Our second thread of the night! I don't know if we'll actually clear the backlog, but we ought to get fairly close. Old thread while it lasts: >>23400549++[x] “Call for a tanker. If we can't get one, we'll land at Iruma and fuel there, that'll take less than fifteen.”“Call for a tanker, Merlin. Has to be one up with this mess, somewhere. If we can't get one, we can land at Iruma and get turned around in less than fifteen.” you say, eyeballing your falling fuel reserves. You've got maybe two minutes at full burners, then you're dry, man. Merlin's helmeted head bobs in the back as she nods. “O-ok Frank.” she responds, her voice hesitant. She comes back a minute later. “Frank, there's no tankers up. The Sara's going to launch a pair of intruders. But that's going to be a few minutes.”“Well hell.” You respond. “well, fine. You did good, Merlin.” You turn your fighter into a more easterly heading, making for the nearby Iruma airbase. “Boss, we're going to have to fuel at Iruma. There's no tankers up.”Ice looks back over her shoulder and nods. “Alright,” she responds. “But hurry. I'd rather let you get in some shots with those AMRAAMs before we go in there.”1/2
Your air traffic controller at Iruma sounds rushed, but gets you on the ground in a hurry, where a fuel truck is waiting, it's crew nervously looking at the sky while a pair of Type 87 SPAAGs squat nearby. It takes them a minute to find your fuel ports and another minute to start the pumps, and since you have to leave everything running- a 'hot' refueling- it takes a little longer as your engines burn fuel while you sit, even throttled back to almost nil. Finally, the hoses detach with a noted thunk, and the lead tech flashes you a thumbs up. “Anytime would be good, frank. The Twins have engaged with their AMRAAMS, the fighters will be on top of us in less than a minute.” Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.  We'll save the shortrange weapons for the fighters, and use the BVR stuff on one of the bigger planes!

>>23408682>[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.
 Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball. I fucking love you Ghost.
>>23408703[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.If we can take out the fighters fast enough, then those bombers and transports are toast.
>>23408703[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.The lady wants missiles so she'll get missiles.
>>23408703> Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.Better to take out the fighters as quickly as possible; we can use guns on the big transport planes if they're dumb enough to stick around without fighter cover.
>>23408703[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball.
>[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball. No real reason not to, any bigger planes we can waste once the escorts are gone.
[X] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball. Time for missile spam.Also looks like Katya knows that the competition is starting to heat up.

>>23408747TIEM FOR GUN
>>23408703[X] We'll save the shortrange weapons for the fighters, and use the BVR stuff on one of the bigger planes!Sounds good to me.
also watch out for miss stalin...she might come back
>>23408813I am sad the yandere merlin story was never posted. Now I also wanna read one where frank gets captured by little miss crazy Stalin.
>>23408859It will be fap fictionWhere Fronk's hip will move on their own. and captured traitor katya is forced to watch
>>23408883I am alright with this, as long as Ice watchs too.
Guys.Guys.What. What if.What if Konstantina Stalin is the actual Stalin in a female cyborg body?
>>23408883This man knows the score.Keep it up comrade.
>>23408902He wants to be a girl?
>>23408902That's absurd.If it was FemStalin it would be Iosefina.
>>23408902Living the dreamHe IS the little girlA MAGICAL little girl
>>23408883I gotta stop lurking and say: that gif fucking killed me. Haven't laughed that hard in a while, stomach sore now. Thanks. Back to the shadows.
>>23408950It is amazing, is it not?
>>23408975Yeah its great, fucking saved Left it random numbers so when I go back in my folders and wonder what it is i can laugh as hard again.
>>23408924Or Stalinka maybe.
>>23408703> We'll save the shortrange weapons for the fighters, and use the BVR stuff on one of the bigger planes!Tell the boss what is up first.
[x] Pour it on, try to get in launch range for the AMRAAMS before those fighters get in a furball. You run some quick math in your head as you take off. With full fuel and down only two agiles, you're really going to have to pour it on to get a launch window for the AMRAAMs unless you want to use them on the big, easy targets. And the big, easy targets you can handle with guns or the smaller missiles- they can't defend themselves nearly as easily. “Merlin, you're going to have to do your thing.” You mutter over the intercom, switching your weapons computer to tracking for the AMRAAMS. While you were fortunate enough to be compatible with the Japanese AMRAAM equivalent, it won't fire with the same guidance, which is going to be tricky- you'll have to launch the AMRAAMs, switch to the Japanese missiles, re-acquire, and launch those. “Boss, did we ever get a fix on the attackers?” You ask as Merlin works her magic- the computers are tracking two targets currently, tasking a pair of AMRAAMs to each. “Chicoms, for sure.” Ice responds. “Frank, you need to hurry.”1/2
FUCK YA WITCHES, FOLLOWING ON MY PHONE.
