"So why are all of you in my council room?" Anzu says, tapping impatiently on the large table. Miho and Yukari mostly just ignore her as they go over her footage. "Seriously... Guys... There isn't anywhere else you could be doing this?" Anzu continues, looking for help from Momo or Yuuzu. She's actually right, there are plenty of places you could've gone to go over the information that Yukari had brought back from her mission to Saunder's University Highschool.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you'd be lying if you said that coming here hadn't had anything to do with annoying your constant annoyer. To drive this point home, you reach over and grab a handful of dried sweet-potato chips from her bowl and start munching- you still haven't eaten lunch. "...The hell is that thing?" You say, looking at the low, squat and heavily armored tank sitting in Saunder's Garage."A T28..." Yukari says, a hint of awe in her voice. "That's a 105mm cannon- it was designed to break through Germany's defensive lines and destroy bunkers. It's really slow though, and Kay says the engine and transmission are giving them problems so they're going to save it until they go against a team with a lot of heavy tanks on it...">"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?">"You're absolutely sure we won't see that monster?">"Yukari, thank you. But never pull something like this again...">Other.
>>28184758>"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?"
>>28184758>>"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?"
>>28184758>>"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?"M36 where
>>28184986>>28184983>>28184970>>28184828Glad to see we agree.
>LGAq, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.q, TW89q, and GuPq all in the same nightHoly fucking shitballs my body is ready
>>28184758>>"You're absolutely sure we won't see that monster?"High-Velocity 105mm is no joke, fellas. I have a special image saved for when we see Pravda's KV-2.
>>28185360You mean the one that took nothing out and got wiped by the IV and Stug?
>>28185407Not the right thread but thank you all the same.
>>28185401KV-2 is suffering
>>28185429>>28185430Yep my bad.
>>28185401Yes. Yes I do.
>>28184758>"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?"Or may use against us.>Other.By the way, looking good.
>>28185401I knew it'd never hit anything as soon as I saw it, because then it'd actually knock out one of the MC tanks.
>>28185109Same here, although I have to play catch up because timezones.
>"Do they have anything except Shermans that they'll be using against us?">"You're absolutely sure we won't see that monster?"
>>28185109Truly it is a good day to be a tankfag.
>>28185708POS Didn't include my third line...>"Yukari, thank you. But never pull something like this again..."
>>28184758>"Nothing but shermans, then?">"And could you tell us next time you do something like this? We were worried sick."
I'd say to hug the fluffy one too or something, but that would probably make Miho go yandere on us.
>>28185360You mean the World's Slowest Breadbox?
>>28185858I'd be ok with that
>>28185858No Russels, it's okay. I don't mind.
"So, assuming that..." You struggle to come up with a word to describe the T-28 Super Heavy Tank and fail. "...thing doesn't get used against us, are they going to be using anything but Shermans against us?" You'd be suprised if there were- the Sherman for all the crap it caught in WWII, for its lack of armor and usually-underpowered guns, was an excellent all-around tank that could adapt to almost any situation."No- she's going to be using only Sherman varients against us." Yukari says, with a nod. "Though they're going to use Easy-8s."Well crap. The M4A3E8 had been a late-war development of the Sherman, with an improved HVSS suspension, improved armor and, most importantly, the M1A2 76mm cannon. It had been deployed along with the Pershing in Korea and had been the basis of many post-War Sherman designs exported to NATO-aligned countries around the world. Miho bites her lip. "Those are going to be almost as bad as the Firefly..." She says as she points one out in the background of Yukari's video. "Those were nasty for us when Kuromuromine went up against them last year.">"How are they deploying the E8s?">We can figure this stuff out tonight- I still haven't eaten.>Other.
>>28185983>"How are they deploying the E8s?"
>>28185983>We can figure this stuff out tonight- I still haven't eaten.An army marches on its stomach.
>>28185983>>We can figure this stuff out tonight- I still haven't eaten.Let's have a lunch while talking about this with the girls--or if we're doing all the talking later, we should call Grampa to get started on another pot of chili.
>>28185983>>"How are they deploying the E8s?">We can figure this stuff out tonight- I still haven't eaten.Grab Anzu and eat her, the shrimp.
