It could also be that when you copy stuff out of Stupidworld, Erfworld auto-translates its Stupid into proper Language. I think this makes sense, since Erfworld itself operates (ie the Towers) on a form of communication that's way more 'universal' so to speak, so funneling any coherent alien speech into Language should be possible.

    Also, on the vertical enfilade: the more different angles you can fire on an opponent from, the less likely they are to find cover that protects them from every angle of fire. That's the principle behind an "L-shaped" ambush: if all the ambushers are in the woods along the side of the road, some of the people being ambushed might make it into a ditch or some other form of low cover before being hit. Having fire come in from both 12 and 3 o'clock means you have to find something that protects you from both angles. A vertical enfilade just makes it even harder, since now you need something that provides top-cover, too.

    Plus, if Charlie was ever invaded by non-flying units, if the vertical enfilade is a chimney with a bend at the top, it provides a withdrawal (or repositioning) route that the enemy can't follow.

    Let's not place too much importance on the necessity of the Wonky Wrench in this process.

    Bonnie told Ace that Claud was the one responsible for the creation of the rifles with the Auto-specialing feature. As far as we know, the first time Claud ever laid hands on the Wonky Wrench was when Ivan was instructing him in how to use it for repatriation. And while there may have been a Dish-enabled link to teach Claud how to fabricate a rifle with the Auto-special, he made so danged many of them that to suppose Charlie was involved for ALL of them is just implausible.

    As far as the ammo is concerned, that looks to be plain old Dirtamancy. Note that Sizemore is able to make rounds using nothing more than an original magazine of rounds as a template.


    I agree we don't really have enough information to guess, even about whether a link is involved. What percentage of a days juice does it take to make a gun? Even if you could only make one a day, It wouldn't really take very long for there to be enough guns to equip 600 archons, particularly as many of those guns seem to use up more than one archon like the tripods and the AA guns. That said I dont think making more guns is a real option. They are under fire NOW. They quickly need a defensable position and to not have at least one of them preoccupied with other things.

    A friend of mine teaches German at a university. This is his translation of the full archival page that was linked to here: https://digital.library.villanova.edu/Item/vudl:348181#?c=&m=&s=&cv=214&xywh=-3529%2C-164%2C9894%2C5178


    Quote:
    If this is the case, then the company leader must be called, if possible before the shooting begins, so he has time to recommend which platoon should switch targets with which. If the company leader comes to this realization too late, then the target switch is exceptionally awkward and cannot be executed as well as it would have been beforehand. The arms or platoon leader who receives the “crossfire!” command must execute it immediately. This is one of the few orders necessary for fire control that must be carried out immediately.

    The execution is as shown in pictures 27 and 28, indeed always occurring such that the lines of fire remain next to each other and never actually cross again. This crossfire can also be used to fire for effect, in order to have a greater impact on certain targets. Thus it is already easily assessable in columns, when the individual columns are viewed from the side. This crossfire is also advantageous against artillery targets, in order to reach somewhat beyond the shields.


    So there you have it.

    I didn't even see the bit of comic at the top at first, which made the rest a little abrupt and unprepared.
