You grunt, leaning back in your seat. "Any idea who those punks were?"It had already been at least a week after that whole affair in Ustio. That little "air show" you and Amy had with those unknown hostiles over Directus had practically become world famous, with it showing up in news broadcasts and streaming sites all over the world. Officially, the Ustians were covering it up as all part of the show, and by and large, most people seemed to accept it. Only the conspiracy theorists and actual aces seemed to show any skepticism. However, what didn't help was the fact that you and Amy's role in the botched air show was already publicly available. You were in full lockdown mode as your mailbox was assaulted by wave after wave of mail.Ugh. Thank god Mom somehow still hasn't realized anything."Actually, we do have an idea." Samantha says, interrupting your train of thought. "Really? Does that mean we can stomp them?!" Lara says excitedly. "Whoa, settle down there!" Samantha chuckles. "Come on, we ain't got all day." Amy grumbles."Right, right." Samantha clears her throat. "We believe that the instigators were members of One Belka."(cont)
>>36866685You, Amy, and Lilian all wince, while Lara, who wasn't from the Osean continent, just looks around, confused."That what?" She blinks."One Belka is a terrorist group that formed shortly after the end of the Belkan War." Samantha explains. "They're an ultranationalist group that believes Belka should be restored to its pre-Federal Review borders. In the early years after the end of the war, they committed countless acts of violence against both military and civilian targets, but 20 years is a long time, and as memories of the war faded, so did their relevance.""Then this attack was them trying to make a comeback?" Lilian asks."Most likely." Samantha nods. "No claims of responsibility, though. Not surprising, since their stunt ended up being a huge failure.""So what are we going to do about it?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, as General Treister has said, we're going to -ahem- TOTALLY DEEEE-STROY THEM SCUMSUCKING SISSY BOYS." She says in an extremely accurate imitation of his voice and accent, causing all of you to laugh."So what are we doing?" You ask."Well, since OB has essentially declared war on us by attacking one of our own, we're going to be hitting them back, here." Samantha brings up a map of what you recognize as North Osea and points to a spot right on the northern border.The site of the former headquarters of Grunder Industries.>Why there?>Great. When do we leave?>Other
>>36866693>Why there?Why does Captcha keep thinking I'm a robot?
>>36866693>Great. When do we leave?Green light from tower.
>>36866693>Who's footing the bill for this?We're a PMC. We can't just fight our own wars. That'd be crazy.
>>36866693>>Why there? When do we leave?
>>36866724>inb4 you really are but you don't know, because Golgom made it that way
>>36866693>>Why there?"So what makes you sure its not intentional leaks intended to make us looked like a bad guy here?"
>>36866810Damn you MG! making out Big Gnome like that when I'm away!that means the sentai witches are delayed, right?
>>36866693>Why there?Also make sure Jaeger's Aquisiton team makes a through sweep of the complex for anything left by Grunder
>>36866685>Check FLGS>Have used copies of Unsung and Fires>Get back, check /tg/> Ace combat quest>pic related
>>36866829After Christmas.two comic for PJ xmas should be ready, no comic for '89 unfortunately but i'll make some xmas artwork for '89
>>36866693>Why there?Because that's where the Tunnel Between Belkas was?
>>36866862Eh, tis alright.I lament that I won't be there when you post them live though.Now wondering if Pixelfag and Shitscribbler are here today/tonight/this afternoon.
Present and accounted for, though I doubt I'll get much done tonight. But who knows, sleep is for the weak.
>>36866957Agreed man.Also, your dedication to the cause is appreciated.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBm2mz3IHoM
>>36866693"Why there?" You ask."We recovered wreckage from the planes you downed, and we found the serial numbers matched planes manufactured there." Samantha says. "We've also asked around the area, and people have been saying they've seen activity around the site, even though it's supposed to be abandoned.""Why would One Belka set up there?" Amy asks."Well, after Osea raided and cleared the place out, there was no point staying, so they just boarded the place up and left. Where better to set up shop than an abandoned factory? Also, there's the fact that there's a very convenient tunnel cutting through the mountain range straight to Belka, making it a possible smuggling route.""I thought the Osean military blocked the tunnel?" You point out."It's been YEARS since anybody's checked up on the site." Samantha responds. "Either way, Treister is pissed. Managed to convince Osea to let us operate, but they won't be providing any support due peace terms with Belka preventing deployment of troops at the border. Your job is provide air cover while our ground forces raid the place.">Sounds good. When do we leave?>I dunno, this sounds fishy...>Other
>>36867064>>Sounds good. When do we leave?We will protect our husband no matter what it takes.
>>36867064>I dunno, this sounds fishy...Hands up, whoever thinks there's a third party pulling the strings.
>>36867064>Sounds good. When do we leave?
>>36867064>I dunno, this sounds fishy...
>>36867064>Sounds fishy, but when do we leave?Oh no, there won't be any superplanes, ace squadrons or backstabbing gits on site, no ma'am.
>>36867064>>I dunno, this sounds fishy...
>>36867064>>Sounds good. When do we leave?
>>36867104Isn't there always in AC?
>>36867104>third partyDuh, when has ace combat not have a third party?>but wat about ace combat 2Shut up, alter-ego me.
>>36867155Or Ace Combat 4.
>>36867155You forgot about 4, 6, and X
>>36867111Rival ace squadrons are always half the fun. Killing a million mook planes just isn't the same as going toe-to-toe with a rival ace.
>>36867181>>36867185Heh, silly me.>XFellow Aurelian! It seems we won't see more Aurelians in the quest. Shame. Then again, the Aurelian/Leasath war hasn't started yet so meh
>>36867197The Yellows are really memorable for that role.Do you all think ISAF makes a aggressor squadron in the Yellow colors too far-fetched?
>>36867197I know boss. I was merely being sarcastic.
>>36867235Nah, I think it's a good idea actually. Gets the pilots in the right mindset.Also, I envy you guys for meeting Granger and Townes in PJ's. And for picking up point-defense lasers from the Laser General.
