Your uncle was supposed to be arriving soon, and since Smokey was still putting together and painting your newly bought F-16 Falcon, you really didn't have anything else better to do. Your eyes are glued to the information screen hanging from the ceiling, detailing each and every arriving flight and it's status. You catch the number for your uncle's flight, which has apparently already landed. That just means all he needs to do is get through customs, which might take a while. If you thought getting through customs as a regular tourist was tough, try doing it as an active member of a foreign spy agency. You can almost picture uncle trying to smooth talk his way past the customs checkpoint. If the customs officer was a woman, then he might have a shot. Otherwise...Seeing as how you still don't see him, you start nervously palming the cell phone in your pocket. Maybe you have time for a quick call...>Mom. Just to check in on her.>Smokey. Check the status of your plane.>One of your wingmates. See what they're up to.>Other
>>36248273>Smokey. Check the status of your plane.
>>36248273>Mom. Just to check in on her.let her know we'll be stopping by
>>36248273>Mom. Just to check in on her.
>Plane: F-4 Super Phantom>SPD: 2>MVR: 1>TGH: 12This meant to be updated or are you going to do that when we actually do the handover Merc?
>>36248273>>Mom. Just to check in on her.
>>36248317When you actually fly the plane. You won't get a good idea of its capabilities otherwise.
>>36248381Ah cool, was just curious and wanted to see if we could access its stats yet.Also, does our paintjob get transferred over in time for us to fly it?
>>36248412Your paintjob is automatically transferred to whatever plane you fly, assuming there's enough time to repaint it, of course.
>>36248273You decide to give a quick call to Mom, just to check in on her. You dial her number in and wait patiently as the phone rings."Karla?""Hey, Mom. I was just back in Oured so I wanted to check up on you." You say. "How are things going at home?""Oh, well enough, though things are starting to get rather tense, what with the Belkan War Anniversary coming up."Oh christ, you completely forget about that. BWA tended to be a very polarizing holiday in North Osea. Of course, it was a good excuse for nationalists on both the Belkan and Osean sides to come out in force, often with guns and alcohol in the mix. While things weren't as bad as they were a decade or two ago, North Osea still regularly entered a state of emergency in the days leading up to the BWA, just in case. "Nobody's been bothering you, have they?" You ask with a bit of concern."Oh, nothing much. Just a few eggs and rolls of toilet paper. Nothing an afternoon of yardwork can't fix." Mom laughs, though you can tell it was partly forced. Damn Mom, more stubborn than a mule.>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.>Ah, okay. If something goes wrong let me know right away, okay?>Other
>>36248724>>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.>Did you accept the compensation money?
>>36248724>>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.
>>36248724>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.we may fight but she's still our mom dammit
>>36248724>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.
>>36248724>Ah, okay. If something goes wrong let me know right away, okay?She's not going to move, the stubborn fool, and we have our uncle to meet.
>>36248724>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.do we need to punch a mother fucker?
Back in the first thread she refused the compensation money offer for our nation when our uncle tried to extend the deadline as long as possible for her to take it.Did our mother take the compensation money yet?
>>36248724>Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away.We can always call the girls for help. Nothing's scarier than an angry and likely drunk A10 pilot.
>>36248850I don't think she'll be taking it any time soon.
>>36249055She said she'll take it after urging her though
>>36248724"Mom, if you're having trouble, I can come over right away." You say with concern. "Oh, no need for that!" Mom says. "Officer Brolin patrols our neighborhood three times a day now, and you remember what he keeps in his trunk!"Ah, yes, you remember that day where Brolin showed off the antitank rifle he kept stowed away in his patrol car in case of "emergencies". At the time, you just thought it was so cool, not even considering if what he was carrying was even legal for a peace officer to own. You suppose that if the Belkan nationalists every got their hands on a tank, it would come in handy. Then again, that gigantic rifle was plenty intimidating, which was probably the point."All right, all right." You sigh. "And you took Dad's pension, right? Please tell me you did.""Yes, yes." Mom grunts, as if she was being force fed her least favorite food. "Your uncle made the arrangements already. You won't have to keep sending me your paychecks anymore.""That's good Mom, you're moving one step forward.""It's mostly because I'd never live it down if my friends found out I'm still living off my own daughter's income." Mom adds."Of course." You roll your eyes, not even half convinced."Also, I do want to ask you something." Mom continues. "You disappeared for quite a while, and grew concerned and called the airline,"Uh oh."and they said you don't work for them anymore."UH OH."So what exactly have you been up to, young lady?" Mom was now in full SCOLDING mode.>Tell her the truth. You're working for a PMC now.>Half truth. You're working for a private corporation now.>Lie. You quit and are looking for a new airline.>Delay. Say you'll explain everything later.>Other
>>36249155>Half truth. You're working for a private corporation now.
>>36249155>>Half truth. You're working for a private corporation now.
>>36249155>I went on a illicit whirlwind affair with a very nice man and currently traveling around the world! no but seriously >>Tell her the truth. You're working for a PMC now.
>>36249155>Half truth. You're working for a private corporation now.They offered you a job and your last job was getting a bit dull, last thing you wanted was to find flying dull so when a private air company offered a job you figured it might be just what you needed to spice things up.
