It's a little after three in the afternoon when you finally arrive at Oorai High's tank tank hanger. Afternoon practice hasn't started yet, but the tanks crews are all readying their weapons of war for practice. However, as you round your tank you notice someone, well, not quite new but unexpected.You are the Commander of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and why is the blond wannabe British tank commander standing in your team's hanger. "Ah! Commander Russells. Good of you to finally make it!" She says politely, turning and giving you a small bow. "We should have more than enough experienced tankers to help get the greener crews into tip-top shape!" She smiles at you and turns back, instructing them on how to best bring their 75mm sponson-gun to bear on enemies.You blink. Well, you weren't expecting this.>"Wait. What are you doing here?">"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?">"I see. Thank you, then. Where do you need me to help?"
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?">"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"HAHA TIME FOR GARUPANS
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?">"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"HAHA, TONKs, etc.Also, the Volleyball team clearly develops Stockholm syndrome on the I-Go.And the M7 Priest sucks.
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?"
>>25744545>"You bounce back quickly.""I have to ask, we might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"
>>25744545>Wait. What are you doing here?Well, this is unexpected.
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?"then and if she gives a acceptable reason>"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?">"I see. Thank you, then. Where do you need me to help?"
>>25744545TIME FOR TONKS!
>>25744545>"Wait. Don't take this the wrong way, but what are you doing here? I mean, we might fight against you in the tournament. So why are you helping us?"
>>25744545>"Wait. What are you doing here?""Did the Prez string you along for this?"
>>25744545>>"Wait. What are you doing here?">>"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"lolwut?
Aww yiss, nigga used my picture
>>25744545>>"Wait. What are you doing here?">>"We might fight against you in the tournement. Why are you helping us?"I am confuse, but I'll roll with it.
>>25744545>Other: Locate Coffee and serve it to her in a tea cup
>>25744545>"I see. Thank you, then. Where do you need me to help?"It's not like Darjeeling would intentionally train our team wrong, as a joke.
>>25744970Op used a picture I linked him on IRC as the op pic.
>>25745181You evil, evil bastard. Although it's not going to fool her for more than the first sip, you know. Possibly before then depending on what type of tea you claim it is.>>25744545Blackjack, why must you torture us by bringing in the best commander of all when it's 4:45am British time? I was just about to go to bed and now I'll be up for hours...
>>25745389Keep Awake, and drink TEAThe constant walking to the toilet will keep you awake, lest you wet yourself.
>>25745504do they even have red bull, monster, amp, or NOS in England?
>>25745529Of course they do silly, I lived off that stuff when I was a student there.
>>25745529Yes, but I don't have any in the house and it is *five in the morning* so I will have slight trouble acquiring any.
>>25745570>Your nearest Costcutters
>>25745570Does England not have 24-hour convenience stores?
>>25745570I have not yet been to England, so i didn't know. I had to ask. thanks for enlighting me.
You stare at the back of her head for a second, trying to put your thoughts into rational order. "Um." You begin, trying to get her attention.She stops, and looks at you. "Yes, commander?""Uh, why are you even here?" You ask, confused. "We might be fighting you in the tournement! We already beat you once, and you want us to be harder to beat next time?"Darjeeling smiles gently. "We underestimated Oorai's team, Commander. I promise that if our teams do meet again, you will not have it so easy..." Her smile hardens to iron at this. "As for the why, there are two reasons- your team impressed me, of course yourself and Miss Nishizumi are both excellent commanders, but the rest of your team is far better than they have any right to be with as little training as they have." She looks around the hanger. "I want to see what Oorai is truely capable of.">"And the second reason?">"So, where should I be helping today?">"Have you seen Anzu anywhere?"
>>25745599>>25745637Not near where I live these days. Nearest thing in easy walking distance closes at 11, opens again at 7.
>>25745710"And the second reason?"
>>25745710>>"And the second reason?">>"So, where should I be helping today?"
>>25745710>"And the second reason?">"Well, thanks, appreciate the help. So, where should I be helping today?"
>>25745710>>"And the second reason?"Inb4 shit and giggles
>>25745710>"And the second reason?"Tea? Unintelligible proverbs?
>>25745389on the note of coffee vs tea trolling...have we made references to the Battle of New Orleans? I'm fairly sure I recall the American commander leading a motley band of degenerates to victory over a superior, organized group of British.... we should totally be Andrew motherfucking Jackson in a tank
>>25745710>"And the second reason?"inb4 she wants the dick
>>25745710>"And the second reason?"
>>25745710>And the second reason?
>>25745710>"Have you seen Anzu anywhere?"Disregard the British, acquire hatesex.
>>25745710>"And the second reason?"I have this kneejerk reaction building in me to yell "you're the red spy!" then light her up with a flame thrower. i mean, what ELSE could she really doing here? we DO NOT need our fighting readiness and training skill level out to other schools.
