“So, what's new over here?” You say, trying to ignore just how many empty burger boxes have piled up in front of Miho Nishizumi. You've hit your comfortable limit at two and a milkshake. Han, the lightweight, has just polished off his first. Pussy.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank “Black Jack” and you've been away from the American tanking scene for too long. What American tankers lacked in numbers, they made up for in community- most commanders were on a first-name basis with every other commander. Everyone knew everything and everyone.“Fort Benning released another T29...” He said. “As if we needed another one running around,” he says gruffly, taking a palm full of fries. His arms brush a bit too close to Miho's corner of the table and she eyes him fiercely, pulling her own stack of food a bit closer.“Who's running it?” You ask, eyeing Miho worriedly.“Not a clue... Nobody's claimed it.” He says, dunking a half dozen fries in ketchup.“Private collector?” You ask hopefully, but Han shakes his head. But the military never gives up tanks for museums or collections- you don't get pre-trained tankers from museum exhibits. “Weird.”“Actually... Not the first time this year, either.” He says. “There someone bought up one of their Panthers- the Ausf. G. Then that French M4A3-76 last year. And that Dutch M26...” He says, counting on his fingers. “Bought up and nobody figured out why.”>”What about the scene? Who's new this year?”>”Sounds like someone's getting a team together.”>Stop Miho while she's merely at “overboard.”>Other.
>>38709616>”Sounds like someone's getting a team together.”HAHA FINALLY ANOTHER LIVE GUPQ THREAD

New batch of questions for BlackJack and everyone else. 1. Lee Yu Han, who and where is he, story-wise? Quote, emphasis mine: >Maneuver warfare was a huge part of American One-on-One tanking, where maneuverability and passability was just as important as firepower and armor- In your first tournament, >your tank had actually been knocked out by a Chaffee Light Tank, >simply because he was able to get onto a rise and shoot down onto your engine.Is this the supposed to be Lee, or was Lee the first match of that tournament? 2. Same question, for Joey: Is this the same Panther commander who got knocked out in Arizona by a Sherman with HE to the tracks? Guesses on other Guests and the meeting purpose: Jackson Teague, probably a Jackson TD. Kitty Black’s going to be packing a Cat of some kind, either one of the Germans or a Hellcat. No idea what the Branson’s will bring. As for the purpose, Reader guesses that the Corp guy’s trying to take over the world. That’s what she’d do with that many tanks.Question for thread at large: do you all think Ooarai is more mission-type tactics or order-type tactics?
>>38709946I think Ooarai is more of a mix of both. Adaptability is their playbook after all.
>>38710045Makes sense. Plus, If I remember correctly, Miho only really micromanaged if things were falling apart.
DID SOMEONE SAY GUPQ?
>>38710178Well yeah.But as the crews gained EXP Miho left the micromanaging to each team. That's why we got KILLER RABBITS, SLAYER OF TIGERS.
>>387099461) Han started as a Chaffee commander- While the Chaffee's very maneuverable the 75mm gun on it is relatively anemic- it absolutely requires maneuver to win, so at some point he switched to an M4A3E8, since it didn't lose a lot of maneuverablity but gained a much more potent gun. (especially at mid-to-long ranges.) 2) Yes.Bonus: Jacksons and Hellcats are open-topped vehicals and are therefore unable to be used in tanking- US or Japanese. The average US tank is generally a Sherman (We made like 50,000 of the things.), after that the most common are M5 and M24 light tanks, (Figure 60-70% of vehicals are American.) with the rest being British, German, and Russian designs (in that order of most common to least common.) There are currently three active M26s- Black Jack and two M26A1s (same tank but with the standard 90mm M3 cannon.)Historically, American tanking grew up in an environment where there was no shortage of local tanks, so that's what they used, Shermans, Chaffees. In comparison Japanese senshado needed to import tanks, which means they have a much more diverse cross-section. European tanking is the most diverse, since they had free access to nearly every belligerant's surviving tanks.
>>38710565Didn't the Hellcat get an add-on cover post war? or is that not allowed and we're running a hardline 'no-go, not even mods' on open topped vehicles?
>>38710686They don't allow that scholar.Only war-config tanks are allowed. Post-war upgrades are outlawed.
>>38710686I'm still not quite sure how canon it is since we never had that talk, but Straya is a bit more lax on mods. "Within reason" being the qualifier.