>>36249155>Tell her the truth. You're working for a PMC now.And fuck her trying to guilt trip us.
>>36249240>>36249371As much as I like to TELL HER THE TRUTH, I'm not sure if it's something to tell her on the phone instead of in-person.
>>36249403We're a grown adult.We can and will make our own decisions in life, and we should not have to deal with mom whining and scolding our life choices when she can't do anything on her own without constant prodding from us and our uncle.
>>36249155Your heart stops as you try to figure out to worm your way out of this. After a few micro-seconds of deliberation, you quickly decide to give her at least a half truth. At least it wasn't a bold-faced lie."Ah, well, I thought the whole airline job was getting a bit dull, so I decided to see what the private sector could offer." You say as casually as you can manage. "Better pay for the same amount of hours.""Ah, I see." Mom says, not sounding fully convinced. "And what is the name of this corporation you're working for?""Ah, um, sorry, Mom, I can't say." You blurt out. "You know how these corporate guys are. All those secret back room deals and stuff. Non disclosure agreements and all.""Is that so...""Anyways, I gotta go, bye Mom! Love you!" You quickly hang up and take a deep breath. Damn, that was close. Guess you should've figured that you couldn't keep something like this secret from Mom forever.Finally, you see a fresh influx of new arrivals exiting the gate. From the timing, it had to be from Uncle's flight. You quickly but carefully scan the crowd, and your eyes home in on one particular individual...>Dressed sharply and professionally. >Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.>Other
>>36249695>>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.Time for wacky uncle!
>>36249695>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.
>>36249695>>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.Can't resist
>>36249695>Dressed sharply and professionally.Belkan Intelligence knows better.
>>36249695>Dressed sharply and professionally.
>>36249727That's the whole secret! The enemy would expect an Agent to dress like an idiot to hide in plain sight. They would never suspect a professional to be part of Intelligence!
>>36249695>>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.
>>36249695>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.It's not an act. He really is planning on some serious tourism.
>>36249695>Like a man in drag.A woman born out of a man that can dress like that without anyone noticing is the ultimate spy
>>36249852You mean he's like Chevalier d'Éon?
>>36249883>Chevalier d'ÉonI was originally thinking of Mil-tan from High-School dxd but yeah that guy those make a lot of sense.
>>36249727That's exactly why he's dressed like a tourist. By sticking out so much, nobody will ever suspect he's a spy!
>>36249695>Dressed like every bad tourist stereotype ever.we may need to ask our uncle to help keep the wool over our mom's eyes
>>36249695Of course, searching out for the worst dressed person in the pack bore fruit. He was wearing a massive tropical straw hat so wide you could probably see it from space, a brightly colored tropical shirt with color combinations that could make your stomach turn, simple cargo shorts that served to show off his hairy and wrinkly legs, flip flops, and sunglasses with extremely large, round lenses. You weren't sure if it was some neat ploy at subterfuge on his part, or if his fashion sense really was that bad, but Uncle always had the tendency to dress like a fool in public. Good thing he mostly worked at a desk job and did little, if any, field work."Uncle!" You give him a great big hug, long having grown past the embarrassment of being seen in public with him. "It's been too long!""Ah, yes it has!" Uncle hugs you back. "How is my little Karla doing? I've heard you put the fear of God into some poor Estovakians!""Something like that." You nod and peer behind him to see two suited men with dark glasses staring at you and Uncle. "Did you bring friends?""A 'courtesy call' from Osean Secret Service." Uncle shrugs. "Can't let a senior member from Belkan Intelligence wander about their country unescorted, no?""Not being very subtle about it." You point out."Of course. They want to know I'm being watched, unlike the three other undercover agents in the crowd." Uncle says nonchalantly. "Now come! It's been a long flight, and I'd like to have some actual food today instead of that airline slop!"As you head for the exit, you're still rather aware of the two OSS agents following you. While they were keeping their distance, it was still a bit distracting.>Can't we lose these guys?>Is this what it's like for you all the time?>Other
>>36250147>>Is this what it's like for you all the time?
>>36250147>OtherCan we wave them over? Can we get them to pick up the check from lunch, write it off as an operational expense?They drew the short straws, might as well get some mileage out of it.
>>36250147>Can't we lose these guys?or would that be a bad thing?>Is this what it's like for you all the time?
>>36250204>or would that be a bad thing?All you'd do is piss off OSS and they'd call for extra agents.And that's if they don't decide to start making trouble for us and our mom because we're being an annoying little shit.
>>36250147>Is this what it's like for you all the time?
>>36250196>Is this what it's like for you all the time?and >>36250196
>>36250147>Is this what it's like for you all the time?"Of course it is, a very important person always has escorts. Perhaps we should invite them to dinner?"
>>36250147>escortesDamn Uncle is rollin' in secret agent bitches. They come back to the room with him and everthing?
