Iris Tank Fest 2020 (MT, OOC)

Postby The Selkie » Sun May 31, 2020 1:27 am

Come one, come all!

Come to the Iris Tank Fest 2020!


The Iris Boarding School Complex and its Sensha-Do Team invites you to this exciting festival of Sensha-Do and Tank Sport on the school grounds near Fortham, taking place on the 6th of June 2020.
And, like every year, we have an exciting itinerary planned: Aside from seeing many historic vehicles in action, including the Historic Fleet of the Binn Boarding School Complex, a tank biathlon challenge and three gunnery competitions, we will celebrate the English premiere of the movie The Thin Line, made with support of the Coileáin.

And not only us from the Coileáin, but also some of the best teams in the world already announced their presence with vehicles and personell.

So... what are you waiting for?

Hope to see you soon,
Finnya Cor of the Tribe of Cork,
Captain, Iris Boarding School Sensha-Do Team.





Hello and welcome to the Iris Tank Fest 2020!
Conceptually, this is a repeat of last year's Iris Boarding School Sensha-Do Convention with a nicer title, more experience in this and huge plans.
So - what is Sensha-Do? Sensha-Do, or Tankery, is the ficticious sport practiced in the anime Girls und Panzer, which is basically a team death match of teams of high schoolers driving around in tanks (although other game modes are shown as well) using mostly vehicles of World War 2 vintage.
And this will be a convention of teams to celebrate the sport, have a few competitions aside from shooting at each other and generally having fun. And of course, there will be more then enough space for enthusiasts of the sports and the vehicles and the history behind them, as well as people, who have never seen a tank before in their life. The options are limitless!
For more information on the Iris Boarding School Complex, click here.

The start of the IC is planned for the 6th of June, 2020.
I advise even returnees to read the rules again! There have been some changes since last year.

Sadly, we will need rules:
    1. No Godmodding, Meta-Gaming or similar stuff. No exceptions.
      1.1. If you believe, that such an instance is occurring, please bring it to attention on this OOC in a calm manner.
      1.2. ALL NPCs are controlled by me, mostly due to cultural particularities. No exceptions.
      1.3. For convinience, I will play all characters from my nations from this account. For all needing a list and proof...
    2. I am the OP, my word is law. I reserve the right to add to this list of rules or to amend rules if necessary.
    3. IC on the IC-thread, OOC on the OOC-thread. The OOC-thread is there to be used.
    4. Permitted Characters:
      4.1. No high government or higher military officials. This is a convention for normal people to enjoy, not a state ball. The highest-ranked military officials are to be at the rank of Colonel/OF-5. No exceptions.
      4.2. Keep in mind, that your characters are under the right and law of the Free Lands. That includes a total ban on all firearms in private hands (and your people will be there as private persons, end of discussion). If I catch anyone posting anything about his characters having firearms in any form, he or she will be mauled to death by rabid Tines. And no, there will be no escape. No exceptions.
      4.3. The tanks are a different story, but more on them in block 5.
      4.4. Appearance of your characters, a.k.a. Valid Passport Photo. Please choose pictures, that are SFW and where your character is easily identifiable. Anime-Pictures are allowed, but are under the same restrictions. You can also write a description of him or her. And it does not have to be a passport photo. Please use a maximum size of 550 by 550 pixels or hotlink and please do not spoiler.
      4.5. Non-Humans. Non-Human Humanoids are permitted, the rest is not. No magic (and no, I don't care, what you call it). No exceptions.
      4.6. You have to provide an RP-sample (a link to a RP you participated in, from the account you are applying with, showing how you interact with other players, not a post written on the fly) and answer the question “Have you read and understood the rules?” with "Look at that cute Panzer - like a puppy!" No exceptions.
      4.7. No characters or teams from Girls und Panzer. In general, original characters - you can use the pictures of whoever you like (God knows, I do), but the characters themselves need to be original. No exceptions.
    5. Teams. For the purposes of these rules, a "team" is defined as an organized group of practicioners of Sensha-Do and their sports equipment (read, their tanks).
      5.1. If you want to come with a team, fill out the Team Application (see below). I still would like to have one character from the team with his/her own app. If you are not a member state of The Strategic and Economic Alliance (SEA), you will not be allowed to come with a team. No exceptions.
        If you are not a member-state of SEA, you can still send people, who are members of a Sensha-Do Team, but you will not come with a team. No exceptions.
      5.2. Maximum number of vehicles: 8. Exceptions maybe be granted on a case-by-case basis, but do not count on it!!! Ask before you do apply with more then eight vehicles and we will talk about it.
      5.3. Maximum vintage: Tanks, which were in service between 1487 and 1989. No exceptions.
      5.4. Of course, you are very much allowed to bring your own models to this convention (I know, I do) and I would indeed appreciate it very much. However, try to keep it halfway realistic and reasonable and, that's the important part, transportable by train. I would very much prefer it, if there would be no Ratten or other Landships around. No exceptions.
      5.5. The Competitions: We will not do this like the nice ladies and gentlemen over on NSSports, but in a less sophisticated manner, which I will decide on and present once I figured it out myself...
      5.6. Allowed are not only tanks, but also IFVs, APCs, weapon's carriers, SPGs, tank destroyers, armoured cars, assault guns and all manners of armoured support and armoured engineer vehicles.
      5.7. While the sport is shown as an exclusively female sport in the anime and other media, you would be very much allowed to bring some lads as team members. If you do or don't is up to you. Likewise, your teams do not need to be composed entirely of High Schoolers.
    6. No murders. Violence only if all involved agree to it.
      6.1. Security. Will be provided by the Free Lands, if needed by rabid Tine. If you feel the need for your character to have a bodyguard or someone of that kind, it's most likely a break of Rule 4.1.. No exceptions.
    7. No military actions, declarations of war or similar stuff. No exceptions.
    8. Try to avoid oneliners. I know, that it can't be avoided sometimes, but please put a bit of effort into this RP.
    9. If you have questions for me or other players, ask. That's what this OOC is for!
    10. The IC will start on the 6th of June. At that point, all of your characters, tanks and so, and so on will already be at the Iris Boarding School Complex and set up for the convention. We don't need to go through the entire rounds of arrival in the Free Lands and transporting everything to Fortham and so on and so on.


So, that being done, we now come to the fun part: Applications.

My canon is currently in a state of constant flux. Please do not take anything that I say as set in stone.
A 13 civilization, according to this index.

An MT-PMT constitutional monarchy consisting of a personal union of Prussia and Poland. A land of rampant gun ownership, Cold-war equipment, rabid hatred of Germans, militias with enough artillery to turn an armored division into a badly-shaken battalion of light infantry, and terrified American troops counting down the days until they rotate back home.

NEWS: After slew of sexual assaults and reports of disorderly conduct, American troops once more confined to their bases | Mi-24s to be modernized, Su-25s overhauled and re-winged

Oii Selks,
Since we had a good start last time, I'll be in again! As the lassies from the RMA are currently busy aiding the State of Thulia and its neighbors in Corona Control (as mentioned here), and the Vartrup Boarding School Team is currently facing a comprehensive restructuring out of the need, as its founders and many of its members have graduated this year, I decided to create a third team from Lillorainen.
Besides, four enthusiasts are going to attend the convention as well, or rather three enthusiasts and one lassie they're going to convert to enthusiasm during this convention. One will even be from a new NPC nation I created a while ago.
Let's see where this gets going! ^^

Regards,
Lillo

Application for Teams

Name of Team: Visholm State University Sensha-Do Team, a.k.a. Snövarginnor.
Sponsor of Team (institution, company, school, etc.): Visholm State University, Longenager/Visholm.
Country of Origin: The Federation of Lillorainen.
Is the country of origin a member state of the Strategic and Economic Alliance?
    [X] Yes.
    [ ] No.
    (See Rule 5.1..)
Leader of Team: Lykke Thisted.
Head Accountant of Team: Carolin Sjöström.
Chief Mechanic of Team: Alice Taastrup.
Number and types of vehicles brought: 6x APC, type "Mullvad".
A few sentences about the vehicles brought (links are acceptable, too):
    The "Mullvad" (Swedish for 'mole') is an Armed Personnel Carrier and can be described as the predecessor model of the Skildpadde-type APC (which I brought along last time, as you will remember). Starting in 1939, the Mullvad was built for the Visholmer Defense Forces, the Army of the Free Republic of Visholm, which joined the Lillorainian Federal Republic as an associated member state in 1948. Already prior to that, in 1946, the construction of the Mullvad was ended in favor of the Skildpadde, which was supposed to replace the Mullvad slowly. However, the LFR kept the Mullvad in use until 1958, one year before the construction of the Skildpadde was ended as well. Unlike the latter, the Mullvad has never been in use in combat directly.
    In 1963, most Mullvad-APCs were sold to the Republic of Tataguay, noawadays a State of Carlotina, where it henceforth went by the name Cangrejo, 'crab'. Those which were kept by the LFR were kept as relics, until late 2019, when the Snövarginnor ('female Snow Wolves') founded themselves at the VSU as Lillorainen's third Tankery team.
    While the Mullvad has the same size and shape as the Skildpadde, and also uses the same gun type, it only goes about 50 km/h at maximum, but has a range of about 650 km.
    (On a side note, the Mullvad actually has served in combat in an alternate universe - namely, in the 1950s Unification War, where my alternate timeline for the LFR is supposed to start.)
Number of personell brought: 21 (Thisted, Sjöström, and Taastrup + a crew of three for each vehicle of the Mullvad-Squadron).