>>38710749Ok, I'm getting it now. So no American TDs showing up unless it's a T28. Wonder if the Panzerjagers like Marders and Nashhorn are allowed with safety/handwavium covers, or if they're verboten given their original open-topped state.
>>38710913Can't do that Scholar, those TD's were open-topped through and through, and as such are not allowed.
>>38711036Not to mention their "armor" was basically proof against small arms and light shrapnel.
>>38711036>>38711053ah, what a shame. Oh well, I'll just go crawling back to my Panzer 765. Nice Russo-Germanic tank.
>>38711108Mind explaining what a Pz 765 is scholar?
>>38711108>Panzer 765A what?
>>38711335>>38711343You take a KV-1, rip out the shit gun and optics, put in a 75mm /L48 gun and sight from the Panzer 4 F2, and bolt on a cupola. also helps if I type the right name, Panzerkampfwagen KV-IB 755(r). One out of three, late night, etc.
>>38711506And another picture, this one with an AT rifle replacing the hull MG. the real kicker: The units most documented with captured and modified Russian tanks were SS units, and they LOVED them.
Oh shit. I've got super ants in the pants because I just found out that GuPQ lives, and I'm super pissed in the fist because I just found out I missed three threads.
>>38711638No, THIS is a penis
>>38711506>>38711564>KV-1s>with F2 optics>and hull-mounted AT rifleHOW DO YOU EVEN
>>38711671Hey, Americans weren't the only one who got creative with their armor during the war. The German Panzer mechanics worked often undersupplied, and yet kept turning tank after tank back into serviceable state and sent them back to the front. Hence why Soviet kill counts on tanks are so high. They might have knocked it out, but the German mechanics got it working again the next week.
>>38711789>Bergetiger summoning Zombie Tanks goes here
>>38711854You're preaching to a Kamfgruppe Lehr Academy Alum. Panzer Elite might not have the best supplies and armor, but we always get the best crews, training, and pussy.
>>38711948Luftwaffe element, myself. Combining Luftwaffe ground forces, Fallschirmjager, a couple of Panthers and a Bergetiger, umf.
>>38710686It was actruly designed and built during the war in time for it to be deployed to Germany, including a full cover that protected the Hellcat from small arms. Was not used because of reasons.It could have been mass produced. It wasnt.
You raise an eyebrow. “Someones trying to put together a team...” You say, knowing. Han stops mid-chew and even Miho looks up from... Actually you don't want to know how many burgers. You really don't.Han looks at you like you're crazy. “A team for what?” He snorts derisively.Miho even nods. “American senshado is all based around duels, isn't it?” Even she's incredulous. “There wouldn't even be another team to fight, unless they went to Europe. They wouldn't have a schoolship, so they couldn't participate in Japan...”“Exactly...” Han says. “Too damn expensive and, even with you running around like a hero tanking ain't popular enough to support an entire team of tanks. Let alone enough teams to do anything competative...”>The T29, Pershing and Panther form an offensive core...>Someone could be funding it...>What, what did you say about me and it being popular?>Other.
>>38711992Tank Buster. Two JagdPanthers, two Hetzers, and a BergeTiger = Hell's highway becomes a tank Graveyard. >>38712180So Hellcats are legal. YES!!
>>38712194>>The T29, Pershing and Panther form an offensive core...>>Someone could be funding it...>>What, what did you say about me and it being popular?
>>38712194>The T29, Pershing and Panther form an offensive core...>Someone could be funding it...>What, what did you say about me and it being popular?>Unless they already have a Schoolship in mind...
>>38712180Sorry, it was not in time for Germany. A study was completed in August 1944 and a supplementary kit of armor (including top cover) was designed and produced that did not adversely effect mobility, but there was no production to refit vehicles in service.Meaning its Sensha-Do legal.A tank with less armor than the Hellcat: The Type 89 used by Duck team.
>>38712194>Someone could be funding it...IT'S A FEMINIST CONSPIRACY, I TELL YAA FEMINIST CONSPIRACY>>38712207>Four TDs and a NecromancerJeebus>>38712180Woah. Didn't know that. Thanks man!
>>38712292The fuck is wrong with me, forgot to include my citation.M18 Hellca Tank Destroyer 1943-97Steven J Zaloga, Osprey Publishing.Page 14, First paragraph. A picture showing the upgrade is on page 15.
>>38712194>>Someone could be funding it...>They wouldn't have a schoolshipClearly, it's TWO or more schoolships kit-bashed together assembling a mixed tank team.Man, that background origin story on the BC Freedom schoolship is really something.
