You throw your arms up into the air and shout, “YES!”…You ended up quite addicted to Kerbal Space Program. Perrine stuck around for quite a while last night teaching you some of the mechanics, but you spent the rest of the night, by yourself, trying to get to that fucking Mun.You at most got around five or so hours of sleep. That’s pretty much all you need anyway.You yawn as you shut the laptop down and head to your bathroom to freshen up.What should you do today?> Embark on a Subquest (Specify)> Enjoy Shore Leave> Visit another Academyship (William Adams or Walter Christie)> Other
>>29606083>Embark on a Loyalty Quert- O Brother, Where Art Thou?: TEAM NOT-A-CHANCE-IN-HELLo Help the Freshmen become an official band.
>>29606083> Embark on a Subquest (Flying Tigers)You haven't even made it to Duna yet, the Mun was the easy bit Gertrude.
>>29606083> Embark on a Subquest (The Flying Tigers)With so many Skycraft teams about, this is a good a place to start as any.
>>29606083> Embark on a Subquest (The Flying Tigers)
>>29606083>Now that we have Kerbal on Mun, we must blow up Mun so that no one can duplicate our feat
>>29606140>DunaDoes that one have an equivalent to our Solar System?
> Embark on a Subquest (The Flying Tigers)You get your usual morning routine out of the way. You’re feeling slightly out of it thanks to spending most of the night on those landings. You lost so many Kerbals. It was still funny though. You decide to get on with your school uniform since today you’re probably going to be spending most of it on the Academyship.Marina said she might need help starting Lafayette’s new Skycraft team. Might as well give her a call. You pull out your cellphone then dial up Marina.“Hey, Gertrude. What’s up?”“Not much. I was just wondering if you needed any help starting the Skycraft team as all.”“Oh, thank you so much. Say, meet me down at my dorm, alright? Me and the girls were hashing some stuff out yesterday. We’re all still here.”“Right, will be there in a jiffy.”You hang up then decide a nice apple will suffice as your breakfast for today. You open up the door and let the morning sun hit you like a refreshing wind. There’s also a refreshing wind too but you might as well try and sound poetic. You head downstairs then knock on Marina’s door.She answers, dressed out in her school blouse in skirt. “Gertrude! Come in, come in.” You walk inside and see the rest of the Aviation Studies Club lounging around, either in books, or on TV- oshit is that the latest crimson skies- No no. You’re here for business. They all greet you amicably.> Ask how you can help> Socialize a bit> Call Someone (Specify)> Other
>>29606301> Socialize a bitWe haven't chatted with them for a while haven't we?>>29606288Mars.
>>29606301> Ask how you can help
>>29606301> Socialize a bit
>>29606301> OtherLet's go check out that local French Skycraft team.See how they operate, maybe get some tips on how to start a fledgling team?
>>29606320>MarsI sure hope it isn't as cursed in KSP as it is IRL.
>>29606301>> Socialize a bit
>>29606429Eh? I haven't heard of Mars being cursed.
>>29606457More than half of the stuff we sent there failed.
> Socialize a bit“So, you girls do anything exciting yesterday?”Jenny nods, looking up from the TV. You sit down next to her and Katya. Jenny says, “We visited the Musee de la Liberation. Not a lot of aviation stuff but it was pretty cool nonetheless. You?”You say, “Visited a spa. Then took a trip to Walter Christie. Got to see how they operated.”Katya says, “Cool. Cool.”Lidya looks over from her position at Marina’s desk. “What was Walter Christie like?”“Well,” you say, “It was a very interesting experience. We got to see how they restored tanks and replicated them too.”“Don’t they run an Unlimited team?” asks Marina. She sits down on the bed, pensive.“Yeah,” you say. “I hear they’re one of the best in North America.”[1/2]
>>29606612[2/2]Jenny says, “Speaking of North America though, the United States happens to have one of the best leagues for High School Skycraft Teams. All kinds of schools operating the old warbirds and such.”Marina says, “That’s right. That’s why we’d like your help, Gertrude.” Marina stands up and presents to you a giant textbook. “This is from the Archives.” She drops it down in your lap. Man, if you were a guy, you wouldn’t have been one right then and there. “LGA’s Skycraft team’s long been disbanded but according to that book. There are at least five planes sitting around in Storage that we haven’t found yet.”You nod. “Okay.”Jenny says, “Problem is, we’ve checked out all the Storage lots and such. They could be anywhere at this point. Either above or below deck.”Katya nods. “And we definitely don’t want to get lost down below deck again. We’ve also considered using the money you gave us to just buy planes but we’d probably only really end up with second-hand stuff. Hit or miss really.”Marina nods, crossing her arms. “We had a vote on it last night and unfortunately, it came to a tie. How about you be our tiebreaker? Which should we do?”> Find Planes> Buy Planes> Other
>>29606638> Find PlanesI love finding free shit.Hope there's a Spit or Typhoon in there.
>>29606638> Find PlanesLet's see who we can wrangle to help us out too. Like say our Naval Studies Merchant crew.
>>29606638> Find PlanesThe hunt begins.
>>29606638> Find Planes
>>29606638> Find PlanesIf they aren't around the storage areas, then I guess they are in the out of reach places.It'll be hilarious if it turns out one of the planes are sticking out of the hull from a failed kamikaze attack back when it was used in the war or something.
>>29606638>Find PlanesWe're basically bros with the Naval Tech students at this point, so I don't think they'd mind helping us not get lost.
>>29606638>Other: What kind of planes are the 5 supposed to be?No point in us wasting time looking for PT-17 trainers that we can't even use, unless we convert them to that one south american version with a gun...
> Find PlanesYou say, “Well, free stuff is free stuff you know? How about we just find the planes.”Marina nods. “Alright, tie broken. We’ll keep looking for those planes.”Katya and Lidya groan. “Damn it,” says Lidya. “I wanted that F2A on the market. Good price too.”Marina says, “Well, maybe when we get more money, Lidya. For now, let’s figure out what we’re going to do. Storage G got cleared right out when we all found it. And we checked all the other Storage lots as well.”“Did you narrow down any potential places?” you ask.Jenny says, “Well, there are the old club buildings in Marshall Ney Forest. We haven’t checked those places out. Then there’s the abandoned Hangar on the bow section of the ship where they used to store the Dauntless squadrons during the war. My guess is the Skycraft team operated out of there.”Marina says, “Finally, we could go below deck again and see if there’s anything we missed.” She smiles. “Once we find all the planes, we should be dandy. Just have to get registered as a club which you can probably do handily.”You nod. “Of course.”What should you do first?> Find Planes (At Which Location)>> The Abandoned Hangar>> The Old Clubhouses>> Below Deck> Get Registered> Other
>>29606859>> The Abandoned HangarSeems too obvious.
>>29606859> Find Planes (At Which Location)>> The Old Clubhouses
>>29606859> The Abandoned HangarThis is pretty much the most obvious of the places to look.
>>29606859> Find Planes (The Abandoned Hangar)Or at least we'll find some info on where the planes might be.
>>29606859> The Abandoned HangarWe can just through them in order.
>>29606859Could we split up and search multiple locations?
>>29606859>Get RegisteredThis sounds prudent to do first.
>>29607049We can do that easily once we've found all the planes. Without planes, they would be a joke.>>29606950You feel like getting someone lost again?
> Find Planes (The Abandoned Hangar)“The Abandoned Hangar seems pretty obvious,” you say. “Let’s check there first.”“Cool beans,” says Marina. “Alright, girls. Let’s get dressed and ready,” she says. Everyone stops what they’re doing and starts packing up all their stuff for today. Marina thumbs back to the door. “We’ll take Chuck out for this.”You nod. “Cool. Haven’t actually been in Chuck myself I don’t think.”You all step out of the dorm and head onto Chuck the KV-85. The old garish colors of the KV-1S have been replaced with the duller darker Soviet green. On the side of a turret is painted a cartoony stylized roaring Bearcat head.Katya says, “We forgot to thank you for upgrading Chuck.”You smile, waving off Katya. “Oh, it’s fine. Gotta have every advantage we can muster after all.”Marina nods. “Really though. Chuck’s been something for us. We’re glad to have him.” She says, “And we’re especially glad to have you working with us on the Skycraft stuff. It really means a lot.”Lidya nods. “Yeah! Most people would just think we’re nuts, but we’re really happy you’ve decided to help us!”> + 5 MORALE TO TEAM BEARCATYou hop into the Loader’s position., and everyone else takes their respective positions. Marina takes the Commander’s position, Lidya the Gunner, Katya the Radio Op, and Jenny the Driver. Jenny starts up Chuck, then gets the old man moving out into the street.> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29606859>“Once we find all the planes, we should be dandy. Just have to get registered as a club which you can probably do handily.”We should remember to handle their club request personally. It would be just like Fredendall to reject them just to spite us.
>>29607162> Talk Tanks
>>29607162> Talk PlanesSo about Skycraft... does it use simunitions like in Tankery, or do the planes just fire blanks and it's really a game of aerial laser tag?

