the council told me, we're gonna need every experienced tanker we can get."Miho looks over at you."So far they have one tank, and they think they know where another three are." You take another bite, the flavor warming on you a bit. "We've got what any other school would consider hand-me-downs and training tanks as our main line. Well, except for Jack." You say, taking a third bite.Miho looks down at her ice cream. "It's not the tanks that matter- it's the crew." She says wistfully. "Yeah, but but a big gun helps." Ok, yeah, the ice cream is pretty good, by you. "What's an I-Go, by the way? 'Cause one of the tanks they found was an I-Go. I don't know much about Japanese tanks- hardly ever see them back in the States. It was an I-Go, a Lee..." Miho blanches a bit. "I think you might be right about needing every experienced tanker we can get...">"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?">"So you're sure you're ready for this?">"What did you think of Black Jack?"
>>24691335Agreed. All of her reactions make sense.But I kinda want her to at least tell Momo she's an idiot at least once.
>>24691350>"What did you think of Black Jack?"
>>24691350>>"What did you think of Black Jack?"The repainting, specifically. I would feel a little less betrayed if the stupid as fuck paint-job at least did the job.
>>24691350>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?">"What did you think of Black Jack?"We need to get some kinda solvent to get that shittastic paint off Black Jack
>"Are you really sure about taking Senshado?"This quest got me to watch Girls Und Panzer and for that I thank you.
>>24691396Just missed it anon, vote again.
>>24691350A bit of all three, though more of the second and third
>>24691350>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?"Also make mention about the part of Panzer IV.
>>24691350[X] "So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?"TIME TO GATHER THE BAND TOGETHER.
>>24691335Also in the series, she had no real support for her commander role as she was the only one with experience among the students and Chono had it in her head that Miho would organize the training better.>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?"I wonder if this'll mention Yukari.
>>24691396>Missed itFuck>>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?">>"What did you think of Black Jack?"
>>24691350[X] "What did you think of Black Jack?"
>>24691350>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?">"What did you think of Black Jack?"
>>24691350>"So, besides you, know anyone who's planning on joining the team?"
>>24691233Just a quick note on the setting- original tanks are actually fairly rare, especially Axis tanks. Many tanks are actually to-specs reproductions rather than restored/upkept originals.Original tanks are considered very valuable, but even good reproductions can be high sought-after for Tanking/Senshado. Not sure how well that matches up with the GuP-classic universe, but it makes sense for this one.
>>24691350>"What did you think of Black Jack?""Aside from the paintjob, we'll have that fixed soon enough"
>>24691471Close enough nobody should care.
>>24691350"Don't worry, we're doomed anyway."Wave our spoon about and ask"I assume we're not going to be running around with four tanks and just over that in crew members. You know who's going to be joining up?"
Threadly reminder for everyone.
>>24691511Best girl is best
>>24691542But they're all best girl anon.
>>24691542Dearest anon, that's not how you spell Akebi Sasaki
>>24691558This man knows whats up
>>24691558There are good choices indeed, most of which are at Oorai. Though among then Yukari stands out pretty well.
>>24691558Who's the fine lady with the tea cup. She seems classy.
>>24691624Darjeeling.And she is
>>24691621Yukari seems to me the kind of person I would hang out with more as friends then anything else.I'd probably get along best with either Mako or Hana. Maybe Kay
>>24691624I like Darjeeling, I really do. But since we're currently playing MC as MURRICA! I think we might rub her wrong. Unless we laugh at her jokes.
>>24691678Hana, who doesn't love a girl who gets turned on by a big gun firing.
>>24691706uhhh... they ALL did
>>24691678you might be one of the few that don't then. That and given how the MC is a Tanker, it's not a bad match. That and she's a wonderful package of niceness, enthusiasm, and cuteness (she looks great in a swimstuit)>>24691706>implying Yukari wouldn't be turned on by that.
>>24691689What's wrong with spam? I love spam. Wait what kind of jokes...
>>24691733Except Miho, she was all "KEEP ON LOADIN' LOADIN' LOADIN'"
>>24691733I got the impression it was mainly Hana that was actually "Turned on">>24691746Yukari seemed more like "Whoa cool!" to me.
>>24691752She says some weird things during the matches in English that are supposed to be funny or interesting but don't go well.
Love the quest, just wish OP wasn't such a slowpoke.
>>24691918It's been a pretty consistent 30 minutes between posts.
>>24691918Its barely been a half hour, much faster than that and you loose quality.
>>24691910Well I think we need to get know her then.
>>24691988It'll be interesting at the very least. We might be able to take out her Churchill if Momo doesn't screw everything up.
>>24692188That's a big IF though.
>>24692238Lets just say I'm not holding my breath. I forsee several verbal at minimum coming from MC to Momo.
