> August 30th, 2013You are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President with the task of saving Lafayette Girls Academy by winning a Tankery World Tournament. It is now 7:00 O’Clock in the morning and you are just waking up, thankfully to the sound of your alarm and not to the sound of a Friday morning DJ who thinks sticking their IPod up to the microphone is a way to broadcast music.You stretch out your arms as you rise out of bed. Of course, if you wanted to save your school by participating in a tank based tournament, you actually need tanks.> SUBQUEST UNLOCKED: > Panzerjäger> Find Lafayette Girls Academy’s 8 Tanks.You’re not gonna find any tanks in your underwear though, time to get showered and dressed.What shall you wear?> School Uniform. Gotta look presidential.> T-Shirt, Cargo shorts. Shit’s gonna be dirty.> Sundress, cardigan. Probably the most impractical for what’s going on today, but damn if sundress season ain’t going out without a bang.
>>27864045>T-Shirt, Cargo shorts. Shit’s gonna be dirty.Looking presidential don't mean shit if you aren't getting anything done.
The previous thread for those just joining.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27812454/
>>27864045>> T-Shirt, Cargo shorts. Shit’s gonna be dirty.Also, am I the only one who yesterday realised something... G. Pool, of Lafayette... Lafayette G. Pool. (please tell me this was intentional)
>>27864120> T-Shirt, Cargo shorts. Shit’s gonna be dirty.Fuck presidentiality and sundress season, it’s time for practicality.You take a quick shower then get yourself dressed. Come to think of it, the alternatives are the only other clothes you’ve actually brought aboard. You need to remind yourself to buy more clothes, because that’s what girls do. Now it was time for this girl to find some tanks.Just incase you need some long-range spotting, you also decide on bringing Grandpa’s binocs. Hopefully 70 years of disuse hasn’t affected it none.Now it was time to hunt for tanks, for serious.Actually, it’d probably be a good idea to wake your best good friend Kitten. There’s no way in hell she’d ever willingly wake up this early.What shall you do?> Go hunting for tanks.> Wake Kitten.
>>27864254>> Wake Kitten.Rise and shine!
>>27864254Wake Kitten.As obnoxiously upbeat as possible.
>>27864281> Wake Kitten.Welp, time to go wake up the cat then.Your dorm is only a floor above her’s so it’s not the biggest walk. Room 16 on the ground floor of the dorm building was where she was based out of. If you know anything about Kitten, she’s probably asleep after a night’s gaming.Nerd.You give a quick knock on her door. Nothing.You knock again. Still no response.You’ve got a couple options here.> Break into her dorm. Not the first time you’ve done it, certainly not the last.> Keep knocking on her door. The repetition will rouse her like a bedbug infestation.> Call her on her cellphone. Probably the most sensible option but then again sensible was kind of boring.
>>27864396> Break into her dorm. Not the first time you’ve done it, certainly not the last.Kick in the door.
>>27864396Break in.Wet towel strategy.
>>27864396> Break into her dorm. Not the first time you’ve done it, certainly not the last.we probably have a spare key around here...
>>27864396>Break into her dorm. Not the first time you’ve done it, certainly not the last.
>>27864396> Call her on her cellphone. Probably the most sensible option but then again sensible was kind of boring.
>>27864501> Break into her dorm. Not the first time you’ve done it, certainly not the last.Eh, carpe diem.With all the might of a 16-year old schoolgirl, you kick the door in.> You broke into Kitten’s home.“KITTEN! IT’S YOUR BEST GOOD FRIEND!” You shout as you walk inside.Like your dorm, Kitten’s place was empty save for the desk which housed her gaming computer and things like the bed or the kitchen. Unlike your place though, it was sparkling clean. Kitten liked things clean, and whenever she wasn’t gaming or sleeping, she was cleaning something.Of course she wasn’t cleaning now, she was fast asleep at her desk, clad in her school uniform, her long brown hair rustled around her, apparently not having been woken by your break in.“Kitten,” you shake her shoulder. No response.“Kitten,” you say again. Still no response. You decide to break out the big guns.“Carol Smith!” Kitten immediately shoots up from her desk and into the floor.“I’mawakeI’mawakewhatsita-“ her face of panic is quickly replaced by indifference when she realizes you’re standing over her. “Oh, it’s Lara Croft. You come here to fulfill my repressed homosexuality?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>27864639>> NeutralNo Kitten, lets go find tanks.
>>27864639> BoastIT'S TANK FINDING TIME!
…we're kind of a bitch aren't we?
>>27864708Your friends don't kick down your door to wake you or shanghai you into doing things?
>>27864639> BoastUnlike you I've got other things to worry about than dyke fantasies and RPGS
>>27864664> Boast“Yeah, Kitten. I’m Lara Croft, and I’m here to fuck your brains out until you turn straight from sheer exhaustion.”Kitten scoffs. “Funny.” She stands up, and immediately the height you hold over her becomes clear. Almost a full seven inches. Of course you’d never tease her about her height, that’s middle school stuff. Her hobbies were fair game though. She looks past you at her door. “You break my door again?”“Yep.”“I have to get that fixed you know?”“Yep.”She sighs, wiping her eyes. “Let me guess, you’re here because we need to go find tanks.”“Yep.”“Great. Fine. Let’s go.” She dusts herself off and follows your lead out the door. As you head outside, Kitten instinctively raises her arm over her eyes. The sun is an evil mistress to the unprepared.Now it was time to call up your staff and find out where you all would meet.> Call Nancy, your VP.> Call Ramirez, your Secretary.> Call Lisa, your Treasurer.
>>27864639>BoastNeigh! I have come to awaken your repressesed Tankuality!
>>27864806We're all secretly tank-sexual.Yes, even the soccer-moms
>>27864802>> Call Nancy, your VP.
>>27864802> Call Ramirez, your Secretary.
>>27864802>Call Ramirez, your Secretary.RAMIREZ, ASSEMBLE THE MINIONS TO MEET AT THAT CAFE THAT MAKES PANCAKES SHAPED LIKE TANKS.
>>27864802> Call Ramirez, your Secretary."RAMIREZ, FIND THOSE TANKS"Yeah...I'm just gonna go...
>>27864802> Call Nancy, your VP.> Call Ramirez, your Secretary.> Call Lisa, your Treasurer.CALLTANKINGALLOFTHEM!
>>27864878> Call Ramirez, your Secretary.Time to call up your ever punctual Latina. You gesture Kitten to follow you as you take out your cellphone and dial her number.She answers. “Hey, Prez.”“Ramirez, good to hear from you. Where are we all meeting?”“Uh, over at Lake de Grasse. Nancy already brought us some breakfast. Lisa ain’t here yet though but she says she’ll be soon.”“Righto, talk to you later.” You hang up.Kitten trails next to you, slouching and slacking like any good nerd. “So,” she says. “That your staff?”“Yep. To be honest, I don’t actually know them all that much. We only know each other from last year’s elections.”Kitten nods. “Are they nice?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>27864979>BoastBest damn staff a prez can ever have.I think...maybe?
>>27864979>NeutralLike we said we don't know them all that well.
>>27864979>>27864979> BoastMY people.…You better respect 'em or I'll kick your pasty ass.
>>27864979> Boastwe must have faith in my staff!
>>27864979My dad taught me to always only say the best of those under you to anyone outside the group. > Boast
>>27864999> Boast“Of course they’re nice! Nancy in particular is a real doll. Lisa and Ramirez are pretty chill too from what I can understand. Hell, they’re probably the best damn staff a girl can ask for!”Kitten nods, breaking into a slight smile. “So I hear.”> Kitten will remember that.“Anyway, we gotta head up to Lake de Grasse, that’s where we’re meeting,” you say. Kitten’s smile immediately fades.“That’s too far…” she mumbles.“It’s only a half mile.”“A half mile too far.”You sight. “You know, it’s conversations like this that make me wonder why you’re not totally fat.”“Gotta be cute for the internet.”“Figures. But come on, Nancy’s a real good cook. She’s got breakfast prepared for us.”Kitten simply grunts. You decide to let it rest for now. You’re on the hunt for tanks, the most womanly thing anyone could imagine. Nothing can stop you now.Well except for those five freshmen who look lost yet again.> Keep going, you got panzers to jäger.> Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.
> we actually managed to kick a door in…not bad.
>>27865157>Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.Hey now, that's not nice. Freshmen aren't stupid...mostly
>>27865157>> Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.
>>27865157> Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.Whiteknight mode… ACTIVATED.
>>27865157>Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.And besides, if this goes well we can shanghai them into helping us jager some panzers.
>>27865157>> Keep going, you got panzers to jäger.Panzer zu jagen, if anythingBut let's help the Freshmen first, we need good publicity, yo
>>27865157> Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.Gotta keep that rep' up, nigga.
>>27865197> Help the freshmen. Freshmen may be stupid, but they can learn.Those poor freshmen. They look like lost puppies.Fuck it.“Hey girls!” you call out. They all look at you and immediately recognize you.“Hey, it’s that helpful girl from yesterday!” one of them cries. They all rush across the street and pretty much swarm you with attention and cries for help. You’re just drowning in pussy right now.That same girl waves off the others and offers her hand. “We didn’t introduce ourselves last time. I’m Cathy. Those girls are Ashleigh, Tabitha, Tara, and Andrea. It’s so nice to meet you. What's your name?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>27865182Maybe it was one of those traditional paper thin sliding doors
>>27865378> Politewe are the prezident after all.
>>27865378>PoliteAs an aside OP, I see what you did there with the names.
>>27865465What did he do for us dull people?
>>27865407> Polite“My name is Gertrude Pool.” You shake her hand. The freshmen are all smiles and sunshine. Oh, innocence. A year of being on academy ship with no men will turn them into women, or lesbians.“Hey,” Andrea speaks up. “Aren’t you the Sophomore class president?”You nod. Modesty was the best policy. “I am, actually.”Ashleigh says, “That’s so cool! Do you like, get to choose where the schoolship goes?”“No, that’s the senior President’s job.” Much as you hated having to say it, it really was. TIME TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT. “You girls look like you needed help with something.”Cathy nods. “Yeah, we were looking for the Club Fair.”Oh freshmen. “That’s not until School starts on September 3rd.”All of them go, “ooooooohhhhh…” Ashleigh says, “we’re stupid.”Cathy nervously chuckles. “Well, I suppose that’s out of the way. What are you up to?”> RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITY> Y/N?
>>27865531Yes. We require more serf-, I mean teammates.
>>27865382Unlikely, we're in freedomland. Dorm rooms don't slide here.
Loli team go!
>>27865580Oh right, forgot we aren't Nipponese
>>27865586You mean pony team.
>>27865631Yep. Although, I have to admit the reference is kinda oblique.
>>27865631The names are all the first names of the MLP VA's.
>>27865619Oh hell no.
>>27865656Fuck damnit OPThis is why no one likes bronies, just have to cramp their shit into everything
>>27865619nice let's keep it.
>>27865551> Y“Well…” you begin. “Me and my best good friend here were actually on our way to look for tanks!”A couple of whispers and gasps. You’ve got them. “Actually,” you continue, “You girls think you can help me with that? We can talk shop about the new Tankery Club I’m opening up this year.”Tara says, “Tankery? Isn’t that for dykes?”Kitten coughs. “Actually, it’s just a woman dominated sport, lesbianism has nothing to do with…” the attention from you and the curious freshmen who look like they finally noticed her gradually shuts her up. “… yeah.”You clear your throat. “Yeah, my best good friend Kitten is right. I won’t sugarcoat it though. It’ll involve a lot of manual labor. You girls in or out?”They look pensive. After a moment, Cathy speaks up. “I’ll do it.”Tara and Andrea immediately follow her lead. “We’ll do it too.”Ashleigh nods. “Sure, could be fun.”Tabitha looks unmoved. “Eh. Whatever, I’ll do it too.”> CREW UNLOCKED> FRESHMEN TEAM> CURRENT DEFAULT CALLSIGN: TEAM NOT-A-CHANCE-IN-HELL> You can change the callsign for different crews at anytime.“Right then, follow me girls. We got to find some tanks first.”> Head straight to Lake de Grasse.> Get to know the crew as you walk.
>>27865712>> Head straight to Lake de Grasse.
>>27865712> Get to know the crew as you walk.
>>27865712>Get to know the crew as you walk.
>>27865712> You can change the callsign for different crews at anytime.Change callsign to Team Ponyfags
>>27865824Belay that.Let's not get angry at cartoon here.
>>27865839Very well. In that case, just>Get to know the crew as you walk
>>27865839Let's get angry at OP being a fucking faggot for bringing this shit despite knowing what a shitstorm it would cause
We should set up Kitten with a cute underclassman. She's a bro but too nerdy to get any herself. WINGMAN MODE ACTIVATE.
>>27865854You really seem to be the only one currently angry and it is a rather obscure reference. I had to go look it up. Just leave it be man and enjoy a GuP quest that doesn't move at glacial speed.
>>27865877Hell no. Kitten belongs to us. Also, the freshmen seem kind of homophobic.
>>27865854You wouldn't have even known if some anon hadn't brought it up. Calm down.>>27865877No. Minimal lesbian shenanigans.
>>27865877Nah, we should set her up with one of the inevitable jock-girls.Then take one of the others for ourselves
>>27865899>You wouldn't have even known if some anon hadn't brought it up. Calm down.Aiigh.Just don't like seeing this shit brought up for no reason.Gonna stop bringing it up
>>27865899Yeah, I should have known better.I have failed in my duty. I must commit hara-kiri
>>27865753> Get to know the crew as you walk.“So, you girls have an easy time getting on Lafayette?”Cathy seems to be the spokesperson for the group, as the rest of them simply talk amongst themselves, with Kitten trailing close behind. Cathy says, “Oh, it was a hell of a thing. First you have to go through MEPS, then you have to sign waivers, and pass all kinds of physicals, not to mention the entrance exams. It’s real lucky all five of us got in.”Andrea says, “We wanted to go to Adna Chaffee Academy but their exams were way too rigorous. Tara wanted to go to that tech school Walter Christie but she got waitlisted.”“Waitlisting,” you say, shaking your head. “Always a killer.”“Still,” Cathy says, “it’s a great opportunity being on an Academyship. And we’re real lucky to have run into you.”“Oh, we were all freshmen once,” you say. “Hopefully your stay at Lafayette is a good one.” You immediately want to take those words back. Too late now though.Lake de Grasse was now just up ahead. It was a large lake in a park made for the people living on Lafayette. All kinds of people were going about their day, students, dependents, faculty, the lot. You could clearly see Nancy and Ramirez who were staring intently at the lake, discussing something out of earshot.> Greet them and introduce the new crew.> Greet them and ask them what the hell they’re talking about.
>>27866001> Greet them and introduce the new crew.> Greet them and ask them what the hell they’re talking about.Do both.
>>27866001> Greet them and introduce the new crew.
>>27866001Why not do both? Greet them, introduce Kitten and the freshmen, and then ask what's going on.
>>27865959No. You are not worthy of such power.>>27866001>Greet them and introduce the new crew.
>>27865877We're setting her up with a cute tank, remember?>>27866001>> Greet them and introduce the new crew.First things first.
>>27866074Well, tanks were often thought of as female weren't they...Actually, were they even thought of as female or was it more of a "this is a tool"?
>>27866001> Greet them and introduce the new crew.> Greet them and ask them what the hell they’re talking about.we can still do both
>>27866101Vehicles in general are referred to as "she" in most countries' military cultures.
