You tear it off and figure out your surroundings. Wendy and Octavia are asleep over on your bed, you’re on the floor surrounded by notebooks, your sleeping staff, and Ashley is standing in the corn-“Have a nice night?”WHAT THE FU-You say, “Ashley, what are you doing in my room?”She claps her hands together, grinning. “Just making sure you’ll be heading to the Rally today! It’s Tradition you know, can’t have you sleeping in like some NEET!”You nod. “Yeah, yeah, just give me a minute to freshen up, will you?”Ashley nods. “Alright, I’ll be at the Rally! Directions are on the table!” She then leaves your room.God she’s weird.> Freshen up> Wake everyone up> Read a Book (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Other
>>29151228> Freshen upIf we do this first, we escape the press for the bathroom once people wake up.
>>29151228> Freshen up
> Freshen upMuch as you like showering with Kitten, there’s nothing wrong with doing it yourself. Means there’s more hot water for you. You scrub yourself down and brush your teeth thoroughly, then dress yourself up in your school uniform for the day.You exit the shower to see everyone more or less waking up for the day.Wendy stands and arches her back as she stretches her arms out. “Whoooooo, busy night last night, huh?”You nod. “You know for some reason, I keep having bursts of random tank knowledge fart out of my brain every now and again, I think I have you to blame now, Wendy.”“Well,” says Wendy, “Enjoy. You’re going to need it.”Going to need it your ass. There’s no particular reason why you need to know why the Horstmann Suspension works like it does or the penetration differences between HV 77mm or the 17 Pounder.Kitten groans as she rolls over onto her back. “God, I feel terrible!”“Well,” you sit down next to Kitten, “maybe next time, Kitten, I won’t call for a lecture from Wendy. She really has a way with making you feel bad.”Octavia says, “It’s not intentional.”Lisa rubs her forehead, cringing. “It FEELS intentional.”> Get Breakfast> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29151455>Get BreakfastIt's 4 AM here and this quest is making me hungry
>>29151455> Get Breakfast
> Get BreakfastAfter your crew finishes freshening up and getting dressed, you all head down the elevator, past the lobby and into the café. Not as crowded as yesterday, but you can definitely find a lot of girls who are obviously into Tankery running around, getting their breakfasts, and idling about.You all pick up more of the tank shaped foodstuffs. This time you pick up the Waffletraktor, in the shape of some unknown German chassis put together with waffles and a cracker gun barrel with bacon tracks and banana wheels. Delicious.You can see your crews sat down in the same general area, but you also see a few other crews that you recognize, the St. Gloriana Girls, Robert Heinlein, Black Forest Peak, etc.Nancy looks over at you, “Who do you want to sit with?”> Sit with a crew (Specify)> Sit with one of the rival teams (Specify)> Find your own place> Other

> Sit with one of the rival teams (Saunders)“Hey, Kay, mind if we sit here?”Kay nods, coffee in hand. Oh god, a girl like her does NOT need coffee. “Sure, go ahead, take a seat!” All of you sit down around the table, where Kay is accompanied by whom she introduces as, “My subcommanders, Alisa and Naomi.”They greet you all amicably. “Morning,” says Naomi.You introduce your staff in return. “This is my VP, Nancy. My treasurer, Lisa. My Secretary, Ramirez. And this is my best good friend here, Carol, we all call her Kitten.”Kay smiles cheekily. “Funny name!”Kitten rolls her eyes. “Wasn’t funny how I got it.”“Anyway,” you say, “How are you, Kay?”“Oh, splendid! Had me a bit of a chat with Hobart from Christie. She and the Unlimited girls are a real hoot if I do say so myself,” she says. “Unlimited as a whole is quite the interesting sport.”Alisa snorts. “I think it’s a load of hoohah. Nothing but mods and conversions, none of the vehicles even resemble tanks anymore!”Kay nods, pensive. “Mhm. Still, gotta give it credit to that infamous American ingenuity!”> Get to know Saunders> Talk with someone (Specify)> Finish up and head out> Read a Book (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Other
>>29151951>> Get to know Saunders
>>29151951> Get to know Saunders
> Get to know Saunders“So, has Saunders always been into Tankery?”Kay nods. “Since the school’s founding in the 60’s. Our Senshadou line up used to be just a dozen or so surplus Shermans that were meant to be scrapped after the war. However, our benefactors from the good ol’ US of A started sending us lots of money after we started winning Tournaments, and now, here we are! Richest school and one of the biggest rosters there is!”You say, “Cool. So you only own just Shermans?”Kay smiles. “Nothing but. It’s-“ wait for it “The perfect medium tank. You can ask of anything the Sherman! It’s a real stubborn worker, and since there are so many, it’s cheap to repair and replace them if they get too old to restore.” She snaps her finger. “I hear you happen to have an M4A1E8. That’s a good command tank!”You smile, waving her off. “Oh stop, it just happened to be one of the few lying around, it used to be a stock M4.”“Well, stock or not. The M4 makes a great command tank, like I said, you can ask anything of the Sherman and it should be able to do it!”Nancy asks, “So, how’d you perform in the Nationals this year?”“We went up against Ooarai first thing, and got our asses handed to us,” She frowns, pointing to Alisa, “No thanks to Miss Cheater here.”Alisa frowns. “Hey! I just wanted to win!”“We win by fairness, Alisa,” says Kay. “But, hey, you’ve got your chance to redeem yourself here in the World Tournament.”Naomi asks you, “Say, you’re up against William Adams, right?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29152116> PoliteBy all accounts, William Adams is a veteran team that's likely to hand our asses to us.
> NeutralYou nod. “I suppose we are. Don’t really know too much about them. Hell, not sure when we’re even going to be fighting them.”Kay says, “The ITL will send you the details on the match soon, Monday at the earliest. You’ll get the date and the country where it’ll be held. But 72 hours in advance, they’ll send the exact location along with maps and the like, and if you don’t like it, you can always dispute!”Lisa says, “Alright, that’s fine. Do you guys know anything about William Adams?”Alisa says, “They’re St. Gloriana’s Sister school from the United Kingdom. It’s a coed school I hear.”Naomi leans over to Alisa, cheeky smile on her face. “What’s wrong, Alisa? Takashi not giving you enough-““Please don’t start.”You think on it. “So, are they anything like St. Gloriana?”Kay says, “Oh, you’ll see at the Rally. They usually hang together.” The waitress comes over and refills Kay’s coffee cup. “Question is though, are you feeling prepared to take them on? They are one of the favorites.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29152319> NeutralWe're kinda working on that.
>>29152319> BoastPfft, of course. They can't match us in spirit!BTW, is the tournament single elimination?
>>29152319>> NeutralSchteeeeeel, why no Koreans on your liiiist?
> Boast“Of course I’m prepared! I mean, all they have are cruiser tanks. It’s not like they can hold a point or get into extended engagements.”Kay nods. “Well, if you say so.” She smirks. “I mean, I don’t really think much of British tanks, save for the Firefly, but I can understand how deadly they can be in the right hands.”Nancy says, “So, you don’t have any confidence in us?”Kay laughs, slapping her knee. “Haha! That’s not what I mean, I have the upmost confidence in all of you! I’m just confident that it’s not going to be some curb stomp!” She checks her watch, whistling. “Whoo, anyway. We all gotta get going. I’ll take care of the check,” she says as she stands up. “How much were yours worth?”Nancy says, “Oh, you don’t have to pay for us!”“Nonsense, that’s what friends do, right?” she says. Lisa tells the exact price, then Kay leaves to pay the full price.Lisa nods, taking out her wallet. “Alright, everyone cough up some green.” You, your staff and even Kitten thrown in about 3 dollars for the waitress. All except for Naomi and Alisa, who look confused. Lisa looks at them, skeptical. “Come on you two, throw in a few dollars.”Alisa says, “We don’t tip.”Lisa looks at them funny. “You don’t tip?”Naomi shakes her head, leaning back. “We don’t believe in tipping.”Lisa looks at them like they just punched a baby. “The fuck… you don’t- What? I’m Jewish and even I don’t have the balls not to tip.”Alisa says, “Hey, we don’t believe in pity pay to waitresses. I’m sure they make enough money from their wages.”Nancy says, “Hey, that girl was nice.”“Well,” says Alisa, “It doesn’t matter if they’re nice. Their wage covers their living. They don’t need pity pay.”“Oh come on,” says Lisa. “You can’t honestly say a waitress makes enough just from minimum wage.”> Defend Saunders> Defend Staff> Mediate> Other
>>29152610>> MediateThis will not end well.
>>29152610>Mediateuhm, how did it get to tipping?
>>29152610You don't tip in France and you don't tip in Japan. Don't give them flak for not tipping.
>>29152610> MediateI think tipping is stupid, but some systems are set up so you basically have to tip for the other guy to make a decent living.
>>29152610> MediateSee in some countries, there's a decent minimum wage.
>>29152610>> Othershrug and walk off
> Mediate“Now, hang on, Lisa. I mean, they are from a different country, maybe tipping isn’t inherent to them,” you say. Lisa’s about to say something, but you cut her off. “However, I feel like Alisa and Naomi should know that they’re in a country where tipping is a courtesy. It’s not pity pay like you say it is, it’s just a way of showing that the waitress did good service, and they should be rewarded for that.”Alisa says, “They are rewarded with it with their wages. I mean, they’re not starving to death or anything.”Lisa says, “It’s not about starving to death. Waitressing is a hard job. They have to deal with all kinds of idiots and bozos daily, and carry food, memorize orders, all that stuff. They make total shit on their wages in the US.”Naomi shrugs. “Well, sorry if the waitresses don’t earn enough in America.”“Waiting tables,” says Lisa, “is one of the most common careers for any college graduates in our country. It’s a job that virtually anyone can do and make a living off of, and it’s because of their tips.”Kay comes back. “Alright, girls, you ready to go?” She looks at the pile of cash. “Whose is that?”You say, “Our tip.”Kay raises an eyebrow. “What’s a tip?”Ramirez says, “It’s a thing we do in America. Didn’t you know?”Kay pauses for a second, then laughs. “Of course I did!” She pulls out her wallet and pulls out a twenty then throws it on the table. “Alisa, Naomi?” They both look at each other, then reluctantly pull out some cash for the waitress. “Anyway, we oughta get going. See you at the Rally, okay?”You nod. “Sure.”> Finish up and head out> Meet another team (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Other

