Girls Und Panzer: The Panzer Continues
Movie & Anzio OVA speculation, tank talk etc.
Old thread: >>100123088
meant to post this one before image cap
Cute girls on adorable pre-dreadnaughts when?
So what's the new OVA about again?
Is it the long promised Anchovy OVA?
>Both UK and Japanese flag on it
What the absolute fuck is this shit?
It's the Mikasa, so it is japanese... perhaps the flag of the country they visit?
It was unavoidable, wasn't it?
And in the meantime there will be enoug funny stuff i think.
I find it odd how the Heer using captured equipment is frequently mentioned, but the Allies using captured stuff is hardly ever brought up.
Is that manga not cute girls on pre-dreads? Damnit.
It's also annoying that the Japs have the only existing pre-dread battleship.
It's the Anzio battle yeah. Have you been living under a rock for the past couple of months?
No idea, but the Japanese and British did have close relations in the late Victorian era, and that extended to naval vessels in a major way.
>perhaps the flag of the country they visit?
>Allies using captured stuff
I think that, for the Anzio OVA, the guys who make the series will troll us all.
How, you ask?
Well, maybe instead of showing us Oarai vs. Anzio, like everybody expects, they will show us Anzio vs. Maginot (A.K.A. the first round match).
After all, between everyone calling this the 'Anzio OVA', the series' creators apparently mentioning somewhere that the events on it would be 'different from those on the manga' or something like that and, IIRC, a... commercial? Ad? Anyway, one such thing in the last page of one of the spinoff manga showing an Anzio student (possibly Anchovy, can't recall exactly) and someone with a rather French-looking uniform (beret included) that hadn't been shown before...
What other conclusion would you get from that?
As cool as that would be, this seems like a crack-theory.
Just because the events won't be the same as in the manga doesn't mean they'll pull a complete change like that, just that the way the battle pans out will change.
Plus they've introduced Earl Grey in an ad like that I think, that doesn't mean she'll be something major. And berets are a good generic piece of tanker headwear, though I have to admit I don't know if the Italians use(d) them.
Earl Grey is old news
I only found out about her recently. When did she make an appearance?
Why, do you hate American tanks?
She never did despite being best-Glorianna girl
As in, when did that page come out? What does it say?
In that pic ypu posted. Much like pic related
so long ago I don't even remember, late 2012 if memory serves well
she is Glorianna's former commander and Darjeeling's sempai
Does anyone else feel really bad for Anchovy and her crew?
I mean, think about it, Anzio High School isn't just some dinky little school, it's world-renown!
Their Culinary Club wins cooking competitions all the time with their Italian cuisine, and they are always a favorite in the world championship.
Their Art Club holds some of the greatest young artists the world has seen, working in the line of Leonardo and Michelangelo, and is almost always going through a "Renaissance" of sorts.
Their Theology Club has its work published around the world and they're even called on by the Pope to give their opinion on some religious matter of other.
But their Sensha-do Club? Well... It ain't their fault the best tank they have is the P.40... They try just as hard as the other clubs, but when the majority of your tanks are actually tankettes...
I just feel bad for them, that's all.
Which team is this?
Is War of the Human Tanks actually a good game? /v/ hates it because >anime so I'm asking here, was considering buying it.
They could just go ahead, get some german tanks and slap italian markings on them, no one's stopping, apart from "muh italian heritage"
Sucks to be stuck with a heritage that can't provide armor that stands a chance.
Chihatan Academy. Japanese-themed.
Did she ever had any presence at all at the animo? I just remember her shaking her clutched fist for 3 seconds and then changing scene.
I'm really interested how they won against Maginot. I mean sure, using Magiot as a name is a dead giveaway how retarded the french team has to be, but still.
Then what is the theme of Oarai High? I was led to believe it was jap themed.
Ooarai is mixed
From where all this info comes from? I only remember doing what this guy said >>100191042
It had no theme to speak of, which kind of killed any chances of it securing funding from any nation that financed the other academy ships.
Especially given that pic-related should be impenetrable to anything Anzio could throw at them
having 2 japanese tanks makes you japanese themed? They have 4 german tanks in comparison.
It's theme is "We have no one funding us so we're going to use whatever the fuck we can find"
can girls and panzer be considered a sport anime ?
good lord their head s arehuge
you sure the P40 wouldn't be able to handle a Char B1?
I wasn't talking about the tanks. I was talking about the culture of the girls.
It can't just be considered one, it is one. Shensha-do is a sport.
They have no national theme, just a varied mix of tanks.
They do have, however, the underdog theme.
The anchovy fight was skipped in the animu, but it was covered in the mango.
they are all japanese, Anon. All of them.
Well, now that I think of it, the 75/34 cannon should be able to penetrate the B1 from the sides and rear.
So yeah, the P.40 in theory could take out the B1, but one hit from the B1 is probably enough to take the P.40 out
want shensa-do a martial art
I'm pretty sure the P40 could take on the B1, tho what it seems, Anzio only has one P40, and we have not the slightest idea of Maginot's lineup.
