Twitter: twitter.com/planefagArchives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kant-O-Celle%20QuestYou steeple your fingers and stare over them at the oh-so-innocent face of the alleged Marine Corporal sitting in front of you. His chevrons say he's a corporal, at least, but you know damn well that a tiger never, ever changes their stripes. Nor do Lances. “You want something to do around here,” you repeat to him.“YES,” he says emphatically, gesticulating with his-”“Hate, is that a spork?”“Mmm,” he confirms as he shovels more food into his mouth. You peer at it.“A... metal spork?” “Hrm?” he queries with a half-shrug as he continues to inhale his plate.“Did you... *bring* that? Your own metal spork?”“Hrmrmr?” he says defensively as he chews, rolling his shoulders in a so-what? motion. “... right, uh, anyway,” you say, forcibly rerailing the conversation. “Are you looking for something to do which *doesn't* involve that AR lower that went missing from the armory?” To his credit, Corporal Hate doesn't flinch a millimeter – not that you were expecting him to. “What went where now?” “The AR lower that went missing from the armory,” you repeat. Hate picks up his glass and gives you the kind of shifty look only Marines can manage over the rim as he takes a long drought. “Yeaaaah,” he says slowly as he sets it down. “See, maybe something went missing from the armory. And maybe it didn't. And maybe it did, but nobody knows about it and you're just depth-charging blind, playing the odds.” He sloooowly takes another sporkful of... everything and ladles it into his mouth, chewing with satisfaction.
>>39074082Hate's right, of course – you're shooting blind, but judging from his reply, you hit the mark. Lance Corporals (and their equivalents) are the soothsayers of any base; the wizened sages who consult tea leaves, SMS messages, facebook rumors, the way birds sit on a wire and the way PFCs chitter and jitter when they see chevrons walk through a door. From these auguries they usually know what's coming down the pipe before the damned commissioned officers do. Hate already knows there's an e-mail in circulation; he just doesn't know if YOU know yet. But that's okay, because you're angling at a slightly different point. “Lets just call it... Shrodinger's Marine,” you say easily, bracketing air between your hands to determine the box you're about to put him in. “We leave him in a box, which happens to contain an 'orphan' lower.”A silence stretches between you both, and Hate finally raises an eyebrow. “That's it,” you reply. “There's nothing in that box but the lower.”“Then that's not Shrodinger-ish at all,” Hate replies instantly, “because there's only one... oh.” “Yeah,” you reply. “Well,” he replies. “Yeah. Pretty... pretty much that.” You nod thoughtfully, thinking.>Well, tag along with me today, and see if I can't find you something.>I need you to give Willie some remedial lessons in breaking things. She's got that part down, but I'd like the wrath to be a little more directed, you know?

LOOKS LIKE WEE WILLIE FUCKUP WINS, WOOP WOOP
>>39074353Darjeeling from Girls Und Panzer.
>>39074353Darjeeling from Girls und Panzer, most probably.Gap an elf really needs to get on GuP when he finishes one of the other quests, even though Girls und Panzer animu was pretty good by itself.
>>39074393Well Deculture is doing promo art for Girls und Titans. (GuP +Titanfall)
>>39074366Everybody say your prayers.
>>39074366>WEE WILLIE FUCKUP WINSI hope her retribution is aimed at the broccoli cruisers for practice.
>>39074393>Gap an elf really needs to get on GuP when he finishes one of the other questsThere have been like 3 or 4 GuP Quests already. One of them is still running.
>>39074436Hey i just finished everything but the OVAs. s'pretty good.
>>39074393>even though Girls und Panzer animu was pretty good by itself.absolutely notalso the b word is BOATS
So who will we be breaking down today?
>>39074532Maybe we'll finally meet Sammie or something.
>>39074436What? You'd prefer Upotte!Dem skeleton stocks, man.
>not being the Nasu of questsNasu takes fucking forever to get new shit out too, it all fits.
>>39074516>the B word is BOATSoh. Shit, I was convinced it was "Bread" as some sort of elaborate Python-esque bit. Whoops.
>>39074601>World of WarplanesBest tab yet.
So who will be our eventual secretary ship?My vote is for Tatsuta.
>>39074638>not how to take a screenshotI don't see a tab called world of warplanes what are you talking about.
>>39074679That's what I told him too.
>>39074601Wait, there's a battleship thread on /k/ now?
>>39074690>>not how to take a screenshotFucking everyone does that one. It's old.
I'm just waiting for someone to notice the sadpanda tab.
>>39074784>not having a sadpanda tab yourself
>>39074739mreh i don't 4chan that much. so first time I seen it.
So who is best ship-waifu? My vote is for planefag
>>39074830Do you have that specific tab?I hope so.
Agh, I wasn't expecting this today!I've been compiling a list of things that will possibly appear in Shipslut quest, but it's nowhere near complete, I've still got several more goddamn navies to get through. Here's what I've got atm.Likely to appear/ships we'll needAnything that served in the IJNUSS Atlanta CL-51 (Anti aircraft ships, bitch!)USS Oakland CL-95USS Iowa BB-61 (Abyssal? Who knows, something fucky is going on.)USS Enterprise CV-6 (Abyssal? She never died a hero's death, and was denied the chance to become a museum ship, but after all that she did for her country, she was scrapped! I'd be mad as hell if I was The Grey Ghost.)USS Langley CV-1 (Aircraft carriers, bitch!)USS Lexington CV-2USS Ranger CV-4USS Yorktown CV-5USS Nevada BB-36 (Famous battleships, bitch!)USS North Carolina BB-55USS South Dakota BB-57USS Missouri BB-63 (The Jap butthurt would be too immense to pass up. Not to mention, she stood by and watched as Arizona rose again to leave and fight, would you deny her the chance to do the same?)USS Pennsylvania BB-38 (She was denied her chance to fight with her sister in WWII, would you deny her the chance to fight with her now?)Important shipsHMS Dreadnought 1906 (THE Dreadnought battleship.)USS New York BB-34 (You tellin' me you don't want to see these old ass tugboats come back to life?)USS Texas BB-35Modern Ships likely to appearUSS Gerald R. Ford CVN-78 (Should be finished by 2018, not due for full service till 2019, but hey, abyssals! The Gerald R. Ford-class is the new hotness.)USS Nimitz CVN-68 (It's the fucking Nimitz.)USS Winston S. Churchill DDG-81 (It's the Royal Navy ship, except it's actually American.)USS Kidd DDG-100 (Because Admiral Kidd. Imagine, Arizona being rescued by the ship bearing her Admiral's name.)Time to play shipslut quest while going through EVERY FUCKING NAVY THAT PARTICIPATED IN WWII.I'm wise to your bullshit, Planefag, I will predict your moves before you think of making them!
>>39074935>USS Texas BB-35The old Dreadnought? The US Navy sold it to the state of Texas.They still have it.
>>39074935>Mentioning the Gerald R. Ford Class>not mentioning the CVN-80 which will be named Enterprise.pls.
>>39074935>USS North Carolina BB-55>USS South Dakota BB-57>those ships>sunk
>>39075039>They still have it.First museum ship in US, too
>>39075069I think planefag is having ships that weren't sunk make shipgirls as well.I think.
>>39075069>>sunkLike that stopped any of the nip ships from showing up, or did you forget about Kongou?
>>39075117Literally EVERY Japanese ship in KC got sunk.
>>39075117What? She WAS sunk. USS Sealion got her.
>>39075052Man, CVN-80 isn't even going to be started until 2018.
>>39075163isn't the setting 2024 or something?
>>39075145Yukikaze wants a word with you
>>39075145Uh, no.Hyuuga is just one of the top of my head that wasn't sunk, but rather scrapped.
>>39075207>>39075255Out of the entire KC roster, only a small handful survived the war and even those were eventually sunk/scrapped/nuked postwar.
“So how's Willie doing?” you ask. Hate shrugs as he continues to tuck in, already eying your plate dangerously. “Same ol. She's literally a fucking boot, you know?” “Hate,” you say patiently, “you're talking Marine again.”“Fukkin New Guy,” he clarifies. “Willie's case, she's a fuckup and she knows it, and that makes her so shaky she can't not unfuck, I mean, she can't fuckup the-” he pauses, holding up a finger to ask for a moment. “She can't not fuck up,” he says, “so she can't unfuck herself.” You nod – you're familiar with the problem. Moreso than you'd ever admit, in fact. “Y'think you could do anything about that?” He shrugs. “Ahguess. She's okay but she drives me up the fucking wall sometimes, you know?” You nod sagely, studying Hate closely. You can almost see his invisible antenna twitch as he realizes the wind has shifted. “Oh, Skipper, you're not gonna-”“We have to do *something,*” you insist. “Unless you wanna start cutting up a box worth of grid squares and spooling up some goddamn shore line to go with that paint.” Hate quirks his mouth, conceding the point – pranks like that have steeply diminishing returns, and that sounds dangerously like work. “So we either need to bolster Willie's confidence in her performance somehow, or at least teach her how to hold her own against those damn torpedo cruisers,” you say, tapping your fork on the table in annoyance. “We've already got enough damn problems to deal with already, bringing American ships into Japan and expecting them to work together – and I can't fight their battles for them. She can play it prison-rules style or Elegant High-Class Bitch style, but either way, she's got to fight back."
>>39075307Hate murmurs inaudible agreement. He's sitting up straight now – this is business. “Well, I could teach her some shit, no lie...” He sighs. “Dunno about combat drills, though. The dipshit starts shaking the instant she enters the range – only good thing to say is, she hardly ever muzzle-sweeps. She's got a hard time focusing on surface targets when she transforms and rolls out or whatever. Keeps watching the sky.” He frowns. “Do we really need her combat-ready?”“Hate,” you tell him seriously, “there hasn't bee a war yet where the Admirals had half as many destroyers as they needed, much less wanted. And she's a Fletcher class – she's more modern and better-built than half those Japanese ships strutting around here. Yeah, we need her.” Hate sighs with resignation, and you see him summoning his full strength. You can almost see a sketchy aura around him as he readies one last gambit to avoid this future that he asked for. “I can give her some one-on-one or whatever,” Hate says slowly, “but... I was assigned to look after Sammy today.” A cold stone of dread sinks through your stomach. “... is this the true power of a Lance Corporal?” you say in meek awe, and Hate grins like the lazy motherfucker he is. “She's been getting awfully antsy about meeting you, too,” he says, twisting the knife. “She's bitching that all the big ships are getting the attention.” Which they are. And that's not her fault – it's yours. Because you really, really don't want to be in the room – or on the base – when the inevitable happens.
>>39075346“Oooooorrrrrrr,” Hate drawls, “you could start delegating authority, like you're supposed to.”“You-”“You need more than a pet Corporal, skipper,” he says dourly. “As fun as it is to have most of the responsibilities of a butterbar without the pay grade, there's more than two people can do.”“We've only got-”“And how long is that gonna last?” he says. “Even if the CNO doesn't order us to start summonings... they're just showing up. The Corgis, for example.”You blanch. “How many, now?” “That'd require me rounding them up long enough to count,” he says, his eyes lidded with resigned loathing. “Sooner or later, skipper.”You sigh. “Well, what do you have in mind?”“Put Harder in charge of teaching Willie-”“Areyououtofyourfuckingmind!?” you exclaim. “That's almost as bad as putting her with Sammy!”Hate's eyes widen... and then he strokes his chin thoughtfully.“You can't be serious.”“Naah. Naah. Think about it.”
… you think about it. Sammy, well escorting a destroyer is LITERALLY her job. They'd make a decent ASW team; not even Willie can fuck up depth charging too much, and she's too flighty to be an easy target for torpedoes. She seems to jump if the crickets sing too loud, even. And with Sammy at her side... yeah. She might not earn respect, but she'll stop taking shit really, really quick.Harder is... marginally more sane. More importantly, he knows things about destroyers no destroyer can know – he might be able to teach Willie from a unique perspective, which might give her more confidence. He's newly manifested, though – there's lots of unknowns in there. He might teach her something... weird. “Just remember, Skip,” Hate says, watching you think. “I dunno who's gonna teach her High Class Subtle Bitchery. I'm a smoke-grenade-in-the-sealed-shitter kind of guy, you know?” You give Hate a lazy smirk. “I've got that covered.” You *did* graduate from Annapolis, after all. >Have Hate teach Willie MEAN MARINE TRICKS>Teach Willie SUBTLE TROLL TRICKS yourself>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGER>Pair Willie up with Sammy.
>>39075255She was sunk. She was sunk in port in shallow water, but she was sunk none the less.
>>39075392>Teach Willie SUBTLE TROLL TRICKS yourselfOh, so many wonderful choices. But I'll go with this one.
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGER
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGERI NEED to see this.
>>39075392>>Have Hate teach Willie MEAN MARINE TRICKSWee need to meet Sammie and bring her up to speed on Willie's issues before we can pair them up and start teaching Willie to be subtle.

