"Y'know..." You say, whiping your greasy, grimey hands on a rag as you admire you and Miho's work. "...Those Christie suspensions aren't too difficult to work, once you figure it out." Neither of you had much experience with the Christie-type suspension- both the German tanks that Miho had worked with and the Pershing had torsion-bar suspensions.You are the Commander of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and now that you've effectively doubled the automotive team's manpower, the Excelsior was really starting to come together. Yukari and Patrick had the roadwheels done of the left side, and now that you and Miho were done with the right side suspension, they'd be able to do the same on this side. Meanwhile, Rose was helping install the gun and sights into the turret.Overall, it was starting to look less like pieces of armor and machinery and much more like a proper tank. All this was done with a minimum of drama, horseplay and general grabassery. Which reminds you- you haven't seen Richard or Roy in more than two hours.>We need to find Richard before blushing and innocent hand-holding graduates to hugging and accidental eye contact!>Find Roy and maybe figure out what he's been up to at night!>Eh, who cares about them, we've got more important things to discuss!

It happens that Rose pokes her head out at the opportune time to make the decision for you. "Russells, you heard from Roy yet? He's not answering his phone." She says, annoyed. "He's better with wiring than me and he's probably off visiting his paramour."You nod. "So, find Roy, figure out who this strange girl is and return him to the garage so he can lend his expertise." You shrug. Really, screwing with Roy and finding out his secrets would've been reason enough for you to take on this quest. "We're going to need a guide." You say flatly.Rose crawls up out of the turret and drops down to the ground. "Exactly. But who?" You think- really almost anyone is going to know the terrain of the ship better than you.>Miho- she's whip-smart and crazy good at getting in people's heads.>Yukari- helpful, smart and knows people.>Anzu- She'll know all the hangouts and date places.

>>26649241>Anzu- She'll know all the hangouts and date places.Anzu probably knows the ship best out of all the choices.

You turn to Miho as she puts the cap on a jar of all-purpose lubricant that seems to dwarf her small frame. She struggles to firmly secure the lid. "Hey Miho, wanna come help us retrieve and potentially embarass our loader?" You say a bit louder than is probably needed."Me?" She squeeks, blushing a bit as she looks down at the floor. "Why me? Hana or Yukari would know a lot more about Oorai than me..." She kicks the floor, embarassed at the sudden attention. You roll your eyes. "Yes, you-" You stop for a second. "Listen, you were able to guess where I would take Black Jack and set up an ambush twice. You know how people think, you can get in their heads!" You say. "There's a probably a dozen places he could've gone, but we don't have time to check a dozen places..." If you want to catch him in the act, anyway.Miho looks at you, then at Rachel, then back to you and blushes again. "But I don't know anything about him!" She says...>We need some cunning to help Miho's deduction.>Encourage her- she can do this!>Other.

>>26649929You let you gaze sweep over the restful face of Yukari, your wife in holy matrimony of half a decade now. There are nights when sleep will simply not come to you, and this was one of them.And you know the reason why; you weren't cut out for a life so peaceful, the soul of a man of battle yearns for the clarity of war, the honesty of combat.For so long you've kept it in check, denied yourself. No longer can you persuade yourself that it isn't worth it. You need it, need this.You place a soft kiss on Yukari's brow, causing her to mumble a bit in her sleep. You wish you could bring her with you, but know that she hadn't become like that, like us. Sensha-do doesn't break you, wouldn't be much of a sport if it did.Stealing one last glance of the light of your life in the dark bedroom, you close the door.
>>26651726It's a couple of hours' drive to Oarai, yet the sun won't be rising in at least the next four. You left your phone behind, no one is going to be able to make you turn back now. Streetlights floating past your vision.Nearing your destination, you park your car and walk the rest of the way to the looming monument. A memorial for the decommissioned school-carrier that once housed Oarai's Girls' High School. The school had shut down a few years after you had won the national championship with the girls.As you're reading, something catches your eye next to the inscription on the monument. A lone Parabellum 1908 in its holster lies seemingly abandoned on the waist-high stone block. This couldn't have been here for longer than-"That Anzu really cared about our school, didn't she?" A question sounds off behind you in the air of night's end."Could've fooled me. It wasn't until you look back on it all that you stop thinking of her as a tiny bringer of pestilence." You answer to the voice."First, I'd like to apologize. I knew you wouldn't be able to stay away for too long yet I did nothing to-"You cut her off with a sharp laugh. "It's in our blood, isn't it? I tried so hard to cast it off, y'know. Yet here I am." You say as pick up the weapon from its stone pedestal."It couldn't be helped.""I really hate it when you people say that." You respond as you begin to turn to face your counterpart."I know." She smiles."On the count of five." You both say simultaneously.captcha: mpaneno WesternShit.

