Missile Tanks: Weapon of the Future That Never Happened
What is stronger: a spear or a shield? That’s the gist of the eternal arms race: while one side develops a powerful gun, the other finds a way to make their armor stronger — or gives old weapons a new life with the help of modern shells. By the mid-20th century, though, it seemed like engineers cracked the code and found the ultimate way to defeat tank armor: HEAT projectiles and especially ATGMs.

Aigle is Back on the Anniversary of its Launch!

In the early years of WWII, Aigle accompanied convoys transporting soldiers and gold bars, and in the summer of 1940 took part in a raid on Genoa, repelling attacks from Italian boats. Aigle was scuttled at Toulon along with other ships of Vichy France in November 1942 to prevent it from falling into the hands of Nazi Germany.

Canberra: A Jet-Powered Successor
In 1940, as the war was ramping up, the UK was suddenly very hungry for aircraft, and needed as many of them as possible as quickly as possible. In order to maximize the output and strengthen the Royal Air Force, the government decided to employ secondary manufacturers to produce time-tested designs via licensed manufacturing arrangements. One of the companies employed by the Air Ministry was English Electric: it didn’t make any contemporary designs but at the very least wasn’t completely new to the aircraft business.
