Jaysus, you’ve made an arseways of the Living room you cunts.”Victoria rises up from the couch, her usual straight laced hair looking incredibly dreadful. “Jesus fucking Christ, Anne. Do you and Mary have to do this shit?”Anne nods, pulling the William Adams Tankery Uniform out of a dufflebag. “Of course, don’t be such a wee babby, we got practice. Now stand up, yeah?” Victoria stands up, and Anne immediately rolls the ruffled jersey off of her, reveal-You ask her, “Victoria, why aren’t you wearing any underwear?”“I don’t wear pants when I sleep, yeah?” she says. Whatever, this headache of yours is too headsplitting for you to give a shit. Anne starts dressing Victoria into the uniform.[1/2]
>>29802805[2/2]“Jaysus, Vicky,” Anne smirks. “If boys could see you now with this lot, they’d imagine you shagged all of ‘em.” She takes a sniff. “Oh, Janey Mack! You get into the wine again?”Victoria shrugs a little. “Maybe.”“Jaysus,” Anne pulls the skirt up Victoria’s legs. “You all must have been plastered like statues. I’m quite surprised it didn’t end with hickeys and torn rugs.”You look over at Perrine and Ramirez, who look catatonic. Being the ones who drank the most, you kind of feel sorry for them. Perrine squeals, burying her face in her hands, her pink nightgown ruffled and fettered. Ramirez meanwhile just buries her face into her pillow.Good thing you didn’t drink that much.Perrine whines. “My head…” Ramirez of course doesn’t say anything. You don’t blame her.Anne looks down at you as she buttons Victoria’s khaki blouse from behind. She’s having a bit of trouble thanks to Victoria’s somewhat generous assets. Anne asks you, “So, how was the slumber party last night, have a real craic of things?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29802818>> BoastSeeing as I'm the most sober one here. I say that's something to be proud of
>>29802818>boastI thought we had 51 considering we made up for what we lost with the new command but I could be wrong
So guys, plan for today I think should be improving morale for our match tomorrow, seeing as we probably won't be practicing. Two crews just need a nudge to be bumped up from Confident to Brave.Might be a bad idea I admit, we go too far and most of our crews are HEROIC!! which probably means stupid over excitement and rabid frenzying that we'll have to burn CP to keep under control.Thoughts?
>>29803062I'm thinking we help the Aviation Club apply for the skycraft or finaly start the freshamn loyalty quest
> BoastMustering all the energy you can get, you say, “Oh, we had a lovely time, Anne!” You rub your forehead a bit.Anne cackles a bit. “Ah, all of you look like you’ve made a hames of by the school’s rugby team.” Anne sighs wistfully. “The rugby team…”Victoria snaps her finger. “Shaddup and dress me.” With that, Anne gets Victoria’s jacket on her. However, Victoria realizes something. “Hold on. Why are you dressing me? I haven’t showered or anything like that yet.”Anne blinks. “Oh. Oops.”“Were you always this stupid,” says Victoria, glaring at Anne. “Or all the Irish this short-sighted.”Anne gives her the traditional two fingers then walks over to an armchair and sits down, crossing her legs and arms. “Aye, whatever. Get fresh will you? I’ll be waiting on you.”Victoria nods. She looks down at the three of you. “Gertrude. Go ahead and get yourselves fresh. Breakfast is in the fridge.”> Shower> Breakfast> Get dressed> Talk to someone (Specify)> Call someone (Specify)> Other
>>29803099> Get dressedthen> BreakfastI feel a little nervious taking a shower here
>>29803099seconding >>29803150it feels weird showering without kitten
>>29803099"Made a hames of?"She means fucked, right?SPEAK ENGLISH, YOU CELTIC MADWOMAN!
Not to be anal Schteel, but there are some mistakes in THE SHOP pastebin, under the parts owned header. I don't think it's been updated for a while.Didn't we also have 8K left over from yesterday since we only bought 5 Hedgerow Cutters?
>>29803292Glad people are around to catch my mistakes. I'll fix that.
>>29803186We showered by ourselves too, I think?It's just that I don't trust Perrine at the moment, as much as i like her, Considering we she might have a cell phone camera and Vistoria might be oogling at us.
>>29803224No, seriously, I'd like an answer to this one.Also, shower then breakfast. We're about to spend a lot of time cramped into a tank, and I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel horrible if I don't shower before I go do things.
> Get dressed> BreakfastTo hell with showers. You get your Tankery uniform on, yawning incredibly loudly. Ramirez and Perrine join as best they can for breakfast, which is a simple cereal and milk meal. You’re too tired to try anything complex.Perrine whines, now dressed back in her school uniform. “My head…” she squeaks quietly.Ramirez simply remains quiet as she slowly shovels cereal into her mouth.Man, morning afters are a killer.Victoria walks down the stairs, looking a mighty bit fresher than she did ten minutes ago. Her uniform looks immaculate, and her eyes no longer look tired and forced open. “Alright, ramblers, let’s get rambling.” She looks over to you three in the dining room. “You three got transport right?”You nod. “Yeah.”“Groovy,” says Victoria. “Anne. With me please?”The five of you walk out to see Mary Stuart, Gwynedd Archer, and the entire William Adams Naval Academy Pipes, Drums, and Band. Mary says, “Well, morning tae ye. Have a nice shag wi’ Snap, Crackle, and Pop, Vicky?”Victoria simply gives her a V-Sign as she walks out to their parked Cromwell tank.> Head Home> Talk to someone (Specify)> Call someone (Specify)> Other

> Head Home> Talk to someone (Ramirez + Perrine)“You okay to drive, Perrine?”Perrine nods, looking pale as a ghost. “Oh, I’m just dandy. Tell me, Gertrude, how was I talking last night?”You bluntly say, “Like a true-blooded Cajun.”Perrine blushes, climbing onto her M39 AUV. “Ooohh….” She looks over at you. “Well, Gertrude. I had fun last night at least. Do take care of yourself, and good luck tomorrow, okay?”You nod. “Will do, Perrine.” With that, Perrine drives the M39 onto the road. “Ramirez,” you point to your Scout Car. “Let’s roll.”You say goodbye to the three William Adams commanders, then Ramirez takes the Scout car out of the driveway and into the street for the loading area. You lean back, holding your forehead. Another headache. You’re never going to drink again.Ah, who are you kidding, you’re probably going to fooled into doing it again.With that, your cellphone buzzes.> “Kitten”> Answer> Don’t Answer

