> Tuesday, September 17th, 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.You rouse yourself to a new day, Wednesday to be precise. You check your phone, and yep there’s a text message from Nancy about the Pool party today. Excellent. Tanks can wait for today, because it’s time to rest and relax at the pool!You hop out of bed and head to the shower. A good shower’s always good for waking you up and keeping you clean. Man, your thoughts seem to like obvious statements. But regardless, showers are great, can’t beat them. You finish off your shower and dry yourself off.For today, you forget the underwear and decide on wearing your two-piece bathing suit underneath the white button down shirt of your school uniform and that black skirt. Multi-purpose at its finest.You also get breakfast sorted out for yourself, and then pack up a few things you might need, laptop, a few copies of Doc Savage, other things for casual rest, and a good towel for yourself.So, what do you want to do first?> Get your staff together> Wake Kitten> Other
>>28697005Let's go wake Kitten up
>>28697005> Get your staff together> OtherCall Mr.Miksha to get the Sentental to Comp.Spec and equip the Churchill's LJA as well.Also get pick up the newspaper
>>28697005>> Wake KittenBetter brace ourselves for Pool puns today.
>>28697005>http://pastebin.com/Ac5gJdwqThe Bergepanzer hasn't finished changing into a stug yet?
>>28697148Conversions usually take a day unless otherwise prompted.
Glad the merchants took the Sentinel instead of the delinquints. As funny as putting the delinquints in the Aussie tank is, there's five of em, and the ACIII and up only have room for four.
> Wake KittenYou head out of your dorm and head down to Kitten’s dorm. You knock on the door. “Kitten! Time for a Pool Party!” You continue knocking. Hm. No answer. Fine then.Instead of kicking the door like you usually do, you simply pull out the Sophomore Dorm Master Key. You actually had this since school started but hell, now seems like a good time to use it. You unlock Kitten’s door and walk right in. “Kitten! Wake up, wake up, wake up!”Kitten is lying in bed, staring up at the ceiling. You must have just woken her up. She says, “Go away.”“Oh come on, you’re not gonna let that bathing suit gather dust like that, are you?”“Yes.”You walk over, pull the covers off, then simply carry Kitten into the shower and get her all fresh and neat for the day.“Why do I have to wear my bathing suit underneath?”You simply say, “Because.”Kitten ends up decked out in her one piece bathing suit, and on top she wears her school uniform. You almost wanted her to get that sundress on but an angry Kitten is nothing to shake a leaf at.Kitten crosses her arms, pouting. “Why do I have to go?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28697219I wish they could have taken the Panzer 4 though
>>28697242> PoliteIt will be good for her, get some sun, make some friends. She can just hang out with the crew if she doesn't want to be a social butterfly.Also, delicious, probably Nancy-grilled, BBQ.
>>28697242>BoastIT'S FUN!>>28697245We can reassign them if it's that big of a deal. IIRC, we can reassign anyone.
>>28697242> Boast>“Why do I have to go?”Because it'll be fun!>>28697245We could bust them down to the Panzer IV, if they still screw-up with the Panther.Can't aim with a high velocity gun, and complaints about the shell weight might be enough to get them sorted back to basics.Gotta learn to walk before you run and all that.Might take a morale hit though.
>>28697315The panther and Pz.IV both have the same sized shells, I think. The difference between high and low velocity ammo is probably the amount of propellant, though in the end they'll end up with roughly similar guns.Don't we get the option to upgrade the sentinel to mark II, Schteel? I hate the 25pdr more than I should. It's a field artillery piece that has no place in tank warfare!
> Boast“Because it’ll be fun, Kitten! You get to relax out in the sun for once! Get your skin wet and soaked with all kinds UV-rays from the Sun. It’s not healthy staying inside all the time!”Kitten rolls her eyes. “Okay, Mom.”“Plus, you get to hang out with the other crews, maybe they have something in common with you. Maybe Marina and her friends play War Thunder or something.”Kitten simply shrugs at that. Eh, no convincing her otherwise. You get some breakfast in her real quick with some good healthy cereal. You and Kitten then head outside and bask in the morning sun. Sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, and actually pretty damn hot out. Perfect weather for a pool party.You’re sure since you say that now, that maybe it’ll start raining. Whatever, enough tempting fate. Time for Pool!The ground shakes a bit then you realize it’s the Sherman pulling. Lisa, Ramirez, and Nancy are turned out of the hatches. Nancy asks you, “Ready to go?”> Y/N> Other
>>28697468We remember to Slip Slop Slap?Slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat? Cancer is bad news, you know.
>>28697463Was there a mark two, I've been trying to search for it but with no luck?>>28697468YOtherToday's newspaper day right?
>>28697468>> YLET'S GO
>>28697468>Y> OtherLast minute call to Mr. Mishka for getting the Sentinel comp spec'd and LJ installation?Though I swear it's queued up already with the StuG III being the first one in progress.
>>28697541There was. It's exactly the same as the ACI but with a 6pdr gun
>>28697590Then might as well just buy a 6pdr gun for it later.
>>28697598For now let's keep the LJA/2pdr until they get used to it.
http://www.mheaust.com.au/Aust/Research/Sentinel/sentinelmk.htmfor all your sentinel needs. Probably the most accurate source of Sentinel info on the net.
> Y“Sure thing. Let’s saddle up!”You and Kitten hop aboard the turret, then Lisa pulls the Sherman out onto the street and forward. Nancy looks positively giddy. “This is going to be so much fun, I’m sure of it!”You smile. “Gotta say, Nancy, it’s been ages since I’ve been to a proper party!”Ramirez says, “Is that because you’ve never been invited to a party?”“… maybe.”Kitten crosses her arms. “Well, let’s just get this stuff over with. I’d like to get back to tanks at some point.”“Don’t worry, Kitten!” You suddenly remember the ITL email. “ITL emailed me, says not only do we qualify for the World Cup, but we’re also invited to a little get together up in England! All kinds of teams and tanks are gonna be there!”“That’s great!” says Nancy. “I can’t wait to meet new people, it’ll be a blast, I’m sure!”Lisa says, “Well, what kinds of people do you think are gonna be there, Boss?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28697623> PoliteWe won't know until we get there.
>>28697623> BoastBig people and small people and dumb people and smart people and nice people and bad people and pretty people and ugly people and weak people and strong people and...
>>28697623> PoliteWell, it's England.
>>28697623>> Boastjudging by our happy little band of misfits, anyone and everyone
>>28697598The 6pdr is probably the best stopgap until we can convert it properly into an ACIV, which involves a new turret and changing the frontal armour in addition to the 17pdr.I'm wondering what other mods we could add to it eventually. They always wanted to give the thing a 400hp pratt & whitney radial, but there never were any to spare.Those hundred extra horses would do wonders for the thing. It only gets around 10hp/ton right now, and that's fucking HORRIBLE. Barely enough to climb a flight of stairs.
> Polite“Oh I’m sure it’ll be nothing but nice people there, Lisa. It’s England after all! They got their politeness and their teas and their stiff upper lips and shit like that.”Nancy says, “That’s stereotypical!”You say, “It’s a stereotype that has some factual basis!”Anyway, with that done, you arrive at the school’s swimming pool. It is a very large pool that could be used in the Olympics if needed. It’s not needed now though because you and your Tankery crew have some need of it.The Sherman pulls into the parking lot. All of you dismount and head in. Like Nancy expected, the pool’s pretty much empty today. All kinds of people just vacationing in Casablanca, getting their feet and everything else sticky with sand.Not so at the pool.You spot O’Hara and O’Brian in red one pieces with white trim. Lifeguards you assume. They wave at you, and you wave back.So, what do you want to do now?> Help Nancy set things up> Talk with someone (Specify)> Teach Kitten how to swim> Other
>>28697802>Teach Kitten how to swimMaybe cop a feel or two
>>28697802> Talk with someone (Lifeguards)Gotta hear their thoughts on the party. Then> Help Nancy set things upSwimming comes later.
>>28697802>> Talk with someone (Specify)O'Hara and O'Brian
>>28697802>> Teach Kitten how to swimwell, offer, at least.We did say.Though really al you need to teach anyone to do is the mushroom float. Once you're confident that you won't drown learning to swim is a lot easier.
>>28697802>Talk with someone (O'Hara and O'Brian)
Are we lesbian or not.
>>28697802>> Teach Kitten how to swim>>28697850We kittensexual
>>28697802>Other>Rub sunscreen on each other's backsGotta stay sun safe~
>>28697850Despite all their efforts, the /u/-Boot stays strong!Also, we decide on a case-by-case basis
>>28697802>> Talk with someone (Lifeguards)or help Nancy
>>28697802> Teach Kitten how to swim
>>28697802 #> Teach Kitten how to swim
>>28697884I honestly don't care at this point but that/u/-boat term is seriously making me want to throw a depth charge at it.
>>28697802> Talk with someone (O'Hara and O'Brian)So they can sideline as lifeguards? Neat.They won't be too fun curbing at the pool, will they?Oh yeah, can't wait for Octavia to arrive to see if she got O'Hara casted for the play.
>>28697900Go ahead and try, we are unsinkable.Just like the Bismarck!
>>28697904Who was the third one, was she from the naval studies or rifle club?>>28697913That doesn't mean you have to be obnoxious about it. The only thing you're going to do is make people hate us even more, kind of like Sylvie
>>28697913>Bismarck!Didn't that ship got destroyed by outdated bi-planes?
>>28697762Continuing this thought, my dirtiest sentinel wet dream involves putting a rolls-royce meteor inside one.SIX. HUNDRED. HORSEPOWER. Gives it the same p/w as the cromwell, with better protection and a 17 fucking pounder. Glorious sentinel is glorious.
