1/35 Leopard C2 MEXAS (Canadian MBT) 84504

 

The Leopard (or Leopard 1) is a main battle tank designed and produced in West Germany that first entered service in 1965. Developed in an era when HEAT warheads were thought to make conventional heavy armour of limited value, the Leopard focused on firepower in the form of the German-built version of the British L7 105-mm gun, and improved cross-country performance that was unmatched by other designs of the era.

The design started as a collaborative project during the 1950s between West Germanyand France, and later joined by Italy,[1] but the partnership ended shortly after and the final design was ordered by the Bundeswehr, with full-scale production starting in 1965. In total, 6,485 Leopard tanks have been built, of which 4,744 were battle tanks and 1,741 were utility and anti-aircraft variants, not including 80 prototypes and pre-series vehicles.

1/35 Soviet SU-122-54 Tank Destroyer 84543

 

SU-122-54 (Object 600) Self-propelled 122 mm gun, based on the T-54A and sometimes known as IT-122. Between 1955 and 1957, 77 vehicles were built with minor differences between production lots (different commander's cupola etc.). The SU-122-54 had a modified chassis, with small spaces between the first, second and fourth pair of wheels and a large gap between the third, similar to the T-62's and a superstructure, built into the hull, housing the 122 mm D-49 L/48.4 gun for which the vehicle carries 35 rounds. The secondary armament consisted of two KPVT heavy machine guns, one mounted as an anti-aircraft machine gun near the commander's hatch and the other mounted coaxially with the main gun. The vehicle carried 600 rounds for the machine guns. The main gun has a fume extractor positioned right behind the muzzle brake, some vehicles did not have the fume extractor. Other variations included a different commander's cupola.

1/72 E-75 self-defense artillery 07126

 

On May 8, 1944, the German military requested the development of a 5.5 cm self-defense gun, a common conventional weapon series (double gun series). This system requires turret protection, and Krupp and Rhein Steel participate in this program and use it on the E50/E75. The car was operated by four or four people and carried 104 ammunition. The prototype turret was completed in January 1945.

1/72 China's strong five strong fighter 01686

 

Qiang-5 is based on the design style of the Western attack aircraft based on the J-6/MiG-19 fighter. In 1966, the Qiang-5 aircraft was put into mass production and began to equip the troops to become the main aircraft of the Chinese Air Force.

      The original design of the strong type-5 used two 30mm cannons, installed on both sides of the nose, and later installed two 23mm cannons at the roots of the two wings. The fuselage has a fuselage internal weapon bay of about 4 meters long, which can mount two 250 or 500 kilograms of aerial bombs. Two weapon bays under the belly can also mount 250 or 500 kilogram bombs. There are also two external beams under the wing. Some aircraft have been modified to mount a 0.5-2 million-ton nuclear bomb.

      Then I continued to improve the upgrade, which eventually made it a huge family. Roughly as follows: basic type; strong-5A; strong-5B; strong-5I; strong-5IA; strong-5II; strong-5III; strong-5M; strong-5K; strong-5C; strong-5D; 5E; strong -5F; strong -5G; strong -5J; strong -5KJL; two-seat type.

      After the Strong-5 was put into production, it produced more than a thousand. In addition to the air/navy equipped with China, it also exported to North Korea, Pakistan and other countries.

1/35 Russian T-80UM-1 main battle tank 09526

 

The weapon of the T-80UM1 "Snow Leopard" main battle tank is a 2A46M-4 125mm caliber smooth-boisted gun with two-way stability. Because of the increased strength of the gun, the gun's shooting accuracy has increased by 20%, and the main components are common with the 2A46M-1 guns currently in production.

      The T-80UM1 features an improved 1A45 fire control system including laser detectors, cross wind sensors, speed sensors, target speed sensors, angular velocity sensors, temperature sensors for weapons and ammunition, and a ballistic computer. In combination, the unique stable drive can allow the tank occupant to maneuver the turret to shoot enemy targets at a speed of 35 kilometers per hour.

      In the past 10-20 years, many countries have actively developed tank active defense systems, but only Russia first developed and put into production. This is the "Arena" system. At that time, there was no active defense system similar to the "Arena" system in the world. The system can defend against infantry weapons, anti-tank grenades and anti-tank missiles, covering anti-tank weapons in any launch mode at speeds of 70-700 meters per second, without regulating the type of guides and warheads.
