Girls und Panzer and /ak/: "Chain General Edition" Edition.
come at me faggots
from last thread
>Remember, guys, those ships are basically FUCKHUGE BOATING SCHOOL ships
Wheeled direct fire support vehicles is the dumbest meme ever.
Reminder that Darjeeling is a stupid idiot with the worst puns ever.
Did anyone try to make an IFV in the 40s? There's pictures of soviet and German infantry riding on top of T-34s and stugs but I don't think anyone tried making a personnel carrier intended for direct fire support.
How would you improve her then?
The concept of IFV is probably different back then. Closest I can think of when it comes to "wheeled big gun" is this.
>Her only real flaw is keeping Gloriana's "Let's love old tonks forever" tradition.
Big enough of a flaw, but I suppose the political shitstorm from trying to change would be too great.
Two threads ago Anon asked if the Ratte guns (should it actually be built) would be able to depress enough to target tanks.
Sources list that turret and gun as being able to depress at much as -10 deegres, so yes.
Well, you have the Stuart.
No, not a joke: turretless M5 with several machineguns and passenger seats were used as recon vehicles, AA work, and light APC with heavy MG fire support. Basically, an IFV
The mockups for the Ratte looked vastly different from what we've known.
Friendly Reminder that Shizuka
>is underage and drinks alcohol
>buries her head in her lover's crotch in public
>hands unknown drugs to highschool girls
>carries probably illegal weapon
>participates in street fights
>endangers lifes of innocents for her own gain
If they don't think they have enough ideas for a second season they could at least make OVAs about the other matches in the tournament. The semifinals of Kuroromine vs Gloriana in a dessert environment would be great.
They could also show the matches between the unseen schools and the ones we know about.
Can't they at least animate the maginot manga? I need muh Eclair.
Look at all this OVA material!
Mizushima, why do you hate money?!
Thanks, Anon. Didn't knew the model number. I knew all three of British, Americans and Chinese dd similar, and also knew it was done similar to Hellcat and Chaffee (in both prototype stage and actual usage), but all my sources were text-only.
>Can't they at least animate the maginot manga? I need muh Eclair.
Very hard to animate something where the main cast (in this case, the Maginot girls) is set out to lose from the start.
So many good ways to do it too.
>tell her she'll never be as good as Miho
>tell her Maho likes Miho more
>compare her to a lapdog
>mention all the fan mail and love letters that Maho gets
>ask her why she doesn't get any
>tell her Maho got sick from her valentines chocolate
>remind her about all the design flaws with late-war German tanks
Prime bullying material.
We all knew Ōarai would win but the Anzio OVA was still great.
I suppose that's very true.
Also Carpaccio's cuteness is a miracle of the universe.
Why isn't Bonple using the 9TP in tankathlon?
There wasn't any tank called '9TP' officially. It was just an improved 7TP.
I understand that Jajka didn't want to use stronger tanks againt Tategoto or Anzio, but seeing her face when Uszka told her about Pravda entering tankathlon I doubt she wouldn't use anything that could give her an advantage, even by a small margin. She's too pragmatic to be this arrogant.
Notice how she says "so it was about difference in tanks after all" after winning and she's ecstatic. It was the way for her to get over her Pravda inferiority complex. Using strongest tanks would have been against the point. Or most likely authors just forgot about 9TP.
Also in the last thread I said she was frustrated and trying to not show it in that picture, that's what I got without context. With context it's possible that she was kind of afraid of fighting them and trying not to show it.
We have that thread on eightchannel everyday and I shit on WoT, WT and AW every thread while shilling the fuck out of panzer elite and steel fury.
Such a shame that good tank games are so rare.
>people unironically use "moeshit"
I'm so happy modern anime is the way it is. Until it's overrun by fujoshi, that is.
>panzer elite and steel fury.
I can tell you exactly why they are good. Because they're not multiplayer games. If it's multiplayer then it's pretty much bad automatically.
Why can't that artist draw heads in profile?
/r/ing Erwin on the cover of the first volume.
She's cute but fuck that hat. It's horrible.
>>remind her about all the design flaws with late-war German tanks
Didn't she drive Crusader in elementary? It's a cavalry tank. So why giant slow King Tiger? I mean I get why, because it's won of the strongest if you only look at gun/armor, so she wants to grasp at any opportunity to win, but it may not be that suitable for her.
Anyway, the real bullying comes after Kuromori loses in 3rd year competition with her as a Captain.
