Dyta looked at Dita, and Dita looked at Dyta.

Something was wrong. The 'elder' sister briefly tilted her chin towards the tank commander, Curtiss. At that Dita could only pout, "But, but -" However, Dyta's indifferent gaze back at the pigtailed girl silenced her, and with a "Hmph!" she did as she was told. Dita turned to the commander and tugged at his belt from her seat. "Hey!" she cheerily called, 'Whatcha doin getting us up on the crest?" The two, though as different as light and dark, both came to the same conclusion and hoped what he said vindicated him. If not...it was a bad sign.

A very bad sign.

"We're training, right? Emeryk here has just failed one little test, One that may get us killed some day." Curtiss said this while grinning however. It seemed he wasn't too torn up about the whole event. "It's better for you all to make your mistakes here, rather than the battlefield. Not ever command your commander will tell you will be a good one. You, as the pilot, have the job of making the Commander's direction become reality in the best way possible. Sometimes, you have to disobey a direct order in order to save the lives of your crew and yourselves" the commander lectured Emeryk.

"However, this next shot is pretty long, so we do need to be up on the hill to give us a little advantage on hitting it, though next time, try taking us around the hill first to be certain there are no enemies."

"Understood, Sir," Emeryk said as he flushed with embarrassment, his face grew a little pink, as he was lectured by the commander. Quickly pushing the feeling aside, the pilot knew dwelling would only make things worse. As such he gave a large exhale of breath and repsyched himself for the task, quite determined to not fail again in front of his crew.

"Pop goes the weasel!~" went Dita, her hands moving in a mimicry of an explosion. "And keep in mind, I'll have it just as bad as you will; you might be in the hull in the front of the weasel, but I'm next to all the ammos!" she called out to the boy. Dyta however, merely stared at her twin sister for a moment with a plain look. The two soon made eye contact, and as though they were telepathically linked, the redheaded loader went on, "Yes! We should name our tank Wild Weasel!"

"No." Went the ponytailed girl.

"But, but - " Went the pigtailed girl.

"No." was Dyta's answer. She pointed a finger at Curtiss, at which her sister's gaze turned upon.

"Commander...~" Dita spoke with a lecherous smile.

"Our Tank is Rekina Four. We're not allowed to change that, sorry" the commander answered quickly, smiling. "Next target, if you can see it, is on the crest of that next hill over. It's an Emplacement, so, we need it gone."

"Another Armor Piercing. No, wait... High explosive, right?" Zali first stated, then questioned, as she began to move the tank's turret to face the target, and began aiming- it was indeed a long shot, and she wasn't sure she could get enough range to hit it down in the braced position.

"High explosive! Duhhhh!~" the tank's loader scolded the gunner. "Unless it's like, - "

"Dita." Dyta spoke quietly.

" - an armored gun emplacement." Dita went on babbling.

"Dita."

"If that's the case, you gotta use armor piercing since -"

"Dita."

" - it's just like a tank, but can't go anywhere." The pigtailed girl looked back at her sister. "Huh?" Dita asked, puzzled as to why Dyta was calling her name.

"Load the gun. High Explosive."

"Eeep!" Dita immediately sprung into action and hefted another 38 pound round from the ammo rack into the gun again. During this fluid, nonstop motion, she could see that it's tip was colored and even shaped differently than the last, as its projectile was supposedly packed with as much explosives as possible, unlike the standard armor piercing which had only enough of a charge to make a mess once it entered the target after passing through armor. Of course, all these features mentioned were only present in the non-traning rounds. This 'high explosive' only made pretty, pretty colors when it exploded - unlike an actual HE round though, its paint was a hint different and didn't have much 'boom' to it. Otherwise, it looked just like the real thing. "Up!" The redhead's face was wordlessly red as her hair.
