It takes you a few wavering steps to get your land-legs again, as you shuffle towards the front of the Airliner doing your best to muscle the people in front of you along, your carry-on duffelbag slung over your shoulder. It contains everything you need for a three-day trip to your home country. Behind you, Miho is taking advantage of the hole you're punching through the crowd as you move out across the airplane-bridge-thing and into the lobby.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank “Black Jack” and you're on a business trip. Or maybe its a diplomatic trip? You're actually not sure why you're standing in the lobby of SFO, or who you're meeting. You turn toward Miho- maybe she'll have a better idea of what to do when an all-too-familiar voice cuts across the din of the crowd.“Well... If it isn't the conquering hero returning home...” You turn back to focus on the source of the voice- a lanky Korean kid with the barest whisp of a teenage mustache leans against the end of a row of chairs. “And you've brought home some spoils, I see?”He moves forward as Miho comes to your side, politely taking her hand and kissing it. “Miss Nishizumi, I presume?” He says as she blushes furiously. “Pleasure to make your acquaintance.”>Hands off!>”Miho, this is Lee Yu Han...”>”What, no love for me, bro?”>Other.
>>38321281>”What, no love for me, bro?”
>>38321281>”What, no love for me, bro?”>”Miho, this is Lee Yu Han...”Backstory time!
>>38321281>”Miho, this is Lee Yu Han...”
>>38321281>>Other.Rack that Shotgun.
Ok thread, you're taking your girlfriend whose never been to America before on a trip through San Diego, where do you go? (DisneyLand is a given)
>>38321340this.also>Running at the same time as planefagyou...you...guh.
>>38321374My only knowledge about San Diego is T-Rex once wreaking havoc there.Also to BJ, you like Kancolle?So what do you think.... about Kancolle, but with more dirt?
>>38321374>>38321414Well, last time San diego beach was mentioned, so how about La Jolla beach? It's not as busy as Mission, and has lots of sea life for swimmers. Miho might like that. Also, guess what the quiet family restaurant area is called: Little Italy. Though, if we hunt, we might be able to find a good French place.
>>38321444Sorry, that should be La Jolla Cove, not beach. I'm not sure how interested Miho is in Museums, but USS Midway or the Air and Space might be another place to go.
>>38321281>”What, no love for me, bro?”Home turf. Home silly.
>>38321340You know what, Adding >>38321356 to my vote. A little screwing with old friends is normal.
>>38321281>”What, no love for me, bro?”+>>38321356>>38321487You don't mess with a man's girlfriend, a man's boss, and especially not with a man's Boss, who is also his girlfriend.
>>38321623I only know that if it has evulz barrel shroud and tacticool its banned, long-barreled shotgun should be okay.Also, promoting Kancolle ripoff with tanks in GuPQ.>>38321640its triple offense then!Bring out that 90mm!!
>>38321729Didn't Strike Witches do that with ground witches, but with less pants?
>>38321826Ground Witches are criminally underrepresented. Most of SW media focused more on aviation.Also, this game have infantry and IFV too, not only tanks and tank destroyer.
I believe this needs to be pointed out.HOLY FLUFFY FUCK!!!http://bato.to/read/_/306148/girls-und-panzer-ribbon-no-musha_v1_ch5_by_ak-scanlations/8
>>38321888Yeah, Ground Witches need more stage time. Milihime, huh? Infantry, IFVs, AND tanks, all in various degrees of attractive female forms? Did Armored Warfare staff people make this out of lulz>>38321928>ribbon warrior chapter fiveSTOP EVERYTHING! I MUST READ!
>>38321281I dont know if this was posted in a previous thread but the newest Warthunder patch which went live yesterday added ol blackjack to the game. The had the Pershing previously but this patch specifically added the M26E1
>>38321969Beej knows, he's been going on about it for a while.
>>38321985Oh? Is he happy? Or is he not doing so hot?
>>38321985How does it perform? Im not that far into US tanks. Just started T5 Nazi research.
>>38322015Think he's pretty stoked for it.>>38322034I've barely played any WT, so I wouldn't know. I'm more into WoT.
