You’ve actually been to France once as part of last year’s shore leave, but unfortunately your lack of knowledge regarding the language left you a bit wanting. NOT THIS YEAR. YOU ACTUALLY KNOW FRENCH.That’s pushing it, but it’s a completely true statement.You yawn as your stretch, getting the blood flowing and waking yourself up for today. No school, nothing really important to get done.There’s a couple of things though: One, you could go into Cherbourg and just enjoy yourself.Two: You could go to Walter Christie and pay them a visit.Three: Maybe there is something important to be done today.Anything you want done?> Enjoy Shore Leave> Visit Walter Christie> Embark on a Subquest (Specify)> We can figure this out later.> Other
>>29583211>We'll figure it out later>See if Trudy & Co can hop on the TGV and hit Paris for ~SHOPPING~http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTOYoLFCXIc
>>29583211> Enjoy Shore LeaveWith our crew of course!
>>29583211What can we do for 'The Flying Tigers!'? We gave them team money to start up, do they need more from us or will they bring it up later?Anyway,> Enjoy Shore LeaveAnd get as many of our crews as we can to hang out.
> Enjoy Shore LeaveEh, nothing wrong with wanting to see what you could do as filler until the match arrives. You take a nice brisk shower, brush your teeth, wash your hair, get breakfast inside you, and finish off by getting dressed out into some casualware, that blouse and that skirt Anna picked out for you, to be precise.You throw open the door and take in the French sunshine. You take a whiff and smell the salty sea air and the fruity scent of… well France. Guess you could say France is Lafayette Girls Academy’s spiritual home even. Not like anyone would particularly care about that though. You head on down to the ground level and-Wait, what’s that sound? Sounds like a plane.Of course, all that goes out the window when you end up ducking under the roar of a VERY low flying airplane.It flies past the dorms, and you can actually tell what the plane is, a World War II fightercraft to be precise. The model escapes you though.Kitten pokes her head out of the dorm. “The hell was that!?”You say, “Plane.”> Greet Kitten> Watch the Plane> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29583616> Watch the PlaneIs it Bearcat?Funnily enough I just got off War Thunder.
>>29583616> Watch the Plane
>>29583616> Greet Kitten> Watch the Plane
>>29583616> Greet KittenWe should make note to hang out with the sewing club specifically sometime.So we should schedule at least one extra practice this week. Tomorrow? Wednesday? I think tomorrow is best.
>>29583616>Greet Kitten>Call Someone (Aviation Studies Club)"Marina, a plane just buzzed our dorm."
> Watch the Plane> Greet KittenYou rustle Kitten’s already bedridden hair. She’s clad in just a blouse and her underwear. “Morning champ. Sleep well?”“I was,” she says, frowned. “We get buzzed or something?”You nod. “Like something out of Top Gun. Only thing we’re missing is coffee getting all over those nice tits of yours.”“Gee, thanks,” says Kitten tiredly.Suddenly, Kitten’s next door neighbor pops out of her dorm in her yellow pajamas. Surprise, surprise, it’s Marina. “DID WE JUST GET BUZZED?!”You nod. “Yeah.” You point to the plane, which is now circling overhead.Marina gasps in childlike awe. “Oooohh! It’s a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk!” She walks over to you, grinning in amazement. “It must be from one of the local Skycraft teams! Ooooh! This is awesome! I gotta go wake Katya, Lidya, and Jenny!” She runs off to the other dorms.By now, other Sophomores are exiting their dorms, groaning and mad that their morning sleep has been ruined. Lisa, Nancy, and Ramirez walk up to you, clad in their pajamas. “What the hell just happened?” asks Lisa.You say, “We got buzzed by that Warhawk. Apparently Marina says it’s from one of the local Skycraft teams.”Nancy nods. “Yeah, Great Britain, France, and Germany practice Skycraft extensively. It’s almost as popular as Soccer.”Lisa nods. “Of course. So, we doing anything today, Boss?”“Well,” you say. “I just wanted to enjoy ourselves on Shore Leave. How about we visit Cherbourg?”Nancy nods, excited. “Oh! That sounds lovely! Let’s all get dressed and we can go!” You pull up your smartphone and then pull up some nice tourist attractions.Any place you want to head out to?> A nice day spa> Musee de la Liberation> Cite de la Mer> A fancy restaurant> Other
>>29583929>Cite de la Mer>A nice day spa>Antagonize local French boys with antiquated WWII jokes at their expense
>>29583929>Musee de la LiberationAnd if we can roll in with the Sewing Club and their SOMUA, I think we'll get a good rep.Or sponsorship.
>>29583929> A nice day spa> A fancy restaurantPeople, it's FRANCE dammit.
>>29583929> A nice day spa> Musee de la Liberation
> A nice day spaA nice spa would be good. You’ve never actually been to a spa before so you’re not entirely sure what goes on in those places. Something about mudbaths, massages, lemons on your eyes or some shit. Crazy.You wait outside the dorm for a few minutes, then everyone returns, dressed out in some nice street clothes. Nancy in a white flowery dress, a black cardigan, and pantyhose. Lisa wearing a light blue blouse and some dark jeans with a nice flatcap on her head to go with it. Ramirez in some jeans, a red shirt, and a black vest. Kitten meanwhile has opted for the Tankery uniform.You ask her, “Why not that cute little sundress Anna picked out for you?”“Over my dead body.”You roll your eyes. “Fine,” you say, then you turn to your staff. “Let’s take Cupid out for this, shall we?”You all leave the dorms and head out for the Tankery HQ where your tanks are located.> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29583929> Musee de la LiberationIsn't today the day we will visit Walter Christie?Are we going to see them later?
>>29584224>Converse CasuallyWe're on vaycay, no work talk
>>29584224>Talk TanksWhat the heck? I just got in and we didn't go see Walter Christie didn't we decided to visit them today?Also shouldn't we be focusing on getting sponsorships or work or something, our batle with them is this saturday?