> Teach Kitten how to swimWith that, you and Kitten strip off your clothes and immediately head into the warm water. You stay on the shallow end, allowing Kitten some leg room in learning how to float. You place your arms underneath Kitten’s chest as she lies forward on the water.“Alright, Kitten, all you have to do is kick and use your arm your arms to propel. Maintain a good rhythm, otherwise you’ll sink.”Kitten nods nervously. “Alright…”“Now, I’m gonna let go.”You let go, and Kitten immediately sinks to the bottom.O’Hara blows her whistle and points to the water. “WE GOT A SINKER!” She and O’Brian immediately dive into the water, and under a minute, reach Kitten. They immediately surface, bringing Kitten out with them.Kitten coughs up chlorine and water. “T-This swimming shit sucks!”You sigh. What are you going to do.> Keep trying> Go and relax> Help Nancy> Talk with someone (Specify)> Other
>>28697934That's kinda the joke.Such a shame for a ship named after the greatest political mind of the late 19th century.Still though, straight-washing us with that Eugene incident was mean
>>28697936I don't think we're allowed to do such upgrades though. Historical value and something.I want to outfit the M5A1 with a 47 mm gun/ Or get a heavily modified ft-17....not sure why?
>>28697952>Ask her if she wants to keep trying>Talk to the lifeguardsWhat? She's not gonna want to keep trying.
>>28697952>Keep tryingWhat are you Kitty, a pussy?[laugh-track]
>>28697952>> Help Nancy
>>28697967I like this, let's go with this
>>28697924>Who was the third one, was she from the naval studies or rifle club?Aviator member looking to play as the shot down American pilot. Really fits the glove right there.The Rifles will eventually provide gun props and maybe play as extras.>>28697952Seconding this >>28697967If Kitten had enough of swimming lessons, time to go do something else.
>>28697967So make her keep trying. She has to be able to swim by the time this gets into full gear
>>28697959I can dream. And change the rules in my own little writefaggotry.The pratt & whitney should be fine, though. They had always planned to use those.>>28697952Why'd the lifeguards come to help when we were literally standing right there?>Keep trying
>>28697952> Keep trying
>>28698022That might not even be doable...
>>28697005So I just caught up on what I missed yesterday.On one hand, I am incredibly pissed we handed the fucking Panther to the delinquents and not the Sentinel. On the other hand, this week's tank selection is AMAZING. If nothing else, GET THE T-34 CHASSIS. Hopefully the Pershing and KV-1 as well, and DO IT SOON. Delivery times are a bitch.
>>28698053I learned swimming in under an hour as a wee little lad, a teenage grill shouldn't have any problems doing so
>>28698035Was there any experiments with of equiping a Stuart with a bigger gun, I heard the Chinese had with the 47mm but not sure if it was during or post war.
>>28698053Doesn't mean you give up. Swimming is easy
>>28698012Damn straight. If we gave up on kitten every time she messed up something this simple we wouldn't have anyone to tease.Mushroom float so she doesn't have to worry about sinking.
>>28698074Well sure, but it changes from person to person. Personally I'm naturally buoyant and only really had to learn how to move/move efficiently. But others have a hell of a time.
>>28698092Unless you're literally retarded or eat stones for breakfast everyone can float.
>>28698060I guess I'll trust you anon, tank battles may be fun but actual tanks interest me zero.
> Keep trying> Talk with O’Hara and O’Brian“So, O’Hara, O’Brian, what makes you two lifeguards today?”O’Hara shrugs. “Eh, Nancy asked and we had nothing better to do, it is Shore Leave you know.”O’Brian says, “Well that’s because you don’t have friends, Megan.”“YOU CUNT I’LL-“ O’Hara is interrupted by a splash from the indifferent O’Brian. “AAHH!”“Anyway,” you say. “Think you two can help out Kitten?” All three of you look over at Kitten, who’s wringing her hair of water and chlorine.O’Hara crosses her arms. “Well, I’ll see what we can do.” She walks over to Kitten and grabs her wrists. “Now, Kitten, the proper way to do a front crawl is to take your arms like this,” She starts moving Kitten’s arms in the proper manner of a front crawl. “Along with kicking your legs in proper motion- WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU LAUGHING O’BRIAN?”O’Brian says, “Because you’re a dyke.”“I’M TEACHING SOMEONE HOW TO SWIM!”> Keep teaching Kitten how to swim> Help out Nancy> Go and relax> Talk to someone (Specify)> Other
>>28698060Pershing's not Tankery legal.
>>28698118> Keep teaching Kitten how to swim> Let the lifeguards go away to do lifeguard things
>>28698092>But others have a hell of a time.True enough. I remember doing the German swimming badge in gold when I was 9 while others had trouble even swimming 100 meters.Might be because I grew up near the sea, but yeahSage for off-topic
>>28698118>> Keep teaching Kitten how to swim
>>28698075There were tank destroyer variants of the stuart, and some with 3-inch howitzers. Those were open topped though. The breech is probably too big for closed top turrets.>>28698060The Sentinel will eventually only have a crew of four once we upgrade it, which means we'll have to cut a member. Also, if we're really unhappy with their choice we can still bump them back to the Panzer IV.
>>28698137We have the option of converting it, all we need to do is replace the gun.And the gun is worth A LOT. We can sell it to museum for a tidy sum of cash.
>>28698118> Help out Nancy
>>28698167>And the gun is worth A LOT. We can sell it to museum for a tidy sum of cash.Why would a museum buy a gun without a tank?
>>28698164So the m5a1 is at a dead end in terms of conversions or upgrades?
>>28698183Because it's one of two ever made?
>>28698167If we do that, I'd like to put in Trude's crew and make it our carry tank.
>>28698106I can tread water, but I'm so thin that I have no bouyancy at all.
>>28698118> Help out NancyNot with the cooking of course, just setting stuff up.We don't want a disaster zone in the pool now.
>>28698106I can't float but I can still swim
>>28698118>Keep teaching Kitten how to swimWhere is your resolve?Where is your dedication?
>>28698167I say we put it on our wish list. it seems like it will take a lot of time money and investment. Not to mention if I recall the pershing had a bad transmission
>>28698118> Keep teaching Kitten how to swim
>>28698118> Keep teaching Kitten how to swimFine then, let's keep at it.Also man, O'Brian and O'Hara really don't have a very healthy relationship huh...
>>28698238For what exactly?it's just swimming
>>28698260>For what exactly?>it's just swimmingJUST SWIMMING?Now you listen here, this kind of attitude spills over into everything.Do we want our Kitty to become a lazy slacker?
>>28698191Unfortunately so!>>28698245It's underpowered, actually. 10hp/ton, much like the Sentinel. Makes it horrible at climbing even the slightest inclines, gives it horrible accelaration, and means you can't use it to tow anything.
>>28698279A-menKeep fucking swimming
>>28698279I just want her to socialize besides gertude and the sewing club, she doesn't interact with anyone else. If anything let's have her socialize with others.Also are there any upgrades or variants for the Souma?
>>28698245Remember, it takes a WEEK for the thing to deliver in the first place.
>>28698334>If anything let's have her socialize with others.Nothing like a near-death-experience to make you re-evaluate the priorities in your life.Let's have Kitty almost drown pl0x
> Keep teaching Kitten how to swim“Right, just lie back, and keep your arms out like so.”You place your arms underneath Kitten as she attempts to float on her back. Kitten looks up at you, nervous. “I’m going to die here, aren’t I?”“No, I’ve got you, just relax. That’s the important part of swimming. Fight the ocean and you’ll drown.”Kitten sighs and looks back up at the sky. “Whatever.”“Right,” You get ready to release her. “You ready?”“Yeah, ready to drown.”“I’ll take that as a yes.”You let go of Kitten. To your utter surprise, she is indeed floating. “Kitten! You’re floating!”“I am? Awesome!” She raises her hands in triumph, then immediately sinks.Well, that was short lived.You and Kitten sit on the edge of the pool, idly kicking your legs into the water. Kitten sighs, crossing her arms, a towel around her shoulders. “Well, I was floating for a few seconds.”“Yeah,” You rustle her wet hair a bit. “We can stop there if you’d like.”> Help out Nancy> Go and relax> Talk to someone (Specify)> Other
>>28698279>Do we want our Kitty to become a lazy slacker?She already is.
>>28698361>> Help out Nancy
>>28698227Somehow you're doing it wrong, just lie on your back breath easy and relax with your arms and legs spread out like a starfish.Humans are naturally buoyant.
>>28698366And she will stay that way if we don't show her what dedication and RESOLVE are
>>28698361> Help out Nancy
>>28698361> Help out NancyI'm guessing Lisa and RAMIREZ has been doing this already.
>>28698334http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOMUA_S35#Projects>>28698383My legs sink
>>28698334German is it possible for the Souma to be converted into a Sau40, once the conversion package is available?
>>28698383Mushroom float. Arms around your legs, head down and you'll always naturally float up. Break the float, stick your head above water, grab a breath of air, then rinse and repeat.Congratulations, you will now never drown, even if you can't do the traditional float.
>>28698483The Sau40 was a singular prototype, so if the conversion does come up, it'll probably be stupidly expensive.
>>28698519Probably something we should look into if we become stupidly rich.
> Help out Nancy“Hey, Nancy, need my help with anything?”Nancy nods. She’s already clad in a nice little blue bikini underneath her apron. “Sure! Would you bringing out some of stuff from the Sherman? That’d be great!”You nod. “Of course!”You head out to the Sherman and see the cooler and stuff like umbrellas, bags of towels, the like secured to the top of the engine block. Huh, you didn’t notice that this morning. Oh well. You quickly unsecure the stuff and start bringing the stuff in. You set the cooler down, you set the ggrille down next to Nancy, you start laying out the towels along the pool, you start unfolding umbrellas, and lastly you hand Nancy some sun tan lotion. You wipe your brow, exhausting work that was. Where the hell is Ramirez when you need her?“Thanks, President!” says Nancy. At least she’s grateful.You sit down on a towel, sighing with relief. Then you hear the familiar engine sound of the Churchill IV. You look over and see the Freshmen dismounting the Churchill and heading in, ready for some pool party action.Cathy greets you. “Hey, Gertrude! What’s up?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28698574Boast, we helped kitten learn to float
>>28698574...where IS Ramirez?> Polite
>>28698574> Polite>>28698608...where IS Ramirez?Picking up Octavia?They're in the same class after all, so who knows?