Still, I think Anzio were the underdogs that match.
What is the OTP of the show?
Maginot could a swell field R-39 or H-35, which aren't great tanks neither.
B1's or Somuas would be a whole different category.
By the anime's timeline, Ooarai might not have the B1 operational. Need to doublecheck to see if Yukari/Erwin/Aya were shown at the end of that episode.
It's a shame France lost so fast in WW2. I mean look at this little fucker, it was pretty innovative for its time.
They're talking about Maginot, not Oarai
what are they saying?
Erika is love!
How did people saw that, is beyond me.
Yuzu talks to Momo as if she was her girlfriend.
why is saki so pure
That's not purity, anon.
They should make an OVA or a movie about the Rabbit team during the finals.
They went for a very weak team to one that did amazing in the finals.
Yurkari x Miho, although I can seen the appeal of Yukari x Erwin.
Oh, and Naomi x Everyone
I thought that was the germans doing commando work with panthers.
Now that's a real treat.
Both the P40 and the 75mm-armed Semoventes (basically, a Stug III with the serials filed off) can handle the B1. Italian armor is bad, but not THAT bad
So, uh, not sure if I'm late, but I just found this and... and wow...
The B1's 75mm was a short-barreled, low-velocity howitzer with very poor AP performance - in fact I'd have to check if it had AP ammo *at all*. Its medium-speed 47mm gun was roughly comparable -maybe a bit better- to the similar guns of the Japanese and Italian tanks, and those had considerable difficulty penetrating a Sherman's armor (to which the P40 had comparable protection). Both tanks would likely have to go for the sides; P40 is faster.
TL;DR: B1 is actually slightly disadvantaged against the P40.
A sporting martial art like judo or boxing that gets shown in TV, to be exact.
Yukari x Panzer 38(t)
Now serious, it's Sodoko x Mako.
I knew it existed but I hadn't seen the whole thing until now.
This is way more arousing than it has any right to be...
The fuck is Kay's debriefing?
>Sodoko x Mako.
I don't know what was funier to watch: if the yuri haters having a seizure at pic related being official or the yurifags having a seizure at they being beaten to the joke
Holy shit, you just made my night.
Part one for anyone who hasn't seen it yet:
On the theme of captured German equipment: http://www.wio.ru/tank/capt/capt.htm
heeey, thats my translation!
Exactly under which literal rock... no, over which literal rock mountain have you built your enclosed monastery, gentle and pious Anon, not to have ever heard the joke that when Key tells Alice that she'll "debrief" her in episode 6 she surely means picture related?
What... Where did you all get that from?
Sometimes a debrief is just a debrief
I want to be Yukaris buddy
>Still no tonks in War Thunder
I want to stay up late and talk about tanks with her, then wake her up with a hot cup of tea before spending the rest of the day scale modelling.
Am I a bad person?
What was that mango name of the author the GuP adaptation that it's about planes?
meant to quote
No, but you're also not her Nishizumi-dono.
A series about planes by one of the creators of GuP? That would be Strike Witches.
Yes, you're an awful person, you didn't even offer to take her to the movies to see the new war-movie that just came out where you could spend a couple of hours in the dark doing nothing but holding hands
>Yukari x Panzer 38(t)
No, no. It was new. Champion something or something RED.
Katyusha x KV2-tan
I will never understand Miho X Maho.
Miho X Yukari makes much more sense.
Are Miho X Maho people the same that ship Saki X Teru, when there is Nodoka and Awai?
Ooarai/Saunders Beach OVA when?
You have no idea.
Because it's adorable, that's why
Do you think senshadō is an Olympic sport in that universe?
>tiny short barelled gun
>looking like most other french interwar tanks
Care to elaborate on what makes it innovative?
>Slant-armor that'd make a T-34 jealous
You've clearly never read Little Army.
Maho will do anything for her little sister.
>find it odd how the Heer using captured equipment is frequently mentioned, but the Allies using captured stuff is hardly ever brought up.
Extremely late reply, but the reason the Western Allies didn't use captured equipment was because they didn't need to. Whole different set of logistics, repair knowledge etc. It also greatly increased friendly fire risks. The Russians on the other hand by wars end had entire divisions of German tanks they took from the field and repaired.
I do know an American crew DID in fact use at least 1 captured Panther for quite some time, its been documented and photographs exist along with the story but it was risky due to the high chance of friendly fire from roving fighter bombers. They also used plenty of captured German field artillery and gave it to guys with the instructions of "figure out how to use it."
All that JUSTICE!
Kay does have a healthy endowment of LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Better late than never, thanks! I suppose having a panzerfaust or two is a lot less risky than being inside something your allies first response to will be to shoot it.
Naomi in a one-piece swimsuit...
Maybe it's the perspective but LEGS FOR DAYS
I think the French managed to get Panthers and Tigers running.