Have fun last night?”“My head hurts, Kitten.”“… did you have too much fun?”“We were drinking.”“Oh!”“What were you thinking?”“The same thing.”“Well, anyone. I’m on way back. Shouldn’t be too long.”“Kay, mind meeting us at the Tankery HQ then? Nancy and Lisa are setting up everything for our strategy meeting after lunch.”“Sure, that’s fine. I need a good shower anyway.”“Cool beans. See you there.”You hang up and lean back in your seat as the wind refreshes you. Cool day out today, not a cloud in the sky though.

>>29804066Time for Trudy to have a panic attack and vomit on Ramirez
>>29804066Maybe we should have been studying last night instead of getting tanked.

> Talk with Ramirez> Sleep until you get there“So, Ramirez. Last night was good, right?”Ramirez nods. “Yep.”…Goddamn it, not this shit again, all that progress, lost. “Ramirez, please talk to me. You were so talkative last night.”“Okay, what do you want to talk about?”…“I dunno,” you shrug. You look down at her legs. Muscular, yet curvy. Fat, but not overly so, just the right shape. Legs are always a good topic. You like legs. “Legs. I like your legs.”Ramirez nods. “Thanks.”…You sigh. “Fuck it. Wake me when we get there.” You lean back into your seat and the side door, then shut your eyes. You let yourself dream.“Hannibal! My armies! What have you done!?”You are Gertrudus Terentius Varro, Commander of the Legions of Rome, and Consul of the SPQR.You stand at the field in Cannae. Your legions are destroyed, corpses litter the field. The ground is stained with blood, grease, shit, and piss. Hannibal towers over you. You try not to blush at his incredible muscles or his well chiseled face. His clothing is rip and torn, and his beard is mighty and worn.“All this,” says Hannibal as he grabs you and lays you down in the blood soaked fields. Your segmented armor just disappears, leaving wrapped in mere cloths. “It was for you,” he says.“H-Hannibal Barca!” you cry as he lifts your skirt-YOOOO WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF DREAM IS THISYou snap your eyes open, waking in a cold sweat. You look around, dazed and confused. You’re right outside the Tankery HQ. You flinch as Kitten greets you. “Hey, sleep well?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29804180>BoastNo it was fucking terrible help
>>29804180>NeutralWe are not repeating that dream.In public.
>>29804180>"Hanibal Barca!">"Hanibal Barka!">"Hanibal Baka!"
>>29804180>NeutralGertrude, there's a difference between Cannae and Teutoberg forest, also, please don't give doujin artists any ideas.
>>29804180> BoastThat was an...interesting dream to say the least.
>>29804252>Teutoberg forestOh yeah!
>>29804252Dreams don't have to make sense.
> BoastYou smile, forcibly. “Oh, just dandy Kitten! My dreams are filled with the greatest things. It’s like that one movie from the guy who made the Dark Knight.”Kitten quirks her brow as she rests her head on the side window. “Inception?”“Yeah, that.” Kitten steps back as you open the door and step out. You stumble a bit, then Kitten catches you, wrapping you in her arms. “Whoa, thank you very much.”“Jeez, Trudy,” says Kitten. She helps you inside the HQ. Where the hell is Ramirez? Oh, there she is. She’s already inside in the lounge. Kitten helps you down to a couch, where you relax. Kitten takes a sniff, gagging a bit. “Whoo! You smell horrible!”You motion Kitten closer. She leans in, and you take a sniff of her. “You smell like you didn’t shower either.”Kitten rolls her eyes. “Whatever.” She sits down next to you. You can smell some fresh cooking from the kitchen. Must be Nancy.> Freshen up> Talk with a Crewmember (Specify, Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>29804386> Freshen up>>29804388Of course, that would be lewd.

>>29804386>Freshen upA clean body houses a clean mind!Somehow that made more sense before I wrote it down
>>29804386Freshen up. Take Kitten. Freshen her up too, against her will if need be.
>>29804386> Freshen upWe leave you alone for night kitten and you let yourself go.
>>29804451Yup, but it's still wrong. Them clean people have real dirty minds. They think of things like Handholding and Cuddling.
>>29804506> They think of things like Handholding and Cuddling.Stop bullshitting, this isn't one of those sick doujins
I can't wait until we get to handcuddle with Perrine
>>29804589>with PerrineDo you enjoy being contrarian, anon?
>>29804530Keep such lewd thoughts to yourself anon!This is a christian board!
>>29804695Don't use the "C" word here, damn it!The Fedoras... they hunger...
> Freshen upYou yawn as you and Kitten take a shower in the HQ’s showers.“Why do I have to do this?” asks Kitten.“Because I said so,” you say. You scrub Kitten’s back vigorously with all kinds of soap and water. “So, Kitten. What’d you do last night?”Kitten sighs. “I was over at Lisa’s like you suggested.”“Oooh?” you smirk. “How was it?”“I cleaned every inch of that dorm room. Nancy had to tie her down to the chair to let me do it. There was so much trash you wouldn’t believe,” Kitten says. You chuckle a little at that. “Anyway, Lisa’s dorm is pretty clean now, but she’s probably a bit pissed now.”You nod understandably. “I can get with that,” you say. “Women don’t like having their things touched you know?”Kitten asks you, “So was the slumber party fun?”You nod. “Well besides the hangover, it was pretty chill. We saw a movie, talked about some girly stuff. It was pretty cool.”“Hmph.” Kitten crosses her arms, angrily puffing her cheeks. “Wish I’d gone along.”You hug Kitten from behind. “Now, Kitten. I don’t mean any offense to you. I’m sorry.”Kitten places her hands on your arms, sighing. “It’s fine. You at least got to know Ramirez better, right?”“A bit.”After a nice little conversation like that, you’re now both freshened up.

