Well, hey there nerds. Let's run some tonks, yeah? I know I was supposed to run Saturday, but homework got the best of me. Other than that, tonight will probably be short as I get back into the swing of things. Plus I'm on puppy duty, so there's that too. Anyhow, archive here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=mightym0useTwitter here: https://twitter.com/JakePenetratorAnd as always, I'm in IRC.======“Yep. Smells like Germany.”Standing next to you, Anderson stretches before bringing his arms in close around his body. European winter had set in strongly here, leaving snow on the ground even though it was early spring. The snow on the apron had been melted away by the maintenance crews long ago however, showing the all-too-familiar taxi lines.“I wasn't aware Germany had a specific smell, viking.”He cocks an eyebrow. “Viking, sir?”“I remember the battleaxe comment.”“Ah. Well, either way. Smells like beer, poor decisions, and combat here.”You nod. Watching the Achilles and Myrmidons roll out of the black C5's you flew over in, you can't help but wonder how the drivers could see out of the armored vehicles. Thick tarpaulins covered both the vee's chassis and turrets in order to obscure them from prying eyes. Either way, they were doing an expert job driving them down the ramps.(1/3?)
>>34395445You take your time watching the four vehicles form up, watching to make sure that the General Dynamics team are there and going over everything with a fine toothed comb. Wouldn't want to finally get back to the line just to have something silly and little keep you from the fight.“Any idea where we're off to?” Anderson asks. His hands are firmly planted in his pockets in a futile attempt to keep the cool spring breezes off of them. “No eyed deer. I'd suppose somewhere where fighting is light, that way we can test systems. Past that, your guess is as good as mine. Want some gloves?” You ask, offering your battered flight gloves. You'd stolen a pair from either Frank or Rex some time ago, long enough that you can't remember who they were from. The lieutenant takes a step away.“Sir, I know better than to take another man's personal effects. I also know for a fact that you've had those since we met and probably longer, and in that time they've not been washed once. I think I'll just deal with the cold.”You shrug. “Suit yourself. My hands are comfy. Yours are cold.”Soon enough, your orders arrive via some guy in a Humvee. You're to report to the 7th Panzer Division in Trebbin, some 55 kilometers from Berlin under special instruction from General Lindsay himself. Exactly who you're to report to, however, remains up in the air. “You believe this shit?” You ask, passing the paper over to your second in command.After skimming through it, he scoffs and hands your orders back. “You mean you'd want to keep new, experimental weaponry out of an augmentation status? Especially since they literally haven't been seen outside of APG or the factory? Now, that's just crazy talk, Captain. Gotta knock 'bout a hundred IQ points off of any good idea, remember? Gotta think army.”You shake your head. “Yeah. You got me there.”
>>34395466You pass out the warning order to the company, who promptly set to having the vehicles stand to, up and ready. Your infantry, all wearing fresh issue BDUs and body armor, run over their weapons and other high speed gear one more time before mounting up. You almost have to stop Meany from climbing onto Booze Hound, but realize that he's just headed over to fist bump Nicky. Soon enough, you're on the road. The roads are still in surprisingly good shape, despite the heavy traffic they've seen over the past few weeks. That, and the route you're taking is kind of a back road of sorts, it's certainly not the main rollbahn. Too high profile still, you think.“Hey, Captain?” Sargeant Rockfield, over internal comms.“Shoot, top.”“Why're we being relegated to foreign command? We're a silver bullet here, these four vehicles. An American commander would know how to use us.” “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?” “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?” other
>>34395484[x] “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”YUUUUUUSSSSS IT RETURNS
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”Holy fucking shit, it's actually happening.
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”
>>34395484[X] “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”I've only had 6 hours of sleep thanks to you motherfucker, make it worth it!
>>34395484>[x] “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”
>>34395484>[x] “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”Wow. Better get a lotto ticket or something, this is actually happening.
 “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”At least Mouse beat Panzer with actually returning to questing.
>>34395484>[x] “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”What was the difference between the Myrmidon and the Achilles?Was it the former had a railgun and the latter a Witch Shield Interface?
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”>Plus I'm on puppy duty, so there's that too. Dem puppies never leave you guys alone don't they?
>>34395484>[x] “Anxious to get back in it, Sarn't?”Top Best girl
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”If Germans are good at anything it's picking fights.
>>34395691I mean. They're doberman puppies. You ever have dobermans? They basically think they're the most attention starved dogs in the world, and that's between roughhousing with each other or dribbling water all over the kitchen floor or eating yes literally fucking eating their tug-o-war ropes. They're also gigantic dopes that think they're still palm-of-your-hand sized puppies. Protip. 90LB of dog does not a lapdog make. Just don't tell them.
>it's back>it's actually backYESSSSSSSSSSS>>34395768>90LB of dog does not a lapdog make. Just don't tell them.Tried that with my cousin's. She just stared at me until I gave in. Smug lil shit.
>>34395768Hey, it could be worse, it could be a Tibetan Mastiff like Mouse from the Dresden Files.Now THAT would be something to see.
>>34395768Waaaaaait.Why are you taking care of the puppies on quest day?
>>34395445Yo, would you mind putting Quest or CYOA or something into your thread subject so those of us who come here for the discussions can filter your threads?Not saying you're a bad dude or that your quests are totally unenjoyable to anyone but it'd be really nice since I'm sure I'm not the only one on this board who'd rather not have a front page full of quest threads.
>>34395867My bad bro, it's been a few months since I've run.
>>34395867He's been away from some time and still getting adjusted, I'm sure it was just a simple mistake.
>>34395893>>34395897The only reason I opened the thread was that I saw that familiar image for the OP in the catalog.
>>34395768Jeez man, I never knew puppies could be so high maintenance. I had a kitten once, (she is a cat now) and apart from food the most I ever had to do while raising her was to stop her from chewing on my headphone cables.I suppose the fact that there is more than one complicates things exponentially for you guys.>>34395893Heck, you forgot to give it a subject at all! If I hadn't recognized the tonk picture I might have missed the thread. Gotta start slow I guess.
I don't remember any of the characters. Can I have a Dramatis Personae?
>>34395484> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”i still call bullshit on this actually happening
>>34396057I'M EVEN WRITING THE SECOND UPDATE NOOOOWWWWWWOOOOOO 2SPOOKYYYYY
>>34396098The world is truly ending.
>>34396098HA! I'll believe it when I see it!
>>34396098if you don't then you are a NOD lover!
>>34396098Take your time.
>>34395893Thank you, man. You're cool.
> “Are you asking me if whoever is in charge of the seventh panzers isn't going to put us in a fight?”You cock an eyebrow, even though she can't see it. “Top, are you asking me if whoever is in charge of seven Panzer isn't gonna get us stuck in?” “Not at all sir. I'm just asking if they'll know how to use us. I mean -” She turns in her seat halfway, then cranes her neck back to see you. “- We're two tanks and a pair of middle weight fighting vehicles with some dismounted specialists. We're really not anything that could fight at a front. So, I guess what I'm really getting at, is what the hell are we doing here, at the front?” You're torn. Even though you're really not sure either, you know she won't take “Jesus top I dunno ask General Lindsay” for an answer. “We're gonna do whatever seven panzer's CO asks us to do. And we're gonna do the hell out of it. We're gonna do it harder than anyone has ever done it befo-” You stop yourself mid thought, catching Nicky giggling and Michael staring at you. Rockfield smirks a bit, before turning back to her MFD screens. “Yeah, I guess we will sir.” The road to Trebbin is quieter than you'd expect – especially being this close to Berlin. NATO fighters are on constant CAP flights it seems, as there's a constant dull roar of jet engines although you never really put eyes on them. Even so, it's nice knowing someone is up there watching your back. You'd never trade armor for three dimensional movement. Not ever.The column is called to a halt the first time some 200 kilometers out of Rammstein, where you're met by a US-German run checkpoint. “Orders, herr captain?” A fresh faced Feldjäger asks. Hand him your papers, ask him (x) Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence mode tell him to fuck off, you're in a tank, drive away.  other.