>>36250147"Is this what it's like for you all the time?" You ask, subtly nodding your head to your two "escorts"."When I travel overseas, yes." Uncle nods. "Though, I've come to accept it as part of the job. We all have to sacrifice something when we devote our lives to our country.""And some sacrifice more than others." You say bitterly."Now, now, Karla. Your father knew the risks when he joined." "I know, I know..."You lead your uncle to a small bar you know. It's not too far from the airport, and was a popular watering hole for pilots stopping over between fights. You've been in here often enough that all you have to do is motion to the bartender that you're taking a booth and he lets you pass without protest. The both of you take a seat at the booth, while your two admirers take a booth near the door, but with a clear line of sight to you and Uncle. The bartender is smart enough not to approach them and leave them to their business.>Start off with some small talk Ask what's going on in the Fatherland.>Cut straight to the point. What does he know about Dad.>Other
>>36250552>>Start off with some small talk Ask what's going on in the Fatherland.
>>36250552>Start off with some small talk Ask what's going on in the Fatherland.
>>36250552>Start off with some small talk Ask what's going on in the Fatherland.don't see why we have to be all business
>>36250552>Cut straight to the point. What does he know about Dad.
>>36250552>OtherKnow anything about an F15 with blue wings?
>>36250733What Belkan doesn't?
>>36250733I think everybody knows about a F15 with blue wings.
>>36250552"Anyways, how are things in the Fatherland?" You ask as the bartender sets two bottles of cold beer down on the table. "It's been years since I've been back there.""Since boarding school, right?" Uncle chuckles. "Still having fond memories of Mr. Fleisher?""Stop it!" You punch your uncle lightly in the shoulder as he laughs. "Ah, well, things are more or less the same." Uncle shrugs as he takes a sip of beer. "The nationalists are still ranting and raving about taking back their rightful clay, and they've only been getting louder with the war anniversary coming up. The 'War of Osean Aggression', as they like to put it.""The way you speak of it doesn't make it sound like it's business as usual." You frown."Well..." Uncle frowns. "The economy has been lagging lately, and the government is desperately trying to find ways to spur growth, and one of those methods is military expansion.""Surely they wouldn't go for that. They must remembered what happened last time." You gape."Politicians do crazy things when they feel their position is threatened." Uncle shrugs."Aren't you a politician?" You raise an eyebrow."I'd like to think I'm still a soldier." Uncle grunts. >What will you do if Belka rearms?>Speaking of soldiers, what do you know of my father?>Other
>>36250907>>Speaking of soldiers, what do you know of my father?Segway!
>>36250907>What will you do if Belka rearms?
>>36250907>Speaking of soldiers, what do you know of my father?
>>36250907>>What will you do if Belka rearms?
>>36250907>>Speaking of soldiers, what do you know of my father?The other topic isn't okay with the dirty Osean pigs around
>>36250907>What will you do if Belka rearms?I'd rather talk about dad somewhere without the escorts.
>>36251151Yes. Talk about Re-arming the nation those men want to destroy while they're around.
>>36250907"What will you do if Belka rearms?" You ask, much more quietly this time, wary of the other interested party nearby."If it's a lawful order by the legally elected government, I will follow it." Uncle says grimly. "Such is the oath I took when I was sworn into this office.""I understand." You nod sadly. If Belka really did go through this, you were facing the possibility that you would have be called in to fight your former homeland. "The question is," Uncle eyes you carefully. "What would YOU do?">I would fight for Belka.>I would fight for Osea.>I would fight whoever Artemis tells me to.>Other
>>36251198>I would fight for Belka.
>>36251198>>I would fight whoever Artemis tells me to.

>>36251198>I would fight whoever Artemis tells me to.it's what mercs do, they fight for whoever pays them.

>>36251198>I would fight for Belka.If the Fatherland calls for all true sons and daughters to fight, I would imagine to the call be hard to ignore.
We are going to be like Pixy huh? Belkan but fighting against them as a mercenary and a major factor in it's downfall. Again.
>>36251198>I would fight whoever Artemis tells me to.>>36251288war sucks
>>36251295sleggar in ace combat when?
>>36251288You know thats what we should have done during the Galm 1 event. Held our fire and just flew as his buddy just for a little bit before hallucination/vision/whatever that was ended.

>>36251198>>I would fight whoever Artemis tells me to.>>Other"We have seen what happens when Belka aggressively invading his neighbor. Seven craters. If Belka doing that foolishness again without provocation, I'll do for what i think is right."
>>36251421it's like Belka is being run by the fucking Zabi's!
>>36251394Osea warmonger leave clay
>>36251454That's a scary thought>>36251473go dance with the angels!
>>36251454Its one thing fight for Fatherland, its other thing fight for incompetent politician.And its easier to put scapegoat to other countries for your country problem.
