You've got approximately 12 cubic miles of carrier to search, half a cup of coffee, it'll be dark down there and Patrick is wearing sunglasses.Time to hit it- the welfare of the fluffiest-headed tank loader could be at stake. Also you want to know if she's found anything down there. You'd spent the last 15min grabbing supplies for your spelunking expedition- flashlights, jackets, canteens and energy bars had all been fairly easy to find around the hanger, if you knew who to ask.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and Yukari Akiyama, the adorable loader for Miho's Panzer IV, has been missing since yesterday. You're pretty sure she's somewhere down in the endless tunnels and storage areas of the Oorai Highschool schoolship looking for tanks that will help you out against the school's first match against Saunder University. As for your team...>Who's on your rescue team?
>>28028288Nobody, we are our own rescue team!
>>28028288Roy and Saori.
Withholding vote for now, just wanted an excuse to post this.
>>28028288before we go any further, can we just like make a pit stop at Yukari's house and see if she is there?
>>28028288Miho, Hana and pic. Can never remember names.
>>28028321Tonkwitches, bitch. When?!~
>>28028465Please Legio, we tell you over and over, Tonk witches is deader than Panzers morals.
>>28028465After SWQ and SuWQ
>>28028465You get better chance with '89 tank witches.Too bad Maus is busy with not dying from ATP.
>>28028464Now that I think about it, we should get the Duck Team on this. They're athletic, so they'll be able to keep up a good pace for a long time.
>>28028288Patrick and Miho. 5 doesn't split evenly so we need to run into Patrick and draft him.
>>28028649I can't remember, who went on the date with the volley ball girl?I can never remember who did what.
>>28028710Loader when on a date the with bust blonde from Duck team.
Hmm, let's drag one of the Duck team with us.Also, Rose and Hana should be paired up for the search. Because reasons
>>28028749oh dear lord, this is so useful!thank you!
>>28028858this is also useful
>>28028901I JUST noticed that all of Duck team's favorite tanks are American.I suppose it's got something to do with the shitheap that is the I-Go
>>28028955at least the I-Go is covered in plot armor in the show. At least it is kind of justifiable to use in the show.... even though it never actually took out a tank... But it did its job well.
>>28028288Us, Miho, Saori, Hana, Saori's boytoy. Like we discussed last thread with Miho.
>>28028288Us, Miho. We'll make out in the depths of the carrier and summon Yukari using her vagina.Alternatively we take along Rose.
You assemble your team.Yourself, of course, and Miho- since we need someone with organization skills. Saori and Hana are also natural choices- Saori claims to have a great sense of direction and Hana evidently has bloodhound somewhere in her family tree. Of course if Saori comes, that means Richard, and you know he's got a great sense of direction. After that the choices are bit more specialized- you ask Roy, and Akebi volunteers to come along with him. Finally there's Rose- perhaps along with Miho one of the few people who has your full confidence and trust on this ship.Seven people should be plenty for a short expedition- And, your team assembled and provisions apportioned, your group heads out. As your group walks along the path heading towards the nearest entrance to the Underground, Miho explains the plans. "We're going to pair up and search in different directions. Try to stick to the main corridors and rooms and don't side-track around... We don't want anyone else getting lost down there." She checks a notebook she'd been scribbling in for a few minutes. "Here's the teams: Saori and Richard you head foreward along corridor 542-AB, Hana and Rose- aft along 542AB. Roy, Akebi? You're going to head towards the starboard side along 1027-LN, which leaves myself and Russells going port along 1027-LN."You clear your throat, turning around to walk backwards as you speak. "If anyone gets lost, just head in one direction until you get to 1027 or 542 and you'll can find your way back to the intersection..." People nods in understanding. You're feeling pretty good about your contribution to Miho's leadership when you plow into someone as you turn back around. "You're planning to go below decks?!" Sono Midoriko of the Oorai Public Morals Committee. "You aren't allowed down there! It's against School Regulations!">"We're looking for someone that might be lost, though!">"Out of the way, this doesn't concern you!">Other.
>>28029874>"We're looking for someone that might be lost, though!"We need more Hana
>>28029874>>"Out of the way, this doesn't concern you!"They can go fuck themselves, if we're going to get in trouble at least let it be by someone with actual real authority. I mean student regulatory people only have as much authority as the student body is willing to give them.
