>"Erika's pride" by Saitaniya Ryouichi
Enemy's approaching at 2 o'clock! Distance 800.
Place us like bento while facing 2! Rotate the hull!
Hurry, load armor piercing!
To shoot while moving!
Enemy's in sights!
Hitoyoshi municipal elementary school
Just what you'd expect from Erika-chan! Consecutive victory!
Which time is it?
When Erika-chan is commanding, don't think about losing!
The enemy was simply too weak!
We still have a long way to go.
My elementary school senshado team...
As expected, captain!
... won the match against other school!
Wherever I go, I'm peerless!
The more I win, the more
Everyone acknowledges me as a captain.
The voices of my friends after we win are the best!
>These certainly make me appreciate swiss Momo and co even more.
I like them a lot too.
Wanna go to "Youth Class" team?
I'll go! Absolutely let me go!
Well aren't you loud...
You only have classic senshado before middle school.
I'm already tired from what you can do with elementary school team!
I do think that your abilities are very strong for your age.
Well, that might be so.
I also think that real "strength" isn't only about winning in the match.
So with that in mind
It would be good for you to go to a new stage and gain new experiences.
Don't worry. Wherever I'll go, I won't lose!
Ha-ha... That's ensuring...
Kuromorimine Academy Associated
Senshado Youth Team recruitment
Well then, welcome to our new recruits!
Let's have a mock battle right away.
10 new members vs 10 old members, same tank type
will be Erika-san.
Just what I wanted!
Opposing side will be
commanded by the captain.
Hm? There is one line on her collar tab.
Does that mean she's a first year?
First year is the captain? What does it mean?
As a handicap, we will go with the second team.
>translated, as intended.
Could you be convinced to translate more chapters of either GuP Antology if I promise to place typesetting them at the very top of my to-do list, Anon?
Then, everyone get ready
What do they take my command for? I'll show them!!
In less than 15 minutes, 10 tanks...
Is this the difference between "youth team" and elementary schooler?
Besides, on senpai's side
Only 1 tank was immobilized.
You put up a good fight for a kid.
Yeah, I can try to do first chapters at least.
Just as a "this is what's done so far" info, have a list of what's already done of CA 1, in case you decide to do more than the first chapter.
Nice. I was really confused about what is translated.
But against Kuromorimine Youth Team captain, Nishizumi Maho-sama...
Earlier match was amazing, right?
To think there was a monster like that in Youth Class.
We are beginners in a lot of ways, so it can't be helped...
Be quiet for awhile!
Next time we'll win for sure!
Hey newbie! Don't break the formation~
That Itsumi girl is quiet lately.
Is it because of the recent match?
Well, who knows...
Nothing but plain practice lately...
No matter what, it won't be like the last time!
Next time for sure, I will win!
She belongs to Maho, but she likes Miho in a more intimate way.
Could you possibly have a match with me now?
Haven't we already?
I can't be content with that!
Please let me do it one more time!
She can be a good friend to Miho-san from before. Pretty interesting girl.
Why not? I'll accompany you once more.
Great! This time I'm thoroughly prepared about rules!
Let's do 5 vs 5 now.
If you have no questions, get serious.
We always play for the win!
Maybe she can. Look at Maho's hand, she is really holding Erika like she belongs to her.
I'm going to win this time!
Quite the talker, this year's newbie.
Maho-sama, why did you accept the challenge?
I'm pretty fond of such straightforward personality.
By the way, I don't know what she means about the rules. Haven't Maho proposed 5vs5 herself?
All enemy tanks destroyed.
We lost... one?
Newbie's not bad.
I lost again.
I even changed changed the rules thinking I could win...
Despite everything, I got beaten into the ground.
That senpai is unbelievable.
I feel like I can't win no matter what I do.
Did I come to a place like this?
Notice how Maho is impressed, but Erika herself hates it. The theme of "pride" is indeed strong here. Prideful person will always blame themselves in every situation, because they judge themselves by very high standards. That's why LN version of Erika drowning but blaming Miho is not consistent with her character.
