Hi, it’s me again. I was on vacation with my relatives in the Philippines back in August and I’m just wondering, what do the shipgirls think of the country as a whole? I do realize that many of them did fight to liberate the country, so sorry if I’m inducing some PTSD here.

Shipgirls with historical namesakes that served in the Asiatic Fleet (Edsall, Houston, Augusta, and so on) are likely the ones with the clearest impression of the Philippines. Those memories vary. Some hate the weather. Others like the exotic locale. Some really enjoy traveling about. Others can’t wait to get home.

You also have girls like Phoenix who probably feel more connected due to her connection with MacArthur. Trout might also have an opinion (spec-ops). In any case, it varies. 🙂

Thank you very much for replying! I figured each shipgirl would have their respective views on the Philippines. I’m just imagining this from the top of my head, but I could see the following shipgirls having these perspectives:

Cali likes the beaches and weather.
Tennsy would like the food.
Lulu, St. Louis, and Mahan have bad memories of kamikazes.
The Iowa sisters remember Typhoon Cobra.

I might be the first one to ask this, or then not, but, how are you going to do Independence’s history/introduction, as there were ‘some’ ships in the post-war nuclear tests. Would it affect her personality-wise or anything like that? I was just wondering.

We’ll get to Independence when we get to independence. Seeing as how we treat the other Crossroads girls, it probably won’t affect her personality that much. The stories of these ships are much much more than just their demise!

Hey @Skullface,
I was just wondering (I will admit it is a personal question), since I have seen your Pacific Iowa fanfiction and Melissa’s DA, how you and MAET work together on putting together your fanfiction alongside your commissions.

Addendum: Well, yeah, MAEt sometimes peeks in for researching l00d ideas (see his response to Lulu’s complaint about cruisers not getting any for one XD ), but as a whole you’d be better served asking at the KnNI threads directly.

You’ll have to ask Warp and MAEt about it over at SpaceBattles or Sufficient Velocity. I’m just the local messenger – they’ve wandered far enough off the Pacific beaten track that they’re not paying too much attention to what’s happening over here.

Anything planned to be written for the upcoming 75th anniversary of the Bloody Battle of Friday the Thirteenth? In “Neptune’s Inferno” James D. Hornfischer makes an interesting case for this being a turning point in the war because it broke Japanese naval confidence and effectively won the final struggle for Guadalcanal. It is also the battle where all 5 Sullivan brothers died.

Possibly. Other than Silent Service Subcorners I do like to draw attention to key naval battles where appropriate. Let me see what we can scrounge up on the Japanese side, since I’ve always thought Abe made a big tactical error by not choosing to pursue his original objective.

Of our own actions, I think we’ve got plenty of materials already. I think a candid assessment of Callaghan’s decision making would probably be good.

Great! Reread “Neptune’s Inferno”, points I noted. Americans knew this was suicide, which can change tactics. Crossing the T against BB’s couldn’t work, barreling thru at less than a mile might because BB armor vulnerable at Point Blank Range. Abe had no memory after DD Laffey machine gunned him off his own bridge, which suggests concussion, which suggests poorer thinking. Japanese claimed to have switched to AP, but battle results suggest otherwise, so how many HE did Kirishima have left?

Saw this somewhere, thought I’d ask: what is West Virginia’s opinion on John Denver’s Country Road?

Hey, its me again. (Not sure you remember me) But I just wanted to stop by and say that your art is amazing, and I bought the english Vol 1. Also wanted to say that they/you influenced me and my group of friends. We run an RP server(We’re nerds, I know), and many of us, including myself, have drawn influence/used characters from your collection. Even the dinner picture with Zuikaku was used for our background. Just thought I’d swing by and tell you that. Keep it up, and can’t wait for Eng Vol 2

Hey! You don’t mind sharing a link to the server? I’m actually kind of curious to see. I fully understand if you don’t want to show it.

Regardless, glad to see people like Pacific!

HI! I’m relatively new here so sorry in advance if my question has already been answered! Is there such a thing as shipgirls/abyssals that have gone rogue or switched sides, and if so would the pacific team ever cover them?

Morgane

Welcome! So I believe it has been explicitly mentioned how there are no such things as shipgirls going rogue/side switching. The girls are here purely for fighting for humanity’s sake. Same thing likely applies for Abyssals since they’re basically hyper-advanced space-faring locusts with monster fish. They’ve invaded other worlds and already know How to Invade Planets 101 by the time they reach us.

Will Jeanex or Sima do any new Chester art in memory of Chester Bennington? ;_;

The biggest issue is that I don’t think they even know what Linkin Park is. xD

hello. regarding your post on the 19th 2017. you mentioned that the american pilots who flew at midway were greenhorns. while this is a general assumption i can assure you that with some digging this is the complete opposite case.

1: wildcats are in extreme short supply. and escorts were called off in an effort to increase the power of the bombing runs

2: thach’s wildcat flight engaged the zero swarm at a position of energy deficiency. aka, below.

3: 21 F2As were used on midway

it might be noted that of course. all 21 buffalos were smashed (well what did you expect they are like biplanes but worse), thach’s 6 cat flight slaughtered the zeroes with most members never getting the ‘thach weave’ briefing, and all ijn carriers went up in flames. if anything, i would say that the american crew at midway was just about equally skilled as their japanese counterpart. the japanese pilots however, probably didn’t expect wildcats to actually outmatch their zeroes.

Just a quick question on the picture with Iowa and the POW-MIA dinner, who are the other 4 girls/ships? A friend and I figured that the 3 at the table with her are the destroyers Hull, Monaghan, and Spence who all sank in a typhoon that Iowa was in, but the one at the other table is throwing us off. Any possible insight?

I believe it was revealed that it’s actually Des Moines who’s at the table with Iowa, the two silver-haired girls are the Pensacolas (forgot how to distinguish them), and the redhead is Astoria?
