You were just getting comfortable, too. "What did you want to talk about?" You ask Holly, shifting forward uncomfortably in your commander's seat- Black Jack's turret actually makes an excellent and very private interview room. You could talk forever about Black Jack- plus it's a nice safe subject without anything embarassing that could be asked about it. You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you want to keep talking about your tank. "Well, to start, what can you tell me about Oorai's tank team." Holly asks, putting her pen to her notebook and looking across the gun at you.>"They've got heart, we just lack tanks...">"I think they'll give a good showing during the tournement, despite their handicaps.">"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything.">Other.
>>28460464>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything ."I mean the other teams may pack the field with late war tanks, but we have more than enough brains and guns to even the field.
oh boy oh boy!>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything."AGILE! MOBILE! HOSTILE!
>>28460464>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything."Our ragtag team will be part of our success.
>>28460464>[x] "They've got heart, we just lack tanks...">>28460504Agreed on the first count, but you can never have enough gun.
>>28460464>"They've got heart, we just lack tanks..."
>>28460464>>"They've got heart, we just lack tanks..."Play the sympathy card and maybe we'll get some tanks
>>28460557Damn, something ate my attachment.
>>28460464>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything."American bravado, ENGAGE.
>>28460464>"You know that thing about sizes of dogs and sizes of fights?">"I'm pretty sure we've got the latter covered."
>>28460464>>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything."COMMAND! CONTROL! COMMUNICATION!
>>28460464>>"We're trained, motivated and ready for anything.">implying we consider being underequipped a weakness and not a CHALLENGE.
>>28460940"What you view as a challenge, I view as a target-rich environment." -Total Biscuit
>>28461203"What do you mean?"GIVE NOTHING AWAY!
You think for a second. "Honestly? A week into their training they were able to take on and defeat St. Gloriana's tank team. Since then we've been training hard nearly every single day- I think they're ready for this tournement." It's true, you hope. The entire team had made huge strides in a month of training, going from literally not even having working tanks to a professional-level team. You lean forward aggressively and grin. "You look at the tanks we've got, and teams like Saunders or Black Forest Peak might laugh- but our team is diverse, our crews trained and as far as I've seen evidence for, Black Jack here is among the most powerful tanks on the field." You try not to let too much pride leak into your voice during the last sentence. Which distracts you from the one that comes after it. "Not to mention we're lead by the brilliant Miho Nishizumi, her entire family is legendary for their exploits in Senshado."She nods. "So I've heard- her mother and sister are both very well regarded." Her tone is neutral, but then she asks a question you'd been hoping to avoid. "And what are your thoughts on Miss Nishizumi?" She asks, obviously less than oblivious. >"As I said, she's a brilliant tactical and strategic commander.">"She's a great commander, a close friend.">Spaghetti.>Other.
>>28461262>"As I said, she's a brilliant tactical and strategic commander."Not yet...

>>28461262>"As I said, she's a brilliant tactical commander, who has done a great job in working with the other students and coordinating their efforts."and if she presses for more, then talk about how we are here to win tank battles not spread gossip.WE COOL CUCMBER
>>28461262>>"As I said, she's a brilliant tactical and strategic commander."
>>28461262>"As I said, she's a brilliant tactical and strategic commander."Emphasize how she is doing her OWN style of command, she is not a some vat-grown clone.
>>28461262>She's a nice girl.Confirm feelings, get ready for an ass kicking by overprotective elder sister.
>>28461313This sounds good however I would note that Strategy has nothing to do with Sensahdo, since is is all small level and small unit engagements. that is pure tactics
>>28461341We can take anything Maho dishes out. her mom? THEN we spaghetti.
>>28461376Well we know how much of a bitch she is so we can righteous outrage our way through instead of going all spaghetti.
>>28461395>righteous outrage So, America?
>>28461395hmm... So we hold out against Maho and Siho, but go spaghetti when Maho goes all caring on Miho.
The spaghetti is in the pot, so to speak, soon we are going to get flustered about Miho...not yet, but soooooooon
>>28461262>[x] "As I said, she's a brilliant tactical and strategic commander."If she won't say it outright, we won't dignify her insinuations by doing so ourselves.
>>28461818Let's just keep in the pot until Holly is done. Or Maho shows up with Erika... who we beat the crap out of.
>>28461861oh please, we all know that once Maho is in the picture, the first thing BJ is going to have Russels do is sperg out in front of her because he mistakes her for Miho.