>>29584224>Converse CasuallyI actually thought Nancy would head for Sunday mass first, then off to the old folks homes or something.
>>29584224>OtherTake a German tank, and write "Elsaß-Lothringen is German!" and "Remember 1871" on it with chalk.Then go for a drive
>>29584281No. Shore leave, motherfucker.
>>29584291Planning on endearing us to the locals anon?
>>29584224> Talk TanksShouldn't we be working?
>>29584300Frenchies gotta know their place
>>29584305Sunday bitches.Gotta take time off here and then.
>>29584299We choose France because we have a match this Saturday?Also didn't Walter Christie open their doors to us for today?
>>29584300>>29584324Too bad we don't have a Tiger to roll around in.
>>29584342You say that like we actually want to go to Walter Christie.
>>29584371I do, I think we missed an opportunity here
>>29584342Yes. But going on the town is certainly better than that.
>>29584224> Talk Tanks
>>29584342I think it was for dinner anyways.So...plenty of time. Also, it seemed non-optional-ish, since Perrine was going to forcibly abduct Wendy.
>>29584360Wait, where Tigers even used against France?
>>29584408Michelle.Though we can do her a favor and pretend she's gotten mysteriously ill.>>29584414Well, there's always the Panzer IV.
>>29584408That was for the Dinner with Willaim Adams.That was different.>>29584414Also considering what we've been preparing for, I feel is rather unproductive?I wouldn've have been at least fine visiting the musuem
>>29584442She'd probably thank us for it too
>>29584408>PerrineNo matter what anime, game, or quest, this always rings true
>>29584408>WendyMichelle, but yes the point still stands. And maybe Wendy will get roped in to visit too eventually, along with the rest of the Aces.
> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks“Oh, Nancy. Shouldn’t you be at mass this morning?”Nancy says, “Chaplain Provoost excuses me from mass every now and again, mostly so I can get schoolwork done.”Kitten asks, “He excuse you today?”“Yep! Just so I can spend time with you all!” she says happily. You smile a little at that. “So, where are we going to head, President?”You say, “I found a walk-in spa. Get our massages and our skins healthy… and stuff like that, I have no idea how spas work.”Kitten says, “Neither do I.”“Actually,” says Lisa. “I don’t think any of us have ever been to a spa.”Ramirez asks, “You think we could use a tank as a steam room?”You’re about to make a clever comment, but then say, “… That actually makes some amount of sense. It does get hot in those tanks doesn’t it?”Nancy nods. “Very!”“… We should totally try that sometime.”Lisa asks, “We going to visit Walter Christie today? Much as their hobby irks us, they seem pretty friendly.”“We might,” you say. “Actually, I wonder what their line up is going to be for the next match. Strange line up. SU-14-2, AVRE, M3 Lee CDL, etcetera.”You all arrive at the warehouse. Before you actually mount up in your tank however, you hear a noise out of the far reaches of your ear. Suspicious.> Investigate> Eh, it’s probably nothing> Other
>>29584469Walter Christie will be a burning wreck once Wendy and Bolter are through with it.And everyone rejoiced.
>>29584503>InvestigateHuh? What was that noise?
>>29584503> InvestigateSpy in red base!
>>29584571You mean spy in the blue base
> Investigate“Something wrong, Boss?” You silence Lisa by holding your hand up. You take a walk to where you think you heard it. It was a bit faint, but it was definitely noticeable. Your crew follows you in silence.You say, “I think I heard something.”Nancy says, “Maybe it’s a burglar?”“How could you burgle a tank, Nancy?” asks Lisa.“It’s just a thought,” Nancy responds.You slowly walk over to the source. The Panzer IV Ausf. C. You climb up the side of the hull, then open up the side turret hatch. Your curiosity becomes even greater as you see the entire Ace Crew stuffed into the turret basket, apparently playing a game of poker. You can see some foodstuffs as well in places where shells would normally go, along with blankets and other items. They all look at you, nonchalant.Joanna says, “Oh, hey.” She gestures to the cards. “Want in?”> “What are you doing in there?”> “How long have you been in there?”> “Sure.”> Other
>>29584675>“How long have you been in there?”>"I didn't think I'd need to say it but please stop huffing coolant"
>>29584675>> “How long have you been in there?”>> “Sure.”>OtherPlay a game then invite/drag them to go thing we were suposed to be doingThere obviously playing poker
>>29584675> “How long have you been in there?”
>>29584675>Lemme guess, you're avoiding Perrine and camping out here.
>>29584675> “How long have you been in there?”> "Lemme guess, you all bunkered down because of Perrine?"
>>29584675>> “Sure.”LET'S PLAY SOME POKER!
>>29584727>>29584734If ol' Dr Tankenstein was after me, I'd hide too.
Also wasn't Autang Panzer 70% percent
> “How long have you been in there?”> Other“Perrine tried to come for you all, didn’t she.”Michelle nods. You also notice that the Aces are still clad in their Tankery uniforms from last night as well. Michelle says, “She called me in the morning, said she’d be coming. So we all grabbed some supplies and hunkered down in the Panzer IV until she left.”Nancy pokes her head in. “That’s not very nice.”Kate says, “Well, we don’t want to say no. She’s…” She rubs her fingers together on one hand, pensive. “She’s too nice to say no to. I think.”Wendy says, “Maybe you all should’ve just fucking said no.”Octavia scoffs. “Well, leave it to Wendy to oversimplify things. If it were up to you, we would’ve sank Walter Christie and turned it into an artificial reef.”“Well why don’t we?” says Wendy.Joanna looks back at you. “It’s surprisingly roomy when you get rid of most of the shells. We’re planning on staying here for a day or two until she gives up.”You asks, “And if she doesn’t?”The Aces are silent. Kate says, “We actually hadn’t planned for that.”You’re about to say something when you hear the familiar roar of a tank engine and the sound of AC/DC. A Hellcat? Wait, no one around here owns Hellcats except-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gDch1p4c_MoshitJoanna immediately closes the hatch. You all stand outside the Panzer IV as Perrine’s M39 AUV rolls into the warehouse, blasting AC/DC out the loudspeakers. The M39 stops just in front of you, and the engine idles. Perrine hops out of the driver’s position, clad in her mechanic’s jumpsuit from the Tank Meet. “Gertrude!” she says. She opens her arms wide again. “Hugs!”> HUGS?> Y/N> Other