>>25745710>>"And the second reason?"Betting she has a general idea of what state the school is in and doesn't want the opportunity wasted.>>25745790http://youtu.be/50_iRIcxsz0
>>25745790Do you *really* want to bring up the War of 1812? The war America likes to pretend doesn't exist because the British invaded their capital city and burnt it to the ground?
>>25745710>>"And the second reason?"ahem
>>25745734welp, looks like to enjoy more GuP threads, you should stock up on more energy drinks in the future. they do run late.
>>25745857That was Canadian troops, actually. They're like you Brits, only badass, and not still trying to act relevant decades after their empire fell apart.
>>25745857That was the Canadians.
>>25745734Coffee then.Or Apples.And Instant noodles.
>>25745857The end result was still confirmation of sovereignty and the US securing its rights at sea, so overall it was a win.
>>25745847Do we walk back into the school to see this?
>>25745923More like red white and blue spy.
>>25745923...Yes?I'm awaiting the Imouto episode.Said Imouto has transfered to an opposing school. Probably Pravda.
>>25745995...Miho IS the imouto.
>>25745710>And the second Reason?Darjeeling wants our HOT AMERICAN D, yo.
>>25745710>"And the second reason?">"So, where should I be helping today?"
>>25746032No. An actual previously known but never mentioned about, Imouto.
>>25745995>He wants KatyushaOh lawd
>>25745857we Americans haven't forgotten it mind you. a part of me would so love to pay a visit to jolly old London and BURN IT TO THE GROUND like Boadicea did on her last visit. but after awhile we kinda forgave England for it. so don't sweat it. after all, England is kinda having to pay back for it's mis deeds by not winning the FIFA's world cup EVER.
>>25746056We have a little sister?
>>25746069>talking about Foot-The-Ball>not talking about how England is a clusterfuck of violated civil liberties, chaos and is about to collapse on its own hubrisDo you even read the news brah
>>25746069well, in living memory at least.
>>25745857War of 1812 was an overall victory for the USA, no territory was lost or gained, but the British were forced to acknowledge the USA as a sovereign nation that no longer answered to the British Empire and who's citizens they couldn't force into their navy at gunpoint.Sure, they sacked D.C. and burned the white house, but their superior force was routed by an inferior bunch of militia, pirates and a token number of men you could actually call soldiers at New Orleans.And as >>25745892 mentioned, those were Canadians. The British gained nothing from 1812 but embarrassment, while the USA gained legitimacy as a rising nation.oh, and we rebuilt the burned stuff anyway. Ha!
>>25746120everyone knows it's already a cluster fuck of bad things, it's being sucked down with the rest of the EU. no need to state the obvious.
>>25746120That hasn't exactly been news since before Thatcher was PM.
>>25746087MC has a little sister? um, just where is his parents at as well i wonder?
>>25746162Only becauase the Brits never really did do anything to enforce to begin with, so...
>>25746203Obviously at where the little sister is at.
>>25746166>>25746199So why specifically mention foot-the-ball? I mean, England did win it once, in 1966.
>>25746162Well it was more of a collection of pirates, drunks, bandits, and other people of various race or circumstances then soldiers. They just had a good commander....and a ship's cannon as artillery BTW does anyone consider trying to get the Canadian Ram Tank?
>>25746199Thatcher was the LAST good PM England had, and it does not look like there will be another any time soon.
>>25746270Thatcher was good in some ways, terrible in others. She was a tough bitch in her dealings with other nations, which can be beneficial to a nation, but she was TERRIBLE on civil liberty.>>25746261>Canadian Ram TankNot really familiar with it outside of WoT, anyone here with some knowledge of history know if it was any good?
>>25746296COMRADE KLIMENTYOU ARE NOT LITTLE GIRLYOU ARE DRUNKGO HOME
>>25746270You'd best not say that in Scotland. Or Wales. Or... hell, anywhere outside the Home Counties. Or in certain parts of the Home Counties for that matter. A hell of a lot of people had their lives totally ruined by her. Those parties in the streets when she died weren't just for show. ((Kinda tacky, in my personal opinion. But people had damn good reasons to be angry.))
>>25746270Can't claim to know much about what she did beyond piss off the public unions and 'dismantle the nanny-state' as I've heard it put.Well that and she got the navy together and sent them out in their last unilateral war.>>25746319Not much besides them taking the turret off and calling them Kangaroos.
>>25745995i'll bet that MC's imouto will sneak on board and become a stumbling block when we want to score Fluffy waifu end.
>>25746319And opposed catalytic converters, wary of the CO2 it would emit.She was worried about Global Warming before it was even in fashion for politicians to do so.
>>25746403Again, Thatcher was, like most political figures, a mix of good and bad. Some people only remember the good, some only the bad, but nearly nobody wants to acknowledge that people aren't that simple. You can't just stack everyone who's ever held office into "good" and "bad" all neat and tidy.
>>25746389The scary thing is that based on the attitude required to chase down her nii-san and the lack of contact between them...The one whos coming will basically be pic related.
>>25746442>The one whos coming will basically be pic related.FFFFFFFFFFFFUCK NO!FUCK THAT LITTLE BITCH!Saori was best girl, god dammit!
>>25746442No. No. Fuck that bitch. I mean, don't fuck that bitch, because that would be playing into her hands.If an expy of her shows up, we fucking jump ship.And I don't mean to another school. I mean we're going overboard and swimming back to America.
>>25746381people tend to get real butt hurt when you take away their drugs (example: the inept and heartless public unions and the nanny state). well, the same can be said here in the U.S.A. you think there wasn't parties over here when Reagen passed away? they sure did, only they did hide it away from the TV news camras.
>>25746442Why would the MC's possible little sister be interested in tanks, anyways?
>>25746232hahahahahaha>>25746261there were technically ~1,000 'regular' soldiers of various sorts among those pirates, drunks, bandits and other folks among that collection.The artillery was just as motley a collection as the actual American 'army', and that just makes it all the more glorious.Seriously, why aren't we trolling the British girl over this in a friendly manner?
>>25746328CAN A MAN NOT DREAM, COMRADE?COMRADE STALIN HAS NOT MADE OF PROHIBITION LITTLE GIRLS YET
>>25746442yea, she was a handful, but in the end, she made the MC a better person. still, we can always stick her in another tank and not worry about it. (remember folks, GuP is going to have a second season)
>>25746574>Nanny state What even is a nanny state? I hear it all the time.
>>25746574... Let's just get back to girls and/or panzers before we have any more deep, insightful, thoroughly researched analysis of the British political scene from American fifth-graders, shall we?
>>25746603she grew up around blackjack as much as MC did.
>>25746718Eh, everything is handed to us like we have a nanny. or so my thoughts of it
>>25746718The state becoming like your nanny, in essence, Think Welfare on steroids.
>>25746718an intrusive goverment that pays people to be lazy and unproductive in exchange for votes to keep a party in power. basicly the rot that ruins nations. tl:dr: read the news more
>>25746724just waiting for Blackjack QM to post....
>>25746800Communism for pussies, then?
>>25746442>>25746511>>25746520>>25746546>>25746603>>25746705I can see the gears turning in BJ's head.Everyone has an episode where they need to face and solve their problems.This will be Russel's
>>25746847communism implies work and effort to get reward.Nanny state is like most children with a nanny."I want this, i want that. No, i dont wanna clean my room or put my trash in the trashcan"
>>25746816> basicly the rot that ruins nations. Poor, poor Sweden. Totally ruined. It's just dreadful. They're all happy and healthy and there's barely any crime or gun violence or anything. It's positively un-American.tl;dr Fox does not qualify as news.
>>25746319If I recall it was slightly better then the M3 if I recall since it used the same chassis but had a rotating turret and carried a 6 pounder gun.It was used as a training tank due to the fact that it came out roughly the same time as the sherman which was better
>>25746815Considering how much in debt the fed is, no, Universal Healthcare is the last thing we need, same with the massive taxes the nations who have it use to support it.
>>25746815you seem to not read the news. the Obama-doesn't care is a complete failure to even work and it's balloning way out of estimated budget. on top of a dept we can't pay back, we can't affored universal health care. The EU can't affored it either.
>>25746740I'll wager that she's into superior german steel.An imouto in a Pz II Luchs, just skittering around the field and being generally useless and noisy.
"...And the second reason?" You ask her as Darjeeling finishes her speech. You aren't exactly sold on the idea of contracting training out to a rival school- especially one that you'd already beaten once and likely had every reason to not allow that to happen again."I believe Anzu will tell you the second reason when she's ready for you to know." Darjeeling says with a small smile. "But you should know that this tournement is very important to Anzu, and she has no intention of losing." "...Could've fooled me..." You mutter. "So, you're helping out Rabbit Team. Where do you need me to help?"Darjeeling nods at you and, after a moment's thought smiles. "Well, I suppose if I'm helping the Hare, you could help the Tortoise?"Yeah, it was a dumb joke but you smile a bit at it anyway.>Go find Miho, maybe she knows more than Darjeeling is letting on.>Go find your crew, if we're going to be working with Darjeeling, they need to know not to let too much on...>Go find Turtle Team- let's make sure Momo is learning her lessons well.

>>25747051true but if i recall it loses it's 75mm gun which my not be acceptable for the team right now. We just need to replace the I-go and the Ram might have been a considerable choice

Getting back to tanks, I made a trip earlier this week to Ft Benning and got some pictures of what they have on standby in the restoration yard.
