Ramirez was handling loading of the ammunition, Lisa was counting off expenses and the rules, and Nancy was busy making sure all the guns were sighted properly. You and Kitten helped where you could, and by 5:30 in the morning, the tanks were lined up and ready for the match.Just recently, the five of you freshened up in the showers, washing and scrubbing with the upmost care. Even Kitten was using soap and shampoo for a change.And right now, all of you were busy getting dressed in the locker room.Well, except for yourself. You simply stand there in the nude, looking at the folded up uniform in your hands. Your left hand is twitching a bit. Stop that, hand. You look over at Nancy, Ramirez, and Lisa, who all look back at you concernedly.“Go on ahead of me, girls,” you say. “Me and Kitten will catch up.” Nancy nods, and leads your staff out of the locker room. “Kitten, mind dressing me?”[1/2]
>>29925267[2/2]Kitten finishes dressing herself in the Tankery Uniform and pulling the black thigh-highs up her legs. She nods and takes your uniform out of your hands then places it down on the bench. She starts getting your underwear on.You sigh. “Today’s the day.”“Yep,” says Kitten as she clips your bra together. “Going to say something dramatic?”You shrug, letting Kitten pull your panties up. “Oh, nah. Wouldn’t know where to start, first of all. Secondly, can’t really come up with anything really dramatic sounding.”She pulls the miniskirt up your legs and then zips it tight around your hips. “That so? I would’ve imagined you having something to say for every kind of moment.”“Yeah, this ain’t one of them,” you say. You hold your arms up as Kitten throws the khaki undershirt over you. The uniform also came with a khaki blouse to come with it, and she starts buttoning it up for you. “Kitten, I had the craziest dream last night.”“Did you?”You nod. “Yeah, can’t remember it though. Definitely ended with you dying.”She smirks, slipping your arms into the jacket. “Oh. Is that so? Was it some horrible death?”“No, but it was very frightening,” you say. She stands behind you, and then starts buttoning up your jacket, her arms around you.Kitten asks you, “Can I tell you something, Trudy?”> CAN SHE TELL YOU SOMETHING?> Y/N> Other
>>29925288> YLet's not fuck today up, guys!
>>29925288>YesAnything you want Kitten.
>>29925288>YITS TIME TO GET FUCKED UP
If we make it through today our callsign will be Team Jackdaw, and we're going to call Darjeeling just to tell her.
>>29925288>YWelp, pressure sure isn't on today, nope.
>>29925473Also to sell her cookies, because money/
> YYou nod. “Sure, Kitten.”Kitten walks around then stands in front of you, straightening out your collar. “Remember when we first met?”“When I-““Besides when you stole my lunch money.”You nod. “Well, besides that, of course I remember.” You smile, chuckling a little under your breath. “It was around Spring, 3rd Grade at Beech Tree Elementary. We were on the playground and I was busy beating some punk up for his candy bar.”Kitten smiles. “And you remember what happened when I stood between him and you?”“I started laughing, calling you a total wuss, and then you started crying.”“And then,” Kitten grins, shaking with inner laughter. “I punched you.”“Broke my nose,” you say. “Cried like a little baby that day.”Kitten quietly laughs, adjusting every fold of your jacket. “Yep. Your dad was pretty mad at you, my parents were pretty mad at me. But, you remember that conversation we had outside the Principal’s office while we were talking, right?”You say, “Of course. Started talking shit about how it was bullshit that you got in trouble for defending yourself and another student. I think when Dad and your parents walked out and I said, ‘It’s not fair, daddy! Why does she get suspended too?’ was when they thought it was a good idea for us to have a little playdate.”“Yep,” said Kitten. “We’ve been friends ever since.”“Parents are good like that,” you say. “So what are you getting at, Kitten?”Kitten gently grips your collar, then smiles warmly at you. “I’m just lightening your mood. Don’t want you in bad shape for the match today. You feeling nervous?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>29925597The Chaffee was a light tank and we thought we could ram it, But we forgot that it was an ELITE ight tank. I admit most of us fucked up there, but I hope we won't do something that stupid here.
>>29925500BoastAnd look at us now lafayettes favourite lesbians!
>>29925597I'm more worried about Kitten's deathflags to be honest, but I hope we'll make the good decisions...
> BoastYou kiss Kitten on the cheek, then say, “Not anymore.”Kitten blushes slightly, gently slapping you on the arm. “Oh, you. Always know how to make me blush, don’t you?”You shrug, smiling smugly. “I do it better than guys, that’s for sure.”They both of you giggle, then head out of the lockerroom. You walk on over to the Warehouse where all your tanks are being held. You check the time. 6:00 O’Clock. Your teams will be here in a couple of minutes and-What’s that smell.PANCAKES.You rush on over to the table where Nancy in her Christian goodness has laid out a huge buffet of breakfast goods, including pancakes.

