“... she does at that,” you say slowly. “Kitakami and Ooi returned in their torpedo cruiser configuration, didn't they?” “Yep. Forty tubes apiece.” “Hmm. With all the islets in there... we ought to be able to set up a nice, tight crossfire.” The more you think about it, the more sense it makes - the CLs *are* a bit tougher than the destroyers, have slightly better firepower and are still fast and easy-handling in the shallows. You glance at Shigure again, and that decides it. “I think Jintsuu's got a point, too,” you say quietly. “Goto?” “The enemy won't want to operate anything bigger than heavy cruisers in that shooting gallery, so...” he nods. “I'm in. Has ASEAN told us what they can bring?”“Hate's on the phone with them right now,” you say, jerking your thumb over your shoulder by way of indication. “Ah. What do we know already?” “Well, they've got our problem writ large - spread too thin. And their powerful assets are either tasked with escort, or concentrated at important choke points - and that basically means Malacca. Most of what they've been doing is ASW patrol; especially at the straits, since the subs have to pass there and they hate shallow water.”“So mostly corvettes and fast-attack stuff, patrol boats,” Goto replies. “Well, that's perfect for those waters - if we can pair them off with your PT b-” Goto's phone rings. “Just a sec- Goto here.... good, glad to hear it, keep it up.” He hangs up with a sigh. “Fucking bitch made a lot of work for me with that damn call. Anyway, most of them carry anti-ship missiles, don't they?”
Please sink for me.
“Yeah. Harpoons, Exocets, a few even have C-802s - whatever they can lay hands on at a good price.”You flatten out the map and start making marks with your pencil. “Then... if they can scrape up a few frigates for us, we could put them in back - what do they pack?”“Indonesian ones? Sea Wolf, mostly.”“Well that's fucking useless. Those new Formidibles the Singaporeans bought, they've got ASTER-15s, don't they?”“Yeah, but they won't toss those around casually - we'd be lucky to get one, much less two.” Shigure edges closer. You recognize her expression; it's the hesitant look of someone who wants a shore pass very badly and are still trying to improve their excuse by the second. Goto's been ashore longer than you; he doesn't catch it. “Hey, Shigure. What's up?” She opens her mouth, turns red, and emits a small whimper. “Cat got your t-” his phone rings again. “Goddamit- Goto here... well take it away from her... for fucks sake, this is exactly why we bought the goats, idiot! What? No. Don't you- you mother-fucker, I'll boil you in a lake of period blood for that one, you sonofabitch-” You lean over and clap your hands over Shigure's ears. “Okay, what's up?”She starts, ducking away from you defensively as Jintsuu glares at you. “You... uh... talking to... that other guy...”“... Thomas?” “Yeah. You said we're...” she swallows. “Natural?”“Huh? You mean your origins?” She nods slightly. “I had a lot of time to think in the hospital,” you tell her. “All I could do was read, and think. So yeah, that's what I think of it. It's not supernatural per-se - just some aspect of the natural world our theories can't account for yet. If it's a field of science, we're still in the shamanistic phase - chanting and throwing chicken bones.” You chuckle. “Hell, we have ACTUAL shamans summoning you girls. It fits.”

Shigure looks at the floor, hugging herself tightly. You can see she's shaking a little. Goto hangs up his phone with a sigh, refocusing on Shigure. “So... am I really bad luck?” You blink. “They... they can prove it?”“Shigure?” Goto says from behind her. “Have you ever heard about the Bermuda T-” his phone rings again. “FUCK!” he snarls, punching the speakerphone button.“The Bermuda triangle?” you offer as Goto has a low-key and rather irritated chat with someone in Japanese. “Duh,” Shigure says, cringing a moment later. “I mean, yeah.” “Mysterious locale where ships sink all the time, super haunted, cursed, etc?”She nods.“Did you know it's fucking bullshit?”“... what?”“Yeah. The documentaries lied, kiddo. Lloyds of London - you know, the people that insure most ships the world over - say that ships don't sink there any more often than anywhere else. That's the numbers - the statistics. And yet everyone thinks it's a big spooky place.” You shake your head. “People's perceptions of good luck and bad luck are bullshit even with things we understand perfectly. With this stuff? They're just whistling out their ass.” Shigure's eyes begin to tear up. “I'm n-not c-c-ursed?”“No,” Goto says, his latest call finished. “The other girls are just scared, Shigure, or still hung up on-”“It's not them,” she says, so softly that Goto quiets. “The.. the abyssals. They... they do things they shouldn't be able to do.” She backs away a bit till Jintsuu touches her shoulder reassuringly. “So... if I... have an aura, or, a curse, if I was-”
>>44973510Who is this adorable lady?
>>44973517KTKM and Ooichi are one trick ponies but no one else can torpedo spam like them.
>>44973514>this is exactly why we bought the goatsWhat.
“No,” Goto says firmly. “No, you're not.”“How can you know?” Shigure says, tears sliding down her cheeks as she stares blankly at the table. “If I'm r-r-really a-abyssal... how do I know which side I'm on? Can I control it? Or am I just... *on,* all the time, dooming everyone around me?” “Shigure,” Goto starts firmly, “if that was true-” the bright jangle of his phone interrupts him again. He stabs the speakerphone button again. “WHAT!?”“Your position is understood, Admiral.” The ice-cold voice cuts the chatter in the room to a dying gurgle, like a knife drawn across a throat. “Assuming you are capable of handling a polite conversation as well as you've handled this battle, I'd like to ask a courtesy from you. One professional to another.” The army of assorted analysts, techies and spooks that set up camp near Goto just for this eventuality are staring at the phone, entranced by the English accent, so cold, crisp and precise it feels machine-stamped into your eardrum. Goto stares at the phone, his expression inscrutable, until the voice breaks the silence once more. “Please tell my ship that we haven't forgotten her and have no intention of giving up on her.”Shigure drops as if shot, her eyes wide with terror, hands clutched over her ears desperately. “And if you should need a similar courtesy, Admiral, you'll find the favor returned. Just...” the pause almost feels amused, compared to the horrific *feel* of every other word that came cutting out of the speaker. “leave a message in a bottle. Acceptable?” A look of utter disbelief comes over Goto's face, his brow rising incredulously. “She already *knows* that, idiot.” Shigure shrivels into a fetal position, sobbing with quiet terror as Jintsuu stares along with everyone else at Goto. The Japanese Admiral leans over his phone, his eyes glinting like obsidian. *“WE ALL DO.”*
He picks up the handset and SLAMS it down so hard the phone bounces. “Right. Shigure?” He leans over the table. “Shigure, if that was TROOOH!” He pitches over backwards as the girl bolts off the floor and into his arms, burying her face in his uniform. Goto stumbles against the wall before recovering, wrapping his arms around his charge, Shigure still shaking like a leaf, her gibbering terror muffled by Goto's chest. And that's about when everyone else in the room goes fucking apeshit. [ ] Screw this.

>>44974157Cute, if predictable as all fuck. Got any more dumb marine jokes to trot out, or are we done?
Guys, we shouldn't send them shit that says how much they're hated.We should send them shit saying how much they're loved.Erebus and Terror are a designated National Historic Site of Canada. We've spent a shitton of money, time and effort trying to find them, and everything of theirs we do find is treated with the utmost respect. They're rather legendary ships, up here.This won't be the case for every abyssal, obviously, but we should try to emphasize the fact that the majority of them haven't been abandoned, ignored, or forgotten.
>>44974025>So basically if for some reason we need to talk to an abyssalUgh. No.The favor she asked was to relay a message to a shipgirl that she considers an Abyssal in human custody; the return favor would be to relay a message to any of the humans or human ships sunk by Abyssals. She's taunting Goto with the human casualties of this war.

>>44974238I wasn't thinking of your wonderful characters, but rather Naka and this universe's Abyssalification process in general.
>>44974295>>44974299That brings up an interesting question of how abyssals transition back into shipgirls. Do they still look monstrous, or do they return to cute and cuddly form? IF so, does it happen quickly or slowly? etc etc etc.I think the AWOL writer had at least one interpretation, given that HMS Vanguard was all chitinous and scary when she was about to fire on the Admiral, and then later she seems to be normal... but obviosuly that's only as canon as Planefag wants it to be.

>>44974369>That brings up an interesting question of how abyssals transition back into shipgirls.I'd like to see this happen at least once.