>>36251198"I'd fight whoever Artemis told me to." You state simply. "You have your superiors, and I have mine.""Well said, well said." Uncle nods. "You remind me so much of your father.""On that note." You lean in. "What is it about my father that you couldn't tell me over the phone?""Ah, so it's come to this." Uncle sighs, deflating like a balloon. "To put things simply, there is a chance he might be alive."You freeze for several long seconds, your shock being the only thing that prevents you from screaming or yelling in surprise. All you can manage is a quiet, but barely restrained "...what.""You see..." Uncle's face sags with years of pent up guilt. "When your father was officially listed as killed in action... that was due to me altering his combat records.""Why would you do that?!?" You hiss, anger welling up inside you now.(cont)
>>36251525Wrong Continent, Lara
>>36251535"To protect you. To protect all of us!" Uncle hisses back. "Shortly before the end of the war, your father and his squadron, went out on a secret mission even I don't know the details about. Whatever happened, they just completely disappeared. They were officially listed as missing in action, assumed killed. Then a World With No Boundaries shows up, with pilots and soldiers thought to have gone missing during the war suddenly being present in their ranks. What would that look like for your father if anybody looked at his combat record? He'd be branded a terrorist! Do you think you or your mother could have lived through that? The stigma of being associated with the same men who tried to destroy the world?"You're left absolutely speechless. Would Father really have thrown his lot in with those men? It's just now that you realize that you don't really know anything about him at all."You don't seriously believe he would-""He was an idealistic, peace loving man." Uncle states simply. "Who had unpopular views on the war. That would've been enough.""But that's hardly evidence!""You don't need any in a witch hunt!" Your uncle retorts. "Do you really think AWWNB's existence didn't have its ramifications? A terrorist group made up of prominent military officials from nations all over the world? Institutions were being purged left and right for possible sympathizers! Now, I'm not saying your father was a member... but there's enough circumstantial evidence to suggest he was.">There's no way he's a terrorist. >Is it really possible he was one of them?>So he might still be out there?>Other
>>36251553>So he might still be out there?
>>36251553>>So he might still be out there?
>>36251553>>There's no way he's a terrorist.>>So he might still be out there?
>>36251553>So he might still be out there?without more information it's pointless to make assumptions, lets just focus on the facts we have for now
>>36251553"So he might still be out there somewhere?" You ask quietly. Screw all that business with A World With No Boundaries. They haven't been a relevant force in decades and you were aware that most of the surviving members had already been pardoned at this point. "It's possible." Your uncle nods. "But highly unlikely. If he was still alive, he had to have surfaced at some point after all this time.""But there's still a chance." You say again."Yes..." Uncle finally concedes. "But I must ask, where exactly did you see this plane with the tiger stripes? I've been poring over the designs of every major fighter squadron in the world and I've yet to see it again.">Lie. You just saw an old picture of one somehwere.>Truth. Tell him about your "experience.">Other

>>36252008A dream fight above the Razgriz Straits with the Demon Lord
>>36252008We had a hallucination of him kicking our ass.
>>36252008I chalked it up to be just a spooky Halloween episode thing but, now its an actual plot point and I don't know what to think.
>>36252008>It was in the demon straights. We saw Cipher and fought him, getting shot up in the process. Then a plane with our father's squadron's markings swooped in and started fighting him while we limped away. Then it was all a dream and we had no damage. But was it really a dream?
>>36252008During the flight back to base near the Razgriz Straits (During the first "Here comes the Snow!" Mission)
>>36252008When RTB we somehow get separated and meet Demon Lord (or someone using his paint scheme) and get rescued by possibly our father.And we are not sure if it real or just our imagination.
>>36252063That still cracks me up.
How wrong is it i want a threeway duel between ourselves, Galm 1 and Larry?
>>36252191Wait until we got at least F-15 or something comparable and I'll behind you.
>>36252191Nope. Let's get an F-15 model ourselves before we do it.
>>36251859"Well, uh, little while back, while I was deployed in Estovakia, I had an... 'experience.'" You say."Drugs?" Uncle asks without missing a beat. "Does your mother know?""No!" You cough. "The drugs part, not the telling my mother part! Honestly, I'm not even sure if what happened was real.""Well, don't hold me in suspense!""Okay, okay." You take a deep, deep breath. "During an air patrol in the Demon Straits, I got separated from my wingmate and got lost in a cloud bank. And then, all of a sudden, I get jumped by an F-15 with blue wingtips."Your uncle's expression suddenly darkens. Every Belkan knew that color scheme, as if it was burned into their collective memory."You mean to tell me that you ran into the Demon Lord up there?" He asks, barely able to restrain his incredulity. "Or at least a plane that looked like his, but he was good. Freakishly good." You say. "And the moment he has me in his sights, a Flanker with orange and black tiger stripes just pops out of nowhere and spoils his lock. They both got into a knifefight and I took the opportunity to bug out.""Was there any evidence of this encounter?"(cont)
>>36252191I wouldn't mind just flying with them.
>>36252220Yeeeaahh....Last time an F-16 was with the Galm Team....
