You stare across the ten feet between you and Erika, Kuromuromine's Champion and your challenger and she stares right back. Somewhere in the background a judge is outlining the rules of the match, but you barely hear her. All you see, all you hear is right in front of you: your opponent.You are Commander Russells, of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and as you stare across the grassy space you can catch the barest glint of her smug look with in her practiced, noble facade. You're gonna wipe that smug look off her face, today. With the judges command you both take a couple of steps forward and shake before the match.>Shake politely.>Give her some American Iron.>Refuse.>Other.
>>33009074>Shake politely.Civility. Dignity. Then we crush her without mercy.

>>33009308Well, Armor was the evolution of cavalry for the US.
>>33009340Sort of. Horse Cav went straight to light recon roles in Jeeps at the start of WWII.
>>33009405There we go. That's the one.
>>33009340See >>33009378, the roles horse cavalry played got split up between vehicles with 20th century warfare.to go back to songs, the only music I really think of that's actual military that matches Russell is Saunder's theme.>>33009405a wild west gun duel: PERFECT!

Nah.It (The Fury movie) have tanks. Gonna watch it first before saying something bad about it. Well, maybe i have less expectation now.Though the fact that they need WG to cover the Sherman repair after filming quite... disconcerting.

It takes every fiber of will in your body to simply shake Erikas hand and wish her good luck. But the fury in your eyes is reflected in hers. You turn and walk back towards your crew, nodding to them. "Mount up." You say as you walk towards Black Jack. "Let's get this done."The city was largely broken up into three zones- a central downtown district was mostly large office buildings and commercial buildings- towards the the docks you got into an industrial section that had largely been devoted to fishing- a lot of storage and factories. Further inland was a gradient of urban to suburban residential buildings."Alright, so where are we heading, Commander?" Richard askes as the big Ford engine roars to life.>Residential section.>Commercial Section>Industrial.
>>33009906>Industrial.we can hide BJ inside things there.

>>33009906>Residential section.Our relatively short height compared to the KT's towering visage will work to our advantage in spotting first.
>>33009906>[x] Industrial.It's the best place to go and both commanders know it. However, there should still be more than enough space for us to maneuver and hide.
>Industrial.while we drive down, let's keep scanning to see if Erika heads to the same area/tries to ambush us on the way.
... Aaaaaaaaaaand Time! BJ is dead, somebody crack the whip.
>>33011286Perfect, we can resurrect BlackJack whenever we want! One question: You making any sense out of this chicken scratch?
>>33011342Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.
>>33011380nononono, that's cuthulu speak, That I get. I've played Call of Cthulhu. The NXM, Necronomicon Ex Mortis, is written in old Sumerian and Daemonic scripts. I flunked Sumerian and the Vatican denied my application to study their Demonology texts.
>>33011380Why did you call him again? I kicked his ass last week.
"Industrial area... Bring us down along the seawall." You keep the cupola open and let the breeze through- it's still forty-five minutes before the game goes live at 1100. The tall buildings and leftover equipment will give you cover- in addition Black Jack's lower profile will make it easier to move among the various cover.It doesn't take long before Black Jack merges onto the coastal road and then drops down onto inland side of the seawall- The city itself was still the picture of devestation- abandoned cars and boats and litter still covered the streets, slowing your progress as you move around or, in some cases, through them. "Alright... here. Turn left." You look down at the map- this street was a main boulevard which cut straight across the city- an ambush position here would almost cut the city in half for Erika. On the other hand its an open position without any hard cover- the buildings along either side were simply sheet-metal industrial buildings.>Stick with the ambush position.>Move to somewhere with better cover.>Other.
>>33011527>Move to somewhere with better cover.one shot is all it takes, let's make hers fail.
>>33011527>Move to somewhere with better cover.all it needs is for not to see us. we need to keep our eyes open to see where she's at.
>>33011527>Move to somewhere with better cover.
>>33011527>[x] Stick with the ambush position.The King Tiger's turret is located closer to the middle of the tank than the front. We'll see enough of her tank to hit before she'll even have line of sight to us, let alone traversing her hull and turret.
>>33011819That's assuming she comes from in front. from the side or behind, we can't traverse in time.
>>33011819We won't have a great shot at her armour from that angle though. It'll make a clean penetration improbable.Hitting the drive sprocket might work though.
>>33011916Falls into the Abridged stereotype of the main lead being incompetent yet succeeding, but overall not half bad. bonus points for Initial D drift music.