> Check on your tanksAs your crews start arriving, you walk up and down the line of tanks to be used during the tournament. All of your tanks are clean, the suspensions are tuned up, the engines are running properly, and nothing is out of order.You pat the side of your tank, Cupid the M4A1E8 (or M4A1(76)W HVSS, but M4A1E8 is easier to say). You briefly wonder what this tank has been through.Regardless, your other tanks look positively ready for the fight. All your crews have arrived and are busy chattering, making some final adjustments to their tanks, or just eating breakfast. You walk back around the line, but then stop and see Nancy, knelt over, hands clasped together, her eyes closed and her lips silently moving.She’s praying.> JOIN HER?> Y/N> Talk with Someone (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>29925981>YKnowing Nancy, it's probably a prayer to keep all crews safe, instead of asking for a victory.Though that wouldn't hurt too.
>>29925981>> YWon't hurt, not to mention we need all the help we can get

>>29926196What benefits would a cleric of tanks receive anyway.
> YYou quietly kneel beside her and clasp your hands together like she does. She briefly opens her eyes to look at you, then smiles and continues quietly praying. You bow your head and close your eyes.…Now that you think about it, how does actually pray? You can’t remember the last time you’ve been to a Church, except maybe your mom’s funeral. But that was ages ago. You gently sigh, and then think. What do you want most?To win? Nah, too prideful.Victory? Eh…Happiness. That’ll work. You think on it as you kneel down beside your tank, praying.Meanwhile, Lisa has begun roll call. “Alright. Roll call everyone. First off, Freshmen, Team Not-A-Chance-In-Hell.”The Freshmen raise their hands, “Here!” They shout altogether. Tara says, “Hold on, is that really our-““Next up. Team Needlepoint.”The Sewing Club raise their hands. “We’ll do our very best!” shouts Mamie.“Team Wojtek.”The Poles scream, “Let’s do this!”“Thank you for your enthusiasm. Team Bearcat.”Marina pumps her fist as the rest of the Aviation kids raise their hands. “We’re ready!”“Team Minie.”The three of them shout, “Glory to Lafayette!”“Team Last-Chancers.”Lansky looks over at Luciano and asks, “The fuck kind of name is that?” Luciano shrugs, tongue in cheek try not to look like she was the one who suggested it.“Team Liberty.”The Naval Studies Kids shout, “Accounted for and ready!”“Team Clio.”Keegan grins. “Ready to write some history!”“Last but not least, Team Tigris.”The Aces all nod. Kate says, “Ready to give them the business.”Lisa nods, checking them all off on her clipboard. “Good, good.” She looks over at you and Nancy as you walk over, finished from your prayer. “Boss, got anything to say to the troops?”> Pathos> Ethos> Logos> “No time for words, time for action.”> Write-in> Other

We’re representing not just Lafayette Girls Academy, but the United States of America as well. When I first started the Tankery Team way back in August, all we had were a bunch of junkers, some very eager freshmen, and the clothes on our backs. Look at us now.”You look at the Freshmen. “Whether you’ve been with us since the start,” then over to the Aces and Team Clio, “or if you’re joining us now, I won’t discriminate. I’m proud of all of you. Of what we’re going to do today. William Adams has nothing on us! We’re going to go out there and show them what real women can do!”You raise your fist. “Lafayette Girls Academy! Move out!”Everyone jumps, cheering.> + 5 MORALE ACROSS ALL CREWSLisa shouts, “Everyone to your tanks! Time to get to the Staging Area! Let’s go, go, go!”Everyone continues cheering and shouting as they start mounting up their tanks.

