There's seven tanks racing down the valley below you- in the front (and still pulling ahead) is Turtle Team's Panzer 38(t), the flag tank. Behind her is Miho's Pz. IV, doing its best to shield the flag tank, firing backwards at their pursuers. Directly behind that are five of Saunders M4A1 Sherman tanks in rapid pursuit- firing wildly ahead. Fortunately, at their clip they aren't hitting much, or even getting that close, and even Hana's rounds seem more about discouraging the Shermans from getting too close than doing any damage.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and senshado is absolute chaos, compared with the slick, slow duels you'd experienced back in America- it seemed as though you hadn't stopped moving all morning, moving from one skirmish to the next. Over the tactical frequency, you hear Miho shouting commands to Turtle Team on where to go- somewhere else Rabbit Team is still in trouble. You have five targets in front of you, and none of them are the real prize of the game: Saunder's Firefly Sherman- armed with a 17pdr gun with perhaps one of the finest gunners in the league, the two of you had been hunting each other all morning. And you get the feeling she's closer to you than you are to her.But nevermind that- targets. "Load AP!" You tell Roy.>"Miho, we're in position to support.

You're about to give the order to fire when a thought strikes you- The Firefly is still out there, probably sitting somewhere in the woods opposite of you, gun already trained on your ridge, waiting for the tell-tale puff of explosive gasses to pinpoint your position.And for a moment you're tactically gridlocked- you need to fire in order to save the flag tank, but firing gives your position to the Firefly. You grimmance- not firing ensures a loss, firing is only a maybe. You're about to give the order to Rose, moving the gunsight over the lead Sherman, when fate intervenes by way of Rabbit Team.The big, green Lee smashes through the folliage ahead of the convoy of tanks, fortuitously in a perfect position to fire on the Shermans as they approach. They don't waste any time- the sponson-mounted 75mm belches fire first, throwing a round into the right track of the lead Sherman, causing it to immediately buck sideways, showing its thin side armor to the Lee's 37mm turret, from which erupts a steady stream of high-velocity armor piercing shells, making quick work of the Sherman. The second in the line attempts to pass its stricken comrade, but as it slows to turn it's hit frontally by the second 75mm shot, the AP round piercing cutting through the lower-half of the armor covering the final drive.This is the last shot it makes, though. As the 38(t) drive full-speed into the opposite treeline, followed shortly thereafter by the Panzer IV, a single shot rings out, striking the Lee hard on its left-front quarter- the flag immediately pops.>Try to spot where the shot came from.>Finish what the M3 started, while the Shermans are slowed.>...What was that?>Other.

You immediately scan the treeline opposite you, watching for smoke or any other signal that a shot had been fire. "Rabbit Team: Status?" You ask, keeping your voice even. You have a creeping feeling that you know exactly who made that shot, but you keep hoping someone else will come up with a conclusion."Did you see that!" Azusa said, letting out a warhoop. "We kicked ass!" You can't help but smile at her enthusiasm. "Oh! Uh, we're fine!"You come away from the A-set smiling, but its time to get back to business. "Anyone see where that shot came from?" You ask, still moving back and forth across the treeline- useless if she fired from far enough back in the forest. Richard and Rose both respond in the negative. You shake your head."Grizzly Team!" Miho says over the tactical frequency. "Yukari says that was the Firefly!"You grab the headset, practically shouting. "Did she see it?!""Negative- but she says she'd know that gun report anywhere..." You grimace. Well, at least you know the Firefly is close- for better or worse. Its time for your crew to do their job for the battle- find and kill the Firefly.>Pull back and move along the back of the ridge for a better angle.>We need that Firefly to take another shot- we need bait.>Have we seen the >Other.

>>29032833HAHA, TIME FOR PANZER!>Pull back and move along the back of the ridge for a better angle.We don't have the numbers to just bait them into the open, and they know it. Between the Firefly, which looks to have a good position, and the persuit on our flag tank, we may be in some serious trouble.Which is something I feel needs to be pointed out: the Firefly may have eyes on our flag tank!

black jack you got me addicted man. I spent 2 days reading all the other chapters in the archives.
>>29033313Yes. That is the first step. The next step is when I start demanding donations in return for threads.
Also for those who are keeping score, we've knocked out 8 tanks so far and only lost one. I like that ratio, but let's not get cocky.