>>33011527Making my one and only post in this thread, since you twits keep making it at midnight and i have work tomorrow...>Other: Turn off the engine, listen for her.
>>33012250Shit, good point.
>>33012250>>33012277still falls under >>33011863. can we even traverse the turret with the engine off?
>>33012296Turret traverse is electric, IIRC, we have batteries, also I *think* we have a secondary/pony motor too.
>>33012349ok, accepted. how fast is the traverse? Example: If Erika drives up behind us, can we turn 180 degrees before she turns 90 degrees?
>>33012434I'd be surprised if we couldn't, I can't find hard numbers for it, though I expect our turret to be able to traverse significantly faster due to the fact that its smaller/lighter/etc.
>>33011527>>Move to somewhere with better cover.Believe me, it's an obvious position. She's a smart girl, she'd guess we were there.
>>33012487I still think that we should play it safe. the more we rely on luck, the more likely BJ's going to slap us in the face with 88mm of humiliation.>>33012538yeah, sitting out in the open really doesn't do any good.
The ambush position is tempting, but it offers almost no protection. Further up the road though, the buildings become newer cement-and-steel construction, harder cover but the further you move from the seawall, the more area is behind you.It's an acceptable trade for the moment. "Alright, see those buildings? You ask, holding the throat-mic against your neck as you crane your head around to check cross streets. "The blue ones with the little windows along the top?""Park there." Richard replies as he puts the tank in gear and starts travelling up the street towards the more reliable cover. The only issue now is detection- urban environments cut line of sight, but if you turn off your own engine and run on the quieter back-up generator you can often hear the sound of an approaching tank echoing down the streets long before you see them. It's a trick that most one-on-one tankers know.You're better Erika doesn't- in a group theres more tanks covering more angles and area in an urban conflict- communication makes the risk of shutting off your engine make a lot less sense.>Turn off the engines and listen.>Keep them on- Erika could ambush at any moment.>Other.
>>33012689>Turn off the engines and listen.
>>33012689>>Turn off the engines and listen.
>>33012689>Turn off the engines and listen.Wait for it... Wait for it...
So I decided to jump back into this after having not followed this quest for a while. I left right around when we made some sort of commitment with Miho.Can I get a basic outline of what we're doing know?
>>33012776Erika was being a complete bitch as usual, so know we're doing a 1v1 match of the Pershing vs King Tiger.
>>33012776>Can I get a basic outline of what we're doing know?About ten, fifteen minutes worth of actual stuff per thread, if any of the last few dozen threads are any indication.
>>33012776Not much.BJ runs slow as mud. That hasn't changed.
>>33012787That's it? Simple enough. Thanks!>>33012818He still play WoT between rounds or has he switched over to Warthunder?
>>33012854He's obsessing over dialog more rather than game nowadays.
>>33012854you've got the time, hit up the archives and get caught up in between BJ posts.
>>33012776I wroted things
>>33013095And he has character art!
>>33013114Oh yeah, couldn't do Rose art because the family didn't piss off until after the thread was dead.
>>33013095I'll have to get to those eventually. I've got a good bit of reading to get through.
>>33013144I was referring to the Rina pics, but you go at your own pace on Rose. I get family interference and priorities.
"Alright, Richard- cut the engines. Keep us on the generator, though." You say- a few seconds later the engines sputter and die- aside from the quiet drone of the little back-up engine. What Erika doesn't realise is that she has a huge disadvantage in an unlikely place.Rubber. The Pershing's tracks were steel with a rubber boot- in an operational sense it made the tracks last longer between needing to be replaced. But in a tactical sense, it meant that you could already hear the Tiger II's naked-steel tracks far in the distance.You lean back against the rim of the cupola and smile.>Just wait- she'll come to you eventually.>We know her direction- let's hunt.>Other.
>>33013499>Just wait- she'll come to you eventually.We can hear exactly what she's doing, let's keep it that way.also, If she loses her cool and starts random shelling, we can hear it and move.
>>33013499>>Just wait- she'll come to you eventually.stay frosty.
>>33013499>Other.We know her direction, if we give it a couple minutes we can get a good feel of her destination. Let's set up an ambush.
>>33013574We're kinda doing that already.
>>33013499>Just wait- she'll come to you eventually.Wait for it.Waaaaiiittt for it.Then BAM!
>>33013607>Camping: its not cheap, its how you not die!
>>33013625In a fight like this, I got no problem with camping.Later, we can make victory smores.
>>33013676We will use Erika's under-powered engine as a campfire.
>>33013724>under-powered enginePershing has no grounds to be smug in that regard either.
>>33013499>Just wait- she'll come to you eventually.Let's just make sure she's not coming up behind us to shoot through the wall at point-blank range.
Do we happen to have any smoke grenades handy? There's some interesting tricks you can play when you can create a smokescreen from your tank.
I was going to write things but then I went out and got donuts
>>33013724I was thinking of her burning shame as a heatsource.
>>33013767Ask BJ, might have to buy those after this.>>33013776what ever helps you write.>>33013778You. you're vindictive. I like you.
>>33013854Then you're getting the wrong donuts.What kind do you have?
>>33013893The fuckable kind?
>>33013854well, might want to get on it then. I still have the last of the three drawfag pics to give you, and I do hope it will be sooner rather than later.>>33013899Ugh. That much glaze makes me queazy. Plain Cake is my road.>>33013904choose your next words carefully, human
