 In 1940 the General Staff of the United States announced a competition for the construction of a light vehicle with four-wheel drive that could serve for many purposes. The tender was attended by the American Bantam Company, the Willys Overland Motor and Ford Motor Co. The choice fell on the Willys, which, after a pre-production of 1500 vehicles in 1941 the vehicle was put on the assembly lines and produced in 640,000 units, 277,000 of which were produced from Ford.

 Decals for three Italian Jeeps
This was the reason why the "Jeep" was the vehicle mostly produced from the military industry during WWII. Immediately after the war, the Carabinieri Army were equipped with Jeeps from various A.R.A.R. camps (camps where Italian, German and allies military vehicles left on the Italian peninsula at the end of the war were collected). They remained in service until the beginning of the 50s, when the vehicles began to fail without hope of repair efficiently.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was one of the best airplanes designed during World War II. With over 20,000 units produced from 1941, together with the Messerschmitt Bf 109, it was the Luftwaffe’s most famous bomber. The Focke-Wulf Fw-190 A-8 was equipped with a BMW 801 D-2 two star radial engine, with 14 1,700 Hp cylinders, which allowed it to reach a maximum speed of 653 Km/h. 
It was heavily armed with 2 MG 131 machine guns and 4 MG 151 20 mm cannons. Production of the A-8 version began in the first months of 1944, characterised with an injection system able to increase engine power, for brief periods, to over 1,900 Hp. From 1944 until May 1945 in all the Focke-Wulf factories, more than 6,500 Fw-190A-8 models were constructed, to face the ever more frequent allied air raids.