>>36252261"That's the thing! The damage I was supposed to have taken, apparently was never on my plane. My gun camera shorted out, and radar logs don't show anything at all!""Now, I'm a man who normally only takes the truth of what I can see and touch in front of me..." Uncle blinks. "But this sounds to me like some sort of supernatural experience.""Maybe. Probably. I don't know." You shiver. "But there's where I saw it, and that's when I thought to ask.""There can be nothing normal with you involved, can there?" You uncle sighs and then chuckles. "Well, that's all I know. Perhaps he's out there somewhere. Perhaps he's not. I felt I had to tell you eventually, and now was a good time as any.""I see. Thanks, Uncle." You smile.Suddenly, your phone vibrates, causing you to jump a bit. You quickly check it to see that you got a text from Smokey.PLANE IS RDY 2 GO>Sorry Uncle, business calls.>Hey, do you want to see where I work?>Other

"Don't let me keep you, then.""You know, you can come tag along if you want." "It's a tempting offer, but I don't think it would be a wise idea for me to be visiting military bases, especially privately owned ones." Uncle smiles wryly as he nods to your escorts. "Certain parties might misinterpret that and get the wrong idea.""Ah, shame.""Oh, I'll make sure to keep an eye out. Don't worry about me." Uncle grins. "I plan on showing these fine, upstanding men an in depth tour of Oured's seedier side.""Well, good luck with that." You chuckle. "Take care, Uncle.""You too, Karla. Don't get yourself killed or your mother will throttle me.""I'll keep that in mind." You grin.You quickly drive back to base in a car that the company had loaned to you. You flash your ID badge at the gate and are quickly let in, and you make your way to he hangar where Smokey and his team are waiting.(cont)
>>36252804"Well, what took ya so long? This baby here is primed and ready to go!" He grunts. "We even transferred your paint scheme onto it!""I know, I can see it." You smile as you walk up to the waiting warplane and brush you hand against the fuselage. Still the light blue color with white angel wings. "What about the Phantom?""Right over there." Smokey points to the other end of the hangar, where some techs were busy scraping off the last of the paint. "We'll be putting it in storage to be assigned to another Nugget if one comes along.""Ah, I see." You say, looking on with a bit of sadness. Part of you wanted to at least keep the Phantom."Anyways, I already talked to Samantha, and she agreed to give you clearance for a shakedown run." Smokey continues. "I just want to ask. You want to take things easy, or do you want to push the limits?">I'm just going to take it easy.>Push it to the max, of course.>Other

>>36252827"I'm going to push it to the max, of course." You say. "What's the point of a test flight if you're not willing to test the limits?""Standard Pilot Response." Smokey sighs and shake his head. "I'll be sure to call emergency services to be put on standby.""How considerate." You chuckle."Just get in the damn plane."After getting suited up, you drop into the cockpit and go through the standard preflight checks. Hydraulics, weapons, avionics, engines, everything seemed to be in order. The tech on the runway motions that it's clear for you to come out of the hangar, so you gradually throttle up your engines and take position."Valkyrie, you are clear for takeoff." The control tower operator says. "Good luck out there."With that, you hit the throttle, putting maximum power into the engines as you perform a short takeoff maneuver. Given just how light your new fighter is, this was shockingly easy to do. In mere seconds, your Falcon was already in the air. You head over to the open testing area and gain some altitude, ready to put this machine through its paces.>Roll 1d10 (ACM roll. You need a 5 or lower to succeed.

>>36253231>>36253236Planes and Mercs: Dicelog Strikes Back
>>36253409Valk Merc 2, this time in the skies. Fuck you groundpounders.
>>36253221You decide to start off with a series of high-G turns. However, after the third or so turn, something goes horribly wrong. Maybe there was some kind failure in the avionics, or you miscalculated the amount of speed you'd bleed off. Whatever happened, you suddenly lose control of the Falcon as it stalls and plummets to the ground. Stall and altitude loss warnings scream as you quickly try to regain control of the plane. You try desperately to keep your cool, recalling your pilot training. A panicked pilot was a dead pilot. Even as you're plummeting to your doom, you carefully go through the checklist of things to do when in a stall. Once you determine it most likely wasn't a mechanical failure, you throttle up to gain some airspeed and get some lift under your wings. Thankfully, you stalled pretty early on in the flight, so you were close to your max operating altitude when it happened. You manage to recover the stall with a comfortable 10,000 feet of air beneath you, but you're still rattled from the experience."Valkyrie, this is Tower, do you read? We just registered a massive drop in altitude. What's your condition?" Your radio buzzes in concern. It takes you a few seconds to remember to answer."Ah, Tower, this is Valkryie. Just doing a stall maneuver. Sorry to worry you like that.""Roger that. Be careful out there."After making sure you F-16 had leveled out, you lean back in your seat and FINALLY let out a sigh of relief.>The plane still seems fine.

>>36253440>>36253460yeah, now that we've almost killed ourselves...
>>36253532Short answer: NoLong answer: Probably not. The main point of a second seater was to deal with all the electronics because the pilot couldn't do it while flying. Modern avionics are good enough to do it all with minimal input from the pilot, so no second seater is neeeded.
>>36253532I stand by my belief that we'll get to fly an Eagle+ some time soon. COFFIN may or may not be included.
>>36253440It was just us fucking up guys.>Once you determine it most likely wasn't a mechanical failure,I mean there's a chance it could be but I think we are fine.
>>36253440>The plane still seems fine. Keep flying it around for a bit.