>>24691678>Maybe KayDefinitely Kay.Kay is Chibodee Crockett with blonde hair, blue eyes, and a rockin' set of tits. She is everything bro-tier and cool about America.
>>24692282Kay is also as 'murica as we are. perfect match.
>>24692282I like Naomi too.
>>24692282>>24692309I'm just wondering. If Kay should decide to try and poach us, would anybody here consider it?
>>24692282True enough.Shame her tank isn't painted red white and blue. In a tasteful manner of course
"Speaking of tanks, what did you think of Black Jack?" You say with a bit of wounded pride, trying not to let the still-festering anger over what the Student Council had done to your tank seep into your voice."Well it-" Miho starts..."OH! Black Jack?!" Saori squeels. "It's so cool! I've never seen an M26 in real life before!" She rocks back in her chair, a spoonful of ice cream coming dangerously close to being flung across the room. "It's my favorite tank! So cool... And that ninety-millimeter gun!" She continues to gush before leaning over and looking down the counter at you. "Do you think Richie-san would take me for a ride in it?""I-" You start.She wasn't letting you speak, she was just getting a breath. "It doesn't matter what our other tanks our- with a Pershing on our team we'll win for sure!"You exchange glances with Miho, who smiles weakly as Saori continues to gush. "..and it's so great that you let them paint it in school colors, everyone was really impressed!">"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?">"What kind of tank did you command at Black Forest?"
>>24692238The 90mm on the blackjack should be able to take out the churchill from at least 500 yards.
>>24692326Poach as in how? As in trying to lure us to Saunders or poach as in...I can't think of an appropriate metaphor?>>24692321Naomi's cool too. Better then Alice.Of course, everyone is better then Alice.
>>24692309she's more american than 'murica. For the latter Alisa/Alica woudl be more your taste.>>24692326There's plenty of nice girls on this boat while not so many over there.>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"Looks like we triggered a Miho flag.
"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?
>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"Seems like something important to know.
>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"As much as I think we would benefit from the information, we don't need PTSD!Miho to rear her head
>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team? I know Yukari would jump at the chance."
>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"
>>24692338[x]"What kind of tank did you command at Black Forest?"
>>24692326Consider....yes. Not sure if I'd say yes or no though. >>24692338>"What kind of tank did you command at Black Forest?"Also, how does Saori know about tanks...?
>>24692338"..and it's so great that you let them paint it in school colors, everyone was really impressed!""We didn't.">"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"I think we should tread softly around the whole Black Forest thing.
>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?">>24692326Wouldn't be surprised
>>24692326No. We don't do betrayal. But we could certainly pursue a more... intimate... relationship. Albeit a long distance one. But hey, there's nothing more American than writing love letters from the front. The Real American Hero can afford to have a kind heart. For he possesses a body assembled in Detroit, out of steel smelted in Pittsburgh, that protects his heart from the hardships of the world.>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"Let's get down to business.
>>24692448In my head, I can see Saori looking into any way she could find to try and get a boyfriend. And Sensha-do is the way of the lady, or whatever they want to call it
>>24692464>filenameSorry Kay, I'm an artillery guy, but you can certainly play with my M40 Gun Motor Carriage.
>>24692338>"So, heard of anyone else that's joining the Senshado team?"Also we need to make sure Richie doesn't try and make a move on Saori while they are in OUR tank.Sure she can ride in one but groping is a no go.
>>24692338My tank is not going to be in school colors, that student council is going to find regulation paint, and somebody to restore the tank to its original coloration before it ever sees the field of senshado.
>>24692465>Let's get down to business.To defeat, the huns!
>>24692528Did they send me daughters, when I asked for sons?
>>24692528But they're so cute...
>>24692372Only person in the running to be as bad as Alice is Erica, and Alice still wins.
>>24692377am I the only one who wants to see a drawing of Miho with a white flag sticking out of her head now? Or for whenever she goes full ptsd?
>>24692692That sounds adorable. Shame I can't draw worth diddlyCaptch: lwaythis not. Indeed captcha, indeed.
>>24692692I wanna see this. Can someone shop PTSD chan with a flag?
>>24692692Maybe a shop of her thousand yard stare from the first episode?
>>24692763Who's that behind Miho?
Considering how yukari was against painting the tanks in ahistorical colours, what did she think of Black Jack being painted blue?
>>24692791Unknown people number 1 and 2. Thought the one in the back kinda looks like Saki from the first year team.
>>24692341More like 2000 plus unless you decide to fire shit AP instead of HVAP at it, which would be retarded against a heavy tank. Actually there is no real reason the Super Pershing can't just sit on a hill and shot down every single one of them. Not a single one of them has a gun taht's even CLOSE to a threat frontally and they're all extremely slow vehicles. It would be a turkey shot, really there isn't much reason it couldn't solo them any half decent defensive postion.