What would you guy's reckon Lillian's main color is. Green?
>>36867391Hmm....What goes well with an Angel motif?I guess Green and whites could work, IMO.
>>36867419White and light cyan
>>36867419>What goes well with an Angel motif?Blue and white, with some gold details.
>>36867064"Honestly, it sounds kinda fishy." You frown. "It sounds like a trap of some kind.""Maybe, but we can't ignore it." Samantha sighs. "Treister wants someone to punch, and Corporate thinks this is a great chance to flex Artemis' muscle.""Fine, we're just the grunts, anyways." You shrug. However, you still had reservations."Is there a possibility of a third party in all of this?" Lilian asks."A high possibility. Even if they salvaged planes from Grunder, putting them together and maintaining them after all this time requires some serious money. We're hoping this raid can shed some light, but as of now, our leading contender is, erm, Belka.""I see." You sigh. Of course."Anyways, that's it." Samantha says. "We'll be keeping Alpha in reserve in case things go bad, but this should just be a simple air support mission."You get the feeling things were going to go really bad."Anyways, you all better get ready. Dismissed." Samantha says.>Head for your plane and get ready to take off.>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?>Other
>>36867419>>36867391I reckon Angel has variants of suppressed blue shades on her ride.
>>36867470>>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?Let's upgrade our weapon loadout
>>36867470>Head for your plane and get ready to take off.
>>36867470>OtherMeet up with hunk, reminisce with him about returning home.
>>36867470>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?Need more Special Weapons.
>>36867470>>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?Can we at least window shopping?
>>36867470>Head for your plane and get ready to take off.Cash is good and all, but I think we're good with the current loadout.>Karla Kirijo returnsStill waiting for her Evoker pose with Penthiselea Who is actually the Demon of Razgriz
>>36867470>>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?Time for some Christmas shopping.
Been thinking on that sleeping Valkyrie canopy art. If we wanna do more Völsunga saga references, have Karla crash land at the airbase which knocks her unconscious (or fucks up the COFFIN System so she can't get out). Jager then has to take the role of Sigurd and run through a ring of flaming jet fuel and other hazards before having to break through the canopy art to retrieve Karla.
>>36867470>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?need to take a look at the store page again
>>36867470>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?I hope we get to hang out with Jaeger again soon.
>>36867470>>You've got 15,000 credit right now. Maybe stop by the store?Spend half of it on a logo art of jaeger in a pin-up girl pose.
>>36867659I like the cut of this anon's jib!
>>36867659 It shall be beautiful.
>>36867659You have no idea how much I'm snickering right now.
>>36867659>>36867690i don't think nose art will cost THAT much....we will need reference. Time to call Tarin to get some ... "intel"
>>36867659It will be glorious. Put it on the Right wing, we lost it on Pixy's plane and we'll mark it on ours.
>>36867731Recon or 'Deep' infiltration?
>>36867731I like this idea.We shall enlist tarin's help to sneak into the barracks.
>>36867784Preferably "deep" one.
>>36867659>pin-up posesRiding a bomb, perhaps? And do we include "Valkyrie" right next to the pinup?
>>36867790But Tarin according to the various incarnations is not lewd!So Karla will change that?
>>36867836Didn't you see MF's comic from PJ witches? She is a confirmed voyeur.
>>36867869Lewdbro mentions she is pure though.
>>36867835It'll be a... Jeagerbomb
>>36867470"I'm gonna stop by the shop real fast." You say to your wingmates. "I'll catch you later at the hangar.""Don't take too long!" Lilian nods."Yeah! See ya!" Lara waves.You head over the base store, where, as always, Quint is waiting from behind the counter, that damn money grubbing look on his face."Oh, so if it isn't Solo Wing Valkyrie." Quint chuckles. "Here to make a purchase?"You roll your eyes, Practically everybody in Artemis was calling you that after that show. "Just show me what you have." You say, briefly pondering paying for a pinup of Jager on our fuselage but deciding against it.You don't even know what he looks like naked, after all.SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/2isrdSeZ>Do you make any purchases?
>>36867916>6AAM (10,000)Air cover is our mission, so let's cover the sky.
>>36867916>Open chest sweater.No, Merc! Noooo! Don't tempt me!
>>36867916>http://pastebin.com/2isrdSeZWas Karla's breasts aleays that big?I thought she was slim, not plump
>>36867916>6 Air to Air Missiles (6AAM) - 10000
>>36867916>XLAARange is good. Range is life.
>>36867916>You don't even know what he looks like naked, after all.So, in the event that this becomes no longer a problem...?
>>36867916>F-16 VISTA Upgradehooooo, shiny.And in our price range, too.>You don't even know what he looks like naked, after all.Thats why you need 'recon', Karla
>>36867916F-16 XL Upgrade - 15000: Gives the F-16 a delta wing configuration, granting a minor increase in manueverability and allowing it to carry 2 special weapons instead of one.XLXLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
>>36867916>Do you make any purchases?No. About the only thing I would take would be the QAAM but we lack dosh.>>36867958Shh. Don't question it.
>>36867958hard to say, her original basis was Heitla powers' Prussia, that and some characters do end up growing beyond their basises.
>>36867916> Custom Order"Hey quint. Do you think you could get your hand on Pixy's plane? I mean. It IS kinda wrecked now, and the museum might not keep it....?""It'd be a.... pretty big project to fix but....I felt something flying that plane. Would you look into it for me, please?"GUYSLEGENDARY PLANE OR BUSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
>>36867916>Flankers>EAGLESrevvingintensifies.jpgFor gits and shiggles, I think we should totally get the Tigershark--as a backup plane, of course.
>>36867916Damn. Just 5k away from QAAMs.
>>36867916The F-16 Vista Upgrade please.
>>36867916F-16 VISTA Upgrade - 10000: Gives the F-16 thrust vectored engines, vastly increasing maneuverability.Oh shit this. Thrust vectoring is important
>>36868014>Tigershark.THIS. This, so hard.We can go Area 88 up in this bitch.>>36868002>custom order>Can we... can we get a VF-0?
