    Request - Weight of Explosives, 21" Mk V

    The Polish destroyers of ORP Burza and ORP Wicher were of the Type D1 Conjugator of La Precision Moderne.

    KS Update 105

    So reading the text and I found a mistake in the text. When ORP Wicher talks and uses the word Kapitan should Kapitanie - because it is related to the Polish grammar and respect for the rank of military man. When he does not talk to him or he is not in a room, for example there should be a Kapitan.

    Starting ports

    I would add Gdynia - the main base of the Polish Navy for ships, naval aviation base, fortified base and commercial port. Hel was the main base of the Polish Navy for submarines and a spare naval base. Gdynia had good anti-aircraft defense and could take large ships in the port.

    General Victory Belles Questions Thread

    I wonder about the warships that were built during the war, but the work was interrupted or unfinished because of the beginning of the war, the destruction during the war or because of the end of the war sent to scrap. If VB changes history, then how does this matter look like?

    KS Update 102: U-29, Voykov, and the Battle Engine!

    Slavic mythology is very rich in demons. Divided into good, bad and having different intentions: Boginka - in the pre-Christian beliefs of the Slavs, a female demon who is a personification of the forces of nature, hostile to people. The Boginka inhabited swamps, lakes, rivers and the sea. Women who died during childbirth, suicide and murderer of children were to become goddesses. They were imagined as ugly women with saggy breasts, large heads and crooked legs, or as beautiful young girls. The nymphs attacked the obstetricians, changed children, scare the horses at the waterhole and cattle in the field, destroy fishing nets. Bies - in the pre-Christian beliefs of the Slavs, personification of an unspecified evil spirit, demon of evil. The name bies derives from the Slavonian * bĕsъ, from the pro-European * bhoidh-, meaning 'causing fear, horror. The devils could penetrate into individual people and direct their actions (hence the term "zbiesiony"), they were also attributed to guarding treasures hidden in the earth. They were in forests, swamps and in deep water. After the Christianization of the Slavdom, the term bies began to be used as a synonym for the concept of the devil. Utopiec (locally known as topic, flux, utoplec, utoplec, utopek, topek, waserman) - evil and deceitful water demon from Slavic beliefs, often identified with a waterman and confused with a drowning man. Drowsies were born from the souls of drowned people and aborted fetuses. Similarly to waterers, all water reservoirs inhabited (in some applications including wells and roadside ditches) and drowned bathers and animals crossing the river. In some places they were also responsible for floods of rivers and flooding fields and meadows. The drowners took the form of tall, very thin people with slippery green skin, large head and dark hair. During the new moon, the drowners came out onto the shore. They often lured people to each other, playing with them in riddles. The person who tried to cheat on the riddles was melting immediately. Option 2 @Käpt'n KorkyIn 39 there were countries Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, which in 1940 were incorporated by force into the Soviet Union. However, the Polish communists are a long topic. The fact was the Polish communists in the Second Fleet of the Polish Navy and showed up only on September 17, 1939 trying to rebel, shooting their own brothers and officers or escaped and joined the red greeting the so-called. liberators. However, they did not get any unit, however, they helped to extract sunken individuals and were left to Soviet mariners and navy. A real communist Polish navy was established in July 1945

    The first mysterious ship is in my opinion Vifor class in my opinion fits like a glove. The ships were made in Italy, commissioned by Romanians, Greco-Roman, but two were sold to Spain as Melilla and Ceuta.

    Seasonal Belles Commission

    Fat Thursday is a traditional Christian feast marking the last Thursday before Lent and is associated with the celebration of Carnival. Because Lent is a time of fasting, the next opportunity to feast would not be until Laetare Sunday, and after that not until Easter. Traditionally it is a day dedicated to eating, when people meet in their homes or cafés with their friends and relatives and eat large quantities of sweets, cakes and other meals usually not eaten during Lent. Among the most popular all-national dishes served on that day are pączki in Poland or berliner, fist-sized donuts filled with rose marmalade, and angel wings (faworki), French dough fingers served with powdered sugar.