“Yeah, we're en route. In fact... Fox three!” You call, dropping the four AMRAAMs into the air, and watching them blast through the sky, their rockets carrying them away at Mach 4. You've reset your weapons over to the Japanese AMRAAMs less than a second after launch, and Merlin's designated four more targets- again, keeping two missiles per bandit. “C'mon Merlin...” You whisper as she works with the weapons computer and attempts to lock up the incoming fighters. Less than a second later, all four targets are locked up, and you launch the eight missiles, countering the sudden loss of weight easily. Four target tracks disappear- it looks like there's a jamming aircraft in there somewhere playing havoc with missiles. The fighters shift track a bit, followed by the bigger aircraft, but the choppers don't, sweeping in over the coastline behind the aircraft.  Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out! Get those bombers! They'll do the most damage! Those transports have to be full of paras! Let's get those before they can drop! Get the Helos! That's an air assault if I've ever seen one!
>>23409357 Kill the jammer?
>>23409357rrr I can't pick!!!
>>23409357Get the fighter. Witches and AA can take care of the bombers, transports, and helos.
>>23409357> Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!
 Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!It takes two to tango lady.
>>23409357[x]swat down fighter cover first, then bombers/transports.
>>23409357> Those transports have to be full of paras! Let's get those before they can drop!We don't need ANOTHER ground war going on, dammit.
[X] Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!With us taking out the fighters the SPAAGs can concentrate on the helos.
>>23409357[x] TransportsIN THE END. YOU NEED TROOPS TO HOLD THE GROUNDNo troops, no holding power.
hit the transports! we can't let them start a new ground war..
>>23409357Use all our remaining missiles on the fighters, then switch to guns to eat up transports and Helos.
>>23409357[x] Prioritise the fighters!Once their cover's down, the rest will be easy pickings.Keep an eye out for the jammer...
>>23409357[x] Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!
>>23409357Kill fighters, fuck stalin-girl, get money. Ill also bet that shes doing this on purpose to she how we operate.
>>23409357[x] Get the Helos! That's an air assault if I've ever seen one!They'll die the fastest.
>>23409472Helos are slow and vulnerable, and on a strategic sense, their threat was negligible.
smash the fighters first
>>23409455kill money, sell stalin girl fuck fighters
>>23409357[X] Those transports have to be full of paras! Let's get those before they can drop!Can't risk the ground getting taken.
I'm praying that this doesn't turn out to be another debacle.
>>23409489If we secure air superiority, the paras are fucked either way.
>>23409510There's no AA on the ground?
>>23409510This.[x] Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!
>>23409357> Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!If those fighters go down, we have free reign to molest everything else.
How dangerous are helicopters to a jet?
>>23409644not very i's wagger
 Get the Helos! That's an air assault if I've ever seen one!
>>23409644ever played metal gear solid?
>>23409644They can carry air to air missiles (but are usually configured for air to ground) and have autocannons or machine guns. If they could actually track the jet well enough to get fire on it they could do some damage, but it's unlikely due to the massive speed difference.
>>23409683A HIND D!?Time to swat a couple of noisy files
>>23409683That's unfair.Liquid is a godly super soldier, even if he's fun to mock.He is the equal of his brother, after all. And look at all the shit he survives - Helicopter exploded. Missiles shot repeatedly into the cockpit of his giant robot. Thrown off same giant robot. Several dozens of shots from a large-caliber machine gun. Jeep crash.It took some sort of genetically engineered super virus to put the guy down.
