Part two for the evening- I wasn't sure we'd be able to finish without it, haha!Part one here, while it lasts:>>39773405++[x] Climb away! The fandance is fast, but it can't climb like the Wyvern, and the height will help if we want to catch that other plane!With as much effort as you spend thinking about walking, you open your throttles wide. Instantly the big jets behind you respond, howling like banshees. The Fandance gamely attempts to follow in a ballistic zoom climb- but this is where you hold the advantages. While it's got more powerful engines, it's also notably heavier, relying on older materials for a lot of it's structure and skin. The both of you climb like rockets on escape trajectories, before you feel, more than see, the fandance behind you start to stall out. To her credit, the girl in the cockpit doesn't try to hold the climb- she knows, now, no doubt, that she was sucked into a vertical fight that she couldn't win. She rolls around, diving away. You cut your throttles, instantly stalling, and start a tailsilde, following behind her, now close on her tail. You que up a pair of ASRAAMs and fire them, hoping they're fast enough to hit while she's still in the dive. She jinks them, pumping chaff and flare into the sky behind her. “You can't beat papa.” Lilya says over the net- you notice, now, that both she and Stasya have dealt with their opponents and are arrowing in on your duel- and once they join, the fight's over. “No one can. Give up Anya.” 1/2
“I will not!” The girl- Anya?- Cries over the radio. “He has done something to you! Lilya, have you forgotten us? Have you forgotten family?” “We were never family.” Stasya says. “Papa showed us what family means.” “H-he- he's lying! He tricked you!” Anya shouts. “You two are very naughty! You know what happens to naughty girls! They go to see the colonel!” In response, a pair of railgun slugs from the girls rip through the air- one's a miss, the other passes close enough you see skin panels tear free of the fandance. “Y-you shot at me.....”The girls dive in, more like the Valkyries painted on their helmets now than the quiet little girls they are on the ground. They're all over Anya- twisting, weaving, with tracers and missiles slashing through the air at the fandance. “Frank, those flankers just entered missile range.” Merlin calls. “Twelve targets, and there's additional targets out there, but they're holding.”“Holding?” “Yeah. I can't figure it out, there's forty plus bandits at eighty miles out, about heading zero seven five.”“Weird.” you say. “Eighty miles? That puts them over Smolensk?” “Yeah. There's a pair of dreadnoughts there, too.” 2/3
>>39779655>Y-you shot at me.....>Not even my own father shot me!>www.youtube.com/watch?v=58pNa3o6F60
A pair of dreads and forty fighters? Sirens start going off in your mind- what are they waiting for? “What's the status of the furball behind us?” “Just about over-” Merlin says. “Not that many soviet aircraft left and-” “Warhound, I'm detaching Rose and Lightning to assist.” Ice calls, interrupting Merlin. “We're done here, anything they've got left is either bugging out or doing forced landings on controled airstrips.” “Frank, we're going to lose that solo bandit if we wait much longer.” Merlin says.  See if the girls have it here, move to engage that solo plane- something about it seems off.  Engage those flankers- they can't have that many of those to spare, killing these will really hurt them.  Stay in it here! No sense starting something you can't finish.

>>39779655>“Eighty miles? That puts them over Smolensk?”When did we push to Vityebsk? Last I checked, we had only just won Warsaw.
>>39779886You missed the Minsk push
>>39779886Belorussian already invaded mate.
>>39779902Oh, okay. Thanks for that. I was here for it, but I had forgotten.
>>39779803or something with a god damn NUKE!
>>39779932I don't think the Soviets are crazy enough to use anti alium weaponry in a conventional war with NATO forces, even if they're loosing it. I hope.
>>39779932FUCK! I didn't think of that! That makes it even MORE important to shoot the damn thing outta the sky!
>>39779971NopeThis is the setup for REX TREMENDAE MAJESTATIS
>>39779982oh yes shoot the thing ARMED WITH A FUCKING NUKE!
>>39779971Of course not.So they deploy huge payload conventionals.Like burst missiles
>>39780002if the nuke it self hasn't been armed it safe to shoot at if it has . . .FUCK.
>>39780002You do realise that shooting a nuke is an excellent way to ensure it does not detonate right? Or do you have no idea how they work?
>>39780002You obviously don't know how nukes work.Yes. Shoot the damn nuke.
>>39780007What if that strange solo contact is a Unmaned drone or some spotter plane...fuck, its Nimbus.
>>39780055shiiit flying carrier mk2!
>>39780033If it has been armed its just as safe to shoot.Seriously, you crack the case of the core and the nuke is no longer a nuke, just a anticlimactic detonator with some very low yield radioactive material thats unable to achieve fission.
>>39780002It's actually very hard to set a nuke off by accident - most (competently-designed) nukes are build in such a way that you have to be VERY sure you want it to go off as a nuke, so the arming sequence is hella long, AND the internal charges have to go off in the right way. On the other hand, if you change your mind, it's EASY to disarm the damn thing.As for shooting it, sure there'll be an explosion, but it'll probably be pathetic when compared to a single missile (has no idea if this particular comparison is true).
>>39779678> Stay in it here! No sense starting something you can't finish.
>>39779982>>39780002Nah, maybe its a spotter drone.
>>39780081>most (competently-designed) nukesUnfortunately, we're dealing with Russian hardware that's not an AK-47.
>>39780097Could be a teleport device.
>>39780105As in, it's really, really hard to get a nuke to actually detonate. It requires near perfect timing, down to the length of the wires making a difference for most useful types of nukes.
>>39780105Generally Russian equipments are 'working as intended' if very unrefined and crude.
>>39780105Russian's who had access to martian tech for years.
>>39780097If it's a drone maybe they will fly it straight at NATO's flyers and fire a burst missile at the drone.
