You look over onto the floor to see your Ramirez and Lisa sound asleep, and Nancy busy cooking up breakfast.You try to rise, only to be tugged on by Kitten. “Kitten, let me go.”“No,” says Kitten, her eyes still closed as if still asleep.“Whatever,” you say as you rise anyway, taking Kitten with you as she rides on your back, dragging her feet on the floor. Someone knocks at the door, and your in exhausted state you decide to go answer it.You open it up to see, Fairless and Betty, and their respective student councils.“Hey, Gertrude,” says Fairless. “Morning, Carol.”Kitten groans, burying her face into your back, trying to get away from the light.“We’re in Lisbon!” says Betty. “And Black Forest Peak is due to arrive in just a few hours. You want to help us introduce them and show them around?”> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)> “Not now, but after school maybe.”> Other
>>31161012> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)
>>31161012>> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)It was our idea so let's do it
It was actually raining for a few minutes here in Ottawa.>>31161012> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)
>>31161012> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)Evening Schteel.
>>31161012>“Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)Is Maho a siscon in this quest?
>>31161012>> “Sure.” (EXPEND VACATION DAY)GOOD THING WE SAVE THESE V DAYS RIGHT?!
>>31161012>>and their respective student councils.does this mean we need to have our council expend V days too?
> “Sure.”> - 1 VACATION DAYYou nod, rubbing the sleep out of your eyes. “Sure. What time is it?” Betty shows you her watch. “4:30?”Fairless nods. “They’re very punctual I hear. Go ahead and get ready, we’ll meet you at school.”“Alright,” you say. You gently shut the door on them then walk over to shower, Kitten in tow. Time to get ready. You and Kitten quickly shower together, making sure your hair is in order and making sure your skin is smooth as a baby.However, you’re stumped a little. On the one hand, school uniform, on the other hand, Tankery uniform. Hell, this is a day to be casual even too.What should you wear? Heck, should you add a hairstyle change to it maybe? Even some make up? Perhaps a nice hat if you had one?Lisa says, “Stop worrying and get dressed,” as she walks into the shower.> Tankery Uniform> School Uniform> Casualware> Other> Write in additions

>>31161012German did you update the CP count?We studied tankery teams like 2 or 3 times
>>31161267Pretty sure I did.I think.Damn it, I don't know now. Fuck it, I'll just add 10 CP to the count.

>>31161256>CasualwareShort green skirt, white shirt, maybe some type of bow on the shirt.
>>31161256>> Tankery UniformWe're meeting BFP so it fits?Or should we go as Trude as Sophomore President?
>>31161256>> Tankery Uniform
>>31161256> School UniformThis is the School wide event, we should focus on the elections, Ponytail
>>31161256Why is Nancy cooking breakfast at 4:30 in the morning for?
>>31161343Because she's lost control of her life.
>>31161256School uniform. We're still in an election. We need to act more like Eisenhower and less like Patton.
>>31161335Twintails seems a little unprofessional.A bun or ponytail seems appropiate.
>>31161343Because she is one godawful goody-good girl. Little miss perfect, irritates me more than Fredendall.
>>31161256> School UniformStrange thing about Black Forest's school uniform and tankery uniform is that they pretty much look interchangeable, at least when compared to Saunders school/tankery uniform, for example.
>>31161404But we're representing the school.
>>31161256> Tankery Uniform
>>31161443And your line of reasoning represents boredom
Can't Trudy just have normal hair? This isn't a formal reception, Maho's our friend.
>>31161458What is your line of reasoning for twintail then?
> Tankery UniformYou decide on wearing the Tankery Uniform today, and with that, so does your crew.When you walk out of the dorm, Lisa asks you, “What’s with the twin tails?”You shrug. “Felt like it.” You brush one of the tails behind you, the other resting on your shoulder. “Think they’ll like it?”Lisa says, “They might think you’re a child.”“Oh really?” you say, smirking. “YOU are calling me a child.”“Don’t start,” says Lisa. “Let’s go.”Nancy has cooked you breakfast on the go, sandwich toast with sausage and eggs. Crispy meaty goodness. You meet up with the Councils downstairs and head onto your destination.> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>31161490We have normal hair all the time, a little variety won't kill anyone.
>>31161458We do want to appear serious in front of a school whose doctrine consists of not having fun.
>>31161502> Converse CasuallySmall talk.
Does Trudy even have enough hair for a twintail? I always thought she had shoulder-length hair.
>>31161502> Study a Tankery Team (damned if i can think of one we haven't mined out yet)> Converse Casually
>>31161502> Converse Casually (Topic?)Talk to the Junior Council, we hardly ever see them.