>>23409357>[x]Transports>[x]HelosKeep their boots off the ground, we can recover much easier from fighters and bombers than we can paras with air support
[x] Prioritize the fighters! With them gone, the big stuff will have to bug out!You think for a second. The transports have to be loaded with paratroopers, but there's no good drop zones here- the airport is about it, everything else is either urban or covered in trees. The bombers will have to bug out if their fighters are gone, and those helos are probably the least threatening of the lot, easy marks for the type 87 SPAAGs, not to mention any MANPAD weapons the IJA and base force troops in the area have. You break high, watching the witches go to work. Without any witches of their own- the majority of the Chinese witches were in the south, it seems like, and the only Soviet witch anyone's seen was that Stalina psycho, the fighters are just so much meat to chew through. Still, the chicoms are infamous for maintaining fighters that other nations have long discarded as too obsolete to be useful- these fighters seem to mostly be the Chinese knock-off Mig-19s, which are a joke to your fighter. You dispatch a pair with contemptuous ease, watching the big bombers start to turn south and jettison their loads well away from any targets- making a run for it, it looks like. The Transports shift their track just slightly and you watch the first parachutes blossom from their massed tactical drop on the airport. 1/2
A second pair of fighters falls- one to an Agile, the other to your guns- and the helos change track, sweeping in under the dogfight, between the buildings. Down there, they're practically immune to BVR fire, and hard to hit, even for you. The only massed body of troops in the city right now is the imperial palace guards, and while they're well equipped, well trained, and superbly motivated, there's just over a reinforced battalion of them, with only a platoon of SPAAGs and no armor.The helos look to be making a beeline for the imperial palace. Obsolescence aside, you're not sure your squadron will be able to interdict them without the fighters being an issue, but you might be able to break off and do it, or hit those transports before they can drop their second load. You're pretty sure the twins could too, though you don't think they refueled, and they have to be lower on weapons than you are.  Stay on the fighters! The Japanese fighters can't be that far out anyway! I really don't like what those choppers are doing, and there's enough of them to have enough troops to overrun the palace guard. Let's get them! Those transports have to go! If they can take the airport, they've got a staging point into the city proper!
>>23409813>[x] I really don't like what those choppers are doing, and there's enough of them to have enough troops to overrun the palace guard. Let's get them!ok wax em we cant let them take the palace!
>>23409813[x] I really don't like what those choppers are doing, and there's enough of them to have enough troops to overrun the palace guard. Let's get them!
>>23409813 I really don't like what those choppers are doing, and there's enough of them to have enough troops to overrun the palace guard. Let's get them!I guess its time to fight FOR THE EMPEROR!
>>23409813[X] Those transports have to go! If they can take the airport, they've got a staging point into the city proper!Can't have that now can we.
>>23409813Tell Ice to go after the Choppers. The X-02 is terribly unsuited for fighting lots of choppers but witches can hover while we'll be forced to make multiple passes when we're out of missiles.We stay on the fighters, then move on to transports.
>>23409813[x] Send the witches after the copters while we handle the fighters.Seriously, witches should be waaaaaay better at low level urban combat than we are.
>>23409813HIT THOSE FUCKING CHOPPERS! We can't let the Imperial Palace fall! It'll knock Japan right out of the war!
>>23409813> I really don't like what those choppers are doing, and there's enough of them to have enough troops to overrun the palace guard. Let's get them!
Paratroopers shouldn't be that big of a threat if they're all concentrated at the airport. Just makes it easier to surround and bomb them.
>>23409813[x] Task the witches to clean up the choppers while we hit the transports
>>23409836>>23409838THIS.Fighters have to makes passes.Witches can take the lot out while hovering.
>>23409813>[x] Those transports have to go! If they can take the airport, they've got a staging point into the city proper!
>>23409858YES.This makes the most sense. Witches take the choppers and the Wyverns stay on the fighters.
>>23409838Sounds like a plan.[x] Send the witches after the copters while we handle the fighters.
>>23409857>>23409836good enough for mebetter than my ask-planebot-what-to-do method
>>23409836Better plan Second.
>>23409864The airport will be freaking useless to them if we have air superiority and they can't have brought serious AA assets with them. Let them have the airport. They won't keep it for long.
>>23409813Witches take the Helos, we take the transports, once the air is clear start staging the paras, keep them confined to the airport.
>>23409836This, sic our Witches on those Helos while we continue to rape fighters, it lets everyone do what they're really good at.
>>23409836>>23409813Get the shark twins to go after the Transports.They won't need to manuvuer too much and once weapons are empty, they can book it for refuel and rearm.We can tangle with the fighters and keep them off the twins.
