fajnie, ale jak jest na polskiej stronie to chyba wypadało by przetłumaczyć ?
te parę linijek pod obrazkami to ile ?
10 min roboty ?
Mi to tam rybka. ale dzieci w wieku 8-9 lat nie czytają i nie piszą jeszcze po "klingońsku"
a patrząc na to co się dzieje na randomach to albo one graja, albo wojsko testuje inteligencje rezusów :{

The article isn't translated to Polish because regional community meeting reports are always done in for the language team/community the event was aimed at.

Polish Community events are only reported/shared to the Polish community.
German Community events are only reported/shared with the German community.

The visit to Parola was an EU/EN event which is why the news is only available in English.  I don't understand you typing your message in Polish as a complaint when you know this is the English speaking news section and you can apparently understand what the article is about.

It was awesome, at the start I was really worried about smashing my nose/mouth off the open hatch but after a while you get your balance and position sorted and can predict the bumps.

The entire day was really cool from start to finish and the Finnish people were sooo helpful. We've got a lot of good feedback for when we next return and we'll make sure the next visit is bigger and better in all possible ways!

That is quite awesome!

Salmiak is great stuff, we have it in the Netherlands as well together- or mixed with liquorice.

Salmiak icecream is even better. Mmmhhhmmmhm...
It seemed like a nice sunny day. Hopefully it was enjoyable for all. Bit sad I could not make it there myself.  :sad: Maybe next time.

I bet you were quite busy with the event, but is there chance you guys might have got some nice review of some rare soviet tanks maybe? Poking challenger here mainly. T28, some of those TDs like ISU 152... is there T100 by any chance? I know Finn's captured one T100 during winter war..  :ohmy:

Ah, I may have mistaken T100 of SMK. Still. Russians field tested lot of their tank prototypes and models against Finland during winter war especially. Knowing how much of those got captured, maybe some of them end up in Parola?

Me and my friend didn't make it in the end. I'm kinda disappointed, I'm sure it would have been a lot of fun.

Now why don't our in-game vehicles sound like that? I only mean the gear shifting. I hate to think that my driver has his one hand free from gear-shifting and doesn't help the loader load the shell faster!! :)

Nice event you had. I am a bit jealous.

Thanks, great idea and shall put on my "to do" list. T100 in particular is a great subject, one of the first times we hear of it was linked with the KV Series when they were used in Karelia (experimental) in 1939/40. They were put into a special heavy tank company under the command of captain Kolotushkin. Aside from the KVs, the company contained an experimental two-turreted T-100 tank.

Massive tank with a seven(or six)  man crew and carrying 150 rounds of ammunition :ohmy:
