The Brewster F2A Buffalo was an American fighter aircraft which saw limited service early in World War II. It was one of the first U.S. World War II monoplanes with an arrestor hook and other modifications for aircraft carriers. The Buffalo won a competition against the Grumman F4F Wildcat in 1939 to become the U.S. Navy's first monoplane fighter aircraft. Although superior to the Grumman F3F biplane it replaced, the Buffalo turned out to be a disappointment (Source: Wikipedia).

Matilda Hedgehog

Officially known as the Matilda Projector, Hedgehog, No. 1 Mark I, this fitted a Hedgehog 7-chambered spigot mortar in an armoured box on the rear hull of several Australian Matilda tanks. The projector was elevated by hydraulics adapted from the Logan traversing mechanism used in M3 Medium tank turrets and electrically fired either individually or in a salvo of six, from the 12 o'clock position; the fifth tube could not be fired until the turret was traversed to 1 o'clock to move the radio antenna out of the bomb's flightpath. Each bomb weighed 65 lb (29 kg) and contained 30 to 35 lb (14 to 16 kg) of high explosive. The range was up to 400 m (440 yd). Aiming was accomplished by pointing the entire tank; the mounting had no independent traverse, so accuracy was not spectacular, but adequate for the task. Trials at Southport, Queensland, in May 1945 were pronounced complete success, and the Projector would have been impressive against enemy bunkers, but the war ended before it was used operationally (Source: Wikipedia).

Unit: Ratte

The Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte (lit.: Land Cruiser P. 1000 "Rat") was a design for a super-heavy tank for use by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was designed in 1942 by Krupp with the approval of Adolf Hitler, but the project was canceled by Albert Speer in early 1943 and no tank was ever completed. At 1,000 metric tons, the P-1000 would have been over five times as heavy as the Panzer VIII Maus, the heaviest tank ever built (source: Wikipedia).

p.s in the MPB we assume that in mid-1945 and after Maus comes into service the Ratte project is reinstated by Speer and Hitler in order to provide enough firepower against the advancing Red Army.

Unit: CAC Boomerang

The CAC Boomerang was a fighter aircraft designed and manufactured in Australia between 1942 and 1945. The Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation's Boomerang is significant as the first combat aircraft designed and built in Australia. General performance was mediocre. Although lively at low level, performance fell away rapidly over 15,000 ft (4,600 m). In addition, the best European fighters have had much higher speed than Boomerang, and even relatively sluggish fighters like the Wildcat and the Kittyhawk (which would become the main fighter used by the RAAF during the war) were much faster than the Boomerang. But Boomerang found its real use as a close support aircraft in the Pacific Theater (source: wikipedia)

Unit: Ram I and II

The Tank Ram was a cruiser tank designed and built by Canada in the Second World War, based on the U.S. M3 Medium tank. Due to standardization on the American Sherman tank for frontline units, it was used exclusively for training purposes and was never used in combat. A prototype Ram was completed in June 1941 and general production of the Ram I began in November of the same year. The Ram I and early Ram IIs were fitted with side doors in the hull and an auxiliary machine gun turret in the front. The former weakened the hull and complicated production and the doors and the machine gun turret would be discarded in later modifications. By February 1942, production had switched to the Ram II model with a 6-pounder gun and continued until July 1943 (Source: Wikipedia).

The Sentinel tank was a cruiser tank designed in Australia in World War II in response to the war in Europe, and to the threat of Japan expanding the war to the Pacific. It was the only tank to be produced in quantity in Australia. The Sentinels that were built never saw action as Australia's armoured divisions had been equipped by that time with British and American tanks (Source: Wikipedia).

Unit: Marmon-Herrington

South African Reconnaissance Car, better known under as Marmon-Herrington Armoured Car, was a series of armoured vehicles produced in South Africa and adopted by the British Army during World War II. Several different variations were produced between 1940 and 1945. The first version, Mk I, entered service in 1940. It was a long wheelbase four wheeled chassis with drive to only one axle. It was armed with two Vickers machine guns.The Mk II had a shorter wheelbase than the Mark I and four wheel drive by using a kit from Marmon-Herrington that gave a driven front axle. Mk III were extensively used during the North African Campaign, mostly for reconnaissance being the only armoured car available in sufficient numbers, and had a reputation as a reliable, but underarmoured vehicle. In March 1943 a completely redesigned Mk IV/Mk IVF entered production. It was a monocoque with rear mounted engine and a turret-mounted 2 pounder with a coaxial 0.3 in Browning machine gun as the standard armament. The Mark V was of four 8-wheeled designs built as a response to reports of the German 8-wheeled armoured cars. Two prototypes of the 8-wheeled Mk.VI were built in 1943, one with a 2 pounder and other with a 6 pounder gun in an open-topped three-man turret and protected by 10 to 30 mm of sloped armour.

As German forces invaded Vichy's so-called "free zone" in November 1942, they captured 246 D.520s; additionally, a batch of 62 was completed under German occupation.The captured Dewoitines were to be delivered to the Axis Balkan Front and 96 or 120, to Vozdushni Voiski, the Bulgarian Air Force, for use in combat. On 24 November 1943, the D.520s were first used in combat, when 17 B-24s of USAAF arrived in the Bulgarian sky to bomb the capital, Sofia (Source: Wikipedia).

UNIT: Fairey Swordfish Mk.I and Mk.II

Posted: Fri May 03, 2013 2:26 pm
by ZeusImmortal
The Swordfish was based on a Fairey design for the Greek Naval Air Service.The primary weapon was the aerial torpedo, but the low speed of the biplane and the need for a long straight approach made it difficult to deliver against well-defended targets. Swordfish Mk.II was equiped with metal lower wings to enable the mounting of rockets, and it was introduced in 1943. When production ended on 18 August 1944, almost 2,400 Swordfish had been built. The most numerous version was the Mark II, of which 1,080 were made.

Unit: A43 Black Prince

Tank, Infantry, Black Prince (A43) was the name assigned to an experimental development of the Churchill tank with a larger, wider hull and a QF 17-pounder (76 mm) gun. By the time the Black Prince prototypes had appeared in May 1945, the Sherman Firefly had acquired a proven combat record, the Comet tank was in service and the introduction of Centurion was imminent. All these tanks carried the QF 17-pounder or a derivative; all had better mobility than the Black Prince and the Centurion had frontal armour of comparable effectiveness.The Black Prince marked the end of the development of the Churchill tank, and the end of the Infantry tank concept in British tank design (Source: Wikipedia).

Unit: Caproni Ca.111

The Caproni Ca.111 was a long-range reconnaissance aircraft and light bomber produced in Italy during the 1930s. It was a robust and simple aircraft, it was meant to be used in harsh conditions with minimal support. On the whole, this machine was cheap, robust and reliable. It had good performance and could be armed with a variety of ordnance. It was also highly vulnerable. Nevertheless, it served until the early 1940s, when it was replaced as a reconnaissance aircraft by the Cant Z.501 and the Ro.37. It was then used in the photoplannimetric role and as a supplier of isolated troops, this time in the Balkans, after the 'conquest' of Yugoslavia (Source: Wikipedia).
