[X] She's not a child. Just make it clear that her volunteering scares you.

You snatch your hand off Arizona's shoulder guiltily. Reclining in your creaky office chair, you try to project an air of casual nonconcern which seems to slide right off Wilson's hard grey gaze. “You know what you're doing,” you say to the air over the table. “But...”

Arizona's hands are folded before her on the table again as she looks straight ahead, sitting straight with military composure. Some vague jumble of officious objections with phrases like “risk management” and “sure bets” come to your lips, but your voice fails even as you draw breath to speak them. Everyone knows the time for caution and half-measures is behind you, now - you were arguing as much yourself not a minute ago. Everything you know about command, about leadership and *especially* about covering your ass in a highly political meeting with the CO of 7th fleet itself looking on screams against being too honest, but you can't force the lies past your lips.

“... I just wish you wouldn't,” you say quietly.

Arizona's gaze flicks sideways at you for a heartbeat, then away. She lowers her eyes to her clasped hands on the tabletop and squeezes them a little tighter.

IT'S TIME
>>
>>43203074
Okay, some thoughts.

Option 3 doesn't make sense. She's a flagship, brass shouldn't bother her. She's literally had admirals living in her for years. I'm too tired to try and phrase that in a way that sounds less lewd.

Options 1 and 2 are basically two angles at the same conclusion, the latter being a bit more conservative and making less assumptions. I say that an attraction is near-certain, but whether it's of the romantic or platonic variety still has some question marks. So let's go with basically Option 2, and dig a little more BUT I think we ought to do so in private. Flirting with a battleship/sacred war memorial or even investigating possibilities in front of others (especially others that outrank us) seems like a really bad idea.

I also think we need some admiral-to-admiral time with Goto to talk battleships and their assignations (though perhaps a different word would describe Kongou) so perhaps buying some time (Option 3, though for a different reason) is a good play.

Just some thoughts...

This is neither the time nor the place to have this particular conversation. Though I don't know when/if we will have it. But not in front of the Commander 7th Fleet.
>>
>>43203074
Put her under duress. Akagi saved the Hornet driver because he was going to bite it. Hamp got out of Davey Jone's rack and back with his Hull due to some insane bosun yelling at him. Extreme stress, PTSD inducing basically, such as being dive-bombed (hue) would/might trigger the shipgirl bullshit.

Speaking of Hamp, it's worth remembering that he didn't save our asses by being some amazing supership. He's got the same size guns as the Takaos, and a roughly equal belt. What won that fight was him being fresh and in the right place at the tight time
>>
>>43203322
Actually, this makes a great deal of sense. BUT given that we're talking about Arizona, it's a terrible idea.

On the other hand, that may be EXACTLY the argument we need to disqualify Arizona.
>>
>>43203357
>>43203393

Akagi manifested due to wanting to save the Hornet driver, right? Hamp came back cause some dude was sounding the GQ alarm while kicking the rack out from under him. It's pretty simple really. Full mahou shoujou transformation is only possible under stress.
>>
WHEN

>>43203469
Well, Demetrious is drunk... 85% of the time during these quests.

>>43203477
There is a logic to it, but I find anything that relies on traumatizing a humanized BattleShip is a bad idea.
>>
>>43203416
Insufficient spoop.
>>
>>43203470
And the sheer luck to pop up within the scarily short range band at which his 8" guns could penetrate the Abyssal QM's armour.

A little further out and everyone would be dead.

Quick question someone in this thread might have an answer to. I know that USS Saufley (DD-465) played a role in the movie of PT-109, but I don't know what she did. As the only Destroyer I can find participating, I expect she played the roles of at least one of the Japanese Destroyers present, but I'd like confirmation.

In particular, I want to know if she cosplayed as Shigure to represent the latter's attempt on JFK's life.
>>
>>43203477
Oh, you mean we can bring arizonas hull back by putting her under extreme distress. I see what you're going for but why don't we just ask Akagi how she did it before pulling Ari's hull to the surface along with the trauma.
>>
>>43203477
>Hamp came back cause some dude was sounding the GQ alarm while kicking the rack out from under him.

I thought Hamp came back because he heard the sound of Settle's tremendous rage and hatred echoing through the Warp?
>>
>>43203510
Like I said, right place at the right time
>>
>>43203492
she's back you silly git
>>43203340
>>
>>43203506
100% agreement. The stress idea is probubly correct - although some form of wish magic would have similar symptoms since it requires wanting something very badly, which would manifest in highly stressful situations.