>>24692817She probably got pretty mad
>>24692893>Yfw they bring a fucking Black Prince
>>24692893Which is why Momo and the SC are gonna screw it up.
>>24692893But how available is HVAP?
>>24692893They might decide to bring heavier tanks to match us. It was just supposed to be a friendly exhibition match against Gloriana, they probably didn't bring their best.
>>24692930Seeing as how its not actually HVAP, but a specially designed shell with a transponder saying its an HVAP, there shouldn't be a problem at all.
>>24692951>Tortoise>Mark I Centurion>Comet>Black PrinceWe're already dead
>>24692993Doubt they'd bring all that, probably just upgrade the Matilda's with something better.
>>24693021Next better is Churchills. Maybe Cromwells.Still not very good fir us.
>>24692993>We're already deadhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uints81YYMc
>>24692993Probably not all that. They'll just try and make it sporting, rather than a curbstomp.This is our friendly nice and balanced tutorial fight.
>>24693021>upgrade the Matilda's with something betterYOU FOOL, THAT'S EVEN WORSE!
>>24692993wait, wait-- Do the other schools even know we're signed up for the Ooarai team? I'd imagine we'd be unannounced as of yet since they'd be expecting what the school already had... Like, our opening match (With whomever actually offers to fight with us first) would be a surprise since we're a new team altogether.
>>24693038I fucking love you
>>24693078Aww cmon, we can take em!In before Blackjack and Anglerfish carry every game ever...oh wait...
>>24693117If the Matilda's have fucking LJ adaptors on their guns, we're bugging the fuck out
>>24693132sorry for being ignorant, but what the flying fuck is that?
>>24692930>mfw Yeah somehow the still under armored land ship that can trundle toward us at the blistering pace of 7 miles per hour flat out is failing to inspire terror.

>>24693132Little John only has about 88-90mm penetration still useless frontally. Makes them a minor threat from the sides at right angles though. Upgrading to more Churchills or Cromwells doesn't change things much either, Churchills still can't stop our gun and still don't have guns that can penetrate frontally and still much slower so we can easily dictate the engagement. Cromwell are actually bad idea as unlike a Matilda they're armor anywhere but the front is crap. If they used Cromwells suddenly every tank on our team is a threat from the flanks. They would need to go to at least Comets or a Centurion to really gain a huge advantage. The Super Pershing baseline is pretty much a Tiger 1 with the gun of a King Tiger on it. In historical terms without tons napkin wonders roaming around that's pretty fucking beast. Anything pre 1945 is probably going to be crapping it's pants looking down that 90mm.

"So, we've got me and my crew. Then you three and the student council." You say, rattling off the people you know are taking senshado. "That gives us eleven people for at least four tanks." You finish your sweet-potato ice cream and wave at the waitress for another. "We're going to need a hell of a lot more than that to fully crew the tanks. You guys got any idea who else is joining?"Saori thinks for a second, finally interrupted from daydreams of riding over hill and dale with your driver. "Well, the History club is definately going to join. Irwin convinced them to all take it with her...""Irwin? Odd name for Japan." You wonder out loud, almost thinking there might be another foreign student at the school."She named herself after some big general- the entire History club gave themselves nicknames like that..." You blink at her. Well, at least they might know something about tanks. "Anyone else?""What's left of the volleyball team was discussing it..." Hana says quietly before taking a huge spoonful of ice cream.Saori nods. "They eliminated Volleyball last year due to budget cuts...""So how many is that?" You ask."Four a piece." Hana says"Nineteen total, then..." Miho says quietly. "The Lee needs a crew of six, the I-Go needs four, and the Panzer IV needs four or five," Miho looks at you. "You're going to keep your crew together?" You lean back.>"The President told me that there were other tanks around the school, too. Any clue what they might be?">"There's another girl that might be good to recruit...">"So, Miho. All things considered, what are our chances?"

>>24693477[x] "The President told me that there were other tanks around the school, too. Any clue what they might be?"guys this is the yukari-signal
>>24693426They could still use the Matilda BP, Archer, Challenger A3, Comet, M10Cs ('murican M10s with 17 pounders, would need a close-top conversion)Not to mention the infamous Firefly.Any of which would be adequate to threaten BlackJack from reasonable engagement ranges.

>Disregard females, acquire additional tanks!
>>24693572Hmm. Funky.And probably not much use.
>>24693558>>24693572technically, the superstructure dictates which direction the vehicle is facing, so the gun it forward over the engine deck, but the primary drive is reversed so practically it functions in reversefun fact about the archer, the driver had to leave his station before they could fire the gun, otherwise the breech would kill him
>>24693617They did a lot of stupid shit in WWII on both sides, just let it go, your brain will appreciate it.