>>44974326Canadians would let Terror in even though she is not a cute girl form. They would treat them to a warm meal and bring them to hockey games.
>>44974407You'd never heard of it?
>>44974406Didn't it happen in that Vanguard writeup? I didn't read the third part yet, but it seemed like a shipgirl abyssal'd momentarily during her summoning and then fucked off back to sea and regained her sanity.
>>44974340Well, it follows most of the manga's one-trouble-per-episode schtick.One episode has him thinking about bringing Moe to ancient Rome.
>>44974371A couple other songs from this group:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjRL1_9kCywWhich, I believe, describes at least subconsciously why Settle is so afraid to accept Arizona's love.And then this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDJtQmrgb8sWhich I like because of the fast pacing.

>>44974388Iku taught me.And then I taught Iku.GET ON MY LEVEL, GREEKISTANIAN.
>>44974044It's always time to drink
>>449744222nd anon you quoted, no iwas just joking off how canukistans are generally so nice and have a pencahnt for saying we're so sorry
>>44974480Oh, Naka. He was already there, waiting for you.
>>44974369Well, we have two examples of shipgirls skirting towards the Abyss.Shigure only got the spoopy eyes in a moment of stress, and they went away right after.Naka-chan... we don't know if the lack of healing is an Abyssal thing or something else. Last we saw she was pale as fuck and had no blood left, and the spooky eye.
>>44974442Perfect. Will watch.
>>44974407"Nip" is so last-century.Elevens, moonspeakers, slant-eyes, DC-challenged... Plenty to choose from.
>>44974295Yes.>>44974422They're abyssal because they think we abandoned them.Proving that we haven't would utterly destroy their justification for fighting us.
So just out of curiosity, writeups or no writeups tonight?
>>44974454Give Terror a place in front of the fireplace and we will tell stories of hunting deers.
>>44974504Moonspeakers isn't really a slur, and applies to anybody who knows japanese.
>>44974449I came across that group too.
>Abyssals expect us to send them something nasty or demands for surrender>we send them a mixtape about how much we have always missed them, videos of how much we care for the girls that have come back and how they've adjusted to their new lives, and letter offering a pardon for abyssals who wish to return and status quo ante bellum who wish to remain in the sea doing whatever.It probably won't work, but we can try.
>>44974480Are those Harder's boxers on your head or something?Don't deny it being Harder's. I can read the SS-257 above your hair bun.
>>44974504I'm amused at the though of a RN shipgirl coming across Code Geass.And then the All Hail Britainnia starts showing up.
>>44974514I don't want em' back. Feelings of abandonment in no way justify what they've done. They're sadists.
>>44974469/a/ uses it all the time, dude. I know this is /tg/ but /a/ is right over there.
>>44974163what exactly is wrong with cartoon waifus having forcey fun time?
>>44974546Moonspeaker isn't really an insult, just somewhat racist and rude?
>>44974403It is catchy somehow.
>>44974514Why should we bother though, is a better question.Killing them is just as easy, if not easier, once we find them, and they can't stay hidden forever.
>>44974407>>44974469>elevens>slur>literally something from an anime made by the Japanese about themselves
>>44974574They are, apparently. I always just assumed it was some weird jap hat and never looked closely.
>>44974572>we send out the mix tape>inevitably one defects>She's just as emotionally vulnerable as shigure.
>>44974537Canuks don't hunt deer...they hunt Moose....every day before sunrise and then go canoe out into the middle of a lake to play the accordian,
>>44974575Show them Euphinator.
>>44974579Sure, but if they chill out, they stop killing everything.Warm fuzzies are a valid anti-abyssal weapon.
>>44974369 The two stories where that's been done is AWOL and Deutschland.The former looked like Vanguard's weapons were the most abyssal part of her.Deutschland still had the spooky Albino look despite defecting the moment she understood what was going on.
>>44974318>And you don't THINK with porn,I do.
We should just welcome them back into the fold.We did not know and we left them to rot.At least. Now we have a chance to make things right. Rather than waste resources on a war of extermination.
>>44974449>>44974471>>44974461https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIwzRkjn86wThe year was 1778, and how I wish I was in Sherbrook now.
>>44974602>Killing them is just as easy, if not easier, once we find them, and they can't stay hidden forever.It's a good thing you'll never be in charge of any military or diplomatic organization ever.
>>44974623PADDLE FASTER I HEAR ACCORDIONS
>>44974634Hm, could I get a link to Deutschland? I don't think I ever read that one! Obviously I need it for reference purposes.
>>44974163>So rape's okay,It's a pretty common fetish here.Mostly because most anons can't picture a girl actually WANTING to fuck them, even in their fantasies.
>>44974623Where is the sex in canoe part?
>>44974655Keep paddling, but the Chasse-Gallerie is right behind you.And the Devil is leading the way.
>>44974637NTR is the thinking man's fetish.This is why Iku is equally as thrilled by watching Naka and Harder flirt as she is by flirting with Harder herself.
>>44974648I don't think you understand war very much, anon.When your enemy wants to kill you, no exceptions, that's not the time for diplomacy.You need to give up on this idealistic bullshit of bringing the abyssals back over, because it's just not worth the time and effort.Because when the enemy wants to kill you, you kill him first.
>>44974667Sea shanties by themselves won't work to change their minds, but it might be something an abyssal might like to have. It'd be like sending them chocolate. You know, like those "chocolate bombers" during the Berlin Airlift.
>>44974714Get out of here, cuck.
>>44974667The first one is excellent.
>>44974714I mostly think of the people getting NTRed as those assholes who don't know how to merge.
>>44974740I met the candy bomber himself once. That was a cool day for me.
>>44974728Yeah, but our enemy doesn't want to kill us, no exceptions. Well, I'm sure some of them do, but abyssal waifus, damn it!
>>44974740>chocolate bombersDo tell us more.
>>44974714>tfw Iku flirted with Harder not merely because she wanted a lay, but because she's looking for someone, anyone to replace Naka in her life>tfw she will never find someone like that>tfw naka messages her that she's dying, and there is nothing iku can do about it
Has anyone figured out if shipgirlsnmeed oxygen?I was wondering what the world might do with all the shipgirls if the war just ended like that.Short of war which would be terrible too for them, the first thought was putting them into spess.Human sized Space Battleship Yamato.
>>44974776>You will never meet a WW2/Korea/Vietnam flying vet in your lifetimeSucks man
>>44974776>candy bomberThat sounds like a stripper name.
>People spooked by surprise sexFags.
>>44974787Bombers filled with chocolate bars.Each bar had a mini parachute.
>>44974812I met a few Resistance members. One of them's my grandmother, who was a courier.
>>44974812Our generation has the war against that clusterfuck that is ISIS, Al Qaeda and whatever wack a mole rears it's psychotic head this month.
>>44974812I used to know a Pearl Harbor survivor, when I was younger and did a lot of work with local vet groups. Coastie, he's probably died by now but he was a chill guy.
>>44974812I nearly had the opportunity to meet one of the Lancaster Bomber pilots of the Dambusters last Summer. He died before I could do it though. Crying shame it was.
>>44974784Are you nuts? That's pretty much all that they're here for!
You slip out of the room as a good dozen people all start yelling at Goto at once. From the collective din you gather that they are expressing their disappointment with Goto's comprehension of the plan for this anticipated event, his appreciation for the value of drawing out a conversation for purposes of gathering more intelligence, his ability to serve, his ability to continue to serve, his general level of intellectual prowess, and the quality and verifiability of his purported lineage. The door clicks closed behind you, muting the hubub.You pull out your phone and place a call. “Wain here.”“Hey. It's Settle.”“Hey.”“Wain?”“Yeah. My name's Wayne. Wayne. Wright.” You blink. “... why didn't you tell me before?”He chuckles. “Because this moment is always funny as hell. What'cha need?” “I wanted to ask your advice on how Naka's coming along.” “She's... not, really,” Wayne says slowly. “Her damage hasn't been repaired.” “She seems to be walking around just fine now - no more wheelchair, not even a limp,” you point out. There's a slight wet sound on the other end, like he's clearing his throat. “She's well shored up, but the damage hasn't been properly repaired, or healed. Like dockside repairs compared to drydock work. It's all patchwork, it might rip off easy.”“If you had to do it the hard way, get her to summon her Outfit and weld on her, could you have her ready to go on short notice?” “... I could try,” Wayne replies. “You never know until you get started what problems you'll find.” [ ] ... you're dodging me. A lot. What's wrong with her? Tell me, god dammit, tell me NOW. [ ] Do it anyway. Patch her up as much as you can - because I've got a feeling she's going into battle soon, no matter what I do or don't decide. [ ] What's her state of mind? That's going to make the real difference here.
>>44974814Sometimes war stories are heart warming.
>>44974784>but abyssal waifus, damn it!This isn't that kind of quest anon.
>>44974787During the blockade of Berlin in 1948 by the Soviets, an American pilot named Gail Halvorsen was taking videos out by templehof when he encountered some german children just staring at the planes. He talked with them and they talked of such high minded topics as the potential war, and of the amount of food the planes were bringing in and how they preferred freedom to communism. This touched Halvorsen to give them something, which happened to be two sticks of gum in his pocket for fourteen kids. He decided to spend his candy ration to give to the children, but he couldn't go out again, and he decided to drop it from his plane with parachutes made of handkerchiefs. This eventually grew into an operation called Little Vittles that dropped something like two tons of candy on the children of Berlin weekly.