>>39780105It's still one hell of stretch to assume that shooting it will start the complex process of actually initiating sub atomic fission. At absolute worst, it'll cause a fizzle, but Fronk would be well outside the range of that.
>>39780155What is your fetish for burst missiles, goddamn.
>>39780105russian nukes are surprisingly sturdy with very good failsafes, for example when a rogue kgb faction tried to hijack a russian boomer with planted spetznaz in the 60's and launch missiles on hawaii when they tried to get the missiles to launch without the proper procedure, the failsafes detonated the payload without a fission reaction, which scuttled the sub with all hands
>>39780200name of incident/submarine
>>39780200I'd like to read more about that. Any good links about it?Sounds like a Clancy novel almost
[x] See if the girls have it here, move to engage that solo plane- something about it seems off. “Girls, do you have this under control?” “Yes, papa.” Stasya says, almost as soon as you ask. “She thinks we're still as bad as we were when we had to fly against her. We've learned since then.” For her part, the Soviet, Anya, doesn't say anything- though you're pretty sure bu this point she's too busy trying to survive. You twist the wyvern around, arrowing in on the single bandit. In response, it starts a dive, scrambling for the deck and the relative saftey of the terrain. “Frank! The flankers!” Merlin calls as a warning, while your defensive suite starts screaming in your ear- “Missiles! Missiles in the air!” You don't have time for another furball- not if you want to catch that mystery aircraft. At the same time, though, it's pretty clear these flankers don't plan to just let you go.  Use the AMRAAMS you carried out- it won't get all of them, but it'll get enough to keep them off you  Mix it up- you'll just have to let that plane go See if the twins can't get up here and give you a hand.
>>39780238K-129>>39780255IIRC Clancy wrote about the ship that was used to attempt to dredge the boat up, the Glomar Explorer, he embellished a few things of course but the underlying truths while not as spectacular as one would hope are still terrifying.
>>39780238>>39780255It was the submarine that they tried to pull up with the Glomar Explorer under Project Azorian. K-129. Honestly, what that anon says is just one of many theories, but it's certainly more interesting than "shoddy maintenance caused a flash-fire in one of the tubes"

[x] Use the AMRAAMS you carried out- it won't get all of them, but it'll get enough to keep them off you Unwilling to just let the mystery plane go- Merlin's having trouble even getting it's type- you switch to weapon group two- AMRAAMS. The flankers have only just started drifting apart to engage you- their own medium range missiles still seeking a lock. You ripple fire all the AMRAMMS as soon as you achieve lock- with Merlin guiding in the back, the painfully bright blue stars of their rocket motors quickly shrink into the distance. You track them on radar- and watch the flankers scatter as the missiles appear on their screens. Two of them manage to escape the missiles locked onto them, while the other six aren't so fortunate. The remaining half the formation seem to panic, scattering wildly. Still, the risk that any of them will attempt to re-engage is too great to risk without a little help. “Hey, Shark, little help up here?” You call to the twins. “All over it.” Alyssa assures you. “Flankers?” “Six of them, careful.” “Should have left eight.” She says, pulling forward from her spot on your wing and breaking to engage the flankers. The unknown bandit ahead of you has gotten low, but you suspect it's at it's maximum level speed- it's not accelerating anymore. While it's mach 1.8 or so would be plenty fast in most scenarios, against the wyvern, that's practically a crawl. “It's big, whatever it is.” Merlin says. “RCS is a lot bigger than a fighter.” “So it's a bomber?” You ask. “Has to be. Maybe a one sixty.” She responds. “We're only going to get one shot at them at this heading before they cross into Soviet airspace, Frank!”  Use the tesla cannon, make damn sure it doesn't survive.  Use missiles, maybe enough will survive the crash so we can find out what it was carrying.  Use guns, with any luck they'll crash-land somewhere and the allies can recover the bomber

Nukes are NOT nitroglycerin.

>>39781458The NATO reporting name is Blackjack, the Rooskies call it White Swan.
>>39781405Our tesla cannon probably looks weird to sensors after its ammo is expended too
>>39781491Yes, well Merlin specifically said the emissions were from the unidentified craft and ONLY the unidentified craft
>>39781491you'd think we'd hear a lot more over comms if someone who wasn't us was firing off tesla cannons all over the place
... guys. What if it's charging up a DEW? I mean Boeing experimented with airborne lasers...
>>39781641And what? It hits the furball, gets one good shot in, maybe hits a few planes, then gets destroyed by the survivors?
>>39781641Bruh, we HAVE essentially a laser/lightning cannon.
>>39781657MISSION IS SUCCESS TOVARISHDREADNAUGHTS BE MOVING IN NOW
If that Blackjack is piloted by Gato I swear to the Moriya Gods...
>>39781684NYET TOVARISCH, WE ARE KILL ((((((
>>39781664>>39781657Ours still requires target tracking. Imagine being able to just instantly crisp an enemy ace.It's not about hitting a number of planes, it's about hitting the RIGHT planes.
[x] Use guns, with any luck they'll crash-land somewhere and the allies can recover the bomber You select guns and move in. The pilots of the bomber, for their part, seem to know their best defense- the flankers- are out of the picture, and it's just you and them, now. They make some defensive efforts, but don't deviate from their flight path beyond that. “Merlin, where's this guy headed?” You ask, trying to get inside the 500 meter range for guns- at this rate it won't take long, but you'll be damn close to the Soviet border when you do get the shot. “I don't know.” She says. “There's nothing along this line on this side of the border, and only Krasny or Gusino on the other side.” “What the hell are they doing here?” You ask yourself, closing to inside a kilometer. One final defensive break from the pilots of the blackjack prove to be exactly what you need- your 25mm cannons vomit a deluge of shells into the aft quarter of the blackjack, which skids away, black smoke belching from the engine pod on that side. “Damnit!” you hiss when it regains controlled flight- skidding around to get another shot, which sends shells across the top of it's stabilizer, wrecking it. “Frank! Watch the border!” Merlin warns, her voice overriding your thoughts for a second. The blackjack- apparently piloted by a damn master- limps back into controlled flight, turning back onto it's heading. You've got one more shot at them to bring them down, unless you want to follow them across the border.  Break off, they're done for anyway.  Can't let it get away, fire the cannon.  I've got enough missiles to do the job It's already crippled, just finish it with the gun
>>39781684Good thing we saved on those Tesla Cannon Rounds.

