That was grim, I hope the other schools will be making an appearance as well. Something tells me that romance plan is going to backfire. and what could jack possibly be planning? very interesting )

How exactly were the tanks moved to Vegas? By rail?
I predict that Lucius plan to deflect Saori and Jack will backfire.
I like most of your details about the ban on open-topped tanks, but I have a suggestion to get the American Tank Destroyers back in the game: after-market roof kits. If the Ooarai girls can find a kit that turns a Pz 38(t) into a Hetzer, which was actually a new-build vehicle on the 38(t)'s chassis, there must be kits to put armoured tops on the American TDs. Such kits did exist for the M36 and could easily be made legal for the M10 and M18. The artillery pieces wouldn't work with such a conversion, though, as they were designed without sufficient space for the crews to work inside the tank.

Mary Hillson is reminding me of Balalaika from Black Lagoon.

Well done, sir. I was thinking of writing a story along these myself, but now I'd rather just read yours. The point of Canada's academies simply being isolated land facilities is exactly what I would have done, as it makes a great deal more sense for a land-rich country like Canada. I'm also glad you included male Tankers in the story, as the all-girl Sensha-do of the series didn't make much sense to me. I'm curious about what the Chief Executive's goal is in all of this and I really like Park's command style. You do realise, though, that Park is a Korean name and Koreans generally hate the Japanese's guts, so Park and Yukari's families may have problems with it if they get into a relationship.
On a more picky note, why the Sexton and Churchill AVRE were banned from competition? I hope you'll go into the regulations in a bit more detail to explain this.

Another great chapter as usual. And yes, I would use the term 'Persecuted' as well, there really is no better way to describe it. It's just mindless hated at this point and complaints tends to boil down to nothing more than 'Arty keeps hitting me because I like to stand perfectly still out in the open wah wah'
*cough* Sorry about that, I'm as blunt as a Leopard going at ramming speed.
Also, personally I'm glad you decided to go with the KV-85 variant instead of the KV-122 variant WoT decided to shove down our throats with the so called KV-1s.
| fuji92 4/7/13 . chapter 6
Hmm, I read this from the start until this update and I can say...I am very impressed. Love the Canadian team using the British made tanks XD but now this...KV-85 (Possibly KV-1S in other name) interest me, I'm looking forward to this so keep writing and good luck XD- Fuji92

You managed to alter the strategies, brought fresh tanks into the fray and managed to stay true to the characters. Hope you update soon

Some interesting variations on the "standard" Tankery theme, but the inclusion of artillery is IMO questionable. The artillery managed some effectiveness here because they were facing an opponent who has not internalized their consequences. But against teams used to its presence artillery in the low quantities you can stuff in a 20-vehicle team has severe limitations.
Another problem is that while a massive number of poorly-educated and hastily trained conscripts have managed to get tanks running with some efficiency in history (thus making it plausible high school students can too), artillery of the indirect fire variety (which you seem to be using here) is much more technically involved. It seems questionable a student team can use it with any degree of proficiency (the more so if they do the calculations by hand to match the WWII theme).

Nice story, good chapter but, if i were you, i would avoid some WOT mechanics, like the final ramming on the PzIV.
The reason is quite simple: Cromwell and Pz IV had comparable weights, so, a ram on a Pz IV would damage him... but would damage Cromwell crew also. It would be reasonable if the target was a lighter tank
And remember that in real life, a close range shot wouldn't give enough time for the projectile's fuse activation (without speaking of real cannon's dimensions, that in WOT are not a problem).
Ah, i was forgetting one thing: there doesn't exist overpowered arty, just players that doesn't know them XD
| Generic Zero 1/28/13 . chapter 4
I really should have expected that 'Arty is OP' comment. XD
Great job as always although the WOT influence is very, very noticeable. Although to be frank, that isn't a bad thing.
| Patriot-112 1/18/13 . chapter 3
Not bad! Say since the Ram II the Ooari girls are using right now is just a loner, how about they get another tank that was cancelled by the German High Command, the Panzer III/IV. Or, an M10 Wolverine.

"Well, back when the government started looking at the academy warship project, one look at their upkeep cost repelled them from the project as a whole..."
So Canadian! This is an excellent fanfiction, and does the original justice while throwing some curveballs. Keep it up!
