Slightly unrelated, since I was using "those" subs, I remember reading Kay mentioned off-hand the possibility of multiple-school free-for-alls, with two schools ganging up temporarily on another. Was that a translation flub?

Because if it's accurate, then that really opens the door for truly massive tank melees, with alliances being formed and breaking up left and right.

Eh, I have a question regarding the communication between each tank.

When one tank want to talk with other tank, can they communicate with tank's commander directly or they need to communicate through radio operator?

I ask this because sometime Miho can hear other tank message and can communicate with other tank by herself but sometime Miho need to inform by Saori what other tank said or she has to give order through Saori.

Miho uses her throat microphone, which is linked to the radio in the tank. Saori is the one controlling the radio, so there are times Miho need to tell Saori what to do/say, even if Miho can hear what other tanks are saying.

I don't remember hearing anything similar, or reading it on subtitles (though I was not using "Those" subs), but tell me where it is (Episode and approximate time) and I'll check for you what they actually said.

angelhesk: It should be during the latter half of episode 5. Kay mentioned that they didn't have enough tanks, but since they weren't ganging up on another school, it didn't really matter.

It wouldn't be ~1:50/2:40 in this short, would it?

They said they can't form two complete (5-tank?) platoons with with they have, so they'll go with 3 3-tank platoons to form a company.

Oh, Commie.

Yep, definitely a translation flub.

And you wonder why I'm actually redownloading Hiryuu for more accuracy ahaha.

Yes. That's one of the more blatant cases of them making an error. Yukari was asking about the battle organization, and Kay replied since they didn't have enough to form two regular platoons, they'd form it into a single company with three tanks per platoon.

Even so, for once you'll wish they had been right. Large scale tank melees do sound fun.

Please, let's not introduce the BETA to that nice world.

Oh well, at least BETA are supposed to be pretty beatable without those Laser things shooting everything out of the sky. It is said in secondary material it is quite possible to defeat them with ordinary things including tanks.

It's the lasers and running outta ammo that's the issue. A Brad carries a max load if 900 rounds of 25mm; an F-15E Strike Eagle TSF or a Type-94 Shiranui is supposed to be able to carry twelve mags of 2000 rounds of 36mm HVAP as spare ammo, in addition to four assault cannons loaded with 2000 rounds each. Tl;dr, mech has 20,000 rounds of ammo.

The bane of tanks is Destroyer-class BETA, those guys can run with speed of 170 kPh and with their thick frontal armor they most likely would reach line of tanks and utterly devastate her.
And, as we could see in 2 episode of total eclipse, Destroers can simply charge through entire cities without stopping, so any attempt to try to stall their rampage with urban warfare is useless.

Yes, let us discuss something actually connected to the series.

Like the Anglerfish Dance. The next OVA is apparently going to focus on it, but given how each OVA is 14 or so minutes long, we can't obviously expect a 14-minute marathon of the dance. Or even a step-by-step demonstration on how to dance in a way that scares of suitors...

Can we?

Every other anime dance that I've seen eventually ends up with step-by-step instructions somewhere. Putting it into the OVA would just be more official than... some? Most?

GuP has a penchant for detail. I wouldn't put it past them.

In fact, why isn't there a complete guide to the series printed in Nyantype or in a dvd box in the fashion of the Panzer manuals yet?
