It's lunch. And the idea of exposing your crew to the world is beginning to sound dumb. Especially as you look over at your radioman and driver, who are attempting to see who can fit more pieces of sushi into their mouth at the same time. You close your eyes, rub the bridge of your nose and shake your head slowly. Richard's girlfriend Saori seems to have the same sentiments.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you honestly wonder if this kind of behavior from your crew even crossed Anzu's mind when she offered you up to be interviewed. Granted, the interviewer is for a fairly inconsequencial English-language tank blog, but you're already having waking nightmare about how this could all go horrifically wrong."HAEN!" Patrick says, really being a noise more than than the number ten- despite yourself you'd been keeping count. Morbid curiosity is one of your weaknesses.>Find Anzu, we need to fix this before something bad happens.>Maybe we should go look for Yukari?>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.>Other.
>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.Well, just Pat and Rich. Rose wouldn't do anything stupid...would she?
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.They should know what's up.
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.srsly gaiz
>>28147088>Find Anzu, we need to fix this before something bad happens.She wants this to look good, she'll have to take the steps to do so. And this involves distracting Pat and Rich away from the venue.
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interviewalso might be a good idea to throw in some vague threats and maybe ask Saori to make sure at least Rich is on the level.
>>28147164I suggest we bribe them with more foodstuff.
Is daylight time moving the clocks back one hour or moving them forward?I'm part of an advanced tropical culture that doesn't use daylight savings so it always confuses me. I was expecting the thread to be an hour earlier than normal.>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.get them up to speed now. the fluffy one is on her own for now.TIME FOR TONKS!
>>28147189back.Also>I'm part of an advanced tropical culture>Oceania>advancedHa!
>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.>>28147113It's the rest of the crew we need to worry about, not Rose.Also, I'm gonna be the guy drawing the black jack crew so I'll post some drawings tonight under this trip.
>>28147189it's moving the clocks back in the fall and forward in the spring. some loonie thought that faking day light will be more energy saving, i don't think it works way way.
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.Guys, you are the most talented, professional senshado crew in existence, and I have no doubt you will live up to that reputation during the interview. And if you don't, I will stab you in the fucking face.
>>28147189>>28147224If Sentinelfag is an Aussie or Kiwi, then yes, they at least more advanced than us in SEA. Well, maybe excepting Singapore.
>>28147189Spring Forward, Fall Back, fuck up your entire sleep schedule for no good reason.
>>28147257That's not saying much, though~(ftr: all of this is in good fun, I'm just screwing around )
>>28147224I was being sarcastic.Queensland is the only state in Aus that doesn't use daylight savings. The Northern Territory is the other one but that's a territory not a state.Three quarters of the state is in the tropics so we don't get much variation between summer and winter. >>28147244So the clocks have been moved back one hour, right?Jesus fuck, I'm pretty sure we move our clocks backwards in spring here, at least in the states that use daylight. Fuck, everything is backwards and confusing.
>>28147269Basically. I hate this shit.
>>28147337Yeah, I figured, I was just givin' you shit. DST is weird, with the sleep schedule I keep (sleep from dawn-ish to noon), it plays merry hell with it.
>>28147337You were in southern hemisphere; when NA enjoy white Christmas you swim on beach for new year.....I really should made BlackJack skin for Pershing.
>>28147394no need for a skin, afaik, its just a plain OD Pershing.
>>28147426Still need to add that Grizzly bear, and option to sports that colorful color Anzu painted to BJ without Russel consent.
>>28147514You can put a grizzly bear logo on your tanks in WoT anyway.
>>28147571yep, but you have to pay gold for it...or a shitpile of credits.
Alright, should I continue Y/N?
>>28147982You have my attention.Y
>>28147982got more? i want to see them!
>>28147982Continue. Need to see the MC.
>>28147982Sir, you had my curiosity.Now you have my attention.
>>28147088>Have a sit down with your crew and brief them on what you expect of them for the interview.>>28147244>some loonie thought that faking day light will be more energy saving,It has nothing to do with energy savings, it helps control the daylight spread between the equinoxes so that you always work in the daylight.
>>28148068Here you go, Jack-o
>>28148073thus to cut down on the need for electric lights and the stress on the the power plants. i can't fault him for trying, but it still messes up my internal clock.
>>28148068First off, Stop tanking and post it already.Second,>>28147982Would you please go on...
>>28148253This is macro material
Alright, here is part two of I don't know. I'm kinda drawing these as I go.
