Are we going to have any events related to the attack at Pearl Harbor this year? A new flag alluding to the event to fly in my new Oklahoma would be very welcome!
Thanks.

Be advised this is a Russian game and Pearl Harbor did not affect the Motherland!!!!

Just as the U.S. Navy Birthday was ignored!!!

Arizona will be fixed in commemoration of the date.

Her reload was wrong, and the correct value of 40 seconds will be applied.

If you mess with my Arizona, I fear all you will have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill me with a terrible resolve.

They didn't do anything for the centennial of the battle of Jutland, what makes you think they'll do something for this?

That was years ago. They are much more on the ball with this stuff now. We already know they are partnering with an online stream commemorating the anniversary in real time using the in game engine. I am actively wondering if they will have ships that aren't released yet or have been removed with a set of partnered upcoming premium ships to announce.

WGing have been slightly more interested in war museums over battles and Pearl Harbor has a couple.

Who knows ... but apparently one was found (by data mining I guess) ...

Found this in the wiki:

PCEE059_Pearl_Harbor.png
Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary Awarded to players who signed up via the official website in December 2016. None. "The Japanese attack on the American port of Pearl Harbor took place on December 7th, 1941, with more than two thousand servicemen dying in the operation. The attack led to the United States of America declaring war on Japan on December 8th, and to them joining the Second World War as part of both the European and Pacific fronts."

I'm hoping they roll out the USS Nevada for the anniversary next year. That would be cool.

Really?  You might want to look into how much aid the USA subsequently supplied to Russia as an ally.

I think Russia punishes that too.   On the night of 28/29 October 1955, the Axis powers reached out from beyond the grave to strike at the Soviet Union.  The Battleship Novorossiysk (former Italian Battleship Giulio Cesare), blew up in harbor for no particular reason and this is why Italians can't have nice things in this game.

I vaguely remember reading some where they were doing a reenactment of Pearl Harbor using the game engine.

That is what I was saying. Of the major warships involved, most are in the game, or have a sister ship in the game, as they appeared on that day. We don't have California or Tennessee as they appeared on December 7th, as the California in game is her refit configuration which is completely different. However, if they can make slight tweaks to the models, they can put New Mexico's main guns on a West Virginia 41 hull, and they would have Tennessee and California as they appeared. As for the Japanese  task force, Shokaku and Kaga are in game, and Zuikaku looked identical to Shokaku. Hiryu and Soryu have both been in the game in the past, and their models could easily be resurrected for this, leaving Akagi as the only one of the Japanese CVs that has never been modeled. Even the cruisers are in game, as Helena played a big part, as did several Omaha class cruisers. Hiei and Kirishima were escorting the Kido Butai, as were Tone and her sister Chikuma. USS Ward was a Wickes class DD, so yeah, they could potentially do a very detailed recreation of the attack if they have finally modelled the actual Pearl Harbor, which if they have, it had better eventually replace the current Hawaii port we have in game.

Isn't every day related to Pearl Harbor in WoWs nowadays?

You know, planes flying around dropping loads all over surface ships with impunity?
