You hear Loki scream as your eyes are dazzled by a blinding blue light. On pure survival instinct alone, you jam your stick forward and to the side, diving down in a diagonal path to try and get out of the line of fire."Goddamn!" You hear Lara curse, as she presumably takes similar evasive measures. "What the hell is that?!""It's a Morgan class fighter! From the Belkan War!" Loki says hurriedly. "Watch your backs, Wild Cards, it's a tough opponent!"Already, as you vision begins to return, you can see the fuzzy shape of the Morgan pulling a tight turn for another pass."Valk, Stripes, do you need help?" Lilian asks, concerned.>We can handle this. Stick with the President.>We need some assistance!>Other

>>38526209I think the guy just played over the mission music
>>38525767"We can handle this!" You say with slightly false reassurance. "Stick with the President!""Roger that." Lilian says reluctantly."You need help, just call out for it, yeah?" Amy says, trying to keep herself from sounding concerned."Noted." You grunt as you form up on Lara. "Any ideas on how to handle this, Stripes?""I was thinking we take him out on a head on pass!" Lara says eagerly.You're not sure if Lara had actually read up on her history, or if she was just going to her default engagement tactic. Nevertheless, you remember that in the only recorded battle against a Morgan, it was taken out in a head on pass since its ECM systems couldn't protect its front engine intakes.Then again, sensor tech has advanced in the past two decades, so maybe its ECM wasn't up to date. Besides, there were safer ways to engage a single enemy...>Double team in a head on pass.>Bait the Morgan while Lara lines up a shot.>Have Lara bait the Morgan while you line up a shot.>Other

Rolled 17, 19, 15 = 51 (3d20)>>38526321"All right, Stripes, we're going in!" You grunt."Sweet!" Lara says happily. "So how about the pilot who doesn't get the kill buys the drinks tonight?""Pretty cocky of you." You grin, trying to keep your heartbeat under control. Finally, your two Eagles complete their turns right as the Morgan does as well, both sides facing each other down. Your missile lock warning wails as the Morgan's radar spikes you for a target lock. You have no doubt Lara's is doing so as well, but you ignore it, focusing on the rapidly expanding silhouette in front of you, a red box forming around it to inform you that you have a positive lock. However, you see flashes as the Morgan begins firing off missiles.>Fire now and break off!>Try to get inside his minimum range for a better shot. >Other

>>38527370>>Try to get inside his minimum range for a better shot.Additionally, why don't we have Lara fire now and break to chase behind Morgan to keep the pressure on him from behind and hopefully taking out that fucking laser while we worry about his exhaust ports.
>>38527370>>Try to get inside his minimum range for a better shot.
Rolled 10, 8, 7 = 25 (3d10)>>38527370"Fire fire fire!" You yell as you hit your trigger. Lara does the same as your canopy lights up from the missile flash. >roll 3d10 (-1 due to ECM. You need a 5 or lower.)

>>38527779You do know how the rolls work, right? It's been said twice in posts just above yours.
>>38527779Best set so 7 1 5
>>38527779See above posts. It doesn't work like that. Learn the fucking rules, it only takes all of 2 seconds.
>>38527769Dammit anon I was gonna post that
btw, to YF-23 anon.unless Merc gives us Falken or Delphinus or Morgan or Wyvern,consider i will support Black Widow in future purchase.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIhh745FMr0
>>38527805Actually, looking at the rules and character pastebin, Amy's plane needs to be updated. She's not in the A-10 anymore.
>>38527886You know you love it.
>>38527886>>38527905I feel like the only one that thinks the YF-23 looks like shit.
>>38527805>The best of three rolls are taken. Natural 1s will always succeed regardless of modifiers or skill rating. Natural 10s will negate your best roll, even if it is a Natural 1. In cases where one or more Natural 1s are rolled, you achieve a CRITICAL SUCCESS. However, if more than one Natural 10 is rolled, then you suffer a CRITICAL FAILURE.That's all it says in the rules about rolling. Nowhere does it say anything about dice pools, just 1d10 rules. In fact by trying to learn the rules from the paste it tricked him into thinking it worked that way. Honestly I've been here from thread 1 and I still had no idea how he did 3d10s until somebody spelled it out today. No idea how they knew, Merc probably said specifically once.
>>38527929At least it isn't a fat little fuck like the Lightning.
>>38527973Who you calling fat?
>>38527973The lightning is even worse looking than the YF-23, which is impressive.
>>38527969Merc has stated the rules for multiple rollsets several times anon...
>>38527969>No idea how they knew, Merc probably said specifically once.actually, Merc often explain about 3D10 roll quite often (after people argue about that, too).
>>38527969Someone find the archive post, and if you feel like really going through the effort, find every single time the archive post was reposted to explain to people about it
>>38527973Pls do not bully the Lightning
>>38527929To me, it's the engines, it makes me think of someone who injects lots of silicon in their ass.
>>38527905for someone who like Wyvern design, Widow feels strike right at home.
>>38527769Reverse image search is not helping - source?