>>28186051There's probably plenty left over.
>>28185983>"How are they deploying the E8s?"You know, aside from on tracks. Or with ammo.>We can figure this stuff out tonight- I still haven't eaten.We wouldn't be Grandpa's grandson if we didn't get two ladies over our place within a day of getting one over.
>>28186070>Grab Anzu and eat her, the shrimp.Oh Russels...
>>28186385srsly, she's bite-sized.
>>28186385Flat on both sides.But I'm okay with that.

>>28186881Wait what?When the fuck did this happen?
"So... they've got Easy 8s- did they say how they're going to be deploying them?" You say, continuing the watch the video. Anzu swats at your hand as you grab another handful of sweet potato chips but it doesn't deter you.Yukari nods. "Yes- it was one of the last things I managed to find out." She fast forwards the video a bit further. "They're going to keep them with the Firefly."Miho nods grimly. "Good move- concentrates their most potent firepower and protects their key asset." "Works cut out for me, then..." You say. "If the Firefly can shoot us, that means we're dealing with the rest of their big guns as well-" You shake your head. "Going to need to break that group up- if we can isolate the Firefly and get it into the open I can take it out." That still leaves the rest of the Easy 8s though- while they might not have the raw penetration of the Firefly they still have every chance to take you out, especially if you get caught by more than one of them."So they'll probably try to keep the entire pack in a central location..." Miho says, closing the video and opening the map to study. "Need a good defilade position, good line of sight- the more the Firefly moves, the more vulnerable it becomes..." She smiles. She's got a plan.>"So, hash out a plan tonight?">"So, now that you've figured out a plan, can I go eat now?">Other.
>>28186976Just abit over two hours ago?His thread gone AWOL and when i check his twitter he said he got banned for 'evading ban'. 3 days ban, so yeah...
>>28186976Right about the end. He archived with "We have run ins with Hall Monitors, get lost and find a new tank, and get banned from 4chan." after dropping off with nothing.
>>28186995>Other.Want to get something to eat as we talk about it?
>>28187022That's some bullshit right there. Mods are fags.
>>28186995>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"And ask them if they want eat together>library giesndeNo captcha, library is place for reading, not eating.
>>28186995>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"More alone time doing things we like doing with Miho perhaps?>"Lunch beckons"
>>28186995>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"Over dinner with the girls.
I could probably get him unbanned, would need a way to contact him, though.
>>28187072Namely planning tactical assaults and defenses with full terrain maps and accurate enemy troop counts.
>>28186995>>"So, now that you've figured out a plan, can I go eat now?"
>>28187016>>28187022lolwut.Sorry, I meant "why was he banned", I was sitting in that thread confused why there was nothing...Oh shit, three days? That means we're getting nothing else for the week.
>>28187052Shit. We might lose Blackjack now too.
>>28187016I may not be a particularly computer savvy fellow, but how does one get banned for "evading ban"? How does one evade a standing ban?I know I once got banned for a day for linking to Wikipedia, much to my eternal frustration...I'm going to go reread the rules, as some aspects of the forum present themselves counter intuitively or seemingly odd and random....though the singular post Ban warning someone posted a screencap from /a/ for was divinely hilarious. Banned for talking shit about a JoJo's hair I believe.Anyhow, back to tanks.
>>28186995>>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"Did somebody say chili date night?
>>28187135>I may not be a particularly computer savvy fellow, but how does one get banned for "evading ban"?Dunno, but one can evade ban by switching IP of something like that i think, and if you were caught doing that you can be punished.Still, GermanSteel himself didn't know why he banned for that reason, so i guess someone inner Sodoko get roused.
>>28187140Our gramp will spike our portion with stronger recipes. Again.
>>28187173hmm...reading the rules it appears that Ban evasion is punishable by some kind of permanent ban that you may be able to appeal after some days of non use.So, about those Easy 8s.>>28187200>>28187140That man is allowed nowhere near the kitchen this time, we are getting convienience store dinner bentos and we are liking it...we are liking it whilst we stay conscious and awake for this planning session with Miho that will be all business until it becomes all ...suggestively said business? Sweet innocent romance and hand holding? Miho tactically deploys against us?
