Seeing A Unit You’ve Used

It’s an interesting feeling to see a unit one has used or seen in Command in real-life news. For instance, upon seeing a report about the upgrading of the Akula-class submarine Vepr, I went “Wait a second, was that a sub I used in a scenario?”

And after rechecking my LIVE scenario Kuril Sunrise, I found out that it indeed was. It’s something, particularly for units in the “sweet spot” that are neither obvious and the center of national attention (like aircraft carriers) or similar and common enough to be generic-feeling (like individual fighter aircraft). Submarines fit the bill, as do most moderately-sized surface warships.
