"I've... I've never been to a party before..." Yukari says, obvious yellow residue around her mouth. "Nobody ever..." She hugs you again. "Thank you so much!"You are the commander of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank, and if you didn't know better, you'd the Panzer IV's gunner, Yukari Akiyama, was drunk or something. Looking over her shoulder you see Hana giving you an apologetic look. "Yukari! Yukari-" She calls, rushing over."Sugar rush?" You guess, adjusting your shoulder slightly to give yourself some breathing room, literally."I-I've never seen someone eat so much ice cream that quickly..." Hana says quietly- Yukari is oblivious to the conversation, but as suddenly as it started, Yukari pulls away and moves off towards Miho and the Freshman.That was strange.>We need to watch Yukari and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.>Hana seems to have this in hand, though maybe we should get some ice cream ourselves?>Let's go talk with someone. (Specify)
Buy me a useful tank next time, Legio
>>25517108SUBWITCHEN WHEN, KOTTERS
>>25517126SoonAnd for real, this time.
>>25517084>We need to watch Yukari and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.Yukari X Miho threesome route go.
>>25517084>>Let's go talk with someone. (Specify)Talk to Anzu.We are going to challenge her to an ICE CREAM EATING CONTEST. Winner dictates what the loser does.And we want to know everything. Like why Oorai is joining Senshado and taking Black Jack in. This shit is highly unusual.
>>25517084>Talk to Anzu some more and get this problem we have with each other worked out like responsable people.
Speak with anzu. No one exept her (and maybe her crew)is doing the fucking dance. We had an agreement and she better keep her promise.
>>25517237If she forces us to do the dance, ROSE HAS TO BE EXEMPTED.We will fucking BEEFCAKE this dance so hard.
>We need to watch Yukari and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.Let's make sure she doesn't overdo anything as not everyone likes Yukari hugs (why is beyond me)
>>25517084>OtherThe music is too loud.My feet hurt.I wish I was at the hangar, attending to Blackjack.
>>25517302HEY! BlackJack QM! we haven't forgotten that we want a beefcake show for the girls! (and raise funds to get more tanks and gear too)
>>25517311you just want to meet the auto club crew and get it on with tanned garupans.
>>25517237Also we need a soulname from history team. Imagine everyone calling us "Patton-kun"
>>25517363>>25517302HEY! we need some drawfags in here! we need some pics made of Black jack tank crew! Stat!
>>25517392I'd be cool with Pershing-kun.Or Andrew Jackson. Or Teddy Roosevelt.We'd better be Teddy Motherfucking Roosevelt.
>>25517427Jackson and Roosevelt never commanded tanks. My vote is for Omar Bradley.
>>25517516Shame such a piece of shit got named after him, though.
>>25517084>We need to watch Yukari and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.
>>25517427Lincoln-kun, Grant-kun, and even Eisenhower-kun could work
>>25517084>>Let's go talk with someone. (Specify)Talk to Anzu, challenge to Ice cream eating contest and make sure we can work together like grown-ups.
We already got the leather jacket and helmet. Patton is the most fitting. Also OP, male tankers is a big deal in japan right? TV interviews and radical senshado purists when?
>>25517084Look after Yukari. Try engaging her in conversation. We might learn a thing or two...
>>25517084>Talk to Yukari and Miho while getting more ice cream.
>>25517516>Jackson and Roosevelt never commanded tanks. My vote is for Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.fixed that for you to make it even better
>>25517676That'd be nice too.
>We need to watch Yukari and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.
>>25517775>Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.Too modern. We need WW2 or earlier.
>>25517647we need to get a copy of Rommel's book and yell 'Rommel you magnificent bastard, I read your book!'Then again, Abrams would also work.
>>25518069We already did that, she wasn't impressed.
>>25518078... only Patton can dare to say such a thing and get away with it.It also allows us to slap that student council bitch. We'll have to apologize about it, but we'll still have slapped her.
Looking around for someone, anyone else who could do the job, you resign yourself to follow Yukari back over towards the Freshmen and Miho. She's already tottered over to them, barely able to walk straight with all the sugary, sweet potato-ey goodness streaming through her system. "Hey!" She says with a completely unnecessary wave. "You guys did great today! Everyone gets scared, it's ok!"Seven pairs of eyes look at her, then past her to you. You shrug, mouthing the words "Too much sugar." Miho immediately darts forward. "They did! They did a great job, Yukari, and so did you!" She says with a great, wide smile. "Here, have a seat over here we were just talking about their Lee!"You pull a chair away from a nearby table and sit. "The Lee! Such a noble tank- the first great American tank if you ask me, loads better than the old M3s- that 75mm was one of the best guns in the world when it was introduced. The only thing Rommel had that could match it was the Panzer IV..." Yukari casually pulls a nearly full bowl of ice cream away from one of the stunned Freshmen and starts to take bites between sentences.>Ask her about one of our tanks (Specify)>"How do you like being the loader?">Maybe someone should get her home?
>>25518376>Ask her about the...>I-Go
>Maybe someone should get her home?We do it. If her parents flipped when they realized she had friends what will their reaction be if they think she has a boyfriend?
>>25518376>Maybe someone should get her home?
>>25518376>Ask her about one of our tanks (Specify)Let's let Yukari gush all about tanks. Anyway start with the Lee then move onto the Pz4
>>25518376>acknowledgement of the fact that the Lee was very good at fighting what it actually saw combat against most of the timeThis makes my gun hard.>>25518376>Maybe someone should get her home?
>>25518376>Maybe someone should get her home?>>25518447They'll be shocked until they learn we were shipped in all the way from America just to be on the tank team. Then it will all make sense.
>>25518443yes... see what she knows about the scout tank...though on the topic of the I-Go, we should see if we can't get the engine overhauled, squeze some more juice out of it.... maybe use some of the WEP systems on it...
>>25518376> ask her about the StuGthen take the bowl back from her and hand it over to the freshmen so she doesn't get worse.
>>25518376>Maybe someone should get her home?>Ask about the I-Go on the way back
>>25518376>Ask her about the I-Go>"How do you like being the loader?"Then>Maybe someone should get her home?
>>25518447>>25518490her dad might think the worse and demand we get married before child is born. it'll go down hill from there.