>>27866101Everything is thought of as a female. The Germans ,IIRC, thought of ships as male but I'm probably remembering incorrectly.OP any chance you live CT? Writing style and your interest remind me of someone.
>>27866050> Why not both.“Nancy, Ramirez!” you call out as your group approaches. They look at you and are instantly surprised at the gaggle of freshmen following you. “Girls, this is ‘Kitten’ Smith my best good friend. These-“ you gesture to the freshmen, “girls are our new crew. Cathy, Tara, Andrea, Ashleigh, and Tabitha.”Ramirez nods in a “not bad” sort of way. Nancy immediately gets to work shaking everyone’s hands and in general just being nice. You walk up to Ramirez and ask, “what’s with you guys staring at the lake?”Ramirez says, as if nothing is wrong with it, “There’s a tank in the lake.”Your mood picks up. You’ve already got a tank, even though it’s at the bottom of a lake. “Really! Great!” Your mood gradually drops. “… how the fuck are we gonna get it out?”Ramirez shrugs. “Dunno.”You ask, “How did you even find it?”“Long story. Let’s just say I accidentally pushed Nancy in, she was under for a minute, and she came up and said, ‘there’s a tank in the lake.’”“… that wasn’t long at all.”> “Where’s Lisa?”> “What do you think about the new crew?”> “Other.”
>>27866162Except Russia I believe.Or else Tom Clancy lied to me.
>>27866167Pretty sure ships are female over here.
>>27866170>“Other."Anybody know where we can grab a couple Hiluxi? We can hitch each of them to the back of another like a train, drive them into the lake in reverse, then tow the tank out!But seriously,>“Where’s Lisa?”
>>27866167In Germany a ship is "It" but if you call it by its name it's a "she". Das Schiff. Die MS Hosenboden.>>27866101>Well, tanks were often thought of as female weren't they...Yep! >>27866170>> “What do you think about the new crew?”RAPID FOCUS SHIFT.
>>27866170>“Where’s Lisa?”>“What do you think about the new crew?”>"Where's my food? I was promised food!"
>>27866170So where'd Lisa go? Also, where's my breakfast?
>>27866238Well then, thank you kind gentleman for educating me. I always enjoy learning random little tidbits of useless information.
>>27866170> “Where’s Lisa?”The boat probably has cranes, if all else fails rope and man power.
>>27866284Yeah, but I'd rather not have to drag a rusting multi-ton vehicle out of the mud and muck at the bottom of a lake using rope and girlpower.So let's go find a crane
>>27866276>I always enjoy learning random little tidbits of useless information.We all do. Besides, maybe you'll steal a ship from Germany one day. Would be embarrassing not to know your shit then.>>27866284>The boat probably has cranes,It should but how functional they are is a different pair of shoes.
>>27866170> “Where’s Lisa?”> “What do you think about the new crew?”then>Otherlooks like we're going to need a big crane and diving gear. i guess we need to call up the senior president. they problably have all the best gear.
>>27866329>i guess we need to call up the senior president. they probably have all the best gear.Steal it in response to her stealing our money. The Stasi can grease the tank when we get it out.
>>27866235> “Where’s Lisa?”“So where’s everyone’s favorite jew?”Ramirez shrugs. “If I knew, I’d tell you. Apparently she was in talks with Principal Tennyson last night, said she wanted to bring something that might help.”Your stomach growls before you can continue.Ramirez nods over to a nearby picnic table. “Food’s over there. It’s pancakes.”How the fuck did Nancy make pancakes all the way outside? Whatever, time for pancakes. You quickly take up a hot plate and begin chowing down. In the middle of your feast, you think to get Nancy.“Nancy!” you say, with spittles of syrup and pancake coming out, “did you see what tank it was?”Nancy stops her meet and greet and says, “I only saw a bit of it, and I don’t know anything about tanks.”That figures. But as soon as you go back to your pancakes, the ground starts rumbling. You quickly turn to see what it is.“What the hell…” You say.It was Lisa poking her head out of an Armored Recovery Vehicle.The ARV stops just short of the lake. She now has everyone’s attention. She looks pretty proud of herself as she climbs out of the hatch. Up until she trips and falls to the ground. She quickly gets up, no worse for wear.Man, things are escalating quickly.> “Where did you get that?”> Greet Lisa> Other
>>27866417>Greet LisaHEIL LISA!
>>27866417> Greet LisaTreat it like a normal occurrence.
>>27866417>Greet LisaBest not to seem too impressed, we run this shit.
>>27866437Dude, she's Jewish.
>>27866417Fucking magical space jew showing us up.> OtherInvite her to eat.>>27866485>>27866474>jokemind
>>27866417>Greet LisaHey Lisa! Nice find!side note, better avoid the "where's everyone's favorite jew" comments. Doesn't sound very presidential.
>>27866490>space jewBut she's not a Ferengi...
>>27866494>side note, better avoid the "where's everyone's favorite jew" comments. Doesn't sound very presidential.As I said upthread we seem like something of a bitch.
>>27866494>side note, better avoid the "where's everyone's favorite jew" comments. Doesn't sound very presidential.Stop being a Jew.>>27866530You and your friends don't joke around about ones backgrounds?
>>27866494I'm with >>27866530 and >>27866549 , quit being a whiny jew faggot.Nobody likes a bitch.
>>27866530We're not a bitch. We just have low esteem for other people.
>>27866549We do. However, we (/tg/ / gertrude) don't know our cabinet super well yet, and it might be a good idea to make sure we're on good terms with them. Not being a bitch, being a politician.
>>27866590Go home, JIDF. You wouldn't be complaining if we made Mexican jokes about Ramirez.
>>27866437> Greet LisaYou walk up to her and say, “Hey, Lisa.”Lisa, looking still incredibly proud of herself, says, “Well howdy, Boss. You’re looking just dandy today!”Time to confront the elephant in the room. “So what the fuck is that thing?”“Principal Tennyson tells me it’s a Bergepanzer III, some kind of German recovery vehicle. Naval studies has been using it transport cargo along with the Dragon Wagon which should be coming up soon along with a crane. Really though I got a lot to tell you.”You invite her over to the table. Everyone else is ogling the Bergepanzer, apparently never having seen something so big up close. “Shoot.”“Okay, first things first, budget. Tennyson is giving us 20,000 dollars to help start the Tankery team.”> + 20,000 DOLLARSYou nearly choke on your pancakes. 20,000 Dollars.“Secondly, Tennyson’s registering us in the World Tournament, that’s coming up in October. Since we’re now technically a sports team, that means we can use the school sports field anytime we want.“Thirdly, I went on the internet and found a site that sells tanks for cheap. I’ve narrowed down a couple of possibilities. Just tell me when and I’ll send you a link with the tanks.”You nod. That’s a lot to swallow.So what now?> Dig the tank out of the lake.> Get everyone organized. You have two crews now along with something that was technically a tank.> Buy a new tank off Tankslist> Other
>>27866590Oy vey, he mentioned the word jew, it's like another Shoah.
>>27866628Organisation. Get a team to work on the tank and delegate someone who knows their shit to teach the newbies some basics.
>>27866619Yes, I would. I'm not complaining, I'm not offended. Just making a note that it isn't going to make us any friends, which we'll need to pull this shit off.
>>27866590>Not being a bitch, being a politician.I see no differences.>>27866628> Dig the tank out of the lake.Work time, also lock down that money.
>>27866628>Dig the tank out of the lake.Blood for the blood god!
>>27866628Dig out the tank and recruit some crew members. Buy tanks to suit each crew.
>>27866628>Get everyone organized. You have two crews now along with something that was technically a tank.One team can dig the tank out of the lake, the other can go searching. If they find one, they can mark it's location down for the recovery team.
>>27866628>> Dig the tank out of the lake.
>>27866628Can we get that twenty grand in cash and wave it under Senior Pres' nose?
>>27866703No. But we can roll a shiny new tank up to her room at 0237 and fire off a blank shell.
>>27866664> Dig the tank out of the lake.“Welp, let’s get to work.” You walk up to the group. They all look at you expectantly. “Girls, we got our work cut out for us today. We got five tanks to recover now. One of which is in the lake, the other four are somewhere around the entire ship’s surface. Lisa, you did a good job driving here, you handle that. Nancy, I want you to handle controls for the winch. Ramirez, take your clothes off, you’re going diving.”Ramirez nods and immediately starts stripping to her underwear.You look over at Kitten. “Kitten, you actually know something about tanks. So you’re gonna take the freshmen and start scouting.”Kitten looks over at the freshmen, who look very unimpressed at Kitten. She then looks back to you nervously. “Are you sure?”“Positive.” You hand her a map of the ship. “Just mark down nearby landmarks if you can’t make out exact location. We’ll figure out the rest. Any questions?”“… yeah… can I have a job that doesn’t involve people?” Kitten asks.> Yeah (Specify what job.)> Nah
>>27866805>> NahTanks don't get run by one person!
>>27866805>Nah"This'll be a good experience, Kitty Kat."
>>27866816> Nah“Kitten, this’ll be a lovely experience. Maybe you’ll make some friends!”Kitten crosses her arms, puffing airs. “… I have you don’t I? Isn’t that enough?”Aw, she’s making you blush. “Oh stop it.” You ruffle her hair. “Look, they’ll clamor to you for information on a tank. They’re already your underclassmen. I’m sure you can do it.”“But-““Do it for me?” you ask. Kitten looks conflicted, and then is finally defeated.“Okay,” she says softly. You pat her on the shoulder then send her away. The six of them call a taxi and soon enough, they’re away to find new tanks. Now you had to recover this one. Ramirez was already in the drink. You climb up into the superstructure of the Panzer III next to Nancy.“Hey, President,” she says. You look over. She looks very uncharacteristically worried. “When we get all the tanks, do you really think we have a shot at winning the tournament?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>27866805>YeahYou can get naked and wet with Ramirez.
>>27866977>> PoliteNo clue yet. Let's see what we get.
>>27866977>NeutralShe's part of our staff so let's be honest about this, we have no clue.
>>27866996> Polite“Of course, Nancy. Anybody can win anything as long as they put their minds to it. You scared?”“A bit. I mean, I know nothing about tanks. I’m not sure you know anything about tanks. All the other schools…” She sighs, but then breaks into a smile. “But you’re right. We might have a shot.”Ramirez surfaces, giving a thumbs up. Nancy begins pulling, along with Lisa driving backwards very slowly. Slowly but surely, you can begin to make out a shape in the water, rising up. It breaks out of the water. Past all the water and brown rust you can make out green. Water seeps out of a couple holes, and as it continues to rise it’s obvious what tank it is.You say, “It’s an M4 Sherman.”In all it’s welded hull, 75mm, gasoline rusted engine glory.> TANK UNLOCKED: M4 SHERMAN (VINTAGE)Ramirez stands by the Bergepanzer III and asks, “You guys got a towel?” Lisa tosses her one out of the hatch.Lisa climbs up to you guys. She looks at her watch and says, “Dragon Wagon should be here soon.”You nod. “Great. We’re making progress.”What do you do now?> Buy a tank off the Internet.> Wait for Kitten to report back.> Converse with your staff.
>>27867178> Wait for Kitten to report back.
>>27867178>Converse with your staff.>squee about tank-->"So....what's a tank on the internet cost anyways?"
>>27867178>Converse with your staffWe shouldn't buy anything until we know more re: our crew and tanks we already own.
>>27867178> Converse with your staff.> Wait for Kitten to report back.
>>27867178>Converse with your staff.
>>27867178> Buy a tank off the Internet.Tankshopping! The best kind of shopping! SQUEEE!
>>27867178>Converse with your staff.Include questions about internet tank prices, along with parts and ammunition costs.
>>27867248We don't know what repairs we need to do with any of the tanks yet, save the cash till then
>>27867248Let's wait before we just buy the cheapest tank we canWe have to think long-termLET'S SAVE UP AND BUY A MAUS
>>27867264>>27867268Our starting tanks are going to be shit. I'd rather see if we can't get something better.Looking doesn't cost anything either.
>>27867268Entirely too situation related of a tank. Maybe a closed top Hellkitty or something.
>>27867268Mouse a shit. Can't we get some Cold War surplus?
>>27867268That would be retarded.Real talk here, the Maus is kind of a joke. Too slow, too big, and there were only one and a half ever built.
>>27867290Repairs and upgrades are better value than buying wholesale.
>>27867290>Looking doesn't cost anything either.And neither do looks!If we pimp the tanks we have right the fuck up, and parade them around town we'll probably raise awareness, which means members, support, which could mean donations, and it'd be pimpin'
>>27867327We should probably see if we can trade up the Sherman for a Firefly.
>>27867327Not if the tanks to be repaired are shit, which they will be.
>>27867315M18's a tank destroyer, not a tank. 30~mm armor at peak thickness is not a great idea.Great at its job, though.
>>27867321>>27867326I was joking, a heavy tank is toast without support, and the same goes doubly for a super-heavy oneAnd tanks made after WW2 are banned, didn't you watch the OVAs?
>>27867354Open-topped tanks are banned tooDidn't anyone watch the Korean animation?
>>27867354Tank destroyers are perfectly within the rules.
>>27867354That's why you have to avoid getting spotted in one. Sure, it'll lose in a slugging match, but it shouldn't be getting into a slugging match. It should be skulking around and fucking shit up with it's gun.
>>27867363No. T-44s and T-54s are probably our best bet for a medium tank wolf pack style.Incidentally, those things are cheap as fuck since they're 40 year old hand me downs through god knows how many successor states during the Cold War/now.
>>27867413>those things are cheap as fuck since they're 40 year old hand me downs through god knows how many successor states during the Cold War/now.In real life. But in a world where tanking is a competitive sport, you can bet those things aren't anywhere near as common.
>>27867350The Sherman, if we can get it to later versions with the 76mm and wet storage is a perfectly fine medium. The Firefly is very distinctive and will get targeted, along with some issues it had after to much firing.
>>27867213> Converse with your staff.> Wait for Kitten to report back.“Great job, crew.” Everyone looks sufficiently happy, now that progress has been made.“So, Boss,” Lisa asks, “you actually know what tank that is?”“Of course! It’s an M4 Sherman. You never watched war movie before? These things take the piss out of German tanks. You know, Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, Kelly’s Heroes.”Lisa and Nancy glance at each other, then back at you. Yeah, they got no idea what you’re talking about.TIME TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT. “Eh… anyway… Lisa, what’s the price on those tanks on the internet?”Lisa smiles. “I narrowed down five good looking tanks for under 20,000 and as low as 100 dollars. Admittedly, I really chose based on looks, but I’m sure they’re fine. They also got conversion kits and stuff like that too. We can also visit Mr. Mishka at his Tank Shop for that stuff too.”“Great.” At this point, Ramirez climbs in, now fully clothed. “So how are the tanks going to be fixed?” you ask.Lisa looks over at the Dragon Wagon now coming into the park. “Naval Studies Engineering Students. Tennyson says they’re going to be drafted as our maintenance crew. They’ll be repairing our tanks for free in exchange for extra credit.”You nod, satisfied. “You’re really on top of things, Lisa.”Lisa nods. “Of course, my parents are bankers, I always have to be on top with things involving money.”…Lisa sighs. “Yes, I’m aware of how stereotypical that sounds. Let’s not bring it up again, okay?”Your cellphone rings. It’s Kitten.> Answer> Don’t answer.
Will this thread be running for enoguh time after now that it's worthwhile for me to go get some chips, or is it not worth it?
>>27867438Let's just buy a gorrilion tankettes
>>27867460I'm running 'til 10 EST. So yeah, go grab some chips.