>>28029874>>"Out of the way, this doesn't concern you!"
>>28029874>Other."Excellent! Three people who knows the inner workings of this ship best!"Rope them into the search, split them into one Sodoclone per search team. Take Sodoko with us, since we'll probably deal with her better.Use this reason...>"We're looking for someone that might be lost, though!"... to get them to help.
>>28029874HAHA! Time for RURRUUS!
Actually BJ question. Did we read over the rules and regulations when we started school. For all we know they may just be throwing their authority around and we can go down there. After all, we did go down there looking for tanks.
>>28029874>Other."CONGRATULATIONS! You've been conscripted!... and no, you do not get a say in this."
>>28029874well look who decided to show up!>>28029935voting for this. they may be... useful. but seriously, why did we not just check her house before starting this expedition? She could be there right now asleep or something. Hell, have Saori call her house, she of all people must have their number.
>>28029874>"We're looking for someone that might be lost, though!"Plus there might be equipment for our club long forgotten!
>>28029959>>28030024my lack of Sodoko pictures is disturbing. I require more.
>>28029966Ditto.Or maybe the Rabbit team encountered Pazomi or Gomoyo instead of Sodoko, and they got the pass since they are just too cute.
>>28029935Seconding this. If this fail just walk past them
Conscription, we've a poor defenseless list student to find...well not defenseless as she probably carries around a collapsible spade...and a mess kit...and flare gun in her oversized backpack...you know what, she's still lost and you three know the place best, right? Surely your presence will lend official credence to our rescue mission
>>28029935This! Summon the Sodoclones!
>>28030212It would be hilarious if we made a custom crew portrait based on sodoclones. And i mean not just three we have.
>>28029923Now you're thinking like an American!
>>28030212Sodoko: Russels, this is not 'Nam. This is Oorai. There are rules.Jack: Yeah, but Yukari is missing. Get out of our way, we're going to find her.Sodoko: [pulls out a gun] Russels, my friend, you are entering a world of pain.Miho: Sodoko …Sodoko: You take one more step, and you're entering a world of pain.Jack: I'm not …Sodoko: A world of pain.Jack: Look, we can work something out here…Sodoko: [shouting] Has the whole world gone crazy?! Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules?!
You look the stern, dark-haired girl up and down. "Midoriko Sono right?" You ask as you point at her?She nods her head politely. "I am. You cannot go belowdecks! It's dangerous and you can get lost!" She says, continuing to stand in your way. "Well, we believe one of our friends might be lost and alone down there." You say, hoping to pull at her heartstrings. You need to get past Sono without her blowing the whistle on the whole thing- you're pretty sure a lost student should do the trick."Then we must call the proper Authorities!" She says, going for her phone. "I'll put a call in with secur-""Rose, Hana? Grab her." Miho says calmly and the two gunners, with little hesitation, step forward and grab Midoriko. You look over at Miho, who looks at the restrained girl. "Thank you for volunteering to come help us find our lost friend!" She says with a smile, before smiling over at you. "Let's go, Russells!"You blink, opening your mouth to say something. You close it and look at Richard and Roy, who are just as scared looking. Seeing Miho casually order the kidnapping of, granted, someone with very little official authority, but authority nonetheless... Yeah, you don't think it'd be a good idea for you to get on Miho's bad side. Ever. It's a short walk to the passage belowdecks from here, but Sono's repeated insistance that everything you're doing is against regulations mostly goes ignored. What do we do with her, anyway?>Keep her with Rose and Hana.>Have her come with you and Miho.>Send her with Roy and Akebi.
>>28031174>have her come with you and Miho.Never mess around with Nishizumis.
>>28031174>>Have her come with you and Miho.>Miho grows a spine and doesn't fuck around
>>28031174Tie her up and carry her over our should.*naggy girl acquired*
>>28031174>Have her come with you and Miho.Hana and Akebi are more familiar with the school ship than Miho or Russells, so it would make more sense to bring Sodoko with us.
>>28031174With Saiori, we need this time to chat with Miho alone about us and our feelings, after extended small talk and flirting. As we're making our way back, we should drop the confidence bomb that it was silly to think we should hide that we're seeing each other, and meet back up with the others ...man I feel lewd for this on a blue board... Hand in Hand
>>28031345This. As much as she is a bitch, she will be useful.