>>44974923I imagine so fucking big they turned into ovaries.
>>44974902People always say that.I don't really expect the Abyssals to come back and be all happy about humanity again. But I do think we might be able to get them to stop, rather than have to play whack a mole for the next few centuries.Imagine what will happen when fucking Cold War vessels start coming back as Abyssals. You really want this war to continue until the point they have access to IBCM submarines that had a shitty crew or didn't get enough maintenance? We need to end this war soon. Not within the next decade.

>>44974812I knew a POW survivor from the Bataan Death march. he went to my church and that is how I found out about him. He was far more amazing than anything.
>>44974969>It's probably more a matter of most anons can't picture anyone but the POV character having any agency.
>>44974906Was this during the siege or after it?He got balls of steel if he is dropping this while AA fires on him.
>>44974994Yup. One may joke about waifus, but we really can't sustain a war against ALL THE SHIPS FOREVER. Placating them seems more likely then beating them in combat.
>>44975036Fun Fact: Because of her 9.2" guns, the Washington Treaty reclassified her as a Battlecruiser.
>>44974994So we end it by killing them all.Abyssals seek purpose; their purpose is to die.
>>449750391948, so during the Berlin Airlift. No hostile fire, just a constant stream of aircraft carrying food and supplies to an isolated city.
>>44975036>violent altercation in the PX>over the cheese they have in stockno thanks
>>44974812Not quite relevant to either of those, but my father was present as part of the staff attached to a UN General in the Bosnian War and nearly died four times. Earned a Victoria Cross for it when he came back.
>>44975039During the Berlin Blockade in 1948, I already said that. No AA, but the Russians would try to blind pilots with searchlights and play chicken with them with their fighters.
>>44974990Seriously, tho. Being a courier is one of the toughest jobs in any resistance force.>>44975017Cool. Tough guy, then.>>44974982>He met a screamin eagle and some Doolittle RaidersParuparuparu.jpg

>>44974923Belgium and I've never met a stronger or prouder woman in my life.She hid messages, ammo and small arms in her schoolbag at from age 15 to 20, ferrying them around where they were needed.I imagine she was never caught because she never, ever showed a single sign of stress or fear. That's the kind of woman she is.>>44974883[X] ... you're dodging me. A lot. What's wrong with her? Tell me, god dammit, tell me NOW.

>>44974883>[X] ... you're dodging me. A lot. What's wrong with her? Tell me, god dammit, tell me NOW.Time to yank the cat out of the bag. I'm tired of this "Left Hand not know about the Right Hand's Condition" Shit.
>>44975085Good luck trying to kill almost every ship ever built. Forever.
>>44975060And how the fuck do you know it's going to be against all the ships forever, retard?Quit it with the hippy pacifism crap, you're gonna make me sick.Make like a proper fa/tg/uy and rev up that murderboner.
>>44975126Not everyone was a warrior in those times anon
>>44975085We don't even know for sure that they won't just rise back up forever!And either way, there are a LOT of potential abyssals. And as pointed out, eventually some of them will have world-ending capability maybe possibly do you really want to find out?
Is it really good to demand this information from him instead of asking Naka ourselves?
>>44975091>>violent altercation in the PX>>over the cheese they have in stockThis is even before the cheese is lit on fire.
>>44974883>[ ] ... you're dodging me. A lot. What's wrong with her? Tell me, god dammit, tell me NOW. We need to know whether she's combat ready asap if we want this all planned out.Well, at least Settle needs to know

>>44975167...hhhhhng.Sauce. Give me the goddamn sauce, spray it all over my back, I'll drink it down hot, just GIVE ME THE FUCKING SAUCE.
Well, I'd stick around, But I gotta fucking bounce. Seems some greasy unwashed shitstain got picked up by the SPs taking pictures of the girls with a zoom lens. He had a couple of Yamato on there. I'm gonna enjoy breaking his fingers.
>>44975091Priapus is Roman.
>>44975118Not wanting to fuck wo-chan? What are you, gay?>>44975150I dunno, seems the pragmatic option to me. Either way, we're already fighting plenty, and I don't really expect that to stop just because we start telling them nice things. YOur murderboner will not go unsatisfied.
>>44975245You're gonna have to break more than his fingers to keep him quiet about her.
>>44975116And those were just the more famous ones, I've met ball turret gunners, B-17 pilots, my great-granduncle fought in the Battle of the Bulge at St. Vith with the 75th Infantry Division. I've met pilots from Korea, a Wild Weasel pilot from Vietnam.
>>44975205That artist has a lot of works on boorus. Don't know the name.

>>44975276>>44975292I gotta turn him over *relatively* intact to the Nip federal police or whatever the fuck. The camera is gonna be a pile of slag at the bottom of the bay long the fuck before that though. along with anything else he's got on him now. We've got a set of prison coveralls the fuck can wear, we're burning everything else he had.
>>44975245>break his fingersWhy aren't you having him disappeared by the local police? You know they can do that, don't you?Have the local police process him, then put in the paperwork that he was "transferred to the Ministry of Justice for national security reasons" and then have the CIA take him to a blacksite, or simply kill him and have the body disposed of.
>>44975197Like I said, never met a stronger woman in my entire life. When the Germans came AGAIN, she didn't hesitate. Hell, her family didn't even take part in the Evacuation.They were old school Socialists. She was never even baptized until she married my Grandfather. For them, resisting the FUCKING GERMANS/FASCISTS was a matter of course. She could ferry messages and supplies inconspicuously? That's what she'd do, no doubts in her mind.I don't think she ever doubted herself once in her entire life.
>>44975255There ain't nothing pragmatic about trying to talk nice to the mass murdering monsters m80.The only pragmatic thing is to kill them faster and more efficiently.
>>44975355Hate, use the excuse of "he fell down the stairs".If anyone questions it tell them to bring it up with Settle. I doubt that they will want to talk with an American Admiral.
Can't wait to launch the torpedo boatbitch
>>44975395>Socialistthat explains a lot.
>>44974740I wonder if there isn't a series of massive air lifts for isolated islands considering how dangerous the sea is.
>>44975474I imagine that the Falklands would be resupplied via airlift for the most part. I doubt that the Argentinians would be willing to host British supply ships.
>>44975337From the family genealogy records: On December 16, 1944, the Germans launched an offensive to charge across the Belgian Ardennes, cross the river Meuse, and take Antwerp, cutting off the main supply base for the Allied Armies on the Western Front, and dividing the British and American armies, forcing one or both to sign a separate peace on the Western Front. This would free the Germans to concentrate on the Russians on the Eastern Front. Uncle Don, serving in the 75th Infantry Division, joined this battle, known as the Battle of the Bulge or the Battle of the Ardennes. As infantrymen in Company B, 290th Regiment, Sgt. Krail and his unit were thrown into the Manhay Gap in an attempt to stop the Second Panzer Division. They spent Christmas Eve and Day 1944 fighting and freezing in the foxholes here around Erezee, Manhay, and Grandmenil. Uncle Don was wounded on January 6, 1945, earning a Purple Heart, which Steve (my uncle who compiles this stuff) now proudly possesses. (He returned to fight with his unit in France on February 15, 1945.) The Germans never amde it across the River Meuse, stopped at Dinant. Late January 1945 marked the end of the Battle of the Bulge.Sadly I never got to meet him, he died when I was 9.
>>44975295Speaking of Kongou.
did the torpedo lesbians ever make up, or do they still hate each other?

