>repost follwed by new content: read all of it. >See map: return coffee/tea party is at the docks at "4," base theater is at "8."“Have the planes shadow them,” you order. “Don't get too low and don't let them spot you; they might split up and they carry a shitload of light AA.” You round up your posse and dash to the jeep, where a brief struggle for seating arrangements ensues. Hamp has the driver's seat, which promps Hate to move towards the passenger seat you're already occupying. He eyes you warily, then jumps in the back where he wedges himself between Ise and Hyuuga, where he looks fairly happy. Kitakami eyeballs the crowded backseat dully, then slides her dark eyes to you, where Arizona is plopping down in your lap. “I liked it better,” she mutters, “when it was abstract.” She piles in, kneeling just behind the front seats, giving her a good view forward over the shifter. “Isn't this vehicle a bit crowded?” “Oh I'm *so* sorry,” Hamp rejoins instantly. “You want us to swing by the fucking motor pool and borrow a tour bus? With seperate powder rooms for men and women?” He revs the engine with a scream and pops the clutch, flinging the vehicle around the first curve. He angles due south, gunning it for all its worth towards a narrow alleyway. Ise and Hyuuga's eyes are widening terribly in the rear-view mirror. “Mabye we don't *all* have to go?” Kitakami observes cooly as the two BBVs begin to hyperventilate. Hamp thunders down the narrow alleyway with inches to spare on both sides, then wrenches the wheel violently as soon as he's cleared the bottleneck, tires squealing for purchase. A long line of pallets lies before you, loaded with what you recognize as the first-stage booster of the SM-2 ER being moved into the assembly building. From the way Arizona's ass is clenching on your lap, she's recognized them too.
“Why not?” Hamp replies. “You heard the girls. My planes don't have *offensive capability.*” He begins slaloming around the crates as hard-hatted dockworkers scream and dive left and right. “But if we're arresting those dogs,” Kitakami points out, “then where are we gonna put them?” “Oh god *dammit,*” Hamp snarls as a rough-terrain forklift looms from a side-street, blocking the entrance to the main road from the loading docks. “You just have ALL the comebacks, don't you?” He wrenches the wheel violently and the jeep climbs the angled concrete divider seperating one loading dock from the next like a ramp, the machine's brush-plate protecting the axle as it slides precariously up. Hamp shifts his weight to one side to keep the balance until the front tires manage to catch the concrete lip, and then he's spinning the wheel left and right, somehow walking the goddamn Jeep sideways through a loading door. You're about to scream for him to aboard when you see that the muntiions building must be the one opposite; this is a large, open warehouse for large-scale fabrication. Hamp floors the throttle and ratchets the jeep into third as he goes weaving through the many obstructions. Before him looms a huge, squarish structure - it looks like a new section of superstructure being built for a chop-and-extend job, sans the actual hull below the waterline. Japanese dockworkers go scrambling away in a swarm of bobbing hardhats as Hamp drifts the jeep around a steel support pillar to clear a tricky angle between a massive marine diesel motor still dripping packing grease and what looks like a damaged deck crane.