>>28698574>PoliteParty's only just getting started.Sentinelfag is going to pass out now. Make sure to get some sunscreen rubbing action in at some point. Gotta stay sunsafe.
> Polite“Hey, girls, not much. Just doing pool party things!”Cathy nods, sitting down next to you. “That’s great! You know, it’s real nice of you and Nancy to get this pool party thing together.”“Of course, it was Nancy’s idea, I just supported it.”“Yeah, hope we don’t mind bringing Earl out here though, see you’ve brought the Sherman though.”You nod, smiling. “Yeah, yeah… who’s Earl?”“The Churchill,” She points over to the Churchill. You squint your eyes and see small white lettering on the turret, labeling it “Earl.”You quirk your brow. “You named your tank?”Cathy giggles, blushing a little. “Oh, yeah… Well, the girls all agreed it needed a name, you know? You name yours?”You shake your head. “Nah, hadn’t thought of it actually.”“Well,” Cathy says, “it’s bad luck not to name a ship when you take out it into the water. At least, that’s how Andrea justified it when we decided on naming the Churchill.”> CHURCHILL IV IS NOW NAMED “EARL”> Note: Teams will becoming particularly attached to their assignments, such that names will become common. You can name your tank too when you particularly feel like it.> Relax> Play around in the water> Get some suntan lotion on> Talk with someone (Specify)> Other
>>28698738Play in the waterNo time for lotion we tanning now
>>28698738>> Note: Teams will becoming particularly attached to their assignments, such that names will become common. You can name your tank too when you particularly feel like it.We shouldn't have given the delinquents the fucking Panther.
>>28698738> Get some suntan lotion onNaturally this comes first. Sunburn can go to hell.
>>28698738>> Get some suntan lotion on>>28698755That'll be a while. The Freshman have always been attached to their tank.
>>28698755That takes time. Don't worry bout it.
>>28698738>Put suntan lotion on Kitten
>>28698776It hasn't even been two weeks.And the sooner we take them off it, the less chance they get to be attached to it. There's a perfectly good Panzer IV in the garage.
>>28698747DO YOU WANT CANCER?!>>28698755Swap them to the Panzer IV before they get attached.One more update, I say, then I'll sleep, I say.
>>28698738>> Get some suntan lotion on
>>28698794We can always get another goddamned tank for the Aces, it's not like we're anywhere close to getting them anyways. Why gimp the team by letting it sit
Just putting it out there that maybe Fredendall will use the delinquents to sabotage the tankery team and its efforts from within since the offer did come from her cronies...
>>28698820We because we don't know when we can get a tank suitable for the Aces, and in any case the delinquents are pretty much the team that least deserves it.
>>28698850I think we should run the tank and hopefully get the delinquents to give a shit. The aces aren't going anywhere and we're going to get more and better tanks as we go.
> Get some suntan lotion on“Hey, Kitten, come over and I’ll get this suntan lotion on you.”Kitten comes over and sits down, thus you squirt a bit into your hands, rub them together, then start rubbing them on Kitten’s shoulder. “So, Kitten, enjoying yourself?”“No.”You start running the lotion down her arms. You frown, “Oh, why not?”“Well, I’m still at square one with swimming, there’s still no one I can effectively talk to except you and I’m actually kind of hungry.”“Oh, don’t worry.” You squirt a bit into your hands and start working on Kitten’s legs. “You know, Nancy’s got a grille, we might get some very good burgers out here.”“Eh…”You finish off Kitten’s legs, then turn her around and start spreading the lotion around on her face, neck, and the other areas around her swimsuit. “Alright, that should be you done.” You smirk. “Unless you want more…?”“No thanks.”“Good, now do me.”Kitten starts working on your exposed skin. “You know, I overheard you talking with Cathy about naming the tank.”“Yeah, what of it?”“We gonna name our tank?”> Y/N> Other
>>28698850Just because we don't know doesn't mean to that you should assume we won't. As for the delinquents, what kind of shitty leader would give up on them after a single practice session, and only a horrible leader would purposefully gimp her team, that is trying to save the entire school, so that she can set aside a good tank not to be used. Just because you might not like them doesn't mean you try to give them something worse, you keep trying.
>>28698904>I think we should run the tank and hopefully get the delinquents to give a shit.First they have to prove they deserve being given a shit. And in any case a Panzer IV is a pretty good tank with the long 75.>The aces aren't going anywhere and we're going to get more and better tanks as we go.[CITATION NEEDED]
>>28698910>YAnybody have any ideas?
>>28698920We should take the Pz. IV for ourselves. It'll be better than the shitman we're in now.
>>28698910>If the other girls want to. It should be a team effort!
>>28698941Normally, I'm all in favour of Panzer IV over Shermans, but we have an option to make the M4 a Jumbo. More than that, Jumbo with 76 mm on it.You dig what I dig?
>>28698738> Get some suntan lotion on
>>28698968I'd rather upgrade the Pz. IV personally. The gun options are a lot better. Depends on the cost of the upgrades for both tanks, we should look into that first.
>>28699001A tougher command tank is better than a shooty command tank.
>>28698910NWe need to get suggestions from our teammates first. personally, I want to name it Patton
>>28698910We really should get Kitten closer to the rest of the crew at least. Others is harder to 'force' as it were, but the crew needs to be tight.
>>28698850Should have bought the 100 Dollar tank and made it the home of team "call me a lesbian one more goddamn time you bitch"
>>28699001I wouldn't say that gun options are THAT better.
>>28699001Yeah, the stub 75 has to be replaced if nothing else.Tack on a Schurzen kit, too.
>>28698941I agree with this maybe talk to are staff and kitten about switching to it
>>28699047There are better option for a Schurzen kit.Like one of our heavy tanks.
>>28698910> OtherSee what the rest of our tank crew thinks about naming our tank.
>>28699036No. No. Fuck no. Again, no.It's not driveable in any legal configuration, it injures its users, and it's only that cheap because whoever was the owner needed to clear some garage space. It would end up taking up garage space and never doing anything.
> ?You shrug. “I dunno. I’m not even particular sure what we should name our tank honestly.”Kitten says, “I’m preferential for In The Mood.”You look at her funny. “… What?”“Hey,” she shrugs. “Names don’t have to make sense you know.”You sigh. “Of course. You done.” She splats lotion on your face, causing you to flinch.Kitten grins. “Now I am.”With that, you hear the sound of the KV-1S and the M5A1 Stuart arriving. The Aviators and the Poles dismount and head in, greeting everyone like the Freshmen, Nancy, and finally you.“Hey, Gertrude,” says Marina. “I see you’re having some fun!”Janek strips off her shirt, revealing her red bikini. “Girls! INTO THE POOL!”The Poles all strip off their clothes, revealing their swimsuits. They all dive in and start playing.Marina sits down next to you. “So, what’s up, Gertrude?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28699143>> BoastFun in the sun.