>>29804712Ask kitten why every body thinks you are a lesbian
>>29805245When we're not starved for money, sure.That reminds me, should we put Applique armor on the Tiger?
>>29805325We've stuck it on everything else, don't know why not.
>>29805325>>29805337Bolt another 100mm plate to the front
>>29805337Well there is the issue of weight...
>>29805457theres also improved suspension and grousers and an Ace crew Eliting it
>>29805457Tiger doesn't really have bad ground pressure with those massively wide tracks.
>>29805457What if we stripped off all the armor and lightened the payload? We could outrun/outmaneuver everything on the field. Agility has to count for something, right?
>>29805489That isn't to historical specifications anon.>>29805474I was thinking more how it would affect its speed to be honest.
>>29805517Power to weight ratio also had a good deal of room to spare. It was actually rather mobile for a heavy.
>>29805337Except for the Chi-ha
>>29805599Forgot about that, but it's paper anyway. Not sure why we did the lights either really.
>>29805517Dump fuel and ammo at the start of the match.
>>29805687the two most vital things on a tank, and you want to dump them...dude, when I served, we dumped food and water if we could for more fuel and ammo
Sorry, had a surprise haircut from family. Update's coming in five minutes.
>>29805736To be fair, I don't think we're going to need 83 rounds for a single match.Fuel might be a different story entirely though.
>>29805754So when do we give Kitten a surprise haircut?
>>29805775At the meeting.
>>29805686>>29805686 really want to up the armor though, the Stuart had light armor too and it seemed to work fine, we might get a discount for future conversions.Of course we don't do that now, but I really want to convert it into something useful later
>>29805788We're going to cut her hair in front of everyone?
Okay drop everything kittens is getting a haircut
>>29805800You're assuming that the Chi-ha will ever resemble something not totally mediocre.Really, I don't know why we ever uparmored the lights.
>>29805754>a surprise haircut from familyI've gotten those from housemates and friends, they were even kind enough to do my eyebrows with a razor, but family?
>>29805808She'll never suspect it.
>>29805808Seems as good a time as any to me.
>>29805837It's happened to me. Mother's visiting, "Anon, your hair looks like shit. Sit down here.""Wha... oookay?"
>>29805837I've had my dad do that to me when I was younger.It happens.
>>29805837A surprise haircut-eyebrowcut from housemates seems way more strange.
>>29805800Enh, we need to get another team before we bother turning the Chi-ha into something useful. Maybe the Chi-Nu or Shinto-Chi-ha. But it'd still be mediocre at best.
>>29805905Not even that, we're going to have the Panzer IV as a reserve when monday comes around.
>>29805905I don't mind it, all things considering. I rather have something Mediocre then a total shit. besides all our other tanks are decent
>>29805905We have the Panzer IV, Hellcat and that Sherman chassis. We're in no hurry to spend money on it.
>>29805953I'd rather spend money on our good tanks than a shit tank we're not going to even use when we're finally finished with that play.
>>29805903it was more of a quick assault with an electric razor down the middle of my head while passed out than an actual haircut
>>29805935>>29805953>>29805962Right, total list of things we have/will be getting in reserve soonish includes. PzIV, T-34, and the Hellcat. Along with the Sherman chassis. Chi-ha conversion is near the bottom of our to do list.
>>29805837How the fuck can you trust your friends to do that, I mean any of mine would have shaved my eyebrows off...
>>29806010that's what they did, I was passed out.
>>29805903Seems like something to follow passing out drunk.>>29805754SchteelAbout auxiliary vees having a use, any chance we could lay hands on a small forward observation plane the Aviation girls could use to fly us over match sites for recon?
>>29805935So is the Chi-ha, well if we do recruit a crew they may decide on either the Panzer 4 or the Chi-ha, so we don't know what they will pick.>>29805962Sherman is still in a chassis so they still have to pick between the two.Also I'm still worried about the Porche Tiger (might be a fake)

>>29806175How is it that you're this fucking retarded? The only relation the Tiger P has with the Porscheturm is that they're both designed BY THE SAME GUY YOU DIPSHIT.
>>29806066> Relax and Goof OffWhat's even the point of having that many tanks? It has to be expensive as hell to maintain and store them. They can't even use their whole roster in a match, can they?
>>29806103You said it wasn't shit, then you say it's shit?I'm confused, also just let them choose. THat's what we have been doing for awhile.

>>29806066Kitten , hair cut, now!
>>29806262That's a typo, I meant the Panzer IV.Also, hell no, I'm not going to let them choose the retard tank over several other far superior tanks like the Panzer IV.

>>29806246Geez, it was a simple mistake, I'm sorry. >>29806317Ah, I see. Well The later version of the Chi-ha became somewhat decent. Not saying I don't disagree the panzer 4 is better. I just want to get a decent configuration sometime in the future
>>29806262Now if we want Chi-ha to be more.. competitive, best choice seems to convert it to Chi-Nu.We might don't have fund now, but even if we have fund in future do we really want a poor man early Sherman instead more late-war mediums?
>>29806151The anime itself is a bog standard Sports anime. It's dressed up with cute girls doing cute things but for the most part its a sports anime.This quest itself has many things so you should see >>29806344.
>>29806405The later version of the Chi-ha has laughable armor, 24mph speed and a HV 47mm. Decent my ass.

>>29806408Well that conversion is very expensive, I don't mind a shinoto chi-ha, just something other then the 120mm
>>29806490> Talk with a Crew (Poles, play with Olgierd)We haven't done this in a long time.
>>29806490>> Begin the Strategy Meeting
>>29806405Why are you so married to the Chi-Ha? The money that would be used to upgrade it could come pretty close to just buying a new tank altogether. A much better investment.Ideally we won't touch it again after we don't need to.>>29806490> Talk with a Crew (Poles)Still my favourite crew, I wish we could talk to them more.
>>29806490> Talk with a Crew (Poles, play with Olgierd)Two elite ISU-152s? Sweet Jesus.