Team emblem (optional): Might design one in the future. (Maybe really this time ...)

Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom

Thank you!
And indeed, they're fairly fresh - while they have already had their debut against the VBS lassies earlier in the year, they have little experience otherwise, so it's gonna be interesting for them as well. ^^
I would like to note, that I edited the app in order to correct the date to June 1 (I wrote most of these yesterday ...) and to add a missing return address. I might be even more of a lazy sod than you are, but I'm also a perfectionist. ^^
Part II, as announced, will float in shortly. ^^
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom

As you might have assumed, I would love to play this team from my Lillo account as well, for the sake of convenience. ^^ I will also keep it with the visitors from Lillorainen and its surrounding, plus one Shammie, in order to not have too many characters roaming around.

Application for Teams

Name of Team: Jazirat Alwustaa High School Sensha-Do Team, a.k.a. Firan Alsahra.
Sponsor of Team (institution, company, school, etc.): Jazirat Alwustaa High School, Ilinabul; Canton of Antay Qaranisa Forces.
Country of Origin: The Federal Republic of Shamsiyya.
Is the country of origin a member state of the Strategic and Economic Alliance?
    [X] Yes.
    [ ] No.
    (See Rule 5.1..)
Leader of Team: Ceylan Akdemir.
Head Accountant of Team: Jamila Kayyali.
Chief Mechanic of Team: Shirin Izzatuliha.
Number and types of vehicles brought: 6x Battle Tank, type "Malhaa Layliin".
A few sentences about the vehicles brought (links are acceptable, too):
    The Malhaa Layliin ('Nightcrawler') was a battle tank type built for the Shamsiyyan People's Army from 1957 to 1972. It had a length of 8.5 meters, a width of 3.8 meters, and a height of 3.2 meters; the maximum speed was 75 km/h, the range about 200 km.
    This type of tank has been used in combat twice, once directly, once indirectly. In 1964, the SPA and SPN invaded the Kingdom of Ahjada, transporting 150 of these tanks towards Rosfahan, which only few actually arrived at due to failure in communication and lacking experience of the Shamsiyyan soldiers, many of whom were but freshmen, thus barely able to hold a gun - which made it easy for the Royal Ahjadan Navy to successfully strike back. Ahjadan land forces successfully fought the SPA's remaining forces back. In 1973, Shamsiyya sold another round of Malhaa Layliin tanks to the revolutionary forces in Mombenga, where the use was overall more successful, but still didn't lead to a 'Mombengalese People's Republic', as General Nouri had hoped, but to the establishment of the neutral Free State, which exists to this day.
    The Malhaa Layliin was taken out of use in 1978 and became vintage tanks over the years. While the SFDF ordered another battle tank type of the same name in 1992, these old generation of tanks remained standing around for decades, until 2018, when the Jazirat Alwustaa High School, under the support of the local militia (Qaranisa) forces, decided to found Shamsiyya's first Tankery Team, the Firan Alsahra ('Desert Mice'), out of four so far.
Number of personell brought: 27 (Akdemir, Kayyali, Izzatuliha + a crew of four per vehicle).
Team emblem (optional): Please stand by ... ^^

The edits are alright. If you don't mind, I'll not edit my accepting-post, because I am a lazy sod.
As for their experience, we have a wide range of degrees of professionalism present, I think. We have freshly formed and forming teams, we have professionals at the sports, at least one literal military academy - I think, it will be interesting for all!