>>25518376>Maybe someone should get her home?>Ask about the I-Go on the way back.We really need to get her home and make a note to limit her access to sugar.
the nazis were so fukkin epicXDDDD
>>25518376"The Lee was a stop-gap tank thrown into combat because they hadn't figured out how to properly mount a 75mm gun in the confines of a turret."
>>25518376>Ask her about the StugGood work Captcha.
Tell yukari to give back the ice cream.
>>25518499wait a sec. ask her if she knows how many and what types of tanks this school had BEFORE the tank club got shut down. she could give in universe much needed hints/flags to find the rest of the tanks we need like the Tiger-p!
>>25518591Actually Japan just uses a lot of German words because of influence from the dutch-east-indies corporation during the Meiji era. Nice try though.
>>25518591tell that to the russiens, Jews, and Gypies then.
>>25518630We would just assume that the Porsche Tiger was sold off in-character. That Chi-Ha would be a step up from the I-Go though.
>>25518642>anime girl in OP is wearing a traditional wermacht uniform with an Iron Eagle peaked capShut the fuck up you piece of shit middle class neckbeard..
>>25518671Well, he did post here.
>>25518726You seem frustrated. You should see a shrink if you ask me.
>>25518726Why don't you cut it out with all them negative waves. Why don't you dig how righteous and beautiful everything is for a change.C'mon, man, we're all just chilling tonight.
>>25518726The Nazis made some bitching tanks and had sexy as fuck uniforms. They did a lot of things wrong, but give credit where credit is due, they were practically drowning in swag.
>>25518726Which is fanart, playing off of the Germanic "Panzer" in the series title. Calm down son.
Let's just mellow and enjoy the fluffy moment
>>25518678in character, they don't even KNOW they have a Porsche tiger down below. provided that Blackjack QM hasn't chucked it. and if you are reading this QM, you damn well better not toss it out! i want it and our auto club Garupans!
>>25518793You should make a light hearted loli KKK sister quest. I mean who gives a shit, they only hurt niggers right? None of us white bros
>>25518868They'd first need to make an anime that we could base it on.
>>25518848Unless Blackjack has chucked it for something better....Like the American T95 Tank Destroyer!Slow as fuck and nigh-impenetrable front armor!Hull-down that bitch and eat Kuromoromine Tigers for breakfast!Hell, it could probably take the Maus solo.Comeon Blackjack, give us the T95! Please? Please?
>>25518793Suddenly Blackjack fires a round."IT'S PAINT"
>>25518912>T95IT WAS CALLED THE T28 FOR FUCKS SAKE YOU PEASANT
>>25518793we want more tonks QM! Saunders has a ton of them, we need to fill out our ranks asap!
>>25518930Truth>>25518912We would be unable to support it properly with our current arsenal--it would be dead in the water.Although it could totally bounce the Maus' gun. Fuck yeah.
>>25518930It was also called the 105 mm Gun Motor Carriage T95.In fact, in 1945, that became it's OFFICIAL name.That and the T28 is also a Russian medium tank, and we do NOT want Blackjack confusing that for the American Beast
>>25518912It was never called the T95, and WoT made up a fake T28 to justify their shittynessAlso, it was one of the worst designed armored vehicles ever made, there is a reason they left the prototype in a fucking forest and promptly forgot about it for 60 years
>>25518988there was a project being drawn up called that, and the T28 was merged into that project, and they kept the T28 name for itthere was also 3-4 attemps at a medium tank also called the "105 mm Gun Motor Carriage T95", mainly the 2 variants that had autoloaded 105mm guns
>>25518912Jagdtiger! Better gun, much faster, with only marginally weaker armor.
>>25519039also a colossal was of resources
>>25518988DID SOMEONE SAY BADLY-DESIGNED TANKS?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valiant_tank
>>25518992Again, it was officially called the 105 mm Gun Motor Carriage T95 in 1945 (yes, it was renamed the T28 Super Heavy Tank in 1946)And again, we don't want it being confused by Blackjack for the Soviet T28.And it'd still be better than the Porsche Tiger, which had plenty of problems on it's own, had a worse gun, and worse frontal armor.
>>25518912>>25518930>>25518968but was that tank killer legal in the fights?
>>25519082that does not matter, if would sink the ship transporting it to the fight so even if it was, you would not be able to ever field it
>>25519082Foch da polish
>>25519082Fits timeframe and no exposed crew. I mean, they allow assault guns like the STUG LIFE so why not?
>>25519114Didn't the Wolverine have an enclosed turret?I know the Hellcat and Jackson didn't...but a Wolverine would be pretty good.
>>25519138you mean the M10 GMC? it had several turrets, the production variants were all open topped
>>25519152Thought there was a variant with an enclosed turret.Not an afterthought folding one like on the Jacksons after the war.
>>25519106HEY I think the polish are very nice people you double nazi
>>25519082Why do we need a T28/95 to deal with the Maus when Black Jack's HVAP can penetrate it's frontal plate out to 500m.
>>25519082Wikipedia says " by the time the first tank was completed and ready for combat, the war was over". Which I think means it's not legal, as there has to have been at least one completed tank by the end of the war?
>>25519106ONE OF MY FRIENDS ARE POLISH, DAMN YOU. SHE'S NICE.>>25519252They ARE. Also they are the most resourceful badass motherfuckers ever, after the Russians and the Finnish.
>>25519248there were several with thin roof covers, but never any put into production, the main field modification was some for of tarp or cover over the top
>>25519295Because you never let us load the fucking things
>>25519295blackjacks the ONLY tank that can out of oorai versus black forests nineteen other tanks is not good odds...
What about the Tortoise Heavy Assault Tank (the British beast)?Yeah, it was heavy all fuck, but it mounted QF 32 pounder and pretty good armor.That and we may make Darjeeling jealousAlso, wouldn't mind getting a pack of M24 Chaffees on our team. Replacing the I-Go and the Pz. 38(t)...and maybe the M3 Lee with those would be AMAZING.
>>25519078I think the one porche tiger that saw combat(it was a command vehicle) did have the extra 100mm plates they show is WoT, but yeah, horrible reliability, even compared to the production Tiger.>>25519295I think the T-29/30/34 was a better design, but then they were designed to be heavy tanks, not linebreakers.
