Axis Powers
The AXIS POWERS (German : Achsenmächte, Japanese : 枢軸国 Sūjikukoku, Italian : Potenze dell'Asse), also known as the AXIS and the ROME–BERLIN–TOKYO AXIS, were the nations that fought in World War II against the Allied forces. The Axis powers
Axis powers
agreed on their opposition to the Allies, but did not completely coordinate their activity. The Axis grew out of the diplomatic efforts of Germany, Italy, and Japan to secure their own specific expansionist interests in the mid-1930s. The first step was the treaty signed by Germany and Italy in October 1936. Benito Mussolini
Benito Mussolini
declared on 1 November that all other European countries would from then on rotate on the Rome– Berlin

axis, thus creating the term "Axis". The almost simultaneous second step was the signing in November 1936 of the Anti-Comintern Pact , an anti-communist treaty between Germany and Japan

, or 1991, when the Soviet Union

collapsed . The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, but they each supported major regional wars known as proxy wars

Limousine
A LIMOUSINE (or LIMO) is a luxury sedan or saloon car generally driven by a chauffeur and with a partition between the driver and the passenger compartment. Limousines often have a lengthened wheelbase. Although usually associated with luxury vehicles, the word "Limousine" is also simply a generic term in some countries for a standard sedan bodystyle. It was originally an enclosed automobile with open driver's seat. It is named after a type of cloak and hood that was worn by the inhabitants of the Limousin region that later resembled the covering of a carriage and much later used to describe an automobile body with a permanent top that extended over the open driver's compartment. In modern use, a limousine is a luxury sedan or saloon car, especially one with a lengthened wheelbase or driven by a chauffeur . The chassis of a limousine may have been extended by the manufacturer or by an independent coachbuilder

Chieftain Tank
The FV 4201 CHIEFTAIN was the main battle tank of the United Kingdom during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It was the "most formidable main battle tank in the world" at the time of its introduction in 1966 with the most powerful main gun and most effective armour of any tank yet made. . This was further improved while in service with Chobham armour upgrades. A development of the Centurion , the Chieftain introduced the supine (reclining backwards) driver position to British design enabling a heavily sloped hull with reduced height. A new powerpack and improved transmission gave it higher speed than the Centurion despite being heavier due to major upgrades to armour protection and the armament. It remained in service until replaced by the Challenger 1

M3 Lee
The M3 LEE, officially MEDIUM TANK, M3, was an American medium tank used during World War II
World War II
. In Britain, the tank was called by two names based on the turret configuration and crew size. Tanks employing US pattern turrets were called the "LEE", named after Confederate general Robert E. Lee . Variants using British pattern turrets were known as "GRANT," named after Union general Ulysses S. Grant . Design commenced in July 1940, and the first M3s were operational in late 1941. The U.S. Army needed a medium tank armed with a 75mm gun and, coupled with the United Kingdom's immediate demand for 3,650 medium tanks, the Lee began production by late 1940. The design was a compromise meant to produce a tank as soon as possible