>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Sammy.
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGERAwwwwwwww YISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS best combination. Harder will endow Willie with DANGEROUS SUBMARINE KNOWLEDGE and Willie will force Harder to get his head out of his ass, lest he deal with Willie breaking into tears every five minutes.Yes. This is best.
>>39075392>>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGER>>Pair Willie up with Sammy.Put all 3 of them together. Pity any snippy jap that gets in any of their face afterwards.
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGERI've got a bad feeling about this, but what the hell
>>39075392>>Pair Willie up with Sammy.Maybe Sammy can counter Willie's inherent fuckup tendencies for a bit. Plus it's her fucking job.
>>39075392>>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGER
Someone remind me what ship Sammy was?
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Sammy AND HarderEagle squadron here we go.
>>39075392>Pair Willie up with Sammy.It is literally her goddamn job....We still need to go meet with her tho.
>>39074830>having a sadpanda tab>not having a sadpanda window
>>39075149Speaking of the Sealion, while doing a Wikipedia search on her, I found out that the first USS Sealion was featured in a historical manga. She prevents Operation Sea Lion because she gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.El Alamein no Shinden. Shit's amazingly well drawn.
>>39075392>>Pair Willie up with Harder BETTER FASTER STRONGERI still think Harder is a trol.
>>39075592It's surprisingly well researched. This is actually the correct impact angle you'd need to get the Mark 14's contact detonator to actually work.
>>39075392>[x] Pair Willie up with SammyHarder needs to teach Naka proper torpedo maintenance and stowage so they don't detonate like last time.

Also, why don't we want to meet Sammy exactly? She should be a comparatively sane one from what I read.
>>39075392I'm blanking on which one Sammy is. iirc Harder is the insane sub who jumped fubuki.
>>39075741Nope. If you managed to get an oblique angle hit, the detonator would detonate.The problem was that a fucking contact detonator should be able to detonate if it hits straight on. You shouldn't HAVE to do an oblique angle attack.
>>39075392>>Have Hate teach Willie MEAN MARINE TRICKSMarine Corp Best Corp oorah and all that moto bullshit
>>39075767I'm going to get some popcorn. brb.
>>39075798I still say Harder should end up as an unintentional, confused, and frustrated Harem Protagonist with all the Jap Destroyers he's faced in the past.
>>39075798You are correct. He then proceeded to be in the right place at the wrong/right time, such that Naka face-planted into his crotch.
>>39075866>unintentional, confused, and frustrated Harem ProtagonistYou aren't alone, anon.

>>39075890>dat SacchinIsn't it sad?
>>39075798Samuel B Williams. Destroyer Escort. Landed a metric fuckton of shots during the battle off Samar. She and a destroyer managed to force a heavy cruiser (one of the Chikumas iirc) to retire from the battle.She didn't even have radar assisted guns like the other DDs in Taffy-3.
>>39075890He freaks out every time one of the destroyers approach him while smiling. He thinks the they're all out for revenge.
>>39075923Not at all.
>>39075559Samuel B. Roberts. Look her up.
And why all the hate on poor Willie? She doesn't deserve it as much as you all think!
>>39076013>Launched: 8 December 1984Holy shit! Is she the most modern ship girl here?
>>39076050wrong one. sammy is DE-413
>>39076050Wrong one. The modern one is named for the original WWII ship.
>>39076050Look up Taffy 3's Samuel B. Should get you on the correct warship.
>>39076015She (accidentally) launched a torpedo at the ship the President was on.
>>39075392Put all three (Willie, Sammy, Harder) together. They'll teach each other things.
>>39076072>>39076085>>39076089Oh! That's more like it. Thanks for the clarification anons.

