TWITTER: twitter.com/planefagARCHIVE: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kant-O-Celle%20QuestAs the pings rapidly increase in frequency, their damning ring echoing off your hull and into the depths, you suppress the urge to scream. They've found you *again.* The damned pulses buzz and tingle as they hit your skin, unpleasant and invasive. He's clearly got your position, so you've got nothing to lose...*ping!* Seven-hundred yards behind you. The steady, relentless sound of his screws chewing the water grow and grow in your ears as the sharp cold pings increase in tempo, nailing down your position in the deeps. You kick your feet faster, resisting the tiny screaming voice deep in your heart that begs you to hit flank speed and turn for all you're worth. To present your broadside to his active sonar would ensure he can't miss, and there's still a chance he'll miss.A small chance, but a chance. You ping again – five-hundred yards. He's more above you than behind you now; you can hear the distinctive purr of a high-power steam turbine through your baffles. He's picking up speed now, but not too much – he doesn't want to deafen himself till the last possible second. The pings are coming so fast now that you can hardly feel anything else but that damned accelerating ringing in your ears like the doppler-shifting scream of incoming ordinance -- wait -- WAIT -Screws accelerating, turbine screaming into high-gear--NOW!
Bubbles boil up behind you as you punch flank speed, heeling hard to port. From directly above you hear the *KAWHAM KAWHAM!* of a Y-gun firing; the sharp reports slapping the water as they hurl depth charges far out abeam of your attacker to create a pattern to catch you. That makes him Nasty Irritating Prick #2 - #1 has *two* of the damned things. You look upwards, unable to see the ashcans sinking towards you, but perfectly capable of imagining them as they sink. You're at six knots now, coming up on seven, and turning far, far too slow.*KRUMPH!* *KRUMP!* *KRUMPH!* The fantail charges begin detonating behind you. Timing it from when you heard the first splash, you know you'll turn clear of them before they reach you, but the side-thrown ones, they will be right on top of you. You brace for the blast, halting your turn and praying that you've managed to thread the narrow needle between his fantail and the throw of the Y-gun-*KWHAM!*A pressure wave slams into your belly, lifting you a few inches and making you rock slightly. Alarm bolts through your system like a cold lightning bolt; it was *damn* close but went off a good fifty feet too deep. The layer overhead must be playing hell with their depth ranging. You turn hard once more to present your bow to the retreating destroyer, giving his sonar the smallest possible target as you drop speed to ahead one-third – as much to husband your strength as to keep the sound down. If you run out of battery before they run out of charges, its all over. The last attack was the closest yet – if the charge had been twenty yards closer, the depth wouldn't have mattered – but you've survived, again. And that's when you hear playmate #1's pings behind you as he finishes his turn and comes towards your location, pinging steadily and inevitably. [ ] We have to go deeper. [ ] That does it. That fucking *does* it. Time to put some blood in the water.

>>41875976CAUGHT RED HANDED POCAHONTAS
>>41875928This is a rather different situation from the Virginia's.With two destroyers running a constant train on Harder's ass, basically his only hope of survival is for somebody else to peel them off of him or for him to get lucky long enough for them to give up. He doesn't have the time or endurance to keep getting lucky. He does have a reputation for fucking back at fuckers.Going deep will just bring us farther away from the layer and make it easier for them to get a depth fix on us, without solving anything.Murder will solve all of our problems if we can pull it off.
>>41875947Don't those cases have like, 4 padlocks?How the fuck did she open it?

>>41876230... Have you taken over Admiral Settle's phone again, Arizona? If so, please return it to him. I am quite certain he is no longer drunk.
>>41876230Oh gee, she's got her own cellphone now.Or computer. Whatever, let's just PANIC
>>41876154Speaking of those subs, just a reminder because I realize I'd forgotten it myself:There are two of them covering our carrier group, not just the one we followed last time

