Charlotte herself is a bit… well she’s certainly no morning person. Nancy herself is having some trouble trying to make her eat.“It’s too early,” says Charlotte.“You’re sounding like Kitten,” you say. “Come on, eat.” You take a bite out of some delicious blueberry pancakes. “It’s made with love and all kinds of natural ingredients a healthy girl needs to become big and strong!”Charlotte glared at you. “I wasn’t aware you were my mother, Gertrude.”Kitten giggles a bit. “At this rate, she’s everyone’s mother.”Regardless however, breakfast goes by relatively quickly. You all exit Charlotte, and she leaves you to join her crew as they walk to school, leaving you with your staff and Kitten. Lisa crosses her arms, sighing. “Her room was so messy.”All of you looked at her like she was nuts. Lisa narrowed her eyes at all of you. “Oh, come on! You can’t deny I’m right!”Eh, time to head to school though.> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>31889199> Converse Casually (The Election)-how are we looking?
>>31889199> Converse Casually (The Election)Sure.
> Converse CasuallyAs you walk along to school, you decide to ask, “So, how am I looking for the Election, guys?”Nancy, Lisa, and Ramirez stare at you for a second.“Besides naked,” you quickly.“You want to know something funny?” asked Lisa. You nodded. “Me and Nancy took a quick strawpoll on Facebook for candidate popularity. You have a huge lead.”…You blink. “Out of what?”Nancy says, “You have 75%, Rankin is trailing with 15% and the remainder is abstaining.”…“Huh.” You scratch your chin. This is incredibly confusing. You’d have thought those pictures would have ruined your reputation but it seems like all they’ve done is BOOST it. Ain’t that something to laugh at all the way to the bank.Nancy smiles. “I think we have this election sealed up tight! Might not even need to go to the Polling place of course.”You shrug. “We should make appearances, Nancy. It’s polite after all. Besides, I’d like to see Fredendall’s face when they announce the winner, that’ll be something!”With that, you arrive at school.> Walk Around> Head to Class> Take a Vacation Day> Talk to Someone (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>31889490No complacency allowed, for all we know Fredendall got someone to doctor the poll results for that purpose.> Walk AroundI want random encounters!
>>31889490>> Head to ClassI'd also like to suggest that we have some of our staff conduct exit polls on election day. This would allow us to (1) know if our supporters are actually going to polls, and (2) if Fredendall has some tricks up her sleeves that we need to respond to.
>>31889565I hope that bitch didn't make money our of those pictures

>>31889490>Nancy smiles. “I think we have this election sealed up tight! Might not even need to go to the Polling place of course.”It's totally rigged, Trude will lose.
>>31889625We have joined Charlotte in delinquency.
> Head to ClassYou yawn a bit as you sit in math class. At least you managed to catch up on the subject a bit, but for now most of these numbers, lines, and expressions read out like a Greek tragedy to you. Regardless though, you take down some notes, try and give the Professor your best attention, and in general just be a model student.Though, the love letters that you’re now receiving not one at a time but in bunches is getting a bit much. You’re flattered, honestly, but you don’t know how to handle being the object of someone’s affection. It’s not like it is with guys when there it would be other way around. Been a while since Audie and Eugene talked to you actually, you wonder briefly how they’re doing.You step outside Math class, to be stopped by one of the coaches. “Hey, Pool. Listen, one of the coaches is out with a fever and I need someone to replace her. It’ll only be until lunch.”You ask, “Is it really a wise idea to ask a student to do that?”The coach shrugs. “Hey, you’re responsible. And I figure the Seniors might at least listen to you. Don’t worry, it’s just a swim class.”> Sure> No thanks> Write in
>>31889705> SureMight as well let Trude practice her leadership skills, not like she has any OTHER skills that'll help her get a job.
>>31889705>> SureFlex Trude's leadership skillz
>>31889705> SureQuick question German, I have heard that with if we turn the A1 to A3 we exchange armor with engine power.However, I heard that this is compensated by adding more armor to the A3? Tankers added slabs of armor from destroyed Shermans to increase protections to A3s.So does that mean will the amount of applique armor we added to the A1 will increase?
>>31889820A3 has better armor and engine power
>>31889915I heard arguments and The Way confirmed cast armor is better then wielded.However, the A3 has a better engine power and it was possible that we can add slabs of armor to the tank
>>31889820I think so. I'm not particularly understanding the question unfortunately.> SureYou stand at the side of the pool. All the Seniors sit in the bleachers in front of you, looking bored, disinterested, or otherwise distracted. Seniors, not as bad as Freshmen but they certainly have that carefree attitude that comes with being on the last legs of their High School education. You can’t wait until you can pull that shit. Included in the crowd are most of the Senior Student Council, Bernadette Fairless, Andrea Frick, and Henrietta Carnegie.You cross your arms, looking at them. “Alright, shall we get started?”One of the seniors raises her hand. “Do we have to?”“Yes.” You snap your finger. “For one thing, you all need to get into your swimsuits.” You clap your hands, egging them on as they stand up and mutter. “Come on, come on, I’m not your mother. Let’s go.”After about ten minutes, the Seniors all arrive, clad in… custom swimsuits for themselves. Bikinis, one and two pieces, frillies and everything. There isn’t a rule dictating that you needed to wear the schoolswim suit mind you, but the Seniors certainly took advantage of that. The only person who seemed keen on the school swimsuit was Fairless.You sigh, “Alright. Let’s get to work.”> Water Polo> Laps> Diving> Write in
>>31889954>> Water Polo
>>31889954>Water PoloFun, but still a good workout.
>>31889944Actually, the welded armor itself is stronger because the hardness can be more easily controlled in rolled armor plates. The armor on the A3 is also simply thicker. Weld joints are of course a weak point that cast hulls do not have, I'm sure The Way mustve been referring to that, or he would have lost his wayyyyy (alright I'll go kill myself for that one)Castings allow round shapes too, which is of course advantageous if the enemy just glances you but the center of the tank's front isnt all that rounded, just where it meets the sides so it only bounces shot that already glance the vehicle anyway.tl;dr just dont get shot in the welds.
>>31889954> LapsObviously you start with laps, and then do Polo.
>>31889954>> LapsOkay, I'll try to make if clearer (I'll probably fail but..)So which would be better the quality vs quantity of armor between the A1 and A3the A1 has the cast armor which in quality is better.However, the A3 can carry more armor due to it's engine power but it's wielded.
>>31889954> Water Polo> Laps for those who don't like fun
>>31890024refer to >>31890021Actual quality of the metal is worse in cast armor, but does not have weld joint weakspots.Cast armor has a little bit more roundness to it, but the welded A3 simply has thicker armor.I'd rather drive the A3 even just for the armor, let alone the additional engine power.
>>31890021>tl;dr just dont get shot in the welds.Advice for just about everyone everywhere.
>>31890058Okay, that may be something worth buying though at the bottom barrel of our shopping list
>>31890058"quality of metal," is not by definition worse because it's cast, it's "worse," relative to more-consistent slabs of RHA. Castings tend to be more porous, but that's a tendency, not an absolute truth.Cast armor eliminates a lot of structural weak points.
>>31890104less consistent is objectively worse. consistency is reliability. You can get lucky, you can get fucked too. That's bad. And when you have 60 000 tanks riding around you want reliability.
> Water Polo“Behold!” Henrietta stands on Andrea’s shoulders, the ball in her hands as she towers over the opposing team. “This is the SUPER SCHOOL SWIMCLASS ULTIMATE ASSAULT!”>>=[| SUPER SCHOOL SWIMCLASS ULTIMATE ASSAULT |]=<<“Charge!” they both scream. They rush at the incredibly shocked and confused opposing team.Only to get pushed over by Fairless. They create a splash big enough to engulf Bikini Atoll.You blow on your whistle. “Henrietta, Andrea, that’s against the rules. You can’t do that.”The two of them surface, slapping wet hair out of their faces as they return to their lines. At least the Seniors are enthusiastic about Water Polo, you could certainly do with a whole lot worse.Finally though, their class is over. They all head to the lockerrooms for showers and a change into their school uniform. You sigh, sitting on the bleachers. No rest for you just yet. Suddenly, you feel someone sit next to you, Fairless.“Oh, Bernadette,” you say. “What’s up?”“Not much,” she says. She’s still soaked from Water Polo, wringing some water out of her hair. Her swimsuit glistens and yeah no let’s go into detail on that. “Did the coaches really talk you into doing this?”> Boast – “Talk me into it? I volunteered.”> Neutral – “Yeah.”> Polite – “They needed help.”> Write in
>>31890104With casting you get weak spots, impurities, and soft spots, all of which are objectively worse than a weld line that's completely behind the armor plate like on a welded Sherman's glacis plate.
>>31890164>> Polite – “They needed help.”> Write in: Talk about the elections, share polling results, and ask if she knows Fredendall is upto anything suspicious
>>31890164> Polite – “They needed help.”
>>31890164>Polite – “They needed help.”
>>31890164> Polite – “They needed help.”It's hardly unusual. Well, at LGA at least.
>>31890135Object B being "more consistent," then Object A doesn't make Object A objectively inferior.If you're going to autism and shit all over a thread, at least be enough of an autist to understand the nuances of rhetoric.Whatever, nobody in these threads is interested in anything other than the opinion of a 16 year old.>>31890164>yeah
>>31890202>I cant provide a sensible counter argument so I'll just call him an autist instead.Also yes it does. First thing in Engineering class. Consistency, consistency, consistency.Maybe when you grow up and attend college you'll learn the same thing.
Rolled 3, 4, 6, 6, 6 = 25>>31890164>> Polite – “They needed help.”
So would the A3 be a good idea for a lead tank?The engine power still makes it faster and as lead tank might be a good thing?
>>31890281M4A3E8 is the best thing we can make out of Cupid given its role.
>>31890281>>31890302It shouldn't be a high priority at this point thought, we need to fill out our roster in time for the 20 v 20s first and then upgrade our weaker tanks. Cupid is pretty fine as it is right now.
Been out a while. We lesbians with Kitten yet?
>>31890385Then read the past threads to catch up.Don't start this shit up again.
>>31890376The T-34 chassis would be a good addition I think. We can find a 5 man crew for this one and get it fitted to the T-34/85 spec.
>>31890376Very much so, but I never said otherwise, did I now?
> Polite – “They needed help.”“Hey, they need help, I answer,” you say.“Ah, that’s like you,” says Fairless. “Figures. Always off helping someone or finding some problem to solve, huh?”You smile. “Figure it helps keep me on my toes. You know what they say, Yesterday’s Enemy is Tomorrow’s Friend.”“That don’t sound relevant-““Well, it’s close,” you interrupt. “But point is, Fairless. You should always be willing to help others, that’s the good Christian thing my father taught me and it’s what I will teach my children when I do have them.”“Can’t argue with that,” says Fairless. She paused for a bit, then looked over at the entrance to the lockerroom, seeing Henrietta and Andrea with their phones out, recording. “What the fuck are you two doing?”Henrietta says, “Waiting for you two to French.”“”Ha, ha, very funny,” she says. Fairless stands up then walks over to them, glaring at them. The two of them smile nervously as they back away. “I’ll show you two what for, come back here.”“No thanks, see you!” They ran off, Fairless walking behind them.Good grief.> Teach the Next Class (Then Skip to Lunch)> Goof Off> Work/Study> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>31890451>Work/StudyWe need to catch up to our studies
>>31890376Of course, that's obvious. I just wanted to find out if it's worth it .Now that I know we can put it on the list, not as a top priority but we can add it for reference

