[April Fools 2024] Toramaru, Iroha's tank

image

Today I would like to suggest a tank from Gehenna Academy’s Pandemonium Society, Toramaru.

Toramaru is an early model of the Tiger E that we are all familiar with. However, it has the “subtle” differences of having no Zimmerit or field tools on the hull and an “On patrol” sign dangling from the barrel.
Toramaru is operated by the only commander in Pandemonium Society, Natsume Iroha.

Toramaru would act similar to the in-game Tiger E we already have but with just a few different visual models along with some unique crew voices. Toramaru offers an 8.8cm KwK 36 with a Maybach HL230 petrol engine that gives it a top speed of 45 km/h, the same as the Tiger E we have currently in the game.

Iroha is a 2nd year student and is the tank commander of Toramaru. She’s a very laid-back character who loafs around a lot when given tasks by her superior, Makoto. However, when she’s given jobs by anyone other than Makoto, she makes sure that they get done (while complaining of course) simply because she is way too prideful to have others view her as a lazy person.
Iroha loves to loaf around so much that she even has a secret hidden section inside the tank where she can just relax. Her favorite pastimes are playing video games and reading books.
When she isn’t being lazy, she’s actually one of the most hard working and logical students that Pandemonium has to offer, all while always cleaning up after the messes Makoto ends up making.

Sicrit documents from manufacturer state 120 km/h top speed, which is sustainable for 5 minutes.
Firerate estimates based on official videos indicate up to 30 rounds per minute.
