A Supermarine Camel II of the RAF in Sevilla, 1948.

Designed around the powerful Boulton and Watt BW 506 engine, the Camel II, with a top speed of some 640 km/h (400 mph) and equipped with a pair of 20 mm cannon as well as two 12.7 mm machine guns, was highly respected by Syndicalist and German pilots alike. Widely regarded as one of the best English aircrafts of the Second Weltkrieg, it proved to be extremely effective, destroying a large number of Syndicalist bombers. The first prototype, the Camel II XC205N1 first flew on 1 November 1942, with armament consisting of a 20 mm cannon firing through the propeller hub, and four cowling-mounted 12.7 mm (.5 in) machine guns for which it carried 300–400 and 1,400 rounds of ammunition respectively.

One German pilot, Otto von Bergungzungwaffenstunden, was so impressed with the Camel II that persuaded the top ranks of the Kaiserliche Luftseikrafte to put into service all the captured Camel II that were in flying conditions. Von Bergungzungwaffenstunden, a well known expert in Eastern symbols, used to decorate his fighters with an Indian Swasktika which, accoring to the ace, it gave him luck. The swastika became such a popular symbol that it was copied by several dozens of German pilots. Von Bergungzungwaffenstunden's unit, the 6./Jasta 77, used the Camel II during the summer of 1944, until the unit was equipped with the Fokker Dr CLXII.

The Alvis Aladdin, a 1960s proposal for a recconoissance vehicle for the Commonwealth army which was not accepted. Ironically, the Popular Republic of Brazilia managed to copy the design to produce the EE-9 Cascavel, which was widely sold to countries of the Middle East like Irak and Siria.

Now almost forgotten by his latest films, there was a time when Nicholas Cage was D'Artagnan in Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's The Three Musketeers.

Sudwestafrikan 1st Schutztruppe Brigade during a policing action in the Ovamboland Desert in the 1970s
Granted domestic indepndence in 1973, the Reichsland of Sudwestafrika was Germany's first and only 'white dominion', having been settled by tens of thousands of Europeans in the decades after the First Weltkrieg. With the white minority in Sudwestafrika making up 30% of the country (something enabled by the settlement of criminals and the 'population removal' of hundreds of thousands of Herero) it was believed by the German National United Front Party that the colony was ready for formal independence. The strain on the colonial administration created by the East African Emergency and the Congo Crisis was a large factor in this decision. The Sudwestafrican branch of the DNEF was established as the sole political party of the new Reichsland.

The Sudwestafrikan Schutztruppe were established as Sudwestafrika's primary land military force, designed for counter insurgency operations in the vast plains and deserts of the country. It would be a light, motorized, and widely dispersed force designed for high mobility and supported by helicopters and the Sudwestafrikan Luftwaffe. The Schutztruppe would be accused of many atrocities against the native African population, particularly Hereros and Ovambos, who were viewed as seditious and weren't even permitted to participate in the Sudwestafrikan economy in any meaningful way. The force would be internationally condemned by the League of Nations* and the Cairo Pact in 1965 for the massacre of an entire village of Herero, which was followed up by massive international sanctions against the country by the two alliances.

T-34 and other scattered assortments of tanks rally near the bombed out remnants of the Kremlin, April 1946. This is one of the last photos taken of the Kremlin in its original form
During the 4 month Battle of Moscow (January 1946-May 1946), Russian forces fought desperately to push back the advancing Reichspakt, using whatever military equipment they could scrounge up to fight against the Germans, up to and including obsolete light tanks from the 1920s, such as those seen in the top right. Fortunately for the defenders and unfortunately for the millions of residents and refugees in Moscow, the Germans launched a massive terror bombing campaign against the city in late December 1945, often referred to as the Christmas Bombing. Using over 2000 strategic bombers, tens of thousands of tons of explosive, incendiary, and poison gas bombs were dropped on Moscow over a week. The city was devastated and almost every single building in Moscow would be damaged in some way, with most simply being reduced to rubble. Refugee camps built across the city were razed to the ground, their occupants bombed with nerve gas as they poured out of the city as the Germans unsuccessfully sought to cut of the railways and roads leading into Moscow. These attempts were unsuccessful.