>>31890525Theres the other problem that the upgrade appears to change the cupid's gun to the weaker 75mm so I'm kind of leery about the upgrade.
Oh since its Wednesday we can do side-quests!Question is what quests? I'm again leaning towards Polish and Freshman but we should recruit maybe 1 more team. We have the Chi-Ha so if we recruit one today they can use that for practice tomorrow.Again, Only for practice! Until the new tanks come on monday
>>31890575We can ask Mr.Miksha to keep the gun. We did that before so no problem
>>31890451>> Teach the Next Class (Then Skip to Lunch)
>>31890637Non-loyalty Quests.Recruit crews is getting to a priority again as we can get them trained up faster before the 20 v 20 starts.We can get a crew immediately and fit them in the Type 97 and the panther can be ready in a days notice. I'd suggest we find a single 5 man crew first.
> Work/Study> Teach the Next Class (Then Skip to Lunch)You decide to take the time to read and study up for your classes between classes. Once the next class shows up, you go through laps with them, showing them how to do a proper stroke, how to kick their feet properly. They’re far more attentive and patient than the Seniors at least, but that’s probably because they’re Sophomores just like you.And probably because they’re waiting for a wardrobe malfunction from your swimsuit. Good thing you’re wearing the standard issue, designed never to break.Finally though, it’s time for lunch. You hit the showers quickly, then head on to the cafeteria to meet up with your crew. “Hey girls-““What were you thinking!?” Lisa yells at Ramirez, her cheeks flushed red. Ramirez simply stares at her, neutral. Come to think of it, you can’t remember the last time Ramirez ever said anything. “I didn’t say I wanted to and now you’ve gone done and did it you bitch!”“The hell is going on?” you ask Nancy.Nancy says, “Ramirez set Huxley on a date with Lisa.”You nod. “Ah, that would explain it.”Lisa screams, tugging on her hair. “Do you know what it would be like in a relationship with that godawful slacker!? Goodness, gracious, fucking hell!”Ramirez shrugs. “Hey, he seemed nice.”“Yeah, to you!” She snapped her finger, getting up two cartons of chocolate milk along with the usual lunch. “But to me, he’s always a total fucking jerk and a complete loser!”Ramirez says, “Maybe that’s because you’re a jerk to him who won’t give him a chance.”“Aaahhh!” Lisa slaps her tray on the table as you sit down.> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>31890637>>31890703Have we started recruiting the Writing Club yet? What other crews are other there besides Senior/Junior Councils?
>>31890703Eh, the panther is less of a concern right now since it won't be ready for practice. Maybe during the weekend maybe.I want to do freshman for money purposes also it seems we're almost done with the Polish teams' quest.Our job is there to help them prepare not to see it to until after the debate that's what the History's quest is for
>>31890737Oh dear.>> Converse Casually (Topic?)"Why don't you give it a shot first. He might surprise you with a side you've not seen."
>>31890756It actually would. It takes a single day to be readied and its wednesday. It'll be ready by tomorrow. The problem is a matter of cash though I'd rather prefer our would-be panther crew get in as much training time as possible.
>>31890737Kind of want to make a phone call to Eugine and Audre right now since Trude is wondering about them now. But Lisa's problem comes first.> Converse Casually (Lisa)"You don't have to go if you don't want to, we can just ask Benita to go in your place she seems interested in Huxley." Bait her into hesitating if she does then add."Look, it's just a date it won't kill you and it's not like your going to put out on the first date. Just have fun and besides he's one of the few guys in this ship so take advantage of this."
>>31890821Tank Shop is working on the Panzer IV and also if we do it today it will be ready by Friday.
>>31890874Wasn't that done yesterday?
>>31890893We ordered it yesterday, it's being worked on today.
>>31890800Dont fucking force relationships on people>"Dammit Ramirez, what did you do that for?"
>>31890737> Converse CasuallyThis one (>>31890853)Though now that it's been brought up, a blind date set-up might've yielded less initial hostility from Lisa.And election-wise, I'm surprised that Trudy doesn't have a catchy slogan that she and her crew will try to say to every potential voter at every opportunity.>>31890745There's the Computer, Gardening, and Blacksmithing Club that Trudy approved funding of, but we still haven't met them yet.I'm thinking that for the Juniors, Trudy might have to help them in making Prom Night a success, since Betty Grable did give the Tankery Club money to upgrade the tanks early in the tourney.After Elections, the winter pep rally and the battle of the classes are also some events to consider ripe for recruiting crews.
>>31890907If we ordered it yesterday, the shop usually lets us know if its too late and will be worked on the next day.There was no such word, so I'm assuming we ordered it sufficiently in advance for it to have been done the same day.
>>31890963He said it will be ready in time for practice thursday.Even if we order it today, it will be done on friday
> Converse CasuallyYou shrug. “Well, Lisa, if you don’t want to go on the date, I’m sure Benita would be willing to replace you.”Lisa puffs her cheeks out, looking away and crossing her arms. “Ha! I don’t care! She can become one of those teenage pregnancy statistics for all I care!”…Nancy says, “Are you sure?”“Yeah!”…Ramirez says, “You don’t seem sure.”“Well fuck you too, Ramirez.” Lisa jabs her in the chest with her plastic knife. “Just because you have a boyfriend doesn’t mean you can go get EVERYONE ELSE BOYFRIENDS.”Ramirez shrugs. “You seemed lonely.”“I am not lonely!” she says. “I am not going to even consider a relationship with Huxley! That’s final!”Ramirez narrows her eyes. “Hmph, alright. Give up the only boy who seemed interested in you.”“Eh?” Lisa blinked, looking at Ramirez, confused.“That’s right,” said Ramirez. “Huxley’s words himself. ‘Lisa seems cute, if she weren’t such a total bitch.’”“Oh that motherfucker-“> Side with Lisa> Side with Ramirez> Write in
>>31890932>And election-wise, I'm surprised that Trudy doesn't have a catchy slogan that she and her crew will try to say to every potential voter at every opportunity."Vote for Pool;She's got nothing to hide (as you've already seen)

>>31890997> Write in"Well, now that you know about this, what are you gonna do about it, Lisa?"
> Write inYou shrug. “Um, not taking sides or anything, but maybe you should show Huxley that you ain’t a total bitch, Lisa. I mean, he thinks you’re cute at least.”Lisa crosses her arms. “Oh, not you too, Boss.”Ramirez says, “Stop being such a pussy. It’s not like he’s going to date rape you.”“But what if he does!?” yells Lisa. “What if we go to like some fucking dive bar and he ends up putting a roofie in my drink and I end up like that one stupid virgin bitch from that Drug play last year!”Ramirez says, “I think you’re exaggerating.”Lisa muttered a bit as she settled into her lunch.

Remember that Team Chipmunk driving a PzIII mentioned in Ooarai's lineup? I think it might be these girls behind Miho.

