GuP movie soon and new operator-chan photos edition
Girls und Panzer der Film PVs and CM:
The thread was just made, give it some time (and diesel...)
Also, I'll be dumping Groundless Chapter 1 sometime today. It's kinda rough, but I'll let everyone nitpick it to death till I fix it. So look forward to that, I think it's gonna be good.
Clocking off time for any UK /ak/ fans was probably an hour and a half ago.
Hence why I'm here.
A random anon has spoken!
And as a forwarning, I know it might look kinda bad, but there's a first time for everyone?
Anyway, without further delay, Chapter 1 of Groundless.
Yeah, I know. File sizes are a bitch.
Also, behold my shitty paint job.
I was getting taken out to lunch by my boss's boss, sorry
>You will never get to stand shoulder to shoulder with cute Old Guard girls before getting your legs sheared off by cannon shot.
Captcha: French Fries
Yes, just yes. She is /ak/ personified.
After you finish the show come pick up the manga for these two lesbians
That works too
Something beyond the comprehension of your mortal mind
>not talking to the eldritch abominations lurking in the thread
Saki, it's for you. Your friend from at sea!
Just watch the damn show. Keep in mind that the characters and plot only exist as an excuse for tank warfare. The first batch of episodes setup all this plot shit then it's just hardcore tank warfare throughout.
Because you're posting low quality images on /a/.
I posted one, one I got from these threads. Take a chill pill.
Have some Anzio party.
Boys und Flugzeug
and ara ara milfs and /ss/when?
It's fun, plain and simple. Only people who hate fun will hate it.
Well, Commie has lolsubs
which I watched..., but I think HorribleSubs is alright.
But, sometime you just gotta watch all of them and pick your favorite.
When is it ok to bully Noriko?
Never. Leave my daughter alone.
Only if she asks for it, or if you happen to be Miho and drunk.
And... that's Chapter 1 of Groundless!
Obviously, it's not the final... *cough*missingtranslations*cough*
But, I'll be glad to take any comments or criticisms.
I put it in the line-up, I like it. Shame the colors are different.
Oh yes, there is plenty more... that I need to work on.
Volume one has about 180-ish pages with covers and extras, and I'll plan on getting a chapter a week or earlier, if time permits. There are at least 5 volumes, with raws for 1, 3, and 4 that Swiss put out.
Well, you could try switching to a shorter barrel
While I do like the story and I think I'd read more of it,
>THIS COLONEL IS FAT AND UGLY
>YOU HAVE TO HATE THIS MAN
>SEE HOW EVIL HE IS
>HATE HIM HATE HIIIIIIM
There's really no subtlety with these kind of chinese comics now is there?
Lucky for you, it gets better.
A bit more dark later on, but still pretty good.
But I'll hopefully have Chapter 2 out by Monday or so, along with reworks of Chapter 1 to make it look much better.
Naw, more for the colors on top of the trigger guard
I just realized I mistook the charging handle for a sight.
Tried my own version, but not quite sure what colors you mean
What kind of Guns do you prefer then?
You don't see a lot of artillery in Anime, do you?
At least I don't have any images of them at hand.
But here, have my personal favorite.
Remembered this had some, but they basically were used as Tanks
There's not a whole lot of artillery in anime. In real life it's kind of like this:
And it kills you and there's no heroic fight to draw out for the sake of filling out the rest of the episode. So it kinda doesn't fit into anime.
Well, unless you can find a reason to spawn more and more enemies
just to ruin it all, by simply using a back screen to skip everything
One last Bullpup post for completion sake, then back to posting the big guns.
Feel free to do you own edit
So, do railway cannons count?
Still hoping for a translation (if there isn't one in progress.)
I want cute girls and planes.
She needs to be painted, but she's here!
Sounds like a sniper variant. Make it.
I want to read Garupan Manga. I've only watched the anime and the ovas, Where should I start?
Girls und Panzer is an adaptation of the show, but it has slight plot differences, some added character stuff, and it's told with Yukari as the main character instead of Miho. Not completely necessary reading, but I would recommend it just for the added Yukari. Also it sets up Little Army a little bit.
