You ask as you lounge back in your chair."You had just come off a raid against a base controlled by the One Belka terrorist organization. While the attack was successful, it was going to take some time for the investigators to sort things out, especially after all the damage the attack caused. However, you did find that the supposedly sealed tunnel connecting North Osea and Belka was back in operation, something that did not sit well with Osea, further straining relations between the two former enemies. Well, you'll leave that up to the politicians to figure out. Right now, you had a new mission to worry about."All right." Samantha says. "Today's mission is being carried out courtesy of the Dupont Foundation. And yes, this is the same Dupont you're all thinking about."You all turn to Lilian, who just smiles and shrugs."What can I say, my family has always been rather philanthropic.""Right." Samantha nods. "Anyways, we'll be escorting an international aid convoy to Kasna.""Kasna?" You frown. You don't recall hearing about a country by that name.(cont)
>>36976221"Kasna is a small island nation located between the Usean and Yuktobanian continents." Samantha explains further. "Actually, it shares the island with another nation, Biala, which is where the root of the problem lies."The map then zooms in on a rather large island, which is further separated by red and blue colors denoting the territory controlled by both nations. "Both nations have been at a constant state of conflict for the past decade or so. Thanks to international pressure, they've set aside a small demilitarized zone between their borders to accommodate refugees, but lately, with relations souring, they've been blockading aid shipments to the DMZ. As a result, the Dupont Foundation and number of nations have decided to send in a convoy with an armed escort.""Will we be having any support?" Lara asks. "Not that we need it...""Alpha Flight will be accompanying you, as well as a couple flights from other PMCs." Samantha explains. "You will be escorting a flight of four cargo planes through both nations' self declared no-fly zones. Now, unlike the last few missions, you WILL be operating under rules of engagement. That means you don't fire unless fired upon, and only when you have a positive ID on the enemy. We're already risking an international incident with this aid delivery, so let's not make things worse, okay?""AWWWWWW." You hear Lara and Amy groan loudly. "Suck it up." Samantha grunts. "If Bial or Kasna do decide to start a fight, you'll likely be dealing with heavy air and naval resistance, so arm yourselves accordingly. Oh, and one more thing. Weather conditions are expected to be cold and snowy, so be sure to keep an eye out for that."Snow? Wonderful.>Ask something else.>Head for the hangar.>Check the shop>Other
>>36976226>>Check the shopLet's go buy some QAAMs!!!!Also, I'm sober.
>>36976226>Check the shopHeavy air resistance means time for 6AAM MAH CROSS MISS I'LL MAH SACRE.
>>36976226>>Check the shop
>>36976226At some point 'rules of engagement' has to be used to tease-flirt with Lara.
>>36976269If we want a MMM we would need an ADMM setup.
"It's not Christmas if the snow don't fall"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZzW13XxJ4U(Newb drawfag. Been following along and wanted to show appreciation. Heard this song and thought of Karla. Merry Christmas!)
>>36976296Damn. That's good, drawfriend.
>>36976296Very nicely drawn. I didn't realize Karla had a scar.
>>36976296Haha, you might actually give pixelfag a run for his money!
>>36976296there is nothing newb on this work.
>>36976226>Check the shop
>>36976226"So, any further questions?" Samantha asks.Everybody shakes their heads."Good. Get your planes ready to take off in two hours. Dismissed." She says.As you exit the briefing room, you wonder what to do next. Well, you now had a big fat stack of 20,500 credits, which should be more than enough to grab something from Quint's shop."Ah, back to buy something?" Quint grins as you enter, his feet on the counter."We'll see." You say neutrally.SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/2isrdSeZ>Will you purchase anything?
>>36976296>implying that's the work of a newb drawfagYour art is good and you should feel good.
>>36976384Quick Air to Air Missile (QAAM) - 20000
>>36976384>http://pastebin.com/2isrdSeZI'd rather save for either Flanker or Eagle, its only 10K more. But that QAAM...
>>36976384>http://pastebin.com/2isrdSeZ>6AAM (15,000)We're looking at a potentially target-rich environment, so more missile is what we need.
>>36976384How much money do we have?
>>36976483A bit more than 20,000
>>36976483...its right on that post.
>>36976436Yeah, I have pretty much the same thoughts. I want the new plane, but they're so very expensive.
>>36976483>As you exit the briefing room, you wonder what to do next. Well, you now had a big fat stack of 20,500 credits, which should be more than enough to grab something from Quint's shop.Didn't read too closely did you?
>>36976559I would vote for saving towards a new plane but we havn't upgraded our weapons in a while.
>>36976384Okay, it seems to be fairly unanimous, but for final confirmation, you guys want to purchase the QAAM for 20,000 credits?>Y>N
>>36976583>NGonna see a lot of bandits, need 6AAMs.
>>36976583Oh well, goodbye better planes for the foreseeable future.>Y
>>36976625well with this it means the next thing we save up for an buy will certainly be our next plane, we can handle multiple bandits with our 4AAMs, though it will be tricky deciding between which SP to take
>>36976583"I'll get the license for the QAAM." You say."Oooooh, going for the high end stuff, are we?" Quint grins. "I assume you've got the money to pay for it?""Of course." You say, sliding 20,000 credits over the table."Thank you for your business." Quint nods as he hands you a receipt. "You'll have access to it from the company armory from now on.""Thanks." You say, pocketing the receipt."Will you be purchasing anything else?""Nah, my wallet's practically been wiped out." You shake your head."Shame. Well, you know where I'll be."You then exit Quint's shop and head straight over to the hangar, trying to ignore just how chilly it had gotten all of a sudden. "Ah, you're finally here!" Smokey grunts. "Just got word that you're cleared to use QAAMs now. I was wondering how you'd like to load out your plane?">QAAMs>4AAMs>Unguided Bombs>Other
>>36976771>4AAMsHeavy air resistance means multiple targets, so let's pack accordingly.
