"Wait... Where is Patrick?" You say, looking around as Rose drops to the ground beside you. You glance around, walking around the back of the tank. "Patrick?" You call out. "Patrick! You're up with the interviewer." You swivel your head, taking a step up onto Black Jack's tread to get a higher vantage point of the hanger. He's nowhere to be found. You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and your radioman is nowhere to be found. "Dammit." You cursed quietly to yourself. "Dammit, dammit, dammit." You repeat, scrambling back down the tank to look around. You look over at Rose and open your mouth to say something.She knows what you're asking before you even get the first syllable out: "Don't look at me- I've been sitting in the turret." She says, shrugging before looking around herself."Dammit." You repeat.>"Keep Holly busy- I'll go find him.">"Go find him- I'll keep Holly busy.">"Split up- we'll cover more ground."
>>28350530>"Keep Holly busy- I'll go find him.">95 minutes lateNew record?
>>28350530>Go find him-I'll keep Holly busy
>>28350635To be fair, last time he said it would start at 9PST.>>28350530>"Keep Holly busy- I'll go find him."

>>28350530>"Keep Holly busy- I'll go find him."
>>28350657>Girls und Panzer Quest will return Sunday- expect a late start around 7PM PST.
can we just have another all out water fight to keep Holly distracted?
>>28350530so what is the story behind the OP pic?I've seen it a few times, but never got around to asking.
>>28350530>"Keep Holly busy- I'll go find him."Throw Roy at her then contact Saori.
>>28350732There's a museum display with a real-life version of it about commanding the M3 Lee/Grant.
You sigh. "Dammit." You say again to yourself. "Just... dammit." You grimace and look over at Rose. "Alright, try to keep Holly busy, alright?" You say, walking off down the line of tanks. "I'll go find him..." You say, resigned. Surprisingly, it doesn't take very long to find him. And he's alone, sitting in a pilfered lawn chair sipping some kind of juice box...You glance left and right- You expect Roy and Richard to come at you from the sides with some manner of embarassing attack- water balloons, glitter, flour, eggs and breadcrumbs. (Yes, they had on one occasion back in the states attempted to bread you like a chicken nugget. No you are not going to think about it right now.) "Roy!" You say, approaching cautiously. "Hey, your turn with the press." You say."Nope." He says simply. "I don't do interviews."You blink.>"Patrick, this is important.">"Why don't you do interviews?">"Do you really want Anzu coming down on us?">Other.
>>28351483>"Do you really want Anzu coming down on us?"
>>28351483>You expect Roy and Richard to come at you from the sides with some manner of embarassing attack- water balloons, glitter, flour, eggs and breadcrumbs.

>>28351483>"Patrick, this is important."
>>28351483>>Other.And I probably would have gotten you out of it if you had saw fit to mention that when I brought up the interview to everyone. Sadly, you did not, so tough shit.

>>28351483>otherThat wasn't a question.
>>28351560Er, this is assuming that we're talking to Roy, rather than Patrick.
>>28351483>"Patrick, this is important."Also>"Roy!" You say, approaching cautiously. "Hey, your turn with the press." You say.Dem names, BJ. Dem names
>>28351483>"Patrick, this is important.">"Why don't you do interviews?"Maybe he has a good reason. Like he'd stare at her tits the whole time.
You're so lateHow long we runnin' tonight?
well since he only posts like once every hour,probably all night.
>>28351633that tiny protect gear silhouette
"...Patrick." You say, slowly glancing around, trying to spot the trap. "This is really kind of important." You say calmly- "If this interview gets screwed up, Anzu-" You start.He takes a last swig of the juice box before crushing it. "Don't care- let her come down on us." He says, nonchalantly tossing the box behind him. "What happened last time I did an interview?" He says. Oh, crap. Right. You'd forgotten about that particular incident."C'mon... That was one stupid shot!" You say, refering back to the interview he'd done for the local TV News about their tank a couple years ago in America. "People completely forgot about it in a week!" You say."Yeah, well this girl's even hotter than her!" Roy says defensively. "What makes you think history won't repeat itself?!" He leans back. "Nah, get someone else to do it.">Get someone else to do it.>"Just keep eye contact this time!">Other.
>>28352766>>Other.If you weren't acting like an arrogant prick I might actually agree with you, but you didn't pull me aside and talk to me about this like a responsible person would, so you're doing it, or you're finding a good replacement in the next 10 minutes or i will make your life a living hell.
>>28352766>Get someone else to do it.If Patrick's last though, his screw up will be remembered more than the preceding ones.