>>41876280Ari figured out how to use SMARTPHONES?Oh. Oh dear.
>[ ] That does it. That fucking *does* it. Time to put some blood in the water.
>>41875947When did HatexHornet become a thing?Or is this another one of those things Service men do to fuck with their fellow service men?
Oh yeah, I'm not sure if this trip is legit but if to everybody who went to bed at a sane hour on wednesday you need to read what happened after the thread. It's amazing.
>>41876283He is adorable and I've outfitted him for space walks, which he greatly enjoys.He also now possesses enough firepower to sink a Qwaar Heavy Cruiser in seconds.>>41876288We are traders. We trade.>>41876312Yes, you are indeed adorable.
>>41876319It seems more hijinks than romantic in any way, shape or form. Partners in crime/stupid shit
>>41876319Neither is a thing, Hornet just needed underwear, and didn't want to buy/requisition her own.
>>41876302Dude, refer to last thread.Seriously, when you guys went to sleep, we had a ball of a time talking with Arizona when the admiral got drunk.
>>41876319Hornet and Hate got drunk on the night we were told about Iowa.Hornets and Indian, and therefore can't hold alcohol.Now shes stealing underwear from Hate because she doesn't have any of her own.
Aw yisss.>>41875947Dat posterior.Bunny radar set for Hornet when?
>>41876230You aren't exempt missy. You are much wider then hornet ever could be at the waterline.>>41876337You wouldn't have any spare dreadnaughts lying around not doing anything would you?
So to recap, we are between two ships with our bow pointed towards the stern of one retreating, and one coming towards us.The BLOOD AND THUNDER course of action would be to surface to periscope depth in the wake of one ship to hide from the rear ship's sonar and fire torpedoes fore and aft to take out both ships. Mk14s can be fired from a depth of up to 180 feet, but take time to rise to the surface.A possible game changer would be acoustic seekers, we still don't know what Harder has loaded in his aft tubes. Hue
>>41876312Good boy.>>41876319When this picture was first posted: >>41876123>>41876337Wait, you were able to outfit a PT corgi with enough firepower to sink a heavy cruiser?I'm worried what you would be able to do with Canadian Geese.
>>41876359>Now shes stealing underwear from Hate because she doesn't have any of her own.It seems like Naka (or really, any of the girls) would be a better person to talk to about this then Hate.
>>41876368>Bunny radar set for Hornet when?Hornet already has a radar though. Willie too.
>>41876378>You aren't exempt missy. You are much wider then hornet ever could be at the waterline.
>>41876368>Must find out which one is a tratior.I easy enough.
>>41876402Hornet doesn't seem to have made many friends with the jap girls, even ignoring the scuffle on the beach.
>>41875841Planefag, I actually had a thought regarding the equipment of the girls, along with modernization, upgrades and so on... In the game and in several doujins I've seen, aren't the fairies responsible for maintainance and R&D, with a small amount of human-sized help?Sure, in your quest with the shifts in size and so on, it makes things more complicated, but given that pilot a couple of threads back who proved the fairies are a little more than just the extensions of their mothership's will, it'd make sense for Settle and co. to look into seeing if they can help out around the base. Sure, it'd mean declassifying them somewhat, but personally, I'd be excited to see it. Just a suggestion.
>>4187640897 foot beam vs 83 foot beam (114 counting the flightdeck)
>>41876407But is it a BUNNY radar?The prosecution rests.
>>41876378Dreadnought technology is only sold to space faring races. We do not keep ships whole. Only the technical specifications.We were honestly quite surprised that Cpl. Hate managed to construct Cloaked Drones to act as surveillance cameras.>>41876389We can do much. But Geeses are far less adorable than corgis.Much less motivation to do so.>>41876408Miss Arizona, your order has been prepared. Standby for transfer.We do thank you for proper payment.
>>41876402>to talk toI think if she's stealing it, she doesn't intend to talk about it or get caught.
>>41876408>shit posting ari
>>4187637897' beam compared to 83', at the waterline at least
>>41876444Seeing a faerie= roll 1d10 san loss
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>41876475
>>41876422Okay, that was low.
>>41876458>Miss Arizona, your order has been prepared.explain.
>>41876488not as low as Arizonas hulk
>>41876430We might want to work on that>>41876460Well that doesn't seem to be working out for her at all.
>>418764441) Fae are extremely unsettling to humans for a number of reasons2) It's unknown what effects there would be to the shipgirl whos crew leave her3) Aside from a singular desu, the fae haven't been able to actually communicate with humans besides that one time there was an incoherent screaming match
