Combat experience showed that increasingly the 50 mm L/60 gun mounted on late-model Panzer III was unable to deal with enemy tanks at long range.
As the Panzer IV was intended to fill an anti-infantry combat role, early models were fitted with a low-velocity 75 mm KwK37 L/24 gun, firing high-explosive shells.
A lengthened chassis based on the Panzer IV with Panzer III components was used on the Hummel 15cm and Nashorn 8.8cm self-propelled guns.

 Gulf War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The main battles were aerial and ground combat within Iraq, Kuwait, and bordering areas of Saudi Arabia.
In a bid to open the possibility of relations to Iraq, the country was removed from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
Rarely in urban combat does the fighting range exceed 1 km, a range at which theoretically the M1 Abrams tank was vulnerable to the 125 mm gun of the Iraqi T-72 tanks.

Listed below are some of the more common vehicles, all of which were used (in one form or another) by the Wehrmacht throughout the rest of the war (more on that in the next section, below).
The turret is identical to the one mounted on the Char B1-Bis, mounting a 47mm antitank gun with coaxial 7.5mm MG.
Training vehicles have been left off the list completely, as have ammunition carriers (nearly all French tanks were converted to use as ammunition carriers by the removal of the turret, and stats can be adjusted accordingly if a WM wishes to use them in his game).

The middle of the 3 plates on the glove box (or dashboard on the early slat grill MB's, since Slatgrills didn't have glove boxes) in front of the passenger is the plate with the serial number on it.
WWII Jeep engines also had a serial number stamped into a rounded boss on the passenger side of the engine block, behind the oil filter canister.
Just as in WWII, there is some correlation to the Willys frame serial number, however, Willys inventory rotation practices and bare chassis sales don't allow for an exact match or even a consistent correlation in numbers.

 Western Pacific
They were brought ashore in 196 vehicles of the Army's 708th, 715th, and 773d Amphibian Tractor Battalions and their Marine Corps counterparts.
Their first objective was Orote Peninsula; combat units would then push across the island, clear the southern end, and reorient for a sweep to the north coast.
The plan to use armed and armored amphibian vehicles ashore as tanks had to be set aside, since the amtracs were needed more for the ship-to-shore ferrying of supplies.

This is a terrific book, and is primarily a summary and analysis of the available literature on the combat history of the German Tiger I and II tanks of WWII.
In tank to tank combat, the Tigers were incredibly good at killing other tanks, reaching kill ratios up to 13:1 in many cases.
The high kill ratios when they did engage in combat were offset by their tendency to either run out of gas or break down in combat, which resulted in large numbers having to be abandoned (more than were destroyed by Allied tanks).

 Burma, 1942
The only American combat force even remotely available at the onset of the fighting was the fledgling American Volunteer Group (AVG).
During a 24 March meeting with Stilwell at Magwe, the air corps general estimated that his command would not be ready for combat until 1 May. Stilwell accepted that estimate, and Brereton returned to his headquarters in Delhi.
With him were 114 people, including what was left of his own staff, a group of nurses, a Chinese general with his personal bodyguards, a number of British commandos, a collection of mechanics, a few civilians, and a newspaperman.

Critics say embedded reporters are psychologically inclined to see themselves as part of the military operation, and are restricted in what they can report, and who they can talk to (see: Ted Koppel).
Once "classified" became a euphemism for "secret," information that wasn't secret was then called unclassified, which carries the implication that the natural state of information is to be classified, in other words, to be kept secret from outsiders.