>>31161557>>Erika is going to laugh at us.No, with us!
>>31161547Nikolai Tesla and Maginot Line Academy
Fun fact: in GuP, none of the girls has twintails. Not a single one.
>>31161600Did you even watch the show? There's also one of the freshman donning twintails.
>>31161502> Converse CasuallyMaho mentioned bringing guests not affiliated with Black Forest.Anyone from the other councils know who it could be?Of course (metawise) it'd probably be Miho, but Gertrude isn't familiar enough with that to simply assume correctly right off.>>31161600>Anzu>Anchovy, with bonus drills
>>31161600What about Anzio?
>>31161659I kind of want to see Yukari freak out over the Brumbar. M8A1 Scott GMC, 120mm Type-97 Chi-Ha and the Churchill Mark IX LT.One was a limited production model, the other is a rare tank, and two extremely rare tanks.
> Converse Casually“So, Betty, we haven’t talked much, you doing okay?”Betty smiles, nodding. “Sure! I actually got a modeling contract, soon as I finish school, I’ll be working with a small magazine firm.”“That’s cool,” says Nancy. “I wouldn’t be able to do modeling myself, it’s so… I don’t know how to describe it.”Betty says, “Oh, modeling just takes confidence in yourself and your body!”Carnegie and Frick chuckle a little. “Sounds like Betty hasn’t lost her way,” says Carnegie.“So, is Black Forest Peak bringing any guests?” asks Fairless.You nod. “Sure. I assume they might bring a select few members of their team, and apparently Maho’s bringing some family over.”“Cool,” says Betty. “We’ll look forward to it!”Nancy pulls out a box and hands it to you. “Oh, take that, Gertrude. It’s Maho’s welcoming gift, the Sewing Club’s scarf.”“Ah, almost forgot,” you say.You arrive at the loading dock. Black Forest Peak has arrived in all its huge glory, towering right over LGA. Lisa states that it’s one of the bigger Japanese Academyships in service. Not as big as Robert Heinlein but it seems to come damn close.You sigh. Now you play the waiting game.> Wait for them to arrive> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>31161745>> Wait for them to arrive>> Converse CasuallySomething with Fairless.
>>31161745> Study a Tankery Team (St. Glorianna)We could make comparisons with their Churchill Mk. VII and our Churchill Mk. IX LT, see how their performance with their tank would help us with the Freshmen's tank.Even if Glorianna wins their match, I doubt they'd progress to the next bracket since it's probably Kursk who they'll face next.
>>31161745> Converse Casually (Fairless)"So, Fairless, how are you doing?"
>>31161745>Converse Casually (Topic?)See if we can get volunteers for the sewing club's fashion show.
> Converse CasuallyEveryone sort of defaults to idly chattering amongst themselves and updating their statuses on Facebook. You say, “So, Bernadette. How are you doing?”Fairless shrugs. “Eh, alright. Things could be better I suppose.”“Oh?” you say. “How so?”“Well for one, I could have less work, I could have friends, I could quit smoking. But here we are.”“Ah.” You scratch your chin a little, pensive. “Yeah, I suppose things could be better. Speaking of which though, where’s Fredendall?”Fairless says, “Apparently she doesn’t have time to welcome the prestigious Japanese Academyship students to our school so she’s taking a couple of vacation days at home doing nothing but getting fat over ice cream and hot pockets.”“Of course,” you say.With that, you see the loading elevator rise, and come up with a huge assortment of German vehicles. The lead one rolls up to you first, a huge passenger car, like something out of an Indiana Jones movie or Hogan’s Heroes. The occupants inside include Erika, Maho, an assortment of BFP students, and a few in unfamiliar uniforms.They pull up in front of you, and get out. Maho, Erika, and Akaboshi walk up to you. “Gertrude Pool!” says Akaboshi, smiling. “Hello!”> Boast – “Welcome aboard LGA!”> Neutral – “Welcome.”> Polite – “Nice to see you all.”> Write in

>>31162004> Boast – “Welcome aboard LGA!”
>>31162063At least nancy has the excuse of being poor.Also why didn't we asked junior president who is also a model. To help seeing club?
>>31162090Because that would make sense and be logical.
>Manner of welcome breaking out samefagging>AGAINNever change /tg/.
>>31162131>Because she would not do it due to Fredendall.Fixed that for you.
>>31162169Curb your paranoia.
Hey guys... does the whole school know about their visit?Maybe we should ask O'Hara to keep an eye on the anime club. Just in case.
>>31162171Thanks bro. Forgot that for a minute. Maybe we should still try and use it as an in though. Find a way to drive a rebellious wedge in.
> Some strange mixture I suppose since it appears to be a tie.You say offer your hand to Maho. “Welcome aboard! It’s nice to see you all safe and sound!”Maho nods, shaking your hand politely.Lisa leans into Fairless’ ear to whisper, “Does the Anime Club know about this?”Fairless says, “As far as the Anime Club is concerned, this is a German school, not a Japanese one.”Maho whispers something into Akaboshi’s ear. “Nishizumi-sama is grateful for you welcoming her aboard your ship.”You nod. “Of course.” You gesture over to the Councils. “You remember my crew, Nancy is my Vice President, Lisa is my treasurer, Ramirez is my secretary, and Kitten is my best good friend.” Maho and Erika look at you, confused. You shrug. “Moral support. We also have the Junior Council, President Betty Grable, Marilyn Maxwell, and Jane Russell. And then we have the Seniors, Henrietta Carnegie, Andrea Frick, and Claire Walker, and the Senior Vice President Bernadette F. Fairless.”Maho, Erika, and Akaboshi all look at Fairless, terrified on the inside but not outwardly showing it. Akaboshi says, “It’s nice to meet everyone.”You blink. “Oh, one more thing!” You present the scarf to Maho. “A welcoming gift. As a thanks for the Sturmpanzer and all the support you’ve given us.”Maho takes it, smiling a little. She bows politely to you, then says something in Japanese which you assume to be thank you.Erika says something, to Akaboshi translates as, “We would like to see the school, so we’ve brought our own vehicles if that’s not too much trouble.