>>38528185... Point.Consider my argument withdrawn.
>>38528185You do you buddy
Rolled 1, 2 = 3 (2d10)>>38527675You let two missiles and a QAAM fly. One fails to track but the other two get a solid lock. Lara fires off her missiles as well, but the ECM is too great, and her missiles all spiral off uselessly into the air. Meanwhile, the missiles the Morgan fired were shot in haste, and only one manages to track. Unfortunately, you see that it's tracking YOU. The Morgan immediately pulls away, dumping chaff and flares while you do the same.>roll 2d10 (ACM roll. -1 for head on attack. You need a 4 or lower.)

>>38528272>>38528273Welp, MAJOR DAMAGE!
The bad news is Smokey is gonna be pissed. The good news is we wont be around to see it.
>>38528253>-1 for head on attacku wot m8? do you not know how sensor suites work in head on attack scenarios? its the most unreliable method of confrontation because its so hard to track and yet we get fucked up the ass by it....seriously merc I can understand not knowing the stuff behind the scenes, but don't try to make shit up like this
>>38528397Oh shut the fuck up already, we've rolled worse on bigger hits before and we have 3 more TGH points, our Eagle is a strong bird, she can take a hit.
>>38528407oh hey it's this guy again
>>38528407It's because we're rolling to evade in a position where we're closing with the missile head on
>>38528407ACM, not ECM. It's a -1 because there's less time to dodge.
>>38528446Don't try to stop the doomsaying. I'm already wondering what Merc is gonna replace the Friday slot with after the funeral thread.
>>38528457Which is the easiest position to evade an incoming missile in...
>>38528481181st Imperial Fighter Group Quest?
>>38528511I'm confused as well because before Karla evaded head on missiles like a boss because of that.
>>38528481Fuck off with your doomsaying, it wasn't funny when you started, and now its just annoying at best.>>38528457Not that anon but you do realise the hardest solution for a vampire to track is in a head on pass right? In a head on pass the vampire has much greater difficulty keeping track and achieving a terminal solution and moving to execute that solution, its pretty simple to avoid a head on pass vampire.
>>38528551Dice decree as always, past actions and competence is irrelevant.
>>38528567>>38528511HuhWell then I have no idea why we're operating on a -1
>>38528551Exactly, it makes no sense for it to be a NEGATIVE modifier when its the BEST possible situation to be evading a incoming missile in.>>38528585Oh thats bullshit, Merc gave us a negative modifier on an action that is by far easier than any other scenario of dodging an incoming missile.
>>38528567>vampires>implyinghave you even played ace combat?
>>38528567The part where you get unreasonably upset is funny to me at least.
>>38528587Which is why I'm confused and pissed at Merc for the bullshit modifier, he fucking knows better than this bullshit.
>>38528511It actually isn't. You want to get it oblique to yourself.
>>38528567>VampireDude that's a morgan, not a Nosferatu
>>38528629EeehIt's Ace CombatWe're fighting a plane that by all means shouldn't and can't flyI'll let it passAfter all, we're here to have fun, right buddy?
>>38528585I don't give a shit about the dice. It's inconsistent presentation.I still love you, though, Merc.
>>38528629It's a single roll. Chill out.
>>38528567well>>38528609this.This is AC verse, where the missiles are ridiculously have short range and has attention span of Osaka.And IIRC, head-on attack on AC is quite... effective
>>38528658He's given us + bonuses in exactly the same scenarios so its a little confusing that he gives us a - 'bonus' now
>>38528651Vampire is a real world nickname for an inbound missile
>>38528666>Attention span of OsakaDammit MF you reminded me of this >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWNOKICgmtY
>>38528666Doesn't matter what verse it is when Merc's done the exact opposite in the past.
>>38528736Wait, I thought those only count for anti-ship missiles?
>>38528585Which is bullshit, past actions and competence should always be relevant, especially Merc's past actions... Or did he roll dice to stay internally consistent and critfail?
guys, note you're eating up posts arguing with the shitposters...
>>38528772I think it's a general term for inbound anti-anything missile
I would just like to say that the best position to defeat an inbound missile is when it is oblique to you. That is all.>>38528809It isn't.
>>38528585This is a quest, past actions and competence hold no meaning.
>>38528738>inferior RA2 hellmarch and not originalFrank Klepaki really got worse and worse after the original C&Cs. Tib Sun only had moody tracks with no memorable ones, RA2 had good songs but weren't as fun as the original RA's soundtrack.
>>38528853I always prefered RA3's Hellmarch. The first two seem kinda flat and primitively put together. They're showing their age.
>>38528253Your Eagle shudders as the missile explodes on proximity fuse, showering the plane with armor piercing shrapnel. Damage alarms start wailing as you peel off. "Shit, Stripes, can you do a damage check?" You grunt."You got some holes in your right wing." Lara says. "Don't see anything else."You crane your head to the right to see that indeed, your right wing was pockmarked with dents and holes where the shrapnel hit. >-2 hp>10 hp remainsYou test your controls, and your flaps respond. Good, that means your hydraulics were still working. You were still in this. "Stripes, where's the Morgan?""He's put some distance between us, but he's still lurking." Lara says. "Any hits?""Nah, he's a slippery bastard." Lara sighs. "He managed to shake your missiles.Well damn, that meant you were slightly behind now. "What's the plan?" Lara asks.>We'll do another dual attack on him.>We'll split up. I'll lure him in.>We'll split up. Can you lure him in?>Other

