  • 2,8 cm sPzB 41

    2.8 cm sPzB 41 was a German anti-tank weapon working on the principle of tapering (conical) barrel. The weapon was officially classified as a heavy anti-tank rifle (schwere Panzerbüchse), although many of its characteristics make it a light anti-tank cannon.

  • A43 Infantry Tank Black Prince

    This tank was a real Super Churchill and, as such, was well-known. Has been developed as a result of the time delay of the project A30 Challenger and as a temporary solution of existing project A41 Centurion.

  • Achilles Mk.IIC

    The M10 is sometimes referred to as the "Wolverine". This nickname was often used on Chrysler war posters, where it probably originated. However, the US Army has never officially used this nickname. British version M10C 17-pdr. was referred to as "Achilles" in some post - war military reports, but the British army never used the nickname en masse.

  • American M10 tank destroyer and its version I.

    In the following article, I would like to present to you the events that accompanied the origin, development and combat deployment of American tank destroyers M10, M36 and the British version of the M10C 17-pdr

  • American M10 tank destroyer and its version II.

    In the first part, we got acquainted with the development of the American tank destroyer M10 3-inch GMC. In this section, I would like to acquaint you with the production and production changes that accompanied it.

  • Second Battle of the Dunes - June 14, 1658 Part 1.

    On October 24, 1648, the Thirty Years' War ended with the signing of the Peace of Westphalia. For several decades, however, Europe resonated with its echoes, in the form of major or minor military conflicts. This period is recorded in the history of the Thirty Years' War as its Post Bellum. One of these conflicts was the Franco-Spanish War ...

  • Second Battle of the Dunes - June 14, 1658 Part 2.

    The following description of the movements and position of the units is written in an opposing form. This means that the right French wing stood against the Spanish left wing and vice versa. In some parts of the article, I also helped myself with a topographical orientation.

  • Harrier - French heritage

    When we say Harrier, most of us imagine the pride of British skill and invention rising from the deck of an aircraft carrier somewhere in the South Atlantic. However, few people know that the trace of its origin leads to the opposite side of the English Channel.

  • M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo

    In the period before the invasion of Europe, the Allied experience of the fighting in North Africa showed the weakness of the insufficient armor of American medium tanks Sherman M4. After the development of the T-14 attack tank reached a dead end, it was decided to use a modified standard model of the M4A3 tank armed with a 75 mm M3 cannon. This tank was classified as M4A3E2 and was nicknamed "Jumbo".

  • M4A3E8 Sherman

    In 1944, the medium tank M4 Sherman reached the peak of its development. The need to standardize individual spare parts in order to simplify work and improve the performance of repair and supply units resulted in the development of the M4A3 E8 "Easy Eight" tank.

  • M4A4 Sherman

    The lack of the original Continental R975 radial gasoline engines forced American M4 Sherman tank manufacturers to look for other power units. After the diesel GM 6046 2x6 (M4A2) and petrol Ford GAA V8 (M4A3) were used as a replacement, Chrysler also came to the rescue. Their standard six-cylinder petrol engine was anything but a tank engine.

  • M4A6 Sherman

    Like the M4A4, the M4A6 had an extended body, which allowed the installation of an air-cooled, star-shaped, diesel Caterpilar RD-1820 engine.

  • The German military graveyard in Važec

    At present, there are 6 official German military cemeteries in Slovakia, where 12,199 German soldiers have found their last rest. The mentioned military cemeteries are Bratislava-Ružinov, Humenné, Hunkovce, Prešov, Važec and Zborov.

  • Welrod Mk.I/Mk.II

    Welrod was a very effective, silent murder weapon developed by the British Special Operation Executive (SOE) at workshops in Welwyn Garden City in 1942 and subsequently produced by the British armory BSA Ltd. Welrod was designed and constructed by a man named Major Dolphin. It is a pseudonym, its real name is still shrouded in secrecy and will probably remain so forever, because the weapon is still classified in the UK as the Official Secrets Act.