I wonder if Kay just does anything she thinks is American.Does she think girls loving girls is American? I mean, America accidentally helped create Class S.
>>29152790>> Finish up and head out
>>29152790They forgot to note that places are allowed to pay less than minimum wage as long as tips make up the difference.

>>29153613Decent minimum wages are apparently for communists.
>>29153613>>29153685Good servers make more then they otherwise would. Shit one's have to be payed the difference by their employer, and thus get fired. It's a system I like because it encourages quality servers, which are part of the reason for eating out in the first place; enjoying the atmosphere and service.Sage for /ck/ shitposting
Should we keep this bumped maybe

> Finish up and head out“Alright, let’s get on the bounce,” you say as you finish up your meal.Your crew immediately finishes up after you and you all head out to your Sherman at good pace. Lisa scowls a bit, muttering on her breath. “Those ameriboos, not knowing when to tip,” she says.Nancy says, “Now, Lisa, it’s not nice to insult people behind their back.”“Still, what kind of person doesn’t tip? It’s so foreign to me!” says Lisa as she hops into the driver’s hatch.With all of you loaded in, the Sherman powers up and gets on the road to the Rally. You direct Lisa with the directions Ashley provided you, and find that it’s only really half an hour away.Nancy pokes her head out of the loader’s hatch. “Hey, President! I got lunch loaded in one of the ammo compartments in case you get hungry!”“Always so considerate!” you compliment. “Thanks, Nancy!”It doesn’t take long for you to find the Rally, because on the horizon, you see a huge sea of tanks parked and scrawled about an open field. An ITL Official turned out of an M8 Greyhound directs you to your parking space. You find yourself next to, of all people, St. Gloriana Girls College.Nancy, Lisa, and Kitten look around in awe. “Jeez! There are so many tanks! You could invade a country with all these!” People walk around, greet each other affectionately, and brag about their tanks to each other.Perhaps its time you did the same.> Greet St. Gloriana> Find a Rival Team (Specify)> Stay by your tank> OtherBecause of today’s delay, I’ll try to run it ‘til midnight.

>>29154479> Greet St. Glorianadamn, 4chan is giving out on us or what?
> Greet St. Gloriana“Hey, Darjeeling!” You offer your hand, to which she shakes it with her free hand. Her other hand’s holding a saucer and tea cup.“Miss Pool, good to see you again,” she says with a smile on her face. You both turn to her absolutely massive Churchill VII. “Like what you see?”You nod. “It seems a bit wider than our Churchill IV.”“Extra armor, and a QF 75mm. My mechanics have also tuned the suspension and the engine a bit so it performs absolutely brilliantly,” she says.You motion over to the Matilda tanks lined up next to the Churchill. “And I assume those are the Matilda tanks?”She nods. “Matilda II tanks. They’re excellent against lights and they can at least keep up with my Churchill. I love having them around for support.”You nod, and gesture over to your Sherman. “My crews haven’t arrived yet but check out what we got here.”Darjeeling examines your Sherman carefully. “Interesting. Very interesting design.”Nancy nods. “We upgraded it to the 76mm not too long ago. And with the wet stowage and the HVSS, it’s a really good tank to work in!”Darjeeling says, “Well, you must enjoy the tank you are given. I assume this is your command tank?”You nod. “De facto I suppose. And I figure-“… Are those bagpipes?[1/2]
>>29154820[2/2]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRadntCrd9kDarjeeling’s face appears to flush, apparently in fright as you look past her and see a Cromwell rolling up the green fields, a couple of girls in khaki uniforms riding a top. One of them playing the bagpipes rather vigorously.You point to them, “Let me guess, you know them.”Darjeeling nods.They stop the Cromwell in front of you, then all dismount. The girl who you assume to be Victoria and the leader of this pack stops in front of you to say something, then turns to the bagpipe girl still playing the bagpipes.“Alright, you can stop that,” she says. The bagpipe girl turns to her and looks at her with a face that says, ‘watchu gon do.” Victoria proceeds to mess her up, causing the bagpipe to screech and the bagpipe girl to stop. Victoria smiles smugly, “Thank you, lovely.”She turns to Darjeeling. “Darjeeling! It’s been a while!”Darjeeling nods, forcibly smiling. “Victoria. Good to see you again.”Victoria looks at you curiously. “Who’s your friend here?”> Let Darjeeling introduce you> Introduce yourself> Other

William Adams Naval Academy”> OPPOSING SPORTS TEAM ENCOUNTERED> WILLIAM ADAMS NAVAL ACADEMY> Victoria Augustine CommandingYou nod back, smiling and shaking her hand firmly. “Nice to meet you.”“Oh, it’s nice to talk to someone from the colonies for a change,” she says. Her British accent isn’t as proper as Darjeeling’s. It actually sounds kind of harsh. “Let me introduce my co-commanders.” She gestures over to the blonde girl with the bagpipes. “That there’s Mary Stuart, our resident Gordon Highlander.” She motions over to the redhaired prissy faced girl. “And that there is Anne Murphy, the Irish girl.”“Oi, why do you introduce me as Irish you cunt?” asks Murphy. Ah, so do all Irish people say that?“Because you are Irish you soulless ginger, troublemaking cunt,” says Victoria.Stuart walks over to Darjeeling. “Darjeeling, I see you haven’t spilled your tea yet.”Darjeeling nods hesitantly. “Well I-“ She flinches as Stuart plays a loud tone on the bagpipes.Stuart curses. “Shite, not a drop.”Victoria looks at you, slight smile on her face. “So, what’s up with you? This your first year in Tankery?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

Wait, is that a real Irish girl or a Japanese girl pretending to be Irish?
>>29155279Actual Irish girl.
> PoliteYou nod. “My first year ever. Not really experienced I guess you could say, you probably have a lot more on me.”Victoria smiles. “Aw, relax. It’s not like it’s a big deal. Though I suppose,” she turns to Darjeeling, Stuart, and Murphy. “We might have to make arrangements for our second match then.”Murphy says, “Hold on, Stuart, the feck are you trying to do you retard?”Stuart motions over to Darjeeling’s tea. “This fookin’ tea cup won’t be spilled you stupid cunt. I try over and over again and nae fookin’ drop’s ever been spilled outta this thing.”Murphy rolls her eyes. “You daft cunt, you can’t just try to make her spill it by playing the bagpipes like it’s 1815.”“I’m sorry, I dinnae see you trying to make that tea spill you fooking cunt.”“That’s because I have no reason to you stupid eejit!”Meanwhile, Darjeeling simply stands by as if this shit happens to her every day.However, you look over at Victoria. “Wait, what do you mean by make the arrangements?”Victoria shrugs innocently. “Well, we know a lot more about Tankery, we got better tanks than your zippo lighter here, and you’re a first year. No shame in getting beat your first outing you know?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

