Oh PLEASE....

Its historical fact that Marsailles wasnt sent to Afrika because he was good. He was sent their for being a worthless insubordinate drunkard playboy who missed most of his early operations due to him having hangovers. Even the JG52 wanted him gone.

As for "beating the Lufbery Circle", thats hardly a difinitive reason to say someones the best. The Lufberys been around since WWI, and the likelyhood that Marsailles was the first one to do it is highly unlikely, especially when you had aces like the Red Baron.

Hartmann on the other hand:

"Unlike Hans-Joachim Marseille, who was a marksman and expert in the art of deflection shooting, Hartmann was a master of stalk-and-ambush tactics. By his own account, he was convinced that 80% of the pilots he downed did not even realize what hit them. He relied on the powerful engine of his Bf-109 for high-power sweeps and quick approaches, occasionally diving through entire enemy formations to take advantage of the confusion that followed in order to disengage."

"His favourite method of attack was to hold fire until extremely close (20 m (66 ft) or less), then unleash a short burst at point-blank range—a technique he learned while flying as wingman of his former commander, Walter Krupinski, who favoured this approach. This technique, as opposed to long-range shooting, allowed him to:[9][35]

-reveal his position only at the last possible moment
-compensate for the low muzzle velocity of the slower firing 30 mm MK 108 -equipping some of the later Bf 109 models (though most of his victories were claimed with Messerschmitts equipped with the high-velocity MG 151 cannon)
-place his shots accurately with minimum waste of ammunition
-prevent the adversary from taking evasive actions"

"However, firing at close range ran the risk of having to fly through the debris of a damaged or exploding aircraft, thereby damaging his own fighter in the process (much of the damage Hartmann sustained in combat was caused by collision with flying debris). If it was dangerous to dog-fight further he would break off and content himself with one victory. His careful approach was described by himself by the line "See – Decide – Attack – Break": observe the enemy, decide how to proceed with the attack, make the attack, and then disengage to re-evaluate the situation."

"Erich Hartmann flew 1,404 combat missions during World War II, resulting in 825 engagements,[51] and was never shot down.

He was never wounded and never bailed out due to damage inflicted by enemy pilots. His kill tally included some 200 various single-engined Soviet-built fighters, more than 80 US-built P-39s, 15 Il-2 ground attack aircraft, and 10 twin-engined medium bombers."

on the other hand

"However, on 23 April, Marseille himself was shot down during his third sortie of that day by Sous-Lieutenant James Denis, a Free French pilot with No. 73 Squadron RAF, "James Denis shot down Marseille again on 21 May 1941" By the same guy no less...now thats sad.


If the enemy doesnt know your there until you appear out of nowhere from behind at such a range that they couldnt even react...thats not easy. And the fact that Hartmann never got himself killed flying through the exploding planes he just shot with his suicidally insane tactics is a testiment to his skill as a pilot. Not saying he never had to land a plane to to damage, but he never had to do so because of enemy fire. Even when he finally crashed and was captured by the russians, it was because of him flying into debris, not because someone got a lucky shot and brought him down.


Point is, theres a reason Hartmann earned the title "The Ace of Aces" from historians and Marsailles didnt. Simply put Hartmann is and, judging by current scores, will forever be the most successful pilot in the history of combat aviation. Hell modern day pilots havnt even been able to get into the same solar system as these guys. Most Korean and Vietnam pilots scores arn't even into the 20s...which is pretty sad actually...

Marsailles may have been good, but statistically Hartmann was better and in the end, that's what matters in the pages of history... results.


And, if you think about it, Hartmann also beats Marsailles in making a total fool out of oneself....observe:

Marsailles: Drunkard playboy

vs

Hartmann: In March 1944, Erich Hartmann, Gerhard Barkhorn, Walter Krupinski and Johannes Wiese were summoned to Adolf Hitler's Berghof in Berchtesgaden. Barkhorn was to be honoured with the Swords, while Hartmann, Krupinski and Wiese were to receive the Oak Leaves to the Knight's Cross. On the train, all four of them got drunk on cognac and champagne. Supporting each other and unable to stand, they arrived at Berchtesgaden. Major Nicolaus von Below, Hitler's Luftwaffe adjutant, was shocked. After some sobering up, Hartmann was still intoxicated. Hartmann took a German officer hat from a stand and put it on, but it was too large. Von Below became upset, told Hartmann it was Hitler's and ordered him to put it back.