>>28148253that's more amusing than it has any right to be
You take a deep breath as Patrick proudly shoves another piece of fish and rice into his mouth, showing no sign of choking- first aid training had been part of tanking basics back in the states, and though you have no idea why that training included the Heimlich Maneuver, you're wondering if you might use it today."Patrick?" You say, and he looks at you with the kind of pride in his eyes a dog who's brought back half a tree in his mouth has. You look over at Richard. "Richard." He stops halfway through shoving an eleventh piece of sushi in his mouth. You sigh. "Spit 'em out- we gotta talk."With a collossal effort, Patrick merely chews through the sushi and, over the course of about ten seconds, managing to swallow the entire mouthful. "And waste good food?" You stare at him with horror and amazement. "What's up, Cap'n?"Richard finishes his a few seconds later in much the same way- actually pretty impressive that they were both able to do that. "Interview, right?" He says.You stare at him, wondering how he'd heard about it already. "Yeah, listen- they're going to be interviewing all of us." You say gravely. "I need you guys to at the very least attempt to not look like idiots." You look at Patrick. "That means no boasting about your repertoir of fake fart noises." You look back to Richard. "And this isn't a dating interview video, either. I need both of you to be professional- keep your answers on topic and, well, you know how they say you should be yourself?""Yeah?" Patrick says, taking a swig of juice."Don't." You say. "Seriously- we need to look good so maybe we can get some press for the team.""Why?" Richard asks- actually not a bad question. "Why do we need good press?">"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out.">"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it.">other.
Also I cleaned up Roy a bit
>>28148253The D isn't silent, it's slurred into the J.
Wouldn't the girl's tank stank of pussy?
>>28148584>"No idea, but I can guarantee Anzu is going to screw with us if we mess this up."
>>28148584>"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."
>>28148584>"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it.">"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."these two in that order
>>28148584>"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."
>>28148584>>"No idea, but I can guarantee Anzu is going to screw with us if we mess this up."
>>28148584>"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."we mustn't show weakness in front of the boys. especially not towards Anzu. And I mean, really, if Anzu starts threatening us again, we can just threaten to leave Oorai again. No guarantee on how successful the bluff would be now, but it is certainly an option.
>>28148584>>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."also, I can't remember, do we know IC that the school's survival hinges on the tournament?
>>28148584>"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."Best reason.
>>28148584>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."both of these go together.
>>28148584>"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."I mean that's honestly why we care so
>>28148712We don't know about the survival bit but we do know the school is having financial difficulties.However, we don't know who ELSE knows.
>>28148584>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."But more importantly:>"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."
>>28148584>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"If we get noticed, maybe a donor will be willing to help us out."
>>28148613 you say like it's a bad thing.
>>28148790Yeah I just asked Jack himself.
>>28148584>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team.">"Because if we screw this up Anzu will find ways to make us regret it."Whoo
Speaking of Anzu, she'd probably love this...most of them would, actually. Deep fried yam-flavored ice cream.
>>28148584>"Oorai isn't exactly a hugely popular school- having fans will encourage the rest of the team."
>>28148863well, i prefure to deep fry smelts, but that's just me.
>>28149225He looks like a young frank west.
hey BJ, can we spend some training time with some of the other crews in the near future? Feels like we've been with the same few cast members for a while. just something to think about.
>>28149460yes, we need to get the WoT nerds on board soon. and hopefully not in that shitty tank.
>>28149540I didn't mean add more characters, just cultivate the ones we already have. ya dig?
>>28149572I believe >>28149540 mean Nekonyaa and co. Which is a WoT Nerd in this quest. Hmm, Maybe let them in I-Go for awhile, let them familiarize with driving tank before put them onChi-Nu.
>>28149540We've met but couldn't yet recruit them.
>>28149613yea, my bad. meant that we don't really need to add more characters to the team roster just yet.We have so many right now, and I feel like we are just focusing on a few of them. Like, I can't even remember the last time Mako was even even mentioned.
"Because if we screw this up, or if she even believes we've screwed this up, Anzu is going to make us miserable for the forseeable future." You say, staring at your driver and radioman gravely. "She will find thing- things we've never even considered- and she will make us absolutely miserable.""So, we've-" Richard starts, leaning back and throwing a glance at his girlfriend."No." You state, cutting him off. "No... So far Anzu has been playing with us, testing us and genuinely thinking she's helping us..." You say, drilling into his face with your eyes. "Anzu hasn't even been trying. Right Saori?" You say, looking at the girl next to Richard.She nods. "Anzu is very creative..." She says. "She gets what she wants by any means, and if she doesn't..." She lets the statement hang like the Sword of Damoclese over their heads... Sorry, World Literature earlier this morning. "You really don't want to be on her bad side..." Saori says, looking a bit worried.You look back to your crewmen. "So, you're going to be on your best behavior today- no rambling, no bragging about how many pieces of food you can fit in your mouth... Just stick to the topic on hand and give him answers and it'll be done with and you guys can go back to..." You look at the plate full of sushi on the table between them."Fine- we'll try." Patrick says, "Anzu scares me enough as it is..."Well, that was easy. You hope.>Find the automotive club- have they found your tank yet?>Find Anzu- you need to know what this interview's going to be about.>Look for the morals committee- have they seen Yukari yet?>Other.