>>42874535SPOOKY, SCARY SHIIIIP-SLUTS SEND SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE!
“WHAT ARE YOU TYRING TO DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-” Ise squeals as she clings for dear life against centrifugal forces. “JUST TRYING TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE PT BOATS, MISS!” Hamp replies as he finally finds a clear lane - the spaces on each side of the big hull section, left open for transport and access. “HI HO SILVER - AWAAAAAAY!” The tires screech as he floors it down the straightaway. You have a brief glimpse of someone in a dress similar to Akagi's toppling into the superstructure section as if fainting, and then there's the WHUMP and crunch of splintering scaffolding. You emerge into glorious daylight again with a Japanese contractor riding the hood, his face pressed against the windshield. He picks you out to make eye contact with past Arizona's side - considering his other options, you can't blame him. Between his grizzled stubble, youth, and yakuza tattoo exposed by a stained tank-top you peg him as a welder, a rough-and-tumble kind, but right now his eyes seek only reassurance that this all makes some sort of sense, somehow. You shrug your shoulders and give him a sad shake of the head, sharing a moment of true empathy for this poor bastard. If he only knew. If he only *knew.* “Hamp?” “Yeah? Kind busy here.” You point to the man squashed against the windshield. Hamp glances over and presses the quick-wash button, spraying the dockworker down and whapping his face with the wiper blades. “HAMP!” “FINE!” With a long, deliberate squeal of the brakes Hamp accelerates with precision. Inertia slides the poor man further down the hood, his confused eyes turning to track your sympathetic face as his cheek squeaks down the wet glass like a squeegee. At last Hamp slams on the e-brake, the worker's remaining inertia just enough to deposit him on the grassy shoulder next to the narrow access road. “THERE!” He takes off again with a loud squeal.
“Sitrep,” Hamp says confidently. “Seems they've entered a building.”“Shit,” Hate snaps. “It's gonna be hell getting them out of there. Where are they?”“A... big building? Some kind of billboard on the front with letters?”You rub your head. “Fuck. What's over there, Hate?”“Afloat Training Group?” Hate guesses. “Or most of their classrooms and-”“The theater,” you reply.“Fuck.”“Ayep.”Hamp brings the Jeep to a stop outside the base's movie theater; the best place to watch movies you got on DVD-R in an envelope from home three months ago during port call in Signapore. You all disembark without trouble (aside from Hate's exaggerated eyewaggle as Arizona decamps from your lap) and stand before the glass doors, unsure what to do next. Just above the marquee sign you see the many wee floatplanes holding a stable orbit. “Got your woooden leg?” Hate asks as he hands you your cane. “Didn't know you liked ebony,” you reply as you accept it.“I bought it for you.” “Right before you did everything possible to make me beat you with it, or break it off in your ass,” you point out. “Just get it off your chest, Hate.”“Okay,” he says, thumping his ribs and clearing his throat. “Dear Skipper - go climb a wall of dicks.” “So I can unfurl your mainsail?” “Run backwards through a FIELD of dicks.”“So you want to run to meet me in a verdant field,” you say, “except backwards to meet my meat.” “What are they talking about?” Ise asks. “I think it's an analogy,” Hyuuga whispers back, a decibel or two over what anyone would consider a stage whisper. “About what?”“I'll know when they mention the four seasons.”
Kitakami rolls her eyes at the amateurs, confident in her original diagnosis as she leads the way, pushing through the glass doors into the lovely A/C of the theater. You duck into two small theaters and find nothing, then converge on the big one. “What's showing in there?” Ise wonders.“SHARP,” Hate mutters. “Always with the fucking SHARP.” He slips through the double doors first. The theater is filled with the unmistakable rustling of bored young men shifting around a lot; and the show on-screen is indeed SHARP. You begin scanning the dark room, searching for your culprits, when a familiar voice draws your eyes back to the screen in a snap. “Going somewhere, sailor?” You gape at the screen as Naka gazes out at you, her dark eyes limpid and clear with affection, lips pursed ever so slightly in silent promise. She crosses her legs sloooowly, letting her black stockings fwwwwip over each other with sensuous promise. The room itself is struck dumb - not a chair squeaks, vent rattles or occupant breathes. On-screen Naka leans back ever-so-slightly, arching her back just enough to make the hoisting of her modest breasts evident under the orange uniform. Her lidded eyes lower duskily as the tip of her tongue moistens her lips. “C'mere, hon. Let's see if you're better than your sister.”
>>42874552FIRST FOR FAIRIES FIRST TO FIGHT!
The video freezes, showcasing the insane giggly grin in the act of exploding across Naka's face for a heartbeat before the title text comes zooming in with an effect worthy of 90s editing software: “SEXUAL HARRASMENT AND RAPE PREVENTION: FOR PERSONNEL NEAR OR AROUND SHIPGIRLS.” To its credit, it's the first SHARP video you've ever seen that actually snagged a room's attention for even this long. Everyone in the theater stands stock-still, holding their breath. “Shipgirls are miracles, returned from the deeps to serve our nations and peoples once more,” the Announcer Guy voice intoned. “But they are also individuals who are struggling to adjust to modern society.” An image of Akagi and Shoukaku flash on screen, wearing their old-fahsioned clothing and drawing their old-fashioned bows in the old-fashioned style, then cuts to an image of them both exploring the claw-catcher machine inside the entrance of the main PX as Akagi pokes the joystick curiously. “Many of them have old-fashioned social mores - such as young, unmarried women being privileged to not suffer the attention of single males talking to her without the permission - and presence - of her family. The traditional punishment for breaking this taboo was an unusually swift NJP.” The video cuts to Shoukaku making plaintive gestures as Zuikaku chases an unknown marine around a room with a bokken in her hands and wild glee in her eyes. “Others are less reserved.” The camera cuts to - - you blink, and rub your eyes. It appears to be a stripper in shipgirl-themed outfit wearing high-heels styled as rudders. She flips her blonde hair over her shoulder and waves at the camera.
“But don't be fooled - they're warships, not oilers! Dip your wick in that and you might never get it back!” The girl on-screen is sliding a carrot into her mouth wetly. She seems to pause, glances aside at something off-frame, and promptly bites the carrot off and gives the camera a 'scary look.' “Keep the following in mind whenever you are around, or working with shipgirls:-” Hate nudges your elbow, and points past the very bottom row. With your eyes adjusting to the dark interior, you can just make out five tiny heads in the glow of the big screen, their noses tracking to and fro as they watch the video intently. Got'em. “Ise, Hyuuga,” you say quietly. “Pop outside and circle around to cover the rear emergency exit doors.”“How will we know which ones they are?” Ise asks.“They probably say 'exit' over them,” Hyuuga points out.“But they'll be in English!” Ise objects.You hear Hyuuga take in a breath before thinking better of it. She simply takes her sibling by the wrist and leads her outside to execute a flanking maneuver. “Okay,” you whisper. “Hamp, Kitakami, slide the right wall. Hate, you're with me on the left. Arizona, hang back and cover the entrance. Slow and easy, now.” Hamp and Kitakami slink away in the gloom as you and Hate start down the steps slowly.“Slide the wall?” Hate whispers. “Have you *ever* gotten laid?” “Says the guy who got the reference.” A few sailors near the edge turn to see who's talking, spot your conspicuous white jacket and cover and quickly regain interest in the screen again.