>>24693589This isn't realistic tank battles, ya know, it's tank-kwan-do, it's exactly as good as the story requires.also, they're fuckin' crazy-cool.
>>24693638Yeah. Like the Panjandrum or whatever it was.
>>24693649that makes me wonder if that WoT tank-roundhouse (seen in a earlier thread)kick will somehow make it into this
>>24693628Not actually a true fact, though often repeated.I imagine it would be a rather harrowing experience having the breach of a 17-pounder inches from your temple, so I'd probably GTFO myself.
>>24693677>breach of any type of gunFixed that for you
>>24693667Have no idea what you're talking about, but it sounds dumb just from the name.
>>24693706I've fired a .22 before, not scary in the least.Any type of tank-main gun? probably. Unless we count those little 1930s tankettes, which just had big rifles/mgs anyway.
>>24693477>"There's another girl that might be good to recruit..."Time to draft Yukari.
>>24693727Basically, they took a giant drum, filled it with explosives. On the ends of the drum, they put what amounts to a pair of wagon wheels. Then put rockets on the wagon wheels.

>>24693800Yeah. It was a Wil-E-Coyote contraption if there ever was onehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panjandrum
>>24693800there is actual video footage of them testing these monstrosities, it is both terrifying and hilarious at the same time, and then it spins out of control and goes straight at the camera
>>24693816>>24693826>>24693762Sounds almost like the Aphrodite project. Except less successful.
>>24693842Which is a feat unto itself.
>>24693826http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cyBcGDzQzISweet christ what the fuck
>>24693853Yes, though I think the Panjadrum is slightly smarter than the one where they attempted to train pidgeons to poke a screen to guide bombs.
>>24693855Imagine being a German soldier and watching hundreds of these things coming towards you.Picture VERY MUCH related
>>24693900hey fuck you that was successful
>>24693912It was? Really? I thought it failed horribly.
>>24693900I dunno. The pigeon-bombs and bat-bombs both were projects that would make you sit back and go "WTF?"But at the same time, were rather brilliant
>>24693912So were the Batbombs
>>24693927The pigeons actually performed very well, they just never used them
>>24693930don't forget the Anti-Tank Dogs or the Chicken-Guided Missiles...
>>24693477>"The President told me that there were other tanks around the school, too. Any clue what they might be?">"There's another girl that might be good to recruit...">"So, Miho. All things considered, what are our chances?"
>>24693907Right before he breaks down laughing.
>>24693532>M10CsWe call those Achilles.
>>24693935>BatbombsI'm the hero England deserves, not the one it wants.
>>24693981True. But still.I mean, they carry something like 2,000 pounds of explosives. Not something you want coming towards you en masse. And, if they launch hundreds, some will reach their target. Maybe
>>24693667>Kugelpanzer>tfw Russia won't let anyone look it>Can't even find out what the metal is>Why Deutschland, was it April and the Nips needed trolling?
>>24693996>mfw the american airbase they were kept at was burnt to the ground when the bombs went off by accident
>>24694016I just get this image.>Lines of hundreds of these things prepared for launch. READY? LAUNCH! >German is understandably terrified.>Then the first one immediately hooks right, into the one next to it and blows up, causing a chain reaction of explosions that allow the Germans to advance about a half mile, before collapsing in laughter.
>>24693900>>24693912You mean like when the Japs decided to make paper hot air balloon bombs and send them across the Pacific on prevailing winds?And they even managed a kill count.
>>24693989Northamptonshire yeomanry?Goddamn Brits have the best unit names.
"Actually... What about that Yukari girl?" You ask. "She knows just about everything you can know about tanks- she'd probably jump at the chance to be on the team." The waitress brings you another dish of ice cream and you start in on it.Saori looks at you quizzically. "The tank geek with the crazy hair?" She says, in disbelief. "Actually... Yeah she'd probably be fine if she'd just talk to someone."You look over at her. "What do you mean?"Saori glances over at Hana. "Well... She gets teased a lot, for being so into tanks. So she doesn't have a lot of friends and doesn't talk to people a lot."You frown. "Well I guess I could talk to her tomorrow. She doesn't seem to mind me."Miho nods. "That gives us enough to run the tanks we have, just barely... It's getting late, I'll see you tomorrow at practice?" She says with a smile before standing up to bow. "Thank you so much for your support. I'll try my best to make Oorai's Panzer team the best!" She says enthusiastically."I'll walk with you, Miporin!" Saori says."I'd like to come too!" Hana says."Guess I'll see you all tomorrow" you say with a smile, finishing off the last of your ice cream.As the girls leave you look over at the waitress as she tries to clear the still half-full bowl of delicious Sweet Potato ice cream Hana had left behind. "Ey ey ey! Not so fast!" You say as you drag the bowl towards you.>Dammit, why is this stuff so good?