>>44975531Swig a bottle on your uncle's grave next memorial day will ya dude? That was fucking epic of him.
>>44975566Crix stopped writing because he couldn't handle the bantz
>>44975562That's like trying to beat a motherfucker to death with a bat while trying to console him about the death of his dog.Just stick to one or the other, hippy.
>>44975566Who knows so have some Ooi.
>>44975474I'd imagine it'd depend on the importance of the island and the population size of it. An island with a small population but well defended enough that it didn't get BTFO by abyssals yet would probably get evacuated so that defensive force could be deployed to another area. An island that has strategic importance or has a population too large to evacuation (Hawaii, Japan, UK) is probably being supplied by airlifts.However I think >>44975528 is wrong. Falklands would be a good candidate of abandonment because, even if it is UK's rightful clay, it's too far to be supported and the Argies likely couldn't retake it even if they wanted to. It might have a military force still, but it's civies were probably evacuated.
>>44975039This happened in 1948.Still the soviets liked to buzz planes, blind them with spotlights, and do all sorts of trollish tactics to make them crash.
>>44975566>>44975597They're currently in dyke limbo.Though neither of them are really the type to talk about their issues to us, or during battle, so it probably won't come up unless one of them bites it
>>44975616>Sorry m8, its just business. Survival of the species and all that.
>>44975457It kind of helps, yeah. Most Resistance cells were composed of Socialists, after all.That my great-grandmother had lost family to the Kaiser's armies back in the Great War also put some... personal issue into their stand.Belgium had lots of grudges with the Germans. For extremely good reasons.>>44975511The Socialists then and the Socialists now are entirely different beasts.For one, the Socialists then weren't afraid to put their lives on the line, knowing that the slightest mistake meant death for them and their families.
>>44975579I got a single google result.
>>44975126grandparents were chinks. my brother made up a story about my grandma running away from the Japanese that won a middle school essay contest for whatever reason
>>44975665>It's personalRevenge is a dish best served with a Belgian waffle, it seems.
>>44975702My grandfather used to fight for the Republic of China against the nips.
>>44975116Tough? I would say so. But more so he was smart. He realized that he had to quit smoking ASAP. The poor souls who were addicted to smoking would trade their food for a lite. Those guys died first. Later on he was shipped to Japan as slave labor in the factories that we were bombing. From his testimony of the atrocities the Japs did in Bataan and to the POWs, I feel completely justified in that the nips got what they deserved in us nuking them. A side note, He's not the only WW2 vet I knew. My great Uncle was also a Marine who landed on Iwo the first time around. He was also wound up being the cook for the men he was with after word. (the original cook was killed in the fighting). Later on he was one of the witness of the US nuking all those war ships.
>>44975616You're not wrong, but we're talking about ships who are girls here. They are both ships (weapons to be fought with and battled and destroyed etc etc etc) and people (with impressively fragile emotions and motivations at that). Gotta balance them like your chakras, maaaan. Balance the elements, maaan.
>>44975740Hey, Fluff. When're you gonna do another writeup?
>>44975740>Iwo and BakerWow.Just.Wow.

I'm all for giving Abyssals hentai doujins.
I'm just gonna leave this here.
>>44975833I love it when hentai just drops all pretenses and knows precisely what it's purpose is.
>>44975720Oh, we made each other bleed, alright. During the Great War, no one dare (or could) oppose the slaughters committed by the Kaiser's forces.We had no problems retaliating against Hitler's, though. We'd learnt to gather the means to do so.
>>44975731heard some story from a relative where my paternal grandmother's father was some sort of officer (or even a general) in a Chinese military of some sort before he was shot off his horse by a sniper (by the Japanese or a rival Chinese army I have no idea), falling into a field of shit.Dunno how truthful that story is though, as I never asked my grandparents about it
>>44975864How did she not go abyssal?
>>44975864Is that a manned torpedo or something?
>>44975945Yes! It is, in fact, a Kaiten. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiten
>>44975897>We'd learnt to gather the means to do soDoes this involve expired rations and poorly-made gunpowder
>>44975945Kaiten manned suicide torpedo, yes.
>>44975760You know what we do when we fight enemies that also happen to be human?We kill them unless they surrender.>>44975945Yep. Kaiten is the name I think
>>44975978>We kill them unless they surrender.Not always. Just look at North Korea.

>>44975940Because as much as we Westerners think that shit is horrible, the Elevens still don't. Giving your life willingly and intentionally in service to the Emperor was the highest honor. Why should Kitikami go abyssal over that?

Then was sent off to Korea when that started up. He was one of the Frozen Chosin before he had enough of the war, discharged honorably and came home.

>>44976084>Putting together a desk took over 5 hours with 2 peoplewhat does this have to do with Torpedo Lesbians?Do they still hate each other or are they back to yuri?
>>44976096Nobody has ever messaged me on irc asking for more.
>>44975666Sorry, typo. Kaitenpura. First hit:https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1506405
>>44976145Since when do you actually listen to anyone on IRC in the first place?
>>4497513485% of them are completely useless in the modern worldof that 15% remaining only 20% of them would be warshipsAnd of that it's around a 50\50 on if they'll be abyssal or not.
>>44975962Ah, the Kaiten. The single most ineffective, insane and wasteful manned torpedo to ever be.>>44975972Some did, I imagine. Others stole from the occupiers. Others still got supplies from British supply drops.Everyone listened to the BBC clandestinely, waiting for the signals.Both my Grandfather and Grandmother clearly recall hearing the message on June 6th 1944 that announced the beginning of Overlord. It was the sound that Liberation was coming.
>>44976145>implying you even listen to people anyways
>>44976145Cuz nobody wants anything from you.Well, except that one guy, I guess.
>>44976145we want more faggot
>>44976108Nah, I'll leave that one for someone else.
>>44976145And this has bothered you since when?
>>44976084that's quite impressive if he had his dick in your ass the entire time
>>44976208>weDon't speak for everyone.
>>44976183>what is leveling effectAnd people yell at me for no reading comprehension.
>>44976145I liked torpedo dykes.It was comfy, and helped make the base feel more alive and down to earth.
>>44976217How about a HornetxHamp?
>>44976145I want closure!Or, you know, be like planefag and drop things you start.
>>44976184>It was the sound that Liberation was coming
>>44976229Don't give replies to Crix when he's whoring for attention in threads he actively shitposts in.
>>44976138>Do they still hate each other?Kitakami isn't on good terms with Ooi, but she wouldn't let something like that interfere with a deployment.After all, Kitakami enjoys all the killing.
>>44976145Aww, you miss feeling validated for writing porn?
>>44976238Leveling effect doesn't magically increase the range of smoothbore cannon.

>>44976256I'll do a SettleXShouXAri later on when I get freed up.
>>44976261Belgium and Holland were liberated by Canadian troops, actually.
>>44976273I can think he's a twat and still like what he writes. Just like Feelthy.
>>44976302Did you run out of salt for your lube *already*?
>>44976302>sometime a character surprises youDid Wayne Wright just pimp slap Settle over the phone? He should deploy that new skill against certain telemarketer abyssal ships...
>>44976302IT COMES.Harder will be going Nuclear, I can tell.
>>44976302>like this senpai?
>>44976300But it could do something like give a trireme a terrifying maw and enough speed (from the leveling effect) to close any distance quickly.Stop thinking in terms of "my modern gun is better than your old gun." Leveling effect means "if it had a long range for its time, it will be accordingly long range when compared to modern weapons."
>>44976302Time to get some more popcorn.
>>44976333But he's not any good, unlike Feelthy.
>>44976302Oh fuck. . .
>>44976145Can we ask for more from you on here? Missed your stories a lot
>>44975740A bunch of my great uncles and their friends were WW2 vets, but I never knew them. My dad told me about them though. They were sitting around a table swapping stories, and one of them relates how he was on a hill overlooking some marines in a valley. Some half tracks come, and they're real loud. The Japanese hear and start firing artillery. All the marines haul ass to the other end of the valley... followed by the half tracks, and then the artillery. So then they move again, and again, and again, and so on. Meanwhile said great uncle and his fellows up on the hill are laughing their asses off at the Muppets gag before them.https://youtu.be/K8a5jLedBak?t=1m44sAt this point back at the table, one of the others turns to my great uncle."You son of a bitch.""What?""I WAS DOWN THERE!"
Not sure if "how to into WoWs/DD tactics" anon is till here, but some tips for him while I catch up on the thread.>>44973536>I think that time it was a fortunate coincidence and an unspoken plan. That said, communication works as well.Ideally everyone will be in a division with TeamSpeak headsets, but the game ain't usually that ideal. Even a few words over the chat channel can achieve wonders. (If the recipients actually listen and heed, anyway.)>>44973472>I've only seen gameplay vids of the ships unleashing full broadsides. Can you stagger fire of say your primaries?Yup: just tap the LMB once to fire a single gun at once, hold it down to ripple-fire them all in sequence, double-click for a full broadside.
>>44976302>a character helps you write themThis is the best feeling in the world, isn't it? I wonder how our brains work like that.
>>44976410Subconscious bullshit, of course.

