T-54-1 SOVIET MEDIUM TANK Mod.1947
The T-54 is a legend. It was used more extensively that any other Cold War or modern MBT to date. The T-54 tanks are a series of Soviet main battle tanks introduced just as the Second World War ended. T-54 tank became the main tank for armoured units of the Soviet Army, it was supplied to or produced by Warsaw pact countries, forming the bulk of their forces during the 1960s-70s. Then it served with the allies in the Middle East (Egypt, Syria, Jordan) and numerous nations among the non-aligned and third world countries. China copied the T-54 under the Type 59 designation and it was also largely distributed among Asiatic nations, notably North Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and North Korea.
The T-54 series of soviet main battle tank came about in the search for viable replacement for the T-34 Medium Tank. Soviet engineers attempted several initiatives to replace the T-34 design with a more modern, refined and reliable tank. One such attempt became the 85mm-armed T-44. But the Soviet Army favored the 100mm main instead. The new tank was designated the T-54 and this version mounted the desired 100mm main gun.
The serial production version, designated T-54-1, started in 1947 and lasted until 1949, about 1490 were made. In 1949 the first modernization phase came with the T-54-2.

The SU-85 (Samokhodnayaustanovka 85) was a Soviet self-propelled gun used during World War II, developed on the basis of the T-34 medium tank and the SU-122 assault gun. Produced from August 1943 through July 1944. The 85-mm D-5S gun allowed the SU-85 to effectively hit enemy medium tanks at distances of more than 1,000 meters and was able to destroy a Tiger tank from 1000 meters out, proving much capable against the newer German tank designs.

F8038, 25th Aero Squadron, November 1918
The history of 25th Squadron began to be written on May 7th, 1917 at Kelly Field in Texas. Transfer across the ocean in January 1918 was followed by training in Great Britain, after which the unit moved again, this time to France. The unit also re-equipped with the SE.5a. On November 10, 1918, the first flights over the German side of the Front were undertaken. The unit was decommissioned the following year at Mitchell Field, New York. This aircraft carried the standard scheme that was applied to British aircraft. American aircraft during service carried national insignia in the form of roundels. This was because of the possibility of the original markings in the form of a five-pointed star on a blue background with a red centre being confused with German crosses. The executioner in black behind the fuselage roundel was the unit marking of the 25th Aero Squadron.