Itsumi-san's eyes were all red inside the tank!
Who would have thought Itsumi-san can be so shaken up?
Well, it's like this.
Erika-chan got carried away too much until now.
Serves her right.
She is so full of herself.
Thinks we're below her too.
Isn't that too mean?
What was said,
Cannot be taken back.
LN Erika drowning but blaming Miho for running away after defeat caued by the incident (as oppossed to herself staying after taking part in same incident) is actually consistent with prideful character. "Look, weakling, I stay while you run". Not saying I particularly like that twist, juts pointing out the one thing of it that's actually consistent (lots of other things aren't).
To laugh at someone who fought with all their might behind their back!
Have you no shame!?
Making fun of someone with calm faces is vulgar!
Trying alone and failing is thousand times more worthy!
If you want to continue Senshado from now on
Search for the truth by yourselves!
And struggle for real too!
Like Itsumi did!
Ni.. Nishizumi... senpai
Bad news: no Miho or Maho yet.
Good news: this
fuck forgot quote
Tina is that you?
Forgot the picture.
I never thought about things like that before.
Why did I practice Senshado until now?
Maybe to see if I'm strong.
Maybe to feel good about winning.
Never heard about searching the truth.
Is it because Nishizumi-senpai has that, she's so strong?
She was like a woman possessed!
I'm not even in the first class.
It's like we can't even be compared.
I don't understand things like my truth or my pride that well, but...
The meaning of "strength"
If I'm with that person, I will find it for sure!
With Captain Nishizumi!
Daily Girls Und Panzer threads? I'm down for that. Also Nonna best girl.
And it's done.
1st years, stand in two rows!
Now we'll start full practice with new recruits!
One by one, say your name and rank!

A story from a while back...
Hide your women, the mongols are coming.
>pravda will never see through our disguise
>100% slav certified abibas
Is that why Nina stronk?
Nina could easily fuck up a bear.
Who would have been Hitler's favorite girl? Remember, he was a pretty chill dude - took amphetamines, drew paintings, looked at girls taking crap from below the glass, played with his dog.
Please do not bully Nina or the loaders for that matter.
Every time I told my friend that Japanese businessman like to lay below a glass table and look at woman taking crap while squatting on top of it she told me "Hitler liked that too". I have no idea if it's true. But we agreed that Hitler was pretty cool.
She's kind of easy to bully because she thinks she's hot shit but life continues to shovel shit in her face. Even if I make jokes about her in every thread, I like her very much, basically I'm just being tsun.
Why she's so perfect?
She's based off this dude. Are you still surprised?
They're just a great set of girls, and they look so comfy.
God bless the Finns.
>life continues to shovel shit in her face
She won in LA2, verey surprisingly. By the way, what happened? Did her gunner just shot better? That's not very interesting conclusion. But I guess you can't come up with a crazy finale every time.
Soviets themselves were advised to fight untill they are killed or kill themselves rather than getting captured due to being scared of concentration camps, plus revealing info was considered a treacherous act, after returning from German imprisonment in 1945 you would go to gulag instead.
Towels? In a sauna? What is this blasphemy?
>God bless the Finns.
God bless the Finns indeed, they did the world a favour by buying up the Dutch Leopard 2s.
One of the better deals the FDF has ever made. iirc the Dutch regretted selling them when things heated up in Ukraine.
>iirc the Dutch regretted selling them when things heated up in Ukraine.
To be fair, most their citizens used to have an uncaring attitude about their military (a Dutch guy I asked went "so what we do literally nothing with them") and their government fell for the cost-cutting meme until MH17 happened.
>that cute apparent habit of closing one eye and smiling
My god Mika, STOP
In northern Sweden they put the drive-ins closer to the ground to make it easier to order food from a snowscooter.
Do you think they put the windows higer up on School-ship resturaunts because students order food from tanks?
Why is Oroyu flashing her panties to everyone?
Wish I can come up with an answer.
Isn't going to happen for a while, the Leopard 2A7 just entered service after many years of wrangling around with concepts.