> Ride with Maho, Erika, Akaboshi, and their friends aloneYou get stuffed in the middle seat between Akaboshi and a familiar looking girl. “Gertrude Pool, this is Nishizumi-sama younger sister, Nishizumi Miho.”You offer your hand to her, smiling. “Nice to meet you, have we met before?”She tilts her heads, curious, then says something in Japanese. Akaboshi translates it as, “I believe you two met at the hotel, you ran into her apparently.”“Oh, that was you!” you say. “Nice to see you again then.”Miho smiles at that. Akaboshi says, “She’s also brought her crew with her. Isuzu Hana, Reizei Mako, Akiyama Yukari, and Takebe Saori.”You look back at all of them, smiling at them as well. “It’s nice to meet all of you!” They nod, greeting you in Japanese.Damn it, is Akaboshi the only confident to at least try and speak Japanese?”Erika looks back at you and says something. “Itsumi-san wishes to know where we’re going first.”> School Campus> Tankery HQ> Drive around the Block> Other

>>31162656> School CampusSure the HQ is the big thing but you don't spoil that first.
> Tankery HQYou pull into the Tankery HQ, and everyone piles out. You say, “Spared no expense. We came into some pretty nice money for it.”You show them around the initial building. “Here we’ve got a lounge, working showers, a lecture hall, a planning room, etcetera etcetera.”Miho says something in Japanese. Akaboshi continues to translate. “She wishes to know how long you’ve had this building.”“Only a month or two really, had it built in a few days before the Tank Meet if I recall, funnily enough.” You snap your fingers. “But of course, let us come to the tanks!” Yukari squeals, stars in her eyes.You all come into the Tankery HQ’s Tank Hangar. Yukari yells in amazement, quickly speeding around, shouting in fast paced high pitched Japanese as she runs from the Sturmpanzer, to the Churchill IX LT, to the M8A1 GMC, and all around your tanks.Akaboshi says, “Akiyama-san really likes tanks.”“I can tell,” you say.> Move onto the Campus> Show them around the tanks> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

> Show them around the tanksYou say, “We’re taking good care of the Sturmpanzer IV you sent us.”Erika blinks. “Stupa?”You nod, to which Erika happily runs over to the Sturmpanzer, running her hand on the restored hull. Akaboshi says, “Stupa was Itsumi-san’s trainer when she was a Freshman before she was assigned to her Tiger II.”“Oh,” you say. Erika looks over at you, skeptically. You raise your hands defensively. “Don’t worry, I won’t kill it.” You continue on with the line up, and you actually see that your M4A3 and your Panther chassis has arrived. “These two are new arrivals, we’re planning on getting some of our new crews in them.”Yukari squeals, coming in between you, Maho, and Akaboshi. She says something in Japanese. “Akiyama-san is happy that you happen to have a Panzer IV and a StuG III like their team does.”“What team do they play for?” you ask.“Ooarai Girls Academy,” says Akaboshi. “They won the tournament against us.”Oh. Huh. You completely forgot about that actually. Huh.You motion over to your M4A1E8. “And there’s our tank. Hasn’t changed much from the Tank Meet but it’s served me and my crew well.”Maho says something to Akaboshi. Akaboshi says, “Nsihizumi-sama thinks your line up is quite unique. It’s somewhat similar to her little sister’s.”> Move onto the Campus> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>31163415I will after the next few updates.> Move onto the CampusAfter managing to drag away a distraught Yukari, you all pile into the cars and drive off for school.Akaboshi asks you, “So is Lafayette Girls Academy a good school?”You say, “The best! We’ve got all kinds of programs for students of all kinds. We’re actually thinking of restarting the exchange program after the elections.”“Elections?”You bite your lip. “Nevermind, but anyway, LGA recruits mainly out of states below the Mason-Dixon line and Northern Virginia. My sister actually wants to attend, she’s a big fan of Miho and Maho.”Akaboshi says something to Miho, to which Miho smiles, blushing a little. Maho says something back to her in Japanese, and the two laugh quietly.Boy, you kind of wish you knew how to speak Japanese.You arrive at campus.Maho comes up to you, phone in hand. Akaboshi asks, “Nishizumi-sama requests a few pictures with you, her sister, and Itsumi-san.”> TAKE PICTURES?> Y/N> Other

Miho, Maho, and Erika stand next to you as Akaboshi takes pictures of you with their phones, then your phone.Finally, after about twenty or so pictures, it’s done.You say, “You like taking pictures, huh?”Akaboshi says, “How else will we remember the fun we had?”Well, can’t argue with that. Regardless, it’s time to show them around the school. You show them through the various department buildings, through some select classrooms, the lunch hall, the gym (the one that turns into a pool, turns out they don’t have one), the sports field.All of it is resolved by lunch time, where you meet your Tankery Crews outside.“We’ve all decided to spend the rest of the day with you guys,” says Kate. “Figure we might as well.”You nod. “Cool!”Akaboshi asks, “Where shall we have lunch then?”> School> Tankery HQ> Some place nice (Got any suggestions?)> Black Forest Peak> Other