>>31891445It could also possibly be the crew that Miho saved during her last battle with BFP, hard to know for sure until we actually meet them.
>>31891467Tonks, of course.This is before she gets drafted.
>>31891445I like that idea.> Talk Tanks“Alright, we need to start working. Ramirez, is there anyone who might want to join Tankery?”Lisa says, “Why are you asking her? She never talks to anyone.”… Good point. “Okay, Lisa, did you find anyone who might want to join Tankery?”“Well…” Lisa rolled her eyes upwards in thought. “The Senior Council has expressed interest, but with Fredendall hanging over them, it’s not a likely thing. Actually, Nancy, did you tell her?”Nancy’s eyes widen. “Oh right! I forgot! Maho Nishizumi called me earlier yesterday, and asked if your school was perhaps setting up an exchange program! She would be willing to send over some of her commanders to serve as advisors for you or perhaps as a spare crew.”Lisa nods. “Saunders and Saint Gloriana made the same deal too. All we need is to restart the Foreign Exchange program which ought to be a sure thing with your reelection.”“Of course. Besides that, did you find any good sponsorships for us?” you ask.Lisa says, “Well, Boss, I talked to some bigwig companies, none of them seem willing to support Tankery, something about wanting to keep their peaceful integrity and not wanting to endorse such a violent sport. The only ones who seemed interested were the Smithsonian Institution.”“Of course,” you say, crossing her arms. “What did they want?”“They wanted to buy up Hobbes in exchange for a 5,000 Dollar weekly scholarship. That’s not my decision to make, so I told them to wait on you.”[1/2]
>>31891484[2/2]You nod. “Alright.”Nancy says, “I was also looking for other teams to have a sparring match with. The only one nearby is Anzio and unfortunately I’ve been put on hold before I could actually speak to their Commander.”You nod. “That’s fine, that’s fine.” You look at the clock. “Ah, lunch is almost over. Listen, we’ll talk about this stuff another time. Keep it in your minds, yeah?”With that, all of you separate to your respective classes. Time for Health Class.…You blink, huh? Oh, you fell asleep.Eh, not a problem. It’s just health class.But regardless, the rest of the day flies by relatively quickly. Theatre, History, and French class go by with naught but a few pop quizzes that you rush through, probably nothing too special.You’re outside of the building when you receive a text message.“We Aces are hitting the gym, join us if you’d like.” – KnispelTempting.> Embark on a Subquest (Specify)> Head to the Gym> Find your Staff> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

> Head to the GymGood thing you’ve packed your gym clothes with you. You walk into the gym, huge little room with all kinds of exercise equipment, some space sectioned off for yoga classes, and even a ring for boxing and wrestling. That ought to be fun.Kate greets you, smiling. She’s sitting next to a treadmill being used by Octavia. “Gertrude, good to see you. Didn’t think you’d make it.”“I try to make time for all of my crews,” you say. “What are you guys up to?”Octavia pants a bit. “We’re just keeping ourselves fit.

> Box with WendyYou stand at the ropes, grabbing some gloves and other protective gear. Wendy is currently busy beating the everloving hell out of Joanna. “Mind if I cut in you two?”Wendy stops, letting up. “Sure, if you want to. Joanna?”Joanna rubs her cheeks, pouting. “You think you’d go easy for me, Wendy.”“I am,” she says.You quickly put on the gloves and stretch out a bit. It’s been a while since you’ve meant to punch someone, but now? Well, might as well get the practice. You stand across from Wendy. “So, Wendy. I was thinking, sponsorships, you know? They want to see that Tankery isn’t violent before they want to sponsor us.”Wendy nods. “Well, Tankery is an interesting thing.” She adjusts the straps on her gloves. “It’s a way for girls to get together, form bonds unlike any other, become strapping fine women in the field of battle. It’s…” She rubs her cheek, thinking. “It’s camaraderie.”You nod at that.

> Give me your bestYou grin evilly, putting up your dukes. “I’m no baby, give it your best-“ Your vision flashes as Wendy gives you mean jab to the face. “D’oh!”Another jab to the chin. Ow motherfuck you bitch. Wendy steps back, on her heels, poised. Alright. You throw a punch at her, only for her to duck and give you a nasty uppercut. Jesus motherfucking Christ that girl hits hard.Joanna yells from the corner. “Kick her ass, Gertrude!” Yeah, easy for you to say.Wendy gives another combination of jabs and hooks, with amazing speed and fury that reminds you of your old days in Middle School.Actually, this would be a good time for a flashback, but everytime you do, Wendy literally punches you out of it.You shake your head, spitting onto the ring and keeping your dukes up. Finally, Wendy gives you a powerful cross, flooring you. You lie back, staring up at the ceiling light.Joanna and Wendy stand over you. “You okay?” says Wendy.> Boast – “I’m out of shape anyway, I had you.”> Neutral – “Yeah, I’m good.”> Polite – “I’m fine, good game, Wendy.”> Write in

> Polite – “I’m fine, good game, Wendy.”Wendy helps you to your feet, to which you say, “I’m fine. Good round, Wendy. Didn’t take you for a boxer.”Wendy shrugs. “You have to take your anger on the world out on something, might as well get some exercise doing it.”“Ha.” You strip off your gloves, leaning on the ropes. Octavia and Kate come over, leaning on the ring’s wall. “Hey, what’s up.”Kate shrugs. “Admittedly, Gertrude. We have kind of an ulterior motive for inviting you out here.” She nods over to Michelle, who’s still busy lifting weights on her own. “It’s Michelle.

You change back into your school uniform and end up outside the gym. But beyond that, it’s time to get thinking. Who should you recruit?The Seniors have said they are interested, but with Fredendall breathing down their neck, it’s not like they can really do anything. Though, they can probably be convinced. It’s not like they’ll be here for much longer this year anyway.The Juniors are in the same boat, they’d certainly like to help but Fredendall.Who else though?

