Tuesday, September 10th, 2013SITUATION: http://pastebin.com/Ac5gJdwqMECHANICS: http://pastebin.com/Se82xDLeCREW ROSTER: http://pastebin.com/qVD3DM17THE SHOP: http://pastebin.com/ZMy4Q2sqArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Girls%20Und%20Panzer:%20LGA%20QuestYou are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President and new commander of Lafayette Girls Academy’s revived Tankery Team.Time for school.Last night was pretty great. Dinner with a movie. O’Hara went straight home after it finished up, as did the rest of your staff. You, being a bit lazy, decided on just bunking with Kitten for the night.The rustling outside on the balcony indicates that it’s incredibly, incredibly, windy today. At least it won’t be hot. You can’t even imagine how well cooked you’d be inside the tanks during practice today.You hit the showers, and ponder on Kitten’s shampoo. Hm, just shampoo. No conditioner, no soap, no body wash either. Eh, like she says, it works.After the showers, you take a peek at your weight on the scales. Not a single pound gained or lost. EXCELLENT. Gotta maintain them curves somehow.You dress yourself in your uniform, then decide on borrowing Kitten’s thigh highs. If you know anything about wind, it’s that you’re going to be cold, and bare legs do not like that one bit. You look over at Kitten, sleeping soundly under her covers. D’aaawww…A knock at the door. “President! Ready for school?”> Yes> No> Other
Yes, can I have the keys to the tank?
>>28340726>> Yes>tight highsMy zettai ryuki senses are tingling.
>>28340726How the hell do they know that we are here?Are we that obvious?
>>28340726>No body-washWould she be offended if Trude bought some for like her birthday or Christmas or something? Because jeez.> YesGive Kitten a good-bye head-pat. But all carefully-like, so she doesn't wake up.
>>28340726>Yes>>28340872yes, we are that obvious
>>28340946We will have to be less obvious so that Kitten doesn't get scared off.
>>28340960If anything Kitten is more obvious and gives about -2 fucks regarding it.
> YesYou open the door and say, “Yep! Ready to go!” You look down at Nancy’s legs, clad in pantyhose. “Nancy, pantyhose today?”Nancy nods. “Yep, it’s pretty darn windy out here. Funny how it was hot just yesterday too!”Lisa says, “Well we are on an academyship that’s moving. Of course the weather’s gonna vary.”You sigh. “Yeah, I’d honestly prefer if the weather would, you know, stay consistent. At least back in Virginia the leaves fall in the fall, the snow falls in the winter, the rain falls in the spring, and the heat rises in the summer.”Nancy presses her hands on her cheeks. “I’m more concerned this wind is gonna blow my skirt up!”Lisa nods. “Yeah, that’ll be a problem.”Ramirez lifts up her skirt, causing you all to recoil in horror… until she reveals that she’s wearing her gym shorts underneath. She looks at you all like you’re stupid. “You don’t wear your gym shorts underneath?”Lisa says, “You know I don’t know what’s more impressive, the fact that you thought of that and I didn’t or the fact that you just lifted up your skirt without prompting.”You shrug. “Whatever, let’s get to school.” You shut the door, then all of you hit the road.“Oh yeah, Boss. A new list of tanks just came in for purchase. Wanna see ‘em?” asks Lisa.> Yeah> Maybe later> Other
>>28340978>> YeahWe can look even if we don't have money.
>>28340978>> YeahLet's see.
>>28340978> YeahAWWWW YISSS
>THE SHOP: http://pastebin.com/ZMy4Q2sqWow. All these Swedish tonks. Did their school ship close down or something?And we're down to $6,450... Since it's not like we'll be able to maintain it anytime soon, shall we consider selling the T28/T95Or hold off for now?
>>28340978> Yeah. Oh you mean the tanks? Yeah.
I got quite disappointed tg. Saw this anime in one go. I am sad that Erwin and all the others didn't get anykind of lines.waifu
>>28341001I vote selling.
>>28340978Chrysanthemum, why are you so... off the beat.
>>28341001I personally think we should look for a buyer. Schteel has been giving us hints with EVERYBODY who's serious about tanking fucking laughing at us when we mention it.
> Yeah“Sure, might as well.”Lisa pulls out her smartphone and brings up the Wishlist page of Tankslist. She then hands it off to you. “You don’t have to purchase anything now, but there’ll be a new selection next week.”Stridsvagn fm/31 (12,000) (Vintage)LOOK AT THIS SHIT. IT’S GOT FUCKING WHEELS ON IT. YOU SEE THAT? 30 SECONDS BETWEEN TRACK AND WHEEL TRANSFERRAL. ALL TERRAIN. YOU NEED THIS TANK.Stormartillerivagn m/43 (16,000) (Comp. Spec.)105mm Howitzer. Casemate assault gun. Reliable enough. Crew of four.Stridsvagn m/41 SII (12,000) (Comp. Spec.)Swedish licensed production of the Panzer 38(t) Ausf. S. Thicker armor, better engine. 37mm Gun.Stridsvagn m/42 (15,000) (Vintage)Swedish design. 75mm Gun. Crew of four. Reliable, efficient, well protected. What more could you want from it?Pansarvärnskanonvagn m/43 (12,000) (Comp. Spec.)I KNOW IT’S JUST A SWEDISH TANK WITH A GERMAN CONVERSION. DON’T READ THE FUCKING FINE PRINT NEXT TIME.Crew of four. New casemate design.… “Why are they all Swedish?”Lisa shrugs. “Hell if I know.”> Note: You can put a tank on your Wishlist. This will reserve it for an additional week, but will replace the fifth slot for the next selection of tanks.> Wishlist a tank?> Y/N?> Other
>>28340978Oh boy, it's time for GuP:LGA Quest: Tanksperging edition. Can't wait.
>>28341001Also, a quick look and I don't think we want any of those tanks.
>>28341068NI don't think any of them are what we're looking for.Plus we still need to comp-spec the Churchill.
>>28341068I don't know much about tanks, but those all look underwhelming. Tentative N.
>>28341068Ask kittain if their any good
>>28341068>NSwedish tanks are kind of shit.
>>28341100And upgrade to mk IV so it won't be as derpy.
>>28341043>fucking laughing at us when we mention it.That is so true. Probably best to scope out for museum curators or private collectors, then attach a condition that it won't be used for tankery for... eh... as long as it takes until we win the tourney, I guess?Pretty much the only problem with letting it go is some other school using it against us.>>28341068> Wishlist a tank?> NWe can ask for Octavia's opinion later though.
>>28341100Actually, the Stridsvagn m/42 is a fairly fast 75mm gun and the Stormartillerivagn is a nice 105mm Howitzer.
>>28341068I'd say that only m/42 is worth picking from this list, assuming we'd like to get it.