>>36867976Doesn't work unless we have a second special weapon, brah.Keep in mind this is a -support the ground troops- mission.I don't think more AA missiles or more special weapons we can't mount because we only have the one weapon is the answer .>>36868002Holy shit. Pixy's plane. Go big or go home.that's why the custom order's there!
>>36867973>>36868024>>36868027>>36868029thrust vectoring is nice.. butXL>2 special weapons.>imagine 6AAM + 6AAM +2 Standard Missiles.All the snow. And extreme flexibility in carrying specialist AtG and AtA armaments.
>>36868027>>36868029I hope this gives us saving throw for failed dice...>>36868014For some reason i prefer Phantom as our reserve plane, if we ever able to get one.
>>36868024>>36867973>>36868029Why? At least with Weapon upgrades they carry over, but I doubt a upgrade straight to the aircraft will. It be waste when we can save for either a weapon upgrade (QAAM) or another aircraft that's just flat out better than the F-16.
>>36867916>6AAMThis will work even across platforms.
>>36868050>alpha strike of 14 missile dice rolls.staph
>>36868047>Holy shit. Pixy's plane. Go big or go home.>that's why the custom order's there!Okay, lets make sure we at least ask about this and how much it'll be.
>>36868052we sold the phantom tho.>>36867916Merc, before we go buying f-16 upgrades: what weapons DO we have access to already?>>36868071Because people don't realize that vista+XL = lol just buy a tomcat, flanker, legendary hidden collectable, or custom order instead.
>>36867916>F-16 VISTA Upgrade - 10000: Gives the F-16 thrust vectored engines, vastly increasing maneuverability.
>>36868090another name for the picture: ReactionToJanice.jpg
>>36868090>>36868050You fine gentlemen do know, of course, that this in no way guarantees Korne and Remilia-sama will grant us fair dice.Keep on trucking, /tg/.
>>36868071That's my line of reasoning. It's hard to compete with 'oooh shiiiny' though.
>>36868126Get some bloody self control then. Fuck.
>>36868101>we sold the phantom tho.We can always rebuy it. If we really want it.
>>36868121People are counting on law of averages to make sure that a Macross Missile blowout will lead to a lot of dead things, rather than a few precision shots.
>>36868198Still, I fear that with an extra SPW mount, the Mistress of the Scarlet Dice will merely laugh at our efforts and throw us a pittance of crits.
>>36868233or we shall be graced with snow.>>36868198and honestly, thats just something fun to do. the more prudent thing would be to sling 1 AtG and 1 AtA special weapon for good flexibility.
>>36868174I"d be more inclined to re-buy a Viggen as our old plane.Phantom's nice, but the Viggen has great avionics which means its great as a missile-truck and radar beast.>>36868233Exactly. Not only can we not make use of mounting a second gun we don't have; it will spread out the snow.Uncondensed snow is a shitty fluffy mess that gets everywhere but melts to no lasting effect. We want to keep our hard-as-shit packed-tight iceball in our pocket just fine.So, voting no on the XL upgrade >>36868262We don't have an AtG weapon to put on it. We've literally never bought extra weps. Its just wasted space.
You weapons you can CURRENTLY use are:Unguided BombsNapalmCluster Bombs4AAMsAlso, there seems to be a lot of desire for the XL. Are you sure you want to purchase that upgrade?>Y>N
>>36868281>We don't have an AtG weapon to put on it.Yeah we do. We just don't have the advanced ones. We have the basics.
>>36868281Viggen eh? Sound sexy.For next plane,I rather we have flanker or eagle later than upgrade actually. But if we can get Pixy's eagle for 15K we should get it.
>>36868302>N6AAMs all the way.
>>36868302>>NLet's go with 6AAM
>>36868302>NLet's save up for an even sexier plane, even though an F-16 is damn fine.
>>36868262You do realize that>THE SNOW can only be called upon--safely--once>Only Based Armchair can do it effectively>>36868281Good man. You bring honor to the KNIGHTS OF THE SNOW.
>>36868302>>N6AAMs are the way to go.
>>36868302Is that...Lt. Surge?Also, let's wait on the upgrade for the moment--let's see how much it would cost to nab Pixy's damaged bird.
>>36868302>NRather just save for QAAM or another aircraft.
>>36868348>Only Based Armchair can do it effectivelyNope, he has failed many times before, only for The Snow to grace someone else.
>>36868368Holy shit, man, you're right!>Surge's pikachu with a flight helmetMuh Nest BallsAlso, lewd Raptor-chan, showing her pantsu like that!
>Buying Pixy's plane>Implying the museum would ever let go of it.Only way you're getting that is if you steal it or if you singlehandedy save Ustio from certain destruction.Since XL seems to be a no go, are there any weapon systems you'd like to purchase?
>>36868395>>36868368And only now do I realize it's her little sister, Lightning-chan...>>36868379Clearly, THE SNOW mocks us.
>>36868379Well from what we have seen from many threads, The Snow really only comes ONCE and only once a thread. Begging it to come back within the same thread only results in heartbreak.
>>36868420No, lets get to the hanger.
>>36868395That's Lightning-chan. Don't get her and her sister confused.
>>36868420>No. Save up for QAAMs.
>>36868427>HeartbreakI see what you may or may not have intentionally done there, wingmate.
>>36868420Save up for something else like QAAM
>>368684206AAMs? Or maybe we should go with an AtG weapon.
>>36868420tsk.Let just get into mission then.
>>36868420>Yes, go for 6AAMsAir cover is our mission, so Maximum Missile Launch capability will come in handy.
>>36868440See >>36868421 boss.
>>36868420By the by Merc, I got an emblem waiting for approval sent over twitter. No rush of course.
>>36868420Skip on weapons for now, I guess
>>36868420>Pixy's Plane HeistYes. I wholeheartedly condone we do it. We're just gonna need a flatbed truck, smoke bombs, and a couple HAZMAT suits.
Yo, which block upgrade is our F-16?
>>36868576Pretty sure we have an F-16C, just like in all the AC games.
>>36868420"Hmmmm, the stuff I want is still a little out of my price range." You sigh."Pity." Quint shrugs. "Well, if you change your mind, you know where I'll be."You walk out of the store and head for you hangar. However, as you start walking over, you see Artemis ground troops also prepping to move out, a row of Chinook helicopters ready to carry them to the mission zone. Among them, you see Jager apparently briefing his team.Hm...>Swing by and say hi.>He looks busy. Just keep going.>Other
>>36868562Also, we need Lupin III, Kaito Kid, and Carmen San Diego on our team.with this as soundtrack>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAhFtSc70BA

