Why did they bother to forbid open vehicles in Senshado when most of the commanders open the hatches and stick out their heads anyway?
Remember how jank the final fight in s1 looked, with Miho and Maho drawn sticking out of the CGI tank's hatches? That's because it was a pain in the ass to animate like that, and doing that for literally every scene would be a nightmare.
Katyusha is so qt.
You are aware that Maho and Erika shot Type 97's and Type 95's with Tigers, and Nonna shot 7TP's with an IS-2?
Because the mounted coaxial MGs can't really be used.
Seriously, in a real war you can expect any tank who spots a commander out of his hatch to throw some bullets at his head and then a shell downrange
It can get worse.
I once saw a pic of the inside of a Type 95 Ha-Go.
Really, the Hetzer is a hotel compared to that.
And the things Pepperoni or Shizuka drive are even smaller...
Armor thickness is irrelevant when your tank has carbon coating.
You can use artillery tanks apparently, and a siege mortar shell landing in an open-top tank would be pretty messy.
Anzio isn't stupid, just too poor / too busy wasting money on pasta to get good tanks.
Stupid would more apply to Chihatan and Maginot, who kept loosing because of their tradition, until Nishi / Eclair decided to change things. Well, the former with help from Duck team.
>Hopefully we'll get a scene with Gloriana.
In which you will get soundly beaten.
>You can use artillery tanks apparently
Karl's inclusion by the University team broke the rules but it was hand-waved.
How new are you?
>Karl's inclusion by the University team broke the rules but it was hand-waved.
I thought the thing that broke the rules was how heavily the Karl had to be modified. What about actual assault artillery like a StuH?
The Karl is originally an open topped mortar whose crew stood on the vehicle totally unprotected, so 100% not legit for senshado. Also, it needed a modified Panzer IV for reloading.
Basically, MEXT guy had the Karl modified so heavily that it was hardly still a Karl.
Nothing underhanded about St. Gloriana's tactics. If anything they are the least underhanded team in the series.
>Basically, MEXT guy had the Karl modified so heavily that it was hardly still a Karl.
I didn't notice any modifications to the Karl.
>The Karl is originally an open topped mortar whose crew stood on the vehicle totally unprotected
I understood that. I just wondered if you could field closed artillery tanks like a Sturmtiger.
>I just wondered if you could field closed artillery tanks like a Sturmtiger.
Never actually addressed in the rules interestingly. That said, the usefulness of small calibre artillery (reltive to Karl) would be questionable in anti-tank warfare against a relatively small number of mobile tanks. Only situation in which I could see it being useful would be if you were going up against KMM with their Maus (although they would most likely keep it in an urban area as we say against Ooari).
Those are all things assumed rather than a case of noticing any modifications to the structural design of Karl itself. I'm not saying you're wrong, but those sort of modifications would have required a serious redesign of Karl.
>She'd be perfect if she dropped the citations and puns.
No, that's part of what makes her Darj.
I love Pekoe so much.
But Russia did win.
The last soldier to lay down weapons was a Japanese.
At least post good girls with good tanks!
>not good girl
even if horribly uselesstank
I will fight you, anon.
Anon, good girls with good tanks, not terrible girls with good tanks!
Look, I know Porsche's hybrid propulsion idea was actually a pretty damn good one and advanced for its time, but they simply didn't have te technology to make it efficient back in 1940.
You know, when even Adolph himself starts wondering whether something is too complicated or not (and we're speaking of the guy who loved the Maus,Sturmtiger and other whacky designs here), you might start to think he could possible be onto something.
I love seeing Erika get BTFO by Maho every time she opens her mouth to say something dumb.
You're forgetting one of the 3 original St. Gloriana girls. Assam isn't a major character, but she's not somebody you'd easily forget either since there were so few named characters on the St. Gloriana team.
>but they simply didn't have te technology to make it efficient back in 1940.
That's the point though; in Senshado the Tiger P has modern electrics and wiring as per the safety rules, hence Dr. Porsche's vision for the tank can be fully realised.
There are no "terrible girls" in GuP.
You're lucky I'm nowhere near my computer.
>still ends up looking retarded every time she opens her mouth?
Except that by listening to Erika and waiting for her instead of taking on Miho 1 on 1, Maho would very likely have won the final.