>>25746945>Collect Miho, then crew, save for Rose, who is most likely drilling the fuck out of Momo.SUDDENLY DARJEELING DECLARES THAT SHE IS GAY FOR ANZU
>>25747249Back to tanks?Did you know that if two TOGs are sufficiently distracted, a single KV-1S with that biased 122 will kill them easy?
>>25747249They have 3 of these things floating around.
>>25747249Y'know, at first I'd considered giving the MC a Heavy tank like a T29 or T34, but I thought it'd be too OP.
>>25747249Are those two rusted ones Pershings? And is that a Patton at the end?
>>25747323Are... Are those PzKpfw III/IVs?
>>25747327The one of the end is a 103, the others are the T30 and T34.The outer tracks are about 10 ft out of frame for this one.>>25747375Panthers...or do you mean the little one in the back? I think that's a III.
>>25747375I don't think the III/IV ever got off the drawing board
>>25747249whoa, you didn't have to that for us. I'm touched that you when out of your way to got those pics. you're a real bro my friend.
>>25747519I was heading that way to get fireworks.
>>25747325you can always give us one later QM! there are probably a lot of tanks lost inside the ship... speaking of which, when will the next batch show up?
>>25747455Oh wow, they have one of the T28 prototypes up for restoration? Just how massive are those things in person?
>>25747601Not for quite awhile. Next upgrades come around after Anzio, I think. After Anzio but before Pravda, going by canon.
>>25747629Not nearly as tall as I thought.They're only a hair taller than the body on the 103.For size comparison, my little brother here stands 6'4".
>>25747680Actually, they managed to find the B1 Char before the Anzio match.I THINK WE CAN GET SOME UPGRADES IN. LIKE POSSIBLY A CHINESE CHI-HA
>>25747582Behind and to the right of the Churchill. Is that a Priest?
>>25747738Wasn't the Chi-Ha they found Japanese?
>>25747629WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT POOR M14!?
>>25747756That was the I-Go.The Chi-ha can mount a Chinese 47mm gun. That is, of course, assuming anyone would be mad enough to sell it to them at an affordable price.BUT ENOUGH OF THAT, WE CAN DIG DEEPER. THERE'S PROBABLY A SHERMAN IN THAT SHIP
>>25746945>Go find your crew, if we're going to be working with Darjeeling, they need to know not to let too much on...>Go find Turtle Team- let's make sure Momo is learning her lessons well.
>>25747748Yes is it.I think the white and green tanks to the right were Grants or Lees.This was the one I went there to see, but it was in a bit rougher shape than I expected.
>>25747819>Implying all the Shermans haven't already been bought by Saunders>Implying we won't have to make do with rusted Slavshit found under twenty feet of mud
>>25747868At least it'll start right up.
>>25747819Just checked Wikipedia, it says Ch-Ha is Japanese. Are you sure you aren't havin' a giggle?
>>25747884hurr forgot the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6LNZMZ5KgA
>>25747748Yes.To the left is a T-55, in the left rear a Challenger, and in the center ear an S-tank.To th right rear are two US tanks, Lee/Grant or Stuart, canT' tell, plus a TD I also do not recognize. M10 or Hellcat from the part of the turret we see, but the hull looks weird.Holy FUCK that is one fine collection.
>>25747819We need stuarts....
>>25747868>>25747884It probably runs just as well on mud as it would on gasoline.
>>25747912There were a bunch of other tanks there I didn't recognize and weren't labeled.I think most of these were brought back from Germany when Old Ironsides moved there.
>>25748015gibe pictures nao and i identfy tanks
It isn't hard to find Turtle Team- Anzu and Yuzu are both lazying about outside their Czech-made Panzer 38(t). "Shouldn't you two be practicing or something?" You say, a bit annoyed that they weren't at the very least inspecting their tank and making sure everything was in running order."Can't." Anzu says, chewing on an apple."Rose kicked us out of the tank..." Yuzu says sadly."'You two are just getting Momo excited!'" Anzu says, obviously quoting your gunner. "'You keep hurrying her! She'll never shoot straight with you two in here!'"You frown. "Well then check the engine! Tighten the tracks! DO SOMETHING!" Experience had taught you that there was always something on a tank that needed adjusting, or fixing, or replacing- there was no excuse for them to just laze about.>Let's ask Rose how Momo is doing.>Let's see how Momo is doing.>Well, if Rose is helping her and Anzu and Yuzu aren't distracting her, let's go do something else!

>>25748186Unfortunately these are all I have. I went there for the 29E3 and just kinda stumbled on the others.There was a Pershing, an M-46, and most of the ones I couldn't identify looked like Ex-East German army Russian tanks.There was also a Panther(the 3rd one) sitting next to a Sherman, but that was too far inside the fence for me to get a good shot of.>>25748303>>Let's ask Rose how Momo is doing.Trusting one's subordinates is key, and Rose knows her gunnery better than we do.>>Well, if Rose is helping her and Anzu and Yuzu aren't distracting her, let's go do something else!