>>27867478>>27867478Holy shit. At this rate and two more threads and you'll beat BJ for plot development.
>>27867478Cool beans. 4 and a half hours is definetatly long enough to justify a snack break.
>>27867488It's probably only $100 because it IS scrap already.
>>27867447We don't HAVE later version, though. We don't even have an A1. We have a vanilla M4.>>27867454>Answer>>27867467Because that worked out so well for Anzio.>>27867506That really doesn't take much.
>>27867467I don't think there's enough students on the ship to do that.
>>27867497What? Late model Shermans were tackling P4s with aplomb.mostly because we outnumbered them. Heavily.They could tackle Panthers as well, but with heavier losses.I don't know if there's any historical evidence of Shermans gangbanging a Tiger.
>>27867488>mfw it's a Mark I
>>27867533Finally a challenge worthy of the Engineering students' skills!
>>27867533We have unlimited free labour (effectively) if all it is is parts, it'll be undervauled because of the man-hours needed to salvage it, which aren't a problem for us.>>27867553We could keep it for nostalgia, overhaul it as an antique and flog it, or we could keep it as a punishment tank for people turning up to practise hungover.
>>27867477> Answer“Kitten, you find something?”“Yeah, it’s in the fields. I’ll send you a picture.”You wait a second, then your phone shows an image of a tank with a very tall turret.“Cool!” you say. “What is it?”“It’s a BT-42. Finnish tank. Only a dozen or so built. Big gun. It’s a bit of a retarded KV-2 though.”“… okay.” You know some of those words. Definitely.> Go to Kitten.> Wait for the Sherman to get loaded on the Dragon Wagon.
>>27867540Can still upgrade our rusty Sherman, maybe turn into one of those Israeli Super Shermans if that's within the rules.
Are spigot mortars or rocket racks legal in tankery?
>>27867552>I don't know if there's any historical evidence of Shermans gangbanging a Tiger.Later models did so a couple times, but it was always hairy.And yeah, they can bend PzKpfW IVs over the table, but judging by Black Forest peak's loadout, we're likely to run up against a lot of the stuff the Germans were never able to produce in sufficient quantities to turn the tide of the war.
>>27867595Load the Sherman, it saves time later on.Meanwhile: $100 tank.
>>27867595>> Go to Kitten.
>>27867595> Go to Kitten.
>>27867595> Wait for the Sherman to get loaded on the Dragon Wagon."We'll send someone to pick it up. Keep up the good work."
>>27867595>Wait for the Sherman to get loaded on the Dragon Wagon.

