IS-3 (Iosif Stalin - 3)
Mass production of the vehicle started in May 1945. On September 7,1945, IS-3 tanks took part in the Allied Victory Parade through Berlin. A total of 1170 vehicles were manufactured by the end of 1946, when production was canceled. From 1948 through the late 1950s, the tanks underwent a number of modernization refits.

The IS-3 has more agility and speed than the German Pz.Kpfw. Tiger II, and finds itself at home engaging in close-quarters combat. While the frontal hull armor is not as thick as its German counterpart, it more than makes up for as it is sloped and the tank is agile enough to use it effectively. The front of its upgraded turret is also very well armored and has small weak points, making it difficult to penetrate.

(2) In honor of #armisticeday I wanted to post the most menacing piece of British engineering ever made. Thank you to all the men and women who were a part of the way effort and for keeping this world free from harm.

(1) In the early 1950s, the opening years of the Cold War, the western powers were highly concerned with the amount of powerful armor available to the USSR. In answer to this, the British military developed a ferocious new anti-tank gun, the 183 mm (7.2 in) L4. The race was on to find a suitable mount for this monstrous weapon. It was first proposed to be used as part of the FV215 Project. This self-propelled gun (SPG) design was based on the FV200 Universal tank concept. This vehicle, however, did not go further than the mock-up stage.
Designers tried again, this time with a proposal to mount the gun on the chassis of Britain’s trusty new Main Battle Tank, the Centurion. This vehicle would go under the project title of FV4005.

Universal Carrier 🇬🇧
Otherwise known as the Bren gun carrier.
The universal carrier is exactly that, a small vehicle for carrying things, be it men, supplies, or heavier weaponry. The origins of the vehicle lie in the early Carden-Loyd tankettes of the 1930's, with the Mk.4 being the base of the Universal Carrier.
Compared to the Carden-Loyd Mk.4 tankette, the UC is larger, with a driver and machine gunner up front and a large open area at the rear for up to five riflemen or many other kinds of loads. Power came from a Ford V8 petrol engine producing 85bhp, but with a weight of only 3-4tons depending on load, it is a rather agile vehicle. Suspension is a simple Horstmann type bogies, simple and rugged but the passengers have to hold on for dear life over rough ground.
A huge number were built from the mid 30's all the way up until 1945. They served the British and Commonwealth armies as scouts, transports, and mobile weapons carriers. Armour is minimal, but they could carry a variety of weapons, most common a single Bren gun, but possible setups included a Boys anti tank rifle, a mortar or even (for a modified commonwealth version) the QF 2pdr (40mm) gun.
Due to so many being built, around 57,000 between 1934-45, many found their way into various museums and private collectors worldwide.

M26 Pershing 🇺🇸
The heavy medium.
By 1944, the American High Command was aware of the limitations of the M4 Sherman when facing the big German tanks, the Pershing was pushed into production in late 1944, the result of a line of prototypes, the first, the T20, dating back to 1942.
The Pershing is a revolutionary design compared to the Sherman. Ford GAF petrol engine producing between 450-500hp driving a rear sprocket. The elimination of a driveshaft and frontal transmission meant more space upfront and a lower hull profile. The old tractor based bogies, and complex HVSS suspension was ditched in favour of torsion bars for a better ride. The armour was better than any other American tank of the time, the cast hull front is 100mm with a reasonable slope, while the front hull is 75mm. For firepower the 90mm M3 gun was chosen.
Only a small number of Pershings saw action in WW2, the first units being available in February 1945, mainly due to the long development of the vehicle. Only two would see combat, during the 'mad dash' to the River Remagen. A number of vehicles were also shipped to Okinawa but the island was secure by the time they arrived. Pershings were more widely used during the Korean war, going up against the more numerous T-34-85's, although the hilly terrain proved challenging. By late 1950, the M26's were being replaced by the upgraded M46 Patton tanks.
Despite being not living up the the M4 it was intended to replace, the M26 pioneered many new design features that were used across the entire Patton range up until the 90's.