“Just because you watch anime doesn't mean you wallpaper your room with Evangelion posters, asshole. How the hell do you have everyone gunning for your dick?” “You might *think* that destroyer girl looks innocent and adorable,” the Announcer Voice intones seriously as Akatsuiki appears on-screen, striking her patented Cool Lady pose. “But it's the shipgirl you *don't* see that will get you!” The screen pulls back to show two submarine girls in their bathing suits popping out of the bushes with horse masks on. The screen flickers, and they're maskless, their smoldering eyes sizing up the camera - or the man behind it - as knowing, satisfied smiles grow on their lips. A frame later, the masks are back on. “They are clever girls, built and trained for offensive operations - the difference between a 1940s warship and a 2020s warfighter means nothing to them!”You jab a finger at the screen a few times. Hate rolls his eyes, still crouch-walking down the stairs behind you. “Keep the following in mind,” the Voice continues. “Always keep high situational awareness of your personal space, workplace and battlespace when in Shipgirl Operating Zones! Use the Buddy System. Never be without your Emergency Alert Whistle!”
>>42874677He's finally been unbanned from tournamentsIt begins
>>42874647The only blonde German shipgirl is Bismarck and she isn't dressed like a stripper.
You turn back to Hate and jerk a thumb at the screen as you tilt your head quizzically. He nods, his disconcerted expression clear in the screen's glow as he verifies that this is, in fact, happening. At the base of the screen, you see five little pairs of triangular ears tracking to and fro as the dogs watch the video intently. “All enlisted personnel regularly serving in Shipgirl Operating Zones are required to carry a sidearm at all times.” A murmur of grumbly anger drifts through the room. “Authorized firearms are M4 carbines, M9 pistols-” a susurration of relieved sighs - “and personal firearms as authorized by your Armory Chief.” The video cuts to a grizzled looking Chief opening a box, lighting his weathered mug in a reflected golden sheen. His face does a passable imitation of the sea as a nasty squall is forming. “Specialty frangible ammunition will be issued to you which functions as non-lethal rounds against shipgirls and level II body armor. Loading *any other* kind of ammunition is strictly prohibited.” A quiet chuckle goes through the room. “Regular inspections of personnel arms will be carried out to ensure compliance.” A bigger chuckle, almost laughter. “Violators will be immediately re-assigned to Twenty-Nine Palms for the duration of their obligation.” The chuckles stop. “Personnel must qualify as 'Expert' in their selected sidearm before allowed to work regularly in Shipgirl Operating Zones, or be assigned to work details with at least three other qualified and carrying personnel.”

You ease down the last few steps - you can actually see the corgi's outlines now, plopped on their haunches, noses in the air as they watch intently. On the other side of the room, you see Hamp and Kitakami creeping up, well-hidden by their darker attire. You hold up your fist in a “stop” signal, then glance over your shoulder at Hate before holding up one finger and flicking a fingergun forward in a “go” signal. He gives you a long, sad look, then shakes his head slowly. You grab the lapel of his ACU's and pull him forward, then shove him towards the Corgis. This translates well enough - he takes point as you try to crouchwalk behind him, mindful of your white uniform. “-attempt to intervene in anything you might classify as barracks rough-housing,” the voice is saying, the screen cutting to a shot of Tatsuta with Tenryuu in a headlock, calmly giving her a noogie as Tenryuu flails and struggles helplessly. A big red X begins blinking over the image. “ONLY act if a human life is in immediate physical danger.” The screen switches to a shot of Goto atop a flag pole outside the administration building, stuck like a treed bear. He begins to sink, and the camera pulls back to show Kongou industriously bending the aluminum flagpole in half around head-height. A big green check-mark starts flashing over the image. “The only exception is destroyer-class shipgirls in danger of immediate physical or mental harm. Do NOT attempt open-hand restraint techniques in situations like these.” The camera cuts to a shot of Shigure in her tree, clearly filmed without her knowledge. One slender arm's wrapped around the trunk while the other wipes at her eyes miserably, her mouth wavy, but glued shut. Below is Iku, looking around with a puzzled and slightly crestfallen expression.