>>36253440>The plane still seems fine. Keep flying it around for a bit.WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
>>36253440Well, considering you just had a goddamn near death experience, you decide to throw caution to the wind and return to base. At the very least you should have the plane checked out, since they generally aren't supposed to fall out of the sky like that, and you can't tell everything from just the cockpit instruments. You quickly land and taxi the Falcon back to the hangar, where Smokey is waiting."Back so soon?" The old mechanic grunts."The Falcon just stalled on me out of nowhere when I tried a high-G turn." You point a thumb to the Falcon as you disembark. "Luckily I was at my service ceiling so I had room to recover. If I was any lower...""I get it." Smokey nods, a serious look on his face. "If it's mechanical failure that's on me. I'll get this sorted out."With that, Smokey and his team begin the process of pulling the Falcon apart, popping off access panels and digging into its insides."This might take a while. Maybe you want to head off somewhere else?" Smokey says.>Nah, I think I'll stay here.>Talk to Samantha. Maybe she has an idea of your next job.>See if there's any other pilots here to hang out with.>Might as well go for a stroll. Get some fresh air and observe the other flights.>Other

>>36254053As you enter the club, you notice that it's actually pretty empty. Not at all that surprising, since it was still pretty early and you're sure most of the base personnel weren't off their shifts yet. However, you do notice a pair of Artemis personnel at the bar. A man and woman pair. The woman seemed to be rather plain but dangerous looking, with long black hair, almost blue. The man, well, you couldn't describe in any other words than "rugged" and "charming". The sort of man you'd see on old military recruitment posters, telling you join up and fight the enemy.You quietly take up a seat next to them and order up a beer. You try to act casual as you try to listen in on what the pair are saying."I won't deny that your close combat skills are exceptional, but if you want to be part of Asset Protection, you've got to excel in ALL fields. You got that, soldier?" The man grunts."Yes sir." The girl says quietly. Asset Protection? Sounds like these guys were part of the ground forces.>Ignore them.

"Why'd you like to know, pilot?""Just curious." You shrug. "My name is Karla, by the way. Bravo Flight.""Bravo Flight?" The man blinks. "Ah, you were those pilots covering us in Estovakia. Which one were you?" "The Phantom." You say, unsure of how he would react."Ha! You must have a serious pair on you to fly into combat in something like that!" The man laughs. "The name's Jager, and this here is one my recruits, Tarin. We're both in Asset Protection.">Ah, you were on the ground? What did you do?>Asset Protection?>Wait... that's a Belkan name, isn it?>Other

Jager nods, as if that's all he needs to hear."So, you were on the ground? What did you do?" You ask to change the subject. You actually didn't really know, since flying thousands of feet in the air at supersonic speeds meant you never really could get a good look at the ground."Well, our job that time was to secure the rebels' physical assets before the Stovies reached them, otherwise we'd have to let them take it."

>>36255217This:>>36255239, but personally, I guess some people want to have "the guy in back" freak out while the other guy does insane stuff.
>>36255020I really hope he does do it this weekend. I really want to see if we hand her a Frank coupon
>>36255284>Frank couponI can't believe you guys still remember that one.
>>36255048"Yeah, begin in Artemis does have its perks." You nod. "I can pretty much fly whenever I want, and I'm not locked int some commercial air route or regulation. It's the closest I can really feel to being truly free.""Heh, now you're almost making me feeling like wanting to fly." Jager grins. "Isn't that right, Tarin?"The blue haired girl merely nods."She... doesn't talk much, does she?" You ask."Oh, it's not you, if that's what you're thinking." Jager chuckles. "Tarin is just the naturally quiet sort. Good on a stealth op, but terrible in a social setting. Can't even work up the courage to say 'no' to the guys brave enough to hit on her, so they get the wrong and idea and-"Tarin shoots an angry glare at Jager, though her reddening cheeks suggest there was truth to his words."Okay okay, I'll stop." Jager laughs. "How about this, you ever want to see me or the rest of my guys, you can always stop by our barracks. How about it?">Sure, I'll think on it.>Is that an invitation~?>Other
>>36255330>>Sure, I'll think on it.
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?CLAY
>>36255330>>Sure, I'll think on it.>>36255281I hope adult diapers can fit in on flightsuit, because for first several flight our RIO will really need it.>>36255325Because perhaps we want to see what happens if this really come though.
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?
>>36255330>Is that an invitation~?Oh God I can see the 10's/20's rolling again...
>>36255330>Sure, I'll think on it.Taking it slow
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?Belka must have more warriors
>>36255330>Is that an invitation~?
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?Ooooh myyyyy...
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?>>36255372SNOOOW
>>36255330>>Is that an invitation~?Maybe we can be tarins wingwoman when some hotshot tries to hit on her.
>>36255330Take it slow my friends...ahh who am I kidding>Is that an invitation~?
>>36255330>OtherTurn to Tarin. "Do you have a high alcohol tolerance? If you do, then I'd be happy to do your talking as long as you do my drinking."
>>36255363>>36255376>>36255386How about we tease him then laugh it off by saying you'll think about it?
>>36255239He wouldn't have much to do. Modern avionics obsoleted the role of RIO much like Flight Engineers. Everything they did is now automated or easily directed by the pilot.
>>36255413MUH PEACE>>36255427Awkward socializing blushing Tarin is fine too...And here I was thinking we'd get a Ritsu-like Tarin.
>>36255330>Sure, I'll think on it.
>>36255450Next thing you know, the people of Strangereal make a twinseater plane that has a COFFIN system for both people.
>>36255427I like this.
What is this? /tg/ playing a female character and not going full lesbians?
>>36255451I wonder what happen to her or the guys that hit on her.