>>29033203>Which is something I feel needs to be pointed out: the Firefly may have eyes on our flag tank!I doubt it. My guess is that the tanks that Rabbit team ambushed are its scouts. It has eyes on them.

"Richard." You say, practically feeling the Firefly's scope on Black Jack. "Very slowly get us back over the bridge." He obliges- it isn't easy to be sneaky in a fifty-ton heavy tank but Richard knows Black Jack nearly as well as you do, and inches the hulk backwards- you can practically hear each leaf crunch and twig snap as he does.As the tank falls out of view of the rest of the valley, he speeds up a bit, coming to a stop in a gully that runs along the back of the ridge- the opposite side climbs to another hill a step higher than the one you'd been on. He comes to a stop. "Alright, Russells, where are we headed?"You study the map and decide to try something that had worked before back in the states when you tried to find a hidden enemy. Pulling out a pen you mark where the M3 was killed, as well as various obstructions like terrain and the disabled Shermans. From there you mark the direction based on where the tank was hit- right forward- meaning it came from further up the valley. From here you start drawing lines- that eliminate entire swaths of the valley due to a lack of line of site.There's a lot of places she could be hiding, but assuming she's not moving fast enough to give away her position, you can get a good idea of where she could be.>Pursue aggressively- we need to roll up on her before she can relocate.>Try to be sneaky- if she notices us coming she might get the first shot.>Try to move a spotter into position.>Other.
>>29033843>>Try to be sneaky- if she notices us coming she might get the first shot.>>Try to move a spotter into position.Let's go hunting. We still got somebody quick up?
>>29033843>>Try to move a spotter into position.When in doubt, call in backup! Miho might have a good idea of what to do.And since this thread started a bit later than usual, I must bed a bit earlier than usual. See you all in the morning.
>>29033843I think we should play this like we're hunting game of some sort, try and flush the firefly out.
>>29033843>Try to be sneaky- if she notices us coming she might get the first shot.>Try to move a spotter into position.it's a pity we can't hear them from here.

>>29034535should had trust my instinct of not trusting twitter..oh well.
>>29034560I got in a few minuets ago because I got distracted by Youtube. Twitter was fine on my end. (I was refreshing every half hour, which is why I was 30 mins late.)
is this the time for the summoning?
>>29035251(types from bed) is blackjack dead yet?
>>29035298I think he is
>>29035392either that or him missed his timer again and fell asleep. (not that I blame him, I'm half awake as is.)
>>29035251POST ALREADY BLACKJACK!
>>29035441not to sound whiny, but slow thread is slow. It's ... boring with out guys like Red Vanya, /k/ ripple, Sentinel, and Anchovy Writer posting stuff in between the main plot.
>>29035492I HAVE BEEN SUMMONED.Actually, I've been lurking, because I don't have anything to post. I've been busy with work and family and nothing has occurred to me. Unless you'd like to make a suggestion about what you'd like to see IS-2 Ob'yekt No. 768 doing or killing.
>>29035515Killing seems nice, comrade
>>29035515(holy sh*t that actually worked...)um... we have some good moments between Nonna and Vanya, why don't we give Katyusha some love and spotlight?
>>29035515Did someone already do a tonkspective piece on Maho's Tiger?And is it true that it bears the same designation as Wittmann's Tiger?
>>29035564Killing things and then feels between Ob'yekt No. 768 and Katyusha.>>29035573I don't know, I don't know.
>>29035573That was me, and yes I made it Whitmann's tiger from Villers-Bocage).>>29035607Had an idea for a Anchovy-esk piece about Nonna's boyfriend and Katyusha's. Observer historical exchange student and enthusiastic, eager-to-please commissar respectively sound good?
>>29035515(checks the summoning ritual) welp! didn't summon blackjack, but got someone worth while anyway.
>>29035749YES!... I mean, please continue.
>>29035675For Nonna's boyfriend, I think a foreigner might be interesting; military family, strong cavalry tradition, dates back to founding of nation's cavalry corps. Pravda represents a chance to learn about Soviet style tank warfare without trying to get into Russia or the Union, whichever it is. Just what I think, absolutely no need for you to use that. Katyusha's boyfriend might actually be quiet and reserved- when he speaks, he speaks with the voice of authority and experience.Just what I think, anyway. No need for you to use it or incorporate it or anything at all.
>>29035812...Nonna's boyfriend is an American Civil War re-enactor for the Union.
>>29035812I will hurt someone if he isn't a Cossack.