>>28149392He's covered wars you know.
>>28149674>Look for the morals committee- have they seen Yukari yet?Seriously, where is she?
>>28149674>Find Anzu- you need to know what this interview's going to be about.
>>28149674>>Look for the morals committee- have they seen Yukari yet?
>>28149674>Find the automotive club- have they found your tank yet?
>>28149674>Find Anzu- you need to know what this interview's going to be about.Time to study for the interview.Maybe hatch a plan.
>>28149674>>Find the automotive club- have they found your tank yet?dem brown girls.
>>28149716Currently being tortured for information in a secret Saunders prison.
>>28149674>Otherdivide and conquer. let's ask Saori to call/text for Yukari, and if need be ask the morals committee if they've seen her. we need to see Anzu about the interview. the automotive club and the tank can wait until after the interview.
I gotta say, LGA has demonstrated just how shitty this quest truly is.
>>28149781I've been meaning to check it out, how is it better?
>>28149674>Find Anzu- you need to know what this interview's going to be about.It pays to at least prepare ahead to avoid potential embarrassments.
>>28149815"Better" is pure opinion, but it inarguably moves faster.
>>28149781The only thing bad from this quest is BJ posting pace.>>28149815The pace is WAY faster. More interaction with other character and more option.Though basic premise is same - your academy ship is getting closed and you need to save it.
>>28149225Okay something came up and I'm gonna have to quit for the night. Gonna work on actual portraits between now and the next thread, though.
>>28149781Honestly not a fan of LGA. Maybe it's the writing style.
>>28149895Good night you sweet, beautiful motherfucker.
>>28149674>Find the automotive club- have they found your tank yet?>Look for the morals committee- have they seen Yukari yet?thentry calling the fluffy one and see if she picks up.
>>28149781>>28149815>>28149846>>28149865>>28149908Eh, they've each got their good points. If BJ could even halve his posting time, though...
>>28149815To quantify the post rate differences, GermanSchteel does roughly a post every 10 minutes, compared to BJ's 50-70 minutes.I really am enjoying both of them quite a bit though. LGA taking place on a new ship after the events of the show, which really opens up a big pile of options, even if the past thread was the /u/-boat shipyard.
>>28150065but but...Kitten is Trude's sunshine :(
>>28150065You say that as if there is even the slightest chance in hell that /tg/ would play a straight female protagonist.
>>28150065Alright, can we clear this up for good: Are LGA and GuPQ related beyond being based on the same show?
>>28150140As far as I know, no.
>>28150126Hey, It's happened before.Like once that I can remember.
>>28150126We might. But not in a girls' school.
>>28149760Psh- Torture is illegal on Saunders....They probably flew her to Pravda where torture *is* legal.
>>28150126I honestly think we do have a chance. a small one but it's there. at least Trude doesn't fully flag the yuri colors
>>28150101I forgot to mention that.The man tries his darnest to give his readers a heart attack at the end of each day.Between that one and the Rocketeer one, god damn.>>28150126I know that much, and that he said he would keep the sexuality of each character as vague as possible. Either way, I don't really see a romantic involvement being a big part of the quest, but it is too early to tell I suppose.>>28150140Not really. The MC in LGA actually made a joke about guys doing shensado, and it was the funniest thing ever to another student. Chances are high that dudes in tanks aren't common in the slightest in his version of the universe.
>>28150207>The man tries his darnest to give his readers a heart attack at the end of each day.He does a good job. Either that or I'm a hopeless sap. Probably the latter.
>>28150165I would be okay with it if it was more subtle, but there's no chance in hell of that.>>28150207>constant groping>incessant "naw bruh, I'm TOTALLY not a lesbian" jokesI like the quest, but despite what Polish Bronze says, it's far from vague.
Frankly, i am fine with donning my yuri goggles when reading LGA quest. Besides, half of anons following LGA quest seems actively supporting girls on girls 'skinship'And i read somewhere girls do more affectionate to each other. Maybe.
>>28150248Actually wondering if GermanSteel is the same guy I talk to a few months back about wanting to do his own GuP-flavored Quest.Asked if it was okay, which he really didn't have to- seemed like a nice guy though I haven't gotten around to catching up on LGA.