>>41876444That would be a decent quest for Settle. He has passed the fae SAN check a couple times though.Now, not making the rest of the base and eventually himself crazy would be the tricky part.
I can't be the only one who's annoyed by all these RP fags.
>>41876464Were you not here when Arizona got a hold of Settle's phone last thread?Shit's hilarious, bro. Even Hate was stumped.
>>41876529i was and its still funny
>>41876523They shift back and forth between annoying and amusing for me. Just learn to ignore them.
>>41876523And I can't be the only one who finds their peanut gallery banter amusing.inb4 shit taste
>>41876529Not stumped, just pissed he couldn't out-shitpost her.
>>41876523Bentus is ignorable, as is the corgi. Most of the obnoxious jap ones gave up a while ago. Hornet is eh. I'm pretty sure Ari is planefag and also hilarious. Naturally Hate and Naka are golden
>There are people in this thread who did not witness Arizona's shitposting shenanigans last thread>There are people in this thread who cannot see the implications it has on this quest>mfw
>>41876523Hate is funny though.
Amusing as Ari's posting is, with every one of her posts being an image I can't help but feel like we'd do best not to encourage her to post TOO much, lest we run out of image limit prematurely.
>>41876523they're all shit
>>41876517>>41876519>>41876475Settle will be the campion against fae racism.
>>41876505The Bentusi Exchange is not in the habit of discussing transactions with other clients.Otherwise, a certain Admiral would be made aware of the transactions made by a certain carrier and a certain battleship.
>>41876444That reminds me, the game now tracks XP for planes, which actually improves their performance. Conversely, the plane(s) may lose some or all of their experience of too many get shot down. Make of that what you will.>>41876517I'd assumed that was because they were speaking (sailor) japanese and Settle just wasn't versed enough to figure it out.
Shokaku when fapangel?
>>41876646As soon as we return to the control room with Admiral Settle.
I've been making too many of these. It's too much fun, and planefag makes it so easy.
>>41876517To be honest, half the personnel on base are crazy enough that a couple more or less points of SAN won't matter in the grand scheme of things.Shipgirls CAN be decommissioned. What about fleet logistics and repair ships? They could be cannibalized (metaphorically) to create small-scale factories for their fairy crews. Official cannon is that if a girl is decommissioned, she can live as a perfectly ordinary human. The fairies certainly seem capable of understanding humans at least, even if they can't communicate very well.>>41876637GOD I wish I could read moonrunes to play the game.
>>41876402how did that saying go?"there's only one thief in the navy, everyone else is just trying to get their panties back"
>>41876681>strike witches e.4
>>41876681Makes me wonder if Shoukaku or Ari raid Settles stuff.
>>41876679>Shipgirls CAN be decommissionedIn the game, we haven't touched on that in-quest yet thankfully
>>41876337Bentus, you can't just outfit a small dog with laser cannons--he's gonna need a shield generator, too, if he wants to be able to soak up damage as good as he dishes out.This was a grossly irresponsible move on your part.
>>41876673That's the best one so far.
Who here thinks the best way for Naka to help Harder fend off Iku is to teach him the cold fish style? Given Harder's a guy, she'll probably hunt down stereotypical male lines from h-anime to recite in the dullest tone possible.
>>41876679you dont need to know moonrunes to know how to play.After a short while, you just understand which button does what.And theres translator/manager programs to help you translate the stuff you need to know. Like pic related.
>>41876679So what exactly did Arizona do last thread.
>>41876679>GOD I wish I could read moonrunes to play the game.Like you have to. There's translated interfaces that work just fine.
>>41876706Shoukaku air raids settles
>>41876725Did some hilarious shitposting.
LOOKIT THESE ADORABLE THINGS
>>41876725Read the thread and discover it for yourself.
>>41876725Tied up Settle and hijacked his phone. Then her and Hate got into a tad of a shitflinging match.A fun time was had by all.
>>41876679Commie has an English patch for KonColle. There's several more UI translations floating around if you Google.
>>41876754Looks like I'm gonna have to dive back into the previous thread.
>>41876751Why have the Yamatos turned in to fairies?
>>41876725You really should read it, but the gist of it is that settle/planefag got progressively more drunk while bantering with Hate about Yamato's main guns and shenanigans thereof, Hate mentioned sending Arizona to take care of him and mentioning offhand that she mostly just talks in images online and then planefag fucking -ran- with it

