You're awoken by the sound of cannonfire. You eyes snap open, but it's still too dark to see anything. Cannonfire erupts again before you feel around for your phone and turn off your alarm- it's 5:35AM and the supply ship you've snuck aboard should be due to arrive on Saunders' schoolcarrier within an hour.You are Yukari Akiyama, secret agent, and loader for Oorai's Panzerkampfwagen Mk. IV and you are on a dangerous mission to gather intelligence on Saunders' tank line-up. If successful you will return to your team with critical information that could mean the difference between victory and defeat in the coming tournement. If you are caught you will probably be tried and executed as a spy.Okay, probably not executed as a spy, but it'll definately be embarassing and they'll probably tell your parents. You straighten your clothes and pack the wool blanket you'd kept warm with away in your bag before opening up a breakfast MRE- cheese and vegetable omelette with hashbrowns and bacon. You eat quickly and wash it down with the last of your water ration. You carefully clean up after yourself after breakfast, collecting your litter and sealing it in a small plastic bag- no reason to let anyone know you'd been here.>Disguise up and find a way off this boat.>Stay put and they'll get you off this boat themselves.>Make a phone call.

You stretch out a bit as you set your camera up facing you, turning on your light a bit. "Good morning! Special Agent Yukari reporting one last time before I breech the enemy's defenses!" You smile broadly. "So far, I have remained undetected and, with the help of this genius disguise-" You hold up the uniform for the camera. "I'll be able to penetrate their defenses and learn everything we'll need to know to crush them!"You start changing into the uniform, ready to get out onto the supply ship and get ready to board Saunders' carrier- then you realise the camera's still rolling and, with a start and a slight blush, you reach down and turn it off. It takes you only a few minutes to properly change and you make sure the spy camera that you brought is secured in the front pocket so it'll see what you see.It's already daylight by the time you manage to get out onto the ship's deck, the ocean air crisp and chilly against your exposes arms- this is not short-sleave weather and it definately feels like an early fall. As you wander about the deck towards the passenger quarters, nobody really seems to notice you- you've already seen a few other passengers, and two of those were dressed similarly to you.>Find someone to talk to- get some early intelligence.>Call home- people might be worried since you're not showing up for practice!>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.
Alright guys, looks like it'll be a slow day today.Alright, so I was in the place where all great ideas are formed (the shower), and something ocurred to me. It needs the approval and cooperation of anon and Blackjack, and I'm not entirely sure whether it will work, but damn if I don't at least say it.I could run Sheilas and Sentinels as a quest.I'll give everyone a little time to think about that.so, the cons, the way I see it. I haven't run a quest before, apart from a little thing on another forum. Blackjack and I will have to coordinate, though I'm pretty sure I can run quests at the same time he does, maybe a bit later.And the biggest concern, how much do we want the sidequest to affect the main storyline? If we follow show canon, Koala school loses to Pravda in the quarter finals. If I put them in a different drawing, they'll lose to Kuroromine. And even if you guys for whatever reason want to and beat either of those two, we still wouldn't win against Oorai because things.So the Koalas are unfortunately doomed by canon. I'd still like to run a quest out of them, though; I reckon it'd be fun.Oh, and then there's the question of "do we want to shit up /tg/ with more gup quests?"Anyway, if it's not going to work out, I'll just continue the story as-is.and now nerves as I either receive praise, indifference or I get torn apart by the wolves.
>>27907179>[x] Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.At least get to the school before raising alertness levels.
>>27907179>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.
>>27907179>>Call home- people might be worried since you're not showing up for practice!Best not have folks freaking out.
>>27907179>>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.Stealth mission, snake, and you forgot your guns at home.
Rolled 97, 7, 56, 36, 57 = 253>>27907219It sounds fun, and I rather just see our american girls beat and blow shit up
>>27907219Man, I made a bigger post than Blackjack did right after Blackjack did. Sorry!>>27907179>Keep to yourself let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.Also let's see if we can find out when and where they're having the Senshado meeting.
