You are Ryan Settle, one-star Rear Admiral of the United States Navy, and you're rapidly running out of patience with your new job. In front of you: a big guy wearing a welding mask and carrying a truly gigantic angle grinder. Behind you is a young tomboy with a busted nose who's trying to cover her face and cower behind you at the same time. And on the ground is a very unconscious young girl who has just had the sense literally scared out of her. The man in the mask lowers his angle grinder and slaps his welding mask up in annoyance as he looks down at Ikazuchi. “Dammit,” he says. “Another destroyer. Not even five points.” >... okay, Mogami, we're going to the hospital. Fuck this.>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole!>Say nothing about it. This way, sooner or later, welding-mask guy will try it on Sammy.>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.” >other?
>>39673342>Sortie to E-6
>>39673342>other?"Look, can you fix my fucking shipgirl?"

>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole!Minimal shenanigans on base, thank you. At least in view of the commanding officers...Best night of the week!
>>39673342THE BEST TIME HAS FINALLY COME!>other?"How's that 14-inch?"
>>39673342>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole
>>39673342>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.”
>>39673464Man, I only know half those acronyms.
>>39673342>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.”>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole!
>>39673342>>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole
>>39673342>>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole!Seriously she didn't have it coming (same with Choukai and Sammygeddon)Time to get the big question out of the way: Souryuu when?
>>39673342So Planefag, what are your thoughts on the latest ships?
>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.”
>>39673342>>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.”Shit, it's back, god bless planefag

Well shit, brother and a friend are going bowling. And here I thought I'd have a bigger impact.Hope the thread is long, don't yall fuck up now, and keep dear Arizona and little Willie safe!
>>39673518NJP = Nonjudicial punishment. it's fucking bullshit for officers to do when they don't think you've fucked up enough to rate a court but you've fucked up bad enough to get fucked. DUI = I'm not fucking telling you if you don't fucking know. UA = effectively AWOL. except we don't call it AWOL anymore. We call it UA. Unauthorized fucking absence or some shit.

>>39673738So Hate, when do you think you'll start outfitting the Corgis with some of these bad boys?
>>39673840i dunno. ever since the skip gave her a 'flotilla' of the little shits, I been quietly seeing how many i can give to her before someone notices.
>>39673951>"With a staff like that, you must be an Ambush Sergeant."
Oh yeah, before I forget, congrats on escaping higher education

Hey guys I think I have an idea on what with the BB-61 Iowa. In real life its is moor in LA and what happen in LA people?>Say nothing about it. This way, sooner or later, welding-mask guy will try it on Sammy

>>39674340How do you feel about HW:RM dying, Bentus?
Callin it for SCOLD! Writing!>>39674374>mfw
>>39674329BB-61 was also refitted with missiles, which might match with Settle's trauma dreams.I wonder what a Harpoon launcher looks like in shipslut form.

>>39674329well it only took a billion threads before someone woke up to that one eh
>>39674477I fucking knew from the first time you fucking mentioned her, fag.
>>39674374>>39674417>>39674429>>39674440>>39674469... Our song is infinitely sad.They had a perfect thing and they fucked it up.
>>39674511SOMEONE SOUNDS DEFENSIVE
>>39674535It will keep flying in our hearts
>>39674477>>39674511>>39674511Same as CPL. Hate This is just my first time being on action thread
Oh yeah, some anon said that pic related is perfect reference for Old Ironsides.Just look at that hat.
>>39674537I don't believe the good corporal can sound like anything else.>>39674549That is true.
>>39674538Also wildfires.Like fuck there was one on the edge of LA just the other day, saw it from the freeway
>>39674329>>39674477I live in LA. What is this about LA? And why do you continue to ignore mai shipfu planefag? Why?
>>39674572>lane victoryhard to see miss plebtier when someone sexier is docked right next to her wwwww

>>39674233>KM shipsluts start coming back>Germans reflexively shit their pants and start tripping over themselves while crying>Send them all to Japan, they still think WW2 was cool over there right?
>>39674572LA was attacked by abyssals. Iowa was destroyed by them so they probably corrupted her shipgirl form.
>>39674572Keeping in mind I'm speaking in ignorance, I'm guessing LA got its shit wrecked by the Abyssals.
Running to dinner real quick, update will be later than usual. Sorry, trying to get back into the swing of things, which is why I started this thread an hour earlier than normal, toot toot~
>>39674559Really? He pretty frequently sounds offensive to me.
>>39674623>LA was attacked by abyssals. Iowa was destroyed by them so they probably corrupted her shipgirl form.BB-4 is notBB-61god dammit
>>39674666What do you expect from fucking namefags and Anons?
>>39674588You can spot a real LA shipfag if they remember her. Back when men were real men, the Victory was our shipfu.
>>39674591What ass?Still would though.
>>39674557>>39674591If you slap that ass, you'd probably break your hand and be sent to the hospital.
>>39674633I may be missing the nuances. Such things look relatively similar when you are a gigantic Harbour Ship capable of running over fleets without noticing.>>39674666Calm your ire. Few take the time to care, but those that do cherish them all the more.
>>39674623Oh. Huh. Missed that bit of history. WELP. Good luck all.
>>39674695I remember her. only fucking reason to have a navy in the first fucking place is to deliver marines to kick in the door of the people that piss you off. and supply the marines once they fucking get there.
>>39674623BB-61, the USS Iowa, is intact and at her berth. I have this on very fucking good authority.
>>39674625Oh god, please tell me the Scott is okay!
>>39674811I bet you go on tours inside her all the time wwwwww
>>39674811And not reactivated yet, right?
>>39674911They are adorable, are they not?
Settle was fucking commanding a modernized Iowa.Settle defended LA during the attackIowa was hit, fucked up Settles leg.Settle got sent over here with the US ship sluts because people get back in working shape a lot faster than big ass ships do.Th Iowa is going to get sailed over here once it's fixed and we're going to sail that bitch into battle side by side with our girls.
>>39674862Iowa likes to be stuffed by Boy ScoutsJust like CV-10
>>39674768Lane Victory or the Queen Mary. Only 90s kids will understand.
>>39674965All BB's like boy scouts inside them.
>>39674963But will Iowa provide delicious sweet corn? Will she be forced to listen to other BBs discussing who makes the best BBQ?
>>39674963That was my first thought, but I thought that LA was the first appearance of the abyssals? No way she would have been combat-ready
>>39674963Hot damn, where'd you get that? Haven't found anything that specific in the threads so far.
>>39674811Ah ok then. >>39674666I meant what I said, not like there can't be two fucking abyssals in the same goddamn sea with the same fucking name. Jesus Christ.
>>39674963This does bring up a point: does a ship have to sink/be scrapped before becoming a shipslut?
>>39675036seems like speculation to me since none of us know what happened in LA. Other than it was attacked and Sette was there.It's good speculation though.
Pretend it is Iowa, or better yet Missouri
>>39675080>no one ever includes best carrier
>>39675063Nobody knows yet! Nobody wants find out, either.Planefag has actually said this much
>>39675080dem legs, goddamn
R8 my Roma.
>>39675109Makes you wonder what the interior of Ironclad shipsluts are like.
>>39674963The skipper had a flight 1 burke, not Iowa
>>39675109Why the hell not? Just scrap and old destroyer and see what happens.
>>39675136the faeries wear older uniforms
>>39675125Mami/10, would feed to caterpillars.
>>39675136Cramped, moist, hot.
>>39675063We know that the physical ship doesn't disappear when a ship "comes back". Other than that...
>>39675162So, Confederate fairies?I could jump on that wild ride.
>>39675180Just hope nothing goes wrong in ammunition storage.
>>39674944sure, as long as you don't think about where they're coming from
>>39675189[Spoiler]Unless of course the reason I was able to come back is that it was scrapped for parts[/spoiler]
>>39675238Why DOES Musashi likes shotas so much?
>>39675220CSS ships are utter whores. They'll fight for anyone.
>>39675303CSS ships search for "large negro phalluses" when no one is looking
>>39675302That's just how it is.
>>39675303Do you think Virginia and Monitor still hold a rivalry if they became shipsluts?
>>39675240[Spoiler]Even in that case the ship still isn't gone because she came back. Given that they seem to be noological beings, I'm tempted to say that the physical status of the ship doesn't matter so much as that the ship be 'finished'. That is, because shipgirls are the 'idea' of a ship rather than the ship itself, they can't come back if the idea is still being made. [/spoilersdoworkon/tg/]
>>39675347Of course they would. Dat sexual tension.
>>39675347Do you think Virginia would try to make the President pick cotton?
>>39675142Shit.The spoilered shit is still totally fucking happening.
>>39675376They just need some bourbon before the clothing flies off
>>39675376Sure is a rather big size difference between the two of them...>>39675388
Some one made a kantai version of the CSS Virginia, cant seem to find it.
>>39675347Would she come back as the CSS Virgina or the USS Merrimack? Did the USS Merrimack get brainwashed into becoming the CSS Virginia, or was it voluntary?
You look down at the prone, unconscious form of Ikazuchi, the only shipgirl you've met so far who has been unconditionally helpful. Not completely bonkers, or seething with barely-restrained war traumas, or just plain murderhobo insane. Just bouncy, eager, and... cute. Yes, cute. Kawaii as fuck, as they say in the vernacular. You've had a long, taxing day in which you Fucked Up, and as you stare down at the unconscious girl, it's hard to remember your professionalism. You look up at the big guy with the welding mask and angle-grinder. “What the FUCK is wrong with you!?” you snap at him. He raises an eyebrow, eyeballing you up and down. “Who the fuck are you?” You kneel by Ikazuchi and slip your hands under her shoulders, hoisting her into a sitting position as she begins to stir and murmur. “What the FUCK is wrong with you!?” you ask again as you wave your hand in front of the destroyer's face.
>>39675451He sighs and slings the angle grinder over one shoulder, glaring down at you and Ikazuchi with undisguised annoyance. “Listen, it's been a long day and one of these goddamn rugrats are always knocking at my door because someone tripped and fell going down the stairs. Like THAT one,” he snorts, pointing at Mogami, who's been exposed to sight when you knelt. She cringes away, still covering her abused nose. “She deed!” she says nasally. “I saw her trip at the top!” The gruff-looking, broad-shouldered guy squints from under the lip of his raised welding mask. “Onto a *fist?*”Mogami glances away. “... it was very dark.” Grinder-guy snorts derisively. “Whatever. Hand out discipline like it's 1941, shit on the UCMJ, what-the-fuck ever, but I'm done taking extra unpaid overtime for it.” He turns to head back in as he speaks, already closing the door behind him. “We're open at eight – till then, fuck right off.” >What the actual fuck did you just say to me, *sailor?*>Fuck this assmunch, to the hospital we go. I'll sort him out later.>YOU'RE A PRETTY BIG GUY
>>39673342>>“With an ambush like that, you must be a Staff Sergeant.”>>Scold the man soundly. Ikazuchi's the first non-problem escort ship you've met in this hellhole!Do that to the Torpedo Cruisers, not the destroyers.

