A trail of bubbles along the surface is the only sign of Yukari's position along the pond's still waters. The breach the surface irregularly as she searches the bottom below. Somewhere under that pond may rest a seventy-year-old French warmachine- the Char B1. You nervously glance down at your watch, checking time- she's been down there nearly ten minutes now.You'd managed to convince Miho to come straight to the pond with you (Giving the auto-club a few more hours to finish the surprise installation of a new 75mm gun on her Pz.IV.) along with the Oorai Public Morals Committee. Everyone else has gone to the gargae for the morning's practice. "I'm not sure that scuba equipment is allowed..." Midoriko Sono says, but her eyes are glued to the water just like yours. "But... I forgot my handbook- I'll have to check it later." You glance sideways and Miho, who's supressing a smile- Sono's desperately trying to rationalize potentially breaking the rules with commanding a thirty-ton armored monster.>"There are rules against Scuba diving?">"So, did you guys learn a lot with Richard?">How are we going to get it out, anyway?>Other.

>>30963875>"So, did you guys learn a lot with Richard?">How are we going to get it out, anyway?>"Midoriko Sono, you're going to command a thirty-ton armored monster. The sheer awesome factor overrides the rules here."

>>30964806*BLAM* HERESY!...actually thread is kinda off to a slow start.
"Y'know, Midoriko..." You say, sticking your hands in your pocket and watching the bubbles circle around the pool. "We're looking for a thirty-ton French death machine." You look down and kick the ground boredly. "Maybe now would be a good time for you to learn a bit of flexibility regarding the letter of the law." Midoriko is silent at that- she can figure out whether breaking what, if it is a rule, is a minor and archaeic one. "So, how did training with Richard go yesterday? Think you guys are ready for it?"Midoriko nods. "Yes, we'll be ready for anything! B-but your driver..." She stomps her foot angrily. "He hasn't even looked at the school handbook!" You hadn't either, actually, but it's probably best if she doesn't know that. "And he spends too much time with Saori! It's not proper- people will think badly of them!"Well, at least you've avoided her ire regarding you and Miho. Hard to notice an illegal campfire next to a forest fire. >"What?

>>30965757Also I haven't proofread any of that yet, and I was writing it on my tablet at like 3am, so there are many errors. I'll fix it when I get to a PC next week.
>>30965861I see a few but nothing too bad.
>>30965757GOod from what I've read so far, think you should use Japanese name order, though, but that's just me.
>>30965861Oh, also, Russells' name isn't James, that's his granddad, his first name hasn't been mentioned yet. Also this is a thing.
>>30966000must be the parents.
>>30966000Wasn't his first name jimmy?
>>30966039>must be the parents.Jimmy is short for James.
>>30966042And I'm fairly certain he's been referred to as such at some point.
>>30965934Japanese name order confuses me >>30966000His name is totally James.
>>30966152Family Name then Given Name. That's really all there is to it. They don't really do middle names nowadays.
>>30966174Yeah, I know that, but then dubs and sub and translations get them all mixed around, and then there's shit like honorifics which are also confusing...
"What? The student handbook tries to ban us from dating?" You snort cynically. "Keeping teenagers from dating- good luck!" Even for an all-girls school, every other conversation you overheard seemed to be about boyfriends. (And even the odd girlfriend.) "Students should concentrate on their studies!" Midoriko says, blushing. "They should avoid distractions!" You look over at Miho- you aren't going to be able to help yourself now."Is that what we are, Midoriko?" You ask, forcing a hurt tone. "Just a distraction?"She looks at you quickly. "N-no! That's not what I meant! You're a student!" She looks down embarassed.You bite your lip to keep from losing it. "Miho- she thinks I'm a distraction... I-I guess we should break it off..." You give her a quick wink. "I'm just distracting you!""No!" Miho says, sounding perfectly distressed. "I'd die without you!" She jumps forward and grabs your arm. "Please, Russells!"You step away, turning your head away from her. "It can't be helped... I'm just a distraction for you!"Midoriko, seemingly unable to tell this is all an act looks horrified. And then Yukari emerges from the water- looks at you and Miho, then at Midoriko then back again. "I am terribly confused.">"Did you find it?">"Midoriko says I'm a distraction.">Other.
>>30966398>"No!" Miho says, sounding perfectly distressed. "I'd die without you!" She jumps forward and grabs your arm. "Please, Russells!"hrng.>"Did you find it?">"Midoriko says I'm a distraction."
>>30966398>>"Midoriko says I'm a distraction."Because we totally are--women love the Pershing.