I still hold that Hartmann is damn lucky he wasnt taken out to the toolshed and shot. I somehow doubt that if it had been Hitler who had walked in that he would have been so forgiving. I mean, genocidal maniacs dont mess around...

---------------------

Back on topic though. I did notice that when Jaeger was narrating the fight that some of the maneuvers didnt match up. Thought it was funny. Cant wait for Barkhorn's episode.

Thumbs up Big post of episodes 6, 7 and 8

First thing to say is that I apologize to my friends for not being to follow them around in this series. I was so busy with other series but I still have to catch up on 9, 10 and 11 which is coming out today. I am really with myself that I was not able but now I am here. I thank Dahak86 a lot for making the efforts on his side to make GIFs.....I will supply some nice avatars for each episode in spaces of 5 each.
Episode 6

Let's start with episode 6.......that episode probably the best of the best of the relation between Sanya and Eila. As the episode went I was quite surprised or might have forgotten that Eila does see into the future and can thus avoid almost any Neuroi attack based on this=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/c5c55fb8.jpg
Strangely enough the obelisk reminded me of one from the USA and it is a pain in the ass because of that time there was no space fighter striker units here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/1ef3f931.jpg
So I was surprised they actually developed rocket boosters for the strikers and the plans were quite nice=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/616195b6.jpg
Yeah that too was a problem I was wondering about.....got to admit that Francesca's face was priceless here but also how she leaning on Charlotte here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/cd087495.jpg
Delicious fan service of Eila and Perrine here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/f9a9396e.jpg
Also it was funny to see Perrine always taking the bullet from Lynette's gun in the practice time.
The moon beams suddenly ruined it here for the fan service but other than that it was nice for Eila/Erica here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/db2007be.jpg
That was rather a nice part of Eila thinking over about the whole dilenma of her not being able to use the shield that she can over the argument of her and Sanya=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/c08b4023.jpg
What was nice of the intermission of this episode is that Sanya's scanner is like a Tiara and Eila is the white prince on the horse here=>
Spoiler:

Are those meserchmidts by chance?=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/36b61167.jpg
Holy crap at the temperature rating! -70 is harsh! I am still surprised that the magic kept them warm. Still the best of best was the OST when Eila used her shield and boy was I at that part. Really was a miracle and will power of protecting one that Eila used her shield! It was nice and decent in size. Sanya's rocket blasting was amazing too! 10/10 for episode with no problems!
Episode 7

Episode 7 itself was a feast of ecchi. It was too obvious they made the Neuroi into a insect to make it ecchi with the way things went in this episode. At least I had my laughs in it. Starting with Erica sleeping....I ROFL way too much for this part=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/87db228c.jpg
As if that was not enough the second time I see Erica like that still it worked again on me! =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/cb8b67e4.jpg
I did not understand exactly understand what Barkhorn meant by the Siegfried line but what was it at this part?=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/f3e4113d.jpg
Rather curious to know the author and who he is to Erica here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/424321cf.jpg
Aaaaaaaaaah! Too bad they failed at censoring properly Lynette's breasts since I can a pretty decent shape here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/d6d52d4b.jpg
Perinne was hilarious here but I would have to say that I agree with her that some witches are rather ecchi animalistic here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/5ebab399.jpg
It would have been rather crazy if that bug went inside the anus but it still managed to go in the crack of the ass=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/3c4e3178.jpg
A rather nice render in intermission part of this episode of Barkhorn here=>
Spoiler:

Rather nasty slap there.....damn hand imprint is clear=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/7e73cda9.jpg
OK I see now. The problem of this bug is that it can sabotage a lot in the electronic field of any structure=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/cf674814.jpg
Right it could be here.......still nice ass part of Sanya here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/ff92c28e.jpg
Well that was a rather nasty hit of Sanya on Eila... =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/972311c1.jpg
So Minna got the award in the end due to her crushing the bug which was connected to the Neuroi with her ass of all things....wow that's just here =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/08a990aa.jpg
This episode in action wise was crap! Ecchi of course gets a 10/10 with a over 9000 for originality.
Episode 8

Finally it brings me to comment on episode 8. Episode 8 marked itself with a remarkable upgrade to Yoshika....the Shinden known as the "Magnificent Lighting" but it was also the episode where Lynette suffered a lot and Yoshika cried. Which in turn back when I saw it her suffering did affect me a lot TBH. Going by episode parts......I would like to know WTH are these dish meals here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/92e3c1a9.jpg
Well that was rather suprising....Miyafuji blows up the broom....=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/4ee9a055.jpg
Really nice intermission this time around....Miyafuji with her father!=>
Spoiler:

This part was the worrying as the Neuroi being only 500km from their main base and the Yamato being in danger....pretty insane part here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/219fa76d.jpg
When the music started to play in the background with suddenly Yoshika's father talking and the Shinden appearing suddenly in this part...I think I jumped from my chair in joy! With a "Get those shit ass Neuroi Yoshika!" this part=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/0c0808d0.jpg
The Shinden does look rather nice from this look around=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/db73d3f8.jpg
Obvious 10/10 episode.