>>28150344It's good, but it's a completely different style. Characters seem to be more of the "man, I really wish I acted like this back in highschool" sort than actual sixteen-year-olds though. Probably the same dude you talked to.
>>28150222It hits me far harder than it should, too.I don't really mind the /u/boating that much though, mainly because Kitten is a great character.I honestly completely forgot about War Thunder until I started reading the quest over the weekend. It is pretty damn awesome.
>>28150552>WT tanks when
>>28150633Can't wait to eat all of those delicious panzers up with my shiny new B-25~
>>28150686Are AA tanks confirmed?Gonna play the shit out of them if so.
You've got way too much to do- it's time to deligate. "Hey Saori, you got the Auto Clubs numbers?" You ask the red-head across from you while she attempts to clean a piece of rice off her boyfriends cheek."Of course!" She says smiling and holding up her phone. "I've got everyone in the club and then some!" She flips it open and prepares to text rapidly. "Who needs to know something?" She says with a smile- Saori was to rapid communication what Rose was to gunnery- some sort of force of nature."Can you see if you can get ahold of Yukari?" You ask- she hadn't answered any texts from earlier, but it wouldn't hurt to keep trying. "I'm still worried about that girl..." You say, standing up. You've actually got something else to attend to- the Automotive Club. "Also, Saori, try to coach these two on what they should and shouldn't say during the interview." With her influence on Richard, she might actually be able to get a decent interview out of those two.You hope.The Automotive Club is where they always are- the hanger. In this case eating lunch on top of the Lee. "Hey!" Suzuki, the tanned and generally least surley of the club waves down at you. "We found it!" She says- "It's huge!"Nakajima repositions herself on top of the tank to be able to look at you. "Was right where you said it was, Commander." She says, nodding with approval.>"So, how long until you can get it out?">"Any idea what it is?">Other.
>>2815069690% sure they have said that all trees will receive some sort of AA vehicles. Just won't be any in either tree at release
>>28150707>"Any idea what it is?"
>>28150707>"Any idea what it is?"also wait what with the texting and the
>>28150707"I'm about to go bother Anzu in a little bit, how many deckhands do you want to help you move it?"
>>28150707>>"So, how long until you can get it out?">>"Any idea what it is?"Both. Former before the latter.
>>28150707>>"Any idea what it is?"Hope they love their gift.
>>28150707>"So, how long until you can get it out?"I doubt they're gonna make it for the Saunders match.Also, "I told you so."
>>28150552Kitten is awesome.
>>28150696Gonna be a lot of halftracks running around if they are.The only countries who really went in for Armoured SPAAGs were England, Germany, Finland and Hungary. And the English ones were kinda crap.Other than that I know Russia had some prototypes that never saw action, and Canada made one which did some combat trials in Normandy.
>>28150686I'm still working my way through the tutorials all while hoping I didn't make a horrible mistake by picking Germany over 'merica or something.>>28150763Best-girl material.>>28150707>"Any idea what it is?"
>>28150707>>"Any idea what it is?"
>>28150763Can't wait to see the veterans back on action.Aside of Bolter and... Witmann? Have we actually meet other vets?
>>28150774>GermanyEnjoy using crappy Italian planes--at least until you hit the Folgore--it's a good way to ease yourself into the Me-109 line. Also, don't underestimate the Stukas.
>Thinking Nazis are coolStay retarded /tg/
>>28150810Met Knispel, she was the slightly bitchy secretary when we kinda dumbly went to look for a tank in the upper structure.
>>28150774It's not like you're locked to any one nation.
>>28150826But they ARE cool. They inflicted a wholly disproportionate amount of anal wreckage on the Bolsheviks in comparison to their size. How could that NOT be cool?
>>28150815The He-112 isn't bad. It's a decent early cannon platform.Avoid Heavy Fighters like the 110 line until you're better at the game, though. Those things hit hard, but are a cock to fly.Once you hit the 109s, you're laughing.
>>28150827Well, considering what we know after meeting Witmann, she being slightly bitchy is more understandable now.
>>28150870Because racism, militarism, anti-semitism, and all the other fucked up stuff they did.Plus there is evidence to support that Hitler raped his niece and then had her killed by the gestapo and made it look like a suicide. Also, don't start wars you can't win is basically the moral of German imperialism.
>>28150826>implying they weren't far cooler than the russians
>>28150917>Plus there is evidence to support that Hitler raped his niece and then had her killed by the gestapo and made it look like a suicide.Hadn't heard that one before. Huh.
>>28150917And the Red army Raped Every woman in Poland and East Germany and killed most of their husbands.You don't want to get into a contest of "Who committed the worst warcrimes" with the Russians.
