Seek & Destroy: Improvements & Refinements
Vehicles in major updates typically take the limelight, so today we wanted to go through some of the interesting additions, improvements and refinements that you may not have seen that are coming in the Seek & Destroy major update!
German Navy Day: Two Ships and a Decal!
On June 14th 1848, the newly formed German Empire founded a navy to confront Denmark, which had established a blockade on German ports. They took part in only one battle at Heligoland in 1849, but were unable to lift the blockade. In 1849, the empire ceased to exist, and in 1852 so did the navy. This memorable date remained and is celebrated as German Navy Day to this day.