Go for missiles
>>39781827I wonder if we can phone in someone to snipe it.Like Wittmann or Sushi
>>39781854Yeah, and the order will finally go through in May 2015, story year.
>>39781873Inb4 Sushi is now working for Artemis
>>39781854>>39781894I miss tonkwitch
>>39781997The reason nobody has heard from Jake is that he is MIA, assumed KIA.
>>39782020What the fuck are you smoking?
>>39781894I hope they have good lagcomp algorithms, 'cause Mouse's ping is in the 10^10 ms
>>39782020Sadly, suicide by reckless secret mission is a common fate of those who have to put up with Wittmann's bullshit.
>>39782046Well, Jager could use a little heavy muscle you know...
>>39782059Wittman probably ordered him to fall back, and he proved her right about being a glory hound and didn't.
>>39782070More like Wittman tried to lick him in the brig for seeing the enemy.Because that would be bad and he could have been hurt and we can't have people getting hurt in wartime now can we.
>>39782059>>39782070It's sad because i can offer Mouse several best Germany tonk witches - or mecha musume - to balance Whitmann bullshjt. Like Knispel
>>39782116Welp, Knispel got some "armor augmentations" for the Tiger, huh...
>>39782070Wittmann is never right.
>>39782101>lick him in the brig for seeing the enemyYes, yes she did.
>>39782151Stick. You know what I mean.

So ghost's been out for a while, so why aren't y'all posting lewds?
>>39782294Ok, now corrupting that phrasing would just be trying too hard to bother with, even though you did set it up pretty well.
[x] I've got enough missiles to do the jobEven with it crippled, you decide you're too close to the border to risk another gun attack. The ASRAAMS, however, have enough range to reach out and hit the bomber- you launch your remaining two and break away, keeping your sensor overlay up to watch them go. Both of the missiles find their mark- your LADAR gear is accurate enough to show you both missiles hit and tear pieces from the bomber, the first impacting the remaining turbines and the second blowing the tail completely off. You turn away just as Merlin starts screaming a warning- a flash of her panic, pure and overwhelming, shooting through your mind. The world behind you goes white. Your sensor package- never designed to deal with that, but designed to momentarily blank out so your own Tesla cannon wouldn't blind you- polarizes out, blacking everything except non-visual spectrum sensors, then blanking infrared and the ultraviolet packages. You feel, more than see, the fireball behind you. The shockwave throws debris up in front of you as you slam your throttles wide open into max emergency power and begin to outrun it- if you'd have been a bit closer, you'd be dead. The adrenaline jolting through your system slowly fades away. “How close.” You croak out, wishing for water. “I-I don't know, Frank. Close.” Merlin says. “Radio is fried, sensors are out. We're lucky to still have control.”You nod- even the VDNI feels fuzzy- Merlin’s still there, of course, but she's hazy, like viewing a friend through heavy fog. “Where was everyone else?” You ask- it's your turn to shoot panic through the link. 1/2
>>39782333Anon-tan licked the spit from her lip as she paused between labored breaths, her chest heaving ever-so-slightly up and down as she tried to calm down. That last lewdfic was so... Exhilarating. So much so that she couldn't help but, ahem, attend to her needs. The electric thrill that shot up from her groin and into her core was pure bliss, unfiltered ecstasy.Finally she managed to assume a modicum of normalcy, and sat down correctly in her chair. A lewd smirk was reflected in the computer screen as she typed her next sentence:"So ghost's been out for a while, so why aren't y'all posting lewds?"Does this please you?
>>39782333Last time I posted lewds I got temped ban so not risking it right now
“Clear. We were closest.” Merlin says, confidently. “God... Frank, everything's gone. Radar's out, radio's out. ECM is gone. We’re a mess.”“Can we make Torun?” “Yeah.” She says. “We've got the fuel, and the critical systems are ok. Frank- are you ok?” “I'm fine.” You say, lying. That was a nuke. The crazy bastards were trying to use a nuclear weapon against you- against other people! And for all your skill, all your talent- if you'd have been even a few hundred meters closer, you'd have never made it out. How you did is anyone's guess. “ We can probably put down at any of the forward theater airfields.” Merlin says, bringing up a map- thank the gods the nav computers survived. “The airport in Minsk is open for emergency use we can put down there.” She says, her calm starting to take over. It's all so can-do for her, especially when you're there. “But Minsk is small and will probably be handling a lot of jets right now.” She warns. “There's also Minsk south, but that was damaged pretty badly, the runway there is PSP and they probably won't have much space either.” “Anything else?” You ask. “Not much. There's a couple bases in Eastern Poland, but it's not much farther from there to Torun.” She says.  We'll put down at Minsk then.  We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.
>>39782392> We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.

>>39782392 We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Let AWACs and ice know our destination, So they can track us. just in case the wyvern fails somewhat on the way home.

>>39782392> We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Is they giving us a bait, and we just bite it?Goddmanit.
>>39782417Bro, Merlin just said radio is fried to kingdom come.
>>39782392>[x] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Well here's hoping we just didn't start a nuclear war. >_<
If that plane was heading back to Russian lines and we had a good idea it was carrying a nuke, why did we shoot it down.Also what happened to the dreadnoughts?