>>38321928>inb4 BeeJ makes special sneaking suit for Yukari.>>38321958>Infantry, IFVs, AND tanks, all in various degrees of attractive female forms?In both spectrum. You get loli to nee-san type.Hayha and Zaitev is Loli rare card in this game, iirc
>>38321958then i shall also link for your reading pleasure...Maginot Battle!http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/girls-und-panzer-gekitou-maginot-sen-desu-r14547
>>38322034What I've seen, from others mind you, is that lower tiers just get over Penned, which given War Thunder emphasis(ish) on realism and the high survivability of the crew, can be a problem. Most kills are either the tank burning down, ammo explosions, or Shrapnel killing the crew. >>38322056NICE! Tell him to stick to Realistic and Sim, but don't sweat it when the planes bomb him out! >>38322070>Vasily Zaitev>white death>all lolisThis is why I was meh on Strike Witches. Plane-girls, sure. Fetishized forms of real life soldiers... not so much. >>38322105What's that, Link to Girls und panzer? Sorry, didn't hear you, I was reading girls und panzer.
>>38322178>What's that, Link to Girls und panzerBetter. Link to MORE Girls und Panzer!
You give him a quiet, hurt face. “Lee- I-I thought I was your one and only?” You say, almost about to break into tears. Miho looks to you confused, then looks back to Lee, and back to you. “Its fine, baby. You know no woman could come between us!” He replies smoothly as he goes to shake your hand before pulling you into a back-patting hug. “Good to see you again, man.”You wink at Miho. “Miho, this is Lee Yu Han, the second best tank commander in North America...” You say, slinging an arm around your fellow tank commander. Lee had been your first ever opponent in tanking, and had been on of your closest friends outside of your crew ever since.He shoves your shoulder a bit. “Now listen to you- win a few battles and knock out a King Tiger and now you're getting delusions of grandeur...” You part from him a bit. “And, this...” You say, presenting Miho. “Is Miho Nishizumi, our Team Captain- and my girlfriend.” You punch him lightly in the shoulder. “So mind your hands!”>”So, any clue what I'm doing here?”>”How's the crew?”>”What is there to do in San Fransisco?”>Other.
>>38322792>”So, any clue what I'm doing here?”>”How's the crew?”
>>38322792>>”So, any clue what I'm doing here?”>>”What is there to do in San Fransisco?”
>>38322792>your first ever opponent in tankingSo this is the tactical genius with the M24? Nice to meet him. >”How's the crew?”>”What is there to do in San Fransisco?”I want to show Miho a good time, and a bit of the US of A.
>>38322792>”So, any clue what I'm doing here?”
>>38322792>”So, any clue what I'm doing here?”for like usual, we are clueless
>>38322967>>38322913>>38322837>>38322834You all forgot we got a letter to meet a corporate guy to talk about Tanking?
>>38323032More or less, but i forget if we already get the details.
>>38322792>”How's the crew?”HOWZAT
>>38321928>start reading through>spot this
>>38322792Alas, I must be at work at stupid hours tomorrow to deal with stupid people who are stupid. Good night BJ, Anons. I will check in during bouts of insomnia.>>38323582Exactly.
>>38323582Page 6. Smug Ribbon known exactly what she's doing.
>>38322792>”How's the crew?”>”What is there to do in San Fransisco?”Keep the plot moving people, no need for a recap.
The three of you walk down the airport concourse, Miho glancing around hungrily. “So, what brings us here?” You ask Lee. “Seriously- we got a letter with a couple of airplane tickets...”“Same thing that brought me here, probably- though I'm sure your trip across the pond was faster...” Lee was based out of San Jose, further south. “I really do hate the 101...”“So you got a letter too?” You ask, puzzled.“Letter, but no plane tickets and the hint of funding. Figured it was worth the trip north.” He says with a shrug. Funding was always the kicker for American tankers- you usually got some support from your school, sometimes the military would offer to pay for a tournement and a few tanks even got to the point where they picked up sponsors. But buying ammo and fuel was always arduous, and that was before you got into the various repairs and upkeep.Someone offers to pay that for you and any tanker would listen.“Oooooh!” She says, pointing at a Charlie's Subs. “Can we eat there?” She asks, in surprisingly decent English. “It smells good!”“You want your first American meal to be one of those grease sandwiches?” You don't mention the fact that it had been the last thing you'd eaten in America- which had been something of a mistake considering the eight hour flight directly afterwords.>Indulge her.>”We can wait for something better...”>”Lee, know anywhere better?”>Other.
>>38324076>>”We can wait for something better...”What is better sandwich there?
>>38324076Order her a small buffalo chicken with buffalo ranch fries.
>>38324076>”We can wait for something better...”Airport food. Not even once.