Here's Lillian's Emblem. Osean color variant as well.2/5 to go!
Does Karla ever get weird dream sequences?Karla gets to bed and closes her eyes, only for an emergency mission to occur and forcing her out. Bravo Team gets to the hangar, but Karla notices that their planes aren't there. Lara then leads the rest of the Wild Cards by tapping the Emblem Patch on her shoulder with Amy and Lilian following suit with their Emblems (All puns intended).
>>36868689I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT
>>36868626Oh this very much this.>>36868607
>>36868689which was the first?>>36868696She gets ptsd dreams.
>>36868696Is that supposed to be Precure, Sailor Moon, or the SHUFFLE ALLIANCE??
>>36868681Awrighty>>36868696We had that flashback in thread 1?
>>36868689That great.Can you take personal request too?
>>36868696She had a flashback to the battle with the Scinfaxi in the first thread.
>>36868711Amy's>>36868723Sure why not, i'll add it to the pile
>>36868696>>36868720Was thinking of Super Sentai stuffELABORATE MAGICAL GIRL SEQUENCE>Lara transforms into a mecha musume F-15 with red blood stripes on her sides>Amy gets bulky metal armor with a sparking Magnet V-fin, and armed to the teeth (Arm mounted minigun, shoulder mounted rocket pod, bombs, etc.)>Lilian transforms into a winged Angel with a bow and arrow, and razor sharp halo.Karla hesitates, but slowly taps her Emblem Patch.>She then transforms into a Valkyrie (winged helm and all) with shield and spear/sword in hand.The Wildcards then fly off into the night.
>>36868607>>Swing by and say hiSo goal is to get both Tarin and Jaeger?
>>36868734>Super SentaiI keep telling you anons that the Wild Cards' theme is this track...>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjzsA3WkbTo
>>36868732ah>>36868668If you do you better share it.
>>36868732A logo for ISAF agressor squadron, based on Yellow squadron logo? If you also adding the Squadron number maybe make it 156th Aggressor Squadron 'Yellow'
>>36868607Well, you kind of had somewhere to go as well, so you decide to settle on a compromise. You put your fingers in your mouth and make the loudest cat whistle you can manage. That grabs the attention of both Jager and his squad, and they all turn to see you as you wave with one hand and twirl your finger through your hair with the other. You immediately see Jager give a "I'M TOTALLY NOT AMUSED" frown while his squad discusses with each other who you might be calling out to, while Tarin just gives you a perplexed look.Solid gold.With a chuckle you keep walking and head to the hangar, where the rest of your squadron was waiting. "About time!" Smokey grunts. "Come on, let's get your birds in the air!""So, you buy anything?" Lara asks."Not really." You shrug. "Quint's shit is expensive as hell.""Shame." Lara frowns. "Waitaminute... you seem awfully cheery. Did something happen while you were out?"Goddamn, Lara was annoyingly perceptive about the most annoying things.>Nothing, really.>Just teasing a guy I like.>Other
>>36868823>Nothing, really.Tease her a bit.
>>36868823>his squad discusses with each other who you might be calling out to>while Tarin just gives you a perplexed look.To Tarin, obviously.>Nothing, really.
>>36868823>>Just teasing a guy I like.She's not going to let it go even if we try to brush it off, is she?
>>36868823>>Nothing, really.Nope, just the usual (truth).
>>36868823>Nothing, really.Just some muffled hopes, dreams, and pants. Nothing serious.
>>36868823>>Just teasing a guy I like.