>>29584820If that's the case, we need to remind them that Perrine could easily just tow the Panzer IV into Walter Christie's schoolship.They'll get a tank's eye view of the wonders of their school! Wouldn't that be nice?
>>29584901HELL YES! HUGS!
>>29584901> NDamn, we should've followed the Aces' example.
>>29584901>> YWHY THE FUCK NOT
>>29584901> NWe hugged her once, that was too much.
>>29584901>NNot this time!
>>29584901> Ygirl has good taste in music
>>29584901> OtherGroup hug that'll muffle the noise and block their line of sight on the Panzer IV!
>>29584901>N>>29584916We'd have to them the tank first, ie, over our dead body.
>>29584901> ywhy not
>>29584901> YNo need to be rude.
>>29584967>>29584963>>29584987>>29584941>>29584926Why are you denying hugs? Hugs are awesome!
>>29584901> NI like our chest intact.
>>29584901> YI am starting to like her
>>29585024I don't wanna hug that monster
>>29584901> N>>29585024Presumably because it's hugs with Perrine.
>>29584901> NHe'll no.
>>29584901>>YI enjoy her
>>29584901>YJust give her the hug, why every time she shows up we are trying to be a dick to her
>>29584901> Ytheir is no reason to not hug her
>>29584901> N>>29585118Walter Christie's tanks disagree.
>>29584901>YSure why not
>>29585048>>29585053But she's nice!
>>29584901> Ypeople stop being dicks
>yWhat the fuck is wrong with you peopleSure she has a bad hobby but she's a nice person.
> HUGS?> Y/N> OtherYou simply stand there awkwardly. After a few seconds, Perrine looks at you, confused. She blinks. “No hugs?” You shrug, smiling nervously. Perrine frowns, looking genuinely hurt. Oh god no not a guilt trip pleaseNancy slides in over. “Hugs!”Perrine brightens up again. “Yay!” She grabs Nancy in a very tight bearhug, sucking all of Nancy’s air out. She puts Nancy back down, giggling. Nancy rubs her back, grinning as well.You ask, “So how are you doing, Perrine?”“Doing great!” says Perrine. “I’m just looking for my most favorite cousin, Michelle. She wasn’t at her dorm and she’s not answering her calls, can you believe that?”Yes. “No.”Perrine places her hands on her hips, pursing her lips. “Nice tanks you got here though. I especially love your Churchill, it’s a nice versatile tank.”You nod. “Thanks, Freshmen love it too. They call it Earl.”Perrine chuckles. “I call mine, Ray. Everyone knows it though as the Ragin’ Cajun. I was originally going to use it in the Unlimited line up, replace the Mortar with a 90mm-” There’s a loud bang from the Panzer IV. “What was that?”> “Nothing.”> “Totally nothing.”> “Nothing except the Aces in there.”> Other
>>29584901> NI can live with being a dick.
>>29585128They can't disagree. They are tanks.
>>29585155> “Totally nothing.”
>>29585155>> “Nothing.”Gee guys, way to guilt trip Trudy.
>>29585155>Nothing>Distract her quickly
>>29585155>NothingNice save nancy
>>29585155>>29585155That was not your cousin and her entire crew...... Trudy is a terrible liar...
>>29585155> “Nothing.”Gee, Nancy took the hit for us. I wonder why?
>>29585155> "Nothing."Take this conversation away from the garage.Besides, us and the crew need to rol out.
>>29585213Because she's a better person than us.
>>29585163Doesn't mean trude should be one. There are respective business partners and we were rude. Not to mention Nancy took the hit for us and we guilt trip Trude.How come whenever we deal with Perrine we act like a dick to her?
>>29585155> Just a seagull. Damn things get everywhere. You don't get any on your carrier? We call them the flying rat here.
>>29585248She practices the most vile form of heresy of course.
>>29585155>Nothing>Hey did you see that Warhawk this morning?
>>29585309They are machines. Grow up.
>>29585309So we deal with the Willaim Adams girls and Frendel and we act formal to them at least but when Perrine shows up, we try to act like an ass.She may be heretical but we dealt with worse people then her. Which bothers me since she's trying to be nothing but nice to us even if she deals with a bad hobby.
>>29585339Perrine is a fictional character. Grow up.
>>29585367A fictional character we do business with
>>29585383We did business once and regret it
>>29585339>>29585354I know anon, but at least I can control my autism and not appear to be a dick around her. I can't say the same about the feelings of the rest of the anons with a massive Perrine-hateboner
> “Nothing”You shrug. “Oh, it was probably nothing.”Perrine nods. “Hm, strange.” She says, “Anyway, Gertrude, I suppose you haven’t seen my cousin around?”You shake your head. “Nah, not this morning at least. We actually got buzzed by a Warhawk, what about you?”Perrine nods violently. “Oh yeah! One of the local school’s operates a Skycraft team! Mostly Warhawks and Hawks. It’s a very interesting sport.”Lisa asks, “Your school have a team?”Perrine shakes her head. “Nah. I don’t really know anything about planes, plus there’s no Unlimited for Skycraft. I’d be totally interested then!” She snaps her finger. “Speaking of which, are you going to come by and visit today?”You say, “Maybe. We wanted to take a walk around Cherbourg, visit a spa.”“Oh, that’s lovely!” Perrine clasps her hands together. “You know, if you guys ever have Shore Leave in Japan, you all should visit the baths. They are amazing!” She walks over to the M39. “Anyway, I suppose they’re not here. Come by and visit when you like, even you don’t get the chance to today, alright?”You nod. “Will do!”With that, Perrine hops in and starts blasting some Black Sabbath. The M39 backs out of the warehouse and leaves out of sight.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGPD0ZBiMs0> Talk to the Aces> Mount up and head out> Call Someone (Specify)> Other