>>29806544We can't really sell the Chi-ha, again some conversions are rather cheap compared to others. Not saying we should get the overly expensive one. Reason why I'm attached, I guess seeing the rifle team struggle with the ridiculous 120mm, made me wish for a conversion of it though I understand that we have more pressing matters.
>>29806490> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)The Poles. And Olgierd.>>29806493....Anything less than Chi-Nu is useless for incoming matches, especially if we stick new crew on them. Its either Chi-Nu or make Chi-Ha 120mm as our Tankery building gate guardian.>>29806642Rifle team will get their T-34 soon.Hopefully.
>>29806577Because she's a stuckup rich kid, her family donates a large portion of the school's funds and Trudy got her suspended for a month.

> Talk with a Crew (Team Wojtek)“TAKE THIS!” Janek serves a grand slam right into Gussie and George’s court. The ball blazes through the air like a bolt of lightning past the net and right into George’s paddle.“I’m sorry, but no,” says George, only having to flex her arm just slightly to hit the ball. The ball immediately bounces back right into Janek and Terry’s end.“CHUJ CI W DUPE!” shouts Terry in the most foreign tongue you can imagine, Polish. She whacks the ball like Babe Ruth calling a homerun and it sails right in between George and Gussie.Janek and Terry pump their fists, cheering their victory. “Woo! Get some!” says Janek.Gussie looks over at George. “How’d you block the first one?”“I blocked something?” says George, surprised.You meanwhile are busy squeeing at the sight of Olgierd. It’s been a while you old dog you. You pet him on the head, and he in turn pants, his tongue out, smiling. You remember dogs like him at the old Animal Shelter. Cutest little things. Janek looks down at you. “Say, we’re real excited for the match with Adams. We’re going to kick those posh british asses right back to England I say!”Terry nods. “Yeah, I think we got it in the bag, don’t you think?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29806776The T-34/85 really isn't a tank. It's one open space that you have to walk around in.
>>29806745What the heck are you talking about?
>>29806806>BoastBlood for the blood god, we'll kill them all
>>29806745The 85mm is leaps and bounds ahead of the 76.2mm for any purposes of ours. My concern is that the T-34/85 is a five man tank, and we only have three riflemen.>>29806806> BoastConfidence, girls.
>>29806782>Boast>>29806782It's still possible, considering that most other schools have hundreds of one type of tank>>29806815...what
>>29806864Reaction images don't help disguise your ignorance.>>29806880It is one open space. Everyone, but the commander and driver has to stand and walk when the turret moves.
>>29806806> BoastThey could totally pull of a Kool-Aid Maneuver in hedge country now.
>>29806916Yes, Soviet tanks are known for being extremely cramped.Now how the fuck does this fit in with your assertion that it isn't a tank?
>>29807063According to most of the world, at least as far as I can tell, the T-34/85 is considered a tank. So we're probably going to keep referring to it as such until that changes.
>>29807155Duh. For most of the world an IFV is a tank. Everything with tracks and a gun is a tank.
> Boast“Of course we do. We’ll stick it right to them. Show them how we Americans do.” Janek nods. “Awesome!” The Poles quickly return to their little hotblooded ping pong match. You meanwhile, sit in front of Olgierd, giggling at how cute the little German Shepherd is. If there’s anything a woman likes, it’s tanks and cute animals.Lisa walks over, clipboard in hand. “Hey, Boss. We should probably start the meeting.”You nod. “Ah, alright.” You give Olgierd one last pat on the head then stand up. “Alright, everyone! Into the Briefing Room!”The Briefing Room is more or less just a big room enough for around 100 people to stand comfortably. At the center is a huge map of the area where you’ll be facing William Adams. It’s only just the map though. Not as detailed as you’d like it to be. Oh well. Everyone stands around, while you and your crew stand at one end. Lisa has her laptop open, google maps and google streetview and the roster for Adams set.Everyone hushes for you to speak.“Alright, everyone! Here’s what’s what. Tomorrow is our match with William Adams Naval Academy. Here’s the situation.”[1/2]
>>29807237[2/2]Lisa starts. “We’re starting on the Northeast corner of the map. Here to be precise. William Adams starts at the Northwest. At the center of the map is the town of Saint-Sauveur. Small town, mostly two story buildings. However, Saint-Sauveur is the only crossing at this little river here. We don’t know for sure if there are any points we could ford across, but we can safely assume there aren’t.”Lisa continues, then switches the map image from the map to images of Cromwells, Challengers, and Crusaders. Wait, this table can do that? “These are what make up the majority of Adam’s roster. Cruiser tanks. They’re swift, nimble, and most if not all of them pack a reasonable punch. All of our tanks are going to be vulnerable.”Lisa switches the table image back to the map. “That’s why we have to control the bridge. If we take that bridge. We’ll be able to control movements on our side of the map, and be able to facilitate a breakthrough. The biggest risk however is that Adams reaches the bridge first, which is most likely.“Therefore, we have a couple of options.”> A. You could deploy in ambush positions around your side of the map. The hedgerows will offer great cover, but you will lose the ability to maneuver effectively if things go wrong.> B. You can make a mad dash for the bridge. A few tanks are bound to get there first, but if Adams gets there first it might get incredibly messy.> C. Write-in
>>29807264Is there any way to ford the river? If not go with A
>>29807264> B. You can make a mad dash for the bridge. A few tanks are bound to get there first, but if Adams gets there first it might get incredibly messy.It was the plan we came up with.
>>29807334>We don’t know for sure if there are any points we could ford across, but we can safely assume there aren’t.”
>>29807264Get a scout into the city fast and push the team towards it, if William Adams get's there first try to contain them, if not we control the bridge.
>>29807264> B. You can make a mad dash for the bridge. A few tanks are bound to get there first, but if Adams gets there first it might get incredibly messy.Better to end the match quickly and decisively rather then let the fight spill out into the fields.
>>29807264I'd go with B. If there really is no other crossing point, letting them get across the bridge will mean you're going to lose them in the fields around the town.There's no guarantee that they'll take the main roads
>>29807264> BEven better since we actually start off near a main road.
>>29807264>BI see that William Adams start a bit into the woods but we start near a road, hopefully that will give us a little boost for the run towards the bridge.
>>29807264Why don't we let Adams cross the bridge, then blow it up? Their agility won't mean shit if we're on one side of the river with them on the other. We can take up a defensive position and pick them off at our leisure.
>>29807264Ambush positions moving in a ring towards the bridge. Hold a tank or two back in case they try to break through
>>298073981 Blowing up a decent sized bridge is usually difficult. 2 Your statement says let them cross but then we'd both be on the same side so the rest doesn't really make sense.
>>29807398>then blow it upConcrete and Steel is a pretty tough combination. The people majoring in Civil Engineering at my Uni literally learn about different kinds of concrete.It would take too much time to bring the bridge down, and the area on outside of the bridge is incredibly large. If they break out and go to ground it's going to be a pain in the ass removing them.
>>29807264You guys are missed something.>Lisa switches the table image back to the map. “That’s why we have to control the bridge. If we take that bridge. We’ll be able to control movements on our side of the map, and be able to facilitate a breakthrough. The biggest risk however is that Adams reaches the bridge first, which is most likely.>The biggest risk however is that Adams reaches the bridge first, which is most likely.>which is most likely.This has a VERY high chance of failure.
>>29807264I think we should always factor the possibility of them fording the river inAlso A
>>29807501Less failure than if we assumed they travel down the main roads and they don't.Crossing the bridge is almost definite, them taking the roads and not cutting through the fields is no
