MiG-21 fishbed

The MiG-21bis is a delta wing, supersonic, fighter-interceptor jet aircraft. Much like the AK-47 became the everymans' rifle, the MiG-21 has been operated by more than 40 countries worldwide, and has enjoyed the longest production run of any modern jet fighter to date. The MiG-21, in all of its' variants, has fought in wars stretching all the way from the Vietnam War in the 1960's to the modern day Syrian Civil War. Owing to it's unique blend of versatility, ruggedness and maintainability, the MiG-21 remains in active service to this very day. Initially designed as a pure-bred interceptor, the MiG-21 has over the years evolved into a hybrid multi-role aircraft. In addition to a vast Air-to-Air arsenal, it can effectively employ unguided rockets, bombs and radar-guided missiles to destroy ground or naval targets.

F-86F sabre

The North American F-86 Sabre was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. It is best known as the first swept wing fighter which could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights during the Korean War. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the '50s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until 1994. Its success led to extended production runs of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112. The Sabre was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15, NATO reporting name: "Fagot", was developed by Mikoyan-Gurevich OKB for the Soviet Union. The MiG-15 was one of the first successful swept-wing jet fighters, and achieved fame in the skies over Korea, where, early in the war, it outclassed all straight-winged enemy fighters in most applications. The MiG-15 is believed to have been one of the most widely produced jet aircraft ever made - in excess of 12,000 were manufactured. Licensed foreign production may have raised the production total to over 18,000. The MiG-15 is often mentioned, along with the North American F-86 Sabre, as the best fighter aircraft of the Korean War, and among the best fighter aircraft of all time.

Fw-190 D-9 dora

The Fw-190 D-9 Dora fighter was nicknamed the Long-Nose by German pilots as well as the Allies. It featured a more powerful inline engine which gave the aircraft its characteristic long-nose shape compared to the iconic Fw 190A. The Long-Nosed 190 could easily match the best the Allies had to offer at all altitudes. The Focke-Wulf Fw-190 is one of Germany's greatest fighter planes featuring many advances and innovations, it broke new ground in terms of pilot comfort, ease of use, and versatility. First appearing in 1941, it was a rude awakening to the Allies, easily outclassing the best-Allied fighter of the time, the British Spitfire Mk V. In the skies over France, it had no equal for many months as the British scrambled to produce its answer, the Spitfire Mk IX almost a year later.

Bf-109 K-4 kurfurst

The Bf-109 is one of the most well-known fighters of WWII. In 1933 few people would have predicted that this early interceptor research project would result in over 30,000 production examples serving throughout Europe in roles ranging from ground attack to reconnaissance, and providing a mount to most of the world's leading fighter aces. The Bf-109 K-4 Kurfurst was the last of the Bf-109 series to see operational duty and the last in the Bf-109 evolutionary line. The K-4 model series production started in August 1944 and it was the only version to be mass-produced. It was the fastest Bf-109 produced, able to reach speeds of 450 mph (725 kmh) for short periods with full methanol-water boost.

BAE hawk T.1A

The Hawk first entered service with the RAF in 1976, both as an advanced flying-training aircraft and a weapons-training aircraft. It is currently used at RAF Valley for fast-jet pilot advanced flying training with No 208(R) Squadron, and at RAF Scampton by the RAF Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. It is also used for tactical and advanced fast-jet weapons systems training. The Hawk is used to teach air combat, air-to-air firing, air-to-ground firing and low-flying techniques and operational procedures. The T-45C Goshawk is a highly modified version of the BAE Hawk and is fully carrier capable. It was developed as a training aircraft for the US Navy and US Marine Corps.

Su-25 frogfoot

The Su-25 Frogfoot bears little resemblance to the U.S. A-10A, but it was designed for a very similar Close Air Support (CAS) ground-attack mission. The Su-25 was built to operate near the forward edge of the battle area (FEBA) from rough, "unimproved" airstrips, and can carry a loadout with tools, spare parts, auxiliary power supply, a pump for manual refueling and other "self deployment" supplies. It carries a wide variety of weapons for missions including anti-personnel, runway denial, and tank killing.

Su-25T frogfoot

The Sukhoi Su-25T Frogfoot is a single-seat, twin-engine jet aircraft developed in the Soviet Union. It was designed to provide close air support for the Soviet Ground Forces. The Su-25T (Tankovy) is a dedicated antitank version, which has been combat-tested with notable success in Chechnya. Russian air and ground forces nicknamed it "Gratch" ("Rook"). It has all-weather and night attack capability. In addition to the full arsenal of weapons of the standard Su-25, the Su-25T can employ the KAB-500Kr TV-guided bomb and the semi-active laser-guided Kh-25ML. Its enlarged nose cone houses the Shkval optical TV and aiming system with the Prichal laser rangefinder and target designator. It can also carry Vikhr laser-guided, tube-launched missiles, which is its main antitank armament.