>>27907179>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.Can't jeopardize the mission until we get that intel!
>>27907179>Keep to yourself
>>27907179>>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.
>>27907219Keep it as writefaggotry. It's good, but 3 GUP quests would be stretching it.
>>27907219Is there a particular place in the timeline that Sheilas and Sentinels must occur in? You could put them into a qualifier tournament against some minor unnamed schools. They'll still lose in the big leagues of course but at least there will be more action that way.This means a lot more work for you though. You'll have to come up with new schools, names, tanks they use, etc. etc. I have no strong feelings either way but if you want to do a quest then by all means, please do so.
>>27907699I don't mind the extra work. Half the schools that the Koalas would've gone up against weren't in the show anyway, and have only been mentioned by name, so I'd have to have made up their entire line-up anyway. It does help to have some knowledge of tanks and tanks strategy.The timeline I was looking at if this stayed as writefaggotry (and spoilers by the way if you actually want this to be a surprise) would be beat the Swedish school, get beat by Pravda, stick around and watch the rest of the competition. And of course, we'd see/hear about the main GuPQ people.Also, in the last part I wrote that the Koala's had heard about Gloriana bringing in foreign talent, and thought "what a great idea!" and decided to bring in three more tanks. I'll have to retcon that part if we play the qualifiers. Not that I'd mind, though.
>>27907179>Keep to yourself- let's not run the risk of blowing our cover.Let's stick with the skill Yukari has max ranks in.

As the sun rises over the University Warship Saunders, you notice more and more activity on the deck of the small supply freighter- people are getting up and getting ready to disembark onto the ship- students, parents, staff all buzzing about after the overnight boat trip. It reminds you of the day you met Russells and Miho. They make such an awesome couple, you think with a smile, even if they aren't terribly good at keeping it a secret.You blend in with the crowd, being careful not to stick out or do anything anyone would remember. You keep a nice, low profile- something you were better at doing that you're probably comfortable with. Eventually the supply ship docks alongside the enormous (Even by schoolship standards!) Saunders and everyone is given the all-clear to board.You go with the crowd, eventually finding your way up to the deck and you look out on the City of Saunders, which was amazingly American, right down to the English-language signs and archetecture.>Head straight for Saunders University.>Let's look around the city first, see if there's anything useful.>Other.
>>27908485>Head straight for Saunders>See if you can find the garage first
>>27908485>Let's look around the city first, see if there's anything useful.We do still need a uniform for Saunders. Besides now that we're in an American wonderland we should pick up a souvenir for Miho and Russels.If you put it over the barrel of the guns it'll keep dirt and water from getting in!
>>27908485>Head straight for Saunders University.

>>27908138>ContinuanceSo it's just a lot of StuG IIIs and stolen BT and KV series tanks?
>>27908664My then girlfriend posted it on my facebook with the message 'Back to school shopping'The amusement wore off when it turned out she hadn't bought actually any and I had to go down to CVS and buy more, because the college never stocked magnums.

>>27908485[X]Let's look around the city first, see if there's anything useful.Also, yay, we didn't (at least seriously) break Yukari's heart.
>>27909137I think we did well by making a decision before she started to develop strong feelings./tg/s usual indecision and not making a choice would've ended badly.
>>27909177BlackJack beat it into our heads.Almost literally, lol.
>>27909137>Also, yay, we didn't (at least seriously) break Yukari's heart.Break it? The poor girl has probably already contacted Yamatogawa and commissioned a full length series about Tanks, Miho, and Russels.
>>27909261>YamatogawaGood choice. Though he tends to use the same character designs across series.
>>27909229Had /tg/ tread with utmost delicacy and spoke with complete honesty at the Miho thing, I think it might have been possible to keep the Yukari route open.As it is, however, there is no good way to go back. It shall have to be Miho; there is no other acceptable path remaining.
>>27909261at first i read its as Takosubutya (or something like that). God no.
>>27909287What, you don't like dark skinned girls with blue eyes and silver hair?Though the main problem I foresee is that I don't think he can write more than a chapter of monogamy.
