posting a Miyafuji for good luck>>4105027its not that bad! don't give up!
>>4105023That is one sexy and tasteful Galland.
It's july 2nd in Germany, time for a story about birthdays: >Such a “birthday celebration” is quite good fun, and many practical jokes are played; so also on this occasion. We have with us an acting M.O. Our airmen say that he cannot stand the “noise of firing”. In the small hours of the morning Jungklausen goes to the telephone and gets this doctor out of bed. Jungklausen pretends to be his superior officer in the Air Medical Corps: “You are to prepare immediately to be flown into the pocket “. ‘’Would you repeat that please?” “You are to prepare immediately to be flown into the pocket of Stalingrad. You are to relieve a colleague there “ “I don’t think I understand “. >The doctor lives only on the floor below; we wonder that he does not hear Jungklausen’s loud voice from the room above. He must be too excited. “But you know that I have a bad heart”. “That is beside the point. You are to take off for the pocket immediately.” “But you know I have recently had an operation. Wouldn’t it be better to give this assignment to a colleague?” “You can’t mean that seriously! I cannot imagine that you are trying to wriggle out of this assignment. What sort of a hole should we be in if we cannot even count on you?” >We are splitting our sides with laughter. The next day the doctor runs around in a terrible stew, but he boasts to anyone who is willing to listen to him that perhaps he is going to be required for this highly dangerous assignment. A few days later he has tumbled to the joke and is transferred. Better for us, better for him. In these days for quite a short time we use the airfield at Rowenki and then we move to Gorlowka, not far from Stalino, the centre of the Donetz industrial region. Heavy snowstorms hamper our flying activity: it is always a slow business getting the whole squadron into the air.
>>4105081It is Rudel's day! Happy birthday to her.Rudel was the greatest ground-attack ace of all time, and the sole recipient of the Golden Oak Leaves. His score includes 500 tanks, 150 pieces of artillery, and a freaking battleship. I don't know much about Rudel, but he shows up almost like a recurring side character in the other pilots' biographies. JG-52 protected Rudel's Stukas over Kursk (the anniversary of which also begins this week, incidentally). Hartmann called Rudel "the bravest man I ever knew."
>>4105274i don't have any art of herif anons here have some, i would appreciate itlove these little snip-its as well. thanks anon.
>>4105023PA native, nice.
>>4105803>Dressing Rudel in frilly idol clothesDefinitely a prank from Erica. Or Krupi.
>>4105812The gap moe is /c/ute
>>4105813The gap moe is cute.I also have a weakness for handsome dashing ikemen girls with sharp clothes and long ponytails. (I would literally die for Eila in a ponytail.)
One bit of trivia from the war is that aerial aces did not hate one another. There are numerous accounts of Hartmann, Barkhorn, and Marseille welcoming downed Allied pilots into their camp. The flyers respected one another.Walter Nowotny, Germany's #5 Ace, was finally downed over France in 1944. French fighters honored him with a proper military burial, and gave his grave the inscription:>Here on 8 November 1944, following 258 aerial victories, the recipient of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, Major Walter Nowotny, fell for his people and his fatherland.Pierre Clostermann devotes a whole chapter of his memoirs to mourn for Nowotny. Clostermann relates this loss of a fierce enemy as if it were the loss of an old friend. In another life, they might have been comrades.I think there's something beautiful about that. To some degree, these men did not hate each other. They fought for their country and happened to be on the opposite sides of a terrible war.
>>4105036It's so bad my shoulders are on fire from unable to sleep properly and my brain feels dizzy..>>4105883Ever since I've been a child I've always loved military aviation for the sole reason it was like chivalruous jousting in the skies between gentlemen and everyone I know also shared the same thought on it, even people against war. It was its own world separated from horrors of ground war. Not that you could escape horrors fully with obvious crimes being done anyways like defenseless parachuting pilots and crewmen shot down regardless. Marseille's funeral had probably most of the renowned aces present from both sides that I know of.>>4105921Why post samples anon? All of those have hq-scans, except for the wedding dresses.
>>4105803Rudel shares her seiyuu with Gold Ship>>4105883That story reminds when Musashi defeated Kojiro, it was said that it was a point of inflexion in his life, just imagine how it would feel to defeat your equal
>>4105883Soldiers in general don't tend to hate each other unless either side is genociding each other or propaganda has convinced everyone that they're all evil. That's to say that in WWII Axis captured by Allies tended to be okay, except for that one time Eisenhower had a million germans in a starvation camp, and allies captured by Axis tended to do okay. But the Eastern front was a war of annihilation and the Pacific was to an extent as well. Funny though, American soldiers in training expressed more hatred of the Japanese than Americans who had been in combat with them.
>>4105932Somehow I love Minna's expression in that one, even though it's just a pretty normal smile