>>25748479No Orange Pekoe though...I am disappoint.
>>25748303>Well, if Rose is helping her and Anzu and Yuzu aren't distracting her, let's go do something else! (Specify)DID SOMEONE SAY GRUNT WORK. ALSO DO EVERYTHING TO GET THEM TO UNDERSTAND THEIR TANK.
>>25748527"OP, I need you to hold the fort while I go frolicking with the Oarai.""I hope you step on a lego."Was OP the same year as Darjeeling, or is she her kouhai?
>>25748554THEY MUST MAKE THE FUCKING BOLTS OF THE TANKTHEY MUST POUR THE MOLTEN METAL INTO THE SHAPE OF THE TANKTHEY MUST MAKE THE WHOLE DAMN TANKTHEY MUST RIFLE THE GUNS WITH THEIR TINY LITTLE GIRL HANDSTHEY MUST MAKE THE TANK, IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE TANK>>25748445Totally fucking awesome ones. Like us.It's either that or Darjeeling wants Russels' D.
>>25748688To make a 38(t) from scratch, you must first create the universe.
>>25748303>Let's see how Momo is doing.
>>25748778So, like this, but with tanks instead of Mahjong?
>>25748644I think they were the same year. I'm just sad everyone forgets about Assam.
>>25749186Russel didn't. Dohoho.I wonder what she'll make of this when Darjeerling goes back and tells her the American boy asked where she was.
>>25748909'Invent', not 'create'. Damn, I misquoted. Sorry.
>>25749186I just really want to have Orange Pekoe say "You're so full of shit senpai."
You stop. "Actually, before you do something..." You look over at Anzu. "Why's Darjeeling here?" You think for a second. "Scratch that... Why is Darjeeling really here?"Anzu looks at you boredly, but Yuzu starts speaking first. "She just doesn't want to s-"Anzu shuts her up with a look that could peel the zimmerit off a Tiger. "Darjeeling's a... capricious personality- part of the reason I enjoy her company." Anzu starts. "I really couldn't tell you why she offered to help, but I certainly didn't ask for it." Anzu takes another bite of her apple, and continues while talking. "Not that I'm going to turn it down- she's been one of the most successful commanders that Glorianna's had in years!"You look at Anzu. "And you're not the least bit suspicious?""Not at all." Anzu looks over towards Darjeeling as she walks the Freshmen around their tank, still under repair by the automotive club. "Darjeeling's has an honorable streak a mile wide- I've known her for years and she doesn't cheat, doesn't even bend the rules." Anzu smiles. "Kinda gets boring sometimes, but we can rely on her.">"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same.">"Well, if you say she can be trusted...">"Other."
>>25749605>>"Other.""As you say then."Off to check on camo training after checking in with Rose.
>>25749605>"Well, if you say she can be trusted..."Anzu knows her shit when it comes to politics. I think we can trust her call on this one.
>>25749605>"Well, if you say she can be trusted..."Hmm... What if they defeat Black Forest?
>>25749605>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."Loose lips sink ships! Best not let the Britbong in on our plans.
Ok so concerning the rules of Panzerfahren. What do the rules say about using rocket attachments like the calliope battery for the sherman.
>>25749605>Other.Remove St. Gloriana from the premises
>>25749742I don't think they say anything.
>>25749605>>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same.">"Other.""Even though she might mean well but to have her come without either Miho or my knowledge let alone consent is unacceptable.Remember Anzu, your not in charge of training we are and doing something like this is undermining our authority, well intention or not.
>>25749605>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."Keep an eye out on them in any case.
I'd say keep her away from the strategy meetings, but do we even have those? or do we just make stuff up on the fly?
>>25749742I'm sure it's fine, but I'm not sure exactly why we would want to. Those rockets are more for shock and awe--we wouldn't be able to hit anything with them and even if by some miracle we did the most we could hope for is to knock someone's tack off.
>>25749605>"Well, if you say she can be trusted..."
>>25749780Pretty much this, until we know who we are up against. I'm kind of annoyed that Anzu is undermining our authority...again
>>25749605>>"Well, if you say she can be trusted..."What the hell, leave this one in Anzu's court.
>>25749605>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."
Darjeeling may be a little full of herself and her team, but in the end she's a good person to have as a friend.
>>25749791>Other"I'm fine with her sitting in on our gunnery and driving practices, but I'm not going to stand for it if you let her in to our maneuver practice.>The most we could hope for is a mobility kill.This is a bad thing why? They're jettison-able after they're used or if you decide you don't need it.
>>25749889True, but she should have gone through the proper channels, like letting us know ahead of time. It seemed Anzu knew and just let her in, again we must establish our authorityand what happened to the American meal?