>>28461916How and why would he (both BJ and Russels) do that?
>>28461916Considering they barely look anything alike, I don't really see that happening.
>>28461959>>28461990>Russels sees a Miho going into her apartment so he goes in after her needing a plot device."Hey Miho, sorry for barging into your apartment but I needed... wait you're not Miho..."
>>28461262>Trying to avoid talking about Miho>brag about Miho's skillz>"So, what do you think of Miho?">DAMMIT>>28461262>>"She's a great commander, a close friend."
>>28462155bonus points for seeing... that which can't be unseen.
>>28461433It's dangerous to post alone, take this!
>>28461433Not sure if clouds or B-2s...
You shift nervously, before finding you calm confidence again. "Miho's an excellent tactical and strategic commander," you say with a nod. "She incredibly flexible-" Shouldn't have said that. Should not have said that. "...strategically. She can look at what some would consider a bad situation and find a way to work with everything she's got to not just give a good fight but win." You smile warmly. "Anyone else might've given up, but she looked at what our team had and found a way to not just make it work, but make it effective."Holly nods, before writing something down. "You speak well of her professionally, what do you think of her personally?" She says. You feel your eye twitch and smell marinara sauce somewhere. "Have you spent much time with her outside of senshado?" She asks looking up from her notes at you.You swallow, hard. You'd woken up this morning with Miho asleep on your shoulder- did she know? How?>"We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings...">"I've hung out with her- she's one of my closest friends at Oorai.">Spaghetti and RUN!>Other.
>>28462429>[x] "We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings..."Sorry, honey. The spaghetti dinner's been canceled.
>>28462342>our bombers will blot out the sun
>>28462429>"Well, yes. Don't we all hang out with friends?"
>>28462429>"We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings..."Play it cool, man, play it cool. Don't let them see you sweat.
>>28462429>"I've hung out with her- she's one of my closest friends at Oorai."Point out that everybody on the team's pretty friendly with one another.No spaghetti yet. She hasn't even placed her order.
>>28462429>"We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings..."Let's just hop Miho's statements don't contradict us.
>>28462429>>"I've hung out with her- she's one of my closest friends at Oorai."
>>28462429>>"I've hung out with her- she's one of my closest friends at Oorai."It is physically impossible for us to have male friends at this school woman
>>28462429>Other"We're both strangers here in Oarai, so to speak. It would make sense for us to hang out together."
>>28462429>Spaghetti and RUN!"You've been speaking to my grandfather! I WILL MURDER THAT OLD MAN!"
>>28462429>"Well, yes. Don't we all hang out with friends?"STAY FROSTY SON.seriously though its like the kid has like no ability to stay cool under pressure, how is this possible? Guy needs to treat this like a tanking match, don't let them see you bleed.
>>28462429>We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings>but we are also good friends. All of our crews are. Comradery between crews is essential for a well maintained team.
>>28462548I like this.
Rolled 80>>28462548I like this as well. Also, rolling for spaghetti spillage level.
>>28462548throwing it in with this
>>28462429>>"We've spent time together, mostly strategy meetings..."
>>28462548>FriendsYou know she's sitting outside RIGHT NOW listening and feeling confused.
>>28462650I know. but it is for the greater good.
>>28462665We can explain and hug it out later.
>>28462650You mean she's sitting outside right now listening and feeling glad that we're keeping it a secret like she asked?
>>28462650I think she would understand that we would not want to annouce our relationship in some interview with some random woman, especially when this woman has been trying to get saucy gossip out of our crew.
>>28462429>>Other."Miho and I do most of the strategy coordination for the team. She's a lot better at making groups of tank crews work together, while I provide the experience in getting the most out of every tank.Consequently, we end up spending a lot of time together, and with the other crews. We're a pretty tight team. And we're all friends."In japanese, replace 'friends' with the word -nakama-. That would get the point across.
>>28462680God (*^%(&^%$!@(&^$!^(&@$#(&^! DAMM IT! How are we going to show Erika and Maho if we can't stand one simple reporter?
>>28462683I bet we get to hold hands for this one.
>>28462721With HVAP, that's how
>>28462737Throw in merciless taunting over the radio (for Erika) and you've got a deal!
>>28462761>We wind up in a final duel with Maho instead of Miho>Spend like ten seconds just staring eachother down>"Earn it."
