    The Jagdpanzer 38 (Sd.Kfz. 138/2), later known as Hetzer ("baiter"), was a German light tank destroyer produced towards the end of WW2 based on a modified Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis.







    The 75 mm Pak 39 L/48 gun of the Jagdpanzer 38 was a modified version of the 75 mm StuK 40 L/48 used in the StuG III and StuG IV assault guns. With this gun the Jagdpanzer 38 was able to destroy nearly all Allied or Soviet tank types in service at long ranges (except heavy tanks) in a fully enclosed armor protection for its crews.

    The IS-3 (also "Joseph Stalin" or "Iosef Stalin" IS3) heavy tank was a continuation of the successful series of tanks fielded by the Soviet Army in World War 2. The series began with the inception of the IS-1 in 1943, this based on the KV series of similar scope.







    IS-3 was essentially a redesign of the IS series as a whole. The first completed IS-3 arrived in the Red Army inventory in May of 1945. However the war in Europe was all but over - Berlin had fallen to the Soviet Army. Some sources indicate that IS-3 heavy tanks were used in the August 1945 assault on the Japanese Kwangtung Army in Manchuria, but that could not be properly verified. By the end of the war, the Soviets IS-3 is the most advanced tank of its kind in the world.

    Because of the vast distances at play during the war, it became commonplace for all sides to field "special mission" vehicles dedicated to the role of long-range battlefield reconnaissance communications. These vehicles, often modified from existing combat models, featured additional equipment and noticeable aerial arrays while possessing some level of self-defense armament.









    Thus came about the SdKfz 232 model (which was the dedicated communications version of the SdKfz 231) distinguished by their large antenna array network affixed over the rear and middle sections of the hull. At least three SdKfz 232 vehicles were assigned to each German Army armored reconnaissance company (reconnaissance battalion) heavy platoon. From 1942 a small Sternantenne (star aerial) was used to replaced the bulky frame aerial when wireless communication technologies become more advanced.

    M3 medium tank saw its first action in the war on 1942, during the North African Campaign - against Rommel's forces at the Battle of Gazala on 27 May 1942. The M3 was generally appreciated during the North African campaign for its mechanical reliability, good armor protection and heavy firepower.







    However the high silhouette and low, hull-mounted 75-mm were tactical drawbacks, since they prevented fighting from a hull-down firing position in the desert terrain. The use of riveted hull superstructure armor on the early versions led to spalling, where the impact of enemy shells caused the rivets to break off and become projectiles inside the tank endangering the crews inside.

    The 3.7 cm Flak 36 was a German 37mm light anti-aircraft gun manufactured during World War II. It had a gas-operated automatic system, fed from 6-round clips, and a cyclic rate of fire of 120 rounds per minute.





    Weight - 1.55 tonnes
    Length - 3.62 m
    Caliber - 37 mm
    Elevation - -8° to +85°
    Traverse - 360°
    Rate of fire - 120 rounds per minute (practical)
    Effective firing range - 4800 m
    Feed system - 6 round clip



    The SdKfz 7/2 is an open-top anti-aircraft gun platform and was not fully armored. The gun shield provide some protection against shrapnel and small arms fire at the front of the gun - however there is no armor at all above and behind the gun compartment. As such the SdKfz 7/2 offers little protection for the flak crew (except the driver only in this model where the driver's position and the engine cover is armored 8mm in thickness). The SdKfz 7/2 is operated by seven men: a commander, five gunners and a driver.

    Flak 38 Anti-Aircraft Gun












    The Flak 38 is a light-weight 20 mm anti-aircraft gun used by various German forces throughout World War II. It was not only the primary German light anti-aircraft gun, but by far the most numerously produced German artillery piece throughout the war.




    Weight - 0.45 tonnes
    Length - 4.08 m
    Caliber - 20 mm
    Elevation - -12° to +90°
    Traverse - 360°
    Rate of fire - 180 rounds per minute (practical)
    Effective firing range - 2200 m
    Feed system - 20 round box magazine



    The large size image....


    Once in combat, the FlaK 38 would prove just as adept at tackling ground-based targets as aerial ones - this accomplished by using special purpose armor-piercing ammunition in place of the exploding aerial type.







    Also this light-weight anti-aircraft gun could be transported to fronts anywhere the Wehrmacht (German Army) was fighting by land vehicle and easily fixed or deployed into place within minutes.

    Steyr 1500A/01













    Steyr 1500A vehicles were produced in Austria between 1941-44. It was produced in three main variants: light truck, infantry carrier (this model 1500A/01) and luxury command vehicle (1500A/02) for high ranking officers (Kommandeurwagen Kfz.21). Some light trucks were mounted with bodies and were used as ambulances.




    Weight - 2.48 tonnes
    Length - 5.08 m
    Width - 2.03 m
    Height - 2.32 m
    Crew - 8 men (A/01 infantry carrier)
    Armour - None
    Main Armament - None
    Operational Range - 400 km (road) 280 km (off-road)
    Speed - 90 km/h (road) 45 km/h (off-road)



    The large size image....



    Propelled by a Steyr V8 3.5 lites engine it had a power of 85 HP and it was all-wheel drive. The large ground clearance of 27.5 cm, the wading depth of 70 cm and the air-cooling made the Steyr 1500A to an ideal cross-country vehicle.




    The roomy but simply constructed car body was perfectly suitable for the usage as personnel carrier for an infantry of 8 men.

    Like many other British infantry tanks, the Matilda II was heavily armoured - heaviest of its era. The heavy armour of the Matilda's cast turret became legendary; for a time in 1940–1941, the Matilda earned the nickname "Queen of the Desert".








    But the Matilda II while an excellent infantry support tank was somewhat limited in speed and armament. One of the major limitations of the Matilda II was the small calibre of the main gun.

    The Panzerfaust ("armour fist" or "tank fist") was a cheap, single shot, recoilless German anti-tank weapon of World War II. It consisted of a small, disposable preloaded launch tube firing a high-explosive anti-tank warhead, and was operated by a single soldier i.e. a "use and throw" weapon on the battlefield.







    The first generation Panzerfaust was in service from 1943 until the end of the war in 1945. Panzerfaust 60 was the most common version, with production starting in September 1944.

    This model had a range of 60 m and weighed 6.1 kg. The shaped charge (also known as hollow charge) works by focusing the explosive energy of the warhead into a jet stream that could penetrate up to 200 mm of armour.

    The Sherman tank was renown for its mechanical reliability, owing to its standardized parts and quality construction on the assembly line. It should have been the ideal tank but the Sherman was also a death trap.

    Most tanks at the time ran on diesel, a safer and less flammable fuel than gasoline. Instead the Sherman’s powerplant was a 400-horsepower gasoline engine that, combined with the ammo on board, could transform the tank into a Hellish inferno after taking a hit.









    Sherman’s comparatively thin armour (ranging from 25mm to 100mm) could be penetrated by the Panzerfaust. If they were lucky, the tank’s five crew might have seconds to escape before they burned alive. Hence, the Sherman’s grim nickname — Ronson, like the cigarette lighter, because “it lights up the first time, every time.”