>>31892808> The Foreign exchange
I wonder how large the tankery contingents from saunders, glorianna and black forest will be.We just happen to have a US, UK and German tank free or incoming.
>>31892951Honestly part of the reason I want to get them.Also setting up the foreign exchange (which we need the student council approval) We can also set up the awareness program for rifle team and maybe for tanks
>>31892951The tricky thing about Gloriana is that they are still in the tournament and we could face them in the finals. (Although let's be honest, Oorai is going to stomp them if they get that far) It should still be interesting though, particularly with language barriers
>>31892951get a russian tank to even it out
>>31892951Wait, german? We ordered a Chaffee and Cromwell?We didn't order russain tank?
Just finally watched Kelly Heroes last night.Those Tiger/T-34 really hilarious. Don't we offered something like that on early thread?
>>31893110It was a majority decision that the IS-2 was shit and converting it back to an IS-1 would be too costly.
>>31893110Panther chassis is still sitting in the stable.And theres a T-34 chassis available that looks more tempting everytime I look at it.
>>31893146i mean it offered on shop. Sorry
>>31893155I remember the Panther but the T-34, we didn't order it and is still under debate.Also if you keep bringing it up, it will end up like the IS-2
>>31893177I... didnt?Not me at least. Some other anons. I'm in the 'support to buy it' camp at least.
>>31893220Some anons are bringing it up and I'm not sure if I want it.
>>31893177>>31893245Dude, the T-34 has only just now been mentioned in this thread.
> The Foreign exchangeYou quickly call up Nancy. “Nancy, it’s Gertrude. Listen, how do you propose we can get the Foreign exchange program up, get ourselves a fresh, experienced crew on our hands?”“Well, it’d have to go through the Student Council. We can certainly negotiate that after the Elections. The issue is who do we pick for the exchange program?”“Yeah, yeah… Hm. Nancy, see if you can get like a conference call together with the interested teams, I’ll be over to your dorm.”With that, you quickly hurry over to Nancy’s place. You arrive there in good time, and she lets you without much fuss. Nancy’s dorm is clean and pretty as ever, it even smells of a fresh cleaning. Nancy smiles, “I cleaned up just for the conference! Even sprayed a bit of freshener!”You say, “You realize they won’t smell that, right?”“It’s the thought that counts,” says Nancy. She leads you over to the laptop. “I’ve managed to set up a Skype call with everyone. Gertrude, we have…”[1/2]
>>31893245Why not? Care to share your reasoning?
>>31893252It was mentioned a few times Tuesday when we refreshed the list. I'm not fully against it yet but I also remember what happen to the IS-2
>>31893269[2/2]There are three screens. On the top left corner is Maho Nishizumi, out of her regular uniform and in a simple black blouse. On the top right corner is Kaye, chewing gum and staring curiously at the screen. And on the bottom right is Darjeeling apparently taking a sip of tea.You smile, taking a seat. “Sorry to call you all on short notice but we are very interested in restarting the exchange program.”Kaye nods. “Yep! We’ll be sure to send you our best crew!”“Actually,” says Darjeeling. “We were hoping to do the same.”Nancy says, “Unfortunately, Principal Tennyson won’t allow you all to send a crew. He wants to ease the school back into the exchange program with just a very small group.”Kaye smiles. “It’s settled then, we’ll do it! We all know English anyway.”Darjeeling takes a sip of tea. “As do we. The apple does not fall far from the tree.”Maho simply sits back, waiting for the argument to start.> We can take Saunders’ crew> St. Gloriana’s crew would be preferable> Black Forest Peak’s would be experienced> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?> Write in
>>31893282>Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?This is an exchange program, different people can experience different thingsThis will help our program as a whole too.But please no three man crews...
>>31893282>Write in:Ask Maho who she wanted to sendKaye and Darjeeling got their say, let's hear from Maho
>>31893282>> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?This is the worst option. For our battleline.This is also the option most inline with tankery. Meeting new people, getting to know them well and having fun.
>>31893271Mostly because i don't want another t-34/57 since we're aiming for that for the rifle team.The T-34/85's gun is a bit weaker then the 57mm but also a 5 man crew in which we are having an increasingly harder time finding crews for.Also no one wants a casemate tank
>>31893274>>31893271I guess discussing re: screaming at each other is part of this quest, but i'd rather save the incoming debate for the weekend ingame, when we've mostly dealt with any other thing that may urgently need our money. Still, if you don't want a tank, present some facts and debate them, don't just say no and call everyone else a faggot.> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?>>31893345Point taken
>>31893282> We can take Saunders’ crewWe seem to be better friends with Kay than Maho and Darjeeling, and even though the BFP crew will be more experienced, the style of fighting they're used to will be too different from ours.
>>31893282>> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?Like yourselves, LOL.
>>31893282>>31893323I'm fine with this/Also long as it's not a three man crew. Also Its not about tankery its about cultural exchange and all three schools have very different cultures.
>>31893309>This is an exchange program, different people can experience different things>This will help our program as a whole too.>But please no three man crews...One person each, but obviously there needs to be a Foreign Exchange Liaison position to help run the program and accommodate their needs. So, that'd coincidentally be a four woman crew...But who could we recruit for this task?Oh, Bernadette...But I do like this solution. Remember what the name of the Academy Ship is, after all. A colorful cast of foreign volunteers drawn from all over... erm, Japan, fits in pretty well.
>>31893282> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?I WANT IT ALL
>>31893385Fairless will have her own crew within the Seniors
>>31893385I seconding this.And on tank debate, i think we have enough medium/medium-grade tanks for now. One more heavy with decent punch won't hurt.
>>31893345Actually though, we've been finding more 5 man crewsIts the 3 man crews that were apart from the norm in the start.And yes, I was thinking that the chassis could be built to a T-34/85 of the 1944 spec of T-34s, unlike the T-34/57 which will only be of the 1941 spec. We'll have to upgrade it a second time to the 1944 spec. Would be cheaper and we get a good end-ww2 tank quickly, letting us focus on upgrading the others.
>>31893448That would be the panther once we get it up and running?
>>31893504The Panther is a medium tank anon.
> Can’t you all send one person for an entire crew?“Hold on, before there’s any argument. Can’t you all just send one person for a combined crew?” They all look at you, confused. “You know? You’re all Japanese anyway.”Maho says something in Japanese, to which Darjeeling says, “That is a fair point. We were simply thinking of sending a four girl crew each, led by one of our best officers. But that is an interesting theory.”You nod. “Right. We can definitely go for broke on this. One girl from each school, plus any other schools you want to convince to join in.”Kaye says, “I think it’ll be just us three for now. Do you really want to add a fourth member to the crew?”> I’ll see about recruiting someone for that> See if you can invite a fourth school> See if one of them could send a second crewmember (Which?)> Write in
>>31893474Perhaps, but we need to find crew. Also i'm worried the new group from foreign exchange will only be a three man crew.Also another reason I don't want the chassis is that while your argument is sound, will be brought up again trying to turn it into a T-34/57.An argument I rather not have
>>31893531>> See if you can invite a fourth schoolI'm interested who they will bring?Maybe Chi-Ha-Tan
>>31893504Hmmm i don't know. 'real' heavy will be better but i supposed Panther will do until then.
>>31893531>> See if you can invite a fourth schoolMore side characters!
>>31893504Panther's a medium tank
>>31893531>> See if you can invite a fourth schoolAnzio pls, the OVA is getting me hyped.
>>31893531>> See if you can invite a fourth schoolOoarai maybe?
>>31893531>> See if you can invite a fourth school>>31893530Panthers on the heavy side of med at the very least though. I dont think we'll find another tiger 2 quickly and it'll mean giving that heavy to a new crew too.
>>31893590Oorai doesn't have crew members to spare and they are still in the tournament I am not a big fan of Chi-Ha-Tan and their captain either
>>31893531Pravda! Lol, get someone right before the match.
>>31893531>“Hold on, before there’s any argument. Can’t you all just send one person for a combined crew?” They all look at you, confused. “You know? You’re all Japanese anyway.”Don't know why I felt a little offended by this?Maybe because out of all the things to say, Trude went with this response.She could have gone to say that the school comes first and having multiple individuals from different schools will kick start a dead program.but she went with this.I hope I'm not coming off as really angry, I'm honestly not but I'm just surprised she went with that reasoning.
>>31893536The 57mm argument was mostly due to the crew size of the rifle club. Since we're going to search for a 5 man crew for the tank, I dont think they'll be too many arguements against the type 85.
>>31893607Well to be fair, their captain feels like a failure despite having a long tankery tradition they haven't won a single title unlike saunders, BFP, and st.glorinna. her recent wins through the tournament went to her head and became overcondifent but it shouldn't reflect on her team.Maybe by sending one of their crew (a respectful one) they can bring some honor to their team
>>31893602No, I rather get a pershing if we're talking heavies, still classified as a heavy during WW2
>>31893607Perhaps they don't have TANKS to spare, but they do have crews.
> See if you can invite a fourth school“Maybe you guys can invite a fourth school to participate? Who can do that?”Darjeeling scratches her chin a bit. “Pravda received some freshmen who might be willing.”“I can contact Anzio too. Annie might be willing to send over someone who’s interested,” says Kaye.All of you look over at Maho. She simply shrugs. Guess she doesn’t know anyone then. “Alright,” you say.Darjeeling asks, “Who do you want though?”> Pravda> Anzio> Maybe we can find a different school later, we’ve got time> Write in
>>31893607There's always the brits, I suppose. That somewhat loses the foreign language aspect though.
Guys. When the foreign exchange crew comes, we need to stuff them in a russian tank.If we find chi-ha-tan, their rep will want the type 97.Glorianna's will want the cromwell, saunders the chaffee and black forest the panther.Because instead of pleasing one, we upset them all with a russian tank. Because fairs fair.And their reactions will be worth it.
>>31893761>Chi-Ha-Tan?They might bring in someone experienced Also both crews are teams we may be facing
>>31893761>> Write inHow aboug chi-ha-tan?
>>31893761This is difficult choice.Oh well, maybe> Write inand see if Chi-Ha tan available. If not go with Anzio.
>>31893761>PravdaRussians, Americans, Brits, and Germans all in a tidy Japanese package. It's like a collector's thing for major war contributors.
>>31893786Interesting but no but not because I'm against it.mostly due to the fact they may come here soon and we will probably not have the t-34 ready in time
>>31893789>>31893805>>31893848All we will learn from Chi-ha-tan is how to lose.
>>31893761>>Chi-Ha-Tan?Look at it this way, we can provide the team member with experience that may help them next year.
>>31893868We will TEACH them how to WIN like the (wo)MEN OF DESTINY!>slap is optional and will applied accordingly.
>>31893868Its not all about winning.And they do have good expertise in ambush tactics.Would be useful if we go against kursk.
>>31893868Anzio also knows nothing but lossesRussains are only giving us inexperienced freshmenLastly, both teams are teams we may be facing
>>31893786Also funny thing is despite the teams using a certain nations tanks, their using different doctrines.Saunders using Shermans but ends up with a Chaffee.St.Glorianna uses Infantry tanks but ends up with a cruiser.BFP....well the Panther is probably the only tank that will suit herbut two our of three ain't bad
> Chi-Ha-Tan“Maybe Chi-Ha-Tan will be willing to send someone over?” you ask.Darjeeling smirks. “Bold. I suppose I can contact Nishi-san about it later.”“Yeah!” says Kaye. “Me and Nishi go way back anyway, I’m sure we can convince her to send someone over. It’ll be a real treat!”“Of course,” you say. “So it’s settled, all of you will send one person individually. How soon can we expect them?”Darjeeling says, “As soon as you approve the Foreign exchange program for your school. We can have them as early as Wednesday next week.”“Perfect,” you say. “In time for the match with Pravda too.”“Sweet!” Kaye grins. “Can’t wait to see you guys duke it out! It’ll be like one of those hypotheticals I hear so much about! America versus Russia! Rocky versus Drago! Shermans versus T-34s!”Darjeeling says, “I do not think it’ll be that dramatic, Kei-san.”“Hmph!” Kaye crosses her arms. “Anyway, we’ll leave her, unless you got any questions?”> “Nah, we’re good.”> “I actually do.” (What?)> Write in

>>31894058Any tips against Pravda? Also thank them for their cooperation to the program, we'' send them 'gits' as thanks.We can promote the Freshman's soundtrack by giving to them as gifts. it might pick up
>>31890021Sharp corners are stress concentrators and are more likely to crack when compared to rounded corners. I don't believe a shell that doesn't penetrate can crack the armor along the corner unless it lands very close, but I can believe a high caliber HE shell could crack the armor along the welds without actually penetrating.I suppose the quality of the RHA of the Cast armor could come into question. But I would like to add large grains only form when the piece of metal is thick enough for the core to remain hot while the outer surface is cooling.In regards to Cast vs Welded, I would say that as long as the Cast armor is heated uniformly and cooled uniformly, there should be no difference in strength when compared to a Hot Rolled Welded plate.Then again they were trying to get Shermans off the production line as quickly as possible, so I can't say what QC was like back then.