>>29807264> BThey've got free reign on our south flank if they cross first. The fields are more open, and they've got much more room to manuever, something we absolutley cannot let them have. If we can take the bridge and, god willing, cross first, we can take the fight into Saint-Sauver itself. If we can't, we need to bottleneck the bridge and buy time for the rest of our tanks to catch up.
Posting this for exposure and consideration in planning.The place is almost completely flat. No hills, or at least not major ones. There are also numerous little roads and hedges everywhere. The big thing is that there's only one bridge, red circle, across the river. There might be places you can ford across but I don't know where they are.You can see there's a town around the bridge so they'll be fighting at point blank range there. However, there's a problem. On their side of the river, there are two somewhat defensible locations, a castle and an abbey (blue circles). They can hole up there and blast us with their guns while remaining fairly safe.I imagine their plan is to seize the bridge ASAP before we can. But if we can get tanks into place before they can cross then they'll hole up rather than attempt a crossing. Their guns are presently stronger than ours so they can lay a barrage down and either force us back or cover their advance.Considering they go in groups of three it will be hard to predict where they will strike or might do a flanking maneuver. We can try to slow their advance by making craters with indirect fire.Although, the castle still has fairly tall towers. We just need send someone up and give them our binocs.Now, the two roads marked in Orange are extremely obvious firing lines, D15 one more so than D147. Our M5A1 and Pz4, possibly the Panther too, are capable of matching the speed of the cruisers. We can send them to immediately lockdown those roads and slow own our opponent significantly. The rest of the team then uses the advantage to move into the castle and abbey.There are 3 main approaches to the bridge, D147, D15 and D900. D15 and D147 are the most direct, hence emphasis on blockading them ASAP. D900 is covered by the abbey which has easy LOS across it. Not 100% perfect, there's a group of trees in the way, but good enough.
>>29807501We've been considering that since we first got a look at the map.Cruiser tanks are at home in wide spaces with lots of room to manuever, meaning option A will be one hell of a clusterfuck, our best bet would be to go with B.
>>29807618Yeah, we also need to take into account of their habits as well.They prefer open area and map control, if we deny them this their decent at close quarters but with their thin armor, we have more of a chance
> B.“Let’s go with a dash, Lisa. If we can hold that bridge, we can pretty much negate the advantage of their speed and agility and play defensively.”Lisa nods. She switches the map image to one of the bridge. “If you all go into streetview on your phones, you can better examine the area around the bridge. There are two defensible areas in Saint-Sauveur. An abbey to the south, and a castle directly overlooking the bridge. Between the bridge and the castle is a slight depression and a stone wall where, if Adams reaches the bridge first, they will most likely position defenses there.”She switches the image to the castle. “This is the castle. Nothing too special about it, but rules say that the crew, if they bail out, must stay within 100 meters of the tank. This counts for all crewmembers, so in theory, just one crewmember can leave the tank and it’ll still be considered manned. Positioning someone in there to spot will be crucial, as it has a wide view of the town and of the surrounding fields.”Anna raises her hand. “Since we’re the Flag tank. What should you have us do?”> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.> B. Stay with a tank or two. (Assign any guardians?)> C. Roll with us. We need every tank.> D. Write in.
>>29807665> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.
>>29807665>> B. Stay with a tank or two. (Assign any guardians?)the KV-85 and StuG maybe?
>>29807665> D. Write in.Roll with us to the castle and then stay in cover.
>>29807665>> B. Stay with a tank or two. (Assign any guardians?)Churchill and maybe the KV-85their the slowest and can be a shield if anything
>>29807665> C. Roll with us. We need every tank.We don't want them getting hunted down by faster tanks with experienced crews.
>>29807665> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.>>29807709>>29807733We're going to need those tanks at the bridge.And if we take control of the bridge, then that means they can't get to our flag at the back.
>>29807665>> C. Roll with us. We need every tank.lets not isolate our flag tank against a fast team
>>29807665>> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.
>>29807665>B C and DWhile heading to the bridge stick with the heavies, then once you get to the castle or abbey, take cover inside the walls.
>>29807665> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.>>29807789A fast team that will NEED TO GET PAST THE BRIDGE TO GET TO THE FLAG.
>>29807665C then A. Don't get to far away but stay hidden.
>>29807665>> C. Roll with us. We need every tank.What use is their maneuverability if we all stick together in a defensible spot?With A, if they break through, that's essentially game. With B we might not be able to hold the bridge.
The one hole in the plan is that we're expecting they'll cross the bridge. If I were commanding the other team and I saw the only crossing point was that bridge, I wouldn't cross it.
>>29807858Against a noob team with shit tanks? You'd cross.
>>29807665> A. Isolate yourself and remain hidden.>>29807847And if we go with C, we're likely bringing them into a complete slugfest.
>>29807665> B. Stay with a tank or two. (Assign any guardians?)There's a spot just south of D2 (black circle) that offers protection via buildings from three sides. We can park the Souma there, and maybe have a tank on the red part of D2 to as backup.
>>29807858Yes I already know that.I still want the bridge anyway. The important point is that the castle has towers. If they cross somewhere else, we can see them as they move.
>>29807665Isolate and stay hidden.
>>29807665> A>>29807897Assigning tanks as a bodyguard is likely to make things worse, as we will be deprived of desperately needed firepower at the bridge where we really need to hold them.
>>29807858And what would you do, assuming you can't cross the river otherwise? Just allow your enemy to bunker down? When your goal is to destroy them? They need the bridge too.
>>29807940You're trying to destroy them as well
>>29807858Why not just blow the bridge altogether?
>>29807974Shit, need to rephrase that.They're trying to destroy you as well
>>29808002I already suggested it. It got shot down.
>>29807929Fair enough, but I still think the spot is our best bet for hiding and protecting the SOUMA. Street view even shows it's a bit lower than the surrounding terrain outside the perimeter of the buildings, so it should make it more viable to go hull-down.
>>29808002Because it's impossible.
>>29808002Let's wait until they're on the bridge, blow it, and drown them all
>>29808002Because our goal isn't to stop them from crossing, it's to take out their flag. Without the bridge both teams would be at a stalemate waiting for the other to try to ford to get at the flag tanks. It's stupid and unproductive.
>>29808020Still, you don't need to destroy it to render the bridge unusable.Just take out a tank on the bridge. There's plenty of areas along the river with LoS to the bridge that are also shielded from the other side by bushes
>>29808020It's not impossible, just difficult. Technically, we don't have to destroy it, just make it impassable. Then we cut down on the amount of room the opponents have to run around in.
>>29808040This is Tankery son, not war. We're not aiming to murder the opponent.
>>29808069>>29808075You guys realise that we need the bridge, right?
> Some combination of everything.“Here’s what we’ll do. You’ll roll with us to the bridge, but you stay well in the back. Once we’ve got the bridge handled and secured, you find a nice place to sit and wait out the round. That sound good?”Anna nods. “We won’t let you down.”Luciano raises her hand. “So what happens if they do get to the bridge first though. Are we playing a defensive or an aggressive game?”Lisa says, “It’d be stupid to try and fight them in close quarters, they’ve already shown that they’re quite good at that. The consensus is that once we get to the bridge and secure it, we remain there and let them try and come to us. Once we think they’re sufficiently weakened, we’ll go for a breakthrough and hunt down their flag.”Cathy raises her hand. “Do we know exactly what tanks they’re fielding?”“Besides their Ace Challenger, it could be anything,” says Lisa. “That’s pretty much the plan.”[1/2]
>>29808113To ford the river?
>>29808107So do they. There's two ways to play, either to win, or not to lose.If things are going tits up you destroy that bridge