>>34396435>[x] Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence mode
>>34396435> Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence mode
>>34396435>[x] Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence modeIf he detains us at all, threaten to drop a general on his ass.
>>34396435> Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence modeNo need to be a dick to him.
>>34396435>[x] Hand him your papers, ask him (x)"How's morale at the front?"
 Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence modeJust some dude doing his job. No need to bitch to him.
>>34396435[X] Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence mode
>>34396956is that a fucking high mega launcher from zeta gundam!?!
>>34396970yep looks like it!
> Hand him your papers, maintain SOF coolguy silence modeYou pull your papers out of the pocket they've been riding in and hand them to the waiting MP. He looks over them, looks back to you and your vehicles, and then hands the papers back. “Ah, seventh panzers. I know the unit vell. I believe the unit distinguished itself near the Vistula crossing before the general retreat. The CO....well. You'll have to see them to believe them, herr captain. Carry on!” He hands you your orders before stepping back and sending you on your way. You're almost ready to give him hell for not saluting you, but then you remember you're back in a combat zone. Generally speaking, the rest of the ride is serene. Other than the CAP flights, that is. After stopping to refuel in Bad Hersfeld and warding off the quizzical looks of the people who had no idea you'd be showing up in vehicles they've never seen before (See, all of them), Corporal Siegel pings your private net.“Shoot, corporal” you respond. “Sir, I've um. I've gotta ask you something. It's important.”You can't help but wonder what's got her, of all people, riled up.  “Well, go on.” “Should we go combat ready? I feel like we should go combat ready.” other.
>>34397112> “Well, go on.”Keep calm.
>>34397112>[x] “Well, go on.”
>>34397112> “Well, go on.”
>>34396970Looks like a T-90 striker unit.
>>34397112> “Well, go on.”I am now curious.
>>34397112>[x] "well, go on."
>>34397112[x] “Should we go combat ready? I feel like we should go combat ready.”
>>34397112>[x] “Should we go combat ready? I feel like we should go combat ready.”
 “Well, go on.”There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.
>>34397559There are stupid questions.
> “Well, go on.”After tapping nicky to get his opinion (He shrugged), you thumb the push to talk on your comms. “Well, go on.”You can hear the tension in her voice. “Well sir, when we landed and got our orders, I made a call to a few friends. They got back to me just a few minutes ago. I uh, I asked who the CO of seven Panzer. To be honest sir, I'm really not sure how else to say this, so I'll just come right out and say this. Seventh Panzer is under one Oberstleutnant Paula Wittmann.”Your heart stops and your sphincter slams shut. “Uh. Wittmann?”“Yessir. That's what my girls said.”“Wait wait, it can't be that Wittmann. She was a Leutnant when we left her!”“Well sir, war takes it's toll. They've seen fighting since you pulled out, and that's been about all they've seen. Chances are it was both field promotions and what she had scheduled for her, but either way. It's that Wittmann.”You feel like screaming. Last time you saw her, she'd pulled a stunt that left your blood boiling for quite some time.And now she was gonna be your CO. No doubt about it.>What do, Herr Captain?
>>34397868Halt formation, turn around, find the nearest general that will countermand our orders.Fuck Wittmann.
>>34397868Swallow the bile and continue on.We're a fucking professional dammit.lol, when you said we would be seeing her again, I doubt that is what people had in mind...
>>34397868Find the general and get some other fucking CO.>OOC Is there anyway that we could get some backstory? Seems like I'm jumping into the middle of something.
>>34397868Nothing. Because whether the intent behind an action that gets people killed was glory seeking or not, they're still dead, and Wittman had good reason to believe we would get her girls killed.
>>34397868Stay calm, roll up like nothing ever happen. Take all of our anger and hatred and turn it into fuel that we will use to skull fuck the red menace.
>>34397924Read the archive it's there for a reason.
>>34397868Shut up and continue on.
>>34397924Read the archive.
>What do, Herr Captain?Get our heart beating again, take a deep breath and roll on to our post. If Wittmann has issues with us, we will try resolve them in the field. If that fails, we can bother a general.
>>34397868We'll just have to swallow our pride and take it. If we have to protest, we'll do it through official channels.
>>34397868Make a call to whomever assigned you to this bitch. Seriously, call in as many favors as you possibly can to avoid working under her, damn near any posting would be preferable. If that doesn't work, fuck I dunno, spit tobacco juice in her eye when you see her.
>>34397868AHAHAHAHAHA, this is fucking hilarious!Anyway, stay professional.
>>34397953Whoops. Completely skipped over that.
>>34397868"Siegel. You will meet her with me and if it looks like I'm going to do something stupid, then you will shoot me in the foot. Or maybe just punch me."
>>34397868Stop being butthurt and continue on, if she wants to start this back up again, then she's going to fire the first shot.The butthuirt of some of the people in this thread is hilarious.
>>34397891Don't do the first part.Do do the second. Wittmann does have an impressive frontal plate...
Lets not give her a single inch.
>>34397924Wittman was attached to our unit way back. Our actions and orders, while ultimately successful, we're risky and what some might even classify as reckless. Wittman survived a glory hound CO, and thought she was under another one. Jake assures her that the Bishops do not seek glory, only for Frank to go on global TV taking on an overwhelming Russian force over Tanana, that made Jake look like a lying asshole. Jake didn't see it that way, and holds a grudge against her to this day.
>>34397868What >>34397929 said.If anything, this just means we get to repay her with glory-hound comments
>>34398070Or, to put it another way, she showed Jake footage of his own brother apparently dying and tried to use it to prove herself smugly right.She very barely escaped being shot.
Yo Maus, question:What option did Top decide to go with? Wheelchair and wait for heelwitch or that scorpianthingmajigie?I hope she went for healwitch.
>>34397976General Landry, the SF general who gave us these shiny new prototypes and allowed Top to take the super experimental prototype implant, is the one who personally assigned us to 7 Panzer. Complaining won't get us shit, except more shit.
>>34398115>>34398070Alright. Good to know.
>>34398132See:>>34398119We still don't know what she went with.
>>34398136She was just a massive bitch about it, and we shut her down fucking hard, so there might still be some left over when we meet, but don't let it cloud your judgement, let's be professional about it.Until we start hatefucking her
>>34398174>>34398035She's literally worst girl. Why would you want to touch that?
>>34398115Smugly, I'll grant you. But this was after Jake had gone on a long tirade that he was not seeking glory even after giving admittedly risky orders, and doing the same things that got her previous platoon killed. She wasn't being smug about Frank's apparent death, she was smug that she got proof that Jake is a lying, self-aggrandizing asshole of a CO that would get her, her platoon, and all of the witches and men under his command killed just for another shiny medal and a pat on the back from command.
>>34398223nah, worstgirl would be that russian witch we hit in the chest with a long rodshe ain't that bad, your letting one single scene sour your judgement, and thats exactly what Wittman did...
>>34398223Vengeance and because we're /tg/
>>34398119>>34398159You can fucking tell which one she took from this very thread. Christ. Take some context clues. Or hunt down the write-up that was done. But of course that didn't spell out for the morons clearly enough since so many damn people kept asking even afterwords. I really do wonder what level reading comprehension you people have.
>>34398284No you can't, nowhere does it mention anything other than her being in our tank, which was going to happen either way, regardless of which option she took.Stop being such a colossal asshat.
if the soviets start fielding mammoth tanks I am going to panic
>>34398310>in our tank, which was going to happen either way, regardless of which option she took.And right there you solved one of the issues. Reading comprehension. Zero.