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then. We need to set down ASAP, we have no comms with ANYONE
>>39782378>>39782392Sweet lord almighty!I cant even decide what to choose- I can't believe they'd go so far as to use nukes. That means this war is kicking off into a whole new era of BAD TIMES.
>>39782392 We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Radios out so fly prominently through friendly airspace and be very visible.at least fly by some friendly craft for them to spot us and pass the word that we're still active.
>>39782392>[x] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.No reason to worry anyone, land at Torun. Fuckers actually did it.
>>39782392>[X] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.It's where the rest of the squadron is going, and any pilot worth his salt is able to fly by vision, so we should make it fine if all critical systems are operational.
>>39782392>Head to Torun (as long as the rest of the squad can)>>39782423 Honestly don't think that was for us considering all the trouble we went through.
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then.Without radios or sensors or ECM we're a massive liability, we need to land now.>>39782417For fucks sake you retard, how many times was it said in the update that WE CAN'T CONTACT ANYONE?
>>39782445>>39782441>>39782437THE GHOSTS OF WALDREICH ARE CALLING~
>>39782392>>39782443Do it. Our emblems very visible so word will spread quickly.
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then.>>39782423you just took the bait, we don't want to head back to torun without sensors or ECM or radios, we'd just be unprotected alone and easy meat, so don't be stupid and take the bait
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then.
>>39782392>[x] We'll put down at Minsk then.
Head for minsk
>>39782414tac nukes don't work like that anon>>39782496thats a fail vote if I've ever seen one, why don't you delete that and try again and this time reply to ghosts post
>>39782392>[x] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Our waifus and our squadron mates are freaking the fuck out right now.
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then.I think we should probably put down ASAP and get our radio fixed. It'll also help people know the whole "WE'RE NOT FUCKING VAPORIZED" bit
>>39782392[x] We'll put down at Minsk then.The faster we get to someplace that hopefully has comms, the faster we can ascertain if our daughters and fiances are okay.
>>39782392> We'll put down at Minsk then.We have no comms, no ECM, no sensors, we're crippled.And you fucking geniuses want to fly the long trip back to Torun unprotected and blind?
>>39782392>[x] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine.Welp that happen.
>>39782378>>39781170OH GOD I DO NOT LIKE BEING RIGHT>>39782392>> We'll put down at Minsk then.also seconding "flash our insignia at someone"
>>39782561I doubt that the enemy have head hunter teams out right now.
This choice better not fuck us over because it smells like a trap.The Blackjack was heading to RUSSIAN airspace, with an armed nuke, all out on its lonesome, while the dreadnought groups stand off...
>>39782574A WORLD WITHOUT WITCHES SOON
>>39782576Seriously? You're completely forgetting the headhunter teams we spotted right before this mess? You're forgetting the mass group of planes hanging out with the dreads? You're forgetting all that?Fuck me you're blind as a doorknob.We already know there are headhunters out here, with a lot of backup.
>>39782561> no comms>“But Minsk is small and will probably be handling a lot of jets right now.”>no comms to yell at the control towers that we're coming inThat's my issue. They're going to have a lot of jets landing there. There's going to be less traffic at Torun to at least cause less problems with us having no comms.
>>39782561The choices are Minsk which is closer but with good probability it will full and packed, or Torun which is far farther with our sensors crippled, but has guaranteed space for us.Both are kinda shitty honestly.
>>39782576>I doubt that the enemy have head hunter teams out right now.The Russians still have 2 dreadnoughts and 40 fighters, just waiting 80 miles away, possibly far enough that they didn't get hit by the EMP.
>>39782576Go and reread the previous thread and this one anon, then punch yourself in the face for being retarded.>>39782595Torun is also a long way away, and we'd be cut off completely from support on our own, while there is a lot of shit out there gunning for us. I could care less about ATC problems compared to that.
God damn the Russians must be real fucking desperate for pulling that shit or pure fuckin' insane. >>39782578It turned around after we started going for it and to our knowledge we're the only ones effected by them denoting the bomb. So unless Frank is worth literally going nuclear over, we stopped whatever their plan was.
>>39782597Don't forget those Fandances like everyone else magically did. Fucking goldfish the lot of you.
FUCK THIS SHITWE'RE CRASHING THIS PLANE WITH NO SURVIVORS
>>39782601Considering what just happen. I have my doubts this battle is continuing on anymore.
>>39782595What I imagine will happen is a witch coming alongside our canopy to relay instructions.Also holy fuck I just got home oh jesus christ oh god oh fuck
>>39782392>[X] We'll put down at Minsk then.So Merlin could sense the nuke... or was there something about the nuke that was different?
>>39782591The idea is based on the blast fucking with the enemy planes as well as ours. If they can't use their radios efficiently then how are they to co-ordinate their battle. And also, we have self-darkening visors and we nearly got blinded, Maybe a few Russian pilots got blinded too and crashed. Or at the very least the enemy would be startled that a FUCKING NUKE went off.
>>39782614Pilots are in the air with hot loads, with shitloads of enemies in front of them, with no idea what's going on.You can bet your ass this fight is continuing.
I would like to thank all of the anons who did not vote to finish that bomber off with guns because holy shit
>>39782618>there something about the nuke that was differentIt was a FLEIJA warhead?
>>39782607I thought between the twins and our daughters, the Fandances were busy.
>>39782601>I could care less about ATC problems compared to that.You know, lot of aircraft disaster start from miscommunication between aircraft and ATC....
>>39782620>Or at the very least the enemy would be startledWell considering the 40+ planes and couple dreadnoughts they have standing off 80 miles away I would say no, they would not be startled by their own nuke going off just like they planned.
>>39782616http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation_light_signalsAlso >mfw all these people voting to push on with no consideration for Merlin's chances of surviving an ejection
>>39782638Yeah, when you're dealing with A320's and 747-800's shit gets bad, but dealing with planes that can land 4 abreast on a runway whilst also landing head on at each other, not so much an issue.