The corgis immediately stiffen, hopping up on their feet, low growls starting in their throats.“Follow the quick-response checklist,” the Voice drones on. “One. Issue verbal cease-and-desist commands in a loud, clear voice and fire warning shots in the air to attract help. Two. Radio for immediate backup. Three-” The corgis go *apeshit,* leaping off the floor as they erupt into loud, furious barking, their furry little bodies springing clear over the heads of the sailors in the front row. Hamp is in mid-air when his quarry leaps clear over him. He lands with an OOF and the dog lands upon his back before leaping airborne again, his little Outfit still manifested and already spraying miniscule .50 cal and 40mm shells at the screen. The tinny sound of the guns firing is drowned out by supersonic cracks of full-sized shells punching through the screen and slamming into the theater's outer brick wall behind. That's about when all hell breaks loose. The theater erupts in shouts, bellows and a few decidedly unmanly shrieks as a hundred sailors try to spring out of their seats at the same time. You charge in after Hate in a desperate bid to snag the little bastards out of the air, but with their Outfits manifested their mass is significant; you snag one's collar only to feel the cheap plastic clasp snap as it bolts past you; it felt like trying to stop a 12-pound bowling ball with a loop of string. The corgis hit the emergency doors like little cannonballs, punching small, neat dog-shaped holes in them as they smash clean through. You and Hate hit the door at the same time, your combined weight defeating the warped frame and spilling you out into the alleyway. The corgis are staring at the rear wall of the theater, as if baffled that Shigure isn't emerging from it.

“YOU!” comes Ise's voice ringing down the brick walls of the alley. “SURRENDER, YANKEE DOGS!”The five corgis turn to see Ise standing wide, blocking the narrow exit to the street. She thrusts her hand forth as her Outfit shimmers into being about her in a haze of purple light, her eyes aglow with determination. “It's over, mongrels! Against the finest of the Fuso class, in this narrow shooting gallery you have no chaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH-” she shrieks as the corgis *blur* towards her, their snarly little replies magnified tenfold by the echos. You and Hate are already on your feet, Hamp and Kitakami right behind you. Ise manages to get halfway to the exit before the corgis launch their fish, the little projectiles hitting the asphalt with loud CLANGS, skittering and sliding around uselessly. Ise manages to trip in a pothole just short of the street, going down on her considerable bosom with a thud as the corgis steamroll right over her and into the street. “DOUBLETIME,” Hate yells raggedly, encouraging you to hop right over Ise as you strain to keep eyes on the dogs. They hook south, cross the main road and angle straight for the docks, sprinting down the closest pier. If they reach open water you might never catch them. Hate is pulling ahead, his legs pumping in short, quick steps as he sprints like an athlete, easily outdistancing you and your gimp leg. He's just about to latch onto the tail of tail-end-charlie when the dogs buttonhook after their squadron leader. Hate leans into a hasty turn, but the dogs manage to keep a hairs breadth ahead of them as they make a perfect line turn and bolt for the only available escape - a gangplank. The man on deck has enough time to yelp before the dogs hit him like a freight train, bowling him over with the impact. He's just flailing his way upright when Hate charges over him, flattening him to the deckplates again. From within the ship, an alarm starts hooting.

>>42874923Technically, no - Ise and Hyuuga were the third and fourth ships of the Fuso class. In effect, so many flaws discovered in the first two ships were corrected that Ise and Hyuuga were really their own class. Still, kinship wise, and in name, Ise and Hyuuga consider themselves "Fusos," and would never insult their beloved sempais by implying that their elders are inferior. It's a Japanese thing.Unfortunately for Ise, she doesn't know why the Corgis went after Shigure - they were boats from Surigao Strait. So a Fuso-class lookalike in an alleyway... yeaaaah.

>>42875474It's so that when you get done 'training' to go to the fucking sandbox, when you fucking get there you're like "Hey, this bullshit isn't as fucking bad as mojave viper, at least"
sooo are we going to get some crazy as shit prototypes like from SWQ?hell i'll even settle if settle gets a spare naval gun cane for self defense. Hate already threw an 18 incher together so a self defense stick should be doable.

