    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    The thing that's really throwing me off about this event is Free France being depicted as hyper-religious (just get a load of Richelieu's speech, she was really laying it on thick), even though it was actually Vichy France that got much of its support from devout Catholics. There's also how the mere concept of shipgirls would have given the actual Vichy French a collective stroke, given how insanely misogynistic they were even by the standards of the 1940s.

    For the few people in this community still playing this "game": Helicopter battleships? (Kindly ignore that the IJN sure as hell never operated the Sikorsky S-51 or Westland WS-51, and there's only one source that attests to the JMSDF ever operating that aircraft.)

    Graf Spee trying to make chocolate while Z46 and Admiral Hipper look on in shock (and possibly even horror, judging from Hipper's expression) will never get old.

    If you're wondering why you got 1+3+1+4 gems: 1314 (pinyin: yī sān yī sì; Cantonese Yale: yāt sāam yāt sei) sounds like "一生一世" (pinyin: yīshēngyīshì; Cantonese Yale: yāt sāng yāt sai; literally: "one life one lifetime") meaning "forever" and is often used romantically. As for myself, the only boat I've bothered oathing so far was Laffey. Might as well set her as secretary for the time being. In other news, Hornet says hello.

    An Yang and Chiang Yang? So, when are we going to get Kwei Yang (ex-Twining) and Kun Yang (ex-Yarnall)?

Farming destroyer blueprints is suffering, though.

    It should be noted that Mikasa also defected to the U.S. Navy. Considering that she served during a time when the Japanese armed forces actually treated civilians and POWs honorably and decently, no surprise that she would rather go over to the Americans and British rather than continue to serve in an IJN dominated by psychopaths like Akagi and Kaga.

    There's dislike, and then there's defecting to the U.S. Navy because you think 1st CarDiv has gone mad and will bring the rest of Japan to ruin if they aren't stopped. History in AL's timeline will be far kinder to the cranes than it will be to the foxes.

    Auspicious Crane is truly auspicious, as I also got one of my own while trying to get the construction dailies out of the way. Now all I need is a Soaring Crane to complete the pair. Still muddling through the B maps, though.

    "Abukuma (阿武隈) was the sixth and last of the vessels completed for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in the Nagara class of light cruisers, and like other vessels of her class, she was intended for use as the flagship of a destroyer flotilla. She was named after the Abukuma River in the Tōhoku region of Japan. She saw action during World War II in the Attack on Pearl Harbor and in the Pacific, before being disabled in the Battle of Surigao Strait in October 1944, then bombed and sunk by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) off the coast of the Philippines." Not only is she not a destroyer (though she was meant to work alongside destroyers), her character design is based on an oni, not a cat. Meanwhile, London, Cleveland, and Arizona all just dropped for me on A3 (the last two on the exact same run, no less). Fairly sure I've already used up all my luck for this event lol

    But seriously, take any random Abyssal princess from Kancolle and paint her red, and you could totally pass her off as an Ironblood ship. Conversely, repaint an Ironblood ship with white and gray, and she could more than pass for an Abyssal.