>>39076118They are both you uncultured swine!
Gentlemen, we arrive!
>>39076120>>39076090So what you guys are saying is that she's the Wrenloft of shipsluts?
“Sammy,” you say after several seconds of contemplation. A slow, wicked smile spreads across your soul as you contemplate the hidden genius of Hate. Yes. Sammy. If there's anything that can give Willie confidence in her strength, it's the ant that moved the rubber tree plant to a deserted back lot and then fucking burned it alive while calling its entire grove out as pussies. Sammy is also... problematic to pair with an uncertain girl like Willie. Sammy has certain expectations of destroyers; expectations Willie isn't going to match. But if Willie can hang onto the tail of that comet for just a little while, it'll do her a world of good.And hell, maybe they'll even hit it off. You snort at that, and shake your head. No chance in hell. You turn your attention back to Hate, who's waiting with an innocent look. “Go ahead,” you tell him.“Go ahead what?”“Go ahead and do whatever you're being smug about.”“... smug!?” he says with entirely too much surprise. “But sir, I was just thinking about what other delegations of duty we might make to assist you. You might want to assign a secretary ship.” You sink into your chair as that entire impossible phrase soaks into your poor, benighted soul. “A what.”
>>39076120Sounds like an average marine to me.
>>39076145So, when are you going to use an image of a REALY harbor ship? Like say, a Mulberry from the conveniently relevant time period? Just curious.
>>39076162Wrenloft rolls great when it counts at the last minute. Willie has one thing going for her in that all of her crew survived to the end of the war.
>>39076182The entire crew was arrested after being kicked out of the convoy. By marines.
>>39076170“Secretary ship,” Hate says. “Goto's got one. 'Parrenlty they're so short on staff with security clearance for this crazy shit – that's also WILLING to work with 'em – that he had to assign a shipgirl-spirit-thangmobobber to handle some of the paperwork. I could interview candidates for you.”*That* snaps your attention back to reality. “Wait, just what-”“Oooooh, yeeeaaaaaaaaaah,” Hate croons under his breath, leaning far to one side, his eyes tracking someone in the room behind you. “Here comes a candidate now~” He pops out of his seat, slaps his cover on and double-checks it for a jaunty cock that shades his eyes just-so, and rollllllllls away from your table – it cannot be said that he was walking, for the speed of his footsteps seem to hold no bearing on his motive speed; like he's skating across the floor. In the distance you see Tatsuta and Tenryuu just approaching the food line as Hate closes in.Smooth son of a bitch. Once upon a time – no, once upon a time you were a pencil-pushing, rank-climbing dildo, and now that it's lost the charm, you're too old to want that life, and not young enough to attract a wife. There's a french phrase for it, but you prefer the straight translation - “life is shit.” With a sigh, you pull your cell phone out of your pocket and consult the day's calendar, already updated by The Alleged Secretary... maybe Goto's, if what Hate said wasn't shiggidy shaboody gonna git that booty excuses. According to it, Sammy would be available very soon, Willie already is, and nothing's scheduled for an hour or so – discretionary time to let lunch settle, or something. Time to get going. >Track down Willie, bring her along and introduce her to Sammy before evening exercises begin. >Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods. >Do that thing you intended to follow up on earlier, but totally forgot about [Write-in.]
>>39076206>Track down Willie, bring her along and introduce her to Sammy before evening exercises begin.
>>39076199... you actually know what the fuck a Mulberry was?
>>39076182Sounds like a fucking boot fuck to me

>>39076206>>Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.Let's go talk to her, then appoint her as secretary. Carriers make good secretaries
>>39076206>Track down Willie, bring her along and introduce her to Sammy before evening exercises begin. >Bring Hornet along for a walk and talk – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.How could Sammy and Willie not have met at all yet?
>>39076206>Track down Willie, bring her along and introduce her to Sammy before evening exercises begin. We don't get her in place first, we're gonna spend all day trying to find her, or only a few minutes finding a flaming wreck, given how these threads are going. Need to get her in semi-capable hands ASAP.
>>39076206>>Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.Some fucking Carrier love here.
>Not appointing Arizona as secretaryShit taste.
>>39076206>>Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.Check on the Hornet. A brooding Yorktown-class carrier is a carrier needing to unwind before it wipes out a significant portion of the Japanese navy.>>39076240Yes, I almost went for a degree in history, specializing in World War Two/Naval History before deciding an Engineer gets paid better. Thus, I have an Engineering degree and job, but still read libraries' worth of naval history. And the World Wars too.
>>39076206>[x] Track down Willie, bring her along and introduce her to Sammy before evening exercises begin.>Secretary: Tatsuta. She had her head on straight and seemed like a no-nonsense type.Just thoughts for the future.
>>39076206>Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.Hate suggested foisting Willie off he can make his own damn introductions between them

I want to be a writer, but "Journalist" sounds more like an actual job than, oh, literally any other degree my University offered. Too bad they didn't offer Technical Writing. That's what I'm hoping for - to become that mysterious sage which enters the cubicle farm to commune with the Engineers, and emerges with the Holy Manual scribed upon two stone tablets.
>>39076206>Visit Hornet first – we haven't seen her lately and you're worried about how much she broods.>>39076013Thanks for the clarification!
>>39076170>>39076206>Secretary shipSoooooo, what if we appoint Willie? Think she can wreck paperwork too?
>>39076286No, I got it. I was just being curious. Honestly though, Mulberries were one of THE most important ship classes because there would have been no follow-up to D-Day without them and the...hundred or so ships sunk purposely to create the shelters against currents and storms.
>>39076363You know who needs more love? Cruisers. Where's my Takao?!
>>39076413>You know who needs more love? Cruisers. Where's my Takao?!funny you should mention that
>>39076384>studying journalismB-but you can actually write!Sort of, anyway.
>>39076384God knows we Engineers need the help. We're generally quite terrible at communicating, even at this research plant I work at where there's less than thirty people.
>>39076402Maybe Hornet could be our secretary.
>>39076434Fiction and Journalism are effectively the same skill set!>>39076443Yep! My father's an engineer, so I've had a lifetime of experience translating from Engineer to English.
>>39076384>>39076325Being a specialist in Ancient History, I can sympathize with your reasons.History is a thankless job. But someone has to do it.>>39076410Simply because if I showed the Corn Cobs used as foundations for the Mulberries, no one would get it.Bentus is rather more recognizable. And the Bentusi are my trademark in Deme/Planefag's threads.
Calling it for a quick checkup on Hornet before Sammy and Co! WRITAN
>>39076432we gonna see some 'fuel tanks' soon? Or in true aninu fashion run face first into them?
>>39076443You think YOU need help communicating? I'm a software engineer. Getting my coworkers to properly comment our code is like pulling teeth. They're not just bad at communicating, they're actively opposed to it.
>>39076497half of those look like dudes.

>>39076402I would be amused if tatsuta becomes the secretary ship.It also means we'll have a front row seat to all the hate & tatsuta shenaningans.
>>39076384>Holy ManualI stll don't know who those are for. No engineer actually reads them, and the end users tend to ignore them in favor of calling an engineer
>>39076506>MFW most technical writing opportunities are in software these days for this exact reason
>>39076505Harder is taking care of that for us.And maybe Hate.
>>39076558>I stll don't know who those are for. No engineer actually reads them, and the end users tend to ignore them in favor of calling an engineerYou just described a bible.
>>39076461My brother and I went the opposite direction. Lawyer dad and government mom(granted, old-school electrician's grandpa), so both of them were liberal arts grads. Then my brother and I went and became Engineers. Families are fun.>>39076501I ALSO study classical societies, specializing in Roman/Mediterranean region partially due to four years of Latin (one of AP credit) plus two college semesters.Latin, History, Engineering, and Science are my big interests really.>>39076506Coders don't like being told they're wrong. That much I understand.>>39076539Based planefag. Also, Carthago delenda est!