>>28699143> BoastJust some happy, relaxing fun times.And their fellow aviator has a good chance of landing the part in the play.Also...>In The MoodWell, it had to be brought up sooner or later due to naming references.
> Boast“Relaxing, fun in the sun, fun in the water, fun everywhere!”Marina nods. “Of course. Gotta say, thanks for the Pool party and everything. It’s real nice of you.”You shrug. “Oh, don’t thank me, thank Nancy. She dreamed this stuff up.”“Did she?” She points to Nancy, currently stacking up some patties. “She cook good?”“Very good. It’s like eating a piece of heaven.”Marina smirks. “I’ll take your word for it. Gotta say though, can’t remember the last time I went to the pool.”“Neither can I.”Marina stands up and then pulls her shirt off, revealing her white one piece. “Anyway, gonna have some fun with the girls.

> Talk to someone (Team Wojtek)“Hey, Janek, hey girls.”Janek surfaces, creating a giant splash of water. She looks over at you, smiling. “Hey, Gertrude! Lovely of you to organize a pool party for all of us!”You wave her off. “Nancy’s idea! I’m just supporting her!”Gussie swims over, “It’s real nice to have the pool all to ourselves though! It’s a real treat!”George also says, “I think we can agree that it is awesome to have this pool party!”“I think we came to that conclusion a while ago, George,” says Janek. “Anyway, thanks again for the pool! When’s the World Cup coming up?”“Early October, so that means we have a few weeks to practice and such.”Janek pumps her fist. “We’ll be ready!”With that, more tanks arrive. The SU-122 and the SOMUA S35. The Rifle Team and the Sewing Club have arrived. Anna waves over at you, and you immediately notice all the Sewing Club members are wearing incredibly nice hats for the sunny weather.“We’ve arrived!” says Anna.Samantha says, “We’re ready to get wet!” With that, the Rifle Team immediately strip off their clothes and jump in, joining in with the Aviators and the Poles.Anna rolls her eyes. “Uncivilized.” She looks over at you, smiling. “How are you doing, Gertrude?