Fixed.
"Bianco" is singular while "bianche" is plural. Bianco mean white, so the translation is "white clams".

The long correct sentence is Spaghetti alle vongole bianche, translated Spaghetti with white clams or Spaghetti with clams (white is optional).

Many Experten did not get off to good starts and Hartmann was no exception. You seem to have read the Wikipedia article on him so you should have seen

Quote:
"Hartmann flew his first combat mission on 14 October 1942 as Roßmann's wingman. When they encountered 10 enemy aircraft below, Hartmann, obsessed by the idea of scoring his first kill, opened full throttle and became separated from Roßmann. He engaged an enemy fighter, but failed to score any hits and nearly collided with it instead. He then ran for cover in low cloud, and his mission subsequently ended with a crash landing after his aircraft ran out of fuel. Hartmann had violated almost every rule of air-to-air combat, and von Bonin sentenced him to three days of working with the ground crew. Twenty-two days later, Hartmann claimed his first kill, an Ilyushin Il-2 of the 7th Guards Ground Attack Aviation Regiment, but, by the end of 1942, he had added only one more kill to his tally."
Some more on that period:

Quote:
"Krupinski: I assigned Hartmann to serve as my wingman many times, and along with Gerd Barkhorn, he was given his first opportunity for a victory when we met a single Soviet fighter. Erich had already been reprimanded earlier for breaking formation and chasing a fighter, getting shot up and crashing his plane with nothing to show for it. [Prior to Krupinski's assignment to command 7th Staffel, JG.52, Hartmann had, in fact, taken part in a team effort in downing an Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik on November 5, 1942, which was credited to him as his first victory as a means of encouraging the new man in the squadron. As he followed his already burning victim down, the Shturmovik exploded, damaging Hartmann's Me-109G and forcing him to make a belly landing."
Here's something else:

Quote:
"Alfred Grislawski treated the newcomer in the ordinary harsh manner of a member of the working class. He was constantly picking on Erich Hartmann, shouting at him, insulting him and nagging on him for all Hartmann’s beginner’s mistakes. Grislawski never excused Hartmann for any mistake. Whenever Hartmann made a mistake in the air during the training passes with Grislawski, his headphones would explode in a harsh scream from his mentor: “Do you really want to die that quick? Don’t you think the Russians can fly? How many times have I told you – don’t do it like that!” – With the scornful addition: “Little boy…”

“Little boy” – “Bubi” – it was Alfred Grislawski who invented this later so famous nickname for Erich Hartmann."
Don't just compare Hartmann's entire career with Marseille's start.

Yes, was not a very good argument.

Did you know that Krupinski was a terrible gunner? That's why he had to do that.

Let's do some numbers:

Hartmann had 352 kills in 1404 combat sorties giving a .2507 kill/sortie ratio.
Marseille had 158 kills in 382 combat sorties giving a .4136 kill/sortie ratio.

This isn't an absolute way to gauge pilot skill but it gives an idea of something...

I don't particularly find it humiliating to be shot down by the same man twice but that's a matter of opinion. As a note, Denis was also an ace, with 9 kills.

Yes Hartmann was a great pilot. So was Marseille. You believe Hartmann was better. Hartmann, Galland, Rall, and I think Marseille was better.

An incident involving Marseille:
Quote:
"In 11 minutes of combat, fighting practically alone against a large enemy formation, he shot down six victims, five of them in the first six minutes. He was the only attacker in the battle, and not a single round was fired at him. The surviving Tomahawk pilots said in their debriefing that they were attacked "by a numerically superior German formation which made one formation attack at them, shot down six of their friends, and disengaged". In a post-war analysis of this dogfight these pilots testified the same."
As well as the fact that Marseille, at his best, used an average of 15 rounds to down each enemy aircraft.