>>39076585I hope to god we never see a Re.She's a fucking nightmare.
>>39076562And here I am, working in real estate for years and we have to handle legal writing all the time.
>>39076539YOU FUCKERS VOTED FOR ALCIBIADES IN THE FIRST PLACE. AND NOW WE HAVE SPARTANS UP TO OUR EARS! FUCK. More seriously, I'm working on Late Antiquity right now. I wish I had picked something like the Peloponnesian War. Instead I'm writing about Christianity absorbing pagan rituals.>>39076584I respect you deeply. Carthago Delenda Est!
>>39076558Usually because they're out of date or otherwise inaccurate by the time higher-ups finally get around to issuing them out. Or they're for completely different systems. Or they never get distributed at and you have to dig through any and everything to get the relevant information including pestering the parent-companies everyday, three times a day via e-mail until they break down and give you the information you should have had in the first place.I mad.
>>39076583Ohh, do you have bitter conclaves about each chapter to be included, eventually degrading into actual bloodshed?>>39076656... Once again, a Bible.Or a Canon. Depending.
>>39076608She is best battleship Abyssal!
I'm getting a smidge confused. Are "Mulberry ships" and "Mulberry-class ships" just referring to the various ships used to construct the Mulberry harbors?
>>39076608But what happens when we run into hoppu.Because i tell you now, our first reaction will be to bring her home.
>>39076683she's certainly one of the toughest. I'm a Harbor Hime fan *shrug*
>>39076656At least YOU'RE working on systems with documentation. I have to fucking disassemble code on a weekly basis because of bullshit like everyone using this one function, nobody having the uncompiled source for that function, and the person who wrote the function having left years ago, leaving buggy code behind.
>>39076694Pretty much. Metonymy for the Mulberry Harbours really.I was calling them such to check for ignorance.
>>39076721Gotta love legacy black boxes.
>>39076718NIGGA I SAID BATTLESHIP NOT BASE
>>39076767I take much solace in the fact that I'm important enough to get away with verbally assaulting anybody who dares so much as insinuate we relax our internal commenting standards.
>>39076721at least you'rr not just building a wrapper around it. or a wrapper around another guy's wrapper. and so on and so forth until nobody knows the purpose of half the functions and what it was supposed to originally do
>>39076767Oh, that's not only in coding. I can tell you, History has it's fair share of it. But unlike you guys, we can't actually check if our disassembly gives the right results.>>39076853You will be beloved by Historians to come.Seriously, there are many anonymous scribes who are outright honoured amongst Historians for their precise and detailed comments.We may never know their names, but we know they left us knowledge we'd have lost otherwise.
>>39076870That's why you have Industrial Engineers who EVENTUALLY streamline things. Just not always finished before project end-life occurs.>>39076721Fair enough, although I DID have to create some of the documentation myself.
For the five you you who probably have not seen this. The ST-1 a new vehicle for a limited game mode for warthunder involving the ST-1 soviet walking battle tank and its german and american counterparts.
>>39076977Nope, not redownloading that shit. Fuck you, Gaijew.
>>39076977Meh. Tried it out. Had more fun bombing them in my A-20G. Arcade mode is still crap.They finally implemented the improved RB and Sim modes though.

>>39077044A shame she got irradiated.
>>39077147>A shame she got irradiatedIt only made her hotter.I have no regrets.
>>39077044I'd rather spend some time in hotel.
>>39077172Come to think of it, I'm wondering when Yamato will show up.
>>39077172hotel a shit
>>39077147Not sure how's thats relevant...>>39077172please no bully.
>>39077172Ho te ru
>>39077208At the third quartile point of the entire quest, just like in the actual war so far as combat cared.>>39077222Classy!
>>39077217you a shit
>>39077013nigger did you know that they put arcade maps in RB?
>>39077263Hotel Yamato is the comfiest!
>>39076977How the fuck do you control it? All cannons are tied to LMB by default and no amount of rebinding was able to change that.
>>39077263planefag, when next reply?
>>39077313It has a Star Wars feel to it.
>>39077266No. Goddamnit Gaijew. I did notice they finally got rid of enemy markers though.
While scrolling through today's schedule, you see that the CVs have scheduled practice at their own dedicated range. Yokosuka has one of those rarest and valuable of training facilities; a torpedo range tucked away into its own corner of the harbor. In this seabee crews have added wooden pilings decorated with large targets; almost looking like a long-range rifleman's shooting range at which the CV's unleash their odd “flights” of aircraft. You tap your phone against your leg thoughtfully, and decide to pay them a visit. You'd like to see how they all stack up skill-wise, and you haven't seen Hornet since you arrived on-base. You worry about how much she broods; it doesn't do to ignore any of your ships for too long. You retrieve your (damned) cane, deposit your half-finished lunch and Hate's emptied plate in the proper receptacles and you're just limping towards the door when you spot a girl in an unusually dark outfit heading for the door – a destroyer, based on her height. Her head's on a swivel, and she's got a brown paper bag in her hands, the rolled top twisting in a nervous grip. She slides up to the door, glances around, and slips out silently.
>>39077266Apparently they took them back out after the backlash. You'd have thought they would have learned.
>>39077263I get this feeling I should get a twitter account just to supply you with non-witty historical/Engineering/marchingband/convention/college stories I've been through.
>>39077536>it doesn't do to ignore any of your ships for too longSammy, you hypocrite
>>39077536She looks a little like the glimpsed streak of terrified ship you saw bolt out of that tree last night – apparently the Corgis still have her scent. You fumble for your phone and jot down a note before striding out into the bright noon sunlight. The training range can be heard further than seen; the high-pitched buzz of tiny engines ripping through the air like swarms of pissed-off hornets. Exactly like pissed off hornets; that's really what they *are.* There's no rangemaster present for some reason; just three girls bending their bows at the distant targets. Hornet is the furthest from your vantage point behind the wooden divider that forms the makeshift archery shack put up for the CV's use. It was knocked together from whatever was on hand; and there's a large knothole near one corner that allows you a decent view.Hornet is furthest from your vantage point; her dark braids contrasting with Akagi's long, flowing locks. Kaga's nearest, her eyes sharp and focused, studying the results of the last run.
>>39077536Well well, who's this?
>>39077609At last, they reach for their practice arrows as one, nock, and release. The Japanese carriers move swiftly, almost fluidly – nocking the arrow with the bow above their heads, drawing and releasing in one motion as they come down. The arrows whistle away into the snarling buzz of practice planes as they repeated the smooth, well-rehearsed motion; moving with the grace of well-oiled machines honed to a razor's edge. As their flights of miniature planes streak away towards the distant targets and mock-up ships painted on white boards, Hornet's aircraft follow – a straggling stream. As you watch she whips another arrow from her quiver. Unlike the Japanese CVs, she's holding her bow in front, turned at almost a 45 degree angle to one side. She nocks up, sighting down the shaft carefully before releasing. Her archery style is less formalized and rehearsed, and it shows in the poor cohesion of her launched strike. The CVs stand silently as they watch their planes attacking. Kaga and Akagi's strikes hit their assigned targets perfectly, but Hornets trickle in, each of them attacking whatever the hell they see first. Kaga audibly sighs as she watches some of Hornets torpedo bombers bore straight in at a simulated ship – a small model anchored to the bottom – without bothering to split into two groups, or catch it at 45 degree angles. She glances at Akagi, who to her credit does not glance back. Hornet stands stock-still, staring out at the targets. She's regal and quiet, but she's no Arizona – she can't hide her misery at the sorry display. >Go out>Keep watching
Ashigara secretary when?
>>39077649>>Go out>>Keep watchingPlanefag, does go out mean enter the range or leave the place completely?
>>39077612Shigure. The Poi's sister ship.
>>39077693Enter the range and head off this incipient shitstorm right away - or lurk behind the divider and see if Kaga's gonna start shit and/or put her foot in her mouth.
>>39077649>Hornet TBs being worth shitAhahaha.I say we keep watching and wait for shenanigans.
>>39077649>>Keep watchingWatch what happens, be ready to move to intercept if Hornet flees in tears.
>>39076182So that is where that comes from.
>>39077649>Go outOh hot damn, I'm late!
>>39077751I have that exact same picture saved as "GOTO.jpg"
>>39077649>Keep watchingBest not to interrupt in the middle of a range practice
>>39077649>Keep watchingOnly intervene if Kaga decides to insult her instead of giving advice.
>>39077649>>Keep watchingThey need to learn to work together.
>>39076977Actually, this image is pretty much what running into a KV-2 in arcade mode is like.
>>39077649>[x] Keep watching.Ganbatte, Hornet!
>>39077649>Keep watchingIt does match what happened historically: Hornet was sunk before the US really mastered massed carrier operations (as opposed to the single-carrier operations envisioned by prewar doctrine). All Hornet really needs is the practice she never got before she was sent to the bottom.And if Kaga or Akagi starts shit instead of offering to help? You can always point out that the first Japanese airstrike against the US carriers was elegant, graceful, coordinated, and 3/4 destroyed when the haphazard, piecemeal American air strike arrived.
>>39077854Well that's only if it's looking at you. It's laughably easy to kill if you arn't within its field of view.
>>39077649>Keep watchingLet's see if the girls are getting together well on their own.
>>39077649>Keep watchingInformation is life.
>>39077860This man knows how it went down!
>>39077672but heavy cruisers are valuable.Ideally we should be using outmoded CLs as secretaries.
>>39077649>>Go out>>39077860Actually, you're forgetting the Battle of Coral Sea. They needed a night attack (which resulted in a few trying to land on the American carriers) AND a day strike before they got to the Lexington. Also, Swede Vejtasa was a boss.That besides, neither strike on Yorktown actually killed her outright despite the reports of Japanese scout planes. Yorktown-class stronk.
I wonder what Shigure was carrying.
>>39077982She might be feeding a catcat is abyssal
>>39077982oh god cannot unsee why this?
>>39077982Spoilers: Her lunch. Nobody wants to eat with her.
>>39078003Might be a dog.