Little Army is a prequel about Miho starting out in middle school and initially learning about the true nature of the Nishizumi school of sensha-dou. It's got some good characters, and Miho is really good in it.
Little Army 2 is a spinoff sequel to the prequel where nobody you know is a main character. It's also good.
Rabu Rabu (Lovey-Dovey) is basically a comedic 4koma about the various garupans. It's actually pretty funny and there's a bunch of implied yuri shit.
Ribbon warrior is a fuckin crazy comedic spinoff thing that's in the GuP universe but features all original characters.
Thanks a lot. I only knew about the first two ones, got lost with the other three. I actually read a couple of Little Army before, Guess I'll start with those again. Here, a Katyusha card I made as token of my appreciation.
Schwerer Gustav and Dora were both a 80cm Kanone (E) which were both given the designation "Schwerer Gustav" and "Schwerer Gustav 2" by the Krupp Company. The third one was called "langer Gustav" (long Gustav)
The name "Dora" was given by artillerymen in 1942. Dora was the only of these Guns used during WWII and the siege of Sevastopol was the only time, it was used.
Saito used a Flak 88 in one episode, if that counts. Sad that the Tiger did not appear in the anime.
If I counted correctly they have
1x Tiger I (88mm Gun)
2x Tiger II (88mm Gun)
1x Jagdtiger (128mm Gun)
1x Ferdinand (which is basically a Porsche-Tiger chassis with a casemate, 88mm Gun)
>Rabu Rabu (Lovey-Dovey)
Lovey-Dovey Panzer and Operation More Rabu Rabu (or, Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu) are two completly different comics, Anon, even if they share author. First one was (is no longer done) a FAN webcomic with the GuP characters, and as such, was 100% unofficial (and crazy as f/u/ck).
Second one, even if by the same author, is an unrelated physical (as in, dead trees, published in mags) comic done by Actas, a canon part of the GuP franchise, and only a fraction as crazy as the author's own webcomic.
There's a king tiger in the first episode(s) of Hana no Uta though. As is the Ratte, and a V2 missile.
Indeed, the Tiger I had a 8.8cm KwK 34, wheras the Tiger II had a 8.8cm KwK 43.
The Ferdinad had the 8.8 PaK43, the Jpanther had the same gun.
>I didn´t counted the JPanther, because it´s not a Tiger chassis. In my understanding , >>133150086 and >>133150241 referred to Tigers.
The powder contains an oxidizer.
This means you can fire a gun underwater or even in Space.
>fun fact: some russian space stations were already equippet with a machinegun, that could fire in space.
Daily reminder that Boys und Flugzeuge needs to be a thing.
Pleeeaase. I want it bad. FW-190s vs Yak-3s would be the fucking best.
I'd love to have her in this celebrating
I want to write a story about a sniper in the real world (forgotten by his superiors thanks to clerical error) getting whisked away to a fantasy land by a spirit, after which he'll have to survive with the spirit's help.
The spirit travels with him through possessing his rifle, is able to read the conditions for shots, and uses her own energy to create bullets for the rifle that he can take from her (a la Huey taking a book from Dalian in Dantalian no Shoka).
Which rifle would you like being shilled in a fantasy land?
Just got back from work, so lets see what was baked...
I'll fix that
Does brutal death and destruction count?
>DURR EDGY SHIT
It has a reason, believe me.
Both. I plan on trying to use the dumps to find anything I might have missed myself, and then correct them for upload to the wiki.
Swiss hasn't finished them yet, I believe. As soon as he gets/finishes them, I'll work on them, given that there are translations for it.
Speaking of translations... Any translator anons on? I need some help with finalizing Chapter 1.
It's mostly some of the sound effects, shouldn't be too hard.
Since this thread is half /k/ I´d vote for pic related
I want to play footsie with Kay
Seconding these, though I'd also settle for a Springfield.
dem volleyballs, man
Propeller monoplanes still the best
Fighters barely even dogfight anymore, it's all just missiles now.
Plane dropped bombs don't work against other planes, bud.