>>28150897Very true, personally I think it is because Schteel does the characters rather well, they all act real.
>>28150917>Because racism, militarism, anti-semitism, and all the other fucked up stuff they did.Which were also present in enormous quantities in the USSR, and to a lesser extent, the Allies as a whole.I'm not going to argue that Hitler wasn't a tremendously evil little bastard, but he was hardly the only evil little bastard in Europe at the time.>Also, don't start wars you can't win is basically the moral of German imperialism.Bismarck would like a word with you.
>>28150964>The Wehrmacht didn't rape Jump to the "Mass Rape" section
>>28151012Doesn't stop the Russians being world champions at it.Hell, the Allies are probably guilty of it too.
>>28150964>>28151012Sorry forgot my link, pal!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_crimes_of_the_WehrmachtDaily reminder, this is the army that you base your little role play around.
>>28151024actually there were a fair number of cases of GI's raping recovered comfort women in the Pacific Theatre.
>>28151028Wait, what?The MC of this is american.
>>28150552>>28150065Wait, LGA has u-boats in it?Fuck yes, count me in.
>>28151012Oh, they did, as did most of the WW2 armies, but the USSR tacitly approved of it. The Wehrmacht was far from a legion of angels, but the slavs were movie-villain levels of evil.
>>28151028>Daily reminder, these are the armies that won the warhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allied_war_crimes_during_World_War_II
Jeezus, when did the butthurt brigade arrive?Also, might get into WT once tanks arrive. Thinking of getting the Germans, they were overengineered and broke down frequently, but fuck me if they didn't have some cool tanks.
>>28151028>Daily reminder, this is the army that you base your little role play around.I never realize GuP quest is based on wehrmacht. And LGA Quest is taking place on AMERICA ship.
>>28151059They have planes, don't remember u-boats being mentioned though.
>>28151059Not U-Boats, dude. /u/-boats.
>>28151068But nowhere did I defend the allies. Also, I didn't start a roleplay around them either. So what you just posted was entirely pointless. CongratsAlso, the undercurrent of pedophiliac tone in this role play is really disturbing.
>>28151028Man, fuck off. Nobody came out of World War II smelling of roses and sunshine. Besides that, most of us simply like the equipment they had. Are you seriously trying to prove that the Third Reich was an evil, horrible dictatorship responsible for millions of deaths? Wow, stop the fucking presses! Nazis are bad! Holy shit!
>>28150248I like to keep the Yuri goggles off for as long as I can. and so far he has been a little vague at least for Trude as for the rest. Yeah, not so much
>>28151108Isn't that specifically pre-pubescents?AFAIK all the characters in this are high-school aged.
>>28151108>Japanese students>American crew>MC is one of said AmericansThis just in guys!The Wehrmacht was made of Japs and yanks!
>>28151108>pedophiliacweird way to say 'tankophile'
>>28151108What boat did you just get off? /srs/ or the good ole S.S. Troll?
>>28151111Trudy and Kitten just might have some platonic sibling thing going on, but Anna is deep into dyke territory already.
>>28151131It is. At absolute worst, the quest could be accused of ephebophilia.
If you're going to troll you could at least try, sheesh.
Well this went downhill fast.
>>28151197Eh, business as usual in WAITING FOR BLACKJACK-land.
Is there a Hungarian themed school?
>>28151235I think so.
>>28151144Yeah, I get the sibling feeling too or maybe a doting parent considering we're always worried about Kittain's social interaction.i just thought anna was the sterotypical touchy feely designer girl? I feel the girl we pissed off who helped us with the irish bitches was a little yuri
>>28151271Bolter? Yeah, I got that vibe as well.I'm expecting full-on suffering quest once we get to her backstory. I also have a feeling some shit went down for Trudy and Kitten in middle school that might surface down the road.
>>28151403I really think he might be off of his meds right now.
>>28151252Excuse me, but your argument is Invalid because Pershing.
>>28151389Yes, let the but thirst flow through you.
Well that sure just happened.
Aaaand Sodoko arrive.

>>28151443why isn't she holding a sword?
"So, figure out what it is, then?" You ask, climbing up the side of the Lee and taking a seat against the turret. "It was German, right?" You say, eyeing their spread of food- you'd neglected to grab anything at the cafeteria."Definately German..." Hoshino, the tall stern mechanic who never seemed to have the top part of her overall's up, says as she grabs a half of a sandwich and takes a bite. "Past that... we've never seen anything like it before.""It's engine is crazy!" Tsuchiya says. "It's got two diesel engines driving generators- it's like a train's engine!" She's the engine expert and you've rarely seen more than her legs sticking out from some tank's engine compartment. "Really complex stuff. Typical German engineering..." You sigh, you'd hoped that it'd be something relatively easy for them to get running- maybe even have it time for Saunders. "It's using an 88mm though, right?"Nakajima nods, finishing a cup of noodles. "Yeah- looks like a Tiger's turret. Maybe it's some sort of prototype like the Excelsior?" She sighs. "Either way, it's going to be a while until we can get it up and running.">"How long?">"Can you guys get it done by Saunders?">Other.