>>41876679Well, (NPC) Akashi runs the factory with a bunch of construction fairies...
>>41876713What part of "outfitted for space walks" didn't explain that? He has enough shielding to softly bask in the solar winds.And we outfitted him with Ion Cannons. Please get it right.>>41876706One of the transactions made by Miss Shoukaku was Admiral Settle's medical file and a nurse outfit.>>41876780According to your technical specifications, it is indeed so, Miss Arizona.Whether it applies to your current Bound body is debatable.
>>41876802So shes Santa?
>>41876795Shoukaku self-confirmed that she's not too good at computers, if I remember correctly.Naka is already here
>>41876780Arizona, maybe you should stick to using morse for now? We'd really like to keep the image limit...

The Virginia's have tomahawks I their VLS tubes. If Harder can get a call through, Settle can have one out up and lob a couple at the destroyers. Hell, Settle should be able to see the tin cans making their depth charge runs and figure it out for himself. The Virgina's should be well within range and one tomahawk should be more than enough.
>>41877175just go with kancolle viewer
>>41877230Or goes on Yahoo Answers as their top question poster.
>>41877230...damn, that's so fitting that it will be my canon for now on.
>>41877231I still don't know why anyone 'plays' the game. I mean how lonely do you have to be to make so much effort just to play shipgirl pokemon?
>>41877239The SSNs are busy right now, and it would take a half hour for their missiles to arrive.Harder doesn't have that time.
>>41877273Why do people play Football Manager?
I just learned something mildly terrifying. Near the end of the war Iowa BBs were issued with Variable Time (proximity) fuses, they were again issued new model proximity HE shells during the 1980's reactivation. For artillery purposes proximity fuses are used to airburst a round before it hits the ground, forcing the enemy to be under hard cover instead of below ground level in a trench. It's likely that the Iowas used them in fashion during the Gulf War and other conflicts.I can't find any record of them actually doing this, but there exists a data table showing travel times and ranges for a 16" VT shell fired into the air. What I'm saying is that Iowa and her sisters could potentially use their main batteries as flak guns. The mounts are not dual-purpose and can only elevate to +45 degrees instead of the typical +85, but this would still allow them to engage aircraft up to 5km out and 4km in altitude.This would allow the Iowas to lay down some serious FREEDOM all over any enemy planes that must approach to within a certain distance at low altitudes. Torpedo bombers for instance.
>>41877297Not that anon, but curse all football manager games.I can't even get decent contract negotiations when I play as Barcelona.
>>41877297It's a good game where you manage players on a team in an actual sport, and you don't even have to pay money to marry any of them to increase their effectiveness?
>>41877239>tomahawks >lob a couple at the destroyersThe Virginias (and everyone else) only have TLAMs. The TASM has been gone for a decade.
>>41877311Wait, is it any better than the beehive shells the IJN uses?
>>41876883>You still have nothing on Sara Maru or Lady Lex though, they are well... STACKED
>>41877333They've been phased back in in-quest, the admirals mentioned that the Burkers at least had multi-mode tomahawks while they were discussing strategy.It's why the carrier and surface group were options for the missile strike

The propaganda films during the war always lingered on this part – the tense, fearful wait for the depth charges to sink; the blasts buffeting the little model submarine in the tank of water maneuvered by prop-handlers. The long hunt, the never-ending bombardment is what defines the submarine war in the minds of the public – then and now, as your internet roaming discovered. When the escorts crowd in above you, every evasive maneuver seems to be futile and you can't seem to shake the dogs prowling the surface above, the answer is always the same -Run quieter. Go deeper. They are the brave ones – the skippers with nerves of steel, listening to the destroyers making their runs every few minutes for hours and even days on end, plodding along at a safe, silent two knots while their attackers scream in at flank to bombard and bombard and bombard. *They* are the unshakable and fearless, the men who'd dive well below their test-depth, listening to the steel hull creak and groan under ever-increasing strain, knowing every *second* that the boat might slip past her crush depth and implode, killing everyone aboard before they know what hit them. Men like these defined the Silent Service; iron wills and steel nerves. Your peers, your icons – it is by their example that you could, and should escape this lethal trap.
>>41877598Oh, I still prefer Shoukaku. I simply admire the aesthetic.Honestly, while Hate has claimed Arizona seeks Settle's love, I never felt it went beyond filial love.Of course, being Unbound, I might be misreading the situation.
>>41877714I think you just really REALLY want Shoukaku Bentus.No shame.
Thread needs more Shokaku
You stare down into the dark, cold abyss of the Pacific; the breeding ground of the abyssals, the grave of countless thousands. You're a hundred feet past your test depth already – and to survive you might have to dive a hundred more, knowing death could come at any second, and that Na- nobody would know what claimed you, or how. The sound of the second escort's screws are coming in fast as his fellow circles around at flank to line up another run – if you're going to move, you've got to do it now. But when you squeeze your trembling hands tight and try to summon the resolve to take the plunge, all you can hear is the fast, steady beat of the destroyer's pistons overhead as the motherfucker motors in as casual as can please to hammer you again. Your skin flushes with heat as the last thin thread of patience snaps, your eyes turning upwards to the distant glow of the surface. Someone's diving into that abyss today – and it sure as hell won't be you. It's time to send these assholes home.