>>29808689>Neutral"Everything's fine, Kitten. Let's study the map a little more. There's got to be something we overlooked."
>>29808689>We're all going to die to these monsters and there's nothing I can do to stop it
>>29808709Why? We're not Russian. If anything, we'd be better off with music from the Revolutionary War, seeing as we're facing dyed-in-the-wool Brits.
>>29808738Supporting this.Lets just check again.
>>29808689>NeutralWe're not sure what's gonna happen and we all know what's gonna happen if we lose.
>>29808728They had a haircut a couple of weeks ago with Ramieriez's boy friend place.We obliged to get our haircuts at their place
>>29808793Just google it.
>>29808779Because revolutionary war marching songs suck?
>>29808805>Kitten let me rub your haaaair
>MFW, WA will be rolling to this song.>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVem-Tbsir8
>>29808831Okay. What is this game and where can I find it.
> Neutral“I’m fine, Kitten.”Kitten says, “You don’t look fine.”You lean back, sighing. “Oh, it’s really nothing you know? Just nerves catching up with me. It’ll pass.”Kitten nods. “Sure it will.”… yeah probably won’t.Nancy rings a triangle. “Dinner’s on if everyone’s-“ All your crews immediately swarm the kitchen, then back out into the lounge before Nancy can say, “-interested!”Kitten brings you a nice plate of chicken noodle soup. Simple meal. You eat it tenderly, savoring every bite. Everyone looks so happy. Well, excepting the Aces, they know what’s at stake. Your staff put on some happy faces as well.You sigh. Best not to let everyone know just yet. It’ll ruin them.> Finish Dinner then Head Home> Talk with your Crew (Topic?)> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29808825Look, I understand you like to use your ushanka as a jizz rag, but the Red Army Choir has very little bearing on our match. Have you actually listened to any songs composed at the time of the Revolution?
>>29808955> Talk with a Crew (Naval Studies Merchants)See how they like their new gun.
>>29808971Yeah. Lots of hornpipe and flute.
>>29808955> Talk with a Crew (Naval Studies Merchants)
>>29808955>> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)Aces, their new gun. and how their dealing with it.
>>29808955>> Talk with a Crew (Aces)Create a backup plan.
>>29808953looks like mech warriors to me. other than that, don't know.
>>29808955Talk with the crew. Coordinate strategy. Boost morale.
>>29808955> Talk with a Crew (Delinquents + History Club)Lowest morale on our team, what's up? It doesn't feel like we involve them in much of anything.
>>29808955>> Talk with a Crew (Naval Studies Merchants)
>>29808955> Talk with a Crew (Delinquents)They're at the bottom in terms of morale alongside the History Club. And their tank will be crucial in matching up to WA's firepower.And if they're still not used to reading maps since the 4v4 flag match, it might be a good idea for them to stick close to another team member.
>>29808994And vocals, and drums. The staples of all marches, everywhere.