>>39673342>EYE-TALIANS STILL A SHIT EDITION
>>39675653One hell of a talk. Unlikely we can beat him up, but there's plenty of undesirable posts he can be assigned to, and we need these shipsluts fixed up.
>>39675471>Fuck this assmunch, to the hospital we go. I'll sort him out later.wow, he seems unhappy. let's get that guy some paperwork! subordinates love paperwork.
>>39675771He can check over the paperwork those other two had to do

>>39675698>philstineswhat I'd say about Souryuu haters. You can't go wrong with any dragon though.>>39675762He always talks shit about WW2 Italy.

>>39675912Two flight decks.Pic related is superior CV
Is sammy going to fight, or are we going to sit here disappointed all night.
>>39675766>there's plenty of undesirable posts he can be assigned to, and we need these shipsluts fixed up.Except if what Tatsuta and Tenryuu told us is correct, he is one of few people who is comfortable enough around the shipgirls to work on them, and maybe literally the only one.And he just told us he is overworked, meaning all his time and then some is spend working on them.So, what, exactly, can we do to this guy that would not be a net detriment to the Navy? If we have him reassigned to another post, shipgirls' maintenance either doesn't get done or gets done half-assedly by sailors struggling with existential dread.If we have him do paperwork, less maintenance gets down and now he has some bullshit dividing his attention.Probably the best outcome is that our raging quietly disappears into the upper echelons and we look like a fool, which I can live with, but I kinda think maybe we should avoid that if we can.
>>39676000Medusa a best
>>39676009Or we can just tell the guy to work on the girls we have with us and then "encourage" the other girls on the base not to go to him for frivolous things.
>>39675857Bah! Who needs victory, skill or good judgement when one has style, good food, and a memorable death?
>>39675857That's because WW2 Italy was really shit.From the cucked GHQ full of incompetence to design doctrines that was literally years behind FUCKING BRITAIN, to the fact that they couldn't even coup properly, not to mention that they were so bad at war that their ally had to bail them out...Shit. Even the Italian planes suffered from hypercucked production methodologies, ie, THE ITALIANS HANDCRAFTED EACH AND EVERY PLANE...Shit. Even the Brits could kick their asses, and Britain's basically the massive fuckup of the Allies.
Or we could tell Hate he's got a new playground for his charges and push it through. Cue asshole here suddenly having to deal with thirty hyper-active boats.
>>39675990>this is supposed to be Yorktown in the animeI laughed so much
>>39676068you mean france

One Italian man has a better chance of winning a battle than 20,000 italiansItalian midget subs were insane.Italian ground forces surrendered to a few hundred British for no reason.ie italians shit

>>39676068but planes were the only good part about italy
“What in the actual fuck did you just say to me, sailor?” you snarl, your voice dangerously low. He tries to slam the door in your face, but you stick your foot into the crack. You wrench it open again, your bad mood flaring up once again. “I SAID,” the man says, spinning around to tower half a head taller than you, glaring down his nose, “TO FUCK OFF!” “You're a pretty big guy,” you say placidly, letting your fire build a bit. “For you,” he replies reflexively. “All alone. In a dark corner of the base, with only one unreliable and easily-intimidated witness.” He glances over your shoulder at Mogami, and squeezes the trigger on his angle grinder for a moment, letting it whirr menacingly. “Was telling an admiral to fuck off part of your plan?” you ask him menacingly. “Hey, if I pull that mask off, will you die?”
This shit getting boring, your failed state food come yet.
Mr Planefag, Mr Planefag! Will you ever run Strike Witches again?
>>39676225“The fuck?” he says, quirking an eyebrow. “Admi-”“How about that fucking rank patch, you KNUCKLE-DRAGGING MORON!” you bellow, your wrath good and hot now. “Who the FUCK do you think you are?” He retreats a step automatically and you step right in to take it, keeping your nose about two inches away from his. “If you say one more fucking word I swear to god I'll find you a job where you've got to touch SHIT with your HANDS!” His eyes widen, and he shoves his face forward an inch, bloodshot, exhausted eyes staring into yours. “Big step up from live bombs, you shit-kicking pig-sticking Annapolis douchenozzle.” Mogami audibly gasps behind you, which nicely vocalizes your own reaction. You stare at the big man in shock as he carries on. “You know what I could make in the private sector? More than a fucking E-6 does, that's for goddamn sure. Please, fire me. See if I GIVE a fuck!” You blink. “You EOD motherfuckers really *are* crazy, aren't you?” “Says the shithead arguing with a guy holding an angle...” he blinks himself, seeming to see you for the first time; studying your face carefully in the harsh blue-white light of the arc-lamp above the door. “... Admiral. Admiral?”“Yes,” you say, feeling a little better now that he's beginning to comprehend the brawn of the pooch he's screwed. “Admiral SETTLE?”“YES.”His eyes widen with a flash of pure, true hatred, and this time YOU step back automatically as wrath contorts his features. “YOU. YOU. YOU MOTHERFUCKER. YOU'RE THE SON-OF-A-BITCH, THE STUPID CRAZY SON-OF-A-BITCH-” he unslings the angle-grinder and wields it menacingly. “NAVY GET OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUT!” The angle-grinder screams to life with a high-pitched REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!>Look up. Say “no.” >... oh. Oh, it's... that guy. Yeah, we're better off with the hospital. >Blow the rape whistle. >You wanna go m8 I'll hook u in da gabbah I swear on me mum
I do believe that he alternates between this and SWQ when he feels like it.