>>28341135They really aren't but there is better out there and we might get enough money to buy one of them this week. Who knows?
>>28341146Well yeah. But baby steps. >>28341153Kinda. It's 75 is like the PzIII and short barreled Stug 75's, not the long, so armor pen isn't that great. Plus it's vintage and we don't need another fixer upper. >>28341147I would be ok with this.
>>28341068N. None of these look particularly useful, and we still have more tanks than crews, I believe.
> N“Let’s come back to these later. I’m not exactly educated in the art of Swedish tanks.”Lisa nods. “Alright then,” she withdraws her smartphone into her pocket. “Still, quite surprised the Swedish had tanks during the war.”You say, “Oh you’d be surprised!” You actually didn’t know that either, but hell, you’re not gonna let them know that.True to your words earlier, it is windier than Chicago outside. You press down the front of your skirt so it doesn’t flap around like a 1920’s whore, as do the rest of your staff. Gotta stay modest and decent after all, this ain’t no party school.You arrive at the entrance of the campus. You check the time, plenty of time before class actually.> Talk to your staff> Take a walk around> Other
>>28341236Yeah, but one is a super heavy which might not be of much worth on the battlefield. a recovery tank which needs to be weaponized, and a panther
>>28341266>> Take a walk aroundLet's see if we can find O'Hara.
>>28341266> Talk to your staffWonder if we'll get a second chance with Hanna?We're still not aware of the circumstances in the Animation Club.
>>28341266>> Take a walk aroundMaybe we'll meet Hanna still feel bad for not helping her
>>28341266>> Take a walk around
>>28341001Don't sell the T28, it's the perfect anchor. Nothing is going to penetrate the front of the tank, and the only way to take it out is by going for the tracks, and it has 4 of them.Just have your TDs hang back and pick off any tank that tries to take out the T28, have mediums screen to the left and right to prevent any enemy forces flanking the T28 and use the Churchill as a secondary anchor so that you can bolster a flank that is getting overwhelmed.
>>28341441I'm seeing a 12 mile range on the 105, but realistically how far could we expect an amateur crew to be accurate at?
> Take a walk aroundYou bid farewell to your crews and decide on taking a walk around the campus square. It may be windy as fuck, but hell it’s refreshing after the past few days of hotter than hell. You pass by the statue of the Marquis de La Fayette, then you remember your math quiz. You quickly walk back, spin the spurs on his boots, then continue on.At that point, you see O’Hara and O’Brian.You wave and walk over to them. “O’Hara, O’Brian! Good to see you!”O’Hara nods to you, her characteristic hardiness is back on her face. “Pool. Nice to see you too. Need something?”You shrug. “Oh, just thought I’d say hi. You have a fun time last night?”O’Hara is about to say something, when she quickly looks over at O’Brian. “Don’t say anything you cunt.”O’Brian wakes up. “What? What happen?”“WERE YOU SLEEPING AGAIN!?”“Oh shut up! Did you Pool shag already ‘cuz-““WE DID NOT! YOU FUCKING CUNT! GET OUT OF HERE!”With that, O’Brian shrugs then walks away. O’Hara sighs and looks back at you. “So, how are you doing then?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28341441For that to work we need to up the gun a LJA 2 pounder gun won't do much good against any real aromor
>>28341441I still vote for selling it, nothing is ever going to be that easy. >>28341490Amatuer? Probably half a mile. I remember one of the German tank aces saying something along the lines of never engage more than 1Km out or something.
>>28341490The typical engagement range of WW2. Which was around 800 metres, if I remember correctly.
>>28341001Do you have any idea how rare T28's are? I highly doubt you'll be seeing another soon. Armor is great too.
>>28341490They can always get better, and the rifle team has experience shooting at long range.Btw, this is a different anon saying not to sell it.
>>28341522Polite.>>28341537>>28341441It moves at 8 miles an hour! You can jog faster than that!
>>28341522> PoliteNot bad, not bad.
>>28341565Give it a push then
>>28341565Park the chruchill against its arse and nothing can penetrate the thing. It was designed to break the goddamned Siegfried line with force and armor alone, but was so massive it couldn't be hauled across the Atlantic in time. That's how awesome it is.No reason to sell it, it's got the most potential out of everything, it just needs a minor upgrade.>>28341522Polite.
>>28341522>Politeit seems we might be her crush, so we'll need to remember not to lead her on.>>283415301 km is possible with WW2 era equipment, if you're using a long range cannon and use a german FERO (still used in the Leopard 2 line as an emergency sight). However this requires a well trained crew to pull off succesfully.Accuracy drops rapidly at ranges beyond that without computer aided gunnery
> Polite“I’m doing quite well, O’Hara. Thanks. What about you?”O’Hara crosses her arms. “Oh, I could be better I suppose. Pinkerton and O’Bannon have been assigned as part of my Shift actually.”“That can’t be good.”She shakes her head. “On the contrary, they’re quite efficient. They’re just a bunch of cunts.” She points at you. “They seem to have a bone to pick with you in particular.”You sway to the left a bit, shrugging. “Well, I mighta tattled on them a few days back.”“Ah, if there’s anything a Hall Monitor hates, it’s a snitch.”You say, “What’s done is done. Besides, you can at least control them, can’t you?”O’Hara says, “I only say where they’re going to patrol. I’m not a Nazi.” She sighs. “Anyway, Pool, I truly did have a bit of fun last night. Gettysburg is a real fun movie!”You say, “Well, I’m not as educated on the Civil War, plus you know, it’s four hours long.”O’Hara nods. “Ah, you probably wouldn’t like the Director’s Cut of Gods and Generals then.” She waves you off. “Anyway, I wanted to tell you something-“A very convenient and sudden gust of wind then decides it hates you by blowing your skirt up. You quickly push it down, but not before you gave O’Hara a very good look at your tighty whities. You chuckle nervously, blushing.O’Hara’s redder than a sunset.“Uh- I- Eh. Yeah-“ she stammers, then quickly points behind her. “I should go.” She quickly runs away like a track star, knocking an unfortunate freshman onto the ground.> Head to class> Continue walking around> Other