>>27867575>We have unlimited free labour (effectively) if all it is is parts, it'll be undervauled because of the man-hours needed to salvage it, which aren't a problem for us.Having willing serfs sure is great!
>>27867552We don't have a late model though. We have an early model. You know. The tinderbox.>>27867595Well, shit. Is artillery even allowed?
>>27867650Maybe we should put together labour crews to start mining up metals and build a foundry so we can manufacture our own tanks.
>>27867595>Wait for the Sherman to get loaded on the Dragon Wagon.>>27867596>maybe turn into one of those Israeli Super Shermans if that's within the rules.Sadly, the Super Sherman is probably against the rules. Even though I would support htis course of action if we could. Make Lisa the Commander of it.>>27867610Rocket racks would be completely pointless. We had enough of this argument in the OTHER GuP quest, go there if you want the reasons.>>27867575Good point. We should at least see what model it is. Could be a hidden gem.
>>27867660I think the point is we can likely upgrade it to a late model with enough effort.
>>27867660Well maybe assault guns, but dedicated arty like M41s are probably a no-no for safety concerns (crew exposed).
>>27867660It's a assault gun, not arty.
>>27867669>Maybe we should put together labour crews to start mining up metals and build a foundry so we can manufacture our own tanks.So in consideration of >>27867363>And tanks made after WW2 are banned, didn't you watch the OVAs?we could become the primary supplier for grade-A replicas.More like Girls and Hochofen Quest, right?
>>27867669We're on a ship. Where are we going to mine anything?
>>27867702It's not. The one time they were used as such they lost 95% of all the existing vehicles. Afterwards they phased all the BTs out.
>>27867669We're on a fucking boat. At Sea.