>>25519353This right here
>>25519321>after the Russians and the Finnish.>afterWizna.The Poles out-badass both the Russians and the Finns.
>>25519321taking on the Nazis AND commies at the same time? freaking Spartans brey Plus their bitches be mad sexy
>>25519295point. but we need to fill out our ranks and get them more exprience and quick! the saunders are coming and they are a ton of shermans and that firefly.
>>25519360It also went like -5 km an hour.
>>25519360please, stop coming up with terrible idea, slow heavily armored assault guns and assault tanks are fucking stupid when you consider that they enemy team is capable of movement
>>25519360I was for the Chaffee since about the third or fourth thread. I also wouldn't mind stuarts if chaffees are too hard to come by.
If we're going ridiculously big, why don't we just skip straight to the Landkreuzer P. 1500?
>>25519417> Nazis, Commies and Spartans.[Spoiler]We in Metro nao?[/spoiler]
>>25519460Not legal. The Maus was only allowed because the Germans had a single one finished before they surrendered.
>>25519470w0t?dis riga cant even spoiler
>>25519437Chaffee's were good little tanks, but they suffered from being, well, little. >>25519460A 1000 ton monster that would likely take more crew than our team has?Why not?
>>25519426Which is why you set up kill-zones from ambush.That and once the enemy knows you have it, they're going to do their damndest to take it out, which if you have it properly supported, will be their doom.You use it to one-shot the biggest threat, then use it as bait because the other team is going HOLYFUCKSHITWHATTHEHELLJUSTHITUSOHMYGODKILLITKILLITKILLIT!
>>25519460((Also, y'know... inability to hit anything smaller than a town. Railway guns aren't designed for use on moving targets))>>25519499Crew estimate apparently about a hundred people, so if we recruited the entire school, we could probably use it to shell other schools' parking garages pre-match.Might be a little frowned-upon by the referees, though.
>>25519503the problem with this is you think we can execute a plan without BJ railroading it to smithereens
>>25519503Ahh yes the French WWII tank doctrine. Who here can tell me what happened to the french in WWII?
>>25519439What was that? I can't hear you over the sound of a mere 720 underequipped Poles, with six 76mm AT Guns, 42 MGs, and 2 AT Rifles stopping upwards of 42,000 Germans, who had 350 tanks, 657 howitzers guns and mortars, and full aerieal support, lead by Heinz Guderian himself, dead in their tracks for three days.
>>25519486So we can use the T-10?
>>25519499The Chaffees are still better than the Pz 38(t) and the I-Go....and arguably better than the M3 Lee.Replace those three with Chaffees, and use them to scout for the PzIV, StuG, Blackjack, and eventually the Porsche Tiger (unless Blackjack decides to give us something better....like a Panther II) and the B1Their guns are still able to take on most of the other tanks (Kuromoromine will still be a problem, but the 75mm will fuck up some Shermans and T-34s), so they're not completely useless.
>>25519499We already have some decent largish tanks in the Panzer IV, Super Pershing, and the hopefully soon to be found Tiger P, but all of our fast scout tanks really suck. A Chaffee or even a Stuart would be a nice upgrade to our scouting capability.
>>25519573>like a Panther IIYou were going well until you went full retard
>>25519491The joys of typing on a phone.>>25519560Wrong Metro mate.
>>25519573Oh god, I started playing WoT friday.The M3 Lee is like an undergunned TD, and I'm stuck with it until I can get an M4.
>>25519611Play the M3 like a TD and you'll do fine.I actually racked up quite the kill count in my Lee....only ditched it because I needed the garage space once I started down the British TD and Light lines.
>>25519611I went through it too. Just put in your dues until you get the joy that is the Jumbo
>>25519611Shhh....its ok. M3 is fine. And M4+rapes if you do it right.
>>25519566... The T-10 was in production in 1945? Everything I can find says it wasn't even developed until 1952. What's your source on this?
>>25519611The only problem with the Lee in WoT is that it's over-tiered. It sucks compared to other Tier IVs, but that's because, considering the time period it was actually used during and the tanks it went up against, it should NOT be Tier IV at all. It should be Tier III.
>>25519611I had to go back through that thing to get the Sherman because I went for the T1 Heavy first.Having the 90mm and an engine upgrade waiting when I got to the T29 was nice though, especially after seeing a few people who still had the 76mm when they got one...that tank just looks sad with such a tiny gun.
>>25519638Speaking of which......my AT 2 gives me so many mixed emotions.I can barely get 20kph with the upgraded engine going downhill.But EVERYTHING bounces off my front hull and a lot bounces off my side.And the QF 6 pounder with the ROF upgrade is almost like an auto-cannon.
>>25519586Faster and more agile while still being able to take enough punishment and great firepower. I would prefer a panther II over a tiger II anyday. Peiper wanted panthers instead of king tigers when ardennes offensive was being planned.
>>25519647At least it's better than an M2Med with 37mm in a match with T5s....PING PING PING
>>25519688Oh jesus fuck I hated that so much. I mostly rammed if I got to tier 5's
>>25519643Would you go Jumbo or Easy Eight?Need to decide which to grab.
>>25519658Damn, never mind. And the IS-3 sucks the fat ass. No russian supertanks for me.
>>25519681except Panther II's were never built and they instead spend their resources and time on improving the panthers which did fine.Also, the Panther II would have been a horrendous piece of shit, way way to much weight on its already strained drivetrain
>>25519681>Peiper wanted panthers instead of king tigers when ardennes offensive was being planned.That's because the Bengal Tiger ("Königstiger" is the German name for the Bengal Tiger, "King Tiger" is a translation error) broke down if you so much as looked at it funny.
>>25519704E8's cost about 300k more, but are more of a medium tank instead of a pseudo heavy
>>25519556WHAT'S THAT? THEY HAD AT GUNS AND 42 MGS?YAKOV PAVLOV WISHED HE HAD THAT MANY MGS AND DEM AT GUNS WHEN HE HELD OFF THE ENTIRE WEHRMACHT. OR EVEN THAT MANY MEN.
>>25519756Can we please not sperg over who was more awesome in WWII?It'll never end.