Excellent choice of swimsuit!”You shrug. “My idea.”She points to yours. “Oh, I love your choice as well, compliments your figure.”You wave her off, blushing a little. “Oh, I’m not anything to shake a stick at, Anna, honestly!”Bess says, “Don’t be so modest, I think you have a lovely body.”Mamie also says, “I agree. You look lovely.”Okay girls, that’s enough, please. You giggle nervously. “Yeah, yeah…” you say.Lisa surfaces out of the water on Ramirez’s back. “It’s time for some water sports! Hey, Boss! Get the girls together, let’s do some cavalry battles!”You nod. “Righto!” You quickly snatch up Kitten, much to her surprise.“Whoa! What the fuck are you doing!?”“No time to explain!” You quickly jump into the pool, Kitten thrown over your shoulder. “You’re going to be horseman, Kitten!”Which team do you fight first?> Team Wojtek> Team Needlepoint> Team Bearcat> Team Not-a-chance-in-hell> Team Minie

> Team Not-a-chance-in-hellCathy, Tara, Ashleigh, and Tabitha all stand to support Andrea. The object of capture shall be Anna’s hats that she brought today.Anna says, “You better not ruin them!”Cathy says, “We won’t lose, will we girls!?”They all say, “No!”You, Lisa, and Ramirez support Kitten. “Why am I doing this!?” shouts Kitten.“Because you’re the lightest,” says you.“You forget that I don’t know how to swim?”“Relax,” you say. “We’re in the shallow end. It’s not like you’re going to drown or anything!”“Gee. Thanks for that reassurance.”Andrea shouts, “Let’s do this!”> Aggressive> Cautious> Defensive

>>28700003> Aggressiveand i bet we'll lose at the first go of it.
> Aggressive“Lisa, Ramirez, TO VICTORY!”All of you shout cries of honor and battle, while Kitten shouts of horror and not wanting to do this. Regardless, the Freshmen respond with their own battle cries, and thus the two teams join battle.“Grab it, Kitten! GRAB IT!” you shout.“I’M TRYING NUMBNUTS!” she responds as she wrestles with Andrea over the hats.Mamie says, “I don’t think it was a good idea bringing our good hats today.”Kitten gets a neat thought, and then when her hands are interlocked with Andrea’s, she pulls on them instead of pushing, causing Andrea to lose her balance. In that ensuing moment, the hat is collected, the Freshmen all tumble to the briny deep.> GERTRUDE’S CREW IS VICTORIOUS“Woohoo! We won!” you shout.The Freshmen all surface.

You shift the horse to the left, hoping to try and catch the Poles off guard. All you’ve really managed to accomplish was shift the playing field.“Ha, scared?” says Janek.Kitten says, “A bit, yes.”Janek grins evilly, “Girls! ADVANCE!” The Poles scream as they charge at you. You quickly shift your horse to the right.Gussie must have had a bad footing, because POLETRON immediately collapses, disqualifying them.> GERTRUDE’S CREW IS VICTORIOUSThe Poles surface.Gussie says, “My fault.”George says, “You know, it just occurred to me that we’re not very smart.”Terry says, “Could be worse.

> Continue fighting“Come at us!” you shout.The Naval Studies Merchant crew plunges into the battle, carrying Wilma Thomas Jr.“Hold on,” you say, “Where’d you guys come from?”Dales says, “We just got here.” Eh, can’t argue with that. Dales screams, “Anchors Aweigh, girls!”All of you charge, then Kitten and Wilma lock hands, wrestling each other for their hats. It’s now at a deadlock.“Come on, Kitten! Grab the hat!”Kitten shouts at you, “Oh shut up!” She quickly pulls her right hand away then tries going for the hat, but not before the Naval Studies Merchant simply backs away. That action almost causes your team to lose their balance.Hm, these guys are tougher than they look.> Aggressive> Cautious> Defensive

>>28700590>AggressiveDon't forget what Baby Cakes taught you
>>28700590Yeah please write us losing sometime... We're approaching mary sue levels of winning and I feel sorry for the other teams, same with that practice match.
>>28700601>>28700636I agree, there seems to be little challenge.I'd rather "load a saved game" than just breeze through everything, including the tournament.
>>28700577What would a vintage tiger cost in the first place?Personally, I'd kill for a VK45.02(P) Ausf. B

>>28700681is it ever built in first place?Except they build a replica from scratch, which may not eligible for tankery

> CautiousYou pull the horse back, trying to find some kind of opening in the Naval Studies Merchant team’s defense.“There’s no use in trying to beat us! We’re Naval Studies!” screams Dales. They immediately charge in, and you slink to the right trying to avoid them. Too late however, as Wilma immediately makes a grab at the hat.Wilma then proceeds to grab it, causing Kitten to flinch and fall right out of your grasp and into the water.“We did it! Naval Studies rules!” they shout.> TEAM LIBERTY IS VICTORIOUSYou dredge Kitten out of the water, and again she’s coughing up water and chlorine.“Well,” she says after a minute. “We lost.”You pat her shoulder. “No shame, it’s all friend anyway.”> Relax> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Other
>>28700703If I recall correctly, schteel said we were extremely close to winning that match
>>28700699First of all, yes. VK45.02(P) tanks were indeed built. I think two of them, could have been one. It/they even saw battle, the enemy reports speaking of a strange Tiger variant. I don't know if this was the A or B variant, but most likely the A. Secondly, replicas are indeed tankery legal.
>>28700577Jaegtiger all the way. But,seriously a casemate would not be the greatest way to exploit the skill.
>>28700740>Other[X]Touch fluffy hairLet's embrace Kitty and tell her that we aren't mad that she brought DEFF AND DEFEAT to us
>>28700740>> Talk to a crew (Specify)Naval Studies
>>28700750Well I may have been mistaken then, but that's how it felt to me, and as far as it being our first battle goes, it made sense so I wasn't really complaining about that one, but all the rest so far just seemed oddly easy. Again, just my opinion here.>>28700760Jagdtiger is built on the Tiger II chassis, not the regular Tiger.
>>28700752...Russian often write all panzer as 'Tiger' so i won't held my breath. And on topic of replica... on blackjack verse he said replica tanks is either rare or nonexistent because it easier to repair one. While thing may differ on GermanSteel verse, i imagine replica will very rare too for same reason.Not to mention i recall there are some wording on official rule that mention necessity for 'original component', but i may be mistaken about this point.