>>39782631Hey no problem anon, some of us have to use our heads every once in awhile ya know?
>>39782618Remember that nukes are relegated to anti-martian defense duties, so Merlin's probably never been around nuclear material in her life
>>39782607>Don't forget those Fandances like everyone else magically didActually, the daughters shot down the Fandances.Did you forget that they engaged the 3 Fandances while we tangled with Anya's Fandance?Post #39777775>Stasya, for her part, doesn't answer, instead busying herself, along with Lilya, with a pair of the other Fandances. >>39779606>now, that both she and Stasya have dealt with their opponents and are arrowing in on your duel-
>>39782646> surviving an ejectionDammit fapangel, I read that as something else
>>39782646IF MERLIN HAS TO EJECT SHE'S DEAD ANYWAY.
So guys, how is NATO feeling about this out of nowhere nuke?
once radio is up we transmit on all channels mad cackling" AHAHAHAHAHAHA I HAVE SUPERPOWERS NOW BITCHES! I AM IMMUNE TO NUKES!"
>>39782670>Dammit fapangel, I read that as something elseFunny, because when I saw >>39782627>Pilots are in the air with hot loadsI thought much the same thing>>39782672Those awful g-forces on that fragile little body...
>>39782675They will warm up every Nuclear silo?And unlocking the padlock in British case?
>>39782611No, bad bane.>>39782614With the russian planes loitering around like >>39782597 said it would seem that the enemy planned for this.>>39782618She said the aircraft was different sensor wise. Maybe she could see radiation? I don't know.>>39782576>>39782620Anon, stop digging a hole.>>39782646> everything's gone. We don't have the aviation lights, nuke killed them.>>39782675Immediate ceasefire and peace talks. just like AC0
>>39782675Call the UN.Call the Unaligned Nations.Call the Undersea Martian Colonies.Turn all superweapons against Russia.
>>39782675im pretty sure they ended peace talks are over
>>39782689>Those awful g-forces on that fragile little body...Are perfectly survivable as long as they drop below 600 knots.Yes they did tests with children scale dummies, and watermelons...
>>39782697>>39782696YURI CALLING THE NATO NUKE BASES SOON>www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnd0qg4I_MM>>39782689Great minds think alike boss, huehue
>>39782684That's dumb and so are you
>>39782697>We don't have the aviation lights, nuke killed them.If the EMP was enough to short your nav lights, than the plane would be uncontrollable. Unless the Wyvren has backup cables hooked directly to the flight stick.Somehow, I doubt.
>>39782675Very crossed. Honestly more interested in what the UN is gonna say.
>>39782697>We don't have the aviation lightsYeah we do, can't kill those circuits without physically cutting them.They are simple as shit and also hardened so no, the EMP wouldn't have killed out running lights.
>>39782704I'm trying to set up a home-run character kill for Ghost here but you just gotta be THAT GUY>>39782717>more interested in what the UN is gonna say.said nobody ever wwwwwww
>>39782715Well I doubt it was a very strong one since iirc the higher up a nuke detonates the larger the EMP
>>39782696Again, no ICBMs or anything like that>>39782715Not to mention our fancy swinging wings
>>39782607>Don't forget those Fandances like everyone else magically did. Fucking goldfish the lot of you.Apparently, you're a goldfish too, since you forgot that Stasya and Lilya already shot those Fandances down before going after Anya, and the remaining two others would have been taken care of by the Twins.
>>39782715But Merlin herself said the Radar, radio, and ECM is out.
>>39782737All of which are not our running lights you fucking retard. They are infinitly more complicated and sensitive systems as opposed to a positive current running to a LED.Our running lights would not be knocked out by that.Fucks sake, when we did nuke tests in the 50's with armor the only reason the running lights were not on when the tanks were recovered was they ran out of fuel and the engines cut out.
>>39782737>RadarAka not the lights>radioalso not the lights>ECMStill not the lights. For fuck's sake even our brain jack is still functioning, if a bit fuzzily
>>39782704If ANYONE is forced to eject from a fighter plane, chances are that the plane is already FUBAR. Also falling apart. While ordanance is flying about.Those G-forces would be the last thing on Merlin's mind. Sup Fronk, does Death sound like James Earl Jones.
>>39782729Seems he took your bait and didn't take your bait at the same time, boss.>Schrodinger's bait.gif>>39782737That's exactly the point. Nav lights aren't part of that setup bro.
>>39782729>said nobody ever wwwwwwwAnd that's why I said it, very interested.>>39782737Didn't know any of that was nav lights.
>>39782737Eh, seems that simple light is durable enough.
>>39782715Are we going to have another bad decision that almost gets a witch killed because we hesitated on the ejection handles?
>>39782737You're an idiot, stop posting before you spread your cancer.
>>39782638>hurr durr what are transpondersOh thats right, its that thing that's still working...
"My name is Josef Stalin supreme leader of the Soviet union. Earlier today our great union was fired upon with weapons meant only to counter the great Martian threat. This frank Bishop fired a nuclear weapon onto the soil on off the motherland."Cue footage of the wyvern flying away from the nuclear blast."in light of these transgressions of the treaty prohibiting the usage of nuclear weapons I hereby put the megalith facility under the control of the Soviet union. All UN soldiers must surrender to Soviet forces on pain of death."