>>31894296would take a day to convert so it'll be ready before practice on thursdayits not like they'll have a chance to practice on anything anyways other than on thursday itself

>>31894400Wed -> thursTank delivery is in the morning if our previous experience ie anything to go by.Thats a day to work with.
>>31894460They work on it the following day so it's normally.Wed (Order) -> Thurs (Convert) -> Friday (Done)it's always been like this
>>31894387Oh shit, we forgot to warn them about the anime club!Should we recruit Fairless now? Have her ready for practice?
>>31894387>Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.Actually, when you think about it, it does make sense, since you have to admit that even if you know you're not gonna win, you still damn try to.>>31894521You're exaggerating anon, I hope
>>31894387> Embark on another Subquest (Specify)Ace or Freshman or Polish, Don't care which
>>31894559Well considering the Anime Club's reaction to BFP they will think of them as American, British, and German.I fear for whoever Chi-Ha-Tan is going to send
> Embark on another Subquest (I shall fight no more, forever.)Nancy is a bit saddened that you have to go, but understands the fact that you have to help someone anyway. That’s been your job for quite a while since you started this year. At best, you’re everybody’s friend, at worst you’re everybody’s errand girl. Could be worse, you could be everyone’s sex slave. Now that would be something.Unless you were James Deen’s sex slave, sweet mother of Christ that man.But regardless, you call up Michelle DeWitt. You decide to invite her to dinner.“Dinner, just the two of us?”“Sure, I feel like you and I could do some talking, it’s honestly been a while you know?”“Sure, I suppose. Where do you want to go?”> Classy restaurant> Your place> Her place> Maybe you know a good place (Write in)
>>31894715>> Your placeTrudy's the best at cooking
>>31894130Also. Someone brought up porosity in the metal when it's Cast.That is actually very possible, especially if it's cast in sand. But, this isn't Soviet Russia. Material Engineering back then wasn't something to disregard. I would like to believe they sanded and polished the armor to remove scratches and imperfections that might act as stress concentrators.I'm not saying they did do this, just best case scenario.>>31894231I actually couldn't find any books about the valentine in .pdf format. I can't tell you anything that isn't already on the Wiki.
>>31894715> Maybe you know a good place (Write in)NANCY'S OMG WHY DO YOU LEAVE POOR NANCY?!
>>31894715>Japanese Place.After our meeting with them, I kind of crave for some Tonkatsu
>>31894715>> Your placeMake it casual and friendly, not potentially romantic. And don't be pushy by going to hers
>>31894764Calm down, Nancy's a big girl, she can take it.
>>31894715>Classy restaurantMAXIMUM GOSSIP
>>31894744So is it or is not worth it?I was just wondering if it can carry a 17 pounder as a Valentine and not as a Archer.From the website I last showed you, it said that it was a Mark XI equiped with a 17 pounder
>>31894715>> Your placeRestaurant's just not the place for this sort of thing.Also we might get spotted.
Next thing we know people are gonna be talking about our "date" with Michelle. And so the harem grows.
>>31894954Needs three for a harem. The populace at large isn't counting Kitten.
> Your place“Meet me at my place. We can talk, maybe watch a movie or something.”“Alright, I’ll see you there.”With that, you quickly head on to your dorm. Time to prepare for Michelle’s arrival. You quickly start putting your room together and everything, getting all the trash away, making the bed as well.You also pick out ingredients for dinner. You might want to figure out what the hell you want to make.And also outfits, you can’t stay in your school uniform forever. You still have that little black dress for homecoming, but you also have various casual outfits.God, why are you even thinking about this? It’s not like you’re trying to seduce Michelle.Anyway, details.> What to wear? (School Uniform, Tankery Uniform, Casual clothing, black dress)> What to cook (Write in)> Maybe a movie?

>>31895076Also, the movie is a romance.
>>31894853Looks like only the Archer mounted the 17 Pounder. Looking at the Wikipedia page which has a reference (Although I couldn't find a digital copy of the book) to the XI. It only mounted the 75mm.Is it worth it? I don't think it is. It's not fast enough to be used as a Scout, it's Armor isn't strong enough to be used as an Anchor, and the gun isn't strong enough to deal with enemy armor.
>>31895180I like New England but it's up to Trude I guess
> What to wear? (Casual clothing)> What to cook (Spaghetti)> Maybe a movie? (Something with action)You press down the blue blouse and the black miniskirt adapted from your tankery uniform. Looking neat as fuck. You also get to work on the pasta for the spaghetti and pick out a movie. You feel like some Indiana Jones would do you some good. Those three movies are quite possibly the best kind of action movies.Good thing they didn’t make a fourth one.You’re busy putting the final touches on the spaghetti when Michelle knocks at your door. With your apron still tied around your body, you quickly answer the door. “Hey, Michelle. Come in! I just finished the spaghetti.”“Ooooh!” Michelle’s eyes go wide at the prospect. “I like spaghetti! You cook a lot, Gertrude?”“Well, recently, yes,” you say. “But I’m learning. Go ahead, have a taste. I was also thinking on some clam chowder if you wanted some.”“Oh, could you, I love chowder!” she says. You smile, then start getting to work in the kitchen. Michelle meanwhile starts digging in into her plate of spaghetti. “So, we watching a movie?”“Yeah,” you say. “It’s on the TV, go ahead and hit play. It’s Indy and the Last Crusade.”“Sweet,” says Michelle.

>>31895330> Talk with Michelle (Ask her how is she doing)> Make some Clam ChowderDon't spring the big question until later
>>31895330>> Make some Clam Chowder>>31895443There is no fourth one.
>>31895353How about a B1 :^)In all seriousness, a Crusader might be worth looking into.
>>31895479My inner tank nerd wants a B1 but I know it's limitations.Crusader much as i like one cannot for fear of people wanting to upgrade it into a comet.Maybe a T-70 or BT-7
> Talk with Michelle (Topic?)> Make some Clam ChowderAs you prepare the clams and get started on the broth, you ask Michelle, “How are you doing, Michelle, anything new with you?”Michelle shrugs as she watches the movie. “Eh, nothing too interesting. I did see you get wrecked by Wendy but otherwise my day’s been pretty boring.”“Oh? Nothing to discuss, nothing to talk about?” You smirk, looking at her with your best smugface. “Maybe you’ve got a beau to talk about?”Michelle laughs. “Ha! Yeah, as if guys want girls who pilot tanks. Gertrude, I’m going to be completely honest with you. Tankery, despite popular belief, doesn’t really make you that popular with guys. It might even scare them off!”Hahaha, yeah, hahaha… oh, man that hurts.After a spell, you finally manage to get the clam chowder out. You hand the plate over to Michelle, who quickly starts spooning up the contents right into her mouth without abandon. “Jeez, Michelle. Big eater ain’t you?”Michelle nods, her cheeks puffing with chowder. “Mmffam.”“Your mother ever teach not to talk with your mouth full?”Michelle swallows, with bits of chowder dabbing her cheeks and lips. “Well… I was always taught it was polite to eat quickly, show the host that their food is good!”> Talk with Michelle (Topic?)> Eat Dinner> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>31895271it was a vagina/lesbian joke.Just pointing that out in case it was missed or ignored.