>>34398312> Mammoth> Not ApocalypseWrong C&C dude.
>>34398328What.Her being in the tank is entirely unconnected to which option she took, also likewise it ain't revealed in that write-up Maus did.Go fuck yourself mister strawman.
>>34398339first red alert foo
>>34398312They've already fielded Superheavies and Tanks armed with coilguns, Mammoth tanks or the more likely Apocalypse tanks shouldn't have you too scared.
>>34398363and now we might have a red metal gear in china!
>>34398328I hate to say it pal, but he ain't the one displaying a reading comprehension level of zero.
>>34398328What, the fact that she is sitting in our tank and turned around to face us at one point? I saw that, but frankly it's been so long that I can't even remember what the scorpion did or how it was any different from having a healwitch do it.
>>34398432the only difference between the two is that she'd be walking again with the Scorpion, as opposed to waiting 6-8 months to get a healwitch, though the Scorpion would fuck up her chances at getting a healwitch laterI really really hope she went for healwitch, then we can have fun pushing her around in a wheelchair which would be adorable and I'd hate for her to take the scorpion and it fuck her over just because she wanted to walk a few months sooner
>>34398432The Scorpion is an implant that is implanted alongside, and augments the spine. It's permanent, can't be removed, and this is the pre-alpha prototype. It would basically bypass weeks to months of waiting for a heal witch to become available, with the obvious downsides that it can't be removed and that it's highly experimental.
Technically, don't she on tank as opposed she on strikers mean she opted to wait for healwitch?Either way Top is here and we'll have fun time.
>>34398505Can't be removed yet. Those russians are crazy with the cybernetics, considering Konstantina and the other witches.
>>34398537No the tonks have witch integration suites.
>>34398505>can't be removedWhich is totally fucking bullshit, we've got magical healwitches and they can't do minor spinal surgery properly? A friend of mine lost 3 inches of his spine when his truck went over an IED, and they replaced that with prosthetics and he's walking again fine now, and this was a decade ago.
>>34398537Not really.The scorpion just means she could be in strikers if she wanted to but all 4 of our vehicles need to be crewed with a witch anyways. She still could have taken the op and got in the tank. So as not to be a liability under battlefield conditions, say if we needed to bail or something.
>>34398257....I think we read or got something different when I read the threads.But I'm interested in seeing Wittman again though the anger at her is a bit much
>>34398595people need to let the fuck go
>>34398594If we need to bail, then having legs or not, your getting hauled out of the tonk, standard procedure during a bail from a KO'd tonk is to assume severe leg wounds and trauma and treat them as such.So it wouldn't be any less of a liability than a able bodied crewman.
>>34398595I am both amazed and amused about how butthurt people are about that one scene even to this day.If she wants to start this clusterfuck up again then I'm perfectly willing to answer her, but I'm also willing to bury the hatchet too.
>>34398643Thats probably just one example. Imagine trying to scramble the tank on an emergency sortie if she didnt take the op. That'll take a bit of time to not injure her.
>Bite the bullet, remain professional“Well, fuck. This is gonna suck.” You say to no one in particular, even though you're still on comms with Siegel.The rest of the drive is quiet, ending with your recon elements making contact with 7th Panzers picket line. Your Achillies and Myrmidon vehicles gain quite a few looks, though nothing you're not familliar with already. You're called out of your tank by an Unterfeldwebel who, other than his lack of clean uniform, looks the very model of a Whermacht nco. “Hallo, herr captain, ve are quite glad to see you! Ve've taken a beating here, being ze only armored unit on zis line. I zuspekt Dame Wittmann vill vant to zee you on ze bounce. I vill haff my signaller radio your arrival. You can park your tanks right over zere, unt maybe eat vhile ve vait.”At first, you're not sure if the guy is putting his accent on for you. Then you remember that most, if not all Germans are fiercely proud to be German, so he probably was hamming up a bit. Oh well, honestly, you can't say you wouldn't do the same if they were in your country. You nod your approval and guide Hans over to your company landing, where Ooishi and Siegel are already out of their strikers and pitching their tents. The divisional camp is quite spartan, at first glance. Trenches have been ripped into the ground, between which Leo 2a4 and 2a3's sit in fighting positions, ready to repel any attack headed towards them. Outside of that, everything seems to be just like on a training op. There's no hard latrine, no DFAC, not a hint of a rec area. The Germans mean business.After ripping halfway through your first of what would probably be many MREs, the very same NCO approaches you. 1/2
>>34398663Same, we shouldn't let one moment of her foolishness colour and influence the rest of things poorly
>>34398663Same here, what she did was a prick move and we even though Jake does not know much of jet combat, we saw our brother die (before we found out what happened) and for her to say something like that, it was a prick move.However it's been a long while since it happened and we did our best not to have our squad killed (with mix results) if she is willing to let bygones be bygone, I'm happy for it.If she is going to act like a bitch then we'll answer in kind of just request a transfer
>>343987412/2“Herr Bishop! Dame Wittmann vill zee you now. Her quarters, just up ze line a bit. Ve take our veapons vith us up and down ze line, Captain. I suggest you do ze same.” “Weapons my ass, I drive a fucking tank. I'm taking my tank.” Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self. other.====FOILED BY THE CHARACTER LIMIT ONCE AGAAAAAIN
>>34398758 “Weapons my ass, I drive a fucking tank. I'm taking my tank.”
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.Let's not be an ass.Besides, if we need to, we can bring the tank later.
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.
Okay... I am pretty excited to see Whitmann here. I doubt she will thrilled to see us either, especially with brand new toy so we're even here. Just keep fucking professional, and prepare contingency if needed.
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.Be professional
>>34398758>[x] Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to selfunfortunately you cannot take a tank to a meeting
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.Jesus Christ just do it people, this meeting is going to be tense enough.Let's prove we can follow orders without looking like an entitled baby.
>>34398758>[x] Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.Lets not start this off poorly, if there's bullshit Anderson can just axe someone.
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.Professionalism HO!Yo Maus, which option did Top go with?please be healwitch please be healwitch please be healwitch
>>34398758> “Weapons my ass, I drive a fucking tank. I'm taking my tank.”
>>34398758 Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self
>>34398758>[x] Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.>>34398663IIRC we already ripped her a new one when it actually happened. If she still holds a grudge about it then we'll be the bigger man and stay professional. Make her seem like a petty bitch instead of both of us being one.
>>34398799Sure you can Anon! I mean really who's going to try and stop a tank.
>>34398758> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.They've been pretty polite so far.
 Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.No need to show-drive our babies around like this.
So, at some point we need to try and fine an ax of some kind for Anderson.
>>34398888He probably already has one or several.
>>34398842Well, I don't mind staying professional even if this does flare up, but I'm rather worried about the tempers of everyone else here...
>>34398908Were totally fine and cool with things anon, it only seemed like one anon who lost his top earlier
I just remember that thing with fronk, do we have some LAW or other RPG? Technically its a weapon... And more subtle than tank.
HOLY SHIT THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENINGHAHA, TIME FOR TONKS
>>34398904not with him he doesn't
>>34398818if that was teh case wouldn't she better served soemwhere other than the meat grinder?
>>34399086you are LAAAAAAAAAATE!