>>44976383>"You son of a bitch.">"What?">"I WAS DOWN THERE!"OhOh god watThat's some Kelly's Heroes tier shit right there man
>>44976302>>44976410>>44976427So who represents Settle's libido?
>>44976391That was me. And yeah, but usually most people want to be the lone fucking hero who carries the team, which ultimately ends up screwing everyone else over.
>>44976302Should we be worried?
>uhh sarge, there's a ship in my rack, what do
>>44976485Hate. Appreciates the look of the girls, focused more on helping them out and making them awesome than anything else, still hung up about LA.
You've heard every horseshit evasion, from the mouths of the experts at countless Captain's Masts. Your hair stands on end as you recognize it once again. “You're dodging me,” you state.“What?” Wayne says.“It wasn't a fucking question,” you snap. “What's wrong with Naka?”“I told you, she's not fully healed-”“WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER!?” you snap, your vision beginning to tinge red. “Settle, calm the fuck down-”“TELL ME, TELL ME *NOW!*” you bellow, punching the wall. “... no,” he says quietly. You feel the heat slip away as the pressure in your head crushes your mind into a single tight point of anger. “What did you say to me?”“Patient-doctor privilege,” he says, steel in his voice. “Why do you want to know?” “Because she's *mine,*” you hiss. “Didn't see your name on her.”
>>44976302Damnit, I knew this was going to happen.
>>44976509When in doubt...[PANIC]
>>44976447Consider this my formal request that Crix does not continue torpedo dykes. The writing was never worth following after the first update when it was clear he was never going to improve, or at least try to improve.
>>44976466>"You son of a bitch.">"What?">"I WAS DOWN THERE!"I would say this is a lie, but then again the world is really too small.
>>44976534This is probably an appropriate reaction image.
>>44976531no, she's harder's
>>44976145>people willingly interacting with crix>crix writing for other peoples attentionyeah no fuck you
>>44976485>Settle's libidoHarder. Awkward to a fault and desperate as fuck to be acknowledged along with "How Do I Girl!?"
“She told me, Wayne, she told me *everything,* she *trusted* me with it. She's *my* ship now.” The heat's coming back, creeping into every syllable and fanning rage back into your voice. “She's mine and she asked me for help and if you stop me from it, I'll kill you, Wayne. I'll fucking KILL YOU!” Shock jolts through your arm as you pound your fist against the wall. He's quiet for several seconds. “She's turning abyssal, Ryan.” You suck a wheezy breath in as the world sways around you. You rasp a hoarse query. “I'm amazed she's not abyssal or dead yet.” Your forehead contacts the plasterboard as you try to steady yourself, your gasps echoing in a hollow, empty chest. “What.” “Her flesh isn't hard to the touch, but I can't draw blood samples anymore,” he says quietly. “Like she's completely empty of it. She vomited up cold oil after - after she got hurt again. The wound in her abdomen is leaking salt water. Thirty-five degrees. Matches the depth her wreck's at.”The cold, flat recital seems to weight on your shoulders, heavier by the syllable. “There's blue light coming from the rent in her midsection.”
>>44976537Wait.How would you know if I would never improve only by reading the first update?>>44976523This ship is meant for bed
>>44976574I will never get over the fact that he looks so much like Jon Richardson.
>>44976531>>44976607Ahaha, well we knew Settle wasn't ALL headpats and smiles
The hallway spins around you, broken plasterboard clutching at your shirt as you slide to the carpet. You rant at Wayne through the phone, demanding why he'd keep this from you, why it's happening to Naka, why they didn't tell you, why he didn't heal her, why, why, *why.* You toss it away and grab at your skull, the awful pressure crushing every sane thought into a little toss-away crumple as you cry and cry and cry, hoarse sobs drifting down the hallway. Someone's talking... somewhere. But it still hurts, so much, your head - the injury? The aneurysm? Are you dying? ... wouldn't it be nice if you were? But if you're not there - then who? Who will-Small hands gripping your shoulders gently, diminutive on your large frame. Shaking you gently, calling. “What,” you manage thickly, lying against the wall like an emptied husk.“Settle? Are you all right?” You look up - and find Naka. Naka, of all godforsaken people, looking at you - *you* - with worry and concern. For a moment you can't begin to comprehend it, the sheer unbridled cruelty of Creation. You can only lie there, stunned. “What's wrong?” [ ] You have stared into the abyss before without blinking. Show me, Naka. Show me everything. [ ] Why didn't you tell me? Why didn't you come to me? Why did you... *WHY?*[ ] Where is this going, Naka? Where are you going? Where does this end for you? [ ] ... Lie to me, Naka. Tell me you're fine, and I'll accept that.
>>44976531>“Because she's *mine,*” you hiss.>>44976607Oh boy.
So guys, how do we expose akashis black market chop shop for ship girl parts? or get a cut ourselves
>>44976607So are we going to deny that she's becoming an abyssal, accept she's becoming an abyssal, or are we going to dodge the issue by going all "but what is an abyssal anyway? she's still Naka, right?"

>>44976383There was a 3rd vet I also knew. Not as well as the previously mentioned. But he was in the Europe theater. He landed on Omaha beach on D-Day and didn't stop fighting till we reached the Rien river.

>>44976466I don't have anymore WW2 ones, but my father was a crew chief on a MC-130 back in the 70s or 80s. Wasn't in any wars, but it was the height of the Cold War. He's a goddamn treasure trove of anecdotes.His first year in, everyone keeps telling him and the other new guys not to worry about missing out on their families, because at the base they're gonna have a G.I. party. Come Christmas, they're all hyped up... till they find out what a G.I. party is: basically everyone just cleans everything. The best part was, at some ungodly hour of the night as he's scrubbing toilets with a toothbrush or whatever, the base intercom comes on."At 0100 hours an unidentified object was spotted entering American airspace and was shot down. It was Santa Claus. That is all."
>>44976849>Kiss her like you're a fucking Prince Charming.How about no. We don't need Harder as an enemy.Kissing her is his job.

Guys, are we gonna need a third thread?

>>44977216>trying this hard
>>44976963I'm just getting warmed up.Most C-130 variants, such as the MC-130, have these strips of tin foil-ish stuff they can launch off to confuse missiles. It considered a pretty funny prank/quasi-tradition for C-130s to "TP" bases with said strips. It was harmless, the strips were cheap and real easy to clean up so the brass didn't really care.Some guys my dad knew were taking off from a carrier, and thought it would be funny to pull these prank on the Navy. So they take off, "TP" the carrier's bridge, and end up royally fucking up its radar and antennas. So their harmless fun leaves a supercarrier, pride of America's navy, deaf, mute, and blind for several hours.Needless to say, heads rolled.
>>44977239Either we all hang together or we all hang separately, eh? Yup. As a side note, in that game, our group of destroyers accounted for six of the twelve ships sunk.
My grandfather was a dermatologist who served in the Philippines in 1945. I highly doubt he captured it himself, but he brought home a Japanese flag.
>>44977285The real question is, who accounted for the rest of them?
>>44977269>they had no fucking idea what chaff was originally designed to dojebus fug
>>44977269>strips of tin foil-ish stuff they can launch off to confuse missiles.Chaff. Anti-missile and radar chaff. You're dad's buddies chaffed a fucking carrier."Heads rolling" is an understatement. If someone didn't loose their job then I'll be surprised.
>>44977269It's called chaff, dude.Also that's some gutsy shit.
>>44977311Who needs an argument when the person speaking shoots themselves in the foot with their own stupidity?
>>44977290Oh that's just damn neat. Anyone hear that can translate the moonrunes surrounding the meatball?
>>44977330Now that feelthy isn't canon, this is exactly how kaga met goto

>>44977377I've had several people in the past look at it. They haven't fully translated it, but they've told me that it's mostly the names places and people. Even some Korean letters mixed in.