Regardless, bad idea with our present BB. As I said above, maybe that's our way out of this conversation. Put forward the theory that it requires a high stress life-or-death situation and the idea will promptly be vetoed by Admiral Thomas. Leaves us in the clear.
>>
>>43203555
He did. Hamp was also kind of sleeping at the bottom of the ocean. So it can be attributed to the bosun yelling at him to get the fuck up.
>>
>>43203539
>>43203506
>it's a bad idea
We're already sending them off to fight eldritch horrors from japan.
>just ask Akagi
It's what I've been wanting to do but Settle is holding the Idiot Ball.
>>
>>43203470
He does, however, have better turret protection, better fire control thanks to radar, and much better AP shells.
>>
>>43203492

Whenever Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Texas decide to wake up.
>>
>>43203620
Against a Battlecruiser with 13.5" guns at point blank range, none of those factors make much of a difference.
>>
>>43203470
better guns

better FCS

better damage control

more logically placed armor

better AA

you name it, hes got it
>>
>>43203619
I'd just like to point out that no, the fact that we are waging war against Cthulhu's daughters with reincarnated warships is not a bad idea, it's a crazy one because it works.
>>
>>43203657
except for the fact that, you know

his AP shells can actually penetrate it?
>>
>>43203657
The better performance of Hamp's guns and shells did make quite the difference in that fight, actually.
>>
>>43203509


Is...is that an Abyssal nuclear carrier?
>>
>>43203619
True. In the end, it depends on our risk assessment.

Which, need I remind you, is hilariously bad.

>>43203695

That's a factor of the extreme close range the scrap ocurred at. In that close, even the nipshit would have penetrated. The difference is that hamp had a better range band to work with - not that it mattered, since he was functionally immobile for the fight.

>That's a factor of the extreme close range the scrap occurred at.

10,000 meters isn't "close range" for cruiser battles, that's just about the average. Sure you can shoot at things 20,000 meters away with your 8" guns, but it won't do jack shit.

I'm kind of thinking there is different triggers for each shipgirl/guy too. Hamp is a guy who gives very little fucks for instance. Actually forcing him to Give a Fuck may be his trigger. Settle yelling at him to get out of the rack as it was.

Did you guys know the US Navy actually named a ship after Benjamin Franklin? CV-13, joined the war in January 1944. Imagine if that carrier comes back as a ship BOY. Imagine if he's got ol' Ben Franklin's personality. Dude got around, mostly chasing milfs. The thought makes me giggle just a bit...
>>
>>43203746
I'd be more worried about CV-66.

It's litterally the most modern ship that can come back. It had the capability to launch F-14s, F-18s and AEW.
>>
>>43203830
No one who matters cares.
>>
>>43203657
Except that those heavier AP shells have more penetrating power. Which means they can get through more armor and potentially blow up something important. Like, I don't know, the magazine?
>>
>>43203861

>sealing it in a 30-foot high stainless steel containment vessel, towing it out to sea on a barge, and then sinking the barge at a point about 120 miles due east of Maryland in 9,100 feet of water.

Ben Franklin/Houshou.
>>
>>43203804
Hamp came back when the battle-cruiser was at 10,000 meters. It got closer from that point and was engaged by him the entire way.

The Jap guns wouldn't be able to even hole the armor on her without the shells being broken up until about 4-5,000 meters, and that's only if shes completely flat on to them. You can thank their anemic AP shell velocity and shitty steel quality for that. Meanwhile Hamps been poking holes in her the entire time.

the japs 8" AP shell CAN NOT, read;

CAN NOT hole a 9" thick belt beyond 6,000 meters.

Goto coughs prominently, catching your attention. He leans on his elbows as he claps his hands together just below his chin, giving you a long, weary Look over his knuckles. “Sooooooooo~” he drawls, slicing his chin towards the intel geeks at the other end of the table. “I believe you had something to tell us?”

You see Chief Parker stand up from his crowd - your primary contact amongst the Squirrely Ones, He Whom Receives Donut Tithes. There's something about his look you don't like - the stubble's been shaved off and his shirt is fresh out of a drawer, but instead of the vacant queasiness or caffeine-wired, flinty edge you were used to seeing in your own bridge crew, Parker's face is drawn and pale. “We have isolated a reliable sonic signature for identifying abyssals.”

A murmur of excitement goes through the room. Goto slides his gaze back to you for a moment, then back down the table to Parker. “Explain further,” he invites.

“Yes... the...” Parker shakes his head, clearly trying to gather his thoughts.

