....... We knew that already, in English, Cipher is a code, and I like to think that Ustio is the counterpart to France, with the Belkan/German invasion, also with the foreign legion (mercs).

Pitomnik - can be translated as Arboretum, Brooder, Hatchery, Seminary, etc depending on the context. A weird name for a battleship, in russian it sounds just silly and not the least bit ominous.
Gumrak - Such a word doesn't exist, but there's a town named Gumrak in southwestern Russia.

Ok, I know this post is very old, but, Pitomnik and Gumrak are actually airfields just outside of Stalin/Volgograd that hosted some fairly large concentrations of German planes during the Battle of Stalingrad. Gumrak is now Volgograd International Airport


Just thought someone would find that interesting....