> Relax“Congrats on your victory, girls.” You point at them, smirking a bit. “Next time you won’t be so lucky.”Wilma crosses her arms, triumphant. “Yeah, we’ll see!”You, Lisa, Ramirez, and Kitten sit at the edge of the pool. Team Liberty has taken it upon themselves to start taking down the rest of the teams, Team Minie appears to be the only one with even a ghost of a chance.Kitten says, “Man, they really handed us our ass.”“Well,” says Lisa, “They’re Naval Studies. I wouldn’t be surprised if they do this kind of thing regularly.”“Hey, we had a nice clean fight, and we lost. Can’t argue with that,” you say. “Anyway, Lisa, Ramirez, love your swimsuits.”Lisa is decked out in a yellow two piece similar to yours, while Ramirez has taken up a purple bikini. Lisa waves you off. “Oh stop it.”“Hey, I’m serious. Gotta say, I’m not that much of a fashion connoisseur, but I think you and Ramirez look great.”Ramirez nods, “My boyfriend thinks it looks great.”Lisa looks over at her. “I still can’t believe you forgot you had a boyfriend.”“I had a brain fart that day.”…Lisa sighs. “Of course.”Nancy shouts. “Lunch is ready!”> Get some lunch> Continue relaxing> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Other

> Get some lunchYou head on over and grab a burger from Nancy’s platter. “Thanks, Nancy.” Freshly grilled burgers on a bun with some cheese. Yiss. You take a bite, and immediately you feel like marrying Nancy. “Nancy, these are great!”Nancy nods. “Oh, stop it, it’s just grilled burgers as all!”Take another burger for Kitten to enjoy, and soon you’re back to sitting down on a towel, Kitten next to you digging into her burger as well.Kitten says, “These burgers are great.”“Yeah, I said that already,” says you. “Anyway, Kitten, think you’ve had some fun today?”She shrugs. “Well, cavalry battle was some action, I suppose.”You clap your hands together. “Great!” Once you finish off your burger, you can hear a very loud engine that sounds like a wounded animal. Must be the Panther. You look over and see, yep, the Panther. The Delinquents all dismount and head over to you.“Hey, there,” says Luciano. She looks like she really doesn’t want to be here right now. “We late?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28701092If not with us, probably getting into more trouble. What are the chances they sell the Panther behind our backs or crash it into a water fountain in town?

>>28701189Just in time for lunch, hopefully they didn't get into trouble on the way.

>>28701189> BoastNever too late for parties!
>>28701189> PoliteIn time for lunch at least.Now that the crews are present, where is Octavia anyway? We did give her an open invite. And I thought Ramirez was gone to address that. Huh.
>>28700998rare, yes, but a replica will have no historical value, and most teams are going to buy proper tiger IIs.
>>28701189> Boastwe need to find the delinquents and quick. we might have to use remote control bomb collers on them if they misbehave with the tanks. JOKING!
> Boast“Nah, you’re right on time! Go ahead and grab some of Nancy’s burgers, they’re great!”Luciano shrugs. “Eh, we’ll see.” They go ahead and start relaxing on the towels, apparently pretty apathetic.“Not gonna roll around in the pool some?” you ask.“We’ve come to relax,” says Luciano. “That’s what we’re gonna do.”Kitten looks over at them, then over at you. “I already agree with them.”“Oh, don’t you start,” you say.With that, the party is pretty much in full swing. Your crews, minus you and your staff and the Delinquents are having a ton of fun in the pool, splashing, racing, and in general just having lots and lots of good fun with each other.> Relax> Play in the Pool> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Talk to your crew> Other

> OtherYou stand next to Luciano as she lies down, basking in the sun. “Hey, Luciano.”Luciano tips her sunglasses down, looking at you inquisitively. “Hey, need something?”“Eh, just wanted to talk.”“What about?”You shrug. “Stuff. What exactly makes the five of you delinquents?”Luciano says, “Bad disciplinary records, low grades. In a land high school, the teachers just curb your grades until you graduate so they seem like good teachers. Here on an Academyship, if you fail, by god you fail.”Lansky says, “We all have the most outstanding disciplinary records, they could actually kick us off if they wanted to, but Pinkerton and O’Bannon offered to wipe our records if we did Tankery.”“Which is why,” Luciano says, “We’re doing Tankery.”You nod, scratching your chin. “Well then. I’m sure you at least acknowledge that you gotta work for this kind of stuff right? Tankery isn’t just about tanks you know.”Luciano shrugs. “Yeah, whatever.”O’Hara and O’Brian walk over. “Ah, don’t bother with these losers, Pool. They’ll be off the ship within the month if their record gets past Law Enforcement Studies and into the faculty.”Luciano looks over at O’Hara, smirking. “Well, if it isn’t Lafayette Girls Academy’s cutest couple.”“YOU FUCKING CUNT I’LL-“ O’Brian slaps her hand over O’Hara’s mouth.You sigh. “Look, Luciano. If Tankery is your last chance, then I’m not gonna play nice with you if you don’t play nice with me. Understand?”“Yeah, whatever.”You roll your eyes.

>>28701641No shit, but the point is that the worries are fucking stupid and out of place. They're not going to crash the tank or steal it. All they'll do is act cold
>>28701617> Play in the pool> Talk to a crew (Naval Merchants)Get to know them, what duties do they usually do, small talk stuff.And I'm rather curious about what else is in the bowels of the school ship. I mean, we never did get to fully explore it besides Storage G, right?

>>28701684>They're not going to crash the tank or steal itBetter safe than sorry
>>28701698How exactly would they steal the tank anyway? We're on an Academy-ship and driving around Casablanca, or anywhere else for that matter trying to hawk a tank isn't exactly subtle.
>>28701725They could just sabotage a tank in hundreds of other ways, refuse to take orders during the world cup, and hundreds of other things.Really, I think taking them in was a mistake
>>28701744There's nothing for them in doing that other than pissing us off and getting kicked off the ship. I really think you're over-reacting.
>>28701794>that other than pissing us offYeah, exactly.They didn't join us voluntarily, remember
>>28701744Why sabotage a tank, if they won't take orders why join? Stop being stupid already. I understand you don't like them, but shut up about it already
> Play in the poolYou quickly jump into the pool, submerging yourself. Then you break the surface with all the majesty of a bottlenose dolphin.You’re then hit in the face with a beachball.“Gotta keep your eyes out, Gertrude!” shouts Jenny.You smirk. Your time to shine now. You quickly take up the beachball and spike it up into the air. Everyone shouts that they’re going to catch it, but it ends up being smacked back up into the air by Anna.You see it heading towards you, you quickly clasp your hands together, ready to take this one on. Then Janek suddenly jumps onto your shoulders and spikes the ball out of your path, all without you even feeling a thing.“Janek, how’d you do that!?” you ask.Janek waves you off. “Practice!