>>29035675>That was me, and yes I made it Whitmann's tiger from Villers-BocageOh. Yeah, found it.Could've sworn it was Tiger 212 in the anime though. Oh well.
>>29035812Military family for Nonna, check.>>29035865Ok, got it>>29035867Distant familiy emmigrated from Russia is the closest I can get.Quiet and authoritative for Katyusha... I was initially thinking of doing something more like a 40k Commissar, but I think a Krieger might be better.
>>29035906Maybe even someone from...Montana!
"Ok..." You say, exhaling. "Richard, I want you to take us slowly along the bottom of this gulley... Keep us low, keep us slow and keep us quiet." One half of the equation is being quiet and getting into position- but position means nothing if you've got nothing to shoot. The forest was too dense to spot through- you need someone to guide your eyes.Miho evidently comes to the same conclusion at the same time. "We need someone to find that Firefly." She says grimly. "To take shots and let Grizzly Team take it out."There's a long silence, and for a moment you're worried that Miho will have to conscript someone. "We'll do it." Noriko says. "We've got some armor- maybe we won't get horribly mauled?" There isn't a lot of hope in that statement."Alright, see the field? Need you to move through forest to E-8." You say, watching your map- that should give her decent cover- from that point on a copse of trees in the middle of the field and a salient of the forest itself would keep her out of sight of the rest of Saunders' team. "On my mark, I want you to move out into the field- You're gonna be a target for the Firefly so keep moving." You pause for a moment. "The more shots she takes at you, the more likely we are to see her. So drive that tank like you stole it.""Aye!" Noriko says, determination evident in her voice.>Take a high position- good overwatch of the area.>Take a lower position in the trees to stay hidden.>Get as close as you think is possible.>Other.
>>29035959>Take a high position- good overwatch of the area.
>>29035959>Take a high position- good overwatch of the area.we can afford to skyline ourselves. we can take hits, and possibly have someone spot the firefly when they hit us.
>>29035959>Take a high position- good overwatch of the area.>team GUTS>So drive that tank like you stole it."This will end well
>>29036002not this. You'll become a target
>>29036027Not from a Firefly we can't. The only place they can't pen us is our gun mantlet.>Take a lower position in the trees to stay hidden.
>>29035959>Take a lower position in the trees to stay hidden.The point of bait is to NOT get seen first
>>29036054Its just a 76mm. we still stay hull down,we'll be fine.
>>29035959>Take a lower position in the trees to stay hidden.
>>29036093Its got a QF 17-pounder. This is a gun to be feared, even for a Pershing.
>>29036093Word of God (aka Black Jack) says the Firefly's gun can happily poke holes in our tank anywhere save for the mantlet.
>>29036172If OP/DM says so, then >Take a lower position in the trees to stay hiddenLet's do tell the Volleyball team "One the count of five, Drive it like you stole it. One, Two, GO!"
>>29036093The 17pdr *is* just a 76mm. On steroids.And PCP.And someone told it you think it's compensating for a small dick.While our piddly M4A1's 76mm were busy bouncing off the sides of Panthers, the 17pdr was cutting Tigers to ribbons.
>>29036284It's such a big fucking gun the brits had to mount it upside down in the turret to get it to fit.
>>29035959>Stay hiddenWhat would happen if the Firefly is smart enough to not take the bait?
>>29036360Then there's an Excelsior wreaking havoc among Saunders's lines.
>>29036360At that point, we get... proactive.>>290362840.0... Ok, shutting up now. (we really should have gotten the Super armor before the Tournament.)
Aah, nothing like sleeping all day and waking up to Girls und Panzers>Sleeping all day? But what about SaS?BAHAHAHAHAHA
>>29036426hey, you get around to it when ever you feel like it, and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
>>29036426>>Sleeping all day? But what about SaS?I got this
.>29036426>Heeeeeee's a sentinel, and he's OK>He posts all night and he sleeps all day
>>29036426Actually haven't been able to write much due to lack of inspiration and getting distracted in general. Went to bed at 4am this morning then three hours later got conscripted into a 2hour walk up another mountain. Soon as we got back, it was sleep time.The only reason I'm awake now and not sleeping until fucking new year's is because this is on. I'll try and get some writing done now since I managed to write something that wasn't SaS last night.
