About the F-100 Super Sabre:

The North American F-100 Super Sabre was an American supersonic jet fighter aircraft that served with the United States Air Force from 1954 to 1971 and the Air National Guard until 1979. It was the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. The F-100 was adapted as a fighter bomber, and supplanted by the Mach Two Class F-105 Thunderchief for strike missions over North Vietnam.

The F-100A officially entered USAF service on September 27, 1954 with the 479th Fighter Wing at George AFB, California. By November of the same year, the F-100A suffered six major accidents due to flight instability, structural failures, and hydraulic system failures prompting the air force to ground the entire fleet until February 1955. The F-100 Super Sabre is known for holding numerous achievements including being the first operational aircraft in the USAF inventory capable of exceeding the speed of sound in level flight, and being the first-ever aircraft to successfully perform buddy refueling.

Restock: Mark V (Heavy Tank)

417-markv-action-webcard-710

About the Mark V

The Mark V was a British WWI heavy tank, deployed in 1918 and primarily used in action during the closing months of WWI. The initial intention was for the Mark V to be a completely new design of tank, but parts to craft it didn’t become available in time, so it ended up being an upgraded Mark IV. The Mark V had more power from a new Ricardo engine, and only needed one driver thanks to the new Wilson epicyclical steering gear.

The first tanks arrived in France in May 1918. Four hundred were built, 200 each of Males and Females. The “Males” were armed with 6-pounder guns and machine guns, while the “Females” came with machine guns only. The Mark V was first used in the Battle of Hamel, on the 4th of July 1918. It went on to take part in eight major offensives before the end of the War.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 29 Tons (Male); 28 Tons (Female)
  • Length: 26 ft 5 in
  • Crew: 8 (Commander, driver, and six gunners)
  • Armor: 16 mm maximum front, 12 mm sides, 8 mm roof/”belly”
  • Main armament: Two 6-pounder (57-mm) cwt QF guns with 207 rounds; four .303 in (7.7-mm) Hotchkiss Mk. 1 machine gun
  • Engine: 19 liter six cylinder in-line Ricardo petrol engine – 150 hp at 1200 rpm
  • Power: 5.2 hp/ton
  • Speed:  5 mph maximum
  • Steering system: Wilson epicyclical steering