>>25519792I'll concede on that point and say the Poles, the Russians and the Finnish were all equally badass.Also because it's time for Railroad und Nerdrage Quest.
>>25518376>>Maybe someone should get her home?
>>25519756Pavlov's House was badass, but the odds were significantly less stacked against Pavlov and his men than at Wizna.
>>25519792bitches don't know about mah Z Special forces
>>25519556Sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of Poland getting partitioned and being turned into a Russian/Soviet puppet again.But seriously, while it's true that the Polish soldiered fought hardcore at Wizna, it doesn't change the fact that the Poles ended up completely screwed with occupation and later as a Soviet puppet regime while the Finnish, while they had to cede the Karelian Isthmus, were so badass to the point that they stopped a Power despite being a minor country themselves and retained their independence.
>>25519728They were/are still called king tigers since the end of the war (by the allies anyways). I am well aware what it's original name is. And peiper requested panthers because they were more maneuverable and faster. He needed speed in order to reach allied supply lines. Tiger II's breaking down is just another problem.>>25519681As far as i know panther II would have had a different transmission system. I just say that I would prefer a panther II over a tiger II. But i am okay with a panther eitherway. Wish germany built more of them instead of king tigers.
You've seen this before, actually with Patrick when he'd downed three energy drinks in rapid succession- There was a quick burst of energy and then a crash. And someone needed to get Yukari home before she was asleep under one of the tables. Evidently Miho has come to the same conclusion first- "Can you bring her home?" She asks plaintively. "It's not far- I'd do it but Mako's already fallen asleep; low blood sugar." She says.You look over at Yukari as she excitedly gives the Freshmen girls a detailed rundown of the Lee's converted aircraft engine. "Sure. Where does she live?"Miho gives you pretty good directions- it's actually not far at all. Her parents own a barbarshop nearby and their apartment is just above it. Just a matter of luring her away from the poor Freshmen...>Yukari, I need some air, want to take a walk with me?>I've got some questions about Black Jack...>Other
>>25519916>Yukari, I need some air, want to take a walk with me?This should be interesting...

>>25519704Jumbo. Then again, I'm mostly a heavy tank man, and the Jumbo is certainly a heavy tank the size of a med.
>>25519916>>Yukari, I need some air, want to take a walk with me?Can talk about Jack or the I-go on the way.
>>25520027It's generally socially acceptable to carry a girl piggyback.
>>25519704Jumbo is better for most people.The Easy Eight is significantly harder to play well, but if it's a good fit for you, you'll kick ass in it.
>>25517561>implying it didn't rek more Iraqi tanks than the Abrams in DS>stay rekt Pentagon Wars
>>25520073But s-senpai, thats forbidden love!
>>25519974>Yukari, I need some air, want to take a walk with me? Also i have some questions about the I-Go."Seconding this (and quoting it, because Blackjack prefers votes to be greentexted).
>>25520029FDR was a sucky president. Made the depression last almost 3 times longer than it should have.
>>25519901The Russians can't in military organization, not at that time anyway.They had officers and secret police arguing over how to proceed while the Finns were killing their dudes, they took the gambit to cross a frozen lake in range of coastal batteries(with predictable results), and they waltzed in expecting all of Finland to welcome them as their glorious saviors from the evils of capitalism(because Stalin surrounded himself with yes men).I admit, there is something inherently badass about prying a tank's treads off with a log while it's moving and then torching the engine.>>25519916>Yukari, I need some air, want to take a walk with me?
>>25519947Mako on one hand, Yukari on the other. life is good.
>>25520093As a 19D, I hated the fucking thing. Too tall, too wide, too loud, shitty off-roading compared to a HMMWV, and gives you a tankers mentality without the armor to back it up.

>>25518944It ain't like we could possibly create another completely original tank crew to pilot another tank for Ooarai...Or can we?

>>25520304Just saying, sometimes it's better to take poor people and give them jobs building shit we need rather than let them run around stealing shit because they don't give a shit anymore.
>>25520115>>25520269>>25520304>>25520343To be fair to Roosevelt, we don't KNOW how long the Depression would have lasted otherwise, we can only guess.HOWEVER, the New Deal did include numerous elements that fucked up. Things like the National Recovery Administration.Basically, it wasn't a horrible monster, but it wasn't some angelic cure-all either.And more importantly, FDR was STILL a fucking douchebag for pulling that "cut up europe like a birthday cake" shit at Yalta, and ESPECIALLY for selling out Poland, who the US had already promised support to.
>>25520304lolbertarian idiots plz go
>>25520423That, and without government aid both the people and the entire economy would go into a death spiral.
>>25520436However, the calls to go cold turkey from the New Deal didn't exactly work out. Note the mini-depression in '37 when fiscal conservatives got him to defund much of it.
>>25520454Government aid does nothing. The entire economy was already dead. There was no chance of a death spiral. His "New Deal" merely suppressed any chance of the economy's recovery.
>>25520472Also true. Government is incredibly complex, and yet our education system tries to simplify it far too much, resulting in people having an incomplete understanding of events.
"Hey, Yukari!" You say, tapping her shoulder. "I need a bit of fresh air, I don't know the area that well yet, don't want to get lost or anything..." You try to say non-chalantly. She looks at you, and then back to the Freshman girls, who nod emphatically in agreement with you.Yukari nods. "Sure! I'll go with you." She grins at you. "I live around here, you know!""Great!" You say and and she follows you out the door. As you leave you notice Miho and Hana struggling to extricate the sleeping Mako from a booth. "That girl can sleep..." You note to yourself."Yeah... She's always really sleepy!" Yukari says informatively. "She's always late for school- but she's got a medical condition so it usually gets excused." You remember your encounter with her on the first day of school- she probably just needs to eat breakfast once in a while.As you walk out into the crisp dusk, you realise that this is going to get uncomfortable real fast unless you figure out something to talk about. >Ask about Tanks while you walk.>Ask about Black Jack.>Ask about Yukari.
>>25520436with FDR, he was generally a sympatic on a personal level (with him being crippled and all), but as a president, on domistcly, he was a complete screw up and too egotiscial and a progressive idealog to realize he was messing up. on the relationship with the rest of the world, he was better than expected. still a dick to poland and he did NOT do enough of arming up for the war before we had to jump into it.