> Some place niceYou decide to have yourself some lunch at a nice barbecue place. It’s well known for its ribs, burgers, bbq sauce, and all things meaty and chewy. Certainly the most American thing you can do for the Japanese. It even has a stage where the Freshmen play their music idly, to the amazement of the Black Forest Peak girls.You sit down with your staff. “Man, Black Forest Peak.”Lisa looks over to the Black Forest Peak girls gathered around the Magicians, performing card tricks with them. “Black Forest Peak girls do not know how to have fun.”You shrug. “Well, they’re nice, Lisa.”You look over at the sisters Nishizumi, having lunch with their crews.

Enjoying yourselves?”Akaboshi nods, sitting between Maho and Erika, across from them is Miho and her crew. The tall one has a HUGE fucking plate, ribs, wings, breasts, fries, nuggets, EVERYTHING holy fuck girl. Akaboshi says, “It is nice of you to treat us to lunch. We would have served you some lunch at our Academyship.”“Oh please,” you say. “You’re our guests, this is how we show hospitality. Enjoy yourselves.”Saori says something, to which Akaboshi asks you, “Are there are many eligible bachelors on this ship?”You shrug. “A few. Not many, this is a Girls Academy.” Saori looks a little disappointed at that.Suddenly, there’s a burst of smoke as Erika Weiss pops in. “Behold! The power of MAGIC!” she yells, her cape flowing in the non-existent wind and her hands flailing with MAGICAL POWER. “I shall perform tricks that dare defy the power of the human imagination!” She holds out her hand. “… for five hundred yen.”> SEE A TRICK?> Y/N > Other

> YYou place five dollars into Erika’s hand, and she quickly makes it disappear into her sleeve. A deck of cards flies out of her other sleeve and onto the table. “All of you, please pick your cards!”You, Erika Itsumi, Maho, Koume Akaboshi, Miho, Yukari, Saori, Mako, and Hana all take a card. Nine cards in total. “Memorize them well! Burn it into your head, now place them back in the deck!” The cards are placed right into the decks.Erika picks the deck up, shuffles it quickly, then throws it behind herself, the cards going everywhere.…Akaboshi asks, “Was that it?”Erika smiles, her hands folded behind her back. “Check under your plates!” You all lift your plates up to see playing cards. Wait. What. You pull them out. “Are those your cards?”Akaboshi shakes her head. “No.”Erika blinks. “Huh? Are you sure? Let me see.” She takes the cards from all of you, confused. “Oh, damn it. This was a good trick too!” She turns the cards back to you. “Are you sure?”The Japanese Erika jumps from her seat, bewildered. “HUH!?” Miho, Saori, Yukari, and Hana all clap, amazed.Those are indeed actually your cards.Akaboshi laughs. “How did you do that?”Erika says, “Magic!” With that, she disappears into another cloud of smoke, deciding on entertaining another group of BFP students.> Finish Lunch> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

It might give us ideas on how to invigorate LGA's own clubs.A longshot, seeing as how nofun BFP is, and how Ooarai's clubs are deteriorating, but that's metagaming.On the other hand, I kinda want to get an in-depth perspective of the Kursk vs. Black Forest match from the Black Forest team itself, although I know it would be a sore topic for them.
> Converse Casually“So, you girls enjoying yourselves so far? I know our Magicians can be a little obnoxious-“Erika yells something in Japanese, tugging on her hair. Akaboshi says, “Itsumi-san is a still bit bewildered by the trick.

It’ll be 8,000 Dollars for the first night and only the first night.”“Or, we can park ourselves at a nearby motel.

> Finish Lunch> Talk Tanks“So, Maho, do you think I have a chance against Chi-Ha-Tan?”Maho nods. “You do,” she says, much to Erika and Akaboshi’s surprise. “Nishi Kinuyo is a tough opponent that is flexible and can adapt to hard situations, but she can be very brash if you can force her into such a position. That is something to exploit.”You smile. “You speak good English!” Maho blushes a little, biting down on her ribs.Yukari says something in Japanese, to which Akaboshi says, “Make no mistake. Japanese tanks are very good in close quarters, but they crumple in long range distances. It appears your fight might be able to facilitate such a plan.”“Of course-“ Oh shit. Plan. You forgot about the plan. You stand up, dusting yourself off. “Well, I’m sorry but I have to make arrangements to leave. I’m sorry if I seem rude.”Maho shakes her head. Akaboshi says, “It’s fine! We understand your position. We can find our own way back to Black Forest Peak. You are free to visit anytime.” Maho says something else. “Also, Monday, Nishizumi Miho will be facing Robert A. Heinlein Military Academy in France. She hopes you will watch.”You nod. “I will if I get the chance.” Miho smiles at that.With that, you say your goodbyes and leave the restaurant.