> Converse CasuallyYou bump your elbow against the much bigger 85mm gun. You hiss a bit at the stinging pain. You look over at Marina, who’s looking like she’s having the time of her life. “So, Marina. How did you guys all get into planes and the like?”Marina says, “Oh, it’s a very long story. My family’s been flying planes since they were invented. My great aunt was one of those girls who did all kinds of acrobatics on top of a Jenny in the 20s.”Jenny looks back and says, “Huh?”“Not you Jenny,” says Marina. Jenny turns back to the road. “Anyway, I’ve also got a line of family who flew Airacobras in the war, another line who flew Skyraiders, and my uncle flies jets in the Navy. I’ve got aviation in my blood.” Marina looks down at Jenny. “Jenny, didn’t your dad fly something?”Jenny nods. “Sure did! He’s a cropduster pilot! Flies a Dromedary.”Lidya says, “My mom’s a Navy RIO, she used to fly a Tomcat before the Hornets got put in.”Katya says, “My dad’s a stunt pilot in North Carolina, flies a restored Bearcat. You’ve all been to his shows right?”Lidya nods, smiling. “His stunts are the best thing since sliced bread!” Lidya looks back at you. “Hey, if we ever have Shore Leave in Carolina, we should go see his shows.”You nod. “Sure, why not.”You receive a call.“Kitten”> Answer> Don’t Answer
>>29607503>AnswerAs if we would ever spurn the Kitten.
>>29607162> Read a Book Atchung panzer!we need to finish this one and work on the waldo book asap.
>>29607538Didn't we finish it last thread and gained 10CP?
>>29607598We're working on getting the perk now.Considering the book in question, it's likely to be a very useful perk.
>>29607538There's no rush, guy.
> AnswerYou put your finger in your free ear as you take the call in the somewhat loud KV-85. “Hey, Kitten. What’s up?”“Did you land on the Mun?”“Yep! Only took me all night to do it!”“I suppose it’ll take another month or so to get to Duna then.”“Don’t start, what’s up with you?”“Not much, just lazing around. Anna’s actually going to drop by later today. She wants to use me to fit us for Tankery winter uniforms.”“Ah! That’s going to be great!”“Not really.”“I can just see you now, naked in the breeze!-“ You look at Marina and Lidya. Katya and Jenny of course probably can’t hear you. You giggle nervously, blushing. “Uh. Friend of mine, Kitten, you remember her?” Marina and Lidya nod. “Okay then.” You return to the cellphone. “Anyway, good stuff, Kitten!”“Sounds like you’re in a tank, did Perrine kidnap you or something?”“Nah, I’m helping Marina and her girls find some planes for the Skycraft team. We’re taking Chuck to the Abandoned Hangar.”“Ah, alright. Good luck then. Call you later?”“Please do. And send pictures.”“Fuck you.”> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29607634we have only two weeks to do it. at the rate we read books and the forgetfulness of the anons, the chance to finish it on time might slip though our fingers. that and getting caught with an over do book might look bad on us in the recall election.
>>29607746> Read a Book the same one again. going for the perk!
>>29607746> Read a Book (Achtung, Panzer!)
>>29607746>> Read a Book (Specify)Achtung, Panzer!
>>29607755We just renew the book. Haven't you ever been to a library before? It doesn't just disappear if you return it either.
>>29607940if schteel says we can, well, i have no problem then. besides, i bet that waldo book will give us the perk to spot hidden tanks and ambushes. THAT is a perk we will absolutely need in the up coming battles.
>>29608113Or we become really good at hiding ourselves.
>>29608198that too is a good perk and worth putting some effort into getting it. in fact... it would make trude into a tactical genio- CREEEEEEEEEEDDDD!!!!!
>>29608113The last time we read a non-tankery book, all we got was the ability to cook.
>>29608324IMO, It was totally worth it.