>>28151515Where the hell would she keep one in that tiny ass turret.>>28151520>"Can you get it done by Saunders?"
>>28151515She doesn't need a sword... Hatred is her sword.
>>28151520>>"How long?"But make it sound polite, at least.Also based Tiger P.
Sometimes i wondered if on GuP universe exist 'replica' tanks for tankery.You know, like some corporation got their hand on blueprints and decided to recreate it...
>>28151594Yes. Not all of the tanks that are used in senshado are 50-60 year old museum pieces, reproductions are allowed.
>>28151520>"How long?">>28151594We know that replacement parts exist, but nothing about full tanks
>>28151520>>"How long?"It's more important that the tank is assembled correctly than if it is assembled quickly.
>>28151654Not to mention they still need to learn how to tank
>>28151594??I'm pretty sure there'd be ONE company out there that makes tanks for the purpose of tankery. Someone makes all the ammo, right?
>>28151520>"How long?"I mean I know we'll get it when we get it, but we're going to have other stuff piled up on you after Saunders.
>>28151520>>"How long?">Other.Roy's our other resident tank expert isn't he? Besides the fact that we're preparing for the interview right now, why not have him take a look at this beast later?
>>28151676Ammo, spare parts.What about whole tanks? Since at least on this quest seems that thing is non existent. Miho mentioned how Kuromorimine hunting for any Tiger II they can find, and even try to reconstructed the wreckage they can find. If a whole tank replica do produced, surely Kuromorimine can just buy it fresh from factory.Not sure how is it on GuP canon or in LGA quest.
>>28151750Maybe they only manufacture the more commonplace tanks and the weird prototype tanks are more or less unheard of and never get to be produced in large quantities.
>>28151750Maybe it's just a matter of costs? Full reproductions could be several factors more expensive than just getting surplus tanks up to snuff--especially for larger or late-war tanks. On top of this, reproduction build quality could be anywhere from milspec to shoddy, based on quality of materials, whether or not the accurate machining tools are used, and other factors.
>>28151750It's a mixed bag, actually.Certain tanks are more easily replicated- less technically complex tanks like the Sherman and T-34 are widely available since they were manufactured so widely, however heavier or more complex tanks are prohibitively expensive to recreate. (More advanced German tanks tend to be rare for this reason- even having a Tiger or Panther is something of a status-symbol for a team- having a Tiger II is almost unheard of...)
>>28151750I think its just 'whatever the guys in charge say'.
>>28151820Not to mention the plans and blueprints for a lot of tanks were often lost when factories or archives were bombed during the war- another reason American Shermans are common enough for Saunders to run literally dozens of them is that they're incredibly well documented so it's relatively easy to make good reproductions of them.
>>28151796>>28151808>>28151820Hmm. That make sense.>>28151855Well, if some Belarussian gaming company can get access to some blueprints, i can't imagine why other can't. Though like you have pointed before, the production cost might not really worth it.
>>28151906Yeah. I mean imagine something that takes as much effort and factory space to manufacture as an entire dedicated nascar vehicle... And high school sports teams want twelve of them.
>>28151906I always thought Wargaming was out of Ukraine. Shows how much I've been paying attention.
>>28151930A bit shame really. This mean we can't see mini-tiger on GuP.>>28151931And it shows how lifeless i am to keep following news about WG.
>>28151930That brings up another interesting point. Factories that *do* make reproductions probably have a sizable backlog--and who knows how long it takes to manufacture one tank from a single factory.
>>28152025Yeah, there may be high demand but not enough to justify all the factory space the likes of which were used in wartime
>>28152025Tigers required thousands of man hours. M4 Shermans only dozens. Infer from there.
>>28152025>mfw that churchill 7 and those matildas are hauling ass. I wish mine did that :(
>>28152025Man, how are they getting Matildas and a Churchill VII going that fast?
>>28152110Sheer manic balls.
>>28152110Hack.Oh how often i see some newb/noob raging on forum for supposed 'hack' on game. Not id hack, hack like noclip and such.
>>28152110Tea. Tea. and miracles.
>>28152138They have a bunch of Chavs driving?