>>29036523its funny, at this rate you're gonna become Maus-esque in your writing habits

"Alright, here..." You call down to Richard as you come to the end of the gulley as it empties out into the main valley- the woods are thick and you don't have to tell Richard to slow down. At this point he's crawling along so slow that you can feel each link of the track settled into the dirt and loam of the forest floor. "Alright, stop here!"Richard settles Jack into a sink in the dirt, low enough to give a half-decent hull down position, or least decrease your profile. You crack the hatch above you and slowly crawl out into your elbows with a pair of binoculars, staring through the trees- no luck for Duck Team. "Alright, Noriko..." You practically whisper. "We're in position.""Roger!" The Duck Team's commander responds, iron in her voice. "Ready to start our run."You take a breath. "Alright- GO!" You call, and you can hear her Excelsior's engine rev from your position, even if you can see her. You want to turn and watch her, but you need to keep your eyes on spotting the Firefly. You count seconds in your mind- why is it taking so long? Did she smell a trap?You bite your lip nervously, eventually so hard you can taste coppery blood. "C'mon... Take it. Take the bait..." You whisper to yourself, willing the Firefly's gunner to go for the kill.CRACK...BOOM! Report! As muffled and echoed back and forth by the trees as it was, your eyes snap to the direction of the shot. You don't see the Firefly, but you see the gout of smoke.>Good enough- aim through the smoke.>Wait for a clear shot.>"Did you see where it came from, Noriko?">Other.
>>29036810>Other.see if we can't move to a better vantage while still staying in cover or hull down
>>29036810>Wait for a clear shot.>"Did you see where it came from, Noriko?"No point firing blindly in a general direction.
>>29036810>Wait for a clear shot.
>>29036810>OtherFire a burst with the machine gun. If it goes plink, fire with the big gun.
>>29036810I want to say>>Good enough- aim through the smoke.But then I wonder how smart the Firefly is, are they smart enough to realise a lone tank charging into the open is bait and move after shooting, or are they just a generic enemy that finds a good spot to shoot from and does that
>>29036810Point the gun at that position. As soon as the firefly makes another shot, we're already staring right at their approximate position and ready to make minor corrections to fire
>>29036810>Good enough- aim through the smoke.we might be able to wing them.>>29036859good point, lets do that.Also, call >"Did you see where it came from, Noriko?" and ask what their status is. it they are fine, we might be able to do this once more. If they are knocked out, time to go stomping around.
>>29036810>Wait for a clear shot.I'm assuming the turret is already poised at the general direction of the smoke here.
>>29036869This. Stay on target...
>>29036861This is what I'm wondering. Did they take the bait knowing that? Are we being counterbaited?...are we absolutely sure there is only one Firefly?
>>29036968Saunders started with 15 tanks, right? We've killed eight, there are three chasing anglerfish and turtle (flag), there's their flag, there's the firefly, which leaves two tanks unaccounted for.I've lost track of hippo team
>>29036810>Smart people shoot and scoot.>Kay is smart people."Hold fire, wait for movement." Message Noriko.
>>29037014yeah, what happened to the StuG?
>>29037039Were I Miho, I would probably have them set up to further wreak havoc on the tanks chasing our flag. Either that or hunting for theirs
>>29037075So an earlier version of what they did canonically against Pravda? BlackJack,can you confirm this?
>>29037014Firefly5 M4A3s5 M4A2sM4A1 flag3 E8sWas the original lineup according to Yukari's spying. How does that lineup with what we've seen?
>>29037132Lemme pore over the past few threads...
