The German Me 262 Schwalbe is an iconic fighter aircraft, known far and wide for its effectiveness in air battles… but there was also the Arado 234 Blitz — an excellent jet bomber that is often forgotten in the shadow of the more popular fighter.

And it IS usually tracks — after all, thanks to them, tanks can easily traverse difficult terrain and climb obstacles. But in the second half of the XXth century an interesting alternative emerged, namely wheeled armoured vehicles. Compared to their tracked brethren, wheeled tanks are considerably faster AND cheaper.
