    An American M2A4 light tank is assembled in the United Kingdom after it was given to the British as part of Lend Lease in 1941. After Dunkirk, the British army had lost the bulk of it's tanks- many of which hadn't been any good to begin with. The USA was quickly advancing the light tank program to the M3 Stuart, and as such was in a position to send quite a few M2 light tanks to Britain to help in their defense against a possible Nazi invasion. When the invasion did not come, the M2's saw limited service, before they were relegated to training roles.An American M2A4 light tank is assembled in the United Kingdom after it was given to the British as part of Lend Lease in 1941.

    Soviet Infantry were surprised to find the Hungarian Toldi I tank on August 18th, 1944. The Toldi was a Hungarian effort to build a competent fighting machine based on the Swedish STRV M/38 tank chassis, which was hopelessly obsolete by 1942, let alone towards the end of the war.

    A relatively new air-deployable IFV from Russia. It's designation escapes me at the moment.

    A Sherman Firefly (fitted with the huge 3" 17-Pounder Cannon) of the 5th Canadian Division in Putten, Holland, 18 April 1945. The crew have (cleverly) added some extra track pieces from the larger Churchill tanks to give the vehicle some added protection. This Firefly also has the "decoy" muzzle brake on it's gun, about halfway down the barrel, with the "real" end of it camouflaged lightly. The Germans made Firefly Sherman tanks priority targets, and in the interest of staying alive, their crews took plenty of steps to try and keep the Germans from figuring out it was a Firefly until it was too late.A Sherman Firefly (fitted with the huge 3" 17-Pounder Cannon) of the 5th Canadian Division in Putten, Holland, 18 April 1945.
