This is precisely the situation that you prefer to avoid. On one side of you, Miho is confronting the person who cost her everything she had- her tank, her family, her school. On the other- the diminutive bully Katyusha is obviously enjoying herself while she watches her former rival twist in the wind. Under ordinary circumstances, your response would be to do a lot of yelling, sprinkled with some threats of immediate and future physical violence, veiled or unveiled. This might end with throwing the little cretiness across some tables.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing heavy tank “Black Jack” and there are two reasons that won't work. First, is the fact that you're in (mostly) polite company at a semi-formal event. While you're certain that three-quarters of the people in here would, if asked, had seen absolutely nothing if you were to pick Katyusha up and toss her across a few tables, the second reason was standing directly behind her: the hotter, female version of Ivan Drago standing half a head taller than you and looking like she could use one of the said tables as a melee weapon.Yeah, you don't know who's throwing this little shindig, but you're pretty sure a brawl isn't in their plans for the night. Besides, there will be plenty of opportunity to knock them around a bit if you see them during the match.That being said, there's still the matter of Miho barely keeping herself together beside you.>Excuse yourself. And Miho.>Stick up for Miho- she did the right thing in their match.>Go on the offensive. Politely.>Other.
>>41311703>>Go on the offensive. Politely.Iron fist, velvet glove.
>>41311703>Go on the offensive. Politely.>Oh, what a nice set of armor you have there. It would be a shame if their rears were penetrated by ambush shots...ALRIGHT LET'S DO THIS
>>41311703>Go on the offensive. Politely.>Oh, what a nice set of armor you have there. It would be a shame if their rears were penetrated by ambush shots...Steady lads, steady... prepare to hoist the Miho on my signal!
>>41311703>Go on the offensive. Politely.Just like we did with Shiho. Cutting remarks they can't call us on without being rude.
>>41311703>>Stick up for Miho- she did the right thing in their match.It's just a game
>>41311703>>Go on the offensive. Politely.
This thread needs more GuP girls in vintage combat uniforms.
>>41311703>Go on the offensive. Politely.>Oh, what a nice set of armor you have there. It would be a shame if their rears were penetrated by ambush shots...In an urban area, just like the last bitch who made my girlfriend cry.
>>41311984Will this tide you over until I find some on the 'boorus?
>>41312345I really need to find the pic where Yukari and Erwin are wearing their respective soul-general's uniforms together...
>>41312382Have this while I join you.
>>41312491>Sasuga Montgomery.>For the last time, Caesar, the Brits didn't use the Bis!
I give up. I'll just post a pic of an MLRS battery instead.
>>41312980Same here unfortunately. I can only atone for my shame with the most holy of tanks: the TOG II!
>>41313033>Lewding Darjeeling's team>mfw
>>41313053Fine, have something more traditional.
>>41313118Official art is good. Sometimes.
As much as you'd like to box the little bully's ears and slide her down a row of tables, or perhaps just deposit her on a coat rack. Do they have lockers anywhere around here? Anyway, you can't do any of that stuff, as much as you'd like to defend Miho's honor. You need to have decorum. And restraint. Which is boring.You already know that Saunders is a sore spot. “Y'know, I watched some of the videos from your Saunders match.” You say, before sipping politely from your 7-Up. “If its an consolation, even if Your IS had gotten a lucky shot- that thirty-second reload would've still cost you the match. So really it wasn't their fault you lost.” Katyusha is almost growling. “I told you- they had the numbers to...”You turn to Miho. “I mean, surely it was just a bad plan to begin with, leaving an asset like that underprotected.” You smile and wink at her. “I mean, its not like it was your flag-tank or anything.” From the look on Katyusha's face, you hit home hard.“Oh.” You say, politely covering your mouth. “Was it?” You make an exaggeratedly painful face. “Ouch.”>Let Miho weigh in on her failure.>Press the attack.>Our work here is done.>Other.
>>41313279>Let Miho weigh in on her failure.
>>41313279>Our work here is done.Take our boss-lady and bounce. Katyusha wants to escalate, we'll give her what for.
>>41313279>>Our work here is done.
>>41313279>Our work here is done.There are two sides to a defeat, tovarisch, but it is not xopoшo to dwell on them.
>>41313279>Our work is done hereStrike and fade.Add a "It was a pleasure to meet you all", and meander over to some of the American tankers we know.
>>41313279>Our work here is done.Leave on a high note. See who else is here.
>>41313818>Rear armor penetrated! We've got engine damage!>She's leaking, Sarge!
>>41313818Speaking of Nishizumi hand checks: https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1819359?tags=nishizumi_maho
>>41313279>>Our work here is done.Shoot and fade is proper tankery, and pressing the attack has left us open to counter assaults before.
So you really are running weekly!
