You got to check these sweet screens!

Vickers Mk.E Type A in the Polish service

Poland bought 50 tanks of this type in the UK in Fall 1931. 38 tanks were transported fully assembled, the rest were sent in parts to be assembled in Poland. These 12 tanks were used for development of 7TP tank that was described in the previous update. Polish tanks were quickly modified by adding large air intakes behind the crew compartment to improve engine cooling. All tanks were delivered in twin-turret version (Type A), without any armament. In Poland, they were initially armed with two air-cooled 7.92mm wz. 25 Hotchkiss tank machine guns (TMG). 22 tanks were rebuilt into a single turret variant. Remaining 16 tanks were rearmed in 1937 by two 7.92mm wz. 30 tank machine guns.

20 mm Flak 38

The 20 mm Flak 38 was developed from the earlier FlaK 30 which had seen service in the Spanish Civil War. FlaK 38 fired 420 rounds per minute, compared to only 280 rounds for the FlaK 30. The increased rate of fire made a difference in anti-aircraft fire where a low-flying target could only be engaged for a brief moment. These screens show combat and transportation modes as well as different paint schemes - winter camo, beginning of the war, second half of the war camos.