>>36868823>Nothing, really.Latched on to this dude like barnacles for some goddamn reason.
>>36868823>Nothing, really.>insert smug anime face here.png
>>36868889Hardly. We barely interact with him.
>>36868823>>Other"yeah, I just embarassed the shit out of someone when they weren't expecting it. Here, lara, lemme practice on you.""Turn around...."*repeat catcall at her. Compete with hair twirl and eye batting.* Give her the jaeger-experience just for shits n giggles.Remember: We're a Pilot. Don't pass up a chance to mess with our wingmen.
>>36868902This. Gotta fuck with the wingmen
>>36868823>>36868902fuck it, this
>>36868795Into the pile it'll go! That sounds challenging.Also what do you guys think Jager looks like? He's the one that started all the Merc quests and all. Doesn't feel right to not do a drawing of him.
>>36868823>>Nothing, really.Belkan stoic
>>36868936I'm going to be honest. I my headcanon is that Jager looked a bit like Kurt Irving.
>>36868902Fund It.FUND. IT.
>>36868936Oh man, pixelfag, that's a tonload of stuff to work on now. Hope you got the lists in hand!As for Jager, maybe something along the lines of Germany from hetalia?
>>36868936What's in the pile, anyway?
>>36868936I always kinda saw Jager as Spiers from Band of Brothers.
>>36868902So are you going to go with this option?>Y>N
>>36868902This. Do the demonstration.
>>36869002>Jager is SpiersFuck. Yiss.
>>36868936I always thought he looked like a dead ringer for Radi Jeager.
>>36868984But Jager was the opposite of everything that Kurt was.>>36869002Good old Speirs.>>36869019>N
>>36869019YWe wouldn't have it any other way.
>>36868936Maybe from old emblem, just keep the eagle.
>>36869134This bodes well for us all.
>>36869019"Yeah, I just embarrassed the shit out of someone when they weren't expecting it." You grin. "Here, Lara, let me practice on you.""What...?" Lara blinks, a bit confused.You then repeat the catcall, batting your eyes seductively and twirling your hair for some extra flavor. Lara seems taken aback."W-wow. Lucky guy." Lara says."Who says it was a guy?" You say with your smuggest grin."W--w-w-w-w-w-wha-" Lara's face immediately turns beet red as she backs away instinctively.Not even your famous Belkan Stoicism could keep your face straight for more than a second or two and you burst out in laughter."Aha, I'm just fucking with you, Lara!" You smile, patting her on the shoulder. "Come on, let's get in the air.""You- you-" Lara's cheeks puff like balloons.You can hear Amy laughing as well, while Lilian turns away to hide her amusement.Oh, silly Lara. It was always to put her on the defensive for a change.Quit slacking and start flying!" Smokey snaps, bringing you all back to attention.---"That still wasn't funny." Lara grumbles as the four of you transit to the mission area."Not funny for YOU." Amy giggles. "I thought it was freaking hilarious!""Oh, come on!" Lara wails. "Lilian, back me up here!""Sorry, I thought it was very amusing as well." Lilian says, obviously trying to stifle a laugh."Traitor." Lara grumbles."Hey, girls, focus." You grunt. "We're almost there.""Bravo Team, good to see you again." Loki's familiar voice buzzes through the radio. "Be advised, it looks like OB forces are aware of the attack and are mobilizing. The ground forces are running behind schedule so we don't have a good idea of what defenses might be placed around the facility. Suggest you hold back until they're in position."Hm. you weren't sure if you liked the idea of sending the ground troops in against untested defenses...>Buzz the facility and try to break up their defense.>Wait for the ground forces to get into position.>Other