>>38528814Thank you for clarifying that, though it still doesn't justify a negative modifier for being in a favorable position to dodge an incoming missile

>>38528941This Morgan is not exactly like the fodder you've been dealing with up to now!And remember, you chose to pull out in the middle of the pass, so the missile had a better chance of tracking you, though it wouldn't deal as much damage.
>>38529100That anon was right. We are pussies.
>>38529074I far prefer RA2 in most respects, but I really liked the soundtrack on 3. Although obviously 2's was very appropriate for the general aesthetic. Particularly the dynamic music. How The West Was Won is a hell of a track to start up during airstrikes.
>>38529100>This is no mook pilot, girl! No mook pilot!
>>38529191Good point, though I think RA3 is generally a 'would-have-been' if it was handled better.
>>38528924"We'll split up. I'll lure him in." You say."Ah, wounded gazelle gamibt, eh? Pretty bold." Lara chuckles."As long as I get half the bounty." You grumble. "I'm trusting you with my life here, you know!""Yeah, I got it. Are you ready?""Yeah. I'll make a hard turn, make it look like I'm trying to retreat. If he takes the bait, that's when you pounce.""Gotcha!"You then swing your plane around, making yourself look like you're trying to disengage from the combat zone."Watch out, Wild Card Four, that Morgan's starting to come around. I think he's taking the bait!" Loki announces.>Dive for the deck. Hopefully the ground clutter will throw off his aim.>Climb to make him lose some energy so Lara can catch up.>Stay level to try and lure him in closer.>Other

>>38529411>>Dive for the deck. Hopefully the ground clutter will throw off his aim.Climbing doesn't seem like a retreat thing, it'll probably give us away.
>>38529164I'll admit I had no idea that it was really the smarter option, I just miss when having Jager sized balls was the general voting consensus.
>>38529411>Stay level to try and lure him in closer.I'll take my chances with the commissar.
>>38529475Having Jager sized balls is good for several things, being a fighter pilot is no where near any of those things.We need to fly smart so we can come back home to play with Jagers balls.
>>38529502>Not flying on the edge like a true BelkanGrey Men pls go
>>38529572We don't give two shits about flying like a Belkan, we flew for Osea you retard.
>>38529595Except that our BELKAN PRIDE is extremely important to us, and the only reason we flew for Osea was the positioning of our family.
>>38529595We are Belkan, nationally>Learned history from ROT 1>Met GELB 2>Father in BAF
>>38529572That's how Emmerians fly you fucking nugget.Belkans fly with precision and order, just look at Gault, Rot, and Silber 1.
>>38529644>Except that our BELKAN PRIDE is extremely important to usNot really.
>>38529703>Forgetting JUSTICE squadron's Golden Nest
>>38529703Pride only matters for state funerals. When you fight fight to win or die like a "hero". Only legends tell their tales to their grandchildren.
>>38529734Ah fuck I thought you said Grun, master tactician
>>38529502I'm kind of on the fence about that there are a lot of different kinds of aces out there but they pretty much all have fat sacks. But I agree flying smart is most important, but I don't really think it has to conflict with ballsiness when it's due. This case is a great example, flying into minimum range would have been the safer option, but people just voted for the one that sounded safer. And a whole lot of anons seemed to know it would have been safer not to break off early after the vote was made, could've said something earlier.
>>38529411You pull your stick up in a steep climb. Not enough to risk stalling, but just enough that the Morgan would have to sacrifice a lot of airspeed to stay on your tail. A beep on your radar indicates that he's taking the bait, as he climbs after you. "Stripes, I hope you're in position." You grunt."Give me eight more seconds!" Lara responds."Warning, heat buildup detected! He's going to fire his laser!" Loki warns.You mind races for available options. You could hit afterburners and go into a powerclimb to try and shake his aim and force him to sacrifice more airspeed. However, going into a dive would probably be more effective at getting out of line of sight, but that might make it tougher for Lara to get a lock on him. Or you could be crazy and flip to engage him head on...>Power climb to break his aim and lose more energy.>Dive to get out of his line of fire.>Flip to engage.>Other

>>38530284The Morgan fires its laser, but you can tell it's a rushed snap shot, as it goes high, passing just above your canopy by a few dozen meters, but even then, you can feel the heat bleeding through your canopy. However, you try to ignore the searing beam and focus on your missiles, which streak in, homing in on the biggest heat source they can detect.Three missiles simultaneously plow in the Morgan's Tactical Laser System, blowing the module to pieces and engulfing the Morgan in fire. For a second, you think you've downed it but hear the voice again."Damnit!" The Morgan's pilot curses she detaches the smoldering ruins of the TLS and continues her climb, shooting past you up into the sky. "HAHA, nice one, Valk!" Lara whoops as her Eagle flashes by in pursuit. "Don't worry, I got this!"You dive to gain more airspeed and turn to try and get back on the Morgan's trail. You can see it trying to shake Lara's pursuit as she closes in."Wild Cards, I'm picking up additional bogeys, most likely reinforcements." Loki warns. "A pair of Su-37s. ETA one minute."Well, damn.>Let Lara have her moment.

>>38530615"All right, I'm heading to intercept those Terminators. Stripes, I'm sure you can handle that Morgan?""Yeah, that damage you caused fucked up its stealth signature, so I can get a better fix of it on radar!" Lara says happily. "Go do your thing!" You turn away to head off the two approaching Terminators. You consider your options on how to approach them. You could go in from high, which might spook them off, or at the very least give you a better position over them. However, they'd definitely see you coming.On the other hand, you could go down low to try and stay off their radar, which would give you a better ambush position. However, if they detected you, they'd have the advantage over you...>Go high.>Go low.>Other
>>38530945>>Go high.Spooking them off would be just as well as downing them.

Once their own radars pick you up, you're already in a superior position over them. You see the Terminators turn sharply once they detect you, flying in a circle as if trying to decide whether to press on or not.

