 IGN: IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 Review
IL-2 1946 is a collection of all things IL-2 up until this point in time: every add-on, every campaign and every plane, over 300 of the things by the last count.
It sports vertical take-off and landing capabilities (this was 1946 remember, so that's really special), and even though the machine the Nazis designed wouldn't have flown, Oleg Maddox and his team have tweaked it enough to create a flyable plane - one of 32 new flyable planes in fact.
Other aircraft are considerably less surreal yet still dance proudly in the 'what if' arena of war, with jet planes and wire-guided missiles providing more alternate future food for thought, while a smattering of more down-to-earth fighter planes form the expansion's more solid and reliable content.

 1946 Aleutian Tsunami

Despite its enormous size at Scotch Cap, the 1946 tsunami had little effect on the Alaskan mainland, due to the presence of the Aleutian Islands, which absorbed the brunt of the tsunami's power, shielding the mainland.
The 1946 Aleutian Tsunami crossed the Pacific, producing waves up to 30 feet high in some locations at the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, and even had the power to damage fishing boats in Chile.

Since ATM is connection-oriented, hard state, and origin-oriented for transmission, signaling, and multicast, and is bandwidth and QoS knowledgeable, perhaps the simplest and most elegant approach to a native protocol for ATM would include a protocol that shares these characteristics.
Note that the fact that ST-2 does not rely on IP multicast is a strong advantage in implementation of a native protocol for ATM.
Jackowski Informational [Page 13] RFC 1946 Native ATM Support for ST2+ May 1996 One potential drawback to using LAN Emulation or SCMP messages encapsulated in IP over ATM, is the fact that there is no guarantee that the connectivity achieved to reach the target via signaling has any relationship to the data path.

 July 4, 1946
On the basis of the June 12, 1898, (alleged) declaration of independence by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo in Kawit, Cavite, he thought that it was his mandate to correct "history." He thought it would serve better the national aspirations of the Filipino people to adopt that date as the Philippines's independence day.
We cannot celebrate an event that only "resembles the truth." We reckon that it was only on July 4, 1946, when the United States granted it independence that the Philippines became politically free as a country.
To ignore the July 4, 1946, independence is hypocritical.