>>24693236I really wanna try out the Matilda, but I just can't do any good in the Medium Mk 3 to get there. Any advice?
>>24694314Play your other tanks and use the bonus xp. Or just grind the Mk3, the Matilda's worth it.
>>24694314Hang back and snipe
>>24694314mk 3 is useless, but matilda is worth every second of grind.
>>24694313>"Ey ey ey! Not so fast!"Gaijin hungry! Gaijin SMASH!
>>24694313Time to hunt for tanks!
>>24694344Yeah my problem is the MM keeps sticking me in close quarters maps. And am I being stupid using the 2-pdr Mk IX? I like the better pen, but maybe I'm thinking about this all wrong.
>>24694382No, just you need to hang back as much as possible even in CQ.
>>24694402So I'm basically driving a kinda shitty turreted TD?
>>24694382No, that's what i used and it's similar to how the Matilda works
>>24694425Yeah, except without most of the Alpha of a TD. Just stay at it and then dump it for the Tilda the second you can.
>>24694313Why IS it so good?
>>24694453Because Asian space magic bish.
>>24694453Because it's made of Matilda
>>24694495I love my Matilda but I bet it tastes horrible.
>>24693532>Matilda BP is a steaming pile >The Archer is a fucking mess of a vehicle armored with tissue paper, and its open topped so it's automatically out. >The Challenger A30 is so weakly armored that that pretty much every gun on the team is a threat to it. It also had numerous problems with that fuck huge turret. >It’s extremely unlikely they'd even have M10s as they frankly aren't really British in the slightest AND they're open topped. That only leaves Comets and Firelies both are threats, but both are in some ways also boons as again they have much lighter armor everywhere but the front. See that's the problem Britain doesn't really have any monster tank that's all around armored AND has a non-shit tier gun. (Black Prince is the only real expectation) I’d also note that the series seemed to make an effort to avoid WoT nonsense where entire teams are nothing but one off prototypes or rare heavy vehicles. Yeah you see something like that once in a while (Porche Tiger, Black Forest being loaded with top end panzers, etc) but by and large the teams are stocked mostly with shit that saw combat and was used in numbers. So it seems pretty damn unlikely that the Brits have shit tons of Black Princes, Centurion Prototypes, and Full Squadrons of Fireflies whatever lying around. Assuming they actually do have other tanks it seems FAR more likely it’s maybe some Cromwells and a Firely or two. So any move to increase firepower is going to increase vulnerability. Thus if they attempt to take tanks to counter us they're also automatically making the rest of our team more effective because the only vehicles they can use are all much weaker armor. So really it’s a rock and hard place, take tanks with better guns to counter us and they have to start worrying about all our buddies, take tanks that can shrug off the flies and now it’s a 90mm turkey shot. Damn if they do, damned if they don’t.
>>24694594Sounds like they'd go for ability to take out us and risk the others, which would be the smartest thing to do since they still won't be able to shoot for shit in the first match.
>>24694594Not really. Our "flies" are so damn incompetent that they can largely be ignored just by virtue of hurpadurp.Granted, they don't know that.
>>24694594I wouldn't discount them having Achilles, and they are fast (relatively), which makes them deadly.Also a Tortoise is not entirely out of the question
The next day, you watch for Yukari the at school but never see her. It's disappointing, but somewhat overshadowed by senshado practice that afternoon."Why is my tank still blue?" You ask Anzu as you stare at the despoiled Black Jack sitting in the hanger as girls gather around outside."We're still looking for paint. Be patient, would you? Budget cuts!" She replies exasperated. You blink at her. "We'll fix it!""Sure." You say flatly as you climb up the side.Richard stares down at the president as he slides into the driver's seat. "So you just want me to drive it out when the doors open?"Anzu nods.Rose is sitting on top of the turret already, her hand inconspicuously hold her uniform's skirt down as she pops down into the gunner's hatch. "And then you want us to fire a round up in the air?"Anzu nods again. "Mhm! We need to show these girls the power of senshado!">"They got hearing protection out there, right?">"They know what's happening, right?">"Are you sure firing like that is a good idea?"
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection and know what's happening out there, right?"We don't want scared, deafened high school girls on our hands.
>>24694767>Inb4 we take out the ship bridge
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"Really Anzu? I mean cmon...
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"This lady is full of shit.
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?">"Are you sure firing like that is a good idea?"
>>24694767[x] "They got hearing protection out there, right?"
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"This is one thing that annoyed me, no head or hearing protection at all. WE MUST EDUCATION ALL THE GIRLS ON PROPER SAFETY PROCEDURES.
>>24694767"You realize how fucking dangerous that is? Why should I do this?
>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"We should check our tank to see if she didn't sneak into it.Also how did Yukari enter the tanking picture in the series?
>>24694851Just showed up tot he first meeting.