>>29608983> NGuys, let's just go somewhere else. What if we do find planes? It's not as if we can sneak them out. This has "Bad Idea" written everywhere.

>>29608983>nWe will comeback later
>>29608983>NEven if the planes are in there, we'd have no way of getting them out.I think out best bet is to ask some Naval Studies girls to go in for us. I don't think Fredendall would have the authority or desire to pull rank on the girls who keep the ship running.
>>29608983>NAs much as I want to, let's not break any rules and regulations so close to the re-elections
>>29608983>N-------You gotta give Frendie some credit here. Its like she learn from tarquin or someone

>>29609100>Angelic is categorically incapable of determining which line of text was directed towards himOkay.
>>29609159Shadow Quest rules nigga, do you speak it?
>>29609197I don't read it, so no.
>>29609217It's to stop samefagging son
>>29609197>Shadow QuestThat shit is still on-going?Jesus
>>29609228Well it has to be made more clear, considering that LGA has never used that voting system before.Plus this quest has never really had a samefagging problem.
>>29608983Guys, I have a plan.Why don't we send the History club to investigate the hangar for us? They're new (off Frendall's Radar) and have a plausible motive for being there (research). Plus, they probably know what the planes actually are.
>>29609276Why is our history club so dull?Ourai's was so much betterSolid plan though, but I suspect all of the Senshado members are on their shit-list
>>29609276Considering the level of harassment we've been getting from her, I suspect she keeps up to date on our activities and would know about the history club.
>>29609276actually pretty reasonable.Though i won't discount Frendie already have photograph distributed to her lackeys.
>>29609335Actually, shit, how did she even know about our quest to get the Aviation Club into Skycraft? I don't recall us ever mentioning it to anybody else.
>>29609328Because our history club actuallly does research.
>>29609139I think this more or less confirms that at l;east some of the planes are in there. Fredendall probably wouldn't have gone to all this trouble if the hangar was empty
>>29609343>>29609328>>29609276Guys, we should go with >>29609139 since Naval Studies is not directly linked to us and Fredendall would have no justifiable reason to keep them out.
>>29609375And that's lame.But really, that's my main gripe with this quest, apart from Kitty and our retinue all other characters are pretty..bland.I can't even remember most of their names
>>29609368>, how did she even know about our quest to get the Aviation Club into Skycraft?There is ALWAYS an insider, son. ALWAYS. We will find the snitch and hang her out to dry.
>>29609276It's certainly better than my plan to enlist the aid of the Freshmen and just "music" the Irish Hall Monitor away from her post.The "DON'T EVEN BOTHER CALLING YOUR FRIENDS, GERTRUDE!!" part might put a dent to both plans though.
>>29609431That's one of the inherent problems of having to juggle about 40 characters.Even GuP suffers from this, because when you get right down to it, most of the characters are only identified by their gimmicks rather than any actual personality.
>>29609460Or the Newspaper Club really gets around.
>>29609460Or maybe Aviation club just careless and talking it to other person, and that other person mentioning it on pass within Frendie earshot.
>>29609368>>29609460It was probably the Aviation Club celebrating that they have the money to start a Skycraft Team.
>Old clubhouses> Below deck> Other>>29609501Loose lips sink ships, right?
>>29609519> Old clubhouses
>>29609431That really comes with the territory, though. GuP itself didn't really develop any characters beyond Miho's own crew beyond the most superficial stage.>>29609519> Old clubhouse
>>29609519>Old clubhousesI'd rather we have Wendy or another Naval Studies kid around to act as guide. Don't want a repeat of the last time we went below deck.
>>29609519>Old Clubhouse.And yes. Remember that British or US propaganda poster about careless talking?
>>29609519>Old clubhousesOne scenario I'm thinking of may involve an old Skycraft pilot trying to land on a body of water on the schoolship when the plane malfunctioned.
>>29609519>Old clubhousesthis would be easy as well. BUT... we could also go under the deck and find an underground access to the hangers. well... either find one or make an access to them

What is going on here? Is everyone getting banned?
>>29611874I have no idea why if they are.I know Schteel had some issues with getting caught up in some other guy's ban, but I don't know if that was ever sorted or not.

>>29611844>anything to pass the timeI'd prefer something more related to the quest.Like discussions on why there's no Sponsorship money arriving this morning via mail.Or how when Perrine mentioned a Panther engine headed for the scrapyard did we not try to salvage that.https://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/29583211/#29588711>Not to mention we’re throwing out the engine all together and putting in a new one.

WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT, I'M UNBANNED.> Check around the nearby brush You push and shove your way through the nearby bushes. You feel the bugs buzz around near your ears and the sticks and the twigs brush at your legs. Might have been a good idea to wear pants today. But then you remember you don’t actually own any jeans.Katya points ahead of you. “Hey, what’s that?”You walk ahead and move to where Katya pointed. You find what appears to be a large gash in a tree, looks like something big scraped it. You look around the surrounding area to see more fallen branches.“What do you make of it, Katya?”Katya says, “I think it might be from a planecrash. Probably where a wing struck it.” She points to a bit of debris on the ground which decidedly doesn’t look like twigs or tree branches. “That’s probably some bits from the plane.”You look behind you to see Marina, Lidya, and Jenny rejoining you all. You show them the debris, then head in its general direction past it.“What do you think it is?” Lidya asks.“Well,” you say. “Saw a Hurricane in a picture.”Katya nods. “Mark I. Pretty decent plane.”You all continue walking, then when you hear the sound of babbling water. You must be close to the river. You continue marching on through the dense brush. And then you see it. “Whoa!”Turned nose down in the riverbed is an aging, rotting, Hurricane Mark I. The left wing appears about to fall off, while the right wing has separated and is lying a couple of feet downstream. The propeller blades are mashed inwards towards the canopy. The fuselage and the tail have incredible holes in their construction, while the elevators look completely gone.Marina gasps, grinning in delight. “A Hawker Hurricane! My goodness! It’s beautiful!” She looks at you. “Isn’t it beautiful!?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>29611970good point. IF that engine is still good. a cracked block is a death knell for an engine.

I guess I wanted to look cool in front of themNow I do it because I'm bored, or because it's funny. Like sleeping in a warm bed while it's raining and thinking about all the homeless people outside
> Neutral“Well, it’s certainly wrecked. Won’t deny it being beautiful when it’s restored.” Katya, Lidya, and Jenny are too busy gushing about all the details of it. Thankfully it doesn’t appear like there’s a skeleton inside the cockpit.You and Marina take a walk around in it, stepping on rocks breaking the surface of the river. “Well,” says Marina. “It’ll definitely be some work to restore the poor thing. But if the engine and the guns still work, we can definitely get this flyworthy.”Lidya says, “Yeah, likes the Rolls-Royce Merlin can still work. It’ll definitely take some time and money to get the engine running again though.”Katya says, “Yep! How do you think we’re going to get this out of here?”“Well,” you say. “I suppose you can call up the Naval Studies Merchant kids. They probably have the equipment and time to get this thing moving for you.”Marina nods. “Oh, that’d be great. We don’t talk to Dales a lot do we?”“Now that you mention it, I can’t remember the last time I ever actually talked to those guys.” You scratch your chin, frowning. “Shame really, I didn’t have to ask them, they all volunteered for it.”Marina snaps her finger. “We’ll mark this thing on the map. What should we do next?”Your stomach growls. You can probably guess what.> Get lunch> Continue searching>> The Abandoned Hangar>> Below Deck> “Let’s leave it for today.”> Other

>>29612306good point, it would be rude of us other wise.
> Get lunchThankfully, it appears Katya had prepared for this eventually. So you all hop into Chuck, take a drive out to the Park, and then have lunch there with some nice ham sandwiches. The park is brimming with students and French tourists walking around taking pictures and stuff like that. Academyships on Shore Leave are essentially tourist traps.“You speak French, right Gertrude?” asks Katya.You nod. “Oui, oui, mademoiselle. Je parle francais magnifique.”Lidya raises her eyebrow. “What the hell does that mean?”You say, “It means I’m very good at speaking French.” You take a bite out of your sandwich. “Anyway, it’s a pretty nice day out.”Marina nods. “Yep. France has been having it easy on the weather apparently. Of course, it’s definitely going to get a hell of a lot colder.”“Yeah, not looking forward to that,” you say. “I suppose I’m looking forward to snow though. Maybe school will get closed.”With that, you look over and see Dales and her Naval Studies Merchant girls approaching. They wave. “Hey there, Gertrude! Remember us?”You nod. “I do! What are you doing here?”Dales says, “Marine called us on the way. Said she needed help with moving some old planes.”Marina nods. “Yep. You guys want some lunch?”“Oh, that’d be mighty kind of you!” Dales walks over and takes one of the spare sandwiches, as do the rest of the Merchant kids. “So, Gertrude. How you doing?

> Boast“Well, yesterday I got to have a nice little visit to a spa. Today I’m hunting for planes! It’s all very very exciting! What about you?”Dales shrugs. “Eh, just working on loading and offloading cargo for the Academyship. Nothing too exciting like you.”One of the Merchant kids you identified as Waltraud Sittman says, “Yeah, I suppose we kind of faded right into the background.”Marina says, “Well, we want to go below decks. See if we can’t find a plane or two down there.”Dales blinks. “Oh, you’re looking for the Hawk?”The Aviation Kids are now held by Dales’ relatively blunt statement. Lidya asks, “You have a Hawk?”Dales nods. “Yeah, Naval Studies Science uses a Hawk to help cropdust their plants.”You tilt your head, confused. “… how?”Dales shrugs. “We have no fucking clue. But apparently it works.”Katya says, “So it’s operational? It works?”“Definitely works,” says Dales. “But I suppose a very bright green Hawk isn’t going to be very uh… attractive.”Marina says, “We can always repaint it later.” She looks over at you. “What do you think, Gertrude?

>>29612938We need to ask Tennyson about that
> YYou find yourself sitting on top of Chuck along with the rest of the Naval Studies Merchant kids as Chuck drives through the absolutely gigantic hallways dedicated to cargo transport and storage. Everywhere, Merchant kids are moving things on trucks, forklifts, or even by hand. You see the high ceiling more stuff is being transported by rail.“These halls we use to store big storage and move them around in good time,” says Dales. “Cars are authorized to move down here too, as long as traffic isn’t blocked. We use these hallways sometimes as highways in a sense.”You nod. “Anyone ever get lost?”Dales smiles. “Do you ever hear back from them?”“… touché.”You stop in front of a huge gate, where out pours trucks dedicated to food transport. Chuck the tank moves in through a gap in the traffic and immediately you’re welcomed into the loading area of Hydroponics.Everyone dismounts and you find yourself immersed at the hustle and bustle of Science students moving around, more Merchant kids loading things onto trucks, and trucks departing.