>>28031174All right! SODOKO was caught!New GuPDEX data will be added for SODOKO!Do you want to give a nickname to SODOKO?
>>28031375We should leave off the lewd. We have a Fluffy to find.
>>28031174*Midoriko Sono added to inventory*
>>28031422Kneesocks.If I catch another I'll name that one Scanty.
>>28031174>Have her come with you and Miho.Oh no, Miho is channeling Shiho
>>28031174>Have her come with usIn other news, Sheilas and Sentinels is still not ready, and probably wwon't be done for a couple days. I'd still like to have that discussion I asked about last thread though, because I don't know what people think beyond "I like it". Would really like questions, feedback, whatever. Makes me want to write and also tells me how I can be better.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27269790/#p27276111http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27710495/#p27717449http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27749631/#p27755632http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27834237/#p27839484http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27977013/#p27983370All the previous parts. I'm gonna put the word doc on a file sharer once I figure out how to do so.
>>28031467You say it like it's a bad thing.
PzKpfw. IV's front drive wheel best GUP
>>28031492no, 290mm is best GUP
>>28031492Obviously Sentinel-chan has the best drivewheel. German's running gear doesn't even compare to HVSS.
>>28031422>>28031433>>28031467Also, because I can no longer unsee it I have to share it: Everyone in that series has a freaky huge alien head.
>>28031492>>28031523>>28031526Dat. Fuckin. Ass.Don't you wish your Tonkfu was googly eyed like muh ELC.
>>28031573Dude, that's pretty much par for the course with anime.
>>28031573Like every other anime ever?
>>28031553Pulled from the web:The essential problem of the original Churchill AVRE was the range: 70-80 meters is simply not enough. Therefore, the British came with a stunning idea to create a huge recoilless gun and fit it into the AVRE turret – the goal was to fling as much explosives in one shot on as long a distance as possible, without destroying the shooting tank in the process, preferably without having to load it from the front.Of course, to fling such a shell so far, you need some serious charge. A LOT of gunpowder – much more than the gun would normally allow. The British engineers actually invented a pretty strange solution. In order to improve the gun recoilless effect, they did put a sort of “counterweight” behind the charge itself (a package of sand allegedly). When the gun shot, this charge was propelled violently to the back (away from the turret), compensating for the majority of recoil, bringing the amount of charge needed to more manageable quantitites. Needless to say, this was NOT a popular solution with the crew.Another problem was that if there was some infantry advancing behind the tank or – heaven forbid – taking cover behind the turret on the hull, having a bag of sand fly from the back of the turret followed by a recoilless gun blast was not exactly healthy for them. The blast was also very long, so the tank was probably more dangerous to the friendly infantry than to the enemy one. They tried to solve it by installing some sort of blast collector on the back of the turret (so the blast was directed upwards), but for some reason it didn’t work.
>>28031597>>28031604It's so exaggerated in GuP. The proportions in Uppotte are better.
exactly just how illegal are these monstrosities?
>>28031682Very. The Monster is open-topped.
>>28031682The Ratte and the Monster are, the rest are perfectly legal, if mostly useless.
>>28031584No matter how many different ways people try to draw ELC as a human, in my eyes she'll always be Oka.The fact that she's nearly cheating on me with my friends Tank is okay.
>>28031682An argument could be made for the Ratte, as there was steel invested in it.
>>28031682Ratte and Monster weren't completed by war's end--just prototypes, not even a workable chassis constructed. Ergo, not Senshado legal. Most everything else on that pic, though, is Senshado legal.
>>28031682If Speer shut you down you don't get to play with it. That shuts out a lot of toys.Being Speer is suffering.
>>28031727So are we just dumping upotte now?
>>28031756I'd be okay with a little gungirl posting
>>28031756I really should watch that show.
>>28031803Watch it, then read the manga if you don't want to be dissapointed.
>>28031803It starts out really bad and then gets okay.And this coming from a dude who cannot stop laughing when told what's in it.
>>28031816>>28031802>>28031767>>28031756Why are we not posting the better gun girls?
>>28031862Because airshit is for /toy/
>>28031803Plus the AK family are all catgirls.