>>33013899Well, there's your problem. Doughy bags of sugary goo. All the flavor of brown paper bag soaked in leftover cereal milk.Tim Hortons. By God, Queen and Country.Nothing more inspiring than a Long John in one hand and a Double Double in the other.
>>33013959>a Long John in one handIs... that what you call it, then?
>>33013904Smile like a donut?
>>33013970Yes, Dicks! I'm Talking about Dicks!
>>33013959>AustraliaAnd if you ARE referencing Australia here, >Queensland
>>33014037>QueenslandA literate Queenslander. Never thought I'd see the day.
>>33014037I take it that your area is lacking proper donuts, and you have been forced to scrape the bottom of the snack barrel?How do you lgo on under such hardship?
>>33014058He might be using a text to bogan program.
>>33014063I wouldn't say donuts are really big in AusI usually don't have them often, at least.
>>33014087Get Timbits then. They're smaller than donuts.Don't know why you Austrailians don't like big donuts.
>>33014125What the fuck are Timbits
>>33014125Oh when I said they're not really big I mean Aussies aren't big into them.It's kind of my way of speaking.
>>33014125>Don't know why you Austrailians don't like big donutsBy "not big in Australia", he means "Not a terribly popular thing in Australia".
>>33014179>Aussies aren't big into them.You don't have erections into your donuts?
>>33014179The donuts are reasonable size, not like those mini donuts you get a fairs.>>33014187Do they prefer big donuts then?>>33014159Behold! Pic Related!
>>33014230Oh, you mean Donut Holes? We have those too.
>>33014239You may have donut holes, sad leftovers of the donut forging process, but you lack the perfected, deliberate glory of the Timbit!Bow and Tremble before their spherical, sweet perfection!
>>33014239Took the text right out of my reply field. Also, this mean your ready to post yet?
>>33014187maybe because Jakarta hogs all donuts before they can reach Aussie.
>>33014230I don't think the thing you are talking about is a thing here...We have Krispy Kreme that sells donuts, then we have Donut King that sells donuts, and Wendy's. THen you can just get cinnamon donuts at your local, uh, I forget the name, but the place where you can get milkshakes, hot dogs, coffee and lollies.
>>33014257Those Fuckers!!Donut theiving bastards!!Quick, tell the US there's oil there!That'll teach them to steal Australia's donuts!
>>33014286There IS oil in Indonesia, and the US already gets most of it
>>33014277Best we can do is Dunkin' Donuts
>>33014277>THen you can just get cinnamon donuts at your local, uh, I forget the name, but the place where you can get milkshakes, hot dogs, coffee and lollies.Local Porn shop?Krispy Kreme does not sell donuts. They can't even spell, how can they be expect to make donuts. They probably just mispronounce "do not" and overcharge. Donut King sounds nice.>>33014305It will do.>>33014293Don't disrupt my plans with facts and logic!
>>33014305I'm fine with it.
>>33014321Actually there aren't any Krispy Kreme independent shops, just kiosks at servos and seven-elevens
>>33014286dude, hate to say bad news but>>33014293practically correct. See Freeport on Papua.>>33014305We got Dunkin', Krispy Kreme, and several other big brand donuts here. though Dunkin' is pretty much everywhere.And for lower income, there will always some bakery that make hole on their bread, spread some chocolate rice on its top and sold it as donut.
>>33014335So, they're like horrible corporate barnicles?
>>33014354Sounds better than Krispy Kreme.
>>33014360no, more like they are all part of the same overall corporate conglomerate. heads of the hydra and all that.
>>33014354Those or Mister Donuts here.But J.Co is higher up the preference totem pole for me.I don't think I've seen a Tim Hortons branch anywhere here, so I can't really speak for it.
>>33014382I chose to interpret Krispy Kreme as the other end of the Hydra!
>>33014401hey, you want to go give that hydra a lead enema? Buy some of my Hyperion Weapons. Best guns in the six galaxies.
>>33014360well really the only servos you find krispy kreme at are highway truck stopsservos generally don't sell donuts
>>33014433When I think of cream filled things at truck stops, I do not picture donuts.Now I do, and I shall not eat anything cream filled at a truck stop.
>>33014397There is something about J'co donut texture that intrigue me. Very soft. And very heavy on topping. But some of best donut for me is from a martabak vendor near my home. You can enjoy it without anything, and it still delicious.
>>33014448well a truck stop is just a big servo, isn't it?I feel like I say things and then you don't really get what I mean when I say it, so you apply your own known meanings instead.CULTURE CLASH! SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY
mfw a third of this thread is talking about donuts.
"Now the hard part..." You mutter, relaxing against the edge of hatch. Single-tanking is often two or three hours of patience- camping a single spot or slowly creeping along covered routes- followed by thirty seconds of fury as tanks are ambushed and countered.The skill was knowing when to stay put and when to hunt. And right now it's time to stay put and listen. "So... Anyone seen any good movies?" Patrick says, with his usual sarcasm under the situation. "Want me to put on some music?"You've got a great opportunity here- now that things have stablized between you and Miho...>"So Patrick, how have you managed to stay single?">"So, Roy, you were saying something about Rose's singleness today?">Other.
>>33014466Its a hobby.
>>33014487>"So Patrick, how have you managed to stay single?"If I recall correctly, smackdowns are in order for that pink tuxedo wearing bastard.
>>33014487>"So Patrick, how have you managed to stay single?"It's fine to piss off the radio operator in this kind of match. Not so much the gunner.
>>33014433South Australian ones all do now that OnTheRun has taken over 90% of them and installed mini-supermarkets and Subways in all of them. Pies, pasties, sandwiches, desserts and coffee 24/7.