I’ll hold you to it. Tell Kitten we said hello okay?”“Right, Dad, see you.”“Good luck.”You hang up and look out of the tank as you get onto the road.

From the research :* William Adams use map control* they like to spread into several groups, usually of around 3 tanks eachStopping us from crossing the bridge while searching for a way to ford the river is something I would expect them to do. And we should assume that there is at least one more tank hiding around.

>>29929004they're most likely fighting a delaying/harassment action and, by showing off their flag tank, bait us into crossing the bridge and getting ambushed.The other possibility is that they're hoping to flank our position using a ford in the river somewhere.

Cathy, I want you to lead the charge, Luciano will come second, us third. Marina, take this time to repair your turret. Everyone else stay behind us.”Nancy fires the smoke round onto the bridge. The smoke starts blowing into the wind and begins shrouding yours and the flag tanks positions.

>>29931853Diversion tactic, also have the Bearclaw cover them

To the North is Challenger "Hong Kong". In the middle of all the wrecks is Cromwell "Wellington"Charging down the main road to the bridge is Comet I "Belfast" the flag tank, and Cromwell VII "Dover" their command tank. Cromwell "Aberdeen is somewhere else but is probably supporting the advance behind Dover and Belfast.

we need to block that Challenger from getting a shot into us or the Aces, so we can hit the flag tank
>>29932166the KV-85 won't be able to hold let alone block the bridge by itself, its 4 lanes wide and its only 1 tank, they get across the bridge we lose
>>29932131There's two different hooks, Nishizumi Hook and Miho's Hook. We learned Nishizumi Hook but not Miho's Hook.
>>29932213It's two lanes wide, and I didn't expect the KV-85 to hold the bridge. It's only there to distract the tanks coming down the road

Guys, we're just going to get ourselves shot immediately charging. Come on. At least use Sidewinder to act as a distraction for longer.
>>29932557We could just deploy some smoke, fall back, and regroup Assuming we still have smoke, if not then just call me a faggot

>>29932525Oh. Right, we picked Rally.Well, that sucks.Dunno why we would take Rally, it's a command-point saver if more than two teams are frenzied, but we weren't low enough on CP to need the discount.
>>29932572not a great plan, because there are more enemy tanks than friendlies here, so if we take one shot, we're out, and then what?
>>29932555We're getting overwhelmed here! it's 6 against 4!
>>29932601The Aces take there's and knock out the flag

>>29932572Yep I'm aware. The trouble I'm seeing is charging might guarantee us 1 round of reloading from two of the tanks or so. We use Sidewinder and we're a pain in the ass to hit, acting as a fire magnet for longer. That was my point.

>>29932694It's fucking 3 vs 5, and we're command tank. Not only that we did the EXACT SAME THING AS THE LAST MATCH! WHAT THE FUCK, WE DO NOT LEARN AT ALL! I call divine intervention
>>29932694Challengers take a while to reload. The Aces have enough time to pull a shot off.
>>29932733Oh and the 17Pdr can put out 10 rounds per minute, so they have 6 seconds to make a move>>29932764The Somua is the Command tank
>>29932694>Boast>>299327643 v 4>> FLAG << 3. SOMUA S35 “Ross” (47mm SA 35)(COMP. SPEC.): Anna Eleanor (currently holding a sewing circle somewhere else, while they wait for us to give them the all-clear)> 5. KV-85 “Chuck” (85mm D-5T)(COMP. SPEC.): Marina Polikarpov> 10.