> Continue playing in the poolYou slap the beachball back into the air again. It hangs for a few seconds, then is immediately shot into a different direction by a very powerful stream of water. You look over to the source and see Samantha, and the rest of the Rifle Team wielding CPS Super Soakers.“Haha!” laughs, Samantha. “No need to get your hands dirty when you have Constant Pressure System Super Soakers!” She looks over at Natalya. “Natalya, what do you feel when you fire a CPS Super Soaker at the target?”Natalya says, “Recoil.”Katya laughs. “Hey, shoot me with one those things, let’s see how powerful they are.” Katya is immediately shot in the chest, barreling her into the water.“Wow,” says Jenny. “That’s pretty powerful.”Katya surfaces. “I’ll say!”Good thing they came up with that idea, you almost came close to asking them to shoot you.You slap the ball back into the air and immediately Natalya fires again, slamming the ball out of the air and directly into O’Brian’s head.O’Brian wakes up. “What was that!?”O’Hara simply says, “Your life telling you to stop sleeping around you cunt.”> Continue playing in the pool> Go back out and relax> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Talk to your crew> Other
>>28701919Pretty much this. Personally, I just think that they're acting standoffish because they just never had the opportunities to really strut their stuff around.

Well I suppose that’s what’s important.” O’Brian shrugs as some of agreement.You point at each other. “You two board together, right?”O’Brian nods. “Against my better judgement, yes.”“You two are friends, right?” you ask. “I usually see you two together.”They look at each other, then simply shrug. “I suppose,” says O’Hara. “What are you getting at?”You say, “Well, you know, friends don’t make friends unnecessarily angry. O’Brian, maybe you’d cut back on the dyke jokes?”O’Brian says, “I’ll cut back when Megan acknowledges it.”“YOU CUNT!” She picks up a very indifferent O’Brian and throws her into the pool. “I’LL DROWN YOU!” She quickly dives in after her.… Irish.> Play in the pool> Relax> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Talk to your crew> Other

> Talk to your crew“Hey, Nancy,” Nancy has decided to take a dip in the pool. She lies back at the edge, leaning back as the rest of her body floats. “You having fun?”Nancy nods. “All in good fun! I believe Ace said she’d bring dinner around too!”Dinner? But it’s only… 5 O’Clock. Wow.Lisa hops into the pool as well, sighing in relief in the warm water. “Gotta say! This feels great!”Kitten walks over, smiling warmly. “Yeah, I must admit, Trudy. This is fun!”“Yes!” You slap Kitten’s back. “I got you to admit that this is fun! Day over! Let’s go home!”Nancy says, “Still though, it’s nice to relax. We do have practice tomorrow, not to mention Homecoming on Saturday.”Ah, it’s on Saturday. Okay, good.With that, you hear the Chaffee thunder into the parking lot. Octavia, Dizzy, Red, and Ace dismount, bringing picnic baskets of goods. “We’re here!” shouts Ace. “What’s up, Gertrude?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28701744I don't. I think we just need to make the delinquents recon, let them loose and see what carnage they cause we can take advantage of.I think we might want to divide them up between the other teams for training, though. I think they'll benefit a lot from seeing how the other tanks roll.
>>28702535>> BoastFUN IN THE SUN.
> Boast“Fun in the sun, that’s what, Ace!” You and Ace hug it out.Ace puts her hands on her hip, grinning. “Hell of a thing y’all got here! Anyway, if you’ll excuse me…” She quickly runs off and dive bombs into the pool, creating a huge explosion of water. You chuckle and look over at Octavia.“Real good thing you’re doing here, Gertrude. Sorry we couldn’t be here earlier.”You wave her off. “Ah, it’s fine. You’re here now, that’s what matters.”Octavia says, “Anyway,” she holds up a picnic basket. “We brought some dinner, if you want some?”“Sure! What’d you bring?”“Ham sandwiches, pork, more of that palmetto cheese, grapes, watermelon, that kind of stuff.”“Sweet!”> Grab some dinner> Play in the pool> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Talk to your crew> Other

> Grab some dinnerYou and Kitten and few other girls pick up their dinners. A ham sandwich does its job for you and Kitten. You decide to strike up conversation with Octavia.“So, Octavia, you and Ace have a lot of fun lately?”Octavia smiles, nodding. “Yep! Got to visit around Casablanca, not to mention see Robert A. Heinlein Academyship. You know, Robert A. Heinlein isn’t just an Academyship, it’s a fully functioning Naval base with its own garrison. It’s crazy!”You nod. “17 Kilometers of freedom and apple pie.”“Yep.” She bites into her sandwich as she watches Ace hold her breath against the Sewing Club. “Almost went to Heinlein with her, but decided on Lafayette. Don’t think the military life is for me.”You shrug. “It’s not for everyone.”Kitten says, “Definitely know it’s not for me.” You chuckle as you rustle Kitten’s hair. “Anyway, Octavia, it’s nice of you to help us out with Tankery.”Octavia shrugs. “Oh I haven’t done much. It just doesn’t feel the same without the rest of the crew.”“Of course,” you say. “Think we can get them around to joining us?”Octavia says, “They have to move on at some point.”With that, the sun starts setting on the day. Everyone starts packing up and heading to their tanks, exhausted but feeling rejuvenated and happy. You climb up onto your Sherman and decide a good addressing is in order.> Pathos> Ethos> Logos

>>28703147This, I'm not sure when the next time we'll get such great deals. Sure the Pershing is annoyingly underpowered, but it still packs a good gun and decent armor, and the issue can at least partially mitigated by improving our suspension.

>>28703208I'd buy only the Pershing, we'll have the chance to convert it into our main carry tank for Trude's crew.We also need to comp spec the Sentinel, we'll be left with around 7540$
>>28703126> Head to your place (Invite Kitten and our Sherman crew)Because I dunno if we can fit all of the members here.>>28703147I'll second the KV only for now since the T-34 chassis will be there the entire week, and the Pershing is expensive, vintage and would need to be backgraded to be Tankery legal.We'll still need to save some cash for upgunning the KV-1S and improving the SU, which should really be our priority if we want to win matches.
>>28703126Did we already pay to comp-spec the Sentinel and upgrade the Berg?
> Head to your place (Invite entire crew)You crash open your door and yawn, your crew following you into your dorm. “Man! What a day!” You quickly head into the bathroom and start getting your bathing suit off, until your crew follows you into the bathroom.“… oh right.” You say, “All of us have to get our bathing suits off.”With that, the bathing suits are folded up and packed away, leaving you in your button down shirt and skirt and really nothing else. You lie back on the bed, tired but relaxed. You pull up your laptop and decide to start randomly browsing the internet, while Nancy and Kitten watch some TV. Lisa’s taking a shower to get some of that chlorine out of her hair.“Hey, Kitten, you have fun today?”Kitten nods. “Yeah, Trudy. It’s been fun!”Nancy smiles. “Oh I hope we have days like this again!”“We will,” you reassure, “We will.”Ramirez lies perpendicular to you on the foot of your bed, reading one of your Doc Savage comics. You look over at her. “Enjoying that Doc Savage, Ramirez?”“Yep.”…You sigh. You quickly bring up Tankslist. Those five tanks look delightful.> Buy a tank or two?> Y/N (Specify)> Other
>>28703300>> YBuy the Pershing, then call up Mr. Mishka to comp spec the Sentinel.
>>28703298Yes you did. The Budget's been updated to reflect that if I remember correctly.
>>28703263What? We've already comp speced the Sentinel.>>28703276Even the backgraded Pershing has a gun comparable to the German 88, and we can make some of our money back by selling the gun.
>>28703333Just checking, thank you. >>28703330Already did that.
>>28703350>>28703367Aw shit. Regardless, that Pershing looks pretty delicious.
>>28703263>>28703276Doing some mental math, we just have enough to buy both the Pershing and the KV.Buying the T-34 hull after that should be our next priority.