>>39676246>Blow the rape whistle.
>>39676139Actually, italian tank crews were also batshit insane too.No tanks? Fuck you, we'll strap a fucking mortar to a truck and blap enemy tanks! No fucking truck? WE'LL ATTACH THE MORTAR TO A CART AND TOW IT.AND THEN WE CHARGE INTO BATTLE, BECAUSE OUR GENERALS ARE INCOMPETENT CUCKFACES WHO CAN'T LEAD.
>>39676246>Look up. Say “no.”
>>39676241He will run it right when your hope is breathing its last breaths. That way he can string you out again.

>>39676246>>... oh. Oh, it's... that guy. Yeah, we're better off with the hospital.
Well, apparently we are terrifying to even our own side! Hurrah!That said... >Look up. Say “no.” Then apply boot to balls as he's left himself wide open!

http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-32531376Just going to leave this here.
Fuck yeah, shipsluts! Nice thing to come home to see after I've been in the mood for KanColle stuff all day anyway!>>39676246>Look up. Say “Are you sure you want to do that?”He may be fine with getting fired, but I feel like assaulting an admiral with a powertool will get you a wee bit worse than just "fired".Though, maybe get a little distance because asserting our authority is one thing, but maybe not such a great idea if it gets us murderized by an enraged subordinate. Assertive, but wary.
You know, I'm halfway wondering if this guy is more scared of us because we 'might' have another live shell to dispose of and he thinks we're going to drop it into his lap?
LOL and then leave.

>>39676665Yes, yes they are.
Does not inspire the same awe as battleships.What do you think?
>>39676780Who's the shorthaired one? I need her art. for reasons.
>>39676665Belated but yeah agreed there including the whole DesDiv6 being the (best) little sister division>>39676780If I wanted boobs I'd go look at either Takao's family, Kongou's or the dragons.>>39676860Is that a grown up Izazuma? Dunno how to feel.>>39676921which color? White's Hamakaze.
>>39676921From Left to Right: Isokaze, Hamakaze, Urakaze, Tanikaze.Long, black hair is Isokaze, short grey hair is Hamakaze, blue hair is Urakaze, short black hair is Tanikaze.
>>39676921there are two shorthaired ones.Which one?Then again Hamakaze a best.
>>39676955>Is that a grown up Izazuma?Yes. Even if it's just a dream.

>>39677317Because to value something is to accept it can be taken away at any time.
>>39677372Sounds defeatist. To value something is to be willing to go to lengths to protect it. The measure of value you place upon it is how far you're willing to go.
>>39677269good thing there isn't as much competition for her compared to Kaga (for those with prototypical Nippon fetishes), Akagi, the Dragons, KC's Chihaya, etc.

>>39677428Indeed, but Jun'yo stands out

>>39677460It is through tragedy that we learn the value of what we cherish.
>>39677460That's because the ships that shared their names actually suffered the same fate.Ids historical.

You gaze impassively at the man in the oil-stained jumpsuit as he guns the grinder a few times – which has been dubbed “THOR” in block letters sharpied onto a strip of masking tape stuck to the side. After a long, drawn out REEEEEEE, he lets the tool spin down, watching you for a reaction. You cross your arms and give him the squint-eye. “No.” “Reeeeeeeeeeee,” replies Thor.You shake your head. Behind you, Mogami is helping a now-conscious Ikazuchi to her feet. “Are you-”“REEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeee....”You clear your throat. “Are you g-”“reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-” “OING TO CUT THE SHIT A-”“REEEEREEREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”You and the big guy stare each other down for a second. You open your mouth, and see his finger tense on the trigger. Sighing, you draw in a deep breath and prepare to shout over the goddamn thing. “AREYOUGOINGTOSTOPFUCKIGAROUNDBEFOREIWRAPTHECORDAROUNDYOURFUCKINGTHROAT-”“REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeerrrrrrwhrrrrrrrrrrrrrr skeeeeeeeet,” Thor opines as it skirls to a sad, grating halt. The big man squeezes the trigger desperately a few times, eliciting only small clicks.
>>39677575>>39677631WHEN SHE'S COMPLETE.That means never.
>>39677495>this videvery time
>>39677702“Crab.” The new voice sounds sane, and cultured, and tired. From behind the towering jumpsuit-clad man comes a slender, tired-looking guy in a rumpled dress shirt and half-loosened tie, his slacks creased and covered with a thin dusting of... something. His sleeves have been unbuttoned and rolled up his forearms, and in one hand he holds the end of “Thor's” cord. “What the fuck.”He lowers the angle grinder sheepishly. “This guy-”“What about her?” he asks, nodding at Mogami, who's still clutching her bleeding nose. “She's with this guy-”“Crab, she's leaking... bleeding... leaking?” he shakes his head. “Goddammit, Crab-”“This guy,” Crab says defensively as he points at you, “This guy-”The new guy flings his palms up in a gesture that says “stop talking,” and 'Crab' stops talking. Without further ado, he slips past you, out the door, and takes Mogami by the hand. He leads her inside – cringing as she passes the big guy, but going the nonetheless. He gives you both an acrid look before vanishing into the dark interior with the shipgirl.“... who was-”“Wainwright,” 'Crab' replies. “He's a doctor. Apparently he does metal sculpture or some shit as a hobby, so they figured he was qualified for... this.” He waves his hand vaugely at the machine shop which occupies the interior of the building, then flips the light switch on with the edge of the grinder's wheel. Fluorescent lamps buzz as they warm to life overhead. Crab stalks into the interior and almost tosses the big angle grinder onto a cluttered metal shelf. “Go ahead, make yourself freaking comfortable, asshole.”
>>39677495Like how it leaves out the I-8 slaughter.
>>39677726You cross the threshold carefully, looking around for something heavy and metallic in case you need to clock the guy one. The angle grinder might've been a bluff (a very effective one, in Ikazuchi's case,) but you can feel the anger radiating off the man. Hate was right – the man is well and truly pissed off at you. Ikazuchi hovers at the door nervously until you beckon her in. She skitters after you and manages to place herself mostly behind you without obviously cowering. When Crab turns back to you, however, you feel her small hand grab a handful of your shirtcuff. “You figure out who I am?” he asks you.You nod slowly. “I've been fixing to eat your ass whole since you pulled that boneheaded stunt,” he snaps at you. He cuts you off as you try to reply; “Shut up, just shut the fuck UP. If I could quit this job, I would – I was supposed to be out early, but they stop-lossed me.”You blink. “Come again?”“What? You didn't know? Must be nice being a flag-rank fucker,” he grows, his entire everything radiating hostility. “Between the cross-MOS skill requirements, the psychological profiling and the goddamn security clearances required, they're having a hell of a time finding people to run this fucking sideshow.” He flicks a glance at Ikazuchi, who cringes against your side. “Scuttlebutt says it was an executive order, but either way, some of us are stuck here. Because we have a very particular set of skills. So for starters, Admiral Asswagon -” he holds up one finger - “I don't give a fuck about pissing you off, because you can't get rid of me if you tried. You know how many welders there are in the Corps who're qualified to work on armored plate these days? Not fucking many.”
>>39677758“How the hell-”“My cousin runs a business making armored cars for rich Saudis with too many enemies,” he replies. “I got bored and signed up. Which leads me to TWO-” another finger - “how many welders who can work on armored plate also served as an EOD tech?” “Uh-”“Right. Which brings me to three-” another finger - “what the fuck do you think you're doing sticking your goddamned hands into business you're not trained for?”“Wait a minute-” “YOU wait a minute, motherfucker!” he snarls. “Because nobody dies alone with a bomb, you fucking understand? You know shrapnel is? Play roulette all you want, but you don't go fucking around with explosives. What the fuck is wrong with you?”“It was an emergency,” you reply, unsettled, “Arizona had-”
>>39677794“Oh your poor darling ship-waifu had a shell in her and you were gonna be the big heee-rooo,” he drawls mockingly. “FUCK you. What is WRONG with you?”Your anger, already close to the surface, flares up again. You reign it in – taking out your frustration at today's fuckups won't make this better – but you can't quite keep the heat out of your voice. “Your goddamn team ran away and fucking LEFT me there!” “I already chewed them out for that,” he replies. “They SHOULD have dragged your ass out of there and kicked it a few times. We can't replace those goddamn ships.” He gestures at Ikazuchi, who flinches reflexively. “But I can't blame them for running like hell when they see somebody who doesn't have a fucking clue what they're doing sticking their hands into a live bomb.”You're faintly aware of your molars grinding together. >And what the fuck do you know about removing live ords from a ship? Were you a bomb disposal officer as well, *Marine?*>Chill your tits buddy. I made like a good officer and delegated to people who knew what the hell they were doing.

