Restock: T-34/76

2072-t-34-Action-Webcard-710

Developed in great secrecy, the T-34 was Russia’s answer to the growing military threat of Germany in the 1930s. Incorporating many new and innovative features, such as the Christie suspension system and sloping armor, its success was considered a gamble by the Communist Party bosses. While the Soviet Union already had a heavy tank series in production (KV series), the T-34 program was given the go ahead. Stalin’s rationale was that the designers could always be executed if the project failed. While not in full production when Hitler unleashed Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union, the appearance of the T-34 stunned the German High Command. Not only was the T-34 able to withstand almost anything the Germans could throw at it, but its 76mm gun could easily knock out both Panzer IIIs and IVs, then the heaviest tanks in the German arsenal.

About the Battleship Yamato:

The IJN Yamato was the lead ship of the Yamato class of Imperial Japanese Navy WWII battleships. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tons at full load and armed with nine 46cm (18.1 inch) 45 Caliber Type 94 main guns, which were the largest guns ever mounted on a warship. Neither ship survived the war. The Yamato was designed to counter the numerically superior battleship fleet of the United States. She was laid down in 1937 and formally commissioned a week after the Pearl Harbor attack in late 1941. Throughout 1942, she served as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet. In June 1942 Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto directed the fleet from her bridge during the Battle of Midway, a disastrous defeat for Japan. Although present at the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June 1944, she played no part in the battle.

The only time Yamato fired her main guns at enemy surface targets was in October 1944, when she was sent to engage American forces invading the Philippines during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. On the verge of success, the Japanese forces turned back, believing they were engaging an entire US carrier fleet. In reality it was just a light escort carrier group that was all that stood between the battleship and the vulnerable troop transports. On April 7 1945, she was sunk by American carrier-based bombers and torpedo bombers with the loss of most of her crew.

About the Messerschmitt Me-262 Swallow:

The Messerschmitt Me 262 was the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before WWII began, but problems with engines, metallurgy and top-level interference kept the aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944. The Me 262 was faster and more heavily armed than the Allied fighter, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor. One of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during WWII, the Me 262’s roles included light bomber, reconnaissance and experimental night fighter versions. Me 262 pilots claimed a total of 542 Allied kills, although higher claims are sometimes made.

The Allies countered its potential effectiveness in the air by attacking the aircraft on the ground and during takeoff and landing While German use of the aircraft ended with the close of WWII, a small number were operated by the Czechoslovak Air Force until 1951. Captured Me 262s were studied and flight tested by the major powers, and ultimately influenced the designs of a number of post-war aircraft such as the North American F-86 Sabre and Boeing B-47 Stratojet. A number of aircraft have survived on static display in museums, and there have also been several privately built flying reproductions that use the modern J-85 jet engine.

Restock: Opel Blitz

2133-action-webcard-710

About the Opel Blitz:

The Opel Blitz was the name given to various German light and middle-weight truck series built by the German Opel automobile manufacturer during 1930-1975. During the years preceding WWII, Opel, a subsidiary of General Motors since 1929, was Germany’s largest truck producer. By 1934, there were four base versions offered of the 1-ton basic model, along with 14 versions of the larger 2 and 2- ½ ton trucks. From 1939, the reliable Blitz 3.6 three-ton version was used in large numbers by the German Wehrmacht armed forces during WWII.

In 1952 Opel presented the basic model in a modern rounded design, reminiscent of US pickup trucks. In the following years, Opel produced various vans and trucks with petrol engines, which at the time was much less economical than diesel engines. In 1968, Opel finally offered a 2,100cm Indenor XDP 4.90 diesel engine, but it came too late to regain lost market shares, resulting in Opel GM deciding to not develop a successor. In 1975 the production of Opel commercial vehicles ceased.

  • Type: Multi-purpose medium utility truck
  • Country of Origin: Germany
  • Initial year of service: 1937
  • Production Total: 95,000 units
