Aircrafts were not only essential in the warfares of world war two, but also
very much everyone's number one concern. All the combatant nations, USA, Germany, Japan, Britain, struggled to keep their aircraft up-to-date. Learn more about aircrafts, and what sorts were use for what here.

Tanks were not used often, but they were essential in every important millitary of the wars. This particular tank is two very important weapons of World War II together. The Flame thrower, and Tank. For more information on these weapons click here.

Machine gun such as the browning 0.5" (12.5mm)
and also early air craft cannons like the Hispano 20mm

World War II had a major impact on warfare, and the different ways of taking on the enemey. During the Revolutionairy war, many ways of warfare changed, but in World War II it was mainly weaponry, bringing out the savage in every one of us. Many people were affected by the jump in weapons. Such as Japan, after we bombed them in avengance of Pearl Harbor. Many of the weapons here were very well interconnected, not being able to survive without the other. Aircraft carriers often had machine guns attached, for a much better advantage from air. Like wise, many of the weapons above needed the others to be able to be stratigical with their attacks. Tanks alone, could not take on an entire army.