>>31895626>>31895663>>31895715This? Let's not make the food taste bad by talking about bad things yet. Also didn't one of the delinquents and sewing club had experienced with relationships?They can help us capture the elusive male.
>>31895715Ah, I like this choice of dinner conversation.
>>31895626> Talk with Michelle (Topic?)> Eat DinnerSmall talk is fine.
>>31895715>>31895758But Ramirez had her boyfriend before she entered Tankery. Just putting this out
>>31895758Well she hasn't shown any huge interest in getting one, maybe we should not set her up with random people on the ship. What would ACTUALLY help her is finding some way of dealing with the whole shooting incident, and help her reconnect with the rest of the elites.
>>31895715But Ramirez is everything Nancy and Gertrude aren't.You know...not a frosty bitch. She's got that Latina passion. Meanwhile, /tg/ is afraid of boys and their cooties.Stop being a waffling cunt, Anons.
>>31895817I know, just fulfilling the quota of cute girls doing cute things, Ramirez is the envy of all tankery woman, she does tanks and her boyfriend.>>31895825it was mostly joking small talk and romance doesn't mean it can fix relationships.and most of the ships are woman.
>>31895869>passionRamirez is like the least passionate person in the quest though anon...And this whole romance thing is just a massive digression anyway, Michelle has shown no interest in any and her issues are entirely unrelated to it.
> Talk with Michelle> Eat DinnerYou wag your fork at her. “You know, Michelle. Lisa apparently has a date with a very nice boy named Huxley, you know him?”Michelle nods. “Yeah, I saw him around the Tank Shop a few times. He’s handsome. He probably wouldn’t notice girls like us though. He’s dating Lisa?”“Ramirez apparently set him up on a date with her today. Lisa was livid at it, but you know, she turned to it eventually. And I’m glad for it too. Lisa’s a nice girl, she deserves a nice guy.” You slurp up some pasta. “Still, I envy her. I’d like a relationship like that one day.”“Why don’t you?” asks Michelle.“Eh…” You snap your finger. “I’ve met a few boys from time to time. Eugene for example, one of my personal good friends, and Audie Murphy is basically Captain Perfect. But you know, long distance relationships, I don’t want to have to deal with that. Besides, now that I think about it, Audie kinda came across as a bit creepy. Like he’s always trying to butt into someone’s problems and fix them.”Michelle shrugs. “Guys do tend to do that when there’s lots of women to whiteknight for.”“I suppose,” you say. You look at her a bit, she’s simply staring ahead at the movie. The Aces were right, there is something a bit off about Michelle.> Small talk> Confront the problem> Write in
>>31895913It was just kind of a racist comment about latin/hispanic passion b/c she's brown, but she's had on-screen conversations with the b/f where she just absolutely gushes (in Spanish).I don't know why you'd think she's passionless from Gretrude's narrow window of a POV. What she sees isn't the objective truth.kind of hoping/waiting for the reveal where Gertrude is a dishonest narrator and she's been Fight Clubbing it this entire time with Kitten
>>31895556>Crusader much as i like one cannot for fear of people wanting to upgrade it into a comet.How would that even work?
>>31895913She's only passionate when she speaks Spanish and/or is drunk >>31895962Confront the problem
>>31895962>> Confront the problemLooks like its kind of ripe."Michelle, whats wrong?"
>>31895962>Confront the problemFull shaft, just like my Californian pornos.
>>31895962> Confront the problemIt's time.
>>31895962>> Confront the problem>>31895971The Crusader was the basis for the Comet and a lot of components were used to design it
>>31895556A T-70 might be a good choice.
>>31896043Wikipedia says the Comet was developed from the Cromwell.
>>31896051Are we looking to get another light tank?
>>31896043>>31896094 Maybe you're thinking of the Challenger? That was a Cromwell variant with a 17pdr.
>>31896112Just a tank with a 3 man crew.
> Confront the problem“Is something wrong, Michelle?”Michelle looks at you, surprised. “Hm?”“I’m asking because… there is- I’m concerned. That maybe there’s something eating away at you.”Michelle grunts a bit, looking back at the action on TV. “I’m fine, Gertrude. It’s nothing, really.”“Are you sure?” you ask.“I’m sure,” she says. “Believe me, if I wasn’t, I’m sure you would know.”Yeah, she isn’t sure.> “I’ll leave it at that then.”> “You don’t sound sure.”> “You ever talk to Ekins?”> Write in
>>31896241> “You don’t sound sure.”
>>31896241>> “You don’t sound sure.”Not too direct, hopefully
>>31896241>> “You don’t sound sure.”
>>31896094Really, strange I thought it said many components were from the Crusader.Again a tank worth looking at for Junior team>>31896241Shit, I don't know how to respond....“You ever talk to Ekins?”
>>31896241>“You don’t sound sure.”
>>31896241> “You don’t sound sure.”Fine, fine.
>>31896351Junior team, their a three man team and we're looking for something they can use.A scout is useful, crusader and t-70 both sport a decent armament and speed
>>31896305As many parts as possible were to be used for the next tank, which were the Cavalier and Cromwell. The Comet was a fix to the Cromwells problems, so of course a lot of Crusader parts are inside it too. But that like saying the Hellcat and Sherman are the same, because they have interchangeable parts.
>>31896439Ah, makes sense.I didn't think we were seriously considering the Junior Council, seeing how Fredenhall can make their life hell
>>31896475Well maybe the Wolverine probably.Now I want another cromwell just to turn it into a challenger.>>31896479Their on the list so it might be worth looking into.
> “You don’t sound sure.”“You don’t sound sure.”Michelle shrugs. “Look, Gertrude. I came here to eat dinner, have a nice time with a good friend, and just relax. I didn’t come here to be lectured.”You nod. “I know, just… Please just talk to someone, talk to me, talk to Kate or Octavia if you’re feeling down. We’re all friends here.”“I know,” says Michelle. “Let’s just get back to the movie.”With that, you eat dinner and watch the movie, occasionally laughing or snarking at some of Indy’s antics, but otherwise enjoying right into the very end. With that, Michelle helps you put the dishes together for cleaning. And with that, she decides to head back to her dorm.You stand by the door for her as she packs her things. “Well, Gertrude. I had a nice night tonight! You cook a mean clam chowder that’s for sure.” She walks over to the door, smiling, very forcefully smiling. “Good night, alright?”> “Goodnight.”> “Take care of yourself, Michelle.”> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”> Write in
>>31896554>> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”This wasn't very productive
>>31896554> “Take care of yourself, Michelle.”
>>31896554> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”Sleepovers are fun!
>>31896554>> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”At the very least, give her a hug.>>31896578Well I wasn't expecting it to work on the first time. But now that she knows that we know, we just need to spend time with her. She'll open up on her own, on her own time.
>>31896554>> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”
>>31896554> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”We're going to be working hard with her aren't we?I even naively thought we could get her done by tonight
>>31896554> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”
>>31896553Well, we're not totally dependant on the shop. We just need to drop a few calls to a few people.Some of the other teams might have spare old tanks to sell.
>>31896675I know, the William Adams have a stock of Cromwells if I recallBut I'm not sure how many people want a Challenger.Also I want a Pershing more
>>31896554>> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”Sorry about before, i just have these maternal urges every once in a while.
>>31896699We have at most, 2 spots left, if we take the type 97, sell it or use it for training only.If we're looking at the T-70, that leaves only one.
> “You’re free to stay if you want to.”“You can bunk here if you want to, Michelle.” Michelle looks at you, surprised. “Just saying, my door’s open for you. I know, I might be coming across as a little creepy, but… honestly I- It’s that maternal instinct, thing.”Michelle looks at you, skeptical. “I’m not Kitten.”“I know,” you say.Michelle shakes her head, then opens up the door and leaves, shutting it behind her.Well.

>>31896724People want a Heavy an I think a 90mm gun is better then the 17 pounder
>>31896808>> Work/Study>Should we call Audie?
I should throw this up just because.I wonder what skill level the new combined Japanese crew will have.Also, Team Needlepoint still has 2 books. Just FYI.>>31896808> Study a Tankery Team (Pravda)
>>31896808>head to KittensMaternal instincts go!
>>31896843Gah.>>31896836Call Eugene, maybe. Not sure about calling Audie.
>>31896814There aren't many good "Heavies" (I use the bunny ears because the IS-2 is designated as a Heavy tank, but it's very similar in weight to the Panther which the Germans call a Medium.)Getting a T29/30/32/34 would be pretty kickass.
>>31896808>>31896836This or Call Eugene, Trude felt like she hasn't contacted them in awhile so might as well
>>31896895You'd support buying the T-34 chassis?
>>31896814they're...basically the same. Inna war scenario, maybe their small differences would matter, but in a controlled clime like tankery it's...not a big deal.The big thing is that a 90mm comes stuck to a Pershing, which offers pretty sophisticated levels of everything.the 17pdr is attached to smaller vehicles that are less protected/primary role is not fighting tanks but destroying them, or a Centurion. Possibly a Comet but that uses a 77mm bore instead of a 76mm and there's some other structural differences but whatever.Point is, gun performance is basically identical. Difference comes in what they're attached to.
>>31896907I'm up for calling Eugene but Audie is a creep.
>>31896945Pretty much this.Also we'll need to find a better approach to helping Michelle apparently, maybe brainstorm with the elites.
>>31896945ya same here I could see him as a charmer from hunter the vigil
>>31896945And trude's not?I have the feeling that we're doing the same thing to an extent.>>31896922He's talking about an American Prototype that uses a 105mm gun
>>31896945>>31896962>>31896986I think we do have to call him sometime maybe?Probably after elections then
>>31896808> Work/StudyDilligent Gertrude must continue.
>>31896922But it looks like the T29 is only barely passable.
>>31897021Why he's just some random who creeped on us once.
>>31896989"to an extent"The difference is that Gertrude has an Anonymous wearing a sock shoved up her asshole grabbing her brain. That's the only difference.>>31896922no hyphen. T34, not T-34. An American prototype whose main asset was BIG, although its 105 was a big improvement over the 90mm, and so much more so than the 76s.
>>31897021Why? I'd rather forget he ever was a character.Now Eugene needs a call, but do we know what time-zone he's in? Wouldn't want to call in the middle of the night, or whatever.
>>31897032That's hardly a problem, the T29 too is pretty bad.
>>31897046I make a retraction, along the line it got a 120mm instead of a 105,
>>31897044>>31897052Was he that bad? I thought people hated Eugine more?Also he's in okinawa
>>31897086No, Eugene was Trude and kittens old friend. Audie was just some bigshot they met at the prom on Heinlein
>>31897046Why are we wearing a sock to molest 'Trude's brain via her butt?
>>31897086It's not that he's all that bad. He's just a non-character we talked to him for like 10 minutes at a prom and haven't talk to him in months why would we start?
>>31896942Pretty much this. The Achille used Manual Traverse, the M36 had power traverse. The Firefly after a bit more research required a low rate of fire to compensate for the massive flash and they had to push their headsest against their ears and have their mouths open when the gun fired.The Centurion would actually be a monster, similar to the Pershing. But it would only mount the 17 Pounder, where as the Pershing could go up to a T15E1.>>31897063When I say passable, I mean there's no definite date that the Prototype for the T29 was started before VJ. Earliest reference to it was a designation in December 1945.
>>31897122Because I mixed my metaphors because I've had 3 beers.The point I was trying to make is the only difference between him and her is that one of them is operated like a sock puppet.
> Work/Study> Call Someone (Eugene)As you break open the books to study, you decide to give your old friend a call.“Eugene Fluckey.”“It’s Gertrude, Eugene. Hi-ho, hi-ho.”“Oh, Gertrude. What’s up?”“Uh… not much, just wanted to call, I’m hoping I ain’t bothering you or anything.”“No, no, it’s fine. I tell you something, Vernon and Harold are off doing their old antics, I’m just here studying. What about you?”“Same. Great minds think alike huh?”“Of course.” Eugene sounds pretty tired. You must have caught him at the tail end of his midterms. “So, what do you want to talk about, Gertrude?”“Oh, just want to see how you’re doing. You and Ace alright?”“Ace has been pretty mopey since she lost the tournament, but we all know she made a great showing. She’ll get past it. I see you’re still in the tournament, Gertrude. How’s your team looking?”> Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”> Neutral – “We’ve been working on things.”> Polite – “Great.”> Write in
>>31897086I hated the way Trude/Kitten's interactions with Eugene were written, and I also dislike his archetype (bullied average/ugly kid turns into perfect, handsome/beautiful, kind person. Especially when combined with the childhood friend part, felt like a really bad harem anime or romance novel LI), but he never did anything I had an issue with. Audie on the other hand made a really bad impression.
>>31897145We talked to him for help/advice during reelection.
>>31897163> Neutral – “We’ve been working on things.”
>>31897163> Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”Maybe mention some issues like Michelle's - not naming names of course - just for some perspective on them? Would be helpful.
>>31897163>Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”We're getting foreigners to join our cause.We're like the French Foreign Legion without the prison sentences
>>31897163>> Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”"How are you two doing?"
>>31897146I imagine that, despite the impressive war machine that we had turned into by 1945, that TARDEC didn't literally build a tank in four months, inclusive of any R&D periods.Chances are to find an actual date someone would need to track the program via the firm (or, if it was all Army developed, try to find associated personnel records - nearly all WWII records are unsealed to mundane stuff like this is available to those who have a boner for documentation)
>>31897163>> Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”"Did you guys have sex yet?"
>>31897148Ah. Fair enough. I thought I missed some sort of sock related fisting ettiquette.Hoist a beer for me.
>>31897240Trude is a blushing maiden, I can't see her asking that to be honest.
>>31897176Right I forgot about that but he's still a non-character in any meaningful way.
>>31897225You'd be right. I took a look at Hunnicut's references and he got most of the information from the User manuals and such for each tank.However, I have no idea where they've gone.I suppose there would be copies in Archives at the testing grounds, and buried in the Archives of each company that had a hand in manufacturing.
>>31897278Up to what model would we be able to use for the Pershing?Can we use the Super Pershing?
>>31897303....Well mostly without the prison sentences
>>31897305Course you can use the SPershing. It arrived in Europe while the war was still going.
I'd actually prefer a Centurion to a Pershing or even a SuperPershing
>>31897361So the M26E1 is good then?
>>31897361Wait, I remember our old Pershing had a gun which wasn't tankery-legal, was it different from the 90mm we're talking about here?
> Boast – “Best damn team I could ever ask for.”“Best girls I could ever hope for in a team. All of them do their jobs, all of them are nice and do their duties. We’ve got a tight team with room for expansion, Eugene.”“That’s good to hear, Gertrude. You always were the kind of girl to see potential in others. Unless they really pissed you off.”“Yeah, how do you think you went from scrawny nerd to huge in a couple of years?”“The military?”“Besides that.”“Very funny. I’m glad you called though, Gertrude. I honestly miss having you around. Something about not having an incredibly loud and aggressive girl in your life really tends to make things a lot quieter.”“Ah, you should see me now, Eugene. Apparently according to Kitten I’ve done a lot of changing since September. You know, I can cook now!”“You’re fucking with me.”“I’m not!