>>39078042Because you'll have to find out in character wwwww
>>39077949But think of how happy she will be. Ashigara would love to be your secretary.
>>39077972Probably should have clarified "first airstrike at the Battle of Midway". You know, the one that got 3/4 destroyed on the carrier decks of the Japanese fleet.
>>39078096>implying they even had a strike spottedIt's that bad, yeah.
>>39078081Hey angelfap, Abraham Crijnssen. aka the Dutch Ninja Ship, when?
>>39078096Yeah, probably. Sorry for being overly-critical I guess. It's just...Engineers. We have an obsession with being technically correct.
>>39078085Ain't seen her around before. Might have to keep a fuckin eye out.
>>39078085She's not a bad choice, but there's also better ones.
>>39078208hate pls. you're playing with fucking fire with these two.
>>39078220Let him find out on his own
>>39078208She's a real wolf
>>39078220>Ashigara for secretary>Not wanting Cathedral Terra as a secretaryAnon pls
>>39078208>>39078220That is why Settle should go for her. To draw out her full power.
>>39078208>Might have to keep a fuckin eye outDoes this mean you've given up on Tatsuto?
>>39078208Calling it now, Hate is an amnesiac ship-boy.
>>39078159>dutch ninja shipIt was just a minesweeper.
>>39078065Since our Admiral is kind of old as fuck, we need someone who acts mature too.Go get the Houshou, Admiral!
>>39078208She hasn't ever gotten laid, you might wanna fix that.
>>39078254That's contestable as Souryuu wasn't around half the time.
>>39078065We should really get Hornet to go talk to Houshou. She could stand to talk to the mumboat,
>>39078262Yes, but managing to get to Straya BY SNEAKING AND ACTING LIKE A FUCKING ISLAND gets brownie points from me.
>>39078268>Not wanting AMERICA for AMERICAN shipsfilthy imperial
>>39078268Seconding Houshou.MILF-carrier is best carrier.
>>39078208Movin' up from light cruisers to real ones, son?Don't let the others find out.
>>39078260Nope. Fuckin, I'm all flesh and blood, all the fuckin time. >>39078257Fuckin, no. Look, just cos I fuckin ordered don't mean I can't look at the fuckin menu all I want. What fuckin happens if my shit ain't fuckin good and I gotta order the fuck again?
>>39078300She's got some nice tats too.
>>39078294It is useless as an anti-ship warship. Effective as a run that might have been, it'd be useless against the Abyssals. What's it going to do? Hide at them?
>>39078268>>39078300Guys pls. Settle would work better with USS LAWRENCE
>>39078333Well, if the Abyssals start mining areas...
>>39078325Or if they fuck up your order, right?
>>39078333>Not wanting ninja ship that can go SNAKE EATER mode>Not having faith in stealthy naval mines>Is this seadog serious.gif
>>39078353I think fucking his order is the point of the exercise.
>>39078371I like to imagine it's true.
>>39078368MineSWEEPER. Not mineLAYER.
>>39078333Useless in combat.Stealthy as fuck.Good utility.Sounds like a secretary ship to me.
Wasn't Hornet involved in the action that ended up forcing Akagi and Kaga to sink/scuttle? At Midway?
>>39078413Well then, my bad on that.I'll go with >>39078423 then!
>>39078333Same thing Akashi or Akitsu Maru or whatever the hell her name is. A highly specific thing that only they can do.
I think shipgirl with a bit of a youthful outlook would be better
>>39078440Yeah. But she got sunk during all the plane chucking.
>>39078440One of Hornet's squadrons (VT-8) was indeed involved in that action.The rest fucked up their heading and missed the entire thing.
>>39078449Zuikaku a best carrier.
>>39078353Fuckin, yeah, or that.
>>39078449No, what we need is someone who is willing to crack down on bitchiness on both sides.Anyone fit the bill?
>>39078491that's rather subjective in many ways, hence why I went with "better" instead of best.
>>39078475>The rest fucked up their heading and missed the entire thing.I bet it was those fucking compass fairies again.
>>39078491I prefer Taihou.
>>39078536Not really, it'd require a ship that's respected on both sides.... so far there hasn't been such a thing.
>>39078543IIRC, miscommunication or miscalculations on the part of the staff caused the whole CAN'T SEE SHIT CAP'N debacle with the other wings.
>>39078570That'd assume that she woudln't just add to the bitchiness.
>>39078564>amored carrier>belt armor
>>39078564poor wo>>39078572big E.
>>39078572>>39078536>>39078570Why not Dreadnought? I mean, she WAS the reason we got bigger and tougher battlewagons...
>>39078589Just Perfection saving the anime.
>>39078570Maybe?I don't know shit about Kancolles.
>>39078594I think Big E was more feared than respected...
>>39078572To be fair, it's just been the nips being bitches and the yanks being awkward as fuck.
You contemplate stepping out there immediately and heading off the trouble you can already see clouding Kaga's face, but an Admiral doesn't often get a chance to see his underlings interacting without his own shadow effecting things. So you stay put... and wait. Kaga sighs, lowering her bow and leaning it against the back of the shed before striding past Akagi to face Hornet. Your girl doesn't turn – she just keeps staring downrange, watching her planes straggling in. A few of them have been out too long; exhausting their meager practice load of fuel; they go splashing into the drink as the rest begin orbiting the shed. She extends her flight deck on one arm, and lets them bounce and jounce to rough landings. Kaga and Akagi have already retrieved theirs. Once the task is complete – and only then – does she say something. “Yes, Kaga?” she asks, still fixing her stare downrange. “You're not intending to sortie like that, are you?” Kaga asks bluntly.
pls consider tenryuu for role of secretaryi need this or i will die
>want to write filthy tatsuta/hate smut>knowledge of the ijn and tenryuu class is woefully inadequateFug
>>39078612Same thing for the purposes we want.
>>39078594the problem is that the actual ship got scrapped and Settle remarked early in thread one that scrapped ships don't manifest IIRC.>>39078615I wouldn't say all of them are, mainly Kaga and the Lesbian duo.>>39078632Surprised no one mentioned her before now, though people are thinking "good at assisting in paper work"/etc than hotness.
For a ship girl, what is worse for the original ship?Being decomissioned at the end of the war, sold for scrap?Being sold to another nation at the end of war, before finally being scrapped?Used as a testing ship, to see what nukes do to warships?Being scuttled in the war?Or being sunk in action?I figure the top 3 are less glamorous, however they did complete the mission and get most of the crew home.For some reason I expect to see the USS Juneau (CL-52) to show up here too.
>>39078632you hate the tenryuu so much you'd put her through the torture of paperwork?
>>39078632How about we don't fuckin do that. Bitch tries to hard to be hard, shit ain't gonna go fuckin well.
>>39078669Sunk in action isn't that bad for a warship. Probably getting sold to another nation and rusting at a pier before getting scrapped.
NAGATO FOR SECRETARY
>>39078632Why would you do that to her?
>>39078663>I wouldn't say all of them are, mainly Kaga and the Lesbian duo.True, but it remains that the Japanese contingent has more troublemakers even if the only reason is that there are more of them at this point.
>>39078628Hornet doesn't react – much – but even from this distance you can see her lower lip tighten up a bit, and her dark almond-shaped eyes drop a little. “I follow orders,” she replies simply. “Mass is key in carrier attack,” Kaga says. “If you don't attack all at once, your strength is wasted; destroyed piecemeal. You should know that better than anyone.” Ah, that beautiful tactical-strategic irony disconnect – alive and well. Hornet doesn't point this out, however – she just lets her eyes sink a little further, though her shoulders are still square and firm in her archery stance. “Speed of spotting is essential. Speed of launching,” Kaga continues. “You can't be expected to match Carrier Group One, but this aiming business has got to stop.” “Kaga,” Akagi says gently, taking her comrade by the arm. “Hornet-san's been working very hard, hasn't she?” It takes you a moment to remember what -san means; all the shipgirls seem to be capable of speaking any language they wish, but honorifics and other characteristics of their 'native' tongues seem to color everything they say, no matter what. You know this conversation's in English solely for Hornet's 'benefit.' “The abyssals don't care how hard she's working,” Kaga says cruelly. “She can't even match Group Five; if she can't contribute to a combined stri-”“Kaga!” Akagi says sharply. “We're all working hard to learn how to work together. And that's hard on ALL of us.” Kaga visibly glowers at this – not very much; just a tightening in her face and shoulders; but given what little you've seen of her, it qualifies as a significant display. “I apologize. It's unreasonable to ask so much of you, so soon after your arrival. The situation has been very tense.” She bows her head to Hornet in a formal apology. Hornet doesn't look at her – she just nervously fingers the tip of one arrow (that one, again) as she considers her words.
>>39078696I can get behind this.
>>39078680>>39078682i forgot that secretaries can't sortiewhy must life be so cruel to me
>>39078717>CrossroadsFuck that noise. Even if it was FER SCIENCE and the US can't keep her fleet up without running into depth, it was still harsh.
>>39078648I could get behind Big E cracking some heads, err...superstructure.
>>39078716“I understand,” she says softly. “Thank you,” Kaga says. “We're hard-pressed to defend the seas; and we desperately need every ASW escort we can find. Please join us in battle as soon as possible.” You feel your blood boil at that; a flash of heat that sings through your veins. Kaga's being a bitch, and you're pretty sure why, too. You straighten up – and nearly scream like a little girl when someone brushes your shoulder. You find (yet another) shipgirl hovering right by your shoulder, having slid into position to peer through the knothole with you. She's still looking, her complexion turning ruddy with anger even as you watch. She straightens up to stand very, very stiffly, a bow clenched in one white-knuckled fist and her flight deck vibrating along with her thrumming muscles on the opposite arm. Even her twin pigtails seem to be vibrating. The look on her face says it all – she's fixing to push Kaga's shit in, or at least thinking about it seriously. >The Admiral Abides>Head her off now. This is no time for escalation.>Tell the newcomer to calm down; you want to talk to Kaga. Alone.
>>39078716>Hornet doesn't look at her – she just nervously fingers the tip of one arrow (that one, again) as she considers her words.STAB HER IN THE NECK! LEGOLAS THAT SHIT HORNET-CHAN!