>>41877344The IJN incendiary shells were basically giant 18" dragon breath rounds with a time delay. The shell bursts into a cone of incendiary tubes and shrapnel from the shell body. It would certainly fuck up your day if you took one to the face, but the guns used to fire them didn't have anywhere near the tracking speed to keep up with modern aircraft. USN pilots considered them to be little more than fireworks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvuWNnKy6t816" VT shells on the other hand...Remember what planefag said about the 14" shell turning the EOD truck vainly trying to contain the blast into yet more shrapnel? Yeah. These are 626 pounds heavier than that.To put that into perspective I've read that the navy occasionally fired a 16" HE shell into Vietnam (just one!) to knock down the jungle and create a landing zone for helicopters. A single shell is enough to knock everything flat in a 100 yard radius and defoliate everything 150 yards beyond that.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALBKFB28E0MYou kick into flank, spreading your hands wide, twenty-five degree incline to climb out of the depths at a noisy nine knots. You come up to one-hundred-thirty feet and level off as NIP #1 breaks the thousand-yard circle, already accelerating, pinging you madly. He's as excited as a yippy dog to find you shallow, too shallow to sidestep depth charges before they reach you. You strain your ears to find his fellow, already behind him and to one side, ready to start his own run to pin you down as his fellow circles for yet another god damned depth-charging. You pop your tube doors early, and ping NIP #1 to nail down his range perfectly – running silent can go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut. Numbers fly through your head as you plot out potential shots, speeds and angles, time and space as the escort barrels in at flank, eager to nail you before you dive again. He needn't worry about that.The pings come faster and faster till NIP #1 is too close above to catch you in his cone – you're already climbing at nine knots when his charges begin splashing in the water. This time you *do* see them, trailing faint bubbles as they sink right at you; one even glancing off your side... and continuing to sink past you, detonating harmlessly below at your prior depth. Your periscope is rising, reaching full extension right as you level the planes at fifty-five feet.

TLAM's can hit an old tin can, the targetings good enough and they don't need to seek independently since we have the drones to feed them real time targeting. And the warhead is big enough to kill at proximity, doesn't need to be skin-to-skin for a soft target. Just an idea, gives Harder a backup if he can't get a shot himself.
>>41877776>NIP #1Oh god, Harder is having flashbacks
“Heeeeeere's HARDER!” you scream into the water as the shark-shaped abyssal hoves into view, plainly visible through the sheets of water shedding from the glass. He's hardly seven-hundred yards distant and already committed to a hard port turn. “Dodge this, motherfucker,” you hiss; shoving your palm out before you. An explosion of compressed air thunders through the water from your hand, and from the end of it emerges a Mark 14, screaming away at 46 knots. Five more follow, thunderous explosions smacking your eardrums with satisfying reports as the water rushes into reoccupy the voids; your fish screaming towards the destroyer's broadside in a tight, lethal spread. You flip on your back and whip your periscope 180 degrees to the rear, the cross-hairs lining up on NIP #2's bow. He's got you dead to rights on active and you're making more noise than a brass band using a buffalo's ballsack as a base drum – which is just the way you want it. He's taking to the side a bit, not quite done with his circle. You watch him for instant eternity, gauging his will, his aggressiveness. “Do it, faggot,” you hiss. “C'MON, PUSSY! I'M RIGHT HERE, COME AND GET ME!” The abyssal hears you, and turns bow-on to barrel in at flank. Eldritch red flames are streaming from his eyes in a thirty-seven knot wind, spray – or saliva – dripping from the awful, toothed maw. A cannon muzzle emerges from its gaping mouth and thunders with purple flame; you see the brief blur of a shell whistle past your periscope and slam into the water just in front of you. He's committed to the attack; intending to ram.
>>41877739>>41877714>He didn't draw Keine's stupid pagoda hatONE JOB. ONE. JOB.