I'm not sure about during the war, but after WWII, the French used a lot of Panthers to fill out their army.
They had a couple of captured Tigers and Panthers (one of them was abandoned literally intact), if I'm not mistaken.
That means punishment by futa arep.
It provided a textbook example of how NOT to design a tank.
"Its time" being 1920-30.
>Sucks to be stuck with a heritage that can't provide armor that stands a chance.
I know, right?
Yeah, France used Panthers until at least 1955.
Syrians still had Pz IV Hs, mostly for static defense in 1967.
Russians loved to use captured panzerfausts and they were one of the priority objects of looting.
They designed the RPG-2 based off of it.
Seeing as the T34 was being used in Bosnia in the 90s, this does not surprise me.
M4 Sherman was an excellent platform for what it was designed for, infantry support. American doctrine at the time was for tanks to exploit breakthroughs with the infantry, fighter bombers and TD units were to deal with enemy armor.
All the frontal protection in the world doesn't mean jack shit when they build over 20,000 Mustangs and Thunderbolts
To be fair, it was by far and away the most common Eastern Block tank that the Russians gave Warsaw Pact members, after the T5-55/54
What... What is it?
Where is her skirt?
>type out the multitude of faults with the tank
>Error: Field too long
I notice you're not decked out with that hackneyed armor kit jerry-rigged from a Panther hull. You're STILL an easy kill, even frontally.
Yes, and the Murricans paid dearly for their pants-on-head retarded armor doctrine. Fighter-bombers didn't accomplish anything aside from incurring more losses than they inflicted on tanks.
Give me my sexy-elegance fix, Darjeeling

You'll notice that none of those aren't even for the FCM 36, which is the tank we're talking about.
My friend, my friend.
I commend your work. It's obvious that you put a great deal of effort into this?
What tank did you think we were talking about? I'm sure your list still applies to THAT tank.
H35 and the derivatives H38 and H39. I just gave the thumbnail a cursory glance...
Is that guy who promised us the trapfic still around?
Is the thread autosaging already?
It's gotta touch 500 posts before it'll do that.
Suki looks surprised there.
As if she just realized why she is there
Don't tell me the thread's already dead...!
Only if you hate freedom
id handle her freedom
if you know whad i meen
Reposting volumes 1 - 8 of the manga one more time for those who missed them.
No. You really should make yourself clearer Anon.
i want to free her slaves
i want to liberate her rights
i want to snipe her jfk
i want to find her osama and blow it to smithereens
i want to ronald her mcdonald with grimace
i want to statue her liberty

So, I take it nobody wants to work on this manga?
Here comes the Slavshit
I somehow completely missed this thread.
Armored Highschool translations are happening. I dumped them here >>100214432
You going to shove them on the /ak/ wiki at some point?
Ground Forces is in closed beta.
>engine that gave it a huge autonomy
Even now,. some may laugh at the French's armor doctrine, but it's great for quick deployment and ambush tactics against a superior force.
The tank was almost entirely electro-welded except for the engine which was bolted to the chassis. Check your sources bro.
>slow as shit
>awful anti armor capability
If the "superior force" consists of armored cars, yeah, sure.
I never said it was a good tank. You wanted to know what made it so innovative.
>Literally sucking off the tanks creator
>B-B-B-But i never said it was good!
>feels the need to have the last word

Eh, could be worse.
"great for quick deployment and ambush tactics against a superior force"
"I never said it was a good tank"
M4's rekt shit in the PTO!
Otherwise yes, I love the fact that they lit up like a Christmas tree when hit.
I also loved that the brits actually tried to make it worthy, and made the Firefly which was good, (just look at these happy germans driving one) but the Americans still didn't want them because of their armor doctrine. I mean, tanks surely don't fight tanks, only tank destroyers, amirite?
Cute PMCs doing PMC things? I'd watch it.
Why is Yukari crying?
Man, Katyusha sure is a thoughtful girl.
>long list of things about every tank of its age had
>let's leave out the things that WERE innovative
He's right though.
German tank losses by allied planes are vastly overestimated.
>(one of them was abandoned literally intact)
Might be this one:
You realize most if not all tanks of its time also had overworked crews, slow speed and pitiful funs, do you? What's next, criticising it for not having ERA-covered Chobbam?
Why does Mako have a dakimakura of herself?
Anzu made her model for it, so it's only right she get one of the first production run.
Kaichou is stern, but also fair.
Also all the German WWII tanks we have in our tank museum in Thun were gifts from France
Raws for the latest GuP chapter just came. No time to scan right now tough, but have a flying Miho in the meantime
Momo got the book already, said he was scanning asap.
I'm not sure if I'm amused or not.
I pick not.
so at this point they are just copying the anime frame by frame.