>>36976771>>QAAMsmay as well get some mileage from them, the faster we can bring down a bandit, the faster we can deal with the rest
>>36976771>>4AAMsAs much as I want a high-end plane killer....
>>36976771>QAAMsWhy get them if we're not going to use them?
>>36976771>>36976920Forgot to link, fucking phone.
>>36976771"We'll go with the 4AAMs." You say. "Expecting a target rich environment today.""Gotcha. We'll load them up right away!"A few hours later, you're in the air and just about to rendezvous with the air convoy."So, you think the Kasnans and Bialans would be dumb enough to pick a fight with us?" Amy asks. "I hope they are. I'd hate for this to be a milk run." Lara says."Now now, I'd much prefer we get through this without doing any fighting at all." Lilian sighs. "We ARE escorting precious cargo, after all.""What do you think, Valk?" Lara asks you.>I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all.>Yeah, this mission could always use a bit of excitement.>Other
>>36976958>>I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all.
>>36976958>>I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all.Sometimes the best thing to happen to you is nothing at all.
>>36976958I'd prefer not to fight but I just wiped my account so eh.
>>36976958>Yeah, this mission could always use a bit of excitement
>>36976958>I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all.
>>36976958We don't go looking for fights, we just end them.
>>36976958>>36976958>OtherHopefully they will only come to us after these cargo safely land.
>>36976958>I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all.But I did just empty my wallet and too.
>>36976958"I'm with Lilian. I'd prefer not to fight at all." You say."Boooooring." You can visualize Lara rolling her eyes."Heads up. I believe we're about to rendezvous with the convoy." Lilian warns.Sure enough, you see four massive contacts appear on your radar. You look down to see four C-17 cargo planes emerge from the clouds, flying in a loose formation. Immediately, your IFF system tags them on your HUD as RUDOLPH, DASHER, VIXEN, and COMET."This is Rudolph. I assume you are our escorts?" The lead plane asks."That's right! Bravo Team from Artemis!" Lara says cheerfully."Don't forget Alpha." You hear Wolf's cocksure voice as his F-22 drops down from above. "Don't leave us out of the party!""Loki here, providing AWACS support." Loki announces. "It appears the other two teams that are assisting us have been delayed due to bad weather.""That's unfortunate." Rudolph grunts. "We're pretty loaded down and it's going to be a long trip. Even with tankers, we'll be pushing our range limit.""But I don't think we'd want to be going with half an escort." Lilian warns."Aw, we can take care of it!" Lara insists.>We should go on ahead. The others can catch up with us.>We should wait for the others to arrive.>Other
>>36977168>>We should wait for the others to arrive.If we want to walk softly we'd better be carrying a big stick.
>>36977168>>We should wait for the others to arrive.so just charge more for tanker costs
>>36977168>We should wait for the others to arrive
>>36977168>We should wait for the others to arrive.
>>36977168>We should wait for the others to arrive."After all, we'll be charging them extra if we do."
>>36977168"We should wait for the others to arrive." You say."Fine, fine." Lara acquiesces. "Well, not like we're going anywhere without our escort." Rudolph agrees.So your hodgepodge flight orbits the rendezvous point for about another ten minutes before Loki speaks up."Contacts on radar." He says.>roll 1d100. Higher is better in this case.
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>36977338
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>36977338
>>36977344>>36977346Do dubs work in our favor?
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>36977338
>>36977338"I'm picking up four contacts. Friendly IFF signals." Loki says. "Looks like some our latecomers have finally arrived."You check your radar to see a new tag called BUTTERFLY TEAM. Soon enough, they come into visual range and you can see that their flight consisted of four Nosferatu fighters. Pretty high end shit, there."Ugh, hate those things." You hear Lara grumble. "Went up against one of those during the Liberation of Gracemeria and it was a NIGHTMARE.""Now, now. Just because they're flying an Estovakian plane doesn't mean they're Estovakian themselves." Lilian advises. "Butterflies reporting for duty!" You hear what sounds to be a criminally young voice announce.>Welcome to the party.>Loki, what do you know about these guys?>Other
>>36977470>Loki, what do you know about these guys?
>>36977470>>Welcome to the party.Unphased.Unphased by Laika.
>>36977470>>Loki, what do you know about these guys?>Welcome to the party.
>>36977470>>Loki, what do you know about these guys?Oh dear god, the moe-WMD returns. Why does Merc reuse so many of his characters?
>>36977470>Loki, what do you know about these guys?Must be some big boys to get those nice toys.
pretty quiet today, oh wait its still the 25th in pastlandia
>>36977470>Welcome to the party.
>>36977470>Welcome to the party.>Loki, what do you know about these guys?I would like to know how they fit into the mission.
>>36977537Clap clap muthafucka
>>36977470We should ask Lara what she thought of Garuda team sometime.
I must question your buying sense guys.Wouldn't the LASM be a better buy? It's a ship killer.We can easily down any other airborne target and for those we have backup, unlike amy.
>>36977470>>Welcome to the party.If this is Laika then Fronk better appear too.Also, if tomorrow Boss merc running again Jager art will be up. I am based him on Matthew Settle, Speirs actor if it okay.
>>36977696Because we are flying an air superiority fighter not a multi or cas bird
>>36977727The F-16 is by definition a multi-role bird. And if you hadn't noticed, we've done ground engagements with her.