>>36869295>Buzz the facility and try to break up their defense.We should soften up the defences before the ground troops get there.
>>36869295>Buzz the facility and try to break up their defense.The pattern is full, eh? TIME TO BUZZ
>>36869332Yeah, around 2016. The Directus mission last thread occurred on May 13.
>>36869295What's our loadout? Did we bring some groundpounders or the 4AAMS?

>>36869454"I'll go for a run. I'm packing napalm today." You say."Oooooh, that's cruel." Lara chuckles. "Okay, me and Angel will be top cover.""So how do we handle this, Valk?" Amy asks. "I can go in and draw their fire, and you take them out?""I dunno, I was thinking that m napalm would smoke them out and give you a easier target." You say."My my, when did you two get so friendly?" Lilian chuckles. "Shut up." Both you and Amy grunt.>Let Amy go in first.>You go in first.>Other

>>36869847Just some unsubstantiated talks of Amy being all dere with Lara after last thread is all.
>>36869847He's talking about Amy opening up as a possible love interest.Which is silly. It was always going to be Jager. I am a Karlafag and I will have my happy ending, goddamnit.
>>36869834It's looking like we did.
Hoo, shipping skirmish.Let me grab my popcorn.
>>36869850Hard find locally - I live in Gencore territory, Microsol's a bit hard to find. At least from a purchasing perspective.
>>36869864but what about when we pashed lara?
>>36869898Might as well add Tarin if your going there
>>36869898Not entirely sure what you're trying to say here.
>>36869877>Let me grab my popcorn.have some of mine, i can't hold all these kernels.>>36869847Okay, so i can't keep track of who all our teammates are and what they've flown/done wiht us.Someone remind me who amy and lara is and how to tell them apart, and which one had Those Unspeakable Pictures we deleted off their phone on the sly.Amy is the... a-10 pilot????like we need a wing-woman guide in the pastebin or something :V
>>36869877I got the meatbuns/siopao if you want some.
>>36869952http://pastebin.com/SeV4MmqvAmy is the A-10 pilot, and daddy's girl.Lara is our wingman. Women. Whatever.Lilian is... i don't remember her too much except she is our teammates.
>>36869754"I'll go in first." You say, hitting your throttles and jetting out ahead of Amy."Hey! That's not fair!" Amy cries."Get a faster plane, then!" You laugh as your Falcon jets forward. You line up on the Grunder Industries complex, and already, you could see activity on the ground. First, you could see troops marshaling outside the building, no doubt to meet the attackers. On the building itself, you could see heavy weapons, including machine gun nests, AT launchers, and MANPADS being set up. Finally, you could see the large blast doors leading to the tunnel slowly opening, either to allow reinforcements or to open up an escape path.>Bomb the troops to disrupt their defense.>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.>Bomb the tunnel to block it off.>Other
>>36869952Amy is the A-10 pilot who flew as Cypher during the parade. Lara is the F-15 pilot who had the unspeakable photos.Lilian is the Eurofighter pilot. She hasn't done much.There's only 3 wingmen, this shouldn't be hard.Also> :VReally?
>>36869990>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.
>>36869990>>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.Let's get 'em!!!
>>36869990>>Bomb the troops to disrupt their defense.Time to turn squishy into crispy.
>>36869990>>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.Napalm on the roofs keep them from being used. Amy has the troops.
>>36869990>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weaponsAmy can destroy the entrance
>>36869990>>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.>TunnelHopefully we won't fly there, and we won't need our dice.
>>36869990>Bomb the troops to disrupt their defenseThat's really the whole point of bringing napalm.
>>36869952Amy flies the A-10. She's the Ustio who we have a rivalry with who flew with us in Cipher's F-16 in the last thread. We've warmed up after the trip to Ustio.Lara is the flight lead, flies an F-16, we made out in drunken shenanigans. She's the gaudy Emmerian.Lillian is the one that flies a Eurofighter. Osean, rich girl, sorta floaty, distant type. We don't really know that much about her right now? I think her development hasn't been as much or as notable as the other girls.
>>36869990>Bomb the troops to disrupt their defense.We're not the important ones here, it's the boys and girls on the ground that need help.
>>36869999We'll have a Lilian arc soon or something.Perhaps she joined the army to runaway from a some weird stalker. Scared him off by divebombing him in her plane or something.(joking)
>>36869990>Bomb the troops to disrupt their defense.They can't dodge BRRRT when they're dazed.
>>36870035Obviously, Lilian is secret Belkan royalty.The rich kid story is merely a cover.
>>36870030>F-16Both of those should be F-15s.
>>36870055I can't fathom what made you post that. Can you talk me through your thought process there?
>>36869990>>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.
>>36870056... Um, no? Or wait, better, she's the illegitimate daughter of one of those asshole generals who nuked their own homeland and is trying to hide it!
>>36870055>cabalswq cabal confirmed
Can Napalm destroy heavy weapons?
>>36869990>>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons
>>36870079People are even more dicks to people who use emoji in their typing habits than they are to namefags.its disgusting. Try it sometime.
>>36870101It'll set them on fire, kill any crew and maybe cook off the ammo for it.
>>36870101With the right amounts, yes.>>36870094Fuck, that's even scarier than a pretender to the Belkan throne!
>>36869990>Bomb the rooftops to eliminate the heavy weapons.One order of munitions flambé, coming up.
>>36870101Not really. I don't no why it's being used that way when we have a warthog right behind us.
>>36869990>Bomb the tunnel to block it off.>MANPADSThat acronym will never not be funny to me.
>>36870133Because the heavy weapons aren't the part that burns. What burns is the squishy humans that use them. Further, if you napalm the tops of the buildings where these weapons are, you make those areas, and the heavy gear you can't move quickly, useless.
>>36870143At least until the fire burns out. But that'll probably be enough time for the ground force to make their attack.Also, Artemis might be able to appropriate the equipment if a lot of it survives. More arms for the armoury!
>>36870143It'd be more effective to use on the troops. Irl anyway. Here it's all just die rolls so I guess it doesn't really matter.
>>36870143>>36870133>>36870101All this doubt about napalm not being able to cook heavy weaponry. Remember the Flame Fougasse?>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flame_fougasse
>>36870097Presence of other Cabal members confirmed. challenge/response?
>>36870185You're just looking at it wrong. These are troops as well. These troops just happen to be in positions we want to deny to the enemy and have heavy equipment we don't want them using.
Rolled 5, 3, 4 = 12 (3d10)>>36869990You start to angle for the roof and aim for the main building, where the bulk of the heavy weapons were being set up. You quietly count down the seconds as you hit the trigger.At the same time, you see a couple of MANPADS and heavy MG teams take aim as you fly in.>Roll 2d10 (AtG roll. You need a 4 or lower for maximum effect!)
Rolled 8, 1 = 9 (2d10)>>36870227Check under your chairs, people! We have a surprise!
Rolled 7, 10 = 17 (2d10)>>36870227
Rolled 3, 6 = 9 (2d10)>>36870227
>>36870185It's not like we're dropping napalm on top of enclosed armoured vehicles. We're trying to decrew the heavy weapons. Kinda hard to use a DshK when it, you, and everything around you is on fire.Also, MANPADS and not SAMs, that means handheld launchers like stingers and iglas, that means people.
Rolled 2, 7 = 9 (2d10)>>36870227its go time
Rolled 8, 2 = 10 (2d10)>>36870240So I guess this is the winner. Nice one too bad about the 8
>>36870267>>36870260>>36870250>>36870249>>36870240>>36870227I take it we missed by a few feet?
>>36870267So one our bombs missed, then? Wonder what we hit if we missed the buildings.
>>36870240>>36870249>>36870250We got one hit and one miss?
>>36870227You scowl as you see a hastily fired missile screech towards you, but at this point you're far too close for it to get a track on your Falcon and it flies past. Unfortunately, the MG crews score a few lucky hits, putting a couple holes in your Falcon.>-1hp>8hp remains.However, you drop off your napalm bombs. One overshoots the building, landing harmlessly in the parking lot behind it, but your second bomb is a direct hit, landing smack dab in the center of the main building and engulfing it in flame. You can see smaller secondary explosions as ammunition and and rockets are cooked off by the heat. You even see what you think are men on fire leaping off the roof in an effort to escape the flames.On second thought, you're hoping that wasn't what you saw. However, you're already past the complex, and you hear the roar of rocket pods and Amy's main cannon behind you as she makes her own attack run. You pull up and turn to get a look at the results of your work. The central building was covered in flames, and the main field was covered in craters and smaller fires, a result of Amy's run."Starting the fun without us?" Jager's voice grunts."Just softening them up for you." You coo as you see a flight of Chinooks coming in. "Okay, we're moving in to secure the site." Jager says. "We'll call you in if we need you.""Roger that." You say."Bravo Team, be advised, I'm getting possible contacts on the Belkan side of the mountains." Loki warns. "I'm trying to coordinate with Belkan Air Control but we haven't gotten anything sold yet.""Well, we're not going to find anything out being on this side of the mountains." Lara grunts. "How about we fly over and take a quick peek? Might be an ambush.""But isn't that Belkan territory?" Lilian says. "We might cause some sort of incident.""Pffft. We're mercs, not Osean military. We got a bit of leeway." Amy assures you.>Let's take a peek over the mountains.>We'll stay here. If they come, they come.>Other