>>39782773It's too late because this thread is cancer because of anons like you
>>39782790>Cackling Belkan Grey Men.gif
>>39782737>But Merlin herself said the Radar, radio, and ECM is out.You realize that those components have a few things in common, right? I.e. sensitivity. Radios also require antennas (in old fighters that was often a wire strung from the rear of the cockpit to the tail,) i.e. a long conductor in which an electromagnetic field will generate current - lots of current - maybe enough current to blow out the system.Nav lights... not so much. Because all a nav light is, is a bulb - a very bright, heay-duty bulb with a thick filament. It's like the lightbulbs in your kitchen, basically; there are no delicate components in it to fry. EMP is not like a lightning bolt; it's more like throwing an electromagnet into your room. It'll fuck up your computer, but not the light fixtures. Any EMP which was strong enough to literally blow your lightbulbs off the plane would be strong enough to burn out the electronic controls system, hardening or no, and both Frank and Merlin would be hanging under a 'chute right about now or Merlin would be getting Goose'd
>>39782790Where would that footage come from? Because there is nothing nearby that is capable of recording it.Good job going full retard retard.
>>39782790"Mr. Stalin, where in the treaty does it say that if you are nuked in a war you started that you get to take over a powerful UN controlled facility with power enough to level multiple important cities?"
>>39782797>Merlin would be getting Goose'd
>>39782790>megalithUhh Putin has that locked down bro, 0/10
>>39782797>and both Frank and Merlin would be hanging under a 'chute right about nowIf the system even deploys after being hit with the pulse
>>39782771When did we nearly kill a witch for not ejecting? The closest thing that comes to mind is tanana. And then it was us who nearly died, not a witch.
>>39782790im sure we can call Putin and have him find evidence proving franks innocence
>>39782797Don't forget transponders and TCAS systems and all those other electronic systems that are EMP proof to the point where in order to be fried by an EMP the EMP cooks the plane, which ain't possible on this planet with this tech.
>>39782812Oi halley, i thought you were hiding in a bunker right now??
>>39782814It's entirely mechanical anon, ejection systems are reliable as fuck and your stupid as shit.
>>39782825And the transponder can be set to code 7600 to indicate radio failure to the tower~
>>39782831He still is, the bunker has an internet connection.
>>39782835In a normal one I wouldnt doubt it, but with the coffin interface and the neural hookup it throws doubts at me
>>39782831He was. Then Goast found him. There were no survivors.
>>39782841There's also an entire language of emergency codes and responses based on flying a certain way like tilting your wings and such.
>>39782835You sound super duper upset. Have a cute picture of cute planes to calm you down.
>>39782818wont he be basically signing his own death warrant and invite stalin to descent upon him with his loyal armies?
>>39782850>but with the coffin interface and the neural hookup it throws doubts at meGood job remembering how it was detailed how those are invalid concerns that were designed around with our VDNI system, the cable pops out, the canopy blows with explosive bolts (which are also reliable as fuck, with redundancies to hell and back) and the chair goes up and away.
>>39782871I thought Stalin was mostly a figurehead. Possibly in a Golden Throne?
>>39782871then after the war.
>>39782864Si he stuck his dick in a exhaust port?
>>39782877THE CHAIRMAN PROTECTS THE PROLETARIAT
>>39782864Holy shit. So this is what will happen if Fronk chose the Wyvern route.In before Tomcat-chan shrapnel tries to kill Fronk for dallying with that thieving cat.
>>39782877Anyway pf, young whennnn
>>39782864This brings up some very odd questions about why a floatplane had reproductive organs...and how that man discovered them
>>39782883God fucking knows, anon. God fucking knows.
Well we went from the Fronkbowl being decided to Russia dropping the bomb in a few short threads. What does everyone think will happen next?
>>39782897I'm glad Frank did not go as far.
>>39782918>What does everyone think will happen next?>>39782920>LUBE SKYFUCKER
>>39782918VENUSIANSASAKIM FUCKIN DOWINSOMEONE DROPPING AXIS
>>39782918Stalin takes to the field personally
>>39782918The martians that were hiding behind the moon will make themselves known, along with Hitler who had formed a pact with them to create a secret nazi moon base
>>39782946>along with Hitler who had formed a pact with them to create a secret nazi moon baseAnd Frank will defeat them with the power of MAHJONG! ...oh wait, wrong title.
[x] We'll head to Torun. We'll be fine. “We'll head for Torun.” You say, turning the fighter onto the correct heading for home. “We'll be fine.” “I'll try to get some of the systems to reboot.” Merlin says. “But the damage is pretty bad.” The airspace is a mess- as you pass by Minsk, you can see all the aircraft trying to land, practically lining up on approach. Of course, with radios out, you can't contact them- or anyone else- but you're glad to see that there's still plenty of people left up here. Still, the trip back is nerve-wracking. Merlin never really does get anything but the short range sensors to reboot- the radar is probably physically fired, though your LADAR comes back up after about ten minutes. Datalink is down, of course, and without it, your comprehensive picture of the airspace. The entire way back your shoulderblades itch, expecting a missile or a dreadnaught maser beam. When Torun finally crawls into sight, you can't see any other aircraft around it, though that doesn't mean much. You line up almost by memory, for once glad when your wheels kiss pavement. You don't taxi all the way into the hangar, instead stopping on the apron- where Wendy stands, looking at your fighter. Merlin goes through an abbreviated shutdown checklist, while Wendy walks over and helps with the nose ladder. Finally, you unplug from VDNI, suddenly noticing the world's a lot more.. dull, for some reason, though it seems less fuzzy around the edges. “Sir Bishop.” Wendy greets you with a hug, one you return wearily. “We weren't sure-” “Close, but not quite.” You say with a tired smile. “Does everyone know I'm down yet?” She nods, helping Merlin down from the fighter. “I notified them myself.” She says, pointing to the hangar phone. “You are to go straight to the house, and if you argue with me, I am to make sure you go straight there by any means at my disposal.” She says the last with a grin 1/3
>>39782918Frankbowl decided, Surprise Russian/Nuke dropping.Think their related?
>>39782918>What does everyone think will happen next?Mars goes Full Principality of Zeon.