>>29585575No. Being rude is never necessary. Which is why he should grow up.Sometimes fun though.
> Talk to the AcesYou open up the hatch. “She’s gone.”Michelle sighs in relief. “Thank god for that. Honestly, thank you so much, Gertrude.”“Really though, Michelle,” you say, “You probably shouldn’t avoid your family like that. Perrine seems really nice. Her hobby… eh. But, still.”Michelle shrugs. “I’ll keep that in mind.”Kate looks over at you. “What are you doing to do now?”“Head to a spa,” you say. “You guys interested?”They all shake their heads. “Nah, we’re going to hold here until it’s safe,” says Octavia. “See you round though.”You nod and say, “See you all.” You shut the hatch and head over to Cupid the Sherman tank.

However she keep made some revision and revision that clash with your vision until you give up, giving her some weird design instead, which she like.And what frustrate you, she is nice and generous to you.

>>29585721Although expressed in broken, ESL, yeah basically more or less.
> Read a Book (Achtung, Panzer!)You lean back in the seat and flip through Achtung, Panzer! The easy ride in this Sherman makes pretty much everything feel that much more comfortable. Your crew idly chatters amongst itself as the tank rolls out to the loading area, is offloaded onto the pier, and rolls into Cherbourg itself. You hadn’t even realized.> Achtung, Panzer!: Progress: 80% (Or 70%. I’ll have to go back and look.)You turn out the hatches, Nancy fitting through the Commander’s cupola with you while everyone else has their own hatches. You take in a huge whiff of air. Wine, bread, the music of France. You’re waved through customs by the attendant Naval Studies Merchant and Hall Monitors then you’re on the road.“So, Boss,” asks Lisa. “What spa did you pick?”You shrug. “I dunno, Lisa. It looked damn nice though.”You give Lisa the directions to the spa, and after about a half hour sitting in traffic and rolling through the high buildings of Cherbourg, you arrive at the humble looking spa.You walk in, and are immediately hit with the smell of flowers. “Whoa! That’s strong as hell!” you say. The five of you walk up to the reception desk and ring the bell. A very perky young woman in white clothes immediately slides into your view.“Bienvenue sur Le Tigre boueux!”Hey, you know some of the words. “Bonjour, parlez-vous anglais?”The woman nods. “Yes!

>>29586167Nah she prefers those chinese cartoon porns
> Manicures/PedicuresYou’ve all been disrobed in favor of nice little white robes. You and your crew sit in comfy chairs as spa personnel begin cleaning, trimming, and in general just working your nails like they do in those commercials.The girl doing your nails asks you in surprisingly good English, “So you girls are doing Armourcraft?”You nod. “Yep. Guessing you saw our Sherman when we came in here then?”The girl nods. “Ah, oui oui. Very interesting thing. My daughter actually wants to do Tankery.”You say, “She already on an Academyship?”She shakes her head, “Nope. Will be in about two years.”“Ah, well good luck to her.”Nancy says, “It’s a real thing getting our nails done! I love it!”Lisa says, “Yeah, but Nancy, we work with tanks. Our nails are going to get dirty, chipped, maybe even gouged out while we’re working.”Nancy, still smiling says, “Lisa. Please don’t ruin this for me.”Kitten meanwhile says, “Why do I have to get my nails done?”You say, “Because, Kitten, if you don’t clean your nails, you’re going to get a hangnail and that stuff isn’t the most nicest thing.”Kitten scoffs. “Whatever.”> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Massage> Facial treatment> Baths

Sit here until this mud makes us look prettier?”Nancy says, “Well, Kitten, it’s not just looks. It’s for the healthiness of your face!”“If I wanted mud on my face, I’d just wait for it to rain,” says Kitten.Lisa says, “Hey, this isn’t just mud, Kitten. This is specially made stuff for the face.

Steam fills the room as you relax in the baths, now completely nude.Nancy rises out of the water, bringing her arms up and groaning. “Whoo! This has been an incredible visit!”Your stomach growls. “Yeah, it’s just lacking lunch though.”Lisa says, “We can go and have lunch once this bath stops being comfortable.”“I’d starve to death by then, Lisa,” you say. Lisa giggles a little at that. You look over at Kitten, who’s fast asleep on your shoulder. You flick her on the forehead, waking her up. “Hey, Kitten. Don’t fall asleep.”“Huh?” Kitten rubs her eyes. “Oh, I fell asleep? That’s something. I could’ve drowned.”You say, “Well, you could’ve also gotten sick too. Don’t want my little Kittycat bedridden-“ you rustle her hair, “-Now do I?”[1/2]
>>29587433[2/2]Nancy lowers herself down to you. “Oh yeah!” she says, “Which tank do you think we could use as a steam room?”Lisa says, “Is that even possible? Won’t the metal just cook us? And not like in a good way?”“Well, it can’t hurt to try?” says Nancy.“I’d say the Churchill,” you say. “It’s roomy in there, I hear.”Lisa nods. “Churchill is pretty roomy. Get rid of the shells maybe, you’d have enough space for maybe six people. Then you can just steam bath to your leisure.”Kitten says, “Why are we even talking about converting our tanks into steam rooms?”You say, “These are important questions, Kitten.”After about a half of discussing the merits of whether or not a tank could even be used as a steam room, your bath is over. You pay for the walk-in service then exit the spa. You all feel extraordinarily fresh, pretty, and vigorous.Your stomach disagrees with you though. There’s plenty of cafes and small restaurants to have a nice lunch. Indeed, you actually spot a nice Tank Café just down the street. You could always go back home though.

I’ll hand the phone back to Michelle here.” There’s a brief pause, then Michelle speaks.“You’re coming?”“Well, can’t leave a man behind, can I?”“Well, I suppose it’d be a nice excuse to get out of here. Wendy looks like she’s about to bust a gasket.”“Of course, we’ll see you there.”You hang up, then spend the rest of your lunch eating and talking idly about such unimportant topics like the weather, the nature of suspension in a tank, and the superiority battle between 76.2mm rounds and 75mm rounds. Nancy says she much prefers 76.2.Won’t blame her, the 76mm on Cupid is pretty much a 76.2.Regardless, you tip the waitress as you leave, then head on back to your Sherman. Traffic isn’t so much of a killer, and you end back at the docks in good time. The Hall Monitors wave you through, and you end up on Walter Christie’s loading elevator.You look up at Walter Christie, a huge ship. Lisa says, “12 Kilometers in length. It’s actually an elevator school. Most High School students can go right into college there.”Nancy looks over at you as the elevator begins rising. “What do you think it’s like?”> Boast – “Whatever it is, we’ll weather it.”> Neutral – “I don’t know.”> Polite – “I’m sure it’s a nice place.”