>>27909386Exactly. It goes to threesome with the tank, and the yukari gets an insert.
>>27909376Dear God. Truly we have spurned a yandere.At least he won't touch C3bu, right? inb4 he wrote the first draft
>>27908138These are hilariously stereotypical.Also, they're ordered in the same way that they were for the tournament brackets, so if you know your shit you can work out who beat who through this.Anyone else have input on Sheilas and Sentinels quest?
Every ounce of your being wants to run up and down the streets looking at everything- while you'd always thought German tanks were some of the best, you'd always enjoyed American culture- even when you were young you'd prefered subtitled American war movies even to Japanese cartoons. But you're on a mission, now! Maybe you can come back another time and sight-see but you need to find and infiltrate Saunders University.The town doesn't make it easy- a war museum, the biggest PanzerMart you've ever seen and half a dozen restaurants oozing with the smell of American-style breakfasts. You're almost in tears by the time you get to the University itself- easy to find since it's campus."Hi there!" A voice sounds, as you stare at the M4 monument that stands in front of the school. "Ya look lost! Can I help you find anything?" You turn and see a blond girl in a Saunders uniform waving you over. "Ya, you! C'mon!">Ignore her- keep interactions to a minimum.>Engage- Be likable, but forgettable.>"I'm looking for the Panzer club!"

Also she's delusional not Haruhi.
>>27909773>Sonora sexually abuses herHow's that different from their actual relationship?

You turn and smile at the tall Saunders girl. "Oh! Hi!" You say politely as you walk over towards the girl. If you can just avoid blowing your cover, you might be able to get some information from this girl. "Sorry if I look lost..." you say, looking a bit embarassed."It's fine!" The girl says, putting out her hand. "Name's Kay! And I'm just the sort of girl you needed to find!" She smiles broadly and you shake her hand, but it's a trap! As soon as you're locked in she pulls you into her. "We hug around here, kid!" She says, wrapping you in a bear hug. And then her name registers- this is the captain of their Senshado team! She finally releases you from the hug."So, you're a long way from the convienience store!" She says, guiding you past the M4 statue- you can't help but crane your head to admire it as you go past. "Got the Tank Bug, eh?" Kay remarks.>"Oh yes! I've heard you guys have an amazing team!">"Sorry about the clothes, I haven't gotten my uniform yet...">Other.
>>27910308>"Oh yes! I've heard you guys have an amazing team!"

>>27910874That's the whole plan!

>>27910916Meant more along the lines of her getting stuck on the team.
>>27910982>That's the whole plan
>>27911012Yukari: I never was on your side
"Oh yes!" You say with honest enthusiasm. "I've heard Saunders has an amazing Panzer team!" You say, looking back at Kay. Just like Rusty said- look at the mark, but don't stare. "It'd be really cool to see them. I've loved tanks since I was a kid!"Kay laughs and throws an arm around your shoulder. "We call 'em tanks around here, kid!" She corrects cheerfully- Russells was right! "You want to see 'em? Let's go take a look!" As Kay guides you across the campus, you lose count of the number of girls cheerfully waving and greeting you- Specifically you, they greet Kay as well, but they seem exceptionally friendly to new people. You decide that you really kind of like Saunders- you're still going to do your best to crush them beneith your treads in the coming match, but they're good people, nonetheless.Eventually Kay guides you towards towards a building that easily dwarf's Oorai's tank hanger- ten doors across and a hundred feet deep. You could fit half of Oorai's entire school in here! As Kay guides you through one of the doors you see why they need such a hanger. Tanks- dozens of them. You can't help but run forward, looking around out the seemingly countless American tanks. Neatly parked in rows- ten rows across with four tanks a row. Most of the tanks you see are Shermans, Saunder's signature tank, but you also see a line of Stuart light-tanks, and... Jeez... look at the size of that thing!>"What is that thing?">What kinds of Shermans do you see?>"I didn't know you guys had Stuarts?">Other.