Yes, Maho wanted to give Miho a fair chance, but that's nothing you can blame Erika for.
Mechs are trash and inferior to tanks in every way.
It's a canon spin-off manga.
The superior work always takes precedence. Maybe one day you filthy non-canon anime secondaries will understand.
They unsuccesfully try to stop Koume on her crusade.
>turn back time
>tfw GuP gonna end up with almost as many spinoff books as the mutants
Does it matter if it is canon? No, what matters is more garupan. I want to see more Katyusha and Nonna adventures, I want to see Erika get rekt, I want to see more Erwin and Guderian history lessons and more Miho and Maho closeness.
>Dont worry Erika, with this injection, all your dreams of becoming as good as Maho will finally come true
>Yes... You can be anything you want on the other side...
>implying Miho would harm Erika
>implying Maho would let her do it.
>implying Erika deserves mercy, let alone life
It's because St. Gloriana doesn't allow students to keep pets in the dorms under normal circumstances. And Darjeeling wants the challenge of refining that adorable plebian mutt into a real lady as in Pygmalion.
Real ladies must naturally wear cute and sophisticated trainers to go with their cute and sophisticated uniforms.
I want to be Erika's boxing opponent and win by a knockout.
Only betas dislike her because they can't handle a strong woman. You're no beta faggot right?
Only betas like her because they want her to step on their balls. You're no beta faggot right?
I found an armoured vehicle which challenges the Wiesel with regards to cuteness!
>You're no beta faggot right?
You're on 4chan, anon.
Right, no matter if canon or not, we get more girls and more panzers.
Erika is only good for breaking her, actin tough won't save her. So I shall violently break her with headpats.
>implying /a/ isn't part of 4chan
Are we all alphas here in comparison to the reset of 4chan? I wish somebody had told me sooner.
I like her because she's so Boco. Always giving her best, always falling flat on her face and always getting up to try and fail again. As a bonus she probably can't understand Boco as a concept or how anyone could still be a fan of it into high school.
The side-on look makes the Otter look like a really jolly fellow, but I'd still much rather have the Wiesel.
That ponytail has its downsides, though.
That was what impressed Maho about Erika in the Erikas pride manga.
She asked Maho for a match, got destroyed like no tomorrow and just flatly asked for a rematch.
Once again, true /a/nons are successful /a/lphas that make a metric fuck ton of money every day. Plastic, BDs and lots of mango volumes aren't cheap. redditors and gai(a)jin are the losers that tried to colonize the site and migrate to /a/. They think neckbeards are their natural allies because they never look in the mirror. They won't eliminate the true core of /a/, a natural /a/lpha that only lives for 2d and does everything including real life duties in order to be able to perfect the love for 2d.
This is quite the autistic work of fiction, anon.
>Somone got into cosplay of Shinzaboro and Hana's mum.
Tanks are trash and inferior to infantry and light vehicles in every way.
is this a fucking marder 3? the superior anti-tank tank
Front on the Otter's pretty adorable too.
>they simply didn't have te technology to make it efficient back in 1940
Just like we didn't have the technology to make a practical ATGM in the '60s. Didn't stop us from pushing that useless pos Shillelagh and the equally useless gun launcher that went with it.
For anyone interested:
if you believe what /k/ has to say, it's worthless, annoying, and almost never works.
I want a doujin of Shiho assaulting her male subordinate from her white collar workplace in a drunken rage (much to the delight of the other OLs), getting herself knocked up and forcing her traumatized victim to take responsibility. Then at the end we see it was all a flashback as it shows Shiho in the present looking as passively indifferent as ever and bluntly stating "And that's how I met your father" to her horrified teenage daughters.
i find it so funny considering that katyusha is a boys name
Are you kidding? Just look at the Type-61! Hideous!
Now they're good at what they're designed for AND they're not complete eyesores!
Too bad they're not so poorly equipped anymore with all that technology they've stolen from us and all the ungodly sums of money they're bilking out of us with complete impunity!
>Darj fucking an old man
What would Saunders deem a "typical american song" to sing?
One would think that after attacking the Karl nothing would scare Chovy anymore.
Yeah, that's a 17-Pounder, and it goes through anything you have like a butter.