>>36977727The F-16 is Multirole.
>>36977724Thing is, Frank is Ghost's character, not one of Merc's like Laika.Looking forward to it Mangafag. Is it going to be featured as an alternative nose art scheme for Karla's plane?
>>36977696Magnet is the ship killer, the others are air dominance, we're mutirole, and getting ASMs would hobble our efforts against other planes, especially when we're expecting large numbers and UGMs do minimal damage
>>36977790You forget we're running on Ace Combat Logic. Where we hold effectively unlimited missiles on a plane and where A-10s can shoot down planes with its gun.
>>36977783Right, i realize that after i hit post button.I'll go for Pierce then.And for the question... that'll up to Boss Merc i think. Maybe he'll make us to complete sidequest to unlock that.
>>36977813Yes we have lots of missiles, but we can't spam lots of UGMs at lots of targets in a short amount of time, they are individual lock weapons, good for a single opponent, not when we're outnumbered in a furball, thats where 4AAM and QAAMs come into effect
>>36977813UGMs also work perfectly well on ships so theres no reason to get them at the detriment of our AtA abilities
>>36977817We'll damn, we'd better start aiming for a triple-S rank (or nearest Ace Combat equivalent) then.
>>36977836We'd only need one against a single ship and its long, stand off range. We can drop the ships easily before they even come into range and fuck up our airspace with AtA fire.>>36977847They do but they need a flight path over the target and we'd definitely take hits from AA fire. Standoff range weapons would just take them out. Whats more, we're also in a flight with great AtA capabilities in Lara and Lilian. A slight tradeoff in lesser AtA to bolster our AtG would not be amiss.
Sorry about the delay. Current post is tripping the spam filter so I gotta figure out where.
>>36977885>and fuck up our airspace with AtA fire.Not if we can't bring special AtA weapons because we brought a single ship killer...We can only bring one special anon, which is why I wanted the F-16 XL upgrade.
>>36977885>they need a flight path over the targetUGMs are missiles not bombs...>Whats more, we're also in a flight with great AtA capabilities in Lara and Lilian. Except they have their own planes, chasing their own targets, they are not us, nor do we use their weapons, relying on them to cover for a deliberate weakness is folly.
>>36977910Anon, you are my brother. I too want the F-16XL
>>36977937I'd like to get it, but it means a massive chunk of money that isn't put towards a better airframe, which might hold 2 specials by default, and missing out on buying better specials.Unless the next tier of airframes we can potentially buy are only comparable to the upgraded -16XL, then its currently not worth it to upgrade our current plane instead of buying a completely new and better one.I'll have my Widow yet
>>36977962I dunno. I don't think base planes would have come with twin special weapons by default.I see that we might be forced to buy planes before we see if they can carry twin specials.
>>36977985>I see that we might be forced to buy planes before we see if they can carry twin specials.That would suck. I wouldn't want to waste 25+k on a plane and then find out its useless and we have to spend another 15+k just to carry a second special when the plane is already pretty high tier.
>>36977985That reminds me Merc, why don't you include the plane's stats in the shoplist? It would be nice to know what each plane is capable of.
Okay, seriously, fuck this spam filter. Looks like I've got no choice but to put up a pastebin and screencap of it.http://pastebin.com/Xz6h4u5k

>>36978067Remember, this is ADC, where a Warthog can waste a Wyvern.
>>36978108Fuck, meant AC
>>36978067It's not the plane, it's the pilot.A legendary ace in a biplane could beat a greenhorn in an F-35.
>>36978160You started with a decent point, then lawndarted so hard.
>>36978160No. I really don't think so.
>>36978021>Talk to the RevenantAsk about their stealth capabilities.
>>36978160Exaggerating too much, but i recall some people manage to land hit on Yellow on their first appearance in shitty plane.And Mobius one eat two Wyverns on OP:KATINA.
>>36978175>>36978181Bad analogy, but still, it's the pilot.
>>36978021"So, Revenant, where's the rest of your flight?" You ask."I'm not in a flight. It's just me. Well, me and my copilot back here." Revenant says cheerfully."So wait, it's just your one plane? What company are you from?""I'm freelance, and one plane is all I need." Oh my god you can just picture the smug grin on Revenant's face."Hey, I think I like this guy." Lara chuckles."Great, we've got TWO Wolfs here now." Amy groans."You make it sound like that's a bad thing." Wolf says, obviously hurt."BECAUSE IT IS A BAD THING!" You and Amy say at once."...harsh." He grumbles. "I have to say, I feel a bit lucky being able to fly with a group of lovely ladies like yourselves." Revenant chuckles. "You're a lot more lively than the stories say about you.">Okay, whatever.>Wait, what stories?>Other
>>36978218>>Wait, what stories?Maintain even tone, internally panic.
>>36978218>Okay, whatever.Don't take the bait.
>>36978218>Wait, what stories?Because one bastard simply wasn't enough.

>>36978218>Wait, what stories?
>>36978218>Wait, what stories?Do they call us a bunch of wildcards?
So this Fronk has no spellcaster witches on his tail?Sounds weird?
>>36978320I believe Ghost already have 'Cease and Desist' notice in hand if Merc also use the rest of spellcasters.
>>36978320He may have taken this job to get away from them for a while. Less drama in a life-or-death situation, or summat.
>>36978218>Other"We're only as lively as the pay."
>>36978367Or maybe they are waiting on his base as POG.....that scary.
>>36978354Not sure why Ghost would have an issue with using SW89 characters like this when most of the witches are based on that one guys' SW89 art.
Wait a minute... Didn't Frank say once that if Ice resigned that he would quit and join a mercenary group based somewhere in Africa?