The definition of Ace of Aces means the pilot who has scored the most kills. The reason why Marseille doesn't hold the title is probably because he died in a accident on Sept. 30, 1942. By the way, do you remember when Hartmann scored his first kill? And, most pilots from later wars don't have the same scale of kills because the wars were of a much smaller scale. Also during World War II, the Allies tended to use their best pilots in the training of newer pilots leading to individual Allied scores being very low in comparison. But then again, the Allies won the war...

I still hold that Hartmann is damn lucky he wasnt taken out to the toolshed and shot. I somehow doubt that if it had been Hitler who had walked in that he would have been so forgiving. I mean, genocidal maniacs dont mess around...
Let's expand on "drunkard playboy":

Quote:
"The Captain, with champagne dinners, French brandy and Havana cigars, treated enemy airmen that fell into the Germans' hands royally. Marseille was a throwback to the gallant times of WWI when his idol, the Red Baron Manfred von Richtofen, believed that the foe should be treated with chivalry. In fact General Theo Osterkamp, 32 victory ace of WWI who knew Richtofen, said, "Only one man was as good at gunnery as Richtofen—Marseille."

Hans had a luxurious apartment in Benghazi, Libya. It was stocked with gourmet foods and liquor. It is said that his female friends included an Italian general's wife, a German field marshal's daughter, an Egyptian princess and an English newspaperwoman who had defected."
Here's another incident involving Marseille:

Quote:
"The Knight's Cross with oak leaves, swords and diamonds holder once had a conversation with field Marshal Erwin Rommel that can only be described as one that enraged the Wehrmacht icon.

Marseille contested the antiquated idea that the Luftwaffe be tied to the army's control. The Soviets operated that way and destroyed the power of their vast fleets of planes by keeping them stationed above some ground forces while they were really needed a short distance away.

Marseille likened the control of aircraft by battalion commanders to "…a bunch of children tugging on the strings of puppets."

Rommel countered with, "My commanders take their orders from me—I am the coordinator!"

Marseille persisted saying, "Wouldn't it be silly for Montgomery to give orders to the Royal Navy? The air arm must work in concert with the ground forces, not be fragmented….""
The point is that Marseille was wonderful as well as Hartmann and that you should look down on neither. Thank you for reading.

Fighting the enemy with their own technology is a good idea in practice, but as one Aoi Futaba learned, the enemy is also aware that's a good idea in practice. Either the Yamato's going to go berserk and need to be blown up, or something else - either way, they thought ahead. Also, another crisis of self, except this one is definitely more real, and been hovering around since the season began.

It's not all serious, though. I liked Shakkini's long jump into the bath and their spinning throw attack. There was some pretty cool choreography during the battle. We know, thanks to scans, that this isn't the end of the Strike Witches franchise, so no need to say goodbye just yet.

Also, got a small kick out of Yoshika quoting lyrics from the OP in the next episode preview.

Say, still not 100% yet, but after watching ep 11 I had to pop in here. The uh, I wasn't kidding when I said this earlier about the Yamato. So uh, chalk up another prediction? (well it was gonna happen anyways )

I wish my Minna-chan could console me right now, I feel like Mio at the moment, so not my previous self, and getting old by the minute. Well, at least she can fly...

By the way, my heartbeat rose when I saw the hair-down Mio.

yep, that's right. as an Italian-speaker, I confirm this.

yea, as soon as I heard of this "Yamato Neuroification", my thoughts immediately went back to that prediction of yours. well done bud, again.

Heh, I think this series was the most I ever predicted for this season (Beam-slicing Mio, shield-shattering laser attack, my Minna-chan bumping heads with her superiors(this was mostly about me lol), and that space battleship Yamato.) I'm more interested in what it would have been like if I was healthy

Ahaha heh... the light blinded me so I couldn't see "the rest of her body"

Yeah, Summer season coming to a close for a number of anime, so I wanted to get back here because I'll admit, life away from this forum was dull for the past week. That and I am tired of lying down and resting. It's just not me :P

I should be fine with some uncensored episode 07, but I don't think that would satisfy me, so...

And nice to see Francis here too. I'll be honest here, that food talk made me really hungry

Wait....Sanya and Eila are sleeping together?

And an official link between Mio and Minna is established? WIN!

The combat sequence is hilarious though......Sanya's 1-K-24 is win lol.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Are you sure thats all that rose


Did anyones heart crumble to pieces seeing Mio cry? that was actually pretty hard for me. A character that has shown nothing but strength through both seasons finally breaking down.

However when my heart starts to sink i just think back to the op seeing of her in the shower with DAT ASS!!
