The Northrop Grumman X-47B is a demonstration unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) expressly designed and developed to operate from the flight decks of the US Navy aircraft carriers. The X-47B flew for the first time in 2011 and has performed, in the following years, several operational tests completed in 2015. The X-47B was used in the test cycles on board the U.S.S aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) and it performed take-off, landing, air-refuelling duties. To optimize the onboard capability the X-47B is equipped with folding wings in order to minimize the space on the overcrowded flight decks of the aircraft carriers. It is equipped with a Pratt & Whitney turbofan engine that guarantees subsonic performance and in its two loading bays it can provide an offensive load of over 2,000 kg.

COLORS INSTRUCTIONS SHEET – SUPER DECALS SHEET FOR 6 VERSIONS
The multirole Tornado is a twin-engine combat aircraft with a variable-sweep wing. This kind of aircraft is the result of a joint development project carried out by British, German and Italian companies.

Tornado can load and use a powerful and varied set of offensive weapons. Thanks to its two powerful afterburning turbofans, the Tornado can reach the max speed of Mach 2.2. The Tornado baptism of fire took place in 1991 during the Gulf War. More in detail, the air campaign of the Gulf War, in which the Italian Tornados IDS took part, began on 17th January.

Great simplicity even in the layout of the frame: just a central tube and the back support for the engine and the gearbox. The Kubelwagen, thanks to its petrol engine with a displacement of 998 cm3, was able to reach the max speed of 80 Km/h. The vehicle did not have 4×4 traction but it was extremely reliable on all types of terrain and it was present on all fronts, often in very tough environmental conditions, where the German Army fought during the entire World War II. The Kubelwagen could be armed with a support for an MG34 or MG42 machine gun.