>>27867737>>27867710Best quest ever.
>>27867757And once again the idiots come out of the woodwork. It's indirect short-range artillery. Their commander used it as such and was widely successful. Then he got attached to infantry and their commander saw armour in their name and went full retard, using them as assault guns.
>>27867815And once again it's classified as a assault gun, doesn't matter how effective or how they used it, it's a Assault gun.
>>27867620> Go to the Kitten“Alright, Kitten, you stay there. We’ll come to you.”“Righto, I’ll send you our GPS coordinates. It looks like it’s stuck in the ground anyway.”Ah, the GPS coordinates app for the iPhone, always good to have it.“Lisa, bring us over to these coordinates.”Lisa quickly goes down into the tank, “Yeah, Boss!”One thing you had to note. The Bergepanzer III on the move was loud as fuck. Thankfully you were quite used to loud noises thanks to having a little sister raised in the 00s with iPhones, stereos, and video games.You let the chilled wind breeze through your hair as the Bergepanzer III moves down the roads of the Academyship. Onlookers gawk not at the schoolgirls, but at the ARV.An old lady waves out her window. “Very nice! A Bergepanzer III! If I were you, I’d convert it into a StuG III soon as possible!”You wave back. “Okay!”You start getting out of town and move into the farms where food is grown. Soon enough, by the side of the road, you can see Kitten waving to you. She flags the Bergepanzer III down into the field and towards the BT-42.You shout over the side. “Hey, Kitten! Is the BT-42 a good tank?”Kitten shouts back. “No!”Well, at least she was honest.> Have Kitten continue to find more tanks.> Talk with Kitten.> Other.
>>27867855Just because it is "classified" as an assault gun, that doesn't make it one.
>>27867595Quick question, is it an original m4 sherman or is it one of the variants like the a1 or a2?
>>27867860>Have Kitten continue to find more tanks.>Talk with Kitten.
>>27867860> Have Kitten continue to find more tanks. With us.I like Kitten already.
>>27867905A vanilla Sherman. Pure M4