I'd guess for the same reason Yukari also has one of herself
captcha the roneri. I shit you not
I wonder when we'll have a 4koma about Hana's or Saori's dakis
Why can't i hold all this yuri
Oh boy, does the movie/OVA has a release date yet?
still just spring for the OVA and winter for the movie.
oh, can't wait.
I need more Yukari yuri antics.
Didn't the nips buy Cheburashka from the Russians or something like that?
Btw, who TL'd the Tank corners?
I shouldn't be laughing at the TL notes.
Fuck you, T-34-85 > Panther.
>T-34-85 > Panther
If anyone's up for some reading, here's something on the performance of T-34's in WWII.
Don't start this.
Let's say they were roughly equivalents with each other outperforming the other in just small things with neither being clearly on top
Armor: Panther better frontal but FAR worse sides, they both could penetrate each other's frontal armor at short ranges
Gun: Panther better AP capability but worse HE load, they both were adequate nonetheless in both tanks
Gun range: Both over 2000 m (read: more than enough)
Speed: 2 Km/h difference (negligible)
T-34 had better cross-country performance, Panther had better engine reliability, both were at first plagued by general mechanical problems that were both solved in later models...
Hint: The Panther was a german copycat (pun intended) of the T-34-76 with a better gun and turret layout. The T-34-85 was a T-34-76 with a Russian copy of the German turret - similar gun included. Small wonder they are similar, then...
The most important point.
Panther is fucking ugly, the T-34 is beautiful
Which one, /a/?
>Try getting into tanks
>Keep forgetting the names and which tank is which
HOW DO YOU GUYS DO THIS.
For most of us it was the other way around.
The T-34/85 might have been a rough equivalent to the Panther (no small wonder, germans upgunned their T-34 copy, if the soviets upgunned theirs, they'd end up with the same), but the retarded way they were employed resulted in what you can read here: >>100228629
82% of the T-34's produced was left on the battlefield while germans maintained a 3:1 ratio during the war.
XAXAXAXAXAXA. No.The Panther has to be most beautiful thing produced during WWII.
Not that anon, but nigga, pls.
Just look at that fine welding of the turret. If a german factory worker saw that, he'd break down crying.
>but the retarded way they were employed resulted in...
Not the tank's fault
You're reading that in Yukari's voice
>most beautiful thing produced during WWII.
Holy shit, what the hell is that?
Yeah, Germans should apologize for destroying so many.
Stopped reading there.
Cat nose AND reindeer costume?
>implying it has a single relation to that show
Well, the retarded name already suggests that it's full of stupid shit, so there's no point in continuing anyways.
It just implies that it's gonna say the direct opposite of what's believed by the general public. In this case, the T-34's performance.
I know how you feel. I'm in the same boat as you.
At least I can name a fair few albeit mostly more well known ones if I see a picture of them.
Daijobu, Anon. This is a schools-regulation polite GuP thread
Exactly what it says. The most beautiful tank EVER
Google "Bob Semple Tank"
I guess you aren't from a n English-speaking country if you haven't recognised Rupert's nose
I dislike GuP, but very relevant to thread.
Rupert? I thought it was Rudolph
I didn't mean the nose on the reindeer hat but the additional one on Erika's own nose. It has whiskers.
I think that was supposed to be another reindeer nose. I guess it doesn't really make sense to have two noses, but 'tis the season.
>Parroting long debunked myths.
>after the cause of fires was identified and fixed only about one in ten knockouts resulted in fire
>the british never fixed the cause of the fires (a bad ammo storage layout)

>Americans gave their fireflys to the British for supply line integrity, just like how captured tanks were grouped together
Nope, it was Raymond
>could not knock out*
>>76mm armed Shermans were effective against almost all German armor, the stuff it could knock out could not be done in by a 17pounder
>The new 76mm gun represented a modest increase in anti-tank performance, bringing the 76mm Shermans up to rough parity with the PzIV and StuG III (the most commonly encountered German tanks) at combat ranges. However, it remained incompetent against the frontal armor of the Panther and Tiger, eventually necessitating the Sherman Firefly (equipped with the excellent 17 pounder gun) be developed to counter them.
Your dellusion is staggering.
I've been going through my Garupan folder and there are so many great memories. I can't believe it's already been a year.
Why are you baiting a perfectly good thread?
>That guy that comes over and hugs him.
Garupan taught me to feel about tanks
>one in ten
That's still somewhat high. A Tiger caught fire only once in 15-20 knockouts (source: Otto Motherfucking Carius)
>76 M1 being as powerful as a 17 Pdr
El 28 de diciembre ya ha sido, and there's still long months for April First. Err, I mean... (polite thread, polite thread) Sorry, Anon. The ballistic data seems to indicate otherwise (standard AP round for the M1 was able to penetrate only about 90mm vs 130 of the 17 pdr)
>Americans gave their Fireflys to the British
Sure, Anon. Right along their tea, fish and chips. and double -decker buses, all of whom are exactly as an Amercan invenion as the Fireflies
Err, I mean... Nope, Anon. The Fireflies were a 100% British deal, that they offered to the Americans (who rejected tehm) and not vice-versa. It wasn't an up-gunning of the Sherman, it was placing a tank around the 17 pounder. The Sherman was used because they were around, as a stopgap (if highly sucessful) measure before a British tank carrying the 17pdr could be designed.