>>29613131Better than breaking in like some have suggested.
> Ask around, see who’s in chargeYou ask some random Naval Studies Science students, “Hey, who’s the head honcho around here?”The Science kid, in a very thick Nebraskan accent, says, “Y’all be looking for Mendel. She’s right round in there.”You nod. “Thanks.”You and your crews walk into Hydroponics. You find all kinds of farms under huge lamps, dedicated to growing food like corn, apples, oranges, corn, grapes, squash, eggplants, corn, maize, and more corn. You remember that Hydroponics really seems to like growing corn for some reason.“Excuse me,” you walk up to a girl, bespectacled and looking rather studious. “Are you Mendel?”She offers her hand. “Gretel Mendel. Shift Leader of Naval Studies Science. I’m in charge of the Hydroponics here. Something y’all need?”Marina says, “We hear you have a plane here.”Mendel blinks. “Really? We do indeed, we use the Hawk for cropdusting.”Dales says, “How?”Mendel says, in her native Nebraskan, “If I were to tell y’all, then it wouldn’t work nomore due to the centipede’s dilemma. Anyway, why, y’all want it?”Lidya nods. “Totally! We’re starting a Skycraft team!”Mendel nods. “Righto. I suppose if you’re willin’ to pay us though.”You ask, “How much?”“5,000 Dollars. Shouldn’t be too much.”> PAY 5,000 DOLLARS?> Y/N> Let the Aviation Studies Club pay> Other

when we get the chance, we should probably call the shop and get them to put the 6pdr on the Sentinel, cause I don't want us to forget and turn up to the match with a ACI with a 2pdr instead of a ACII with a 6pdr when the gun is just sitting there unused
>>29613477To be honest, the squeezebore 2pdr is likely to be more useful against cruisers than the 6pdr because of it's higher fire rate.
> Let the Aviation Studies Club payMarina nods. “We’ll pay it forward.”Mendel smiles. “Excellent! That 5,000 oughta really pay for a new corn farm!” You’re about to ask why Mendel loves corn so much, but then you remember that she’s probably from Nebraska. You’d never hear the end of it. “Come on, I’ll show y’all.” You all walk on down past the corn farms and down to the Hydroponic’s large storage area. Lying by crates is a very garish green Hawk. Mounted on the wings are several rows of dispersal equipment used to spray pesticides.Lidya says, “A P-36A. Not bad I suppose.”You nod. “Cool beans.”Marina runs her hand along the fuselage. “So, it’s all ours then, Mendel?”Mendel nods. “Sure as shooting. I’ll have some guys bring it up above deck for you, then she’s your problem.”Katya pumps her fist. “Awesome! This is so great!”At that, you receive a phonecall.“Kitten”> Answer> Don’t Answer

>>29613584LJA 2pdrs have a very respectable penetration, enough so that against 2pdrs that rate of fire would probably be a bigger factor than the difference of penetration between the 2pdr and 6pdr. You are really underestimating the power of the 2pdr and overestimating how much armor cruisers tend to have.
> Answer“Hey, Kitten, what’s up?” You receive a text message, which has a file attached. You open it, then immediately your sides rocket into orbit. “Dohohohohoh… you look adorable.”“Shut up. You wanted a picture, there’s a picture.”“I gotta say, I think that uniform looks great, mind telling Anna that?”“Sure yeah. Where are you now though?”“Hydroponics. Marina just bought herself a P-36 Hawk.”“Oh god, the Hawk. Didn’t particularly much care for it in War Thunder. It felt so bad.”“Yeah, I have no fucking clue what you’re talking about when it comes to War Thunder, Kitten.”“Yeah, whatever. Anyway, I suppose that’s nice. You continuing to just look for more planes?”“Maybe. We’ll see. Call you later?”“Yeah, sure.”You hang up, and find Marina shaking hands with Mendel. Mendel says, “Lovely doing business with you. And good luck with the Skycraft thing, y’all.”Marina nods, smiling politely. “Thank you very much.”With that, Mendel says, “Feel free to look around if you’d like.

>>29613725> Call Someone (Tennyson)We need someone with his authority if we ever want those planes in the abandoned hangar.
>>29613646We're facing Challengers and Comets at worst.With 17pdrs and 77mm HV, I don't really see what's stopping William Adams from taking potshots at our team from a stand-off range.Which is why I propose (and will keep on proposing) about forgetting about the Tiger II, and focus on closing that firepower gap starting with upgrading the Sentinel to ACIV.
>>29613725> Take a look aroundWhen are we ever going to come back?

>>29613767The Tiiger II will let us effectively neutralize any force that dares take pot shots at stand off range, it will also give us a lot of breathing room while we get our meds up to latewar variants
>>29613904ya and with are build up of CP we should be fine for this first fight as long as we fight smart
>>29613831Because it is more manoeuvrable than any plane it is going to go up against.

Listen, I wanted to ask a favor.”“Sure, go ahead.”“I need access to the Abandoned Hangar.”“Ah, that I can’t do.”“Oh? Why not?”“Because it’s out of my hands to do so. I’m a Faculty advisor, I work with teachers and such. The Abandoned Hangar is going to be dismantled by qualified Naval Studies Engineering students, who will be doing it in a couple of days. Why do you need in?”“Long story short, we’re trying to restart the Skycraft team, and we’re hoping a plane or two might be there.”“Ah, I see. Well, unfortunately, I can’t get you access. But, I suppose you can talk to the Naval Studies Engineering kids. Dory’s actually in charge of dismantling, it’ll start Wednesday. You and her are friendly right?