>>28462818Dueling for the heart of a fair maiden, with Miho looking on slightly nonplussed, but caring about both combatants, for different reasons
>>28462818>>28462844How would BJ fare in a duel with Maho's tiger anyway? I know the panzer iv actually had the same movement ability thanks to tonnage ratios
>>28462818>I think BlackJack will look rather dashing in tiger pelt, don't you?
>>28462870The 90 with HVAP would probably render the need for a point-blank rear shot unnecessary.
>>28462870HVAP=wave goodbye to your turret wanker!
>>28462905>>28462917It would still require a shot, so the question is of maneuverability I suppose
>>28462927Since when was the Tiger known for its mobility?
>>28462870Whoever hits first wins.>>28462927Maho is savvy enough to destroy the environment to limit maneuverability. It'll probably come down to who has the better crew.
>>28462958Better crew: us, duh. First hit: we might bounce a close range shot to front.
>>28462870Well it's very simple - instead of waiting for the Tiger to follow us into the enclosed building before starting a grand duel, we merely rotate the turret 180 degrees and hit it as it's entering, since our gun is more than capable of penetrating its hull armor anywhere, even without HVAP.Since this is a quest, not an anime, we can be smart.
>>28462818I believe our duel will be with Erika while Miho faces off against Maho
>>28463003Wouldn't that be a treat. Betcha she's got a hate-on the size of a Maus for a bunch of Gaijin in the senshado tournament.
>>28463003So we get to topple the smarmy king.
I think BJ is going to be giving the other schools better tanks to deal with the fact that BlackJack is a cut above pretty much anything deployed in the anime.
>>28463026All I have ever wanted to do in GuP is just verbally and psychologically tear that jerk apart. while dressed like a Commisar, while riding a T28/95.
>>28463086I still say we throw our Irish guy with the bad mustache at her and see what happens.
>>28463073T-54 prototypes for Pravda then?I have no idea what Kuromorimine will have. Their line up is already pretty much as good as its going to get.
>>28463134I'd pay a hard earned dollar to see that
>>28463134Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. (implying couple)
>>28463086Ironically, on LGA quest the T28/T95 is incapacited due engine failure during their sparring session. And all aces smirks when it mentioned...
>>28463134Don't ruin the PotatoXSweetPotato pairing for me now..
>>28463158some snicker too
>>28463158I was mainly thinking ouf countering the Maus, being the game breaking B.S. tank that it is. (looking at archive) What thread was that?
>>28463152well it really just comes down to how much BJ wants to stretch the rules...
>>28463154>>28463156>>28463157After we win and he woo's her with his strange charm...
>>28463256>I told you chicks dig the beard!
>>28463217Two-three thread ago?I don't see that monstroity will much use for Trude team, and anons seems prefer something mobile but still have punch than that monster. At best it'll used on final match only, at worst we sold it off.....Back to this quest, do any E75 constructed? Or will converting KT will do?
>>28462952Tiger 1 Es were actually extremely mobile. They had very low ground pressure, Exceptionally good steering, Semi-automatic gearshift, and an extremely small turning circle.It's specifications beat every M4 Sherman other than the E8 in all aspects of mobility.
>>28463242I love how crazy the Germans were in terms of scale. too bad Speer cancelled the project for the 1500
>>28463332You're right, I remember now. a tiger could drive in areas where a Sherman would get bogged down. still delicate, and a maintenance nightmare.
>>28463389Worse than the M4, certainly, but not that much worse than the PanzerIVs.The issues as always were logistical and having qualified users and mechanics. Panthers and Tigers never actually had much worse operational rates than the regular tanks in the Panzerwaffe.
>>28463344and for the 1000 for that matter. That bastard totally mucked up GuP for us. just imagine the last battle with some of those monsters around.
>>28463438tracks so tight you had to disconnect them with hand grenades and having to remove at least three road wheels to access one=bad mobility in my book. Says how good the German mechanics were who kept these things running.
>>28463474That's more about strategic mobility than tactical mobility, anon
>>28463472I believe Tankery League will just stare on you and say 'lol no' if you try to enter with Ratte or something heavier.
>>28463344>Maus: 207 Tons>M1 Abrams: 67.6 TonsFuuuccckkk
>>28463494I accept that. Maho will still lose to us, because heart of the tanks.
>>28463500I have to believe that they would let you if you could find one.
>>28463500There probably should be a weight limitNo heavier than the Maus.