>>42875388>>42875403>>42875412>>42875416>>42875417>>42875429Ah... That explains a lot, thank you.>>42875451'Marine' in the USA isn't the same thing as it used to be, iirc. Used to be that marines were specialised in boarding actions and landing operations. In the modern era however, you never see a boarding action in the old style, so while in the UK they became special forces (and still sometimes sneak onto ships) in the USA, they became the tip of the spear for most offense.If I'm right, the Marines take the ground, the Army holds it? Or something like that?
>>42875513Ah. I see.How peculiar.
Threadly reminder that this dashing young woman is STACKED.
>>42875554STACKED when, Planefaggot?
>>42875541That's the general sentiment, anyway. Marines are shock infantry: They take and deal MASSIVE DAMAGE against THE ENEMY WEAKPOINT.They also specialize in amphibious work, which, unless you own an airport in the AO, you're gonna need.
>>42875541Quite, laddie, quite.Marines are first to fight after all.Limey admiral when
>>42875451"Marine" is a holdover term for them, they aren't just naval soldiers now. Unless there's an actual reason they're called that instead of the 'good army'?
>>42875554Threadly reminder to remind aeronautical faggot to include Stackington
>>42875541More accurate to say that the Marines are a shock force with forced-entry capability (they still are *the* amphibious assault specialists); they tend to "kick in the door" so that the Army can roll through the hole they carved in the lines.
>>42875578After Souryuu and Nagato appear: NEVER.You should just make peace with it and embrace the CV or BB
>>42875451the navy has an armythe army has an airforcethe airforce has the F35why?'MERICA
>>42875609>tfw you will never a CV-2
>>42875649I'm still salty the Navy didn't just adopt navalized F-22s. The Marines and europoors can keep the F-35, though.
>>42875649The Army...doesn't really have an Air Force.Because the Air Force were fucking faggots.
>>42875652I really fucking wish Lexington was in this quest. Hornet just does not suit my BEEG AMERICAHN TEETIES carrier needs.
>>42875652I'd rather a CV-1.MILF-boats are best boats.
>>42875590How does 'First Sea Lord' sound to you? Or the Lord High Admiral?HMS Warspite shenaniganshttp://pastebin.com/ttZY8BxEIncidentally, I think there were questions being thrown around last thread regarding Prince Andrew being Lord High Admiral, rather than Prince Philip? The reason's quite simple; Prince Philip either gave up the post due to infirmity, or died of old age. Interpretation's up to whoever wants to clarify that.
>>42875697>First Sea LordI have to hand it to you Brits.That's a pretty baller title.
>>42875697You do have to give it to the British, their ranks and titles are rather amazing.
>>42875697But I follow your writeups chief!I was wondering about the admiral in direct command of Renown and Warspite.
Could always do a strawpoll for more stacked art at least. Let whichever faggot drew it (probably pixel) know we want more.
>>42875609Nor will the swayback ever show up.
planefag stop shitposting on twitter and get back to writing.
Alright so I got one: make up your shipgirl fleet. Pick one ship of each type of any nation of your choosing.Carrier, Battleship, Cruiser, Destroyer, etc
>>42875714>>42875718It helps lessen the sting of the frogs having a better navy.

>>42875744>10,000 ton treaty cruiser>not even top heavy, or wide or anything really>stacked like a battleshipInto the trash
>>42875745>Massive swordshotgunsNah fuck that, I want to hear more.
>>42875776Where did you think her swayback came from?
>>42875714It used to be 'First Lord of the Admiralty' but that title got phased out in 1964 for reasons that escape me at present. Now there's the Admiralty board, headed by the First Sea Lord, with the Lord High Admiral holding supreme command. Her Majesty DID hold that title, but passed it to Prince Philip as age took its toll. I figure by the 2020s, he's either dead or passed it on for the same reasons. He can walk for about an hour with a stick today, so... Yeah...And in response to the confusion over the fact that fairies seems to speak Japanese, even on a British ship in British waters... I don't fucking know. Arizona's fairies desu'd Settle, so I figured it was universal. Warspite's got as much clue as I do and just decides not to worry about it.Have more shipsluts. I'm not sure why they have... Yeah...
>>42875751... Well, the French always were a proud lot, with good reason.But don't despair, the Entente has held for more than a century now. Two old enemies, now steadfast allies...Wait, that also describes the French and the Germans. Or as I like to call them, the reunited Carolingian Empire.
>>42875817Why are Kongo and Nagato so stacked?I'm not complaining or anything, ofc.
>>42875817Goddamit Kongo.We really need to get you fitted for a bra.

You pause at the bottom of the gangplank to catch your breath, waiting for the others to catch up. Hamp shows up first with Kitakami in tow, both of them breathing heavily. Ise and Hyuuga catch up a minute later, and Arizona is last, adjusting her rumpled uniform a bit as she strolls in - apparently she had to shove her way past the fleeing theater denizens to reach you.“The dogs?” Hamp pants. You point at the ship looming aside the pier, an amphibious landing ship. “46” is emblazoned on her bow. “Somewhere in there, with Hate.” They take one look at it and sigh. “Ise, Hyuuga, transform and roll out or whatever the fuck you do,” you say wearily. “Guard the water side. Arizona, guard the dock.” You point at Kitakami and Hamp, your two fast cruisers. “You two - with me.” You're halfway up the gangplank when a confused looking officer appears at the top and stares dumbly at the scrambled eggs advancing towards him.“H-h-alt and b-b-e recognized!” he says. “On who's authority!?” Hamp demands. The young man draws himself up to his full height and glares down at Hamp - you recognize the youthful pride and crisp-uniformed care of a young Annapolis graduate on his first cruise. “The Officer On Deck demands that you-” A pair of brief blue streaks scream out of the blue and hit the hapless man in the shoulders, hurling him over the rail so forcefully that his nose almost skims the hull as he's flung into the drink. “Not anymore!” Hamp declares cheerfully. He sweeps past the paralyzed seaman on deck watch, casually unplugging the telephone he's holding in one shaking hand as he breezes past. “So, where do we start?” Hamp's two seaplanes return to him, orbiting his head a few feet out like wasps patrolling near their nest.[ ]The galley - they'll go for food.