>>28187253Screw that, we're American and we'll at least hug our girlfriend.GAIJIN SMASH!
>>28186995>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"Has browns?
>>28187253inb4 Maho goes Jin-Roh on Russel...in which Russel goes CAPTAIN AMERICA
>>28187312 I am worried about meeting Maho...I am worried about her thinking ill of our relationship with her little sister while also dealing with their own issues between one another...guys, I think we're in trouble...like...a lot of trouble and we don't even know it yet. Will the rose of our romance bloom in the face of such jack booted and iron fisted adversity?
>>28186995>>"So, hash out a plan tonight?"
>>28187389>Will the rose of our romance bloom in the face of such jack booted and iron fisted adversity?Are we adding Maho to the harem?
>>28187389Maho is nothing to sweat over in comparison to Shiho. How does a filthy gaijin like us impress an ice queen like her, earning her approval of our relationship with her youngest daughter?
>>28187420By being the badass of tankery we are?
>>28187420>How does a filthy gaijin like us impress an ice queen like her, earning her approval of our relationship with her youngest daughter?... Are we adding Shiho to the harem?
>>28187229>convienience store dinner bentosFuck that noise. Isn't there a ramen shack we can visit on this boat?
>>28187404 No, Maho is the extended outreach of the adversity. The adversity of the Nishizuma' family matron not wanting us with her daughter as we are endemic of a style unlike the heavy discipline of their German style tankery. As cold as Maho was toward Miho outwardly when they first met again, imagine how that would go in the tank cake shop on land if Russles was there with Miho.... we'll be seen as a further corrupting influence, making her shame the NIshizuma style...
>>28187420Besides, Maho's the heir, Miho's the spare.
>>28187389>>28187420Maho actually loves Miho a lot, which is why she acts the way she does to shield Miho from their mother and give her a chance to do what she wants. Go read Little Army.
>>28187312>>28187389I don't think she's in a position to do anything worse than giving us the cold shoulder.
>>28187451... Yes, and?
>>28185401KV-2 can't penetrate PLOT ARMOR
>>28187455I will. Thank you for the recommendation.Though that still means we might wind up in her crosshairs all the same. If Maho is a loving sister, she is going to place us under some deal of scrutiny.
>>28187484It could if they could traverse fast enough to hit anything.
>>28187486http://ak-scans.wikia.com/wiki/Girls_und_Panzer here you go ;)
>>28187420Implying we need her approval.
>>28187570Oh we don't need it, its just her lack of approval of us might make our life difficult all the same.
>>28187591>>28187570It'll come with winning the tournament, so we don't really need to go out of our way to get it.
No Sentinels tonight. Not even close to finished.
>>28187420You act like Shiho doesn't know Grandpa.You act like Shiho has never boned Grandpa.You act like Shiho has no respect for our family line of tank players descended from combat veterans.>tfw actually the good sensha boy Shiho always told Miho to bring home.
"Right..." You say, standing up. "Sounds like Miho's got the beginnings of a plan coming together..." You yawn and stretch. "So, another strategy meeting, then?" You pause for a second to think of a decent-sounding time. "Say, Twenty-Hundred tonight at my play?" Miho smiles, standing herself "Sure! I'll be there!" She nods politely to you and then to Anzu. "Lunch is almost over, so I better start heading to class!" With that she excuses herself."Russells." Yukari says with a smile. "Not going to be able to make it tonight- I've got plans again." She says and you look at her just oddly enough for her to hold up her hands. "I promise I won't be sneaking off onto another ship tonight!" She says with a smile. "I'll see you at practice though!"You turn to head out as well, maybe even catch up to Miho and escort her to class- Yeah it's stupid but you're young, dumb and in love- when Anzu grabs your attention. "Commander Russells?"You turn around to look at the class President, again flanked by her two underlings. "What is it, Anzu?"She smiles. "Momo has informed me that this interview must be a success." She says, picking up some papers and shuffling them. "Do your best, alright? Otherwise..." At this point her smile turns wicked. "I'm telling everyone.">Vamos.>Let's needle her just a bit.>Other.