>>28352766>Other."Patrick, if you don't do this interview, flubbing in front of a hot girl will be the absolute least of your worries"
>>28352766>Other.>You have Akebi, you're obviously capable of dealing with it.>Also, on that subject... You still owe us for ditching practice. Get to the damn interview.
>>28352766All he does is the radio anyway.Maybe get him and Roy to do a joint interview? Loader and radio aren't /as/ important as the other main roles. Not sayin' they don't do anything, but you know.
>>28352766>Get someone else to do it.Welp, we can trust Miho right?inb4 hilarity.
>>28352843We're talking to Patrick, not Roy. Roy is the one who got with Akebi and the one who ditched practice.
>>28352843>You have AkebiThat would be Roy.
>>28352766>Patrick>RoySeriously, who the fuck are we talking to?
>>28352857Surely Miho wouldn't screw this up? I mean she has every reason to be interviewed too, she is the captain of the Senshado team after all.
>>28352877Yeah... the 4hrs of sleep I got last night are catching up to me. We're talking to Patrick.
>>28352877We're talking to Patrick. The Irish guy, radio operator and the only guy without a girlfriend yet.
>>28352766>>"Just keep eye contact this time!"
>>28352766>>"Just keep eye contact this time!"I'm sure things can't possibly be worse than something that needs that comment.
>>28352857This.Yes, we are that desperate. It's PATRICK.
>>28352857This will end in tears.All the more reason to vote for it!
>>28352766>"Just keep eye contact this time!""It's a blob interview without video anyways, man!"
>>28352941>blobBLOG, damnit, blog.
>>28352857Patrick or jealous Miho, Patrick or jealous Miho, Patrick or jealous Miho, Patrick or jealous Miho,....I wasted more brainpower thinking on that than necessary.Eh, jealous Miho it is.
>>28352857>>28352891>>28352905>>28352920>>28352954Uh guys, I was under the impression that this interview was in English.
>>28352979I...Wait, that's actually a good point.Can Miho speak English?
>>28353007She can probably speak a bit of German.Better question is if the interviewer can speak Japanese
>>28353007Not really sure. Even if she can, she's still leagues behind a native speaker, wandering eyes or not.
>>28353058At least Miho has an acceptable reason for her screwup unlike Mr. Wandering Eyes.Sweet Fucking Jesus, is it really that hard to keep it in your pants?
>>28352857In the case Miho can communicate with Holly, I'm sure Holly wants to know about Jap Tankery.
>>28353082No, but keeping your eyes from wandering is much harder.
>>28353082It's like you were never a 16-year old boy.
>>28352766>Get someone else to do it.Holly undoubtedly knows about this. She means to make it happen again.Tell Patrick to hide in the Type 95, we'll claim he's not feeling well and in the Nurse's Office.
>>28352857I doubt Miho can speak english very well. Best case scenario, we get a Darjeeling-esque performance from her and she's still jealous
You sigh, rubbing the bridge of your nose- Patrick's not gonna budge on this, too much stubborn Irish in him. "Fine! But if I can't figure something out..." You let the threat hang, partially because you can't think of anything and partially because you've already figured something out. "This ain't over, Patrick." You say, backing away and pointing at him. "You bought yourself time, but you're getting interviewed before this is over!"He smiles back at you and waves goodbye at you. Cheeky bastard.You need a distraction for a while- you can tell Holly that Patrick had a bad piece of sushi and had to head home, but that only buys you time. You approach Miho's Panzer IV. "Miho!" You say in a loud whisper. "MIHO!" You look around- you don't see Holly anywhere so you assume she's still in the tank....Dammit she's alone in your tank. That needs to be rememdied. Also you have no idea where your driver and loader are.>Go try to get yourself interviewed.>Maybe she can interview Miho instead.>"Patrick's sick- We're looking for our Driver/Loader."
>>28353809>Go try to get yourself interviewed.Delay the inevitable, and see if Rose or Miho can put the fear of god into patrick
>>28353258>Dat image>Dat filenameI think this quest is stupid and shitty.but damn.
>>28353809>Go try to get yourself interviewed.And have Rose get Roy so he can be next up the chopping block. We search for our errant driver once Roy's interview is underway.
>>28353809>"Patrick's sick- We're looking for our Driver/Loader.">>28353860>I think this quest is stupid and shitty.Then why are you here?
>>28353809>"Patrick's sick- We're looking for our Driver/Loader."A good Commander never trains Jack of All Trades. A great Commander never wastes a first aid kit on the radioman.