>>25520582>Ask about Black Jack.
>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.>Ask about Tanks
>Ask about Yukari.Not everyday where a girl gets so into tanks
>>25520582>Ask about Tanks while you walk.Do a lot of Sensha-do team have rare tanks like the Black Prince, or was Gloriana just particularly well-off.
>>25520582>Ask about Tanks while you walk.Specifically, Ooarai's tanks throughout its history.
>>25520582>talk about tanks
>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.We can't be too beta.
>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.
>>25520582>Ask about YukariThis may calm her down a little bit. Any more talk of tanks and we will be carrying her back.
>>25520582>>Ask about Yukari.
>>25520582Talk about Yukari.
>>25520603Well, to be fair, until Pearl Harbor there was a huge amount of Isolationist sentiment- keep in mind that the horrors of WWI were still fresh in a lot of people's minds and there was no reason not to think another war wouldn't turn out the same way.
>>25520642Your traditional history is wrong. I bet you still think the Civil War was about "States Rights"
>>25520642>>25520566>>25520564>>25520472>>25520454>>25520448>>25520436>>25520423Guys, seriously, *all of you*, this is not the appropriate thread. Please stop pushing us towards an early autosage.

>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.>Ask about Tanks while you walk.In this order, sil vous plait.
>>25520654Again, stay buttmad edgy lolbertarian.>implying you just weren't educated about it
>>25520582>Ask about Tanks while you walk.Let's talk cold-war era stuff, since we should already be thinking about competing at the Collegiate level with how much we love this sport.
>>25520676Now you're just Ad Hominem. Seriously, how low can you sink?
>>25520654>>25520676You have whole *boards* to argue about this shit with each other, why are you clogging up our quest?
>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.>Ask about Tanks while you walk.
>>25520699Because some one is WRONG on a thread on 4chan.
>>25520582>Ask about Tanks while you walk.>Ask about Yukari.Does Yukari have any favourite tanks? How the heck did she get so into tanks in the first place? Do rare tanks turn her on?
>>25520582>Ask about Yukari.we talk tanks all the time, we want to get to know about her some more. MC/Yukari OTP time!
>>25520699Because they're party-line faggots who can't wrap their head around the idea that maybe, just maybe, the real world is more complicated than their trite political slogans.Disgusted sage because this shit doesn't belong in the thread.
>>25520354Just fanart, but neat fanart.>>25520361Her hair has transcended this mortal realm's definition of fluffy. It is now poofier and with more volume than anyone could possibly imagine.
>>25520725She likes the 7TP.
>>25520648that is also true, but anyone who didn't have their blinders on knew that another round of world wide wars was about to hit and sticking your head in the sand wouldn't save you.
>>25520741Then slink off in shame
>>25520725She does dream about the Leopard 2's main gun...
>>25520747Well we already knew she liked perky twin turrets, but does she also like long cannons?
>>25520786I think she loves them all shapes and sizes. She's lovely like that.
>>25520696While "states' rights" is certainly an obfuscating term, it isn't an entirely inappropriate one. Overall, it was over one particular states' right: the right to have slavery. Now, there was serious economic reason to keep slaves. There was a hilarious amount of wealth tied up both in the slaves themselves and the economic niche they often filled. Ergo, taking it away, as Southerners feared would be a grave financial blow. With tensions and tempers flying, especially as abolitionists grew more violent, the South seriously feared that Lincoln's election would bring financial ruin to them. This was in part due to the demise of the 3/5ths compromise as the population of the North greatly increased (especially from immigrants), meaning that they would be outnumbered in the House and only able to force a draw in the Senate if the US was half-slave, half-free. The issue of the Senate is worth its own post, if you want me to educate you on history, Mr. Lolbertarian. If all you learned about the orthodox causes of the Civil War was "lol states' rights," I gravely pity the quality of education you received.
>>25520855You're the one who's arguing for traditional historyYou're the one who believes that the Civil War was not about slavery.The history that argues that the Civil War was about slavery is the revisionist history. Pure and simple.
>>25520582>Ask about tonks>Ask about Yukari
>>25520855>>25520917/pol/ please go
>shitposting about historyWhy do that when there's more important and pleasing things to think about?
>>25520855If you think the war was started over slaves, then I pity your even more.The reason the South started separating was because the North started implementing protective tarrifs to keep the South from trading all their cotton to Europe instead of buying the more expensive products from the Northern factories. People started going bankrupt, and people started to get REALLY pissed because of that.Slavery wasn't even an issue until the Emancipation Proclamation, which was itself not set forth until the European powers were looking at getting directly involved, and even that had more loopholes than the current tax code.
"So, Yukari..." You start, trying to open up the silence. "How long have you liked tanks?" She looks over at you, a bit startled before thinking for a moment. "As long as I can remember- My dad took me to the Senshado championship when I was three or four." She smiles a bit. "He bought me a toy tank there; a Polish 7TP- the twin-machine gun version? It's still my favorite..." She seems to be calming down a bit, which meant you probably didn't have long before the crash. She looks up at you. "When did you get into tanks?"You look up at the sky. "Well, I guess Black Jack's been there my entire life- my grandfather's had him since after the Korean War. It was always there, just sitting there in the barn- I used to play in it when my parents would bring me out to my grandfather's farm." You smile sadly. "When I went to live with him, Black Jack became really important to me." You look over at Yukari, "I don't think I ever liked tanks like you- everything I know is in relation to Black Jack.">You said the E1's were rare?>What do you think about being on a tank crew?>What do you think about the school's tanks?
>>25521043for the love of god will you just shut the fuck up? Damn, son nobody cares.
>>25521043Even though you are on my side, I'm gonna have to disagree with you. The Civil War was about slavery. The reason the North put protective tarrifs up was to attempt to strangle the practice of slavery.
>>25521064>What do you think about being on a tank crew?
>>25521078Good, slink away. Don't argue with Stanford, bitch.
>>25521064>>You said the E1's were rare?
>>25521064>What do you think about being on a tank crew?I like Yukari- she's so enthusiastic!
>>25521064>What do you think about the school's tanks?
>>25521064Goin with >You said the E1's were rare?
>>25521064Yukari confirmed for liking perky twin turrets. I feel like a prophet. A prophet of hnnng.>What do you think about being on a tank crew?
