The death of the Japanese light cruiser "Casia" off the coast of French Indochina. On January 12, 1945, the "Casia" as part of the HI-86 convoy was subjected to massive attacks by deck aircraft from aircraft carriers of the 38th US operational connection (U.S Task Force 38). As a result of hits of a torpedo and two bombs, he went to the bottom, taking with him 621 crew members. Only 19 Japanese sailors managed to survive. The fate of the "Kasii" was shared by most of the ships of the Japanese convoy HI-86.



A Japanese coastal artillery shell rupture at the side of the American light cruiser Birmingham (USS Birmingham (CL 62) from the 57th operational compound (TF 57). The picture was taken from the side of the heavy cruiser Indianapolis (USS Indianapolis (CA-35) the operation of the landing of American amphibious forces on the island of Saipan (Mariana Islands).





Launch of the He 60 seaplane from the board of the German light cruiser Nuremberg.



Released small series He-100D-1 was used in the spring of 1940 for disinformation of enemy intelligence. To confirm that the aircraft was allegedly actually adopted by the Luftwaffe, its photos were widely published with different emblems, which should show its wide distribution. For more obfuscation, the aircraft was designated as He-113. In reality, the remaining aircraft of the series were sent to the air defense squadron of its own Heinkel plant in Marien. He-100 combat missions were not recorded.




Italian self-propelled installation of fire support Autocannone Lancia 3RO da 100/17 sample 1941 in northern Africa. In the back of the Lancia 3RO truck a captured 100 mm Model 1916 howitzer mounted; in the Italian army the howitzer was called the Obice da 100/17 modello 16.



German seaplanes Heinkel He-59, Heinkel He-115 and others parked in the fjord in the Norwegian Stavanger region. The picture was taken from the board of the British aircraft Lockheed Hudson from the 18th group of the Coast Command of the British Royal Air Force (No. 18 Group, RAF Coastal Command)
P.S.: so, mapmakers of North areas, look at this landscape..



Soviet soldiers and commanders inspect the German Henschel reconnaissance aircraft Hs.126 captured near Moscow in December, 1941.




The German long-range reconnaissance seaplane Blohm & Voss BV 138 splashed down near the submarine U-255 (type VII C) off the coast of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. The landing was done for the purpose of refueling from a submarine.



Experimental high-altitude Luhftwaffe interceptor Blohm und Voss B.155 V-2By captured by US military in the hangar. Originally, the machine was developed by Messerschmitt AG as a single deck fighter for the Graf Zeppelin aircraft carrier. Further development was carried out by Blohm und Voss. It is considered one of the most bizarre fighter with a piston engine, which appeared during the 2nd World War in the "Third Reich". The V.155 had an extremely large wing span and completely non-standard placement of radiators. The picture shows the unfinished third prototype. Subsequently, he was sent to the UK, where after the exhibition in Farnborough, the plane was transported to the United States for detailed study.




Technical staff launches Heinkel He 114 A-2 (Heinkel He 114 A-2) hydroplane of the Romanian Air Force (Mamaija hidrodrom). Seaplane made in Germany.




Gotha Go 244 transport aircraft (Gotha Go 244, onboard code NI + FQ) of a special purpose combat group KGr.z.b.V. (Kampfgruppen zur besonderen verwendung) Luftwaffe at the airfield.



The crew of the German Dornier Do-26V4 flying boat (Dornier Do-26V4) of the 108th special transport group (KGr.zbV. 108) gets out of the car. A distinctive feature of the Do-26 was that the axles of the screws of both rear engines could deviate upwards by 10 degrees. This protected the propeller blades from water spray damage during takeoff and landing.




German light night bombers Gota Go.145, captured by Soviet troops at the airdrom, the Don Front. At the first plan is the German co-ordinated aircraft Fi 156 Storch.
P.S.: U-2 antagonist ;)
