  166. ASSIGNMENT: T-34/85 Model 1944
  167. - (2nd Year) Wakuza Nezumi (Commander): She had the luxurious and honorable post of commanding one of two Panzer Maus in the world, and was defeated.

Her favorite tank is the Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B Konigstiger.
  168. - (3rd Year) Assam (Gunner): The calm, gentle, and good natured Ace Gunner from Saint Gloriana. Despite her bad taste in tea leaves, she has a good sense of humor about everything.

  169. - (1st Year) Alisa (Loader/Radio): Originally an Ace Commander aboard Saunders High School, she has now been demoted to the rank of Loader and Radio Operator due to her chronic tendency to cheat at things.

  170. - (1st Year) Izumi Izumi Izumi (Driver): The enthusiastic driver of Chi-Ha-Tan. Her personality is fiery in light of her rather silly name.

  185. - (SO) Mayfair Stern (Gunner): Red-haired, a bit of a monkey when it comes to affairs, but flexible as all get out. Has a constant rivalry with Brook for the position of Team Lieutenant.
  186. - (SO) Brook Starling (Radio): Beautiful, enough that the rest of the Cheerleading team answers her beck and call half the time as well. Is so concerned with her own self-appearance that she often forgets about important things like friends, family, and even pets.
  187. - (SO) Ren Estrella (Loader): The most physically strongest of the Cheerleaders, and often serves as the bottom for lifts or for tosses and flyers. Unlike the other Cheerleaders, she actually lives rather messily and often shows up to practice with unkempt hair, no make up, and looking terrible in comparison to everyone else. (she claims she has unkempt beauty.)
  188. - (SO) Margo "Stella" Roberts (Driver): Stella is notable for having been struck by lightning last year during a very electrifying performance. She hasn't been the same since, but she's notably much more energetic, twitchy, and surprisingly good at math due to the event.

Led by the ever cheery "Ragin' Cajun" Unlimited Captain Perrine Hobart, their line-up is an inconsistent roster of prototypes, one-off variants, and other strange vehicles of the WWII time period.
  206.  
  207. SAUNDERS HIGH SCHOOL (Nagasaki Prefecture) (DEFEATED)
  208. A Japanese School styled after its incredibly wealthy and rich American benefactors. Kei or "Kay" as she likes to spell it, commands an awesome force of Shermans of all variants. This makes Saunders a very flexible force on the field. Backed up Ace Gunner Naomi and Ace Commander Alisa, Kay's Senshadou team is one of the most elite (if somewhat unlucky) Japanese teams in the ITL.
  209.  
  210. ST. GLORIANA GIRLS COLLEGE (Kanagawa Prefecture)
  211. A very stereotypically British school from the Japanese. St. Gloriana's Senshadou team is ponderous, but well organized and quick to exploit weakness. Commanded by "Darjeeling", St. Gloriana's Senshadou boasts an honorable and well-trained team.
  212.  
  213. KUROMORIMINE WOMEN'S COLLEGE (Kumamoto Prefecture)
  214. Better known to English speaking countries as "Black Forest Peak" or "Schwarzwaldspitze", Black Forest Peak holds the Nishizumi dojo, one of the most elite schools for Senshadou in the world. A nine-year champion in the Japanese Senshadou Nationals, their reign has been broken in recent years by a string of defeats. Despite this, their commander, Maho Nishizumi, is still feared and respected for her command and coordination of a well-balanced force of German tanks of all types.
  215.  
  216. CHI-HA-TAN WOMEN'S ACADEMY (Kyoto Prefecture) (DEFEATED)
  217. A school that values honor and discipline above all. They are commanded by the studious Kinuyo Nishi. Although they've never actually won a title before in the school's existence, they're determined to at least make their opponent's day a rainy one. Their roster consists of a wide variety of Japanese tanks, making them a very mobile force, if a bit fragile and underpowered.
  218.  
  219. PRAVDA HIGH SCHOOL (Hokkaido Prefecture) (DEFEATED)
  220. A joint Russo-Japanese school, Pravda is a bit behind the times especially with the fall of the Soviet Union some decades ago. Despite that, Pravda is known as one of the most elite schools for Tankery. Thanks to the strict command of the "Swirling Snow" Katyusha and her stalwart Russian womanservant "Blizzard" Nonna, Pravda's Tankery program is rightfully feared as one of the best and brightest teams in the ITL. Their roster sports a variety of Russian tanks of the WWII period, from the limitless T-34, to the imposing IS-2, the gargantuan KV-2.
  221.  
  222. ANZIO ACADEMY (Aichi Prefecture) (DEFEATED)
  223. An Italian styled Japanese school based out of the Aichi Prefecture. Although rather small in terms of it's team and lacking in any real heavy hitters, they make up for this with sheer enthusiasm. Their Commander Chiyomi "Anchovy" Anzai is a crafty girl, who puts her subordinates on a high standard. Their ambush and deception tactics are second to none, but fall apart against more superior tanks. Considering Italian tanks the Semovente SPG line, the Carro Armato P40, and the CV-33 tankettes, that's not saying much.
  224.  
  225. KONIGSBERG ACADEMY (Hamburg, Germany)
  226. An underfunded German Academyship, and one of the only German Academyships after a downsizing of the Academyship Program. Despite this, their Panzerfahren program known colloquially around Germany as the "Panzerfahren Lehr", is feared as one of the most Elite teams in Europe. They have come under hard times in terms of funding and manpower, but their tanks which consist of a heavy roster of late-war German tanks such as the indomitable King Tiger, Jagdtiger, Panther, and StuGs means they're nothing to shake a stick at. Their best trait however comes from their ability to coordinate, thanks to the ever-charismatic Piper Blancbois, and her stalwart Officers Emi Nakasuka and Helga Bayerlein.
  227.  
  228. KURSK GIRLS BOARDING SCHOOL (Magadan, Russia)
  229. One of the most prestigious Academyships in Russian service, and for good reason. Kursk Girls Boarding School holds many programs of culture, art, and science. Its Tankery Program is celebrated as one of the most Elite teams in Europe, and they have consistently scored high in every tournament they have participated in for the past 40 years. Their roster consists exclusively of casemate Russian tanks, such as the ever numerous SU-76 Assault Gun, the versatile SU-85 Tank Destroyer, all the way up to famed "Zveroboy" SU-152 and ISU-152. They are commanded by the incredibly dirty, but legendarily patient, Oryola Kuznetsov. Her much cleaner sister, Natalya Kuznetsova, is her second-in-command. Together, the two have formed one of the most unbeatable teams in the World.