>>28703147The Pershing isn't Senshado legal in its current form. With a few mods, though, maybe.Should we get it, though, maybe we could take a jab at the other GuP Quest and name it Black Jack?
>>28703392Sweeeeet.Do it then, we should still get some money back through the gun as well.>>28703441Which is why we take out and sell the T54 gun.
>>28703441Not the best idea. Would be a fun little cameo though.
> YYou pull up the KV-1 and the Pershing Tank. Even though the Pershing tank isn’t even legal, it doesn’t hurt to have another American tank at least. Kitten and Lisa look over your shoulder, Kitten because tanks and Lisa because budget.“Yeah,” says Lisa, “we can fit that into the budget.”Kitten nods. “Eh.

>>28703515> YNext stop, the T-34.
>>28703515Eh, what are we gonna do with a KV-1? Its a decent tank, but its not really upgradeable- you'd have to completely replace the chassis as well as the rest.
>>28703535Let's not start making listings when we don't even have the tank yet. Wait until we get the tanks, give them a full inspection, and then we can put up listings.
>>28703561Pretty sure we can convert it to a KV-85 at least.Unless my memory's screwing me over.
>>28703594Pretty sure that's off of the 1S chassis.
>>28703515Yes to the PershingNo to the dirty commie tank
>>28703515> PURCHASE M26E1 PERSHING> YWe won't have enough of a budget to comp spec and backgrade it simultaneously if we purchase the KV as well.I am intimidated by the unknown Comp Spec price, however. But at least we can hand the Sherman to the Poles, and maybe sell the Pershing gun to that Moroccan tank curator.
>>28703515Y to pershing,N to KV-1.
>>28703620Smart anon, let's hold off on the KV-1 for now.
>>28703602Can't that work with the 1S chassis as well? I mean we have the option to turn stuff like the Panther wholesale into casemate tanks after all.
>>28703515>ConfirmPershing, but no KV-1.
>>28703602Considering we can turn stuff like the Panther into their casemate variants, I'm pretty sure it'll be possible.Worst case scenario, we sell it after we discover we don't like it.
>>28703515> PURCHASE M26E1 PERSHING> YNo need to blow everything we've got on two new tanks. One should do it.

A new tank. Granted, it’s not Tankery legal, but hell you can always turn it into something that is.You arch your back, yawning. “So, we’re getting the M26E1 Super Pershing with the experimental post-war T54 gun.”Nancy looks at you skeptically. “Aren’t Pershings kind of shit?”You shrug. “I dunno. I still have a lot to learn about tanks, Nancy. Unlike you, you really picked them fast.”“Oh, well,” she blushes a little. “I did say I’d make it up to you for panicking during our mock battle.”You nod. “And you did.”Kitten looks over at you. “Excited for Practice tomorrow?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28703732>> BoastFUCK YES. WE GOT THE PERSHING.
>>28703732German, is it possible to convert a KV-1 to a KV-85?
>>28703753TIME TO PAINT IT BRIGHT BLUE
>>28703732>“Aren’t Pershings kind of shit?”They're slow, but good frontal armor and dat gun should make up for that.
>>28703787No.But now that I think about it, it is technically possible to convert the KV-1S back into a KV-1, I should account for that.
>>28703732> BoastMorale is up. Why shouldn't we be excited?BTW guys, a question. Is the Panzer IV more "user friendly" than the Panther?It might be a good IC excuse to move the Delinquents over to the IV, if they have a hard time adjusting to the Panther.
>>28703812Soooo, yes or no?Also, I doubt anyone here wants to waste the money reverting to the KV-1S.
>>28703732Well shit, we should've bought the T-34 chassis then.
>>28703829The Pz IV is already comp spec, and they historically broke less than the early-run Panthers.
>>28703732Since the Pershing is not going to be battle-ready anytime soon, we might as well buy the T-34 in the interim.We can always use more T-34s.
>>28703847The chassis will be there the entire week. The advantage it basically has over the Tanklist, since chassis don't have a 1 week delivery time.I think we can replenish our cash by then, optimistically speaking.
>>28703883It's only a chassis, we'd have to by an upgrade kit as well.
> Boast“Of course I am! Everyone seems to be in good spirits now, so I should be in good spirits as well.”Kitten nods. “Good attitude to have, Trudy.”Lisa sits down on the bed, yawning. “Still… tired as hell. Swimming really takes it out of you, you know?”“Yeah, it does.” You sit up. “Still, you can all sleep over here if you’d like, I don’t mind.”Nancy gasps. “Oh!

>>28703939Only because I like the quest, and you, baby.
>>28703939Looks like that's because it was mostly pool and tanks based. Barely any mention of homecoming or Eugene. That stuff's like chum being thrown to sharks. But thanks for running, boss.
>>28703939I'm assuming they just got all riled up yesterday at the implication of males being within a 100 ft radius.Either way, I look forward to tomorrow!
Tank discussion time?I had a crazy idea (which I probably won't follow through) where the KV-1S is converted to an SU-152, the SU-122 is converted to a T-34-85, and their respective teams get switched around.Rifles get the tank destroyer that hunts "animals" (Tigers, Panthers, and Elefants) and will have to rely on camo (invoking snipers with ghillie suits) and have some fire discipline (due to limited rounds).Aviators still keep a big gun tank with a turret, can go even faster, and turn on a dime a la dog fighting.I know it's pigeonholing, but at least the crews are easier to remember and associate with. And like I said, I won't be pressing the idea to much.
>>28703914*woke up**sees people buy the pershing*'"Come on people, couldn't we discussed we talked to Octavia or something about whether or not the tank si worth it."It's rare, it's vintage, its post war, That going to be expsenisve as hell. I think everyone is effected by Blackjack's quest
>>28704418It's not a horrible idea, but we don't have the money for it. Also, the rifles have expressed a desire for a turret, so we should respect that.
>>28704552>post warIf anything, that would drive the cost down because of less demand by other Tankery Teams,.
>>28704881But it's a rare tank, and a vintage. We should have talked to Octovia before making the purchase. Can we cancel the purchase if possible.I really hope, we don't use it as our carry tank. Too much similar to GUPQ for my taste and I grown attached to the Sherman
>>28703939German is it possible to cancel a purchase before it comes through