>>28354295Yandere miho awaaay
>>28353809>Go try to get yourself interviewed.Miho cannot into english you chucklefucks
>>28354355We don't know that.We don't know that Holly can't into Japanese either.
>>28353809>Maybe she can interview Miho instead.>>28354553WHAT HAVE YOU UNLEASHED RUSSELS?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ivga0iPzggFor some reason, whenever I think of Yandere Miho I think of this...But with the Panzer IV.
>>28354646Oh God we're fucked.
Miho's head pops up from the Commanders hatch. Seeing you she smiles. "Hello, Russells!" She says politely before recognizing the look on your face. "What's wrong?" She says, pulling herself up to sit on the edge of the cupola before sliding over and lighting upon the Panzer IV's hull."Well, the interviewer is here. And Patrick is having flashbacks to the last time he was interviewed." You say, rubbing the back of your neck. "I'm going to try to stall her and do my interview-" You say, glancing back over at Black Jack, where Holly has finally gotten bored of poking and prodding sensitive equipment and is wondering why she was left alone for so long.You look back to Miho, who's staring at the buxon reporter. "She's going to interview you?" She says, keeping her voice carefully neutral. "I thought it was going to be a gentleman?" She's staring right at Holly. "Need some backup for it?" She offers helpfully.>"Sure! I'm sure she'd have questions for a Nishizumi.">"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy...">Other.
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."GET THEM WHILE I DISTRACT HER.
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."Have Miho take Rose with her. That'll convince Roy at least.
>>28354941>"Yeah sure, but first we need someone to find Richard and Roy."ALL THESE RsWHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy...">>28354788There's no escaping the yandere train m'boy.
>>28354975Rhymes, I'll bet.
>>28354941>>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."Time to feed on a yandere's insecurities.>>28354975Richard, Russels, Roy, Rose, Sweet Zombie Jesus.
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."Yes Miho, you are leaving your boyfriend with a hot older woman with advanced frontal sloping...
>>28354995Well, Roy and Rose were suppose to both start with the same letter because loltwins.The Richard for the driver, that was a mistake.
>>28354941>"Actually, I need you to find Richard and Roy..."There are no brakes on this train

So that's how Miho could live alone after being kicked out of the Nishizumi house......

>>28355653Which Gaijin was doing it instead.It isn't exclusive to Wargaming is it?
"I think I can handle her..." You say absently. Perhaps not the best choice of words. "I need you to find Roy and Richard-" You say, taking a look around for the two. "They're up next after me and someone's gotta make sure they're ready." Yeah, you're not sure how wise this might be, but someone's got to find your crew and Rose is going to need the help.Miho nods, smiling. "Alright! We'll find them!" She says, before opening the Panzer's gunner's hatch. "Hey, we need to go find Grizzly's loader and driver- Saori...?" Miho starts giving off rapid-fire commander orders and you turn, comfortable knowing that perhaps one of the few truely competant people you know is on the job.Unfortunately you're a bit less than competant for the task you're about to take on. You jog back over to Black Jack and start climbing up. As bad as things had gone for Patrick the last time he was interviewed, they hadn't gone all that much better for you. You shake it off, though.Just stick to the facts, don't wander around in your answers and you'll be just fine.
>>28355700NOTHING FUCKING HAPPENS AGAIN!
NEXT TIME ON GIRLS UND PANZER QUEST!>Our interview is nigh.>We get asked uncomfortable questions.>Cloudy with a chance of meatballs.Girls und Panzer Quest will return Friday at 5-6PM PST. (This time with more sleep and an earlier starting time!)Follow me on twitter for schedule updates and to find out when the thread goes live!https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>28355675Gaijin doesn't even have tanks yet. Plus their intro lines are gonna be Russian and German. IIRC Wargaming are trying to time their Japan rollout with the Jap tank line rollout>>28355700>we see full-yandere Miho>we see full-yandere Yukari>we don't ever see our crew again
>>28355710THE RIDE NEVER ENDS
>We get asked uncomfortable questions.>Russells start talking about barrel length, muzzle velocity, rate of fire, and frontal armor sloping.>Miho hears something entirely different.Btw, can this thread be used for GuP: LGA tonks discussion, if anyone is up for it? I got questions. It involves the Valiant too, unfortunately.
>>28356037>Russells start talking about barrel length, muzzle velocity, rate of fire, and frontal armor sloping.>Miho hears something entirely different.This is way too MISUNDERSTANDINGS for BJ NOT to use
>>28356037I doubt anyone from LGA is on right now but ask ahead.