Hopefully we can definitely catch up on things, Gertrude. Anyway, I oughta go, it’s about lights out and the provosts will grill me for staying up.”“Right, good night, Eugene.”“Night, Gertrude.

>>31897414It was armed with the T54 not the T15E1. Ballistics were identical, the only difference was that the T54 used a shorter fatter casing rather than the long thin one use in the T15E1The reason the T54 wasn't Tankery legal is because there was no date saying when the gun was fitted or had begun to be fitted, only a date indicating when it was completed.Best I can do is give a date it was ordered and the date is was tested. June 1945 and February 1947 respectively.Really it's up to the QM in what is legal and what isn't when there is no definite date.

>>31897305we had a super pershing at one point I wish we had kept it

>>31897545Then we join her in her bed.>>31897628Meant bed... zz
>>31897646We got a kickass head quarters, I'm fine with it. I just hope we can get another one
>>31897665Well, the Michelle part wasn't ALL fun...And anyway, saying we should have fun from now on doesn't preclude having had fun previously.
> Invite someone over (Kitten)> Work/StudyKitten arrives at your door after you ask her to come over. “Hey, Trudy!” She arrives clad in a t-shirt and yoga pants. She walks in, yawning a bit. “So what’s up?”You hold up a textbook, grinning. “I’m studying!”…Kitten looks at you, confused. “Wow. I never thought I’d hear you say that unironically.”“You don’t know a thing about me, Kitten!” You huff. “I happen to like studying, thank you very much.”“Yeah. I only spent the huge majority of my life with you, Trudy. It’s not like we don’t know each other or anything.” You giggle a bit, then return to your studies. “Eh, fine.” She pulls out a DS and starts playing around, lying on top of your back.> Fool around with Kitten> Prepare for bed> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>31897704But we're behind on our studies and Kitten and co already have higher grades then us
>>31897710> Fool around with KittenFuck it, I say ask advice about Michelle. Kitten does know about the ~tragic backstory~ right?
>>31897710>Prepare for bedGoing against the tide
>>31897710>> Fool around with Kitten
>>31897710>> Fool around with Kitten>> Prepare for bed
>>31897727The fact that studying is something we can choose to do is the worst part of the quest, as it's an activity that should be excised entirely in favor of actually interesting things, just like 9 - 5 work (barring interesting colleague banter) or going to the bathroom.
>>31897710> Fool around with Kitten
>>31897710> Fool around with KittenWhat game's she playing at the moment?
>>31897774I like it. Like any good game, there has to be multiple endings. We could throw everything into save the school, but be kicked out at the end of the quest for bad grades. Not an entirely bad end, but not a good end either
>>31897893It would be selfless though. So it's still a pretty good ending.
>>31897915A noble end, no doubt, but I want a happy end. The perfect end is beyond us, though.
I'm only just catching up on the thread now but I believe I found a solution to the issue of the S35, for the time being at least.Pic related is a S35 that was captured by the Germans and operates in Yugoslavia, then captured by Yugo partisans, what they did was cut the turret face out and remove the gun, then fashion an extension from armor pieces from wrecked armored vehicles to elongate the turret, then they stuck in a QF 6pdr they took from a wrecked AEC Mk.II armored car.Schteel, your thoughts on this conversion? It is tankery legal and apparently they made 2 such conversions out of the vehicles they captured and had lying around.We should call Perrine and ask her about it
> Fool around with Kitten“So, Kitten, what game you playing on your DS thingy?”Kitten says, “Chrono Trigger. I’ve had it for ages, and I’ve been meaning to play it. Finally got around to it. It’s actually pretty neat!”You sit up a bit, forcing Kitten off of you. “Aw, that’s nice. You know what else is nice, Kitten?”“What?”“Oh, you know, A TICKLE MONSTER!” You force Kitten down on the bed and start wiggling your fingers on her sides, squeezing the laughter out of her like a Jeff Dunham show.“Ahahahaha! No! Stop! Tr-Trudy!” She squeals, trying to force you off her. Despite her tankery training and all that yoga, she’s still not strong enough to push you off.“Say Uncle!”“Un-Unf- Uncle! Uncle!” she screams. “Lemme go! Uncle!”There’s a knock at the door, silencing the two of you. Well, you’re saved for now, Kitten. You quickly stand up, letting her recover then walk over to the door. You open it up.“… Hi.” Says Michelle. “Yeah, I hope you don’t mind if I sleep with you tonight?”You shake your head, smiling. “No, no. Come in.” You lead her inside, gesturing to Kitten on the bed. “You remember Kitten, right?”Michelle nods. “Hi, Kitten.”Kitten sits up, blushing a little. “Hey, Michelle.”> Fool around with Kitten> Prepare for bed> Talk with someone (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>31897954Perfect end being?
>>31897893The thing is, that makes studying a literal chore. And I know I don't want any chores in my quests or games.
>>31897957Ah...pass on that.
>>31897965> Fool around with Kitten and MichellePerhaps something less...touchy-feely this time. Just gotta make sure Michelle doesn't feel awkward.
>>31897965>Other Play with Michelle
>>31897965>Fool around with Michelle
>>31897984This quest started off like that. Any studying or schoolwork was passed over instantly in favor of action. At some point in time studying actually became a thing and stuck around.
>>31897957Oooh, Nice find anon. the Way is this a good idea?I remember the Slavs doing the same with a Stuart. >>31897995Why not?
>>31898030At least when it's for helping other characters it has a purpose in the narrative, even if it should still get glossed over without needing a vote/update IMO. Voting for just studying on our own must be narrative anathema or something, I'm sure of it.
>>31897727I'd rather be behind on the studies and be sure there will be a school to be expelled from than being an A+ student from nowhere.
>>31897968Total Victory in the tournament, a revival of all the clubs and teams to high end competitive standards, save the school for years to come, and see Fredendall dragged through the mud, broken and defeated. And Kitten being our one true love, forever.Probably some other good stuff that I can't think of.>>31897984To each his own.
>>31897965> Have fun with Kitten and MichelleCheer her up!Also gotta go right before the end, so thanks a ton for running GS!
>>31898047'cuz it's a hack jobbed piece of (slav)shit.
>>31898111I do not see how we can not get that ending