>>42875234>So wouldn't there now be an alley filled with live, armed torpedoes?MAYBE.See, Mark 13s are aerial torpedoes, they are inert until they hit the water so all the PT boats had to do is roll them off the side and off they go. However the torpedoes "skittering around" suggests they were tube launched, which means they are Mark 8 torpedoes in which case the theater is fucked.See, non-aerial torpedoes are started before they launch. If the launch fails and the torpedoes don't make it into the water the motor will run until it overheats and explodes for lack of cooling water.

>>42876934I can never tell the real difference between USS North Carolina and USS Iowa, only that I think USS North Carolina has some sort of grey camouflage along the belt of both sides. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's my assumption.

>>42877036OMFG I've been here since thread zero of SWQ and I DO NOT GIVE A SHIT. So he doesn't know, big fucking deal.
>>42876780Iowa is fantastic, don't get me wrong. But she doesn't have the same character as Yamato.Yamato is the hope and pride of her nation. She's a princess with unfathomable power, who was sheltered and never allowed to serve the purpose for which she was built. When she finally sailed, it was too late and she died a tragic death by a thousand cuts she could do nothing to abate.Now she's returned and once again her nation is in desperate peril. Again she weilds power sufficient to perhaps turn the tide of the way, if applied wisely... And again she is forced to sit at anchor.Not only that, she is now a young girl. A living heart, mind and soul in soft skin and emotion. On top of the heavy burden she bears with unbelievable grace and elegance, she has to deal with the sudden adaptation of being a living, breathing human, rife with new experiences, worries, joys, connections and emotions... And yet she still carries herself with such strength. It awes me.That is why, to me, she is the best shipfu, even ahead of the grand ships of my beloved home nation.Anyway, I need to slink away to sleep. I keep closing my eyes to blink and opening hem 5 or 10 minutes later. I look forward to reading through the archives when I wake up.Try not to get anything destroyed AGAIN, folks?

>>42876879Speaking of citadels, I was rereading the first fight of the quest and, planefag has definitely come a long way in his naval knowledge. Only writing as though Ari had three turrets instead of 4, describing pre-dreads as though they were all-or-nothing armoured when Ari was one of the first ships constructed that way... ah well
>>42877039Big J earned the most decorated title after WW2. Also those bombardment missions in Korea and Vietnam.

>>42877088Yeah, that's pretty fucking close. She's frustrated at being kept back so fucking long, and how NOFUCKINGBODY would go to bat for her, but she's too fucking well-trained and nice to say a fucking thing about it. I mean, I fucking understand why Goto wouldn't but it's fucking stupid and needs to fucking end. This ain't the kind of fucking war where you can leave warfighters sitting on the bench cos you're afraid a pack of retarded fucking political extremists would try to rally around them or some dumbfuck move like that.
>>42877097Planefag is expert on, well, planes. He's knowledgeable on naval stuff, but it's not quite at the same level.
>>42877110Interesting little history from Vietnam, but I know a retired army captain that served in 'Nam, and he helped coordinate fire for the Battleship New Jersey, and quote "there was a loud crash, and a loud howl like a freight train thundering through the sky, and then shells the size of Volkswagen beetles flew to the designated hill, and sent everything on that hill screaming to hell." He would not tell me anything else about his history other than the words listed above in quotations