>>28356055Alright, thanks.It's regarding the Valiant's QF 75mm gun. (For context, the Valiant was one of the available tanks for sale in the shops pastebin in LGA).Can it be stripped off the Valiant and cobbled into other tanks that can use the QF 75mm?Would it be Senshado legal to put it in a Mark I Churchill? Or should it at least be a Mark IV first?I've been hearing and reading so many horror stories about the Valiant that I don't know if it extends to the performance of the gun.
>>28356134as far as I know, the armament of a tank is limited to what mark it is. Anyway, the turret of the Mark I churchill can't take a 75mm. You'd need to get the Mark IV turret. Not sure whether we're allowed to mate turrets of different marks to hulls of different marks; that's something we're going to need to ask the instructor in-character or something.We may as well see if we can buy the 75mm separate anyway. No use buying the entire tank if all we want is the gun.
>>28356190IIRC Senshado "rules" don't allow kitbashes of various parts of existing tanks, but that's something that you should take with an entire shaker of salt
>>28356190>We may as well see if we can buy the 75mm separate anyway.Well, the thing is that the Valiant costs $100 in-game.For comparison, the 76mm gun M1 is $7,000 and the 75mm gun M3 is $3,000. (Again, in-game. Ignore the economics of it for now, we're baffled and trying to figure it out too.)Now, if the trend on the price of the gun is relatively close, then we may have actually gotten a bargain for that $100 QF 75mm gun.And installation might be a moot issue since the team has relatively free labor. Actually, the whole discussion may be a moot point since the Valiant was struck off the list of available tanks for sale.But I appreciate being enlightened here. It'll certainly help in future decisions, and remove any red-tinted misconceptions at least.
>>28356190In semi-related, I feel like explaining some things about Sheilas and Sentinels now.I've made it so the 'quirk' of Australian tanking is that there's few limitations to tank mods. As long as the Australian Tanking Federation decides that it's a reasonable upgrade that might've been thought up by engineers in WWII, it's allowed to be put in.The Sentinels that the James Cook girls use actually have a number of improvements added to them, like a proper cupola rather than just a periscope.They also got a scratch built pratt and whitney for the powerplant of the lead Sentinel; to be fair, that engine /was/ the planned one to be used.Some teams do things like add spaced applique armour or caged armour, or add skirts, or change the type of fuel they use. Aussie tankery tends to be a little more varied.Remember this for when I run Sheilas and Sentinels Quest in the far future.
>>28356274those two guns are American guns and won't work with a British tank, just btw.
>>28356279Applique armour and Schurzen kits/armour side-skirts are a purchasable thing in LGA too, though the players will probably only start installing them during the tourney proper at most.>>28356291I'm aware of it. One guy mentioned the 76mm as Sherman exclusive.I'm just using those examples as an in-game yard stick to estimate possible prices of other guns.
>>28356254>>28356279Just crib off the canon America. Over there, there are no rules for modifications. Apparently, CITATION NEEDED one team took a Rheinmetall 120 mm gun and slapped onto a Sherman and called it a day. BTW that team lost. You can only take Senshado legal ammo so they didn't get the best ammo possible and they stuck it on a Sherman which caused a lot of compatibility issues as well as the fact you can be knocked out by many a thing.
>>28355711>>Cloudy with a chance of meatballs.We're fucked
>>28356305Well I've just made up now that one team has decided to put a pair of 2 pounders in the single turret of a Sentinel and cited the twin 25-pounder experimental tank as justification for it. The ATF let it slide.This too is Australian Senshado. Although they won't be allowed to use it outside of Australia.
>>28356291Funnily enough, there is precedent for the 75mm gun from a Sherman being mounted in a Churchill IV. Apparently a quite common modification in Italy, resulting in the Churchill IV(NA75).
>>28356350What'd be the advantage of that, aside from logistics?
>>28356312I didn't want to be that drastic. I've limited it to WWII era stuff and to what the Aussie Tank Federation (i.e. me) considers reasonable.
>>28356376You'd get a 75mm gun instead of the 6pdr usually mounted on a Churchill IV. Admittedly, the main advantage of the 75mm is in HE, and thus perhaps not overly interresting in Senshado.(Also, logistics, as said)
>>28356391Oh that's fine. I'm just making it a point that there are serious divergences between the rulings for senshado across the world.
This reminds me.>SaS when?Gotta write that shit.