>>28342006Yeah. It's real fun.
> OtherYou walk up to the freshman. “You okay?” You almost help her up, but she gets up on her own, dusting herself off. She looks over at you, then smiles. Yeah, she’s fine. You pat her on the shoulder. “Well, hey, that looked like a nasty fall.”She simply waves you off. Oh, that’s fine. She then picks her up her stuff and offers her hand.…Oh OH, she wants to shake your hand. You shake it, looking at her a bit curiously.“You don’t say much, do you?” you say. She simply shakes her head. Well, at least you know she ain’t deaf.However, she surprises you by saying her name, “Loretta Niven.” She simply gestures her hand and then slowly says, “Sorry… I have a stutter.”You nod. “You seem fine.” She simply shrugs at that. Welp, ain’t gonna argue that. “Anyway, my name is Gertrude Pool. It’s nice to meet you, Loretta.”You check the time. OH BOY TIME FOR MATH. You quickly wave goodbye to Niven then head to class.Math class. What grades will you receive for that quiz yesterday? Something amazing? Something spectacular?D.D’S EARN DEGREES, FUCK IT.English and Chemistry roll by relatively quickly too. That Tankery Practice is making you a bit giddy.ALARMTIME FOR LUNCH> Find your staff> Head to lunch> Other

>>28342138well we have kitten.O'Hara could become a friend, but she is interested in something else...do we have any other potential friends?
>>28342083> Head to lunch
> Head to lunchYou quickly head out to the cafeteria and pick out your lunch. Today’s lunch is a little better than yesterday’s, spaghetti. Yeah, not really a fan of that, but at least it’s better than the rice curry in this school.You find your staff at the usual table and of course, sit down next to Nancy.“Hey, President. How’s it going?”“Good, except I got a D on my math quiz.”Lisa snickers. “Knew it.”You frown at her. “Oh come on, Lisa, I’m not good at math! The only arts I know are the Liberal ones that hipsters get in college in an attempt to look cool.”Lisa smiles, raising her hands defensively. “Hey, I didn’t say anything. But you know, math’s gonna be real important in Tankery.”“No, please,” you say. “You’re gonna ruin Tankery for me.”> Converse casually> Talk tanks> Other
>>28342225> Talk tanksWell, we're on the subject anyway.
>>28342225> Talk tanks
>>28342225> Math> Tankeryluckily the math is all plug and chug> Talk tanks
Fuck this is boring, I vote we sneak out into the motorpool and steal one of the tanks then go tear-assing through campus on a drunken rampage. Crash it into that snobby freshman bitch's dorm.
>>28342225>> Talk tanks
>>28342225> Talk tanks>>28342272plug and chug? Math is vital to proper tank operations. Modern tanks just have computers to do most of it for us.
> Talk tanks“You know, we got practice today. I reckon math isn’t going to factor in though, Lisa.”Lisa shrugs. “You never know.”Nancy says, “I’m a little nervous though, especially if we’re going to be fighting other tanks.”You wave her off. “Relax, Nancy. Captain Dubois isn’t going to throw us into the grinder that fast. She’s an Army Captain! Not a Marine.”Ramirez says, “Is there a difference?”You say, “Besides. Being in a tank is the safest place you can be. Short of the Churchill or maybe the KV-1S, we’re probably the most well armored thing in the team.”Nancy nods. “Alright, I mean, aren’t you nervous? With the whole, tournament thing and the match with Heinlein?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28342310Good thing we're not the gunner.
>>28342363> BoastS'all good in the hood
>>28342372A tank commander should be at least good at all roles within a tank>>28342363Boast
>>28342310Old tanks didn't require much math to operate. Their gunnery sight just had a reticle printed on it that approximated ballistics and drop at a particular distance, like a regular old rifle scope.For range finding, count the time between the flash and hearing the boom of the enemy tank's cannon in "one Mississippi's and times it by 340 meters to determine which dash on the reticle to use.Or the gunner's reticle would have the approximate width of a tank on it, so you'd square the reticle up on the notches and it would give you a range. All the math and shit was done by the people who designed the tank, the proles operating the thing barely need to know how to read and count on their fingers.
>>28342363> BoastNo pressure on us, what's there to be nervous about?
>>28342363>> BoastBecause she needs cheering up.
> Boast“Of course not! I mean the Practice match is all good fun right? Win or lose we learn something.”Nancy asks, “But what about the Tournament? What then?”You say, “Different story. But Nancy, I assure you, we will make it through that. I’ll make absolute sure of it.”Nancy opens her mouth, but then grunts and goes back to eating her food.ALARMTIME FOR PE.You quickly say goodbye to your staff and don your gym uniform for some exercising fun! It’s too windy outside, so you can say goodbye to swimming for today. Instead it’s…> Basketball> Handball> General Exercise