Because they rely on gravity to fall towards their target and are pretty easy to dodge if you're a plane. Bombers are really good at asploding ground targets but need fighters to be successful. Case in point is that the IL-2 was often easy prey for fighters, and so has a notoriously short lifespan (and is one of the main reasons German aces' numbers are really high). But the Soviets could replace them so it was fine.
>uses her own energy to create bullets for the rifle
That ruins the fun. If you insist on doing that you'll have to use a Mod. 31/98 Carcano with a 1940 date of manufacture stamp.
>I'd also settle for a Springfield
You're THAT desperate?
Umm, artillery girls?
Seven rounds in 24 minutes of watching paint dry to idiotic chatter.
If you want the best Axis fighter you're gonna have to pit it against the best Allied fighter. The correction stands.
Well, the Yak-3 was so good that Luftwaffe pilots were ordered not to engage it below 5,000 m and had to use surprise tactics to try and beat it. But the Spitfire was a great plane too.
Ribbon Warrior chapter 13, I mean. 2/3
Right arm of the free world, baby.
7.62 real fuckin nato
I am well familiar with the history and capabilities of the Yak-3. I prefer a dogfight where both aircraft can perform to their utmost, so medium- to high-altitude engagement is prerequisite.
S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]! S[MEAT]!
Anchovy needs to work on her tan.
She makes me hungry.
It's more than likely what was used in that scene was High Explosive Artillery rounds with a VT Fuze, which creates an airburst effect that showers all below with shrapnel.

>tfw no Darjeeling to take care of your morning cucumber
gloriana's tank selection was pretty small
did the british even have any interesting tanks? what ones would darjeeling have fielded if they made it to the final rounds?
of course they had, their cruiser tanks were quite impressive.
I´d assume they would´ve used the Crusader and the Cromwell, alongside with the black prince
>maybe even the Tortoise
The British fielded a lot of quirky tanks during WWII, just google Horbart's Funnies. The best tank in terms of raw firepower and protection would be the aptly named Tortoise which was more or less a turretless Maus. Another good tank not named so far is the vaunted Centurion, although only the the very early versions armed with the 17pdr are allowed which were roughly comparable to the German Panther.
Alien girls that humanity fights against
I oughta sock you, pal.
They're turning emblems and inscriptions to payable bonus for your crews.
Although you're able to buy them off with credits, they're not perm and costs shit ton of credits.
Basically WG telling you to just give up farming credit and buy golds for these bonuses.
Got you covered.
>not hugely eccentric
>not a short stack
I still see Nakajima. Wearing Noriko's swimsuit, but Nakajima nonetheless.
Nah; wrong hair color and hair cut.
A Nakajima is fine too, as are all the Leopons!
They died good deaths
Actually it is the hairstyle, that is too similar to Nakajima's, and also the shape of her eyes, as Noriko have the cat's eyes, while his Nakajima usually have these notable eyelashes, like on your pic.
just redid this, working on linked now
Not a very good pic but fuck you you get the idea
I live in Yurop and the only think I own that slightly resembles a weapon is an Opinel folding knife.
I'm not sure if I should say that on the internet, I don't want to get raided.
As a swede this acctually makes me smile a bit.
Czechbro here. We can actually own SMGs, as long as it can't go full auto, and one is brave enough to suffer through all the paperwork.
Other than that, CCW is common here, even after the UB shootout, or rather, especially after the UB shootout.
Shiho has a nice frontal armor but isn't overloaded.
>/ak/ subs use Senshado instead of Panzerfahren
Czech Republic is GOAT in yuropoorland.
>second best gun laws after the US and better than a lot of US States
>long tradition of firearms design and culture
>gave us the CZ75 ultimately resulting in Gunsmith Cats and Cowboy Bebop's distinctive sidearms
>fucked with the Nazis and Russians nonstop
Are there .pdf files or whatever for this up anywhere yet?
I want one but don't want to pay a license for something I will never use.
>you can't kill people for trivial reasons unlike in the USA
What manga/anime are best for gun otaku? I already chewed through Black Lagoon, Gunslinger Girl, Gunsmith Cats, Boku no Pico, GuP, and Jormungand. I just want to read about people being operator as fuck with actual guns and knowing how to use them.