"Miho, if any of us can guess where he'd go, it's you." You say, putting a reassuring hand on her shoulder and smile. "You can do this.""Besides" Rose chimes in, "I know everything there is to know about that nerd. If you need to know anything you can ask me!" There are only a few things that really make Rose chipper like this- rich chocolate deserts, too much coffee and opportunities to screw with her twin brother. "If you need any information you can ask me!"Miho looks down to the hanger's concrete floor, kicking it a few more times. "I... I don't know. Won't he be mad if we interrupt him if he's with someone?" She says.You look at Rose, then back to Miho. "Yep. That's why we're doing it." "It wouldn't be half as fun if it didn't drive him nuts." Rose says. "As the older sibling by two and a half minutes, it's my duty to screw with him whenever I can."Miho looks at you both like your a few shells short of a full load-out, but then smiles. "If you think I can do it, let's go!" She says, suddenly excited. "So, what does Roy like to do in his spare time?">He's huge nerd, always reading about Panz-I mean tanks and history.>Is he still playing that World of Tanks game?>He enjoys being off by himself a lot.

"Hm..." You think for a second. Roy is quiet, more intellectually inclined and... "Rose, he still bitching about World of Tanks?" You ask your gunner."'SerB says working...'" She makes a dramatic drunken hiccup and a Russian accent while also mocking her brother's voice. "...as intended, Comrades!" She rolls her eyes. "Don't know why he plays that game if all he does is complain..."Miho thinks for a moment, but then she snaps her fingers. "Saori mentioned something about a video-games club that meets after school!" She says. "Probably the computer lab." She says. "Clubs have to meet on school grounds, so that's really the only place they'd be able to meet."It doesn't take long for your group to find the lab on campus, and it seems to be about as popular as the Volleyball Club. Your group stalks into the darkened computer hall."IS on our left." A female voice says quickly and quietly. "Push him?""Hold on, reloading..." Says another. "Alright go, get past him!""Careful... Careful, watch your cover, Artillery just missed you." Says a third. "River path is stalled, we're going to need to push harder to flank...">Lights!

You are overcome by the desire to throw on the lights and shout 'GOTCHA!' at Roy, but common sense prevails in your mind- probably best not to interrupt nerds while they pursue their... nerdery. Instead you quietly enter the room and walk down along the tables until you find a computer screen with the back of a head silouetted.She's tall, that much is for sure, with long blonde hair that pools down at the back of her chair as her hands move over the keyboard with a cat-ear headband perched on top of her head. "Finish the IS... We need to get over to the road before the river-path comes apart completely."You startled when the third voice you heard comes out of the computer's speakers. "Do we need to flank? Want to just cap instead?""Not worth the chance- we flank them and we'll wipe them out..." You've actually got a passing knowledge of the game- Roy had you and Patrick playing with him for about a month a while back- you'd never made it past getting a KV before you'd lost interest due to owning and fighting in your own real tank. What you do realise is that the girl's strategy is sound- there's enough of her team left to show that they if they aren't flanked and killed, they can easily split their force to protect their own base while taking yours. You and Miho watch for a few more minutes as the game progresses- Cat-Ears' aggressive strategy pays off as they managed to get behind the opposing force, enemy tanks moved back and force, unsure whether to push forward or turn to defend.The game is over at that point- though the game ends about a minute later.>"That would've been impressive if it weren't a video game...">"Who are you and why didn't you try out for Senshado?">Introduce yourself.>Other.
>>26652900>Introduce yourself.Followed immediately by:>"Who are you and why didn't you try out for Senshado?"but a tad less aggressively, more in the tones of "You're good at this! Care to try out the real thing?"