SPEC.): Anne Murphy
>>29932764we did, consensus changed to using sidewinder and dodging, but GS was probably already writing by then, but we can't tell without him posting what option won and when he starts writing
>>29932694> Boastschteel, don't end the quest here now. i like it too much.
>>29932772We're the Command tank.Souma is the Flag, we relay orders to our teams.
>>29932772We're command tank, Somua is Flag tank.
>>29932772I mean Flag, doesn't matter anyway. Match is going to be decided here and now
>>29932694> BoastWE CAN WIN, JUST BELIEVE
>>29932782we had 11 vs 10 tank match....
>>29932808That was a counting mistake of mine so wherever the miscount was, please ignore it.
>>29932808I copied the tank list directly from Schteel's post, and removed them one-by-one as they got KO'd.If there's an error, it's on Schteel's end.
>>29932819Wait, the stupid anon counted wrong, you had the right number.
>>29932874this is getting confusing fast...
>>29932904Some anon's can't fucking count. it's 3 vs 4
> BoastYou take Nancy’s hand and squeeze it tight. “Nancy, listen to me. We’re not done for. We bought them time. That’s what matters.” You nod, trying to hold back your own tears. “That’s what matters. Just stay with us, alright?”Nancy slowly nods, sniffling. A shot rumbles, causing you to flinch.> KO: KV-85 “CHUCK” (COMP. SPEC.)> KILL CREDITED TO: COMET I “BELFAST” (COMP. SPEC.)You sigh, blinking a little. You look back and see Kitten, who looks just as afraid as you do. Nancy’s squeezing your hand so hard the blood’s stopped flowing.Another shot. Damn it, nothing. You can hear some grinding and metal snapping.You close your eyes.…> KO: COMET I “BELFAST” (COMP. SPEC.)> KILL CREDITED TO: PANZER IV AUSF. F2 (COMP. SPEC.)You blink. You all get off of each other and head for the bottom escape hatch. You open it up to see the Comet I, smoking coming out of the turret ring. The F2 stands by its side, tracks and wheels completely gone, a huge skidmark trailing from left to right.You’re at a loss for words.> WILLIAM ADAMS NAVAL ACADEMY’S FLAG TANK HAS BEEN RENDERED INOPERABLE> LAFAYETTE GIRLS ACADEMY IS VICTORIOUSKitten crawls beside you, in disbelief. “W-We won?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>29932945Holy shit, they did the hook.> BoastWE FUCKING WON
>>29932945>BoastWe gotta show our teams we had faith in them.
>>29932945>> BoastTHAT WAS FUCKING CLOSE!
>>29932945Nishizumi Hook huh?
>>29932945> BoastHoooah baby.
>>29932945>BoastI TOTALLY EXPECTED THIS TO HAPPEN AND WASN'T WORRIED AT ALL!
>>29932945Holy hell, we didn't even use that much CP in the end. Nice job people, we didn't lose!
>>29932945I fucking love you aces!
>>29932945>> BoastHUG THE ACES, HUG THEM ALL
>>29932945>Boast....................HELL MOTHERFUCKING YEAH WE DID.
>>29932945>>29933024Hugh the shit out of them, Even Wendy
Fact is, kids, we sucked and they had to carry us.
>>29932945> Boast so hard Uncle Sam sheds a tear
> BoastYou nod. You all step out of your tank and look around. Girls crawling out of the wrecks of their tanks. Anne turns out, coughing with what looks to be streaks of tears down her cheeks. Mary and Victoria are turned out of their Cromwells, shocked.Kate and Michelle dismount from the Panzer IV, looking around in disbelief. You run over. “We won!” you scream as you hug them both, lifting them into the air.Lafayette Students run over, mobbing you all. You feel Kitten on your back, laughing with joy.Nancy raises her fist. “Lafayette forever!”With that, the ARVs and Tank Transporters are dispatched. You’re back at the viewing areas. You receive many texts, congratulations from the Robert A. Heinlein Students, your sponsors, even your family. Everyone is abuzz with joy.> + 5 MORALE ACROSS ALL CREWSYou sit down, exhaling gently, eating your lunch of a ham sandwich. You shiver a bit. Kitten next to you smiles, also shivering just a little.“Panzer High,” says Victoria as she, Mary, Anne, and Gwynedd walk over. “You get used to it.”You nod. “Yeah.”> “Sorry for beating you.”> “Good Game.”> “What are you guys going to do now?”> Other
>>29933119At this point, I don't care. We can get better, If the aces had to carry us to allow the time for us to get better then I'm fine with that
>>29933143>“Good Game.”>“What are you guys going to do now?”
>>29933143> “Good Game.”
>>29933143>> “Good Game.”>> “What are you guys going to do now?”
>>29933143>Good Game>Sorry for beating you
>>29933143>> “Good Game.”>> “What are you guys going to do now?”Also, >BOLTER! I'M GOING TO BUY YOU A DRINK!
>>29933143> “Good Game.”gg
>>29933246> YAlso, we need to call up Kay for a match.
>>29933271Let's do that a little later, like on monday or something, that was way too close for comfort.
>>29933119We won, at this point that is all that matters.The Aces also had a cause to fight for too, since they knew the stakes. That said, now that we have a taste of a 'real' battle under our belt. We can do some friendlies with other schools. Once the rest of them are more competent, that might be the time to tell them that we are fighting for more than just pride.
>>29933298All the more reason we should get more experience at this.
>>29933326Of course, but Like on monday, after shore leave. Tommorow we should cool down, like go to the french musuem or see Walter Christie chop shop
> “Good Game.”> “What are you guys going to do now?”You stand up and offer your hand. “Good game, Victoria.”Victoria smiles warmly, shaking it vigorously. “Gotta hand it to you. Gave us quite a few surprises in that match.”You nod, then look over at Murphy. Murphy offers her hand, brokenly smiling as well. Poor thing. You shake her hand, smiling. You also offer your hand to Mary.“Aw, c’mere you little bogey.” Mary bearhugs you, lifting you into the air. She puts you down, letting your lungs breathe again. “Right, was a helluva play ye pulled out there you did.”You shrug. “Oh, wasn’t just me. So what are you guys going to do now?”Victoria says, “Return to the Academyship. Practice some more for the next couple of tournaments.”Anne nods. “Yep. I hear next year Sidney Horstmann is going to try and go into classic, we oughta give those little sods a warm welcome, yeah?”Victoria nods. “Aye.” A William Adams student hands Stuart her set of bagpipes. “Anyway,” says Victoria. “Off into the proverbial sunset we go. You have my number, Gertrude. Feel free to call anytime.”You nod. “Of course.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKkHKwEKSggThe four of them walk away to Victoria’s Cromwell VII. “Best of luck to ye,” says Mary. The four of them sit atop the turret, then they drive off for their Academyship, Mary playing “Over the Hills and Far Away” on her pipes.> Return to Lafayette> Talk with your Crew> Talk with a Crew (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

