I'm kind of thinking that St. Gloriana wasn't actually using its best tanks during their friendly with Ooarai, as people have noted the Crusader they had. I'm half-expecting some Centurions as well, which they might field against Black Forest.

But yeah, these are sure some lopsided odds.

Oh hey T-34/85. Those 85mm guns will just eat through the armor of their tanks.

I assume the IS-2 will be the flag tank for them and the KV-2 will be at the back throwing mortars around.

Looks like Blackforest will be facing St. Gloriana. We know who the winners will be.

Oh Lord, may thy mercy be upon Darjeeling.

Pravda will be facing Oorai eventually, but I was really hoping for a rematch between Pravda and Black Forest. But, having Oorai's apparent crap tanks going up against Pravda would be quite entertaining... no?

Wait, Does this mean Black Forest can field even more than 15 tanks if they want???

Future looks so dark for Miho and her teams.......

But the Centurion MK I of WW2 was less reliable, had less turret armour and had "only" a 17 pdr gun (not the 20 pdr or 105mm L7 of 50s and 60s), the british considered the Centurion equivalent to the Panther G.

Which is good enough to stand up to either the German or Soviet heavies

Do they have a choice?

Besides, the Tiger P was just as unreliable, but I guess 'reliability' is not part of the game here.

And I knew they were going to do "KATYUSHA", I mean... name was a big hint

Now, is Maho going to do Panzerlied? Female version? Rie Tanaka is a capable singer, but she doing the Panzerlied would be...

The problem is that Yukari also said outright that Saunders didn't win because of superior tactics. This implies that either they win by either using superior quality or numbers. Neither of these exist against Pravda. Even if they field tank destroyers, they'll still have to be good at employing them. On other hand, we know that Pravda uses good tactics from seeing that pretty ambush against Miho. I guess that's why they're the champs.

Black Forest seems to field Pz. IIIs and a couple of Tiger Is. Are you sure they're better?

Maybe Comets or (fingers crossed) Archers, but Centurions are a bit overkill. If St. Gloriana isn't using Fireflies, then they won't have any Achilles either.

The early Centurions aren't as good as the later models, but they're still quite a bit better than other World War II tanks.

Panzerlied is an inferior song though. And yes, I just watched that scene from "The Battle of the Bulge". Besides, the problem with Black Forest is that they don't have very much fun. If Miho was at Pravda a year ago, she'd have never left.

The amusing part is that the best music pieces aren't even original compositions.

I think we know too little from that incident to make a judgment yet. That and Miho did abandon tank prematurely.

Are those the only tanks fielded by Black Forest? We don't know it. Just as we don't know the exact composition of Pravda's battalion until now.

They were champions for the past 9 games consecutively, and hinted to have gone against Pravda on a very frequent basis until the latest one involving Miho's incident. They obviously done something right.

I am pretty sure we will be able to see an episode where Gloriana go against Black Forest in the Semi-Finals. It'd be an interesting watch, and here is to hoping Darjeeling would be able to acquire a graceful exit.

Personally, I dig Prussian Marches much, much more... but thats just me.

I think I misunderstood his question. I thought he said the best pieces were original compositions, so I wondered which ones.

Obvious misreading on my part.