>>28031862There's something great about this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_6LvKWy5vo
"So, guess we'll keep an eye on her then?" You say quietly to Miho as Sodoko is kept in place near the end of the group. She's mostly stopped complaining now, and seems resigned to the fact that she's going to help find Yukari- the fact that Hana has been encouraging her and complimenting her on how brave she is to come with them seems to be helping a lot, too.Miho nods, looking at you. "Neither of us know the ship as well as he- everyone else has somebody who grew up here with them." She says. "Midoriko has at least got a passing knowledge of how things work down there..." She's right- but you're still a bit disappointed. You were sort of looking forward to a bit of alone time with the Panzer IV's commander.Of course, as is generally the case with Japan, the entrance isn't locked allowing your group to descend down a fairly steep set of stairs until you reach the next level down- from the looks of things this is access level for the ship's sewers and utilities- it's another three or four levels down before you actually get to the storage levels where you originally found the M3 Lee.As you reach the intersection where the stairs meet the two intersecting hallways you'll be searching you finally call out. "Sono, you're with me and Miho!" You smile. "Neither of us know much about the ship, so we need a guide!""F-fine!" Midoriko says. "At least I can keep an eye on you!" With that the groups seperate down their own halls.>Search with your voice- yell for Yukari and see if she can hear you!>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.>Wander around off the main hallway, but stay close so you don't get lost!>Other.
>>28031961>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.No point getting ourselves lost, too.
>>28031961>Search with your voice- yell for Yukari and see if she can hear you!>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.Can't see why we can't do both...
>>28031961>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.>Search with your voice- yell for Yukari and see if she can hear you!
>>28031961>Search with your voice- yell for Yukari and see if she can hear you!>Wander around off the main hallway, but stay close so you don't get lost!gotta go where they hid the tanks! but we can still call out to her, right?
>>28031961>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.
>>28031934>>28031903>>28031894>>28031891>>28031862man FUCK you and fuck c3 I think I have ptsd because of that shit.
>>28032090Do you feel like a hero yet?
>>28032090I've heard the name of the show, but I thought it was just -Cute girls playing airsoft-There's something sinister here...To watch or not to watch?
>>28032122Watch it.Brace for psychosis.
>>28032120There's no way it out-FUBARs spec ops, right?Right?
>>28032122To be clear, this is -not- an inside joke from the c3 threads. It really does go spec ops the line-mode about ep6 IIRC
>>28032167It goes a bit over the top with the drama is all.
>>28032174Don't they reenact rambo going apeshit at one point?
That said, the soundtrack it breddy good.
>>28032224Fuck that ending.
>>28032122It is 'cute girls playing airsoft' at it's core, but it is cute girls playing airsoft' done by GAINAX.The show got to the point where I had to put off watching silver spoon until after C3 so I didn't watch suffering before bed.
Well I guess Sheilas is getting delayed by another day.
>>28032220First episode they do a Rambo Game where the wild girl has an M60 and the rest have pistols.
So NA players, is 8.9 already live there? Its already live on ASIA but i stuck in office until 5 more hours.Finally something to bear team Anteater name.
>>28031961>Just keep heading in a straight line and check every room along it.Be thorough, lad.
>>28032122It starts off as cute girls shooting cute things, then veers into 'what is friendship, I came here to win' and winds up back at 'oh this is why I played airsoft.'>>28032306>where the wild girl has an M60You have a spelling error there best is spelled B E S T, not W I L D.
>>28032430>You have a spelling error there best is spelled B E S T, not W I L D.The two terms are not mutually exclusive.
Of course, your first instinct is to just wander around looking for Yukari through all the side rooms and hatches, but the last thing you need is to get yourself lost as well. So you're going to stick with the plan- stay long the main corridor, search only adjacent rooms and hallways. Of course that won't give near enough coverage- "YUKARI!" You shout, cupping your hands to your mouth. "YUKARI!" You repeat, this time down a side hallway- the sound echoes down the steel hallways."You shouldn't shout so loud." Midoriko says, annoyed. "You might damage your hearing down here! She wouldn't be down that hallway anyway- it leads to sewage treatment..."You shrug. "So then where would she be?" Miho askes the stern looking girl. She grabs the map of the level from your hand. "If it's Miss Akiyama, she's looking for tanks, right?" You and Miho nod- Yukari's reputation precedes her. "Well, then we're going to want to head this way and take a left- that's where all the long-term storage is."You blink. "Long term storage?"Midoriko nods. "Anything that can't be easily brought to us- large replacement parts and equipment that is only rarely needed..." She explains."...Or lost tanks?" Miho says, completing the thought.>Stick with the plan, stay on this hallway.>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.>Other.