>>28463551I think the only way the League let that... thing in was because Shiho blackmailed them into saying yes. Wouldn't put it past her.
>>28463500I dunno. I could see a whole new match type (more for publicity and entertainment than real competition) if someone ever actually built a Ratte.Just it verses each team, winner is the team which survives the longest.
>>28463525Its not known as the heaviest tank ever built for no reason.
>>28463572Eh don't think so. Its a tank that had a functional prototype built by the end of the war.It fits the rules
"Well, we've spent time together- I'd definately consider her a..." You pause just a second too long. "...Good friend, even outside of senshado. But really, all of us are a pretty tightly knit group." You laugh a bit. "Surprising considering how many of these crews come from such diverse backgrounds- history nerds, volleyball players, freshmen movie buffs, the school council..." You smile warmly at the thought. "You think of Japan as a pretty homogenous country, but there's more diversity on this team than you'd probably find on any American football team..." Holly looks at you, a bit annoyed that you sidestepped what she was actually asking, and likely deduces that Miho might be a bit of an unstable subject for you- "Speaking of the council- evidently they gave you a great welcome?" She says, changin the subject expertly- you've no doubt that she's not done with Miho yet but you welcome the move to another subject. "What was it like coming to Oorai for the first time?">Eye Twitch. "They painted my tank blue.">"They were very welcoming- we felt at home from the moment we stepped on board.">Other.
>>28463586The Ratte wouldn't win shitThe guns can't aim low or enough to hit moving tanks, the shells weigh a metric fuckton, you'd need a few dozen engines and enough fuel to buy Iran to move it an inch, and it can't hit anything within a few dozen metres much less its entire sideIt's a massive punching bag and a waste of steel
>>28463669>>Eye Twitch. "They painted my tank blue."Aw HELL no. Not this shit again.
>>28463669>>Other.>"They were very welcoming, though there were a few cultural misunderstandings we had to work through"
>>28463669>>>Other.>>"They were very welcoming, though there were a few cultural misunderstandings we had to work through"
>>28463638Problem with the P.1000 and P.1500 is that they're strategic weapons- better used as mobile fortresses against fixed positions and troop concentrations. While their armor is likely thick enough to easily bounce anything we've got, in turn they'd also be completely useless against us.Honestly, tanks like the Maus, E100 and O-I were about as large as you could get and still have an effective anti-tank roll.
>>28463696agreeingdat eye twitch though
>>28463474Trade off. Those roadwheels gave it excellent ground pressure. Harder to maintain, but less likely to bog down and gives better mobility considering the very heavy armour.
>>28463696I second this. Better than openly bitching about something that's already long gone.
>>28463669>"They were very welcoming, though there were a few cultural misunderstandings we had to work through"
>>28463712>completely useless against uswell I suppose they could run us over or something
>>28463669>Eye Twitch. "They painted my tank blue.""Not just any blue. No, they painted Black Jack in the gayest shade of blue they could find on this ship."
>>28463712IRL: And can be totally wrecked by just one little 500 pound bomb. B-17 rush anyone?
>>28463740The only way that thing could run us over is if we stood still for a few days
Rolled 57>>28463707All on board for this one.
>>28463669>Eyetwitch "They painted my tank blue"
>>28463669>Eye Twitch. "They painted my tank blue."If she's even half as much into tanks as she should she'd feel pretty vindicated too.
>>28463669>[x] Eye Twitch. "They painted my tank blue."Nevar forget.