M60A3 patton

The M60 Patton is a main battle tank introduced in December 1960. With the United States Army's deactivation of their last heavy tank battalion, the M60 became the Army's primary tank during the Cold War. Although developed from the M48 Patton, the M60 series was never officially classified as a Patton tank, but as a "product-improved descendant" of the Patton series. The M60 was criticized for its high profile and limited cross-country mobility, but proved reliable and underwent many updates over its service life. It was widely used by the U.S. and its Cold War allies, especially those in NATO, and remains in service throughout the world today despite having been superseded by the M1 Abrams in the U.S. military. Egypt is currently the largest operator with 1,716 upgraded M60A3s, Turkey is second with 866 upgraded units in service, and Israel is third with over 700 units of Israeli variants.

leopard 1A3

The Leopard 1 is a main battle tank designed and produced in West Germany. It first entered service in 1965. The Leopard used a German-built version of the British L7 105-mm gun, and had improved cross-country performance that was unmatched by other designs of the era. 6,485 Leopard tanks have been built to date, of which 4,744 were battle tanks and 1,741 were utility and anti-aircraft variants. The Leopard quickly became a standard of European forces, and eventually served as the main battle tank in over a dozen countries worldwide. Since 1990, the Leopard 1 has gradually been relegated to secondary roles in most armies. In the German Army, the Leopard 1 MBTs were phased out in 2003 replaced by the Leopard 2, while Leopard 1 derived vehicles are still widely used.

AMX leclerc

The AMX Leclerc, is a main battle tank built by GIAT, now Nexter of France. It was named in honour of General Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque who led the French element of the drive towards Paris while in command of the Free French 2nd Armoured Division in World War II. The Leclerc is in service with the French Army and the army of the United Arab Emirates. In production since 1991, the Leclerc entered French service in 1992, replacing the AMX 30 as the country's main armoured platform. The French Army has a total of 406 Leclercs and the United Arab Emirates Army has 388.

T72-B

About 20,000 T-72 tanks were built, making it one of the most widely produced post-World War II tanks, second only to the T-54/55 family. The T-72 was widely exported and saw service in 40 countries and in numerous conflicts. The turret armour was the thickest and most effective of all Soviet tanks, even thicker than the frontal armour of the T-80B. The T-72B used a new "reflecting-plate armor" (bronya s otrazhayushchimi listami), in which the frontal cavity of the cast turret was filled with a laminate of alternating steel and non-metallic (rubber) layers. The glacis was also fitted with 20 mm (0.8 in) of appliqué armour. The late production versions of the T-72B/B1 variants also feature an anti-radiation layer on the hull roof.

T80-U

The T-80 is a third-generation main battle tank (MBT) designed and manufactured in the Soviet Union. A development of the T-64, it entered service in 1976 and was the first production tank to be equipped with a gas turbine engine for main propulsion. The T-80U was last produced in a factory in Omsk, Russia, while the T-80UD and further-developed T-84 continue to be produced in Ukraine. The T-80 and its variants are in service in Belarus, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea, and Ukraine. The chief designer of the T-80 was the Russian engineer Nikolay Popov.

T90

The T-90 is a Russian third-generation main battle tank that is a modernisation of the T-72B, incorporating many features of the T-80U (it was originally to be called the T-72BU, later renamed to T-90). It is currently the most modern tank in service with the Russian Ground Forces and Naval Infantry. Although a development of the T-72, the T-90 uses a 125mm 2A46 smoothbore tank gun, 1G46 gunner sights, a new engine, and thermal sights. Standard protective measures include a blend of steel, composite armour, smoke mortars, Kontakt-5 explosive-reactive armour, laser warning receivers, Nakidka camouflage and the Shtora infrared ATGM jamming system. It is designed and built by Uralvagonzavod, in Nizhny Tagil, Russia.

A total of 789 FV510 and variants were manufactured for the British Army, and 254 of a modified version (Desert Warrior) were produced for the Kuwaiti Army.

marder

The Marder is an infantry fighting vehicle operated by the German Army. It's the main weapon of the Panzergrenadiere (mechanized infantry) from the 1970s through to the present day. The Marder has proven to be a successful and solid infantry fighting vehicle design. It includes a fully remote machine gun on the rear deck, with rear exit hatch and side gun ports for mounted infantry to fire through. The Marder is currently being replaced by its successor, the Puma. Around 2,100 were taken into service by the German Army in the early 1970s, but the vehicle in its German variant was not sold to any foreign countries.