I still hold firm we need to go on the offensive; box them in, flush them out.What are we doing with the flag anyway? I'd rather have it travel with the main force where it can be watched and covered rather then sit on our side of the river begging to be snuck up on by a forded tank.Having it at the front means CHT can't avoid our main force, they'd have to engage us unfavourably if they want to win, right?
> Answer“Moshi, moshi? What’s cooking with my littlest sister?”“Hey, Gertrude. What’s up? I hear you’re fitting to take on Chi-Ha-Tan tomorrow!”“That’s right, we’ve got our battlefield sorted, we’ve got our flat tank sorted. We’re just getting plans together and a neat little hotel.

Okay?”“Well,” Dory says, “You can count on us!”“Yeah!” says Anne. “We won’t let you down.”…Anne says, “No, really, we won’t let you down.”“Okay then,” you say.You all pile into the strategy room where Lisa brings up the map on the table. “Alright everyone, let’s say hello to our newcomers-“ There’s a few hellos and how do you dos here and there. “And let’s begin our meeting. This is the field of battle.”Lisa says, “Now, Chi-Ha-Tan has a lot of fast tanks, they’re not great in a fight, but they start closer to these crossings. They’re the only crossings between us and them, which means holding them is going to be important. Now, I’ve narrowed our options to two basic plans.[1/3]
>>31166654[2/3]“If we opt for a defensive goal, we can pretty much let them come to us. That relies on using our faster tanks to get to the crossings first and holding them against enemy attacks while our slower tanks reinforce them.”“Alternatively, if they get to the Crossings first, we can easily take them on in a fight provided they haven’t brought heavy tank destroyers in or any big surprises. It’s a simple plan that requires patience, but it should be simple enough to perform.”
Schteel, can you mark that the T34 has spaced armour now? Say our 3 kits are mounted in the shop too?
>>31166693>>31166698I will.[3/3]“Otherwise, we can go for an offensive strike with two wings for each crossing. Chi-Ha-Tan is well known for its irregular combat ability and if we mess this plan up, it’ll REALLY mess up.”“However, it’s the best chance for ending the match quickly and decisively. Japanese tanks are not brawlers, our tanks are. If we can take them on in unfavorable conditions and on our terms, we’ll keep the advantage and win.”You nod. “Sounds solid, Lisa.”Lisa nods. “Any questions?” Nothing. “Alright, Boss. What do you think we should do?”> Offense> Defense> Write in
>>31166746http:images/1396126397007.pngThis is what the Excel Sheet Anon made
>>31166746>> Offense>> DefenseThere was the plan that involved the pinning force using our TDs.
>>31166746>DefensiveWe can out fire them, also aren't there any Hills in which we can place our artillery?We can place the Stug, the Brumbar, the Chi-Ha, and the T-34.Have Our Scouts radio their positions and strike
>>31166746Pic related. Red is King Tiger plus 4 tanks to push across dam. Blue is Howitzers plus Luciano with Far sight/Lockdown to provide fire support on crossing then cover the bridge. Green is Us and fast tanks to ford river and go up the hill. Hold momentarily at the little jut out to observe bridge and see if there's any movement coming at us. On fording, send heavier tanks first while light tanks provide cover.
>>31166746A mix is my suggestion. We use the Hellcat to cross the dam first because it's the fastest damn thing that'll be fielded. It will wait in ambush watching for approaching Renaults. They outrange pretty much most of what CHT will field so can hold the position for a bit. The KV-85 with it's perk will be up to support it ASAP.We'll move our force across the dam and just move in with Chi-Ha or Stupa support.Any force not committed will sit defensively watching the bridge and any potential fording points. When resistance is encountered or any other signal that it's a good time to move, they'll move up. The goal for them is to be unexpected and support the main advance, ultimately locking CHT in a tightening box.We can then dictate their movement around us, force them to engage at range.The flag will be with the force going up the dam. I don't want it flanked sitting defensively. It will also force CHT to engage the main force if they want to win.
>>31166746> Defense> Write-inJust at the middle bridge though. The dam busters team will cross.
I'm really nervous. Every match can spell the end of the quest and I'm worried we've gotten too bold. Let me think for a bit, but hopefully more tactical Anons show up.
>>31166814I like this plan in a way but we have the advantage so won't playing defensively work well, make them fight in our neck of the woods.Fighting them their will only fall ot any traps they might have.With that said, Ace's should have far sight, with the Churchill, Sentienel, Kv-85, and the Sherman.We Should be equiped with Somua, Cupis, Panzer IV, M8A1, and Hellcat Artillery, Brumbar, Chi-Ha, Panther, T-34, Stug
>>31167028At least this is one of the more lopsided battles we'll have
Reposting last version, with Renault FT speed!
>>31167048I very much doubt they'll come to us. They know they can't win an assault save by the O-I. The only crossing point for that is the dam. So at the very least we need to meet them there for the inevitable battle.I'm also fairly certain the O-I can outshoot us. Bigger calibre and armor although that's not everything. Aces if they're assaulting need the machine gun spam to counter the O-I. Luciano with Far Sight can designate targets for the howitzers. We need Blitz when assaulting their rear to take them out.