  232. OTHER CHARACTERS
  233.  
  234. PRINCIPAL EUSTACE TENNYSON - The venerable old Principal of Lafayette Girls Academy. Cool, level-headed, but understand that he has to deal with a wild Sophomore, a doormat Junior, and a bitch Senior. Contrary to popular belief, he only really holds power over the Faculty while only occasionally having a hand in student affairs.
  235.  
  236. THE SENIOR COUNCIL - The seniormost students aboard Lafayette Girls Academy. Led by the bitchy, antagonistic, and cheery President Lilah D. Fredendall. Her Vice President is the hot, nice, but very intimidating Bernadette Francine Fairless. The rest of the council also consists of the crabby Treasurer Henrietta Carnegie, the lazy Andrea Frick, and the caring but somewhat ragey Claire Walker.
  237.  
  238. THE LAFAYETTE RUNNER STAFF - Headed by the shadowy but apparently nice Wilma Hearst, the Lafayette Runner is LGA's premier student run monthly newspaper. Although everyone knows that its basically Fredendall's paid-for monthly ego booster, it does also occasionally have news. Prominent reporters on the team include Georgia Jones, Stella Hutchins, Charlotte Taylor, and Edna Rosewater, all of whom are a bit determined to get a story no matter where they have to go or where they have to hide.
  239.  
  240. THE HALL MONITORS - More officially known as Student Security, Hall Monitors serve the purpose of being a student-run police force aboard LGA. There are three things you can really expect from them: Being Irish, being corrupt, or being somewhat incompetent. Alana Pinkerton and Irene O'Bannon are more or less the most famously corrupt Hall Monitors on Fredendall's payroll. The only Hall Monitors who don't seem to be taking money on the side are Megan O'Hara and Lynn O'Brian, but that's really only because they're more concerned with each other and the full letter of the law.
  241.  
  242. NAVAL STUDIES - The Naval Studies Students form the vast majority of crew aboard the Lafayette Girls Academy, and indeed any Academyship. There are many different departments which are integral to the running of LGA, including Engineering, Merchant, Electronics, Science, Rescue, Medical, Navigation, etc. These include students like basketball fan Lauren Wild, Nebraskan-born corn loving Gretel Mendel, and the top dentistry major student Francine "Franny" Pierce. The Naval Studies world is quite different from General Studies, as while they do get free tuition, they have to work eight-hour shifts on top of managing their classes.
  243.  
  244. GENERAL STUDIES - Academyships pride themselves in having a variety of programs for students to study in and later major in. General Studies students form up a great percentage of students on Academyships. While they do not serve any actual working purpose like Hall Monitors or Naval Studies, they serve in important role by paying tuition to go to classes and stay aboard the ship. Most General Studies students attend clubs after school, like the Model UN, the Folk Music club led by Nicole Grant, the Reading and Writing Club which consists of Rachel Bradbury and Loretta Niven, the Film Club led by Josefina Vilsmaier, and much more.
  245.  
  246. JURGEN MISHKA - Better known simply as "Mr. Mishka." He runs the only ITL-Approved Tank Shop on LGA. Beyond that, he's also old enough to have actually have fought in the war, having been a loader in a T-34/76. Still as spry as the day he was born however. A genuinely nice easygoing man, and is on friendly terms with Lisa Cowell. His grand-nephew Huxley Mishka is also on board and serves as his apprentice at the shop.
  247.  
  248. THE POOL FAMILY - Gertrude's family lives in the nicer districts of D.C. Her father, Garnett Pool is a man who, while being a bit awkward, loves his children very much and loves watching them succeed. Gertrude's sister Griselda is a very wild Tank-nerd who wishes to attend LGA next year. Gertrude's mother Gilda Pool unfortunately suffers from a case of being incredibly dead. All of them are very good friends of the Smith family. Her extended family includes the Pulaski family which consist of her awkward cousin Gordon and her cousin Ashley who is Captain of her own Helicraft Team. It also includes the Paddock family, her mother's side of the family, which also consist of cotton farmers Darrell and Derrell Paddock and their father Uncle Daryl. Overall, the Pool family is a tight-knit little group.