>>36255564/tg/ has always wanted the dick.
>>36255564Also happened in Magical Girl Hunter.
>>36255564You know you'd go gay for Jager.
>>36255564We had the option for subtext with Lara but /tg/ went no-fun mode and shot that down right quick.
>>36255579That was epilogue though. Done without any real input from the players.
>>36255587It's not gay when we're a girl, anon~
>>36255567>Tarin gets propositioned at a bar>Misinterprets "date invitation" to "clear and present danger">Later that day, the dude was found in a dumpster, beat up black and blue
>>36255579We had a fight with that too whether to wake up sleeping beauty aka our best friend.
>>36255600Remeber, we confessed to whatshisface. And were turned down
>>36255615He liked it
>>36255330"Oh? Is that an invitation?" You grin as you slide a bit closer to Jager so your shoulder presses against his. "How bold of you, to invite me to your place when we just met!""Just some innocent socializing." Jager manages to keep a straight face, but you can see the tiniest trickles of sweat rolling down his brow. Tarin, meanwhile, looks on with a keen interest, which seems make Jager even more uncomfortable."I, uh, well-"However, his answer is interrupted by the loud blare of emergency sirens."All available pilots, please report to the briefing room!" You hear Samantha's voice buzz throughout the base. "I repeat, all available pilots, report to the briefing room! This is not a drill!"Well shit, looks like you'll just have to continue this later."Well, sorry Jager, but duty calls." You say, finishing off your beer and slamming the bottle down onto the bar. "I'll be sure to drop by sometime.""Yeah, that would be great." Jager nods, regaining his composure with the aid of the inconvenient distraction. "Good luck out there.""Heh, like I need luck." You grin as you dash out of the club.>And that's it for tonight! Unfortunately, due my schedule changing again, I will no longer be able to run Tuesday threads. However, we've still got Ace Combat this Friday, and don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>36255628No we stepped aside to let a friend confess
>>36255645See you next time.
>>36255645Thanks for running!>>36255651And afterwards we confessed once they were in their relationship and were turned down because of it.
'Twas fun, Merc, thanks for the run!
>>36255628>>36255651Yeah. Alice had some issues if I remember the Quest correctly. But in the end, she got married to a person we never meet and became the mother of Lewis and Carol>Lewis & Carol>Lewis Carroll
>>36255691True, but Alice had some frustrations with that or didn't realize her own feelings until it was too late.Her confessing wasn't for her to get the guy but to get it out of her chest.
>>36255645Thanks for the thread Merc. Good fun was had all around.>Jager manages to keep a straight face, but you can see the tiniest trickles of sweat rolling down his brow.GOOD FUN WAS HAD ALL AROUND>Emergency sortieOh just another routine intercept missio--- OOHH SHHIII---
>>36255645Good run as always Merc Com.
>>36255718>Her confessing wasn't for her to get the guy but to get it out of her chest.The point being that the questors made her straight.
>>36255731In a magical girl setting no less.
>>36255731>>36255750Not to mention that we were so preoccupied trying to be a good Mom to Carol that the yuri route became less and less of a priority.
>>36255731She mention she wasn't into girls.Even her scientist friend was surprised since a very high percentage of magical girls were lesbians which Alice does not consider a part of that number
That was a damn good run. Lots of character development here. Was pretty surprised to see Jager, too, I honestly thought that was Ramirez.Ramirez should totally show up anyway for the inevitable Asset Protection side chapter.
>>36255806I remember Ramirez's side quest in VMQ1. (If I remember correctly)He tired to sneak up on a sniper, but got caught.The sniper tries to shoot him, enemy rolled 1, the rifle jams.Ramirez rolled successfully, disarms the sniper and then shoots him with the same rifle
>>36255632That's one masochistic dude if I've ever seen one.
>>36255865He tries to rush a town, gets critted by the sniper. After crawling for a while to get to the snipers building, he storms it. The sniper tries to noscope him but critfails and gets rekt. Then Ramirez takes the rifle and crits some machine gunners.
>>36255899That's a girl anon.
>>36255946He was talking about the hypothetical character being discussed, not the image.
>>36255946No man, I was talking about the he liked it part.I was >>36255615 by the way.
>>36255974>>36255966Mmm. Guess that shows how tired I am. Thought you meant the picture. Anyway, leaving with another Eila because why the hell not.
>>36256006Dat Smirk.Dat Smirk of the One who has conquered the forbidden realms of Sanya Litvyak.
>>36256006If that's really Eila, shouldn't there be more meatbuns?
>>36256117That's a different Eila, Anon, but at least they're both Finnish.
Looking on Jager's response...I really need to make Five Nights on Witches Coven/Spellcaster/Artemis Barrack one of these days.
>>36256117And also, have some more "meatbuns".
>>36256100>>36256117Eila has some of the best smirky faces ever.
>>36256184I don't have any cash to offer you so you can proceed with this, so have some Houkago Tea Time instead.
>>36256210And Eila is like>Let's heat up this cold night, shall we, love?
>>36255450Uh, it actually is a known issue with modern planes slamming violently into the ground, even with advanced ground warning systems. It is why even though a 777i/A380 can be single person operated, they are not, or should I start bringing up crash data on commercial jets.