>>44977494We really need that list of what writeups are canon, because it's getting really hard for me to keep track of what I need to read up on.
More Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stone Cold Steve Austin when.
>>44977290Possibly-interesting tidbit: a lot of rear-services types bought their souvenirs from combat-arms 'entrepreneurs'. I've read accounts that claim some Aussie soldiers who captured large amounts of Japanese 'invasion money' took to increasing its asking-price by firing a shot through wads of the stuff; they told their customers (mostly American REMFs) that an Aussie soldier shot an IJA general and took the perforated cash from his corpse.>>44977373>that's some gutsy shit.Also a fucking stupid way to put a carrier out of action. >>44977363 is right.
>>44977629working, shut up
>>44977661Sounds about right for 'strayans.
>>44977666tell her to get in line
>>44977173The leveling effect makes relative performance translate despite what should be tremendous disparities in actual specs. It probably wouldn't make arrows shoot through modern armor, but that's more because arrows weren't much of a threat to the structural integrity of ships even back in those days.But something like, say, pre-gunpowder catapults and firethrowers would be just as dangerous to modern steel warships as they were to the wooden ships of their time, despite all physical logic to the contrary.
>>44977636oh no, the tags and the like are fine, they're not being troll archived, just the descriptions are kinda shitty.FUCKING GET BACK TO WRITING YOU NIGGER I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE[/SPOILER]Also:Senpai noticed me!