Marina and friends meanwhile are trying to strike conversation with Mendel.Marina says, “So, Mendel, you know a lot about planes?”Mendel shakes her head. “Nah.”…Lidya says, “You doing anything exciting for Shore Leave?”Mendel shakes her head again. “Nope.”…Katya says, “Anything new with corn?”Mendel beams. “Oh yeah! Corn productivity is through the fucking roof! We’ve got all kinds of corn moving in and out, and with the money you gave us, we can have even more corn coming in through our channels!

>>29614543we are already gonna do that
> Take a look aroundBesides the huge corn production, Hydroponics does genuinely grow other foodstuffs as well. You can see students going in between carefully planted rows of huge trees of apples, where they pick the freshly planted ones. There’s also huge rows of maize and corn (technically both the same thing) where students carefully pick out the ears.You get tossed an apple by a very generous student, and you proceed to bite into it. It’s as fresh as a morning shower.Other parts of Hydroponics includes the stowage areas where they keep fruits and veggies waiting to be offloaded into trucks to be sent either around the school as replenishable food or to wherever it can be sent around the docking city. Part of an Academyship’s income is trade, necessitating the existence of Naval Studies Merchant to facilitate that.“… and that’s how you can use corn to create an incredible explosion. I wouldn’t recommend it though, you might be seen as a terrorist and the NSA is not going to like that,” Mendel says as she bores your Merchants and Aviators to tears. “Now then, there’s also the issue of corn being one of the top products of export for the United States, here at Lafayette it’s own of our top exports as well.”You check the time. 5 O’Clock now.

> Keep looking for planes (Somewhere below deck)You bid farewell to Mendel and proceed on through the storage areas in Chuck. The Naval Studies Merchant kids provide directions on where to go so you don’t get lost like last time.“And right here we have Route 6,” says Dales. “This is mostly stuff for heavier cargo. Occasionally we transport small ships through here.”You nod. Route 6 looks like it goes on forever. Could definitely fit a good size yacht in here. You say, “Think we might find a tank down here?”Dales says, “Well, follow my lead and we might get somewhere.”For the next few hours, you do indeed follow her lead. You actually end up going through dinner thanks to Katya packing more sandwiches. And to further alleviate your hunger, she even gives you some Beeman’s Gum. You chew on some as you continue rolling through the various cargo highways, tastes a bit like honey.Marina yawns. “Any of you guys see any planes?” Everyone says no. “Hm. Alright then.”You’ve ended up even as far down as Storage G, where more Merchant kids are still moving the vintage World War II era equipment out. No tanks or planes though, just parts.You sigh, leaning back on the turret. “Don’t think there’s anything else here.”Dales frowns. “That’s a shame.

>>29615385no when we found it we told the Prez about it and he sold off most of the stuff inside to get cash for the school
> NYou all stop by the Merchant kids loading and off loading stuff. Dales looks down at one of them and says, “Say, any of you guys find anything we can use for Tankery?”The Merchant kids all shrug. “Eh, we found a lot of M2 .50s. You use those?”You shake your head. “Nah, pintle mounted guns are restricted far as I know and I don’t think many tanks use .50s as a coax.”One of them says, “Actually. We found a working M3 Scout Car. A bit old but you can certainly use it.” She thumbs back to the vehicle. It looks like an M3 Halftrack, except a bit shorter and with wheels.Dales whistles admirably. “That’s quite the fixer upper. Looks cool though.”You nod. “Yeah.”The Merchant kids asks you, “So, you want it?”> ACQUIRE M3 SCOUT CAR?> Y/N> Other

>>29615465>Yoh baby! i knew it was worth looking around in here!
>>29615599Well if we're really pressed for vehicles then it'll be useful. I can see it being sort of useful against Walter Christie by virtue of being able to scout quickly. Other than that, yes, it is a subpar vehicle to take along.
>>29615599I said see, i probably don't want to do it considering the problem you just mention unless it's worthwhile.But it can hurt to know it's (limited) full potentiala part of me wonders if it can be upgradded to a greyhound
>>29615641I'm pretty sure it's outright illegal, both because it's not really a tank or based on one and lack of all-enclosing armor. And no, we're not pressed for vehicles AT ALL.
> YYou nod. “Sure.” You hop off of Chuck and walk over to the M3. One of the Merchant kids hands you the keys. You hop inside. It’s actually pretty clean.