If you're going to be such a noble soul, why don't you wax poetry for the Allied dead that gave their lives to put a stop to the above instead?

So, some advanced planning for later scenes... which ship are we supposed to be waifuing for again?
>>39678452None as of yet. They're all too fucked in the head to want that.
>>39678433They probably just want to put it behind them and not give a shit about what the damn kids are doing these days
>>39678452I can't even frikken remember who we've met so far.
>>39678452None of them, Anon. They're warships capable of devastating cities and fleets, the literal representations of the years and years of tradition and duty and honor of the Fleet, laying on their shoulders. And you want to stick your dick in one? You're fucking sick.
>>39678307Wow, so much edge I'm practically bleeding from just reading this.And I'm from one of the countries Japan conquered in WW2. I love my shipgirls as much as the next turboweeb, but AT LEAST I KNOW MY HISTORY.Hachi's a war criminal, THE BISMARCK GOT SUNK BY BIPLANES, Ikazuchi saved Allied sailors, and Japan's Damage Control was so shit they let a spanking new carrier fucking explode on her maiden voyage.it's the same one I say who has a farting problem.Also, Taffy 3 is the best fucking Task force. HALSEY DID NOTHING WRONG.GAMBIER BAY WHEN PLANEFAGGOT
>>39678452Who knows, we have no fucking idea of what the main group of shipgirls will be.But what I do know: Not Kaga>>39678470But thats how planefag tends to write girls these days. Have you forgotten Minna's cupious issues?

>>39678486>Ikazuchi saved allied sailorsWe should buy her a beer.Or if she's one of the underaged shipsluts (likely) an icecream.
>>39678496None of the girls are really jumping out at me yet.Maybe we're gay.
>>39678496Minna was still technically human and not struggling with the very fact of her own existence, just her previous boyfriend being dead. Out of all the girls we've met, the only one who has shown any interest at all in humans is Kongo and that's at her own Admiral. Arizona doesn't talk, Hornet is nearly a basket case, Willie D is also a basket case and a little sister and Sammy is fricking Sammy. None of the Jap ships really know us either. So leave waifuing alone for another dozen or so threads at least.
“Woooooaaaaaah,” you say, holding your palms up to slow him down. “Woah, there, buddy-”“I'm not a fucking horse-”“Yeah, they smell better,” you return. “All I did was hoist the shell straight up and out – on command. I made like every Admiral Asshole does – I delegated to the professionals and helpfully supervised from a discreet distance.”Crab gives you a blank look. “What.”“You heard me, I-”“Who?” “Now are you sure you're not just salty about your truck? I'm sorry about the 12 inch shell in the back. When I pulled it out, it just kind of...” you make a gesture with your hands. “Expanded.” The big man squints at you suspiciously. “Who the hell did you hand it off too? There was nobody else out there. I know. I know for a fact.” You pause awkwardly – you didn't quite think this through.>Show him.>Make something up. >Deflect. >Genuflect.
>>39678531Definitely the ice cream. Or whatever little WWII-era Japanese girls liked. Maybe a tin of hard candies, fuck I don't know.