No way anybody could have survived that.Meanwhile, the trailing Terminators fires off several missiles, but it's obvious he fired them off prematurely, and none of them track. You switch to guns and fire off a volley, stitching cannon fire straight down the left wing root and shearing the plane almost in half. The cockpit explodes as the pilot ejects, and you turn away, musing to yourself that One Belka must be drowning in equipment if they could afford to allocate expensive fighters like Terminators to nuggets like these. Where the hell were they getting it all?However, your train of thought is interrupted by a MASSIVE explosion behind you, nearly blinding you yet again.Lara!(cont)
>>38532029You wheel your Eagle around and put into full afterburner."Loki, what the fuck was that?!" You yell."Some kind of high yield bomb!" Loki says. "It's caused a lot of interference!

You think you can check my plane for a second?"You then see Lara's Eagle limping through the air. You wince at the damage. Large patches of paint were either melted or completely burned off, while one of her tails was completely gone and the flaps on her left wing were moving erratically. Fortunately, the cockpit looked intact."You look really beat up. How are your controls?" You ask."Workable." Lara grunts.

You bank your fighter a bit to get a better view, and sure enough, you can see the Morgan, or what's left of it. However, instead of crashing, it looked more like it touched down in a semi-controlled landing, judging from its relatively intact state and the skid marks behind it. You could even see the pilot milling about in the sands. She then stops and looks up. You can't see the pilot's face, but you can FEEL the HATE rolling off of her and permeating your plane like radar waves. Well, it looked like she was going to be stuck down there for the foreseeable future."Well, good job, Stripes, looks like you bagged the Morgan.""Nice!" Lara says happily.