> Neutral“Well, hey, I think we stand a decent chance of winning, don’t you think?”Stuart and Murphy walk over. “Nae,” says Stuart. “Not with that fooking fire hazard for a command tank, sweet jove I feel real sorry for you.”Nancy walks over. “Now hang on, we’ve got wet stowage on this thing, and the cast armor’s adequate. It’s no more likely to burst into flames than your Cromwell tanks.”Murphy points her thumb at Nancy, chuckling. “Who’s this fecking try-hard?”You frown, placing your hands on your hips. “That’s my VP and Gunner, Nancy. And I’d appreciate it if you didn’t insult her in my presence.”Victoria nods. “Right, right, no trash-talking the competition you two.”“Oh come on,” says Murphy. “Look at this fecking line up! I can’t describe it!” Murphy waves down the Lafayette Girls Academy tanks that arrived a few minutes ago. “You can’t possibly think we can get beat by these eejits.”You cross your arms, scowling. “Hey, it’ll be a real fucking surprise if we do beat you. Like the way it was in the Revolution.”Stuart points angrily at you. “’Ey, we kicked your arses in the War of 1812, and we nae hestitate to fooking do it again, you cunt.”You smile smugly. “Try me.”Victoria waves everyone down. “Now, now girls. This is why I keep you two in your tanks, you don’t know how to interact properly you stupid cunts.” She points at you. “As for you, I commend your cast-iron balls. Not too many people stand up to a Scotsman like that.”“Oi!

> Talk with the William Adams GirlsYou walk over to Darjeeling as the Adams Girls resign themselves to examining your tank, making snide comments as they go. “So, Darjeeling. Are they always like this?”Darjeeling shrugs a little, her elegance only faded slightly. “Well. They’re nice when you get to know them.”“That’s not reassuring,” you respond.“I know,” she says.You say, “But hey, what do you think of their line up? I mean, it’s nothing special right?”Darjeeling sips her tea, then says, “My senior Earl Grey-“ Okay, wait what? “-loved the Cruiser tank lines when she attended St. Gloriana. Commanded from a Cromwell tank she did. I personally prefer the Infantry, far more survivable, and a bit more reliable at high speeds. Or high speeds for a given.”“Alright,” you shrug. Not a lot helping you there. “So, you think I can beat them right?”Darjeeling looks at you, then smiles proudly. “Have you heard this saying? Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”“… So you’re saying I have no chance?”“You should at least try.”> Talk with the William Adams Girls> Talk to your staff> Talk to someone (Specify)> Find a Rival Team (Specify)> Other

CHELSEA IS THE MOTHERFUCKING SHIT!”You roll your eyes and decide on taking a walk around. You invite your crew as well, and bid farewell to Victoria and Darjeeling. Maybe you can find a different time. Hell, maybe you’ll find a team like Walter Chri-“Whoa.”Well, that didn’t take long.You all stand in the shadow of what appears to be a Maus Hull. On the sides are spons with what appear to be short barrel howitzers from the KV-2, and the large central turret isn’t a Maus turret, but appears to be completely custom with what appears to be two barrels worth of 128mm. On top of that turret is a smaller turret with two 20mm guns. On the frontal hull is a hull mounted 75mm gun from a Sherman tank.“What the fuck,” says Lisa. “This can’t be legal.”“It’s not!” says someone behind you. You all turn around to see a smiling girl with glasses and wearing some kind of mechanic jumpsuit. “We call this thing the Supermouse. We used the scrapped hull from the second Maus prototype to build this thing.”You nod. “Really.”She nods back. “Really!” She looks at you, finding you familiar apparently. “You sound familiar… are you Gertrude Pool?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29155787> Find a Rival Team (Specify)Oohri, we need the Miho to slap down all these bitches.
>>29156074> Polite...Did they fucking make a Baneblade?
>>29156074>> BoastYeah we are.What the fuck did they do to that Maus?
>>29156074> BoastThanks for buying the Pershing!
>>29156101yes... yes i think they did make a baneblade. god emperor help us all!
>>29156074> BoastI guess she's the one we talked to over at the phone. Hope they're taking good care of the Pershing and the BT-42.I was also expecting sponsorship decals all over their tanks or something.
>>29156152I think that's for their other tanks.They used the prototype haul to make this?My inner historian weaps at the thought
> Polite“That’s me. Gertrude Pool. You?”“Name’s Perrine Hobart. Christie Tech.”> OPPOSING SPORTS TEAM ENCOUNTERED> J. WALTER CHRISTIE POLYTECHNICAL INSTITUTE> Perrine Hobart CommandingShe offers you her hand, which you shake. “So,” she says, “You’re the girls we bought the Pershing off of?”You nod. “M26E1. Taking good care of it?”She nods violently. “We’re making some conversions to it. My advisors tell me that we should probably save it for the Unlimited League, try and stick a Challenger II turret and gun on it, and stick the engine from a Boeing 747 into it. Turn that World War II vintage into a modern day marvel I’d say so.”You nod. “Ah. Okay.” Well, now it kinda feels like a waste. That was one of only two M26E1s.Nancy asks, “So, are you using… this in the Tournament?” She points to the Supermouse.Hobart laughs. “Hells bells no! We just brought some of our Unlimited Tanks because our Classic line up is still a WIP. I assume you might have seen some of the roster?”You nod. “Weird roster.”Hobart laughs even further. “Well, I tell you what. It might get a bit weirder. And heavier. We’re debating the ITL Officials on whether or not we can make the E-100 legal. We actually acquired the Chassis from a British scrapyard not two days ago. What about you, how’s your line up?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
Already voted, but adding some more topics for conversation.Did they need to go through with a match to establish a match history, or did their credentials in the Unlimited circuit allow them to join?If it's the first one, which team did they face and how well did they fare?
>>29156256> NeutralNot as uniform as any other team would like, but we'll make do.
Tankery Unlimited feels like some kind of cyberpunk 'fuck history' sport.
>>29156256Boast.Probably just as odd as yours if a little lighter.
>>29156256I have to admit, something about the way these girls cut up tanks kinda pisses me off.And Sweet Fucking Jesus, where the hell do they find the money?
>>29156308GuP seems to be set in a world where ever country has an education budget the size of America's military budget. Except Italy, who suck.
>>29156256> BoastAs much as I didn't like the Pershing, I feel bad that it's going to be turned into hybrid monstrosity
>>29156365Gods knows how Michelle would've reacted.I honestly think we would have to to actively intervene when she goes axe-murderer.
>>29156405Let's mention it to her (as a casual aside) as soon as we can.
>>29156405I'd let her, one of the only two in existence and it is going to be destroyed in some sort of horrible frankenstein mash up.
>>29156405I think we can convince her to join for revenge against butchering such a rare tank.
>>29156256> Boastthis girl is a nutter. letting the E-100 to be legal.
>>29156512As much as I hate them for butchering these rare tanks, I think it's kind of cool their trying to make this legal though
> Boast“Somewhat like yours, a bit unusual, but I think it’s a real gamewinner!”Hobart nods. “Cool beans. If we fight, that’ll definitely be something! Battle of the ages, David vs. Goliath. Holmes vs. Moriarty. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader. Churchill AVRE vs. whatever tanks you girls got.” She thumbs past the Supermouse. “Want to see the rest of our tanks?”You nod. “Sure.”Hobart leads you past the Supermouse and onto… the rest.“Over here is our Ultra-Sherman. Stuck a 120mm L44 gun in a custom turret, extended the tracks by a couple of inches and widened the hull as well. We also used the same engine, a Honeywell.” You feel somewhat saddened as you see Kay stand in its shadow, her characteristic grin replaced by a very defeated look. Alisa and Naomi stand beside her, just as saddened.Hobart continues, “However, it’s a piece of shit anyway, we were planning on scrapping it or selling it later.” She moves on to the next tank.“That there is what we call the Liger. We found a Panther II hull and stuck a King Tiger turret on it. We ripped out most of what was inside the turret so we could fit the 152mm ML-20 from an SU-152 we found lying in a swamp. Cramped in there, but we also tuned up the engine, replaced the torsion bar suspension with an improved Horstmann design, and uparmored the sides.”Nancy, Lisa, and Kitten grow a bit pale. “Christ,” says Kitten.“And over here is a Hellbat. Hellcat chassis with an M26 Pershing turret with the 105 gun from the T95 GMC. That one’s new, we haven’t bloodied it in combat yet.”Hobart looks over to you. “We got more tanks, but you got any questions?”> “Why?”> “What’s Unlimited Tankery like?”> “Why the mods?”> Other
>>29156608>> “What’s Unlimited Tankery like?”Suddenly, I want to read a quest with the Unlimited Tankery league.
>>29156608THIS GIRL, THIS GIRL WILL FUCKING DIE
>>29156608>> “What’s Unlimited Tankery like?”
>>29156608>> “Why?”That's what keeps going through my mind as I keep reading her modifications
>>29156608>Why? Did you get raped by a fucking tank at some point and this is your twisted revenge on them?
>>29156608> “Why?”My inner historian screams for her blood.
>>29156608> Other...You like em big barrels huh?
>>29156608> “What’s Unlimited Tankery like?”And it looks like Kay took a morale hit even before the tourney. Hope she'll bounce back from this, hell it might be a good motivation for taking down the Walter Christie team.
>>29156608> “Why God... Why."
>>29156608> “Why?”this school... they must be defeated at all cost for this horror they have done.
>>29156608Again, I disliked buying the Pershing but I really feel like we sold our soul as a tank crew for selling it to these Dr.Frankensteins
>>29156767Making a 17k profit from buying a tank then selling it is no joke.
>>29156767I feel shamed as a tanker to let such a piece of history be cut up into some sort of Frankenstein abomination.Michelle must know.
>>29156787I know, and I wouldn't feel bad if it was just a regular Pershing but imagining what their going to do with it.it hurts
Eh, it's just a tank.
>>29156608>Panther II hull...They made the only Panther II hull in the world into one of their abominations.I REALLY hope we get to face them so we could beat their asses in.
> “Why?”“Why?” you ask. Hobart looks confusedly at you, so you emphasize the question a little. “Why all these… mods?”Hobart says, “That’s what the meaning of Unlimited is. You’re free to modify as you see fit. If you want to make your light tank faster than a jet, you can! If you want your Sherman to be to snipe King Tigers from the moon, you can! There’s no limit to what you can do in Unlimited Tankery! I love seeing new tanks arrive and thinking, ‘how can I make this better?’”Lisa says, “I can’t even believe it.”Hobart nods. “If you this is awesome, just wait ‘til you see the Battleship.”“What?” you say. Oh god, there’s more?“We couldn’t bring the Battleship because it’s too big to transport by air. However, let me describe it to you.” She grins like this is the best thing ever. “We built some replica TOG II hulls, mashed them all together, stuck a couple of Centurion turrets on them and fitted them all with twin linked 17 pounders. Central turret is an M1A1 Abram turret on a raised super structure with a long 105 gun.”You nod. “Okay. Okay.” You feel a bit of yourself go. You’re not sure what.“Anyway,” says Hobart. “If you got any more questions or want to see more of our Unlimited lineup. We’re right here.”> Talk to Perrine Hobart> Talk to your staff> Talk to someone (Specify)> Find a Rival Team (Specify)> Other