"Define 'a while'?" You ask Nakajima. "Days? Weeks?" You really don't want to rush them- they've already got their hands full maintaining the team's tanks as it is.She looks back at the last member of the Auto Club- Tsuchiya, one of the few girls at Oorai to already have a car, mainly because having one was almost useless on such a small space- you could generally walk or, at worst, ride a bike wherever you needed to go. "Well- considering we'll have to re-disassemble it and get it back up here piece by piece..." She shrugs. "Probably about a month before we even start getting it back together. And then you have to take into account our maintainance work for the rest of the tanks..." You get the picture and it's a bit disappointing. "What if I could get the rest of the team to help?" You offer. "Maybe if there were more people.""It's not a matter of manpower," Nakajima adds. "It's a matter of throughput- we can only disassemble it so quickly, not to mention there's only really enough room to get a single cart going back and forth to carry the stuff." She takes another bite of sandwich. "The Automotive Club of old had dozens of members to take that thing apart and, just like Miho said, they probably brought it down there over a few months..." She shakes her head. "It'll be done when it's done, but it's way too early to tell you how long that'll be. Either way though..." She glances back at the rest of the crew before looking back to you. "Thanks- that tank means a hell of a lot to us, both for the team and for the history of our Club." She nods at you. "We'll get it done and we'll make it worth your wait.">Find Anzu, talk about interview.>Maybe we should get some food?>Check in with Saori- has Yukari gotten a hold of her yet?>Other.
>>28152349>>Find Anzu, talk about interview.>>Maybe we should get some food?
>>28152349>>Find Anzu, talk about interview.Steal Anzu's food, she always has some.
>>28152370Hell, why not
>>28152349We're still going? I was expecting a NEXT TIME right about now.Bloody daylight savings.>Maybe we should get some food?and then after/during obtaining of sustenance>Find Anzu, talk about interview.
>>28152349>>Find Anzu, talk about interview.We should start by going over a list of questions the interviewer will ask us--or at least is likely to ask us. Unless, of course, this interview is totally impromptu.
>>28152370This. And if we bring our own, she'll probably steal a piece.But in both instances, there's a chance of Russells getting an indirect kiss...
>>28152390surprised tank is surprised.
>>28152406Is it just me or are there a bunch of Anzufags who hang around at the fringes?They're not overt, but I feel like they're there.
>>28152406If Anzu willed it, every piece of food the MC put in his mouth since getting on the carrier had Anzu's indirect kisses on them.
>>28152474It's not just you. I feel them too. They lurk...

>>28152560But it was both the most hilarious and glorious at the same time. It was then that these threads felt the most alive.
>>28152708Well, yeah. The easiest way to get someone to speak up is to get them angry, and nothing gets a guy angry quite like some smug little cunt painting your multi-ton war machine in the gayest shade of blue she could find.
>>28152740Precisely! Just look at that smarmy little bint with her equally awful Commie subtitle!
>>28152759After all that tension, she and Russels probably both had intensely sexual and deeply troubling dreams about one another. At least, that's how it was for me when I was 16 and this specific girl was always pissing me off.
>>28152815Speaking of weird and troubling shit, did anyone save that yandere/double murder thing from forever ago with Russells and Miho?
>>28152849It did only garner a couple of replies. I've had posts with just a vote and a snappy remark get more.Still I'm delighted somebody actually remembers it!
>>28152935Seconding repost, I thought it was well written.
You need to find Anzu, that much you know. Of course when she'd told you about the interview earlier she'd given almost nothing in the way of details- you need to find out more about what she wants out of the interview and why she's doing it. But, as you crawl down off the top of the Lee, you hear your stomach protest- you didn't eat breakfast this morning. Your stomach was still upset after the destruction wrought on it by yourn grandfather's chili.You look at your watch- another thirty minutes of lunch. Plenty of time to grab a bite before you go off to face the Class President and her entourage. So you head back towards the cafeteria, contemplating just what items would probably be least likely to cause your upper digestic system to go into open rebellion- noodles are supposed to be pretty tame, right?As you're about to enter, your name is called over the din of the crowd. "Russells!"You turn around and see the fluffiest tank loader pushing towards you. "Yukari?" You say. "WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU-""No time, Russells!" Yukari says, panting and out of breath. "Where's Miho. Have information. Video needs editing."Well, there goes lunch.