>>41313279>Our work here is done.>Reverse outta there with Miho before this escalates.

>>41314475ONCE THE PANZER ARMOR IS MASS-PRODUCED
Rounds complete, you look over at Miho, trying to read what to do. “Miho, wanna bounce?” You say casually. “Gotta introduce you to the old fashion American buffet!” You stick an arm around her, before cocking a head over your shoulder. “Pleasure to meet you, Cas.” You say with a nod.After a few steps, Miho finally exhales. “Katyusha wants you head on a platter, you know that right?” She says, looking at you like you're crazy.“She's welcome to come try for it.” You say, suddenly grimly entertained by the thought. “Just needs to decide how many tanks she wants to give up for it.”Miho stops suddenly. “Russells. You're not invincible. Black Jack isn't a supertank.” She puts a hand on your shoulder. “Kay underestimated you- she thought a single tank could ambush and take you out... That's exactly what we needed- what we don't need is Katyusha over-estimating you. We can't have taking you out become a necessity for her.”>”I can handle it. Black Jack can handle it.”>”Casamir wants a fight with me too bad to let that happen.”>”Seems a bit late for that realization...”>Other.
>>41315033>”Seems a bit late for that realization...”
>>41315033>Other."In that case I guess we'll have to get her to play that hand on our terms, right?"
>>41315033>”I can handle it. Black Jack can handle it.”Right?
>>41315033>>”Casamir wants a fight with me too bad to let that happen.”Let 'em come. We've got shells to spare, don't we?
>>41315033>>”Casamir wants a fight with me too bad to let that happen.”>>”Seems a bit late for that realization...”
>>41315033>OtherAs long as we're not the flag, we become a valuable decoy. The more she wants us, the more she'll throw at us and not at our flag tank or the rest of the team. We can use that to our advantage.
>>41315033Seconding this: >>41315171Duel with Red Vanya, AND a T-44. What Could be better? Oh right, hoisting the Miho.
>>41315202airplane rides?>>41315171this guy has it.
>>41315033>>Other.Wait, you mean we can get her to divert valuable tanks from other necessary tasks to a merry goose chase?Why is this bad again?
>>41315250>Airplane rides? Beating Katuyusha at her 'Nonna and I are taller than you' schtick by putting Miho on our shoulders. Ergo, hoisting the Miho
>>41315297it was a SW89 reference.>>41315312got it.
>>41315366Sadly, Laika is not around to bully Katyusha.
>>41315366>SW89. Alas, one more thing on the internet I have yet to read.
>>41315443Well, you'll be able to soon, it's drawing to a close.
Man I can't wait for November
At least we'll be that slightly more confident in our odds, if our Team Guts ends up with the flag role against Pravda.
Talking about I Go, anyone see those new japanese ht from WoT?
>>41316086Is that bataan? That guy looks like he's wearing a Philippine Scouts uniform.
>>41316112>Japanese>Heavy tankWargaming what are you doing
>>41316112Yeah. They're getting a Tiger I. Go figure. And it got added before any of the actual tanks Japan had planned or built. >>41316150Supposedly Japan ordered one in 1943 to be shipped by submarine for them to study, but the sub never made it.
>>41316116It's from an old hacienda owned by a prominent political family turned into a resort. The guy's probably a re-enactor.Rather impressive that it's still kept around though. Shame that the same couldn't be said for any other WW2 vintage tanks.
>>41316192>Japanese tiger>It's a (P)hahahaha>sub never made itI bet it was an Army submarine.
>>41316192Not the export tiger, the I-O series and two paper tanks for tier 9 an 10.Kinda cool i say.
>>41316150>there will never be a game with sprite work as lovingly crafted as Metal Slug's ever again
>>41316239>reverse google image wields Mabatang, Abucay>ABUCAYNo wonder they got it.
>>41316254nah, it's an H.
>>41316291Well at least the fans are working on that. Somewhat.Pic related.
>>41316310Dammit, the turret threw me off.
>>41316254More like the tank never made it onto the sub. Basically around the time they were supposed to send it out, two things happened. First, Germany basically lost control of the Atlantic Ocean, making long-range submarine trips far more dangerous.Second, just as they were going to send it anyway, D-Day happened and, basically, Germany bought the tank back from Japan in order to use it to defend the Western Front.
>>41316515>Bought back.HAHAHAHA! Oh, I needed that.
>>41316515>Bought backI can't evenWatHitler just... wat
>>41315033>”Seems a bit late for that realization...”>Other"Everybody is gonna be gunning for Oorai in the tourney now, Black Jack will be targeted whether we like it or not."