>>28032691>>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.>Suddenly, A wild Char B1 appears!>I'm on to your shit, jack.
>>28032691>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.It's hard to ignore the meta of 'Yukari isn't fucking here'
>>28032691>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.And even if we don't find tanks, maybe we'll acquire parts that can be used to upgrade Oarai's tanks?
>>28032691>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.Trust the Morals Officer.
>>28032691>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.>>28032738It really is, but even if she was down there, she'd be looking for tanks. Long-term storage is our best bet to find 'Yukari'.
>>28032760Oh hey, there's my post.
>>28032691>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG HERE
Instead of a Char B1 we find a Valentine.
>>28032691>>Follow Midoriko's advice- check the long-term storage areas.Even the Sodoclones can be useful now and then
>>28032924What about a valiant?
>>28032965I can't even joke about that.
>>28032965Much like encountering a gazebo.
>>28032924If its a Mark VIII Valentine it's not so bad. The 6pdr isn't a bad gun at all, especially if you can get APDS ammo for it.
>>28033022I actually rather like the Valentine. It's not spectacular, but it's a pretty solid tank.
>>28033263OZZIE OZZIE OZZIE!
>>28032986Better than getting Renault BS tho.It is SSD legal, right?
Well, you didn't get where you were today by following plans. "Right, let's head over there then." You say with a shrug, heading off down the corridor. "But if we get lost, we're eating you first." You say with a grin.Miho laughs a bit as Midoriko bristles. "Cannibalism is against the school regulations!"The storage areas are nearby, but only relative to the size of the ship itself- it's still takes nearly fifteen minutes before you begin seeing the large storage rooms- each one with a sliding door. "YUKARI!" You shout- with any luck she might be close enough to hear. But there's still no reply.You sigh and read off the labels outside each large door. Most are described with a cryptic series of letters and numbers, though a few are more descriptive.>"Tractors and equipment.">"Propeller Wash Reserves.">"Emergency rations."
>>28033354>"Tractors and equipment."This sounds promising.
>>28033354>"Emergency rations."Clearly this means tonks... Also, I might be hungry.
>>28033354>"Tractors and equipment."Let's check this first.As for >"Emergency rations." We find Anzu's secret snack storage appropriated through dubious means. Which is against school regulations!
>>28033354>"Tractors and equipment."Check this first before checking >"Emergency rations."
>>28033354>>"Tractors and equipment."
>>28033435>An entire room full from ceiling to floor with dried sweet potatoes. Jesus Christ how horrifying.
>>28033348Seeing as the Valiant had a habit of eating its driver, among other major flaws, I'd say no.
"Tractors and equipment..." You read out loud before turning back to look at Miho. "Yeah, if Yukari's going to be anywhere its in here..." You say confidently, sliding the door open. A strong, dusty smell eminates immediately from the storage room beyond- it's obvious this place hasn't been touched in years. But beneith everything is the unmistakable scent of engine great, oil and gasoline.You brush off the light switch next to the door and turn it on as Miho and Midoriko enter behind you- rows of flourescent lights flicker to life along the ceiling, revealing a large room, neatly filled with pallets, each with some manner of small vehical on it- golf carts, Bobcats, forklifts, and more. Each neatly wrapped in plastic to weather the years of storage. "Yukari?" You say, not quite as loud- the name echos across the large room anyway."I don't see any tanks..." Miho says. "I don't think Yukari would've stuck around without a reason..." She sighs disappointedly. You have to agree with her- if Yukari is down here somewhere looking for tanks she probably wouldn't stick around to look at ride-on lawnmowers.As you lean against the door, as disappointed as Miho, Midoriko let's out a yelp. You look over at her- she's opened a door nearly at the rear of the room. "T-that is not supposed to be there! It's against regulations!" She stammers. Miho moves through the smaller tractors towards the now open door and makes it there before you."How the..." She says, obviously flabbergasted. "How did they fit *THAT* back there?"
>>28033728Looks like we've found ourselves a Tiger people.

>>28033799Gee, you remember what happened in the anime, good for you.
>>28034075I fucking called in particular that we would go belowdecks to find Yukari, find what is implied to be a tank, and then Blackjack cliffhangers us.Although it's more like I gave him the idea
It's a TOG II*.