>>23409903If we can, YES.Twins won't waste whats left of munitions, fighters forced on defensive and we can drop in and kill them.Transports will also be forced to drop off target, those that drop at all.
>>23409888>>23409903Let's put these together.Twins go after the transports, we keep the fighters off them, and whatever witches we can spare can go after the transports.Yes, I know. "All of the above"
>>23409820>>23409830>>23409831>>23409843SO BASICALLY, DON'T DO THESE!>>23409813Dispatch the Witches to deal with the Choppers while we deal with the fighters!(BTW.. I love how, in /tg/ when referring to a character, it is a "we", not a he/she. It's awesome, being a part of a group, dictating actions..)
>>23409975We are the hivemind.The uncountable command crew.The cerebrate anon.
I hope those Japanese witches get there in time.
>>23410027> The uncountable command crew> The unACcountable command crewHow incredibly true each of these statements are sometimes...
Getting ice to save the royal family means she get a new shiney.Heh.
>>23409813>[x] Those transports have to go! If they can take the airport, they've got a staging point into the city proper!most strategic asset here, can not let that fall
Sadly there's almost no Chinese Witches. Only one I can find is this WWII one on the left.
If anything, this thread shows /tg/ incorporates and puts to use fictional combat assets very very easily.
>>23410115A staging point is useless if you cannot hold it.We do this right, they will have no support or resupply.We'll give the IJA a good live fire exercise.
>X-02Wait, this is in this campaign? Really? switchblade wing doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Now if we were flying a two seat YF-23, that's a different story. (But if we HAD to fly an Ace Combat plane, XFA-27 makes more sense. Swing-wing master race)
>>23410120> mfw airborne Witch sword fightWHY ISN'T THIS ALREADY HAPPENING???
>>23410176We are flying a X-02 switchblade, yes.In a verse with magical girls who fly using leg jet packs in their underwear.Where martians invaded during WW2.I think you'd have a better time poking holes in other stuff.
>>23410120i just hope their weapons quality is as good as the products they make today.which explodes within days.
[x] Other! (have Ice detach witches to hit the Helos, provide top cover.) “Ice!” You call out over the radio. “You see those choppers?” “What ch... oh shit.” Ice says, sounding surprised. “Yeah, about those. Me and the twins can't get in those buildings as well, it'll take us a lot of passes to do any real damage. You girls are way better suited to go get them!” You say, outlining your plan. “Frank, we're way low on gas, and just about outta ammo.” Alyssa says over the squadron net. “We can stick around maybe a minute more, then we have to break off. You'll be tackling these fighters on your own.”You shrug. “They're thirty year old clunkers. I think I can manage.” You respond, underscoring your statement by sending another one spiraling out of control sans it's rear third to slam into a skyscraper. You wince, glad the attack happened in the early morning- the business district is pretty quiet, and you're hoping that's going to keep casualties light. Ice dispatches another, and nods. “Alright, we're dropping down. You'll have to handle any leakers.” “Got it boss. Go git 'em.” You respond, suddenly relishing the relative challenge. There's maybe a dozen fighters left, but suddenly, you're the only opponent in the air for them. Still, it's a hell of a lot easier than your fight with Konstantina earlier. A pair of the Migs goes down to a pair of agiles, leaving you with three, and the Japanese shortrange AAMs. 1/2
Down below, the witches are reaping a fearsome tally from the choppers, though they're proving able to fight back with door guns, machine gun fire sparking off witch shields as bullets punch holes in skyscrapers. The transport aircraft complete their drop and break off to the south, following behind the long-departed bombers. The fighters doggedly hold on, losing another to a high deflection gunshot before the survivors- nine aircraft out of an initial thirty plus- begin to flee the airspace. “Ice, it's clear up top, if you need a breather, get above the skyline.” You say, sweeping the airspace once more before taking up an orbit over the palace grounds. “These guys are breaking off.” She responds, climbing above the skyline, her weapon slung and one arm held limp by her side. IJNAF F-14s begin arriving in the airspace shortly after- claiming a few of the remaining choppers before the last ones make the relative safety of the airport- already firmly held by PLA paratroopers. MANPAD SAMs reach out for a few adventurous fighters, not hitting any, but making it clear the airspace in that area is hot, at least for now. The one change to the day is you're redirected to Yokota airbase. The antiship missiles launched at the Saratoga were submarine fired, and her captain responded by replacing your Wyverns with a pair of Vikings- beefing up her antisubmarine capabilities for the time being. At least your temporary quarters on the base now display the squadron logo outside the door. And you won't have to deal with a briefing room.