When they get scissors or a knife to pop it, they get a faceful of whatever powder you filled it with.And that's what they did if you were still conscious. God help you if you passed out drunk.
>>44977637The Parker stuff is.Torpedo dykes is.Naka-time, of course.Feelthy's stuff except the porn.Hate's side of LA.Erebus and Terror.Shimakaze.Maybe some of the british stuff I don't know.And then there's stuff like SoDak that might be canon but might not be, can neither confirm nor deny.I may be forgetting some.
>>44977669Take your time, this seems like it's going to be an update worth the wait.
>>44977638Aviation battleships are the future.
>>44977666Not soon enough.
>>44977669Well, that bodes quite ill.
Also why is it the snarky cynical chicks end up being the one the MC gets most attached too.
>>44977720Buttfuck?Shove a syringe filled with Jeremiah Weed up your ass?
>>44977528>>44977636... in my defence, I thought I wasa] pre-empting that knucklehead who kept deliberately mis-archiving the threadsb] offering intriguing teasers about the contents of the threads without actually handing out spoilers.<- is this me?
>>44977713there has to be some level of diminishing returns when it comes to the leveling effectwhats the point of having a battleship when some ironclad sailship with a 32 pounder can just punch through the 15" belt because "ayy lmao"
>>44977737>I feel like... SOMEONE'S TRYING TO SELL ME SOMETHING!
>>44977762Because you're a faggot that's why.
>>44977737Back to 1-5 with you
Woot woot, page 10
>>44977737Sparky pls go and stay go
>>44977768It's alright, don't worry
>>44977725she had better be
>>44977669I guess we are finally paying the price for everything we have brought about.It was a good run.
>>44977813I want that design to die in a fire.
>>44977772>there has to be some level of diminishing returns when it comes to the leveling effectWhy should there be? It runs on ship soul magic.
>>44977768He's gone, or should be, I haven't seen anything to suggest he's still doing it.Even if it were a problem, a simple e-mail to the owner of suptg fixes it quickly enough.If you're going to do it, you should provide a description of what happens in the thread and not (seemingly?) random quotes that only sound related.(You didn't do anything wrong, you just could've done it right-er)
>>44977815press F to pay respects ;~;7
>>44977832No one gives much of a crap what you want
>>44977832your'e not the only one
>>44976636[x] You have stared into the abyss before without blinking. Show me, Naka. Show me everything. And none of that perverted bullshit either. You know what to show.
>>44977832Weird I feel the same about you but you haven't yet...
>>44977258Is it me or is there something off about how she dances?
>>44977838because otherwise it just gets tiresome besides, we already had an experience where Arizona was protected for the most part against predreadnoughts guns, even at point blanl by your logic they would have killed her no problem
yeah. third thread will be needed. holy shit.
>>44977841Thanks - noted for future reference.
>>44977907Just like the Old Days, eh?
>>44977832You have shit taste, namefag.
>>44977768if you were anonymous you could disown your fuckup and move on and nobody would ever have known
>>44977832Holy shit are you that one guy constantly bitching and whining about lexfag?
>>44977775It's what /tg/ does with quests by the Helicopter Homosexual.
>>44977915the only thing wrong with that is the tits are too big.
>>44977794Now I wonder what Kant-O-Celle sparky would be spouting with the introduction of shipsloops. Gavin with a Sammy strapped to the top?
>>44977832Same. Those tits are comically large and the outfit lacks any hint of sense or eroticism. It's like some gook just thought "Oh, beeg american titties" and slapped together an art.They're not even good tits.
>>44977935Nah, he's one of the writefags. He just dislikes the South Dakota design.
>>44977813freckles on tits are a miracle of the universe
>>44977903Because the further back in time you go, the more the leveling effect applies.Erry and Terry launch lava bombs. Not mortar shells, lava bombs.
>>44977952Most of Ise and Hyuuga's fanmail comes from him
>>44977763One guy they merely doodled horrifically obscene shit all over his head (and he was bald, so they had plenty of room). They went to the mess hall afterwards for midnight chow, when all of sudden the guy walks in utterly oblivious to the various sacrileges adorning his head. My dad and his friends switch from cackling to inhaling their food once they realize he's gonna go sit with them.Another guy they did the same, but with the addition of duct taping him to his bed, which they drag into the back of a truck and took to the front of the base. They it left leaning against the base's "WELCOME" sign.
>>44977952No, an Areogavin with Sammy strapped to it.
>>44977965He is? I've not seen him before
>>44977944Eh, I prefer the more subdued designs usually, but more 'out there' is fine too. If that makes any sense.What I'm saying is that this is fine too.
>>44977915>hatgood>battleshipgood>shell belt and shortsyes, please>attitudeoh god yes>giant stonking tittiesno, that's dumb
The way the fubuki class all look so similar is kinda creepy.Those girls just ain't right.
>>44977997He's new. Did something on Wednesday
>>44977982I think Erry and Terry have more than just the leveling effect going for them
>>44977982That's because the two of them are Boss level, you great big retard.
>>44977915>gaga tits >not focusing on that stern fucking mediocre
>>44977982no, thats just the writer being an shitter and wanting his own bad guys to be super duper evil and edgy
>>44977907I like this feel.
>>44977990>They left a drunk guy sleeping near the welcome signHaahahahahaha
>>44978011Most of the original art is deviantart-tier. The guy that did most of the destroyers gave them all samey moeblob looks. Go look up Ayanami and the rest of her class and you'll see what I mean.
>>44977929Call me crazy, but I like to think owning my mistakes helps me avoid them in future.
>>44977434looks like a lot of kanji around the thing. I recognize a whole lot of them because I can read some Chinese, and they just look like strings of characters that don't really form readable phrases that make sense to me, so they're likely names or something like that.
>>44978040> Lava> EdgyOkay, if you say so. It could have something to do with them being the first and only bomb ships with volcanoes named after /them/ or something but let's go with your version.
>>44978011Sisters tend to look alike, anon.
>>44978011>have to use an identification table to tell them apart and it's still a bit of guessworkit's authentic
>>44978011If you think that's bad, think, 173 fletcher class destroyers. They're all gonna look alike and like Willie. Something like 80 John C. Butler class DE's, all looking similar to Sammy. 77 Gato class submarines, all looking similar to Harder.
>>44978039where, I don't see a stern.>>44978040>implying spooky magical abyssals is not the best
>>44978025Since when is this a video game?>>44978040Canon is canon. And it's only effective on land targets, which is what mortar ships were for.
>>44978057Copy-pasting I think.
>>44977772I would expect there's some degree to which it sort of cuts both ways. An old ship gets its weapons upgraded to have the same level of relative threat in the modern arena, but if a modern ship has armor that can handle the best guns of its day, then the upscaling of the best guns of times past probably wouldn't take them better than the best modern guns and thus able to shred the modern BB. (Plus all our BBs are shipgirls anyway, and thus definitely get to benefit from the leveling effect themselves, which should cut both ways where it might not be so clear-cut when comparing spooky vs. conventional ships.)And we do know that there are some factors that the leveling effect doesn't really impact. Like range -- the big guns on pre-dreads were the longest-range weapons on the seas in their day, but we know they still can't match the force projection of naval aircraft and missiles, which hold the honor of "longest range" today. Though maybe there's an extent to which that has to do with the paradigm shift from throwing shit to self-propelled weapons vectors, and the leveling effect can give a bit of a leg up in range within the general category of artillery.
>>44977982That's because they're bosses.
>>44977907A strange day. First the death of sanity and now a third thread.
>>44978090>77 Gato class submarines, all looking similar to Harder.Yaoi incest doujin of two Gato-class subs when?
>>44978140They directly say that it's because of the leveling effect when they kick the ass of the American destroyer.
>>44978078who is best gifting
>>44978152Sanity was ever alive? Holy shit.
>>44978140>>44978025This is more accurate, yes. Also note that with the exception of their attack on Buchanan (a ship already injured, ingorant, and confused), they've avoided direct confrontation like the plague. They know they're not ships of the line and they ain't about to act like them.
>>44978090Think 156 Clemson-class destroyers, and then add in the extremely similar 111 Wickes-class destroyers.
>>44978084Not realizing you can tell them apart by their hairstyles.
>>44978155Also, 24 Essex class carriers.
>>44977944>>44978039>>44978004Why does anon hate tits?Also, fwiw, she seems to a have a pretty decent stern, however the majority of it is blocked by her "outfit".
>>44978202Not to mention their name predecessors
>>44977935well, lexfag is fucking cancer, and has been since day 1pixelfag needs to come back, I'm tired of shit like >>44977813
>>4497820250 Casablanca class carriers
>>44977713Thing about those weapons is that they're slow to fire and slow to aim.
>>44978188Yup, all I can imagine is that the Japanese girls, whose ships were "unique snowflakes," essentially would look at that and think, "pod people," or something like that.
>>44978210Tits are nice, but those are just comically large
>>44978188Paging Shibafu, we need potato-faced DDs fast
>>44978210Tit's are fine. but that particular drawing tits are a bit much
>>44978173For the last week or so, we made good calls, stayed sane and composed.Alas, it has gone.
>>44978210don't like oversized tits anon
>>44978224Uh, I can only ever recall the guy posting artwork. What exactly made the guy "cancer"?
>>44978210Personally, I look at those tits and wonder how much her shoulders hurt.
>>44978253dare I ask what bad calls we made today?
>>44978183Exactly why Boss level Abyssals of weaker ships are stronger than abyssal battleships in game.
>>44978264he didn't draw his waifu
>>4497822619 Commencement Bay Class CVE's, 4 Sangammon Class Escort Carriers, Sable and Long Island (unfortunately Fluff already ruined them) 45 Bogue Class carriers, need I go on?
>>44978057>Most of the original art is deviantart-tier.Depends entirely on the artist. Not all the ships were one guy.
>>44978280Giving Settle a nervous breakdown over Naka looks pretty dumb now.
>>44978270>>44978252>>44978244Lex version fixes that for me desu senpaimore lexington when
>>44978253I don't know, confronting the big elephant on the base doesn't seem like such a bad idea.Longer things went before Settle knew the whole truth, the uglier the outcome would probably be.
>>44978210Where do I even *start* on how the design is wrong? Tits are too big, it's too stereotypical 'murrican with not enough cowboy/sheriff to represent the namesake state, no real references to the nicknames in the design, and did I mention it just looks like some hooker someone shoved ship girl rigging on?
>>44977377>>44977434I am really bad at deciphering most handwritten moonrunes, but they're Eleven names.
>>44978280Suddenly changing our minds from a previous strategy to using the CLs.Which resulted in PF cackling at the choice made.>>44978303Not this, though.>>44978308More regarding the force disposition choice.
>>44978306Not soon enough. >>44978317I'm sorry to hear you're shit.Maybe consider dropping the name?
>>44978317>some hooker someone shoved ship girl rigging onspeaking of which, how high do you think the demand for ship-girl like prostitutes do you think there is?
>>449782801.deploy CLs when CLs are shit2.deploy naka when naka is the demons3.stare into rl'yeh when we already stroked out from rage once in the last five minutes
>>44978327We overestimated how many ships we could bring, and when we had a closer number we reevaluated. I wouldn't be comfortable with a lone BB, even escorted
>>44978317> and did I mention it just looks like some hooker someone shoved ship girl rigging on?thats most shipsluts desu
>>44978280All of them.
>>44978346We shall see, I suppose.
>>44978344>3.stare into rl'yeh when we already stroked out from rage once in the last five minutesTo be fair, you gotta do something productive with that rage. Could be worse.
