“Alright...” You say, putting the still-burning smoke-bomb-cake on the pavement. You are keenly aware of a couple dozen teenage girls, staring at you with emotions that seem to range from confusion to annoyance to anger. You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing heavy tank “Black Jack” and, as the sun begins to set off to the port side of School Carrier Anzio, you're pretty sure this isn't one of your finer moments. So you put on a broad, friendly smile. “Well there's your problem...”“Who's she?” Pepperoni says shortly- she's on the annoyance/anger side of the previous scale. You glance at Yukari- evidently she'd thought Anzio had kidnapped you and Miho and had attempted to mount a rescue mission.Now that you think about it, you probably should have expected this. Though, seriously, big points for preparedness and style on her attempt.>Help me, Miho! I cannot into diplomacy!>”This isn't what it looks like!”>Take responsibility.>”Um. Run.”>Other.

>>38204847When I played that campaign, long long ago, I leveled up the radio man, for the Artillery. That might pull it in Voss's favor. But Miho does know how kill Tigers, and has a vet 5 crew on the Panzer IV.
>>38204883I see your point, scholar. Sound argument.Also, I preferred to promote radio and mechanics, myself. Kicked myself over when I found out I had to crawl out of villers-bocage without a tank later...

>>3820611424/27Just remembered the words of Balalaika: "It is a poor commander who can not control their subordinates." All those in favor of infiltrating Pravda?

You look at Yukari, then down at the bomb, then back to Yukari and then at the slowly smoldering group of angry Anzians in front of the two of you. You gulp. “I-...”A great commander knows that he must take responsibility when things go badly, admitting to the fault of his subordinates and putting forth his best efforts to mediate the situation. You, on the other hand, look to Miho, your team captain who meets your eye and notices what is surely a slightly panicky look in it.She gives a barely perceptible shrug in return- but nobody is watching her as their eyes are glued on you and Yukari. She closes her eyes for a moment. “Anchovy I'm so sorry- I didn't realize that Yukari would follow us!”Anchovy turns to look at Miho. “She's one of your teammates?” Miho nods. “Why is my hanger full of orange smoke?” She askes, clearly irate. “And why does she have one of our school uniforms?”>Try to explain.>Nudge Yukari.>Let Miho continue.>Run.>Other.
>>38206443>I will show you every girl who cried because of your douchebaggeryYuri, duh.

>>38206565>throwing Yukari under the busRose told us back when Russells was caught on who to date that if he broke Yukari's heart, Rose would break him. So no, bad idea.

