A pair of Stuarts, check out the hedgerow cutters on the one on the right, no doubt designed for and used in the Normandy bocage.

Here’s a fine example of a German half-track used for heavy hauling. This one really rattled though when it drove by me later. And a great picture of an array of Tanks if I say so myself.

And here, a German Schimmwagen, a type of amphibious car. Next to it, a half-track motorcycle!