>>38324076>>”We can wait for something better...”Trust us, Miho.
>>38324076>”We can wait for something better...”Like Pizza!
>>38324076>grease sandwichesThey don't use much lube at all on the grill, it sears fast enough to release on its own, and they use cheese slices, not cheez wiz like "traditional" phillys.
>>38324076>”We can wait for something better...”
I don't think anybody saying "wait for something better" has ever actually eaten at Charlie's.
>>38324491Myself, no. I just think Miho's first real American meal should be something other than fast food.
>>38324491Ain't saying Charlie's is bad- I have it for lunch all the time- all I'm saying is that I generally have a 50/50 chance of getting the shits after eating it.
>>38324491That last line in the story post was a bit of an IC clue, considering the group will be meeting with a possible sponsor later.You've totally nailed it though.
>>38324539Eh? The sandwiches are grilled right when you order, and they do the fries is small batches, so they're probably fresh out of the fryer when you get them. It's fast, but it's not Mickey-D's or BK manufactured style.
>>38324567Must just be the location you go to or you have a weak digestive system, I've never had that problem.
>>38324571I'll take ya'lls word for how the food's done, but we are due for an appointment. and apparently we were not the only ones invited. If this is some kind of recruitment for a team, I will say I called it.
>>38324076>”Lee, know anywhere better?”I'll always be partial to in n out for foreigners
>>38324646>Russells suggests against "grease sandwich">suggests something greasier
Guys, i just found Rommel's little sister.or possible hybrid of Rommel and Yukari
>>38324881>Rommel-Yukari hybridHave you heard of IPS cells?
>>38324881Girl is not moe/cute enough for me.Any Ft-17s?
>>38324900But who is rich enough to fund it?>>38324903eh, its new game. If it successful enough maybe it'll get some new artwork much-much later....and maybe no. Lightest tank i find so far is TKS tankette (with the name Orlik) but who know...
>>38324964The real question you need to be asking is, Who's already paid for and used it.
>>38325050We never see or hear of a father, so it's not ruled out, lol.
Lee thinks for a moment- he knows the Bay Area better than you. “Lesse- well there's a In-N-Out up on the Wharf if you can wait to get up there- Its not far from where we're going.” He shrugs. “Could do Chinatown, too...” He turns back to the conversation at hand as you exit out onto the street where a Taxi is already waiting. “So, I guess my hopes that you have any idea what's going on are dashed... Don't know why I'm disappointed.”“Is it just us?” You ask as you open the door for Miho and the three of you squeeze in. It'd normally be a tight squeeze, but Miho's slight frame in the middle makes the fit not too uncomfortable. “Figure two tank crews in one place, there's gotta be more.”“There are- All the big hitters- Jackson Teague,” He starts counting off on his hands. “Kitty Black, The Branson Brothers, Joey Lopez...” At the last name you blanch a bit.“Crap.” Joey's a nice enough guy, Commander of the Pz.V Panther “Bronx Baller”- just gotta keep him isolated from sisters, daughters and livestock- though it had been entertaining convincing Rose to give back his arm when he'd gotten a bit too friendly with your gunner.“Yep. The look on his face after that though... Priceless.” Lee smiles and leans back. “So, In-N-Out?”>Seems like a decent intro to American cuisine.>”You said it was near where we're going?”>”But its even greasier than Charlies!”>Other.
>>38325287>>”You said it was near where we're going?”
>>38325287>”But its even greasier than Charlies!”
>>38325287>”You said it was near where we're going?”Another guy who can't keep his hands to himself? Hope Miho's learned a few things from Saori and Hana.
>>38325287>”But its even greasier than Charlies!”We're tankers, we've had more than enough grease back home, dammit!
>>38325287>>”You said it was near where we're going?”>>38325376This *is* home.
>>38325387We are tankers, our home is our tank and the hangar that holds it.
>>38325287>>Seems like a decent intro to American cuisine.Animal Style everything, and Flying Dutchmans for all! In n Out a best, with The Habit a close second.
>>38325416"this is my home"
>>38325416>>38325497Death Flag tripped. Hope you're happy. Miho's going to cry.
>>38325497My roommate just got me that movie on DVD for no reason a couple of days ago.iirc you, Scholar, and I talked about it two GuPQ threads or so ago.
>>38325540Carbon lining, son!

>>38325616>Implying I wasn't joking as wellCertainly a scholar could see that I was joining you in you jest, right?