You laugh. “Fair enough. Any word on how bad it was?” She shakes her head. “No, but that wasn't the only weapon they used. According to reports, their entire western border- almost every major road or rail line got... well.” She says, uncomfortable. “Except the one you shot down.” “That wasn't meant for me?” You ask. She looks at you like maybe you've been flying too long. “We don't think so. Commander Kazinski thinks yours was meant for the four lane road and the railway going into Smolensk. We've no way of knowing, of course.” “How is everyone?” You ask, taking off your helmet and shaking your head to try to dislodge some of the sweat. “We're all well.” She says. “No major injuries, certainly none from the.... “ She pauses. “Well. Your daughters are down and well.” You nod. “Are they ok after meeting... what was her name? Anya?” Wendy hesitates. “You should talk to them.” She says, after a bit. “But for now, they're sleeping. Commander Kazinski is in with them.” 2/3
>>39782961Best scene in Gundam.
>>39782848No, Goast found him and he's stealing wireless access.
You nod. “Good. I'm... I'm going to go shower, ok?” She nods. “I'm going to go shower too,” Merlin says, motioning for you to give her a hug. She kisses you on the cheek when you do. “Thanks Frank.”Surprised by that- what was she thanking you for?- you head to the showers. You're intercepted by Rachel- who enfolds you in a bone crushing hug of her own. “What did I tell you about scaring us like that?” She asks. “Don-mffff” Your answer is cut off when she kisses you hard, pressing you into a wall. She backs off after a second, blushing. “I- ah.” She says. “Asshat. You scared us.” She says, leaning back into you, her face turned in against your chest. “The girls almost cried. I almost cried.” “Sorry.” You mumble, noting how nice this is. “You owe me.” She says. “You owe all of us. But you owe me.” “Oh?” You ask, leaning in to kiss her again. “Want to start with a shower?” “It's a start.” She says, her voice just barely a whisper in your ear. “But just a start.”
>>39782973They pulled a Belka?
>>39782973>>39782985....Is Russian just pulling Seven Pillars?
>>39782973Scorched earth on fucking steroids, holy shit.
>>39782985Yes sexy shower times.
>>39782814The chute system is mechanical, not technological.>>39782817What about that one russian girl you had in the back seat who if she landed just right on that runway when she broke her leg she could have bled out internally? All because you didn't eject over water?
And, as you may have guessed, that's it for Tonight's thread! hahaha. Not much to say here, so happy 5 may, I didn't get birthday drunk (which is bullshit) but I did get free pizza (Which is cool). Anyway, hope you guys enjoyed the thread, and as usual, we'll run again at the regular time next week! till then gents, cheers!
>>39782985Oh? On! Nice Slider...Nice.
>>39782974What is extra crazy about that colony drop is they don't go anywhere NEAR into full detail of how fucked up earth was from it.Basically, the colony was supposed to hit Jaburo, but it broke up during re entry. THe front end hit Sydney, everything else landed all over the west coast of the americas, with some stuff hitting the atlantic, some stuff througout eastern europe. It killed like 2 billion people alone.
>>39782973>You should talk to themAw, no third Russian pilot to deprogram?
>>39782985AAAAAAAND that's it for tonight?
>>39783002thanks for running boss, was it your birthday? if so happy birthday and may you have many many more
>>39782985>Almost get nuked>sexy times with Sliderworth it>>39782995Russia's cribbing notes from Belka of all places>>39783002>I didn't get birthday drunkYou fucka up big time
>>39783002Thank you Boss.And we almost missed Slider scene. Almost.>>39783008Well, that should go in our to-do list now.
>>39783002HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU MOTHERFUCKERDon't tear Halley's asshole a new one, ya hear? Tear him TWO new ones.IN BED.
>>39782985>Shower lewds came trueYESSSSSSDSSSSSS
>>39783002Great run as always Ghost and Happy birthday!
>>39782973>According to reports, their entire western border- almost every major road or rail line got... well.” She says, uncomfortable. “Except the one you shot down.”
>>39782985So who wants to write the big shower orgy.No Merlin, you will NOT be lewded. Or Goast will do to the writer what he did to Halley.
>>39783022>Well, that should go in our to-do list now.Kind of hard when Stasya and Lilya shot down and most likely killed Anya.
>>39782985Well.Got a lot of work to do, I see.
>>39783002Thanks for the run, Ghost, and happy birthday!
>>39782973>She looks at you like maybe you've been flying too long. “We don't think so. Commander Kazinski thinks yours was meant for the four lane road and the railway going into Smolensk. We've no way of knowing, of course.”I might be starting to shut down, so if I understand this correctly they were expecting Frank to be in this area, so they can launch a possible nuke attack?
>>39783002Wait, it's your birthday?Cheers boss, and happy birthday!
>>39783051No, they want to cut close all possible invasion route on their border, Frank just happen to be there.>>39783045Okay, seems i missed something....
>>39783051No>that wasn't the only weapon they used. According to reports, their entire western border- almost every major road or rail line got... well.” She says, uncomfortable. “Except the one you shot down.” We were just the right man in the wrong place at the right time
>>39782956>Finally, you unplug from VDNI, suddenly noticing the world's a lot more.. dull, for some reason, though it seems less fuzzy around the edges.Wouldn't be surprised if the nuke dulled our nerves due to the VDNI connection.
>>39783051No, this wasn't aimed at frank, they physically sealed the border at all crossing points with nukes to cut themselves off from Europe.
>>39783071That's not how science works anon.
>>39783071Maybe. My gut feeling is that he and Merlin's anxiety/adrenaline were feeding back into eachother, so they were extra wired while still plugged in. When they unplugged, they only had their own to go off of.
>>39783067>>39783068>>39783073So we basically pulled a Remagen Bridge and opened a route into Russia?
>>39783047Any stories today Feelthy?