>>28342620yes there is, one of the aces
>>28342646I took it to mean he figures Bolter will have withdrawn like DeWitt.
>>28341068Only the last of these is remotely worth anything. We have a shortage of crews, at the moment. Not tanks. Let's secure a crew (other than the aces) and buy them a tank that fits them, instead of the other way around.This way we can also wait for better tanks to hit crai- I mean tankslist.More importantly, did our jewgirl check for what a vintage T28/95 could be worth?
>>28342696Not yet. There's still a couple vocal guys who want to keep it.
> General ExerciseAlright, General Exercise. Mostly just stretching, running, jumping. It’s simple but practical. You’re off to the side of the Basketball games so at least you have a nice show to watch.Push-ups. Fuck push-ups, you’re mow through them at a paltry 15 push-ups.Stretches. You stretch your legs, you stretch your arms. You contort like a circus clown.Running. A couple of laps around the gymn, not too shabby. Decent times, decent number of laps at 20.Overall, pretty relaxing PE class. You hit the showers.> Find someone to socialize with> Shower and then head to your next class> Other

Wasn’t fun at all,” she says. “I’m too short. Can’t make those lay ups like you people can.”You wave her off, grinning. “Oh don’t worry, it’s not about size in basketball. It’s about skill and…” What else. “Math!”“… Math?” she looks at you skeptically.“Yeah, totally. Gotta figure out them angles and shit.” Hanna simply shrugs in response. “Anyway, Hanna, sorry for yesterday. I don’t uh… have a lot of time so to speak. I got a lot on my plate.”Hanna nods. “Eh, understandable. I am kinda sad that you refused. Unless you want to reconsider?”> RECONSIDER?> Y/N?

