You know what time it is! VMQ!Archive (1 and 2): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/D9iCKGeSTwitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles or http://valkyria.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyria_WikiYou are LARA WILLIAMS, a Gallian ace fighter pilot for the Demons of Randgriz mercenary company. After graduating from the Sturmfuhrer Academy's flight training school, you've been thrust into the skies over Erusea, where so far you've been making mincemeat everything Erusea could throw at you until you ran into Yellow 13, their top pilot which you had invariably fought to a draw.As a result, you've become rather famous in this hemisphere of the world, though you're not really sure if you deserve the reputation or not, considering you've just happened to be in the right place at the right time, especially where cameras are involved.However, not everything was sunshine and roses. You had recently been brought to near death after "accidentally" getting shot up by Tombstone, a rival ace that you had wronged in the past. You very nearly died and the spirit of your old Falcon fighter plane may or may not have sacrificed itself to ensure you make a full recovery so you could keep flying. Painkillers are weird like that.Anyways, thanks to the magic of ragnaid, you're now itching to get back in a plane and into the air.(cont)
>>27978387"What do you MEAN there's no planes for me to fly!?" You blink. After spending several days in a hospital tent recovering from dozens of bullet wounds, this was one of the LAST things you wanted to hear.You're currently back on the Kestrel in the main hangar bay. Unfortunately, unlike a few days ago, you see a few less pilots and a LOT less planes occupying the deck..."I'm sorry, Ribbons." Heartbreaker, your wing leader, sighs. "Our air wing took a beating in that last battle. Most of our pilots are fun, but half our planes are either too damaged to fly or completely trashed. We're fixing them up at the Bastion as fast as we can, but replacements are few and I'm giving priority to pilots who DIDN'T die on the operating table for fifteen seconds.""It was more like eight." You frown. "Come on, you KNOW I can handle it!""I'm sorry, Ribbons, but you're grounded for he time being. If we can get some freshly repaired planes transferred, I'll consider it." Heartbreaker sighs.Well, that was a huge downer. You sigh and consider your options. You COULD try badgering one of your wingmen to loan you their planes, but that wasn't something you felt fully comfortable with. You could try going over Heartbreaker's head and appealing directly to Captain Jurgens, too, but you're not sure if you had the clout for that sort of thing. You also heard that Lucas and his team were on board now as well, prepping for some kind of big mission. Maybe you could go see him, if only just to complain about the situation.>Try to convince your wingmen to loan you a plane.>Appeal to Captain Jurgens>Gripe about your situation with Lucas.>Other

>>27978394Well, you suppose you could just go gripe about the situation to Lucas. He was always a pretty good listener. You slowly make your way off the hangar deck down to the troops decks below. Those Tier One guys loved setting up in one little corner of the ship, so you had no doubt Lucas would be down there, or at least somebody who would know where he is.You see some other T1 operators milling about the entrance to their little domain. You see them staring at you, as if you were something that didn't belong."You lost or something, pilot?" One of them grumbles.The way he says that last word kind of bothers you.>Be polite. Just ask if they've seen Lucas.>Be cautious. Just back off and look for him somewhere else.>Be confident. Stride in like you own the place.>Other
>>27978763>>Be polite. Just ask if they've seen Lucas.

>>27978763>>Be polite. Just ask if they've seen Lucas."We don't take kindly to you pilots over here."
>>27978763"Well..." You give your most innocent smile and even twirl a bit of your hair for additional effect. Even the most hardened of operators still had hearts,so you were kind of banking on that to get them to trust you. "I've just been looking for my brother, Lucas. You know, kinda short, with really fluffy brown hair?">roll 1d20
>>27978967Dodged a bullet.
>>27978984Indeed, seems like I'm outta luck tonight. Guess that means Essay time.
>>27978963You see the operators noticeably cough and look away, and you grin. You've still got the charm. No guy could stay menacing with a straight face when you went all out."Y-yeah, he's in there, third door to the right." One of the operators mumbles, pointing in the correct direction."Thank you so much~!" You smile as you walk past. To really strike it home you put a bit of a swing in your step, making your skirt swish side to side...You hear a loud BANG like something fell over behind you, but you don't want to break your focus so you don't turn around to see what had happened. You finally reach the door and give it a good knock."Just a second!" You hear Lucas' muffled voice from inside. The door then swings open, and you see Lucas, his normally fluffy hair still damp from a recent shower. "Oh hey, Lara, I didn't expect to see you here, what's up?""Ah well, I'm just really pissed off, is all." You sigh. "Can I come in?""Sure." Lucas nods and steps aside. You just walk in and drop down onto his bunk."It's just not fair!" You gripe. "I've been flying missions since the beginning of our deployment here, I'm an established ace, and done everything my wing lead has asked of me and more, and he can't even spare a single plane for to fly in!" "Oh, wow." Lucas sighs, realizing you're just using him to vent your frustrations on. "I thought the Kestrel had a lot of extra planes in case of losses.""Evidently not." You pout. "I mean, I get shot up, make a full recovery, and now I have nothing to do but sit on my ass.""Please don't curse so much..." Your brother shakes his head."Hmph. Well, what else am I going to do?""Well, actually, I was going to go see Nemo. Apparently SImo's making her break out all the really fancy stuff, seeing as how we're going on a big mission and all. You wanna tag along?">Sure>No thanks>Other

>>27979171>SureMaybe she'll have a plane... OF COURSE she'll have a plane!
I wonder if the "big mission" is in underwater ruins or on a remote island? If it's the former, I can't wait to hear the reactions of the male squaddies over the form accentuating wetsuits of the female squaddies. Plus if Morgan is stacked, we'll ponder how the hell she got through physicals while hiding those assets...