>>38325652if anyone on this thread not catching that reference, i'll gonna send him/her to Saunders debriefing room.tentacle might be used
>>38325633>mfw>>38325687just checking>>38325696Nope, We all got it, no need for any debriefings thankyouverymuch!
>>38325696Will the debriefings be recorded?
>>38325724Only for repeat offenders. We'll even record it on high definition!
>>38325757We could rent out the copies. Might make a sizable sum overseas.
Is blackjack kill?
>>38326233Probably writing right about now.
“Well, its greasier than Charlies but...” You start to say as the taxi makes its way from the the airport.“In-N-Out?” Miho says. “I've heard of that! Its supposed to be good!” She says excitedly- she isn't wrong, either. As far as fast food goes there isn't a lot out there that's better. “Let's go there!” You look across to Lee who shrugs. “Well, if its on the way...” You say and Miho looks about as happy as you've ever seen.“Lee, yes?” She says. “What sort of tank do you command?” She says, making conversation.He grins. “M4A3- 76mm armed with Wet-Stowage.” He opens up his wallet and pulls out a picture of it. “There she is... Gold Digger.” He says with pride.“Did your tank combat?” Miho asks, taking the picture to look closely. Lee nods. “Yep- She managed to survive from Bastogne to the end of the war...” He says. “Checked her serial number with military archives. Even found a few pictures of her!” He flips his wallet to another picture. “That's her in Cologne... Original crew.”>”Don't mind Lee- he's a history junky for his tank.”>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”>Other.
>>38326392>>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”
>>38326392>”Don't mind Lee- he's a history junky for his tank.”>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”
>>38326392>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”and>"Since he can't get a girl his tank is his girlfriend."
>>38326392>>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”She clearly doesn't mind him, else she probably wouldn't be asking about it.
>>38326399Scholar are you still looking for the lyrics to that SS song from Fury?
>>38326460Nah. I found them from looking up this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y11R852RJZ, I just never made the connection between this and the Tiger battle track.
>>38326488https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsSfTwT5EMMHeres the Fallschirmjäger version (still approved for use in the Bundeswehr, I think)
>>38326516Thanks Guy! These make nice German language practice.
>>38326535No prob, I find it fun to sing along, and my oma is happy that I know at least some german
>>38326555I'll be heading to Wittenberg, Germany in a year, so I need all the practice I can get!
>>38326392>”Do you know anything about your Pz.IV, Miho?”Story time!
While we wait for BlackJack, this image got me thinking: a three-way battle Royale between the three rival heavy tanks and their commanders: Nonna's Red Vanya, Russells' BlackJack, and Erika's Grosse Mieze. Anyone interested?
>>38326801Sign me up, I'm in!
>>38326801Here's how it will play out> Nonna fires a ranging shot then gets gutted while waiting for teenage girls to finish reloading a 30kg shell and bag> Erika's final drive goes Kaput while trying to go up hill> Russells M26 will decide it wants to overheat when the engine torques and the fan belt slips off
>>38326899I think at that point the Judges would say "Ok, let's try that again. From the top, people!"
>>38326899I'll bite.>Every loaders here are that strong.>Erika, not so stupid, find the way to avoid hill.>Three words: Ooarai Automotive Club. They solve what Ferdinand Porche can't. Pershing is a mere side dish.
You laugh. “Don't mind Lee, Miho. He's been tracking down every scrap of information on that old thing since he's been in command of it...” You smile as the comparison comes to mind. “He's like Yukari, but just for his tank...”“Hey, just because I didn't have the last sixty years of my tank's history handed to me on a silver platter, like some people...” He jabs back.Its an interesting thought, though. You'd always taken Black Jack's history for granted. “Y'know, we both know a ton about our tanks... What do you know about your Panzer IV, Miho?” You ask, and she actually gets a bit of a quizzical look on her face.“Actually- not a lot.” She says, staring down. “Kuromuromine had documents on all their tanks- where they were made, who they were crewed by, where they fought and how they survived the war...” She continues looking down. “They always wanted 'real' tanks that had fought- Mom always used to say tanks had to be hardened by battle and quenched with blood.”“Sounds like a real charmer...” Lee says under his breath, eliciting no reaction from Miho at all.You stick an arm around Miho. “We should take a look when we get back- maybe the History Club can do some poking around.” You lean back in your seat. “Meanwhile, I'm starving- how long until In-N-Out?”