> Talk with a Crew (Team Liberty)“Dales, you girls ready feeling ready?”Dales and the rest of the Naval Studies Merchant crew nods. They’re on a couch, along with the Freshmen and the Sewing Club, watching Deadliest Catch. “Sure are,” says Dales.One of them you identified as Wilma Thomas Jr. says, “And thanks to you upgunning our tank, we’re definitely going to be able to pack a bigger punch.” She slams her fist into her palm. “We’re going to kick the crap out of those Brits! Show them what we Merchant kids can do!”You nod. “Can’t wait to see.”Eleanor Donnelly says, “It is a bit more cramped in the turret though.” She snaps her finger. “But hey, not knocking the new armament.”“Yeah,” says Waltraud Sittman. “Ol’ Popeye is going to show those other kids what for.”“Other kids?” you ask.Waltraud says, “We Merchant kids are kind of the butt of the joke for other Naval Studies branches. But in this match, we’ll show them that the only jokes they’re going to make is ones where we beat the crap out of something!”You nod. “Intense.”> Head Home> Talk with your Crew (Topic?)> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29809267Consult the shop. Talk to the merchant crew, see if any of them can hook you up.

>>29809267>> Talk with your Crew (Delinquents)Their Panther is going to be one of our essentials in the match, just wanna make sure they're up to it.

>>29809267>> Talk with a Crew (Tigris)
>>29809389It's the most derivative piece of music on the list. It's a ballad, not a proper war march and it's got no place on the battlefield. I mean, are you going to go into combat listening to Lady Gaga, for instance?
>>29809428What, and The Ballad of Green Mountain isn't a ballad?
Inspirational vid. Let's be like our namesake, and grab hold, and not let go until they try to run away in terror. Then we'll grab them and pull them back in for more. >http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzLADnLsNRs
>>29809564When did I say that? I chose that play list because it's an example of what passes for wartime music of the era, and it's mostly crap.
> Talk with a Crew (Team Tigris)“Kate-“Kate stops you. “Say no more, we know what’s at stake here.”“Alright, just saying,” you say. “I need all of you for this. We’re all in this together you know?”“Of course, Gertrude,” says Joanna. “We’re not stupid.”Michelle says, “We’ll try our best. We can guarantee you that.”Octavia says, “Rest assured, we’ll put our past beside us. We’ll try to at least. We’re fighting for Lafayette Girls Academy.”All four of them look over at the inattentive Wendy. Wendy rolls her eyes. “Yeah, yeah. We’ll do it. Say no more.”Kate says, “Thanks for upgrading the Panzer IV as well.” She smiles slightly. “That’ll help us in the match.”> + 5 MORALE TO TEAM TIGRISYou nod. “Don’t worry. Sorry the King Tiger won’t make it.”Wendy scoffs. “It’d be useless in this kind of fight anyway against Cruiser tanks.”“Now Wendy,” says Joanna angrily. “You cannot keep shitting on the King Tiger like that.”“I can and I will!” says Wendy.> Head Home> Talk with your Crew (Topic?)> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

So I liked when it was suggested we designate the delinquents "The Last Chancers"Any support?
Once this thread hits Page 9, I'll probably make a new thread.In which case I'll alert you all and probably run into midnight here on the East Coast.
>>29809630Bolter's a fan of the KT? Never would've thought of it, thought she preferred faster stuff.Then again, driving a slab of heavily armored death has its own charm.
>>29809778You have my axe.
>>29809778And my knife.
> Talk with a Crew (Delinquents + History Club)“Luciano. Girls. You think you’re all ready for the match?”The Delinquents are settled on a different couch away from the rest of the crews. Luciano simply shrugs. “We’re as ready as you want us to be.”You nod. “Well, you know. I need you all for this. You’ve got one of the best tanks on our roster. It’d be a real shame if you didn’t pull your weight.”Maya Lansky says, “Relax, Pool. We know what’s at stake.” You blink. “We lose this match, all five of us get expelled. That’s not something we particularly want. We like it here on this Academyship.”Phew, close one. You say, “Well, I’m glad you understand the stakes, Lansky. Buchalter, Siegel, Zwillman, you guys understand it?” The three of them nod. “Good.”Keegan walks over to you. “Gotta say, Gertrude. All of us are really excited for the match tomorrow.”You nod, smiling. “I’m glad to hear that. I know you probably don’t have as much experience as we do, hell, I think this is actually your first fight.”“Well,” Keegan shrugs. “George Eliot once wrote, ‘Any coward can fight a battle when he’s sure of winning; but give me the man who has pluck to fight when he’s sure of losing. That’s my war, sir; and there are many victories worse than a defeat.’”You nod. You don’t understand any of that. You need to pay attention in English. “Well, I’m glad you’re optimistic.”“Believe me, Gertrude,” says Keegan. “We won’t let you down.”> Head Home> Talk with your Crew (Topic?)> Talk with a Crew (Specify, Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>29809778Sounds good to me
>>29809627Right, and the Soviets carried the entire orchestra onto the battlefield with them. Gotcha. The music of the revolutionary era was actually carried into battle, and got played on both sides. WW1/2 era music, especially the Soviet music, was made for out of battle recruiting and propoganda. The stuff that actually got sung in combat, by soldiers, like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOi9-_kuvPA was not the pretty, well-produced stuff of the orchestras and concert halls. It was dark, sad, and often adapted from folk songs. "Derivative," I think, was the word you used.
>>29809915Study up on tomorrow's opponents.

>>29809915> Study a Tankery Team (Maginot)> Talk with a Crew (Needlepoint)So you are in a French flag tank. Here's what you are NOT supposed to do.
> Head HomeYou say goodbye to your crews then decide a good nice walk home will do you some good. Kitten however, follows along with you.“Gotta say, Trudy,” says Kitten. “I am feeling a bit nervous myself, you know?”You nod, staring ahead. “Yep. I mean, I suppose I wouldn’t be as nervous if I didn’t know what the stakes were.”“Yeah, our entire school relying on us.” Kitten looks at you, and blinks when she sees how concerned you look. “Sorry, Trudy. I just-““That’s fine, Kitten.” You smile. “We’ll get through it.” You feel your hand shake a bit. Then, Kitten takes it, gently. You look down at her, surprised.She simply smiles back. “We will,” she says.Thus, for the rest of the walk home, you hold hands.