>>27911103>>"I didn't know you guys had Stuarts?"
>>27911044>I was actually a demon.

>>27911103>Other>"That doesn't look like a Sherman!">>27911118>Yukari: I must fight the demons!>Russels: No Yukari, you are the demons>And then Yukari was a zombier
>>27911103>"What is that thing?"So, wild speculation time!
>>27911158Big and squat? T28/95Huge turret? T29, T30, etc.Although considering that Yukari is loving the SPershing, it must be an odd tank for her not to know it.Quick, anyone else know of any large American tanks that are relatively obscure?
>>27911103>>"What is that thing?"What if.... What if it's a doom turtle?
>>27911192Herpta derpta herp derp
>>27911192I'm betting t95. What if it's something like a T57/T69 or something, though?
>>27911103>"We call 'em tanks around here, kid!" She corrects cheerfully- Russells was right!Best Waifu confirmed.
>>27911270Nevermind, the T57 isn't senshado legal
>>27911289Yeah, I was about to ask if it was Senshado legal.
>>27911192M6/T1 heavy are relatively large but might be not large enough to get Yukari worked up...Best bet is T28/T95, unless they got some really obscure prototype.
>>27911103>[x] "What is that thing?">[x] What kinds of Shermans do you see?Ask a question and look with our eyes.
>>27911103>"What is that thing?"It's... it's so big. There's no way it could ever fit inside a tunnel. I've never seen one that size before, I didn't even know they made tanks that big. I can't imagine what its loading is like.
>>27911386was waiting for someone to make a "that's what she said" joke
>>27911103>"What is that thing?"inb4 saunders restored a pershing from grandpa's battalion, one he watched the crew of die
>>27911527...She'd know what a Pershing looks like, methinks.
>>27911586She -did- ID our tank as a Super Pershing just by noticing the length of the gun.What sort of tank does this one have to be in order for Yukari, of all people, not to know what it is?
>>27911527>>27911586Yeah she has a model of a Pershing.;_; i am still sads
>>27911103>"What is that thing?">OtherThe fuck do you have a Panther for?
>>27911586I just want gramps to break down and cry in the middle of saunders' field camp, is that so wrong?
What if it's a tiny tank?
>>27911630Awww it's such a cute little tank. Don't worry it's okay if you have a Christie Suspension or only 2 crew. 37mm is more than enough for any tank.
>>27911697Wh-what's wrong with my Christie suspension?
You run over to the massive panze- you mean tank. It's the biggest tank you've ever seen! Twice as wide as any of the Shermans you can see and twice as long, with a massive gun pointing out the front. It's shape is familiar, but you just can't seem to put a name to it... "Wow! It's huge!" You comment, reaching out to touch it's armored side."That is the Gun Motor Carriage T28 105mm Self Propelled Gun." She says, in an official sounding tone. "Americans designed it to knock out German heavy tanks and fortifications." She says. "We still haven't gotten the darn thing working reliably yet- Thing uses the same engine as the little Shermans so it's stuck going about seven miles per hour- any faster and the engine overheats and seizes..." She sighs. "We were hoping to use it against some of Black Forest and Pravda's heavy tanks this year."As much as you'd love to see the monstrous moving fortress move and shoot, you're relieved that your team won't have to fight against it. You climb up the side- from here you can see the open engine bay and the comically undersized engine. Looking towards the front you can see down behind the massive gun mantlet- easily a quarter of a meter thick. As you stare at the behemoth you remember your mission and realise you've got a beautiful view of the entire hanger from here. As you turn to take it all in, you know that the spy cam in your breast pocket is getting a birds eye view of every Sherman Kay has. You smile- this is going better than you ever expected!

>>27911783ON GUP QUEST
>>27911785>Covers are blown.Oh my.
>>27911768>T28[SCREAMS INTERNALLY, ETERNALLY]
>>27911768They actually got the T28 GMC. Wow.