> Head for the SportsfieldYou arrive at the Sports Warehouse, and already you can find your crews waiting at their tanks, talking and conversing amongst themselves. Dubois however appears conspicuously absent, she’ll probably arrive later though.You’re more concerned that Kitten is standing off by herself, playing on her DS. You walk up next to her. “Hey, Kitten.”Kitten looks over at you. “Hey, Trudy.” She looks down at your legs. “Ah, thought I missing something. Gotta say, that little space of skin between the skirt and your legs is tasty, Trudy.”You smile proudly. “Well, thank you, Kitten. If only there were some guys my age in our general proximity who could appreciate it. Boxers would just drop, I’m sure.”With that, your staff arrive as well. “Hey, President!” says Nancy. “Looks like everyone’s here.”The crew commanders from all the teams walk up over to you. “Hey, Gertrude,” says Cathy. “We wanted to ask you something.”“Shoot.”Cathy says, “We’ve been thinking, and we wanted to paint our tanks!”Anna nods as well. “Something to get rid of these boring greys and greens and all that.”Janek looks at you hopefully. “So can we?”You scratch your chin, thinking on it.Can they?> Y/N> Other

Why not?”They all cheer.> + 5 MORALE ACROSS ALL CREWWith that, the characteristic roar of an engine is heard, and you look over at the entrance to the Sports Warehouse. The Sheridan quickly drives in and stops near you. Dubois pops out of the Commander’s hatch. “Afternoon, Pool. Ready for practice?”You nod and give her thumbs up. “Always ready!”Dubois smiles, then hops out and stands on top of the turret. “Good, good. Everyone, gather around! Today’s gonna be a real special day.”All the crews gather in front of the Sheridan, and wait patiently for Dubois to start. They all quiet down.“Alright, yesterday, your tanks have been fitted with the necessary equipment to make them all Tankery legal. I’m sure you all have done the necessary research of course, and I think it’s time for your very first mock battle!”> - 10 MORALE ACROSS ALL CREWOh boy. Uh… You look over at Nancy. She’s certainly smiling, but her eyes have gotten that thousand yard stare thing again.Dubois hops down from her tank and begins handing out maps. “These will be your starting positions, report there and once everyone’s in place. We can begin!” Dubois hands you your map. Oh Christ, you’ve never read a map before. At least a PHYSICAL one. “Ready, Pool?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28343304> NeutralWe all gonna die.

>>28343304>> BoastMy body is ready.
>>28343304>> BoastGlad we said yes to the paintjob.Also what are the rifle team going to use?

>>28343402Hey, at least the pillbox has a large gun. :/
> Boast“Of course I am! This is what we’re training for, isn’t it?” You take the map and look over it. Looks like a map of Marshall Ney Forest. Otherwise, it’s complete gibberish to you. Maybe you should’ve paid attention in Geosystems last year.“Well, good to see you’re enthusiastic, Pool!” She looks over at all the other concerned crews. “You all can stand to learn something from her,” she says.They all look at you, briefly putting you on the spot, then they say positives.“If Gertrude can do it, why can’t we?”> + 5 MORALE ACROSS ALL CREWYou walk over to your crew. “Everyone ready?”Kitten shrugs. “I suppose we are.”Lisa asks, “Who’s gonna be the gunner?”Nancy nods. “Yeah, we haven’t exactly decided on roles yet, have we?”> WHO DOES WHAT?> Let them decide> Assign them roles
>>28343428Their 122 will be bigger.
>>28343435>Let them decideWell...might as well.It's not like Trudy'd be any better at it.
>>28343435Let them decide.
>>28343435> Let them decideRule on conflicts if they come up, otherwise they can do it themselves.

>>28343476>RamirezGunner>KittenLoaderLet's switch these around, Kitten had the most interested tankery, would be mean to make her be just a loader
>>28343511Now that I think about it, Kitten might make a better commander than us. She's not exactly fit, and she knows more about tanks.
>>28343515>>28343511>>28343479>>28343476Noobs, switch Ramirez and Kitten.