>all german armor consisted of Panthers and KingTigers
>your reading comprehension
>90mm vs 130
>b-but muh HVAP, rated for 140-150
Before someone mentions it... 76mm M4's had up to 4 when first issued to FL units, but then became as rare as hens teeth, with replacements next to zero. When averaged out over all US 76mm equipped AFVs, the distribution turned out to be about one round per vehicle per month. And even those had a tendency to bounce off the glacis of the Panther until 450 yards.
TL;DR: Good on paper, irrelevant in practise.
scanning the GuP raws now
This looks like Atelier Yukari
>It wasn't an up-gunning of the Sherman, it was placing a tank around the 17 pounder
This is what Britbongs actually believe. Let's face it, American tanks were the main platform for the 17 pdr until the Comet, which was introduced after most of the fighting was over and only came with a shortbarrelled version.
My fucking heart
>76 M1 being as powerful as a 17 Pdr
Never stated it was as powerful, just that most targets did not need the difference.
>Americans gave their Fireflys to the British
Yes there were indeed American Fireflys.
there were still more HVAP rounds available than targets
Here we go!
I don't even want to know how far she's jumping here....
/ak/ grade yuri googles!
>American tanks were the main platform for the 17 pdr
That's the point, you realize.
Note the Hetzer being intercepted in the first panel
Saki being Saki again
sorry for the small break, but just got a positive call for a job offer
Hana looks like she had some sexy time behind the tank.
Congratulations, hope everything will go good from there on.
V-Tech just kicked in yo!
>most targets did not need the difference.
If by "most targets" you mean "everthing from the ubiquitous Panzer upwards", then yes. You are plainly under the same mistaken mpression than the then-current US high command: that the Panzer was a scarce heavy tank. It was, in fact, the third most comon German vehicle produced all along the war, and after Normandy it was being produced and fielded in larger numbers than the Panzer IV. That meant that finding them was not a possibility, was a certainty.
And the Panther front was inmune to the 76mm M1 unless using usually unavailable AND unreliable HVAP ammo. The basic ammo for the 17 pdr was the Allied weapon of choice for the task.
Let's say it once again just to make it clear: the Americans made NO fireflies. Period. They made only M4 chassis. It were the Brits who used said chassis (after major turret modification) to carry their 17-pdr guns.
Kindly refer to the U.S. Army 1944 Firing Test No.1, whih concludes that HVAP, and I quote, can not "be depended upon to penetrate the glacis plate of the Panther in one fair hit on average quality plate."
Admit that you were wrong about the 76mm Sherman being a battlefield equivalent of its British-modified cousin and move on, Anon.
That should go in the TL
Maus out of fucking nowhere!
and done. Short chapter again this time, guess they split it in half again.
If you excuse me, I have to enjoy being high as a kite on dopamine~
>how far she's jumping here
About 21 meters.
Lesbian physics, you should know that.
This isn't what I was trying to achieve, pls. stop and let swiss Momo continue dumping the manga.
Dumping is finished, it's time to troll each other about it - errrr, to comment about it.
No, wait, I fucked up. It's about 6 meters.
>Dumping is finished
Fuck, I didn't even notice it.
The top view a few pages before shows it's a tank-wide (about 3m) and also a serious case of perspective trick
>Tank in the air
I don't care how much carbon it has in the lining, if a tank is in the fucking air, when it falls down someone, if not the entire crew, is going to die
Oh FUCK, WHY DID YOU MAKE ME REMEMBER THIS
German yuri technolgy is the best.
"Why are you still working? Everyone is out, aren't they? WHY ARE YOU STILL WORKING!?"

nah, she carries a regular rope with the towing cable bound to the other end, see >>100235464 and >>100235985

Isn't she Cute ?
I hope they die in Gulag.
Silly Soviet, the Gulags were only for killing off innocent Soviet citizens, including those who had fought in the war as partisans for the USSR.
can't argue with that
They'll be up on the /ak/ wiki some time later this week when I get the chance.
I'm not a soviet, my country was occupied by the soviets though.

fyi my country isn't considered as slavshit, I don't who are addressing to.
You are so desperate to be 'right' you do not realize that you have not actually disagreed with my claim that the 76mm was good against everything but the front of a Panther or KingTiger.
Basically to his ego. Ignore him as we do.
I can't even fix the obvious mistakes, fuck...
commiescum pls go
Alright, I don't actually watch this anime but I like you.
Did we have scans for the previous chapter?
yes, for everything expect the first half of chapter 15. They're only on the archive so far tough
No, no legitimately. Sorry, that was put in a rather baiting way but the question was honest. Or rather rhetorical, and a question on you opinion on such things.