I don't mind you leaving it as it is, as it's more of a formality. ^^
As for the 'professionalism level gaps', indeed, we have, especially since there are also notable age gaps between our teams, as highschoolers tend to be way younger at average than university students and military academy attendants, for reasons beyond me ... ;)
As for the Shamsiyyan app, right, makes sense. I'm gonna edit one in and let you know as soon as I'm done with it - stay tuned! ^^

Hi, thank you for showing interest in this RP and joining SEA.
Unfortunately, this is not a recruitment thread, so I would like to ask you to send me a TG if you are really interested in joining. However, I ask you beforehand to not get your hopes up too much, mainly because we in SEA all know each other from previous encounters, I'd even say, we're friends, and are experienced RPers. Plus, your nation practices Eugenics, which is, at least as far as the Free Lands are considered ICly, a very big no-no (and I am relatively certain, that I'm not alone with that).
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.

    The Malhaa Layliin ('Nightcrawler') was a battle tank type built for the Shamsiyyan People's Army from 1957 to 1972. It had a length of 8.5 meters, a width of 3.8 meters, and a height of 3.2 meters; the maximum speed was 75 km/h, the range about 200 km.
    This type of tank has been used in combat twice, once directly, once indirectly. In 1964, the SPA and SPN invaded the Kingdom of Ahjada, transporting 150 of these tanks towards Rosfahan, which only few actually arrived at due to failure in communication and lacking experience of the Shamsiyyan soldiers, many of whom were but freshmen, thus barely able to hold a gun - which made it easy for the Royal Ahjadan Navy to successfully strike back. Ahjadan land forces successfully fought the SPA's remaining forces back. In 1973, Shamsiyya sold another round of Malhaa Layliin tanks to the revolutionary forces in Mombenga, where the use was overall more successful, but still didn't lead to a 'Mombengalese People's Republic', as General Nouri had hoped, but to the establishment of the neutral Free State, which exists to this day.
    The Malhaa Layliin was taken out of use in 1978 and became vintage tanks over the years. While the SFDF ordered another battle tank type of the same name in 1992, these old generation of tanks remained standing around for decades, until 2018, when the Jazirat Alwustaa High School, under the support of the local militia (Qaranisa) forces, decided to found Shamsiyya's first Tankery Team, the Firan Alsahra ('Desert Mice'), out of four so far.
Number of personell brought: 27 (Akdemir, Kayyali, Izzatuliha + a crew of four per vehicle).
Team emblem (optional): Please stand by ... ^^

Indeed, they need to. And considering how well it worked last time, in both cases, not to mention the times I did that prior to that, I'm reasonably confident, that this one isn't going to be a total failure, either. ^^

I must admit, that it was not one of my proudest moments last time...
Oh, it indeed won't be!

While we are at it, though, people, two things:
1. There is a rule amendment: Rule 5.6. now includes armored engineer vehicles and armored support vehicles. I don't know, why I forgot them in the first place, but if your lads and/or lassies want to brag with their armoured excavators, now's the time. ; )
2. If you need any information about the Iris Boarding School Complex, here ya go. Of course, this link will be added to the OP in a moment.

The M60a3 Patton is a second-generation American Main Battle Tank used in small numbers by the Reichswehr to train troops for the more advanced Leopard 2a5s and the more numerous PT-91 tanks used by the Reichswehr. The original M60 was introduced into US Army Service in 1959. The A3 variant, introduced in the late 1970s, included various upgrades, including the introduction of computers to assist with aiming and a new rangefinder.

The MTR-2 is a conversion of the BTR-60 designed to function as a repair vehicle.

The T-72BK is a Soviet 2nd-Gen MBT derived from the original T-72. It is a command variant of the T-72B(which has numerous upgrades over the original, including a better fire control system, a new gun, more armor, the addition of composite armor, and so forth). In addition, this specific T-72BK was also modified to allow the installation of ERA kits-however, these can be left on or off at the discretion of the organizers, as well as whether or not the ability to fire ATGMs should be used.

Number of personnel brought:
Company HQ: 1 T-72B. Crew of 3: Alice, Eileen, Charles Hettering
