A clumsy Pacific War worker

During World War II, the Allies deployed around 10,000 special pontoon vehicles not only in the Pacific but also in Europe, which was officially classified as LVT (Landing Vehicle Tracked), although soldiers did not call it anything other than amtrac in transporter version and amtank in the support version with cannon armament. It was also known by the combat name "Alligator" or "Buffalo", and its journey into the US Marine Corps is so colorful that it is worth telling.

Contemporary unarmored military equipment

The following text introduces the reader to the issue of unarmored military technology, which is a key part of military technology, as it ensures the daily operation of the army as well as the logistical dimension of conflicts. The text will describe the historical development, purpose, requirements and current trends of five main categories of unarmored vehicles, namely trucks, light and staff vehicles, motorcycles, artillery tractors and special types of vehicles.

The great wizard of technology

On the one hand, the design of the famous VW "Beetle", which with 22 million units produced became the absolute most successful vehicle in the history of car, on the other hand, a dedicated Hitler armorer who designed one of the most difficult versions of the heaviest tank "Königstiger" and "Elephant", nicknamed "Ferdinand" in honor of the creator - this is not only the technical but also the human scope of the story of this great wizard of technology, which thus agrees with the Faustian fate of another German, Wernher von Braun.