>>27979171"Sure, I guess I can tag along." You standing back up.With Lucas' presence, none of the other operators seem to consider bothering you or anything, and you leave their little corner of the ship with considerably less effort than you got in before. Personally, you've never really gone into Nemo's lab much, much less met the scientist herself. You've only ever been delivered the smart lances she developed, and then submitted written reports on their performance."Well, if you haven't met Nemo before, she's well..." Lucas frowns as he tries to find the right word, "a bit odd.""I'm sure I can handle it." You say.However, what you're more curious about is this really big mission Lucas and his team were going on. Last you checked, on day they were at base, then the next, they were in the capital, and literally the day after that they were on the Kestrel with all the other T1 teams. Something definitely was going down.>Ask Lucas about the mission he's going on.>Eh, you'll find out eventually anyways.>Other

>>27979788He's waiting till the end of the thread likely.
>>27979788Soon.Also guess the character
>>27979520"So, how about that big mission you're supposed to be going on? Can you give your dear sister any details?" You coo."Well, I'm not really supposed to-""Pllleeeeeaaaaaase?""We're just looking for something in the ocean, is all." Lucas shrugs.Ah, well, that was no fun, only telling you the bare details, but Lucas was always a real big stickler for rules so you guess it wouldn't be that easy to get him to ignore OPSEC. Well, that doesn't mean you can't still have a bit of fun, so you decide to change the subject."So the, Lucas, how's things being going with Faaaaallyyyyynnnn~?" You coo, hugging your brother from behind and whispering in his ear. "Did you two go. all. the. way?""W-what are you talking about!?" Lucas' face instantly goes red."Oh, you know," You giggle "Kissing, cuddling, or god forbid, HAND HOLDING. How far have you two taken it?" "T-that's none of your business."Oooh, you were really getting to him now.>Press the attack!>Nah, you've teased him enough.>Other

>>27979814"Come on, now." You say with a predatory smile. "I'm your sister, after all. I won't tell anybody else! Have you guys even slept together, yet?""A-a few times." Lucas mumbles."I bet with your clothes still on, huh?"He's silent."Come on, Lucas, you should be a bit more assertive. I bet Falynn is just DYING for you to take it to the next level with her~!""Well, then what about you?" Lucas says. "How do you handle things with your boyfriend?"Oh crap. You suddenly remember that you don't actually have one.>LIE. It'll be really embarrassing if he found out you don't have one!>ABORT: Try and change the subject!>TRUTH: It will set you free.>Other

>>27980435>implying I haven't alreadyNah, just kidding.
>>27980469Probably gonna happen before Falynn and Lucas hooked up.
>>27980454>>27980469Gross. Don't NTR.Lucina overheard some T1s talking and she comes to Lucas asking about sex because Train and Ramirez didn't do a very good job and then things get awkward and then sexy.Then at the end have Lucina ask "What's a condom and why do people keep wearing them?"Maximum Lucas panic.
>>27980129"H-he didn't make it." You say sadly."Oh my god, I'm so sorry-" Lucas blinks."The mechanics said he couldn't be saved, so they're taking him apart for scrap." You sigh."What? Oh- dang it, Lara!"You break out in laughter. "Hahaha, I really got you going there, didn't I?""That wasn't funny." Lucas glowers."I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I just couldn't resist!"However, if Lucas wanted to press the issue any further, he missed his chance, as you had already reached Nemo's lab. However, as you enter, you don't immediately see anybody."Huh, that's strange, Nemo's normally asleep on the table there." Lucas frowns.Then the two of you hear a loud banging in the back and you rush over to see Falynn and Nemo lugging around crates and fiddling with various gadgets."Do we need this?" Falynn takes out something that you don't even have the first clue what it does."Nope, junk it""But you didn't even look-""Junk it."Falynn then shrugs and tosses the thing away."Hey, Nemo, Falynn." Lucas waves. "Lucas! Lara! You're here!" Falynn smiles."Oh, about time." Nemo mumbles. "Come on, I have a few things to show you. Who wants to go first?">You go first.>Let Lucas go first.>Other
>>27980607>>Let Lucas go first.
>>27980607>>Let Lucas go first.Is it a Ruhm copy?!
>>27980565>Train and RamirezI knew Lucina was half steam engine. Truly, there is no human woman who can take The Ramirez.
>>27980565NTR is best idea though. Just imagine the cute moe of Falynn. Her adorable face showing going between shock to pain. As she slowly starts tearing up. All the while Lucas is too busy having a good time to notice.
>>27980607>other"Hey, Fal. When are you and Lucas gonna do the deed?"
>>27980635Now that you think about it, I think Lucina would stand a pretty good chance against a Valkyrur if she used both of her god-tier stealth and CQC skills.If Morgan gets her conditioning activated, get Lucina to beat it out of her.
>>27980655You're doing it wrong.Its Falynn raping Lucina, NTRing Lucas
>>27980565I thought of a similar scenario but it always ends up being redirected toward Alex and Elsa.An informed Lucina is a slightly scarred Lucina
>>27980694The difference there is that Elsa is predatory and Lucina is just inquisitive/curious, although Alek and Lucas are nearly identical. The difference in aspects/character between their partners would be enough to make two discrete scenarios, though.
>>27980787Alek was really anti social.
>>27980787Lucas is a bit more possessive/aggressive than Alek.
>>27980845So once Lucas gets his switch flip there is no stopping him.Hickies, hieckies everywhere
>>27980871...okay now I kind of want to see Falynn covered in hickies after their first time.The reactions the squad would have to that would be amazing.
>>27980871Quite right. Just take a look at the source material... Or don't it was shitty anyways.>>27980936Your wish is noted.
>>27980945Oh god that was perfect.