“Was it hull cavitation?” Tate asks eagerly.

England hoists an eyebrow.

“The computers run sonar returns through computers that try to filter out background noise and biologics to hone in on repetitive mechanical sounds fitting a certain profile,” Tate explains. “But no two abyssals really seem to sound alike so we can't profile them. But no matter what their machinery sounds or doesn't sound like, they still have to move through the water, which creates-”

“No, no, no,” Parker objects, shaking his head and rubbing his face with both hands. “These things can change physical form at *will.* We figured out real quick that any approach based on mechanical profiling won't work. Ya can't just say all their screws sound like this, or water flow over their hull always sounds like *that* and slap a filter on to broom away all the tuna fishes and whale farts. That's a sonarman's approach, doin that ONE WITH THE WAVES thing,” Parker says, clapping his hands over his ears and waggling his eyes upward to demonstrate. “We're *analysts.* We took a few petabytes of sonar bouy data taken for marine research around Japan and just started stripping away anything that varied too much. I mean...” Parker sighs. “Petty Officer Weiss nailed this down, I'll let him explain.” He sinks back into his chair and sits in it like a sack of potatoes.

Weiss rises, a manilla folder held in his hand that he simply bends back and forward, not needing it in the slightest. “Okay, uh. Well. With mechanical signatures - screw cavitation, pump sounds, machinery - you analyze for *frequency* consistency; it's almost always playing the same note but its louder or quieter or faster or slower depending on what the ship's doing, you see?”

Every brass hat in the room nods in unison. Squirrels are like this - once they get rolling on something they *know,* their confidence tends to draw people in.

“That's how computers scan SOSUS to alert an operator, see, it filters by frequency, then applies a second pass for rate, how often the sound is heard or how often the cycle repeats or whatever. And we've got all the profiles nicely sorted because a sub far away moving fast, a sub close moving slow, vice versa, whatever, the physical realities narrow the possible combinations down to a much more manageable set of signatures,” Weiss continues. “But abyssals don't give a damn for physical realities, so - what's the constant?”

Everyone waits.

Weiss brings his hands up to his face, palms facing his cheeks, then flicks them forward to wave his fingers at the crowd. “They're spooky.”

Parker lets his face sink into his hand while the other forms a fingergun to administer himself humane euthanasia.

“That's their *nature.* It's a constant. It might vary in signal strength, that's it. So we just filtered for the constants - filtered by repetition rate. And we found something that never varied save for volume. It was obscured by their own mechanical noise most of the time and you can't autofilter those for reasons just described so it was a real pain, but... we found it. We found a reliable audio signature that marks abyssals.”

Silence sits heavy in the room for long moments as everyone absorbs that. Tate, the SSN skipper, is the first to reply. “So what the hell's the source?”

Parker straightens up and answers while Wiess bends his folder into a tube nervously. “Abyssals are spiritual in nature,” he says, his voice sounding a bit ragged. “And their nature never wavers, never changes at all. They can speed up, slow down, climb, dive, stand on their damn heads - you'll always hear this signal loud and clear, once you're filtering out the background noise.”

“It's quiet enough to be drowned out by the abyssal's own unique set of mechanical sounds, you said?” Wilson muses. “So the signal is faint?”

“At first,” Wiess says, back on firm ground. “But just hearing it marks everything *else* you hear from it as abyssal. You should be able to program quick and dirty filters for their various acoustic signatures pretty quick if you can shadow them for a while.”

“How long?” Admiral Thomas asks.

Wiess cocks his head with a 'hrrrm' sound. “The big problem with abyssals is repetition frequency is so wide. Even at two knots a boat is making 50RPM or so on her screws, shafts, turbines - pretty easy to nail down. Abyssal have that sometimes... and sometimes they've got sounds that are complex patterns that repeat every thirty seconds up to a minute, like the chorus of a song or a blue whale's heartbeat or something. I'd say thirty minutes to properly sniff them all out and clean up the profiles for noise by cookie-cutter comparison against ambient background profiling from your unexposed side, but you could do it in five minutes or so if you need to teach a fish fast for a good shot.”

“... damn fine work, boys,” Thomas says quietly. The Burke skippers seem to have been lost right when you were, around "ambient background profiling," but the submariners seem suitably impressed. “How soon can we have SOSUS looking for this?”

Wiess rubs his head. “Well, I've got the algorithms all worked out, so as soon as you forward the report-”

“Consider it done five minutes ago,” Thomas says.