"On May 28th 2005 while Germany's unconditional surrender was being commemorated, Estonia inaugurated in Tallinn a memorial to the glory of "those who perished in the fight for liberty", or to be more precise, those who had joined the 20th division of the Waffen SS." Robin-Maire, R., The Bifurcations of Memory in Politics of Collective Memory: Cultural Patterns of Commemorative Practices in Post-War Europe, Wahnich, S., Lasticova, B., Findor, A. (Eds.)
I've got an exam on the memory of WW2 in two Fridays time, so I was looking for opinions from other countries.
What happened to chapter 15? Did you lose it on the mail, or what? Actually wondering because I wasn't much online during that particular time (after and before, yes)
GuP threads are usually full of silly trolls trying to bait and polite tank lovers arguing about weathering kits.
Just that most times we all love to jump at each other's throats, just for fun. Wait, I'll show you:
"The Ka-Mi was the most sucessful amphibious tank of WWII and the Sherman was about the equivalent of the T-34".
3, 2, 1...
McNair did nothing wrong
Time for some elegance
>I don't actually watch this anime
You should. It's good.
Does that weathering kit shit really still work?
That reminds me, two questions to scale modellers:
1) I'm looking to use a filter on this thing as the camo colours are pretty different. Does anyone have any advice on working with filters/making your own?
2) What's the benefit of using oil washes over acrylic washes?
What the fuck is that?
>dat turret gap
I've always been of the opinion that it SHOULD have been the real poster of the series...
Not a panzer.
Judge by yourself
It isn't that bad is it? It does have a few too many layers on it yeah, but none of the detail's obscured, plus there's lots of stuff to do yet to improve it.
Working with an airbrush would be so much easier though...
Caesar can into elegance too.
Be careful with the filters, they are supposed to be of other tone that the colors you used, but not brighter or darker, it usually happens that you just end up darkening the colors when that's not the objective.
About washes, oil washes are better in my opinion, but only cause they have a more fluid consistency thanks to the thinner, also they have a longer dry time so you have more time to work and clean.
I think that's hard edge camo.
At least she had a spare swimsuit in that story after the first one..... deserted...
Commanding Majestic Glorious but not Elegant

Currently watching the Heartful Tank festival.
Has anyone been there? My moon is notgood enough to see past the Ankou God...
Translation: In the questions and answer skeet, what are the censored humorous answers that Yuka Iguchi (Mako's seiyuu) writes in her board?
Just finished building my Challenger I last week, sadly I realized we don't have a St. Gloriana's patch to place it with...
Also looking for my next build, any ideas? I have some time until my 1/700 Shiratsuyu arrives.
Build a Sherman and paint it with stars and stripes
Underage, pls. leave.
Got a Braille scale Revell Challenger 1 and I have to say 1/72 Revell stuff is pretty damn nice.
It's not panzer, but Maschinen Kreiger's damn cool.
Also, this guy gets it >>100245564
>studying at uni now makes you underage
A30 Challenger is mai tankfu
Seems you haven't watched it, so I'll ellaborate for you while waiting for someone who knows the answer.
In the "Heartful Tank Festival" GuP fan event, the seiyuus of Anglerfish and Turtle teams did a rather amusing half in character, half out of character. questions and answers number. (Obviously, the Council team girls were doing the questions, and unsurprisingly, the prizes were Oarai sweet dried potatoes). All the answers Yuka Iguchi (Mako's seiyuu) gave were silly jokes, and all but one of them were censored with animal noises and a floating icon of the Anglerfish God over half of what she wrote on her chalkboard.
So, has someone been in that fan event and knows what she actually wrote? The reactions were priceless...
A pleasure as always.
>1/72 Revell Challenger 1
Exactly my build, it's great.
God GuP is hitting hard in Japan.
Is that what she wrote or a comment about the sprite? Because both would make sense in context...
my own personal opinion.
The pleasure of something on my way inside.
I love them as VAs, but hell I wouldn't that 3D
The second joke
Personal experience of yours, I assume
Did you watch the picture dramas yet? especially the one were Yukari keeps saying German tank names
I don't know, maybe the one in the middle? >>100247089
>No money to get into modeling
>Would do a crappy job anyway
Nope, my moon is just marginal. Otherwise, I could likely have understood the jokes because of the context
That's Hana's (Mami Ozaki).
forgot third question pic
>Implying modeling it's expensive.
Also don't worry about doing a shit job, it isn't that difficult specially when you follow the proven step by step guide.
Only uncensored answer.
I have seen a lot of tank footage from Syria, but hell it's incredible to see the both sides in the same video.
Hey /ak/, though yall should know we got another patch projekt, this time It's touhou based.
So far we got 3 designs up and prob only able to produce one of them due to available funding.
too /jp/ for me, but cool
Did someone say PTSD?
also moot was messing with the cables.