>>27980607"Mmmmm, I guess Lucas can go first." You say, nodding to your brother."Oh, thanks!" Lucas grins as he follows Nemo. Falynn also moves to follow but you cut her off."Hey, Falynn!" You lean in and whisper conspiratorially. "Girl to girl, have you ever gotten serious with Lucas? Like, anything that's not cuddling or hand holding?""Um. Um." Falynn stammers. "IdontknowwhatyourtalkingaboutIgottagonow!" She takes off after Lucas before you can do anything else. Well, you tried, at least. You just grin and shake your head. . You follow the others to another little chamber tucked away at the back of the lab, where you see something rather monstrous and imposing."W-what the hell is that?!?" You shout."Juggernaut Heavy Assault Armor." Nemo says nonchalantly. I actually designed it to work with the Assault Pack. I took a page from the heavy armors Artificial Valkyria wear and designed something normal humans could wear while giving roughly equivalent protection.""So... what's it made of?" Falynn asks."A series of layers of alternating synthetic fibers, steel armor, ceramic, and ballistic plates all interweaved together." Nemo drones on. "Will pretty much stop anything short of tank round, but it's naturally extremely heavy, as its name implies."Wow..." You could almost swear Lucas' eyes were sparking at the sight. Heh, so cute.>You should totally wear that thing.>Eh, I don't think it fits you.>Other
>>27981061>>Eh, I don't think it fits you.Too heavy, may be a "light" variant will do.
>>27981061>>You should totally wear that thing.
>>27981061>>You should totally wear that thing.Do it. Whatever he's doing is gonna be crazy.
>>27981061>You should totally wear that thing.>Where's Falynn's matching suit?
Still considering that Falynn should get a combat shield.
So what would Lucas write on the crotchplate, get sum doesnt really fit him.
>>27981061>You should totally wear that thing.
>>27981124A list:Have a nice daySmiley FaceHONOR!
>>27981061>>You should totally wear that thing.Charging into battle with an M60 rigged to an ammo backkpack and armored head to toe? Gentlemen, this is how we turn the Gunner from a defensive class to an offensive one.
>>27981061>You should totally wear that thing.I APPROVE OF THIS LINE OF MILITARY RESEARCH
>>27981135>HONOR!Ok, we need to wear it.
>>27981135>HONOR!I like you.
>>27981156>>27981161>>27981171Lucas' family has a coat of arms from Williams' side right? we should put it on a shoulder plate or somewhere on the suit.
>>27981124>peaceful resolution>i'm sure we can talk this out>[X] touch fluffy hair
>>27981161>>27981171Yes, it reminds our enemies to maintain their HONOR by not attacking another person's crotch. Cause that's a dick move (no pun intended).
>>27981124"This is my honor. Above is my guns."
>>27981206Then brag goes and scribbles on the reverse plate.>My OTHER HONOR
A thought occurs about the Juggernaut armor: for all its protection offered, it's probably gonna be pretty damn heavy. If we ever get knocked into a puddle of water that goes higher than our face, we're gonna be fucked over. We'll also be fucked over if we happen to be wading right into a White Phosphorus attack by the enemy--that shit will dig into our armor while melting it. We should request Nemo creates some quick-release latches or pull-strings on the vest, greaves, and vambraces--just in case we're in a situation where we need to get it off quickly.
>>27981061"You should try it on!" You say."Well... it certainly LOOKS safe..." Falynn nods."All right, just hold still." Nemo says.After about ten minutes of fitting and gruntwork, Lucas finally manages to put the entire armor on. He's barely even recognizable, but he definitely looked really menacing."So how does it feel?" You ask."Surprisingly easy to move around in." Lucas says, his voice a bit muffled. He does a few basic movements and twists. "Probably going to real hard to run in, and not really that easy to see, but it's otherwise pretty effective.""Good, while you're at it, you can try this." Nemo hands Lucas another MG. "It's not an exact copy, but I applied the lessons I learned from analyzing the Ruhm. This is the modern variant I came up with.""Nice!" You guess Lucas is probably beaming under that helmet of his.>Ask what Nemo has for you.>Ask if Nemo has anything for Falynn.>Other
>>27981061>>Eh, I don't think it fits you.Not very mobile with something like that. And good luck carrying two chicks while wearing it.
>>27981338>>Ask what Nemo has for you.
>>27981308An armor purge feature? That can be useful when we need to have armor going into an area, and removing it when we need to be mobile.>>27981338>Ask if Nemo has anything for Falynn.

>>27981338>Ask what Nemo has for you.>Ask if Nemo has anything for Falynn.
>>27981338Bragg, Edwin and Sparky totally need to get some of those.
>>27981338"Well, that's nice and all, but don't leave out lil' Falynn here!" You say, putting your arm around her shoulders. "Can't she have something nice?"Nemo turns to look at her and narrows her eyes."Hmmmmm, I might have something." Nemo nods. She ducks down and heaves up what looks like a Fencer shield."Um, last I checked, Falynn's an engineer, not a fencer." Lucas points out."I am aware of that." Nemo nods. "It's smaller and made out of lighter materials, since engineers have to carry a lot of weight already. It's good against most types of small arms except for anything past 7.62mm or AP rounds. But, using this means you'll be restricted to one handed weapons or tools while its deployed.">Sure, she should take it.>Nah, she could do without it.>Other
>>27981505>OtherWhat does Falynn think?
>>27981505>>Sure, she should take it.Combine with Juggernaut for spearhead
>>27981387Nah. Honestly the main reason Lucas works so well with it is due to his fighting style and class.Those three kind of need their speed.
>>27981505>>Sure, she should take it.
>>27981505>>Nah, she could do without it.
>>27981549Bragg is exactly the same class, and he would arguably need it more, considering how his mobility is already limited by lugging around a HMG.Sparky and Edwin are Lancers and some of the most valuable members of the team, more protection is always good for them. Not like they're scouts or anything.
>>27981673Ah forgot about Bragg. lol.Though the risks to Edwin and sparky is they mainly go after tanks and shit. Which the armor can't really defend against. Kind of better if they can move out of the way in decent time.