>>31167055I'm not as worried about this school as I was Walter Christie. I was just ready to get arty snipped.
>>31167048My concern is that they'll expect us to do exactly that. It would just be a matter of waiting for the O-I to get up to the dam to break through.If we get aggressive, we can maneuver around them, put them on the backfoot. Any tanks we send across to ford can hunt for their flag while CHT is occupied trying to deal with the KV and Tiger guarding our flag and pressuring them.
>>31167105Basically it seems if we spread in different groups they will just swarm them one by one. They'll probably keep a lookoout on the center and the right and wait for our move.As long as we can keep them at distance we can get them.
>>31167105>8 km/hI know what you mean, though.
>>31167119Their faster and are a guerilla force.I fear by going in, will invite them to do their close range tatcics like what they did to the spanish team.
>>31167119>>31167158They don't have a damn O-I. Or if they do, they only got it since the last time we studied them.Their most dangerous tank is the Chi-Ri, Perrine told us it would have a 75 mm with an autoloader.
>>31167263Then why are we worried? Just send in the Tiger and watch the fireworks.
>>31167263So let's play defensive?
> Defense> Write inYou say, “We should try play this safe, go it defensively. As usual Janek and Anna will be on scouting duties. Charlotte and Kate will be our wing commanders, and I’ll command what reserves we have. However, I should say that we need to remain flexible. Our big assault guns definitely like the Chi-Ha and the Sturmpanzer are going to remain in reserve and I’ll plop them somewhere where they can flush Chi-Ha-Tan out of hiding.”Lisa nods. “Chi-Ha-Tan’s known for it’s ambush tactics, if we go in will nilly, we’ll be picked to pieces.”Luciano raises her hand. “So which one of us should lead a team to the dam then?”> Charlotte Luciano (PANTHER AUSF. G.)> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)> You (M4A1E8)> Write in
I like this plan >>31166814 with aspects from this plan >>31166924Basically, we'll posture defensively on our side of the river while pushing up the dam on the left. They'll have the flag to force CHT to engage them. That will draw the O-I and Chi-Ri.The force posturing would ford the river and begin hunting, confident that they won't run into anything dangerous.Both forces would have either the Chi-Ha or Stupa, not committing both to one flank. We need one to hunt and break suspected ambushes while the other supports the defense.
>>31167322Sending the Tiger near them is the only way to lose it.
>>31167348> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)No question.
>>31167348> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)>>31167263We also assumed Perrine wouldn't field the E-100, yet she got that in the last minute.This is just planning for a worst case scenario.
>>31167348> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)We give them Far Sight
>>31167348>> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)>>31166698>>31166772Just managed to get to a pc. Was on a phone earlier.-----------------------Reviewing our last training session, animation team seems to have settled into their sherman so i'm adding the familarity bonus.I think we're ok for this match.
>>31167461I rather not give them the familiarity bonus just yet since we're going to put them into the M4A3 soon
>>31167461That rocks. Our crew, at least, will be close to Eliting after the match.
Also here is their line up against King Michael I University High School :>5 Chi-Ha Kai>1 Short Barrel 120mm Gun Tank>1 Type 3 Ho-Ni III>2 Type 97 Chi-Ha>1 Chi-NuObviously they didn't have yet the Chi-Ri and were limited to 10 tanks, but that should still give a good idea of what we will face.
>>31167505That goes away after we slot them into their new tank.For all intents and purposes going into the match with CHT, they're familiar with their current sherman.Also we should purchase the caffee from the shop already. Theres going to be a lag time before the tank arrives after all.
>>31167552We don't have money yet. Rather not girl scout it just yet.
>>31167583>Rather not girl scout it just yet.But the consensus has always been to girl scout the caffee.
>>31167552I think the plan was to buy it Monday out of pocket and wishlist the Cromwell. That's why we haven't gotten it yet.>>31167605When? I certainly don't remember a consensus.I'm fine with it either way, don't get me wrong.
>>31167529Or the O-I superheavy.
>>31167263Just in Case the O-I does show up, they dug it up in Manchuria.
>>31167660Thing is, after paying for the hotel fee, we don't have anywhere near enough cash to purchase the cafffee out of our discretionary cash.I recall the Caffee being a confirmed we-want-to-buy but the cromwell too?
>>31167683Where is it mentioned?And could have done last one team study then.
>>31167724Thread 58#Also we mined out the Chi-Ha-Tan, there would have been no point.
> Kate Knispel (TIGER II)You say, “Kate. Are you up for it?”Kate nods. “Sure.”“Great,” you say. “What else is there?”Lisa says, “Well, we can settle out composition before the match in detail. You said you’ll take the Sturmpanzer and the Chi-Ha and assumedly the StuG. For now, the new kids will travel with Kate, the veterans with Charlotte.