>>39678611You're just jealous I've stuck my dick in Iowa-sempai and Missouri-chan while you're just a sad little virgin.
>>39678611It's just proof that Ikazuchi has a heart of gold, whereas all the other, older shipgirls hide the wicked sins of their pasts in their hearts!I KEEP TELLING YOU GUYS, DESDIV 6 A BEST
>>39678593>he doesn't knowkek, we fucked up>Show himThe shipgirls asked for our discretion though, lest you forget>“We'd appreciate it if you kept it quiet,” Tatsuta says. Kongou is very studiously observing the table, and Tenryuu seems to have stopped breathing. “We're not blind. We know people are... uncomfortable around us.” >“Which people?” >Tatsuta grips your arm and leans in to whisper, her breath tickling your ear. “Pretty much everyone except Goto and one or two of the maintenance people. We... we don't really know what we are, ourselves. Or what – what *they* are. Just like you wouldn't know what your kidneys are if you didn't have a doctor to tell you. All we know is, they work – and we need them.”
>>39678593>Show him.DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE.
>>39678633Oh hey a not retarded option, when did you show up?
>>39678633This... remember the suggestion not to say anything
>>39678633I would tell him that this isn't even classified. That this is something that maybe not even the brass knows.Are you sure you want to go deeper.
>>39678593>>39678633this guy's got it.
>>39678683Yeah, though of all people he probably should know. I'm surprised he doesn't know.Also that random EMT who patched up Arizona saw, and lost some SAN for his trouble.
>>39678683Oi, the maintenance people are basically their doctors. They of all people should know.
>>39678593>Show him.>>39678486>HALSEY DID NOTHING WRONG.Except not detach the task force he said he would to guard the San Bernardino Strait while he charged after delicious Nipponese bait. And then ignore Taffy 3's calls for help for two goddamn hours!
Hopefully the guy will believe it.
>>39678593>Show himDis gon be good.
>>39678633I'll second this
>>39678593>WHO DO YOU THINKI'm assuming they know.
>>39678593>Deflect."If you don't know, then you're not cleared for it."
>>39678711I am just a figment of your imagination. You're actually replying to nothing, and people are scratching their heads. There is no such thing as sense in a Planefag quest.
>>39678350Several cloaked Purifiers later?
>>39678674Don't take credit for my exploit.Fuck Obama but Hilary is worse.10/10 would recommend visiting a Iowa class fuck they are big.
>>39678648I'm not saying anon can't or won't waifu, just that there's nobody good to waifu yet. Though likely not Kaga yes. I personally want to...I dunno help Arizona somehow. We'll see where aero gay takes us.
>>39678593>Show him.It's gonna break our best EOD guy. But will we have a laugh.Nothing can go wrong.
>>39678633Sensible and less vaguely-phrased than the options, go for it
>>39678674>im-fucking-plyingNigger, I've been in the Alabama, I've been in the Drum, and the Batfish.Fuck off with your sad little fantasy, queer.>>39678676>one incident making up for the rest of the warplanefag pls no
>>39678676To be fair, Inazuma might have saved Allied sailirs as well...Then again, Nagato did ferry ALL THE SUPPLIES during the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, and then there's Hamakaze who saved tons of her own sailors...Oh, and everyone's favorite PoiPoi was probably responsible for the Americans not rescuing any Japanese sailors who were shipwrecked. Juuuuuuust a thing. Anavel Gato would NOT be proud of that.
>>39678452Probably Wo. In before the Abyssals somehow mistake Settle for one of their own.
>>39678826I'd have ordered my ship to sink her too, white flag be damned. Fuck the Japanese.
>>39678836>We get ourselves killed and unlock Abyssal Admiral routeOh god dammit image limit
>>39678773I do as well, just not in a romantic light. She seems more daughter/lil sister than romance interest... assuming her issues allow that much.Though there's 1-2 possible candiates, though that depends on them getting screen time and not getting muscled out for some super headcase bitch... along Kaga's lines.
>>39678836>Not the straya seaport girl.
>>39678766Unless it's MOA. Then it's just forty dead purifiers and four instacanes sitting in the middle of them having a giggle. Haven't seen that guy since they banned multiboxing. I think he killed himself. wheniaminspace is in a padded room somewhere, or so I hear.
>>39678870 I heard the white flag was actually a uselessly small sail the captain had rigged to improve crew morale when it was clear they were fucked and dead in the water.
>>39678593"That's classified... but you'll probably find out soon enough."
>>39678922>I heard the white flag was actually a uselessly small sail the captain had rigged to improve crew morale when it was clear they were fucked and dead in the water.Probably just a sunshade on the deck. Nobody fucking rigs a fucking sail on a fucking modern ship not even in jest
>>39678889Yuudachi was fired upon by an American captain after she had struck her colors, and he did absolutely everything right.>>39678922Good.
>>39678899>wheniaminspace is in a padded room somewhere, or so I hear.Man I remember that fucker, broski/lynch/love/pizza was some of the best time I ever had in that godforsaken icelandic hellgame
fucking image limit...New thread where?
>>39678740That was a bit of a legit mistake though. Halsey had no way of knowing the IJN had run out of trained pilots and the northern task force was just a decoy. Up until that point in the war the IGN had never attempted a major surface attack in the daylight hours, and was well known for their diversionary tactics (in fact, this lead to Halsey assuming the Center Force was a decoy itself)>>39678767I've been to the Iowa, the Missouri, and the Midway in addition to a handful of smaller ships. In the kancolle world, I'd be some sort of gigolo.
>>39678894I dunno. Currently just wanna help Arizona. If she wants to do something eventually, I wouldn't mind but I'm not going to push. Doesn't even need to be physical. Sometimes you just need somebody to be with. But we'll see, there are a bunch of girls who are going to get more screen time and we're still on like the second day.
>>39678957No joke, her CO was actually that stupid and the Americans thought it was a white flag, so they were doubly pissed when she kept firing. Then they sunk her when she actually surrendered.
>>39679030She actually has a white scarf that stands in for the sail in KanColle.
>>39678889The Japanese destroyer Yuudachi was damaged and lost engine power. The captain, being slightly mad, ordered them to hoist a honest-to-God sail and continue fighting to the last.Nearby US ships saw the sail going up and thought the Yuudachi was raising a white flag and surrendering and were pissed when she didn't do that. The US Navy tended to ignore stranded Japanese and more often than not American sailors for the rest of the war.
>>39678960He said She said, what ever happened most of the crew was rescued.They were not executed, or worked to death.THIS IS WHAT SETS US APART FROM THE JAPS.
>>39678961Pizza got the gang back together, although now they're Goon pets.
I'm just waiting for planefag to bring in the kreigsmarine. They're full of amazing ships that always sent the message "We fight to the last shell." (except the graf spee, but her decision was the right one anyways.)
>>39678992Bump limit, too.
>>39679099Yeah, we're on page 8, new thread needed soon.
>>39679057Didn't the Goons just randomly decide to go full RP a few weeks ago?
>>39679122Sort of, Mittani decided to go back to his LARPing and turned the Goons into 40k memes behind him.
>>39679088Your not wrong, there is better uses for the japs, senseless slaughter thats what the chinks are for.Lol in that battle Hiei gets fucked up by a deastroyer.
>>39676780>SHE ALMOST GOT RAPED WHILE WEARING THAT.Oh my, thanks for pointing out that a comic like that existed. How lewd.http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts?tags=pool%3A9099
>>39679193>putting words in my mouthNigger, Chinks are better than fucking Nips. Indians suck too.
>>39679054>USN purposely ignoring stranded sailorsThis is a navy that literally strung a series of submarines from the Marianas to Japan solely for the purpose of rescuing downed US fliers. They had some issues with communication (as Taffy 3 and the USS Indianapolis would find out), but they never ignored their own men.Japanese sailors, on the other hand...
>>39679226I was referring to the Indianapolis in the first place, mind.
>>39679087Except the Tirpitz, which spent most of the war hiding in a corner.
>>39679284Which is really a shame because it was bismarck's sister ship, and could have done a hell of a lot.
>>39679223Wait, are we talking red dot Indians or awoowoowoo Indians?
Despite hiding in that corner the entire British Navy was concerned with how to dig her out of there without losing a good many ships.
>>39679334You might have been talking about the many armed Indians? They cant even keep there god clean, Ganges river.
>>39679334>IndiansMotherfucker, I was referring to Native Americans, I would have said Native Americans. I'm referring to India Indians, you shit.Too bad those mighty Nips of yours attacked the most powerful nation on the face of the earth and are still feeling the repercussions today.>>39679355Red Dot Indians.
>>39679308Not really. In the long run the Bismark didn't amount to much either. She failed at her primary goal of disrupting commerce. Her defeat of the Hood, while a propaganda victory, ultimately amounted to nothing. Much like every other action taken by the kreigsmarine's surface fleet.>>39679358AKA a fleet in being. Still, hardly "fighting to the last shell"
>>39679406>Red Dot Indians.I SAID WHAT KIND THE 7-11 KIND OR THE KIND THAT GOWO-WO-WO-WO-WO-WO
>>39678593>>39678957>[x] Show him.Doctors must know how to treat their patients.
>>39679088Well aren't you one edgy little motherfucker?
>>39679308Except not really, the Royal Navy outweighed and outgunned the Kreigsmarine by a ridiculous margin for the entire length of the war.
>>39679433THE SEVEN ELEVEN KIND. YOU KNOW, THE FUCKERS THAT SHIT IN THE RIVER THEY DRINK FROM? THAT BATHE CORPSES IN THAT BITCH?Those dumbfuckers.
>>39679443ow the edge you're killing me anonProve me wrong.
>>39679444Yes, but the royal navy outweighed and outgunned everyone till the americans came along and built their pacific fleet. Germany wasn't trying to win a war on the sea, but they had some great ships.
>>39679406>>Getting madI'm just happy to find another racist.Also I think there are three people asking what type of Indians we are talking about.God damn Columbus,
>>39679088Ridire please go and stay go.
>>39679426Tirpitz is the BoogiemanLurks out of sight, and when she says "Boo", convoys scatter and die.
>>39679490The germans wasted men and metal on the surface fleet in both wars.
>>39679496I just really don't like the term Native Americans.It sounds pretentious as hell.Injun or bust.
>>39679433yo, planebitch, we almost to page 10. Tiem to change the shorts so to speak.
>>39679444Not that any of that mattered anyway. The Kreigsmarine lost half of its destroyers invading Norway. HALF. Against fucking Norway. Don't get lost in the Naziboo hype, other than it's U-boat force the Kreigsmarine was pound for pound worse than most other navies at the time.
Yo I read Shattered Sword like a month ago now and I still can barely fathom how a professional military managed to bungle something so thoroughly as the IJN did in the weeks leading up to Midway, particularly considering how stellar a job that had been doing up until that point.
>>39679496Ps intentionally brought up natives we all know they are not even people, and thus would not even be in a discussion about races.
