Almost overlooked it. But on the page https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/halloween-scary-battles/ there is a small line of blue text. 

A closer look reveals that these are GPS coordinates. 


The first one appears at the top of the page, just below the picture linking to the YouTube vid.

On the left-hand side, in small letters, you will see this: 43°25'22.4"N 2°43'22.4"W


If you enter these coordinates in Google Maps, it will take you to a Tapas-bar right next to a football field in the town of Bermeo in Northern Spain (Northeast of Bilbao): 



To see the second one, scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page. 

There, just above the button "DISCUSS ON THE FORUM", you will find this one: 43°36'54.1"N 116°12'08.3"W


If you enter these coordinates in Google Maps, it will take you to a crossroads in the middle of Boise, Idaho: 



Yesterday, I also saw another such set of location coordinates on the same page, this was at 51°09'29.8"N 0°10'06.1"W

That one takes you to London's Gatwick airport, to the outer circle of the satellite terminal there: 



What's the story with these links, why are they there, does anyone know? 

Given the US cruiser Boise, I can well imagine the second link ;-) yet what about the others?!!