>>27911768DATAFAGS! ASSEMBLE!Does our HVAP have sufficient penetration to core that thing from the front?
>>27911824maaaybe from point blank, 1sec. Let me google
>>27911697>blatantlies.jpg>>27911735It's shit. I mean the British thought it was a good idea. Even after the Russians decided it was shit.
>>27911824Just track it, light it up and let your team arty do the rest.
>>27911837It's good in specific applications. Just not for general-purpose use-on-errything.
>>27911843>Implying Ooarai has arty>Implying anyone actually uses Arty since that damned patch
>>27911824No, I don't think it does, iirc our gun can do about ~250mm of penetration @ 500yds w/ HVAP and ~200 @ 1k yds, T95/T28 has, according to WOT, 305mm of hull armor at its thickest, so unless we were aiming for weakspots (hatches, etc), nope.
>>27911785Right, so, anywaySheilas and Sentinels Quest, should it be a thing or not?Directed at Blackjack if he's still here and everyone in general.
>>27911873I think two quests is plenty, (GoopQ and LGA Quest), I think yours should remain as a writefaggotry/story instead of a CYOA/Quest
>>27911873Another GuP quest? Insanity, yes--but insanity I perhaps can get behind. That would make what, 3 GuP quests running on this board?
>>27911868Well shit. Something we *can't* violate horribly in a stand-up fight.OTOH it's even slower than us and lacks a turret, so we can outmanouvre it.
>>27911883Yeah, that would make three of them: GuPQ, LGA Quest (which seems promising) and this new one, if it becomes a thing.
>>27911893The Maus could probably outmanouvre it. The problem is that it will probably see- and shoot- us before we see it by a long shot
>>27911893Easilly, I kept one occupied in a Chaffee in WOT until arty/heavies could swat it. Kept tracking it and shit. :D
>>27911893We can scare it into surrender.
>>27911856What, they are extinct on NA? On ASIA they still appear once or twice. We even have an Anniversary Maneuver event for arties. ....and anyone say arty is nerfed to death, they are wrong.
>>27911947>What, they are extinct on NA?Pretty much.
>>27911929>The white flag indicates orgasm
Actually, IIRC we don't have the gun I'm using the figures from for penetration, we have a T15 of some sort, which has somewhat more penetration, depending on ammo used, if we go by World of Tanks' data, using normal AP, we have between 135-225mm of penetration, and with APCR we have 201-335mm. So maybe. I dunno.
>>27911880If it becomes a quest, I'll see if I can chat with Blackjack about what can change in the tourney match ups, and I also might work on the pre-tournament qualifier matches idea that someone proposed earlier.If this doesn't become a thing, well, I'll just stick to as-is canon. I'm not seriously fussed either way, but I really would like to try my hand at a quest sometime. At the same time, I don't want to seriously piss anyone off by making an unwanted spinoff quest on a board that's already pretty divided over quests and junk.I dunno what Blackjack thinks yet, and he's probably got the most say in this, really. Can wait until tomorrow or whenever he posts about it.Or I could figure out how to use the IRC or twitter and ask him myself, but the last time I tried to log into the IRC I fucked up and somehow got myself disconnected and unable to relog, so...
>>27912001So, uh...any other ways we could reliably halt this thing besides tracking it in the middle of the woods or concentrating fire on it?
>>27912044No idea at all. Aim for weak spots I guess? I dunno. Also, according to BJ, we don't have a T15 like I thought, we have a T54. Aaaaaa
>>27912044Hit its tracks, hit the engine.Don't try to go for the front armour. The mantlet is a fucking metre thick. Out manoeuvre it, it's only a fixed gun, plus it's got the same engine as a Sherman, maneuverability is not its game.
>>27911873Leave it as a story. 3 GUP Quests is too many.
>>27909773Gainax, stahp.Gainax, no.Gainax, what are you doing?I mean really? They really did the train thing from Eva? That's just pathetic.
Note to self, don't try to upload A10 gif through quick reply. That was a fucking mess.Deleted post said something along the lines of "Can't decide to run it or not; some anons say yes, some anons say no; will ask Blackjack when I can get in touch with him."
