"Witches? Just a bunch of glory seeking kids."

So how would you think normal soldiers feel about the Witches?

Well hello Patton Girls!

They were well-liked in the Afrika doujins. I can imagine it would be similar in other theatres.

Maybe the magic wears off for those who work with them too much.

I think most soldiers would be humbled since they're best equipment only has a fraction of a chance compared to a witch.
>> No. 791 ID: b82920
i think it would be a similar love/hate relationship to any other situation in the military, IE, pogues and grunts, army/navy/airforce, et cetera.
>> No. 799 ID: 64c4e0
Hey, military poster here (Navy), and if they are anything like our pilots, they would become either a joke, or if they are like the Air Force pilots who own the base I'm stationed to, they would become a target of humor/jokes/plane otaku/fanboys.
>> No. 800 ID: a13c60

But the question is, are your pilots the only ones that can effectively fight against alien invaders bound to annihilate the human race?
It's okay if you can't talk about confidential things.

At the least, there would probably just be jealousy. Like soldiers feeling resentful because they weren't lucky enough to be born with magic powers. And the fact that even though they don't have the advantage of magic they still have to fight, and in far more brutal conditions than the witches with heavy losses and no pampered living.

Besides some higher-ups people seem to only have positive thoughts towards the witches in the media. I know it's fun to think about SW sometimes more realistically, and perhaps as more dark, but this franchise isn't really like that. I say the soldiers are like the civilians, they're grateful and have massive fan clubs for the witches.
Witches only get bad looks from the evil men whose hatred is driven by the convenient plot.

I joke about the airdales that they provide us enough cover so missiles don't hit us or mines (Submariner here), but it would be like our jokes about how the Air Force doesn't really deploy, though I could see the Marines adopting tank witches. My marine and army friends talk about their random iraqi dogs, I could imagine a tank witch becoming a mascot/child substitute for the married/trooper with kids. Man, I could so see submarines becoming even more important in SW then they are in mainline reality because since Neuroi Hate Water, submarines would become a main means of transport, and since witches can STVOL pretty easily, an I-400 class would become ...well cheaper, and much less vulnerable than a normal carrier would be.

I think it would also depend a hell of a lot on the country. Japanese defense forces would be more respectful than American Marines, for example (or the time period equivalent)

Kinda reminds me of this image.

Infantry: "This sucks"
Tank crews: "I like the way this sucks"
Tank Witches: "I wish this would suck more!"
Strike Witches: "Sure does suck down there"
Navy: "What? Minna's not singing? This sucks."

The witches are worshiped. You can see that in the first volume of the novels, for example.

I would assume that the Air Force would be like this:

"They think they're so special; We can be bad too!"

As a rank-and-file I would cream my pants literally if girls without pants were to fight for me.
Otherwise I will curse them if they aren't where I was posted to.

"What do you call those people again? Those girls with magic powers?"

"Witches. You know, grandma was a witch"

"Your grandmother? No shit?"

"She was, laid her hands on people and cured them. Took away sickness, wounds, you name it."
