Was traveling Oslo to Berlin and my son and I visited the Blyskawica.

Wow,  what a beautiful ship.  

First thing I noticed on the dock was the gun configuration.  2x2 in the bow instead of in game 1x2  for the two front turrets.  

The camo was really nice.  got to tour the main deck, then down into the quarters and engine rooms.  The ship is in perfect shape.  The Polish caretakers really are keeping up the ship well.

A worthwhile trip if you can make it to Gdyania/Gdansk.

Very nice! WG should make the guns match the actual ship since the power creep kinda made her obsolete or at least not as effective as she was.

Is there anything at the shipyard commemorating the Solidarity movement?

No!!! Those are 4" DP guns. Blyskavica would lose out on HE pen and have horible arcs.

That torpedo is enormous.

If I wanted a reprimand from the forum admins I could have a field day with that one.

The original guns were swapped out by the British mid war. Pre war configuration is what we have in game.

Wheres the two holes in the rear end? In game, it looks like Blys has a pair of guns sticking out from 2 holes in the rear end.

The torps were much larger than I expected.

Yes,  the original guns barrels (not the breach) were swapped to fire 4 inch shells instead of the original 120mm that we have in game.

There were a lot of Solidarity info all around the port.

Not sure about the guns sticking out of the back end.

My one disappointment was that there was no gift shop to by Blys stuff.  I was hoping to get a model to work on during the winter.

Yesterday was in Keil Germany and saw U 995.  Smaller than similar US submarines that I have been on.

The submarine  was at a memorial to all worldwide navies.  Very moving underground grotto with a stained glass window letting in light that shined on an alter to all nations dead sailors.  Also, it seems that they have banners from a very larger number of navies and officers/men from around the world.  Around the alter were the flags of all the seafaring nations.

 

Off to the German National tank museum today.

I think those were for depth charges. I could see those being removed and welded over to improve seaworthiness in the Atlantic.

Cool. Thank for sharing.

I actually have a good friend in Poland right now visiting family. She is going to try and get over to see the Blys while there. Hope she has time.

Nah, like others have said those are 4" dual-purpose guns that she was upgraded with during the war. I can see that being the top configuration for Grom if/when a Polish DD line comes out.