>>36256545And planes with more than one pilot crash. There is no significant correlation between number of crew and crashes, especially in military aircraft.
>>36256545You honestly can't be that retarded to think that
>>36256184So Frank locked in a room, where Psychomoto, Ice, Slider, Bridgette, Konnie, endy, and Katya try to break in?
>>36256545>It is why even though a 777i/A380 can be single person operated, they are notNo it is not.The reason they are not flown by a single person is because it is an extremely tedius and tiring job that requires several crew members to keep their eyes on certain things constantly and while a single person can do that for a short stint, they cannot do that for days at a time all year long.Your argument that all of a sudden RIO's being obsolete is making every single seat jet ever flown lawndart is fucking retarded and monumentally stupid.
>>36256923>Dat witch lineupSurely you can't be serious
>>36256923Thats one.*Hear Katyusha hummed*Oh crap.
>>36256923Merlin is BB in that scenario; she won't jump him herself, but once she gets in the room he's at the mercy of whoever Merlin decides should win the Frankbowl.
>>36256957Only if Merlin designed the room. >>36256966How much battery does he have to last the night?>>36256982Acuction Frank for the biggest chocolate cake
>>36257023Do we talk the first or second game?I thinking about the first game personally.
>>36257053I only know the first. But Frank needs stronger doors \.But what stops the witches from moving and ramming down the doors even if the camera \s are on them?
>>36257128>camerasFor a moment I imagined Powers "documenting" the whole thing.I hope she doesn't bring Laika along.
>>36257155Hey if it was reverse with Pierce in the room with Janice, Red, and Tarin.Tarin will win every time
>>36257177Bring out the rape oil
>>36257462Shame from get watched on camera?
>>36257556Isn't Katya an exhibitionist? So isn't that kind of moot?also Ice is a M so in some aspect that is also the case.
>>36257592That just means that Katya plays the role of Foxy; he has to use a different strategy on her, because the one he uses for the others just makes her more likely to attack.
>>36257803Rape Whistle then?
>>36257882>>36258012Rape Whistle will just make them abandon all pretense all come straight to Fronk
>>36258042Again, Merlin will build strong walls.I imagine Katya getting to the Fronk or Psycomoto.Mostly due to Psycomoto sword and Katay will want to be video taped.Probably want a copy of it for the occasion
I wish something would happen in '89, its been really stagnating recently.
>>36258150Really, It's been picking up quite a bit since Barin. We're getting some development out of Rosalie, Katya, and Wendy
>>36258150>>36258162Don't forget BIRTHDAY!!! bro.
>>36258162In the last thread we hardly went anywhere, from Ice's office to Rosa and Wendy to about to go shopping. I'm all for character development but its been really slow.
>>36258187Frank Coupons! >>36258192It was a slow thread i will admit but I think Ghost suffered a delay that day too. It happens but it's not as slow as the barin arc.
>>36258192Well at least we ain't sittin flat back at the castle bruh.
>>36258150You're right, it has, and there's no excuse for it. I'll do better anon. sorry.
>>36258408Oh god, you are here.Is your business/problems already taken care to?
>>36258434yeah, it's sorted out. sorry about the run tonight, I'll be working to make it up to you next week if i can- our schedule is all jacked up because of thanksgiving.
>>36258408No problem Ghost just my opinion. I'm sure a lot of your viewers like the slower, comfier threads. I just like muh action and pacing personally.
>>36258458>Next weekNo weekend or thursday thread?What will witches do for a Frank Coupon?
>>36258555Mud Wrestling.Become Hooter's waitressBecause Frank Coupon is that valuable
>>36258555What >>36258458 said. Emergency sortie this weekend?
>>36258555The weekend is, assuming I get it done, something else. I may not. As for a frank coupon, I can tell you Merlin would use it to get cake.
>>36258582>Spellcaster as Hooters waitressesMangafag, your request tab is getting really, REALLY long now.
>>36258582For some witches, I think that is an easy price to pay or would have done it regardless.I imagine a Frank Coupon will have small print that will say 'witihin reason'
>>36258603What about the rest of spellcaster?Though I imagine Frank will have enough insight to put something that he will do within reason?
>>36258605I aware of that.>>36258614Which can be translated as 'as long as my pelvis intact'
>>36258614Oh come on man, you know people don't read the fine print!
>>36258635Anyway, good to see you hard at work with those ideas.
>>36258605Not sure if want....Maybe Bridgette or the girls in general in hotpants.Frank's a hip man.Does anyone have a headcanon of Frank by now?
>>36258635I thought it was non-lewd for the fine-print.Ice will have a non-fun orderSlider will use hers to help ice with a fun thing.Katya...more shopping? the rest idk?>>36258658Frank will point that out.
>>36258689Of course Merlin, Goose and possibly Wendy automatically excluded (from Hooter waitress)>>36258720Because if Frank just write 'Within Reason' its not excluding lewd....God, perhaps Frank will make a long list about do/not do for that coupon.
>>36258771Wendy and Psycomoto will not be excused! Blushing Wendy trying to wonder why she's wearing this while hiding behind her beret in shame. Also I think that is why they call it the small print.one side of the coupon is entirely of the dos and do nots