On the contrary, the hat completes her.
That's just how she apperas to be. Bonple is one of the ojou schools so going all "o ho ho ho" is natural, and considering she is the best tankathlon has to offer, she has to have somewhat intimidating presence. Also RinVision.
I will kill you. These pictures are shopped
Don't act like you want her to treat you well.
Mika's motherly, but she's not like that. Have some respect for her!
Why doesn't she have any Cromwells on her team?
>Tracking the original CD is pointless, since I don't even have a DVD-ROM now.
Did you fall for the ODD-less case meme?
That's not really a flaw. I mean, what do you want them to use (pic related).
At least that size looks like something a real person can use without killing themselves. Unlike my usual jokes about Yukari loading 75 mm into Miho.
Nah, I don't care.
I meant is.
Glorium Britannia. God save the Queen.
Why doesn't Bonple just buy themselves Fireflies or T34s?
They could actually stand a chance in Senshado that way instead of only being competitive in tankathlon.
Much better. Commence smugness.
Golden Liberty. According to one anon who translated the lore page about them, they are rich enough to buy new tonks, but internal struggles prevent them from agreeing on it.
>It's pretty cool (especially the plate armour), but it didn't sell well, or do well (if I remember correctly).
Both. Then again the Brits doesn't have like thousands of tanks unlike the Americans and the Germans after the end of Cold War, coupled with a government threatening to retire all tanks on a whim.
>normal height RAM
I wish manufacturers will stop putting dumb heat-spreaders on RAMs that'll block heatsinks.
Challenger 2s are a bloody nightmare to deal with in AW. Those with TES are even worse.
Our military is horrendously weak right now, because of little government spending (Thanks Cameron). But, what it lacks in numbers and finance, it makes up for in skill. It's no secret that our intelligence and skill is one of the best out there; and, coupled with American numbers, equipment and money, we're practically invincible.
The only thing keeping BOTH of us down are the politicians. And, sandniggers don't like fighting fair.
Two sticks that aren't visible are actually low-height. But with the newer ones - it was easier/cheaper to find some normal height ones, or rather I was just lazy. Slightly annoying, but at least the ones closer to the heatsink are small, so they don't block it.
>And, sandniggers don't like fighting fair.
Who needs super-modern tech to fight against arabs? Countries that can produce MBT don't fight each other, they just bully small countries.
All western MBT are really similar anyway, they even use the same gun. T-90 looks like a real oddball next to them.
The good news is that thanks to the T-14 Armata, the Challenger 2s are going to get an LEP.
I doubt the smoothbore gun would be considered though. I've read up everything about it, goes down to cost (you guys will need to build an all-new tank around the gun), and that's the cost that people rather not spend.
Then again, an upgrade to the electronics would bring the tank up to standard. Much upgraded FCS + network-centric thingies would help quite a bit, and the bit about having found a company in Belgium to make new ammo just sweetens it.
>All western MBT are really similar anyway, they even use the same gun.
Challenger 2 doesn't actually use the German smoothbore at the moment.
What's the chance of finding decent ladies like these in the UK? Should I move there to do so?
Point taken. Also you don't need a PSU that powerful, I did fine with a 650w Seasonic on a PC with a 4770K and a R9 280X.
/g/ logic means I'm supposed to go even lower.
You're more likely to find soccer hooligans.
Fuck Manchester United, fuck their win over Liverpool it's some massive bullshit.
Anon, British ladies are only decent for a drunk shag.
I wonder what Britbros think of the St.Glroiana girls then. Ridiculously out-of-date stereotype?
>you don't need a PSU that powerful
Yeah, I bought it to have 2 videocards, thank God I changed my mind. But it was too late to un-buy the PSU.
>it's some massive bullshit
It's not like Liver deserved to win 100%. Wanna see real bullshit, check Chelsea vs Everton.
Damn, I never noticed Shizuka is so small. It's cute.
Do we have height charts for RW characters?
My goodness, don't remind me of that match. A bunch of us was like "oh hey history gonna happen" until Terry fucking scored. Everyone went "what the actual fuck?" Still can't beat Arsenal choking.
/ak/ is consquently building fear of Britain in me. Which is unsettling, because I'm going to study there for a year.
On another note, I remember there was an anon who was into 3D modelling - is he still here? I might be getting a 3d printer or an acces to one this year.
A great memory of the past.
We need to bring back redcoats when in battle. It will encourage our troops to remember what they're fighting for, as well as remind our enemies who they're fighting against.