>>44978317...so you've never seen Shimakaze, Amatsukaze, or Musashi ever?
Rolled 3 (1d8)>>44978344Hey fuck you too R'lyeh did nothing wrong. We're the Switzerland of the sea.
Big Boss as Bismarck when?Kriegsmarine when?
>>44978339Hi Bentus. Still salty I see. I'm one of the writefags, basically I've earned the occasional right to put on a name in these threads. Most of the time I leave it off though. >>44978347Well I can't say you're entirely wrong.
>>44978347You're assume Shimakaze is the norm.
>>44978318Probably the names of family and friends from the original owner's hometown. Or members of his unit.I wonder if any Allied soldiers took a German soldier's letters from home as a trophy? I'm sure other keepsakes and mementos were fair game, since they've got obvious material value.
>>44978339Hes a writefag, you faggot.Get over your love for the shitty design.
>>44978369Let's not bring bad Jap designs into this.
>>44978327I think he was expecting us to dump Arizona or Yamato down there with Willie, Shimakaze, and someone.
>>44978393>Nagatos>Musashi>Chikuma and Chokai>etcThat SoDak design is actually MORE reserved than some of the jap ones
>>44978342The real question is whether anyone besides Hate ever fucked a shipgirl.
>>44978393>>44978426>>44978369It's telling that Shimakaze, Amatsukaze, the Nagatos and the Yamatos are all from the same artist.
>>44978426Don't forget Takao's barely there that you can see her underwear skirt.
>>44978373you didn't earn shit, other than the well deserved reputation common with all tripfags, of being a faggot attention whore with shit taste
>>44978373I'm not even Bentus, guy.I forgot you were a writefag. >>44978405I don't even like the South Dakota that much, lel.I prefer the Iowa-class.
>>44978373Quick question, why do you always assume it's Bentus?
>>44978229True. And that much wouldn't be magically fixed by the leveling effect, because it was a limiting issue even in its day.The leveling effect just holds the relative value of a ship's capabilities more or less constant despite changes in tech. It's not an all-around "older ships get a bunch of random hax buffs", but rather it just preserves relative level -- both in strengths, AND in weaknesses....Which, actually, come to think of it, I wonder if the Abyssal's spooky ability to pop up out of nowhere and conjure up inclement weather might not be related to the leveling effect too? It counters the standoff advantage of modern aircraft and missiles and such, which would fit with the general paradigm of "maintain relative usefulness as a weapon". Rather than giving old guns fuckoff ridiculous range that even modern guns can't match, the leveling effect preserves the relative value of warships that had fine standoff range in their day by letting them "cheat" into range. Though, as established in the quest, this cheat-in ability breaks down to an extent for larger-scale operations.
>>44978373Nah ever since you put on the name you've been attentionwhoring like hell. Like, why did you even need to register in SB if all you were gonna do was shitpost.
>>44978370>Switzerland of the seaWhat?
>>44978318makes sense, that's why they looked like nonsense phrases when I tried to render them into Chinese
>>44978426it's still a rather crass design. And it's a bit much implying 'figure highlighting' is the same as Shimakaze level stripperness.>>44978456Didn't Yamato and Musashi have different artists?Also many regard Musashi herself as a crass design.
>>44978467>not even a tripfag>calls him a tripfag
>>44978456Everything becomes explained.
>>44978483Because when North joined SB he started attacking him like a fag.
>>44978508I think anon doesn't know the difference between a tripfag and a namefag.
>>44978373Just for this special occasion, I'll take the trip and say that you completely missed the mark.That wasn't me.
>>44978456Amatsukaze's design is perfection.
>>44978508Namefag, tripfag, close enough.>>44978531Go back to being an anon, please.
>>44978495Because shitposting is life. Also because I was bored and wanted to be able to keep track of the stupid shit going on their. >>44978531Glad to know.
>>44978373Jeeeeeesus you're an ass.Take a step back and unfuck yourself, buddy. You're being absurdly arrogant here.
New thread when?
Rolled 2 (1d8)>>44978498Switzerland has literally done nothing wrong ever. They're the R'yleh of the land.
>>44978545Done. Just wanted to make it clear.
>>44978467He's not even a tripfag, salty anon! He's a namefag!*I'm* a tripfag!Even worse, I'm a *secure* tripfag!
So, in other news, guesses on who the first Iowa in Kancolle will be?(I'm hoping Jersey, for obvious reasons)
[SHITPOSTING INTENSIFIES]update when or we riot- wait we're already rioting nvm
>>44978565Fair enough. >>44978563The Swiss need to be stopped before they doom us all, clearly.
>>44978373I gotta say - you seem a lot saltier than either of the SBers you're shitposting at. And Kyte is a pretty salty motherfucker.
>>44978373Yeah, you know what, you can pick up that ball of yours and take it to another sandpit cause no one is fucking interested in whatever crud you're peddling if this is how you're going to act. Christ almighty.
>>44978550If I'm fucked I'm fucked.
>>44978505>it's still a rather crass design. And it's a bit much implying 'figure highlighting' is the same as Shimakaze level stripperness.Its Battleship X, she was a god damn attention whoring slut who never actually did anything, nameship of the class unanimously refereed to as the best battleships of the treaty period
>>44978539She certainly wears more clothes.Though KC's norm is more schoolgirl with shiptraits; naturally people only remember a few of those designs compared to the others.
>>44978505Nope, they're all Shizuma Yoshinori.You can tell Yukikaze and Tokitsukae are him as well because of the same style of lewdness as Amatsukaze.Discounting that, they're not bad designs, he's quite good at incorporating ship elements into the girls' designs.>>44978511Note that he can also do reserved designs. The Akizukis are great, Yamato is basically Musashi's opposite design-wise and Akitsushima is perfect.Dude likes to be a perv, though.
>>44978531>>44978373>oh wow what is this shit? i just came here to discuss shipgirls, what's the big deal? who cares if it would be a lot easier if i'd just post like a normal person? i'm unique and intelligent and i deserve to be recognized!>i can't believe i left spacebattles to just find a place that doesn't even believe in being an attention whore fuck you, i'll keep posting here anyway, but you guys better not make fun of me for being a tripfag when i post.I am so glad I saved this copypasta. Fuck off.
>>44978608>>44978608Especially when Washington was so much cooler. Battleship Ninja anyone?
>>44978580get back to writing BelaBatt, jmp.Really wish those B-52s would've been able to do anything against Hoppo-Habakkuk with that JDAM run. Guess you can't trust zoomies to do a battleship's job here
>>44978614Surprised as Yamato was drawn with underwhelming curves+pad jokes (which most fanartist ignore thankfully) while Musashi was much different.>>44978614Well I suspect he's KC go to guy for eye-catching or was, not sure how well his Yamato class designs went over.
>>44978581That's our secret. We're always rioting.
>>44978609>morehttp://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Amatsukaze/GalleryIt's a semitransparent, skirtless, with kneesocks and garters that literally go all the way up (you can trace the lines under the clothes!). It's lewd as fuck just like Shimakaze.
>>44978566We're cool with you though.
>>44978654Well, Japan can add Missouri first for the lulz.
>>44978492You know what I would like to know, aside from all the "Leveling Effect" stuff, is details about the shipgirls/abyssal life functions. Where does their ammo come from? Where do their planes come from? Can they get sick (with human illnesses)? We've seen them eat food, what happens if they drink oil? How effective would rebuilding/modernizing a shipgirl be? Can they reproduce? Can parts from one shipgirl be used to fix another (this might be of interest to Naka) like transplants in humans? And then the psychological and social aspects: what happens if a shipgirl comes back and she doesn't want to fight? Can the military force them to serve? What if a shipgirl decides she wants to marry a human?
>>44978672But it's lewd as fuck without being stripperiffic. That's god-tier taste son.
>>44978674Aw.I should shitpost more, then!And sorry I haven't been posting ships, I'm kinda out of it today, hahaha!
>>44978679The Iowas and the Yamatos fighting side by side would be great.
>>44978685>Where does their ammo come from? Where do their planes come from?Pretty sure it's been stated in-quest that shipgirls replenish their ammo by, well, eating and drinking. I'd assume planes come back the same way, perhaps?
>>44978659Shaddup, I do what I want!>>44978660>Surprised as Yamato was drawn with underwhelming curves+pad jokes (which most fanartist ignore thankfully) while Musashi was much different.But Yamato padding her bra opens up so many potential avenues for funny plot developments!
>>44978547Didn't they unlock SB? You should be able to lurk with no account.Also I updated the index fuck you and your weird namedropping I already get random asian people joining BL just to PM me I don't need fucking 4chan mentioning me in unrelated threads>>44978594Bitch one time and you're salty forever.It's ok it's true.
>>44978715You do realize the significance of having Missouri as the first official US shipgirl, right?
>>44978492I think the inclement weather thing might just be an abyssal ability, like Naka's singing. Only it comes standard.
>>44978672I'm comparing her to Shimakaze, "wearing more clothes" than her isn't much of a feat.>>44978732Pad jokes have stopped being funny years before KC was even a thing. Just mention Sakuya pad jokes to a bunch of touhou fans and count how many get pissed.
>>44978715>The Iowas and the Yamatos fighting side by side would be great.Wouldn't they anyways?
>>44978696It's literally easier access than Shimakaze!
>>44978685>parts from one shipgirl be used to fix anotherhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZS78FJiL5l8
>>44978741Oh fuck me this is why you don't randomly fucking post shit at midnight Sorry for thinking you weren't from a delicious bowl of soup man
>>44978756>Just mention Sakuya pad jokes to a bunch of touhou fans and count how many get pissed.That's more because jesus fuck the newfags won't shut up about stale memes.
>>44978742Oh. Yes, that has... implications.
>>44978696Classy lewd best lewd.
>>44978679here's the thing though, the last world of the game has the player's fleet going across the Pacific. What lies on the other side of the Pacific? Pearl. Harbor.Who's moored at Pearl overwatching Arizona's memorial? Who was the treaty signed on?Yeah. There's a pretty good chance it /will/ be Mo.
>>44978768yet to the on looker, one would say Shima's more stripperish.
>>44978660I assume he just missed the mark the first time. Later promo art has him drawing Yamato just as stacked as Musashi.I hadn't thought of that but you're right, he's got an eye for achieving meme-tier outfits, they probably ask him to do at least some of those on purpose.
>>44978782>becomes a split personality, like Ocelot with Liquid's hand
>>44978672Shit, I never noticed her outfit was translucent.This only makes me like her more.
>>44978756>Pad jokes have stopped being funny years before KC was even a thing. Just mention Sakuya pad jokes to a bunch of touhou fans and count how many get pissed.I thought it's a comparison to her lackluster war record. She's kinda sucky at the whole battleship thing, so she pads herself out so she doesn't feel so inferior.
>>44978742Yes, the Japanese surrender was signed aboard her.
>>44978742I know shit about USA history. What's the significance?
>>44978807Nah, it'll be Wisconsin just for the "what" reaction.
>>44978865Mo's where the surrender was signed.
>>44978865MacArthur made the Japanese sign the Act of Surrender on her deck.
>>44978800>>44978807Missouri's significance is definitely not lost on a lot of people.>>44978865Read >>44978856>>44978872Poor Montana, not as big as her other sisters.
So how's that riot going, eh?
>>44978872Wisky gets forgotten too often, despite being one of the Iowas to blow the fuck out of Iraq during Desert Storm.
>>44978854yeah, for calling Bentus a twat
new thread when?
>>44978917She's also was surrendered to via drone. That's kinda cool. And IIRC, she was the Iowa that first tested the "barn door" method of stopping within her own length from flank.
>>44978917Wisky drinks too much
>>44978880>>44978897>>44978901Alright, thanks. That covers the 'what happened'.This next one is me being absolutely retarded (Also probably because zero to negative national pride): Why is it significant for Kancolle to use the ship that Japan signed surrender on?
