I saw a documentary on the Blackbird spyplane. I was amazed that it was a TINY aircraft, because Hollywood tend to portray it as a huge jet. I mean most assume it would be the size it was portrayed in the X-men films.

I've seen a few of those things and they're certainly not tiny. They're not jet liners, but they're easily twice the wingspan and length of a normal jet fighter.

How do they even want to make the episode remotely interesting? Italian tanks of WWII were even more worthless than Ooarai's lineup in GuP compared to the other schools.

Will it be 5 mins of battle and 15 mins of fanservice?
>>
>>100056296
Considering the size of the crew it's still fucking huge.
Plus aircraft are big anyway. The Eurofighter's about twice the length of a Challenger 2.

>>100057643
>Length: 107 ft 5 in (32.74 m)

My point is that in popular media it is usually much bigger. As I say, in X-men it was big enough to stand up inside. And in Hellsing Ultimate it was a gigantic thing when proportioned with the aircraft carrier it crashed into.

It would be the only time Ooarai is on the offensive. Like, ever. And as such they would be rusty and don't know what to do. I mean for everyone else, they just respond to the opponent's tactics. But here they would need to make their own plans.

>>100057797

Actually the P40 tank was superior to the Shermans (not the fireflies) in every category.
Italy also produced the best fighter of the war (the Veltro) and had a very respectable navy.

Italy got fucked by shit leadership and mostly shit generals combined with a crappy starting industrial base that wasn't developed when they had the chance.

Not really, it was maybe comparable to Panzer III's and on-par-ish with Shermans, but not above them.

Pretty sure it couldn't hold against the StuG III or the PzIVF2, hell not even the 75mm of the M3 Lee.

You've got a strange understanding of armour behaviour if you think the Lee would survive against a late war P40.

The Stug is pretty much built to take out tanks like the P40.
A Semovente Assault Gun would be a better comparison to it.

Italy had decent or great vehicles in most categories, they just sucked at using them and had nowhere near enough.

>>100058498
And a 'late war' P40 would stand up to a Lee's gun?

>>100057944
The Italian navy in WW2 was shit tier, no carriers, a handful of modern carriers and a large fleet of rusting junk that should have been retried years ago, it failed to take a barely defended Malta when they entered the war and lost its battleships at Taranto.

It's inability to actually win wars from then on led France and Austria to pass it between each other like a cheap whore, before the Austro-Prussian war happened and despite losing badly on their front Italy got independence thanks to Prussia kicking ass.

>>
>>100061530

The only difference is, Ooarai was lucky to even scrape 5 tanks together in the beginning, the Type 89 being useless was a least concern I guess.

Anzio could just switch the two Ansaldos for two M13/40's, not that it would matter that much given that those are useless too, but still.
>>
>>100061657
No, cause they simply couldn't.
Everything above maybe a Panzer1 is too well armored for the gun they have.

honestly, 7TP spam with actual AP ammo, supported by the TSK 20mm tankettes, as well as a few Renaults and FT-17 (polish) would be OK in sensha-do. Kuromorimine, SGGS, and Pravda would laugh at it, but the 37mm on the 7TP, with proper AP ammo, would be able to threaten Oarai, Anzio, and Saunders tanks with a little finesse.

Poland suffers from loosing in '39: they were planning to make a 10TP vehicle which would have been similar to the US Stuart, sans the really good engine, and, it's would pack a 47mm gun.

Nobody is saying Italian navy was the best. But the Italian Navy won no battles, yet they managed to ferry supplies to North Africa with the largest percentage of "stuff sent vs stuff actually delivered" of all WWII navies, and that was going against the Royal Navy AND the Allied air superiority. (No, I'm not Italian, but credit where it's due. They also made good pasta).
Also, GuP already makes the joke of Anzio having a much better intendence than their tank team. And cooking pasta.

> but they didn't use AP shells until the Free French started using shermans...

Every French tanks used AP rounds (including the 75mm SA35 of the B1 and B1 Bis).
However, tanks like the R35 and the FCM 36 had more HE than AP available in their usual/regular combat load.

since when has Australia had any sort of armoured division?
>>
>>100058473
Turan I (40mm gun) and II (short-barreled 75mm gun, both 15-50mm armor) were comparable to a Panzer III or a Panzer IV D, but the Turan III (thicker armor, schurzen and long-barreled 75mm gun, actually a copy of the Pak 40) was almost the equivalent of a late Panzer IV.

Aussies had their own tank program until they figured that the US could build all their tonks for them.

<- This Sentinel mounted two 25lbr howitzers to test if the turret and chassis could withstand the recoil of a 17lbr (which it could)

Well, the Turán III would have been an equal if it was ever made in numbers, it only had 2 prototypes.

Plus, making something equal to an up-gunned and up-armored PzIV isn't all that impressive circa late '43, early '44.

They bypassed the line by attacking along the exact same route they did in the previous war.

Unfortunately you wouldn't be able to get that version of the ARL 44 into a match, as it isn't senshado legal. Earlier prototypes you could.

so what use did the Maginot have? That the Germans couldn't directly into France, but had to take a detour? That ain't much...
>>
>>100059003
It seems you should be reminded yourself of their performance in North Africa, namely how the Italians were the ones covering the German's retreat at El Alamein.

Also, their tanks were not all that worse than their contenders. The M13/40 and the Crusader had similar mobility and were both able to destroy each other. The Allies even used themselves the ones they captured...

It was the Italian leadership that sucked unmitigated ass.

>>100066587

because you can only imagine how this tank would've wiped the floor with everyone else.

except Saunders was not choosing which tank to be the flag tank, they were saying which tank was the flag tank

It would be stupid if you could just choose your own flag tank, Black Forest would just pick the Maus and win all year, every year.

It's even funier. The anime actually makes it wrong with the B1. It's one person to load the gun, one person to drive and aim the gun (that had ZETO traverse and was finely aimed by a rather crazy overengineered direction system that allowed the WHOLE TANK to be pointed finely ), and an overtaxed person to man the secondary AND command the tank.
>>
>>100067647
No, they discussed about the crew which will operate the flagtank and not the tank.
>>
>>100061657
Yet they were pivotal for every single victory. They scouted, they lured, they covered, they survived, they baited, and they got a fucking MAUS ASSIST KILL.

Would love a tank game with ocolus support.

Would be a great way to show the real main difference between German tanks and espencially the Russian tanks.

Debatable. Certainly MBTs aren't the best fit for the current insurgency based wars the first world is fighting at present, but they're still useful. And it would be foolish to assume insurgencies will be the only wars ever fought from now on.
>>100067788
To be fair, tank design and doctrine in the inter-war years was mostly feeling its way in the dark. But I think the B1 has to have one of the worst crew role allocations ever...

What you forget was that Belgium had their own defensive line. This line was capable of firing shells all the way to Cologne. What the Germans did was fly with gliders towards these forts and plant a sort of upside down mine on it and let it explode inwards, dismantling the artillery.

The Belgiums were cunts to the French (pretty much everyone) because during the peace talks no one really listened to them, eventhough they were hurt the most. So they denied the plans to further extend the maginot line on their soil.
>>
>>100066488
That's enough to make it senshado-legal for an hipotetical school based upon them.

Also, being comparable to a late war Panzer IV about 1 year before there were late war Panzer IVs is somewhat impressive... not VERY impressive, but at least a little.
>>
>>100068816
Everyone went full retarded during the prewar. It was like they were asking Germany to go and rape them.

The one at the Intrepid is an A-12 instead of an SR-71, so it's technically not a Blackbird.