>>24694885>>24694851And followed behind Miho because she knew she was a Nisihizumi.
So wait, she wants us to fire a 90mm shell into the air? THATS FUCKING SAFE. NOT.
>>24694767>"Are you sure firing like that is a good idea?"Actually, no, wait, changed my mind: "Hell no, that's a horrible and horribly unsafe idea."
>>24694767>>"They got hearing protection out there, right?">>"They know what's happening, right?">>"Are you sure firing like that is a good idea?"WHAT CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG!
>>24694904Maybe if we're sure it'll go into the water. Still dumb to just surprise them with it.
>>24694767>"They got hearing protection out there, right?">"They know what's happening, right?"Feel these two are appropriate
>>24694767"They got hearing protection out there, right? Also firing Black jacks gun off is stupid and dangerous, why would you even suggest that?"SAFETY FIRST BITCH
>"They got hearing protection out there, right?"
>>24694767>"They know what's happening, right?"because firing it is always a good idea
>>24694992Well, its kind of excusable if its a blank, but doesn't change the fact the gun is still loud as shit though.
I don't know what you read in some mango, but we aren't going to discharge our weapons into the air just because we're American.
>>24695253But we really should. There's not nearly enough explosions around here.
>>24695253We're not trying to be Yosemite Sam here, we are not only allowed by proper authorities, but it is at their request we do this.
>>24695253>>24695272That, and how else are we going to boost morale and get these girls into tanking? I couldn't imagine something more awesome than hearing a tank fire. If they weren't impressed before, they'll be pumped after that.Besides, the round'll end up in the ocean anyway. That and the entire culture is centered around tanks so no one'll care much. If your residence gets fucked by a tank, usually it's an honor.
>>24694767By the way we are going to advise them to paint the other tanks sensible colors, right?
>>24695272No.As an American, someone who comes from a country that isn't completely nogunz (as opposed to Japan), it is our duty, nay, our PRIVILEGE to impress upon these girls safe and responsible handling.
>>24695396Yes, but I doubt they'll listen unless somehow we get Miho to grow a backbone in only a couple threads.
>>24694767can we foot the bill for the paint ourselves. Blackjack deserves its dignity.
>>24695404Yipee-ka-yay, bro. Real Americans follow safety procedure.
"They've all got hearing protection right? This thing ain't exactly quiet." You yell down to her from commander's hatch. "Seriously. They're gonna need it!"Below you, the engine rumbles to life as Richard hits the magnetos.Anzu yells over the engine. "They'll be fine! I've got them standing back!" She says as backs up and heads through the much smaller personel door next to the garage.Strapping on your headset you toggle the mic. "Right, well. It ain't our idea, but orders are orders." It doesn't take long for the doors to begin swinging open, Momo and Yuzu struggling the move the heavy things against rusty hinges."Richard, roll us out. Carefully, if you will." And so Black Jack moves forward into the open field. With your torso still above the commander's cuppola you can see that Anzu is gesturing grandly towards your tank. Holding your mic, you talk to your driver. "Alright, Rich. Out into the field a bit, then spin us around." As your driver obeys your orders you key the turret override and rotate Jack's turret to face the girl then, as Rick commences his rotation, you keep the turret pointed towards your audiance. "Nicely done. Alright, Rose, max elevation. Roy, load the blank.""I still don't think this is a good idea." She grumbles as she wheels the main gun up to twenty degrees elevation. You rotate the turret forty-five degrees off your audiance. "Up!" Roy shouts.Thinking for a second, you duck down into the turret and button the cuppola up behind you. "Rose, fire when ready!"Jack rocks backwards slightly with the concussion and your view from the cupolla is obscured by a cloud of dust and smoke. Opening up the cuppola, you're able to get a look at the rest of the Senshado.Not a single girl is still on her feet. A young girl you don't recognize is crying in fear, Miho is wincing as she pulls her fingers out of her ears and Hana is staring at your tank with a mixture of religious awe and primal fear.>"I knew that was a bad idea...">"Tada!"
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea..."Fucking Anzu...
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea..."Goddammit.
>>24694992>"I knew that was a bad idea..."These people are freaking idiots.
>>24695542[X] "I knew that was a bad idea..."
>>24695542"I knew that was a bad idea..."Jeezus fucking what. I TOLD YOU THIS WAS A BAD IDEA
>"I knew that was a bad idea..."I think we might have to insist more on not doing these things by virtue of actually using a tank before.
>>24695542>"Tada!"With a shit-eating grin.
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea..."I called it. I fucking called it. Anzu fucks everything up again.
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea..."I told you Anzu. I TOLD YOU
>"I knew that was a bad idea..."Why did we agree to do this again?
>>24695542>>"I knew that was a bad idea..."For fuck's sake Anzu.