>>39078752>The Admiral AbidesThat's just like, your opinion, Kaga.
>>39078716>Kaga was historically a happy ship, a rarity in the IJN>KanColle turns her into a stoic>she's a bitch hereWoe to the tides of history.
>>39078752>>Tell the newcomer to calm down; you want to talk to Kaga. Alone.>>39078778Zuikaku. She and Kaga are often depicted as hating each other.
>>39078752>The Admiral AbidesWe have trouble understanding how their minds work. Might as well observe carriers in their natural habitat.

>>39078752>>The Admiral AbidesWreck her shit Zuikaku.

Zuikaku is votoms-like in appearance
>>39078778Zuikaku, best carrier.

>>39078752>offer her the cane as a beating stick>The Admiral abides
>>39078808Why is she being a bitch? No idea. Maybe because she's training alongside one of the ships that not only helped murder the unholy fuck out of her, but also utterly shattered her incredible pride as a member of her nation's most excellentest supremest awesomest fighting force ever?JUST A THOUGHT
>>39078817>>offer her the cane as a beating stickOh my goodness, yes.
>>39078752>The Admiral AbidesWith all the strangeness shipgirls are apparently involved in, can you imagine the shenanigans of a shipgirl appearing from the Age of Sail?
>>39078809hating that quickly leads to hatesex.