>>29589103Well, you've got a bunch of high school and college girls that find ways to modify, improve, or otherwise customize old tank designs with modern parts, old parts, new parts, and reproduction parts. It wouldn't be too far to assume that DARPA plucks the topmost prospects for state-funded projects. I mean hell, that kind of job security combined with years of hands-on experience would make students that come out of Walter Christie highly desirable.

> Boast“Whatever it is, we’ll weather it, girls.”The loading elevator reaches the apex, right on the deck for Walter Christie. Your Sherman is waved through by Christies’ Merchant students, and you end up rolling in through to Christie’s loading area. There, you see Hobart and your Ace crew, gathered around Perrine’s M39.Lisa stops the tank in front of them, idling the engine. Perrine walks up to you. “Hey, Gertrude!”You hop on down from the turret and greet her politely. “Perrine, nice to see you again.”Perrine claps her hands together, smiling. “So, ready to see the Workshop and the Factory?”You shrug. “As I’ll ever be.” You look over at the Aces. “You guys coming?”They’re quiet for a second, then Kate says, “Actually, we should get going.”Michelle nods violently. “Yeah yeah! Totally! We’ve got uh… tank stuff… to do. You know.”Smooth criminal, Michelle.Perrine frowns. “Oh really? But you didn’t even see the hangar? We’ve got lots of surplus stuff lying around and maybe-“The Aces all walk away. Wendy says, “Oh, we wouldn’t to do anything we’d regret, Perrine.”Octavia nods. “Yeah! Uh, bon chance or however they say it in New Orleans, okay?” They quickly make an emergency relocation out of the area.Perrine looks sad. “Huh. You ever get the feeling someone doesn’t like you?”You smile, patting Perrine on the shoulder. “Don’t worry about it. So?”Perrine nods, grinning again. “Oh yeah! Hop on my M39. I’ll have the Merchant kids take care of your Sherman for you.”Your crew hops onto some of the seats of the M39.

It was effective enough against P3s/P3-chassis vehicles, but didn't do so much against thicker 4s/Panthers/Tigers/etc.American 76mm will probably be more useful at a variety of ranges, including HVAP ammunition. Soviet crews had their own sub-munitions but I don't know how they performed vis a vis HVAP/etc

> Talk with PerrinePerrine decides to blast more rock music as you all drive.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWXRintPmGQ“So, Perrine,” you ask. “What’s the Factory and the Workshop like?”Perrine says, “Oh, it’s wonderful! Basically what we do there is take tanks apart or restore them based on what we need at the moment! There are three basic areas, the renovation, the replication, and the restoration areas. In renovation, we work on tanks for the Unlimited line, modifications and stuff like that! Replication, we build new tanks from ITL-approved blueprints! Restoration is as it implies, we restore old tanks!”Nancy asks, “Is it hard?”Perrine nods. “Oh most definitely! But things have been slowing down a bit, the projects we have right now are mostly trials for tanks in the Unlimited League, the Chi-Ri, and a couple of conversions. Nothing too difficult. You should see us before seasons, we’re busier than rats in a bar!”The M39 stops right outside the very imposing factory building. You assume that to be Perrine’s Factory. You all hop out and Perrine walks ahead, motioning you on as if she’s leading you on to Candyland.As you walked in, you realize Candyland this ain’t.It does very much look like a conventional factory, there are students here and there either in uniforms or jumpsuits working on tanks. You can see some welding a roof kit onto a Hellcat, or some replacing the suspension on a Panther, and what looks to be a platoon’s worth of students around the huge Chi-Ri tank.Your crew appears to be in awe at it all. You as well, to a bigger extent. This is the first time you’ve ever actually seen tanks so… naked. In a manner of speaking.Perrine smiles, looking at you. “Welcome to the Jungle.”Which do you check out first?> Restoration> Replication> Renovation> Ask Perrine a Question> Other
>>29589687> Anything but Renovation

>>29589687>> RenovationGet this out of the way
>>29589687> RenovationWell this should certainly be interesting.
>>29589721ITL legal Hellcats, Wolverines, and Jacksons are pretty neat. Getting some of those late war 3 inchers or 90mms would be pretty fucking rad.Plenty of opportunity for one of those 90mm GMCs to score lots and lots of kills with good radio contact and HVAP.
>>29589687> RestorationThe only safe option
>>29589760How's the off road capability on those tanks?
>>29589790Very good. We (as in, America(ns)) used TDs are the primary method of destroying tanks, not other tanks.They were very light, very fast, with (very) large guns. The Hellcat scoots at like, 40 or 50 MPH on roads and like 30 otherwise. Wolverine slightly less so. Jackson is similar performance to the Wolverine. Might've gotten a more powerful engine, not sure.
>>29589760The Achille and M36 are pretty similar, biggest difference is the Achille having a Manual Traverse turret and it being less armored, however the M36 has heavier shells.Ballistics are relatively equal.>>29589790Better power to weight of Shermans and lower ground pressure
>>2958984090mm HVAP/sub-munition penetrators/etc probably outperform 17pdr HVAP.Probably.Besides, there's some southern pride to be had in a Jackson.
> RestorationYou all stand by as the students work on the Chi-Ri. Next to the Chi-Ri is a long barreled gun. Some are working on the finicky suspension, others are working on fitting the hull mounted 37mm gun, the only thing the Chi-Ri is really lacking is turret.You ask, “Why doesn’t this tank have a turret?”Perrine says, “Turret was crushed when we found it underwater. We’re building a new one to-“ Perrine motions to the ITL Official, Judge Kanon Sasogawa, “-Miss Sasogawa over there. We’ve pulled a lot of manpower for this, gotta get it ready in the next couple of weeks or so.”Nancy says, “Didn’t you say you’d have it ready in a couple of months?”Perrine grins. “Well, the original plan was to restore it and then replicate it for the Unlimited League. But, we were called up by Chi-Ha-Tan. Turns out they’re willing to shell out a lot of money for it.”You nod. “So what gun does it use?”Perrine says, “Type 5 75mm. Single tray autoloader too, means it’ll put out an insane rate of fire, at least in comparison to say, the Tiger or the Panther. Projected ground pressure is pretty nice too, along with a decent speed and pretty decent armor too. We originally wanted to use a Type 99 88mm but acquiring one has been relatively difficult and we decided the 75 would be sufficient.”Kitten says, “Neat. Chi-Ri’s a pretty good tank in World of Tanks.”Perrine laughs. “Oh! You slay me, World of Tanks.”> Replication> Renovation> Ask Perrine a Question> Other