This picture pretty much explained some of the key differences it had over the Leopard 2A6.
We'll see how long it'll take before the project implodes due to disagreements over even the most basic of things.
Like the one that resulted in both the Typhoon and the Rafale.
Why is the Wehraboo sitting on a limey tank?
>The 2A7 has a number of survivability enhancements including the latest generation passive armour and belly armour providing protection against mines and improvised explosive devices. It is also fitted for, but not with, additional passive side protection armour. (The attachment points are on the slots above the third and fourth roadwheels.)
>Other significant changes include an auxiliary power unit allowing all subsystems to be run with the main engine switched off. It also has an air-conditioning system for the crew and turret electronics and all-electric gun-control equipment. (If I'm not mistaken the grilled part located on the rear above the drive sprocket in the picture.)
>The commander is provided with a new roof-mounted stabilised panoramic sight that includes a third-generation thermal imager, laser rangefinder, and charge coupled device camera. The gunner also has a third-generation thermal sight.
>It is equipped with IFIS, a command and weapon deployment system for command support from group to battalion level. It enables the connection of the vehicle sensors and the vehicle data into a network-based operation.
Because both countries are full of xenophobic, depressed, anti-social autists.
They're basicaly the best countries ever.
I want a SoL focusing solely on the Finns and their cozy day to day adventures..
At least it's happening compared to you know, this.
>Pretty much most MBT had them
More than that, most of the western cold war tanks have literally the same gun
>L7 105 mm early
>Reinmetall 120 mm later
You can see it on picrelated.
That or the Soviet/Russia 2A46 125 mm.
I want animated Maginot OVA.
The_chieftain who is part of WoT's staff asked these questions to the GuP producer but it was in november so, perhaps the producer would change his mind after knowing the movie made 800 million yen?
>playing tank games with controllers
>keyboard clearly visible
>a mouse is surely nearby
we just aren't close to their levels
Miho was killed by Fleshpound.
LN Erika is the one who issued the command that led to her tank getting dunk'd, then finding out her savior abandoned her.
Manga Erika was really angry about Miho running away moreso than the loss itself (shouting about the effects that kind of abandonment had on her comrades back at their school, alongside them having to see Miho pop up as an enemy commander during the bracket drafts).
Both instances have her seeing her friend run away (from the school and sport itself) rather than stay, take her lumps and continue onward. Erika was placed into the vice commander position by Maho knowing full well she was just a Miho replacement who couldn't match up.
It's all pretty consistent, really. Though I wonder if LN Erika had to endure the "silent bullying" that made some of the drowning survivors transfer out of the school
which served as Miho's motivation for leaving as wellaccording to the manga.
Pretty much. Though the biggest question from the German/France project would be the matter of autoloaders.
Another shot of the Leopard 2A7 with the APU clearly shown.
A combination of cost-cutting and the fact that the Challenger 2 was deemed an export failure so they basically stopped trying to evolve it further. Smoothbore gun has been dropped from upgrades due to cost since they need a new turret.
That sucks. I really like how the Chally looks.
To be fair they can't do much when there are large numbers of used (and cheaper) Leopard 2s and M1 Abrams on the market, with their respective countries willing to rebuild them to newer standards.
In fact, most if not all of the Leopard 2A7s (about 20 of them) that entered service were rebuilt from the Dutch Leopard 2A6es that did not go to Finland.
>by adding more crazy things... the entire premise becomes more acceptable
You make good points about her personality actually. Maybe I reconsider. I made collage from the manga to illustrate the problem. If the movie ignores the LN version like TV series did, it's probably not canon, but maybe it will actually confirm it.
That's not the M1A3, that's one of the CATTB prototypes, probably one of the later "Block III" models.
>CATTB – Experimental model with a 140 mm smoothbore gun, heavy armored turret and upgraded hull based on the M1's chassis. It had a mechanical loading system in turret bustle, a new engine and probably other upgrades, never fielded. The tank went into trials in 1987–1988. CATTB stands for Component Advanced Technology Test Bed.