> Grab shotgun, tighten armor, find Anderson, grumble to self.You look up at your tank, then at the Unterfeldwebel. His eyes go wide for a moment, before you break a smile, accompanied with “Naaahhhh”.You do, however, climb up on your vehicle, fishing down under your seat for your super shorty and sabre, making sure to grab your PASGT and NOT the Achillies' integrated helmet. That'd just look silly. Making sure your armor is tightened down over your chest, you hop off of the vehicle. “One more second Sargeant, I've gotta go find my XO and let him know what's going on.”The German nods, crossing his hands behind him. “Ve are not in a rush, Herr Bishop.” You find Anderson sharpening a tomahawk, sitting just on the ramp of one of the Myrmidons. “Jesus, I thought you were kidding about the axe thing.” For his part, he just looks up and smirks.“Well, either way. I have to go meet with 'Dame Wittmann.' Company is yours.” Anderson nods, adding “Luck, sir. Holler if you need me” before setting back to his work at hand. Say what you will about the man's social skills, he damn sure takes care of his gear.The walk to Wittmann's tent is relatively uneventful, though you and Unterfeldwebel Plattz hit it off well. Turns out his family have been in the Panzer Korps since their inception, and he's probably got a better running knowledge of soviet vehicles and how to kill them than anyone else you've ever met. Then again, when you've been fighting them for this long, it'd be a surprise to meet someone who didn't know how to kill enemy armor that well.“Ah, here ve are, Herr Captain. I vill vait outside for you, ja?”
>>34399328never mind then, he did actually bring an ax
>>34399328You exhale before pulling the flap back and stepping in.Inside, Wittmann, looking almost exactly as you remember her, looks up from a desk where neatly organized stacks of paper sit. The ice hasn't drained out of her blood, you can tell.“Captain Bishop. It's good to see you again.” “Aw man, it's gonna be like that?” “FUCK YOU WHORE, WE OUT, GONNA FIGHT THE WAR ON OUR TERMS YEAAAAAAAHHH” “I uh. You too?” other
>>34399348> “I uh. You too?”Ok Maus, that second option made me laugh.

>>34399348> “I uh. You too?”
>>34399348> “I uh. You too?”Wow, Wittmann is being professional, who woulda thunk it?

Funny how everyone forgets that she outranks us now.
>>34399577How do you figure that?
>>34399594Oberstleutnant is equivalent to Lt.Col
>>34399577We didn't forget, we just don't care.She may be giving us orders now, but she's not in our chain of command, coalition forces don't work like that.
>>34399531this, for da lulz
>>34399477saluting on the front sounds like someone is asking for a sniper
>>34399606Oh, right, THERE we go.Sebastion was great.
>>34399602No, the bit where we forgot that she outranks us. Don't you try and teach German to a German.
>>34399632We're inside a tent man.And frankly if a sniper is this far into lines then he's either Simo Fucking Hayah or things have really deteriorated.

>>34399670I knew it was Disney, and I was thinking it was the Little Mermaid, but my memory was fuzzy enough I couldn't be sure.
>>34399656We aren't exactly on the front lines, and it's pretty obvious which one the commander is.
>>34399686Yeah we are on the front anon, have you not been reading?
/tg/ - Disney Musicals
>>34399740No, we aren't exactly. We're in the fucking divisional HQ! Besides, do you understand just how many people are in and out of the CO's office/tent? It's pretty fucking obvious which one it is.
>>34399799More likely brigade.
>>34399829>The divisional campI suggest you reread.
>>34399861...Well, I stand corrected.Holy shit that a huge jump. Well, I mean a bigger jump than I had thought before.
>>34398741>Then you remember that most, if not all Germans are fiercely proud to be GermanAlternate histories are weird sometimes
> “I uh. You too?”You're a bit taken aback at first, really. Last time you had seen this wench, she'd just tried convincing you that you were a glory hound because your brother refused to die without fighting. Where was this polite demeanor all that time ago?“I um. You too, Oberstleutnant. ARSOF reports as ordered.” You finish, pulling your papers from their pocket again. She motions for you to set them on her desk. After reading them, she sets them on the edge, just teetering.“Do you see what your papers are doing, there, captain?” You say nothing.“They're feathering. Just right on the edge. On one side, safety. On the other, rock-total-bottom. Just as I feel your career is doing. You've apparently done amazing things, which I haven't seen. You've also done some things that got your people hurt and killed. I will not tolerate that with my men.“Captain, while under assignment here, you will be perfect. You will not step out of line, nor will your men, or the Heer will toss you out of this war just as quickly as you came into it. And I swear upon every breath that I take, if you so much as even think about reaching for a medal or hunting for glory, I will personally collect the debt of whoever you kill doing so. Do I make myself clear?”Somewhere in the ambush dressing down, you'd gone to the position of attention. Not that you really liked it, but she IS your CO.“Clear, ma'am.”“Good. Tomorrow we'll be conducting a reconnissance movement. ARSOF will be at the tip of the spear. Move your men into fighting positions around Underfeldwebel Plattz' location. I suppose for now you'll be the officer in charge of sector two. My men are very familiar with this area, if they say something out of place, I recommend you listen.”“Yes ma'am.”“Dismissed, Hauptmann.”You click your heels, before spinning on them and wheeling out of the tent.Hunt for medals? Fucking. Please.
>>34399989NEXT TIME ON DRAGONBALL Z
>>34399989Alright fellas, that's it for the night!It was fun, for sure. Keep posted on the twitter/IRC/SW89 threads for my next run time, though you can expect it to be on the weekends what with my school schedule. Hopefully homework doesn't ambush me again...also, I forgot to upload this image last post. Oops.
>>34399989Nope, still the a complete and utter cunt.
>>34399989>You've also done some things that got your people hurt and killedThere is only so much you can fucking do when ambushed by soviet shielded raligun-toting supertanks, dammit>>34400034Toodles
>>34399989Eh, what happens happens.
>>34400034Thanks for the thread Maus.When does Wittman stop being a cunt?
>>34400059Yeah we should have had a choice to respond to that remark.I'm half tempted in case of another ambush not bothering to save her or if so say "What happened to being perfect?"
>>34400059To be fair, we should've probably run when they lolnoped the airstrike.
>>34399989>which I haven't seenYeah, key part there. Maybe if you were you wouldn't be on your high horse.
>>34400078When she's a smear across the ground.
>>34400034Thanks for running Maus, good to have you back. So how long till we get a chance to show Whittman up?
>>34400097Nah, anon, gotta be when she's riding us while we're inside our tonk
>>34400093And let them destroy a whole Saudi brigade and halting the whole offensive? We had the overall strategic goals in mind.
>>34400093I don't disagree with you, though from what I remember while their sensors/reaction time was fishy it wasn't enough to herald the fucktrain on its own
>>34400093Not that anon but if I remember right, I was under the impression that they would have caught us if we ran thus denying us first strike and/or gone off and slaughtered a bunch of friendlies that we were supposed to be watching out for.
>>34400078When she gets punched in hers.I can't believe people actually like her.
>>34400117That better mean that she's being ground to paste beneath our treads.Bitch doesn't deserve Bishop dick.
>>34400078When we fuck her.
>>34400093If I remember that events correctly, I don't think we could have safely disengaged them. We could have possibly took a higher casualty rate than we did try that.
>>34400143No anon, it means what >>34400146 saidI sense some hostility in you anon, how about you untwist your panties
>>34400146No, no. When we manage to impress her, get on her good side, and turn her down when she wants to fuck
>>34400125I totally forgot about that, they probably would've made mincemeat of the Saudis.>>34400127>>34400147Apologies, it's been a long time.
>>34400161How about you put your dick back into your pants and stop being a waifu-faggot?
>>34400166And then lovingly console her when we find her an utter mess in her quarters, we spend an evening with her, holding her as she cries, then we get the schnaps out, and wake up 6 8 hours later, with her naked and ontop of us, with us still inside her
...Over already? Well, better than not i guess. >>34400078After we saved her arse from tight spot.Hopefully.