Britain still is a major power, just not a superpower, anymore. It's just as degenerate as anywhere else, in fact the Continentals are more degenerate; and America can get really degenerate at times (you know what I mean).
That stereotype is true for secondary school girls, as well as some girls in University.
Britain is shit-tier and a massive nanny state at the moment, that's why so many Britons are fucking off to New Zealand/Canada/Australia.
Don't worry, soon you won't be allowed to raise your own kids. LITERAL nanny-state soon!
Sure, it's much scarier than some faggots in military fatigues.
It's really not that bad, /ak/ constantly exaggerates the situation. I mean, think of any Western Country, and you've got Britain: the women are only as degenerate as America.
Sounds like their government are trying to remain relevant after the manner the whole "break out of the Union" thing went.
I think Singapore is worse, their founder basically said "if they call Singapore a nanny state then I'm proud of it."
sorry anon I'm too paranoid to go into details
I also wanted to add I would love to get myself a Pekoe while being there.
>Sounds like their government are trying to remain relevant after the manner the whole "break out of the Union" thing went.
They also introduced licenses for fucking air-rifles.
I've heard stories about Singapore but I was just speaking about Europe.
I want to load my APFSDS in to her breech.
>Though I think our days of world policing are done.
It's more like we're shifting our gaze. The middle east can be the EU's problem until they break apart and stop being an ostensible competitor to the US market. As well, the nations within the EU are fucking up each other with overreaching progressive/nanny laws that a lot of the member states hate and honestly don't have the ability to uphold well even if they wanted to (particularly migrant-refugees or free roaming ability within the EU for migrants, which in the poorer nations does well for crime and trafficking).
The US itself is shifting over to keeping the Chinese micro-expansions in check before they gain too many footholds and beachheads in their Chain of Pearls plan. It's doing relatively well, though that's an open term since China has its little "research stations" in the middle of the South Asia sea, but similarly a lot of the pacific is preemptively banding together to prevent further PRC expansion because they're already sick of bullying from a state that can't really project militariliy but can still fuck them over economically.
>I also wanted to add I would love to get myself a Pekoe while being there.
I'm sure you would, but realistically all you have a chance of getting is a bunch of club slags.
You should embrace it anon, British girls go fucking crazy for the American accent.
Get drunk, pop some eccies, hit the club and give in to your hidden normalfag carnal desires. It's a nice change of pace from anime and tank discussions.
Anyway, why are Anzio girls so fun and appealing despite being pretty bad at Senshado?
Are you willing to do it at 1,555 m/s?
>Anyway, why are Anzio girls so fun and appealing despite being pretty bad at Senshado?
Because the girls are balanced fun.
Then again I like using the C1 Ariete and B1 Centauro in AW so I'm biased.
>Get drunk, pop some eccies, hit the club and give in to your hidden normalfag carnal desires
You're telling him to not become One of Us. That's terrible, Anon. Just let him have the perfection of 2D, and let 3D be PD.
There's no Pekoe except in 2D. No 3D will ever be as good. Not ever.
>You're telling him to not become One of Us
Bullshit, as long as you still love 2D girls, don't have a superiority complex, don't laugh at virgin anons, don't have a facebook-tier "omg 4chan and those anons are soooo weird and creepy" attitude and don't brag about your 3DPD sexual conquests at every single opportunity when it's not called for then you're a decent anon and you belong here.
It's hard to stay the exact same person if you've been coming to 4chan for years/grew up with it.
>Britain is shit-tier and a massive nanny state at the moment, that's why so many Britons are fucking off to New Zealand/Canada/Australia.
wew lad, that foreign relations degree from /int/ was well earned.
>you're a decent anon and you belong here.
>It's hard to stay the exact same person if you've been coming to 4chan for years/grew up with it.
That's exactly what's wrong about that statement. It's revisionist of what we're supposed to be, and newfag reddit-tier speak.
or just join a rifle club and get a license.
or just buy a crossbow.
I disagree with you but I don't want to go any more offtopic, the thread would get all fucked up If I do.
>so irrelevant you have to invoke memories from two centuries past that still can't cover the shame of your former colony having to save you in two world wars
>garupan thread turning into /pol/
>garupan thread turning into /r9k/
Time for lewdposting.
Hungry for cocks.
Those people need to get real hobbies.
She's very cute but there's hardly any art of her.
I want more French anime girls.
>Why is she so busty? Does she represent the fecundity of Mother Russia?
