  4. British torpedo 450mm wz.A
  5. This song should become the hymn for destroyers in the game ^^
  6. I know the case, but it was not his saber but the deputy captain. Franciszek Dabrowski, who was the true commander defense of Westerplatte. The real saber of the commander Westerplatte mjr. Henryk Sucharskiego lost and therefore borrowed from the captain. Francis Dabrowski assured that he would return it. To go into captivity look good, as an officer of the Polish army Do you know that? German soldiers have discovered ammunition depots allowing defense for another fortnight, which has shocked the German officers.
  7. Cool if other use of the second Polish Navy together with river battleships
  8. As I read the logbook of ship Schleswig-Holstein it seems to me that it could not function as a watch. It is assumed that the Westerplatte fire from his cannons at 4:45 on September 1, 1939, was the beginning of World War II in Europe. De facto the fire started three minutes later, at 4:48, and the reason for the delay was the need to switch the ship from the depths of the Port Channel to the Bend of Five Whistles. At. 04:43 Commander of the battleship ordered an artillery to open fire. Five minutes later the 280 mm and 150 mm caliber guns fired missiles towards Westerplatte. However, no bullets from the first shot no hit the target. Almost all the bullets flew over the Westerplatte and fell into the Baltic Sea or in the trees on the WST ... This was confirmed by the veterans of the ship and the last dead defender of the Westerplatte five years ago . In my opinion, S-H should wear glasses. Pretty interesting proposals Corky
  9. So I'm wondering how it might look further in the VB universe. Unfortunately, my country's history looks like a Gordian knot. Events such as September 12, 1939 - Abbeville, September 17, 1939 - Soviet Invasion of Poland, Tehran Conference, Yalta Conference had a powerful influence on history. If this is to be an alternative version of history, then the Polish Navy could have been able to execute the Z or W plan. Full scale naval submarine warfare with Polish submarines on German and Russian ports and torpedo attacks using Cant-506s. To be more interesting, there were two governments at the end of the war. Polish government-in-exile in London and the Provisional Government of National Unity in Warsaw and two Polish navies. Another matter is how the relations between the Polish belles, and the German and Soviet Russia's belles relations would look. Forced co-operation? Friendly co-operation or total hostility to both sides and distrust.
  10. I know a a couple jokes about Germans Why do Germans drive the Mercedes? Because they have a viewfinder in the front and feel like in a Tiger. Three Germans walk into a BAR. Gdzie leżą Niemcy? Pod Stalingradem. Polish joke with wordplay from the occupation of Poland. There are two trenches: German and Polish. And so they fight with each other, they shoot themselves, but so far none of the parties hit. Until finally one of the Poles said: - What is the most popular German name? - Hmmmm ... maybe Hans? - ABOUT! Good! We scream Hans and maybe some deer will go out and shoot him. And they scream: - Hans! - Ja!? - The kraut leaned out ... JEB! Got a bullet . - Hans! - Ja!? - JEB! Next... - Hans! - Ja!? - JEB! And so they beat them up, there were only a few ... They think and think: - Maybe we will do that too? - JA! What is the popular Polish name? - Maybe Zdzichu? - Ja gut! And they scream: - Zdzichu! - (silence) - Zdzichu! - (silence) - Zdzichu! - Zdzicha is not there, is on vacation ... It's you Hans? - Ja! - JEB!
  11. Began, the work of movie and television series ORP "Orzeł".
  12. I do not know if there was such a question, but during the war from 1939-1945 there was an internment of warships in neutral ports of neutral countries, such as Sweden's Polish submarines. What is happening when the belles will go a neutral port. Is it interned or something else? For example, the Swedes in the case of fighting against the Germans or threatening the fall of Finland wanted to include Polish submarines in their fleet. On the other hand, the Finns during the Winter War with the Soviet Union wanted Polish submarines to hire Polish Navy submarines with their Polish crews from Sweden.
  13. Ok I'll ask that question in Lore questions. Thanks ^^

  15. According to historical data, the first sunken warship at the beginning of the second war it was ORP "Mazur" - heroic school ship, which fought to the end. Ex German torpedo boat "V-105". ORP "Mazur" in defense of the Polish coast in 01.09.1939 Before the war, "Mazur" perform tasks related to transport war material from Gdynia to Hel. The outbreak of war found him in the harbor war in Oksywie, where it was moored at the west pier in a pool No. 2 commander of the ship was Captain mar. Tadeusz Rutkowski. That day she had to evacuate to Hel employee of the Department of Information of the Independent Fleet Command, Anna Starkównę. At. 14.00 Port attacked the 32 German planes dive-Junkers Ju 87B 'Stuka' squadron IV. (St) / LG 1. Ready to leave port, "Mazur", with half the crew of machine positions led anti-fire with 40 mm cannon and machine guns cal. 13.2 mm and 7.92 mm. At the end of the raid on the ship came a bomber, which dropped three bombs. The first of them were in a part of the beak lifting it away from the rest of the ship. The second exploded at the height of the pier running guns No. 1 and No. 2, and the explosion threw the ship from the waterfront at approx. 70 meters. Through broken skin began to fill with water, and the ship slowly began to sink. Despite numerous destruction and the loss of about 40 people, the other crew members conducted antiaircraft fire. The longest - until the waves washed away their deck, fought Lieutenant sailor. Jacenty Dehnel and artillery sailor Waclaw Armada attendant stern caliber anti-aircraft gun. 40 mm. From the wreckage they were dismantled and placed on the ground 75 mm cannon. Other equipment installed in improvised armored train "Smok Kaszubski", which used the Land Coastal Defence. After the war, the wreck was excavated by the Germans and cut into scrap. The heroic attitude of the staff and continuous fire antiaircraft limit losses on the first day at the port despite the superior forces of the enemy in the air. ORP "Mazur" became the first Polish Navy ship sunken in combat and the first Allied warship sunk during World War II.