>>30966917Black Lagoon was pretty good
>>30966917Is it a gif exchange while we wait? I torrented the entire Megas series and started crafting some gifs. Have!
>>30967017you post those, I post these
>>30967017Well that's annoying. The caption is only in the first frame. Apologies, this is my first time with GifCam.
"Midoriko says I'm a distraction." You say, perfectly deadpan. "I had to break up with Miho immediately." You shake your head. "Now Miho's going to throw herself off into the sea in grief. Did you find anything?"Yukari grins. "See for yourself." She pulls out a small camera and tosses it to you."Why do you have an underwater cam-" You think for a second and realise there is absolutely no point in asking that question. You bring up the pictures on the small LCD screen and start scrolling through them. Miho and Midoriko crowd around you immediately.Each picture shows a different part- a 75mm sponson, the 47mm anti-tank gun and the side of the turret. "Flandres." Midoriko whispers. "Is that the tank's name?" She askes Yukari.Yukari nods taking the camera back. "The French named B1s after towns, cities, and regions. That's our B1 down there." She goes through the pictures. "Good news is that it's dark fresh water so it there's almost no corrosion." She goes to the next picture, showing the rear half of the tank sunk almost to the top of its hull. "Bad news is there's a ton of mud and debris- it won't be easy to get it out.">"Do we have anything that will haul it out?">"So, Miho, who do we know that can help with this?">Other.
>>30967183eh, we all make mistakes. In other news, I just found out that Kuromoromine has great waffles.>>30967197>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?">"So, Miho, who do we know that can help with this?"somebody start writing B1 tankspective.
>>30967197>>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?"If negatory;>"So, Miho, who do we know that can help with this?"Beseech the magic girlfriend.
>>30967197>>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?"Don't we have a Recovery Vehicle aboard? We could easily chain up the B1 and pull it out. Barring that, I'd say we use a crane.
>>30967197>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?"
>>30967197>>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?"My guess is yes; we have several running tanks, and any tank worth its chassis will have tow hooks.
>>30967197>>"Do we have anything that will haul it out?">>"So, Miho, who do we know that can help with this?"

>>30968038Sarcasm isn't trolling hossNot a single one of your pictures has been remotely funny, you're needlessly bumping the thread, and I keep switching over to the tab to check the new posts because I am conditioned like some kind of fucking dog.
Everyone watches as Yukari scrolls through the pictures- you're all thinking the same thing, you're just the first one to put it into words. "So how do we get it out, anyway?" Time to cut the wonder of the tank's discovery short."Well, we should be able to pull the turret up as a piece..." Miho says. "It'll be easier to do it as two pieces..." She bites her lip. "Black Jack's our most powerful panzer... It might be able to get it out if there were so much mud and debris...""What if we cleaned out some of the debris?" Midoriko askes. "Could we get it out then?"Yukari shakes her head. "We don't have the equipment for it- an underwater vacuum and pumps... I don't have zero-visibility training, either. With all that debris I'd be working blind." She sighs. "Sorry...""We'll need a specialized recovery vehical..." Miho says grimly.>"Who do we know with a good enough recovery vehical?">"We could ask Glorianna.">"What about Saunders?">Other.
>>30968064You can't stop Nonna's boyfriend from shitposting, unfortunately.
>>30968078>>"What about Saunders?"
>>30968078>>"Who do we know with a good enough recovery vehicle?"Moreover, who do we know who likes us and has a good enough recovery vehicle?