>>34400184How about you just stop being a faggot fullstop.I'm having fun here, you're the one that can't let something go and move on, exactly like Wittman.
>>34400184Awwww, looks like someone has a terminal case of butthurt.
I was willing to give her a second chance until she made that SNIDE ass remark about the Mid East. It was a mesh that couldn't be helped.Now if it was about hte kitty hawk.... well she might have a point there, though Jake'd still be pretty pissed.
>>34400189No, no schnitzel. None.
>>34400232Jesus christ anon, let things rest and focus on showing her how wrong she is instead of being a little vindictive bitch about it.
>>34400232Well, that depends on how many details she's gotten about that operation. The only thing that she apparently knows is that we've done good, and she's operating from a position of bias.
>>34400232Oh Jesus Christ, not this again. What could we have done with the Kitty Hawk? Because please I don't even remember how we could have saved it.Still willing to give the second chance but barely clearly she has it easy so far in her new command and is getting cocky about it.
>>34400147It wasnt disengage.The tanks were chasing our recon element of Sushi and Spiegal. Short of abandoning them, we had the choice of having them run into and slaughter the saudi guards unit or run back to us.
>>34400283Uh, considering that she's been constantly on the front lines and some of those promotions were done on the field, I doubt she's been sipping coffee and chuckling evilly this whole time.
>>34400277Fucking this, she knows nothing other than we did good work, and some of our people got hurt and killed, our work was classified, and she won't find out more without the brass feeding it to her.So let the fucking thing rest and work on showing her how wrong she is.
OI MAUSWhich option did Top go with?
>>34400232So in your attempt to justify Whittmann still being a Cunt you choose the very case IN-POINT that Frank followed the mission to the T, Kill the Flying Aircraft Carrier. You can in no way say for certainty that the Dreads would have gone down if we used the Harpoons on them instead of the Flying Carrier nor can you say that the Kitty Hawk would still be floating.
>>34400303True but easy missions and playing safe is what I'm assuming. Also for the fact her superiors got killed and she was next up the bat. IIRC Saudi was something that couldn't be helped and we tried our best to minimize the causalities.
>>34400303Yeah. If anything, having more men under her command and being responsible for their lives is probably why she's doubled-down, since there's so much more at stake if somebody fucks up
>>34400310Man, reading it in retrospect, that more or less neatly fits in with her preestablished narrative that we're a medal-seeking glory hunter.No wonder she acted like she did.
>>34400336The scorpion. They don't let people in wheelchairs into combat zones.
>>34400363Says you, it was very clearly stated that regardless of which option she picked, she'd be in our tank.
>>34400363Thats not true. Doc Light himself suggested that she could be a MSO in one of our vehicles even if she didn't take the scorpion.
>>34400310That makes sense and I agree. Still being a bit of a bitch about it but ignorance. (I hope that is the right word)
>>34400348Frontlines, constantly, and I doubt Command would babysit a veteran witch like her and send her only on the easy stuff.And she can't exactly know what exactly happened in Saudi.>>34400361>reacted
>>34400386He outright said she would be
>>34400361Still acting like a cunt (even though I agree) and for Jake to be mad after this is very much in character.
>>34398257Jeez mate, did Jake rape your dog or something?Cool the hateboner.
>>34400361Maybe we are kind of blood thirsty and adrenaline junkie. Fronk too, until his...'talent' get better on him.But medal chaser? Please.
>>34400386Light is a scientist, not the officer who would have to sign off on sending a witch into a warzone in a metal can filled with explosives that she can't escape on her own
>>34400283>>34400346If people didn't treat teh mission like a video game and rushed towards the boss (basically leaving everything else to their fates), things would have been better. It was pretty blatant glory hounding from anon and when it went tits up, people started making various 'justifications' to cover up the fact they fucked up (as is the norm on the internet)In contrast what happened with the Russian Supertank could not be helped. There was no glory hunting but rather trying to minmize the damage from a bad scenario.
>>34400346Not to mention the fact that the Flying Carrier was packing enough planes and heat to destroy even the Kitty Hawk by itself or even more of the ships instead.What happened to it was unfortunately but it was a bad situation no matter the choice
>>34400410Dude, the problem is that she doesn't know that. We know that for a fact, but she's not exactly omniscient.
>>34400417Actually he's the guy the officers need to sign off on her paperwork for exactly those reasons.So yeah, your full of shit.
>>34400418Again, you didn't answer my question what could have been done?Your just criticizing our decision without any means beside "Anons wanted to he a hero"We were facing a shitload of planes a flying carrier and two or three dreads. What was your plan going against that.
>>34400410>kind of blood thirsty and adrenaline junkieThis leads to us getting medals and putting ourselves and our unit in harm's way.Is that really any different from chasing medals?But more importantly, if Command didn't tell Wittmann about the circumstances around the one instance where we lost soldiers, then how likely is it that they also failed to mention the SOVIET SUPERTANKS being deployed to a fucking satellite ally, and which apparently haven't shown up yet in one of the more traditionally important theaters?Can we tell Wittmann about them, or would that be a breach of security?
>>34400418You are still not telling us the plausible way that the Kitty Hawk would still be afloat, sure perhaps if we focused on the Dreads right at the start it would have been different but the Flying Carrier would have bugged out as soon as she lost her escorts and we would have had no way of hitting her as the Harpoons would have been used on the Dreads. She'd also have most of her fighter and witch escort left.>>34400478There was two dreads.
>>34398257uh, whatwhen did we do anything remotely close to what you just posted?I'll give you the "she was smug about proving Jake wrong" part, except she was wrong in that regard. The only reason Frank did that was because if he didn't fly in and intercept, the entire mission would have been a failure, along with the accompanying deaths of several witches.
>>34400393Perhaps, and maybe your right I just think she went on mission or situations that didn't require major decision other then play it safe though.Not saying she is a bad commander but she didn't face supertanks, Vampires, Soviet superwitches, and overwhelming numbers like the Bishops had.Any of them would have caused casualties, we did our best to minimize it with a crippled Sushi and losing good men in one of our tanks. Frustrating but considering the alternatives we prevented death.
>>34400478Trying to cut down some of the fighters so the allied planes could futher clear things out and thus reduce the need for the Kitty hawk to get into range.Even if they didn't have the firepower to decisively damage the dreads, the ally planes could have at least kept them busy.
>>34400514>if Command didn't tell Wittmann about the circumstances around the one instance where we lost soldiers, then how likely is it that they also failed to mention the SOVIET SUPERTANKSThey didn't tell her shit or she would know the whole story, which she doesn't.>Can we tell Wittmann about themIf we've got clearance to read her in, then yes, which is something I think we should do.
>>34400514>SOVIET SUPERTANKSMaybe that's why the general sent us here? He expects Soviet supertanks to be in this sector so he wants to see how the American superweapons stack up against the Soviet ones?
>>34400540>a crippled SushiTop ain't Sushi
You guys just committed a horrible sin.You've gone full Kitty Hawk.
>>34400545Kitty Hawk and her battlegroup were already in range of the Russian Air Fleet.
>>34400514Uh, that kinda different.On that regard we don't exactly think about medals, only the thrill from action.
>>34400442Eh. I still think it would be a horrific risk to have her in the tank without use of her legs. The scorpion isn't an optimal solution, but it's the better choice imo
>>34400581yep....fuck it I am going back to star trek online
>>34400560uh, we chose to come to Germany.
>>34400545That would have lead to more planes being shot down however and the flying carrier can still send, refuel, rearm any planes. not to mention the armament it had could have swatted other fighters out of the sky.Also that still left the dreads still attacking the Kittyhawk
>>34400588>but it's the better choice imoAnd you are flat out wrong.Being inside the tank is the best place for her, and the scorpion is a fucking terrible idea that all but cripples her for life, for no good reason, because she'd be in our tank even if she did pick the scorpion, which I hope to god she didn't
>>34400613are you basing that on Meta Knowledge or did you not bother rereading the threads before posting?
