Original Tank Infomation:

The Mark II was first introduced into general service in April 1983 and incorporated several upgrades as a result of the previous incursion into Lebanon. The new tank was optimised for urban warfare and low intensity conflicts, with a weight and engine no greater than the Mark I.

The Mark II used the same 105 millimetre main gun and 7.62 millimetre machine guns as the Mark I. The 60 millimetre mortar was redesigned during construction to be located within the hull and configured for remote firing to remove the need to expose the operator to enemy small-arms fire. An Israeli-designed automatic transmission and increased fuel storage for increased range was installed on all further Mark IIs. Anti-rocket netting was fitted for increased survivability against infantry equipped with anti-tank rockets.

Many minor improvements were made to the fire-control system. Updated meteorological sensors, crosswind analysers, and thermograph optics and image intensifiers gave greater visibility and battlefield awareness.

Kit Infomation:

The United States Coast Guard has added 96 short range HH-65A helicopters to its fleet to replace the HH-52A Sikorsky Sea Guard. Though normally stationed ashore, the dolphins can be carried on board assisting in the missions of search and rescue including drug interdiction, polar ice breaking, marine environmental protection including pollution control, and military readiness. HH-65As are made of corrosion-resistant, composite-structure materials. The shrouded tail rotor is unique to the Dolphin. Also a unique feature of the Dolphin is its computerised flight management system. Sometimes, the system will bring the aircraft to a stable hover 50 feet above a selected object. The Dolphin is manufactured by Aerospatiale Helicopter Corporation in Grand Praire, Texas.

Boeing KB-29

The Boeing KB-29 was a modified Boeing B-29 Superfortress for air refuelling needs by the USAF. Two primary versions were developed and produced: KB-29M and KB-29P. The 509th and 43d Air Refuelling Squadrons (Walker AFB, NM and Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ respectively) were created in 1948 to operate the KB-29M tankers. The 303d Bombardment Wing at Davis-Monthan AFB flew B-29s and KB-29s from 1951 to 1953 that provided training for strategic bombardment and air refueling operations to meet SAC's global commitments. Deployed at Sidi Slimane AB, French Morocco, Oct 5 - Nov 6, 1952.

 

KP-29P

In an effort to improve on the probe-and-drogue system, Boeing developed a rigid flying boom system, which was first used on the KB-29P. The boom was mounted on the aftmost end of the KB-29P, and had two small wings. With these wings, the operator could manoeuvre the boom. The flying boom system became the most common method for in-flight Refueling and was used on KB-50s and KC-97s and also on modern tankers such as the KC-135 Stratotanker and KC-10 Extender.

Houston, here is Tranquillity Base. The Eagle has landed. With these words the world heard that man had finally reached the moon. The Apollo 11 lunar module, Eagle, landed on 20th July 1969 (5 days after launch from the earth) and was the first habitation on the moon. 5 hours later Neil Armstrong, climbed down the ladder and was the first man to walk on the moon. For 2 hours the astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin remained outside with their life support systems. They collected surface samples, set up scientific instruments and described their experience of movement (1/6 of earth gravity). On completion of their mission the astronauts took off in the top stage of the lunar module, went back into orbit and docked with the Apollo capsule in order to start their return to earth.

The Panzerkampfwagen IV was Germany's most important tank during the second world war. It remained in mass production throughout the conflict, with more than 8,000 units being produced. This represented more than one-third of Germany's total wartime tank production. It was the backbone of the Panzer Divisions and it was often referred to as their "Workhorse" The Pz.Kpfw. IV underwent constant improvement throughout its long career. As an example, its original short-barreled 7.5cm main gun was replaced with the long barreled 7.5cm KwK40 L/43 gun beginning with the Ausf.F2 version. The further improved 7.5cm KwK40 L/48 was added to the Ausf.H onwards. In 1944 however, with the introduction of the new Panther and Tiger tanks, plus other tactical considerations, the Pz.Kpfw. IV began to serve mainly in a defensive capacity. A need was required to simplify construction and increase productivity, plus conserve scarce raw materials. The last of the series, the Ausf.J thus had a much simpler construction, and an extra fuel tank replaced the auxiliary engine/generator. This greatly increased its range from 210km to 320km and was welcomed by the German troops, as they were having difficult with their supply, but it was attained at the expense of electric power for the turret traversing motor. The thin steel plates known as Schurzen (skirts), first introduced with the Ausf.G, were sometimes replaced with heavy gauge wire mesh, or not even used at all.

In the early stages of WWII, the German military often used the Sd.Kfz.231 series vehicles for reconnaissance missions. One of these heavy armored cars was the Sk.Kfz.232, which was equipped with a long distance wireless radio with a large antenna protruding from the top of the upper hull. In the turret was a 2cm gun and a MG34 machine gun. The 8- wheeled, Sk.Kfz.232 had an on-road top speed of 90km/h, front and rear driving positions, and a superb 8 wheel drive system. The Sd.Kfz.232 performed extremely well and proved its worth in a number of roles on many fronts from Europe to North Africa to Russia.

  • Various kinds of equipment like early type jerry cans and tools are included adding further realism.
  • Comes in a newly designed package with desert themed artwork.
  • Enhancing the impression of the North African front is a German officer figure wearing a tropical uniform.
  • A soldier figure for the turret is also included.
  • Photo-etched parts such as light protecting net s and an aluminum barrel for the 2cm gun are included.
  • Comes with decals for the North African front (2), Balkans front (1), & Kursk front (1).
  • Displaying this armored car with other 1/35 scale models such as Item 35286 German Armored Car Sd.Kfz.222 would be an interesting diorama.

By the early 1930s, it was apparent to any aircraft designer that the day of the biplane was over: the inherent drag of the layout could not be overcome by any increase in performance, and the layout prevented the airplane from carrying a truly effective air-to-air armament.

      While that was apparent in the design shops, it was not so apparent in the headquarters of most of the various Air Forces.Fighter pilots were still convinced that high-G maneuverability and a fighting style unchanged from that of 1917-18 was still what was needed. The Air Ministry had been "anti-monoplane" from the days of the Bristol M.1C, and there seemed little likelihood of this changing anytime soon.

      Reality had begun to set in by 1930, at least in the RAF, with the issuance of specification F.7/30, which called for a single-seat fighter capable of 250 m.p.h. and carrying four rifle-caliber machine guns, which doubled the armament of all previous RAF fighters. The successful design was to be capable of both day and night operation, with particular stress on a wide field of view for the pilot and excellent landing characteristics.  It was also hinted that "sympathetic consideration" would be given to designs utilizing the new steam-cooled Rolls-Royce Goshawk engine.

      Fortunately for the RAF, the monoplane fighters that resulted from this competition were so thoroughly pedestrian that they failed to make the cut; had this been different, the RAF might have found itself in the position of the French Air Force in 1939 - trying to replace fighters that had been developed just too early to fully participate in the revolution of design that happened after 1934.