>>36978354Does anyone have Ghost's face when? Is it anything like when GhostDiva appeared?
>>36978320>Sounds weird?No it doesn't, why would it, this is a completely separate unconnected quest with likewise characters.
We're not going to have strike witches showing up are we?
>>36978423No, this is Ace Combat Quest, why the fuck would you think that?
>>36978423No that would be dumb
>>36978423>>36978432The Witches themselves won't appear. The characters, in other hand, can appear (if Merc feels like it). With proper flightsuit and on real fighter jet.
>>36978423No but I wouldn't be surprised if there are some oddball pilots out there who try to follow Adolf Galland's example.
>>36978448Okay. That would be fine then.
>>36978423Please leave other quests to themselves and don't drag them into this, its rude.
>>36978218"Wait, what stories?" You say calmly, trying to hide your panic. "Heh, the stories that whatever mission you're on, you just utterly turn things around in your favor, no matter the odds." Revenant says with a bit of admiration. "Kind of like a bunch of wildcards.""I see..." You frown."And it's not like Stripes here didn't already have a bit of a rep, and Solo Wing Valkyrie seems to be a popular name being thrown around, too.""Ahehehe, yeah..." You laugh nervously. Were you really getting that popular?"All right, everybody, focus." Loki calls out. "We're reaching the self-declared no fly zone. We're going have to make a call here. Either we go through Kasnan airspace, Bialan airspace, or run right between them.""What's the difference?" You say."Kasna has a more sophisticated air defense system. However, much of their air force is newly bought, so they're not quite experienced with it and there's not a lot of planes at their disposal. The Bialans have older airframes, but they have a lot of them and they're a lot more experienced in using them. If we try to fly in between their airspaces, we can hope that they'll be more concerned fighting each other than us, but we do run the risk of both of them deciding to shoot us down first.""Lovely." You sigh.>Fly on the Kasnan side.>Fly on the Bialan side.>Fly between them.>Other
>>36978470That's the last thing I'd want.
>>36978496>Fly between them.If they are in conflict with one another they won't focus on us.
>>36978496>Fly on the Kasnan side.Time to take down some nuggets.
>>36978496>Fly on the Bialan side.I'll take flying crates over XSAMs any day.Also, Bialan Baby time?
>>36978496>>Fly between them.Target. Rich. Environment.

>>36978367Nah, not at all. I trust Merc. There's stuff I'm not really comfortable seeing my characters of expies thereof in, but merc's cool. >>36978389It would be pretty hypocritical of me, wouldn't it? hahaha.
>>36978496>>Fly between them."So we have nuggets inn shinies on one side, veterans in junk on other.""We'll have to take them all out then.""Or let them take each other out. Either way, I'll see you on the other side, my friend. ">>36978543Of Course.>>36978520The one who scored last buy drinks to everyone!
>>36978550Probably since all we'll get in this quest is a passing meeting.
>>36978496>Fly between them.More enemies means:Greater glory and honor in the sky.More kills means more money.We just need to make sure that the package gets safely delivered as much as we pad our wallet.
>>36978550>>36978583True, hope we get to see them in person and maybe the witches.
>>36978496"Well, you know the route we'll take." You grin. "The one with the most possible targets.""Of course." Loki sighs. "Never want to make things easy for your poor AWACS, huh?""To be fair, you're not the one getting shot up." Amy points out."Touche." Loki laughs. "Alpha? Butterflies? Revenant? Any comments?""I'm all for it." Wolf says."Heheh, sounds like a challenge!" The lead Butterfly giggles."Bring 'em on, I say!" Revenant says confidently. "Goddamn fighter pilots." Rudolph sighs. "Looks like we got no choice but to follow.""All right, setting the course." Loki announces. "We'll need somebody to fly ahead and probe their defenses. Any volunteers?">Volunteer Bravo to move forward.>Let another squadron volunteer.>Other
>>36978639I doubt it.
>>36978643>Volunteer Bravo to move forward.We get first pick on targets.
>>36978643>>Let another squadron volunteer.Wolf, preferably.Guy is good for missile magnet, we can follow behind.
>>36978643>Volunteer Bravo to move forward.
>>36978643>>Let another squadron volunteer.More targets drawn to the scout before we engage. Maximum counts when we engage.Not to mention scouting is ideal for semi-stealth craft.
>>36978643>Let another squadron volunteer.Let the stealthy planes be stealthy
>>36978643>Let another squadron volunteer.
>>36978643>Let another squadron volunteer.Preferably Wolf or Revenant.Their stealth will let them get in and take a look without letting the enemy know that they've already been spotted.
"It was a cold and snowy day..."
>>36978643"Heh, guess that's my job." Revenant chuckles. You see his engines flare as he picks up speed and pulls ahead of the main group. "Let's see how good their early warning is."You continue on your present course for a few more minutes."Warning, incoming contacts. They look like Kasnan fighters." Loki warns.Indeed, you can see a flight of four F-15s vectoring in on an intercept course on Revenant while another flight of eight were vectoring towards the main group."Attention, unidentified aircraft." One of the F-15s begins broadcasting. "You are entering Kasnan airspace. Identify yourselves.""We are an international aid convoy delivering relief supplies to the DMZ." Loki replies. "We are not here to fight and we will not initiate hostilities, but we WILL defend ourselves if attacked."The F-15s slow down, no doubt reporting back to their superiors the situation. However, it doesn't take long before they respond."There is a high possibility you may be smuggling supplies to Biala. We demand that you immediately reverse course and leave our airspace, or we WILL shoot you down.""This doesn't look good." Lilian mutters. "I think we should take them out now." Lara grunts.>Preemptive strike!>Wait for them to make their move.>Leave it to Loki to stall them a little more.>Other
>>36978859>>Leave it to Loki to stall them a little more.See if someone can get Biala in the air, maybe?
