British M3 Grant Medium Tank - "8", 1st Armoured Division, Libya, 1942 British M3 Grant Medium Tank - "8", 1st Armoured Division, Libya, 1942 (1:43 Scale)

Designed as a stopgap measure until the M4 Sherman tank could come on line, the M3 General Grant medium tank saw action in the North African campaign with both US and British forces battling the Afrika Korps. The M3 tank was unusual because it mounted two large caliber weapons in the body of the vehicle.

German Sd. Kfz. 141 PzKpfw III Ausf. A Medium Tank - "223", 1.Panzer Division, Poland, September 1939 German Sd. Kfz. 141 PzKpfw III Ausf. A Medium Tank - "223", 1.Panzer Division, Poland, September 1939 (1:43 Scale)

As early as 1934/35, General Heinz Guderian envisioned two basic types of armor to act as the lead elements of the future German Panzer Divisions. The first vehicle was to be armed with an anti-tank gun and two machine guns while the second one was to be a support vehicle, armed with a larger caliber gun.

German Sd. Kfz. 124 Wespe 105mm Tank Destroyer - 20.Panzer Division, Eastern Front, 1943 German Sd. Kfz. 124 Wespe 105mm Tank Destroyer - 20.Panzer Division, Eastern Front, 1943 (1:43 Scale)

The Wespe was designed by Alkett early in 1942, and was chosen as the most practical self-propelled mount for the leFH18 cannon, using the PzKpfw II chassis instead of the PzKpfw III or PzKpfw IV. As an interim measure, the Wespe proved a great success and in February 1943, all further PzKpfw II chassis were ordered to be used for its production.

The 3.7 cm Flak auf Fahrgestell Panzerkampfwagen IV (sf) (Sd.Kfz. 161/3), nicknamed Mobelwagen ("Moving Van") because of its boxy shape, was a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun built from the chassis of the Panzer IV tank.

Soviet T-34/85 Medium Tank - "314", 55th Armored Brigade, Germany, 1945 Soviet T-34/85 Medium Tank - "314", 55th Armored Brigade, Germany, 1945 (1:43 Scale)

The first generation T-34 medium tank made its debut in combat during the summer of 1941, when the Wehrmacht launched its invasion of the Soviet Union. The T-34 easily outclassed the German PzKpfw III and IV models, thanks to its hard-hitting 76.2mm main gun, thick frontal armor, wide tracks, and overall superior mobility.

The M12 GMC was one of the first self-propelled weapons of WWII in the US arsenal. Essentially, the M12 mounted a WWI-era 155mm gun on an M3 tank chassis. The engine was moved forward to provide a working space at the rear of the hull. It was in this space that a WWI Model M1917 or M1918 155mm gun was mounted.

The M4 Medium with an M4 105mm Howitzer was a solution for a problem the US war planners didn't know they had until the Italian Campaign. It turned out the M7 Priest did not work well in the direct fire role it was sometimes called to fill.

USAF General Dynamics F-16C Fighting Falcon Fighter - 88-0454, 8th Fighter Squadron "Black Sheep", Holloman AFB, New Mexico, 2017 USAF General Dynamics F-16C Fighting Falcon Fighter - 88-0454, 8th Fighter Squadron "Black Sheep", Holloman AFB, New Mexico, 2017 (1:72 Scale)

Even at the ripe old age of 20, the F-16 Falcon remains a fast and potent favorite among fighter pilots, and one of the best fighters in its class. Designed originally as a no-frills, single-engine "hot rod", the addition of improved radar and weaponry have made the Falcon a super, lightweight jet. Used mainly as a bomber, the Fighting Falcon can also turn-and-burn with unbridled fury when provoked.