The Cromwell on the other hand would need upgrading to competition specs, and eventually could be fitted with a 17 pdr and turned into a Challenger. Which would probably work really well as part of a scouting team with the Chaffee.M36B1: 16,000Panther Ausf. G: 22,000StuG III F/8: 14,500Panzer IV Ausf. G: 6,000Sturmpanzer IV Series Two: 5,000M4A4 Sherman VC Firefly: 12,000T/34-57: 23,500Total: 99,000Getting another Panther up and running is probably the most sensible priority, and worth spending a Girl Scout token on. The Sherman needs to be competition specced before being used, and I think the plan was to turn it into a Jackson though an M4A3e8 would also be pretty useful. The upgrade to the Firefly would give us another medium tank that could kill all but the heaviest anchor tanks. While there is some controversy on the T-34, I think using a model 1944 base chassis answers concerns about armor protection and refinements, while the anti-armor performance of the high-velocity 57mm and the regular 85mm are a wash, and the lower crew requirements are a must for Rifle Club. The others are mostly incremental improvements, though upgrading the gun on the StuG III would increase its deadliness a bit.So we should probably buy the Panther work using a GS token, buy the Chaffee out of pocket next Monday, wishlist the Cromwell then, and given the expense of the T/34 conversion strongly consider using a GS token for that. If we come into any extra money this week or next the low-hanging fruit are the Panver IV and Sturmpanzer, though converting the M4A4 into a Firefly would probably be the greatest single boost to the capabilities of the team not otherwise accounted for.

>>31167994You mean just like how Perrine regularly takes rare tanks and cuts them up for giggles or how Black Forest fielded a Maus?
>>31168029We need confirmation on whether or not the T-34/57 can be applied into it yet.We're saving a girl scout token for the Somua. That is not low fruit.
>>31168062>> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)PravdaOne last time for the extra CP incase we need it
>>31167923>So we should probably buy the Panther work using a GS token, buy the Chaffee out of pocket next Monday, wishlist the Cromwell then, and given the expense of the T/34 conversion strongly consider using a GS token for that. I agree completely with you're conclusions. Though I think we should refrain from spending anything on our other tanks until the next match approaches. I'd hate to miss out or wait even longer for awesome purchases because we decided to invest in marginal improvements.>>31167994Because they bought it. It's theirs.

>>31168062>> Talk to a Crew (Specify)Girl Scouts, Freshman, and Sewing.Did the preparations go off well. Did they make sales?
>>31168086We'll considered that if or when schteel confirms that cooking the books like that is possible.
Inb4 we win the match and the ship leaves without us.
>>31168062>>31168140This please.I didn't want their efforts to go to waste
>>31167976>You forgot the Somua and the Easy Eight for trudeThere is very little if any difference between an M4A1(76)W HVSS and an M4A3(76)W HVSS. I don't think a cast hull offers sufficient disadvantages to a welded hull to be worth the 30,000+ that converting it would require unless we really have nothing better to do with our money.The Somua likewise is a pretty low-value/high-cost upgrade. The prototype conversion will take a lot of time and money for a tank which is still on the low end of capabilities for a medium tank by late WWII.
Added some O-I infos, just in case.
>>31168062> Study a Tankery Team Pravda (or another team we have yet to mine out)we have been mining these teams for a long time. i don't remember when the last time we got any tactic from them.
>>31168198The former I understand, I just thought it should be mention though I'm curious about the difference between a cast and wielded hull.The Somua, I will disagree, the Sewing Club is one of our best tank crews. We can just have the Girl Scouts Sponsor the conversion and we wait a week, like with the Churchill. It won't effect the Shop Conversions either so it won't hurt us.

>>31168154>>31168289We really, really need Schteel to answer whether we can. Let's wring it out of him after the thread.
>>31168289And you're still making assumptions that we can funnel the transaction through the shop when schteel neither confirmed nor denied that such a thing is possible.Frankly the silence makes it likely that schteel disproves of it.
>>31168374We can ask/call Perrine after the match.
>>31168374To be fair, we've never directly asked him and he sometimes misses the discussion between posts.We can't know for sure until we get him to say.
>>31168289>http://pastebin.com/ZMy4Q2sqSo Schteel still don't consider SARL 42 legal? A bit too bad.