>>34400578Sorry, it's been a long time and my memory is fuzzy. >>34400551What makes you think she doesn't know. not trying to pick a fight and I'm in the party that believes she only read report numbers rather then the detail but I'm curious
>>34400644Basing it entirely on the threads, she would be in the tank regardless of which option she went with, and waiting for the healwitch is the smart move and the better move long term
>>34400605because more important theater of operations and/or some have boners for Wittman.>>34400606That's one possibility compared to the certainity of mass allied shot-downs that the choosen option would result in.
>>34400581Well then lets have another point of debate, Rockets or Fuel?
>>34400654>What makes you think she doesn't know.The fact that in the situation we were in, the BEST possible result we could expect going up against those supertanks, is the result we got, and she wouldn't throw that in our face if she actually knew what happened.She knows only the smallest bits from scuttlebutt, as simple as that
>>34400533>The only reason Frank did that was because if he didn't fly in and intercept, the entire mission would have been a failure, along with the accompanying deaths of several witches.Except that's not what was shown on TV. All that was shown on the television, and wasn't commented on until later, AFTER the big fight between Wittmann and Jake, was Frank, apparently alone, flying into the middle of a huge Soviet air formation.There was absolutely no context given in what was shown except "Frank Bishop flies into the middle of enemy air squadrons without support".We, the players, knew that. But NPC's, who were just seeing it for the first time with no commentary explaining what was happening, would just see a gloryhound trying to go up against incredible odds in order to win a medal, when he should have been retreating.Neither Jake nor Wittmann knew the reasons for Frank's suicidal charge; to Wittmann, it proved Jake's assertion that the Bishops are not gloryhounds. To Jake, it was Frank preferring to stand and fight, when escape was no longer an option.As for what happened after, Frank continues to rack up medals and awards, not dispelling Wittmann's assessment. The problem with exemplary bravery and competence is that it's difficult to separate it from medal-seeking (so long as things work out) because we can't get inside the head of the person to know WHY they did what they did.
>>34400683Rawkits, every time all the time.
>>34400714Yep, we just gotta be professional and pull neo bitchtits out of the fire, save her ass and sit her down for a long talk followed by some well deserved drinks.
>>34400714Yea, I can see both sides here like this. At this point theres nothing we can do but suck it up and be a fucking professional. Our attitude will only come through on the field and not through words.
>>34400605Yeah, but someone else determined the sector and part of the frontline we would be sent to.We would have been useful at any place: Mid East, they have confirmed Soviet supertank presence.Europe, expected Soviet supertank deployment.China, intel pointing to Chinese Shagohod/Metal Gear deployment.Whichever theater we chose, we would have been thrown at a superweapon.
>>34400675so you didn't reread the threads, and are basing this off of memory.Thing is, I reread thread 20 right before hopping into this one. Dr Light tells us that the Scorpion is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.He never said it was worse, only permanent. Also, he said that the chimpanzees that were given the scorpion were stronger than the ones without, at the cost of earning the ire of the unaugmented chimps. The only real problem I can see with the scorpion is if it has a defect and doesn't do its intended job. So long as it does its job, it has no real problems.
>>34400714This and very unfortunate for us.
>>34400714>to Wittmann, it proved Jake's assertionAw, fuck.I meant>to Wittmann, it DISproved Jake's assertion
>>34400786Though we only know China situation 'very' recently, meta-wise.
>>34400787>The only real problem I can see with the scorpion is if it has a defect and doesn't do its intended jobDifferent anon, but didn't Light say this was the pre-alpha prototype (meant for humans)?Or was this the alpha build?
>>34400813Sorta wish we were in the pacific theatre.Imagine our tanks going against BEST KOREA METAL GEAR.
>>34400786and the japs might use fucking anthrax!
>>34400787it is not even tested on humans, and you want to stick it on someone critical to our company?your fucking retardedof fucking course it will have problems in field trials, the FNH Mk.16 I got issued to test split in fucking half in the middle of a goddamned firefight and you want to shove this shit into her spine?
>>34400714My fine gentleman of African descent.
>>34400835Top would have been the first human trials for it>>34400787>it has no real problems.>a permanent solution to a temporary problem.You are fucking stupid anon, there's no convincing or educating you otherwise.
>>34400756>>34400778>>34400783>>34400794So, can we at least all agree that, assuming Wittmann has the proper authorizations, Jake tells her the whole story concerning the battle in the desert, and that any other option would have resulted in worse casualties among ourselves or our allies?Because I really can't see a better alternative than what we chose to do, and I'd really like to see if there was a better way.
>>34400852That is Pierce Job.When Raide-Red holding off Soviet/Chinese super witches, Pierce and Rex will battle Metal Gear with C4 and Stringers. And Railgun, if they exist in portable form here.
>>34400786But Europe is the theater where it is closest to defeat the Russains if I recall and hopefully end the war (in my mind) if we went to any other theater we would have disabled a vital resource but Moscow/Stalin will keep on running. >>34400679Possibility? that is nearly goddamn likely. Frank and Merlin were just one small element in a huge clusterfuck of a battle. If it wasn't the Kittyhawk it would have been some order poor witches or ships and planes. >>34400701Maybe she would? IDK doesn't say of what she knows but I do agree just wondering why?
>>34400902Na, let her keep thinking she's superior. Then when we prove to be a good asset and/or save her ass we tell her the truth.
>>34400902Honestly? Don't bother with it.
>>34400904then jetstream raikov cuts red up! and kidnaps pierce!
>>34400902Honestly, I don't think it'll solve everything, there's quite a bit of bad blood at this point.But it'll certainly be a step. We'll also need a source other than us to verify it to her too.
>>34400902I'm not sure if that will work. From our mouths, it'll be like cheap justification to our actions. No, it'll have a greater impact if it was one of our crew that outed the incident.Theres also security to consider, she might not be cleared for the information.Our only choice really is to shut up and take it like a bishop until proven otherwise.
>>34400902Telling her will only help when we SHOW her she's wrong, we gotta do that first, then we can talk about it.
>>34399989This is before the Battle of Berlin, right? Wonder how she's going to feel about her units rolling in to aid Jean-Luc's in what should have been in every right a suicidal death charge but wasn't in part due to a "gloryhound" controlling the air.>>34400904Or just have the Comanche missile spam the hell outta it.
>>34400902....i don't think even that will changed her mind much.Better to see us in action saving her arse and unit than just petty talks.
>>34400902She would have to ask first or shove something in our face.I hope she doesn't know the full picure if she did and still only focused on the losses then I'm afraid there is no redemption for her
>>34400935>there's quite a bit of bad blood at this point.there is one biased perspective that hasn't had the chance to been shown otherwise, that is fucking lightyears away from being irredeemable, we just gotta do like >>34400951 says
>>34400835he said that Top would be the first American given one.Not human, American.Pretty sure they're either past or deep enough in to the testing phase to be confident that it'll work.
>>34400982so they're testing it on soviet pows?
>>34400954The Comanche already bailed out with Ghosthawk when Metal Gear arrive, or already downed.>>34400931Not in Janice and Tarin presence!
>>34400954>This is before the Battle of Berlin, right?I have no idea anon, thats a good question, we don't know when we are.Maus, mind clarifying?
>>34400925>>34400930>>34400949>>34400951>>34400961>>34400965But shouldn't we tell her there ARE Soviet supertanks somewhere out there?I mean, we can provide drawings of the hull shape, so that panzers know when to fucking pull out without even trying to fight until they have a massive numerical advantage.I do find it a little odd that Stalin would have sent them to Iraq, rather than using them to finish off NATO, but maybe that was Putin throwing a wrench into the Soviet plans.