>>38206693Meanwhile we've gotten nothing here in Minnesota all winter.
>>38206764>>38206693Meanwhile in California we've been having 65-75 degree (fahrenheit) in the middle of February. Seriously- I took a nap outside today in a t-shirt and shorts.
>>38206718>JakartaGreeting anon-from-other-side-of-planet. >>38206764And I'm studying Flood irrigation in Premodern World History. Just be glad it's not the Yellow River back in the day. >>38206784That's just Fing perfect. >>38206811Right, forgot, your part of the country's in the midst of a drought that's been going on for almost a decade. Anyway, Questions from the reader at writing center: How long have the BlackJack crew known each other?Is water rationed on the ship or not?How many times a day does the team practice?Why wouldn’t the school have make students have roommates on the school ship, given space limitations? What’s Russells’s parental situation? What time does Ooarai school start?Would a burning building call down some teachers, can we get some adult supervision?
>>38206608I only mentioned it because I dunno if Russells knew in-character where she got the uniform. I suppose we could just mention offhand that she "probably bought it over the internet to blend in and spy on the date" to placate 'Chovy.If you're really worried about throwing Yukari under the bus though, just have one look at the number of ">Nudge Yukari" votes.
>>38206811>>38206784>>38206764>>38206718IT'S THE ZENTRADI MANTHEY'RE HITTING OUR OZONE LAYER WITH AN OZONE DESTRUCTION SYSTEMTHEN WHEN WE'RE ALL SHRIVELED UP THEY'LL TAKE THE PLANET FOR THEMSELVES
>>38206869>Water rationinglol, I should think not, a several mile long aircraft carrier powered by multiple nuclear reactors, if not fusion, I doubt water rationing is a problem with that much energy at hand.
>>38206784If by "nothing" you mean "the warmest winter in fucking forever", then yeah, nothing.
>>38206882Point made. Just being sure we didn't piss of the Goddess of Ballistics. That and I want Yukari to be a nice, responsible young woman. >>38206895IGNORING COMMANDANT! HE'S CLEARLY THE VICTIM OF SOME SORT OF ENEMY NERVE GAS!>>38206912That and I think BJ mentioned they had open-air ponds to collect and filter rainwater, so yeah. Water isn't an issue.
>>38206869>And I'm studying Flood irrigation in Premodern World History. Just be glad it's not the Yellow River back in the dayI'm just glad it's not 2011 again
>>38206460>>Try to explain."I think she thought we were... *cough* captured by the enemy, and tried to rescue us."
>>38207194Reasoning: Its a smoke grenade. A harmless smoke grenade.
>>38206869>What time does Ooarai school start?I would guess that school would be very similar to those on land. 8:30 according to wiki>Why wouldn’t the school have make students have roommates on the school ship, given space limitations?Space limitations yes, but the size of the schoolships are almost unfathomable. I live in a city who's boundries are about the size of Pravda (roughly twice Oorai). Population is 60,000. Most of it appears to be low-rise apartments (under 5 stories). Many are probably Bachelor suites. If they readers are not familiar with Japanese apartments, they are depicted as quite small by North American standards.
>>38206869 Lesse...>How long have the Black Jack crew known each other?Russells knew Patrick first- they've been friends since third grade (This is why they fuck with each other as much as they do.) Roy they've known for a while as well, while Richard joined the crew as the driver. Rose is Roy's fraternal twin sister- so they've known her about as long as Roy, though they weren't really friends until Black Jack.>Is water rationed on the ship or not?Not really- a ship that big can afford a desalinization plant or six.>How many times a day does the team practice?Generally there's a morning practice and an afternoon practice five days a week with occasional weekend practices. >Why wouldn’t the school have make students have roommates on the school ship, given space limitations? Oarai is seven kilometers long by about a kilometer wide, there's enough room on its deck for a medium-size town and a good amount of "undeveloped" forests and hills.>What’s Russells’s parental situation? We'll find out eventually.>What time does Ooarai school start?8:30AM-2:30PM>Would a burning building call down some teachers, can we get some adult supervision?Depends- generally clouds of smoke coming from tank hangers is a relatively common occurence. Though really, I try to maintain the feel of the anime- aside from a few characters (Ami, Shiho, etc.) parents and teachers and such aren't really interacting with the students shenanigans, so I've tried to keep that feel for GuPQ, coincidently that's why there isn't a lot of swearing or sexuality in GuPQ, (in the actual quest, anyway) since that really never occured in the anime and it just feels like it would be out of place in the quest.
okay scholar, maybe you can just link them all in google view or pastebin...

