Watching the Chris Nolan movie version of Dunkirk still strikes me as inspiring. Tom Hardy plays the RAF pilot role well. This reminds me of our Operation Dynamo within WoWS. I remember I made a video about the RAF with their involvement in the Dynamo scenario. Too bad we can never play the battle mode again in WoWS.
I mainly use Cunningham on Audacious and Ark Royal, but I was planning on putting him into the Cossack as well to take advantage of his unique consumables skills. I assumed that his Master of All Trades skill (a very useful buffed skill, it was twice as good as the stock JoAT) would be replaced by a buff to both Consumables Specialist and Consumables Enhancements like the Dunkirk brothers get (who also came with MoAT. As it turns out, Cunningham only gets a buff to Consumables Specialist. The only thing I can figure is the Dunkirks got both skills since the crappy buffed smoke screen skill they had went away. I'd be okay with this if MoAT was replaced by the useful Consumables Enhancements while the far less useful buff to the smoke screen diameter was replaced by far less useful (at least for UK ships) Consumables Specialist.
With Operation Dynamo coming back to Operations in WoWS with update 0.7.9, I got a movie that I had not seen that was inspired by the Dunkirk evacuation that I would like to pass on to all. My wife and I watched last night "Their Finest" movie. I got to say I was not bored by it. This movie got me to understand more how the movies of that time was to bolster the English moral during that trying time of history with England. Their Finest (2017) A former secretary, newly appointed as a scriptwriter for propaganda films, joins the cast and crew of a major production. During the London Blitz of World War II, Catrin Cole is recruited by the British Ministry of Information to write scripts for propaganda films that the public will actually watch without scoffing. In the line of her new duties, Cole investigates the story of two young women who supposedly piloted a boat in the Dunkirk Evacuation. Although it proved a complete misapprehension, the story becomes the basis for a fictional film with some possible appeal. Which reminds me of these other Dunkirk films Mrs. Miniver (1942) Dunkirk (1958) So if you got free time and you want to binge watch the Dunkirk movies, here you go for ideas.