>>29590044True, but HVAP isn't something that's cheap. I don't actually know how they go about procuring ammunition in the GuP world.One thing I did forget to mention is that the Achille puts out 10rpm, and the M36 8rpm.Honestly the Achille seems like a better choice because it has lighter shells, which are easier for teenage girls to handle. However, if you do go with the 17 Pounder, you might as well use a Firefly

> ReplicationYou all stand by the side as another ITL Official, Judge Remi Takashima supervises the student construction of an M4 Sherman. The Hull is lacking a turret, the suspension, the tracks, and even the hull mounted machine gun. More students appear to be lowering in a engine by crane.“You build a lot of replicas?” you ask.Perrine nods. “We’re one of the few places that does it. ITL is really finicky who they choose to build replicas. We have to pass all kinds of tests and such, plus we have to have constant supervision from ITL officials when we build replicas. And if they aren’t exact and I mean exact, they have to be scrapped completely.”Nancy says, “Ouch. Does that happen a lot?”Perrine nods, smile unfading. “A lot, yes. We mostly use some of the invalids as Unlimited tanks.”Lisa points to the Sherman. “So this is a replica then?”“Yep, we build mail-order replicas and send them to schools who want it. General build time can take anywhere from two weeks to a whole month depending on the model. Tigers for instance can take months to replicate properly. We’ve only ever built two.”You nod. “And the Hellcats?”Perrine laughs. “The Hellcats are a popular one to replicate among our freshmen.

>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”Not feeling it.
>>29590319> Ask Perrine a Question"Say, you're pretty intimate with how the ITL judges whether a tank is tankery worthy. If ever we decide to stick a KwK 49 L/43 on a StuG III Ausf. E, would the ITL allow it?"Also, ask about the surpluses.
>>29590319>> RenovationWhat the hell guys? Let's just see and maybe we can look at the surplus

>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”Nein.
>>29590319>> “We should go Perrine.”Good God no.
>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”I'm fine about asking about the kits and whatnot, but I'm staying away from that building.
>>29590319>> Renovation>> Ask Perrine a QuestionAsk about the open top turrets, the mail order stuff, and the surplus
>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”Fine with asking, but I want out.
>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”Ask about stuff, then NOPE out of there.