>>25521095Says the man who won't raise any counterarguments. But back to tonks.>You said the E1s were rare?>What do you think about being on a tank crew
>>25521064>What do you think about the school's tanks?Acquire. More. Tanks.http://www.tankbooks.com/tanksfor/chap2.htm
>>25521156Already raised plenty. You were wrong about revisionist history, why should anyone believe you on anything else?All you did was moan about me being butthurt, which, was also wrong. I've been laughing my ass off.

>>25521259Dibs on Pitcher.
>>25521213If you were this guy: >>25521043That post was a bundle of laughs. For a supposed Stanford student, I expected much better.
>>25521064>>What do you think about being on a tank crew?>>What do you think about the school's tanks?
>>25521284I am >>25521083
>>25521295My apologies for that misunderstanding.So, what's your favorite battle?
>What do you think about the school's tanks?
>>25521313Gonna go with Antietam.My Great-great-gramps fought in it (on the side of the Union), and it paved the way for the EP.
>>25521342It's a tough one, but I'd have to say Austerlitz.That said, my great grandfather fought in the Meusse-Argonne.
>>25521064>What do you think about the school's tanks?add this as well: "We still don't know the full exsteint of what this school had and what is left over we can reuse."
>>25521376I thought you meant in the Civil War.My favorite battle of all time would probably be Midway.Speaking of WW2, my grandfather was in VMF-214, and he claimed to have taken Pappy Boyington's corsair for a joyride.
>>25521470I know the Grandson of the guy who shot DOWN Pappy Boyington.
>>25521376>>25521470Whats with this site and attracting military buffs?
>>25521500GuP quest is the intersection of /a/, /tg/, /k/. I represent /tg/ and /k/.
>>25521500stick around, you'll see every kind of poster in time.
>>25521554I guess. Still, its always fun to learn where other people's forefathers fought.>>25521578I've seen more than enough of /tg/'s posters.
>>25521470I meant in general.My favorite Civil War would be the Battle of the Wilderness.That's funny. My Grandfather was also in the Pacific. He was in the Phillipines at the very end of the war. He even snapped a picture of MacArthur at Christmas (IIRC).
>>25521596Why the Wilderness? It was a horrible meatgrinder.
>>25521617Not that anon, but EVERY Civil war battle was a meatgrinder. Napoleonic tactics do not mix well with rifles capable of firing out to a half kilometer.
No new thread yet?I blame the shitposters arguing about the cause of the War of Northern Aggression.
>>25521764THE SOUTH SHALL RISE AGAIN. And I'll continue my ancestor's tradition of helping to put it down.
>>25521617It's hard to explain, but there's something about the utilization of the forest to partially nullify the Northern advantage in the artillery and the surprising amount of maneuvering despite that it was a meatgrinder. However, I suppose it would be more accurate to say that my favorite part was the Overland Campaign as Lee and Grant run up and down the country trying to gain an advantage with maneuver.
>>25521764not even at 300 posts yet anon... be patient.BlackJack updates for those who wait...
>>25521785I didn't choose the Union. The Union chose me.Because of the draft.
>>25521785And I'll get a brown water fleet sent down the Mississipi and be occupied for the rest of the war.
>>25521799New anon here. Maybe it's because I wasn't there, but I like Sherman's march to the sea. Yes it was fucking horrible. But the pragmatic side of me see's why it happened.
"So, now you're fighting in a Panzer..." You start."Tank!" She corrects you with a smile."-Tank. What do you think? Is it what you expected?" You ask, curious. You'd always had your imagination when you'd play around in Black Jack's turret as a kid, but even then the first time you'd gone into battle with him it had been completely different that how you thought it would be- noisy, smelly, hot- Your first battle had been outside of Stockton on a cloudless May day- it was 96 degrees outside but probably closer to 110 inside the turret, and you'd had five bodies packed into it.Yukari sighs. "It's different- I'd never imagined how loud it would be, even when the engine is just idling you can barely hear anything that isn't yelled. But, it's good. It's better than that- great!" She smiles. "And for the first time I have real friends- not just people on the internet the owner of the Panzerkraft, friends that I can hang out with; that invite me to ice cream parties!" She looks like she's about ready to hug you again, but she holds back. "It's all because of you and Nishizumi-sama. I'd never have had the courage to do this without you two..." She yawns loudly, stopping at a bench on the outside of a big, grassy park. "What time is it?" She askes. "I just need to sit for a second.You're still blocks away and she's crashing...>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!">"Alright, but just for a minute...">"I needed a walk! We could've sat around at the ice cream shop!"
>>25521756It often varied as to which side it was a meat grinder for though. The Union took horrible loses at several battles following Gettysburg because they didn't quite understand that throwing masses of men against a well entrenched position isn't a very bright idea.
>>25518901Oh godThat pictureDid it look like a guy in a pirate hat to anyone else at first, too?my mind hurts
>>25521869>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!"
>>25521869>"Alright, but just for a minute..."Engage in operation "Head on lap"
>>25521869>>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!""Show me your room."
>>25521756Yes, every battle was a meat grinder, but at least some of them served a purpose. Antietam gave the EP some legitimacy, Gettysburg stopped Lee's advance into Pennsylvania. The Wilderness? Not really anything. Correct me if I'm wrong.
>>25521869>"Alright, but just for a minute..."Piggy-back ride incoming
>>25521845It was a brilliant operation, and it probably saved quite a bit of the South by shortening the war. And I say this as a Southerner>>25521869>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!"
>>25521869>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!"... we need to take a look at her room.
>>25521869>"Alright, but just for a minute..."It's not like this is a plan to carry her after she falls asleep. Who would think that's cute?
>>25521869>samashit shit, too beta for any of the choices.>Fire a handgun in the air
I was thinking about suggesting we do that from the get go.
>>25521869>"Alright, but just for a minute..."I'm betting we will have to carry her back, but it will be glorious
>>25521869"Tell you what. In Celebration for your first battle, and subsequent Victory, I shall carry you back to your house. I would be honored if you could show me your 7TP..."
>>25521869>Other: Piggyback ride to her house while making tank noises.
>>25521960He probably meant -senpai
>>25521959God damn, I completely forgot about this option.Changing from >>25521937 to >>25521959
>>25521998They're in the same year so no.