>>26652900>Introduce yourself."Hi I'm commander Russles of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack", have you thought about trying out Senshado?"
>>26652900>"That would've been impressive if it weren't a video game...">"Who are you and why didn't you try out for Senshado?">Introduce yourself.>Other.I'm Jim Russells and are you buying my loader a farm?
Rolled 1>>26652945Do we give them the I-Go?
>>26652958No we give them the dick.I swear, you think like a harem protagonist.
>>26652990A Dicker Max you say? I wouldn't be surprised if there was one on the bottom of the ship.
>>26652900"I want to stroke your ears, my dear."
>>26652990I doubt ANYONE on this board is enough of a genuinely nice guy to be a harem protagonist. Those guys have the patience of SAINTS. I mean would YOU be able put up with a pirate, a goddess, two princesses, and a ditzy cop all freeloading at your house?
>>26652958I'm more for giving the tank to the Sodoclones, actually.Reasons:>It's pretty much the most "No Fun" tank out of Oarai's line-up.>It'll get relegated to lobbing smoke shells, as discussed in the past threads. Like Riot Police with teargas.>Endless puns the Pershing crew can make about "I go..."
>>26653048The Dickermax isn't legal in senshado.
>>26653069We haven't got the sodoclones yet tho
>>26653070But it could be made legal. Some plates in the right places...
we can tell her that if we get our hands on more tanks we would be more than happy to have her try it out, if she can find more people interested that would be even better!
>>26653096But we've interacted with them. Multiple times.Way more than the gamer girl in front of us.
>>26653070Can we have this one, please? *puppy eyes*
>>26653136Well, we know we are going to have a spare tank... something that could be used to train crews...Having at least one spare crew would be beneficial as it would mean that we do not have to worry if one crew had an accident or was ill the day of a match...
>>26653070but what about the O-I japanese super heavy tank?
>>26653175derp forgot image
>>26653175never actually completed 1 prototype, just a bunch of half assembled parts they destroyed because HONORORORORRORORABURRRRR
>>26653188It was never proven but there were rumors that one was completed.
>>26653196there were documents approving its guns and turrets to be used for coastal defense, before being mounted on an incomplete hull, the engines were destroyed and all thats left are some track links (that are like 1m wide) and half a roadwheel or two
>>26653184Why am I not surprised it's the Japanese who makes a tank stupider than the Maus?
>>26653251inb4 the MIDF Wehrmaboos show up to try and argue that it wasn't the single most retarded tank ever built.
>>26653251O-I isn't even the classification, it's just the sound a person makes when one sees it.
>>26653260you could do a lot worse.
>>26653311could be a mark-1
>>26653260built, yeah although some of the "experimental" and "homemades" might give it a run for its money on the "retarded/useless" scale.Designed however, no, no, oh God, hell no; the Maus was both tame and ultimately realisable compared to some more "outlandish" ideas...
>>26653333>Maus was both tame and ultimately realisable compared to some more "outlandish" ideas...Hey, they built one fully armed and operational Maus. It probably even saw combat in defence of the High command Bunkers. That's got to count for something.
>>26653333Well yeah, the Ratte was the same thing but WORSE.
>>26653363and they had another hull ready to mount a turret and hit the battlefield, and 9 other empty hulls waiting for engines...
>>26653381And that's what propels the Maus past things like the Valiant. They actually thought they had a winner on their hands. The retardation isn't just in the design, it's in everything surrounding the tank.
>>26653333Goes to show that just because someone is allowed to (try to) design a tank, doesn't mean they're not retarded...(Also, never underestimate human stupidity...)
last post coming in ~15 mins
>>26653381The turret-less prototype (V1, Prototype V2 was the complete one) was actually assigned as a support tender to V2 in their final and only action, according to the orders filed at the time. It was supposed to act as an ammo carrier and as a power generator for the Maus's deep-fording system.
>>26653363> It probably even saw combat in defence of the High command Bunkers.uhh nope, it was in the process of getting loaded onto a train to go and defend Berlin, but the Russians got to train first, saw very limited combat before being knocked out.the Maus in Kubinka is actually the made of the second production hull with the turret from the one knocked out in combat
>>26653404Either way, it still saw actual combat, which is the salient point.
>>26653413And lost.The Maus has a 100% loss rate in actual combat conditions.
>>26653413It gave combat a shy look and a little wave.I really like the Maus design.
As the girl peruses the after-battle screen, you finally find your opening to say something. "Afternoon!" You say happily."GYA!" She shouts, picking up her keyboard and swinging wide around- You duck back and it hits nothing but air. "Oh my!" She says, realising what she's done. "Oh... I'm so sorry!" She adjusts the thick prescription glasses. "I- I was still coming down off the battle and you startled me..." You blink, realising that you'd jumped back behind Rose. You smoothly step back in front, hoping that nobody noticed that. Miho is cover a smile with an obviously placed hand to her mouth to stifle a cough. Rose just rolls her eyes. "You're the American! With the Pershing?" She says.You nod your head. "Commander Russells." You say with a polite nod."That was a good choice to continue your attack into the enemy." Miho says politely.She nods before speaking quietly. "I like to play a bit more aggressively than my platoonmates..." She admits, dipping her head. "Oh! I'm sorry! I'm so rude, my name is Nekota!">"With that kind of tactical sense, you should've tried out for the Senshado team!">"Have you seen my loader, Roy? He plays this game sometimes!">Other

