shiat, few people give a.

Pretty sweet, except the nose turret looks like it blocks the pilot's forward view...serious design flaw.

The creator was probably imagining a cockpit with encompassing displays and outer shielding, a la Gundam cockpit designs.

Pretty cool piece of artwork, really.

On Chinese social networking site Weibo, people are baffled at how this helicopter would even fly. "This design looks cool but there isn't anything special, does it even fly?" asked Weibo user hanyu_cger.

Except the cockpit sides look open-air...

(Yes, it still looks cool.)

That looks oddly similar to a Jiggabachi anti-tank helicopter from Ghost in the Shell

Visibility problems could be compensated for with displays.  A lot of the antitank operations that attack helicopters are used for these days are from long distances away and behind cover, and already heavily reliant on sensors instead of the pilot's vision.

As TFA pointed out, the bigger problem is the lack of a tail rotor, or any kind of NOTAR system to counter torque.

I was thinking the same thing.  Shirow has such attention to detail with all his tech/weapons in GitS and manages to give it an imposing air at the same time. I wouldn't be surprised if countries started to copying his look in the future.

Is it an excuse for T&A like SW, with some story elements, or is it an excuse for story with some T&A?

It's good enough to be the first anime series I've sat down and watched for probably over a decade. Granted, I'm older now with kids. =) And I'm a tankhead, so there is that. The ep 1 opening battle scene sold me instantly.

There's not really any T&A, unless you mean 'treads and armour'. Tank porn ftw. They're things of beauty. The story is lightweight (girls enter tankery tournament to save their school) but the tank action is rockin' and the universe is... unique.

From the other pictures, it appears the cockpit is lowered from the fuselage, where it encapsulates the pilot.

Im not finding a US release. Did you import? I speak only enough Japanese to order a beer, ask where the bank is, and count to 99,999.

Available officially dubbed on Crunchy Roll. Pretty decent show as mentioned above. The exteriors, interiors, relative weapon/armor capabilities, and crew positions (hell even the gun sight views) are historically accurate.

Lol...so, the girls' school...where they have tanking as a sport...is on an enormous aircraft carrier?

I love Japan...I think I'm hooked on this show just for the weirdness of the premise...

Heh, and parents think football causes a lot of concussions...

Actually, Crunchyroll has subbed, not dubbed. That's pretty much their thing -- bringing new subbed anime to the U.S. (often the same day of Tokyo airing).

Heh, passed that on to a couple of buddies, they're both hooked as well...now they just have to explain to their wives the whole underage schoolgirl thing...