>>36870625>>Let's take a peek over the mountains.
>>36870625>>We'll stay here. If they come, they come.LET'S IGNORE IT AND HOPE IT GOES AWAY
Unrelated to the quest, but plenty of plane experts around.Were replacements or upgrades to the A-10 ever proposed? Does it even need them?
>>36870625>>We'll stay here. If they come, they come.>>36870716Let's not start that
>>36870716The A-10's concept is obsolete. Thanks to Precision Guided Munitions, CAS is done from substantially higher altitude, keeping it out of the range of MANPADs and SPAAGs. The A-10 is hyperspecialized into being able to survive hits from those while it bombs and strafes advancing columns of Soviet AFVs. Because this hyperspecialization is no longer needed, the A-10 needs no designated replacement. Multi-roles and bombers can do it all anyways, and with options to do a wider variety of roles.
>>36870716>Were replacements or upgrades to the A-10 ever proposed?Kinda sorta? Current fad is the F-35 Try-Everything-Do-Nothing, but I'm sure there's been past attempts.>Does it even need them?In 2014? Yes. The GAU-8 lacks the range and penetrative power to be relevant against tanks, and coming down to strafe infantry/trucks exposes you to all kinds of horrible bullshit that ground things do when they're trying their hardest to not get horribly mauled.Great plane, just slowly creeping further and further into obsolescence.
>>36870716I know there were ideas to convert them into drones in a decade or two.
>>36870716The F-35 was slated to take over the A-10's role as a CAS aircraft.>inb4 muh BRRRRT/muh loitering time/muh payload
>>36870770>>36870767Ok, got it.
>>36870625"We'll stay here. If they come, they come." You say simply."Fiiiiine." Lara sighs, obviously bummed.Meanwhile, you keep a close eye on the mountain range, watching for anything out of the ordinary.>roll 1d10 (ID test. You need a 6 or lower.)

>>36870814>>36870817>>36870819Whoa, they all succeeded beautifully!
>>36870819EYES LIKE A MOTHERFUCKING HAWK!

>>36870829>And for whatever reason, you've decided this makes it a bad plane.Too expensive. Amerifats are trying to push them on absolutely everyone. Lockheed Martin is very very good at bilking the DoD out of money.

>>36870850It's currently at around $90 mil per plane and we aren't even in full production. The Rafale and Eurofighter both cost much more than it at the present time, to say nothing of what it will be.
All of this talk about A-10 replacement...Seems someone want to convince Amy for backup plane?Something more multi-role?
>>36870902Nah, she's a Gates, she'll stick with that plane till she retires.
>>36870902This is Ace Combat. I'm more than happy to see the A-10 and its BRRRRTTT in here, as this is nowhere near reality.
>>36870805And then you see it. Dark shapes cresting the mountaintops. They were attempting to use the clouds as cover, but from your angle, and thanks to a sudden gust of wind, you can see them as clear as day."Bandits cresting the mountain!" You warn. "I count six Flankers, two Frogfoots and a Terminator!" Of course things couldn't be this easy.>Hit the Flankers. Their numbers make them a threat.>Hit the Frogfoots.

>>36871071You get a solid tone and fire off a pair of missiles. However, one missile misses, shooting past the Frogfoot, while the second one scores a solid hit, blasting a hole in its fuselage. However, Frogfoots, like A-10s, were built tough, and it manages to stay in the air, though only barely. Meanwhile, the second Frogfoot east a pair of missiles fired by Amy, and it goes down in flames.At this point, a pair of Flankers swings around to assist their crippled comrade.

>>36871654Both you and the Terminator fire on each other. One of your missiles strikes his left wingtip and shears it off. Your cannon rounds get sucked into his engines, and you see a few yellow flashes before it flames out.However, his attacks wreak just as much havoc on you. One missile glances off your plane just above the wing root, shredding the fuselage open, both exposing the inner components and creating extra drag. As he passes, he fires his cannon as well, riddling your tailfin with holes.>-4hp>4hp remaining.As it zooms past, you can see the Terminator loop around and make a beeline for the mountains. If he managed to crest those, he'd make a clean getaway.Meanwhile, the numbers of the Flankers had been thinned slightly. Now it was two of them against Lara and Lilian, while Amy hung back to orbit around the now landed Artemis troops.>No way you're letting this guy go.

>>36871799It was, good luck getting /tg/ stay consistent.
>>36871746>You need to go help your wingmates.We'll joust another day.
>>36871799Yeah. It was.
>>36871799I guess it's about the possibility that this is an ace.
Do you think that the Termy pilot is actually that Mirage pilot we fought way back?
>>36871799That's why we got the knightly aspect, we get half the money from a plane we let escape rather than destroy.It's nice, we don't have to murder everyone and we still get paid!
>>36871824Maybe. But it's better to have a rival.
>>36871746>You need to go help your wingmates.He'll be for another time.
>>36871838We're just going to be that ONE PILOT that he can't shoot down that always somehow survives, aren't we? Meta-wise, yes. But in-universe
>>36871856I'm hoping he doesn't get weirdly obsessed with us. You know, starts collecting articles, pictures, figuring out what we're after (cough finding the plane with some very distinctive stripes) and all that jazz.Things would get awkward...
>>36871869Unless it's a SHEThen things start doubly awkward... or twice as hot?
>>36871746You have a chance to go after him but... you decide to give a hand to your wingmates. The Terminator was out of the fight, anyways. You head back to the main dogfight, where you and Lara splash the last two remaining Flankers. "Good job, Bravo. The AO is clear of all enemy aircraft." Loki says proudly. "The ground forces have also informed me that they have just secured the site, though it looks as if some OB forces managed to escape through the tunnel.""We'll catch them soon enough."Suddenly, your radio buzzes as somebody broadcasts over an open channel. "That that Falcon pilot..." A voice says curiously. "You don't happen to be the Valkyrie, are you?">So what if I am?>Never heard of her.>Otjher