>>27981705Lancer's are high priority targets, although Edwin and Sparky would probably be better off with just a stronger chest plate and helmet rather than the full suit.
>>27981505"Yeah, it would probably be a big help to you." You say to Falynn and lean in."You could also use it to protect Lucas for a change!"Falynn blushes at the thought and just nods silently."And last but not least." Nemo at waves you to follow her. "There is this project I have been working on.""I've been told that Emmeria and even the Empire already have jet aircraft in mass production, which is a bit vexing, but understandable." Nemo says as she slips her way past crates and piles of disassembled junk. "But this jet, I've been working on for a number of years to get it 'right'. I doubt the Emmerians and Imps even spent any more than a few months on their designs."She then brings you to a small little clearing in the sea of junk, to show you what had to be one of the most beautiful planes you had ever seen. That smooth, sleek shape and those delta shaped wings... it looked almost heavenly to you."I call it the Dragon." Nemo continues, patting the plane's side. "It's been in development for so long because honestly, we've been breaking a lot of molds with this. Delta wings are an unproven concept, and we've found that while they give extremely good speed, they lack in life which makes their flight characteristics rather unstable. But... we believe we've alleviated those problems by using a compound delta wing, that you see here."You really had no clue what Nemo was saying, but you don't care. You had to have this plane. You HAD to."So, do you like it?">Hell yeah. When can I fly it?>Eehhhh, I'll probably stick to the Falcon.>Other
>>27981744>>Hell yeah. When can I fly it?
>>27981744>>Hell yeah. When can I fly it?FUCK YES DRAKEN
>>27981744>Hell yeah. When can I fly it?>Other : Fangirl like a bitch>eeeee forever.
>>27981744WE DRAKEN NOWThis is gonna be awesome.
>>27981744"Well, given that I don't have a ride, I will have to say yes. But, Nemo. I think I'm in love.
>>27981744>Hell yeah. When can I fly it?"NEMO HAVE MY BABIES"
>>27981744DrakenBest plane.2x30mm FUCKOFF CANNONS
>>27981744"Hell yeah! When can I fly it?!" You say, your eyes sparkling like Lucas' previously were."Well... me and Falynn already did all the touch up work. All we have to do is get it to the elevator up to the hangar deck, fuel it up, and it should be ready to go.""C-can I get in it?" You ask."I don't see the problem." Nemo shrugs.You give the girliest, highest pitched squeal you can manage and huge Nemo."You're welcome.""Heh, well you have fun with that, Lara." Lucas grins as he finishes extracting himself from the Juggernaut armor. Well, me and Falynn have to be heading back now. Good luck with that new plane!""Uh huh yeah, bye." You say, totally not listening to him. You pop the canopy and look inside. There, rolled up perfectly in the seat is a bright blue scarf. It almost looked bit like......a ribbon.Smiling, you just pick up the scarf and unconsciously wrap it around your neck."Hey, so how do I look?" You ask Nemo, doing a quick pose."Silly." Nemo responds bluntly. "But I can see the appeal."Grinning, you jump into the cockpit proper and start familiarizing yourself with the controls."I have to warn you," Nemo says through the radio, "while they work on the same basic principles, flying a jet is fundamentally different from flying a propeller plane. It goes at much faster and speeds and consequently exerts much higher G forces in maneuvers.""Okay." You nod."So, I can get the Captain to clear a test flight, if you want.">HELL YES I WANNA FLY THIS THING.>Actually I should probably familiarize myself with the controls a bit, first.>Other

It just screams special snowflake.
>>27981933>>Actually I should probably familiarize myself with the controls a bit, first.Seeing as how we just got shot up, we'd probably be a little cautious.
>>27981933>Actually I should probably familiarize myself with the controls a bit, first.Lets not pretend to be a Hawker Hunter test pilot...
>>27982037Planes can smell fear. You must tame the beast.
>>27982045You know that's Gallia's entire schtic right? Being a special snowflake?
>>27982062At least in the original game they had the decency to be utterly steamrolled in the first part of the war.The absolutely shitty Gallia special snowflake worldbuilding here is starting to drive me nuts though.
>>27982045You've gotta remember something: those words come from a Gallian scientist. Of course she talks smack against them. It's called Nationalism.
>>27982045>what is smack talk
>>27982045Yeah, like how the Empire has Artificial Valkyrias and everyone else doesn't.
Gallia's technical knowhow is likely justified with how many Darcsens fled there during the wars.That and Nemo was trained by one.
>>27982120You mean the inhuman monsters that few would experiment with? The same ones Gallia cribbed off Imperial technology and improved?
>>27982146This is absolutely nothing inherent in Darcsens being smarter, Isara and her dad were just simply very intelligent, race not involved.
>>27981933"Well, I should probably familiarize myself with the controls first before I do any actual flying." You say."A wise choice." Nemo nods. "Well, take our time."It takes at least another week before you're confident in flying the Dragon for real. During that time, the Kestrel changes its course, breaking away from its holding pattern near the Bastion and it begins to drift to the west, towards where presumably that special mission was going to take place.Because of the tight timeframe, Heartbreaker and Edge reluctantly allow you to take the Dragon out for combat operations, despite you not having that many hours in it. However, you've been doing nothing but learning the controls, and as you had shown previously with the Falcon, you had a natural aptitude for learning the quirks and characteristics of planes.(cont)
>>27982169You misunderstand. Any large group of people migrating anywhere is sure to have some specialists among their number.
