"...Tell them to concentrate fire on one of the Matildas, then pull back." From what you'd seen the other day you were sure they'd be able to hit. Even without the Matilda escorts, the Black Prince was still a serious opponent and you'd feel a lot better bringing the entire Oorai team down on it.You put your face up to the commander's periscope, scanning the road as it approached you. It didn't take long for Glorianna's infantry-tank parade to round the corner. "Tell them to hold their fire until I fire." The three tanks were moving along the road single-file, the Matildas in front and behind the Black Prince. "Right, tell the StuG they're taking the rear Matilda- wait until they're a little bit past us and we'll get shots on their side armor."Glorianna's crews were definately experienced- they already had their turrets pointed outward to face an enemy from almost any good firing position along the forested side of the road- the lead Matilda was pointed forward, the Black Prince forward-left at forty-five degrees, and the rear Matilda ninety-degrees left- but once they were past your position that preparation would become a liablity."Hold..." Glorianna was approaching your position. "Thirty seconds..." The infantry tanks trundled along the road at a leisurely pace. "Wait for it..." You say, cold adreneline crawling up your spine. The targets crossed in front of you... "FIRE!"The Ninety thunders, followed a half a second later by the StuG's 75mm. The close-range impact actually throws the lead Matilda off the other side of the roadt. The StuG has been similarly successful, scoring a critical shot to the Matilda's engine compartment and forcing a white flag as well.Darjeeling's crew is well-trained, they immediately turn their tank and drive off into the ditich on the other side of the road, giving them a good hull-down against you.>The Black Prince is alone now- Take it out!>We did what we needed to do, fall back!
>>25372078>>We did what we needed to do, fall back!There is no shame in retreating, if only to secure a better position for victory.
>>25372078>>We did what we needed to do, fall back!No kill confirms, time to GTFO
>>25372078>>We did what we needed to do, fall back!we wolf pack the shit out of it once it gets into Oorai proper.
No need to attack them now. We can wait for a better moment.
>>25372078>We did what we needed to do, fall back!You get greedy in a battlezone, you die. We did what we had to do, now let's stick with the plan.
>>25372113Seconding this. >>We did what we needed to do, fall back!Besides, with them in a hull down position it'll be even more difficult to deal with them. Most of our tanks are small-- hit and run tactics have proven useful so far. Think Black Jack could stay to hold aggro on the BP while our smaller tanks double back behind it?
>>25372078A hull-down BP is a grim prospect.Even with the Stug on the flank I fear it could take the Stug out before it could fire again.Fine.>We did what we needed to do, fall back!
>>25372078>>The Black Prince is alone now- Take it out!NO! WE ARE SO CLOSE! VICTORY OR DEATH! WHO DARES WINS!
>>25372150>MEEP MEEP GYRO-STABILIZED GUN HERE FUK U
>Fall back, don't let them get a good shot.Can anyone summarize DuBois' Black Reconstruction for me? Also, image related to tonks
>>25372163For a given value of stabilised.
>>25372151No kidding. 17 pounder plus bitchin' armor would make this a nail biter. Fuck fair fights. Gangbeatings are in order.
I doubt letting the BP live means instadeath even if the Brits actually have reinforcements. Just lowers our chances if it comes to that.
>>25372078>We did what we needed to do, fall back!
>>25372187Your job as tank commander is to make sure you are never in a fair fight. You stack the odds as much as possible in your favor, for your crew's saftey. The only fair fight is the one you lose.
>>25372078FALL BACK! we need to lure her out of that ditch anyway.
>We did what we needed to do, fall back!
>>25372078>We did what we needed to do, fall back!The moment we go to chase that Prince, Blackjack is going to spawn a Centurion 3ft behind us
>>25372257Niggertank is deathNiggertank is destuction
>>25372207Yep. That and seeing the jap tank get a mobility kill on one would make my...day, week, year.
>>25372262But...we are in Nigger Jack tank. WE ARE niggertank.
>We did what we needed to do, fall back!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WvfZuuaUkE
>>25372273... Yet they are the nigger prince, and they have Roman allies.
>>25372268Or worse, A BOX OF MOTHERFUCKING LITTLEJOHN ADAPTORSNOT ATTACHED TO A TANKTHE HORROR.
>>25372297You'd be freaked out if a box appeared out of thin air like that. It's not like it has any self-propellation capabilities."How did that box get there? Are the Brits playing mindgames on us? Do they already have us in the palm of their hand so they can afford to fuck with us like this?!"
>>25372288>>25372294"Black Jack" is the polite version of "Nigger Jack", a nickname given to Pershing by disgruntled cadets at West Point.Thus, we are niggertank.