>>34400979I might've phrased that wrong. I hardly think that she's irredeemable, but my point is that it'll take effort, from both sides.Yes, that includes being patient with her.
>>34400995they will have to deal with VOLGEN THUNDER CRASH!!!
>>34400982who else would be given an american super secret technology?she would be the first anon, stop grasping at straws>>34401003>But shouldn't we tell her there ARE Soviet supertanks somewhere out there?if we have the clearance for it, yes, and if we can, then we can help our panzerbro's by teaching them how to fight them
>>34401003She'd have been briefed already if she was cleared. When we encounter them on the field of battle, we can tell her then.
>>34401003>But shouldn't we tell her there ARE Soviet supertanks somewhere out there?If she's got the clearance or we're not under NDA type of shit.
>>34400991would YOU test an experimental medical device known to increase the strength of those who use it on your enemies?Nah, more likely Japan or another allied nation was testing it on naturally injured personnel or civilians.
>>34401003Only when we are either get some clarification they are in the area or if we see them around.
>>34401003>I do find it a little odd that Stalin would have sent them to Iraq, rather than using them to finish off NATO, but maybe that was Putin throwing a wrench into the Soviet plans.Anon, its common sense to use them in a proxy skirmish for field testing, its what we do now, its what everyone does, you don't send your experimental units straight to the front, thats stupid.
>>34401028>>34401031>>34401033>only if she's clearedFair enough.The vibe I was getting was to not tell her at all until we've had a chance to prove ourselves.I'm glad to be wrong here.
>>34401054A slightly ironic statement considering where we are now, but hey
>>34401038>Nah, more likely Japan or another allied nation was testing it on naturally injured personnel or civilians.Military R&D don't work that way anon.
>>34401054>thats stupid.>StalinI don't know, knowing him, it sounds plausible.
>>34401066If she's been cleared to know about our fancy new toys but not about the enemy ones there is some serious ass-backwardness in allied command
>>34401067our tonks have already been field tested, we did that back home, thats what the write-up Mouse wrote was
>>34401038For procedures that might cripple the patient if it goes wrong?Maaaaybe.
>>34400996I'd assume it's before due to it being "Early Spring", the battle didn't happen till later into spring but that's purely guesstimation on my part of my understanding of the timeline which was rightly fucked with the time spent at Barin. My best current guess, Frank and Katya are in Paris during mid July- early August and we spent about two months at Barin plus two week on the Mercy.
>>34401088>some serious ass-backwardness in allied commandSoooo exactly the truth..
>>34401054Well that will make sense considering we saw Dreds, Flying Carriers in the Pacific/Alaskaand Vampires in Japan/China front
>>34401028are you trolling, or are you misinterpreting what I post this badly? And also, what the fuck are you referring to by "american super secret technology"?
>>34401088Confirmed for never in the military.
>>34401088100% normal then?
>>34401113Is that how you spell Namek?
>>34401070have we actually proven that the Scorpion is developed by the military?
>>34401088Considering the fancy new toy is under her command yes she does need to know.Tanks she may not face yet and only a few encounters of it in various fronts thus far, then no she doesn't need to
>>34401113This is about right for Paris, mid to late summer, you spend most of the early part of summer at Barin.
>>34401155Who the fuck else do you think would fund and do the R&D work anon?
>>34401133"Score one to Military Intelligence"Sgt-Griggs
>>34401174well thats the timeline for SW89, but what about this? when are we currently at in this thread?
>>34401201Before the Battle of Berlin
>>34401174So this after the battle or Berlin or during Barin? in Tanks.Sorry about asking this
>>34401201Check the first post.>>34395445>European winter had set in strongly here, leaving snow on the ground even though it was early spring.
>>34401239thats all well and good, but I've still no fucking idea relative to everyfuckingthing else in this series, like >>34401233 said
>>34401201Dunno. *probably* pre-Berlin, but please don't take that as gospel just yet, I haven't really talked to maus. I'm just kinda piecing together stuff from what he and I have talked about.
>>34401178fund, yes. Actual R&D?Maybe.I agree that this is something that the military would use, but I don't see how the military is doing the actual research and development for it. Not saying that the Military isn't doing the R&D, just that I don't see how we have proof that they are, which opens up the beautiful can of worms called civilian R&D.
>>34401276Dude, the fucking cold war just went hot, with martians involved toothe only people touching this stuff would be the military, unless its contracted out by their behest to civvie outfits, like how DARPA works things outside of its inhouse projects
>>34401273Ghost I always wanted to ask you this but during the first Ice Quest when we comforted our crew.What were Mav and Goose doing and in what state also how did we help?
>>34401346oh jeeze dude, that's like, better than a year ago and in a block of notes IDK if I can even find. Give me a couple minutes to look.
>>34401409>better than a year agoYou mean almost two years ago, which by the way congrats. Strikers '89 turned 2 this past Saturday.
>>34401489wow, has it really been that long? sure doesn't seem like it. Well, either way, i found the old notebook, just gotta find that block of notes.
>>34401548Just how many notebooks have you filled for the quest?
>>34401489>Strikers '89 turned 2 this past Saturday.holy shit>>34401548I think its time for some birthday shopping
>>34401548Tell us some fun tidbits or trivia we never knew.Also, Maus.STORIES.
>>34401604Gotta get some cake and/or other assorted pastries for tomorrow.
>>34401651and clothes, and lingerie for the girls
>>34401548Sorry, I only had caught up during the busted flight with Katya and I always wanted to know but it was either ignored or I forgot to ask.
>>34401595One and parts of another, but I use them for more than just the quest- so it's like, block of quest notes, random snippets from the book of five rings or on war or something, notes from the most recent skype meeting, design notes for some things, notes for a half dozen tabletops, all jumbled together in little paragraph blocks with doodles inbetween.
>>34401644 I deadlifted 365 today after one week of stretching back out. Bam. >>34401201pre-BoB>>34398119I thought I had made it pretty clear, but apparently not. Sometimes that happens, whatever.Top augmented. The short I wrote was during the training cycle on the Achilles/Myrmidon vehicles.
>>34401548Well you did ended that thread early due to things, and it was left unresloved can you blame me for being curious?
>>34401973How much does Wittman know about the Saudi incident? Details or just numbers,
>>34401973So she did get augmented... Damn.
>>34401346So, bad news. the pages those notes should be on are damaged- I wanna say oil or something, they're all discolored and most of the ink is gone. The good news is, I left inline notes for myself in the document! Mav and Goose were on base, at the rec facility, trying to distract themselves, take their minds off it. When you'd have arrived, they'd have just sat down to watch TV with a bunch of pilots. Mav took it hard, but was clamping down on it for Goose's sake, because she felt she couldn't show what she was feeling in front of the kid. Goose, on the other hand, was probably processing it best- she didn't really interact with Frank much directly, didn't really know him like that, and to her it was sad, yeah, but it's like when your best friend's friend dies. You're sad, but really because of how your friend is taking it, ya know?
>>34402090Goose doesn't exist though she never appeared in Barin at all! Oh so Mav didn't break down?
>>34401973>Top augmentedGod fucking damnit.She better be able to get that ship removed and fixed later on.Also, that was not clear at all, it wasn't even mentioned in the slightest or implied or hinted at.well there goes that hope
>>34401973>Top augmentedreading comprehension faggot btfo
>>34402156not outwardly. she 'had to be strong' for Goose. ironically, had she broken down outwardly, Goose would have been the one consoling her- you'd have just been giving Goose some advice and letting her handle it.