>>38532665>TLS>On anything but the Morgan/FALKENBuddy, you do know those planes were specifically built to handle it, and ours wasn't, right?
>>38532669I support this. Remember that time we grabbed an SR-71 out of the air?
>>38532650No, we started in Phantom because we are rookie, newbie, nugget, FNG on our new company.And they have this quirky idea that you should earn your own planes based on your worth as pilot.>>38532692It will be a hilarious experiment though.
>>38532686>Filthy traitor bitch!!!!
>>38532692uh...yeah, but...DAMMIT ONLY A MAN CAN DREAM ANON
>>38532650That's an Ace Combat staple, and frankly a convenient and somewhat realistic plot deviceYou don't see the USAF throwing nuggets straight into Falcons or Eagles, do you?
>>38532712Oh sorry anon, I meant to put that as the MORGAN pilot's line to karla.
>>38532704>And they have this quirky idea that you should earn your own planes based on your worth as pilot.Nothing wrong with that. Why give a state of the art fighter to an as yet unknown element? The only thing they knew about Karla when they recruited her was that she flew for the Oseans during the Circum-Pacific war and that she flew private jets after that.
>>38532719They do just out of flight school, yeah.
>>38532692Speaking of which, isn't the ADDX-01's TLS system just taped on the top of the ship? Like all of it's cooling and battery and stuff seperated. Can't we do that?
>>38532719Uhh, yes, we do after they complete fighter training on the T-38 Talon.Because those are our 30 yr old fighters Anon.
Christ if we actually start flying the Morgan...Karla will truly be the Pixy of this generation, cept for the founding a terrorist organization.Yet.
>>38532719Don't you Americans have training craft? We Brits have the Hawk and from there we usually go right to the Typhoons or the Tornadoes and the F-35Bs once they start arriving I'm sure
>>38532722haha, it's cool, I'd actually be interested in seeing Karla reconcile that relationship with her countrymen who would rather fight for Belka than maintain peace for their home, since they both clearly love their country as much as eachother.
>>38532736Bruh, the TLS system can be stressful on standard airframes. I don't think even advanced airframes like the ACTIVE can hold it.You'd need a purpose-built frame for it.
>>38532734>>38532741I was trying to say when you're literally a fresh nugget without even flight schoolIt's a comparison that seems to have failed on my end
>>38532730I don't say its wrong per se, just kinda funny, especially the part where you must 'buy' your own next plane.>>38532750>Christ if we actually start flying the Morgan..Other Wilcard better get something to catch on too.>cept for the founding a terrorist organization.founding her own PMC squadron maybe?
>>38532704Just saying an F-16/or something isn't that much more of an investment and is a decent step up. My main beef with "The Company" is mostly that it doesn't seem to do a whole lot. Granted there are quest mechanics and dozens of other things involved and I'm posting from my phone, but I'm not feeling the love from them yeah?
>>38532741I suddenly remembered something.Something about south korea developing a light fighter/attacker, and them using it as an attacker. The twist is, the indonesia (or was it india?) Bought them as a high-grade "fighter". What's even more funny is that the US is considering to buy this as a TRAINER.What the hell america.
>>38532763>New Bone Arrows eh? I'm Karla Weiss, and I head this organization. We'll be partnering up with Martinez Security for this mission, so don't screw up.
>>38532762You learn how to fly in a trainer plane. Once you learn how to fly, they toss you into big boy planes. Two seaters, that have an instructor in the back.
>>38532782Well, the T/F/A-50 Golden Eagle does have its merits.It was designed to play the role of trainer and multi-role all weather fighter after all.I should know, my country is buying 12 of them.
>>38532771Maybe because this is Ace Combat verse, and except Ace Combat 3 Electrosphere where our starting plane is futuristic Mig-29/33 and EF2000, all nuggets always start on F-5 or Phantom.Straight getting into F-16 is unusual in AC verse.
>>38532762It fails because Karla want a nugget except in being new to the company. They scouted her right? The new fighter thing doesn't make sense that way, at least not to me.
>>38532782We have done this before-our Goshawks were modified BAE HawksAs for the KAI T-50 (NOT the PAK-FA), it looks like we're buying a dedicated trainer variant, while Indonesia picked up an attacker build
>>38532795T/F/A? Isn't T-50 and FA-50 different and stuff?
>>38532820Eh, should've seperated those two. Good spot, anon.
>>38532787Yeah, I guess what I was aiming at is that they don't throw you straight into the fancy, shiny, expensive toys straight offThey warm you up with older two-seaters and other instructional aircraft first
>>38532819>T-50 golden eagle>PAK-FAIs ROK secretly with RUSSIA or sometuindammit putin
>>38532814I guess that means the Emmerian military has either a) much more money to throw around or b) much more faith in its pilots as Garuda started in an F-16
>>38532814AC6 "Go dance with the angels" starts you in an F-16. That's the "latest" in the Strangereal timeline as far as I know.
>>38532782>>38532795>>38532819>>38532820The T-50 and F/A-50 Golden Eagle is a cute little bugger indeed. Same airframe, one has provisions for a better radar for Air to Air work. America doesn't actually have a production line open of a lightweight trainer/attack jet, so your choices are BAe Hawk 100, L-39, Yak-130 or something old and shitty, such as ex-Luftwaffe or ex-Armee de l'Air Alpha Jets.South Koreans found a nice export market, and filled their own role too.
>>38532845Aside from Korea considering the Su-35 at one time, the KAI T-50 and the Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA are two completely different jets. The former is a light attacker with a trainer variant, the latter is Russia's first fully operational foray into 5th gen jets
>>38532831Aren't two seates better in ters of survivability? Like the backseater taking a load off the front seat by doing the targeting and flareing for him.Captcha:hattNit's speaking to us!
>>38532855I just hope the T-50PH variant isn't gonna be delayed. I want to see the Blue Diamonds back in the air.
>>38532831The two seater planes are fully functional models of their type. They aren't dumbed down, they only have an additional seat.
>>38532855I wonder how many aliens are dying in their underground labs from torture now. At least less than skunkworks I guess.