>>29590319I think this is the first time, we did not fully explore an area.> RenovationYou guys are terrible, this is not good business relations
>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”But ask about the surplus stuff first.
>>29590649not understanding the hate for moding tanks they are just metal
>>29590319Why do we not want to explore the renovations?
>>29590319> “We should go Perrine.”>>29590649Business relations can go kiss my ass.
>>29590319I still do not understand all the hate for this> Renovation
>>29590687Because a lot of these people are butthurt that a few vintage IFV's got customized. In many ways, they probably know their tanks a lot better than we do--I mean hell, they've got the balls to field an SPG and tacked a high-tier school in the first round of the tournament. They deserve as much respect as Ooarai or Pravda.
>>29590319We're going to stop the tour half way is kind of rude > Renovation> Ask Perrine a QuestionLet's use this time to ask her about the tanks and surplusFrendell is much worse and we Perrine and her crew much more hate
>>29590319we need to use the number voting to stop the samefagging
>>29590739>They deserve as much respect as Ooarai or Pravda.You're funny
>>29590319> RenovationI thought Trude was a nice guy,
> “We should go, Perrine.”You point your thumb back at the entrance. “Uh, maybe we should go, Perrine.”Perrine gasps, shocked. “Oh no! Are you sure? You haven’t even seen the Panther we’re working on!”Lisa says, “We probably don’t need to.”“Still!” Perrine walks up to you, holding her hands together and pouting like mad. “There’s so much left for you to see!”You sigh. “Well, Perrine. I mean-“ You’re interrupted by the sound of the side hull of the Sherman falling over flat. “Well. Tell you what, how about you walk with us, talk with us?”You all head out of the building and back onto the M39. You ask Perrine, “So, do you make a lot out of this mail-order stuff?”Perrine nods, her smile faded a bit. “Yeah.” She starts up the M39. “We mostly use the money to fund the Unlimited team, plus some of it goes to the school as well. Because of how much money we make, we even get to keep the Tournament winnings for ourselves!”You whistle. “That’s great.” The M39 starts off onto the road. “What about the surplus stuff?”“Mostly chasses and leftover tanks no one wants. A lot of them are waiting on either restoration or renovation. That or we use them for extra scrap metal. Why, you want any of them?”You shrug. “I considered it.”“Well, I’ll call you later if we have any that aren’t slated for any of the R’s.”[1/2]
>>29590400> would it be possible to commission WC to build a tank for us?Feels like a double edged sword.Two weeks minimum build time, and we'll be funding a tourney rival team.I'm guessing when we're really, really desperate, that's when this option becomes a possibility.I thought we'd be able to acquire a tank that's at least something close to the wishlisted Tiger II (that's also worth Eliting) before the match with William Adams, but seeing as how our options are dwindling down on that, we really should consider spending the money for upgrading the Sentinel, StuG and Panzer IV.
>>29590319>> Renovation>>29590780They kind of due considering, and at this rate, I'm actually rooting for them
>>29590792[2/2]With that, you all arrive at the loading area, where the Merchant kids have taken to having dinner on top of your Sherman. Lisa and Ramirez quickly climb out of the M39 to scare them off, Nancy following reluctantly. You and Kitten are about to go, before Perrine stops you. “Wait, Gertrude. Can I talk to you?” You nod, motioning Kitten to go on without you. You stand by the M39 as Perrine nervously rubs her hands together.“What’s up?” you ask.Perrine looks at you, concerned. “… We’re friends right?”You raise your eyebrow. “Friends?”“Well- Not friends per say. Associates. Uh… someone who can at least tolerate me?”You cross your arms. “What do you mean, Perrine?”Perrine steps off the M39 and kicks at the ground, now finding it more interesting. “Well, I must admit to you, Gertrude. I don’t really have a lot of friends. It seems like I really scare off people for some reason, even my own cousin doesn’t tolerate me.” You shrug. “Well, I suppose the Unlimited thing has kinda taken a toll on your social life?”“Well, the Unlimited girls like me, but- I mean, we’re more like co-workers. I’d like an actual friend. Someone to talk to, occasionally. I mean, first time I talked to you, you seemed polite, and you’ve really been nice to me so far!”You say, “Well, it’s rude to just be rude to others on principle.”She gestures to you. “But you can at least think of me as a friend right?”> YOU CAN THINK OF HER AS A FRIEND, RIGHT?> Y/N> Other
>>29590780dude their is no reason to hate them your acting like they cut people up in a back ally and force them into becoming combat cyborgs
>>29590739>They deserve as much respect as Ooarai or Pravda.
>>29590815>YCouldn't we just humor them with the renovations
>>29590832skill wise they are likely better then Pravda
>>29590815>YCan't we just see the Renovations department? I mean, what we're doing is pretty much tantamount to not visiting the showroom floor after visiting all the other parts of a factory tour. It's downright dickish, is what it is.
>>29590904Do you like seeing tanks butchered?
>>29590934dude they are just tanks
>>29590904I know but considering the hate that anons and the named guys dislike for modded tanks in which our host is proud of?They really make that clear despite the host herself being nothing but considerate we kind of snuffed her
>>29590934It's not a matter of tanks being butchered it's a matter of being considerate to our hosts, and for the more pragmatic/practical they could help us>>29590944We're not having this discussion again
>>29590815>YI really feel we treat her more like shit then we do Frendell
>>29590934Well why don't you consider this as heresy? What makes it different from the rest? I bet when this was introduced in Cold War Tankery, everyone was pissed off.
>>29590815"When you called me friend, did you really mean it?"
>>29590904The decision has been made as much as I disliked it. we should at least tolerate her hobby
> YYou smile. “Sure.”Perrine beams with the brightness of a thousand suns, then immediately takes you up in an incredible bearhug. This girl must have been a loader at one point. She puts you down and bounces in her step. “Yay!”You chuckle, patting Perrine on the shoulder. “Right, anyway, we oughta get going.”Perrine nods. “Alright. Feel free to visit while you’re still on Shore Leave, okay?”“I’ll consider it, Perrine,” you say.She waves you off as you and your crew power away in Cupid the Sherman tank. You make idle chat as the huge crane delivers you from Walter Christie Polytechnical back home to Lafayette Girls Academy.You check the time. 5 O’Clock. Right around time for dinner.

>>29591073Didn't you vote to leave early?
>>29591078So it is rather interestingShe offered to have us race in BT and Hellcat chassis
>>29591050I'd rather they stick to building Unlimited mod tanks from scratch like they do their repros instead of tearing up actual historical artifacts. Especially rare ones.
>>29591073What kind of mods did they add besides the usual hillbilly armour, spare tracks, cages?

>>29591050What I don't understand is why they decided to leave early, we were about an hour left of german's running time, it's not like there was much left to do for today.
>>29591177I've only heard about that when reading about the war in Vietnam.
>>29591212marines did it to help take out jap snipers during WW2 as well
Why did nobody wanted to see the chopshops, wasn't that what we were looking forward to since last weekend?
> Find someplace to eatYou all stop at a nice little restaurant on Lafayette Girls Academy. Fancy, but not too fancy. It’s just a nice little place to have things like chicken, pork, ham, and other freshly cooked meals. Because of Shore Leave, they’re having a weeklong special on French cuisine. You decide to order the Tarte Normande and the Terrinee. Once the food arrives, you find it otherwise absolutely delicious.“This is absolute delicious!” you say.Nancy nods. “Yeah. I never realized this place existed, we should come here again.”Lisa says, “Definitely.” She takes another bite of the Terrinee. “I’m loving this rice pudding stuff.”Kitten nods as well, digging into her portion of Tarte Normande. “And this apple tart is really great!”Ramirez says, “I really like the apple tart too.”> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29591267That's what SOME anons were looking forward since last weekend.
>>29591211I dunno. Spite? People screaming "Muh prototypes" or "Muh tanks"? Sexy time with Kitten in Cherbourg? Grinding out books? All three?
>>29591296>> Converse Casually
>>29591296> Read a Book (Specify)Autang Panzer>>29591297I guess, but what bothers me even more is the fact we left early and German had about an hour, hour and a half left of running time?What were they thinking of doing if we left early.It just bothers me a bit because of that, might not have bothered me as much if we did that during the beginning of the day to do side-quests or something but I felt we were rude to her
>>29591296>Feed Kitten personally>French cuisine is so romantic
>>29591296Read a bookAutang Panzer>>29591323I kind of figured but it kind of pisses me off.I feel we treat frendell and maybe the otakus (if we ever met them) more nicely then we do Perrine, just because of her renovations

The spa was just possibly the most relaxing thing ever!”Lisa says, “Kinda interested we didn’t finish the tour, why didn’t we?”You shrug. “I chickened out I guess. I really didn’t want to see what they had in store for renovations.”“Aw, that’s a shame,” says Nancy. “But I suppose that’s understandable. I mean, Perrine’s very nice, but her choice in tanks is kind of...”Lisa says, “Shit?”You say, “But hey, I think today was fun. We should definitely do it again sometime.