“The galley,” you say immediately. “They're boats... but they're also... you know, dogs.” Hamp shrugs. “If you say so, sir.” His wee Kingfishers float towards him, flaps down, and alight on his shoulders like two small fixed-wing parrots. He leads you and Kitakami through the nearest passageway and through a crowd of bleary-eyed men who just rolled out of their bunks at the sound of what you recognize as a collision klaxon. The alarm stops, followed by someone keying the 1MC. “All departments - what the hell is going on?” The bleary-eyed boys finally focus on your uniform. Instead of snapping to attention, they simply converge on you with sleepy wonder in their eyes, reaching out to feel your uniform softly.“You... you see that?” one of them asks sleepily.“I do.”“A man?”“In *white.*” “It kind of looks like oh god it's flashing, is it really flashing?” another one marvels before shaking their head. “Nope! Nope. Nope, nevermind... nope. NOOOOOOOPE!” “NOOOOOOOOOOOPE!” another one calls back. “... sorry.” You back up against the bulkhead warily as the sailors pat your uniform curiously. “But we all see him, right?”“He has to be real.”“Dude, we're on an LSD. No way.”“But we're TOUCHING him!”“Group hallucinations happen,” someone else says, their voice strained and flat. “Haven't we all seen everyone else in the department spontaneously igniting in a pillar of flames, leaving only a pristine engine room scoured clean of all you dumbfucks?” An awkward silence.“... I have!” “Fuck you, dumbfuck.”
>>42877181http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1870603She did get a refit. And it included torpedo blisters.
>These traitors preferring Yamato over IowaTWO NUKES WASN'T ENOUGH.
Kitakami is watching with thumb and forefinger cradling her chin as she scrutinizes the proceedings carefully. She tilts her head slightly, thinking. “Yaoi,” she decides with a nod. The watch's worth of sailors turns their bleary gazes upon Kitakami and stare dumbfounded.“Short....” one says.“Shiny... black... hair...” says a second.“Braids...” a third adds, his voice on the edge of breaking.“Cute,” they all murmur together. “So... cute...” A collective sigh goes through the group as they break up, drifting back towards their bunks, heads hanging with sad realization. One of them pats you on the shoulder companionably. “Goodbye, hallucination~”
>>42877356Why not both dess?!
>>42877332>Sailors on LSDWelp, they're getting dishonourable discharges.
>>42877332Wait when did Hamp upgrade to Kingfishers? I thought he had those bi-planes?
>>42877356Everyone has preferences. They're both lovely ladies.
>>42877376Please tell me we got those guys names so we can surprise sometime.
>>42877332>>42877376This is one of the most normal things that's happened to us all week>>42877378Dock Landing Ship, mate
Hamp's eyes twitch back and forth quickly. “So yeah, that happened,” he says briskly before starting off once more. Your little group manages to reach the galley without further incident, where you find it in the middle of a shift change; a line forming for grub as the prior one deposits a small mountain of dirty trays near the kitchen. A sailor with tongs is listlessly chasing a slice of bacon around a deep pan filled with lukewarm grease. Before he can catch it, a fuzzy head pops over the kitchen side of the chow line and snags the bacon in one lighting-fast snap. The sailor blinks, his tongs dangling listlessly.“Keep the line movin,” a cook growls.“But-”“One piece of bacon apiece. You know the ration rules, there's a war on you know!”“But a dog just-”“Whatever you say, wiseass,” the cook says, waving him away. “Maybe he stole it for the CIWS turret that SMILED at you the other day.” The sailor slams his half-loaded tray onto the bar, making his mystery meat bounce. “It wasn't a seawhiz!” “It even had a life ring, like a skirt,” the sailor behind him adds helpfully. “If you'd taken our advice in Subic Bay you wouldn't be this fucked up right now, dude.”
>>42877377Because, there is not enough common sense in this world to make the decision Kongou
>>42877376>>42877332>Goodbye, hallucinationThat brings back memories
>>42877378You know, people like you make me smile. Because you're dumb enough to think that life is really that simple.There's wiggle room for EVERYTHING, if you squint hard enough and suck the right dicks.
>>42877184Corporal, while I may disagree with you on several issues, the point is, I respect the fact you get straight to the point and treat political bullshit the way it ought to be treated.On the matter of Yamato however, we are 100% in agreement. I can see Goto's reasoning as well, but quite apart from the practical aspects of Yamato's potential impact on the war, we have to consider the morale and the political message she would send.Nationalists MAY try to rally around her, for sure, but she is YAMATO. She perfectly fits the idea of yamato nadeshiko, even to her name. She would not even need to address them or their action directly, to utterly defeat them. She is not a ship anymore; she is a shipGIRL and by her personality, her actions, her very BEING, there is nothing the crazed relics of a bygone era can use to further their agenda. She is Japan's strength in tradition, peace and military discipline. She is not a force that lusts after dominion or sets itself as pre-eminent in the world. She simply endures and protects what matters. Japan, Empire or Democracy, could not possess a more worthy flagship or role model for the entire nation.Now where's my bed..? Apparently I wax eloquent when I'm sleepy.
>>42877306No.... No, I do not have siblings.I am alone. The Great Harbour Ship of Bentus. There never was another like me, and there never will be again.
The sailor rounds on his companion. “Any more people take YOUR fucking advice they're gonna clear out the forward DC locker and put some chairs and magazines in it for people waiting in line for Captain's Mast! Hey, how many asschewings do you need before you start earning frequent fuckup miles?” The other sailor shoves him, sending him stumbling backwards into the guy in front, splattering mystery meat gravy all over his uniform. The victim - a rather large-looking Marine - begins to make a slow, ominous turn, before you see his shoulders slump in weary defeat. He just reaches for the tongs to get more meat.“Holy shit,” the sailor behind him breathes as his victim tries to haul himself off the deck. He points at the corgi who's clawing his way onto the bar, ears flattened back to clear the sneeze-shield. “DOG!” The WHAAANG! of the Marine's aluminum tray impacting the sailor's jaw reverberates around the entire mess, mashed potatoes and gravy spraying everywhere. The big man seems to start in surprise as he sees the Corgi retching and spitting a bit of mystery meat back into the pan. “... oh, shit,” he says apologetically just before another sailor hits him from behind in a flying tackle.The entire mess becomes a hailstorm of flying food, fists and bodies within ten seconds flat, an all-out melee. Through the chaos and deafening roaring rage careening around the compartment you see the Corgis making for the opposite door, their jaws laden with various purloined goodies. [ ] DOG.

>>42878200>巣晴らしThink you mean 素晴らし . Wrong first kanji--what you wrote is "Nest Harashi."

