Yūgure was originally a Fletcher class US destroyer that Japan received at the end of 1950’s. So it was modified and used as an anti-submarine and training vessel. Five dual 40mm Bofors cannons allow Yūgure to easily take care of any smaller vessels and aircraft.
The XM8 AGS was a test unit American light tank. Developed in the early 1990’s in an effort to replace the Army’s outdated M551 Sheridan tanks. But only prototypes of this machine exist. The 105 mm XM35 rifled cannon and a 550 hp diesel engine give XM8 enough firepower and mobility. There is an option to install additional composite screens onto the vehicle. Also enhancing its protection.
The F-4F was the export version of the famous Phantom fighter jet for the German Air Force. It’s almost as powerful as the original US variant. The pilot is free to choose from a variety of weapons. So, bombs up to 2,000 pounds, Mighty Mouse and Zuni rockets. Plus a 20mm Vulcan gunpods and three modifications of the deadly Sidewinder air to air missiles. These include AIM-9B FGW-2, AIM-9E, and AIM-9J.