>>30968119DING DONG CIRCULATE
>>30968078>>"We could ask Glorianna."Surely Darjeeling has a Churchill ARV on their carrier, doesn't she?
>>30968078Well if we get the Tiger's drivetrain running it's gotta have some crazy torks from the electric motors but really we're best off phoning a friend here.>"What about Saunders?"
>>30968078CHURCHILL. AVRE.ST. GLORIANA
>>30968078We could ask the offficer, what'sherface, for a RepRecReq from the JSDF, since they actually HAVE Engineering vehicles and their current MBTs outweigh a B1.

>>30968099>>30968137>>30968142>Asking a bunch of teenages>Not asking the JSDF or whatever they're called in this universe, who have modern AVREs and combat divers trained for this shit

>>30968158Sup Dawg, we herd u liek nature so we dumped ur Char in a Lake
>>30968170For what they'd charge we could just buy another tonk.Friends do things as favors.
>>30968183Or because they lost bets.Anzuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
>>30968078>"Who do we know with a good enough recovery vehical?"
>>30968183The JSDF wouldn't charge, they'd just be able to do it or not based on budget. Military units had set budgets for things like exercises, so it really depends on the CO and higher.
>>30968212>JGSDF>Having anything in their BudgetYeah, no hope there.
>>30968212Captain "Useless" Ami spent all the budget on that combat drop at the beginning.Jet fuel and replacing the cars she crushed was expensive.
>>30968212>Wouldn't chargeWouldn't get off their asses to do it at all then.Probably tell us to ring up a tow truck and also get fucked.
>>30968252Except she's Armored, this would be Engineers.Different arm, different budget.