This thread has three images left.
>>42878046you are the best artfag ever.
>>42878226>素Fug. I've just started on kanji. I'm fishing for (you)'s anyway.
>>42878186Fuckin, no fucking problem. I got these instead.
>>42874757Savannah Master yo
>>42878243>>42878217>>42878276Thank you anons!>>42878252Tenryuu and Tatsuya locked themselves in their room dess!They said they were creating something grand for the summer comiket...I'm sure we'll find out soon dess!
>>42878344Why is she within firing rage?
>>42878344Jap archery fucking triggers the shit out of me.How do they hit anything shooting like that much of a spaz
>>42878320>500 mg of caffeine per bottle>A cup of coffee, by comparison has around 85-100 mgHate, goddammit, you give her that shit and she's bound to lose a kidney or throw something out of place!
>>42878316I took one semester then realized I was too goddamn old to learn kanji. Google Translate helps with single words, though.
>>42878405If it works, it works. More than one way to shoot a bow.Actually, there are tons. Horseback archery is awesome.
>>42878392Well, I got my part done but Tenryuu still has ten pages to go. But know that I know you got those energy drinks Kongou, I'll stay out of sight.
>>42878405If it's stupid, but it works, it's not stupid.
>>42878405Wasn't it originally developed for shooting longbows on horseback? Which is why their bows are so asymmetrical?
>>42878452Yup. That's what samurai originally did. Shoot the shit out of people from horses.Fucked it I know why they ever started with the swords. In other words got less awesome.
>>42878412Yeah. Like her hips. And maybe Goto's too. Don't worry, it'll do him good to be in ordinary for a fucking while.
>>42878452Except Mongolians did it better and their bows are symmetrical.Conclusion: Japs cannot into weapons.
>>42878486Their matchlock developments were pretty interesting, though.
>>42878486>Except Mongolians did it different and their bows are symmetrical.Two different combat methods there.
>>42878486Hmm>woodpecker>Nambu>ZeroI think you might be right.
>>42878431>>42878446>>42878452>>42878471>>42878486>>42878511>>42878522This conversation is fucking retarded. Boats you fucks.
>>42878471The sword was there for mopping up, and for backup in case your horse took an arrow and went down.
>>42878486Different cultures, techniques, and equipment. Mongols used recurved compound bows, which are powerful but compact. In comparison, the traditional Japanese mounted archer used what was essentially their take on a longbow.
>>42878536They had some gems.Their 100mm naval rifles were great, the Yamato's 18in are good, and the Zero was a great aircraft...in 1941
>>42878511Nanban go home. Katana stronk.
>>42878575calm thyself faggot. this is the usual for between post discussion
>>42878583I still remember threads arguing the merits of throwing Agincourt veteran longbowmen against Japanese archer cavalry.
>>42878575>constant complains about how the japs make shitty decisions>and have combat boats that are out-performed in nearly every way by other territories producing ships at the same timeI'M STILL RIGHT FAGGOT.>>42878522>horseback riding>shooting bows>noted for being better archers then standing japs>muh cultural differencesno they were just bad at it.
>>42878431It's very hard to be consistent when you don't anchor the arrow. You depend on your whole body being on the same exact positions on every shot. That's why it's so hard...
>>42878598>folded pig iron>strongThe katana is literally only good against unarmed people.

on second thought, new thread for this update
>>42878681Oh dear, seems Anon has picked the two worst options>who woulda thunk it
>>42878681>God help you, you've greased the goddamn pigsHa, thought that might happen
>>42878632>The Fubuki-class destroyers (吹雪型駆逐艦 Fubukigata kuchikukan?) was a class of twenty-four destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The Fubuki class has been described as the world's first modern destroyer. The Fubuki class set a new standard not only for Japanese vessels, but for destroyers around the world. At a time when British and American destroyers had changed little from their un-turreted, single-gun mounts and light weaponry, the Japanese destroyers were bigger, more powerfully armed, and faster than any similar class of vessel in the other fleets. They remained formidable opponents to the end of World War II, despite being much older than many of their adversaries.
>>42878681So would you say that Settle...is foaming in rage?>select all boats
>>42878718>Oh dear, seems Anon has picked the two worst optionsOh dear, it seems you are also Anon and should feel ashamed at your words and deeds
>>42878691You're just incapable of seeing the strength of steel folded over one-thousand times. In fact, the Nips would forge katanas into matchlocks by fitting a stock directly onto the hilt. That's how good grorious Nippon's steel was. The katana was so good it was capable of firing other katanas.
>>42878736I absolutely voted for those two options so therefore i have the power of hindsight.
>>42878718>implying I don't pick the funniest option every time
...Did we just order Kitakami to dive into that foamy mess to wrangle slippery corgis, ensuring that her uniform and her self will be sopping wet and messy at the end of it, like she had been washing a car?...Ooi is going to kill us. Unless we take pictures to offer to her as recompense.
>>42878783yes, yes we have.
>>42878718>implying there are good options
>>42878783Or to shoot them
>>42878783Ooi is currently seducing Shiranui in a misguided attempt to make Kitakami jealous.
>>42878783Nah, she and Ooi are through by now, we're safe

>>42875817>It used to be 'First Lord of the Admiralty' but that title got phased out in 1964 for reasons that escape me at presentThe First Sea Lord was in use long before that. Churchill and Fisher were both referred to as that.
