The big important battle for the SS Miho is the SS Kimiko. Miho is stuck in safe house out in the sticks and Kimi is making out with HER Piro-kun in the back of HER friend Mugi's little car. That rat !!! By the time she gets back in the fight, she's going to have to really give it a go to make up for lost time.
In Cankolle terms, Kimi is destroyer-escort, while Miho is a light cruiser. But even so she's going to have to make up for a LOT of damage. Time for a little unauthorized ship-yard work. Miho's coming out of dry-dock as a heavy cruiser-slash-battle-cruiser. Not a lot of armor but seriously upgunned and re-engined. Who's gonna pay for all this work? The TaxPayers of course. Because they love us and because we have nuclear weapons, and they don't. Admiral Piro-wiro-kun is as good as in the bag.
The SS-Kimiko is GOING DOWN !!!
um, err... you know what I mean.
Although from a more realistic standpoint, Miho is not going to choose this method of getting Piro's attention and he would just be shocked and speechless anyway. But Miho X Piro forever !!!