> Talk with a Crew (Team Tigris)“Kate, Wendy, girls.” You walk over to the Aces, lying back and resting in the shade of the Panzer IV Ausf. F2. “You really saved our asses out there.”Kate says, “Hey, we know the stakes. Sometimes we have to do stupid shit.” She stands up, smiling. “But hey, it was a real hell of a thing though.” She looks back at the Panzer IV. “And this thing carried us all the way through it.”You nod. “Well hey, tomorrow your King Tiger arrives. This is just temporary.”Wendy sighs. “Much as I loathe the King Tiger, I suppose it’s an upgrade. I will miss the Panzer IV though. He’s really done a lot for us today.”Michelle nods. “He deserves better.”“Anyway, girls. Really. Thank you.” You hug Kate tightly. “Thank you so much.”Kate hugs you back. “Of course, no need to thank us.”> Return to Lafayette> Talk with your Crew> Talk with a Crew (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

Sorry about that.”“Ah, it’s fine,” says Dales. “We won anyway, didn’t we?”“Well, it was quite a close call. But hey, think of it this way, now you know why you shouldn’t just run off without my go, okay?”Dales chuckles nervously. “Yeah, sorry about that. Got a bit too excited.”“You did admirably though,” you say. “I’m proud of you, keep up the good work.”“Will do!” says Dales.Nancy walks over to you. “President. I think it’s time we head back to Lafayette Girls Academy.”You nod. “Alright, let’s saddle up, girls!”The ITL has kindly loaned you a couple of trucks for you to return home on while your tanks are being repaired, free of cost. You sit, leaning back. Kitten leans on your shoulder, having fallen asleep. That Panzer High must have taken a lot out of her.You smile. But you won today.>> Next thread in about five or so minutes.