>>28343435> Assign them roles>>28343476these>>28343531Loader is supposed to be the more experienced/knowledgable one.there is a reason my carreer went Gunner->Loader with the tanks.
>>28343549so how do you explain her playing the vidyers over the internet then?Is she too introverted for that too?Fucking moron.
>>28343531You mean the exact position Yukari was in?
>>28343476This.>>28343531Kitten gets to be in a tank, that's good enough as far as I'm concerned.
>>28343562But no one cares about the loader, I think Kitty deserves some prestige, and the resulting popularity...actually, why don't we ask our crew what they want to do?
>>28343568You mean the thing plenty of NEETs do?Uh yes, because going outside and getting fresh air is a thing.
>>28343435> Let them decideOr we could go for the Anzu style command and have one person do most of everything."Ramirez! Load and shoot!">>28343476>>28343479It's been established that Kitten isn't keen on physical exertion.It's either us or Ramirez who should do the loading since it's been established the both are plenty stronk.
>>28343568Hey, the butthurt patrol has showed up!
>>28343571We want to beat Ōarai, we have to have a better crew configuration than them.Making Kitten the loader seems like a waste
>>28343476this>>28343616I wasn't aware that Kitten had an A in maths. Because the Gunner by far needs the most in maths.
>>28343638The need for math as a gunner is blown way out of proportion, even for WW2-era tanks.
>>28343438But the 122 doesn't have nearly as much armor penetrations. It's a howitzer, not a tank killer.
> Assign them roles.You point at them as you assign their roles. “Ramirez, you gun. Kitten, loader. Lisa, Driver. Nancy, you’ll co-drive and handle comms. Sound good?”They all shrug and mutter.You nod. “Right then. Saddle up, girls!”Everyone takes their places within the Sherman. With that, Lisa brings the engine to life and drives the Sherman out of the Warehouse.You’ve all been provided headsets to communicate with each other over the intense engine noise. You poke your head out of the commander’s cupola, along with Nancy poking her head out as well.You need to remember to get the turret with two hatches, that’ll definitely simplify things. Maybe it’ll get a chance for Kitten to get some air.Now that you think about it though, which tank did the Rifle team pick since you sold the BT-42?Eh, you’ll figure it out soon enough.Nancy guides Lisa to your starting position within some mess of trees. Then, turns the engine off. Now all that’s left is waiting.Nancy climbs up out of her position and leans back on the turret. She looks over at you and asks, “Think we’ll win?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28343668Every bit helps, and so far I'm not seeing a better argument than putting Kitten there because Kitten. At least Ramirez has the grades to support her.
>>28343682> BoastWe'll smack them!(will we roll to see who does best?)
>>28343682>> Neutral"Maybe. The T95 might be a problem. If it can get to us, that is."
>>28343682> NeutralNo, because our tank sucks.
>>28343693Kitten knows the most about tanks for one, a gunner should know the weakpoints of enemy tanks and the capabilities of our gun, not the loader
>>28343682> BoastOf course we'll win, maybe.
>>28343682> NeutralI'm betting the KV-1S is going to grind us under its tracks.>>28343713Kitten is a casual who knows most of her shit from playing WoT. She's better than most, but she isn't exactly a friggin ace.
>>28343682> NeutralThe rest are all probably gonna gun for our team, since we stood out in making an impression to Dubois.Can we try to secure alliances over the radio?
> Neutral“Doesn’t matter if we win, Nancy. What matters most is the learning experience.”With that, Dubois speaks to everyone over your headsets. “Now that you’re all in place, let me explain. This will be a Free-for-all elimination match. Last man standing wins. All rules apply.”You look to the sky, you can barely make out a quadcopterr drone however above the forest. Must be what Dubois is using to observe the fight.“Now then, let’s get on the bounce.” says Dubois. With that, a flare shoots up into the sky and explodes into a white flurry. “Begin!”You quickly duck into the turret. Nancy as well heads down into her position. Lisa turns the engine back on and sends the Sherman forward through the forst.The forest is definitely going to lend itself to some close quarters fighting.

> Cautious“Lisa, take it slow. Let’s play this safe. Who knows where they might be.”Lisa says, “You got it.”The Sherman crawls through the forest as you peer the periscope. You don’t have much of a view, but it’s certainly better than just sticking your head out.Wait, why don’t you just stick your head out? It’s not like someone’s going to shoot you.You unbutton the hatch and stick your head out, only to immediately meet a couple of branches.Okay, back into the turret.You peer through, sweeping the view of the periscope through the trees and bushes, a narrow field of view but at least you’re not getting hit in the face with trees.Suddenly, you hear something.

Was probably just your imagination. Then you get a flash of metal. Okay, that was not your imagination.You quickly unbutton then squint your eyes at what you saw.The Churchill I with the Littlejohn Adaptor attached to the end of it’s barrel.

> RetreatYou quickly button up and scream. “Lisa! DRIVE!”“Where?”“I DON’T CARE WHERE, JUST DRIVE! RAMIREZ, FIRE THE GUN NOW!”Ramirez quickly sights in the gun, then fires. You take a peek out the periscope. Barely a scratch off their turret armor. The Churchill fires back, and immediately the Sherman shakes, with a loud bang coming out of your left. Sounded like a glancing hit off your turret.“WHAT WAS THAT!?” yells Nancy.“We’re okay! We’re okay!” you shout. The Sherman reverses, then immediately turns around and starts legging it through the foliage.You unbutton the cupola and poke your head out back. The Churchill is giving chase. It fires again, this time with the 3-inch gun and this time missing and splashing against a tree. Your Sherman is slowed by the dense shrubbery, while the Churchill, while slow, appears right at home in this terrain.Neither of you is going to catch up or lose each other at this rate.> COMMAND POINTS: 15> Turn around and try to engage> Keep running and hope you’ll lose them> Other> TACTICAL MANUEVERS> Nishizumi Hook (Unavailable.