>>25749605>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."We're Yanks- we'll happily help and accept help from the limeys, but there's not a chance in hell we'd trust them.
>>25749791I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure the thought process of anyone in the general direction of those rockets would be overridden with "OH FUCK RUN"At the very least, it'd make for a good cover, especially if we had it fire smoke
>>25749889We need more enemies besides Anzu to keep things fresh.Let's start a betting pool on who is the next girl we manage to make cry.
>>25749921Because a mobility kill with one of those would be 1 in 1000 and the resources would be best spent elsewhere?>>25749939thought process of anyone in front of a Panzer IV would also be OH FUCK RUN but that doesn't mean much since there's no real threat of death here. That said, smoke rockets would be useful,, I'll give you that.
>>25749921Seems to be too little utility for a one-off.It'll be like lugging around and hoarding that one awesome item you don't know when you might use.
>>25749889she is, she's a stand up girl. Also, Jackie, can we please get some more Assam ? She's best.
>>25749605>>"Well, if you say she can be trusted...">>"Next time tell me and Miho about these things"
>>25749968See>>25750040Don't you feel silly now, popping that jif prematurely with no good context.
>>25749605>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."So, is Darjeeling gay for Anzu or what. Also where is Orange Pekoe and Assam (I am assuming Assam is the go-to girl when Darjeeling faffs around)
>>25750010NAKED. ANGLERFISH. DANCE.Also, when do we BEEFCAKE.
>>25750179After Momo can hit the broadside of a TOG.
>>25750199Lord help me I lost it
Rolled 4>>25749605>"Well, if YOU say she can be trusted, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings."No, just kidding. My vote is:>"Eh, I think we should probably keep her seperate from our strategy meetings, all the same."
You look at Anzu, then over at Darjeeling. If nothing else, Anzu is damned good at reading people. "Right, if you trust her then she's fine. Just... How about letting me or Miho know about these surprises ahead of time."Anzu looks at you and shrugs. "Didn't even know she was going to be here until she showed up. Capricious, remember?" She slides down off the side of the 38(t) and waves you closer. "Actually, before you go. I was wondering if you could help me with something?" You're actually taken off guard by this. Anzu almost never askes for help- she just finds a way of getting you to help without you knowing. Cautiously you approach closer...>"What did you need help with?">"I've got things to do, Anzu..."
>>25750559>"What did you need help with?"Let's hear her out before we consider shooting her down.
>>25750559"I'm a little busy, what do you need?"
>>25750559We have no reason to be an arse to her.>Other"Shoot."
>>25750559>"What did you need help with?"
Rolled 18>>25750559>>"What did you need help with?"Doesn't hurt to listen to her at least.
>>25750559>"What did you need help with?""Actually ASKING for help rather than tricking me into it? Anzu, we're getting along better ever day."
>>25750559>>"What did you need help with?"We can't steal Momo's momo's for her if that's what she wants.
>>25750559>"Whaddya need help with? Does it involve BEEFCAKE?"
>>25750559>"Depends on what it is."
>>25750559Nuh uh, we're going to make her work for it.>"I've got things to do, Anzu..."
>>25750559This is it! Our chance! We can fuck her over with this! Revenge! VENGEANGE!But first, this:>"What did you need help with?"Grinning is optional.
>>25750819Why.We're finally starting to work it out.
>>25750844Forgiveness is the best revenge.
>>25750869IT shows you're the bigger person after all. Not sure if that's a concept /tg/ understands or not.
>>25750891Well as we all know, if we'z da biggest den we'z da boss. So if forgiving her makes us bigger, than it also makes us the boss.
>>25750952By that logic, how the hell is Anzu in charge in the first place?Maybe she just acts the Orkiest. She's definitely got the brutal cunning part down pat.
>>25750984She's not in charge anymore.
>>25750984We're like Gork and she's like Mork...or was that the other way around?
>>25750891While I might have gotten a bit excited there, I'm not suggesting we gorge ourselves with her blood, only that we find a nifty way to deliver a little bit of karmic payback. I think she might even appreciate someone playing the same game. Something that doesn't compromise our chances winning in sensha-do.
>>25751053Well one could consider Anzu being in our debt a sort of victory for shoe empathy-challenged.
>>25751114You're telling me we shouldn't have their clothes recolored if they ask us to fetch their laundry from the laundromat or something?
Apparently, the QM of Silencer quest doesn't like you guys. Any reason why?
>>25751253Jesus fucking Christ. Don't start shit. I swear to God.
>>25751204Hell no. Uniforms are expensive.Let her worry for a while first. >>25751253No idea why that'd be the case.
>>25751253I wonder if that troll (not that QM) was starting shit as that happened to VMQ once or twice.
>>25751253We don't care about you or your pathetic attempts to stir up 'drama'. Fuck off.