People the shot has been fired. Our only move now is theatrics to ensure they get over their shock.
>>24695604MC is being kind of a doormat with this stuff, yeah.
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea...""Believe it or not, Madame President, I WANT to like you. I WANT us to be friends. But you are making yourself very hard to like. Did you seriously think firing a 90mm gun less than ten yards away from a group of girls with no hearing protection was a good idea?"
>>24695542Point at Anzu"IT WAS HER IDEA!"
>>24695542Why the hell are we still following the Presidents orders when it's clear she has no goddamn idea what shes doing?
>>24695542This is last time she uses are for this shit. End of story.
>>24695542*facepalm*I knew this was a bad idea.perhaps we can get the president to consult us andMiho with anything regarding tanks in the future
>>24695667Because MC is a doormat, is the best I can tell.>>24695671>>24695688Agreed.
>>24695542>"Tada!"Act natural goddammit. Nothing unusual just happened and everything is fine. Ride this crazy train into the ground
>>24695630actually, I think Hana would be quite pleased>>24695542>not a good idea...
You people are no fun. What's a little trauma to a tanker.
>>24695542>"I knew that was a bad idea..."So the best idea now is to completely ignore any suggestion they have.
>>24695542well, the deed has been done. better hope for the sake of the entire school nobody sues your ass.
>>24695630Surely you jest, her panties are now Niagara.
>>24695791Makes me think; are there actually ANY adults around? At all? I don't think I've seen any.
>>24695830Uhm, right now, no. There's teachers somewhere, but not for Senshado.Chono probably would've thought it was a good idea anyway....
>>24695853>Chono probably would've thought it was a good idea anyway....Actually, she'd probably have thought it was a terrible idea, but let them do it anyway and not said anything. I'm convinced Chono's only reason for doing anything is her own amusement.
>>24695822they would be, if her ears weren't niagra of blood.
>>24695893Alright well, I can see that. The point still stands that she wouldn't have done anything about it. Besides, she won't show up tomorrow cause Grandpa's got her.
>>24695893Hard to say, I read the reason why she was so hands off was that she was convinced that Miho would do a better job of training them (just due to being from the big family of tankers)Basically Chono expects way too much from Miho, who struggles with the shadow her family puts over her.But she may had objected to it due to it being wasteful.
>>24695946Annnd that just produce a set of completely unwanted mental images for me.
>>24695982My job hear is done.
>>24695982>not supporting Grandpa/Chono OTPCommie pinko fag.
>>24695982Here's some more: Chono has Grandpa
>>24696009Why is Balalaika rocking a ponytail and a coonskin cap?
>>24696029If that's her, she looks pretty good in them.
>>24696018>Not murdering grandpa at the first opportunityMake it look like an accident /tg/, I know you are capable.
>>24696029Because its Balalaika and she does what she wants.
>>24696046Why would we kill grandpa?
Are the previous threads archived somewhere?
So I have exams in less than 2 hours, but TONKS.
>>24696119http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=GuPQThere ya go.
>>24696136>>24696142Needs to start putting that at the start.
>>24696029Because Dutch finally turned her
>>24696074"Because we stumbled upon his rape dungeon" springs to mind. Really I'm pretty sure Grandpa is a serial killer.
>>24696191>implying Balalaika's breasts are not only for herself and Boss ChangSeriously, those two just need to fuck already.
>>24696009More importantly, she had her burn on the other eye.
>>24696212...He's been in like two scenes and only wanted to hit on the hot japanese captain. Where'd you get that?
>>24696218and this begins the most ridiculous version of Romeo and Juliet of all time
>>24696272>and this begins the most destructive version of Romeo and Juliet of all timefixed it for you
>>24696272Oh please, they're the HEADS of their respective organizations, and their rivalry is quite friendly in nature. If they hooked up, they'd form the most obscenely powerful crime syndicate EVER.
>>24695830Speaking of, in the series they got an instructor whose first action was "free for all skirmish, go!" and then absolutely nothing else.
>>24696300Of course they won't, they're just high ranking officers in their respective crime organizations. They still have bosses in their homelands.
>>24696300They're the heads of their organizations in Roanapur. Perhaps Balalaika can get away with not kowtowing to the russian mafia, seeing as she's basically got her own private army and doesn't like them anyways, but Chang's a triad...and seemingly reliant on support from HQ
>>24696319That's Chono and her reasons was blindly assuming Miho'd do a better job. Famed lineages aren't what they're cracked up to be.