>>28464066Begin with this. If she presses, go for the twitch.>HFW blue Black Jack
You laugh a bit nervously, leaning back in your commander's seat, relaxing again now that you're not talking with a reporter about your somewhat secret girlfriend. "Not going to lie- there were a few..." You search for the right phrase. "...Cultural misunderstandings? But we worked them out quickly enough. Honestly, our handlers back in the states did a great job preparing us; language lessons, cultural immersion. Considering they only had a few months to do so..." You shrug."What about Oorai itself? Were there any problems assimilating?" She asks, her pen scribbling across the pad. She already knows the answer- she's here herself."Absolutely not- The entire town has been nothing but welcoming and accepting. I don't think I've met a person here that's had a harsh word about me or my crew." Looking back, you're actually a bit amazed- one of the things that you'd been warned about was that it could often be difficult for outsiders- gaijin- to really fit in."I've seen that." Holly says, smiling. "You mentioned cultural misunderstandings?"You force a smile, your blood going up a degree or two just thinking about that mess. "Well, the school council initially had our tank painted in Oorai's school colors- They didn't really mean anything by it, especially since the first that happened with most of the other tanks were painted in, well, let's call them non-standard camo patterns." You say, remember the bright pink Lee and the 38(t)'s gold paint job. You continue after a second. "I guess we fit right in, come to think of it- but eventually we went back to more standard schemes in the interest of, y'know, not being spotted a mile away." You crack a smile. "Strategic decision."Holly chuckles a bit at that. "So, aside from Black Jack, what do you think of the other tanks on your team?">M3 Lee>Pz.38(t)>Panzer IV>StuG III>Excelsior/I-Go
>>28464726>Panzer IV>StuG III

You snort. "Where do you want me to start?" You ask, half jokingly. She looks at you in a way that tells you she's looking for an answer. "Alright then..." You say, leaning forward a bit. "Start with Turtle Team- the Panzer 38(t)- old Czech design that the Germans co-opted during the war. It's light, and pretty agile and their driver, Yuuzu, gets a lot out of that. Their gunner is still coming along- she's aggressive but impatient and Anzu, their commander." You shrug. "No complaints really- she does her job, though she's most useful outside the tank, getting us funding and making connections."You take a breath. "After that we've got Duck Team- they used to be the volleyball club, but evidently it got the axe. They actually started on a Japanese I-Go..." You pause to savor the look of incredulity on Holly's face. "Yeah- even with that old thing they still made excellent scouts- helps that Shinobu drove it like she stole it. Eventually we replaced it with a British Excelsior- experimental 'universal tank' design that was meant to have a better mobility than their older infantry support tanks while still having a better gun and armor than their cruiser tanks." You nod. "Good gun, good mobility, and I know Duck Team has the guts to bring that thing to its limits.">>
>>28465575Do premiums automatically turn XP gained into free XP?
>>28465600Inb4 holly is recon from another school
>>28465605Don't think so
You pause to let Holly finish writing a few more things down. "The Lee is crewed by Rabbit Team- Freshman girls. They're young but you saw what they painted on their tank..."Holly looks up and smiles. "Oh yeah! The Monty Python reference!" Dammit- even she's seen that movie."The Lee's a solid all-arounder. The 75's a good gun, but the sponson mount limits its use." You continue. "They've got a capable and aggressive crew, though, and that counts for a hell of a lot.""After that is the StuG: Hippo Team. Excellent gun, good reliable armor and decent mobility- even if it lacks a turret. It's crew is the History Club- their gunner, on the first day, was taking potshots at me from over 800 yards and even scored a hit." You leave out the bit about the shot bouncing off the turret at that range and how they were immediately spotted and taken out afterwords. "They've also got a great mind for using ambushes, distractions and terrain to their advantage. Seems they were born for the StuG life." You joke with a grin."And what about the Panzer IV?" Holly says- "Miho's command tank?">"Pz.IV's an excellent tank- probably the best on the team besides 'Jack">"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them.">"Miho's an excellent tank commander and she has experience with the Mk. IV.">Other.
>>28465631>"Miho's an excellent tank commander and she has experience with the Mk. IV."It's not better than the Excelsior.
>>28465631>>"Pz.IV's an excellent tank- probably the best on the team besides 'Jack">>"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them.">>"Miho's an excellent tank commander and she has experience with the Mk. IV."I think this deserves all three. Perhaps mention that she kicked our ass in our first battle.
>>28465631>"Pz.IV's an excellent tank- probably the best on the team besides 'Jack">"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them.">"Miho's an excellent tank commander and she has experience with the Mk. IV."
>>28465631>>"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them."Point out that the driver is a fucking savant and that the loader knows more about tanks than you do!
>>28465631>"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them."We have the best gunner though.
>>28465631>"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them."
>>28465631>[x] "Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them."
>>28465631>"Anglerfish team are probably the overall best crew among them.">Other.Suspicious that she is a SCOUT!!!! - - - Add in a joke about Anglerfish's crew member scouting that school that one time during the tournament. See how she reacts.
So yeah, I now have every tank in World of Tanks from the Girls und Panzer anime that you can get.It took a long time. Now if only Black Jack could post faster....
>>28466296Even the Maus?
>>28466296I tried doing that, all I still have now is the Stug, the Tigers, Pz4, and a Pershing.