>>36978859>>Wait for them to make their move.>>Leave it to Loki to stall them a little more.RoE, guys.

>>36978859>Leave it to Loki to stall them a little more.I wonder if we can record this, to later have people fund a little privatized war to initiate regime change in both Kasna and Biala.
>>36978859>>Leave it to Loki to stall them a little moreBeen a while since I caught a quest by Merc live.
>>36978859>>OtherSquark to Biala ATC"Hey folks, just like to note that you have a bunch of Kasnan fighters rapidly approaching your airspace.You might want to scramble alert fighters.
>>36978859"No one wants to bail out in mountain full of ice."
So question for the future. Do we buy the deltawing and thrust vectoring or buy a new plane?
>>36979055Double special weapons is something special.
>>36979055New plane, I would bet. The Falcon's a decent plane, but it doesn't really hold up to later gen planes.
>>36979055>>36979079>>36979081Either way, when we do get a new plane, I think we should keep the Falcon as a back up plane.
>>36978859"Loki, can you stall them?" You ask."I'll try." Loki grumbles. "Hey, Kasnan Fighter, what's your callsign?""Jumper One." "Jumper One, do you really want to do this? You may have top of the line fighters, but so do we, and our pilots are ready and willing to fight. Are you and pilots prepared to die for nothing?""Orders are orders. We're here to stop you from progressing any further.""Come on, you idiot, THINK! If we were going to smuggle supplies to Biala, why would be flying through YOUR airspace to do it?!"You see the F-15s on your scopes slow down as they hesitate. Meanwhile, you see a whole mess of new contacts pop up from the Bialan side of the border. "Loki? Looks like we've got some more party guests.""I see them. MiG-23s. At least two dozen."You check your screen again and see that pretty much all of them are homing in on the main group. Looks like they haven't spotted Revenant."Kasnan fighters, you will immediately leave our airspace." Yet ANOTHER voice speaks."Go away, Bialan scum!" Jumper One growls. "This is a Kasnan matter!""Our airspace, our concern!" Jumper One's Bialan counterpart retorts. "This is OUR airspace!"Oh boy, the tension in the air was thick enough to kill an engine. You feel that just about anything could pop this powder keg.Hm, actually...>Target lock one of the fighters and provoke a firefight between the Bialans and Kasnans.>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.>Other
>>36979103>>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.Or more accurately, hope them shoot each other first so we can justify our action.>>36979055I'd waiting for Merc to release full spec for planes in store. If we can get two sp weapon for new plane it'd better if we get new plane.If we keep the falcon we can upgrade it later.
>>36979103>>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.
>>36979103>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.
>>36979103>>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.Yep, sometimes the best thing to happen is that nothing happens.
>>36979103>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.Should we start divvying up tasks? Someone is going to need to stick by the cargo planes, after all. Better we get that done now.Also, will we get paid more for shooting down Kasnan fighters or Bialans? There's more Bialans, but Kasnans have better, and therefore more valuable, airframes.
>>36976296Drawfriend, do you have a means of contact for commissions?
>>36979155>>36979155>Kasnans have better, and therefore more valuable, airframes.Very true, but since the Bialans have better pilots, do you think there are more Aces with bounties on their heads?
(Thanks everyone for the friendly welcome, I was>>36976296 Hope to be drawing with y'all more often. )
Rolled 8, 9 = 17 (2d10)>>36979103...
>>36979251Just passing through, nothing to see here. You two factions can just talk it out.
>>36979199Why is she crying?
>>36979184>do you think there are more Aces with bounties on their heads?Probably, but they're also going to be harder to shoot down, even if they have older airframes.The rookies in their shiny new F-15's may be easier to kill.
>>36979271That happens sometimes when you take enough Gs for a bit.
>>36979199Late to the party but, welcome buddy! You got a good set of brush strokes, I give ya that.Hope to see more of your art alongside Pixelfag, Mangafag and Shitscribbler.
>>36979199Also, man, if you're taking commissions...perhaps Colonel Speirs as the Tenth Doctor?
>>36979103>>Leave the Kasnans and Bialans to "talk" and hope they forget about you.>Whistling innocently is optional
>>36979103"I think this is a good time for us to go." You say."Good idea." Loki agrees.With that, the group picks up speed as they speed up while the Kasnans and Bialans continue to bicker and posture. Surprisingly enough, it seems they've completely forgotten about you and your whole group manages to get away unmolested."Camp Sanctuary, this is Santa's Sleigh. We're inbound. Are we clear to land?" You hear Rudolph broadcast."Santa Sleigh, this is Camp Sanctuary. You are clear to land. Be warned, we are in the middle of inclement weather.""Noted. We're heading in." Rudolph says.You grumble as snow begins accumulating on your canopy as you circle around. It takes a while, but all four cargo planes manage to touch down. Finally, with the scopes clear, your fighters also begin to land one by one.As your planes are refueled, you're glad that's all that needs to be done with your plane. The airfield, if you could call it one, was not very well equipped. Not surprising, since the place was a refugee camp and not a military base. Resources of course would be thin. You shiver as you step out of your cockpit, and your boots crunch on fresh snow."Come on! Come on!" You hear a loadmaster yell as the supplies are carted out of the cargo planes. "Let's get this shit unloaded ASAP! We've got a blizzard coming in!"You then go to link up with your squadron, who are hanging out a temporary tent with Wolf and the rest of Alpha. It was marginally warmer in there, but there was hot coffee, which was a HUGE help in this environment."So, guess we managed to get through without a fight." You say."I know. Sucks, doesn't it." Lara sighs."Definitely." Wolf agrees as he fist bumps her."Well, I'm glad. None of us were hurt." Lilian says happily."Well, not much to do while we wait for them to refuel our birds and offload the cargo." Amy shrugs. "Any ideas on what to do?">Go visit the butterflies.>Go visit Revenant.>Go help distribute the supplies.>Other

>>36979565Well, if s/he wants why not.