Rolled 9>>25751253Because you like to make shit up trying to bring about THE END OF ALL QUESTS AS WE KNOW THEM! Seriously no one cares.
>>25745800But aren't we a lady?
Hey guys, anybody know of a WoT clan that would want a decently good heavy tank driver?
>>25751309Oh. Well then, there goes all my dastardly plans to turn this into Car Lesbians but with tanks.
>>25751301Has our appearance been mentioned in-quest? MC could make for a glorious trap.Though nobody has mistaken us for grill so far so the chances are pretty slim
>>25751349According to various anons we are the physical embodiment of FREEDOM that always feels an incredible urge to remove his shirt and perform a beefcake dance. I am incredibly okay with this.
>>25751392Oh dearWe're that one gay guy who all the ladies feel comfortable around him, and thus hang out around.
>>25751346>Tank LesbiansI want this as a splat for CL.
>>25751449No wonder there was so little flusteration when we started buddying up with the girls.
>>25751449Ignore him he's just one of the retards that wants the beefcake dance idea. Though I'm sure such people are probably guy and just in the closet.
You go and lean against the 38(t) with her. "Alright, sure. What did you need to ask."Anzu looks around nervously before she starts. "We weren't supposed to win yesterday." She says flatly. "I should say, I didn't intend for us to win." The grimaces. "But we did win and that's thrown a wrench into my plan."You look at her, completely confused. "What plan?" You say, shaking your head. Anzu looks at Yuzu. "Tell him."Yuzu looks embarassed. "The first prize is the sum of one-hundred thousand yen awarded by the Oorai Chamber of Commerce to the school club who is voted to have the best float." She rattles off from memory. "Second prize is the sum of fifty-thousand yen award-"Anzu quites her with a wave her hand. "The Senshado team needs that money- and my float idea would win easily." Anzu sighs. "Unfortunately, by winning the battle yesterday that was all thrown into the air.">"What are you even talking about?">"...The cuddlefish dance?">"...No. Nonono. No."
>>25751492That's impossible, we're all little girls here.
>>25751492>one of the retards that wants the beefcake dance idea.I think you might be the gay one here.
>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?"Say it after me!BEEFCAKE
>>25751504>>"...The cuddlefish dance?"
>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?""Then make the anglo-lookalikes dance."
>>25751504>>"What the fuck are you even talking about?">>"Intend to lose? That's not what we're here for."
>>25751492Hey, I'm just going off what I'm reading in the thread. But it seems like the fabled beefcake dance is happening anyway sooo>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?"
>>25751504>"I fail to see how tanks or any of us figure into this."
>>25751504>"...No. Nonono. No."Welp, time to put on my loli-strangling gloves.
>>25751504>>"What are you even talking about?"What's the twin-tails midget on about here?
>>25751504>"What are you even talking about?"...>"...The cuddlefish dance?"Then:>"...No. Nonono. No."Too bad we can't use this to get back at her without damaging the cause.
>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?"
If this is going where I think it's going, I think I'm going to need a conductor's outfit as CHOO CHOO.
Soo...would now be a good time to pick out a dance routine and song?My choice:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_fCqg92qks
>>25751649If this was railroaded, we would've lost and could've done nothing to help it. Now we are uncovering a plan that we wouldn't have otherwise.
>>25746901They're full of Africans who go around stabbing people.It's not as happy, healthy or crime free as it used to be when it was more ethnically homogenous. Africans fuck everything up.
>>25751692Still the same basic end result with a bit of info that won't be useable until much later.
>>25751675>Not thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twQlpFrm5iMSon, I am disappoint.
>>25751504By the way it's cuttlefish, not cuddlefishthough they are adorable
>>25751776>implying he's not getting it wrong on purpose just to troll her
>>25751593THIS. SO MUCH THIS.
>>25751760Could go with a classic too:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS9OO0S5w2k
>>25751701/pol/ what are you doing.Go back to your board, /pol/, you are drunk.>>>/pol/
>>25751794Motherfucker how do you misspell a spoken word?
>>25751812You can mispronounce it?
>>25751812By pronouncing it differently?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R15sTIcFPn8Might as well enjoy the view
>>25751829>>25751833I want you to stop and try to pronounce it as both cuttlefish and cuddlefish and tell me exactly how different the two sound.
>>25751898Very similar, but that could just be my accent.
>>25751898Sufficiently different in my accent that they're distinguishable, but similar enough that you could mistake one for the other if you didn't know better.Then again, I speak the Queen's English. Don't know what it would sound like in whichever version of American the MC speaks.
>>25751898Does it even matter?Either way, Anzu will correct us that it's the "Anglerfish Dance," and the MC will still not give a fuck.