You lead Miho towards the buffet. “So maybe that works to our advantage?” You say, grabbing a plate and handing it off to her before grabbing your own. “I mean, as long I'm not the flag tank...” You say, starting to load up.“Black Jack is too valuable to use as a distraction...” She says, following your lead. “I'm not about to squander the only tank we have that's capable of knocking out a KV or Tiger to draw a few tanks off the rest of the team. As long as you're still moving- still shooting, our team can win.” She pauses to consider.She's right. But she's also cautious. “Listen- I've fought alone before. Sure, maybe it was always one-versus-one, but I'm not talking about some blaze of glory. Trust me- if I ask Black Jack to do something, he'll come through. He always has when it counted.” You instinctively want to reach out and pat the side of the old Pershing, but you realize that he's half a world away. How long has it been since you were this far away from Black Jack, anyway? “Katyusha wants to come for me? Good. We know its coming and I'll be ready to give her a fight she won't believe.” You shrug. “Besides, Kasamir's going to make it personal...”“Kasamir?” She says.“Seems I'm not the only foreigner fighting now- Katyusha went and got her own pet Belorussian...” You grin. “I've got a real-life rival!”>Just like the movies!>”He'll want a straight fight with me- I can tell.”>Other.
>>41316925>”He'll want a straight fight with me- I can tell.”

>>41316925>”He'll want a straight fight with me- I can tell.”So, any chance our illustrious host shows up yet to 'discuss tanks' with us?
>>41316925>Just like the movies!Still, pasta first then worry about the borscht.>“I've got a real-life rival!”But what about Erika?
>>41317023HAREM OR RIOT

>>41316925>>Just like the movies!Do we get an 80's style montage where we pull our tank with our teeth and climb up a mountain to a WICKED RADICAL keytar solo?
>>41317212Hey man, I ain't dissing your taste in garupans. But Russells already faced Erika 1v1 and she'd be hungry for payback in the future.

>>41318183Wait, isn't it snowing there right now?
“Hey! Just like your Japanese cartoons!” You say, grinning. “He's going to want a shot at me- I could see in his eyes he's got something to prove.” You shrug. “Granted, I think we all do. But he's going to want a piece of me and I don't think he's gonna let Katyusha get in the way of that... One way or another.”Miho finishes loading her plate and you walk towards a table. “Alright, let's assume he's just like you- If you were to go against Erika in an actual match, would you give her a 'fair fight'?” Miho looks at you expectantly. “Two tanks that are on mostly even footing. Both of your crews are experienced- Are you going to tell me you'd risk the match 'getting a shot' at her by yourself?” You look down at your plate. That was one of the nice things about fighting solo- you could afford to make things personal sometimes. You could afford to put it all on the line to go tanko-a-tanko against another crew. There was even a term for it- the OK Corral. Almost every shooting ground had a spot that just seemed to be designated for it. Level ground with good line of sight along on direction, no easy soft cover for ambushes...>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”>”We've all got something to prove- if he wants a fair fight I'll oblige him.”>Other.
>>41318363>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”PRAGMATISM HURR
>>41318363>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”
>>41318363>>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”Hahahaha. Wait, you actually wanted a fair fight? Let me laugh harder. HAHAHAHA! Combat doesn't work that way, but never interrupt the enemy while he's making a mistake after all.
>>41318363>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”Besides, anything is a fair fight one-on-one. Especially ambushes
>>41318363>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”Kasamir maybe a nice guy but he has experience in team battles so he's going to take every advantage he can not a straight head to head slug match.
>>41318331Straya in July? Definitely should be--most of the Strayans I've met abroad were met summering in Europe to escape the winter weather.>>41318363>>”We've all got something to prove- if he wants a fair fight I'll oblige him.”WITNESS ME!
>>41318363>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”There are actions worth attempting despite chances of it jeopardizing the outcome of a match. Sadly, this just isn't one of them.
>>41318437>Meanwhile in some doujinshi's room...
>>41318363>>”Hell no, I'd set an ambush and knock him out before he even sees me...”
You think for a while more. “God no. I'd set an ambush- probably bring Hippo and nail him from two sides. Fast and easy.” You say.Miho gives you a look. “What?” You question back. “Hey, I'll take him in a fair fight, but why fight fair when you can win?” Miho raises a single eyebrow. “I'm just saying I'm probably more ruthless than...” You remember that Russians are the kings of combat pragmatism. “Alright, but he's not even a real Russian... I'm probably smarter than him at least. Right?”Miho stands up and pats your head. “Sure you are, Russells. And that's why you're going to avoid fighting fair against him. Because he's going to avoid fighting fair against you.”You sit there and stare dumbly at your food. “Hey- if we're both fighting unfairly, that still means we're having a fair fight!”
>>41319197>“Hey- if we're both fighting unfairly, that still means we're having a fair fight!”That's a fair as war gets. See you Next Time BJ!