>>36979591The table is now open for nominations.
>>36979464You decide to go check out the Butterflies. You head over to the tent reserved for them and take a quick peek inside. What you see are four teenage girls sitting around a makeshift firepit roasting marshmallows over it.Well... you guess you shouldn't be too surprised, but you still kind of are."Oh, hey there, fellow pilot!" One of them waves at you and pats an empty chair next to her. "Wanna join us?">Sure. Looks fine.>Nah, I'm just passing by.>Other
>>36979678>>Sure. Looks fine.

>>36979678.....I have so many pictures/doujins involving these girls
>>36979747If she was as young as Grimm she would be 18/19 in AC5 which would make her 24/25 right now.

>>36979678"Sure, looks fun." You say as you sit down and one of them immediately hands you a mug of hot chocolate. Sitting in this tent was oddly... what was the word? Cozy. Really really cozy."So, I take it you're the Butterflies?" You ask."Yep!" One of the girls, the black haired one says cheerfully. "Atlas 6th Tactical Air Squadron! I'm Dawn, the white haired one here is Echo, and the twins here are Thunder and Lightning!"Oh my god they were so damn cute you couldn't even imagine them in a cockpit."Well, uh, I'm Valkyrie, from Artemis' Bravo Flight." You say. "WHOOOOOA!" All four girls lean forward. "You're the Solo Wing Valkyrie? The one who shot down an entire squadron of MiGs, a whole naval fleet, and an entire squadron of Terminators by herself!? ON THE SAME DAY!?!">Yeah, I totally did all of that.>Um, I think something got lost in translation there.>No, I am totally not that person.>Other

>>36979919"Um, I think something got lost in translation there." You laugh nervously. "Um, in reality, I only shot down most of a MiG squadron, one cruiser, and I mission killed on Terminator, all on separate missions.""Well, still, that's awesome stuff!" Dawn grins. "We uh, actually don't have any kills yet. so we really look up to you!""Is that so?" You blink."Right now your squadron pretty much has all of the world's most famous female aces." Echo points out. "So it's only natural, I guess.""I see..." You frown. "So, exactly how old are all of you?""16!" Both Thunder and Lightning chime.Holy crap, that was even younger than you were when you were a nugget!"Pretty young to be flying fighter planes, isn't it?" You narrow your eyes."The Boss said we weren't supposed to talk about that!" Echo hisses as she sharply elbows the twins."Oh right! Sorry!" Thunder clamps her hands over her mouth."Yeah, pretend you didn't hear that!" Lightning covers up her mouth as well."Please don't tell anybody!" Dawn tugs at your sleeve. "Flying is the one thing we always wanted to do!">I'm going to have to report this.>Fine, your secret is safe with me.>Just... why?>Other

>>36980197Your first instinct is to report this right away to anybody who would listen. However, just the way those girls LOOK at you, with those big puppy eyes, eventually convinces you to change your mind."Don't worry, your secret is safe with me." You sigh. "Just... why?""Well.... it's gonna sound stupid." Dawn laughs nervously."We're fighter pilots. We jump into aluminum deathtraps and to shoot missiles as guns at other people like us. We're ALL stupid." You assure her."What we mean to say," Echo takes over with a stoic look on her face. She almost reminds you of a younger version of yourself, "is that it's our one true desire. You see, we're all actually orphans.""Is that true?" You turn to the twins, and they just nod somberly."You don't know what it's like to be in one!" Thunder wails."You just feel so powerless and alone." Lightning adds."And then, we saw the documentaries. Started hearing the stories." Dawn comes back into the conversation. "Mobius 1, The Demon Lord, Scarface 1, Garuda, Yellow 13, and more! People that changed the world! That everybody knows and respects! Maybe if we could become fighter pilots, we could be great aces like them!"The other three girls nod."So when Atlas came and asked us if we wanted to enroll, we took the chance."

>>36980454Something about these girls. About how earnestly they wanted to fly, tugged at something in your heart. Maybe it was because they reminded you of when you were a young, idealistic nugget. Maybe it was some kind of maternal instinct that came with age. Either way, you wanted to see these girls make it.You didn't want them to suffer like you did."You realize this is a dangerous line of work, right?" You say with a warning tone."Of course." Echo nods calmly. "We were already informed of a high chance of death or injury.""And we joined up anyways!" Thunder and Lightning chime."All right." You shake your head and smile. "How about this. Stick close to me and my squad and we'll make sure we all get out of this, okay?""Okay!" All four girls affirm."And here." You hand them your card. "Whenever you got free time, youc an always do a few sim battles against me. How does that sound?""Thank you!"

"What brings you here?""Well, I'd like to at least meet my fellow pilots in person when I can." You shrug. "Your copilot?""Yeah, you can call her Merlin." He nods."H-hi." She squeaks.Goddamn, another young one."Oh my, she's quite young, isn't she?" Lilian blinks."Heh, everybody says. that." Revenant chuckles. "But she's just as much a pilot as you or me. That's why I keep her in the backseat, till she's old enough and picks up enough experience to fly a bird herself.">You sound like a veteran.>Is she your daughter or something?>Other

>>36981257Reminds me to ask how many years after 5 is this? Maybe we can catch the war files being released to the public and seethe truth
>>36981300It's right after the Emmerian War, which puts us at 2016. Too early to de-classify Razgriz.