>>28466318Even the Maus. Last one to get was teh Jagdtiger actually.>>28466322It's been a good 8 months at least
>>28466322>>28466296I still need the IS and SU 100 and the t9 and 10 germans.My Tiger II's got back bitch!
>>28466296I don't think I have the patience/dedication for that.I just want the WT Ground Forces beta.
You smile, nodding. "Anglerfish- our command crew." You say. "The Panzer IV, with the exception of our Pershing, is probably the most capable tank on the team- there's a damn good reason that it was the only German tank in continuous production throughout World War II. It's got an excellent balance of speed, firepower and armor- it was perhaps one of the most successful tank designs of the war." You pause and take a breath."As for the crew? I would consider them, overall, the best trained and most dangerous crew on the team-" You pause and smile. "Barring Grizzly, of course. Got to give my crew their due, but they've been at this for a year and a half while most of Anglerfish's crew has had less than a month.""What do you think makes them so effective?" Holly asks quietly."Miho." You say instantly. "Miho's leadership has allowed that crew to flourish, even compared to the rest of the team. So far her team has been the only crew able to disable Black Jack in combat- and they did that on their first day." You nod to yourself- you don't even feel that embarassed by that fact anymore. "That is not to say that Yukari, Saori, Hana and Mako aren't great crew by themselves, but Miho brings them together and brings out the best in them, which is ultimately what a Commander's most important job is."Holly nods as she listens to your answer, silently penning along in her notebook. "I see- I think that's all I need today, Commander." She says, finally closing her notebook."That's it?" You say, surprised that it was already over. "Wait... All you need today?"Holly smiles as she opens the gunner's hatch. "Yep! I'm going to be staying through the tournement- there's a bigger story here than just one crew." She says with a smile. "This is going to explode- in a good way- and I want to make sure I'm right where I need to be to get that story out to the world!"
BJ is getting slow again....

Can't have a Kay thread without this image
>>28463807It was actually projected to be as fast as the Tiger, with a top speed of 25 MPH
>>28466540>We're not afraid of someone.Oh boy, speculation? Big sis shenanigans?
>>28466624It would be about the time for it, yes.
>>28466540Are we ever going to fight in tanks again? I think I'd like it if we could.
>>28466486>Oorai brings in foreign talent>St. Gloriana brings in foreign talent>Koala Academy bring in foreign talentSheesh, this really is going to explode. Everyone's bringing in the foreign goods.
>>28466706Bets on who's the next to bring in some foreign crews? Pravda most likely.
>>28466751Drinking with a Russian all male crew during the lull in the Pravda match
>>28466833They tell us many story of what tanks is like in Vladivostok, their home, while we drink vodka by the fire.
>>28466751I'd actually think the Italians. They could do with some help.Although of what kind I couldn't being to imagine. If we have to keep to country images then the only way they could get decent tanks would be to rely on foreign tanks gifted to the Italian royalist army when they defected except I don't know if that actually happened.
>>28465605Just the 10% that every other tank gets.Only benefits are more credits earned and dirt-cheap repairs...well that and the crew training.
>>28466905Semovente 75/34s and 105/25s would give them the punch they need to hurt things. Even if they are just ghetto StuGs and StuHs.
>>28466587I... don't remember that outfit being in the anime.
>>28466929The one premium tank I always recommend to people is the Exclesior. It's the most fun I ever had with any tank so far. I like my Super Pershing too, but that's kind of an acquired taste. Or Stockholm syndrome.
>>28466706>Senshado: Pride of the Japanese!>By the way, we're accepting foreign exchange students now.
>>28467124I would comment on the Excelsior not being that great, but then I roll around in a Löwe with my KT crew in it.
>>28467124I was the same way- in fact my SP was the reason that this quest was about a Pershing- I gave up the ghost a few weeks after 8.8 when I got into a dagger fight with a Tiger I and lost because he put 6 shots in a row through my Upper Frontal Glacis without a single bounce- all my skills in juking and turret bobbing to cover my weak-points didn't mean squat against a Tier VII.Shameful what WG did to to the SP- took what was at one time a pretty fun tank and absolutely crippled the one thing that made it work, while giving it trivial buffs to mobility. They didn't even have the balls to call it what it really was- they kept referring to it as a "rebalance."On the other hand, 9.0 and the Havok engine are supposed to include a feature where spaced armor gets shot away after a while, so maybe this was just a pre-nerf to get everyone to stop playing the SP before 9.0 *really* kills the poor thing.