>>29156849> OtherCall the History Team over here. Ask them what they would do for a chance to destroy Walter Christie in the second round. Cue training montage.

I'm not sure what to think, I remember an article where someone asked a vet if he could build a tank out of existing tank parts.Anyways, how do you feel about this tank pic related. AMX-13 turret, Sherman hull.
>>29156849> Find a Rival Team (Black Forest Peak)
>>29156849>>29156924Heh, yes we should call them.Also> Find a Rival Team (Saunders)Get Kay outta there!

>>29156849> Find a Rival Team (Saunders)>>29156924Also this.And we now have the perfect reason to get Michelle on board.
>>29156849>Offer to make a betIf we beat them in the ITL, they have to give us the Pershing back.
>>29156942Would this be considered a butchered tank even though it did see service?
>>29156849> Find a Rival Team (Saunders)Kay is going to need help after this.
>>29156942...that looks fantastic. Is it autoloaded?
>>29157008Yes of course, it is an AMX-13 turret after all.
>>29156991Not really, since it was an upgrade post war.What their doing is not even feasiable for any military use.
>>2915702210/10 would tank with.
>>29156917The toggle bolt action is actually kind of crappy, the Walther P38 was better in every way.
>>29157034You should see the Super Sherman M51 with 105mm gun.
Am I a bad person for wanting Saunders to lose this one so we can face and beat Walter Cristie?
>>29156917It might not be relevant as a sidearm anymore, but would you want to see Elmer Fudd cut down the barrel of an Artillery Luger just so he could wedge it between his asscheeks? Or have Captain Cowadooty get one of the TWO .45 ACP Lugers and then J-B weld a red-dot sight on?>>29157042It's not that the toggle bolt is superior, it's that the Luger, a handgun fielded for half a century, is historically relevant as a firearm that saw the two bloodiest wars on record.
> Find a Rival Team (Saunders)You walk over to the retreating Saunders girls. Naomi has wrapped her blazer around Kay’s shoulders, while Alisa is holding up a bottle of soda for her to drink. Kay looks totally and completely defeated.“Kay?” you say, “You okay?”Kay quietly says, “They said they were going to scrap it. You all know what happens when tanks get scrapped.”Alisa says, “Now, Kay, they considered selling it too.”“What team,” says Kay, “is going to buy such a tank.”Nancy asks, “Can’t you?”“She said she wanted more prospective buyers,” says Kay. “That poor little tank is toast and there’s nothing I can do about it.”Lisa whistles. “Still, gotta hand it to Christie. Those tanks are really something. What do you think their real line up is going to be like?”Nancy says, “Nothing good. Or at least, predictable. We at least know some of their tanks, but they could be fielding anything else.”Kay wipes her eyes a bit. “Those monsters.”> COMFORT KAY?> Y/N> Other
>>29157071I dunno, on one hand I want to beat down Walter Christie, on the other I see Kay wanting some well-deserved revenge.
>>29156849> Talk to your staffwe must make a new battle plan to crush this team, these horrors must never see the field of battle.
>>29157107> YAs if there was any other fucking choice.
>>29157107>> YDo it. We'll gain some friendship points.
>>29157098Then you don't wanna look at this Mosin Nagant.
>>29157107>Y>Otherwe must team up agienst such an evil.
>>29157107>YWe help our friends. And kay has done nothing but be friendly to us.
>>29157107> YStart singing some kind of upbeat old folk song.
>>29157107>> Y...I want to buy it, but our budget is very restrained...
>>29157107> YWhat terrible person wouldn't do that after such an act of terrorism?
>>29157141YOU MONSTER! stop franken Fran-ing guns like that!
>>29157141Jeebus. I don't even particularly like Mosins, and I feel bad for that thing.
>>29157107> YWait, Kay can make a bet with Walter Christie for the tank can't she if she wins?
>>29157107>> Y>>29157181>>29157183I'm not the owner, I just found the image on google.
>>29157107>Y"I agree Kay. They are terrible people."I know one name we will never answer on our phone ever again. Change her contact name to murderers.
>>29157196I want this. I want our Pershing back, they can't butcher it.
>>29157141I wanna shoot the shit outta that. I bet it's fun as fuck.
>>29157196No bets, not in a serious tournament anyway.>>29157154Maybe we could get some money from somewhere. I'm looking at you Kay.
>>29157202sorry. but still.. the living nightmare that poor gun is suffering from. it's probably better if someone put it out of it's misery and melted it down.
> YYou place a hand on Kay’s shoulder. “Listen, Kay. They did build 50,000 Shermans if I remember correctly. What’s one more to the scrapyard?”Kay says, “That poor tank.”“Kay, I know Shermans are pretty important to, and… I don’t really know what you’re feeling because I am pretty new to tanks.”Kay looks over at you. “Well… maybe you could buy it?”Alisa nods. “Yeah, she knows you. Maybe you could buy it?”“Uh, I didn’t say I’d do that-“ oh god you don’t need this.Kay stands up straight, determined, and looks you dead in the eye. “Buy that tank. We’ll cover any costs and then some. It’ll be yours to keep too if you want it.”Lisa crosses her arms and says, “That’s practically a free tank there, Boss. What do you think?”> ATTEMPT TO BUY THE ULTRA-SHERMAN? (Saunders will cover the purchase.)> Y/N> Other
>>29157307>> YWe need all the tanks we can get.We'll do it.
>>29157307>YUltra Sherman FTW
>>29157307>NI just want to see Kay totally crushed
So where do we draw the line between an Upgrade and Unlimited Upgrade?To be devil's advocate>>29157070>>29156942These tanks are considered upgrades, but one of them has a turret of a different tank adapted to its hull and the other has a 105mm gun with modified turret. Where do we draw the line?This tank, pic related, is clearly a German tank converted into a Soviet tank (it was a concept tank for captured vehicles).
>>29157307> YOnly if you cover the cost to comp.spec sherman (any variant) if possible
>>29157307> YTo be honest, I'd rather have Kay to do with it as she wished, it's her money after all.Wonder if we should mention the Pershing.
>>29157333Upgrades for the Unlimited scene are, literally, unlimited. You could stick wings on a tank and that'd be legal, and I'm sure Christie has at least one lying around.Modifications for the Unlimited scene can run anywhere from fusing tanks together, to sticking modern engines, to using modern guns and suspension. Key word is modern.
>>29157307>Y>>29157332You are a monster.
>>29157365>Wonder if we should mention the Pershing.Yes.
>>29157307>>YYou can never have too many Shermans
>>29157307> Y>>29157354Considering it's modded to hell and back, it's coming in Comp Spec.
>>29157307>>29157354This, but I rather not think how much will it cost to restore it.Ask if she can cover the cost to restore it to comp.specs
>>29157307>YOk lessee here. Buying the Ordnance bundle will let us upgrade the Churchill, Sherman to a Firefly and the Sentinel to an AC3.
>>29157307> YWe might want to mention the Pershing as well.Hell, I don't care if Kay gets the Pershing, I just want to see it out of Perrine's hands.>>29157332Absolutely disgusting.
>>29157422This. We need to get out tank back before it gets butchered.
>>29157422I thought they only care about Shermans?What was their roster list again?
>>29157354>>29157394Jesus fucking Christ people, it's a free tank, don't try to exhort Kay even more. Nobody said we needed to use it.
>>29157447It's still American, and one of the only two built.
>>29157452But it's not legal. I don't even know what to do with it?
>>29157307> YIt'll take time and money to make it Tankery legal again, but in the meantime we can use it as an example to motivate us and the rest of our crew.
>>29157476Convert it dumbass when we finally have the money.We're getting it at zero expense to ourselves, and all you can think about is how to extort someone whose been nothing but friendly to us.
>>29157476The hull is still fine. Just take out the bad and shove in the good.
>>29157496We should totally show it to Michelle as an example of what'll happen to the Pershing.Hopefully one day she'll come to us ominously covered in blood.
> YYou nod. “Alright, Kay. I’ll do this, but you should be straight with me, okay?”Kay nods. “We’re from Saunders, we’re nothing if not honorable.”You all walk back to Hobart, who’s busy reading out of a huge engineering textbook. You tap her on the shoulder, and when she sees you, she grins. “Ah, Gertrude! What’s up?”Business. You point to the Ultra-Sherman. “We want to buy that tank.”Hobart looks over, confused. “Ah, I see. I suppose we can do business considering we’ve done it before, the BT-42 and the Pershing after all.”Lisa asks, “What’d you do with the BT-42 anyway?”Hobart says, “Turned it into an Assault Cannon, of sorts. Removed the turret, lengthened and widened the hull and improved the suspension, then we used the engine from a Leopard 2. As a final touch, we used built an armored casemate on the hull and mounted four 120mm L44s. So, it’s a bit like a shotgun now!”… what is this feeling in your gut?You wave it off. “Anyway. How much for the Ultra-Sherman?”“75,000. Why, you planning on using it?” she asks.“Well. Depends on how it much it’d cost to make it legal.”“Oh, with all those mods. It’d cost you up to 50,000 just to get it back to the crappy stock M4.” Hobart nods. “Anyway, you buying it?”> Y/N?> Other
>>29157517Well if anything, we could get a potential firefly out of this
>>29157538>YDon't worry about making it legal. Just take it to meets and show it off to the other Classic teams as 'the future of tankery'.
>>29157538> Other...We should go back to Kay and ask if she really wants this.Because holy motherfucking shit.
>>29157538>> YIf Saunders are paying for it
>>29157538> YIt's free and we don't even have to convert it back. Just knowing that we saved this tank from being scrapped is all that I need.
>>29157538>YWe told Kay we would. We're not going to break that trust.
>>29157538> YKay said she'd buy it so...Also, we should see if we can pull the thing apart and sell it piece by piece.
>>29157581Uuuuh, this.My God, that price.
>>29157538I know the BT-42 was a shit tank but I feel sorry for it. We just sold a rare tank and they...and they.
>>29157538...Flip me. 125k just for a stock Sherman.Well, Saunders is paying. Like I care. They're rich aren't they?>Y
>>29157538>YThe more Hobart speaks the more I hate her
>>29157581Saunders can afford dozens of the goddamn things. This is worth, what, three stock M4s? Four?
>>29157581This.Uh, I wanted our Pershing back as well, but you take what you can get.
>>29157637I don't think she's a bad person just has a very bad hobby.Why do I picture her as Franken Fran?
>>29157649Somewhere around the range of seven of them I'd guess.
>>29157637The more she speaks the more I want Gertrude to hatefuck her
>>29157679Well there were many recent references to her so its fresh in your mind.
>>29157679We already have Fran as our dentist.
>>29157538>Yi swear, the more this bitch does these things, the more the tankery world will hate her guts.
Kay is probably going to be having nightmares of "All of my tanks were sold to HER" now
>>29157711Really, because I find Horbart to be more Fran like considering she lies 'improving' thingsI don't even think her hobby is all that bad, but the fact she's doing this to rare tanks kind of irks me
>>29157711Here a Fran, there a Fran, everywhere a Fran!
>>29157679no she is a bad person and does not even realize it. she is to tanks what Franken Fran is to flesh. IT IS EVIL!
>>29157373Well to be honest, the definition of "Modern" is always changing. The AMX-13, at the time, was modern so I wonder if it would draw as much flak in the Tankery world due to it's Cold War tech?
>>29157728It's not her fault. In her previous environment it was perfectly fine. To use a /v/ comparison, its someone from LoL playing DOTA for the first time.
Unlimited Tanks seems like the most effective mode of Yukari-bullying ever devised
>>29157759What she does to tanks doesn't bother me as much as she does it to rare tanks.The thing she did to the Togs didn't bother me since they were replicas but what she did to the BT-42 (though it is a shit tank) make my heart ache
>>29157806Oh god she would be on the ground in the fetal position if she saw and heard all of this.
>>29157823And the Panther II, and the Maus, and our Pershing...
>>29157836This is making me want to show this to the Black Forest.They converted the prototype Maus into this.They have and take pride in their Maus
>>29157141Bubba'd as fuck
>>29157806Axe-murderer Yukari and Michelle teamup?
>>29157836I think we know how to win our inevitable battle against them: "Hey girls, have you seen J. Walter Christie's lineup? Come check it out!"Then Yukari's PTSD loses the battle by preventing Oarai's flag tank from being able to fire.
> Y“I’ll buy it.”> - 75,000 DOLLARS FROM SAUNDERS FUNDSHobart shakes your hand. “Alright, she’s all yours then. I’ll arrange for it to be transported on the Macon with you guys.”You nod. “Alright. Anyway, we oughta go.”Hobart looks saddened. “Oh? Don’t you want to see our J-Wagen? We found a working K-Wagen, uparmored it, and gave it a couple of six pounders for armament, then gave it a jet engine for propulsion! It practically glides on the field! We even stuck a Churchill turret on top with a 17 pounder!”You sigh and say, “No thanks.”“Alright, suit yourself!”With that all over, you walk over to the Saunders girls, who look at you in anticipation. You say, “It’s done.”Kay immediately bear hugs you. “OH THANK YOU! The poor little Sherman is in safer hands now!” She turns to Naomi. “Naomi!”Naomi walks up to you. “In thanks for doing this, Kay has authorized to give you a surplus from our budget, as a token of our gratitude.”> + 75,000 DOLLARSYou nod. “Gee, thanks!”Kay leaves the hug and grins like nothing happened. “Well, the Sherman is yours to keep!” She checks the time. “Oooh boy. Time for lunch!”You nod. “Alright, don’t let us slow you down.”Kay, Alisa, and Naomi wave goodbye as they leave, grateful for what you have done for the Ultra-Sherman. You place your hands on your hips as you consider it though.

>>29157943>>> Find a Rival Team (Black Forest Peak)So that's 25,000 after we Comp.spec it. Is there anything pressing we need?
I would just like to say, right now I don't think we need another Sherman, we need to upgrade our existing tanks, like long 75's for the PzIV and Stug and a comp-spec Chi Ha.Whether or not anyone else agrees, well that's up to you guys.
Hobart's gonna be real surprised when she realizes that the thing she think is cool and has been showing off is considered to be on the same level as drowning puppies.

>>29158101I want to buy the Su-76b or the Argentian tank. (More the former then the latter)and save the rest to buy the ordinence package
>>29158101Yes actually. Upgrading our current tanks.Lemme get a prospective shopping list for you. Be right back.
>>29158116I'm with you at least.Use the money on improving the crewed tanks should be a priority with the first match being close at hand.
If you wanna see a butchered tank that was supposed to be green lighted look at this Scout Panther. With a hull that big, I doubt it can provide actual recon.
>>29158104Or for Christ's sake, get the KV-85.We've been putting that off forever, or at least the T-34/85.
When we fight JWC we should wait until Hobart is driving over a bridge then blow it to try and drown her
>>29158162Meant to link this one >>29158104
>>29158135Meh, I think the Su-76 is overrate, crappy gun and little prospect for upgrades.
>>29158164Damn, I meant proposed.
Shopping List!>Upgrade KV-1S to KV-1 Model 1942>Upgrade Type 97 to Comp Spec>Maybe Upgrade Panther to JagdPanther.Maybe Upgrade Churchill to mk VII
>>29158083it was worth it. our karma will be pumped up from all the good in the long run we will get from this act.
>>29158215>Upgrade KV-1S to KV-1 Model 1942Why in the name of sweet fucking Jesus would we do this?Also, you forgot the T-34/85.
> Find a Rival Team (Black Forest Peak)You decide on a mobile lunch, and that’s figured out with Nancy bringing neat little ham sandwiches for everyone.Kitten shakes her head as she eats. “Those poor tanks. I can’t imagine what they have to go through at Christie.”Lisa nods. “Yeah. I didn’t think I’d ever feel sorry for them.”Nancy sighs. “Well, the Ultra-Sherman’s safe at least.”You arrive at the huge line up of Black Forest Peak. All the Japanese Girls in black, gray, and red garb all look at you funny as you walk along. You’re suddenly feeling a bit smaller, but hell, they’re just a bunch of Japanese girls. What are they going to do to you?Still though, their line up is heavy on German tanks, all kinds of late war stuff too. Jagdpanthers, Jagdpanzers, Panzer IV Ausf H’s, Stug IIIs, Jagdtigers, King Tigers, Panzer IIIs, Stug IVs, and even the famed Tiger used by Michael Wittman himself.You see Maho, apparently in the midst of an interview with some reporters. You decide to walk up to her, however you’re immediately stopped. She yells what you assume to be halt in Japanese. Then proceeds to continue to speak to you in Japanese as if you understood her.> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29158215can we do all of that?
>>29158245I Dunno, maybe because the KV-1S is crap?And no, I didn't. No-one is using it. We don't need to upgrade it right now
>>29158262>PoliteI DON'T SPEAK JAPANESESay it slowly so she can understand
>>29158262> PoliteTry not to spaghetti.
>>29158262Smile and nod. Comment on the weather and their lineup, ignorant of what she's actually yelling.
>>29158262> PoliteCan she speak French at least?
>>29158262Holy shit, isn't that Tiger one of the ace's grandaddies then?
>>29158285At least the KV-1S has upgrade prospects, unlike the KV-1 which would cut them off entirely. If you feel like upgrading it, then get the KV-85.Also, I totally forgot that the T-34 was being used in the play.
>>29158215Out of good conscience, I want to have the Ultra Sherman to be back to normal, Just so we can use it against Christie is we fight them.I want the ordinence package/
>>29158215Wait... if we convert the Panther into a Tank Destroyer, can we convert it back?
Anyway, here's a short list.Type 97 Upgrade to Competition Spec: 10,000 PANZER IV AUSF. F1 (7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24): 5,000STUG III AUSF. F (7.5 cm KwK 37 L/43): 14,500Ordnance QF Bundle 30,000Improved Suspension 1 light 7 Meds 2 Heavies 8,750Total: 68,250That will let us upgrade an appreciable number of our tanks while still leaving some money for other stuff like dozers if we need them.The primary problem I have here is whether we want the Ordnance bundle. It'll let us upgrade 2 (3?) of our tanks to much better versions but the money could be spent elsewhere.
>>29158330So... are we going to use the "historically accurate" Post-War design, or the Isreali modifications to it (i.e. AMX-13 turret and autoloader, or 105mm gun)?
>>29158349What about the Ultra Sherman?We should convert it back since we have the money, we won't know when we will be able to
>>29158382We need to upgrade our current lineup, not convert a tank to stock for 50k.
This Anon's budget proposal:Improved Suspension for all tanks. 2x heavy, 1x Light, 6x medium - 8,000Churchill MK VII - 30,000That's all..for now.
>>29158382We should break the thing apart and sell it in pieces.
>>29158382it'll be a pet project on the side. we could strip out the illegal crap off it, but complete it later. we need to focus on our main tanks first.
> Polite“I don’t speak Japanese, I’m sorry.”The girl scowls at you. Oh, well fuck you too then. She looks over to one of the girls standing by the Jagdpanther. “Akaboshi-san!”The girl with slightly wavy brown hair walks over. Man, she looks a lot nicer. The first one speaks to her, a command you bet, then points to you.Akaboshi nods to you, smiling. “I’m Koume Akaboshi. This is Black Forest Peak’s Vice Commander, Erika Itsumi. Sorry for her rude manners, she did not know you did not speak Japanese.”You wave her off, smiling. “It’s fine! Language barriers do exist.”Erika says something, to which Akaboshi says, “Itsumi-san simply assumed you were one of the Walter Christie girls. But you’re not?”You shake your head. “Nope. We’re from Lafayette Girls Academy.” Erika scratches her chin, and then says something else, to which she begins laughing. “What’s she saying?”Akaboshi’s smile droops a bit. “She said that you were the children whom are attempting to play with us adults.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29158262> Polite>>29158411I know but I feel like if we don't do this, when are we? It's expensive so we should convert it now when we have the chance >>29158349I kind of agree except for the Panzer since no one is manning it.Also I think instead oof completing converting the stug we just buy the gun and suspension for it. it will be cheaper
>>29158482>BoastAt least we aren't Walter Christie!
>>29158482>BoastOh...do fuck off
>>29157098>It's not that the toggle bolt is superior, it's that the Luger, a handgun fielded for half a century, is historically relevant as a firearm that saw the two bloodiest wars on record.And as soon as they had a better service weapon the Germans replaced it almost immediately. There are still M1911s in the US military's inventory over a hundred years later.
>>29158482>> PoliteWe don't butcher our tanks like Walter Christie.
>>29158463>Churchill MK VII - 30,000That's a waste, the QF 75mm is worse than the 6 pounder when taking on tanks.Get the KV-85 instead.
>>29158482> NeutralHeard it all before, at least she's straightforward about it.
>>29158482> PoliteWe know she's a bitch but this girl is nice and we're representing our academy
>>29158482> PoliteI feel insulted she thought we were Walter Christie.
>>29158469good idea. at least we'll get some money from the parts.
>>29158463We can buy the ordinance package if anything. No need to completely convert the Churchill
>>29158486Oh right, there's no one in it. Do we WANT someone in it? We can have ten tanks in the first match. We might want to bring a full complement.
>>29158541VII continues the Churchill upgrade path, and the QF 75mm can fire HVAP rounds, which the 57mm can't.The Churchill is also not meant for breaking heavies, it's for taking point and abusing mediums and lights.
>>29158469We can keep the hull right? I want this tank to become the firefly in which our tank cannot be.I still think converting it as soon as possible is best
>>29158585>>29158604VII continues the upgrade path. It's not about breaking tanks, it's getting the Churchill to where it's unbreakable and to the eventual Black Prince.
>>29158604The Churchill is fine as it is, there's no pressing need for an upgrade for it.The KV-1S however, is in dire need of a new gun.
>>29158482> PoliteWe are at least not from Walter Christie. (Shiver in disgust)
>>29158631We could probably buy a stock Sherman for less then 50K
>>29158482> Neutraltell her, yes, we're new here. but even her little sister beat her with a worse line up than we had. in any case, we're not here to pick a fight. but to inform you are being mocked by Walter Christie with their Maus abomination.
>>29158661Not really, the bearclaw team did a pretty good job.Besides let's use the money on part upgrades not converting entire tanks.it will be cheaper for conversions later on
>>29158699And they could do an even better job if their gun wasn't complete crap.
>>29158678Then what do we do with it, I rather not just sell the thing considering that Kay did this in confidence and I rather not just take a place in the hanger.German is it possible to buy parts to lower conversion costs for the Ultra Sherman?
>>29158678>>29158740There's a Sherman chassis on the shop for 8 and a half, and it'd come with improved suspension and applique armor too.
>>29158523And? This the F4F Wildcat was replaced by the F6F Hellcat as soon as the navy was able to, but that doesn't discount the fact that it played a major role in naval aviation.
>>29158740Almost everything about the Ultra Sherman is illegal. Buying parts to replace might stem the cost, but you'd still have to convert it which will cost a hefty fee.> Polite“Well, we all are technically children, aren’t we?”Akaboshi nods. “Indeed. I apologize again for my Vice Commander’s words.”“No sweat. Just a bit of trashtalking,” you say. “I dealt some of it out when I was younger.”Akaboshi nods. “Nishizumi-sama and Itsumi-san are not in the best of moods. One of the teams we met was Walter Christie,” she says. She speaks good English. “It was not a fun time.”You nod. “I understand. Hobart’s nice though, she’s probably more clueless than anything.”Nancy nods. “Plus, Walter Christie’s proved itself in the North American Unlimited League. They seem to know what they’re doing.”“That,” says Akaboshi, “is what worries Nishizumi-sama.” As if on cue, Maho walks back, reporters in tow. Akaboshi and Itsumi turn around and bow to her. Maho notices you, then nods at you.One of the reporters notices you as well. “Hey, aren’t you from Lafayette Girls Academy?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>29158794What do we do with the Ultra Sherman then?>>29158799>Polite We should try to stem the cost a bit>>29158824No, Panzer 4 conversion.Also do the improved suspension before thinking of converting the Kv-1s and see if it is cheaper
>>29158824What about the Type 97?And as noted before, no one is in the Pz4 right now.>>29158799> PoliteRemember the Museum!
>>29158824Nobody drives the P4. Until we've got a crew for it we're spending, not investing, money, which is not a good place to be.I think I counted a different cost for the suspension package, but I can't do math well.I don't like the KV-85, I don't know about that Ordnance package.
>>29158903Ride it around campus and use it as a recruitment tool.You know, fan stuff.
>>29158917We can upgrade the Sentienel and Churchill with the Ordinance package.Also if we manage to fix the Ultra Sherman, we can turn it into a firefly
>>29158903>What do we do with the Ultra Sherman then?A symbol for motivating the crews.A MacGuffin for recruiting the rest of the Aces.Now please drop this agenda of sinking a lot of money on one single tank. We still have a school to save via winning the tourney.
>>29158799> Politewe should break the ultra down to parts and sell them. we still don't have enough money!
>>29158953We're not fixing the Sherman! It's too damned expensive!
>>29158960Those are good suggestions but I think we should convert it.not now but later on
>>29158963Keep the hull, see if we can convert it into a Jumbo or an A3 when funds permit?
>>29158993I'm not saying now, but later as a long term project
>>29158903Right, forgot that little detail.And if improved suspension makes it cheaper then we just ask Stchteel if that works and have him refund.>>29158917The KV-85 is a proven platform with a good gun, I can't possibly see why you'd object to it.TYPE 97 SHORT BARREL 120mm GUN TANK (VINTAGE) Upgrade to Competition Spec: 10,000 DollarsKV-85 (8.5cm D-5T): 23,000 DollarsOrdnance QF Bundle: 30,000Improved Suspension 1 light 7 Meds 2 Heavies: 8,75071,750
>>29158997...why? It's useless as an ITL-legal tank. It's better as a novelty/etc piece.If you wanted another Sherman you'd buy the chassis and go from there.
>>29159023fine, but we should sell the rest of it.

One at a time! Please. You’re going to kill me.” Everyone chuckles a little, and you can’t help but smile nervously. “Okay, uh… so for your questions. I first got into Tanks I guess at NOVA Tank Museum, that’s up near DC where I live. My family does approve of me doing Tankery. It feels great to be doing Tankery, and I started doing it because I wanted all my friends to enjoy it with me. Commanding a team is stressful, yes, but it’s rewarding. As for me being nervous, a bit, but that’s just pre-game nerves, it’ll pass.

One of them says, “Right boys, let’s take some pictures.” They all proceed to blind you with their huge amounts of flash photography for a brief few seconds, then leave on to continue making the news.You sigh. Smooth as pudding.Akaboshi and Itsumi walk up to you. Itsumi says something, to which Akaboshi says, “Itsumi-san compliments you on your ability to speak with the Journalists.”You nod. “Well, thanks. I’m sure Maho’s a bit more confident in the presence of reporters than I.”Itsumi scowls at you, then says something. “Itsumi-san requests that you not speak of Nishizumi-sama like that.”You raise an eyebrow. “Oh? Uh… Miss Nishizumi then?” Itsumi shrugs. “Alright then.” You look over at Maho. “Hey, Mah- I miss Miss Nishizumi. What’s up?”Maho nods at you, then motions Akaboshi over. She whispers into her ear, then Akaboshi says, “Nishizumi-sama wishes to congratulate you on attending the Tank Meet. She’d like to know if you will be participating in the Cannonade in an hour or so?”Nancy asks, “The Cannonade?”Akaboshi says, “To signal the start of the World Championship, all Tankery teams will load blanks in their tanks, then all will fire simultaneously.

Her first tank which her mother gifted to her and her sister Miho was a Panzer I Ausf. A.”You nod. “Just like our ITL Liaison. Is it a good tank?”Maho nods. “Nishizumi-sama says it is one of her favorites.”“Well, I can imagine so,” says Nancy. “They’re fast, mobile, and all that.”Itsumi says something, to which Akaboshi tells you, “Itsumi-san wishes to know if you’ve visited Walter Christie.”You nod. “We’ve did some business with them. I sold them a couple of tanks, and I bought their Ultra-Sherman off of them. Not to say I do Unlimited of course, it was a favor from Saunders.”“Itsumi-san understands, and notes that all Americans must do business with each other, no matter how heretical their sports may be.”… Is she talking about you?Nancy checks the time. “Ah, President.

You just gotta make sure you know your shit about tanks and follow the golden rule.” You look at Nancy for this. “You know the golden rule, right?”You and Nancy say simultaneously, “Do unto others as they would you!”Nancy giggles, then says, “Anyway, President. Our flight back to Lafayette Girls Academy has already been booked. We can make a quick trip back to the Hotel, pack our things, then take a bus to the airport. Sound good?”You nod. “Alright, that’ll be first priority once the Cannonade’s done.”You all arrive at your tanks. It appears William Adams has gone back for their own participation in the Cannonade. Cathy greets you, “Hey, Gertrude!”You nod. “Cathy, everyone!” All the crews gather around. “We’re going to be participating in the Cannonade in just a bit. Load blank rounds and get inside your tanks. Shit’s gonna be loud.”Everyone nods then heads to their stations. You all mount up in the Sherman. Ramirez assumes her position as loader, then takes up a blank shell and stuffs it into the breech. Nancy points the gun upwards like all other tanks are doing.Ramirez hands you some earmuffs, which you put on. No need to go deaf here.“Attention all teams!” shouts an ITL Official over the radio. “The Cannonade! Fire in 3!”“2!”“1!”What followed was quite possibly the loudest thing you ever heard in the history of ever.

Ashley, who has rejoined you, has reassured you that the tanks will be sent over to the USS Macon and Akron post-haste and should arrive tomorrow morning.As you pack, you ask Nancy, “So, Nancy, are we riding in a C-130 Hercules again?”She shakes her head. “ITL’s requisitioned a jetliner, a Boeing 777 to take us to Lafayette Girls Academy. Should be a nicer ride than the Hercules.”You nod. “Great! Admittedly, I did fall asleep on the Hercules, god knows what I’ll do on a comfortable jet.” You throw your fully packed dufflebag over your shoulder. “Well, girls, let’s get rambling.”You all leave a hefty tip inside the Hotel room, then proceed out the door.

>>29160875Horrible, Horrible people anon. That's who
>>29160740>boastIt was worth it got a lot of cash a new tank(a big fixer upper but maybe we can use the hull or as a pet project when we have the time) and made new friends
> Boast“Of course! It was a real hoot getting to see all the different teams and what not! And I figure we all learned something here.”Kitten looks at you, curious. “Oh?”You nod. “Well, I think seeing all those tanks, getting to know all those crews. I learned a couple of things. Hopefully now, we can start moving forward, put any mistakes we’ve made aside, and just roll on. That’s the American way isn’t it?”Kitten smirks. “Yeah, it is. Fuck yeah, America.”You nod. “America, fuck yeah.”The bus arrives at the airport in good time. Ashley shakes hands with everyone, happily saying goodbye to everyone.“Goodbye! I hope to see you again soon!” she says to you. “If you ever need anything,” she holds up a slip of paper with some numbers on it. “There’s my number!”You nod. “Thanks, it was nice seeing you, Ashley.”Ashley nods as she waves goodbye, walking away. “Bon chance!”You all proceed through the allotted security checkpoints and to your designated gate where the plane is docked. You enter the plane and find it not as crowded as you thought it’d be, but whatever. Time to book the emergency exit row. You all sit down and stretch your legs in this amazing leg room. Kitten sits down next to you, as does Nancy.> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Other
>>29160875Mad scientists exist. People that push the limits of biology well past the point of morality, legality and common sense and reason. Well past the point where they should have stopped, or should have been stopped by someone else.Why shouldn't mad engineers, that do the same with machines, exist too?
>>29160968> Read a Book (Anyone Can Cook)
>>29160968Tank shop. Wish list the su75b this is the last day before the list resetsRead a book
>>29161015No, because the SU-75 is overrated and might take up the slot of a actually good tank.
>>29160968>Study a Tankery Team (Specify)Ooarai. We may recognize the little girl we bumped into.
>>29160994Now that you think about it, if we had to build the ultimate tank out of the best tanks of the Second World War, what parts would it have?
>>29160968> Read a Book (Anyone Can Cook)Just two more after this and we can finally see that perk. And start bringing our own lunches, both for us and Kitten!
>>29161015SU-75 is a dead end piece of shit.
>>29161060What kind of tank? Light, medium, heavy, MBT?
>>29161060Mishmash of a Centurion and Sherman/Pershing, probably.
I wish we meet the Anzio team just for shits and giggles
>>29161060Just get a Centurion.
>>29161105Let's go with MBT, a universal tank.
>>29160968> Read a Bookfinish the cook book
>>29161134I think we researched them before, and they're actually competent in LGA canon
>>29161134well, if that is so, we can skip the fight and go right to the victory party.
>>29160740Gentlemen, I do believe that the History Club has declared war on Walter Christie.
>>29161177Anchovy was stated to be competent, but limited by poor tanks.
>>29161185So did Saunders and Black Forest >>29161177They still have a shit load of tankettes which they will most likely use in a fight
>>29161185As I'm sure we, Saunders, and really any respectable team have
> Read a Book (Anyone Can Cook)You shuffle through Anyone Can Cook, focusing again on basic cooking techniques, and all that stuff. Strange feeling actually, you feel like actually making something for dinner. You check the time. 5 PM. Eh, not bad, you might be home in time to cook dinner. You feel like you’re almost finished with the book.> Anyone Can Cook: Progress: 160%Kitten looks over at you. “Really?”You nod. “Really! Come on, I’ll figure out how to cook, and you’ll see! I’ll cook damn it!”Kitten says, “The minute you cook something without setting something on fire is the day that we get boyfriends.”You all laugh at that.“Oh, god,” you say. “We’re lonely.”Kitten agrees. “Yeah.”Nancy looks over. “Why don’t you just get boyfriends then?”“Because we suck at communicating with guys,” you say.> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Other

>>29161329We still need to read the Soldier of Tomorrow twice. It's due on Thursday.
>>29161377We can start reading it on Monday. Thank god for the bookstore and library
> Read a Book (Specify)You flip through the last few pages of Anyone Can Cook. Recipes, cooking techniques, and all that seems to start coming naturally to you. You keep on reading through the last bits, and finally ending at the afterword.“Congratulations on finishing this book! We believe in the creed that anyone who is anyone can cook, and if you have finished this, that means you now have the ability to cook! This book however, isn’t just a cookbook, it’s also a guide on how to cook, as most cookbooks neglect. Since you have finished this, know now that you can become a chef of a fancy restaurant with practice, as you can now cook!”> ANYONE CAN COOK PERK UNLOCKED: You can now cook food.You put the book back into your dufflebag and lean back. Resting your eyes wouldn’t hurt you suppose.…“Trudy?”“Let me guess, I fell asleep.” You check the time. 7 O’Clock. Not bad.You all get packed and start exiting the jetliner. After a nice walk through security checkpoints and through the crowded airport terminal, you all end up back on another chartered bus back to your dorms. You yawn, jetlag’s taking it out of you.The bus arrives back at the Sophomore dorms, and all the Sophomores dismount.> Head to your dorm> Head to your dorm (Invite Kitten, staff, or both)> Head to Kitten’s Dorm> Head to Kitten’s Dorm (Invite Staff)> Other

>>29160679My question is still this: Where the hell did she pull that from?
>>29161754She's the tank fairy. If it is tank related, she has it on her.

> Boast“Of course they will be! I made them!” You whistle. “Girls! Time for dinner! Burgers with cheese if you want it!”Everyone takes up a burger, including you, with double patties. Hey, you gotta relish that sweet victory you know? Lisa looks over the burger, skeptical. “You really cooked this?”You nod. “Indeed I did!”Kitten’s cellphone vibrates, to which she looks. “Hm, want to see Griselda’s response to the picture I sent her?”You nod. “Show me.” She holds up the cellphone to your view.“Haha, how’d you photoshop this, Kitten?”You roll your eyes. “Oh, ha ha. Very funny.” You wave it off. “Anyway, let’s dig in!”Everyone takes a bite at the same time.……Words can’t describe how good these burgers are.Nancy grins at you. “These are great, President!”Lisa nods, smiling. “Yeah, I’m loving the taste!”Kitten isn’t saying anything, she’s too busy wolfing down the entire thing. You figure it as her enjoying it.You giggle, slapping your hands on your cheeks. “YES! I FINALLY MANAGED TO COOK FOR ONCE!”You all scarf down the food, only saddened by the fact that there are no more patties. Nancy sucks on her fingers, savoring the taste still left there. “Gee, President. Those were some good burgers. I didn’t know you could cook so well!”You shrug. “My inability to cook safely must have impeded it.”Lisa lies back on the floor, mulling over it. “Well, it was good, Boss. All things considered. I’m stuffed!”Nancy gasps. “OH! Since we’re all here, how about an impromptu slumber party!?” Everyone happily. “Yay! What should we do, President!?”> Scary Stories> Movie> Pillow Fight> Other

> Pillow FightYou shout, “PILLOW FIGHT!”Lisa looks up, “Wait, what-“ She’s immediately flattened by a pillow from Ramirez. “AGH! RAMIREZ! YOU’RE GONNA GET IT!”Everyone immediately scatters and finds a nice good pillow. Lisa and Ramirez get to blindsiding each other at every opportunity, while Kitten tries to get at them from the side. You settle on whacking the ever loving hell out of Nancy as she laughs and tries to fight you off.Suddenly, you’re whacked in the chest by Kitten, flooring you onto your bed.Kitten shouts, “Gang up on the Leader!”Oh fuck.You laugh as everyone proceeds to beat you mercilessly with their comfy and soft pillows. “No! Stop! Stop!” They don’t listen.Good.You grab Kitten by the shirt and pull her close to your chest, and now SHE’S the one taking the hits.“Agh! Trudy, let go!” she says, laughing as she struggles to get free.“Too late! You’re my shield now, Kitten!”“Fuck your shield!” She does the worse thing imaginable to you. She starts tickling you. You let go of her, now laughing entirely uncontrollably. She regains her pillow and starts whacking you upside the chest and arms.“You suck, Kitten! Where’s your honor!?” You shout.“Alls fair in love and war!”Your laughs and pillow whacking echo out into the night.> END DAY