>>38207703ok. sorry for getting carried away. and giving anyone looking at the front page a headache I'll go the pastebin route, and post when the thread is done. But I do want to say this: BlackJack has stuck several puns in under our noses.
>>38207686>>38207568Come on guys, calm down.Here, have a Patton tank with a Single Action Army.
>>38207594Honestly, its kind of nice to read- though you should have your friend join in for a few threads.
>>38207826I'll ask and see if she's interested.
>>38207768Post it after "Next Time...three things!"For anyone who want's to they can read it right there, anyone who doesn't care can skip it.
>>38207865You must convince her.For reasons.
>>38207945I'll do my best.
>>38207865Just warn her about straying from the GuPQ path into the Forest of 4chan...
>>38207975I think that'll be 90% of the talk.
>>38207975>>38208017Just tell her to only click BJ's link on twitter and nothing else.Maybe [update] button and [post a reply] button but other is dangerous.
You nudge Yukari, who looks at you. “Explain...” You say quietly under your breath while Miho's the center of attention. Yukari bites her lip and gets a determined look in her eye. “Um... I-I sort of stole one...” She says quietly. “I'm really sorry- its just that Miho and Russells were on a date...” She looks down and kicks the ground. “I just wanted to make sure it went okay...”The angry and annoyed buzz in the crowd immediately dies down. Yukari's voice trembles and you can see the beginnings of tears in her eyes- the girls of Anzio are held in rapture by the adorably pitiful sight. “I-I'm really sorry!” She says, bowing her head.You swallow back your own emotions, simply at the sincerity of it. “It's alright, kid...” Anchovy says, clearly moved. “I mean... Nobody got hurt...” She says, walking forward to put an arm around the softly sobbing Yukari. “It's okay, really!”Sweet Jesus, you know whats going on and you want to give her a comforting hug yourself!>Disengage cleanly.>Other.
>>38208178>Other.>TACTICAL BACKHUG>OR TACTICAL HEADPAT, WHATEVER
>>38208178>One option>OtherOH BOY IS IT TIME FOR THREESOME ROUTE FLAGS?just joking
>>38208178>Other.Friendly hair ruffle.
>>38208236this, I guess.
>>38208178>Other.Group hug. Or any equivalent to putting Fluffy back at ease.And then we accidentally took 'Chovy back with us.
>>38208178>>38208209THIS. BUT TACTICAL GROUPHUG
Fluffy sure earned their sympathy. Maybe she can take it a bit further?>"When I saw Russells and Miss Nishizumi get taken in, I really thought they'd receive the Italian Mafioso treatment! That's why I did what I did! I'm really very sorry."Maybe Pepperoni would ease off in guilt and Carpaccio would think this akin to a rivetting tale of... romance, maybe? Or loyalty even? Regardless, she'll be sympathetic.
You're moved- you know that Yukari is putting on an act, but as Anchovy leans in to give Miho's loader a reassuring hug, you can't help but do the same. Yukari embraces it- smiling bravely. Absolutely genius. Even Miho looks moved almost to tears, and the rest of the crowd has a look on their face like Yukari is a scolded puppy.“Well...” You say, withdrawing from the group hug. “...I think its time we took Yukari home.” You look down at Anchovy and offer her a handshake.She accepts it with a nod. “I suppose the next time we'll meet is on the battlefield.” She closes an eye and eyeballs you. “Better not think we'll be an easy win...” She smiles defiantly. “We'll give you a dose of reality if you do!”An hour later, Yukari, Miho and yourself are sitting on the ferry back to Oorai. All things considered, you'd managed to get away clean- Yukari wasn't hung as a spy, you weren't chased off the ship by a crowd of angry quasi-Italian and, depending on what Yukari learned, you might've even gotten some information on their team.>Debrief Yukari about their tanks.>”Smoke bomb? Really?”>”How did you pull that off?”>Other.

>>38209261>>38209266>>38209318>>38209274>>38209322Give the girl a chance to edit the video!
>>38209413Ok, Miho and Russells can chat with Best Team while Yukari edits.
>>38209413>>38209438In the meantime, Erwin as a commander of her own Baneblade regiment. Discuss.