>>31898111Those all seem theoretically achievable anon, why are you giving up on it?
>>31898111Ha, the Sherman is Trude's true love.
>>31898047On one hand I'm thinking, "That looks very safe."On the other hand I'm thinking, "It's better than what we have now, even if it is bodged together." If it's really necessary to up gun the tank to a 6 Pounder (which is still quite weak), go for it.
>>31898136Eh? The curses of being a girl in /tg/
>>31897965>>31897957German can you add this to the shop?
>>31898171>she thinks dyke end is "perfect," end.What is with /tg/ and faggots?
>>31898136I just think they're cute together, and anyone else is less cute and splits them up.>>31898139Because we are Anon, and none of us is as dumb as all of us.That being said, we're doing pretty good from the looks of things.Also, there has been little overt progress on reducing Fredendall to a broken, mewling wreck of a human being. She fills me with unreasonable hate.
>>31898185dude it is a slapdash job let's not get it
>>31898136Yuri end is appropiate if its ic
>>31897957Certainly possible. Would fall under one of Perrine's conversions for sure, that definitely would've made it as part of their line up in the tournament had I found out about it earlier.> Play around with EVERYONE“Come on, Michelle, sit down!” You pat the bed, and Michelle sits down, a bit nervous. “We’re not trying to make you feel awkward or out of place or anything. We’ll make you feel right at home.”Michelle nods. “Cool.”Kitten says, “You ever been tickled before Michelle?”Michelle laughs a bit. “No, why?”“BECAUSE I AM-“ Kitten is suddenly forced down by Michelle and finds herself getting tickled. “NONONO! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN!? HAHAHAHA!”You laugh, deciding to join in Michelle into the slaughter as you tickle around her neck. She shuts her eyes, trying to force her head down against your fingers. “Say Uncle, Kitten!”“Unf!

>>>/k/21053154If anyone wants to learn about the Ferdinand and to a lesser extent the Sturmpanzer
>>31897995we finally find a solution to solving the issue of the S35 not being able to penetrate a wet paper bag and you go "Ah...pass on that."...you're fucking retarded>>31898167>If it's really necessary to up gun the tank to a 6 Pounder (which is still quite weak), go for it.the 6pdr is a hell of a lot better than what it currently has or anything that was ever planned for it and it would be relatively safe considering the extension box is made from scavenged armor plate, its not like it has thick armor to begin with, its got the 6pdr's counterweight on the barrel to help balance the guns weight too so it shouldn't hamper performance, rate of fire would be very similar, accuracy and range and penetration would all be massive improvements and it would be relatively cheap, its just some armor plate cut and welded to size and a 6pdr.
>>31898202Well, I doubt Fredendall will suffer quite as badly as you want, true. That seems like it'd be against the spirit of the quest, really.
>>31898229> Head to sleepMight as well.
>>31898211so your saying that just because it was pieced together rather hastily and cheaply in the war that we'll have the same despite it needing to conform to standards set out by the league?your fucking retarded if you think we shouldnt get the better gun for it when we have legal precedent for it and it will only HELP IMPROVE the tank...
>>31898236It's...but. Man, what?
>>31898211So was the North American Churchill and it worked.It's a better armament. >>31898229> Head to sleepCan we add it to the shop?how much will it be?
>>31898237Agreed. I still want it, but I won't sabotage the sweetness of the quest for personal hate.
>>31898115anon, if we get Perrine to make it, it won't be a hacked together piece of slavshit, its gotta hold up to ITS standards which means it will be perfectly fineit replaces the gun with something they can actually use against enemy armored vehicles for once and it means we don't have to immediately replace the vehicle because its obsolete as fuck
>>31898306That would practically make you a saint here on /tg/, anon.
>>31898236The only reason I can see in not getting is that it may hamper the tanks cross-country performance due to the added mass of the armor and gun at the front of the tank.
>>31898229>Study a team (Pravda)
>>31898335But the 6pdr is STILL obsolete by the time 1944 rolled around.Instead of "totally useless," it's "mostly useless," which is a poor return on investment.Speculative, but I imagine the conversion cost will be somewhere in the mid-teens, meaning that it's 50 to 80% as expensive as just buying an entirely new, more modern, better tank in the first place.
>>31898229>Talk with someone (Michelle)"What happened?"
>>31898229> Head to sleepSufficient Kitten has been administered, permission to shut down granted.Thanks for running!
>>31898357its a very minor addition to its overall weight
>>31898380hey, I agree that a new tank would be vastly better but all these idiots refuse to sell the S35this is just a way to actually make it somewhat competitive and useful once more
> Head to sleepYou hit the lights then cozy up into your sheets. Next to you is Kitten, who cuddles up into your shoulder, purring a bit with a smile on her face. Michelle is on the other side of you, cozying up with you as well.Michelle says, “Hope this ain’t awkward.”“It’s fine,” you say. You ruffle Kitten’s hair a bit. “I’m used to it. You’re always welcome here, Michelle.”Michelle smiles, then sighs. “Good night, Gertrude.”“Good night.”Kitten says, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite.”You shut your eyes, then let yourself drift off to sleep.> END DAY
>>31898420Where the hell are you getting your information from then, m8?
>>31898380We have it for the Churchill and it's still around. So mostly useless is a understatement, and we're not facing an armor of Tiger Tanks and IS-2,a 6pdr gun is perfectly fine with our loadout,
>>31898335I still do not get people saying they can't get kills seeing how they have one of are highest kill counts
>>31898457from the fact that the added extension box is made from thin armor plate and the 6pdr weighs not a lot compared to most tank guns
>>31898453I ain't even mad that they want to keep the S35.I just don't want to be using it in ITL matches.
>>31898454>bed bugsJesus Christ how horrifying.Thankfully they're really rare in my part of the world, all we have in bed are tiny lice that are impossible to detect anyway.
>>31898454Will we be able to get it for the Shop?We can just upgun the Somua right and only need to buy the 6pdr.
>>31898454That's it for tonight's thread. I should be able to return tomorrow at 3 PM EST as usual.Follow at: https://twitter.com/GermanSchteelSee you next time.http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Keep+On+The+Sunny+Side/6MmplI?src=5
>>31898454>“Hope this ain’t awkward.”Someone better not sneak in with a cameraThanks for running Schteel, see you tommorow.
>>31898489>impossible to detect anywayIsn't that kinda worse, though?
>>31898488we kind of have to unless we suddenly come into possession of a bunch more tanks and crewsthey want to keep it and we got outvoted for selling and replacing it, so we have to use itthis conversion is a means to still be able to actually engage opposition with it without constantly scratching their pant
>>31898499Thanks for running. This is the first time I've made it for the entire session. Good Times.Has anyone archived this?
>>31898454D'awwwwww.Thanks for running!
>>31898498it needs some work on it to cut the turret face our and fabricate and install the turret extension, but that shouldn't be too much on top of what a 6pdr would cost
>>31898499Can we upgun it at the Tank Shop german?The 6pdr Souma
>>31898526Schteel himself usually archives it.
>>31898516Naaah, when they're too small to see with the naked eye I just lump them in with bacteria in a 'why worry they're everywhere' kinda way. They don't drink blood or really give a shit about the person, only the fluff, so.
>>31898498>>31898546The S35 with 6 Pounder would be listed as an unusual conversion.That means it would probably have to go through Perrine because as it stands, the unusual conversion has to be replicated to the EXACT degree of which it was built, something that only Perrine really has the capacity to do.If you wanted to do it yourself, you could possibly contact the ITL to send over judges to perhaps oversee the construction process and advise.
>>31898564Ah, okay.I was getting worried for you, bby.
>>31898574cool, so next thread lets call up our favorite heretic and finally start making the S35 useful
>>31898582Awww, it's okay. I'm safe!
>>31898574>>31898610We haven't talked to Perrine in a while...I hope she isn't offended.>>31898643Cool! :3
>>31898610Yea its not like the s35 is one of our highest scoring teams.
>>31898574How would you say it would affect the tank?Will its performance suffer?
>>31898574Could we still do the S40 convert or would it no longer be legal? The S40's performance would be nice to have with the 6lbdr
>>31898863If speed is an issue, we could upgrade the engine.
>>31898942I wish for that too but it wasn't built for the S40
>>31898952I'm not worried about speed.I'm worried about a headon shell instantly knocking out the S35 since nothing is mentioned of armor.
>>31898942the conversion wasn't made on that tank so no, you can't have your cake and eat it to
>>31899001ya like most field jobs like this it was meant more just to get a big gun
>>31899001its salvaged armor plate from wrecked armored vehicles of equivalent thickness to the existing armor of the S35and a headon shell would instantly knock the S35 out as it is without this upgrade...you think it can actually bounce or deflect a shot? its armor is pathetic
>>31899001it should be the same as the S35, besides we made it into a scout tank.Taking shots isn't its purpose. >>31898952We already did that before Chihatan
>>31898574I'm surprised the Stuart didn't go through the same thing
Well I found where some of the Technical Manuals are held for the M26http://research.archives.gov/description/895294Box 1368: 300.7 Technical Manual 9-735 to 300.7 Technical Manual 9-739
>>31899238>http://research.archives.gov/description/895294I love you the way....Now I'm having an inner struggle between a Callenger and a Pershing
>>31899296whynotboth.jpgwe had that back and forth between another panther and a firefly, then got both tankswe be smart about it and be smart about our money and we can get both
>>31899310Thats assuming they ever pop up again.The chances of both tanks appearing is very low and we don't know when we'd see a decent tank in the shop.
>>31899359We can get another Cromwell from William Adams.Maybe buy a Pershing from Telsa team or Ace
>>31899359We can also buy a chassis or corpse of a Pershing from Perrine?