>>39783082more like THE DRIFTSHE'S CHASING THE RABBIT
>>39783103Not today. I'm hoping to have another chapter of Ogawa done in a week or so.The Ice/Slider/Katya pieces, after that.
>>39783078Yeah, just gonna blame that one on lack of sleep which I think I'll fix now.
If the archive descriptions isn't "Russia drops the bomb!" I'll be disappointed anon.
>>39782973>their entire western border- almost every major road or rail line got... wellHoly sweet fuck, shit just got real on a scale I wasn't prepared for.>>39783002Thanks for running Ghost, please don't skimp on the details of effects of the Soviet's mass nuclear attack next thread.
>>39783088Yep. Completely by accident.
>>39783002>birthday huh. Maybe I'll push Slider la Slider back a week or two and draw you something else instead.
What happened to the dreadnoughts, I knew the Twins were dealing iwth any Fandances or Flankers, or did they and the girls finish them off?Also how do the girls feel about the word Colonel now, or rather what do they think of Holly?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ta2H5Sv1FnE>>39783140>Holy sweet fuck, shit just got real on a scale I wasn't prepared for.Same. It's one thing to joke about pixy and belka but then it actually fucking happens
>>39783002By the way, for your Birthday do you want that Fronk's helmet art or Slider and Frank doing it under shower art for next week?
>>39782956>“You are to go straight to the house, and if you argue with me, I am to make sure you go straight there by any means at my disposal.”Wait, Frank and Merlin were pretty damn close to a nuke going off. Shouldn't they be going through decontamination procedures?>select all the sushiUh, CAPTCHA, sausage isn't sushi.
>>39782958>Comrades! It has just been confirmed, the Butcher has made sexy times with his squadmates!>Which one?!>All of them!>BOMB. EVERYTHING.
>>39783192I'm honestly wondering how less knowledgeable about radiation and its effects people are in SWQ-verse; we've had a lot of experiments and testing and such out here in the real world.Also something something tac nukes not so radiation comrade
>>39783188I'll be honest, I don't really see the appeal for doing it the shower. It looks awkward and you don't get clean.
Still typing up that summary of the dream I had. Turns out intense memorizing puts a lot of stress on the brain, who knew? Feeling a bit frazzled so I'm going to have to stop for now but it will definitely be ready by next week.>>39783126I look forward to your tales of Fronk giving Rachel the sliderwinder.>>39783088>>39783141Are you 100% sure they won't just fly all the planes Fronk wasn't around to shoot down back to base before rearming them to go and hit the one spot they missed?
>>39783210It's 1991 for fucks sake anon, this isn't the 1930's and we're not Marie Curie.
>>39783192I imagine the sealed and armored cockpit of the Wyvern would keep them safe from any radioactive particles spread by the blast, which is the only thing you can really 'decontaminate' from a human body without large quantities of prussian blue.
>>39783223Spoken like a virgin.Showersex is awesome, though you have to be careful you don't slip.
>>39783239as long as they don't run the shower cold.
>>39783182>It's one thing to joke about pixy and belka but then it actually fucking happensThis is the future you chose.
>>39783225Different anon here, a lot of the effects and nature of radiation poisoning from nuclear blasts were totally unknown until the tests in the 50's and 60's. Many of the soldiers who were recruited to observe the bombing tests in that period were woefully underprotected, and subsequently developed major health problems as a result. I've heard stories about some of those men being far too close and dressed in nothing but standard combat fatigues or even short sleeves and pants.
>>39783245They are going to run the shower cold.(Mostly because everyone else who is taking showers somewhere in the house is also using hot water and they'll have to move to a bed sooner rather than later)
>>39783274Yeah, like I said, it's fucking 1991 for fucks sake.
>>39783230Can you be certain the cockpit is still sealed after the blast wave? Also, they may have touched the skin of the Wyvern while they were getting out.>ice creamOne of those was a cupcake. Go to sleep CAPTCHA, you're drunk.
>>397833141991 in a world where massive nuclear weapons stockpiles were much less of a thing. These might have been the first nukes used in war, I can't remember if we nuked the martians or not or if that was ever confirmed
>>39783331>Can you be certain the cockpit is still sealed after the blast wave? Also, they may have touched the skin of the Wyvern while they were getting out.they would have hosed the plane off after landing, for surethey had protocols for this shit
>>39783346None of which were followed:>You don't taxi all the way into the hangar, instead stopping on the apron- where Wendy stands, looking at your fighter.>Merlin goes through an abbreviated shutdown checklist, while Wendy walks over and helps with the nose ladder.I don't see them hosing off the plane, do you?
>>39783346We did. You'll notice that they did no such thing
It is probably not anywhere near as bad as you guys are worried about.
>next time, on 'TW 89
This is how Jake died, Booze Hound caught in a nuclear blast set specifically to kill glory hounds
>>39783551>Hurr durr what is CBRN/NBC protection
>>39783588Even an abrams can't survive a point blank nuke, Jakes glory hounding probably took him right to where one was intended to go off
>>39783611now the story of how Booze Hound got launched thousands of feet into the air to arrive right next to a nuke airburst, that is a story that needs to be told
>>39783531Well I guess that explains what sort of ordinance they're letting Jake handle these days.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rad5SZmVyHU&hd=1
>>39783611no but they can survive a nuke going off 100m away
>>39783634>>39783611>>39783551Wittman plz go
>>39783284Not to mention Ice is probably waiting for a report or something and vice versa on what happened?
>>39784930For the next few hours the only "report" she's gonna get is Slider's screams of ecstasy.
>>39784973She'll only try and be quiet though.
>>39786159but won't succeed, it's going to be a subconscious competition for the girls isn't it? except for Katya, it will be totally conscious for her.
>>39786186haha, The other girl's at spell caster are going to find this very old very quick though again the cold water.