>>28187955>>Let's needle her just a bit.Troll mode on!
>>28187955>"Telling everyone what?"She ain't got shit on us
>>28187988This.Alternatively:>Other: 'Not if we tell everyone first'.Like that'll ever happen.
>>28187955>Let's needle her just a bit.We started with using her office and eating her chips, let's have fun with it!
>>28187955>>Vamos.Let's get this interview kicked off.
>>28187703Suddenly my schedule cleared up again and I have time to finish
>>28187955>Let's needle her just a bit.But more seriously Japan success or Murika success? Those are different things.
>>28188100>That picFuck yes!
>>28187955>Let's needle her just a bit.
>>28187955>Let's needle her just a bit.What could possiby go wrong?
>>28188325Oh boy, now you've done it
She can threaten us all she wants, but this is something that would hurt Miho more than us. Push back hard.
Alright, fuck it, I can't get the right mood for writing SentinelsConsider yourselves free of my Australian tyranny for tonight. Fuck.
>>28188007I'll be laughing if she goes and tells everyone and everyone was like "Yeah, we know already."
>>28188431Considering YUKARI already sees it....at this stage i believe everyone might at least suspect something already happen between us and Miho, but just too polite.
>>28188431And I'll be laughing when we find her secret shrine to Russels. Oh what a funny discovery that'll be for the protagonist!
>>28188491Well according to the last thread and /k/ripple, Anzu WAS a romance option.
>>28188508imagine the hatesex.
Since Sheilas and Sentinels won't be posted tonight, I have another thing to show you guys.A friend of mine drew this for me. It's a basic model AC1 with two pounder. He refused to draw the dickgun.(Note, as he's drawing this for my 'alternate' sentinel picture in question has welded armour with bolts instead of a single cast piece)He's done the base work and over the next few months I'm going to add on to it with all the different variants of Sentinel, up to a post-war version that I've completely made up.Picture is in 1cm = 1px scale
>>28188686That looks awesome.
You stare Anzu right in the eye. Dead in the eye. And she stares right back, a smug look of someone who has leverage written all over her face. "Ever I suppose you've probably wondered why Miho is waiting so long to tell everyone?" Anzu says calmly. "I mean, as good as you are with that Pershing, you are a foreigner and she's from the prestigious Nishizumi family." Anzu shrugs. "What would happen if everyone found out? Her mother would be very disappointed..." Without saying a word you walk up to the evil little President and scowl at her before grabbing the entire rest of the bowl of Sweet Potato Chips. Momo immediately protests. "Put that back! Those are for the Presi-" She starts, but you cut her off."I didn't eat lunch." You say in a tone so cold that a Russian would actually be quite comfortable. You turn around and walk out the door with them. "I'll bring the bowl back." >Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!>Find Rose, inform her of latest problem.>Find someone else?
>>28188891>Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!
>>28188891>Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!When is the interview, anyway? I thought we had class now?And where did all the anons go?
Anzu knows that sometimes all she needs us to do is be Commander Russells. And part of that is getting us wound up from time to time.
>>28188891She spiked those chips, didn't she?>Keikaku doori
>>28188891>>Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!>>Find Rose, inform her of latest problem.These things can go hand in hand.
>>28188508I wanted Kay...
>>28188978I like Discworld too.
>>28188891>Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!Fuck Anzu. We've got Murika to impress.
>>28188891>Find crew, get ready for interview- Anzu be damned!Since, you know, that's the best way to actually get through this all.