>>39679481>spewing mindless drivel>telling others to prove you wrongYup, confirmed for turbo-edgy.The real irony is that the very things you try to take credit for exist not because of useless edgy little motherfuckers like you, but rather *despite* the waste of resources and time (and the promise of humanity) little dipshits like you are. Then again, you'd need to not be a worthless little edgemaster to recognise that.
>>39679530In the first world war it was a calculated and smart move by admiral tirpitz to create the fleet that they did. He just wanted to make it powerful enough that the british couldn't very well risk how much they'd lose in the event of a decisive engagement, even if they won.In the second world war they mostly used it to interrupt shipping, not directly engaging the obviously superior fleet. They weren't stupid, and taking out that shipping was crucial.
>>39679558Actually a lot of the damage can be laid at HMS Warspite's feet, considering she did a lot of damage during the Norway campaign, like vaporizing a German DD that dared actually get into shooting range and then it ate eight 15 inch shells.
>>39679546The Indian subcontinent can fuck off, it's our name now.
“... uhm,” you say nervously.“Yeah, that's what I thought,” Crab says as he bores in. “You're full of shit-”“Nnnnooooooooooooo,” you say cautiously. “Noooot exactly.” “Yeah? Prove it.”“About that...” you say, fidgeting nervously. “It's classified. Classified as hell. If I show you...” “What? You wanna see mine?” A smooth, icy chill spreads through you as your last fuck vanishes, gone with the wind. “Y'know what, Marine? Ask, and you shall receive. Wait here.” You stride past him, Ikazuchi hustling to keep up as you start flinging open the doors of wooden stalls that've partitioned the long factory-like building into compartments. You find Wainwright and Mogami in the third one down.“Admiral,” the doctor says placidly as you enter. “Looks like nothing's too badly out of shape. Looks like a nomral nose, too, but it's all still...” he taps Mogami's nose with his little light, and it clinks audibly. “Which is better, anyway. We'll need Crab to-”“Out,” you instruct.He shoots you a glare over his shoulder. “Admiral, I'm a doctor, and I'm not about to-”“OUT!” you snap. “Her nose isn't getting any more bent in the two minutes I need and this is classified!” He stands up slowly and plants his hands on his hips. “Maybe if you ask nicely.” You spin crisply on your heel to face the destroyer. “Ikazuchi!” “S-sir!” she says, saluting rigidly. “Detain this man and escort him five feet outside of this door. Do not let him back in!”
>>39679546Reward them with our good name, or defiles it for us. Lol ironic thats what they want to be called and it is a European name for this continent.
“S-sir, aye!” She stomps over to Wainwright and crosses her arms, looking up at the tall, lean man with a terribly adorable attempt at a tough-guy scowl. “O-okay you, I'm taking you downtown and I don't want no trabble, you hear?” Wainwright looks up at you glumly. “That's not fair.”You give him a smug grin. “Better hurry up. I'm sure there's a few ladders around here.” He sighs with defeat, allowing Ikazuchi to lead him out by one wrist. You close the door behind him, and glance back at Mogami, who's still covering her nose and looking at the floor. She seems embarrassed by it.“... television?” you say to lighten the mood. “They're letting you guys watch television?”“They let us dew whatever we wan,” Mogami confirms. “I like radio better, though.” “Ah.” Mogami's seated in an uncomfortable-looking metal stool. You place a hand on her shoulder and lean over to whisper in her ear, mindful of the thin wooden partition's walls. “Mogami-”“-w-wh-w-wha-”“If you're still... metal... I'm guessing your, uh, damage control team is still, uh-”“Y-you you k-now-”“Yes, I met Arizona's chief engineer last night... I think,” you murmur into her ear. “I need to ask you for a big favor.”The air near your cheek seems to heat up a few degrees – quite literally. “Whwwhwhwwaaaa-” “I need to borrow your DC officer for a minute.”
>>39679580>don't like someone's opinions>better call them edgy and a waste of resourcesProtip: One of the American commanders vowed that Japanese would only be spoken in Hell. If that's not edgy, what is, faggot?
>>39679604How many submarines could they have made with that much metal. What did it ever do? It did nothing of worthy of its cost.
A few seconds later, you walk out of the little room with a new friend, Mogami blushing furiously as she turns her chair to face the corner. Seems all the jokes about ships being crammed “full of men” take on a new dimension when the ships are actually flesh and... steel. Or something. Whatever. The important thing is Crab's dubious expression when you come strolling into his presence again looking rather smug. “So as I was saying,” you reply, “I handed off the task to Arizona's own repair teams.” Crab snorts. “I just fucking told you how manpower-short we are. I know literally everyone who works on them. Stop trying to fade me, clown.” Fade me, clown. Nice one. You file that away for later; Hate ought to love it. “No, seriously. You always defer to the ship's own damage-control officer. They're highly-trained specialists – especially the Japanese ones, you know.” It's technically true – the IJN treated DC as a specialty that was handled only by special, select teams. In retrospect it was a rather poor approach, but it doesn't change the pride those officers took in their role.And it's also *sublime* bait. Crab snorts rudely, flapping his hand as he wafts away the stench of your moronic ideas. “Oh that's freaking rich. You deferred to Imperial Japanese damage control? A spread of torpedoes to scuttle a burnt-out carrier isn't 'damage control,' retard. If they're an immune system, those IJN girls out to be kept in hamster balls.”
>>39679684The submarines got very few confirmed ship kills, and most of them were with the deck gun, not torpedoes. The Graf Spee did a lot of major hauling when it came to taking down shipping in the Indian Ocean and South Atlantic.
You feel an agitated thrashing beginning in your hair as the spirit of what is possibly the only competent damage control officer in the entire Imperial Navy is roused to battle. You reach up, pinch the brim of your uniform hat 'twixt thumb and forefinger, and politely flip it up, unleashing a torrent of angry high-pitched noises that have the shape of speech, if not any decipherable detail. The torrent of tinny wrath carries clear across the room as Crab's face drains of blood, his eyes widening in absolute, disbelieving shock as the little creature on your skull begins an angry dance, his violent and undeniably rude gesticulations making him shift his footing. If you could see his little oversized face (thank god thank Jesus you can't you can't don't even imagine but you can imagine so easy oh GOD-) it'd probably be flushed with rage right now. After a minute or two of this, you lower your hat onto your head again, the tinny wrath muffled, but not quelled by the fabric. “Wh-what the fu-” “Are you satisfied?” Crab reels against the shelving rack behind him, the odds and ends rattling as his knees waver and threaten to go out. “That's a, that's a fucking trick-” You move to lift your hat off again, and he jerks violently. “NO! NO! WHATEVER YOU SAY, JUST GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE, SHIT!” He slaps his welding mask down over his face again, just in case you make good on your silent threat. You spin smartly on one heel and military quick-march into the hallway between the partitions. Removing your hat, you allow Mogami to scoop up her minute crewman and hustle out to see Crab for treatment. And that's when you finally begin to laugh.
>>39679688 Oh shit.
>>39679688>A spread of torpedoes to scuttle a burnt-out carrier isn't 'damage control,' retardSHOTS FIRED
>>39679684WWI submarines were kind of shit, and largely non-existent at the time the Hochseeflotte began construction.Also Billy wanted a big ship fleet and it was easier to give him what he wanted on a technicality rather than try to oppose him directly.
>>39679670>be an edgy motherfucker>be called out on it>cry and moanProtip: Nobody gives a shit about your edgelord bullshit except you.Proest tip: Stop trying to compare yourself to actual historical figures. It's not impressive, it's just pathetic.
>>39679684I looked this up. The entire German surface fleet was built to challenge the French navy at sea. To be blunt, the Germans never, ever expected to roll up the army that had held them at bay for 4 goddamn years in WWI in only six weeks.
>>39679668>“I need to borrow your DC officer for a minute.”>>39679688>And it's also *sublime* bait>>39679714God damn image limit this is fucking beautiful
>>39679684>What did it ever do? It did nothing of worthy of its cost.First world war it Shut down the Russian Baltic fleet and enabled the German Army to make huge gains along the Baltic coast through it's support.It also made the massive amphibious landings Fisher wanted functionally impossible thanks to being a sufficient fleet-in-being to keep the RN at bay.Plus, they gave better than they got in their single major action with the RN, which counts for quite a bit.
>>39679688>A spread of torpedoes to scuttle a burnt-out carrier isn't 'damage control,' retard.TORPEDOES IN THE WATER, CAPTAIN
>>39679604The German surface fleet never engaged in commerce raiding on a large scale. Norway cost them 10 destroyers, 2 light cruiser, and a heavy cruiser. That's over a 3rd of their navy in less than 2 months. After that the Brits put up a blockade. The Bismark tried to break out and was destroyed. After that the Tirpitz ran and hid in the fjords for the rest of the war.
>>39679731too bad macarthur was a huge shit too, anon.You still haven't proven what Japan's good for other than being absolute shit and a base for US forces.
>>39679688>A spread of torpedoes to scuttle a burnt-out carrier isn't 'damage control,' retard.Dayum son>>39679714Glorious>tfw I can't post the Kitakami slightly lewd fairies image.
>>39679736Exactly, so they were forced to go head on with the british navy when france fell. (and the british navy attacked the french navy because reasons)
I'm calling the thread here for tonight because of the image limit and rampant funposting and because tomorrow is Friday night, which is a MUCH better night for running two threads/till 2 in the goddamned morning! So that's 3 threads. Which is better than two. BE THERE OR BE SQUARE
>>39679791>Planefag promising more threadsGoing to be a month-long wait then, I guess.
>>39679791God dammit planefag I'm busy tomorrow nightStill, beautiful thread
>>39679764Admittedly, yes, but a lot of the remaining ships were sent to the Atlantic to stop american supplies reaching Britain.
>>39679714>You feel an agitated thrashing beginning in your hair as the spirit of what is possibly the only competent damage control officer in the entire Imperial Navy is roused to battle. You reach up, pinch the brim of your uniform hat 'twixt thumb and forefinger, and politely flip it up, unleashing a torrent of angry high-pitched noises that have the shape of speech, if not any decipherable detail.Oh god, my sides.
>>39679764If they had scraped the fleet and put all that effort in to land based bombers maybe they would have come out better. Don't need a aircraft carrier when you can use land.
>>39679791Aye aye capten.
>>39679791I hope I don't have to work for the next two days.Thanks for the fun, boss.
>>39679791Thanks planefag. I'll be on your ass tomorrow if we don't get two. You can interpret that however you like
Though now I'm wondering if like, a hatch opened up on her arm or something
>>39679767Yeah fuck mcarther.I only mentioned Senseless violence.