>>38532864In older airframes, two seaters have the advantage of a RIO/WSO/Copilot/whatever he's called handling targeting and other flight systemsOur 5th gens are probably single-seat because LockMart's managed to make operations efficient enough they think one guy can handle it
>>38532470"Thanks, Lara." You grin. "Guess the first round's on me.""Heh, I'm looking forward to it!" Lara chuckles. "So uh, what do we do about that Morgan pilot?""Call in a CSAR team, I suppose." You say. "Dunno if they can get out here before her own people get there, but might as well try.""Heh, always so nice." Lara giggles."No, it's just the honorable thing to do!" You try to maintain."Uh huh. Sure." Lara laughs. "Better pick up the pace, girls, or you two will be left behind." Loki reminds you both."Yes, Mom." Lara says. You can almost imagine her rolling her eyes a the comment. The both of you finally bank away to join up with the rest of the flight. Apparently another flight tried to jump them, but Lilian and Amy managed to chase them off."Looks like you've gotten your fair share of fun." You grin. "Hope you didn't have too much.""It was rather simple, really." Lilian says happily. "And Magnet was a great help!""See, Magnet?""Yeah, yeah." Amy grumbles. "No need to rub it in."The rest of the journey is rather uneventful. Whatever the Butterflies did, they were rather successful in keeping the heat off of you and the flight passes into Belkan territory without issue. A pair of Belkan Flankers greet you at the border and escort you all the way to Dinsmark. <<MISSION ACCOMPLISHED>>KILLS:Su-37 Terminator: 2 x 1500 = 3000Morgan ACE: 0.5 x 8000 = 4000Total: 7000Treasury: 9000---(cont)
>>38532905You are all directed to land at Dinsmark National Airport. While Harling's plane lands to much publicity and fanfare, your flight meanwhile is squared away at a quiet hangar away from all the action. It was a bit disappointing, but then again, you could understanding there reasoning. It wouldn't be great for public image for some politicians if it seemed like you had a small private army at your disposal. "Man, what a gyp." Lara sighs as she climbs out of the cockpit. "I was hoping with all we did, we'd get some appreciation.""Appreciation is not always anything." Your Uncle says as he seems to literally rise from the shadows. He then turns to look at you. "Karla, my girl, we have quite a lot to keep track on!>And that's it for tonight! As always ,next thread is next week. Also, don't forget the exciting conclusion to Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday, and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>38532915thanks for the thread Merc
>>38532915HAHAHA IT'S THE BEST UNCLE
>>38532915Good to know the family's keeping in touch.See you tomorrow, merc!
>>38532915>"Appreciation is not always anything." Your Uncle says as he seems to literally rise from the shadows. He then turns to look at you. "Karla, my girl, we have quite a lot to keep track on!"Oh lord here it comes.Nice run Merc, see you on Sunday
>>38532915Thanks for the run Merc.>Dat picSo, Transporter side quest soon?
>>38532915>MORGAN ACE Isn't that technically a shootdown?
>>38532915Thanks for running!
>>38532915Thanks for the thread boss.
>>38532915See ya next time, Merc!
>>38532851>>38532852I think it's more a case of Emmeria not having as much money, so they phased out older airframes sooner than Osea, plus their military was smaller, so fleet changes were able to propagate faster, especially if they were buying Osean surplus airframes after the circumpacific war. And AC6 is 'newer' so it's possible the F-4 been retired by more nations by that point, which would explain why PMCs are operating them post AC6- there's Phantoms in boneyards all over, and they're dirt cheap and capable of lifting a shitpile of boom. 'course, this is all just speculation and what-ifs as a break from other crap, so take it with a grain of salt.
>>38532935We're going 50/50 with Lara, remember?>>38532915Thanks for running, Merc.
>>38532915Thanks for the run boss!Also Best uncle coming through.
>>38532950Oh dammit, I forgot. Thanks for the reminder....does that mean that MORGAN is completely trashed?
>CyberIdols is coming to an endW-we're getting heists quest after this, right?
>>38532915So...we get the Morgan pilot?We need to Meido her.
>>38532946Sounds resonable though.
>>38532963More like we can't recover it, not prepared in any way and so not enough time before the enemy gets there to fight us off or just blow it up.
>>38532946That's probably the best explanation we've got>But why're the Stovies still flying Phantoms?Because <<Their economy's been in shambles for decades!>>
>Karla's Uncle approaches Karla for a job>Karla, this guy here says he knows where you dad is.>Suede black BMW drives in>door opens>FRANK MARTIN comes out>I heard you need a transporter.
>>38532915>conclusion to Cyberpunk IdolsMaybe we can finally find out if Niko's really a ninja...
>>38532946Makes sense I guess.And go to sleep already.
>>38532981What a shame.(Cries internally)I guess we're too early for something like that, right? What was I thinking.Merc! Fancy planes when?>Captcha:scurbaw.
>>38532985Sure. Estovakia probably has an economy that vaguely resembles a cross between the worst of early 90s, post-soviet eastern Europe and North Korea- they've probably got an absolute shitton of outmoded airframes in service well past their rated lifespan, with their modern aircraft concentrated in a handful of 'elite' units. Of course, post-war, it's hard to say how much of that fleet they'd have left, let alone how much they could still operate.
>>38533013I'm really enjoying that series so far.
>>38533009Given they probably threw a good chunk of their GDP into that Great White Whale of an Aigaion, and the losses they took in AC6, it's unlikely they have more than a few dozen aircraft of various makes and models
>>38530316Technically nothing indicates that Stark Jegan Guy was even an ace other than him managing to successfully get a beam saber lock with a named character in a one-off mobile suit. He really was just some grunt. It's what makes him so badass.
>>38533027i forgot to add This:>sauce?
>>38533010Blame Merc, he posted Inspector Tarconi as Karla's Uncle.Now my headcanon is that Frank Martin is a Belkan transporter.>>38533020Yuri, yuri everywhere
>>38533035... Point.>>38533036Girls und panzer: Ribbon no Musha
>>38533040>Yuri, yuri everywhereA bit too much, IMO.
>>38533024Yeah, absolutely. Odds are, their lost war means whatever they've got left in active service is probably no more than a handful of squadrons, and they're probably selling surplus to try and get some kind of hard currency. As to what quality the merchandise is... well, who knows.
>>38533060Anon, Ribbon no Musha is NEVER ENOUGH YURI
>>38533049>Girls Und Panzer: Enhanced Yuri edition