I have several from the time when my parents were able to buy them for me, but now that I've grown up, I have no money to buy kits, they are rather expensive for the one time self-supporting college student.
I could always assemble them correctly and fine, but painting is a different story. I fucking suck at painting
>not wanting to do a Mai Fuchigami
are there any more like this? Girls und PTSD is just my type of thing.
>Girls und PTSD is just my type of thing.
Why don't people fund more cute girls doing cute things?
That's why I like small scale stuff- it's generally significantly cheaper than 1/35 stuff, and you can get away with shittier paint jobs.
On painting- keep the scheme simple, make judicious use of washes & pigments and most importantly have the patience to not make shortcuts and correct your mistakes.
Also, think your mother-fucking paints
That reminds me I was supposed to watch that air-combat based show this season, anyone is in?
Pilot's Love Song you mean? It's good so far, I never read the LN so it's kinda hard for me to imagine how it will go from SoL to suffering and misery. And death. Loads of death.
Do you mean a certain pilot's love song? Because that isn't really about combat.
love building 1/72 cause you only need 3 paint colors for it. Base color, black and a metallic one.
Paint it base color, details and wash it with black and then dry brush-it with metallic. Simple, they always end up looking good and it's a lot of fun.
That Pilot's love story thing? Watched the first episode and it has potential. Hopefully it doesn't get too hung up on romance and forced drama and focuses on exploring the sky and dogfights...
>Also, think your mother-fucking paints
yeah, that one I think.
And I thought it would be kind of an ace combat SoL... to be fair I only know it cause the season chart but yeah gonna give it a try, although I haven't seen any threads of it.
I built them since years and can not say something other than: practice.
Do some cheap, simple tanks at first, try simple things, basic color schemes.
Then, step by step try more complicated things like drybrushing, chipping, washes and so on. it's simply a matter of practicing.
I saw at least one thread a day, thing is, there isn't much to discuss right now because not much happened...
best GuP doujin ever
>Arisa conducting a Kay-style debriefing
I'm not sure I want this
Well, she's certainly been through enough of them to be familiar with the procedure.
I don't like this
Now that I think about it, regarding the home carriers/towns. Each team comes from a town based on a WWII aircraft carrier design, the only exception to this being Pravda, and for some odd reason Saunders. Considering the Soviet Union never had an aircraft carrier during the war, it is justified that they use a Kiev class, meanwhile, America had at least three different classes of Aircraft carriers during the war. Why are they using a Nimitz then?
Cause this isn't 1944 anymore, so they can afford more modern carriers. Some schools can't...
To represent Uncle Sam's deep pockets?
Better question: why does the french based academy lives on what looks like a giant submarine?
Because 'Murica has to have the biggest
I'm guessing they were too poor to convert the Charles De Gaulle to a school ship.
So that whenever the enemy comes they can say "Le Retreat!" and dive and swim away without having to fight.
Sure, they kill everyone on the top of the sub, but hey, they'd be dead anyways if they tried to fight anyone, right?
You know that logic sort of falls apart once you realize that these carriers are like 3 miles long and are more advanced than anything we have currently.
I doubt there's any real connection between what real life carrier they're stilled after and how advanced they are in universe; or rather if there is it's more on the creator's sense of aesthetics rather than the carriers being actually from World War 2 in universe.
It's probably a nuclear submarine
FIRE ZE MISSILES
But I am le tired
Jesus christ, why the fuck did I read that in their voices?
It's been at least a decade since I've last seen that video
of course there is no logic behind it, but hell I give the closer answer to a silly question.
Isn't it because it's based after a French submarine aircraft carrier?
Fuck that myth. Fuck it all to hell.
Verdun motherfucker. The Napoleonic Wars. The Franco-Prussian War.
Sure France might not have an overly successful record of actually winning wars, but the French fighting spirit isn't that bad.
It's based off of the Surcouf, which was classified as an "undersea cruiser", which carried a single airplane.
Because iconic, that's why
(Glorianna, Anzio, Koala, Maginot, etc. also don't use WWII aircraft carriers, but modern / unfinished / neever actually had it / WWI ones)
French submarine aircraft carrier gun cruiser. With pirates and ninjas.
Two back-to-back GuP threads full of interesting polite discussion? Who activated the time machine?
>getting fired up about a french joke
It's cyclic, after a while without new material only the few garupers are remaining, until the movie.
Cut him some slack. That joke has been so overused that even I (coming from a country historically rivaled with France) find it tiresome.
It's worse than all your base jokes.
We're talking about french military now?
New chapter when?
> a country historically rivaled with France
Why would anyone do that?
What most jokers fail to realize is that France's surrender in WWII was after it had already been defeated. Instead of futilely having every man killed off in a suicidal hopeless battle like Hitler. So, basically, they are criticising France for not being Nazis - all while bragging about they weren't nazis themselves. I know, it's retarded.
They wanted to get a bigger slice of Africa?