>>4109616Very nice, thank you everybody involved.
July is the month of Kursk. Many Karlsland Witches of JG52 flew with Luftflotte 4, the air arm which supported the southern edge of the salient and protected Rudel's Stukas. Many brave Orussian Witches fought admirably on the other side as well. Litvyak was shot down here, and Pokryshkin (Sasha) was operating in the same general area.
>>4112588Is that Aurora onee-san?
>>4112590only the best
>>4112594Onee-sans are precious.
>>4112601especially aurorashe needs more attention
In case someone's unaware, Kaneko-san (uzis7) passed away few days ago from collagen disease. His sister told about it on twitter.Feels bad man, he was around for so long and had all those great pieces of art made. He also inspired tricky_46 heavily in art who's really good at drawing these days.I'll just share few images I really like from him.

>>4113645Jeannie beanie!My starlight.
To anon from RS, BR. I'm very sorry but also amazed. Your christmas package just returned to me after having travelled continents and back. The reason given for the return is "unclaimed", the return date april. I would like to at least try and send you your card again, but you may need to confirm your adress via world witches anon. This was my first time sending an international package, and I'm sure I did something wrong, welp, as you can see there were some treats, but they're now long lost to the ravages of time and transport
>>4113776Not that anon, but wow the card and package look very neat.
It's me, Perrine!!
>>4113776Oh wow. It's a miracle the package survived international shipping, did not get lost/stolen somewhere along the way, and actually made it back to you after, what, 6 or 7 months? lol Appreciate you reaching out and wanting to send the card again. Can confirm the address I gave World Witches Anon is correct, I received a Christmas card from him and from one other anon last year, and I use that address for all my online orders as well. If you want to be extra sure you may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and send me a photo of the envelope before you post it. >This was my first time sending an international package, and I'm sure I did something wrong, welp, as you can see there were some treats, but they're now long lost to the ravages of time and transportNah, I'm positive someone at the post office fucked up. I thought it might have been retained at customs over pending import duties and handling fees (definitely NOT supposed to happen if you sent it as a gift, but you never know) or that they misplaced the delivery slip somehow. As it says "unclaimed", it's more likely the latter. Never had that happen as long as I've had that PO box, but it's a real possibility. What really strikes me as odd is the April return date. At least on paper, international packages are held for 30 days and then returned to sender, meaning it only arrived here in March. That's an absurd transit time, even when shipping to a different continent!

"Hey, Kid! I'm a Luminous!"
>>4120136Wow she's so cool!
I had a dream last night where Moffy hatched from an egg in my barn. I was lying on the floor of the stall trying to grab the pieces of the eggshell because they looked cool. I didn't know where Moffy was either, so I was looking for her and eventually found her nestled under the shavings under an overhang at the base of the wall. I kept alternating between trying to pick up the eggshell and petting her head.Then a cassowary with a dog's mouth came and snatched up Moffy in its mouth and started running off. I chased it and kicked it so it dropped Moffy in the grass, at which point I lost sight of her.Then there was a lot of gravel near where Moffy fell and someone with a front-end loader started picking up all the gravel and dumping it into a sort of compacter/sorter. I think I saw Moffy's crushed corpse get dumped into it along with the gravel.
Yesterday was Huberta van Bonin's birthday! She is vice-commander of the 503rd JFW.van Bonin is based on German ace Hubertus van Bonin. He served in the Spanish Civil war and WWII, achieving 77 aerial victories and earning the Knight's Cross. In 1940 he was part of the Battle of Britain. In 1941-42 he served on the Eastern Front with JG-52. He was given command of JG-54 in 1943. During Kursk, van Bonin and JG-54 supported the northern pincer, while Rall and JG-52 supported the southern pincer.van Bonin died in combat in December 1943. The legend is that he was outnumbered 6 to 1 in his final dogfight.
Perrine has an important speech to give.
>>4119249Glad you could make it, hopefully tomorrow too. And yeah, she actually is. I'd love to make her into a woman..>>4120808That's.. quite the dream you've had there.>>4121624Love the 90's style quality mic art, reminds me of Westwood's cutscenes.