>>26653480Nekota seems a bit shy for that. I mean this girl intentionally hides her face and build with crappy glasses and bad posture, I doubt she's Roy's squeeze.
>>26653464>"With that kind of tactical sense, you should've tried out for the Senshado team!"
>>26653564True, but love can bloom on the virtual battlefield.Also we have no actual confirmation that it's a romantic connection, just that he was up all night texting/messaging her. Which, yknow, nerds will totally do in the course of friendship
>>26653543>It weighs too much, it's too slow, it's too big a target, it has no machine guns to defend against infantry, the main gun is comically oversized when a smaller gun would do the job better, it's too expensive, need I go on?No, but at least the Maus would have been able to take out other tanks in a tank vs. tank engagement, which was it's primary goal.Whereas with some other "tanks", mainly japanese ones, you'd probably have more chance proceeding with a satchel charge on foot!
>>26653564This makes me think of a fluffy tank nerd for some reason... Considering how much we already got that one out of her shell, I'd say Roy has all his chances!
>>26653594>Maus would have been able to take out other tanksExcept for that one time when it totally didn't, and got it's ass kicked by normal forces.And that's a false dichotomy as normal tanks do that job just fine, BETTER than the Maus in fact, because they have that important thing called "mobility". The Maus is practically stationary.
>>26653623Yukari is normal shy.Nekota is a borderline Hikki. The girl had never even met the other two WoT girls face-to-face until their first appearance onscreen.
>>26653659Although in GuPQ-verse considering they're in a club they might've met
Threadly-reminder that we can oneshot the Maus.

You pull a chair from a neighboring computer and take a seat. "You should've signed up for the senshado club!" You say. "I mean, you know more about aggressive movement than most of our team commanders..." And it's true- she looked at a tactical situation and immediately was able to identify the most correct course of action, a rare skill among even trained tankers."Oh, I wouldn't be very good in a real tank..." She says, sitting back down. "I've never even seen inside a real tank...""You and half of the other teams..." Rose comments. "You'd have made a great tank commander!""What's going on over there?" A voice calls over the speakers. "We're ready to fight, Nekota! Ready up!"Nekota looks back to the screen and presses a button on the keyboard. "Sorry! Sorry! Some of the senshado members showed up..." Nekota comments. "I'll be ready to go in a second." She releases the button and turns back to you. "Sorry, senshado sounds like a lot of fun, but I don't think I would've been much of a help. I only just play tanks online..."
>>26653791"Come on, it'll be fun. I promise." BJ, do we have a lady-killing smile? If we do, we should break it out now. Like, right now.

>>26653839>this time on GuPQuest>we timeskip building a tank>we walk a bit, and watch someone play video games>we don't find the person we were looking for
>>26653636Son, if you consider the engagement at Kummersdorf (which happened near Schweinfurt) a real battle, you should reconsider, because a bunch of engineers and field-testers does not an army make in the best of cases, and even less when outnumbered ten to one to one by a professional army. According to Fleischer (one of the few historians to write about the testing grounds) both Maus prototypes were sent out, but neither saw any action, with one being seized by the russians and anothe being blown up by it's crew before even reaching their intended destination.And no, this is not a false dichotomy. While there's no shadow of a doubt the Maus design was heavily flawed as a MBT (unsurprising, considering the original idea was for the Maus to be a semi-mobile fortification rather than a full fledged tank, and only became the latter on insistence of Hitler), there were designs that failed at being useful in any role, except for "police" work or heavy tractor, because they were too slow, undergunned, and underarmored to be of any use on a battlefield!
While we all are talking about bad tank concepts...The TOG II* was absolutely shitty and even the British dropped it.The Valiant actively tried to kill its driver and the Brits also dropped that after one test.The M3 LEE was a horrible tank. Everyone agrees that it was terrible. Despite its victories.Every damn Cruiser tank before the Cromwell was a terrible idea from the start. And yet no one acknowledged that political horseshit of an idea was terrible until after the Cold War.Tanks a lot, 4chan.
>>26654058The M3 Lee was ALWAYS known to be shit, but everyone NEEDED the 75mm gun it had.
>>26654058>Every damn Cruiser tank before the Cromwell was a terrible idea from the start.The 6pdr Crusader III wasn't that bad.

So is Roy trying to get with Oreo or Erwin? What say you gents?
>>26656389Not just RDDT. RDDT*3*.
>>26657353I'm not entirely sure he could handle Oreo's oreos.