>Last time on Sheilas and Sentinelshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28075098/#p28081192- - - - - ->Aly turned and quickly sighted in with her binoculars. She had no trouble finding the rather large flock of seagulls taking off from the trees ahead of them. "Shouldn't have opened my damned mouth.">And then the first crusader burst from the treeline.Alysha ducked into her tank immediately, closing the hatch. She grabbed her handset and started yelling. "Take them down now! Don't let them get into range!" Into the tank, she cried, "Get this bitch into gear! I want those tanks dead NOW!"No one wasted any time on replying as Sarah readied a round and Ellie aimed the gun. "Firing!" The breech blasted back with a deafening WHUMP, and the gunner-loader pair was moving as soon as the breech was back in position. Alysha looked through her cupola vision block to confirm the shot. The shot sailed over the oncoming crusader and landed where it had been a moment before. As she watched, another two burst from the trees."Gunner, adjust for lead!""Roger!""Up!""Firing!" Another shell left the barrel and thudded into the face of the turret of the lead crusader, just as two other shells impacted the tank. One of its tracks was torn off, and the crusader spun out of control, ripping up grass and dirt and ending up on its side."Ouch," Alysha muttered to herself, hoping the occupants hadn't been seriously harmed. "Gunner, fire at will!""Up!""Firing!"Again, the seventeen pounder spoke. The shell hit the dirt to the left of its target, sending chunks of turf flying. "Miss!" Alysha called into the tank. "Adjust left two degrees!"
>>28153276A sudden flash in the distant treeline caught Aly's eye, and her instincts reacted before she could."Brace!" she screamed as a shell smashed into the sentinel to her right. The tank stopped firing, and a white flag signalled its demise. And then the fear set in."Retreat, retreat, retreat!" she screamed, both to her driver and her headset. The tank shifted backwards, rolling into cover behind the hill. The other remaining sentinel soon followed. They were hidden from the approaching tanks, but so were the approaching tanks hidden from them. Without eyes on the enemy, Aly had no idea what they would do. They were outflanked, outnumbered and, Aly realised, completely outsmarted.Aly quickly grabbed her map and did some very quick mental exercises. The two remaining cruisers were moving west across the field towards her hill, with a sentinel covering them from the tree line to the east. There was an open gap to the south, but it only -seemed- open. Taking into account the last known position of the matildas and the Churchill, they would be moving into position at the southern end of the clearing in less than a minute, no doubt waiting to catch Aly and her team as they tried to flee south. Alysha's team were pinned behind a hill in the top right corner of the playing field, with enemies to the east and south. They were trapped. Unless... Aly did some quick thinking. The traverse rate of a sentinel's turret is twenty degrees per second. So if they came from an unexpected direction, the time it would take for the sentinel to aim at them would be... Aly snapped her fingers. Perfect! She was still holding the radio, so she lifted it to her mouth and spoke."Who's left with us?""Danni's tank," came the reply.Aly sighed in relief. "Good," she said. "Here's the plan..."
>>28153286Matsumoto Miko glared through her commander's periscope. The Australians had hidden themselves behind the hill and hadn't come out yet. They must have realised they were trapped. It didn't matter in the end, but Miko had wanted them to fall into her trap.Her radio blared. "Infantry tank team is in position! Over!""Received," Miko replied. "Do you have eyes on the Australians, over?""Negative, commander! Over!""Received. Remain in your position. Cruiser team, report."A different voice replied. "Cruisers are moving steady, commander. ETA to target is thirty seconds. Over!""Received. Out." Miko returned her eyes to her periscope. The Australians still hadn't shown themselves. Were they waiting for the cruisers to come over the rise so they could shoot the weakly armoured bellies? The cruisers weren't even going to scale the hill until the other tanks had moved up, so-A shot from the right sailed into the lead crusader, instantly killing it. The second crusader stopped and then began turning to face the sudden threat from the north."Break break break!" someone yelled. "Sentinels spotted to the north! T-" The rest of the signal was cut off as a round slammed into the second crusader. Miko had already turned her periscope north before this happened, however, and as the crusader me its simulated demise, she spotted the pair peeking out from the northern side of the hill. "Gunner, target north, at the base of the hill!" Dammit, if only she had been watching her sectors properly, they wouldn't have-The Australian's seventeen pounder turned and aimed at her tank."DRIVER, FULL RIGHT! FULL RIGHT! FULL RIGHT!"-Clang!-
>>28153298"Good hit!" Alysha said as she patted Ellie on top of her head. She grabbed her radio and called, "Their cover's dead! Go go go!" She didn't need to say it twice as Vin shifted the tank into gear and floored it. Hundreds of metres south, beyond the 'burning' wrecks of crusaders, the Matilda and Churchill tanks opened fire. But as a two hundred metre shot at a moving target through smoke and flames, they predictably missed. The tanks burned across the clearing and into the trees, leaving the wrecks of four tanks behind them.- - - - - -Forgot to fucking number them again fucking christAny questions or comments that you have, fire away.
