What's the importance of the VC tank? Are there more besides the Firefly? Did I miss something?

 

Also, wouldn't other 17pdr tanks be just something-C, and not something-VC?

 

Valkyria Chronicles.

I see. I guess I'd be kind of surprised that they haven't done a Pz-3 skin for that yet, since there's precedent in the KV-2 Valhallan skin they did one time, but I guess they also don't have GuP skin options in the game yet either.

 

I guess I'm actually more surprised at the existence of the Valhallan KV-2 than the lack of existence of re-skins for tank-themed animes, since I think it's unique in being a reference to other media. Also, it's for a model that existed in the 90's and only in 6mm scale for Epic, not even normal 40k, that would probably go unrecognized by most 40k players. It wasn't exactly iconic in it's own game, even.

Valkyria Chronicles in this case.

 

Speaking of Fireflies in squadrons (or platoons if you prefer), I don't know if there anything army-wide/official about this. I'm pretty sure I've read of commanders telling the Firefly to do this or that.  Eventually I think they built up to 2 Fireflies/squadron.  Some Cromwell units had Fireflies in them as well in similar proportions. (That would be Cromwell units without Challengers, or Comets later on, evidently.)

In books --

 

Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear. This is a doozy of a space opera with a little more science than I expected. A space salvager and her partner make a find which lands them in serious trouble involving some very nasty people and leads them to make some amazing discoveries.

Unexpectedly to me: this is a very political book with people of a galactic civilization who people use tech to monkey with their brains and work together cooperatively vs atavistic pirates who are basically sociopaths.

I see the tank has been knocked out.  Maybe a few more rounds will cause it to brew up and force Arthur to evacuate.

It very much has pref MM. I still wouldnt get it because the 112 is better, and I think you can buy that for 10,500 gold in the client, but it does have pref MM.