>>39078717>>39078738Can you spot Nagato in this pic?>>39078752>The Admiral AbidesGive her a thumbs up, slowly and dramatically.
>>39078809Mreh they got along in the anime well enough. Akagi could tell Kaga was being /nice/ to Zuikaku.
>>39078830REMATCH! REMATCH! MIDWAY REMATCH!Zuikaku can proxy for Big-E.
>>39078861>>39078847Man, now I imagine Nagato and the rest to have Hibakusha-like scars on their hulls.
>>39078752>Tell the newcomer to calm down; you want to talk to Kaga. Alone.
>>39078851The game took the idea Kaga was a hot head that can barely contain it due the fact she had a fucked up exhaust system that kept the insides of her ship steamy hot all the time.
>>39078851Hey, KanColle started it. If anything she should have been jovial in the face of the IJN's typical rigidity instead of being a quiet stoic. That was entirely against the ship's historical character.
>>39078817I vote for the beating stick.
>>390788613rd from the center on the right...i think.
>>39078870Oh gods, and then the Yorktown gets spontaneously summoned to wreck Kaga's face AGAIN for messing with her sister(ship). I would LOVE to see that happen.
>>39078716>“You can't be expected to match Carrier Group One, but this aiming business has got to stop.”Oooooooh, she's making sure that THIS time her aircraft actually find their target.
>>39078857Okay, scratch my options here.HMS SHEFFIELD WHEN>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlBiLNN1NhQ
>>39078855Don't make bring /a/ over here. >>39078866She's also not as much of a bitch as planefag is depicting her, at least as I see it. Or at least not as Settle sees her.
>>39078925>“You can't be expected to match Carrier Group One, but this aiming business has got to stop.”Says the ship that NEEDED spotters because they had no radar.
>>39078947She's just hung up on perfection because of her pride and her fuckup in Midway.
>>39078752>Tell the newcomer to calm down; you want to talk to Kaga. Alone."It's that attitude which got your historical counterpart sunk Kaga. For everything else, for all the intelligence the USN had coming into the battle, it still would never have happened had the Japanese command taken an honest look at their opponent. It was that arrogance, that fundamental underestimation of their opponent, which lead Japan to attack Midway, which lead Nagumo to take insufficient preparation for any American fleet. Now please, extract your foot from your mouth, and try to get along with Hornet, instead of simply throwing insults at her."
>>39078972She's in that place where she kinda has a point, but there are better ways of going about it. So, slight removal of stick from ass, small addition of humility and recognizing shipgirls with psychological issues.
>>39078991Oh you dun gouf'd now admiral, your wife's coming for ya
>>39079007The funny thing is, compared to all the others so far, her issues are pretty minor. AND she has emotional support from Akagi, which is more that what most other ship girls have.
>>39079047I think it's more understanding that Hornet and others have bigger issues and not nearly as much help with them.
>>39074353Darjeeling from Girls und Panzer. Fake-British tanker.
Hopefully nothing like it happens, but Hornet snapping and prison-shanking the fuck out of Kaga with her black arrow and screaming about how it felt to burn her shitty little island would be a sight to see
>>39079069>>39079047Yeah. Kaga ultimately means well, but she's really in a strange place for shipgirls in that she actually has someone she can lean on for support and her sinking was only partially her fault, something she can work on.
>>39075145Nagato, Kitakami, Takao, Hibiki, etc. all survived to the end of the war.
As much as your inner child wishes to race out there and defend the dark, lovely, willowy shipgirl's honor – Admirals should avoid that kind of thing, if at all possible. It's just not how you lead. You've got to show some trust; and not embarrass the pride of the ships themselves by making them think *you* think they need rescuing. All the same – Kaga's not being fair. If you were Japanese, you might come up with some elegant and passive-aggressive way of sending a clear message to Kaga – but, alas, you are only an American, and the only politics you know are blunt and to-the-point. So as the new carrier... (Zuikaku, your memory fills in after a moment-) moves to charge around the wall; you tug at her sleeve. She pauses long enough to let you hand her your battered wooden cane; some generic, ugly plastic-coated thing, true, but it has plenty of heft. You wink at her, and fucking *fade.* She charges around the barrier at full-tilt, her eyes ablaze with outrage. “KAGA!” her voice comes piercing through the rickety wooden wall. “Did you fall off the top of the bitch tree and hit every branch on the way down?” “T-the what?” Kaga's voice comes, quite taken aback. “Zuikaku, why do you have a-”“THIS,” Zuikaku's bright voice returns, “is a branch from the humility tree. Just one branch, but if I beat you with it ten or fifteen times, it'll add up to a whole tree's worth.”
>>39079231“Zuikaku,” Kaga replies with the soothing tones of someone who's not very worried at all, “please calm down before you do something you'll regret.”“You'll be regretting it more, sister,” Zuikaku snarls. The abortive sound of Akagi's attempt to intervene is sliced in two by the chilling sound of Kaga's razor-thin voice. “Are you threatening me, you second-rate divers-”The CRACK! of your cane snapping against Kaga's anatomy is the most beautiful thing you've ever heard, you think. You limp away from the wooden shed as awful sounds of combat ensue; the hollow booms and clangs of metal slamming into metal. The bass percussion is so loud the wooden shack is shivering; and you know that those girls – right now – could throw each other through that wooden partition without noticing its there. Best to gain some distance. You're only a few feet distant when Akagi's voice rises above the din, and a sudden lull falls. “Not good enough,” Kaga spits, her voice ragged and angry, blowing right through abortive sounds from Akagi trying to get her to shut the hell up. “You still can't land a solid strike, can you?” “More than that yankee dog you keep comparing me with!” she snaps. >Aaand that goes in our little black book.>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-
>>39079231Best Japanese carrier. Figures with how many times she survived combat in the war.
>>39079231>“THIS,” Zuikaku's bright voice returns, “is a branch from the humility tree. Just one branch, but if I beat you with it ten or fifteen times, it'll add up to a whole tree's worth.”My fucking sides just went to Operation Crossroads.

>>39079231Zuikaku is best girl!>>39079264>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-You messed with the wrong Rear Admiral!

>>39079231>>39079264>mfw>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-That's enough insulting our girl. If Zuikaku is going to pile on her too then we need to step in.
>>39079264>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT

>>39079302Zuikaku. She seems to be the only one using exclamation points.
>>39079264>>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-I think we'll have a consensus on this quickly. After all, Settle only knows how to be blunt and to the point.
>>39079264>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-INTERCEPT, 30 DEGREES STARBOARD, FLANKING SPEED!>>39079231>I Seriously Hope You Kanmusou Don't Do This

>>39079264>>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT->Zuikaku is hating on Hornet too"ALRIGHT YOU INCONSIDERATE SPOILED BITCH, GIVE ME BACK MY CANE BEFORE I SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR THROAT"

>>39079264>Aaand that goes in our little black book.Wait. Watch. That is the duty of the Admiral. Send most adorable Willie Dee to stay in Kaga/Zuikaku's room for a few nights....
>>39079264>>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-we didn't hand her our stick just so she could insult Hornet.
>>39079352Better idea.Summon Sammy.
>>39079346Funny story. It was fuckin science. I wasn't sure, and given the look on her fuckin face, neither was she.
>>39079346Hate might not be able to hurt them, but we can.It's a well known fact that all Navy Admirals are capable of flash stepping into a situation and smacking a motherfucker with their hats before dealing out a quick backhand, and a speech all before they have their hats straightened out again.
>>39079264>AWRIGHT THAT FUKKIN DOES IT-"Hey girls, do you remember the Marianas Turkey Shoot? Oh wait, Kaga was already napping. I bet you do though, Zuikaku"
>>39079352>corgisohoh my fucking godthis iswow
>>39079264Ooookay, I am confus.Did she just mess with Hornet too?Where's Big E when you need her?
>>39079377No, Summon ALL of them. And considering this is carrier class ship girls, we might need them.
>>39079393Awww yeah, toughest destroyer girl is here
>>39079393She looks like she's from Boston.
>>39079393Nigga that's kawaii.
>>39079393Bloody good show chap!
>>39079264Summon Sammy, then, summon the corgi-horde.
>>39079393Premium as always Pixelfag.
>>39079393Sweet! got more?
>>39079388>Funny story. It was fuckin science. I wasn't sure, and given the look on her fuckin face, neither was she.Look, man, if you get torn limb from limb by a PMSing shipgirl, the admiral is going to need to look for a new aide. >>39079391>Hate might not be able to hurt them, but we can.Never doubted that.
>>39079419Funny thing that.She's not even a destroyer.
>>39079400YES yes YES! Summon the hounds!
We need to file a formal complaint with Goto. This is beyond irresponsible and unacceptable treatment.We should threaten to remove USN support unless he brings his command into line.
>>39079416Are you kidding me? America does random insertion shit illegally and then denies it all the time!
>>39079415American DEs can take on Japanese Battleships. Setting Sammie after Japanese Carriers is not a fair fight for the carriers.
>>39079456Fiiiiiine, destroyer *escort*Happy?
>>39079400Corgi time now
>>39079459Stop being so serious.
>>39079470>American DEs can take on Japanese Battleships. Setting Sammie after Japanese Carriers is not a fair fight for the carriers.Tell me more.
>>39079470>American DEs can take on Japanese Battleships.You mean land a few lucky hits with torpedoes and 5-inch popguns before getting bitchslapped by *real* naval guns.
>>39079457I wonder how the Abyssals would react to Corgis?
>>39079454Like one of these stupid bitches could actually fuckin kill me. I fuckin doubt it. Better shit has fuckin tried.
>>39079483AND LET SLIP THE BLOOD SEA DEVILS OF WAR!
>>39079475Sorry, didn't mean that as "you're wrong and should feel wrong"But that particular incident was impressive enough even if she was a Destroyer. But the fact that she's a DE makes it even moreso.
>>39079400And so it begins....
>>39079459>implying Goto isn't recording the whole scene for scientific purposes and comedy>But mainly comedy
>>39079497>Tell me more.Leyte fucking Gulf
>>39079511>Like one of these stupid bitches could actually fuckin kill me. I fuckin doubt it. Better shit has fuckin tried.If you're so confident about it, bro.