>>36871917>>36871913>>36871910>>36871908>>36871906We really need to file a patent for Belkan Stoicism (TM) already.
>>36871930That's not the case with Jaeger though?
>>36871930Unfortunately there is not patent... Belkans decided to make it open source to avoid all those irritating passive aggressive "..." Belkan stoic matches that seemed to erupt when they start trying to figure who is more patriotic than the other.
>>36871939Don't need to be stoic 100% of the time.
>>36871939Then probably something like a fashion line?Like,>Belkan Stoicism by KARLA WEISS (TM)
>>36871955No it's a line of perfume. It smells like tension.
>>36871939What I think is that Belkans are either stoic like Indigo, proud like Rot or sly like Grun.
>>36871961We need to meet Indigo Three - Mathias OverathHe's in the equivalent of NASA. I want his autograph in this universe. Might be a neat option for Karla when she gets tired of fighting
>>36871961I always liked Grun
>>36871959Holy crap, you're onto something here comrade.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xJBxaaU5fEWe could make some sort of perfume line out of Bravo Flight. Lara would be of the playful type, good for nights on the town.Lilian's would be the type sprayed when going on a black dress party.Amy's would be a simple cologne-like fragrance.
>>36871953So Karla vs Tarin who will win?
>>36871979If we are going to tension I think https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKv9R6Ft36g fits a bit better>>36871997Tarin unless Karla prepares ahead of time.Also we are on pg8.

>>36871885"Yes." You say simply. "What of it?""Ah, to think I was flying with the Chooser of the Slain herself." The voice chuckles. "You can call me Babylon, by the way. We'll be seeing each other again soon, I'm sure."With that, you see Babylon's Terminator disappear over the mountains, invisible to both your sigh and your radar.<<MISSION ACCOMPLISHED>>KILLSSu-27: 1000 x 3 = 3000Su-37 (ACE): 5000 - 2500 = 2500Total: 5500Treasury: 20500"The Grunder Industries building has been secured!" Loki says proudly. "Bravo Team, return to base. Alpha will take over from here.""Of course they get the easy jobs." Amy sighs."More kills for us!" Lara says happily. Meanwhile, you just can't take your eyes off the mountains. It just bothered you with how One Belka fighters were able to infiltrate Osea so easily. They seemed to be able to move in and out of the country too conveniently.Maybe it was true. Maybe Belka WAS rearming...You try not to think about it. Hopefully nobody here wanted to start another intercontinental war. Those sorts of things never seem to end well...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget to catch Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!

>>36872057no points for destroying heavy weapons?
>>36872057We really are going to be the Pixy equivalent of this generation aren't we?
>>36872057Thanks for running. Fun as always.
>>36872066Honestly the only reason I liked the Campaign from CoD MW2 was because of Red Alert 2. That would be hella fun to fly in though. Just flying in an extremely crowded airspace, weaving in between troop transports and dodging paratroopers.>>36872084No. Infantry kills don't count for planes just like they don't count for tanks.
>>36872090... So we're going to kill our comrades?
>>36872105That is, if Para-strike (aka airborne salsa) doesn't get to your engines first.It'd be interesting to see the OpFor armed with Kirov airships though.
>>36872057... Wait, is the enemy pilot a guy or a girl? Kind of curious.
>>36872127The time will come when we have to make that choice, I'm sure.
>>36872128Unless you have total air domination a Kirov is a joke. However since there has been C&C tech in PJ Witchs I'm kindof expecting Pierce and Red to run into a swarm of terror drones at some point.
>>36872135Babylon strikes me as a male's call sign.
>>36872057Thanks for running!
>>36872149... I'd prefer Sokolov or Christina make those for us with extra capabilites, thank you very much.I mean, I played a modded RA2 game before that had laser terror drones and repair terror drones...
>>36872152>>36872135Hang on, fellas, the pilot's callsign is "Babylon", right?Aren't you surprised the hostile pilot hasn't called Karla MONGREL yet?
>>36872172I would imagine they would be martian tech like the assassin drone that hid in the couch at Barin.
>>36872180Oh, of course. Forgot about that sly bastard.And Sokolov's terror drone army would include HELLCOW MK II
>>36872178Nope. I'm only slightly familiar with the AC universe. I don't know what you're referencing.
>>36872214Gilgamesh, King of Heroes from the Fate franchise. "Gate of Babylon" is one of his signature attacks.
>>36872198Sokolov to me would see more the type to engineer the Chrono Trooper, Mirage tank, or Cryo Copter
>>36872226Even less familiar with that franchise. Thanks for explaining though.
>>36872235Yeah, I'll hold out for him to make a mirage tank.>Chrono LegionnaireYou are treading on dangerous ground, my friend. Imagine if a gnome gained access to Chrono technology. It would render every AC superweapon moot.
>>36872226Doubt it, way too respectful.
>>36872262Maybe it's just a phase before Good Ol' Gil finally kicks in and starts calling every pilot in his general direction MONGREL?
>>36872255Sokolov goes back in time to prevent Stalin from becoming a martian robot, then the soviet leaders steal his tech and eliminate young.
>>36872303Now, where's shitscribbler's tanya when you need her....

>>36872328>witch YurikoOverkill man. OVERKILL.Also, think maybe Merc will include her in a future PJ thread? Like a Unit 731 experiment gone wild or something?
>>36872339She's probably a product of the IJA aligned witch covens.
