German Late Version Sd. Kfz. 171 PzKpfw V Panther Ausf. G Medium Tank - Red 332 German Sd. Kfz. 222 Light Armored Car - Unidentified Unit, Poland, 1939
In many respects, the Panther tank was viewed as the finest armored fighting vehicle of the Second World War. Based in large part upon the Soviet's highly successful T-34 medium tank, the PzKpfw V Ausfuhrung G was built by several manufacturers including MAN, Daimler-Benz and MNH.

The Leichter Panzerspahwagen (roughly "Light Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle") were a series of light 4 x 4 armored cars produced by Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1944.

German Sd. Kfz. 165 Hummel Self-Propelled Howitzer - Unidentified Unit, Poland, 1945 RAF Panavia Tornado GR4 Fighter Bomber - ZA412, No. 617 Squadron, Dambusters 70th Anniversary

The Hummel ("Bumble-Bee") was to be a mere 'Zwischenlosung' (interim solution) until a chassis designed specifically as a self-propelled gun platform could be developed and mass produced. By May 12th 1943, 100 Hummel were to be built for use in the planned summer offensive against the Red Army, code-named "Operation Zitadelle".

During the late 1960's a number of European countries examined ways to replace their existing fleet of combat aircraft using next-generation design techniques. Several countries looked at variable geometry wing configurations as a means of making a plane perform well throughout a wider flight envelope.

British Bedford QLT Cargo Truck - Unidentified Unit, Northern Europe, 1944-1945 French AMD 35 Panhard 178 Armored Car - "LAvalanche," France, 1940

The Bedford QLT lorry was the most common British-made 4x4 truck produced, with over 52,000 supplied to the British Forces between 1941 and 1945. Many of these later continued in service with the British Army in Cyprus, Korea and Malaya.

The Panhard 178 was a 4x4 armored car which entered service with the French Army shortly before World War II. Many of these vehicles were later captured by the Germans after the invasion of France.