>>25521998In-canon Yukari regularly calls her "Nishizumi-dono", maybe that's what he was going for?
>>25521998It's always been dono.
>>25521869>>"Alright, but just for a minute..."Head-on-lap/shoulder time! And then maybe we'll carry her.
>>25522058Yeah, I think that's the correct one.
>>25522089So Blackjack...About those M24 Chaffees....
>>25522110Or M5 Stuarts if Chaffees are too hard to come by...
>>25522110fuck your chaffees
>>25521869>>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!"
>>25522135Heck, I'd even settle for a second Pz 38(t)At least then we can run DOUBLE HETZER
>>25521869>"C'mon, Yukari, you can show me your house and rest there!".... So... we're sleeping over in Yukari's room now? I approve of this plan.
>>25522151Yeah, so would I. Just do something with the I-Go. And possibly the Lee if we can. Who here would take a Stuart over a Lee?
>>25522162I think "brought their sugar-crashed daughter home like a gentleman" is a better start with her parents.
>>25522186And you expect those tanks to appear out of thin air?Not to mention it slows a real lack of tactical creativity.
>>25521948I really doubt it did much more than destroy unnecessary amounts of property and cause massive food shortages in Georgia. By the time of Sherman's march, the Anaconda Plan had absolutely crippled the South's ability to either export cotton or import enough munitions to carry on the war. Union Ironclads carried the North to victory as much as did Grant or Sherman.
>>25522186Well, the Lee can still be used as an impromptu TD, the Freshies just need to learn to ambush properly.The priority is getting that I-Go replaced with a proper scout tank.Ideally, this would be the best:Pz 38(t) ---> M24 ChaffeeI-Go ---> M24 ChaffeeM3 Lee ---> Pz IVPz IV ---> PantherP. Tiger ---> Tiger IIB1 bis ---> KV-1/KV-1SThat would give us a very nice force....we'll have 2 light tanks for scouting that can still do damage. We'll have a medium in the Pz IV and a TD in the StuG, the two of which can act very well in concert.The Panther, Tiger II, KV-1, and Blackjack can be the core of the force
>>25522233I'm being more realistic by downgrading our demands from a Chaffee (4,731 produced) to a Stuart (22744 produced).
>>25522110>>25522135We'll probably have to check with Anzu if there is sufficient budget. I highly doubt it.Plus, the school (probably) already blew their budget on acquiring Black Jack and crew.Even before the finals, the best they could do with their monies is convert the 38(t) into a Hetzer and put sideskirts on the Panzer IV.But yeah, Stuart or Chaffee me gusto...
>>25522233Except that the I-Go is objectively utter shit. The only reason they weren't completely useless in the anime was because of what an anon in a previous thread explained.>>24912726 >The deepest secret of the Nishizumi Style is that it is really just the weaponizng of Plot Armor. You see, the Nishizumis learned the true nature of Plot Armor. They call it the Grundstück Rüstung Field, or GR Field. And they have undertaken a eugenics program to create the ultimate Panzerkommandant. Maho was to be the mother of Die Verkürzung des Weges, but the Nishizumis made an error in their calculations. In a moment of uncharacteristic weakness, Shiho gave her husband a second daughter, when she was supposed to give him a son. And so Die Verkürzung des Weges came early. Miho Nishizumi is the prophesied one, and Oarai are to be her people. There she shall develop "Underdog Power", and use it to sweep away the forces that would use her for their own ends.
>>25522300Forgot the Chi-nu!The Chi-nu can be replaced by a second Pz IV or a second StuG, both are good options.
>>25522300I agree with that ideally, although maybe make the Lee into an Easy 8 or a Jumbo, but I doubt we'll get what we want. I'm just saying that the stuart would be an acceptable substitute for the I-Go and possibly the Pz 38(t) if Chaffee's aren't available.
>>25522303I wouldn't mind getting a FT-17 at this point.we barely have enough for a proper team and even with the upgrade we'l sill be using the I-go and the others since we need a full force
>>25522326sounds like you're not a fan of GuP or things not determined by raw stats (thus not a fan of the 8th MS team). If this quest was about normal things, then I think Blackjack would have chosen a different school than Oorai.I see the Volleyball team channeling the spirit of Shiro Amada.
>>25522300Unfortunately the KVs are right out as there are only 3 crew members available. I suppose you could move one of the rabbits across but I don't want to be the one to break them up.
>>25522300Just upgrading the PzIV from D to F2 to H made it pretty damn badass.
>>25522343Replacing the I-Go with a Stuart would probably be the only thing that is within the realm of possibility.But I didn't choose a Sherman variant to keep us from being Saunders Lite (We'd already have 2 Chaffees and a Pershing).By being a 3 American, 5 German, 1 Soviet...we stick to the spirit of Oorai being a mongrel team, not represented by any one nation (but leaning more towards Kuromoromine with a slight majority of German tanks)
>>25522375Nah, the Rabbits would get the Pz IVThe Hall Monitors would be getting the KV-1.
>>25522343Anything will be better than a fucking I-Go.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISfBFwACKFwThis is who Shiro Amada is if anyone doesn't know, doing what is considered sucidial: Take on an MS in a Ball and manages a stalemate.
>>25522441I see your point, but a sherman variant might be easier to find than a Pz IVWe should take all the advantages we can get, and not really worry about what school we are mimicking.
>>25522479Yeah, honestly, I'd be happy with even getting a Grant to replace the I-Go
>>25522505>>25522479IDEA!We could try and steal/bribe/barter/borrow indefinitely/buy Darjeeling's Comet!
>>25522505I feel like our No.1 priority line up wise should be to get something, anything, better than the I-Go.Is our tank still fucking blue?
>>25522533Well, in the show the Chi-Nu was sitting in plain sight.I have a feeling MC would be much better at spotting a tank in a freaking parking lot!
>>25522366One: I love GuP, I'm just not in denial about the fact that the I-Go not getting it's shit pushed in was due to plot armor. You can LIKE something and still be aware of it's flaws.>>25522475And he beat it by using something he actually had, and being the better pilot. He didn't literally violate physics as they work in-setting to make it happen, and he didn't rely on plot armor. He made clever use of ACTUAL non-standard tactics, rather than somehow making the Ball do things it literally CANNOT do. An I-Go is physically incapable of outrunning Shermans.