The bigger (and heavier) 140mm cannon and auto-loader explains the giant turret bustle. I have doubts they'd be transporting the new M1A3 variant out in the open like that.
I didn't want to make explicit conclusions, it's up to the reader. Some people suggested she was.
>Nishizumi-dono, do you believe love can bloom on the battlefield?
>Pravda is working on a new research. A weapon to surpass Maus Gear.
>The hymen I've lost, the comrades I've lost. It won't stop hurting. It's like they're all still there!
>This is the best tank made by men. 88 mm, more than enough to pierce any armor!
>Nee-chan, we weren't just tools! Yes, we followed orders, but we fought for what we believed in!
>Bonple sent us to hell, but we're going even deeper! Take back everything we've lost!
>Rin, I'm already a lesbian.
You know, I usually imagine Hime being voiced by Kawasumi Ayako (Saber) since I'm used to to the way she says "Rin" with her calm voice.
They did develop the GE/Honeywell LV100-5 to use in the Crusader and Abrams. It was smaller, lighter, and used some 50% less parts. Crusader got canceled, so the engine hasn't seen production yet.
Sugoi monogatari, onii-chan.
To do Rabu Rabbu. You know, the manga that is NOT the one you quoted.
Hint: All the trully silly web4komas with raging lesbo Hana, raging imoutolesbobsessed Maho, sad Erika cosplaying as Miho, Darjeeling appearing uninvited, Nonna slipping drugs to Katyusha... are from the Lovey Dovey Panzer webcomic. The ones of Rabu Rabu are either "tame" web4komas, or not in web4koma ormat.
Actually that is an obscure meme.
When you press all the keys in the top two rolls of your keyboard, you get qawsedrftgyhujikolp.
In Japanese, it turn into くぁwせdrftgyふじこlp
And it is pronounced:
Ku ~a w se drftgy Fujiko lp
One that note, One Punch Man manga and Anime has Lightning Max pronounce it when he was surprised by Deep Sea King. The key to the meme is that "Fujiko" appears in the middle.
well anon, thats ok and as it is your opinion, I will accept it as this.
if you're talking shit again I will find you and subject you to intense reeducation
Having an auto-loader can lead to smaller turrets because you can eliminate a crew in the turret. If you're still crewing the turret, adding an auto-loader makes things even bigger.
>By the way, I don't know what she means about the rules.
I think it means she's chosen less people (let's say less of former game's players on Maho's side and less of former game's players on her side - she likely blames part of in on the difference of skill of others, surely thinking the ones of Maho's team were "help" for Maho while the ones of her team are "baggage" for her. Remember, at this point, her pride doesn't let accept Mah is THAT MUCH better than her)
If so, "the rules" would mean "the norms for this game" (number of players, place of the fight, and other arrangements, etc).
Maybe Proofreader Anon will think of a way to write it better in English.
Well, that's pretty much what it is. In the english language its pronounciation changes wildly depending on the context. On its own it's a sort of "kyu", but in the context of the queen example in >>135949130, it's pronounced as "kw". Context is key in the english language, though it's often random and detached from the written form.
For example, I don't know how you get an "ei" sound from the letter A, and then go on saying "tarp" instead of "teirp". Or how the letter E is a long "i" to you on its own and in the word "lead" (clue), but a short "e" in the word "lead" (metal). In both of these words the letter E is also followed by a seemingly silent A.
Maybe this would all make more sense if I was a linguist and we were having this discussion in real life. I'm actually not sure if the above makes any sense at all to you, since I'm not a native english speaker.
I'm guessing Anzu's specialty is cured sweet potatoes.
>Maybe this would all make more sense if I was a linguist
It would make sense if you'd remember the 14th-century Bongs changed the way they spoke but didn't bother to change the way they wrote. In two words, they're nuts
I am a native English speaker and readily admit that English is a bastardized, fuck-ugly abomination of a language when it comes to consistent pronunciation and certain rules.
Still a prettier language to listen to and write than any Chinese variant, though