>>25751935Exactly. Now how you think someone's gonna notice right off the bat if you pronounce cuttlefish with a D?(answer: they won't)
>>25751983Spelling and pronunciation is serious goddamn business okay
>>25751983This is what I was talking about when I suggested that he was just trolling her.Cuddlefish vs cuttlefish doesn't matter when it's the ANGLERfish dance. (We've also called it the Jellyfish dance.)
>>25752046Jellyfish dance, you say?We may be onto something here.
>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?""Well, to be honest... can we do that anyway? I want to do the BEEFCAKE dance, please."
>>25751760>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twQlpFrm5iMOH GOD YES, THIS
>>25752248Can you shut up with the beefcake already?We get it, you're a faggot. You can stop pushing your interest on everyone else now.
>>25751504>"...The cuddlefish dance?">"...No. Nonono. No."
Rolled 15>>25752272Hes not the only one, anon
>>25752248>I want to do the BEEFCAKE dance, please."This is stupid, and has always been stupid.
>>25752294I don't mind the idea of us participating in the anglerfish dance that much. If everyone else is forced to dance, we join because we're all a team. But actually asking to do it just because "hurr it's funny if he does BEEFCAKE!" is stupid.
As you think back, the plan starts coming together- the seemingly random battle against a superior opponent, Anzu's odd choice of punishment for losing. "The cuttlefish dance?" You say, things finally coming together.Anzu frowns. "The Anglerfish dance- c'mon I named Miho's team after it! It would've had mass appeal- I had Yuzu look at the town's demographics. We'd win easily." She smiles sadly. "Or we would've, but now I've got nobody except Yuzu and Momo to dance. A hundred-thousand yen would've gone a long way towards helping the team.""So what? You want my crew to do the dance on top of Black Jack for the parade?" You say, half-sarcastically.Anzu frowns some more. "No- we thought about it but there's enough people old enough to remember the War that having an American tank driving down the main strip would've thrown off the numbers...""So then what do you want me to do?" You say, for some reason horrified at what that could've entailed..."Talk to the girls- they trust you! If you could convince even some of them to volunteer we'd have an excellent purse that we could use for armaments, maybe even a new tank!"Yeah, this is going to go down well...
Next time on Girls und Panzer Quest...>We meet Darjeeling's crew.>Momo is getting a bit better. (Only a bit...)>We plan breakfast!Girls und Panzer Quest will return Tuesday at it's normal time between 5-6PM PST.Follow me on twitter for schedule updates and to be notified when threads go up!https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>25752469Why bring Black Jack when we can just dance on the float?
>>25752469Assign the dance duty to some of the non-senshado students then, if only for the indirect support they'll give to the tanking teams. They'll be too busy training and improving themselves to worry about this.
>>25752503You keep using that word.I don't think it means what you think it means.
>>25752518Because it's a tank.
>>25752534Let's see... we did all we can to avoid the Anglerfish dance.... and it's looking like we'll have to do it anyways for reasons that seem freshly pulled out of the ass.
>>25752549Yeah, if anglerfish dance is all there is to this quest to you, sure, I can see how you would feel that way.
>>25752549If they can actually afford to get decent tanks instead of the shit they have, I'm almost okay with the railroad.
>>25752592It's not all there is, but alot of effort was put in AVOIDING it.>>25752598If he's going to railroad this, I dobut he'll let the school become a second black forest or Pravada.
>>25752612They don't need to be a Black Forest, they just have to stop being the only ones using tanks the others wouldn't even strip down for scraps.
>>25752645But we aren't down to driving Italian yet...
>>25752645well the same thing'd be bound to happen if the overall quality went up to such an extent. I doubt Oorai in the anime would ahve came up with such interesting tactics if they weren't underdogs spec wise.
>>25752678hey, they had some great ideas, pity they never built them...speaking of great ideas, I just found my wallpaper of the Bugatti P-100, so much hhnnngg
>>25752682They're still underdogs, spec wise. Especially since the other teams are apparently getting upgrades since Black Jack is with Oarai.They can still be driving bad tanks, just not TERRIBLE tanks.
Absolutely no one will volunteer to do the anglerfish dance. We should just have everyone do the Time-warp or Macarena, just something that won't give them psychological breakdowns.
>>25752742I'm sure we could find a few.
>>25752742Do note that they weren't in the body-suits at the time, but to be honest I like the dance in uniform better; swaying skirts and all that goodness.Is it the volleyball team that we wanted to get a Hellcat for? Because we might be able to put this money towards that if they help out.
>>25752977A Hundred thousand yen is basically chump change.It's like, what, $1000 USD give or take a bit. It'll pay for one match's fuel and ammo and that's about it.
>>25753143It's still better than getting nothing, and seeing how this school's geared up we're gonna need every penny.Say, does Japan have a lottery like the Mega Millions in place? If we won, even though odds are stupendously against us, that cash would allow us to completely revamp the entire Senshado program.