>>34401973>I thought I had made it pretty clear, but apparently not.It wasn't mentioned at all.>Top augmented.God damnit.Please tell me she can get that thing removed and fixed with a healwitch later
>>34402189Anon, you only say that because he just revealed that, it was not even hinted at in the write-up
>>34402197Can someone tell me exactly why this scorpion thing is such a bad deal? As far as I can see, and from the info on it we've been given, there are no undesirable side-effects to expect.
>>34401973>Top augmented:(Well theres always hoping that it being the test and prototype means they can improve it/remove it and heal her up later, otherwise that fucking sucks.
>>34402243? I'm bitching about the fag going on about 'how the rest of us can't read'.
>>34402262>there are no undesirable side-effects to expect.Except for the fact that she is forever using a very unknown and untested prototype to walk and will never ever again walk without it working in perfect flawless condition which will never happen because its a fucking prototype?Totally no drawbacks at all.That was sarcasm if you can't tell
>>34402262She's stuck with an unreliable and unknown piece of tech holding her spine together for the rest of her life and can't get it removed because lol who the fuck knows all because she couldn't wait a few months.Its fucking bullshit that its permanent, especially with the tech and magic present in the setting, we had better spinal surgery techniques back 20 years ago that we apparently have with magic and experimental shit.Not being able to ever remove and heal it makes no sense at all.
>>34402394I got to agree that is bullshit! it would be lawsuit city if it could not be removed if it broke.
>>34402190I see, thank you.Sorry for asking you to dig this up but I had to know what had happened.
>>34402394it's 89 where apparently heal witches are stupidly rare and what few are thrown on the front lines
I love how half this thread isn't even on the quest.
>>34402543yet lawyers will be licking there chops when they hear about this device.
>>34402545welcome to strike witches quest enjoy your fucking stay!>>34402484>>34402545THIS!
>>34402190How tough is French Security at airports? Also does anything change in the Star Wars Trilogy due to Witches?Does Indianna Movies exist since Nazis aren't the bad guys?
MightyM0use >paralyzed from the waist downMightyM0use >combat situationMightyM0use the fuck kind of drugs are you smoking?
>>34402636>Does Indianna Movies exist since Nazis aren't the bad guys?Nazis are still there, competing with Martians as the go-to bad guys.Remember that the SS and Nazi apparatus were still purged from the Reich.
>>34402665the retarded kind!
>>34402713What about Star Wars I need to know due to reasons?
>>34402484She knew the risks. Would have had to sign wavers.>>34402394>unreliable and unknown That's speculation. For all we know it's basically reliable, and as the years pass further work can be done on it.>Its fucking bullshit that its permanentWe have no idea what the details are. For all we know such dramatic modification was made that it'd be impossible to easily reverse.And we don't have better spinal surgery techniques. Spine damage is still very, very serious business, particularly when she was as badly fucked up as she was.
>>34402779the wwf got to be so fucking different
>>34402665Where did that come from and why isn't he posting in the thread?
>>34402815Irc. Why not?
>>34402804Space Witches? Strikes with Tie Fighters and X-wing engines?
>>34402803>We have no idea what the details are. For all we know such dramatic modification was made that it'd be impossible to easily reverse.That is not how you develop medical tech, you ALWAYS plan for removal and replacement, without fail, and to do otherwise is unethical and fucking stupid, the kind of shit that gets you banned from practicing medicine for life.
>>34402515Hey, no problem. >>34402543well, it's a combo deal, they're both rare and in very, very high demand. It works out so that, in most cases, you're not going to get one unless either someone incredibly important calls in favors, you happen to know one personally, or you happen to be someone incredibly important. And neurological damage is a whole different ballgame, too, requiring a specialist healwitch. >>34402636Tough, but not tough enough to stop the terrible duo, both of whom were raised very much as living weapons and are trained to such an exacting degree that they kinda freak Brigitte out. As in, she's legit worried about them. Nazis are very much still badguys. the major difference here is that, instead of WW2 removing that particular cancer, the people of Germany did it themselves when it became apparent the SS was still waging der fuhrer's war instead of throwing their entire effort into beating the invaders. And as for star wars, no. that was a long long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, anon.

>>34402854cocaine is a hell of a drug AND HE WAS DOING IT BY THE TRUCK LOAD BEFORE PROMOS!
>>34402804Vince is milking this war like how he did with the first Iraq war.
>>34402852Okay, Thanks that gives me some ideas now. I appreciate the info.It was either asking that or Looney Toons
>>34402842They may well have plans for removal, but perhaps the implantation would essentially make the damage permanent. Like, the equivalent of having to amputate a limb when you don't have access to antibiotics. The treatment exists, but the quick solution precludes it.
>>34402825what about star craft or war craft
>>34402907Do you think there's witch wrestling?
>>34402956oh god ya!
>>34402948STOP THAT LINE OF QUESTIONING AT ONCE.I KNOW WHO YOU ARE. YOU WILL *NOT* RUIN STARCRAFT FOR ME.FUUUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOU
>>34402956Vince would be using heal witches BIG TIME!>>34402979huhuhuhuhuhu
>>34402924You know we can regrow amputated segments and reattach new grown limbs to them completely repairing the damage the amputation did these days right?imagine what a healwitch can do with stemcells
>>34402979>Hell. It's about time, nano~
>>34402852Can you imagine Natalya/Dead watching Bugs Bunny or Tom and Jerry?
>>34402979Wait, that means there wouldn't be more Bronze League Heroes. Noooooooooooooooooo
We've doubled the actual posts in the thread with just post thread chatter...
>>34402852What about regular medical science or is it due to heal witches that the development on the medical field had stunted
>>34402979Ready to rolllll out, nanodesu~
>>34403237siege tank witches enough said
>>34402948Warcraft wouldn't have changed, completely fantasy setting. Besides, it's not out yet, we're only just into 90. Starcraft... I intensely doubt it'd have changed. It also won't drop in setting for, what, another six-seven years?>>34403030It'd probably just be a letdown, to be honest. >>34403166No, medical science actually is more advanced on the high end- the influx of martian technology saw to that. And major shooting wars do tend to amp up the speed of medical progress with regards to trauma treatment and prosthesis, so. Your average, everyday treatment is pretty much what we know, though.
>>34403281five years I think I remember ad's in a pc mag around that time
>>34403281>No, medical science actually is more advanced on the high endThen why the fuck is the stupid scorpion permanent? That makes no sense
>>34403315You'd have to ask maus. Only thing I can think of is that the procedure to remove it is incredibly difficult and/or expensive, but scorpion isn't my thing.
>>34403344>difficult and/or expensiveWhich are negated by healwitches and the supporting environment the characters are in...
>>34403366Please give it a rest, jesus christ
>>34403281That is kind of surprising> Though I imagine she'll take it literally or question the purpose of it?So 1990 = 2014 in medical tech?
>>34403366Dude, shut the fuck up and let Maus run things, its been one thread for fucks sake.
>>34403281So out of all the girls that like Frank, Ice is the most experienced/lewd? or is there someone else?
>>34403366Dude, stop. People are just not giving a fuck at this point.
>>34403366Actually, it's already been stated repeatedly throughout the entirety of SWQ, SW89, and TW89 that even with magic and improved technology, it doesn't mean that recovery from serious injury is always perfect or possible.Of course, you don't know this because you don't read these threads for the actual story, you're just hoping you can fap to some hot hot (FADE TO BLACK)Please go and stay go.

>>34403975she is a monster who killed a black ops team with a fucking flintlock rifle and steel rods!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFkdRR3SsZo
>>34404003Not metal rods, wooden dowels. She was using the dowels as ramrods to load the flintlock with flechettes and put them all over the place so she wouldn't need to carry one. None of the operators seemed to be wearing plates so their vests didn't do much for them.