>>369813006 years, it'll be another 4 before the files will be released and Karla realizes that her superiors were the legendary Ghosts. If that particular part gets released of course I don't know if the President wants to intrude on Blaze n crew's daily lives now.
>>36981300Roughly 6 years. Maybe a bit more. Event on AC6 is already finished IIRC.By the way, how old was the storyteller boy on AC4? 10 years old?
>>36980988"Is she your daughter or something?" You ask.That causes Revenant to sputter."N-no!" He shakes his head rapidly. "Younger sister?" Lilian moves in to back you up. "You two seem to be close!""Um, something like that." Revenant grunts."W-we're just friends!" Merlin insists.Heh. Cute."Anyways, that's a pretty neat plane. Where did you get a bird like that? I figured only a PMC or military could get their hands on a Wyvern.""Now THAT is a long story." Revenant laughs. Suddenly, the base intercom blares."ALL PILOTS, PLEASE REPORT TO THE COMMAND TOWER IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.""Looks like duty calls." Revenant grins."It f-feels like this always h-happens when you talk to a p-pretty woman." Merlin says."I know, doesn't it?"You all sprint over the airfield's control tower, where the other pilots have gathered. There, you see Samantha on a large screen, no doubt video conferencing with you."Hey there, everyone. Glad to see you're all in one piece!" Samantha smiles. "Now, I got a bit of good news and bad news. The good news is that the Kasnan and Bialan armed forces have decided not to attack the camp to prevent an international response."You get the feeling that the bad news was worse, though.(cont)
>>36981463>"Looks like duty calls." Revenant grins.>"It f-feels like this always h-happens when you talk to a p-pretty woman." Merlin says.Zing!
>>36981463"The bad news is that the Kasnans and Bialans have declared a temporary truce, declaring you a hostile third party and giving an ultimatum that you turn yourselves over in the next 24 hours. You may be safe in the camp for now, but you're going to have to fight your way out.""Of course." You sigh."Sweet!" Lara grins."Here's the latest feed from Loki." Samantha points to a map behind her. "It seems like both sides are putting up constant air patrols. Two from Biala and one from Kasna. Now, you've got two options."The screen then shifts again, now showing doppler radar readings of the weather."We've got a huge blizzard incoming. If you want to beat it, you have to take off now, but you'll be fighting the Kasnans and Bialans at their full strength. Your alternative is to wait for the blizzard to hit, then try to slip out in the middle of the storm. At the very least, the Kasnans and Bialans won't be able to bring their full forces to bear.""But won't that be extremely dangerous?" Revenant grunts. "I'm pretty sure some of us haven't had much experience flying in bad weather conditions."You see his gaze fall upon the Butterflies, who now fully clad in their flightsuits, which helped hide their age, though you have a suspicion that he suspects what you know as fact."That's up for you all to the decide." Samantha sighs. "In light of this, ROE is lifted so you are free to engage. Just remember you still have to escort the cargo planes out.""Got it." You nod and turn to the other pilots.

>>36981484>Take off before the blizzard hits.Can't let the Butterflies get lost in the blizzard.That's how the Demon Lord gets his meals.
I get the feeling these assholes are the type that would shoot up a Red Cross/Crescent aid convoy just to make sure that no aid goes to the opposition's refugees.Can we aim for their cockpits?
>>36981484>>Take off before the blizzard hits.And heeere comes the snow.
>>36981484>>Take off before the blizzard hits.We're getting all of them out of here.
>>36981535>Can we aim for their cockpits?NO REI! I DON'T WANT TO KILL THE PILOT!STICK TO V-MAX!!!
>>36981484>Take off before the blizzard hits.The snow can come when dramatically appropriate.
And since we also have to, eh, escort the cargo plane, can we set the tune on this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKupHb-lD5E

>>36981588"Wow that ISAF plane is fighting solo!"
>>36981611And I never expected a Guilty Gear reference here.Speaking of Guilty Gear... Well not exactly...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QkLxmlbPVw
>>36981634Yeah I hear some of dat Daisuke Ishiwatari in there.
>>36981657Driving Kitchen, I think, is one of the many under-appreciated Touhou Circles.Just listen to those guitars.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9kaB5AaSkE
>>36981484After much discussion, you all eventually agree that flying out to beat the blizzard is your best course of action. Considering the kind of firepower your combined wing was packing, you'd all be better off in a head on fight rather than trying to be cute with a blizzard.With that, the order comes out to have all planes ready to take off as soon as possible."So this really is going to be it, is it? An actual dogfight?" Dawn asks you. You can hear her voice is tinged with anxiousness."That's right." You say. "It's going to be the real thing. Just stick close to my team and remember your training, and we're gonna get through this, okay?""Okay!" Dawn says, her confidence restored just a bit."All right, all planes sound off!" Loki barks."Alpha Team standing by." Wolf says."Bravo Team standing by." Lara announces."Butterfly Team standing by." Dawn says."Revenant standing by." "Santa Sleigh standing by." Rudolph says."All right, all planes are ready. Take off and commence operation!" Loki shouts.>And that's it for tonight! We'll continue things on Friday tomorrow! Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>36981698Thanks Merc, Merry Christmas!I'm at Pacific time so I can still say that.
>>36981698Thanks for the run, Merc! See ya tomorrow.