“Well,” Goto says, leaning back in his own chair with a sigh. “That covers all scheduled business. Is there anything else you want to bring up?”

One of the difficult but necessary parts of responsibility is letting your superiors know if there is a HAZREP of some kind. The admirals deserve to know that their PT boats could possibly go rogue and engage in blue-on-blue action. They can put more stuff in motion for preventing repeats than we can.

It wouldn't be wise to use shipgirls for this. The Japanese girls might set the Corgis off, and we don't have nearly enough USN ones. Even if all the extra hands do it follow the Corgis around and keep an eye on them, it's a vast improvement to our current system of "ignore them and hope nothing bad happens."

You forgot the rate of fire. Hamp's guns could achieve approximately double the rate of fire they (and their IJN equivilents) were designed for, (and they did, on multiple ships in multiple battles) by using the "cue-ball" technique.

Big guns in that era were loaded primarily by operators using hydraulic rams - you had one that rammed the shell into the breech, then another that pushed the powder bags in and seated them firmly behind the shell. Because the shell went in first the shell ram was considerably longer. Operators of the US 8 inch gun found that they could quickly smack the shell with the powder ram and "bat" it into the gun like a cue ball, which sped up loading considerably because the powder ram was shorter, and thus could cycle a lot faster. That the equipment tolerated this abuse without any appreciable damage afterwards is a testament to their construction.

Sheer rate-of-fire meant that Hamp was putting out twice the steel as could be expected, and since his turrets were properly armored he wasn't losing guns to secondary battery penetrations, either. Takao et al had their primary batteries guarded by only splinter level protection. Once you get in real close where secondary batteries can land reliable hits, sheer volume of fire will take out your guns really fast.

“Yes,” you say. “One more thing - my pet Marine is having a hard time containing the PT boats these days, and when they're not being torpedo boats, they're... well, Corgis. They're breaking out of the kennel regularly now, and with just one minder it's proving hard to control them. I know that qualified personnel are in short supply, given all the factors involved, but there has to be some sort of equipment to help with this thing.”

The others begin pitching ideas as the squirrels go scrolling through their smartphones for images of possible robotic solutions. In the brief pause before people start pitching ideas, you lean close to Arizona and whisper in her ear. “Could you go outside and call us a ride from the motor pool?”

Arizona seems to shiver as the tension leaves her. She nods and slides sideways, then back, striding out of the room quickly. You should've known better than to take Arizona - *the* Arizona - into this room, with the history and connotations that ride with her, but leaving her waiting outside the door while you discussed Business inside seemed so insulting you hadn't even considered it.

You've barely risen from your chair, struggling upward on stiff muscles with your cane as leverage when someone catches you by the back of your collar and yanks you backwards. You hear a door slam, and the world goes dark as you stumble, falling ass-first into something vaguely bucket-shaped.

There's a *click!* and suddenly Goto's graven face emerges from the gloom, moodily lit by a single incandescent bulb above you.

And I hope the door didn't just lock us in here.

I hate Hate, but even I have to admit that this probably wasn't his fault, since the Corgi's are self-manifesting outside of the kennels.
And trying to shift blame to someone when there's a good likelihood that there's evidence exonerating them (video surveillance from the kennels showing all previously known PT boats accounted for) is just fucking idiotic.

Woah, hey there, we have NOOOOOO idea what this is about. Cool your tits, anon, smoke a bowl, have a drink, and KINDLY FUCK OFF.

Panic when we realize the closet locks from the inside. Then panic even harder when Tenyruu or Kitakami finds us.

Dude. Trolling seems bad at this stage.

>>43205524
It takes place in 2018, Planefag is just drunk or something.
Or maybe hes pulling fast ones on us.
>>
>>43205549
Or the panic when Kongo finds us.

Do remember that Arizona is at the motor pool so she can't save us.

A matter of hours ago one of Goto's ships nearly blew her own head off.

I don't think Goto's in a good mood right now.

So you're still trolling that man, and hoping that he hasn't found out that the girl is in the hospital under suicide watch and that this is about something else.
That doesn't change things much.

Whatever Goto wants to discuss ... it's likely not something we've anticipated, or he's going to come at it from an entirely unexpected angle. Why don't we mix it up, be vaguely officer-like, and simply say "Yes Admiral Goto?"

Yeah, and we nearly got our dome blown off. I'd say a little screwball is in order, because HOLY FUCKING SHIT WE NEARLY ATE A 6 INCHER AT CONTACT RANGE.

Fuck you, absurdity is the only good response here.