>>38533091your writings will suck if you don't get sleep
>>38533088She wasn't a horse per se, she was just giving a piggy back ride as a horse in a dream sequence. And she was naked.
>>38533091Fatigue helps writing none. If you're afraid of losing ideas then open up notepad or another Word doc and jot the main points downtlo before hitting the hay.
>>38533096That's what editors are for! hahahaha. man, he's gonna hate me.
>>38533112>downtloOh the irony
Speaking of ADFXs, if we are getting hi tech superplanes later on, how ARE we getting it? Like where would it come from?Also ATLAS stealth A-10 when?
>>38533141haha! I win. don't worry, you're still the best feelz/badend guy we've got. I'll rack out in a couple hours, just want to get some more stuff down for today's run, since it involves people we don't see too often.
>>38533148Probably Quint will 'acquire' the superplanes later in the game.AS for stealth a-10's, we'll just have to wait from ATLAS.
>>38532915>mission accomplished by abandoning our wing girlFun run, Merc!>>38533155oh man, oh boy, oh man
>>38533155>don't worry, you're still the best feelz/badend guy we've got.Wow... that's...Thanks.Of course you know this means more depressing 89 fanfiction now
>>38533148Either wait until very late phase on the quest, purchase the best plane on shop first,or Side Quest.

>>38533235You'd have to write that one soon. as in "within the next week or two" soon.
>>38533235Tempting but nah, I don't like touching the main cast. I'm never certain I'll do any of them justice which is why all my stuff's centred around oridgunuhlkarricturrsdonutsteele
>>38533261>>38533273>yfw Rufus dies in a surprise attack
>>38533285I was bored and just randomly thought that Russian!Rufus was a beardog that one of those Not!Russian lolis had before she was kidnapped for Russian piloting program. Bestdog died trying to prevent said kidnapping. When she see Rufus, she gets mad flashbacks and breakdowns over her dead old dog.
>>38533329>Russian witch goes yandere over Rufus... ZIPPPOOOO
>>38533329Nah. Silke/Stasya's family only had the cat, who got out and was adopted pretty quickly (He spent one night on the street, then got taken in by a young girl. Being a cat, he accepted this as the way the world works.) Karla/Lilya's family had some hunting dogs, but they weren't kept on that property, and after the murders, they were mostly taken in by family friends.
>>38533368I wait for the day when Rufus and daughterus meet.
>>38533383>OH GOD THERE'S SLOBBER /EVERYWHERE!/

Brought to you by ROK's ADD and KAI
>>38532852And fans were disappointed.The F-5 or F-4 as your starter plane is a tradition of sorts, so breaking away from it was a disappointment.
>>38534944Something about the F-4 makes it likeable, but I don't know why
