Anyways, sorry for the clickbait earlier. I got excited on what I found on the Polar map.

(disclaimer: this wasn't the ship I was using for tier Is. This shot was taken in the training room)

 

So, going back to the Airship. One midnight when I was casually clubbing in tier I, I decided to check out the airship that was flying around along with the TB-3s of the Soviet North Pole Expedition.

At first I thought it was some kind of "holy s*** Regia Marina soon?!?!" hint or some easter egg then I decided to do some google fu about this airship in particular.

Airship Italia was a semi-rigid airship that did some flights over the north pole but crashed on its third flight 25th of May 1928.

 

Its pretty amazing how much history WG is putting in this game.

Those and the planes aren't the only easter eggs on Polar, for that matter :v there's a bunch more and every one of them has a bit of history behind them.

What about the flying V that goes over halfway through the match?

 

Those are the same planes parked on the island at G7/H7 grid of the map apparently. They're TB-3s modified just for the artic expedition.