>>29591428We really have no choice but to play nice with Fredendall since she's the Jesus Nut on the helicopter that is saving our school. Perrine just customizes tanks--she's like that 9-year-old that always built the crazy vehicles out of Legos, mixing all the different sets. You know the tanks--the ones with lasers and hover skirts and a jet engine just because.
>>29591512>> Read a Book (Achtung, Panzer!)
>>29591512Smexy time with Kitten, feed her!
>>29591605So that still doesn't explain why when we do have a choice to be nice to her, we still treat her like shit? We're nice to Fredendall because we have to.I feel like we're picking fun of the Yukari of Unlimited tankery because she's 'weird' and hereticaland the latter isn't even valid since trude has only got into tanks for like two months?

> Read a Book (Achtung, Panzer!)You get through on reading the last few parts of Achtung, Panzer! You finally get on through the last few parts of it eventually finish it end to end.> Achtung, Panzer!: Progress: 100%> + 10 CPAs you read, your staff makes some idle talk.“So, Kitten,” asks Nancy. “Those video games you play are really challenging.”Kitten shrugs. “Not really. You just learn how to micro and macro properly, and you keep your APM consistent. Once you do that, you’ll start to play competitively, even against pretty cheesy strats like 6pools or FFE.”…Ramirez says, “What?”Kitten blushes a little. “Uh… nevermind.”You laugh a bit. “Kitten plays a lot of Starcraft 2 on the side. She’s cute when she does it too. Always puffing her cheeks out whenever she gets beaten or whining when her deathball gets rushed by MMM. You main Terran these days, right, Kitten?”Kitten nods. “Yeah. Protoss are lame and I can’t get into playing Zerg.”Nancy says, “This sounds complicated for a video game.”You wheeze a bit, laughing even more. “You need at least 200 APM to remain competitive!” You slap your knee. “AHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Kitten quietly laughs alongside your roaring, while your staff look at you both like you’re fucking nuts.With that, after paying the check and tipping the waitress, you all leave the restaurant and return to your tank.Where now?> Head to your Dorm> Head to your Dorm (Invite someone or everyone)> Head to Kitten’s Dorm (Invite someone or everyone)> Head to a Staff Member’s Dorm (Invite someone or everyone AND specify)> Other

>>29591850> Head to your Dorm and invite the crew
>>29591850> Head to your Dorm (Invite crew)Also, here's a budget spending and tank upgrade/s proposal.>Option #1: Minimal SpendingPANZER IV AUSF. C- Applique Armor- Improved Suspension- Grouser Kit>Total = 1,350By Monday, when the Sponsorship money arrives, we'll still have enough to buy the Tiger II. It still won't make any difference in the first match, however.>Option #2: Average SpendingSTUG III AUSF. E - 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/43 (5,500 Dollars)PANZER IV AUSF. C (1,350 Dollars)- Applique Armor- Improved Suspension- Grouser Kit>Total = 6,850Besides the money from Sponsorships, this requires the crew to try to find some other bit of revenue source (Red Ball Courier, for example) or tap into the Sophomore fund or both.But at least there's a week to recoup the money.>Option #3:Add another L/43 for the Panzer IV + Option #2>Total = 12,350For this one, the Tiger II purchase will have to happen on the first Monday after the William Adams match. (Provided we won it and the sponsorship money is still constantly flowing in.)The wishlisted Tiger II will still be available at this point, though I couldn't say if it'll remain by the following Tuesday.>Option #4:Spend the money on converting the Sentinel to ACIV already because we're pretty much just having 30k worth of purchased guns sitting idle and not being used.Also, all of the above I guess.IMO, I'd go for #2 as priority, and #4 as a longshot vote.

I’LL BE THERE FAST AS LIGHTNING!” With that, Perrine hangs up. Oh boy, this oughta be good.Your crew all take to relaxing in various parts of your dorm. Nancy and Kitten are sat in front of the TV, watching the latest Tankery match-up analyses. Lisa meanwhile has of course taken to using your shower, while Ramirez is simply lying on your bed, reading one of your comics.You sit in between Nancy and Kitten.“Anything good?” you ask.Nancy says, “It’s mostly analysis of the Chi-Ha-Tan versus King Michael match. Nothing really new.”You nod. “Hm.” You get a knock at your door. No way. She couldn’t have arrived that fast. You get up and walk over to the door. You open it up.You’re immediately caught by Perrine in a bear hug. “Hugs!” she shouts.Joy.She puts you back down and reveals her bag of goodies. Candies and the like. “So, what are we going to do?

> Talk with Someone (Perrine Hobart)“So, Perrine.” Perrine had actually brought a bunch of cookies for everyone. Good cookies too. “How’d you get here so fast?”Perrine snaps her fingers, smiling smugly. “Through the use of an efficient transportation system!” You’re a bit quiet at that. “Just kidding, I bribed the Merchant kids. With cookies!”Nancy nods. “These are good cookies, you do a lot of cooking?”“Nah, I just baked these on the side on the off-chance I’d get hungry.” Perrine takes a bite out of her cookie. “But, I think they turned out decently.” She turns to you. “You play a lot of video games?”You point to Kitten and say, “Ask her, not me.”Kitten shrugs. “Oh, a couple of games here and there.”Perrine asks, “Ever play Kerbal Space Program?”What follows then is Perrine pulling out her laptop and demonstrating to everyone how KSP works. Essentially it’s an indie game where you have to build rockets and go to the fucking Mun and beyond. Perrine actually demonstrates how far she’s gotten through the solar system through smart use of well-built rockets and space stations.You meanwhile, are stumped as Perrine walks you through launching your first rocket.“Uh… So full throttle?” You say. Perrine nods, looking over your shoulder. You launch the rocket at full throttle, and it immediately tilts to the side and crashes into the ground.Perrine bursts into laughter at that. “AHAHAHAHAHAAA!” She slaps her knee. “Oh god that’s amazing!”You say, “Oh shut up, I can figure this out! I’ll have it by the morning!”> END DAY
