    Lets stop spamming ... Try to make this one
    UNDERWATER GIANT - In 1942, Japan commenced building the world's biggest submarines. The 400 foot long I-400 series had a displacement of 3,530 tons and were intended to destroy the Pacific exit of the Panama Canal. They could cruise 37,500 miles and dive to a depth of 325 feet. Each of the I-400s could carry three specially designed seaplane bombers which were dismantled and stored in a watertight hanger inside the submarine. Only three were completed before the end of the Pacific war and survived the massive American bombing of Japan's naval bases. All three were captured and destroyed by the Americans in
    April, 1946.

    This is my favourite :

    SUICIDE?

    Stalin's son, Yakov Djugashvili, from his first wife Ekaterina, now a 2nd Lieutenant in the artillery corps, was captured on May 16, 1942 and interned in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp where he was later shot while trying to escape. (Some sources say he committed suicide by throwing himself at the perimeter fence to force the guards to shoot him) In 1943, an attempt was made by the Germans to exchange Yakov for Field Marshal Paulus who was captured after the fall of Stalingrad. The request was refused by Stalin. Although he grieved for his 36 year old son he is quoted as saying "I will not exchange a private for a Field Marshal".

    Over two million Soviet prisoners of war were liberated by the Red Army. All were to suffer at the hands of Stalin who always maintained that Russia had no POWs in German hands. All were considered traitors to the Motherland for allowing themselves to be captured.

    I've actually been to the sachsenhausen concentration camp, it was pretty creepy. Most of the barracks had been mowed down to be used as a soviet tank parking spot in the war though, but the furnaces, administration HQ and the "prison" was still intact.

    I have had suggestions of the I-1400 earlier, and i think it is really cool, BUT, as i stated earlier, we are out of space.

    Yeah these concentration camps bring really weird feeling when watching them. I've been to Auschwitz a couple of times, mostly as a guide for my foreign friends. I think it's too cruel and terryfing to just imagine how it looked like. Honestly I wouldn't like to be there in the time of massive murders.

    I can't suggest anything more since you're out of space for this map, perhaps some system, minor features but those are things that are needed to be discussed, it would be really good if you made a full list of features. I know it's a lot of text to type but it would prevent people from posting same stuff all the time.

    Not with my system, i assure you. Sure, it has a couple of bugs at the moment, but nothing that can't be sorted before we release.

    @PastTime: I will see what i can do about that; we should propably update the first page of this thread with some features aswell.
    There is certainly room to add more to WiF though, it is just that some of the models people are suggesting have roles that are a bit to obscure for them to justify the space i have to reserve, now that we don't have that much left.

    Very soon.
    I will upload images of the Graf Zeppelin shortly. Then it is only the Yak-9 left.
    Also, i will let Garfield have a look at my airplane system and see if he can't find out why some planes randomly freeze.

    My FAVOURITE JAPANESE ATTACK STYLE

    Banzai charge (from the Japanese battle cry "banzai") was a term applied during World War II by the Allied forces to human wave attacks mounted by infantry forces of the Imperial Japanese Army. The name Gyokusai (Japanese: 玉砕, honorable suicide; literally "jade shards") was however used by the Naikaku Johōkyoku (Cabinet Information Bureau) and the media of the Imperial Japanese regime. These attacks were usually launched as a suicide attack to avoid surrender and dishonor or as a final attempt at maximizing the odds of success in the face of usually numerically superior Allied forces.

    Japanese officers have a "BANZAI" ability, that causes all nearby infantry units to charge with their bayonets/katanas/rifle butts (depending on class) :)