>>38712194>Someone could be funding it...>What, what did you say about me and it being popular?
>>38712194>Someone could be funding it...>unless they went to Europedoes this mean eurotonks is canon?
>>38712325JagdPanthers hold the line, Hetzers hetz any armor that tries to get to the side, and Necro Tiger healing. Only had pop left for 4 PzGrens and 2 half tracks though.
>>38712453Oddly enough I don't use halftracks in the late game. Just heavy infantry and a NEKO-mancer assisted panthergruppe.
>>38711053From what i've writen in my three posts, >>38712180>>38712292>>38712344I have to disagree with you. As for armor, the Type 89 used by duck team has less than the Hellkitty.Redundant post to make sure i've spoken clearly, sorry for clutter.>>38712194>Someone could be funding it...>What, what did you say about me and it being popular?
>>38712513I personally prefer to reinforce infantry in the field rather than retreat them back to base, and the brits were too busy throwing their Cromwells and Churchills at me like infantry in 1914 to deal with me slowly taking back territory.
>>38711564>this one with an AT rifle replacing the hull MG>AT rifle replacing the hull MGOne job, Fritz. ONE FUCKING JOB.
>>38712623I dunno, maybe because I just can't be bothered with keeping an eye out on soft-skinned vehicles when the last part of the offensive is at play.

You shrug. “The 105 is a hell of a haymaker.” You say, taking a sip of your milkshake. It makes that uncomfortable slurping sound as you finish the remainder. “The M3 and the L/70 give it precise long-range fire... Add a few Shermans or T-34s- its not exactly thematically pretty, but its something that'll fight...” You slurp a bit more to punctuate. “As for the cost... Wouldn't be hard for someone with deep pockets.”“But who would they fight?” Miho asks. “US tanking... Sorry.” She pauses to draw her fries away from Han's sneaking hand. “...Just like Han said- even if one person started a team there's nobody else around for them to fight against.”You pause, thinking. “Wait...” You say, looking at Han. “What did you say last? About me being a hero?” A large grin spreads across your face. “Han... Did I get famous over there?”“For like... Half a week.” He says, rolling his eyes. “Don't start inflating that ego of yours just yet- Fox did like a five minute piece on Ooarai vs. Saunders. And then CNN did a piece on your duel against the Tiger II...”>Good enough. Gloat.>Keep calm.>Why isn't Miho famous?>Other.

You blink. “Wait... What about Miho?” You say, glancing over at Oorai's captain. “I mean- she's the leader of the team; I just put holes in things.” You're actually a bit angry about this, surprisingly. You're getting Miho's glory. Hell, even the Tiger II fight was her idea. Sort of. And she helped plan it.“Ain't fair, is it?” Han says. “But you're the American Hero, man. The one over there making the rest of us look like God's Gift to Tanking.” He grins at the idea. “I mean, granted- I am God' Gift to Tanking...”Miho nods. “He's right- you deserve recognition!” She smiles warmly. “Afterall, it wouldn't be at all noteworthy if you weren't an American Boy doing senshado! You stand out and make a good story! I think a lot of schoolships are going to be reconsidering just how feminine Senshado is...”Han laughs at that. “Hell, wouldn't be surprised to see tables set up for all the Japanese schools at the next big meet.” He takes a sip and grins, gesturing grandly. “Explore Japan! Meet exotic girls and blow up their tanks!”>”Like they'd even take you- They want 'good' tankers.”>”Well, Senshado does require aggressive spirit- We've certainly got that.”>Other.

You lean back and grin at Han. “Nah- they're going to need tankers with skill, aggression, fighting spirit!” You grin and wink. “Y'know, stuff you're really bad at!”“Hell, Russells,” Han says, not missing a beat. “If you can do it anybody can. And I mean anybody.” He lets a beat go by. “Seriously- I could train a spider monkey to do your job with that tank.”“Y'know, I really have missed it all.” You say after another beat. “How's the burgers?” You say, turning to Miho.She pauses, mid chew, and stares directly at you. She politely swallows the last bite of her... You actually don't know how many times she's gone back up or for how many burgers at this point. “They are a miracle of the world.” She says, with absolute seriousness. “We cannot stay her if I ever hope to fit in a tank again.”“Russells manages it just fine.” Han points out helpfully. “Despite his doughiness.” He reaches over and pokes you in the side.Okay, maybe you didn't miss it that much.