>He was one of the best commanders of light cavalry, as well as being intelligent, well-educated, and witty; yet, according to Jean Antoine Marbot, he posed as a libertine and ruffian who "might always be seen drinking, swearing, and smashing everything", carefully maintaining the hussar image and reputation. He also founded the "Society of Alcoholics", which shocked the high society of Paris (except for Napoleon). One evening Lasalle made Paul Thiébault count all the empty wine bottles. Thiébault asked "Do you want to kill yourself?” which prompted the famous reply from Lasalle: "My friend, any hussar who does not die by thirty is a blackguard..."
Because neighboours, that's why. Yanks and Cannucks do the same, I've been led to believe.
Not the pic I wanted to upload...
Presumably he's a Brit; we did kinda try to conquer France quite a bit. Then Protestants vs. Catholics. Then the Napoleonic Wars. Then squabbling over empires.
So, quite a few reasons.
>Suddenly all the Foreign Legion invades the thread.
Guys, it's a joke, no one actually think the Frenches are cowards...
I really have to build that 1/72 maus
The average American refuses to acknowledge Canada's sovereignty. The rest don't know where it is.
This needs to be TLed...
PSTD Miho please
This makes the Yukari cry.
Life is life, Panzer Panzer.
All this talk of wrecked tanks is making me think of ARVs.
Does anyone have any good photos of ARVs based off of the T-34? I know there's the WPT-34, the Czech VT-34 and something Polish based off of the SU-100 too. But there's some confusion on whether the Polish one is the WPT-34 or if this thing is.
Help me /ak/!
So what are the chances they're going to keep that part in the manga where 'Chovy tells Miho that the it's the duty of the commander to deliver victory to her subordinates?
That was like her defining moment.
Partially just answered my own question, the Polish one's the WPT SU100. Simple enough naming convention.
There's barely any photos of it though.
CZ based recovery vehicle VT-34:
The manga doesn't follow the anime, why would the anime follow the manga?
>implying that's a bad end for a military machine.
And I'm being serious about it. It's the single best end that a tank, plane or warship can have at the end of its career. In fact, I hope that when Panzer IV-sama and the others finally become no longer repairable after another half-century or more of being reliable warhorses, they are turned into reefs instead of being turned into slag.
You should improve your reading comprehension.
>not recognising the pasta
Cause giving Anchovy slightly more depth than "that uppity annoying bitch who's full of herself" would be cool.
Also because it IS her defining moment
Well I think it can be assumed that the will give her some sort of more developed characterisation, but expecting it to be the same characterisation as the manga's isn't really reasonable.
Feel bad for him.
sorry it's all I have, recovery vehicles receive little to no love... That said that website it's great so browse it around.
Well, >>100254627 quoted the *exact* line that was used when >>100253893 was posted. I asumed it was the same person.
I want a tankette.
Just to drive around like a car
Well, apart from omitting the Saunders fight and including the Anzio one there are no really big differences to the anime.
It was already said that the OVA isn't going to be an adaption of the manga battle IIRC, but I hope they keep manga Anchovy's personality. She's the closest thing to being Miho's arch enemy.
>It was already said that the OVA isn't going to be an adaption of the manga battle
[no, seriously, citation needed if that's true]
[really, first time I heard that... only thing I heard about OVA and movie was that movie was a continuation of series and OVA was not to be an exact copy of manga, not that it wasn't to follow it at all]
>mfw I was about to post that exact pic
The rest of the tank corners fucking when
I couldn't find the exact source, but I really doubt it's a disinformation campaign
that's the info I had. It says "different", not "ignoring it outright". I'd expect it to be about as different from the manga as the manga is from the anime, that is, I doubt they'll change the major point of Anchovie's personality...
If thoses who are interested, here are the selections

It's not a threat because it's likely in a repair depot.
nice, wish i was into /k/ stuff so i could know what this is about
Arracourt saw 75mm Shermans wrecking a larger amount of Panthers. Ended with 2:1 kd in favor of Shermans.
Isn't Tahou about those ship-style shooter games? what does >>100260912 mean or am I missing something?
This is just cross over fanart with Call of Duty series.
Fun fact: The girl with the rabbit ears in-universe is an ex-soldier from the moon. She's also noted for being the only character in the series to wear modern style clothing despite Touhou's ancient Japan setting and shooting bullets that look like modern bullets rather than nebulous energy balls.
I was pointing out how Mr. 2huPatch patch designs seem to be based off of the bunny girl's patches from this series of Touhou/Call of Duty crossover fanart .
On the topic of patches, my /ak/ patch arrived! Customs retained them and they arrived two months later on a sealed plastic back... That said I'm quite happy, thanks based Patchbro.
They are quite cool, sadly I am not into 2hu
>That M203 single mounted on the RIS
You are now on the national watchlist for being a neonazi
My thoughts exactly but whatever, the most probably is that was already on every watch-list here.