>>30968252She completely ran over a vintage Ferrari F40 when she landed. That thing was fucking smooshed. How much would it be to replace that alone?
But guysCHURCHILLARVNo I'm not doing this just so we can see Brit girls again, what're you talkin' about?
>>30968363That... was not the picture I wanted to upload...
>>30968357More than she made in the last few years, at the least.
>>30968298no need to apologize, it looks great.
>>30968298not too bad. dialog felt natural at least.
>>30968357Looks like a Fiero with a body kit to me, maybe $5k all told.
>>30968405>Fiero with a body kitNeed some Eurobeat
>>30968363>>30968382That's one way to put it. I'm hoping they have a TOG II somewhere... so we can take it for ourselves!
>>30968429You know, the TOG is actually a crummy tank...it's big, slow, and the armor may be thick but it's not sloped at all.Ah, who do we care.
>>30968553got it in one. TOG II, best tank ever made.
>>30968553TOGII Companies are best tank companies.
>>30968553>Armour>Thickit has 3 inches of armour, dude. That's 76mm.
>>30968590IRL, yes, that's terrible. World of tanks isn't IRL, and neither is Girls und Panzer . Just check your logic at the door and enjoy the awesome, epic, silliness.
>>30968363You make a compelling case, good sir.
>>30968626Girls und Panzer isn't WoT either, and the rules state that a tank is knocked out once it is penetrated.
>>30968648I would cuddle all of them.
well you know what they say spooning leads to forking
>>30968701still, 17pdr gun.
>>30968701>rules state that a tank is knocked out once it is penetrated.:3c don't you mean knocked-up? hue.
You subconciously lift your hand up and stroke your chin in thoguht. "Nothing on our team can get it out- do we know anyone with a recovery vehical that'll work?" You wrack your brain. "Maybe Darjeeling?" You volunteer- last time you'd need a favor she'd wanted a contest and a bet- you weren't interested in leaving this up to chance.Yukari shakes her head. "Churchill ARV's main winch is rated for half that weight..." She shrugs. "It'd just barely be able to drag it over even ground..." She snaps her hand. "What about miss Chouno?" She says. "Modern ARV's would do the trick...""They'd do it, but we'd get the bill." Miho says quietly. "I know someone with a tank that'd work..." It's really subtle, but you see her gulp as she thinks. "I think I could get their help, too.">"Great! How soon can we get them?">"Who is it?">Other.
>>30968770>>"Who is it?"It's Maho, isn't it?
>>30968770>"Who is it and how soon can we get them?"Its Maho and Erika isn't it? >>30968779ninja'd>>30968769Who the blonde on the right?
>>30968784That's Rudel, a Luftwaffe Pilot
>>30968770>"Who is it?"
>>30968784Strike Witches version of Rudel.
>>30968791>>30968802thanks, got it.
>>30968791>>30968769>519 tank killsWere the 87-G Stukas really that effective, or were Soviet tanks just thin skinned?
>>30968813It's mostly accurate to say that A) Rudel was just that good, and B) The Reds wer shit at Air Force.
>>30968813Tops of tanks were lightly armoured compared to the other parts.
>>30968838>B) The Reds wer shit at Air Force.They don't seem to think so Tovarisch))))))
>>30968813All tanks are thin skinned on the top. Even the Maus only had 50-60mm of armor on the roof. This is part of the reason it would've ended up being a pretty bad design- with Allied air superiority their weakest armor would've been completely exposed to airstrikes and artillery.
>>30968838>The Reds wer shit at Air Force.Which I'm guessing is also the reason German fighter ace kill counters are so goddamn high.
>>30968856:3c BlackJack, I named my Super Pershing after you, and now it says Black Jack on the sides of the turret.I wuv you :3
>>30968872Part of it, but Hans Marseille got 158 kills fighting the western allies.
>>30968872#Bubi did nothing wrong:^)
>>30968813>>30968838Hans-Ulrich Rudel wa just both that good and that crazy. The ju-87 Stuka was outdated at the time he got most of his kills, but he was just good enough to have twin cannon pods installed on his Stuka wings, outfly anything in it, and shoot up any ground target he came across.
>>30968872Again, not necessarily. One of the reasons German aces had such high kill counts was that the Luftwaffe would fly their aces until they were killed or wounded to the point where they couldn't physically fly a plane- they would occasionally get short breaks but overall they'd fly almost every day, wracking up thousands of sorties and thus hundreds of kills. (Most pilots were given Amphetemines to keep up with it.) Secondly was the fact that Stalin had bad experiences while flying, and thus was terrified of it- this made him distrustful of his Air Force and they received relatively little funding compared with the ground forces. Between this and various purges of his military leadership, the Soviet Air Force was far weaker than it could've been.Compare this to the USAAF, which had a policy of rotating their pilots back after a set number of missions and/or kills. Their most successful pilots would be returned to the states for officer training and to help train the new batches of fighter pilots. This meant that while individual American pilots generally had fewer kills than their German counterparts, on average American pilots were far better trained when they got into combat. (Especially towards the end of the war when German training time was severely cut by their need for pilots as quickly as possible as well as the lack of fuel and ammunition for proper in-air training.)
>>30969008>>30969008Did the German's policy of non-stop combat missions start in WWI, because that would explain why pilots like the Red Baron got such high numbers.
>>30969008Meth was standard issue for the Luftwaffe IIRC.
>>30969008>almost every daymake that two to four times a day, every day, until they got wounded or forcibly retired for propaganda / morale purposes. And even then, many aces (including Bubi and Sprudel) ignored those orders.
>>30969059Man, they really ran their pilots into the ground.
>>30968770>>"Who is it?"Dare wa?
Beej is kill
You don't like how quiet Miho is all the sudden- she's staring at the ground intensely while Yukari and Midoriko go back and forth trying to identify things in the photos. "Miho?" You ask, moving up beside her.She stays quiet and you see her biting her lip. "Miho!" You say, touching her shoulder. She practically jumps."S-sorry, Russells." She says suddenly, looking at you with a forced smile. "What did you need?""Who's your friend with an ARV?" You ask- she doesn't immediately answer so you start making a guess. "Would have to be someone with a lot of heavy tanks-" You hazard- "We already know Glorianna's won't work..." You stop immediately as the answer comes to you. "Miho... You don't have to..." Miho smiles at you. "Don't worry about anything, Russells- I'll take care of it." She looks out over the water. "We need more tanks- we don't get to be choosey about who's help we need."
