The 43 class was built by the German locomotive works Henschel und Schwartzkopff in the years 1927-28. The locomotive had a two-cylinder engine and a capacity of 1,880 psi. The maximum speed was 70 km/h. Coupled with a tender type 2'2 T32 it could carry 10 tonnes of coal and 32 m³ of water. The length over buffers was 22,615 mm. Later the 43 class locos were often coupled with type 2'2 T30 short tenders. In addition many locomotives received Wagner und Witte type wind deflectors. Coupled with a type 2'2 T30 tender it could carry 10 tonnes of coal and 30 m³ of water. The length over buffers was 21,920 mm. The last 43 class locos went out of service in 1967.

The new type Sherman M4A1 was introduced in January 1944. Despite an improved 76 mm gun and a completely new turret, the armament continued to be deficient so that the front end and sides would frequently require additional protection. Thanks to their superior numbers and good manoeuvrability, the American Sherman managed to stand up to the German tanks. This tank has been deployed in many war theatres.

The Bf109 is one of the Luftwaffe's most famous World War II fighter aircraft. More than 33,000 Bf109's were built in many different versions. Both its climbing capability and acceleration in the dive were two of the Bf109s strong points. In production since the summer of 1942, the Bf109G series displayed some noticeable changes compared with the previous Bf109F version. The G-5/G-6 had a MK 151/20 mm cannon firing through the engine. Two MG 131 machine guns were installed above the engine. The belt-feed to the uprated armament necessitated aerodynamic modifications to the engine cowling's which gave the aircraft its characteristic "bumps".

The G-6 was used extensively on all fronts from March 1943 until the end of the war. Later production lots of the Bf109 G-6 were given fixed rear cab windows in a one-piece design which vastly improved visibility to the rear. During a further modification the tail was fitted with a rudder that was higher and had a larger area than previous models. With a total of 13000 units, the G-6 was the most widely produced of all Bf109's.

The 250 GTO, that is still regarded as one of the finest of all Ferraris, was designed with the primary aim of suitability for private use, but at the same time for winning races in the three-litre class. The Gran Turismo body shape was aerodynamically optimised and resulted in a perfect combination of suitability for purpose and beauty. The front of the 250 GTO was particularly attractive due to the three cooling vents for the 2953 cc engine. The 250 stood for the capacity of one of the 12 engine cylinders, the O for omologato (= type approved), the FIA approval for races in the GT class. The GTO was shown for the first time in 1962. Thanks to its 300 hp engine and good aerodynamics it achieved a speed of about 280 km/h with acceleration from 0 to 100 in just 5.6 seconds. For three whole years (1962, 1963 and 1964) the GTO dominated its racing class in inimitable style.

Since its establishment in 1939, Peterbilt has been one of the leading manufacturers of high quality heavy goods vehicles in the USA. All Peterbilts are built to the same standards of quality, both inside and out. The highly adaptable 359 Conventional, designed especially for long distance hauling, is available in two lengths. The bumper and bonnet on the 359-13 are manufactured from fibreglass whereas those on the 359-19 are metal. The Peterbilt 359 "Bull Nose" is a typically American truck with a powerful engine and lots of chrome. Its focus on high performance trucks with low maintenance requirements and a long service life, qualities particularly evident in the 359 Conventional, allows Peterbilt to maintain its prominent position in the U.S. truck market. This policy ultimately results in low running costs, efficient operation and a truck that holds its value well.