>>39079446Not at the moment, but I'm planning on getting at least one piece up per thread!
>>39079497Bruh, Sammy, USS Johnston, and the other tin cans of Taffy 3 off Samar were the shit. Kongou and her sisters were pretty much miffed and had to withdraw.
>>39079517>But that particular incident was impressive enough even if she was a Destroyer. But the fact that she's a DE makes it even moreso.Not denying that, but in the nSammy B. still got her shit pushed in by superior firepower and numbers in the end.
>>39079529Or fit both in. Our rage attracts the Corgis and they swarm from everywhere like Zerglings.
>>39079533Alright then. I shall wait warmly for your next work.
>>39079520>Comedy>"personnel" are acting utterly unprofessional to the point of insulting and bullying allies in front of their faces>"Comedy"I'm sure you'd feel the same way if Nagato was laughing in Arizona's face for blowing up.

>>39079540>Bruh, Sammy, USS Johnston, and the other tin cans of Taffy 3 off Samar were the shit. Kongou and her sisters were pretty much miffed and had to withdraw.>Kongou and her sisters>battleships
>>39079540You say that like Taffy 3 lost that fight.
>>39079554Well considering Arizona's disposition, she may respond by trying to blow Nagato's head off.
>>39079565Honorary battleships.>>39079554Dude, did you forget the mess room shenanigans with the cruiser slut already? It's not like Goto is above it.
>>39079400Horrible violence comes on tiny padded feet.
>>39079565Nagato and Yamato were there too. Guess what, Heering traded shots with Nagato and lived to tell the tale.
>>39079551We are...THE CORGIMANCER!!!
>>39079546>Her near naked and burning skipper was shouting orders from the destroyed bridge so her crew can steer her--manually>Gave the larger IJN a fucking hard time, making the opposing admiral think a larger pincer maneuver is on its way>Blazed a trail for Taffy 3Truly, Johnston is a legend.
>>39079570No Ghost, I say it in awe.>>39079565Son, you better read up on the battle off samar then, and be enlightened.
Kaga's cruising for a bruising.When are we getting more US carriers to get even more awkwardly passive-aggressive moments between the two navies? Bong carriers are fine too.
>>39079554>I'm sure you'd feel the same way if Nagato was laughing in Arizona's face for blowing up.I doubt Nagato is ever going to laugh at someone for being blown up, considering that she sort of got nuked. By a 10-megaton H-bomb.
>>39079636my bad, meant to quote >>39079543
>>39079636>Son, you better read up on the battle off samar then, and be enlightened.Or watch the Battle 360 episode on it.

Guess what, Heering traded shots with Nagato and lived to tell the tale.And you seriously think a DE could've taken a true-blue battleship in a straight fight?>>39079662Yeah, Taffy 3 won, but Johnston, Sammy B., Hoel, and Gambier Bay all got their asses kicked.

Do not feed the carriers.
>>39079724Repulse from Arpeggio of Blue Steel.
>>39079707Man, can we just agree that Taffy 3's sacrifice paved the way for the downfall of His Imperial Majesty's Navy in the battle of Leyte Gulf? Just because they fell, doesn't mean they're any less badass.
>>39079724Repulse I think.
>>39079707>Yeah, Taffy 3 won, but Johnston, Sammy B., Hoel, and Gambier Bay all got their asses kicked.Yes, that's what happens when destroyers, destroyer escorts, and escort carriers encounter a battlefleet. What a shock, ships that aren't designed for straight-up surface combat get sunk. That's not surprising.Chasing off said battlefleet while only losing 4-5 ships? That's fucking surprising. That battlefleet not being able to hit the broad side of a barn? Also fucking surprising.
>>39079765I can't remember if she's been mentioned or not, I want to say she has.

>>39079808but what if its an entire navy of meidos.
>>39079707>Yeah, Taffy 3 won, but Johnston, Sammy B., Hoel, and Gambier Bay all got their asses kicked.Yeah, but not before sinking 3 heavy cruisers and heavily damaging another 3.Even by tonnage sunk Taffy 3 probably won.
>>39079808>Suddenly HMS Prince of Wales comes in>Oh do calm down, Hood, my darling, lest you'd instigate the peasants a little more.>Le Ojou Laugh.gif
>>39079827>an entire navy of meidosI'd read the quest, watch the anime, buy the blu-rays and choke on the writer's cock.
>>39079833Taffy 3 definitely won. CVEs are not the same as CVLs
>>39079833LIKE I KEEP SAYING, TAFFY 3 *WON*. THEY STILL GOT BEATEN UP IN DOING SO.
>>39079816Does this look like "4chan.co.uk" to you? Get the fuck out, Yuropoor.
>>39079393Perfect. Got that "I will take no shit from you, even if you outweigh me by over 10:1" look to her.>>39079540Not so much "had to withdraw" as "Ugaki either got terrified of the US fleet, or decided that honor had been served, and that he could safely retreat without more insane suicide missions directed by his superiors". Had Ugaki decided to push it, Taffy 3, and some of the handful of remaining transports, would've been easily sunk.>>39079707As mentioned, the surprising thing is that Taffy 3 did a tenth so well as it did. A tiny little force of DDs, DEs, and CVEs managed to deal out just as much as it took to a vastly superior force.>>39079816I think you're making a strawman out of one anon who engaged in a bit of hyperbole.
>>39079833Yeah, lost 2 CVE, 2 DD's, 1 DE and 23 planes to 3 Heavy cruiser. Taffy three kicked ass.
>>39079858[insert name here] FUCK YEAH! is faggotry of the highest order.Plz ignore if you weren't replying to me kthx
>>39079707then I think we've got differing definitions of 'got their asses kicked'. The Johnston, Sammy B, Hoel, and to a lesser extent, the Gambier Bay and St. lo traded themselves for three heavy cruisers sunk and three damaged, plus a destroyer and 50-odd bids (and air crews) the IJN really couldn't afford to lose, forced Kurita to withdraw, and effectively broke the IJN, which, assuming my history isn't failing me, here, never really tried another major surface action after that, and kinda got pissed away in penny packets. Yes, they went to the bottom. That I'll give you, absolutely. They went down swinging, and they took the Chokai, Chikuma, Nowaki, and Suzyua with them. They turned back the most powerful surface action group the IJN could field at the time. To me, that's a far cry from 'got their asses kicked.'
Planefag, will SoDak make an appearance? Since we've been talking about her and all last thread...
>>39079909>then I think we've got differing definitions of 'got their asses kicked'.That we do. Taffy 3 did a fuckton of damage, but took a lot of damage in return.>>39079876>I think you're making a strawman out of one anon who engaged in a bit of hyperbole.Probably.

>>39079876>and some of the handful of remaining transports, would've been easily sunk.Not to mention the shelling the marines offshore would have taken surely. From battleship and Yamato-class guns.
>>39079939New thread deme!
Oh and just to voice it in this thread too. GODDAMN IS THIS CLIPPY PIECE OF SHIT ANNOYING!
>>39079909>differing definitions of 'got their asses kicked'.The Yamato alone had about the same tonnage as all of Taffy 3. I count the fact that Taffy 3 drove the opposing fleet away as a significant win and something that can be thrown in the face of the Japanese ship girls whenever we want.
>>39079991inspect element and delete it.
>>39079991Calm down you poofter, Battalion's on the line.
>>39079968Actually, it's not because the Japanese still lost more men and tonnage in just that battle.>>39079973To be technical, it was soldiers, not marines.
>>39080009This. Our definition of ass-kicking should be measured in how much it allows us to bully the IJN.

>>39079968>Well yeah, but it's like saying that Russia got its ass kicked just because it lost so many guys beating the Germans.They...kind of did? If you beat a guy unconscious but get a few ribs broken in the process, then you still got beaten up even if you won the fight in the end.At this point I'm arguing semantics and I hate doing that, so conceded.

>>39080495The archive description will include "and we made a giant mistake which ruined everything", correct? We probably did that at some point.>>39080509Yep.