You smile to yourself- the sound of Erika's Tiger II is still far off West- she's probably combing the Residential areas out there. "So, Patrick..." You start to say."No." Patrick immediately replies. "No. I know exactly what you're trying to do." He accuses. "You stop that! Stop." He scolds. Richard chimes up cheerfully. "Aw, c'mon Patrick- we're all wondering it." He chides, and you can hear him reach over and playfully shove Patrick in the radioman/co-driver's seat."I am a free spirit." He says. "Besides- I've seen what you guys have gotten yourselves into and the trouble its caused. Ain't getting anywhere near that." >"It's not all bad...">"So has anyone made a pass at you, then?">Other.

>>33015339>"So has anyone actually made a pass at you, then?"
"Y'know..." You say conspiratorily. "I bet someone's made a pass at him..." You bite your lip and let the idea take hold with the rest of the crew. It wouldn't take long for a bombshell like that to go off.Richard is the first to jump in. "I wonder... Anzu doesn't seem like the type to go for a pass..." He says. "At least not in a way that Patrick would realise, anyway." You have the funny feeling that Anzu making a pass somehow involved waking up in the morning with a headache and no memory of anything past 9PM the previous night.Roy jumps in. "Momo maybe? Yuzu? Is that how they got him in the pink suit? How very inappropriate- taking advantage of a good Catholic boy like that..." You can practically feel Patricks rising need to claw his way out of the tank. >"...What if it was one of the Freshman girls?">Let it go... The Team's got it from here.>"Rose- got any ideas?">Other.

The ball is officially rolling- now you can relax and get back to listening and scanning up and down the central boulevard. As you begin to tune out the blatent rumormongering and attempts at guessing the Irishman's potential paramour- assuming she even existed- you hear something.Well, really, you don't hear something: The Tiger. "Hold up." You say. "Quiet!" Instantly the crew was down to business- this sort of discussion was par for the course and they knew how to buckle down. You put your binoculars up to your eyes and start checking up the road.You see a glint. A piece of glass? A window? Binoculars! And then a puff of grey smoke. You inhale sharply- but Rose is ahead of you and cuts through the intercom. "Contact foreward!" You suck yourself back into the turret and slam the hatch closed behind you as a high-velocity 88mm shell cuts through the air above your tank and out over the ocean behind you."Contact confirmed! They've fired." Eight major intersections down- you consult your map. "Distance: Eighteen-hundred!" Nearly two-kilometers- the shell probably wouldn't have had the kinetic energy to hurt you even if it did hit but you don't want to find out.
