View Full Version : Iku's damage pose

In Iku's damage pose. What is that on her left middle finger? A grenade pin? if so WHAT?! Where!?

I only ask because I don't remember Iku having any grenades. And seeing that in my command office is a little unnerving

I always thought it's just broken down propeller from one of her torpedoes, could be wrong though.

I first thought it had something to do with the missing 3rd torpedo but. what part of a torpedo has a ring with a small stick. The torpedo would be all solid parts without holes

the key to arm the torpedo perhaps?

True it could have something to do with arming/setting depth/speed. But it doesn't exist at all in the undamaged art

There's that mysterious piece of green metal with red circles too.

Leyana Hmm that could be a part of her seaplane. Those red circles look a lot like the circles on the Yokosuka E14Y seaplane.

The thingie above the seaplane's wings looks like a part of a catapult. Maybe what she holds in her hand is the pin for the catapult?

It looks less like a plane and more like a piece of cloth though.

So out of everything you could have looked at in I-19's damage pose...it was a little metal ring in her hand.

....There just might be some hope left in this community after all.

WNG_M-109A6 The metal ring is pretty distracting.

Google image search on "I-19 submarine", and in many images you see a ring array (radio? some other sensor?) on top of the conning tower. Not really visible in the original art, though I can't look at Iku pics too much while at work......

@WNG_M-109A6 (http://www.himeuta.net/members/wng_m-109a6/) I don't know if I really qualify for this hope you speak of. For the first month of playing I thought that Errorchan had fallen on her face instead of bowing to apologize.

Iku's personality just worries me after I read Tonda's macho admiral doujin. So seeing what could be a grenade pin, I really don't know what iku would have done with a grenade.

As for the green thing. Part of a hatch? the corners are too sharp to be a plane. A ribbon would have made sense but her hair ribbons are pink.

edit: did some image searches on I-19 submarine and I think that green thing actually is part of a plane. The main wing section completely torn off from the rest.

Found it. The ring is to the bottom right of the 3 tall towers. This is not present in her normal art. What does it do? Im guessing some kind of receiver for radio

Much relief was felt

I have a sinking suspicion that the ring is a radio D/F-ing loop. IIRC many WW2-era combat aircraft had a similar system.

Also, that sub model is f-cking awesome. I want one.

WNG_M-109A6 I got the image from IJN submarine I-19 - Ready for Inspection - Maritime - Britmodeller.com (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234918647-ijn-submarine-i-19/)

The poster said that he home-made some parts(aerial wires)