>>31171339That's a Torch?Oh German if your still here, what do our tanks look like with Camo paint on?
>>31171356> That's a Torch?It's Chihatan's official school emblem.
So, next thread or the one after the battle, we have some purchases to make.We need to call Perrine, let her know we want her to convert the S35. She'll get the cash through Mr. Mishka whom we also need to call.We need to have the Panther converted so we have a tank available for Needlepoint, assuming CHT wants another 120mm Short Barrel.We need to Comp. Spec the M4A3 as soon as we come into the money. It's better in that condition for practice.We can hold off on the T-34 and pretty well every other tank in our lineup until our next match is announced or we set up another practice one. We still need to keep an eye out for more good tanks until we hit 20, with or without the Chi-Ha, so saving money is good.
>>31171401This is going to be one strange tank fight
>>31171440We have the money to Comp. Spec the M4A3.As for the Panther, I guess we can get it up and running, not really comfortable letting Sewing Club use it but if it's only for a week.We really need get Nancy to set up Practice matches for us once we hit Australia
>>31171580We have a broken down Sherman.We had tanks known for their reliability break down because we don't comp.spec it.
>>31171580You missed with your name and trip.Hawkward. I hope '94 was just a good year for you and not your birth year.
>>31171619Yeah, I caked that pretty hard.Probably make a new one.No, it is actually my birth year
>>31171619Is being 20 a bad thing now? Or do you mean it's stupid using your birthyear for anything related to security?
>>31171654The Way, That was you?How do you think of our plan for Chi-ha-tan?
>>31171666The latter, definitely. It's not even basic security 101, that's basic security 54 we (oughta) teach toddlers and children.As for your first question & >>31171654 my condolences. Shouldn't someone be changing your diapers and washing your binky and bottles?
>>31171672Probably work. If you send the fast tanks across first and secure a beach head, the mediums move in and reinforce it, then the heavies provide over watch with their bigger guns from your side before moving over the bridge when it's cleared up>>31171745You've got a point.
>>31171859That's what we did with Willaim Adams though?What makes this any difference Map wise, etc
>>31172049Did we? I recall the plan was to sit on a hill and let them charge at us, and then retreat into town.
>>31172071We needed to secure the town though, which we did not. The ace tanker managed to catch them
>>31172071Hold on, that was the first match.WA we had crappy tanks and because of this the original plan was to let them cross the bridge into our guns.But then some anons decided to swing the votes and push into the town.>>31172102The fact that it came down to the Aces wasn't too good. Compared to the last match we had, it was a shit show.Last match people followed the plan (relatively), and it didn't come down to the Aces saving us.
>>31172128We should play defensively, we stick to our side of the bridge and stick under cover. Maybe radio bombardments from our artillery.Also quick question, which is better Cast Armor of Wielded Armor for the M4 Sherman.
>>31172175Cast armor should be, in theory, a stronger, more cohesive piece of armor without any of the obvious faults of welded hulls (like, say, inefficient or subpar welding along the seams).Nominally casting reduces weight while improving overall strength as there aren't any seams or joints that could be exploited.
>>31172274So the M4A1 is better then the M4A3/Easy Eight?
>>31172373The cupid is already fitted with the 76mm gun.We're already an E8 for all intents and purposes.
>>31172393I see, so how about a Grizzly, I heard it was an improved M4A1, maybe we can go for that.
>>31172373The GAA in the M4A3 had a higher P/W than the M4A1.Can manage about 5 miles per hour more for longer because it doesn't overheat
>>31172411So, we exchange protection for range?
>>31172408Grizzly's a Canadian produced Sherman with the 75mm gun.It'll be a downgrade at this point.
>>31172453Well we can apply an engine upgrade the Cupid in the future. It'll be fine.
>>31172453It's unlikely the difference between cast and welded hulls will come into play.We want whatever variant gets us the most sustainable horsepower, which will probably be a diesel variant producing lots of torque.
>>31172453Or speed. Really, the welded hulls were used because they were easier to produce.IRL the German heavies and Russian tanks weren't as hot shit as they are made out to be on History Channel.But in this world, matches only last a couple hours and maintenance is assured between the matches as well as spare parts.So expensive resource intensive tanks should be the ones that are the most useful due to the fact that your battles aren't back to back and you have the supplies required to maintain them.
>>31172539So Which is better, Should we keep the M4A1 to get the Easy 8?Also is the Grizzly an improved M4A1?
>>31172522Yeah, the Diesel has a pretty nice powerband
The difference is small enough that until we have the option to Elite it, we should consider our Sherman to be as good as it's going to get.We're working on limited time, we need to spend our money efficiently. There are much higher priorities then to squeeze a bit more speed or armour into an already great tank.
>>31172593Refer to: >>31172488>>31172622Agreed, we need to fill out our lineup first.
>>31172593Depends on if you want to spend money on something that will give you a marginal advantage.
>>31172622Well, it's a pretty average tank...The US made it great because we had way more of them than the krauts did theirs.Volume has a (more important) quality all on its own.I wish the autists who had a spergfit at the Pershing...didn't. That would be a nice tank to have right now. Hard to argue with the 90mm M3 and around 100mm of well sloped frontal protection.
>>31172692>I wish the autists who had a spergfit at the Pershing...didn't.Yeah, that mad me sad when it was voted away.It's probably been deformed by Perrine
>>31172691Fair enough, only reason I heard you can install a 17 pounder on it but I'm not sure if that is better. >>31172692We made a lot of money out of it, and created our HQ, it was worth it
>>31172692The aces were kind of right though.Still we sold it away for cash that we needed and turned a profit.
>>31172692We'd be 50k down right now if we hadn't sold it.Yes we could have made the money back in other ways and manners but we need that money.
>>31172740You know it was a jab at the other quest right?
>>31172728Well we get the m36b1 Jackson out of the deal so we still have the 90mm M3.My Autism is still crying for the double panther though but we got the Jackson for it so it's not so bad.
>>31172779Was that Model Tankery Illegal though?
>>31172788We're changing it to the TD?
>>31172771Advocating here and now we start shopping around for another (tankery legal this time) M26 we can buy using a GSA chit.It'd be the bee's knees.What would be neat is a command variant for Trudy & Pals. Too bad we're not in Modern and can ride around in a T-80UK.
>>31172831That was the point in buying it. So we can get the FireFly and the Jackson.>>31172835We're getting a lot of heavies though.
>>31172831I'm sure as shit voting against turning it into a jagdpanther.What a steaming pile of shit.