The two of them represent the dual stereotypical Russian women; the tiny blond, and the huge stacked Amazon.
Is that the Russian stereotype of their own women?
>not opting for paizuri first
into the purge you go
>started reading Osprey's Panzer IV vs Sherman duel book
>get to the page on shell types and their effectiveness
So the actual projectile of the Sherman is much bigger than that of the Panzer IV's, the Panzer IV just had a much higher muzzle velocity and propellant weight. When the Sherman's APCBC actually penetrated did it do much more damage? Is the small size of the Panzer IV's projectile the reason so many tanks were knocked out yet so few crewmembers usually died?
That's changed in the recent months, /cgl/ and /r9k/ are now both designated femanon boards.
/cgl/ is where they discuss their clothes and bitch about attention-whores, /r9k/ is where they discuss their lives, boyfriends and get attention from thirsty betas.
>There's no Pekoe except in 2D. No 3D will ever be as good. Not ever.
Fuck you, anon
because I know you're right
also I wonder if Pekoe likes talking about tanks with people other than her senshado team or is she like "Don't talk to me about my job" girl form Alisa's crew.
>/cgl/ is where they discuss their clothes and bitch about attention-whores, /r9k/ is where they discuss their lives, boyfriends and get attention from thirsty betas.
So basically facebook?
Shermans were spacious tanks, if something like APCR or a round not really meant to fragment were to penetrate a certain spot in the tank there's a good chance nothing vital will get hit.
That's really more supposition than a citation. I can find numerous examples of a side hit getting to the fuel tank or hitting ammunition, I can't find a single case of a round passing through the tank entirely.
I got it from a documentary I watched some time ago on youtube, where vet's told about their encounters with german tanks. I can't find it right now tho. If I recoutn it right he said something like "If you're lucky the shell would just fly right through the tank" it was in reference to a Tiger if I'm remembering correctly, don't know if the same would happen with a 7,5cm kwk
inb4 deathtraps, ronsons, and tommycooker
Even then, a round could penetrate, not pass through the other side, and still not hit anything too vital to the crew's survival.
I'm not making fun of the Sherman.
But if a round penetrates one side and hits nothing vital, what exactly happens? If it doesn't explode doesn't the concussion or whatever injure or kill crewmembers?
It could. But despite the reputation from shitters like Belton Cooper the Sherman had a casualty rate of about 18% and most wrecks were recovered and put back into action with mostly the same crew. Hell, there are stories of the same 5 crewmembers going through 3 Shermans in a span of 1 month.
>these are the people in GuP threads
It's the 76mm gun later Shermans were armed with.
found it, can't say anything about the credibility though, the part I referenced was something around 11:10 and forward
of course not, I just remembered I saw that somewhere and thought it could be an explanation for the few crew deaths.
>Tiger vs Sherman
>comparing a heavy and a medium
I don't want to be that guy but I'm already dismissive of it.
>and thought it could be an explanation for the few crew deaths
An anon here once pointed out that it was due to the quality of steel and armour of the Sherman that prevented crew deaths. Something about a lack of spalling and whatnot causing the only crew death to usually be the man closest to the point of penetration.
Part of me wishes for an "alternative league" of senshadou/tankathalon where you're allowed to build and use pretty much any design, no matter how bullshit, as long as all its parts and materials could have been made during WW2.
The main reason for this is wanting to see a cute Mini-Tiger Tankette in Tankathlalon
>with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth
You know what's really beautiful about it? It's not a dysfunctional money pit like the overbloated pos we have on our side of the pond.
>it didn't [...] do well
I heard it did just fine; orders of magnitude better than our 80-ton paperweight.
>the Brits doesn't have like thousands of tanks unlike the Americans
Then again they don't need thousands of tanks because they're not incessantly running out of fuel or breaking down or getting BTFO.
>Our military is horrendously weak right now, because of little government spending
Perhaps you should opt for a medical system that isn't as overbloated and dysfunctional as the M1-series MBT.
>what it lacks in numbers and finance, it makes up for in skill
Ours is just pay2win because it's staffed by retards at every level.
>It's no secret that our intelligence and skill is one of the best out there
Intelligence is a term that does not apply in the least to our military (nb4 context).
>coupled with American numbers money
FTFY; I couldn't recommend our equipment to anyone other than our enemies.
>The only thing keeping BOTH of us down are the politicians
Unfortunately our military is infested with those in positions of authority. Also, corporatists.
