German Flakpanzer 38(t) Anti-Aircraft Gun - 1.SS Panzer Division "LSSAH", Ardennes, 1944 USMC Willys Jeep with Trailer - HQ, 2nd Battalion, 14th Marine Artillery, 4th Marine Division, Iwo Jima, February 1945

The Flakpanzer 38(t) was designed around the chassis of the Czech-built LT-38 tank and was built from November 1943 to February 1944, entering service in 1944. As the vehicle used the 38(t) Ausf M chassis, the engine was near the middle of the vehicle and the armament was placed at the rear in a specially designed armoured section.

Developed by the Quartermaster Corps, the jeep and other motor transport vehicles were transferred to the Ordnance Department in August 1942. Despite its lightweight, the jeep could perform a variety of functions, including towing a 37mm antitank gun over a 7% grade.

USAAF Douglas C-47A Skytrain Troop Transport French AMD 35 Panhard 178 Armored Car - "LAvalanche," France, 1940
The C-47 was one of the most succesful aircraft ever, praised by General Eisenhower as one of the most important instruments of victory in WWII. Largely a military version of the highly successful Douglas DC-3 passenger aircraft, the C-47 Dakota carried supplies, airborne troops, and other personnel in all of the theaters of conflict in WWII.

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.

US M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage - Unidentified Unit, Northwest Europe, 1944 German Steyr 1500/A01 with 2cm FlaK 38 Gun - Panzer Grenadier Division Grossdeutschland, Poltawa, Russia, 1943

First deployed during the end of WWII and then again in the Korean War, the Maxom quadruple .50 caliber AA machine gun mount was called "Meat Chopper" because of its impressive firepower when used against human wave attacks.

In August 1943, Steyr-Werke indicated to the Waffenamt the possibility of using the RSO as a self-propelled carriage for the PaK40 gun. As a result, a Test Series of fifty was ordered on September 30th, 1943, to be ready within one month. Hitler saw a demonstration of this vehicle early in October, and the fifty were sent for troop trials with Army Group South.