>>29615526i helped work with the guys on American Picker show when they went to Bill Triplet's place. they got there a week ahead of Mike and Danielle got there. there was far more people who work in that shop and behind the seanes than they show on TV. And yes, Bill really is like that in real life as they showed him on TV.
>>29615771Where exactly does it say it's vintage?
>>29615719>N>>29615747Great last words anon>>29615751It'll be funny if driving a tank doesn't require any sort of license at all but driving a Scout Car does.>>29615789We found it fresh from storage
>>29615719>YLearning by doing.
>>29615719>Otherdo we know how to DRIVE this? is it in good shape and have gas to get there?if yes, then>Yif no, then>N
>>29615789It's probably vintage since they said it will need a lot of work, so I rather risk it.Also what benefits is there to auxiliary viecles?
>>29615789Did you miss the part about it being dragged from an old WWII storage compartment?
>>29615800Isn't that how professional racing works? The teenagers in karts get to zoom around at full speed but can't get licenses because underage?
>>29615719>> Note: While tanks are an incredible way to get around, it’s pretty expensive too. Auxiliary vehicles can be used for your Tankery team as general transportation, supply running, and other duties. Auxiliary vehicles will be available in shops either on Shore Leave or you can directly order one from the Shop. You can also sell Auxiliary vehicles for a decent price as well.Don't see any immediate benefit besides selling it .But I like it, so I rather not sell it just yet
>>29615819>Also what benefits is there to auxiliary viecles?In GuP verse, we are allowed to survey the combat area 24 hours before the match.(I think the match venue info will arrive at Wednesday, based on what our ITL liaison said.)I imagine this is a good vehicle to use to do that task speedily.
>>29615719>N...So we can use it to carry more stuff for the Cookie selling and or Delivery stuff and in turn get more money?
>>29615945Actually, participants are restricted from the match locale 72 hours before the match.
>>29615981Ooarai get camping on final battle ground though, so if we got early leak we can abuse this loophole.
>>29615981Ah crap, my bad. Sorry about that.I thought one of the OVAs implied that the Ooarai team were able to survey the grounds before their finals match.
>>29616041>>29616072I should point out that the OVA takes place a very decent amount of time before the actual finals match.To give an idea of how long before, IIRC neither Team Mallard, Leopon, or Anteater were there and I believe the 38(t) made an appearance.
> N“Actually, no I’m not sure.” You step out of it and hand the key over to Dales. “Dales, do me a favor and get it to the Sophomore dorm, okay?”Dales nods. “Of course.”“I’ll ride with Marina and her girls then,” you say as you climb up back onto Chuck. “Jenny, let’s go.”You leave the Merchant kids, including your own there in Storage G. Jenny manages to remember the directions well enough to actually get back up above deck. Soon, Chuck the KV-85 is placed back in its spot amongst the tanks of Lafayette Girls Academy. You’re all on foot from there.“Really fun time we had today,” says Marina. “I’m glad you decided to come with us!”Jenny smiles. “Yeah! I mean, we may not have found all the planes, but we’re making progress!”> LOYALTY QUEST UPDATED: The Flying Tigers!> Help the Aviation Studies Club start a Skycraft Team> Planes found (2/5)You say, “Well I agree, it was fun, girls.”Marina smiles, wrapping her arm around you. “Yep! At this rate, soon we’ll be fighting with the likes of Sidney Horstmann or even Glenn Curtiss!”Lidya says, “And it’s all thanks to you!”> + 5 MORALE TO TEAM BEARCATWith that, you arrive safely at the Sophomore dorm.

>>29616192> Head to your dormStill having a hard time imagining the use of the m3 scout car (as much as I like it)maybe we can use it to sell cookies or deliver packages to make moneyThat reminds me, we need to upgrade our tanks and get the tiger
>>29616272We already saw her in her new uniform>>29616192> Head to your dormI want to read
>>29616192>> Head to Kitten’s dorm
>>29616291>we need to upgrade our tanks and get the tigerWe really should get going with that.
>>29616291Right, right. This was brought up earlier in the thread and didn't seem to have come to an agreement. Do we put the 6pdr on the Sentinel or keep the 2pdr on for now?Also, we should schedule extra practice for Wednesday. Come on guys, it'll be good to do.
>>29616192>Consult tank shop.Ask to upgrade the Panzer 4 equipment and buy the tiger 2
>>29616358Well we can ask for a quote on current market price for it and see whether we want to deliver items with it or sell it.
Shouldn't there have been play rehearsals today or is that suspended for shore leave?
> Head to Kitten’s dormYou bust Kitten’s door open. “Kitten! It’s your best good friend! What’s happening!?” Kitten’s there in her blouse and skirt, playing some War Thunder. She nods to you, and then takes a huge swig of non-specific soda. You walk in and throw off your blazer. You jump onto and lie back on Kitten’s bed. “Whooo! Today was a killer! Found ourselves a Hurricane and a Hawk wouldn’t you know it, Kitten?”Kitten says, “I’m personally a fan of Japanese planes. These things in Arcade, they turn like tops.”You shrug. “Well, ain’t that something, Kitten.” You sit up and think.Anything you want to do?> Head to Sleep> Talk with Kitten> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>29616558yeah those Pz. IV upgrades would be nice>>29616553> Consult the Shop (Specify)lets get:PANZER IV AUSF. C- Applique Armor- Improved Suspension- Grouser Kit>Total = 1,350
>>29616553> Consult the Shop (Specify)lets buy the Tiger II and the Panzer 4 parts listed in >>29616558 the;PANZER IV AUSF. C- Applique Armor- Improved Suspension- Grouser Kit
>>29616553> Consult the Shop (King Tiger and Pzr IV)
>>29616558We might actually want to hold off on purchases at present. There's the possibility we'll need special equipment for the coming match. A full set of hedgerow cutters will come to 5,000.>>29616613If that's all we're doing though then whatever.
>>29616553Buy Tiger II and these >>29616613 for the Panzer
>>29616553> Consult the Shop (Specify)PANZER IV AUSF. C- Applique Armor- Improved Suspension- Grouser Kit>Total = 1,350Also, ask Mr. Mishka if installing the KwK 40 L/43 outright on the StuG or Panzer IV is possible without the ITL getting on our case.
>>29616553>>29616613This will do but buy KT and get the Chi-Ha extra armorShould be an extra 500 but it should be fully equipped
>>29616553> Consult the Shop (King Tiger and Pzr IV parts)But no Chi-Ha armor, we really don't need that.
>>29616641>A full set of hedgerow cutters will come to 5,000.for every tank or for 1, because they are only $500 and we don't need them on every tank
>>29616553> Consult the Shop (King Tiger and Pzr IV parts)
>>29616658Why no Chi-ha armor everyone has extra armor except the Chi-ha?and it's inexpensive since it's a light/medium
>>29616691We speculate it'll do next do nothing but weigh it down, since it has crap all for armour as is.
>>29616715If that's the case the same can be applied to the Stuart and it saved it from being totally knocked out.
>>29616691Something about the Chi-Ha's armor being thin enough that adding weight to it via armor would only burden it more.Let's just position it somewhere in cover, without direct line of sight from the enemy, and let it do indirect fire duty.At least wait til we know which is our flag tank.
> Consult the ShopYou call up your good friend, Mr. Mishka. “Hey, Mr. Mishka.”“Gertrude, good to hear from you. I trust you’re doing well?”“Oh, just dandy. I actually picked up an M3 Scout Car today.”“Oh, neat! I love the little Scout Cars. Anyway, I’ve been pretty busy myself lately. I’ve actually been doing a bit of business with Walter Christie.”“Oh, neat. Perrine’s pretty nice, isn’t she?”“She is! Not much of a fan of Unlimited myself though. Anyway, I assume you’re calling to do business?”“Yep!”> WANTED PURCHASES:>> TIGER II (PORSCHE): 45,000 DOLLARS>> PANZER IV PARTS: Applique Armor, Improved Suspension, Grouser Kit: 1,350 DOLLARS> CONFIRM?> Y/N > Other (Anything else to purchase?)
>>29616774>Applique ArmorFor Chi-Ha>y
>>29616774>> PANZER IV PARTS: Applique Armor, Improved Suspension, Grouser Kit: 1,350 DOLLARS> YJust that for now. We don't know if the situation might change since we don't have the map info yet.And it won't matter if we purchase the Tiger II now, or 3 days, or a week later. It still won't contribute anything to our first match.
>>29616834>or a week laterit won't be available then, we get it now, we can focus solely on upgrading our tanks with anything left without having to worry about italso, we could use the M3 scout car to do deliveries and stuff to make us money
>>29616863who will be driving the M3?