>>27867860> Talk with Kitten.>An old lady waves out her window. “Very nice! A Bergepanzer III! If I were you, I’d convert it into a StuG III soon as possible!”Stug life.>>27867890The rules don't care. To the rules it's an assault gun.
>>27867921>A vanilla Sherman??
>>27867860At least we have indirect-fire support now.Let's call down fire from the skies and blow their tracks off.
>>27867951The rules don't give a fuck about which kind of vehicle you field.
>>27867951>SenshadoYou don't happen to know which sub group translated it as Panzerfahren, would you?
>>27867860>iPhone,iPhone navi is shit though. And I don't say that because of any Apple hate, it's just legitimately terrible.
>>27868017>You don't happen to know which sub group translated it as Panzerfahren, would you?Commie did.>>27867737> my homework fell into the flames
>>27868017Commie I think.

>>27868082I think it's more that the ship itself is moving, meaning that the coordinates we would need are constantly moving as well.
>>27868096As a side note, that's around the size of Ooarai. Which is one of the SMALLER ships.
>>27868056>>27868058>>27868104> watching Commie

>>27867913> Have Kitten continue to find more tanks.> Talk with KittenAs the Bergepanzer III began wresting the BT-42 free of the ground, you decide a conversation with Kitten is in order.“So Kitten, how are the freshmen treating you?”She says, “Oh, they’re just fine and dandy. Talking about stuff that I really couldn’t give two shits about like the latest talk on Ryan Gosling or the Kardashians and stuff like that. Girl stuff to be specific.”You snicker. “Now Kitten, ain’t anything wrong with being a girl. There’s just different ways of being girls.”Kitten nods. “That’s deep.”“Not really.” Her eyes widen, she realizes something. “What tank did you guys dig up?”“An M4 Sherman.”“Ah, like an A1? Or an E8?”“… noooo?”Kitten nods, understanding. “I see. I suppose there’s room for improvement.”The BT-42 is free, and it’s now easy to see why it refuses to move. It’s missing a track.“Anyway, Kitten. Go ahead and keep looking. We’ll stay here and wait for the Navy kids.”Kitten nods. She and the freshmen leave the scene for their taxi. Probably would be cheaper to just buy a car or something.> Wait for the Dragon Wagon.> Talk with staff member. (Specify which.)> Other

