German Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 Fighter - "Yellow 6," Ofw. Alfred Surau, 9./Jagdgeschwader 3 "Udet," Germany, September 1943 Italian Centauro Tank Destroyer - 1st Regiment "Nizza Cavalleria," Egypt, 2002
Numerically the most abundant fighter produced by either side during WWII, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 formed the backbone of the Jagdwaffe on both the eastern and western fronts, as well as in the Mediterranean and North Africa. Of the eight distinct sub-types within the huge Bf 109 family, the most populous was the G-model, of which over 30,000 were built between 1941-45.

The Centauro family of wheeled armored fighting vehicles has been developed by Iveco Fiat Oto Melara Syndicated Company, based in Rome. Iveco Fiat is responsible for the vehicle and powerpack development and Oto Melara developed the turrets and weapon systems.

German Flakpanzer 38(t) Anti-Aircraft Gun - 1.SS Panzer Division "LSSAH", Ardennes, 1944 USAAF Consolidated B-24D-25 Liberator Heavy Bomber - "Ruth-less," 506th Bomb Squadron, 44th Bomb Group, Shipdham, 1943

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.

Life for the B-24 heavy bomber began in 1939, when the Army Air Corps initiated a request for a new bomber designed to exceed the performance of the B-17. Consolidated Aircraft responded quickly with its proposal, labeled Consolidated Model 32 and, on March 30th, 1939, was awarded the contract. One day short of nine months later, on December 29th, 1939, the first flight of the XB-24 bomber prototype took place.