You take care of yourself, Gertrude.”You hang up and from there, you yawn. Busy day today. “Kitten,” you say. “Mind if I crash here?”Kitten shakes her head. “Go ahead.” She turns back to you. “Speaking of which though, you got an M3 Scout Car?”You nod, smiling. “Yep?”Kitten asks you, “Is it going to actually be useful?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>296113314chan doesn't love me, neither does my connection and I wasn't in any shape to fix things. Sorry. ;_;
>>29616976> NeutralNo idea.I bet Bolter will have fun with it though.
>>29616976>> PoliteWe'll use it for deliveries.
>>29616976>> Neutralwe can make money with it, either by selling it or using it on jobs
>>29616990It's okay, you tried. Thanks so much for helping me today.
>>29616976> NeutralMore practical then having Lisa drive us around in Cupid.
>>29616976>BoastLess gas than the Sherman, and faster!
>>29616990so moe, even when having connection issuesso moe~...
Schteel, please give us some clarification on Wishlisted tanks.When will the wishlist expire in-game?Is it tomorrow, or Tuesday next in-game week?>>29616976> Boast
>>29616990it's ok, these things happen, at least you're back now.
>>29617024...Augh.Fine, just please refrain from having a heart attack.>>29617002Let us hope this won't be necessary again, but you need anything just let me know.>>29616976>> Neutral
> NeutralYou shrug. “Personally I’d like to keep it around as my personal car. Speaking of which, tomorrow morning we’re going to be washing the shit out of it.”Kitten nods. “Ahaha. Funny joke.”“That wasn’t a joke.”Kitten sighs. “Fine. Whatever.” She turns back to the monitor. “But hey, I should tell you though, the Scout Car isn’t that great offroad, and it might not be a smooth ride like our tank, you know?”You nod, lying back and pulling the covers over yourself. “Oh, relax, what’s the worse that could I happen, I text and drive?”Kitten shrugs. “It could happen. Of course, that implies that people are going to actually let you drive that thing.”“Touche.” You settle yourself in. “Well?”Kitten looks back at you, unamused. “Well what?”“Where’s my goodnight kiss?” You mockingly pout like a child. Kitten rolls her eyes, then rolls her chair over to the bed. She leans over and kisses you gently on the cheek. “Yay! Good night, Kitten!”Kitten turns off the lights, then rolls over to her desk to play more War Thunder. “Good night, Trudy.”> END DAY
>>29617043Thanks man.So that gives us a 7 day window for the Tiger II purchase.On the other hand, the William Adams match has a 4-5 day window for improving our current line-up.Guess it's back to the planning board on how to drum up the money in time for those upgrades/conversions.
>>29617163Pretty chaotic day. Let's hope it doesn't happen tomorrow. As usual, I will be running tomorrow.Follow at: https://twitter.com/AdBa19See you next time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crPl0ITIkS0
>>29617024How is that moe?
>>29617170we already bought it
>>29617194Thanks for everything German,Will you be updating the roster, and shop before you sign off?
>>29617248I'll update those when I wake up in the morning.
>>29617194See you later Schteel, really fun thread despite the hiccup. Thanks for running!>>29617170Are you just going to keep spitting vinegar over this?
>>29617263Are there upgrades for the scout car like we do with tanks.I'm interested in this new aspect of the quest
>>29617194Waiting warmly. Maybe by then I will be caught up again.>>29617208I just roll with it nowadays. Don't ask me because I don't know.
>>29617194Good thread as always, Schteel.Maybe I should actually fly Japan for once.
>>29617210And I immediately have apprehensions about it.I just don't get why majority would want to continue with a purchase that won't have any effect on the first match whatsoever?>>29617270It's an unnecessary purchase in the context that it won't have the immediate pay-off in time for the match, when we have a lot riding in ensuring our first match victory.And frankly, I won't be surprised if our crew and Aces (those who are in the know about the situation of Lafayette) call Trudy out in-game for this.
>>29617163>tomorrow morning we’re going to be washing the shit out of it.Oh god are you telling me someone actually POOPED in there!?
>>29617444Maybe we don't care, maybe we bought it just because it's a viable and iconic tank?
>>29617170We could sell girl scout cookies?
>>29617434Don't. They are infuriating. Their bullets seem to be coated in Napalm. I hate them. Nearly as much as the Russians.
>>29617581Get rid of the middle man and just sell girl scouts.
>>29617642We are the Middle Man.
>>29617631>RussiansI can't stand whenever I get utterly demolished by a La-5 or something. It might just be since I play Arcadebabby mode 90% of the time, but Russia is effectively easy mode.Also, I'm not sure how I feel about this quest being the reason I started playing WT. Kitten was playing it in one of the first threads which motivated me to check it out.