>>25522527It's a good one. We should look into that possibility. Maybe we can seduce her into giving her the Comet
>>25522463Well yes that's what I'm referring to. There are only 3 hall monitors to crew the KV series.
Oi Blackjack, what day of the week is it in story now?
>>25522568>giving her the cometI either meant giving her the dick or giving US the comet.
>>25522565actually I believe the faster speed was explained by the automotive team tweaking them within the rules.
>>25522527Doubt it, we might get away with maybe a matilda or some sort of inter-war tank
>>25522527I kinda wonder if making wagers during the Senshado tourney proper is allowed. Challenge Saunders (tank for a tank) maybe?Blood and Guts tank for Team GUTS!
>>25522682Still better than the I-Go!
>>25522631That...would totally be possible. Even on modern engines, there are gains to be had by blueprinting the motor. Imagine something as crude as a WWII era japanese tank motor. I bet you could find all kinds of stuff there. Perhaps another 1000 rpm by unfucking the valvetrain, perhaps some more grunt by cleaning up the intake and exhaust. Who knows what would be possible.
>>25522714Even just better fuel would make a difference.
"You said you live around here, right?" You mention. "Why don't we just head for your house, probably a better spot to rest than a park bench..."Yukari stares longingly at the bench before turning back to you. "I guess..." She brightens up. "Oh! I can show you my tank collection!" She says happily. "I've got a bunch! You'll love it!" She starts off at a jog. "C'mon, this way!" You catch up as she slows down to a fast walk. "My dad's a barbor, so we live right above his shop!" A few blocks later you see the characteristic barbar pole as Yukari sprints the last few yards to the front door before ringing the intercom. "I'm home! I hope you don't mind I brought a friend over!"The tiny speaker squaks. "Alright, just go fix your room before you bring her up there- it's a mess!" Yukari looks at you blushing. "Heh, sorry- it'll just take a minute!"A few moments later the door opens to reveal a taller, older version of Yukari. When she sees you she suppresses a gasp before smiling warmly. "Hello! You must be Yukari's friend!"
>>25522788>Shake her hand"How do you do Ma'am?"
>>25522714>cleaning up the intakeNo. Unless you mean de-gunking it, you do not polish an intake. Ever. Well aerated fuel is a very good thing in an engine.
>>25522788>barbor>barbarhow do you get it wrong in different ways twice
>>25522788>barbor>barbarOh shit nigger, what are you doing?
>>25522714Yeah I remember tweaking is allowed in certain extents and we're talking about a group of girls who aspire to make a tank DRIFT.
>>25522824Shitty GMShitty Quest
>>25522808This, and introductions. Be very clear we're not a boyfriend.
I just realized something: What do you think would happen once the automotive team got their hands on the black jack?

>>25522848It's been better recently.>>25522788I think there would be more surprise at the fact she has friends.
>>25522885Probably mentions that she has friends recently or thinks that this is one of her 'friends' from the internet
>>25522885Wait till the father catches wind of this
>>25522859If they can make their P tiger do wheelies...
>>25522824It's 11PM, I've had a Rockstar and a 5hr Energy and I'm assembling a master-grade Kampfer. Also I'm writing everything out in Notepad, since it has the fewest formatting problems when copy/pasting, so no convenient spellcheck for me.
>>25522916!#ew$1H.CFTake it, I could honestly give less of a shit.
>>25522788>Shake her handGood evening, Ma'am.
>>25522631There's only so much you can achieve by tweaking an engine.The I-Go's top speed was 26 KPH.The Sherman tops out anywhere between 40 and 48 KPH, depending on the model.They would need to achieve a 50% increase in top speed, to match a Sherman.Theoretically possible, but it just raises the question of why the Sherman's engine hasn't been tweaked by Saunders, especially since they're rich as hell and could doubtless afford to buy blueprinted engines (an engine rebuild is not the same as blueprinting, which is done during construction) for their tanks.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_tuning#Blueprinting>>25522788"Evenin' ma'am."
>>25522742Yeah, i mean Japan had pretty shit distillng tech back in the day. One of the reasons for our late war air dominance was the availability of 150 octane fuel. The best that the japanese could do was 89 octane fuel. They typically ran NA motors in their aircraft while we were running at least an atmosphere worth of boost. I wonder how much of a gain you would see in improving the fuel in an air cooled diesel. I mean, sure it is a 14 litre motor, but NA diesel motors would be tough, especially when air cooled.
>>25522788>Touch the fluffiest of hairs.
does it work
>>25522964besides thinking they wouldn't need too? When you have a big bad tank, would you honestly think of ways to improve it when you can just shrug everything off?I don't think the MC and his team would have thought about that as it's not how a tanker thinks. The Automotive teams think like car nuts.
>>25522994Obviously. Why wouldn't it?
>>25523016Wondering if you were lying to me
>>25523030Why would I lie to you? You're one of me now.
>>25523011That argument boils down to "Because everyone who doesn't go to Ooarai is a drooling retard that don't want their machinery to perform at it's peak."
>>25523011From a purely in universe perspective, i.e. not the one being used here, the American form of senshado relies heavily on modifications to their tanks rather than just pure versions.The Japanese version of senshado seems to be a middle area between European desire for sticking to tradition and American modding.
One of us, one of us
>>25522788"G'd'evening, ma'am."Then offer a hand.
>>25523064then why am the I first to remember that detail and why does most of the discussion about tanks go more into armor and guns than any particular tweaking: Because tankers are not used to unusual tweaking by sheer nature (tweaking a tank usually gets you chewed out in the army if not worse.)>>25523099Hitting on her mother is a no-no
>>25523107Goddammit I am too tired to be conscious right now
>>25522788'Evenin' ma'am', then offer her your hand
>>25523118How is giving a handshake and politely greeting her even remotely close to hitting on her?
>>25523118Because people in our universe think from a warfare perspective. But in-setting it's a sport, and any sport is all about tweaking everything to perform at it's peak. A good comparison would be Rallying. Any good Rally team tweaks the FUCK out of their vehicle, even if it's a badass Rally car stock.