>>28344420> OtherTarget the tracks. The chance to track it is rather slim, yet still larger than penetration from the front.
>>28344492>>28344452Ramirez has her initial target. Our goal is to get behind the Churchill and hit that delicious vulnerable rear armor.
>>28344520Too many trees. Mobility kill is fine for now. They can repair the tracks sure but it'll take a while.
>>28344492Tracking it is going to be difficult. The Sherman is firing a 75mm projectile, the Churchill has a track width of 559mm and it has multiple road wheels many of which are redundant.
> Other“RAMIREZ!”Ramirez takes off her headset for a minute to stick her finger in her ear. She looks at you.“Ramirez! Bring the turret around! Aim for their tracks!”She nods, and quickly begins the task of turning the turret. Another sharp crack reverberates against the Sherman.“THEY’RE SHOOTING AT US!” screams Nancy.If there’s anything you know about the Sherman, it’s that the Turret can turn pretty damn quick. Kitten loads in a new round, you’re not sure what round but hell you don’t care at this point. You tug on your collar, waiting for the next shell, yours or theirs.Yours actually.The shell explodes against the Churchill’s right tread, sending track links flying every which away. The Churchill skids right into a tree, stopping.> MOBILITY KILL: CHURCHILL I (VINTAGE)You clap your hands and cheer. “We did it! THEY’RE TRACKED!

> Finish off the Churchill“Lisa! Bring us around their rear!”“Okay!”The Sherman stops, then reverses, narrowly missing a shot from the 2 Pounder gun. The Churchill struggles to bring it’s turret around to face you, but it is vain. The Sherman reverses around the rear and brings the gun to bear.“FIRE!”The Sherman puts a hole right into the engine block, and out pops a white flag on the Churchill’s turret.> KO: CHURCHILL I (VINTAGE)> KILL CREDITED TO: GERTRUDE’S CREW (NO CALLSIGN)You collapse in the commander’s seat, sighing in immense relief.

>>28344966> Stand groundDon't move into the clearing, if the enemy can see you, you can see them. There gun hasn't penetrated your frontal armor, so I'm doubtful it can at all. Search for the dust cloud the cannon would have kicked up.By moving into the clearing you're effectively putting yourself in a position that allows the enemy to attack from the sides while remaining in a concealed position
>>28345120We're already in the clearing! We gotta move!>>28345086Speaking of which, keep an eye out for that KV. The Souma might be camping.
>>28345136I read it as coming upon a clearing. Personally, I would have never allowed that to happen, but seeing as it has, the only correct option would be full ahead to get out of the clearing as quickly as possible.
> Forward and engage“Lisa! Advance, full speed!”The Sherman’s engine roars as Lisa puts the pedal to the metal. You peer out the periscope and scan your front. A burst of light, a muzzleflash. Again, another bounce off your front, creating a very chilling echo that Nancy does like at all.“THEY’RE SHOOTING AT US!”“No, really, Nancy, I HADN’T NOTICED!” says Lisa.Nancy flails in her seat. “THIS IS TOO MUCH! I HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE!” Another bouncing shell causes another scream out of here. Against all logic, she tries to crawl out the front hatch. Lisa takes her attention off the controls to try and drag her back.“NANCY! GET BACK IN HERE!”Suddenly, a very loud explosion occurs near your right. That was DEFINITELY not from the tank shooting at you. You bring the periscope right. It’s the T28/T95 GMC, breaking cover to engage your right.“WE’RE DONE FOR!

WE’RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT!”“Lisa!” you shout. “Reverse and orient right!’“LET ME OUT OF HERE!” You hug from Nancy behind, pinning her into the seat. She struggles and shakes against you, but you’ve got the upper hand.“Nancy! It’s me! Gertrude! Stay calm! Relax!” Nancy shakes in her seat. Another bounce from off your front. “Nancy! Just relax! Okay! You’re not gonna get hurt! I promise! Just stay in your seat, please!”With that, Nancy slowly begins calming down. Her breathing drops from hyperventilating to acceptable levels. Fine, you quickly climb back to the Commander’s chair.Peeking out of the periscope, you see the Poles’ Stuart running right at you.> TEAM WOJTEK IS ATTEMPTING: THE HONORABLE APPROACH> COMMAND POINTS: 14> Counter the Stuart> Engage the T28/T95 GMC> Retreat> Other> TACTICAL MANUEVERS> Nishizumi Hook (Unavailable.

We should remind Nancy that being in a tank in a senshado match is literally the safest place to be by a long shot.
Anyone else want to upgrade the M4 to an E8 at the first available oppurtunity? I think we'd get a lot of bang for our buck, so to speak
>>28345403>>28345427>>28345447 While ramming it head on will take out the Stuart, it will also most likely immobilize us. In front of a T95. Do not want.> Counter the StuartTry to put them between us and the T95, avoid collision.

>>28345194Counter the Stuart. Try to evade, and hit it in the side or rear as it passes.

BRACE FOR IMPACT!”Everyone hangs onto something sturdy as the Sherman accelerates to its full road speed against the Stuart. You watch the distance between the two tanks closes incredibly rapidly.

> Retreat“Lisa! Let’s get out of dodge! GO!”The Sherman quickly reverses, with Ramirez firing a shot at the traversing GMC. It bounces off the angled frontal armor. The Sherman reverses into the cover of the foliage, and soon the GMC is nothing but a blur in the background of leaves, grass, and trees.You shiver even more. This is AWESOME. PLEASURABLE EVEN. You hug yourself to try and keep yourself under control.You look at your crew members. Kitten appears to be in the same boat as you, but she’s simply struggling to hold that 75mm shell. Ramirez is lying back in the gunner’s, breathing steadily. Lisa is biting her lip as she peers out the driver’s periscope.

