Almásfüzitő is a village in Komárom-Esztergom county, Hungary. During the Oil Campaign of World War II, the Almásfüzitő oil refinery was bombed by the United States Army Air Forces.

Popular culture[edit]

In the 2014 video game Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, an audio tape can be found. On this tape, the heavily-scarred antagonist Skull Face describes a traumatizing incident from his childhood in which the weapons factory his parents worked at was bombed; his parents were killed and he was maimed by burning hot oil. The events told seem to align with the real-life events of the bombing.[1] Adding further credence to his story is that Skull Face occasionally speaks Hungarian to his underlings.
