The battles that happened on Polish land go way beyond the myth of horses fighting tanks.:Тролль:

Nice. How long can you complete the mission though? A day? Week? Indefinite?

I wonder if in part 2 they will remember that USSR invaded as well, after saying 'we are friends, comrade' or will they go with 'it had to be done, totally altruistic reasons comrade'. :)

 

Also, it would really help if they actually said the length of this event.

 Pudel, which participated in Poland's liberation

The only liberations of Poland I know in recent history happened in 1918 (independence war with Russia) and 1989 (independence from Soviet Russia). I don't think Pudel tank participated in either of those.

 

1944-1945 just replaced one foreign invader with another, this should not be forgotten or downplayed.

Also Pudel, or "Magda", "Chwat", "Szary Wilk" and the other vehicles took part in the Warsaw uprising.

 

This uprising was squashed like a bug by the germans. With ironically the Soviets in wait, watching relaxedly.

Looking on how the germans solved the "Polish" problem, weakening themselves in the process.

 

To then crush the germans and invade Poland...

 

Some extra history for WG on the uprising:

It is estimated that about 16,000 members of the Polish resistance were killed and about 6,000 badly wounded. In addition, between 150,000 and 200,000 Polish civilians died, mostly from mass executions. © Wikipedia

Poland suffered greatly under both the Soviets and the Germans 

lets all hope that this never happens again

 

still NOT an excuse WG for a complete fiction tech tree of 'Polish Tanks' especially when you consider other Nations that do have real Tanks

still no includedt in WOT

 

just saying

Ok. I have activated the code 3 times. It thanks me each time, and yet the mission is not active in my garage.
Could you please put the freaking date in the news so we know when it starts and when it finishes?

As always, the news section of Wargaming is a joke.

ORLIK is the code. You goto premium store. Go to 'redeem Wargaming code'. Enter the code 'ORLIK' and voila.