>>27982188You have seen news reports and heard stories that Artemis had also gotten its hands on some Northstars and were equipping their aces with it. Similarly, Erusea was allegedly being sold Imperial issue jet fighters, though nobody had any clue what they looked like or what they were capable of.Also, Min was no longer on the Kestrel. He had been transferred off while you were being hospitalized as part of a prisoner exchange to get back some Gallian pilots that had been shot down and captured. You felt kind of sad that neither of you had the chance to say goodbye to each other. You also had some conflicting feelings about the thought of facing him in battle again.Currently, you were flying out to rendezvous with an allied air squadron to escort them to a waiting Emmerian aircraft carrier. With the Dragon, you can fly higher faster than anything you flew before, and you enjoyed hanging out over 50,000 feet in the air, bouncing and scaring the shit out of the older prop planes.However, this time, you look down and see that you're not just escorting any squadron, but a squad full of Northstars. In fact, one of them bears a very familiar dark grey paint scheme...Tombstone.>You've got the perfect opportunity to ambush him right now.>Challenge him to a duel.>Just ignore it.>Other
>>27982198>Just ignore it.no need to start shit yet
>>27982198>OtherJust give him a holler.
>>27982198>>Just ignore it.Not the time or place.
>>27982198>>Other>MockHeeeey Tombstone.I hope you didn't write my name inside your cockpit~
>>27982198>>Just ignore it.Let's play it reasonable here, it's not th time to be pulling stunts or anything.
>>27982198>>Challenge him to a duel.
>>27982192As opposed to the incomparably vaster economic and military might of Emmeria and the Empire?Seriously?
>>27982198>>OtherMock that shitstain
>>27982224>military mightWhoops, meant industrial might.
>>27982198>>Just ignore it.
>>27982198>>OtherQuick! We need Tombstone related PUNS!Failing that Lara could sing.
>>27982224No doubt they have an industrial advantage. However, the Empire tends to use much of it on overly complicated, underperforming "Wunderwaffen".
>>27982224A) the Empire is very set in their ways and to be honest excluding genius darcsen made things, they did out-muscle the usual tanks.B) Both those counties send resources fighting and aren't as prone to making high end prototypes. The fact that Maximillian took the few they did make and got them wrecked likely didn't go over too well.
>>27982224>>27982242Gallia pretty much INVENTED planes, and Darcsens are traditionally very skilled engineers due to the fact that they're often relegated to industrial jobs. That's why one of the stereotypes of them is that they stink of grease and oil. Gallia is one of the few nations that actually listens to them.And I wouldn't be surprised if the other nations had a lot of conservatives that cockblocked innovation. This is a setting where stable monarchies still exist.
>>27982252Just a quick hi and bye that day, Tombstone?That was really stone cold.
>>27982259I'm sure I saw a lot of conventional units in canon.>>27982269A) This only supports my pointB) Neither Emmeria nor the Empire are currently at war. And the Empire not going for super-prototypes? Seriously? Just look at canon! They were the only ones with bloody prototypes.>>27982259And jets wouldn't count as high priorities to Emmeria and the Empire? Really?
>>27982198You swoop down among the Emmerian and Artemis planes inverting your plane so it hovers upside down over Tombstone's. You see him raise his helmeted head to look at you, and you just wave at him."Hi." You say over the radio.Tombstone doesn't give any answer. Instead, he just pulls away."Ribbons! Hey there, cutie!" You hear a very familiar, playful voice. "White Fang, you're still alive?" You grin."Heh, that's right." You see a Northstar with a white wolf's head pull up alongside you. "Looks like you got a new ride as well.""That I did.">Ask him what he thinks of the Northstar.>Ask him what he knows about Tombstone.>Ask him what happened to him during the Erusean invasion.>Other
>>27982358>>Ask him what he thinks of the Northstar.
>>27982358>>Ask him what happened to him during the Erusean invasion.
>>27982358>Ask him what he thinks of the Northstar.>Ask him what happened to him during the Erusean invasion.>try to outflirt
>>27982358>>Ask him what he knows about Tombstone.
>>27982340You did see a lot of conventional units. However, think how many more they could have had if they didn't build shit like the giant land battleship. That level of effort translates to entire armored divisions, if not more.>>27982358>Ask him what happened to him during the Erusean invasion.
>>27982280Planes are solely the result of the Ayn Rand-esque supergenius Isara, considering that she died soon after, I'm very dubious of the assertion that the Darcsens could have outpaced the entire scientific effort of nation with orders of magnitude more resources to call upon.
>>27982381The fact that they could afford to build a giant land battleship while still steamrolling Gallia says a lot about how much more resources they could call upon than Gallia.
>>27982386You realize that nobody's ever said the Dragon is outright better than any other jet, right?It just seems more like that a perfectionist like Nemo wouldn't necessarily agree with the "design a something and crank that shit out ASAP" philosophy Emmeria, the Empire, and presumably the Federation have.
>>27982424Not to mention the Dragon is kind of a one off at the moment. It's no where near Mass Production.
So when is the best time for the Dragon to show problems that need to be fixed?
>>27982405And when they lost it, it was irrecoverable.
>>27982448Not to mention it was armed with a Valkyrian lance the size of a tower.
>>27982358"So, where were you during the whole invasion?" You ask."Ah, you know, flying around, blowing shit up, just like everybody else." White Fang laughs. "But more specifically, I was flying air cover for the Navy. Got about six kills that day. You?""Ummmm, my memory's kinda fuzzy on that one, but my wingmates say I got eight." You say. "Hey, Hey Tombstone! How many kills did you get that day?"Silence."Come ooooooooon, Tombstone, I'm just gonna keep bothering you all day if you don't answer!""Six." Come the harsh, terse reply."So... are you including me in that count or not?" You say, with a bit of a harsh edge of your own.Silence."HEY RIBBONS!" White Fang butts in, probably to try and keep things from escalating. "How about a race? See which one of our machines is better?">Sure!>I don't know, wouldn't Magic get angry?>Other
>>27982424>You realize that nobody's ever said the Dragon is outright better than any other jet, right?>"But this jet, I've been working on for a number of years to get it 'right'. I doubt the Emmerians and Imps even spent any more than a few months on their designs."Nemo certainly seems to think so.>>27982448>Thinking that the loss of one admittedly large tank would damage a nation's industrial capabilities.I'm starting to think you have no idea what you're talking about.
>>27982477>>Sure!>>27982481It's her freaking baby, OF COURSE shes going to say it's number 1.
>>27982477>>I don't know, wouldn't Magic get angry?
>>27982481Characters are entitled to their opinions regardless of factual accuracy, darling Anon.>>27982477>Sure! Time to win.
>>27982477>>Other"Can I take a raincheck? This bird's first time in the air."
>>27982484>>27982496And I'm sure Merc isn't going to treat it as completely superior to what everyone else has, right?
>>27982524Why are you being such a negative nancy about it.
>>27982524Superior in different aspects.We're going to lose this competition, did you know that?
>>27982546Because pretty much everything I've seen in VMQ has Gallia having everything superior or at least on par to what other nations with vastly more resources has. He hasn't given me much of a reason to expect otherwise.
>>27982524Eh who knows. If it's top the line I would go for it being better because it isn't designed for mass production so she can jam a bunch of gadgets on it. On the other hand there is like 1 of her and hundreds of the others that can be easily mass produced because they where designed to be.Well at least that is how I would do it.
>>27982555I'll believe it when I see it.
>>27982524thats the name of the game with Gallian equipment and personnel: leaps and bounds above the competition, but not very many
>>27982569I guess it's a matter of quantity vs. quality and finding a right balance. Would you rather have a small number of Elite troops or a large number of Regulars?
>>27982586Go take a look at the stats of the F-104 and the Saab 35.If the F-104 was good at one thing, its was GO FAST.
>>27982569The Demons aren't even officially part of the Gallian army proper. Yes, they get a lot of R&D funding from the government, but in terms of sheer numbers and production capacity, they pale in comparison to their larger neighbors.I mean, shit, the Edelweiss was the exact same thing. You gonna bitch that Gallia's OP because they had ONE tank that was obviously better than anything else the Imps had?
>>27982587>>27982597That's not how it works anons, the Empire and Emmeria can afford to have a larger number of troops because of their larger resource base, not because there was some arbitrary decision to go for a large number of redshirts. Gallia doesn't have that number of troops because it simply can't match.
>>27982621Honestly the Edelwiess kind of didn't. Compared to some of the batshit tanks they where using. Was better then the average tank though.
>>27982645Though the Edelweiss had a bunch of prototype equipment. Such as being able to be operated by 2 people (Cmdr. & Driver) by replacing the loader with an auto-loader.
>>27982645Were you even playing the same game? The base Edelweiss was good enough to take on basic Imp tanks. When fully upgraded, it was literally fucking unstoppable, like plopping a modern MBT into WWII.
>>27982621>Rope the Belkans into help building them a flying carrier>Said flying carrier is now controlled by the Demons instead of Belka for God knows for what reason>Also battleshipYou were saying?
>>27982662Then you hit that one crazy motherfucker who's name I forget. The one with the tank that was like 20 feet long.
>>27982637Thus Gallia starts to train their troops as soon as they can hold a rifle. Someone who has a decade or more of experience usually outmatches a conscript.
>>27982637the VMQ-verse doesn't work like that, even in the games. for some reason, all the badasses and geniuses in the world gathered in one small country about the size of poland and decided to kick ass
>>27982679Then your industrial base wouldn't even exist, because so much time is being put into training.
>>27982689That's called terrible world-building anon.
>>27982679Eh not really. If it wasn't for Welkin Gallia would be a smoking crater. Imperials where badass just one had a a genius and a valk helping and narrative luck.
>>27982691It's actually a year or two of militia training when they're teenagers.
>>27982689You realize you basically described the the first game, as well, considering that Gallia's most skilled and badass soldiers all just happened to be gathered together in a single unit under a TACTICAL GENIUS and his MECHANICAL GENIUS sister.
>>27982721Which means they're not much better than everyone else on average, because that training and the physical conditioning you get from it isn't constantly being reinforced.Not to mention that everyone else still has far more resources than you.
>>27982691I assume you've never heard of the militia? Compare to the modern National Guard: As shown in recent conflicts they are on par with regular Army, and only go out a weekend a month, with an additional 2 weeks per year. That isn't much of a time commitment.
>>27982734You mean like Finland vs Russia during the Winter War?
>>27982477"Okay, you're on!" You grin."Awesome!" White Fang's enthusiasm just oozes through the radio. "So, how do you want to do this. Straight up speed, or maneuverability? Or a little of both?"You pause to ponder your options. From what you've heard, the Northstar was designed as an interceptor, so speed was its top priority. One the other hand, Nemo had told you the Dragon was intended to be equal parts interceptor and dog fighter, so you're pretty sure you can out turn White Fang, but not necessarily outrun him.>Well, you need a challenge. Go for speed!>Let's make him sweat. Go for maneuverability!>Let's be fair. Do a bit of both.
>>27982780>>Let's be fair. Do a bit of both.
>>27982780>Let's be fair. Do a bit of both.make it interesting-loser has to buy the other dinner later
>>27982780>>Let's make him sweat. Go for maneuverability!
>>27982672I'm saying Jager's charm.
>>27982780>Let's be fair. Do a bit of both.It's a learning experience, not a trip to the shame cube.
>>27982672Because, you know, Jager happens to be personal friends with the leaders of both countries?And don't blame Merc for that. It was the readers who wanted Jager to BEFRIEND Karla.
>>27982672I'd imagine the Demons often act in the interests of Gallia, without actually being Gallia. You can see the benefits.
>>27982748Uh yes, because the US is totally retarded enough to not give them additional training before sending them off to a warzone chockfull of guerrillas.>>27982749Finland would have been crushed should the war have continued, despite the disproportionate casualties, should the USSR not have other priorities.