>>41877776>>41877810>Actually going to periscope depth
“Yes,” you hiss. He's at 900 yards and closing fast on your stern, leaving you only four fish to use. Standard procedure is one down the throat, one to each side, one in reserve. But you smell something cagier about this asshole, and so as he passes 800 yards you fire one fish right down the throat. He knows *exactly* where you are and sees the blast and bubbles as your fish screams into the Pacific; prompting him to put the rudder hard over starboard to dodge - - you're already turning hard to starboard as well, swinging your feet to port to increase the angle-off-bow as much as possible. You hold the turn for two horrifyingly-long seconds before ripple-firing your last three fish off to his right. They scream into the water, swimming straight for a hundred-fifteen yards before their gyros take over, turning them hard left to angle at the destroyer who's committed to his turn. You've turned a down-the-throat shot at a narrow, quick-dodging target into a high-angle broadside attack, and now all his turn has done is buy your fish room to arm. The abyssal is turning for all he's worth, his ship leaning slightly as he slams his right screw into reverse, one of your fish is tracking right for his side, a hundred yards from a high-angle oblique impact, just the kind the Mark-14 likes.You grin savagely. “SMILE, YOU SONOFABITCH!” [ ] Switch to Settle.[ ] Switch to the F-18.

>>41877401>that comicSweet mother in heaven, this comic is historically inaccurate.For one thing, MAJOR HENRY TALMAGE ELROD, of VMF-211, flew his F4F Wildcat not off a carrier, but off a landing strip on Wake Island itself. While VMF-211 was transported to Wake via carrier, VMF-211 was stationed forstly at Yuma, then Wake Island.Secondly, he died defending Wake Island from the Japanese. Specifically, he was shot when he was making an ammo run. The implication is that he actually shot the Japanese invaiding the islands, thus proving that every Marine, whether he be a Corpsman or a pilot, is a rifleman first and foremost. (Or Rifledog, if you are so inclined, PT-109).Thirdly, his bombing and sinking of the IJN Kisaragi (who now lives in a pineapple under the sea) was not a last-ditch manuever, but part of a series of coordinated bombing runs on the Japanese fleet bombarding Wake Island.

>>41878143Arizona is the lewdest battleship.
>>41878143Yesss. Well done!
>>41878089Moving away from a torpedo reduces it's closing speed and makes it easier to get out of it's path. At least compared to every other possible angle.Besides bow hits tend to penetrate far deeper because of the added water pressure against the ship's bulkheads resulting from all that built up momentum.

tfw you realize the reason Edo-soo-ru couldn't run from the ships that sank her is because her own depth charges had damaged her when she sank I-124
The wall of the CIC is a tapestry of mayhem and death; bright flashes of light bathing the dark room in a kaleidoscope of horror. “SBDs, hit the low bombers!” Hornet snaps, and as one her massive dive-bomber compliment, all thirty-six of them, wheel away from her decks and enter shallow dives to intercept the cloud of abyssal torpedo bombers closing on Kaga's broadside from the north-east. Each flight drifts into a loose finger-four formation; singling out a target to maximize the power of their two .50 caliber cowling guns and present any fighters trying to swing onto their tail with a combined defense. Hornet's SBDs knocked down some torpedo bombers at Santa Cruz, and with twice the number on the defense now, your hopes are high for good results. “Dive-bombers, bearing three-three-zero, high!” Shiranui's cool tone reports. “I see'em!” Sammy declares. She's wielding a five-inch gun in each hand, like an old-west gunslinger. “COME AT ME, IF YA THINK YER HARD ENOUGH!”
>>41878783no st.louis led ship of her class of class

>>41878783no, that was a sketch of Helena's sister I think
You and Goto both tense, fear tightening your muscles. Dive bombers are the biggest threat, by far, and a good twenty-five with fighter escort are closing on your task force, fast. Sammy's go-pro feed shows Hornet studying the sky, her dark eyes sizing up the newest inbound wave intently. “Flight three, four, five, six, seven, hit those dive-bombers! One, two, hang back over me and prepare to intercept any leakers!” “She's good,” Goto whispers. “She was the first ship ever equipped with a CIC,” you reply. “And she learned lessons in her early battles that'd form the basis of CAP direction for the US Navy in every battle and war since.” “We made the right call?” he says hopefully, but you both know it might still count for nothing.