>>39679876>Tomorrow? PF, have you checked a calendar lately? Do you know what comes out tomorrow?... I don't, actually. What comes out tomorrow?
>>39679767Well okay, you're right in that regard. He was almost as much of an edgy shit as you.>provenYour own posts prove plenty enough just how much of a shitty edgelord you are.And if you wanna go down that road, how yabout you prove that you are good for anything at fucking all. Because right now, all you've provven is that you're a dumbass little child spewing edgy shit - which by extension makes the average Japanese (or Chinese or Nigerian or whereeverthefuckelseian) a whole lot more valuable a person than you are.

>>39679894>three hoursAren't you optimistic? I'm expecting giant crowds.
>>39679927In a planefag thread?You'll miss maybe miss a story post, sandwiched between generous mounds of funposting
>>39679840>Don't need a aircraft carrier when you can use land.That was the Italian take on Naval Aviation.Wasn't a real good idea in practice.

You can go home now, Japanese Internet Defense Force. That half a yen you're getting paid per post isn't worth the cowshit on my boot.>>39679961>implying Americans aren't the vast, vast majority of planefag's readership
>>39680003Given that the IRC channel dedicated to alternately fellating and tormenting planefag is a good 50% non-US... Yeah, i'm implying that.
>>39679822They ended up sending exactly sending their entire navy south after Britan threatened to invade Norway. The Gneisenau was so hevily damaged during the rest of the transfer she was declared a loss. The Scharnhorst attempted to attack a convoy, but was sunk before ever seeing a commercial vessel. After that the Prinz Eugen and the rest of the German fleet spent the war in harbor. Just face it, the Kreigsmarine surface fleet was a huge waste and accomplished nothing but making a few good propaganda movies.