>>38209531>>38209541Okay screw that.Erwin in command of her own PRISM TANK regiment. Discuss.
>>38209438>Best TeamYeah, I am curious about the progress they're making with restoring the Tiger P. :^)
>>38209592While I have respect for Leopon>DORIFTO DORIFTO!I think the position of Best Team is taken by someone else.
Good night Blackjack, Anons. I have to be at work in 8 hours, and therefore have to give fucks in 6 hours.I'll catch up when I arise.
>>38209659see yah later, space cowboy.
>>38209611I read that as Dorito...
>>38209589Caesar needs her duel with Pompeii Carpaccio. That's pretty much the only thing in my mind right now. Otherwise, I'm just gonna wait til the terrain info comes in first.>"Carpaccio diem! Seize her tank!">"Caesar, I'm pretty sure you used that expression incorrectly."
>>38209812Oh heck yeah. Tank kata. plan wise, I now realize my earlier plan of an armored convoy has its issues. Let's see what the battlefield is.
“What did you find out about their tanks?” You say, relaxing into the cushy chair- Yukari's been fiddling with her phone while Miho has passed out against the window. Her face is smooshed adorably. “Anything to be worried about?”Yukari nods as she thinks. “Well, we're going to be outnumbered again- They've got at least a dozen tankettes in their hanger, not to mention their self-propelled guns...” She smiles. “Sort of becoming a theme with us- we're always outnumbered.” She shrugs. “Heck, assuming Pravda defeats Viking, we're going to be outnumbered again when we face them...”“If.” You say.“We'll win- we've got you and Miho and everyone else...” She says. “We're going to win this. That being said though...” She opens a picture on her phone and hands it to you. “That 105's going to be a problem.”Sure its a howitzer, but if they get it close enough for an ambush, even Black Jack would have trouble.>”Just going to have to be careful...”>”Well its just one tank...”>”I'm sure Miho's already got a plan...”>Other.
>>38210125>>Other.Seems its time for IN-DEPTH STRATEGY MEETING.
>>38210125>>”Just going to have to be careful...”
>>38210125this: >>38210155Get History Team in on this, ask if they have any books on Italian armor.
>>38210125>Other.>EMERGENCY BOARD MEMBER MEETING
>>38210125>"I'm sure Miho's already got a plan...”And probably a training regime prepped. It might involve us shooting a comparatively heavy round so the others can get a taste of the enemy rate of fire.>>38209863Also, it's because of my tendency to look from the enemy perspective that I don't formulate plans much.For example, if I were Anchovy, I'd use the tankettes to lure Oarai into sandy pit or muddy terrain, then follow it up with the 105 howitzer shot once they're bogged down.I could also try to make a play on forested thickets with the same tankettes, avoid large obstacles and let the vegetation gum up the enemy mechanically, if they decide to pursue aggressively and try to bulldoze everything in front of them.
>>38210216My, kinda iffy, plan was just to A. keep close together so everyone can support each other against the tankette. B. Ignore them in favor of doing a Thunder Run on the P. 40 or the SPG group. The problem is that any armored group is only as fast as its slowest unit, so either the Pershing or the Char B1. Problems: A split would leave the groups vulnerable to the tankette swarm, and I have no idea what to do about any potential Italian Mediums, other than: Load, aim, fucking kill them. As you can guess, I'm looking forward to Miho and History team's planning input.
>>38210335if the tankette still using MG the worst they can do is ramming us on kamikaze run.I recall in OVA even I-Go can stand against these tankettes.
>>38210398You gotta remember tho, Manga, while the tankettes distract the team the big guns can hit them.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPL-1fM7Iss
>>38210398Sorry, that would be too easy. Instead, they have these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solothurn_S-18/1000Semi-auto, 10 round magazine, Swiss-German Bane of treads.
>>38210458now we talking about credible threat.
>You will never see Pravda singing an Irish love song like a Red Army marching song>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CZ74m28I3E
>>38210485Hence why I wanted to get the match over with before the ant swarm takes us apart with little cuts. Also, if knocked over, Anzio's tankette crews will just flip the vehicle back over and keep fighting.
>>38210458Well, not all of them probably. This Anzio only fielded one for the Maginot match afterall.I suppose a couple of logs/tree trunks lashed down will do in a pinch in lieu of skirt armor.
>>38210552Well, OOC, We know Pepperoni had one, and BlackJack wrote the tankettes as using anti-tank rifles. Plural, therefore more than one. Hence, I'm playing it safe and assuming we're facing nothing but Lc/33s.

>>38210641By skirt armor, I meant spaced armor, not applique. Make the bullet deform and tumble before it reaches the hull of the tank, thereby bleeding it of its kinetic energy. Well, enough that it wouldn't reliably pen the hull at least.
>>38210716I think what he's getting at is the Tankettes aren't meant to 'pen the hull' and trigger a white flag, just immobilize you so their Nationalized StuGs or that 105 SPG can get a clean shot at you. How if you wanted to talk track armor, that we could do using your described methods.

While we're waiting for BlackJack, I have a favor to ask of you all. In Fury, the song Tiger Battle is used repeatedly for combat scenes. I know that the chorus in singing German, but what I would like help with, is figuring out/translating the lyrics. So, Anyone here know German and can piece together what's being sung? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMd7jkBbGZU

>>38211554No, he's done this before. He's probably just nodded off.
You lean your head against the corner of the glass and seat- the combination of warmth and coolness is quite comforting. Even from the side its unlikely their tankettes could score a decisive blow against your Pershing, but there's enough of them that if they really wanted to swarm you they could easily try for the thinner armor at the rear of your tank or attack the tracks and leave you a sitting duck for their SPGs.You shrug. “Just going to have to be careful- fight with escorts so I won't be overwhelmed...”Yukari nods. “I'll ask Erwin and Caesar- they know more about Italian panzers than I do...” She says, taking her phone back and going through the pictures again.Miho's already nodded off, and between the massive amount of food you've had today and the general chaos and panic you feel pretty close too. “Sounds like a good idea... We'll have a strategy meeting when we get back from the States...”“That's going to be fun! I'm sure Miho will love to see what other American tankers are like...” Yukari says. “Just don't get shot. Or mugged. Or carjacked.”You laugh a bit. “Its only for three days... Besides- I managed to survive the roving criminal gangs and drug dealers before.” You see a worried look in Yukari's eyes. “Kidding- we'll be fine.”