You and the S35 started on opposite sides of the forest, which means you’re probably a long ways away from each other.You unbutton the cupola and look out. Nothing moving.The Sherman continues plowing through the forest. Thankfully, you’re not hit in the head with any more trees or branches. But where could that S35 be?You scratch your chin, thinking.Then it hits you, bouncing off the turret’s left side.

> Pursue them“After them!”The Sherman plows through the foliage and towards the S35’s last known position. You keep looking for them through the periscope, but so far you see occasional glimpses of its rear or its turret.Then the S35 rips leftwards, and you being the pursuer follow them.You look down at Ramirez.“Think you got a shot, Ramirez?” you ask.Ramirez bites her lip, peering through the gunsights. “I can see them… I don’t know. Want me to take the shot?”You keep looking.

>>28345997Holy crap, is Poole blind? Literally every other team has shot at us and bounced off (or missed in case of T95). Either we are running around with a bright orange flag or the SCP needs to have her eyes checked.

>>28346239We're the ones constantly on the move, hanging out in clear open areas as well as being huge in general.
>>28346239That's what I thought when they bounced the S35's shell. We've been spotted first by every other tank.What I'm wondering now, is which tank the rifles are in considering they should be the best shots.>>28346228> Take the shotYou're only dealing with a 47mm

> Keep pursuing“Save it for now, Ramirez.”The S35 keeps accelerating full tilt through the woods, with you following close behind. Although the S35 might be smaller, these woods are not doing it any favors to it or your Sherman.Their turret traverses around to face you, and a shot is fired at your frontal armor. It bounces off, but leaves a very nasty scratch.You set your jaw. They’ll eventually hit a tree or something and then you’ll be able to claim victory.Then, the S35 turns left and into the trees.

We got one shot at this!” You can’t afford a breakdown now. It’s now or never.Ramirez immediately begins traversing the turret towards the S35. The S35 stops, traverses it’s own turret, and fires towards your side armor. It hits a nearby tree. Your turn.Ramirez fires.It slams into the S35’s side. A little white flag pops out.> KO: SOMUA S35 (COMP. SPEC.)Dubois says over the headset. “Last man standing: the M4 Sherman!”…You collapse into your commander’s chair.There are those chills again.

Lisa hugs the still somewhat catatonic Nancy, who slowly comes around to realizing what happened.“We won?” she asks.You nod violently. “Of course we did! Our tanks totally fucked but we did it!”With that in mind, now begins the recovery. None of the tanks can go back to the Sports Warehouse under their own power, so the Naval Studies Engineering kids procure the Bergepanzer III and start towing.All the crews report outside the Sports Warehouse, the sun is already setting on the day.You can see all the crews look positively exhausted.

Took bets on whether or not you’d win.”“… of course you bet for me right?”Dubois bursts into laughter, slapping her knee.

My stage manager and…”> Former Ace Tanker> Friend of mine> Other

>>28348329>Friend of mine

> Friend of mine“… a friend of mine.” Octavia looks at you, surprised.Cathy offers her hand. “Cathy McDowell, it’s nice to meet you! These are my friends, Tara, Ashleigh, Andrea, and Tabitha!”As Octavia shakes Cathy’s hand, Anna comes in from behind. “I’m Anna! You’d want to meet my friends Mamie and Bess!”Octavia had suddenly went from outsider to warm welcomed. You can’t help but snicker. You walk over to Kitten. “Hey, Kitten, what movie we watching?”Kitten shrugs. “We ain’t watching a movie, we’re just gonna marathon a couple of Hogan’s Heroes episodes.”You nod. “Sweeeeet.”Nancy yells from the kitchen. “Everyone! Dinner’s ready!” Even sweeter.> Get your food> Talk with someone (Specify)> Other

>>28348491> Talk with someone (Octavia)If Dubois lost, did Octavia win the bet then? And how much did she win?Or did someone else get in on the betting action?Oh hell, maybe the Naval Studies students were in on it too? Someone might've made quite the killing.

> Talk with someone (Octavia)“Hey, Octavia, enjoying yourself?”Octavia is enjoying a plate of rice curry made by Nancy. “Nancy makes great food. This is delicious!”You nod, getting handed a plate by one of the Aviation kids. “Yep. She’s a real great cook you know?” Octavia nods in agreement. You say, “Say, Dubois told me you took bets against me in the practice match.”Octavia bluntly says, “Yeah, I voted for the KV-1S.”“Why’s that?”She shrugs. “Seemed more versatile than you. Really gave me a surprise though, Gertrude.”You nod. “Yeah.”For the first time in a while. You see Octavia genuinely give a happy smile. “I’m really glad you’re doing Tankery.”You smile back at her. “Hey, don’t make me blush.”With that, the lights are dimmed. It’s starting.“Wait, is the episode where they try to pass off the Priest as a Tiger?” asks Octavia.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_bQwE51pOs