The SBDs hit the wall of torpedo bombers like a ton of bricks; sending four abyssals spiraling into the water, black carapaces shattered by .50 caliber slugs. Their escorting fighters set upon them immediately, but in groups of four the SBDs rear guns cannot be ignored. Some of them bob and weave, taking quick shots as they keep ahead of the rear gun's hungry muzzles, but the sturdy dive bombers shrug off the damage as they turn hard to saddle up on the hostile torpedo planes. Two fifty calibers isn't much, but the heavy slugs carry well; the bright staccato flashes of AP-I smashing into the abyssal's tails making your heart sing. A hostile fighter tries to saddle up on an SBD for a long hosing-down, but the awful, toothed grin disintegrates under a hail of lead from their rear gunners and sinks, smoking, towards the waves. The abyssal torpedo planes spread out their formation even more – they'll have to give it up soon anyways to launch a properly distributed spread of fish at Kaga. You flip to Shiranui's camera; watching Kaga draw her bow back send a shotai of Zeroes into the air; freshly refueled and rearmed – her only contribution to the CAP. They turn hard and roar into the attack.

“P-P-P-P-P-PLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANES-” Willie is screaming. Her go-pro is looking upwards (and vibrating more than it ought,) showing the dark navy dots of Hornet's Hellcats slamming into the dive-bombers. The fighters surge forward to engage, letting some of them slip through the stream. They're heartbeats away from their pushover point when another flight of Hornet's fighters and one of Akagi's Zeroes charges into them, blowing their formation apart like a hawk diving into a flock of sparrows. “More dive bombers, above us!” Akagi shouts, “Bearing, bearing right, to the RIGHT! Kaga, fire up! UP!” “Copy,” she replies, her voice vibrating like a tense steel cable as the diminutive guns on her shoulders swivel away from the incoming torpedo planes and begin thundering at the new arrivals.”“Flights One and Two, get them, GET them!” Hornet cries, but Two is already chopping down the leakers from the first gaggle. There's too many of them, too god-damned many of them, two whole carrierloads hitting at once. They must've launched their entire compliments in one damned deck-cycle, and now, despite holding back as much as you can, you're being overwhelmed.
>>41878866Extremely lewd!Remember, practicing before deep throating is highly advised to prevent gagging!
>>41878969inb4 Willie rapes everything in the sky
“Bat Four, Fox Two!” “Bat Seven, Fox Two!” “Bat Eight, guns guns guns-”“-guns guns from three-” Someone cries out as the Marine F-18s scream through the second squadron of dive bombers that circled to the south before attacking; their ugly misshapen forms vanishing in plumes of flame and debris as their tight, lethal formation is blown apart. But it's too late to destroy any more – they reach their pushover point and come screaming out of the sky in steep dives, targeting your ships. “Akagi, hard starboard!” Goto screams – Kaga can't steer into Hornet to her right and the torpedo bombers are approaching from her left. Hornet could follow Akagi, however.[ ] Order Hornet to heel over hard to starboard; dodge the incoming ordinance.

>>41879291Pennsylvania's modernization added almost 4,000 tons of weight on top of her decks.That weight, should Ari receive said modernization, be focused mostly on the bow areas.
what about hurricane bows?
>>41879237Fairies are fairies are fairies. Even the American ones speak Japanese, or something very similar to it. I think they pretty much count as their own culture.Speaking of which, that one pilot still needs medal and a... Whatchamacallit? Non-Judicial something-or-other. A slap on the wrist for breaking formation.>>41879281The moment we start messing with the fairies' deployments is the moment we start kicking this war into overdrive.

Well she was slated for a refit before she went kaboom so if a ship can get a modified bow like the Graf Zeppelin did I don't see why we cant slap a new bow on her but that might really screw with how she interacts with water.
>>41879412Pennsy didn't need a clipper bow, and if anything that would slim her down even further since its meant to be more streamlined.

>>41879708Kinda-fucking sorta. Basically, no, but they have more or less unlimited fucking access to government funds. At least, ours do, I don't know about the Japs. Naka's the exception, apparently as Settle's sexre- secretary, she's got all the same fucking privileges as our girls.
>>41879654Nothing but it's been left up in the air enough for a writefag to put something down if someone was open for it. Fan theory is that the eastern Seaboard including New York Harbor got hit by the battleships sunk off the coast and she might have given them a lesson on why they were sunk in air warfare trials.