>>23410178You'd think anyone would animate kawaii shoujou's slicing through each other?If only...feels bad man
And that's it for the night! I think almost eleven hours is enough for anyone, right? haha! we'll be back next week at the same time! I'll see you all then, and as always, I hope you guys had fun!
>>23410203>poking holes in other stuff>not poking holes in where Witches store spare magazines and shitPleb.
>>23410223Thanks for running, ghost.Did we do well in that last fight?Where they going to kidnap the royal family?
>>23410223>enoughNo such thing but all good things must come to a (temporary) end. See you next week.
>>23410223night ghost.hopefully next thread we find out the pros and cons of defending the palace vs the airport
>>23410176IIRC, we DID have the option of taking the YF-23, but it was a strike fighter, not a dogfighter like the Wyvern.
>>23410219Get Urobutcher to write it and that shit will sell itself.
>>23410178cause there can only be ONE swordwielding girl!
>>23410223Was awesome Ghost, nice to see you back up.
>>23410223Thanks for runnin' again Ghost. You're a cool guy and you should feel cool.
>>23410211>limp armAw shit. Iccce, you're hurt!!??
>>23410223It's been fun. See you next week ghost.
>>23410223Thanks man.>>23410251But you posted a pic of two sword-wielding witches.Granted, Perrine doesn't get to use hers very often, but when she does it is perfectly elegant.>>23410266Her weapon, not her arm.>bishop iikeentCaptcha's got a new OTP it seems.
>>23410244>tactical vestsStill doesn't explain where they pull magazines from. They gotta go through ammo quick as rain. Where do they store it all? They're in the air and sortied for hours. They just downed dozens of choppers and before that a score of Migs.WHERE DOES THE AMMO FUCKING COME FROM MAN?! FUCKING WHERE?!
>>23410297>Granted, Perrine doesn't get to use hers very often, but when she does it is perfectly elegant.Damn, I didn't even think about that. Mostly cause she never uses it in the anime....... ;_;
>>23410302Well in SWQ, wasn't Robin firing an M1 fully auto or something? TLDR; Magic
>>23410302[insert magic I don't give a tits pic here]Couldn't find it... 2nd picture on google is my little pony. the fuck
>>23410302Magically enhanced ammo means they only need a small burst to take down something as fragile as a chopper or plane.
>>23410302General purpose hand accessible stores on strikers?Some artwork has also depicted gau-8 ammo drums on the small of the back.They could easily store it there
>>23410314Her primary weapon is a Springfield.
>>23410314Springfield with that funky WW1 era bolt replacement semiauto device that actually existed.
>>23410326Mondragon is my raifu.
>>23410223Nice game Ghost.I'm going to want to get that airbase back next time.
>>23410362It's an airport, not an airbase, which means the paratroopers holed up there are shit out of luck when it comes to supplies.
>>23410362coincidently enough, 1st image that pops up on Google Images when you search "Iruma Air Base"
Since Ghost is done, here's a thing I made for you /tg/I apologize in advance.
>IJNAF F-14Pretty neat, I've been collecting modernish Strike Witches pictures and I'll share them.
>>23410375>That fap ficStop posting that.
>>23410380I know Japan (well, maybe except for their top brass) has a hard-on for the F-14, but I'm assuming they weren't occupied after the Martian invasion. I'd think they'd have some more indigenous fighters at this time than just the F-1.
>>23410120Have some PLAAF witches I found.
>>23410432Well they do have sone Shinden IIs around, but I guess it's just cheaper to buy American planes than develop your own.
>>23410399okay.jpg>>23410432>>23410535Maybe they saw how badly their fighters were performing in the 40s during the later years of the war and decided to just mooch off imports from the US while they worked on their own superfighter/F-15/F-22 equivalent? Why bother making the crappy mass-production stuff when we can just buy America's. Good for diplomacy too.I would kinda love to see where the hell IJAF design doctrine went in the intervening years, though. Especially with the looming cold war. At least they have the Shinden II. Japan might not have the US's half-dozen competing defense contractors all making their own shit.
I'm now just noticing we actually did give Stalin the missile dick.Unfortunately, we missed the hole and exploded pre-maturely.