While everyone else is actually upgrading their tanks we're just slapping more gimmicky crap that doesn't even work on ours and in so doing making it more bloated, more expensive and more dysfunctional.
I loathe my military and defense industry...
Erika, please don't frighten Yukari with such scary things.
Apologies for interrupting the ANSI-standard shermanfaggotry, but work must be continued.
The "Ominus" was corrected and posted, you missed it, Proofreader Anon. Not reposting it nor bothering to post the white adjustment (fill with 100% white should do the trick)
Nonna keeps her tits warm by visiting her friend and heating them with the flame of freedom.
>They look 17 at the very least!
Are you from the UK? Have you ever seen how young girls dree in the UK and how developed they are for their age?
You need to ask for ID in this country.
>They look 17 at the very least!
Yes, look being the key word here.
I'd honestly be surprised if any of them were older than 14.
No memeing here, this is how British girls at that age dress/apply makeup when out partying.
Erika is not a Wehraboo. Wehraboos think the the Wehrmacht is only guilty by virtue of following orders.
Erika is simply a Nazi.
Isn't Tankathalon basically the street racing of senshadou with no real regulation other than the 10 ton weight limit? Didn't they outfit the Type 97 with parts made using modern materials and techniques?
I think technically they can do that, but it's just that it would be the equivalent of stripping down a Honda Civic and making it look like a Lamborgini.
Do you keep your Erika on a leash?
Do you hate Freedom or something?
Tankathlon and eurobeat mash up when

>British girls go fucking crazy for the American accent.
>Britain is shit-tier and a massive nanny state at the moment, that's why so many Britons are fucking off to New Zealand/Canada/Australia.
If socialism is the problem why are people moving to Canada? Fucking hell, what's with weapon-related discussions always transforming into the most adolescent political opinion-flinging?
As if the lifestyle of an anime fan weren't the most degenerate at all.
Too much freedom and communism in this thread. Post more fascists.
Part of me wants to know what it would be like to live in a world where a political party would openly want this iconography associated with them.
I don't even think having the building rise up from a dark, foggy, swamp would top this.
I guess she did, It's not that easy to be friends with tryhard Erika. But those girls are cunts anyway.
In what way did she express that? She never blamed them for losing. I heard in some anime, that people who perceive themselves as inferior often tend to see it in the eyes of those around them.
Also in rabu-rabu, Miho points out that when Erika fell asleep on the bus, everyone forgot her and left. Don't know if we should look to deeply into this, but maybe nobody except Maho even likes her at KMM.
>nobody but Maho even likes her at KMM
I suppose it would make sense, she's rude and belittling to her competition, and although it may just be a lack of characterization, we don't see much of her beyond her role in the Sensha-do team.
Movie has Finns in a BT-42 and anime Jezza in a crusader. I'm expecting sick doriftos.
This image is amazing by the way.
Can we please just refrain from posting any lewd Mika?
Her body is not shaped like that though. She's voluptuous, but she doesn't have these thighs everyone is giving her.
An innocent pantsu flash is natural anon. Happens to everyone.
She is a rival, not a villain. I bet she will pull some generic stunt like "SHIZUKA TSURUKI JOIN ME AND TOGETHER WE SHALL RULE TANKATHLON", once or twice only to show later in a fight with Centipede that she has a sad backstory and just want to enjoy tonk battles like them.
Then a new threat will appear, like KMM declaring that tankathlon is a disgrace and must be stopped. Shizuka, Jajka and someone else will join forces, win the biggest tankathlon match ever witnessed, deliver thundering speech, side by side, about what their "true tankathlon" means, everybody will applaud, then party, laugh, even invite KMM tankers to join the BIG HAPPY ENDING. The end.
Not exactly what I would like to see, but it's a common sport series scenario and one which main series didn't use.
She doesn't need any help being sexualized.
Are you denying that the NSA and Cultural Marxism exists?
The only thing that we have left is our anime.
Pic is of Darjeeling watching you wank to her
No no, what's going to happen is KMM, Pravda and Shizuka ganging up on Bonple.
It will be a long bloody fight during which Jajka's tragic backstory is revealed, and Shizuka joins Jajka halfway through the match to defeat KMM and Pravda together.
I just want to protect her..
Churchill gave a speech to Congress about America helping in the war, and you guys went crazy over it. Then you got bombed, so you got involved.
I don't really know why you like to think giving a speech to a foreign nation is the same as begging.
