Title should be explanatory. So I wounder who was high on what when they had the idea for this because it is both unique and crazy. Should we start taking bets on who gets penetrated by a AP round first?

Well, it turned out to be exactly what I expected it to be. It's not great but endearing, has a ridiculous premise and Commie's subs closed the deal for me.

Had a hearty laugh when the turret panned over and the girl waved at you so innocently while they were riding into battle in their colorful tanks.

Hey guys, I'm just going to bring up the Elefant in the field here: Where are the Japanese tanks?

Oh wait, nm, it has exactly one. I wonder why the protag's not using it... :biii:

Rommel-chan is the best.

I was not happy with this and voiced my opinion on the thread on Commie's website asking for opinions on their v2 sub, which according to them actually has less German. There was such an outcry against the thrown in German that I expect them to drop it. Went back and got Hiryuu's version which uses tankwondo instead of sensha-do.

Erwin's crew, which drives the StuG III, looks like it has Kaesar as its commander. This explains the Veni, vidi, vici painted on the front and the Afrika Korps logo on the rear now makes sense. I'm actually reading Rommel's War in Africa right now and it points out that Rommel began wearing captured goggles on his cap at a certain point, so I was glad to see that Erwin also does this. Did anyone else notice that the girl with the black jacket draped over her shoulders in the crew is wearing her glasses upside down?

People have complained on the other thread about the lack of Russian tanks, this suggests that they will show up eventually, unless I'm seeing things.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Commie is enjoying it way too much. Half their staff is German from what I heard. Time to become weltmännisch and learn some Deutsch, Kamerad.

Well I would like to know what the StuG III has written on its rear without having to use Google Translate. Which BTW seems to be Vergießt schweiss aber kein blut! (Sheds sweat but no blood!)

However the disparity between what was being said and what I was reading, like brot and freund, was just :thumbsdown: And if Commie persists there are other subbing groups out there working on the series as well, so I can just go with them, despite the use of tankwondo.

So the Type 89 in the cave is plausible, it could have gotten in there another way. However the StuG III being fully functional despite being underwater for an extended period of time I found to be a longshot, even assuming that everything was buttoned up and sealed. Or is this an example of quality German engineering at work?

I'm also expecting that crew to throw out a lot more phrases and adages as well as play to the figures they were based on, e.g. "the die has been cast", which Kaesar says.

The tanks aren't anthropomorphic. But the ridiculous factor still hasn't settled down yet.