>>27868187>just buy a car or somethingWillys MB/Ford GPW time?>OtherBrowse Tonkslist, get an idea of what's available.
By the by: Let's give the BT-42 to Kitten. It's a "tank" that can be manned by two people and she won't have to do much in it either.Drive up to LOS cover. Fire over it. Repeat.Perfect for a social recluse.
>>27868187>Probably would be cheaper to just buy a car or something.The 100$ tank comes to mind..
>>27868348Probably be better to just sell it on Tankslist and use the money to get a non-shit tank.
>>27868366Yeah, I think you're right with that.We have nothing invested in it. Let's just get it repaired and painted (for free!) and put it up on the netternets and sell it off.If we want to stick with the assault gun we can look into buying one.
>>27868245> Other“Lisa. Show me them tanks you browsed up.”“Sure thing, Boss.”Lisa pulls out her laptop and quickly comes up to Tankslist. On her “Wish list” are five tanks.(Pics are related. What you see is what you get.)
>>27868406Why buy one when we can just turn the Bergepanzer III into a StuG?
>>27868426SU-122 (12,000 Dollars)Reliable. 122mm Heavy gun. Versatile. Competition spec.
>>27868444Because it's nice having a logistics vehicle.

>>27868450But what do we need it for once we recovered all of the tank on the ship?It's dead weight during the actual fights, and destroyed tanks are moved by the referees or whoever
>>27868464>Excellent British cruiser tank designHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valiant_tank
>>27868464No. Not only no but fuck no and burn it with fire.

The first day gave minor problems and was abandoned after only 13 miles (21 km) of easy on-road driving. However, the driver was already exhausted by this time, finding that the steering levers needed his full weight to operate and that the seat, footbrake and gearlever all carried risk of physical injury in using them. The Officer in Charge decided to abandon the trials there and then as it was impossible and unsafe to continue, reporting that "in his view the entire project should be closed" There were also issues with weight distribution and the ground clearance of only 9 inches, and by that point of the war there was no longer a need for the tank. The Valiant project was terminated.>steering levers needed his full weight to operate and that the seat, footbrake and gearlever all carried risk of physical injury in using them>steering levers required the full weight of a grown man to operate>seat, footbrake and gearlever all carried risk of physical injury in using them>THE FUCKING SEAT carried risk of physical injury in using>>27868735>It's an example of abject failure.

Yeah lets have kitten take a closer look at the tiger
> Undecided (Leaning on SU-122, A38 Valiant, and Tiger I)“Hm… the SU-122 looks cool. And a tank for a 100 dollars? Wow. And a Tiger for that price.”“Undecided, Boss?”“A bit.”Lisa nods. “You can decide on it later.”You nod. “What do you suggest?”She shrugs. “The fuck am I supposed to know about tanks. I’m a treasurer, not a tanker.”She is right about that. Might be a good idea to ask Kitten later.In the time you spent trying to decide, the Dragon Wagon has arrived and already loaded the BT-42 up. Kitten is calling again.“What’s up, Kitten?” you say.“Churchill Mark I, over in the Marshall Ney Forest.”> Go now.> Wait for a bit.> Other.
>>27868848>> Go now.Damn do we have mediocre to fuck tanks.
>>27868848> Go now.I do hope we will get a stuart
>>27868848> Go now.The good tanks are below deck.
New thread time, it seems.
> Go now.Welp. Time to go.“Say, Kitten,” you continue over the phone. “Is the Churchill a good tank?”“Anything other than the Mark I, yeah.”There’s that honesty again.The Bergepanzer III leads the Dragon Wagon on. Kitten again, flags you down off the road and into Marshall Ney Forest. Lots of trees but Kitten keeps you going on paths wide enough for the Bergepanzer III and the Dragon Wagon to fit.Soon enough, you find the Churchill stuck in a ditch rearend first. A tree has also fallen on top of it.“Yeah.” Ramirez starts, “That’s gonna take a while to remove.”What do you do now?> Talk with Kitten> Talk with staff> Talk with freshmen> Talk with Naval Studies Engineering students> Other
>>27868968We just entered autosage. We've got a couple hours before we're in danger of dropping off the board.>>27868972>Talk with KittenAsk her for everything she knows on the five tanks from Tankslist.
>>27868972>> Talk with KittenAsk her to check out our possible tanks.
>>27868884Well, it was mentioned we lost a "Super Heavy"Tanks that fit this category could range all the way from the T-35 and the Char 2C to the unfinished chassis of the E-100.
>>27868972> Talk with Kitten"Can we upgrade the Churchill to a version that's better?"

> Talk with KittenYou proceed to talk to Kitten about the tanks you were mulling over on Tankslist.“AHAHAHAHA!” she laughs harder than anytime she ever had. All you did was mention buying the A38 Valiant. “Ahaha… oooh. That’s a good joke, Trudy. Really is.”“… I was being serious.”Kitten looks surprised. “Were you? Oh shit. Well, let’s just say the Valiant is not a good tank and leave it at that. Don’t buy it. Now a Tiger for under 20,000, that’s a real steal. I’d get that. We can convert it to Competition spec later.”“I’ve been meaning to ask, what’s with vintage and competition spec stuff?”Kitten clears her throat. Looks like it’s nerdout time.“Vintage tanks are very old tanks that haven’t seen too much restoration work. They’re pretty much worse than how they would’ve performed in their age because of aging, not to mention rust and stuff. Very prone to catastrophic breakdowns. You can use them, but it’s not exactly suggested you do.”“Competition spec tanks are tanks that are either restored to full working order. Costs a good amount of money to restore vintage tanks to this state but it’ll be worth it. They’ll perform as well, if not better than their historical stats would suggest, and will not have catastrophic breakdowns. Losing a track or a stalled engine though isn’t out of the question.”“Finally, you have Elite tanks. Best of the bunch. No breakdowns.