In all, the Christmas Bombing would kill 150,000 Russians, including military and administrative personnel. The only real military value they had was providing the Russians with a multitude of cover for fighting the Germans. Attempts at encircling the city by Walter Model's armored forces failed under heavy and determined resistance, aided by trench networks and anti tank ditches dug by Russians civilians, many of whom had lost loved ones during the Christmas Bombing. Indeed, even in the face of overwhelming air and armored assaults, Moscow held on. This is often attributed to Marshal Vasilevsky's masterful defense of the city, one that is famous even outside of the history community. A practice of initially not contesting gains by the Reichspakt and then encircling and destroying units that entered the city was so commonplace that Reichspakt forces became hesitant to advance without thoroughly bombing the area around them, which was time consuming and expensive, especially in a massive city such as Moscow.

In the meantime, Savinkov stayed in Moscow, personally giving speeches and rallying soldiers to fight the Russians from the bombed out Kremlin, often visiting as close as possible to the front-line as he could get. Some German snipers would swear to the day they died that they had seen Savinkov through their scopes and taken potshots at the Russian despot, though all invariably ended with the assassination attempt being thwarted in one way or another. The last known photo of Savinkov in Moscow would be on the 20th of April, pinning a medal to a soldier by the name of Victor Reznov, a native of Tsaringrad.

With costs mounting and the offensive seemingly gaining no traction, Chancellor Kurt von Schleicher and the German General Staff ordered the offensive called off on the 25th of April. This was strategically timed, as that was the day that Germany built its first batch of atomic bombs intended to be used in anger. Previous tests in the Alps had been successful, and the two Uranium bombs in Germany's possession were considered to be ready for their first combat test. The first bomb would be dropped directly over the Kremlin, or at least as accurately as the Germans could get using 1940s technology. The other would be the believed headquarters of Marshal Vasilevsky and his staff.

On May 1st, two atomic bombs would be placed on two strategic bombers, each flying with an escort of five fighters. Both groups were left alm one by Russian AA guns, as they didn't present a lucrative enough target. Then within one minute, the Earth had three suns in the area around Moscow. Red Square and the Kremlin were destroyed, and Marshall Vasilevsky was presumed dead. Tens of thousands died in the initial blast at least, with hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians dying in the years and decades afterwards due to radiation poisoning. Twin mushroom clouds over a destroyed Moscow was what greeted everyone's front page and newsreels the next day. In a speech to Germany over the radio, Schleicher would declare that the atomic bombs had only been used as a last result to prevent even greater suffering, and stated his hopes that such weapons would never been used on fellow humans again.

Reichspakt forces then relaunched the offensive, rapidly taking ground from the demoralized defenders, who began surrendering en masse to the Germans. Victor Reznov, who continued to fight the Germans as a partisan well into the 1960s would describe the scene as the most depressing moments in his entire life, and indeed Russia's existence in his 1968 autobiography, The Call of Duty. Savinkov would not die in the nuclear blast, which he narrowly avoided after his driver got lost in Moscow on a visit to Marshal Vasilevsky. Ironically, it would be a random shell fired by a random Ukrainian artilleryman which killed Savinkov as he left the city in tears.
 
An unknown picture of Sir Laurence Olivier as a mad pirate in the Caribbean. The film, which was one of the first attempts to bring life to the British film industry after the Liberation, was victim of the lack of funds that plagued the effort.

Dongfeng_1_at_Beijing_Military_Museum.jpg

The Dongfeng-1 ( DF-1 , early codename: 1059 ) short-range ballistic missile was developed by China according to a secret agreement between China and Russian State
Dongfeng-1 is equipped with an RD-101 rocket engine that uses alcohol as fuel . A limited number of Dongfeng-1s were produced in the 1960s and subsequently retired.
Two SS-1 “Scunner” missiles, less warheads, were provided to wang's nationalists in China in the 1950s. These were intended to be a basic (non-flightworthy) introduction to ballistic missiles
The missile began to be copied in April 1958. On November 5, 1960, the first missile was successfully test-fired in Jiuquan , flying 550 kilometers and hitting the target area. On December 6 and 16 of the same year, flight tests of the second combat bomb and the third telemetry bomb were conducted, and both were successful.
On 6 December 1957, the Russian State granted a production license for the SS-2 “Sibling” to China. A team of Russian rocketry specialists was sent to China along with blueprints. The project was also aided by Qian Xue-sen,
The main research units for this missile are the Missile Engineering Department of the Chinese National Revolutionary Army Military Engineering Institute and the 5th Academy of the Ministry of National Defense (Missile Research Institute) located in Harbin .
In Chinese use, the DF-1 was limited by the same issues as the “Sibling” in the Russian State It’s range was too short to threaten India or Japan The DF-1 could not carry the Pr.596, China’s first nuclear warhead. Only a small number of DF-1s were built. Operated by the NRA’s 2nd Artillery Corps, they were retired at the end of the 1960s.