>>24696379Honestly I also get the feeling they might've been flying by the seat of their pants on some of it
You look down at Anzu as you climb down off your tank. "I knew that wasn't gonna be a good-..." You say."GREAT DEMONSTRATION!" Anzu shouts back up you. "REALLY IMPRESSIVE!" She shouts, apparently unaware of her volume. You tried to warn her...A few minutes later, after everyone's picked themselves up off the ground and recovered from tininitus, the group is assembled in front of the garage. The crowd was actually a bit larger than you expected, mostly due to a group of about a half-dozen freshmen students. It was one of them that had been crying after your ill-advised firepower demonstration. Momo does the talking while Anzu chews on a sweet potato chip."We have several tanks on board- today's job is to find them!" Yuzu drags a cloth off what you'd assumed was a pile of junk, but was actually a pile of junk that happened to be a Panzer IV. "We've already found this Panzer here..." "Tank." Your correct her and she shoots you a dirty look."Your jobs are to split up, and find the rest of them!" Momo continues.One of the freshman girls, the one with pigtails and glasses raises her hand. "Um, President? Where are they?"Anzu smiles at her. "If we knew that, then we'd already have them recovered!"
>>24696300Actually, Balalaika and her people MIGHT actually still be Russian Military, using their criminal activities as a front for advancing the interests of the Russian Federation and keeping a large armed force in a position to quickly respond to hot spots in the Southeast Asian region.
>>24696404some of it? after painting the tank POWDER FUCKING BLUE, they told you to shoot the 90MM cannon like FIFTY feet from a large group of people without hearing protection! They have been winging it to the max the whole time!
>>24696435>"Tank." Your correct her and she shoots you a dirty look.Down boy. Technically, being a PzKpfw. IV, that one IS a Panzer. Capital "P", rather than lowercase.
>>24696288>and this begins the most watchable version of Romeo and Juliet of all timeFinalized that for you.
>>24696435>>Thus begins the tank hunt montage
>>24696435Does the idiot president even have a single freaking clue of where to start looking?
Next time on Girls und Panzer Quest!We find a Panzer.We find a Girl.And girls clean Panzers!Girls und Panzer Quest will return Friday at 5PM, PST!Follow me on twitter at https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ for updates and schedule changes.
>>24696488If she knew, she woulda already found 'em. Besides, she's lazy as unholy hell.
>>24696443Roanapur is one thing, but you'd think that causing a reign of terror as an active Russian military unit in Japan would be both unnecessary and dangerous. Even more so since Balalaika frankly expressed her dislike of the ex-KGB guys who presumably would be directing her actions
>>24696507Then why is she president? I mean, really, with all of what's happened?
>>24696493Already? That felt kinda short. Oh well.I'd say you should skip more boring parts from anime and focus more on character interaction and later on TONKS.
>>24696300>and their rivalry is quite friendly in nature.He's shot her. While she was trying to shoot him.You know, you're right.
>>24696548She's school president. later on, we/they find out that she had a pretty damn good reason to try and restart panzerfahren by shanghai-ing Miho
>>24696548Because no-one else really gives a shit in Ooarai?
>>24696548According to the OVA she basically runs the whole ship. She's kind of fumbling here due to her unfamiliarity with tanks, but in the anime she's got a master plan in the works and a solid motive.
>>24696508Deniable assets, yo. They don't officially exist. And they'd be answering to the GRU, not the KGB. KGB was domestic (although they HAD a foreign intelligence branch it was not their main job) and was replaced by FSB after the fall of the USSR, GRU is foreign intelligence, and have a long-standing rivalry with/hatred for the KGB and now FSB.
>>24696508You'd think wrong Western Capitalist Babyman.
>>24696610I still don't think that an elite detatchment of military paratroopers/possibly spetznaz would be just...left to their own devices in Roanapur and then allowed to go on a bombing rampage in a country that the US is treaty-bound to protect...for no easily discernible strategic reason. There's a possibility, but I don't buy it
So when do we stop going along with Anzu's stupid as shit ideas and just do whatever the fuck we want? Its not like she can do anything to us as long as we're kicking ass and taking names on the battlefield.Painting the tank blue was one thing, but those poor girl's ears are going to be ringing for a week, assuming none of them have permanent fucking hearing damage.
>>24696610Moreover it is Military Foreign intelligence. and all in all they are the best of the Soviet intelligence services in all metrics
>>24696710>no easily discernible strategic reason.Welcome to total-denaiblility blackops. Enjoy your stay.
>>24696933Well yeah, part of the reason they hated KGB was because they (somewhat correctly) considered the KGB to be complete fucking retards, incapable of gathering intelligence as to the menu at a sandwich shop.
>>24696923I think we're done listing to her as of now.
>>24697016fuck me listening
>>24696923If your ears are ringing you've suffered permanent hearing damage.
>>24697108Yeah, nah, not so much. "My ears are ringing" is generally only indicative of incredibly minor damage which won't even register unless it happens repeatedly. Now, an explosive going off close enough to knock you on your ass could potentially upgrade from "ears ringing" to "holy shit my eardrums are gone".