"Alright, so as you guys know, we're getting interviewed..." Richard and Patrick light up, Rose looks bored and Roy glances longingly at the door, obviously gauging his chances at a break for it- with his sister right next to him they aren't good. "It's just some guy who writes for a blog back in the states." You shrug. "So it's not going to be a huge deal over there, but Anzu and Momo are probably thinking this'll get us exposure back in the States, so we need to make sure we make ourselves and the school look good.""More like she's looking for a Sugar Daddy..." Patrick says, eliciting a short laugh from the rest of the crew. He's more than likely entirely on the mark. You roll your eyes anyway. "Ours is not to reason why. Also that's exactly the kind of crap we need to avoid saying." You say, "Because if we don't, if we make Oorai look bad, Anzu will rain an ungodly storm of crap upon us the likes of which we've never known. She has the power, she'd have the motive and you better believe she'd have the opportunity." You lean forward. "So- two rules. Keep your answers short unless you're explaining something about the tank- I'm going to do my best to guide the interview so you only get questions about your stations. That means Rose- you're answering questions about the gun, Roy, you're on Ammo. Richard: engine and transmission. Patrick? Radio and electrical." "What if he gets personal?" Richard says. "Asks about, ahem, relations with the locals?">"Tell him the truth.">"Tell him we're not here for the dating scene.">Other.
>>28189542>>"Tell him the truth."
>>28189542>"Tell him the truth."
>>28189542"Tell him the truth. Or no comment."
>>28189542>Other."Tell him we can't reveal out secret training techniques"
>>28189542>Other"Tell them only what needs to be said, 'I'm seeing someone' or 'I'm single'
>>28188417:(>>28189542>"Tell him the truth."
>>28189757I'm on an ace combat kick all of a sudden so it's a little hard to get into the tanking mindset right now.Probably have it done by next thread though, as long as next thread isn't tomorrow.
>>28189542>OtherIf you feel comfortable with that line of questioning you can tell him, otherwise... don't.
"In the unlikely event that he decides to delve into the personal lives of highschooler tell him the truth- nobody'd believe otherwise." You say with a shrug. "Only guys their age on the ship? Yeah, fat chance of anyone believing that- at least for you, Richard." He smiles smugly. "Also, keep your answers short- especially if they're personal. We don't need any long diatribes.""What about pictures?" Roy says."Would imagine there will be some photography... Just try to look good for the camera." You emphasize 'try' while looking at Patrick. "Don't be silly, but don't try to be a big tough guy, right? And for God's sake no 'secret birds'- they aren't secret and they make you look like an idiot.""What do we tell him about the other tanks on the team?" Rose says, glancing back at the motley assortment of generally unwanted tanks.>"We're doing the best with what we have.">"Our team is unothodox, but we're able to be very adaptable.">Other.
>>28190159>Other."Watch us on the battlefield."
>>28190159>>"Our team is unothodox, but we're able to be very adaptable."A bit cocky, a bit explanatory, a bit boasting--sounds perfect.
>>28190159other, talk about Miho
>>28190159>"We're doing the best with what we have."Deception is key in warfare.
I do wonder how anon is going to cock up the Maho/Erika scene.
>>28190427>cock upYou answered your own question, mate.
>>28190427We get into fisticuffs with Erika defending Miho's honour, inadvertently insult the Nishizumi school and just plain fuck things up.
>>28190427We mistake Maho for Miho and kiss her. While Miho is watching.
>>28190564I don't think even *we're* that dense.
>>28190581Of course, I'll probably be proven wrong.
You smile over at Rose. Dumb blonde she most certainly isn't. "If he asks us about the rest of the tanks on the team, or in any way insinuate that our tanks my not be up to snuff compared to the other teams we'll be facing, just tell him to watch us on the battlefield- we'll show him what Black Jack and this team are capable of, even with older machines."The team seems satisfied with that- nodding and smiling. Good- they need to be cocky for this. Confidence is what gets you fans.It's another hour of working idly on Black Jack- you can't do something too involved because you'll have to drop when the reporter shows up and you need to have Jack in touring condition. So mostly you guys just clean- scrub the wheels, wash the plating, de-trash the fighting compartments.You're in the turret when you a voice comes from outside the tank. "Hello? Are you Commander Russells?" A female voice says in English. You poke your head up. "Right here!" Evidently she'd mistaken Roy for you- then again nobody really knew what you looked like. "Can I help you with anything?" You get a look at the woman- tall, mid-twenties brunette with rather ample assets, at least compared to your recent environment."Oh! Sorry," She says, walking forward and reaching a hand up to shake yours as you slide down off the turret. "I'm Holly Knudsen." She says with a smile. "I'm here to interview your crew!"
>>28190663>Holly Knudsen...why on Earth does that sound familiar.