>>27908138>The Polish School has Voytek on their emblemThis pleases me.>>27908782They got T-34-85s by the time of the Lapin Sota. I think they just have national themes rather than a specific time period.I'm assuming that Russels got Yukari Death Traps last thread ironically so they can laugh at how bad it is (it is very bad, at least for comparing Shermans to the axis tanks, since the author's unit wasn't going up against German armour). 5-to-1 ratio my ass. Zaloga is best Sherman guy.
>>27912865I think I'd still like to see a Betushka or two.
btw, Miho's birthday potos.2013-10-23 Celebrate with a tank cake.(may have nfsw ads) http://yaraon.blog109.fc2.com/blog-entry-19453.html http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/10/23/girls-und-panzer-otaku-celebrate-miho-nishizumis-birthday
>>27913673Tank cake... HOOOOOOOOhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clJHNn9erLM
>>27909527>Every ounce of your being wants to run up and down the streets looking at everything- while you'd always thought German tanks were some of the bestYukari is a Wehraboo.ALL IS LOST.(Didn't she state the Sherman was the best tank of WWII in an episode of tank corner?)
I found two gifs, and I thought of this thread.Here's the first one.
>>27914450and the other.
>>27914461I hope we fare better against Pravda.We don't have the Anglerfish dance to fall back on if we lose spirit.
>>27915639We'll just have to make do with making out with Miho instead. Or just do the dance anyway.
>>27914423You could see that from two perspectives. That it was technically the best design or that it was the tank that contributed the most to the country's war effort.It reminds me of a quote from a WWII vet. Something to the effect of "While the Sherman wasn't the best tank of the war, there was always one when you needed one."I can see where he's coming from. I'd rather have one Sherman now than 50 Tigers never.
>>27917363By "contributed most to the war effort" T-34 was the best tank of WWII, Sherman was second.I dislike how people always forget about Russia when World War 2 comes up, they basically won the war.Yes, then came The Cold War and shit, but still.
>>27917441Part of it was that even during the war we were only allies with the Russians because they were the enemy of the enemy. And the immediate aftermath and conflict in how to handle defeated Germany between NATO and the Warsaw Pact basically killed relations, and being the McCarthy era saying anything positive about the USSR was a huge taboo, and so their role was simply ignored for decades.Teaching kids that the people inches away from lobbing nukes at them were heroes who took the hardest part of German conquestwasn't exactly politically acceptable back then.
>>27917554All good points, and I myself have no love for Commies but credit should go where the credit is due.So do they still teach the Cold War version of history or the accurate one now?
>>27917721The cold war version
>>27917721Well, of the two biggest villains of the war, the Germans went completely neurotic about it, and the Japanese pretend it never happened and whip out "but we got nuked" every chance they get to garner sympathy.
>>27917824Germany should just deal with it, yeah it happened, nothing you can do about it now, we as human beings learn from mistakes (our own and other people's), accept that it happened and make sure it never happens again.I really do not like how they say that they were as much the victims of the war as anyone else, Hitler was fucking elected by democratic vote, you chose him to lead you, not the other way around, jeez.Germans were desperate at that point and Hitler was actually the best choice to clean up and fix the country, he was a competent and compelling leader, a shame that he hated other nations so much.
>>27917942Ok, we may be going too /pol/ here, ignore my posts and move on.
>>27917824Sometimes the Japanese government apologizes for it but ruins it by immediately saying "... but it was a fun war, though".
>>27917942Hitler wasn't really a democratic vote. Two other bigwigs thought that they could use him as a puppet because dude had 20 Charisma.Needless to say, they were dead fucking wrong. And he wasn't really very competent.
>>27918699He wasnt a competent general, he sucked at war, with that I agree with.He was a competent politician, got Germany out of the post-war crisis quite nicely and used UK's and France's compliance to get as much stuff as he could before the war, but went more and more retarded and crazy the further they were into the war.