You introduce yourself, and she politely gives you her name.“Name’s Dory. Dory Miller. And extra credit for just lugging a bunch of tanks around and then fixing them up? That’s better than eight hour shifts.”“Of course.”“Still, kinda strange you’re just digging up old tanks. Why are you even doing this? You gonna sell ‘em off or something like that?”“Well…”> RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITY> Y/N
>>27869329Nah, no poorfags on our team
>>27869321I know that, I was just pointing out that it'd be classified as a Superheavy Self Propelled Artillery Piece, Assault Gun, or Tank Destroyer, rather than a Superheavy Tank.

>>27869329>Yay.But don't tell her the ship might be a goner.
>>27869329Yes. More people to man the tanks is always a plus.

> Y“We’re actually gonna use the tanks in a big tournament coming up. Actually, we could always use more hands to man the tanks. You think you can do it?”Dory bites her lip. Oh boy.“Eh… Well, we Naval Studies students have to do a lot. I mean, work the ship, not to mention us working on your tanks. Classes on top of that. I don’t think we have time.”“Ah.

Cathy greets with a smile. “You girls having fun?”“Yep. Nice to travel around the Academyship. Get to see it all,” says Cathy.“The tanks are pretty shit though.” Andrea says.“Well, thanks to our friends in Naval Studies, they’ll be right as rain.” You decide to ask a good question. “So how’s my best good friend Kitten been treating you guys?”They all look at each other, then back at you, as if they don’t want to say anything.“Uh…” Ashleigh starts. “She’s unique?”Faint praise.Tara scratches the back of her head. “She knows a lot about tanks.”You sigh, “Nothing good huh?”Cathy says, “Well, Prez. Kitten’s kind of quiet around us. Plus she kinda acts weird sometimes. You should get her checked out or something.”“I’ll keep it mind.”Tabitha sighs. “I just hope we get into driving tanks soon.

If a crew’s morale is low enough, they will not perform adequately on the field. At worse, they’ll desert the team.“But anyway, I hope you girls are having a fun time.

Soon enough, back onto the road.“Say,” Nancy speaks up, “how did you girls find those tanks anyway?”Cathy smiles, nudging Tabitha. “Tabitha here has an excellent sense of smell. She can smell rust and grease a mile away.”Tabitha shrugs. “My parents work in perfume, it’s a requirement.”Cool beans. You say, “Get up here then, we’re gonna need that nose if we’re gonna find those tanks.”Tabitha brushes some hair out of her face and climbs up to the front of the superstructure. Even though the Bergepanzer III is going at brisk pace, you can tell she must’ve smelt something. She takes another quick scent.“Lisa, get ready to go where she points,” you say.Tabitha suddenly points left. “THERE!”The Bergepanzer is rocked as it drives left, shaking everyone inside.“GENTLY, LISA!” you shout.“Sorry!” she shouts back.Soon enough, with Lisa’s driving and Tabitha’s sense of smell. You end up back in the fields. This time, curiously, having found two tanks. One apparently capsized on the other.“What are they?

>>27870128Sherman or StuartStuart because I like the Stuart or the M24Sherman possiblities for upgrades
>>27870068> M4 SHERMANI think this one's going to be the most flexible. Fast and decently armored, which is ideal for a command tank. Plus there's a buttload of variants we can upgrade it into.
>>27870128> ShermanHopefully we can upgrade it to a Jumbo in the future.
>>27870239E8 is an entirely different tank
>>27870128Who is in our crew? Are the cabinet members + kitten all going to be one tank, or will they each command one? We've got 5 tanks, so that's an option.

She’s a real sweetie, makes the best kinds of food that I only can hope to emulate.”“My real name is actually Carol. Trudy just calls me Kitten because of a very longwinded incident involving cats at the animal shelter back in D.C. She still won’t let me live it down.”“My parents happened to be watching The Simpsons at the time.”“Well, I was named Gertrude because… I’m not entirely sure.”Everyone, including you, looked at Ramirez. The only one with no apparent given name. Even your cellphone lists her simply as Ramirez. Ramirez looked up from her meal of fries and a shake and simply said, “Uh… So I think George Clooney was pretty attractive in O’ Brother Where Art Thou.”Lisa asked, “What’s your actual name?”You nod. “Yeah, you never tell anyone what your first name actually is.”Ramirez blushes, scooting herself into a corner. “Eh… it’s… pretty embarrassing.”Kitten says, “Can’t be as embarrassing as the guy who has the longest name in the world. What is it?”Ramirez sighs. “… It’s…” she barely mumbles out something.Lisa snickers. “What?”“..emum…”Lisa leans in, hand near ear, “What’s that?”“CHRYSANTHEMUM!”The table is silent.> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>27871146To be fair, the 34/85 IS one of the most produced tanks of the war.

You decide to say your farewells to the Freshmen and the Naval Studies Engineering.Dory approaches you before she leaves and says, “We’ll consider the offer. Personally, I think tanks are a real treat. Maybe if I get time freed up though.”“Thanks.”The five of you all head to the dorm buildings.“You know what would be nice?” Nancy says.“What?” asks Ramirez.“If at some point in the middle of all this mess, we managed to actually make a lot of friends.”Lisa nods. “That would be nice. Would be a change of pace from you idiots.” Everyone giggles. “Seriously, what kind of people are we gonna meet?”Nancy looks over at you, “What do you think?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

'Snot like an old Hellcat would scratch a modern MBT, and besides that I'd imagine that ammo would be a major bitch to find without the right contacts.But theoretically, do you happen to know what kind of paperwork there'd be?

No touching though, I’m sure there’s enough homoeroticism between the both of us.”You roll your eyes. “Yeah, sure.”You open the door and let Kitten in. Before you let yourself in, you take one last look outside. The sun is already setting on the day over Lafayette Girls Academy. You’ve found tanks, recruited a crew, brought your own crew together, and so far it looks things are just simply looking up.Kitten comes back to the door. “You don’t mind if I bring my laptop up here do you?”You shake your head. “Not at all.”Kitten quickly runs downstairs, and a minute later, her laptop plus charger is in her possession as she runs into your room.You smile.

>>27871525Thanks dude. I appreciate a GuP quest that actually has plot movement.
>>27871525>>27871532Same here, this has been a nice little quest so far.
>>27871525Good run Schteel, look forward to your future threads.
>>27871486Also point. But that wasn't really specific, I was just naming one off the top of my head.Are they really that rare? I thought they made several thousand of them. Of course, ze germans also made a couple thousand Tigers and I think the only one running is in Bovington.Also, I found out a couple of months ago that apparently, Haynes makes a service manual for the Tiger. Also, the Spitfire as well. At least, they do if I'm reading their website right.
>>27871525Nice job Schteel. Needs more T95 though.There's never enough T95