>>29037132>>29037174Alright so it seems they changed their composition.>Three unspecified M4 tanks engaged, two of them knocked out>Three M4 tanks engage us, two of which are specified as M4A1s and neither of which are the flag tank. One of the M4A1s is damaged, the unspecified M4 is knocked out.>One unspecified M4 tank engages, is knocked out>Two E8 tanks engaged, both knocked out>Five M4A1 chasing flag tank, none of them flag, two of them knocked outWe're looking at at least 5-7 M4A1s depending on double-sightings, two confirmed E8s, the Firefly, and impossible to reckon the rest
>>29037299mind you BlackJack might just be dyslexic, seeing as how at one point he reported Saunders fielding a pack of Abrams
>>29037327lysdexia doesn't work that way
>>2903732712/10 I lost it. hahahahahahahah
>>29037341M4A1, M1A1, same thing
Your eyes drill into the cloud of smoke- it's tempting, you can't trust it. You need a clear shot. As the forest quiets after the crack of the 17pdr, you can still hear Noriko's engine powering across the field. You allow yourself a smile- you'll get another chance! "Noriko! Keep driving!" You whisper excitedly into the radio. "We almost have their position.""Got it!" She says cheerfully! "Shinobu can dodge these all day long!" She gloats before calling her team's phrase. "GUTS!" CRACK-BOOOM! A second report, and this time you're looking right where you need to be- Saunder's Firefly is smart- it's moved a good twenty feet back from where it was- but you can see it moving through the trees, now! You practically dive back into the hull. "TARGET! Eighty yards!" You grab control of the turret. "Bringing you on target... On target! Fire when ready!"You stare through the Firefly on the other end of the scope- Willing Rose's shot to count. "Firing." She says says and the turret erupts with noise as Black Jack's cannon recoils back- the round explodes against a tree, the heavy wood enough to trigger the shell's explosive filler. "Reload! HVAP!" You shout. "One more shot!" As the debris clears you can see the Firefly clearly- its not backing away or turning around, merely swivling the 17pdr to towards you."Up!" Roy calls from the seat- you're practically looking down the Firefly's barrel."Firing." Rose triggers the gun, and the Firefly disappears behind the T54's blast of smoke and flame.

>>29037627The conversation draws to a close and, you part ways with another firm handshake, signalling the rest of the crew who are leaning on the Buick“Shotgun” you say before pointing at Rob “suck it”The sound of hoof beats is heard through the open windows, you look out and see Rick riding with you to the gate.He tips his hat as you part ways“That guys a Cowboy” Rob says looking at him like a 5 year old in awe “that is badass”You look at your phone and see it's nearly 6, the drive back is two and a half hoursYou turn to Hamish “open the taps”He responds with a shuddering car as power courses through the Drive Train into the rear wheelsYou look back at your phone and send a quick message“Saturday come round by 5am"“You racing this weekend?” you inquire to your Driver“Yeah, on Sunday” Hamish looks over to you quickly “bet on me”“I kissed a girl and I liked it”“Rob”“The taste of her cherry chapstick”“fuck it">[2/?]
>>290376555am Saturday morning“Everybody get up i...”“Hah, I win, I win, I win” you say with a feeling of triumph creeping over you“Adam” Rob shouts from the Kitchen “get something to eat, Hamish is going to be here in a few minutesYou roll out of bed ready to put the hurt on some breakfast“What have we got?” you ask with excitement as you walk into the kitchen“We've got Oats, or Eggs, or Eggs on toast”“You're lucky this isn't a restaurant” you say as you start preparing Oats “otherwise I'd be asking for a refund”“Shits expensive yo” Rob replies “besides, we're already shopping at the discount grocery store"“That place smells weird” you say offhandedly“Hey” you say perking up “can make a bit of cash off the race tomorrow, should call Ray”“Do it later, you need to eat”“You're not my mom” you reply before digging in>[3/?]
>>29037679The front door slams open and a whirlwind wearing overalls walks in, “what's going on guys, ready to go?” it says with a grinRob flinches “Fuck John, knock next time”He goes in for a hug “no”You shake you head with a chuckle before going back to eating“So, how's it going?” Rob inquires looking over at John“Pretty good actually, you're looking at the new Assistant manager!”“After what, 3 years working minimum?”You drop your spoon back in the bowl, “what the fuck” you think to yourself before glaring at RobJohn doesn't sense this slight and powers on “Yeah, the old Assistant Manager was promoted to Manager”“Hey check this out” he continues “I got us some uniforms”Rob eyeballs it for a second before having another go “These look like prison uniforms”“Nah, they're from my work, don't worry we were going to throw them out anyway”“That's great, really” Rob says with an underlying tone of sarcasm>[4/?]
>>29037711You finish your Oats and stand to clean the bowl, John moves towards you taking the bowl from your hands “I got this man” he says with a smileYou quickly move over to Rob to talk with him in a low whisper “dude, don't be a dick”“What, it's just a bit of fun, he's a big boy he can handle it”“You know he hangs out with us all the time because there's no one else, his family is full of bigger dicks than you're being right now, so stop being an asshole”Rob raises his hands defensively “fine, fuck I didn't know it was such a big deal”You place a hand on his shoulder to prevent him from walking away like he usually does when told off “seriously Rob”“Alright, fine” he says shaking your hand off>[5/5]That's it for now