>>36981698Thanks for the thread boss. See ya tomorrow.And ACQ no Yokuzou Mudhenfag!
So what is our "End Goal" in the plane tech tree, and how will we get there?
>>36981698Merry Christmas Merc!You spoiled us with Butterfly Sq and Revenant, thanks for today.
>>36981698Thanks for running, merry Christmas.
>>36981731Whatever anon votes for and by being one of the most badass women to ever fly a plane.
>>36981731Glorious Belkan Clay-reclaiming Morgan/Falken, of course
>>36981731No idea man and I am pretty sure it will be a hotly divided subject when it comes up.I'm personally gunning for either a Su-47 or F-22, but that's just me.
>>36981731FALKEN ALL THE WAYAnd by that we must go through the VISTA, Eagle, XFA-27, and VF-0.
>>36981731End plane is obviously a Cessna, we will deliver packages and people in the most badass way possible. They'll call us... "The Delivery Woman" only occasionally late due to bad weather.
>>36981731I kind of imagine a bit of what Valk looks like Figurewise.Or flat.
>>36981731this is assumign anon doesn't spend all the money on whatever catches their eye even if it's useless.
>>36981787Well, for one anon that distracted by shinies usually there will be one other that try to held the spending.Case in point: last thread F-16 upgrade.
>>36981731The only thing that matters is that Karla has to wear one of those snug flightsuits.
>>36981777Top kekGr8 Sh8 M8 8/8>>36981784Karla is based on female Prussia, btw.
>>36981817Bit bustier based on some of Mercs pictures though.
>>36981828I'm surprised she was so busty.I though she was more Slender.
>>36981844I think it's more fit/average size than particularly busty or slim.
>>36981828>>36981844I think it just that one sweater window pic that may have embellished her bust.
>>36981854Yeah, either that "Jager-vision", or plenty of padding.
>>36981870Jager vision if anything. Karla doesn't seem the type to pad herself that much.
>>36981810please mangafag.XL is good stuff.the F-16 becomes full multi role or packs very impressive dedicated ordinance
>>36981877Unless for teasing purposes.
>>36981885Padding a little to tease isn't bad.Padding enough for the sweater window compared to Prussia's bust is a bit overboard.
>>36981884F-15 is also good stuff, especially since we get a perk that keeps us from dying, even when we're killed.
>>36981901>>36981885>>36981877>>36981870>>36981854>>36981851>>36981844>>36981828I think it's loose interpretation more than anything. I think Karla's more on the average.
>>36981917I thought that was unique to Pixy's plane.
>>36981917that was pixy's plane only.
>>36981917>>36981925Hmm....do you think it's possible for us to unlock an Original Plane Perk for Karla?
>>36981917>a perk that keeps us from dying, even when we're killedActually Shiro, it's only for Pixy Eagle, so unless it's a carryover bonus, it will suck for us.
>>36981935we have to stick to a single plane long enough then...oh wait. does that mean we stay with and just keep upgrading this bird?if we keep cycling through planes, they hold no meaning except that they 'were planes we once used'.
>>36981698Thanks for running! Merry Christmas!>>36981723Thanks!
>>36981957Nah I would like to move past the F-16. I dont think this is like AC Infinity where we can take our planefu and level it up to make it viable (for the most part)
>>36981957I guess that's true, but the perks seem to be rather specific to what the plane goes through.Look at Pixy's Eagle, its unique ability was because he managed to land the damn thing with only one wing.So, depending on what the plane experiences, it determines its special perk. Hypothetically, we could get a starter plane with an awesome perk, but is very situational.
>>36981925>>36981933>>36981940Wouldn't be much point in getting a perk if it only applies to one specific plane that we will never have a chance to pilot again.
>>36981698Merry Christmas Merc.
>>36982003We should, at the very least, keep it as a 'backup plane' just in case something happens.
>>36981986We can always stick to our Falcon and upgrade it for multirole mission and buy something better for air-to-air mission.
Whatever happen to the blackbird we confiscated?
>>36982003thats why its a legendary plane we wont be able to get our hands on again.
>>36982038We got a bonus to our wallets and I assume the company still has it.
>>36982038Possibly chillin in some secure location, with the pilot teaching Not!Powers.
>>36981986well we have a F-15 that was runed specifically for pixy. maybe this becomes our custom variant? i expect they'll be upgrades after the XL. The vidta honestly is the waste since if its better capabilities, we should be getting other planes while the XL brings unique capabilities.
>>36982058>the pilot teaching Not!Powers."So the trick behind hidden camera is to not place it in obvious location..."
>>36982041Then why the fuck did we get a perk instead of just staying in the air by way of QM fiat?The fact that it's a PERK, and not just a one-time thing, implies that it can be used in the future.
>>36982083I'm surprised no one has done that to our female squadron yet?Will Karla will them of pose?
>>36981940>Being this unaware of the manliest man to walk the wastes in a giant robot
>>36982096dude are you high.the perk works once per battle.
>>36982121No, the anon who thinks I ever said that we can hit 0 hp multiple times in one battle is high.
>>36982118I am of knowings the great KAMINA, comrade.Although I'd much rather prefer to use "PEOPLE DIE WHEN THEY ARE KILLED" for the lulz.
>>36982154Shirou is Basic Maymay 101, you need to walk down roads less traveled.
>>36982144Where was thst even said?
>>36982230It was never said, hence the accusations of intoxication.
>>36982118My memory might be a bit fuzzy, but I think he died when he was killed.
>>36982309No, he was killed, avenged his own death, then died.
>>36982321>>36982309FOOLSTHE GREAT KAMINA LIVES ON OUR HEARTSAND ON OUR BACKS