>>39679714>the only competent damage control officer in the entire Imperial Navy Masayushi Saruwatari, the guy who made the call to dump the torps and ammo after the collision? Oh yeah.Good run PF, see you tomorrow fag
>>39680044Alright, but the Graf Spee still had one hell of a run until it got stuck in montevideo after the commander got a bit ambitious. It makes me wonder why it was never Kancolle'd. Look it up. not a single picture of a humanized Graf Spee anywhere on the internet. And I spent hours searching. She needs some love.
>>39680256Answer is always, "The Japs have bad taste."
>>39680203That does raise a question, are the fairies the actual reincarnated 'spirits' of the men who once served in those positions, or are they merely the anthropomorphic personification of the post itself? I'm inclined towards the later.
>>39680044>>39680044Just face it, they weren't as hilariously incompetent as you'd like to pretend and you're intensely butthurt over it.
>>39680161Fun fact, after British defeat at the second battle of the Java Sea the RN evacuated all of its forces to the east coast of Africa until mid 1944, despite the fact that fact that the Japanese never entered the Indian ocean after early 1942.
>>39676780>SHE ALMOST GOT RAPED WHILE WEARING THAT.I'm not sure it was rape that was about to occur, strictly speaking.
>>39680282I think the russians are mocking them for that, have you seen the jap tech tree in world of warships? It's a mess of 1910s and 1920s designs that weren't nearly as good as plenty of other ships they had. Even the freaking amagi class is tier 8, and they're facing things like the Iowa (yes, the BB-61 Iowa every keeps thinking of.) And only one of them did anything in world war II. As an aircraft carrier.
>>39675529What is happening in this picture? Can a boat actually tow a blimp?
>>39680310The latter seems more likely, yeah. Especially since they can replenish via... however the fuck resupply works, we still haven't asked yet
>>39680402I'm guessing it's a tender for the Akron or Macon, can't tell them apart.
>>39680392I'm not in the Beta, so I'm not up on it. Also, BB-61 should shit on most everything, so that's not a fair comparison.
>>39680436Technically the American BBs haven't come out yet, but all of them outclass their jap counterparts by far in terms of modernization. The jap carriers (which are coming out at the same time as U.S. BBs) had to be buffed far beyond historical ability to actually compete with the U.S. Carriers. Hell, the japanese tier 10 carrier is a paper ship, and most of the Pearl Harbor task force is missing. Also the Yamato's armor isn't correctly modeled so it gets wrecked every time. Their destroyers also lose horribly to any american destroyer of the same tier. They have the bloody kagero against the fletcher.
>>39680552Which you know, is mostly historically accurate. Not completely of course, but America didn't just win because they were Murica Stronk!It's just shit balance for a naval game.
>>39680316The Kreigsmarine entered the war underfunded, underequipped and understaffed. Most of their ships were outdated, despite being brand new. They had one or two successes against the RN, namely sinking the Hood and the voyages of the Admiral Graf Spee and Admiral Scheer, but they were never able to even come close to standing up to the full might of the RN.
>>39680622>Jap Destroyers worse than US Destroyers>At any point that isn't '44 or later>Historically accurateu wot m8?
>>39680049I literally worked in a theater with assigned seating in our IMAX theaters.
>>39680428Nope, that's the USS Los Angeles (what is it with us and LA today?) The Akron or Macon would be significantly bigger than that.
>>39680637And? Doesn't change the fact that you're assblasted.
>>39680655>implyingGoing to need some citation on that.
>>39680655I was talking about the carriers and BB's, not the DD's. Which is why I said "mostly" historically accurate.
>>39680655At the ranges you fight, american DDs have a massive advantage with guns, and save for the shimakaze, a better torp armament for engaging DDs. They're practically built to tear apart Jap DDs.
Ooi and Kitakami tomorrow.
>>39680680At a quick glance? Osprey's recent "IJN Destroyer versus USN Destroyer" publication will suffice to give an overview of the difference for you..That said pretty much any academically rigorous literature that compares the two puts the IJN DDs at distinct advantage until the US finally got it's shit together at the end of '43.
>>39680688Then specify. Otherwise you sound like a knob.
>>39680622>It's just shit balance for a _____ game.Sums up the World of ____ and Warthunder makers perfectly.
>>39680765I'm sorry, I'll remember to cite my sources next time.
>>39680678Naziboo annoys me. There's a reason Germany lost the war, and it wasn't just lack of numbers. There were severe mistakes made at virtually every level of their leadership, and technologically they were far behind the allies virtually every step of the way. The only thing that kept Nazi Germany running for as long as it did was sheer batshit insanity.
>>39680637They pulled of the channel dash, too- though to no strategic gain, and mostly because the RAF and RN had a command structure (and standing SOP) that prevented any kind of quick, effective response.
>>39680882>and technologically they were far behind the allies virtually every step of the wayhaha good 1 m8
>>39680882>far behind the allies virtually every step of the way.Hey now, they had far superior üntermenschen removal techniques.
>>39680913Even that was a major mistake. Hitler believed the Allies were close to invading Norway, and wanted to pull his ships to safety. In reality the signs of a Norway invasion were part of an allied deception to cover up preparations for the d-day landings. By moving the high seas fleet south they were unable to attack the vulnerable arctic convoys. The Scharnhorst was destroyed on it's first attempted foray and the fleet spent the rest of the war hiding in port.

>>39680938No, really. The Bf-109 was already outdated by 1940, although still potent. As time went on and the Germans refused to update its design, this flaw was thrown into sharper and relief. Of the so called "wonder weapons" only the Me-262 reached the front lines in any numbers, and in many ways it was technologically inferior to the Meteor. The Germans were never able to produce a 4 engine heavy bomber whatsoever, which would come back to bite them in the battle of Britain. German Panzers were actually inferior to french tanks, the French were just unable to use them effectively. German ships, as I've already mentioned, were brand new and yet already outdated by their WW1 era designs. The main asset Germany processed was audacity, the ability to try things no one else could expect. But after 2 years of war the allies had learned most of their tricks and defeat was inevitable.
>>39681210Focus, control, conviction, resolve
>>39681047Oh yeah, no, I know. It served little purpose except put a great deal of strain on the already brittle Luftwaffe fighter force, and deliver a jab to the RN and RAF- it was unthinkable a hostile naval force could clear the straits of dover like that.
>>39681254Until the IS came out, the Tiger I was far superior to any russian vehicles, and the british and americans never made anything that could really contest it until late in the war. The only problem was that it was never produced in the same numbers as the allied vehicles and just could not be replaced as well. The King tiger and Jagdtiger were both very good as well, but came in too little too late. As for the StuG, Pz III, and Pz IV, they were all updated as the war went on, but only to the point where they could match the allies, and again, were not produced to the same ridiculous degree.
>>39681254>German Panzers were actually inferior to french tanks, the French were just unable to use them effectively.Only on pure paper stats. A Deeper look shows horrid flaws in the internal design of French tanks if the era, even the vaunted S35, which basically precluded them from realistically being used to the extent their paper capabilitues would imply.For a brief primer, Osprey's 'S35 vs Panzer III 1940' sums it up rather well.
>>39681416Tactically, yes. But strategically they were utter failures. The Tiger was built on an overburdened drivetrain, which cause it constant breakdowns. It was way too expensive to produce for its capabilities as well.
>>39681254>The Bf-109 was already outdated by 1940you are fucking retarded
>>39681551It was a maintenance-needy vehicle, but it had some incredibly good repair crews if all the reports I've seen are to be believed, and its handling was absolutely fantastic. Experienced crews could very well keep it from needing those repairs. It was still undoubtedly very expensive to produce.
>>39681575The 109 was the first all metal monoplane fighter accepted into service anywhere in the world. It was difficult to handle, had poor visibility from the cockpit, and an extremely short range. By 1940 these issues were beginning to show during the battle of Britain.
>>39681625If a vehicle requires a matinence miracle just to get into action, that's poor design. Large numbers of Tigers had to be left on the battlefield after every retreat, often with simple issues that could be easily fixed in the field by an American or Russian crew.
>>39681856On the retreat, germans didn't have a chance to retrieve their damaged vehicles, and they easily could have repaired the vehicles if they had luxury of retrieval. Unfortunately, the constant retreat prevented that. The supply lines were just stretched too thin for them to attempt to get back on the attack, and as the war progressed, the well trained and organized wehrmacht lost most of its experienced members, leaving only the failures that people seem to remember it as.
>>39681551The Tiger had an operational readiness ratio equal to or within five percent of the Panzer IV throughout 1943 and 44.It's mechanical issues are blown grossly out of proportion.
>>39681781All problems suffered by it's contemporaries.You'll note that when Hurricanes and Spits undertook offensive sweeps over axis or occupid territory, they ran into the same range- and time over target issues the 109s had over Britain.
>>39681955On the contrary people seem to remember them as running a very successful defense, which is only partially true. Overall the German's primary strength was in their army. It was reasonably well run and well equipped, but outnumbered and suffering from Hitler's poor strategic leadership. Germany started the war with early to mid 1930s era vehicles, and was never able to muster the industrial might to replace them wholly with new designs. Allied designs were 5-10 years newer on average. Not a big gap, bit it was enough to make a difference.