Can you give the Delinquents the callsign in the pastebin, Schteel? Or is it you plan on giving them one quest related or something?>>29810286> Talk with Kitten (Specify Topic?)Are we gay? People keep telling me that we are.
>>29810345Well since you all supported, I'll change it in the pastebin tomorrow morning.
>>29810286Talk to Kitten: "Any thoughts on the match tomorrow?"
>>29810286> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)Lets check in on Maginot, or some kind of actually French team, and get some ideas for the SOUMA.
>>29810286>> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)Anzio
>>29810286Might as well just chat with Kitten, something to get us relaxed and not as jumpy. Maybe ask her to tell the saga of cleaning that filthy room? That, or ask her about her latest video game obsession.
>>29810286>Talk with KittenKitten a bunch of girls were sad I'm not gay and one was planning on asking me out

Why are we holding hands with Kitten when we aren't even married yet
>>29810501Girls can't get married most places anon.
>>29810501Holding hands before marriage is perfectly accepted in today's society anon, stop living in the past.
>>29810501>holding handsyou've never held your best friends hand before anon?that sounded gay
> Talk with Kitten> Study a Tankery Team (Maginot Girls College)“Kitten, want to know something funny?”Kitten looks at you, curious. “What’s up?”“People keep thinking I’m gay.”…The two of you giggle a bit, still holding each other’s hands. You say, “One was so disappointed that I wasn’t. It was very close to her just asking me out you know?”Kitten bursts into laughter at that. “Oh, that’s funny! That really is!”Well, you’re feeling a bit better at least.

>>29810685> YWhy not?

>>29810685> YLock all the doors and draw every curtain. You never know where Perrine is.
>>29810685>YOf course I'll sleep with you
>>29810685>Yoh boy do we
>>29810736>You never know where Perrine is.Under the blankets hoping for fugs
>>29810685I'm surprised they don't have any model 35 tanks, or Ft-17s. even Soumas?as much as I kind of want to say no....>YWe have to be nice to our best friend
>>29810779She'll just have picked the wrong bed and will end up alone anyway.
>>29810860We should hook Perrine up with Fredendall
>>29810799Well, if we ever really want to, at least we know who would buy our Souma. Probably for a good price too.
>>29810877Not sure, the Sewing club will appreciate it.
>>29810873Jesus, I wouldn't want to do that to Perrine.
> YYou yawn as you strip down to just a blouse and your panties tonight. You need to get some nice sleepwear. Maybe it’ll be worth it to head to a clothing store on Sunday or something.Kitten meanwhile has done the same. She smoothes out the bed out a bit and sits down on it. You sit down next to her, sighing.“Trudy?” You look at her, confused. She points to your hand. It’s still shaking a bit. Stop that, hand. This isn’t Saving Private Ryan. Stop that now. Kitten stops it for you, by taking it in her hands.“Sorry,” you say. “Nerves.”“Understandable.” You both slip under the covers and then lie back, still holding hands. “Just try to get some sleep, Trudy. We’ve got a big day ahead of us.”Big day ahead of you. That phrase hits your gut like a freightliner. You swallow, then say, “Alright, Kitten.”…Kitten turns to you, pouting a little. “Still nervous.”“Very.”Kitten scoots closer to you, closing the gap. “Don’t be, I’m here for you. You’re here for me. That’s all that matters.” She rests her head on your shoulder.What did your dad teach you when dealing with emotional stress? It was mostly to sing.So, might as well. You sing.You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,You make me happy, when skies are grey,You’ll never know dear, how much I love you,Please don’t take my sunshine away.> END DAY> We are now on Page 9. I'm going to start our new thread in 8 minutes or so. Stay tuned. I will be archiving this thread.
>>29810873Anon no amount of tank murder deserves that kind of suffering.
>>29810919I wouldn't do that to anyone, I think it qualifies as a warcrime.
>>29810963We should have slept naked
>>29810963Oh fuck, Are we actually getting to the battle today? Waht's in the new thread?
>>29810963Oh, shit, we're starting the match today?Awesome!
>>29811028Obviously a sex-dreams-of-kitten omake
>>29810973Who'd be suffering? Fred or Perrine?
>>29811028>>29811045No, you're not starting the match today.I just feel like we're ending too soon at two hours.
>>29811050Both? Probably Perrine more though, Fred is a dyed in the wool uber bitch. Perrine is just like a misguided puppy.
>>29811050Perrine. Fred is a massive pile of shit, and I wouldn't wish for a decent, if heretical, girl like Perrine to be saddled with that petty hellbeast.
But maybe Perrine would be able to pull the stick out of Fredendall's ass through copious amounts of sex
>>29811109>>29811126She's a whipping bitch, but she's OUR whipping bitch?
>>29811147All the kings tanks and all the kings men couldn't get the stick out of Fredendalls ass anon. >>29811148I don't actually dislike Perrine anymore, she's just got a weird hobby.
>>29811147Nah, I think you would need vicegrips and a a tractor for that.
>>29811191What's the hobby? This is my first thread.>>29811192Takes a crane to get it out?
>>29811192That sounds like a job for Perrine, really. Not like it would be hard for her to mount vicegrips on a tractor.

>>29811206Perrine is the Tankery Commander of Walter Christie, a school that is a Unlimited Tankery champ. Unlimited Tankery is where you kitbash tanks and soup them up in wild ways to get every advantage you can. The thing that terrifies people is Perrine takes super rare tanks from history (prototypes usually, of which one or two exist at all in the world) and rebuilds them into monstrosities the way a child would take apart an action figure and put different parts on it.She's super-duper-can't-fucking-believe-how-nice though, so Trudy doesn't hate her.
>>29811326New thread's up.
We should have a handholding threesome with Perrine and Kitten.