>>25372329Good.Because the thread is basically thinking like this right now.We will assume that Darjeeling thought that 3 Littlejohn'd Matildas and a Black Prince was more than enough to take on our motley crew.WHILE WE TRY TO SEE IF WE CAN RAISE THE VOLLEYBALL TEAM AND/OR THAT FUCKING ANZU TO SCOUT FOR US.Until then, we will assume that the only threat is the Black Prince.
I just had a cruel idea, but it's unlikely to be used. If we were able to jack into their com lines and play non stop Irish rebel folk songs, that might drive the Tea girls into a enraged frendzy that we can take advantage of.
>>25372400so... reverse saunders?
>>25372400BRILLIANTBut let's not use the Irish folk songs and replace it with us hitting on Darjeeling.If we're going to seriously unsettle them, we must unsubtly suggest we want to give her the D.
>>25372400Oh god, "My Little Armalite" 24/7
For a brief moment, the Black Prince's turret tracks past you and it seems like Darjeeling has you dead to rights, but the turret keeps rotating- perhaps she didn't see you? Maybe she wanted to knock out the StuG first? Either way, the 17-pounder comes to bear squarely on the bush hiding the StuG. Yeah, those flags were a dead give away."StuG! Pull back they've got you!" You shout into the comm, but it's too late. With a flash of smoke and fire and a thunderous report, the 17-pounder puts a shell right down the middle of the flags......And out the other side."We're already wating for you back here." Ceasar says, smartassery practically leaking out of the headset and onto your shoulder. It takes you a second to figure out what just happened and when you do, all you can do is shake your head as Richard backs away from the ambush position. "Erwin, you magnificent bastard." You say to yourself with a smile as Black Jack maneuvers back over an embankment onto the side road. "You read my books."
>>25372419I'll say, quite inelegant of you old bean.
>>25372419um, whoa there. that is going into a gray zone we shouldn't go to. besides, it would make the male crew look back in school.
>>25372447Best line of that movie. Hah!
>>25372447"Erwin, you magnificent bastard."Much obliged!
>>25372447...ERWIN YOU MOTHERFUCKING MAGNIFICENT BASTARD>>25372456Butbutbut muh Darjeeling
>>25372400>play non stop Irish rebel folk songshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHY14OVk7r0
Hang on, which tanks do we have? The enemy has three Littlejohn'd Matildas and a Black Prince left, right? Unless we've got a King Tiger or some shit, that Black Prince WILL fuck us up.
>>25372447"that's how we do"see you guys next time
>>25372490Just Little Miss Black Prince left.
>>25372490We are the niggertank, King Tiger doesn't even hold a candle to us.
>>25372490I think they only have the Prince left, and *maybe* something else. And Jack can poke holes anywhere in the prince except for the front of the turret and the front hull...I think. Can't find a diagram for armor thickness. Have this, though: http://www.wwiivehicles.com/usa/guns/90-mm/90-mm-m3-anti-tank.asp
Next time on Girls und Panzer Quest...>Urban combat isn't so fun.>Glorianna did not bring five tanks to this battle>We hold out for a hero.(...ine)Girls und Panzer will return Wednesday sometime between 5-6PM PST.Follow me on Twitter for schedule updates/changes. https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>25372490Blackjack's 90mm with HVAP can go clean through one side of the BP and out the other. The only place we can't pen it is the front.
>>25372481if you are going to seduce the Darjeeling, trash talking her in the middle of battle ISN'T THE TIME FOR IT.
>>25372509>Glorianna did not bring five tanks to this battleI KNEW IT I SO KNEW IT
>>25372509>Glorianna did not bring five tanks to this battleWell shit.
>>25372509DAMN IT! there was a 6th one!
>>25372490We've got a StuG III, a crippled Panzer IV, an I-Go, and a Panzer 38(t). We had an M3 Lee, but the crew panicked at the first sign of combat like an X-COM rookie.
>>25372456Is that a seal or an otter?
>>25372509Somebody better pick up that phone, because I FUCKING CALLED IT!
>>25372530It's a Saori, of course.
>>25372529Japanese girls' game...American guys' rules!
>>25372507And the Prince can punch holes in the Pershing anywhere but the front of the turret. Every 17 pounder carried 6% APDS, which can punch through just over 200mm of armour at 30 degrees at 450m. Given how close the tanks seem to engage each other from in GuP, we are royally fucked if the Black Prince crew have any idea what they're doing.
>>25370468>>25370638Where would you be without me
>>25372584right here because miho gave no fucks and went off anyways.
>>25372593I'm so sorry Miho, I tried to stop them ;.;
>>25372174WEB DuBois?Black and Whites worked together and got shit done including public school and public health departments. Unfortunately the laboring classes were divided along racial lines (they stealin our jobs) and the landed and capitalists eventually took over and established Jim Crow laws and racism. The South was a functional area during and after reconstruction, but racism and classism led to the oppression of the lower classes.
>>25372660thx bro, I appreciate it. I truly do not need any of the other boards.