>>27982842Because the Demons REALLY NEEDED a flying carrier and battleship. As in it overrided the strategic imperatives of the leaders of both countries.>>27982844And I'm sure they need a battleship and a flying carrier for that.
>>27982780You decide to make things fair, and incorporate both speed and maneuverability challenges. What was the point of a competition otherwise?"Okay, see those marker bouys in the water? We'll start off by weaving through each and every one, then it's a straight shot over open sea to the carrier. How's that sound?""Sounds like you're gonna lose!" White Fang laughs. "Loser buys the winner a drink?">Sure>How about up the stakes to dinner?>Nah>Other
>>27982902>>How about up the stakes to dinner?
>>27982902>>How about up the stakes to dinner?Flirting Lara, wooo
>>27982877Did you forget Jager, OUR Jager happens to be still in charge of the Demons?It's not a question of need. It was never a question of need. We /tg/ played this guy for the entirety of VMQ1. He quite literally has /tg/ bouncing around inside his head telling him to do stuff.Jager for all intents and puposes as far as VMQ goes is /tg/ personified.
>>27982902>How about up the stakes to dinner? Winner's choice.Husbando Hard 2: Husbando Harder.
>>27982877Because maybe Jager likes having big, expensive, one of a kind toys? It's not like it's the sole territory of villains.
>>27982914The desires of /tg/ does not even begin to justify how the demons the financial, material, scientific and political costs of getting a flying carrier and battleship genius. All you told me was that this all just happened to satisfy /tg/'s cock.
I also forgot to mention, Gallia has a stupidly high concentration of Ragnite. Everyone wants it, the Empire and the Feds to fuel their war machine.
>>27982914>Jager for all intents and puposes as far as VMQ goes is /tg/ personified.Hahahahah no. Not socially retarded enough.
>>27982918At least the villians had the excuse of having the industrial base of a superpower at his disposal.
>>27982959And Jaeger is sitting on top of the largest concentration of Ragnite in the world.
>>27982953Oh wow, they have a lot of ragnite. Now where are the refineries, factories and scientists to put it all to its full potential?Protip, there's a reason Australia is not a world superpower.
>>27982954he solved literally all of his problems except for his final confrontation with Karla by punching them in the face. That one he solved by telling her to stab him. He was pretty damn socially retarded
>>27982973yess because aussies are dumb
>>27982902>How about up the stakes to dinnerAw yis
>>27982959Eh? He probably just called in a bunch of favors. Jager knew a lot of people in power. That and I don't think we have ever even seen what the Gailla government really has back at home. Since most of the action is in a jungle hellhole.
>>27982971They have a lot of ragnite, I don't see anything about it being the biggest, not do I see anything about financial and economic resources to call upon.This is equivilent to saying that Australia should be a world superpower because it has a lot of material resources.
>>27982988To the extent of ordering in a flying carrier and battleship?Are you bullshitting me? That's an absolutely retarded reason for anyone with a semblance of intelligence.
>>27982992Gallia actually sells and utilizes their resources. Australia doesn't exploit them as much as they should.
>>27982978Thing is that made a lot of sense for him to do. Considering the majority of the circumstances. Hell the best action scene that happened in the first game came from him being desperate enough to challenge a random knight pride.
>>27983002Australia is making a shitton of money thanks to the resource black hole that is china. And yet China (and America for that matter) still remains wearing the pants when it comes to relationships.
>>27982999That's the thing we really don't know context here. It's been 20 some years since then. So it's kind of hard to get a bead on exactly what happened. Right now we are kind of shooting in the dark.
>>27982902"How about we up the stakes to dinner?" You say."Hey, if you're offering!" White Fang laughs. "You ready?""Yeah.""Well LET'S GO THEN!"Both your Dragon and White Fang's Northstar takes off, and you quickly come to the buoys that will serve as your makeshift markers. Your hand hovers over the throttle as you try to decide the speed to take it.>Go fast, to ensure you can beat White Fang here.>Go slow, you've the advantage here.
>>27983040Well, what information I have does not give me the best of impressions of Merc's worldbuilding skills.The explanation better be fucking genius, because it's a big pill he's telling me to swallow here.
>>27983047>>Go slow, you've the advantage here.
>>27983047>>Go slow, you've the advantage here.deploy flaps!
>>27983047>>Go fast, to ensure you can beat White Fang here.
>>27983051Why are you even here if you're just going to spend two hours bitching about it nonstop.
>>27983047>Go slow, you've the advantage here.Low and slow, baby.
>>27982950That's exactly what I'm telling you. But as anon said, it has been 20 years. Jager has had a LOT of time to work with the contacts that he's accrued over his career, additionally has debts owed to him that can be called in, if not in straight up technology, in materials and resources to acquire that technology. It's not even that strange, in the span of 20 years in our own world we progressed from horse back to ancestral MBT's. We went from prop planes with barely any application to strategic bombing campaigns. Another 20 years later and we're fielding planes that literally use their throttles as a missile countermeasure, and in reply we made missiles that have international range for the express purpose of combating such aircraft.If you want to complain about bad world building take a look at our own world first, I assure you real life is about ten times more outlandish if you look in the right places.
>>27983051Honestly It's not so bad for me. All of Valkyria chronicles was harder for me to swallow then this.
>>27983075Believe it or not, I believe that Merc can progress beyond making Gallia the special snowflake capital of the world.Not to mention you guys are the ones who took my disgust at Nemo building a super fighter jet better than everyone else has so far (and belittling them for only putting in a few months, that has to be one of the stupidest comments I've seen in this quest) and turn it into an argument.Oh, and nice concession there.
>>27983047>>Go slow, you've the advantage here.Don't beat 'em in the quarter mile; we'll build up our lead slowly.
>>27983102>special snowflake That word is retarded bro. No seriously using that as a serious argument instantly makes you a retard for 48 hours. No matter the context.
>>27983100>That's exactly what I'm telling you.That all of this is to satisfy our cocks?>But as anon said, it has been 20 years. Jager has had a LOT of time to work with the contacts that he's accrued over his career, additionally has debts owed to him that can be called in, if not in straight up technology, in materials and resources to acquire that technology.Do you even realise what kind of investment it is to get a battleship/carrier? Especially if you're just a bloody PMC?Here's a hint, you have the vast majority of nations not having what one fucking PMC has. Unless this is the world of Ayn Rand where exceptional people can shit out gold bricks if they tried (and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised at this rate considering the bullshittery seen so far), this is fucking retarded with anyone knowing how to worldbuild without pulling shit out of your ass.>It's not even that strange, in the span of 20 years in our own world we progressed from horse back to ancestral MBT's. We went from prop planes with barely any application to strategic bombing campaigns. Another 20 years later and we're fielding planes that literally use their throttles as a missile countermeasure, and in reply we made missiles that have international range for the express purpose of combating such aircraft.This doesn't even address anything I've said so far.>If you want to complain about bad world building take a look at our own world first, I assure you real life is about ten times more outlandish if you look in the right places.Citations motherfucker, do you speak it?
>>27983120Then why don't you actually bring an argument to the table instead of whining at me for daring to insult your special snowflake nation in your special snowflake quest?
>>27983167That's the retarded part about it. The word doesn't mean anything at all. So you might as well replace that with UGUGLUBLUUBU!!
Would you cunts shut the fuck up already?
>>27983189Alright, I'll define for you within the context of this argument. I perceive a special snowflake as a spotlight hogger who has everything go his way, regardless of reality or common sense.
Rolled 16, 1, 1 = 18>>27983047You hit your flaps, slowing your craft down to make easier to negotiate the turns. You know that at the slower speed, you can make far tighter than White Fang, who you suspect is going to try and power through them.>roll 1d20
>>27983224Oh wow, well this is going to be good...
>>27983224>Rolled 16, 1, 1 = 18Oh shit.Lawndart.One less husbando.
>>27983224Did White Fang just wreck a brand new jet?
>>27983224really? we gotta save another stupid-ass pilot? this one better be cute...
>>27983256All pilots are good looking. It's a requirement in flight school.
>>27983217Ah now defined like that I can see what you mean. Things do have a habit of going their way yeah I've noticed that. On the other hand we are right next to them and can see a lot of the things they have.We really don't know much about the other nations or what they have top secret. That and most of this is background. I'm more interested in the characters so I never really care much about that.
>>27983224White Fang, White Fang what are you doin bro, that isn't how you fly plane.
>>27983228Unfortunately for White Fang, and fortunately for you, White Fang's insistence on going through the turns full speed works against him in the most spectacular way, in that as he goes through the first turn, something happens with his control systems, apparently being unable to respond at such speeds, and his plane just shoots past in a straight line. You slow down briefly to see if he's okay, but it doesn't seem like he's going to smash into the sea. By the time he gets his craft back under control, you're already through the turns in the straight away. Even if he completes the course and goes at full speed, there was no possible way he could catch up."Damn, guess I lost this one." White Fang laughs. "II didn't really expect my plane to do that.""Yeah, well we're all learning." You say reassuringly. "Also, you owe me a dinner. A really expensive one~.""Yeah, yeah, I figured that." White Fang laughs."Ribbons, White Fang, what the hell are you doing all the way out there?" You hear Magic's familiar, exasperated voice call out on the radio."Just taking the scenic route back. What's up?" White Fang says. "Tombstone's element has been engaged by Erusean fighters. Go in and assist!" Magic yells.>Fuck that guy.

>>27983384>Might as well go save his ass.Everyone WITH Tombstone hardly deserve to suffer because one of them is a psychotic bastard.

>>27983384>>Might as well go save his ass.
>>27983384Save his ass and ram it into the sea. No body and no burial, motherfucker.
Rolled 5>>27983384>>Might as well go save his ass.The best vengeance is forgiveness. Make him suffer in his own head.
>>27983401a name? he's going to owe us a name for every fighter we shoot down, plus a couple for saving him
>>27983416...Tombstone doesn't have normal people feelings, though.As displayed when he murdered (clinically dead!) Lara.
>>27983384>>Might as well go save his ass.Go in.
>>27983384>>Might as well go save THEIR ass.
>>27983384You sigh. Might as well go save his ass. Plus, you figure his wingmates probably didn't deserve to suffer for his misdeeds as well."Come on White Fang, let's get these bastards." You say. "Right behind you!" White Fang says, flying in formation with you."Can you get into contact with Tombstone's guys?" You ask."I've been trying but they're not answering. Either they're too busy or there's some kind of jamming going on."Now it just a question of how to approach.>Go in fast. You've got the element of surprise, but you won't be sure what you'll be facing.>Go in slow. They might see you coming but you'll be able to see them, too.>Other

Rolled 15, 3, 5, 10 = 33>>27983494"Let's go, full speed!" You say to White Fang."You got it!" White Fang responds.Both your Dragon and White Fang's Northstar make a climb before you reach the fight proper and dive down. You ready the trigger as your eyes dart for targets, focusing on the moving blurs, and fire.>roll 3d20

>>27983611You swoop past, firing as you go, but you can't really score a solid hit, as the enemy planes are just moving too fast, though you're pretty sure you might have nicked a couple.As you and White Fang pull out of the dive, you finally get a good look at what your facing and your heart races.It looked like you've finally come face to face with the Imp jet fighters. And these particular ones had yellow bellies. Good old Yellow Squadron. You see Yellow Thirteen in the mix, but it looks like he's breaking off. Meanwhile, Tombstone is busy engaging another Imp fighter, though it looks like he's a bit of a disadvantage.>Go after Yellow 13.>Go assist Tombstone.>Other
